And how can you ensure streak-free polish application?

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/How-Make-Your-Legs-Look-Good-Tutorial-37785847"></a>Everyone gets a little leggy during the Summer - hello, hot pants, swimsuits, and skirts! When your legs take center stage, you probably want them to look their best. The gym and a balanced diet can help for the most part, but if you are in a rush or need an instant fix before a big event, there are a few ways (seven, to be exact) you can make your gams glam! Start by avoiding salty foods, sugary sodas, and alcohol if you can, since they can bloat your legs. Your shaving technique can enhance how good your legs look, and adding color is a surefire way to not only give your legs a glow but also help conceal imperfections that we all have, like cellulite and scars. <a href="http://www.shopstyle.com/action/loadRetailerProductPage?id=455737608&pid=uid9600-3726140-12" target="_blank">Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs</a> has helped us in times of need on set, and the results speak for themselves.

In fact, there are many ways you should and shouldn't use your concealer, so we decided to break down our best learned techniques. Need help with wrinkle control, don't want to look cakey, or aren't sure which formula is best for you? Check out the 10 commandments of properly using concealer.

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Color-Astrology-36100772"></a>Need a big promotion? Want to find love? It could all align with the perfect manicure. Color astrology is sweeping the nation. So what is it exactly? According to <a href="http://www.rosetheodora.com/#!astrology/ckiy" target="_blank">astrologist Rose Theodora</a>, color astrology helps people find colors that balance and enhance their lives. For instance, earthy Capricorns might be tempted by shades of green and brown, but a hardworking goat should opt for feminine pastels to lighten her up a bit, since Cappys can come off as strong-willed and dominant. We visited Los Angeles's <a href="http://enameldiction.com/" target="_blank">Enamel Diction</a> salon, which offers a color astrology service with an accompanying nail art option, to learn what it entails. Who knows? Your next big bonus could be a result of your outstanding manicure. On Kirbie: <a href="http://www.fleetcollection.com/" target="_blank">Fleet Collection</a> dress
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/celebrity/Tess-Holliday-Other-Models-Redefining-Beauty-37588530"></a>Tess Holliday dropped out of high school because of the intense bullying she endured, but she wouldn't allow her haters to stop her from pursuing her modeling career. In 2013, she founded the wildly successful #EffYourBeautyStandards social media campaign, and in 2015, she became the first size 22 model to sign with a major modeling agency. "There are so many messages in the media that say it's all about being slender, about having your hair a certain way, or wearing your makeup a certain way," Holliday told Today. "We're just tired of being silenced. We want change from the media and society in general." Like Tess, other models such as Winnie Harlow and Madeline Stuart fought adversity to redefine the standard of beauty.
