The Dancing with the Stars Collection by Stila Cosmetics.

I'll admit it. I watch Dancing with the Stars on Monday nights. This season I am loving Amber Riley, surprised at how great Snooki is, and can't help but want a win for Valerie Harper. But let's discuss the looks. Aside from the obvious spray tans, I am always mesmerized by thehair and makeup looks. They must have an enormous team of creative hair and makeup artists working on the cast each week. I had no idea that Stila was the brand used behind the scenes. This year, Stila is taking backstage front and center by creating its newest collaboration, the Stila + Dancing with the Stars Collection.

Lighten up and let your skin breathe with the wonderful Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm SPF 30. Skin perfectors and SPF give you everything you need to just swipe on and go. I reviewed Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm last year and was pleased with it, except for the fact that there was no SPF in it. This new updated version contains SPF 30 making it both perfect and easy for summer.

Lips and Cheeks

Convertible Color is perfect for both lips & cheeks. The color peony is creamy, lush and the perfect peachy shade for almost any skin tone. Just dab on lips and cheeks with your fingers; it will sink right in for a natural summer flush. Peach is such a natural pretty shade for summer, both with or without a tan.


The secret to fabulous poolside eyes are the products. They need to last and hold up to all the elements. Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara. This is the perfect combination for defined eyes that won't smudge or budge.
