Molly Sims by Elizabeth Siegel Yes, Molly Sims really is that pretty in real life. Also, she wears Zara. (That's the brand's printed dress she's wearing above.) I met her last week at Sephora in Times Square, at an event hosted by the all-natural fragrance brand Lavanila.

They were launching a new fresh vanilla-lemon fragrance (a light citrus scent) and mini versions of their all-natural Healthy Deodorants that smell like vanilla, which Sims has a personal interest in: "When I was working on [Las]Vegas, I had a little bit of an issue with sweating, because I would get nervous and cold sweat," she said. So she turned to a strong ("I won't bad-mouth anyone") deodorant that stopped her from sweating completely--which freaked her out enough to make her consider going natural. "Then I started using Lavanila the day I got pregnant.... I don't use everything natural, but the things I can use and control I do."

photo by Kenneth WillardtI ask for three things from a lip gloss: shine without stickiness, a subtle pink tint, and a yummy taste (after all, studies have shown that we consume approximately 4 to 9 pounds of product per year, so it better at least taste good, right?). And while the first two requirements are somewhat easy to fill, I find myself having to compromise on the third. So many lip products are too sweet, too waxy, or, oddly, too floral. So imagine my delight when I spotted Estée Lauder's Pure Color Sheer Rollergloss in Squeeze in the beauty closet the other day and discovered that not only does it give my lips the perfect glossy sheen, but the scent and taste make it a dead ringer for a watermelon Ring Pop. A few other lip products that taste as good as they look:

photo by Thayer Allyson Gowdy I am super, super pale -- like so pale that you can see my veins under my skin. So I had to self-tan. It was time. Thankfully, I edited this story when I was back working at the mag -- 8 Steps To A Perfect Faux Tan -- and followed the story step-by-step...kind of, at least.
You see, while this process is a really good way to get an amazingly gorgeous, long-lasting, even tan, right now I'm feeling a little bit lazy. So I found a few shortcuts and tweaks along the way.
Face: Instead of the exfoliate-hydrate-apply tanner routine, I've been using Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads, which have antioxidants, exfoliants and self-tanner in each swipe. I mean...I kinda feel like these pads make my whole story moot!

.We think there are few things in life more gorgeous than radiant, shiny brunette hair. Since blonde hair is kind of a spotlight hog in the summer months, we thought we'd speak up about this opinion, lest brown-haired beauties feel left out. And, because maintaining brown hair requires its own unique skill set, we talked to colorist David Michaud of the Frédéric Fekkai salon in SoHo to find out how to properly take care of brunette tresses and get the most out of a chestnut coiff.
In Michaud's experience, many brunettes frequently request lighter hair. However, depending on what type of brunette they are, simply going lighter can present problems if not done properly. "Brunette hair that has been highlighted can end up becoming too brassy, and when the colorist attempts to lift too much color with highlights, the hair can become quite damaged," he explains. To avoid this sad, brassy fate, he suggests lightening hair in stages rather than in one

1. Your makeup feels like it's melting the minute you step outside.
THE FIX Makeup is made to rinse off with the help of water, so it's not surprising that the rise in humidity can cause it to slide away. To prevent this, sweep on a translucent setting powder over your foundation. It combats slick skin without depositing color. Try it on your eyelids, too, to keep eyeshadow in place and mascara from smudging. Photo by Keith Lathrop

2. Your legs and underarms get red and bumpy after shaving.
THE FIX Skin may seem flat, but it peaks around hair follicles and dips into valleys between them. When you shave, the razor can irritate this slightly uneven skin. To help your razor glide more easily, coat legs with shaving cream or conditioner (avoid soap, which can be drying). Pressing the razor down against skin can also cause redness.
