“Your eyelashes look amazing,” he said, at least three times during the night. At first, I was a little skeptical. I mean, when was the last time you got a compliment on your lashes from a guy who didn’t idolize Cher and sweat glitter (to steal a phrase from my gal, Amber)?
At first, I thought Graham’s flattery might have been the result of the Glenlivet he was sipping at the reception. But when I stopped in the ladies loo and spied myself in the mirror, I realized that the compliments were well-deserved.
What was my secret? I’ll tell you. Swipe on Lancome’s Oscillation Powerbooster lash primer, from root to tip. And while it’s still wet, paint on a coat of Lancome Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara. Hypnose Drama’s s-shaped brush paints on inky goodness, resulting in fanned out, eye-popping, full body fringe. The formula is on the thin side, which means that it won’t dry out, or worse - leave your lashes a clumped up mess. I adore how the applicator grasps even my stumpiest, non-existent baby lashes and transforms them into their best selves.
Hypnose Drama is, by far, the best mascara on the market right now and it is absolutely worth every penny of its $24.50 price tag. But if you want to up the proverbial ante and elicit stares and compliments galore, you’ll dig deeper into your wallet and buck up for the primer too.
Lancome Powerbooster and Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara are available at Sephora.

A: Since we are moving a little forward into the future, we have changed up the color palette for each character to go along with the time period.
Q: When you were preparing for this season, did you do any research for inspiration? If so, what most inspired you?
A: Weeks and weeks of meetings and research. I love looking through the old magazines. They are a great reference and a huge source of inspiration; however, we do try to keep the characters looking like real people that do their own makeup and not like movie stars with a makeup artist standing by. Magazines and old movies are a great guideline for a basic look and color selection.
Q: How would you describe the looks of each one of the characters? How do they differ?
A: Joan Holloway- always put together, very sassy and sexy
Betty Draper- although she is a housewife she is an ex model, so her makeup is clean but very current for the period
Peggy Olson- Peggy is a young and fresh faced business woman of that period, she is a very clean natural makeup
Q: What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?
A: Joan Holloway- We do a heavier eye on Christina, so the key products would be eyeliner and strip lashes.
Betty Draper- Betty has 2 distinct looks, her at home look and her going out/evening look. For home she is very natural, basically a sheer foundation, think black eyeliner and mascara. Evening Betty goes a little thicker on the liner and a brighter lipstick, but aalways coordinated with her clothing.
Peggy Olson- Since the key to Peggy’s look is to appear as though she is wearing no makeup, a great foundation is super important. Also, a natural cheek and lip stain is applied to give her a little color.
Q: What are your favorite MAC products for each character?
A: Joan Holloway- Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Fluidline in Blacktrack and Rich Ground, brown and black, and Eye Shadow in Soft Brown.
Betty Draper- Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Blushcreme in Posey, and Lipstick in Vegas Volt, Lip Pencils in Redd and Cherry.
Peggy Olson- Eye Shadow in Orb, Vanilla, and Soft Brown and Blot Powder.
Q: Everyone always notices the lips on the show, but brows seem to play a very important part to the look. Can you talk about the brows on the show?
A: Women of the 60's had a stricter code of style and etiquette, so people tended to follow the trends closer to the book. Nowadays, women have a variety of different brow styles so we are constantly tweezing, shaping, and filling the brows to recreate the look of the period.
Q: Each character has the most perfect lashes framing her eyes. What are your favorite lashes to use to get that perfectly plump line of lashes?
A: We love the MAC individual lashes as well as the traditional strip lashes.
Q: Do you collaborate with the hair and costume departments when coming up with a look.
A: Absolutely! We have at least 3 meetings per episode to create the look as a unit. I could not do this show without Lucia Mace (hair), Janie Bryant (costumes), and my fabulous key Ron Pipes!
Q: There seems to be a lot of making out on the show, how many times do you have to redo those red lips? Does it get messy?
A: We do what we can to seal the lip color, but we still have to go in every take to perform a minor clean up.
Q: What can real women take away from the show’s look and incorporate into their everyday look?
A: Well, a great start would be lining the top lash line only with a gel liner like MAC Fluidline. We love this product for recreating the perfect 60's eye. Also, replacing gloss and sheer or shimmer lipsticks with matte reds, bright pinks, and corals help create a more retro look. Lastly, instead of a powder blush try using creme in pinks and corals to create a flushed looking cheek. For evening, strip lashes are always a bonus.

Suhani, who her mark in Tollywood by 'Sawal', became a childdrinking. It is reported that a petite girl with sexy shapes and sizesis becoming addicted to alcohol and is taking it very much.
Usually, to overcome the stress and tension related to work, saysthat each character uses a certain amount of alcohol from time to time. Maybe at the weekend and the next day.But in contrast to Suhani said to be eating it very much. Adding towhat the end of the week, it said that it competes with her other friends in pubs and late night parties and takes it in large quantities.
As expected, she has become the hot property of the south movie makers but then she has been giving a strict no to Kollywood offers.
Apparently, there was a time when Ileana got offers from hot stars like Vijay, Ajith and even superstar Rajinikanth (for his animated movie) but then Ileana is said to have refused the offers politely.
The reason for that happens to be her miserable experience during her debut film ‘Kedi’ in Kollywood, as per sources.

a sudden fever (a high body temperature of 38°C/100.4°F or above), and

Megan Fox will NOT portray Catwoman in the next Batman movie.
Great Britain's The Sun started this rumor a few days ago, it gained a bit of traction and then was shotdown by Hollywood insiders.
But is it really such a bad idea? Michelle Pfeiffer donned the iconic black leather suit in Batman Returns; and then Halle Berry (pictured) took on the role in the critically-lambasted 2004 movie Catwoman.
Neither actress did much with the character. Might Fox's dark features, experience in action films and general sexiness be just what is required for the seductive villain? You tell us!
The troubled actress says she was going through a period of her life that resulted in "a perfect storm" that resulted in her hitting absolute "rock bottom."
"I went through a tough spot where everything compounded on me, and it was a perfect storm, like everything was happening to me at once," Barton said.
"The show, travel and then a fairly routine surgery that went wrong - it’s still just healing," said Barton, who may or may not have tried to take her own life.
Shortly after her stint in a Los Angeles mental ward, Barton headed to NYC to film A Beautiful Life. The "routine surgery" was to take out her wisdom teeth.
A source told The National Enquirer that Stewart is searching for a new residence. But not just any new residence!
"Kristen wants a super-romantic place to share with Rob in Los Angeles," said the insider.
And why shouldn't she? The latest round of reports regarding these co-stars pretty much confirm that they are dating happily.
The actress will have Randeep Hooda wooing her in Pittie Group and Victoria Entertainment’s film Love Khichdi. Speaking about her role in the movie, she says, “I play a South Indian girl who has been living in Mumbai. I play Randeep’s best friend in the movie. Thankfully, it’s not a stereotypical role where I have to put on a fake South Indian accent.”
