A little bit of blush can go a long way, but it can go even farther when you know how to apply it to your exact face shape.
We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration and e-commerce site. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their expert advice on all things nuptials—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.
In the summer of 1853, a hot tempered chef was manning the kitchen at a chic resort. A dinner guest found the chef’s French fries too thick for his liking and sent the plate back to the kitchen. In an effort to one up the persnickety customer, the chef sliced the potatoes paper-thin. And eureka! America’s favorite salty, snack—duh! the potato chip—was born.
Unexpected discovery of a seriously great thing, right? Like our favorite crunchy fix, these four beauty products have surprising (and totally awesome!) beginnings.
After weeks of worldwide anticipation, this afternoon the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a royal baby boy! We’re so excited for the new parents and send them our hearty congratulations.

From pampering products to multitaskers, here’s what we would bestow upon the duchess.

I’ve been a huge Halle Berry fan since her scene-stealing turn in 1999’s Bulworth. So when I heard via The National Enquirer (yes, I am proudly subscribe to their emails) that the Oscar-winner recently tied the knot, I immediately launched into amateur sleuth mode. Translation: I trolled celebrity gossip sites for hours.
My digging unearthed some juicy tidbits about the nuptials, but not the one thing I was really looking for: a picture of the radiant bride in her wedding dress. Drats! While I await more details, I opted to try and recreate the leading lady’s signature look for myself.
There are people that are fair and then there are people that are extra super fair. I fall into the latter camp, which means that blush is a non-negotiable part of my beauty routine. If I leave the house in the morning and forget to add a little color to my cheeks, I’ll have at least two people ask me, “Meredith, are you feeling alright?” The answer is yes, I feel totally fine, I just happen to be exceptionally pale, thankyouverymuch.
