Michelle & President Barack Obama. No particular reason, just… busy.  9. Brad & Angelina. Because parents need to consider which events are worth getting a babysitter for. One that has zero kickbacks toward improving Earth or the many lives on it likely doesn't fall high on the Jolie-Pitt family list. 8. Tom Brady &... Read More

Two Weddings for Kim & Kanye? Not as Crazy As It Sounds!

Planning one wedding is usually more than enough for a bride.

They already picked up a marriage license and everything! Then, their second wedding---a... Read More

Bradley Cooper Taught Me How to Wear Bronzer

Bradley Cooper Taught Me How to Wear Bronzer

I don’t wear face makeup. No powder, no foundation, no blush. I love the idea of bronzer, but I’ve never known how to apply it. With the recent launch of Julep’s Glow, I decided it was time. I started by cruising the net for well-bronzed celebs. But it’s tough to figure out where bronzer ends and blush, highlighter, and/or foundation begin. Women like Kim Kardashian have makeup application down to an intimidating (to me) science: I don’t aspire to master this art à la KimYe—I just want... Read More
