Katherine Heigl's wardrobe malfunction last week has now hit a soft spot in one Real Beauty staffer's heart. Being born with the curse of two left feet, she fell this past weekend and is now left with a rather embarrassing rug burn looking mark all across her chin.
Get tips to cover any type of skin flaw.
Luckily, we aren't celebrities and can hide in the confines of our cubicles. Poor Katherine had to stand in front of hundreds of people, with only Billy Bush's hands protecting her ta-tas from popping up on every gossip site around the country.
We've all had a beauty disaster, whether it was a dress related accident, or more likely a skin, hair, or makeup mistake. How many times have you woken up on the day before a presentation with a huge pimple? Or went through an entire meeting with lipstick on your teeth? It happens!

Over the weekend, our friend, having struggled with body issues her entire life said to us, "This stems from my mom. Throughout my whole life she was on and off diets and constantly saying out loud how out of shape she was. I think it gave me a complex for never accepting my body as the way it is."Read More »from Are you conscious of beauty-related signals you're sending to your kids?
Yeesh. Talk about a loaded statement. Think about the last time you said something negative about your appearance. Ours dates as early as this past Saturday-we were shopping the new Liberty of London for Target collection and were spewing off a slew of negative comments while in the fitting room.
We're wondering, had our daughter been in the fitting room with us, would we have complained so easily about our "stumpy legs" or "flabby arms" for fear that we'd be sending the wrong impression to her?
Additionally, it's also the nonverbal actions. Think about who you got your beauty cues from growing up. In the late 80s, we wanted huge hair like our older cousin, so we used multiple bottles of

Today's New York Post is gossiping that Reggie Bush was seen "flirting up a storm" at Robin Thicke's birthday party, sans girlfriend Kim Kardashian. Now, we may or may not be giving Reggie the benefit of the doubt, but what is he supposed to do? Sit in a corner all night and not talk to anyone?
Being single girls ourselves, we take extra-special beauty steps before heading out for a night on the town with our girlfriends. A spritz of our sexiest perfume, mega lashes, or a bombshell hairstyle puts us in the mood to dance or socialize the night away.
But what do you do when you're in a relationship and are going out without your significant other? Do you spend as much time getting ready when you have a boyfriend or husband at home as you did when you were a single lady? When you're attached, is it more of a case of "I'm not out to attract anyone, so I don't need to get made up"?

If you caught even a glimpse of the nine-minute video of Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone," you saw some pretty weird stuff. But what we noticed in the world of beauty were the soda cans Gaga wears in her hair during the course of the video. She told E! News the video is about, "the idea that America is full of young people that are inundated with information and technology." But what about the soda cans? Turns out it's a DIY beauty trick! Gaga said her mom used to put soda cans in her hair as a kid to hold her curls longer, and Gaga still does this today! She was spotted at a Sydney airport sporting the same look this week. In honor of Gaga and her beauty prowess, here are other ways your everyday household items can double up in your beauty routine.Read More »from Beauty Products You Already Have in Your Kitchen
Mama Gaga knew what she was talking about. Big in the 60s, this is a great way to set hair for those large, barrel curls. Ladies then used to sleep in them all night (ouch!), but for a quicker, less painful approach, dry and

What Will a Good Facial Do for You?
A facial should leave you feeling pampered, well moisturized, and deep-cleaned. Select a facialist with the same caution you would a manicurist. They must use clean utensils (towels, latex gloves, etc.) for each new customer, especially in terms of utensils used for extractions. Find out which facial procedure is right for your skin type.
Will It Hurt?
When a facialist is extracting blackheads, or squeezing out trapped impurities from clogged pores, slight discomfort is normal. Pain, however, is not. Pimple popping or blackhead removal that is so overzealous it hurts can lead to scarring. Try these pain-free ways to remove ingrown hairs, spider veins, and more common skin problems.

We only need one day of sunshine to have us kicking off our stockings and gearing up for the warmer weather. It's time for the heavy clothes, and in some cases heavy hair to go. If you're looking to shed your locks in exchange for shorter, flirty hair, take a look at three bob styles that are hot in salons this spring:Read More »from 3 New Bob Styles to Try This Spring
The Classic Bob
This look never goes out of style, no matter what season it is. Whether you opt for a longer look like Iman's or the staple short and blunt cut, this bob is great for those who want to get their hair cut in the beginning of spring and not have to worry about it through the summer. For the most modern feel, ask your stylist for long, angled bangs that can be worn swept to one side or pulled back. Keep bangs sleek and frizz-free with a smoothing serum like Phyto Phytolisse Finishing Serum and style with a round brush.

Apply a green eyeliner on the inner rim (waterline) to get a subtle hint of color. Great for brown, hazel and green eyes. Pair with bronze shadows to make your lash lines pop.
If you want to take it up a notch, there's a slew of green shadows to choose from, ranging in light honeydew melon hues to pine forest greens. Use a black eyeliner to make the shadow stand out.
Blue-eyed gals can try a hunter green liner like Avon Glimmersticks Diamond Eye Liner in Emerald Glow or opt for a dark brown or black eye pencil instead. In terms of choosing an eyeshadow, you'll want a dark green, or a palette like Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Emerald Isle which includes complimenting shades fatigue-green, ivory, beige and brown. Using all four colors together will neutralize the greens and bring out
Watching Miley Cyus on the red carpet always makes us a little nervous. You never know whether her and Billy Ray will jump into a choreographed pole dancing routine or if her mother and her will be wearing matching, inappropriate mini skirts. Though (thankfully) neither was the case at the 2010 Academy Awards Miley did forget to bring one thing with her to the red carpet - her posture.
See the gorgeous hairstyles we loved at the Oscars.
Holy slouching, the poor girl could not stand up straight to save her life. She was wearing a beautiful dress, with some mega-lashes, but all we could focus on was her hunchback stance and slouching shoulders. We wish Miley had read up on some of these instant posture fixes before hitting the carpet. Her loss is our gain though, and if you have a big event coming up where the Facebook tags will be popping up a plenty, try one of these so you don't have to spend your Sunday afternoon untagging yourself:

Love your mascara and looking to get more out of it? Check out these tips that we've learned from working with a slew of makeup artists and make your lashes better than ever before.
1. Instead of looking head-on in the mirror, place a compact or a folding mirror onto a flat surface and look down into it. This will allow you to see where you're putting the mascara, and any places where it's clumping.
2. Always wipe off the tip of the mascara wand on the inside edge of the tube opening-excess can cause clumping and can get around your eyes, messing up your look if mascara is your last step. Plus, you'll want to use the tip to get your lower lashes and outer corners.
3. Use the zigzag motion favored by makeup pros to saturate all sides of each lash with color. Start with the

Patent red has been seen for a few seasons now, but fuchsia is making its way in as a lip trend. Try NARS lipstick in Funny Face or Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Bit of Berry. Compliment your bold pout with black eyeliner, a beige shadow and a few coats of mascara.
Physicians Formula has new gel liners that are customized to your eye color-the trio includes two neutral shades and one eye-popping hue. (Shown on the left for green eyes). If you're shy on brights at first, line your lash line with color, then work a fine-tipped black liquid liner into your water line (the very inner rim of your eye). This allows the color to peek through while the black tones it down slightly.
