Admit it. You’ve had those makeup brushes for waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. You know you’re supposed to clean them, you just don’t. Who has time for that?? If I even put makeup on, I’m doing good.

Makeup brushes are probably THE LAST thing I buy. If I find one I like…. I keep it. Forever. In fact, I might have some still from the 90′s. Okay, I admit…. that’s pretty bad. But hey – they’re EXPENSIVE! I’ve looked in the past, but I don’t ever really want to spend money on brushes!

Well, Pixi sent me their full line of brushes – and I am happy to announce that I’m finally out with the old – and in with the new!

Is this what I’ve been missing all these years? These brushes are fabulous! They are so soft, and work amazingly! They apply everything from liner to blush with little effort! There’s a brush for everything! I am obsessed with the eye brushes. There’s a brush for liner, a brush for shadow, a brush for the crease, a brush for your brows!

The best part is – you can afford them! Check out all of these fabulous brushes here!

article-2611194-1D49EE6400000578-167_634x844

Last year we saw Lupita Nyong’o career explode with her appearance in her first feature film, ’12 Years a Slave.’ This year, the actress was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in the role.

The 31-year-old actress has just been named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2014!

Speaking to the magazine about her incredible accolade, the actress explained when she grew up she thought the definition of beauty was ‘light skin and flowing, straight hair’.

But she’s proud of her achievement, adding: [My mother] always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point.’

She said she was excited for the news to be announced, not just for her benefit, but for all the young girls in the world: ‘All the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen.’

The Oscar winner is also the face of Lancôme Paris, and has a busy time ahead as she’s rumoured to be taking a role in thriller Who Shot The Sherriff.

The beauty also confessed to being a tom boy at a young age.

‘I would never look in the mirror, never, ever,’ she said. ‘One day my mother actually dragged me and made me look at myself and said, “Look, you are ashy! You need some lotion!”‘

Turns out the Yale graduate did have some beauty issues. ‘I had very patchy, rashy skin, mainly on my face,’ she said. ‘My mother found some remedy in Madagascar, like herbs in a vial. Oh, it smelled terrible – but it worked.’

Nyong’o also admitted to experimenting with her hair many times, even going bald once. ‘It was very strange and very cold,’ she commented. ‘I was just curious. It was scary, but I like to dare myself.’

Here’s People’s Top 10!

1. Lupita Nyong’o
2. Keri Russell
3. Jenna Dewan-Tatum
4. Mindy Kaling
5. Pink
6. Amber Heard
7. Gabrielle Union
8. Molly Sims
9. Stacy Keibler

VIDEO: Gisele Bundchen…. singing.

Gisele Bundchen may be one of the world’s most beautiful women, but I’m thinking she should stick to modeling. Singing ain’t her gig.

Here’s a new video of Gisele singing Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and she does it very, very poorly.

The song is part of her collaboration with H&M.

What do you think of the video?

mhu-reviews-4141439

Do you have any scars that drive you crazy? Would you like to erase them all together? Mederma has now come up with a product that does all the hard work – while you sleep!

Tonight is the night change can begin, with Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream. It’s the first and only overnight scar cream specifically formulated to work while you sleep.

During sleep our bodies work harder to reverse the skin damage caused during the day, repairing and regenerating skin cells at a faster rate.

Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream is formulated to complement this nighttime activity with Tripeptol, a skin-nourishing complex with peptides, collagen, and antioxidants to promote healthy looking skin and help your skin fight free radical damage.

Once-nightly application is clinically shown to make scars smaller and less visible, and can begin to bring noticeable results in as little as 14 nights.

Now, the last thing you think about at night makes your scar the last thing you think about during the day.

A few quick facts about Mederma PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream:

· Mederma PM is the first and only scar cream formulated to work at night, when the skin naturally regenerates faster.

· Mederma PM is clinically shown to improve the overall appearance, size, color and texture of scars, making them softer, smoother and less noticeable.

· It not only improves the appearance of old and new scars, but it is also formulated with Tripeptol™, a skin-nourishing complex with peptides, collagen and antioxidants, that complements skin’s nighttime regenerative activity to promote healthy-looking skin.

· In a clinical study, subjects who used Mederma PM saw noticeable improvement in the size of scars in as little as 2-4 weeks. After using for 8 weeks as directed, subjects saw a 50% reduction in the size of their scars.

· Mederma PM fits easily and conveniently into existing beauty and skin care regimens. It is applied once nightly and can be used with other cosmetic products, like moisturizers and anti-aging creams.

Mederma PM is available in the First Aid and Skin Care sections of drugstores nationwide in a 1-ounce tube that retails for about $25 and a 1.7-ounce jar that retails for about $35.
