The classic YSL TOUCHE ECLAT is so popular that they are celebrating their twenty year anniversary.

It's also great for touching up under the eyes after your makeup is finished without caking. It comes in 12 different shades so you are sure to find the perfect shade for any complexion.

Katharine Mcphee, one of the stars of the hit television show SMASH, walked through Los Angeles International Airport almost unrecognized.
The actress and "American Idol" alum has cut her normally long, chestnut brown hair into a tousled, chin length bob. Color wise Katharine is featuring the new ombre look, with her usual dark brown shade at the roots, going into a lighter warm auburn color. In my opinion she looks smashing, even with the geek chic glasses.
Personally I feel she was at the peak of her beauty just after A.I. I think she may have decided to lose weight before starting her new series, and now looks just a little too thin. I prefer her looking a little more voluptuous, as she was in the top photo. But what do I know, I'm just a beauty expert.
