Demi Lovato Pretty In Blush-Tone Pink At VMAs 2015

Demi Lovato looked gorgeous at last night's VMA Awards 2015.

We liked her slicked back dark hair, bold brows, glam cat-eye + blush-tone lips.

Demi usually likes to amp up her pout with vivid  reds or fuchsias, but we like this softer look on the singer.

So pretty! She GLOWS......

Pink blush-tone makeup can make every woman look healthy, soft +  warm.

And we loved her pink intricate-web style miniGreat illusion dress with nude heels.

Demi looks SEXY, but not over-the-top. Sophisticated and modern.

To COPY Demi's blush-tone pink lips, try NARS Sheer Lipstick in CRUISING ($27).

Pasties.....Nipples....Nipple Fashion.

Yes, it IS a hot trend. And it doesn't appear to be heading for cover, so to speak.

The Go Topless protests in New York City are fueling the boob/nipple obsession, too, we imagine.

Take a look. All 3 ladies put on pasties last evening----Miley, and then Ali on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Rita performing in L.A..

Celebs Love it: Alkaline Water Claims To Smooth Away Wrinkles + Zits

Here we go.....If celebs + big stars are doing it, then it MUST really work.

We often think that famous people have access to the BEST in beauty, skin care, fashion, diet, etc.

Yes and no.

Some things are truly effective and others are not. And sometimes, the cost of a product has ZERO to do with its efficacy, which brings us to the new fad---alkaline water.

Oh, yeah....Lots of celebs + famous athletes are drinking up!

We are intrigued by women alkaline water users claiming the special H2O s-m-o-o-t-h-s away wrinkles + acne.

Say what?!

Sounds fantastic!

We have NOT tried alkaline water, but hey, it couldn't hurt to drink it or 'wear it.'

Let's take a further look:

Alkaline water is IONIZED water. It contains a higher pH level than tap water.

If we believe the hype, this H2O can do these things:

There are claims that APPLYING alkaline water to your face, neck + body parts is effective,  as it TIGHTENS skin, helping to hydrate, too, and removes wrinkles + acne.

This ionized water  is  also great for  scalp + hair to apply to, Makes it super healthy.

And drinking it, promotes HEALTHY cells from within.

Do some homework and read up on alkaline water. If you are unsure about drinking it, at least applying it sounds great for the firming properties.

Kylie Looks 'Kute' In Clip-In Bangs: Very Cleopatra

Want bangs but NOT the hassle for frequent trims or a quick grow-out if you get bored with your fringe?

Then do what stylish Kylie Jenner did recently----add some exotic black bangs for a hot new look.

We LOVE the gorgeous cat-eye with super thick faux lashes + liner in Kylie's Instagram pic. So GLAM!

Some of you have great luck with wearing clip-in bangs. But a lot of you cannot make the fringe sit right.

You can trim these faux bangs to make them perfect for you, but it's BEST if you have a stylist adjust the clip-ins before you CUT off too much length.

We found a bunch of clip-in bangs here at

Check this out:

We miss our bangs.

We like these. If we could fit them like the model in the photo, we would try them, too.

Very tempting.

So.....Do any of you wear clip-in bangs?

Modern Family's Ariel Winter All Smiles At Disney Following Recent Breast Reduction

Good for you, Ariel Winter!

Her lovely smile tells it all, as the 17-year-old star added her presence to the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim on Saturday.

Ariel was there in a really cute green romper to promote her animated TV series Sofia The First, in which she voices the main character. Sounds great!


What's even more special was the happy glow radiating from her following breast reduction surgery last June. Ariel is now a 34 D; before she was a natural 32 F.

The pretty actress tells Glamour magazine that she not only endured awful back + neck pain, but emotional digs, too, from mean people on social media:

"I’d have to wear the dress that was super tight and form-fitted everywhere because if I didn’t, it didn’t look good. I didn’t really have an option other than to wear fitted clothes. Everyone would [say], 'Why is she dressing so mature? That’s so inappropriate for her age!'"

"It’s hard when you’re a teenage girl and you already have a lot of ridicule and then you pile on more, and it’s kind of…it just gets too much."

So, what is involved with breast reduction surgery?

Excess fat, skin + tissue are removed from the breasts; then the areolas + nipples are adjusted to a higher position.

The surgery is considered SAFE and performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Meantime, Ariel is pleased her smaller new breasts:

"It’s something that I did to better my life and better my health and I think that that can benefit a lot of young girls. I have felt more happy with myself than I ever have."

Beautiful Benefits Of Applying Topical Tretinoin, Otherwise Known As Retin A

Wrinkles, age spots, dull complexion, large pores, uneven skin tone, and on and on.

Most of us deal with these skin conditions on a daily basis, and as we approach our 40s and beyond, these imperfections can progress, making us appear a lot older than we are and feel.

Let's be blunt, because tons of big name beauty companies sell us plenty of over-the-counter products designed to make wrinkles and such DISAPPEAR and to allow the skin to bounce back like a 20-year-old's.
Okay...let's STOP the b.s. and look at the facts.

Scientists and skin care experts would agree that prescription Retin A is about as good as it gets when it comes to finding the BEST anti-aging product out there.

But even Retin A CANNOT destroy wrinkles permanently.

Retin A CAN dramatically REDUCE wrinkle depth and fade its harshness AFTER a number of years. Plus---It CAN prevent new wrinkles from forming.

And to boot, the only FDA-approved topical treatment for wrinkles is tretinoin, known commercially as Retin A.

If you think Retin A is like a face lift in a bottle, well, that's expecting a fairy tale to come true.

BUT....applying Retin A to your face + neck nightly can improve several areas of concern:

1. Sun damage.
2. Large pores.
3. Too oily complexion.
4. Dull skin appearance.
5. Bad acne.
6. Wrinkle + fine line depth.
7. Uneven tone + texture.
8. Early form of skin cancer.

To see if prescription Retin A is right you, learn more here at WebMD.

Ciara Shows Off Perfectly Toned Arms: Boxing Work-Outs Key

WOW. Just wow!

We have gone on + on before about singer Ciara's gorgeous, perfectly-toned arms.

And then we saw photos again, and well, we had to read up on how the superstar maintains that SEXY body, especially those KILLER arms!

Ciara's arms are slender, but more importantly--- hers are lean + muscular with GREAT definition.

So, how do you get Ciara's buff biceps + triceps? We like to use small dumbbells. But Ciara's secret is in the boxing ring.

She tells Shape Mag's September issue this when working out with celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson:

".....Hour-long plyometric cardio circuit using boxing elements," which Ciara loves because ..."you're getting three-in-one training: It's hitting your muscles; it's a cardiovascular workout; and it's a mental exercise..."

..."You have to be superfocused when you're boxing. After I've done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world."

Women On Twitter Hating Alleged Hair Extensions Of Fox's Megyn Kelly: Meow!

Wow. What a GOP debate in prime time that was on Thursday!

Folks are still buzzing about it, and the fireworks between debate moderator, Fox's own Megyn Kelly + presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Let's talk blonde HAIR....and we don't mean Mr. Trump's flaxen coif.

Oh, no.....Ladies everywhere on social media are STILL discussing anchor Megyn Kelly's alleged hair extensions.

We repeat---ALLEGED.

Most TV viewers are used to seeing the pretty news anchor with a sensible wavy bob.

But lately, the popular news woman has been wearing her locks in long cascades, looking MORE like a Khloe Kardashian hair do than a classic, not-as-sexy bob.

Here's Megyn at Thursday's lively debate.

But women started tearing Megyn down, criticizing the look, especially on Twitter:

only reason woman would wear LONG hair extensions n fake lady bug brigette bardot eyelashes is 2 get her way using sexuality.

I agree with you about I will not watch her MSN show anymore! And yes her hair extensions look so cheap!

Just unfollowed you! Used to love your wit & intelligence! Hair extensions & too tight clothes causing brain damage!

 Aug 6
This was one long commercial for the Jessica Simpson hair extensions Megyn Kelly is rocking.

And there you have it....The nasty comments go on + on regarding Fox news' Megyn Kelly.

What do you think? We all know that Fox News LOVES its blonde anchor ladies. So.......

Extensions.....bad extensions...or looking good, Megyn?

Megyn Kelly does NOT mention her alleged hair extensions here at her Twitter page.
