Apparently in Asia some young ladies love under eye bags, because they're deliberately creating pockets of fat underneath their eyes.
Known as Aegyo Sal (and also referred to as "love bands" by Koreans), these eye pouches located underneath the eye are considered desirable amongst some Korean women.

For some women, putting on makeup before going outside is as necessary as taking a shower. It doesn't matter the destination or the occasion-applying cosmetics has become a must for most. For celebrities in the public eye, looking perfect is even more important, but actress Shailene Woodley has had enough.

"I had boobs about three time the size they are in real life. My stomach was completely flat. My skin was also flawless.

A trim every six weeks? Pssht! There are plenty of follicle fallacies out there, including these 10 bogus myths below.
1. Hair must be washed every day. Bathing your body daily is good idea but your hair? Not so much. Experts recommend only doing so three to four times per week to avoid drying out and damaging your strands. "Hair is a fiber," Paradi Mirmirani, MD, a Vallejo, Calif. specialist in hair research told webmd.com. "Think of a wool fiber: the more you wash it, the worse it's going to look. There's no need to wash your hair every day either." Those with long, thick, naturally curly hair can stand to go even longer than a week without washing. This hair type tends to be dry since oils from the scalp don'tRead More »from The Top 10 Hair Myths Debunked

Hair mousse is back, but don't be scared! The fluffy white styling staple was wildly popular in the '80s and early '90s because of its ability to create lasting volume and hold. When curls and big hair were replaced by sleeker, straighter styles, haircare brands ditched the mousse for more sophisticated products like serums and oils. Now that curls and volume are back in a more manageable way, mousse has returned and it's better than ever.
"We realized mousse was a perfect delivery system for our thickening technology," Eric Spengler, Chief Commercialization Officer of R&D at Living Proof, told fashionista.com. Living Proof is Jennifer Aniston's haircare brand, and since she's never had a bad hair day in her life, we're listening.
