Mama Mio is proud to support the fight against breast cancer, but beyond the donations they make to their charity partner, Look Good… Feel Better®, they want to encourage women to become more aware of their own boobs. As with their full size Boob Tube Bust & Neck Firming Creams, these 10-day samples will come with a leaflet that contains the American Cancer Society’s instructions on how to perform a Breast Self-Exam (BSE). “Doing BSE regularly is one way for women to know how their breasts normally look and feel and to notice any changes.”, the American Cancer Society website, last reviewed/revised 10/04/11.

10-Day Tryout Boob Tubes are available through We would love for you to share this link with your readers for this great cause.

MUD’s Halloween Makeup Tips – Queen Ravenna!

Ahh, Halloween…a modern-day excuse to dress like your favorite alter ego. Compliment your doppelgänger this season with standout make-up looks that are fabulously monstrous, dramatic and scary…in a good way.

Although vampires and zombies are always trending, impersonate some fresh characters inspired from this year’s hottest movies. Sean Conklin, lead make-up artist at Make-up Designory (MUD) provides expert tips that’ll leave you looking like a striking queen not a repulsive maiden.

Queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman

The fairest one of all! Recreate her enchanted look here with these easy steps:

Face: For longer-lasting make-up, evenly apply MUD’s Face Primer with a sponge or Brush 940. Next, sweep the HD Air Foundation on the entire face with a sponge or Brush 940 for an ageless appearance. To reduce the reflection on the skin, lightly dust the Loose Powder with the 510 Fan Brush.

Eyes: Queen Ravenna’s eye treatment is soft and subtle. To achieve a rich, long-lasting brow suitable for a queen, transfer the Taupe Eye Pencil onto Brush 210. Follow the natural direction of the hair to fill in the brow. To recreate the soft smoky eye, use the Taupe Eye Color with Brush 810 to completely fill in the top lid and on the outer corner of the lower lash line. Blend the hard edge with Brush 800 and drag the color outward in a wing like upward fashion. Be sure not to droop the outer corner down. Blend the lower lash line with Brush 800 to finish the smoky look. For definition, follow the upper lash line with the Black Cake Liner and Brush 100. Finish with a couple coats of Volumizing Mascara.

Cheeks: Use the Soft Peach Cheek Color to give the illusion of a softer appearance and an overall glow. With Brush 510, apply from the hairline and dust a light application downward to magically soften the shape. Next, lightly dust on the apples of the cheeks.

Lips: To complete the soft, subtle, bewitching recreation of Queen Ravenna, conjure a mixture of Rose Clay and Just Peachy Lipstick. Apply to the lips with Brush 310 and you’ll be appointed fairest one of all.

Instyle: You Can Do Red Lips!

You Can Do: Red Lips
Like the perfect leopard-print stiletto, an amazing red lipstick can transform even the most basic black dress into something startlingly chic. Case in point: Despite some stiff competition from her ambitious right leg, Angelina Jolie’s red lips won us over at the Oscars.

The Basic Tips
• Ditch the chapped lips! For a pitch-perfect crimson like Rihanna’s, exfoliate lips with a wet washcloth, followed by a dab of lip balm.
• Fill in with a liner that matches the natural color of your lips—not the lipstick.
• Apply color with a tiny brush, starting at the center of your mouth and blending outward.

The Basic Products
• Available in four versatile shades, The Nude Liner by Smashbox ($17 each; is easy to blend, and lasts for hours.
• A blue-based crimson like MAC’s Red ($15; brightens up your smile, and neutralizes any discoloration on your teeth with its cool undertones.
• MAC’s 318 Retractable Lip Brush ($23; creates a seamless finish, and thanks to its compact size, is perfect for touch-ups on the go.

I’m scared it will look too harsh.
If a full-on red is too much commitment for you, try out a lip stain instead like YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Orange de Chine ($32; Just dab a bit of it on the inside center of your lips, then smack them together. The effect is subtle, rosy, and youthful—like you’ve just finished a cherry Popsicle.

What eye makeup do I pair with it?
Although a statement lip works best with minimal eye makeup, that doesn’t mean you have to swear off shadows altogether. Unless you want to channel an ’80s revival, steer clear of bright shades, and stick to sheer neutrals
