Whether you’re dressing up in your Easter finest for a mid-morning feast or joining friends for a weekend brunch, we think this minty shift is the perfect dress for the occasion. Pair it with heels in an unexpected, complimentary color and a neutral bag (to stuff all the extra muffins in when you leave).


Beauty with Benefits

April 15, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

Just in case you needed a good deed to justify your beauty shopping, the teams at QVC and CEW (Cosmetics Executive Women) are partnering for the Beauty with Benefits campaign to raise funds for Cancer and Careers.

Cancer and Careers empowers, educates, and provides essential tools to people with cancer so they can thrive in the workplace.

The campaign features a PSA by actress Tiffani Thiessen and a two-hour fundraiser on QVC on Thursday, April 17th at 8pm.

“Cancer in the workplace is so prevalent yet it’s an issue that rarely gets discussed,” said Thiessen. “I am excited to work with QVC and CEW to support such a worthy cause. I love that I get to use a fun thing like makeup to shed light on such a powerful message.”

During the two-hour live event viewers will be able to shop products from 19 prestige beauty brands including Fresh, bareMinerals, Philosophy, and more. (The items will also be available online)

For this initiative, 80 percent of the purchase price of donated merchandise will benefit Cancer and Careers, a charitable program established by the Cosmetic Executive Women foundation.

How to Copy Naya Rivera’s Gorgeous Purple Eyeshadow Look

April 10, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

Glee songstress Naya Rivera looked bright-eyed and beautiful at a party in West Hollywood earlier this week. Her fuss-free blown back hair (a 90’s trend that is making a big comeback) gave way to her stunning eye makeup and glowing complexion.

One thing that makes Naya’s almond-shaped eyes stand out even more than usual is the subtle trace of purple eyeshadow you see around the inner corners of her eyes. To get a similar look, we recommend smoothing on a layer of your favorite foundation, followed by a peach blush (we love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin). Dust an illuminating highlighter down the bridge of your nose and over your cheekbones for some additional glow and definition. To start your eye makeup, we recommend using an eyeshadow stick to coat your lid (try Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst), and then dusting a powder eyeshadow on the inner third part of your lid (try Urban Decay Cosmetics Eye Shadow in AC/DC). Follow by tracing a thin line along your top and bottom lashes, smudging it a bit with your finger or a q-tip (for a dramatic look like Naya’s, line your upper and lower waterlines with the same black liner). Finish by swiping on a nude lip gloss and a few coats of mascara.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Talks Love, Weakness, and Life on Television

On joining Fox & Friends after leaving The View
It was like going from hanging out with your sisters to playing catch with your brothers. I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do but I try really hard. My parents gave me the freedom to pursue passions and take sensible risks.

Getting up at 2:45 A.M. for my job…
I don’t even put one foot out of bed without reaching for my concealer. I have concealer everywhere: in my coat pocket, on my nightstand, in my car. The alarm goes of, I hit snooze. I feel for my concealer and I feel for my glasses. I put the concealer on and I’m ready to start my day.

My first date with my husband [former pro quarterback Tim Hasselbeck]…
We met when we were students at Boston College. We got locked out of the dorm we both lived in. There was nowhere to go, so we sat up against a bike rack and fell asleep holding hands. That first date lasted 14 hours. It wasn’t magical—we had our backs up against a metal bike rack!—but it felt strangely comfortable.

What I learned from being on Survivor in 2001…
I don’t like to fish. I don’t like being out in the wilderness. I don’t want to be with an animal that doesn’t have a cute name or an owner. I went in thinking I was tough and I found out I wasn’t tough at all. But I learned that facing your weaknesses can make you stronger.

The biggest misconception about me…
That I’m super-organized and type A. I’m a wannabe type A. I don’t even see the messes I make. Right now I probably have an apple rotting at the bottom of my bag.

How to Get Sarah Paulson’s Subtle, Beachy Waves

April 3, 2014 at 9:22 am , by

Sarah Paulson’s beachy bob with subtle ombre stole the stage (er, red carpet) at the 2014 PaleyFest last weekend. The American Horror Story star recently ditched the bleach blond look that kept our eyes peeled all season during Coven (if you were watching through your fingers, we don’t blame you) and opted for the warm brunette shade you see here.

We’re obsessed with Sarah’s hair color, which seamlessly transitions from a deep mahogany to luscious caramel, while the face-framing waves soften her strong jawline and high cheekbones. She kept her makeup sweet and simple, opting for barely-there mascara and a bold, shiny watermelon lip. For a similar lip color, try Tarte Power Pigment lip tint in Sheer Watermelon. The subtle stain is great for layering, so you can decide how bold you want your color to be, and the hydrating formula leaves your lips feeling natural, not heavy with product.

If you’re considering a short cut, check out this video to figure out which hairstyles work best with your face shape!
