Holographic shades on nails and eyes is going to be all the rage this fall and the October issue of Lucky magazine is narrowing down their favorites, one which just so happens to be exclusive to b-glowing!

Kevyn Aucoin's Loose Shimmer Shadow in Lapis is only available at b-glowing and is a gorgeous bluish plum. Use on it's own or create a peacock eye look by incorporating other shimmer shadows like Citrine and/or Jade in the corners of eyes and on lower lids.
Also featured in Lucky is Erno Laszlo's Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm. Considered a 'new miracle cream' by Lucky, this balm will help stimulate collagen production and protect skin from free radicals with a blend of raspberry stem cells, tree oils and antioxidants.

The MTV Video Music Awards is a nice end to the trophy season as it allows celebrities to not be overly coiffed and powdered. Anything goes with short dresses, mohawks (Miley Cyrus channels Pink) and white being a big color theme on the red carpet. Actress Zoe Saldana looked relaxed and gorgeous in a nude pink dress and tasseled faux-bob created with by Mark Roszak for Oscar Blandi! Recreate her look by following the steps below:
Step 1: Apply Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum to towel dried hair. Always apply the product to the hair starting at the ends and working your way up. The ends tend to absorb the most products, keeping it lighter towards the roots. The oil not only smells amazing, but it protects the hair from any heat styling.
Step 2: Rough dry the hair to enhance it's natural texture, until it's completely dry. With a 3/4" curling iron take random sections of hair and wrap around the barrel, leaving just the tips of the ends out. Once the head is curled, piece each section out with fingers, pulling apart the curls.
Step 3: Lift hair from the ends to the roots and spray Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray for extra volume.
Step 4: Gently tease the underneath sections of the hair for grip and loosely tuck the ends under and pin in place, crisscrossing the bobby pins. Allow some of the layers to fall out for a messier look.
Step 5: Finish by spraying Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray. This hairspray is perfectly lightweight but has an incredible hold and a soft feel on the hair.
Step 6: Find your cutest cocktail dress and hit the town!
