Let's be honest, we could all do with a little eye brightening in the morning. I don't know about you, but it's a struggle to even get my eyes to stay open when the alarm goes off, let alone look perky. That's where these tricksters come in. As well as offering your usual trifecta of eye solutions (read: targeting puffiness, dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles) they also help to boost radiance around the eye area, making you look wide awake and ready to face the day. And whether you've got $20 or $500 to spend, there's an option for you.
Now that we're almost in Winter (sob), it's time to start thinking about trading those lightweight lotions that you used in the warmer months for a more nourishing formula. A rich body butter is just the ticket for the upcoming season when skin needs that extra moisture hit. But that doesn't mean wet, thick, hard-to-absorb creams. We've tracked down five body butters that soften and smooth skin with their buttery texture but sink in easily providing long-lasting hydration.

Whatever you decide on, you're sure to find it here as we've rounded up 10 of the best mini marvels for travel.
First Kate, then Nicole, now Katie. That's right peeps, we've got another October cover where the A-lister is wearing purple eyeshadow. And three makes a trend. Y'know that, right? Kate Hudson's ELLE cover was a full-on avant-garde eye that you're more likely to see on the runway rather than in reality, but I think Katie Holmes' look is totally wearable. Scrap that. I know it is. Because I wore it last week. And everyone loved it. Totally LOVE-d it. Seriously purple eyeshadow is a sure fire way to stay on top of your game and remain pop-u-lar. Strange, but true. Try a wash of lilac on the lids with NARS D. Gorgeous Eyeshadow ($48) and then finish off with a line of BYS Auto Eyeliner with Smudger in Purple ($4.95) underneath the bottom lash line. Alternatively you could just line with shadow instead or opt for a lighter liner like Korres Eyeliner Pencil in Purple White 11 ($29.95), which is a nice way to try the trend. You like?
This flavonoid (a type of vegetable-derived compound) has been popping up in lots of products lately, promising skin texture and anti-ageing benefits. Evidence has yet to show whether it's really the holy grail of skincare ingredients, but quercetin certainly does have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. If you're in the market for a new magic makeup must-have or have have trouble with skin inflammation and irritation, there are plenty of products that offer quercetin as their signature ingredient. If you want to go Greek, makes a Quercetin and Oak Anti-Ageing Night Cream ($64.95). If you have easily irritated skin, Smashbox Camera Ready Full Cover Foundation ($44) also uses quercetin. Meanwhile, if you're worried about free radicals and age spots, try Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Tone Perfecting Creme ($135). The cheapest and most direct route, though, is to buy quercetin nutritional supplements, like Alpha-H AlphaCeuticals Capsules ($69.95).
