I’ve featured some cool online subscription clubs in a previous TODAY show appearance, and they continue to be a big trend. A new one called From The Lab sends you beauty products from different brands up to 18 months before they’re sold in stores. If you’d like the chance to win one of their beauty boxes, check out the giveaway below.
As the Fall 2013 fashion shows have wrapped up, we are beginning to unearth our warm weather wardrobes. This season up your beauty game with seductive eyes, bold lips and funky hair.
EYES: smoldering shadow and liner
Forget low key eye makeup and go for the glam, courtesy of Pat McGrath and the Gucci runway. Trace outer rims with dark brown liner and apply matching shadow on the lids. For a little more dimension add a shimmery cream highlighter to the inner corner and brow bone. Bring it home with sky high lashes! Read More
Sharing a sweatshirt or oversized t-shirt with your boyfriend or hubby is fun and all, but leggings? Ladies, hold onto your favorite pants substitute because meggings (leggings for men) are hitting the streets and runways as one of the biggest new trends of the season. Squeezed into by celebrities like Justin Bieber, Russell Brand, and Lenny Kravitz, meggings appear to be making their mark on the Hollywood set. But what about real guys giving tight pants a try?
Apparently labels like Urban Outfitters and American Apparel think they should, because both stores are offering the look this season. And these bottoms aren’t reserved just for adult men. Check out this version created for baby boys by designer Little Titans. I have to say, these little ones do look adorable in their leg-wear! Only time will tell whether this fashion statement is either a ‘do’ or a major ‘don’t’ but personally, unless you’re taking the stage as a ballet dancer, acting in a Shakespearian play, or under two years old, just say no to tights, guys.
We’ve answered the question before, “Are these products too good to be true?” Now it begs to be asked again with Wrangler’s new ‘Spa Jean,’ which claims to fight cellulite!
The denim brand’s new Spa line is designed with moisturizing ingredients like Olive Extract and Aloe Vera. Included in the collection is the much talked about Smooth Leg Jean that claims to fight cellulite with “caffeine, retinol and algae” packed right into the denim itself! This style was “clinically tested by the Institut Adriant in France, where after four weeks of wearing the jeans for eight hours a day, five days a week over six weeks, 69 per cent of the panel claimed that the appearance of their thighs had improved.” At $136 a pair, the style will be available on ASOS.com starting January 28. Truth be told, even if some cellulite lingers after wearing these jeans, if a little added moisturizer can make wiggling into my favorite pair of denim that much easier, I am not complaining.
I dropped by the studio (which is surprisingly small!) the night before to deliver my props.
Getting all the beauty products in order, thanks to the wonderful prop stylist.
I had so much fun dancing on the plaza while Flo Rida performed. Definitely knocked out any jitters.
Moments before the live tease that shows viewers my segment is coming up next.
60 seconds until I go live! I always thought there would be tons of people in the studio. Actually, it was very low key. Just me, Tamron and a couple of camera guys. Amazing how quickly 4 minutes and 30 seconds goes by when you're having fun.
Did you like the segment? Is there a beauty or style segment you’d like to see on TV? I wanna know…it could end up being the topic of my next segment.
The high-low skirt is a cross between a maxi and a mini: short in the front, long in the back. The lengths and shapes differ from one skirt to the next, but one thing is for certain: they’re darn flattering. The high-low cut creates a lengthening effect that gives even the shortest girls legs for days. The trend can be styled every which way, depends on your own personal taste, and there are tons of cute options for less than $100. From solids to prints, sheer to silky, there’s a skirt for everyone in this gallery. Take a looksie!
Anthropologie, $49.95, anthropologie.com (I personally own this skirt. It's comfy, flattering, and goes with everything. I'll be living in it this summer).
