VIDEO: Papa's Got a Brand New Blush

The beauty vlogger's "dad/brother/boyfriend does my makeup" isn't exactly today's news, but while we were re-watching the YouTube makeup tutorials of Talia Joy Castellano, the 13-year-old beauty vlogger who died this week, we ran across this gem.

Rest in Peace, Talia Joy Castellano

Heartbroken. That's the only way to describe the feeling when we heard our favorite little beauty vlogger, Talia Joy Castellano, died on Tuesday at the too-too-young age of 13.

The OMG Ice Cream That's GOOD for You

Did Good Housekeeping just invent the perfect dessert? Why, yes, they did. You can jam out this rich, creamy strawberry ice cream with just four ingredients and 10 minutes. The kicker? It's only 70 calories. And it's made with Greek yogurt, which packs protein (up to 18 grams per serving) and a host of other good-for-you benefits, like probiotic cultures for your stomach and fewer carbs than regular yogurt. Feel free to substitute fresh for frozen (it is summer, people), or other fruits, like blueberries, pineapple or mango.)   read more
