2. Okay—we are SO guilty of this concealer mistake.

3. Close your eyes, and imagine a world where you can pay whatever you want for your beauty products…
It's a reality with 100% Pure's new "pay as you wish" initiative, which allows you to literally pay whatever you want for its newest all-natural skincare launches, which debut today, September 8. Oh, and here's the kicker: Whatever money you do put forth is actually a donation to Forget Me Not Farm, a California rescue organisation for farm animals.
4. Victoria Beckham's upcoming Estée Lauder collection is DEFINITELY going to sell out.
After dominating the fashion scene, Victoria Beckham is finally turning her hand to beauty. Her first makeup collection, created with Estée Lauder, will launch on October 1 via EsteeLauder.com.au. Comprised of 15 limited edition products (including our fave, Morning Aura Illuminating Cream—Beckham shows it off in this video), the range DEFINITELY won't be available for long. (According to our sources the waiting list is already four figures-long, so mark your diaries.)

Often referred to as the "world's oldest yoga teacher," Tao Porchon-Lynch is also known for her larger-than-life smile—and she's perfectly happy to spread the joy. Learn her secrets for living your best life here. (Spoiler: It's pretty simple.)
