Beauty tutorials from Milan Fashion Week

We take a look behind the scenes at the hair and makeup for three of Milan's hottest fashion shows -- Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace. All three shows benefited from the talents of hair-and-beauty dream team Guido Palau and Pat McGrath. Here's how they pulled it off.

Hairstylist Guido Palau gave the models their cinematic, wet look hair using a mixture of different products. In fact he called it less of a hairstyle "and more of an attitude." Hair was cut to hang just over the shoulders and drenched in a fixing product and Palau then added an oil just before the girls hit the runway for extra shine. Beauty legend Pat McGrath described the makeup as "a done-undone look." The smoky eye and burgundy lips were blotted away for a faded glamour effect.

The Dolce & Gabbana look was inspired by the Byzantine cathedral at Monreale in Sicily. McGrath was going for an aristocratic "but at the same time modern" look. Sophia Loren soft-winged eyes started with pencil but were drawn out with liquid eyeliner. "Tons and tons of mascara" and a smudge effect complete the look. Models' faces were covered with concealer, and lips were a mixture of different tones of matte red. Palau added a bit of product and teased hair into a soft up-do.

The makeup look at Versace was a "groomed, healthy, glowing version of punk" according to McGrath. Blusher went on the cheeks, and the girls were given light brown eyelids and heavy mascara. A nude blush color on the lips and strong eyebrows finished the look. Palau blowdryed the hair, then side-parted and lifted the front with extra product and heat to give a quiff effect. The ladylike but "boyish" style was held in place with hairspray on top but swished loose at the ends.

    The average person breathes in and out up to 23,040 times per day, but most of us do so inefficiently, taking short, shallow chest breaths while subconsciously contracting our abs, says Jane Pernotto Ehrman, a behavioral health specialist at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Lifestyle Medicine.

    Know Your Feelings: How to Manage 5 Negative Emotions

    As my son is now at the age where he gets loudly and violently frustrated when he can't express his emotions, I've been thinking a lot about how to teach him which emotions are which. It's no coincidence that many of us would choose similar body language and words to represent a specific emotion. The researched and published Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that we really do feel different emotions in different parts of our bodies. Acknowledging how and where we feel …

    Go for a long workout: Even squeezing in a quick workout during the week can be rough, so schedule a longer weekend workout. Don't hold out for a big meal: When you sit down to a special meal famished, you're far more likely to overeat and overdrink. Don't overbooze at brunch: When inhibitions are lowered with a few mimosas or Bloody Marys, it's easy to overeat without realizing - and need a nap right after the meal. Linger on a single cocktail throughout the meal; …
