Megan Fox continuously looks like she just wandered out of a lazily delicious scene in a Fellini movie lately, and while Transformers may not exactly be a work of the Italian master, her hair is certainly a masterpiece on its own merit. The stylist who created the look, Renato Campora, says Megan's a natural beauty, so he worked with her own texture and kept her hair down. He did, however, add a little twist of his own. "The Teen Choice Awards is always a fun event," he says. "I wanted to create a young, tousled, sexy and soft look to match.” For step-by-step directions on how Renato gave Megan these gorgeous pre-Raphaelite curls, read more

OK, so not everyone can (or will want to) pull off this look. The cotton-candy colors might not be for, say, someone who works in corporate law — but a streak or two of color could liven up your locks for a night out with the girls. If you don't want to make a permanent commitment à la Gaga, buy inexpensive clip-in blond extensions, then dye them with Manic Panic in Mystic Heather and Cotton Candy Pink. In they go for a party, and out they come when you want a more subdued hair color. For what it's worth. I recommend wearing pants when leaving the house, too. But maybe I'm a prude like that.
Whether it was a subtle shimmer like Emma Roberts's, a bold, rich shade like Jordana Brewster's, or a mellow yellow version à la Leighton Meester, we saw lots of gilded beauties on the runway at last night's Teen Choice Awards.
Notice how each of the women kept it simple with varying shades of nude and pink on the cheeks and lips. What do you think of these golden girls? Do you like bold golds in your everyday looks, or do you prefer to save the precious metals for special events?
Picnik is a cool program for editing and aggregating photos online, especially if you don't have a copy of Photoshop handy. But recently, they introduced a lady-geared suite of features called Touch Up that has options like Sunless Tan, Highlights, Teeth Whitener, Blemish Fix, and my least favorite, Insta-Thin. (Because, you know, we girls always want to be thin.)
I decided to try it because I find the whole photo-editing thing dubious; I understand that this stuff's an accepted part of our culture, but I'm just saying that I don't think it's so great for our psyches to worry about "perfection." To find out what my experience was like, just read more
These "eau de earrings" truly make it possible for you to find another body part for which to wear your favorite scent. Each pack contains a set of sterling silver earrings and 30 changeable, colorful scent-holding flowers. Would you wear them?
Of all the teen-mag advice I read back in the day, one bit stands out as an unwavering truth: there's no magic pill to change the size of your bustline. But don't tell that to the makers of these items. These odd snacks, creams, and drinks promise to turn tangerines to cantaloupes, molehills into mountains, cupcakes into, uh, larger cakes. Do they work? I wouldn't hold my breast. Er, breath. But for a laugh, yes, they certainly work.
Have you ever had a similar experience? Perhaps your pomade is perfect, but the aroma leaves much to be desired, or it's that your favorite shampoo gives you amazing body, along with a little too much floral notes for your liking. Would you keep using a product that gives astonishing results, even though the scent is stinky?
My doctor told me that there could be some minor irritation, but I find myself repeatedly using Visine, and my contact lenses certainly aren't helping things. I was worried about it, so I stopped in at the doc's to make sure I hadn't contracted conjunctivitis or something similarly unpleasant, and he recommended I flush my eyes with saline in the morning before I put in my lenses. That way, any Latisse still on my lashes doesn't get into my eyes and trapped under my contacts. It's so common-sense that I'm a tad embarrassed it never occurred to me. Let's just hope it actually works.
