Holidays' Worst Food Bombs -- and How to Defuse Them

Korean Diet Secrets for Youthful, Wrinkle-free Skin

We talk a lot about Korean skin care. We look to them for the latest and greatest in all things beauty -- from the newest rendition of BB cream to the latest way to hydrate skin. But after pilfering products from their medicine cabinets, we might want to raid their refrigerators, too.

But since putting on makeup is sort of the grown-up version of finger-painting, it's bound to get a little messy at times. We've dealt with pretty much every makeup disaster you can think of -- the lipstick tube that came uncapped in a pocket, the Chanel powder that burst in the Chanel purse (oh, the irony), the nail polish bottle that fell on to the carpet-- you get the picture. Since there's no way we're giving up our makeup any time soon (or, like, ever), we got the dirt from cleaning experts and makeup artists on how to get even the toughest makeup stains out of everything.   read more
