Best Movie Makeovers of All Time

Cue the music. Hold your breath. Fight those tears. It's time -- time for the geek or the tough-girl or the under-privileged/secretly gorgeous duckling to swim as a swan. You know it's the best part of the movie. When the scullery maid gets transformed into a princess. When the tomboy FBI agent turns into a beauty pageant queen. When the nerd becomes the most popular girl in school. Despite being grown women, we all love a good movie makeover, don't we?   See Makeovers


5-Minute Makeup Looks for Your Skin Tone

Nine-to-five fact: When you've got deadlines, you'd rather spend time in line at Starbucks than doing your makeup. Any gal on the go knows the importance of that first sip of java, the extra three minutes in the shower, or that morning run that gets your blood pumping before the eight-hour (if you're lucky) grind. So, doing your makeup in the morning shouldn't require a significant time block, agree? Basically, if making up your face has made it on to your iPhone "to do" list, it's time you got the memo that perfectly pulled-together makeup looks can be accomplished in five minutes or less -- so no need to block out the better half of an hour.   See looks

It's 6pm. And you just got a last minute invitation to dinner with friends. There's no question -- you're in. Except for one problem -- you don't have time to run home and touch up your makeup , and you only have lipstick, one eyeliner and powder in your purse. What's a girl to do? Easy -- get creative and make those makeup products multi-task.   See makeup looks
