CourtesyIOMA's Youth Booster and the Mars Curiosity Rover have more in common than you think! The product borrows technology used by the rover on the Maritan surface, and just in time to celebrate Curiosity's first year on Mars, we asked InStyle.com Assistant Editor Marianne Mychaskiw to see whether or not we could expect results on a planetary scale.
"I have a slight obsession with space and astrophysics. While monthly horoscopes are entertaining, my interests always veered more toward astronomy than astrology, and I'll spend hours poring over countless science news pages. Last week, I took home IOMA's Youth Booster product ($220; saksfifthavenue.com), which merged my obsessions of skincare and the cosmos into one sleek bottle. The product is equipped with an innovative sensor cap, which boasts the exact same MEMS technology the Curiosity Rover uses to find water on the surface of Mars. On this planet, the MEMS sensor is used to measure the moisture levels in your skin, and although theRead More »from Editor-Tested: IOMA’s Space-Age Moisturizer Gave Our Skin a Cosmic Glow
Todd Williamson/Invision/APFor the Los Angeles premiere of Clear History, Kate Hudson accented her detailed Balmain getup with a neutral eye and clean skin. Thanks to the earthy color palette and careful blending, her makeup artist Melanie Inglessis achieved a fresh-faced look that still embodied the sexy, smudgy elements of a traditional smoky eye. "Kate's dress was short, textured, and edgy, so I created a rock-and-roll smoky eye with a feminine touch," Inglessis said. She began with Almay's Intense i-Color Liquid Shadow + Primer in Amethyst ($8; almay.com) as the base, then layered on the brand's Smoky-i Kit for Green Eyes ($8; almay.com) on top, concentrating the darker colors into the outer portion of Hudson's eye. "The number one most-important rule is to blend, blend, blend," Inglessis added. "I worked with creams and soft pencils and continuously blended. You want to be able to create the smoky effect to the shape of your eye, so blending is key."

While some may confuse this gem with the popular emerald, peridot leans more towards lime than deep green. If you love the hue, no need to feel green with envy - anyone can rock these sparkling picks.

Bimal Gautam/Photoshot/AdMediaNow that Kate Middleton's a mom, we can't wait to see if she'll change up her look. But as any new mom knows, the first couple months are the toughest since maternity pieces are baggy and pre-pregnancy clothing is still too small. So we asked celebrity stylist Estee Stanley what advice she'd give to Kate if the Duchess were her client. To avoid buying a "transition" wardrobe, Stanley suggests getting some key pieces tailored. "I would bring everything to alterations that she had custom made by Alexander McQueen while she was pregnant and take them in," said the star stylist, who dresses Lea Michele and Jessica Biel. A perfect option? The pastel pink McQueen coat she wore in June to the annual Trooping of the Colour parade in London. "I don't like to waste, so I would reuse those because all of the pieces were great!" To create a slimmer silhouette, Stanley would dress Kate in a lot of black, vertical stripes and empire-waisted looks (like the Jenny Packham blue polka dot dress she woreRead More »from Kate Middleton’s Post-Pregnancy Wardrobe: Lots of Black, Vertical Stripes and Caftans?

From commemorative fine china to silver coins to decorated mugs, enough royal memorabilia has been released to fill one china cabinet, or maybe two.

Courtesy Photo (4)Netflix's new original series Orange is the New Black is making headway as a gritty comedy-drama set in a women's prison. Based on Piper Kerman's memoir of the same title, the series tells the story of Piper (starring Taylor Schilling), whose past as an accomplice to her international drug-runner girlfriend Alex (Laura Prepon) catches up to her cozy life with fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs). It results in her arrest and a year-long sentence to prison where she meets an eccentric bunch of inmates. Created by Jenji Kohan, the same woman behind Weeds, each episode is punctuated with flashbacks of a character's past. The show is incredibly compelling-and the costumes even more so. Costume designer Jenn Rogien, also the mastermind behind the boho Brooklyn look as the costume designer for HBO's Girls, reveals to us the challenges that come with styling prison jumpsuits, combing the city for '90s clothes and testing makeshift 'prison' accessories (like a shower slipper out of maxi pads).
