  • Does Your Guy Raid Your Beauty Stash?

    Carrie UnderwoodCarrie Underwood

    Carrie Underwood may have to start hiding her beauty products under lock and key. According to the country singer, her professional hockey husband Mike Fisher likes to help himself to her moisturizer.

    "Honestly, he will steal my Olay Complete - and I am being one-thousand percent honest," she tells People Magazine. "He will go golfing and he's not going to wear anything that smells like a girl and he doesn't like putting straight up sunscreen on, so he will steal my bottles!"

    Underwood is a spokesperson for the beauty brand, so we're sure she has no problem getting her hands on more, but I love that she faces the same problem most women do: having a sticky-fingered boyfriend/husband!

    My own husband will roll his eyes when I bring home yet another mascara or tube of lipstick, but his face will immediately brighten when he sees the words "anti-aging" on a skin cream jar. "This is for me, right?" he'll ask, taking

    Heidi Klum arrived on the Emmys red carpet looking one part Guy Bourdin-vintage, one part Grecian goddess, with long lashes and voluminous waves - classic, but in no way boring. Here's how hairstylist Oribe created the look:

    Step 1: Blow out hair with Oribe Volumista ($34, Oribe.com), using a round brush.

    Step 2: Spray sections of hair with Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray ($32, Oribe.com), and use a curling iron to create pin curls.

    Step 3: Once curls have cooled, release them and brush them out with a Mason Pearson brush. Mist with Oribe Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray ($38, Oribe.com) for workable hold and protection against the elements.

    Step 4: Pin one side back slightly to keep it off the face.

    Step 5: Set the whole look with Oribe Superfine Hair Spray ($29, Oribe.com) to keep in place.

  • Women Are Paying $8,000 to Make This Body Part Look like Megan Fox's

    Would you pay $8,000 to make your eyebrows look like Megan Fox's?

    Reformed over-pluckers in NYC and Miami are doing just that, according to the New York Post. "A lot of women want [to copy] the Kardashians, but Megan Fox is far and away the favorite," the Post quotes plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, who performs between 12 and 15 eyebrow hair transplants a month at $4,000-$8,000 a pop. During the procedure, which takes a couple hours, hair is transplanted from the patient's scalp to the area above her eyes.

    Frankly, I'm kind of shocked that Megan Fox's eyebrows are considered the ideal. They've always looked fake and penciled in to me, and I think they actually make her face look older. Plus, the ultra-groomed look feels outdated now - almost a holdover from the early 2000s. Compare Megan's brows to those of the lovely Polish model Jac Jagaciak, who you

    Rashida Jones has paved the way for funny girls everywhere. While she has always exuded that cute girl-next-door vibe, her new spread with Flaunt magazine showed a whole new side of her. The Celeste And Jesse Forever actress donned smudged eye liner and a bold red lip with a messy wet bob. The trick to pulling off Rashida's smoldering lip and eye combo was to keep the hair simple, even bordering on undone. Scroll down for more photos from the shoot.

  • Fall's Hottest Nail Polish Trends

    Summer has come and gone, as have all those neon nail lacquers. Now we're switching up our manis with these fall nail trends - some obvious, like deep reds, and others not so much, like pearly white. (We've always thought wearing white after Labor Day was a fashion faux-pas that just had to be broken.)

    Essie MAC Estee Lauderjeweltones

    Rich jewel tones were all over the fall runways, such as at Karen Walker's show where models nails were polished with CND Midnight Sapphire ($9, Cnd.com). Other jewel tones we're loving: Estée Lauder Black Turquoise ($20, Saksfifthavenue.com), MAC Gadabout Girl ($16, Maccosmetics.com), and Essie Stylenomics ($8, Essie.com).

    Although light lacquers are typically associated with spring, pale nudes and even white are getting some play this fall. Use these simple, chic colors to accompany fall's bolder trends, such as a dark lip or cat-eye. Shades we recommend: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls ($7.25, opi.com),

  • Daily Inspiration: The New Way to Wear Wavy Hair

    I was already obsessing over Elizabeth Olsen's loose, ever-so-slightly wavy hair when I saw the Burberry Prorsum runway look that debuted at London Fashion Week yesterday. The texture here is so natural and relaxed, and I love that it's a little bit piece-y but soft and shiny, too. I've seen hairstylists accomplish this look a couple different ways: one, by wrapping hair very loosely around a wide-barrel curling iron, heating it for just a second to create a bend; and two, by blowing it out and twisting the ends around a skinny round brush.

  • Avoid Christina Aguilera's Mismatched Concealer Disaster

    2012 NCLR ALMA Awards - Arrivals

    Christina Aguilera showed up to the 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards with a bit of a makeup malfunction. In the glare of the bright lights and photographers' flashes, The Voice judge's concealer transformed from camouflage to clown makeup. Don't let her beauty disaster be in vain; learn from her makeup mistakes with these concealer tips:

    Lea Michele Is The New Face Of L'Oréal

    1. Don't use concealer with talc in it.
    Talc is the pesky ingredient that tends to show up in photos. When going to an event where pictures will be taken (and in this Facebook-obsessed culture, when aren't photos being taken?), try a concealer like Physician's Formula Mineral Wear™ Talc-Free Mineral Cream Concealer ($7.65, Physicansformula.com). Their formula will keep imperfections covered and keep you from looking like Casper.

    2. Stay away from brightening/luminizing products.
    We all love a good, healthy glow, but makeup that promises to brighten often leads to white half-moons under your eyes in

    10 Ways To Instantly Look Sexy

  • Get the Look: Turban Head Scarf

    Head scarves are quite possibly the most versatile accessory. They can be worn tied at the top, Rosie the Riveter style, or fully covering the head. The latest trend to hit the runway and red carpet is turban-like head scarves.

    Models donned the look at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 show. Redken Creative Consultant Guido shares how to get the same style at home:

    Step 1: Start with damp hair and spray Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam ($16, Redken.com) throughout. This will give it some texture and ensure that when it's pinned up, it will stay.

    Step 2: Rough dry hair while brushing straight back with a boar-bristle brush.

    Step 3: Wrap fabric headband around head tying at the nape of the neck.

    Step 4: Gather hair into a loose ponytail and secure with an elastic four inches from the ends of the hair.

    Step 5: Fold the loose ponytail up into a messy chignon and pin with open fasteners.
