    When you’re a beauty editor, it’s hard not to become a little bossy. I mean, if you see someone with ridiculously thin brows, you immediately find yourself wanting to get down on two knees and beg them to grow them back, STAT. And that’s just the start of it.

    Mon, 3 August 2009 8:49AM

    Oh Gwyneth I do think you’re just so pretty but what’s with the heavy tan? I mean, yes, you look hot in that figure-hugging shimmering mini and your shoulder-length hair looks so great all wavy and just a but ruffled like that, but I’m afraid you’ve lost me a bit with all the brown skin…. more

    Fri, 12 September 2008 5:03PM

    I have very fair skin. Can I still wear bright lipstick? Yes! Bright shades are very flattering on fair skin. Go forth and purchase.
