Avon calling Miranda KerrPatti Pietschmann on the spot
Credit celebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey  for enhancing already beautiful  Meranda Kerr's look for last night's Vanity Fair After Party. Quite the look. Want to know  how to do it yourself?

Priyanka stars in Lion which nominated  for Best Picture Patti Pietschmann reporting

Priyanka has gorgeous dark eyes; they’re so animated and can look extra dramatic with some colors and even when paired with a pop of color on the lips, too.

Think of the sun as 'beauty and the beast'.  While a tan makes everyone look more attractive and healthy, getting one by sitting in the sun is quite beastly and harmful. Not only does overexposure to rays speed up the aging of skin  (translated sun spots, wrinkles and lines) it has been known to cause skin cancer (been there done that and have scars to prove it).

The company sent me two products to try:
