New at Planet Beauty: Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara and OPI's Nordic Collection

It's almost the weekend, and that means it's time for minimal makeup and mani/pedis for all! If you're looking for a little weekend pick me up, try our newest volumizing mascara and one of OPI's newest shades. 

If you're in need of some serious lash therapy, you need to try Kevyn Aucoin's Lash Curler and The Volume Mascara. This mascara will not disappoint, especially if you love a smaller brush. Curl your lashes with the curler first and then layer the mascara for long, beautiful lashes. Unlike other mascaras on the market, this one coats each lash perfectly, creating a tubing effect for amazing length and volume. I've never been a fan of tubing mascaras, but the formula is so smooth and creamy, it goes on with ease for natural, volumized lashes. You will love this beauty combo if you have short, hard-to-work-with lashes that never seem to cooperate.

For those of you who are anxiously awaiting the fall and winter seasons, OPI's Nordic Collection is going to make your head spin with how beautiful it is. This collection is anything but boring and offers such a fun variety of shades. Take a mental vacation to the Nordic region and satisfy your polish addiction with these gorgeous shades. As always, the names will instantly brighten your day. How about Thank Glogg It's Friday? Or Suzi Has a Swede Tooth? Oh OPI, you always know the way to our hearts! 


Hollywood's Nude Attitude

Award season always seems to inspire a little Hollywood glamour in all of us. While I find myself personally excited to root for my favorite films and actors and artists, I'm not going to lie. I absolutely love the red carpet pre-shows and best-worst dressed lists that get posted the next day. As I sift through pictures, I make mental notes about hair, makeup and nail polish. It's the closest thing to having a personal stylist, right?

One thing I noticed so far this year is the presence of nudes and natural tones in makeup among celebrities. I tend to be a more natural girl myself, so seeing some of my favorite stars embracing browns, taupes and bronzed shades is refreshing. Sure, it's fun to wear emerald-shaded eyeshadow on a Friday night, but I want an everyday look that makes me look Red Carpet fabulous.
