Instagram/badgalriri; Instagram/beyonceLike Rihanna and Beyonce, we've all fallen prey to the selfie phenomenon, but before you click and (more importantly) send, follow this expert advice on how to look your best. Chris Schoenbohm, photographer and co-founder of the app Viewfinder, advises shooting at eye level or above for portraits and in a soft, flattering light. Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, a facial plastic surgeon recommends "smiling with your eyes" - or "smize" as Tyra Banks once put it. "A fake smile is just your mouth. A true smile is when your whole face is laughing," says Spiegel. "Think about sending energy to your eyes or smiling with your eyes, and your beauty will shine into the photograph." And if your hair often looks flat in photos, never fear, your styling skills aren't to blame. Photographer Patrick McMullan adds, "The camera tends to shrink hair in photos." To compensate, dig your fingers into your crown to scrunch hair, or flip your whole head upside down right before the shot. This classic model trick makesRead More »from Selfies 101: Everything You Need to Know to Take the Best Self-Snap
Courtesy; WireImage; FilmMagicLily Collins' sleek half-updo at the premiere of The Mortal Instrument is the exact look we're craving right now-fall always calls for more polish. We caught up with her stylist, Mara Roszak and got the play-by-play on how she created the look. "Lily wore an incredible leather, structured dress by Cushnie et Ochs. I knew I wanted the hair to have a graphic feel with lots of shine," Roszak told us. She started by sectioning her hair deep to the side and then applied Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice ($46 at leonorgreyl-usa.com) to Lily's damp hair and blow-dried it straight. "For an extra sleek look, I flat ironed each section straight down with no bend," said Roszak. She used Leonor Greyl Gel a l'Hibiscus ($35 at leonorgreyl-usa.com) to slick back the sides of the hair and pinned it in the back, leaving the back section down. As a final step to ensure staying power, Roszak misted hair spray all over the head. We especially love the makeup details like sexy, oxblood lips andRead More »from Get the Look: Lily Collin's Sleek Half-Updo

You can bid for a chance to own Carrie Underwood's 2013 CMT Awards gown by Georges Chakra, Miranda Lambert's 2013 ACM dress by Jovani, Blake Shelton's outfit from The Voice blind auditions, plus items from Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and the Rascal Flatts.

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." Almay's Defining Liner in Mocha ($8; almay.com) wasRead More »from Get the Look: Kate Hudson’s Soft Smoky Eye
Courtesy (3)Happy August! In honor of the eighth month of the year we rounded up eight pieces of jewelry featuring August's official stone, peridot. 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.
