We first fell in love with YouCam’s Perfect Photo & Selfie Editor, but now we discovered its latest diagnostic tool, a Skin Diary.  Relying on Augmented Reality (AR) facial recognition technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI), the app evaluates the skin’s condition in real-time via the user’s smartphone camera.  The new feature scores four signs of skin health: wrinkles, spots, skin texture, and dark circles. After the skin is scanned, a detailed skin health report is shown, highlighting the user’s skin age and relative skin scores as compared to the same demographic of other users.  Users can also track their daily results in the Skin Diary section, which allows them to the check the efficacy of their skincare regimen over time.

The end of summer is typically when we tire of wearing heavy sun protection, causing much of our moisturizing routine to fall by the wayside.  We can cut ourselves a bit of slack, though, if we are wearing Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost CosmeticsNeutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint instantly quenches parched skin with a healthy dose of hydrating, plumping hyaluronic acid.  The moisture-rich formula (available in ten shades) keeps skin hydrated for up to twenty-four hours and offers flawless, oil-free coverage, which doesn’t clog pores or settle into fine lines.  When masking imperfections, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer is a perfect partner to Hydrating Tint.  Its unique hydrating core, also filled with hyaluronic acid, moisturizes as it glides onto the skin.  An Oprah Magazine O-Ward winner, the lightweight, creamy formula offers buildable coverage in five flattering shades.

Lucy Hale slayed the red carpet at Sunday night’s 2017 Teen Choice Award.  Avon Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kelsey Deenihan, was inspired by the rich tones in Hale’s Fausto Pugsili dress. “Matching the lip to the dress would have been too predictable,” said Deenihan, “so instead I used that same rich, bright color on her eyes. When you don’t have the exact shade you’re looking for, you gotta get creative and go custom.”
 To start, Kelsey applied  Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Supurb Wine to Lucy’s lids, bottom lash line and crease using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. This lipstick acts as a primer and base color for her dramatic eye look. Next, she applied the bottom left red shade from the Chanel Candeur ET Experience Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow. She finished off the dramatic eye using Avon Big and Daring Volume Mascara in Black and defined Lucy’s brows with the Dior Universal Eyebrow Pencil.
Kelsey began on Lucy’s skin by applying a thin veil of Armani Power Fabric Foundation in 5 to her face and décolletage. On the cheeks she started with Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in Gold Dust followed by mark. By Avon Touch and Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette to add a soft, pearly and pink glow to the cheeks.  To complete the look, Kelsey used mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Bare All.
Before heading out to the red carpet, Kelsey lightly misted Lucy’s face with the Avon True Color Makeup Setting Spray to ensure her makeup stayed put through the night and then she was off to the red carpet.
