I love how clean and soft my skin feels after I use the Neutrogena Wave duo. The pads preloaded with face wash make it super easy and great for travel.

The next big wave in cleansing, the Neutrogena WaveTM Duo Power-Cleanser and Foaming Pads, provides skin with gentle or deep pore cleansing at the click of a button. The new Wave Duo is designed with two speeds for ultimate cleansing control and for immediate results that you can see and feel. No matter which level chosen, the battery-operated Wave Duo has been shown to deliver softer skin after just one use.

Get the Look with Johnny Lavoy from MODELINIA.COM

With summer parties in full swing, Modelinia.com (www.modelinia.com) is here to give you tips on the hottest makeup trends. Grey and silver eye makeup work on all skin tones and can be seen on the runways of Marc Jacobs and Matthew Williamson and on celebrities like Kristen Stewart, Hilary Duff and Alicia Keys.

Johnny Lavoy, Maybelline’s resident makeup experts and the host of Modelinia.com’s series Get the Look, gives step by step instructions on how to get this classic look in the below video.

1. Sweep a light silver color across the eyelid. Go right up to the crease on the lid and stop where the crease starts and apply from the inside corner to where the lash line ends. Don’t forget to blend in because you never want to see when one color stops and the other color starts.
2. Create Depth- Move on to the crease color which should be a smokier charcoal grey. Start at the outer corner of the eye and work your way to the center.
3. Make them pop- Choose a lighter color- almost white- to highlight the brow. Brush the color under the brow bed and inner eye.
4. Line your eyes with a dark grey liner along the lash line and smudge it in so that it blends with the rest of the eye color.
5. Finish off with a black mascara and shiny lip.
