After we shared our secret beauty must have for girls on the go - we heard you wanted more uses for petroleum jelly! Watch Zelana give 50 quick tips and tricks to try at home or anywhere you need a fast and easy beauty fix.
The glitz of Hollywood glamour is largely show and that's something we all know, but the other day my jaw hit the floor when I caught a segment on television condemning moms without makeup. Of course, kudos were given to a fistful of women for their God given beauty — Heidi Klum and Jennifer Garner — but that was only after actresses like Marcia Cross were condemned for being too pale on the playground. As a fellow mom, I think the forty-something mother of twins looks rather fabulous bare faced! To see what happened, read more
I just did a sneaky thing when nobody was looking, and it's so bonkers and embarrassing that I've never told anybody about this habit. This is a practice I'm not proud of, and it's a little gross, and I'm sure some psychoanalyst would have a field day dissecting it. But somehow I have a feeling that I'm not the only one with a weird grooming or beauty habit. I bet a lot of us do goofy things. (Note Bella trying to justify her weirdness.) So if I tell you my secret, will you share yours?

When you're married (or just in a committed relationship), there are some grooming and beauty rituals you just can't hide from your sweetheart. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since sharing the mundane details of our lives can be healthy. At the same time, though, there's something to be said for keeping the romance alive, right? I always say, "If you wouldn't do it in front of your boss or best friend, don't do it in front of the person you love." Here's my advice on a few beauty secrets you may want to keep to yourself (while keeping yourself as pretty as ever).

Say it isn't so. We've shared some red carpet secrets with you to prevent catastrophes, but it never occurred to me that some people actually prepare and look forward to a nipple slip or a picture of them bending over while going commando. Whoa! Some gals actually enjoy a 'lil scandal. Duh: that's why we're so addicted to PopSugar!
How about a show of hands for all of you that bleach your anus. Yep - it's true. There is a desirable shade of ass. There's even a Salon in Sherman Oaks, CA, dedicated to it.
Esoterica Nighttime Fade Cream, $9.99, is an at home product that you can use to help lighten up your load (ha!). It's made with 2% hydroquinone formula (bleaching agent) that is safe and gentle enough for most people to use in the sensitive areas of their body.
*Note: If you are irritated by this product, discontinue use immediately. Do not use on broken or irritated skin.
Now I've only used cheek tints to give a healthy glow to my face cheeks and lips. It has been brought to my attention that others like to use Benefit's benetint, $28, to tint their breast areola a perfect blush color.
So if you've wondered how celebs, strippers, dancers and porn stars get such succulent nips - now you know!
