As Pantone recently announced, “Sangria” is one of the top ten hot colors for NYFW designers at the Fall 2014 shows.

Becoming a US Olympian is hard enough as it is, but through dedication and strong will, these two ladies developed into true American icons. Wilma Rudolf Wilma Rudolf is a straight up legend. At age 4, Wilma contracted polio, a crippling disease that robbed her of her physical strength.

Rihanna: New Nails for 2014? We’re Guessing She’ll Swap Her Stiletto Shape for Almond

Selena Gomez Almond Nails

While Miley Cyrus is instagramming pics of her pedi, let’s talk about manis for a second. The new shape of 2014 - Almond Nails. The bold trend among celebrities in 2013 of long and sharp “stiletto nails,” or “dagger nails” – loved by Rihanna, Katy Perry & Lady Gaga – will quickly be replaced by a less severe look, a shorter, rounder, softer approach. Although almond nails are the less edgy stepsister of stiletto nails, we’re a little relieved that we’ll be snagging our tights... Read More

Miley may have had more than a few… controversial… moments in 2013. One thing we think she did right? Her over-the-top golden glam nail color in the “We Can’t Stop” video.   Achieve a similar nail look using Sienna as a base, topped with two coats of Oscar. Okay, and we’re actually obsessed with the rings too. You can find similar ones here from Nasty Gal.  

Cat Eyes with Kajal

CatEye

I was curious to see if our new easy-to-use Kajal Eye Glider would be a good fit with Preen's seemingly easy-to-do cat eye tutorial. So I grabbed a coworker, and a Kajal from Product Development, and we gave it a shot. Here's my colleague's attempt: This gorgeous cat eye job? I'm happy to report--it was a piece of cake. Preen's brilliant tutorial walked us through the top lid only--but our Kajal's super soft formula is so simple to work with, we attempted to add the bottom line on our own. Aaaand... Read More
