Can a 3D printer revolutionize the cosmetics industry?


Have you all heard about the Harvard Business School grad everyone’s talking about today?

Meet Grace Choi. The college grad debuted a 3D printer that prints makeup in ANY COLOR you could possibly want.

SERIOUSLY.

A lot has changed about makeup since we were little girls. Back then, if we wanted to wear it, we’d have to sneak a little bit of lipstick when no one was looking or save up our allowance to buy a mascara. But now, everything is about to get way easier … and digital.

Grace Choi, a Harvard Business School grad (and our new favorite person on earth) debuted her new 3-D printer that not only PRINTS MAKEUP but does it in any color you could possibly want. Simply by grabbing the color code from a photo and hooking the small device up to your computer, you have an endless supply of lipsticks and eyeshadows in any shade.

Choi demonstrated how the printer works at a tech conference, and we have to admit, we’re pretty excited to get our hands on one. She plans on selling them for $300 each, but when you think about all the $10 eyeshadows you’ve purchased over the years, and the fact that you may never need to visit a Sephora again … it’s a not such a huge price to pay.

Christy Turlington poses with her husband Ed Burns in new Calvin Klein campaign!

o-CHRISTY-AND-ED-570

Well they make one stunning couple, don’t they?

Christy Turlington has modeled for Calvin Klein since 1995 when she appeared in their ‘Eternity’ campaign. She’s now back as the face of the iconic fragrance, and her husband, Ed Burns, is making his debut in the ads as well!

If at all possible, the photos released Friday are even better than the ones from back in the day. Perhaps that’s because, as the supermodel told Women’s Wear Daily, she didn’t have to fake it when it came to being intimate with her co-star:

Usually you pretend to be intimate on these types of campaigns, and when they go to change a lens or the roll of film is complete, you’re like, “So, how about those Mets?” It’s just awkward.

Well, if she ever did feel awkward in past campaigns, we certainly couldn’t tell. However, there is something really beautiful about seeing a couple pose together, especially for a brand that Turlington Burns has been connected to for so long.

They look too hot! I love that they’re still together!

Secret has you covered this summer!

mhu-reviews-4141440

Here in Oregon we don’t get much heat. We get some serious heat for a couple weeks a year, and I’ll TAKE IT. I love it! When you live in a state where it’s grey 80% of the time (don’t quote me on that) we’ll take sun and heat in any form we can get!

One thing I don’t want to have to worry about is sweat. I want to make SURE my deodorants are working, and it’s a brand I trust. I don’t go crazy and try new brands very often, because what if they DON’T work? I’ve been using Secret deodorant exclusively for about 20 years – well – it feels like 20 years. They recently sent me some new products to try – and I’m relieved to know I’m COVERED this summer!

First of all – try Secret’s 48 Hour Odor ProtectionDestinations Collection! Get 48 hours of fresh floral scent protection with Secret’s NEW Destinations Collection! Try Paris, Hawaii and Brazil!

Or – try Secret’s NEW Clincial Strength Deodorant in Invisible Solid! A refreshingly light scent with clinical strength protection that keeps up with you all day long! Now available in 2 forms: Invisible solid and Clear gel!

I know what I like – and I like and trust Secret!

Make Her Up is doing it too!

So I decided I was #downfor30! I challenged myself to take my hair OUT OF THAT hair tie, and style it! I like to call this my “Summer’s THIIIIIS Close” hairdo.

I’m going to walk you through how I achieved this look – using ONLY Frizz Ease products!

See this (below)? This is me on an everyday basis. C’mon girlfriend – let that hair down!

IMG_1812

I’m going to be honest. At this point I didn’t even have makeup on. So I stopped everything – let my hair down – and put makeup on!

Step 1: Wash hair.

IMG_1818

Step 2: I applied 10 pumps or so of Frizz Ease’s Go Curler to my damp hair and then blow dried my hair.  (See above)

  • Activated with the heat from your curling iron or hot rollers this breakthrough formula creates your best salon-smooth curls that last for up to 48 hours.
  • Defines and tightens curls for bouncy, salon-smooth style with a touchable hold.
  • Curls can be touched up the next day to reactivate bouncy style

Here are the only two products I used on my hair! Frizz Ease’s Go Curler – and Frizz Ease’s Expert Finish Polishing Serum!

Step 3: Pick your favorite hot curlers. I separated my hair into two sections – top & bottom. I applied the hot curlers to the bottom hair first, and then finished with the top.

Step 4: Time to let those curlers set! I grabbed myself a nice cooler, and went and sat in the backyard for a few minutes. It was a rare – beautiful afternoon in Oregon, so I thought I’d enjoy the nice weather!

Step 5: Take those curlers out – and see what you’ve got! I was SHOCKED with how well the curls set. It had to have been the Go Curler I used on my hair before I dried it. The curls looked amazing!

IMG_1817IMG_1816

Step 6: I squirted a little bit of Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum into my hand, and ran it through my completed hair to get rid of any flyaways I had! The end look was absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely use these two products again when curling my hair!

Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum: Helps Stop Styling Damage

  • Controls Flyaways
