It may be closing-in on winter, but that's no reason to give up the warm glow of summer, at least as far as your eyes are concerned! Madeline shares her eye shadow secret for bringing out the summer in your eyes by using glittering, warm colors. She uses a shimmery turquoise, grey, and light yellow to create a warm contrast for a verdant look that calls to mind sunshine and the lushness of a summer day. But don't get too hung up on the colors if you think green isn't your thing! Experiment with other warm colors in your pallet and create your own hot looks!

You've been back-to-school for a few weeks, and by now you're probably getting pretty tired of that same old 'do. Why not try stylin' something different that looks really cute but only takes five minutes? Seriously, it really took less than 5 minutes to do! All you need is clean hair, a headband, a couple of hair bows and the ability to braid your hair. Don't forget to improvise, because this hairstyle allows you to modify it to fit your tastes. For instance, instead of braiding-in your bangs, you can leave them loose and tuck them in behind the braids, or let some strands hang-out to lighten up the look. Be creative. Go ahead and leave a comment to let everyone know how it worked for you, or even post pictures in our Gallery!
