What’s Your Mood? If you’re a child of the 70s-90s, you probably remember mood rings, which let the world know if you were feeling anxious, excited, nervous, tense, calm, in love and a whole host of emotions. Now, a makeup brand, Sara Hill, wants you to wear these emotions on your face with the launch of a new campaign to celebrate how makeup can help alter your mood. For those of you who don’t want your blush to turn crimson red at the sight of your crush, not to worry. The makeup itself doesn’t actually change color with your mood, the brand is simply bringing awareness to the over 40 colors of eyeshadow it has that can portray a range of emotions from happy to angry.

Look like Angela Basset…OK, not really. Actress Angela Basset is jumping on the opportunity to enter beauty in collaboration with “Darker Skin Tones by Dr. Barbara Sturm.” The brand will feature skin care for deep complexions and includes two cleansers, two face creams and a serum, all of which will be available this month. The goal is to address the skin issues and concerns those with darker skin deal with so they can fell more confident when they look in the mirror.

As Jordin Sparks once put it, “You’re on my heart just like a tattoo.” Or, in this case on my lips. Make-up artist Violette Serat reviled a new lip art she worked on with MAC Cosmetics on Instagram in late June and it’s got the internet a-buzzing. The lip art features tiny tattoos of skulls, roses, lips, hearts, you name it, all over the lips. We can’t wait to see which bloggers jump on this trend (and who actually wears it out in public). View it here.
