Kendall And Kylie Dress In All Black Hippie Chic To Make Coachella Their Own

Kendall. Kylie. Coachella.. Er....Koachella, possibly.

The K-sisters were out + about once again at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California.

The Jenner sisters stood out in a sea of denim with their sexy, all black hippie chic fashion.

A lot of people are going to hate the look, but we thought Kendall + Kylie brought a creative fashion edge to the 3-day, celebrity-packed, music festival.

The close sisters held hands as they made their way through the crowds with a watchful bodyguard in tow.

Kendall grabbed plenty of attention in a black lace, open  maxi cardigan with crop bandeau top + high-waisted black shorts. The aspiring model added studded sandal flats and a bindi decorating her forehead + brows.

Younger sister Kylie, who takes more fashion chances, was photograped in a 2 piece, black lacy bandeau top + shorts + combat boots. She wore elaborate coin + cross necklaces, and her 2-toned hair was in a short ponytail with a black, silk flower headband of sorts on top.

We LOVE Kylie's statement necklace ensemble.
And we also like Kendall's ode to Lorde's wild, hippie hair.
Want hippie hair, too?

Then pick up a bottle of sea salt spray, and get busy!

Lady Gaga Like Possibly Cher And Other Celebs Uses Face Lift Tape For Public Events

At the young age of 28, we are shocked to learn that Lady Gaga practices a beauty trick that older celebs have used for decades in Hollywood.

We're talking about face lift tape.

Does such a quick-fix exist?

Yes, and celebs are always a few steps ahead of the rest of us when it comes to looking forever youthful.

But seriously...Does Gaga need to pull an already young, tight face back even tighter?

Well, she seems to think so, as she revealed to the Brit publication, Daily Mirror:

"When I have my wig cap on and I'm taping my face, it's sort of meditation for me. Every day. It starts the same way, It's like a mantra."

Gaga goes on to add: "I wash my face, pin my hair back and put on a wig cap and I ask, 'How am I going to form my eyes today with this tape? How will I pull my neck back with tape?"

We admire the singing superstar's honesty, but we really don't think she needs to go to that silly extreme, at least not at age 28. She does have a nice complexion to begin with.

Lady Gaga won't be the first or last Hollywood celeb to use face lift tape for a taut skin, quick-fix.

Some say Cher has done it for performances, and they claim here's the proof in these 2-year-old photos:

We see something possibly along the neck and sides of Cher's face, but NOT certain that is facelift tape.

The legendary star turns 68 on May 20th, so props to ya, Cher! We don't care how you're turning back time, so to speak, but you're doing a good job.

Rosehip Oil Capsules: Apply Nightly For Youthful, Healthy Complexion

 Most beauty products promise LOTS of amazing results, and most of us can get pretty frustrated when the product, usually quite expensive, doesn't deliver on all fronts.

That's why, it's often encouraging to learn about natural beauty remedies, and how these organic formulas can work just as effectively as the $100 plus products you've sank your hard-earned dollars into.

So let's take a look at rosehip oil. That one's been around for many generations.

Without getting too scientific, we can tell you that rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes predominantly grown in Chile. Studies have shown that rosehip oil has excellent wound-healing properties and essential  fatty acids that supposedly spur cellular activity + hydration. That means scars improve, skin tone is more balanced, and fine lines + wrinkles smooth out over time.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr LOVES rosehip oil:

"I like to wear rosehip oil at night," the Victoria’s Secret model said. "It’s full of many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level too to rejuvenate the skin. I put that on at night and I wake up glowing."

Hmmm. Does that mean we, too, can wake up to supermodel skin?

Well, who knows?

Rosehip oil cannot harm your complexion. But if you have acne at the moment, don't apply the oil until your break-outs have disappeared. Very oily skin and rosehip oil don't always work well together.

Waleda features organic rosehip oil packed into convenient, tiny capsule form: ($40, 30 capsules).

Duchess Of Cambridge Kate Wows New Zealand With 1970's High Ponytail Glamour

Duchess of Cambridge Kate looked tres chic once again, as she wowed the Blenheim, New Zealand crowd that had gathered to greet her and Duke of Cambridge William at a wreath-laying ceremony.

Kate wore a classic, robin's egg blue belted Alexander McQueen coat.

Her makeup was soft + warm with a rosy lip and cheek, and mascara with a light blue/gray eye shadow.

But let's talk about Kate's crowning glory! She has the most amazing, healthy, thick hair. And we strongly believe that she is extensions-free.
We LOVED the retro style--- a 1970's high ponytail. It's a glam, polished look with hair swept back in a lopped ponytail. Kate's personal hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker fashioned the style.
Kate looked every bit the duchess.

Gotta love the 1970's high ponytail. This reminds us so much of beautiful Lynda Carter who wore the high ponytail on her "Wonder Woman" television series. It's NOT a severe ponytail, but one that is high + a bit poofy in back.

Would you wear the 1970's high ponytail?

If your hair is long + straight, you're good to go! You CAN copy this classic look.

Olivia Munn Welcomes The Beauty Of Spring With Bold Fuchsia Lips

Most people would agree that actress Olivia Munn is stunning.

And the dark-haired beauty always seems to get her makeup right, year after year.

She obviously knows what makes her attractiveness pop, and the color fuchsia is one of those makeup-dos. Plus fuchsia welcomes the warmth + brightness of Spring.

Fuchsia lips are not easy to pull off unless you follow a couple of cosmetics rules:

1.  Don't go with a heavy eye. Muted shadows like taupe and bone are neutrals that pair nicely with bold fuchsia lipstick.

2. Don't over-do the blush. Just a pretty hint in sheer peach will blend in perfectly with the bright lip shade.

Of course, it doesn't hurt to have Olivia Munn's exquisite bone structure.

Here's a lovely, inexpensive fuchsia lipstick to copy Olivia's look:

SUGAR Cherry Tinted Lip Treatment By Fresh: Great For Both Lips + Cheeks!

We LOVE when a beauty product becomes a 2-for or two-for one.

In other words, let's say you forgot to pack your blush and need a serious touch-up. Would you then apply your lipstick as a blush.....and vice versa?

We have. And it won't be the last time we do it.

And now here's another great 2-for---from lips to blush and back again:

SUGAR Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15 by Fresh ($22.50, at Sephora).

No, it's NOT a bold red lip. This amazing SUGAR lip balm really caresses your lips with moisturizing ingredients for up to 6 hours. Plus, it leaves behind a sheer, subtle red tint. Flattering to skin tone

And, you can caress your cheeks, with it, too, because SUGAR lip treatment can provide a pretty, soft warmth to the apples of your cheeks. Good news it's NOT sticky---key to also using it on the cheeks.

So, you are using the beauty product in 2 budget-saving ways.

And SUGAR lip treatment gets high marks by consumers. This way you know it's all good.

Cindy Crawford Practices What She Preaches: Ballet Flats To Get Around

Four years ago, the supermodel herself Cindy Crawford, gave InStyle magazine fans her personal 60 seconds of style video. In it she talks about one of her favorite shoe styles---the classic ballet flat.

The stylish mom-of-two explains the fashion benefits of ballet flats:

Stylish. Comfortable.  Great for traveling. And these classic shoes go with everything, Cindy says.

We took it as sound style advice, but we never really believed that the iconic model ever wore them herself.

But, boy, were we wrong!

Almost four years following her 60 seconds of style video, and she's STILL in ballet flats often.

Take a look at Cindy Crawford getting around in ballet flats, and looking elegant + chic. One of Cindy's go-to brands:

Sue London Ballet Flats. The price might be considered a bit steep at more than $300 per pair.

But you can copy the Cindy Crawford classic ballet flat at much cheaper amounts if you look around.

Of course, Cindy Crawford's other handsome accessory is husband Randy Gerber.

Great, simple fashion tip from Cindy!
