In the spirit of Valentine's Day, MAC Cosmetics is releasing a makeup collection inspired by one classic love triangle: Archie, Betty, and Veronica. The latest cartoon collaboration follows in the fabulous footsteps of Miss Piggy and Wonder Woman, but the Archie's Girls collection is even more exciting because there are two lines, one for each competing girlfriend. Sweet and innocent Betty has been translated into pale pinks and peaches, while daring and brazen Veronica becomes deep shades of red and plum. The Archie's Girls collection will be available online Jan. 30 and in all stores Feb. 7. It's sure to appeal to the heartbreaker in you.
It's been a busy week for Jessica Alba! The star has been jet-setting between Paris for Couture Fashion Week and Park City, UT, for the Sundance Film Festival. But the change in locale did zero to hamper Jessica's status as a beauty babe. She opted for a Parisian-chic red lipstick, apricot cheek, and sweet chignon at the Dior Spring/Summer 2013 couture show. In Park City, Jessica swung between a mod beehive and relaxed waves with a pink lipstick. Versatility is always ace in a beauty routine, but which of Jessica's looks did you love the most?
Hollywood stars seem to be flocking to the salon lately, and Vanessa Hudgens is the most recent one to take the big chop. Last night at the L'Amour for JCPenney launch party, she debuted a new shoulder-grazing hairstyle. This cut is a happy medium between her extralong hair and the pixie she sported back in 2011. It seems like Karlie Kloss's "the chop" is taking hold in 2013, with Nicole Richie debuting a similar style earlier this week and other stars like Selita Ebanks and Nicole Kidman ditching their long locks for a shorter look, too. From her edgy nail design and new cut to her risqué role in Spring Breakers, Vanessa seems to have moved on from her Disney days.

They say that behind every great man, there is a great woman. While that may or may not be true, it's pretty safe to say that behind every great woman, there is a great hairstyle. That fact was made crystal clear when First Lady Michelle Obama stepped out with her choppy fringe earlier this week. Whether they're reigning over a kingdom or reigning over Vogue, the ladies who come to mind when the words "power woman" are spoken all have one thing in common: a fabulous coiffure. Click through to see some of the greatest women in history, and their equally fabulous cuts.
Just thinking about the word "peel" sounds painful, but the new Perricone MD Blue Plasma ($95) not only has a cool futuristic name, but also reinvents the facial peel. This silky blue liquid is an acid-free option that you can use daily to reveal glowing skin without the typical drawbacks, such as the redness and sensitivity you'll often find with a standard peel. The magic lies in an enzyme found in salmon eggs, which only works on dead skin cells.
This means you won't get the redness, irritation, and sensitivity that results from sloughing away layers of healthy skin, but you will get the benefits of removing debris from your pores and banishing lackluster skin. Plus, magnolia bark extracts provide anti-inflammatory benefits, while copper helps to repair your skin and gives the formula its striking blue color. This product is great for all skin types — even the most sensitive — and should be applied daily after cleansing and before your moisturizer. Getting enough sloughing action just got a whole lot easier.
Nail art doesn't have to be an intricate affair. You can use a colorful Sharpie marker to doodle on any kind of design you can think of. Just make sure your nails are painted and dry first, and that you avoid getting marker on your skin. I used a metallic gold pen to create a fun chevron print at the base of my nails. First, though, I polished my fingertips with Chanel Le Vernis in Fracas ($27) for a pop of vibrant pink. Once my nails were completely dry, I went back and drew on a small triangle shape with the gold marker. Next, I outlined the triangle shape with a single line to create the chevron detail. If you want to seal in your look with a top coat, wait a few minutes for the marker pigments to set, as they can easily be smudged with the top coat. What design will you draw on?

Sure it's Winter, but lately it's been unbearably cold — freezing in fact. Subzero temperatures are sweeping through the Midwest and down the East Coast. And while curling up with hot cocoa and a heating blanket is ideal, some of us still have to venture out into the elements. Dry skin and static-ridden strands are just a few of the issues caused by the skin-numbing air, but you can kick the arctic weather in the pants with these Winter beauty tips. Thunder, snow, and frigid windchills may ruin your day, but your hair and skin will be safe.
