• While at the Mad Men premiere, January Jones did something so very unlike her character Betty Draper Francis, a gal who clings to her perfectly placed blonde bob and minimalistic cosmetics routine like none other. What did the actress (who recently admitted she's sort of a prankster) do? She rocked this twisted French braid-with blue top eyeliner and a gold shimmer lower lash line, we might add.

    January Jones

    What's really cool about this pretty springtime braid is that it's actually three-in-one. A trio of braiding techniques was used to achieve the undone and twisted design that so intricately shows off and exposes her dark roots (there is major beauty envy going on right now). Wella Professional Celebrity Stylist Ambassador, Andy lecompte started off with a French braid, adding in rope braids and completing the look by braiding the three together to create one.

    Want to try it at home? You'll need a few elastics, a clean head of hair, and a straightener. Remember, it's meant to be a

    Medi-Spas have been around for a while, but there is a new beauty trend in town that combines forces to offer multiple beauty services at once. With anti-aging treatments becoming more commonplace than ever, it's not just doctor's offices doling out injections with the promise of eternal youth. In Palm Beach, Florida a salon called-wait for it-Blowtox is a blow-dry bar that now offers Botox and fillers like Juvederm and Voluma from a board-certified physician assistant at the same time. "The concept of Blowtox is to address your complete beauty desires in a one-stop shop," says co-owner Lesley Keenan. "We want customers to leave feeling beautiful from the inside out."

    In New York City's Flatiron, the Warren Tricomi Salon has partnered with Skinney Medspa. The collaboration makes it easy to get sun-kissed highlights and a sexy new bob right along with your choice of Botox, fillers, laser resurfacing and even fat removal!

    Is this the wave of the future? Or do you think these

  • Is Lip Balm Addiction Real?

    Addicted to that soft lip feeling?The Scientist: Marc Glashofer, M.D., a dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon practicing in New York and a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American College of Mohs Surgery.

    The Answer: Technically, there is no way you can get a physiological addiction to lip balm, like you can to a drug. But the ingredients in your favorite chapped-lip-stick could be making your poor pout worse.

    Generally, lip balms are petrolatum-based, or contain lanolin, wax or silicone that work to seal in your lips, helping them retain their natural moisture while also making them feel smoother. No problem there. Some also throw in extra ingredients, such as fragrances, preservatives, phenol, menthol and camphor. The latter three give that tingly sensation that it's really doing something . Well, it might be doing something counterproductive. While some people deal fine with these ingredients, other people get a negative reaction, contact

    Just the other week, we got a couple of awesome fitness pointers from the trainer to many a Victoria's Secret Angel on how to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. So now it seems only appropriate that we share a recent chat we had with Behati Prinsloo, a longtime VS model and natural beauty advocate, on her daily beauty regimen. Behati is the face of the brand's newest fragrance launch, Angels Only, a fruity floral scent with notes of apple blossom, freesia, and violet. (But more on that later this week!) She took us through a day in her very busy life, sharing all the secrets of her beauty routine. Read on to get the scoop!

    Kate Mara is the latest star to go heavy metal with her makeup, opting for gorgeously gold lids at the premiere of Transcendence. While striking, the look is a subtle way to give the lustrous trend a try, and is still sophisticated enough for any occasion. Can't wait to score the same look? We got the scoop from her makeup artist just in time for the weekend.

    After perfecting Mara's luminous complexion, Coleen Campbell-Olwell swept on the gold metallic shadows, using a purple accent along the lower lash line for a pretty pop of color. As for those lush lashes, "I decided to forgo false lashes and instead lined her top lash line with Antonym's Certified Natural Eye Pencil in Noir ($18; antonymcosmetics.com)," she tells us. "To add density to her lashes, I took a small, dense shadow brush and smudged it in." Finally, a dusting of Orlane's Highlight Care Brush ($45;orlane.com) was applied on the inside corner of her eyes for added shimmer.

    We've been breathlessly awaiting Proenza Schouler's debut makeup line since MAC announced the collaboration in October, and finally the collection is here! The technicolor collection features limited-edition tie-dye packaging and embodies that California-surfer-girl vibe from the Proenza's spring 2010 collection.

    According to the press release, "the cool cleverness of the Proenza Schouler woman is captured in a collection of confident color," and we couldn't agree more. The dynamic colors in the collection are vibrant and on-trend (no surprise there) featuring red-orange and nude lipsticks, deep plum nail lacquer, and a gorgeous ombré blush.

    The collection is available at MACCosmetics.com beginning April 21, and at MAC counters from April 24 to May 22, with prices ranging from $18 to $39. Click through the slideshow above to see the full collection and choose which items you want to grab first!

    Puffy, tired, weary no more. These tips take years off and create that "I slept great, thanks!" effect. By Kayleigh Donahue Hodes, REDBOOK.

    1. Shape up brows. The simple act of filling in sparse bits and tweezing strays around your arch is like a mini eye lift, making you automatically look more awake.

    2. Take down puffiness. Pop a metal teaspoon in the freezer, then use the back of it to give swollen areas a light massage. And wait until the puffiness goes down before applying moisturizer, which can plump skin back up.

    3. No makeup on crow's-feet! Sparkly shadow is like a zoom lens on fine lines, and foundation can settle into them. The one exception? Primer, which will blur and fill in crinkles.

    4. Disguise under-eye bags. Taupe eyeshadow grazed right underneath lower lashes helps hide puffiness by making that area recede. (Darker skin tones should use a richer brown shadow.)
