Ciara placed this light-reflecting shade in the inner corners of her eyes, complementing it with a contrasting matte brown shadow, bronzed cheeks, and glossy lips. Pale blues can be worn on all skin tones and eye colors, it's just about what you pair them with that makes a difference. For tips on how you can make this look your own, just keep reading.
She tells WWD:
"It's always not signature enough. I go back and say things like, ‘Can we push the sandalwood a little bit more, can we make a tiny bit more sexy?’ To translate that into actual chemistry is a difficult thing. Then they go back and say, ‘What does she mean by sexy?’ And I’m like, ‘You know if you [take] that little piece that smells a little bit like wood but has a little bit of musk? But I just want you to add a little bit of sweetness. Can you do that for me?’ And then I think we are in the right direction. And then they come with one or two variations and I say, ‘No, that’s not it.’ It’s a long process."
Love and Glamour will debut at Macy's in October. As for Halle? To see her revealing ad campaign, just keep reading.
will be joining forces with sexy-dress brand Hervé Léger. Come Fall, Avon will launch Hervé Léger Femme ($34), a woody floral scent with notes of pink grapefruit, magnolia flower, orange flower with honeywood, cypress wood, vanilla, and warm benzoin tears.
Also joining the line will be a men's scent, Hervé Léger Homme ($30), a spicy wood fragrance with notes of ginger, yuzu, smoldering woody notes, and amber. (Not sure why the men's scent is a few dollars cheaper than the women's.) The outer faux-wrapped packaging screams sensuality, an obvious nod to the clothing brand's image. "The bottles were designed to capture the iconic shape of the quintessential Hervé Léger dress, echoing the 'bandage' effect that makes the designs so distinctive," chief designer Max Azria told WWD.
In terms of fragrance, Avon has really been going for it as of late, with collaborations with high-end designers like Emanuel Ungaro, Christian Lacroix, and Cynthia Rowley. Take that, coupled with the brand's celebrity scent partnership with the likes of Zoe Saldana, Patrick Dempsey, Fergie, Reese Witherspoon, and Courteney Cox, and Avon's really building quite the stylish reputation for itself. What do you think of Avon's latest pairing? Will you give the scents a whiff, or are you going to pass?
While some beauty rules are meant to live by, like ones that rule out too-thick foundation and stiff helmet hair, some were just made to be broken (or bent, at least!). Here are 5 beauty rules that can be ruled out, and how to break them effectively:
- Smoky eyes are only for a night out: The daytime smoky eye is going to be big for summer when paired with bronzed skin and pale lip. Opt for lighter colors than usual — bronzes and mid-tone gray, for a softer light smoky [eye] for daytime. For staying power, smudge an eye kohl on the lash line and layer with a matching shadow.
- Allow a product at least six weeks before giving up on it: If the product is causing redness, bumps, stinging, or swelling: toss it! You know what your skin can handle, so why be miserable and wait it out?
- Dark lips are only for winter: Berry and brick red lips aren’t just for the winter anymore. Just ask Rachel Bilson, who was seen recently at a Phillip Lim dinner rocking a dark lip. Move over hot pinks and bright corals, dark vampy colors are staying for summer.
- Save the false lashes for a special occasion: False lashes can be a great way to spruce up any look, whether you have sparse lashes or just want to add some drama. To avoid looking too over-the-top try individual lashes placed strategically on the lash line to add just a bit of oomph.
- Get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks to keep split ends away: I got the A-OK from my wonderful stylist before adding this one. Truth is, not everyone needs that trim every 6-8 weeks. If you’re trying to grow your hair out longer, or have untreated hair, it's possible to go 10-12 weeks between trims. Just keep an eye out for split ends, which mean you're due for an appointment.
"Initially, I was drawn to Mark because of the products," she told WWD. "But what really sealed the deal was its empowering message to young women, which is something I relate to." Expect Ashley to appear in ads (shot by famed fashion photog Patrick Demarchelier) and Mark's "magalog" this autumn. Do you think this partnership is a match that sparkles?
The ultrafragrant oil tiare produces is believed to help quell migraines, heal wounds, and add luster to hair. Find the exotic, aromatic note in: Vera Wang's Princess ($57), Lavanila's Vanilla Coconut ($18—$58), and Monoi Tiare Coconut Oil ($6).

Ah, college — those sweet, sweet days of living under a pile of dubiously "clean" clothing and letting stuff stay in the fridge until it deliquesced. With those fond educational memories in mind, if you've got an endearingly messy high schooler on your graduation gift list this year, may we suggest Stinky Dorm ($34), a kit full of all-natural odor neutralizers? It comes with two jars that suck stench from the air, as well as a spot spray for any particularly gross patches a bright young scholar might encounter.
It may be less exciting than an iPod Shuffle, but it'll probably wind up being a whole lot more useful. By the end of first semester, most students are grateful for a care package full of new socks and Febreze, and there's no doubt your gift will go to good use and be well appreciated. Plus, it's all natural, so even the greenest freshman will be happy to use it to get the funk out.
