Glamour explains how to create "mega-smoky" eyes. And by "mega-smoky" they mean "raccoon." [Beauty Department/Glamour]

• Lauren Luke, a single mom whose YouTube makeup-how-to video channel has 39 million viewers, just created her own makeup line called By Lauren Luke. Oh, good ol' YouTube. [BellaSugar]

Yves Saint Laurent's new summer makeup collection features the limited-edition Trésor d'Afrique Collector palette. The bright-blue eyeshadow included in it looks so pretty on the model, but we fear we'd just look batty and/or trampy in it. [Daily Obsession]

HAIR
• The biggest mistake people make when performing at-home color treatments is putting color right onto the hair from the bottle. Mix it in a bowl first. Duh. [NYT]

SKIN
• A new anti-aging cream called 2-Week Miracle promises to make aged skin look like a 20-year-old's in fourteen days. The testers said it made skin look brighter, tighter, and less wrinkly. We probably don't need to tell you, but they still didn't look like 20-year-olds. [Daily Mail]
