L’Oréal Paris arguably has some of the most gorgeous faces in Hollywood promoting its iconic line. From Julianne Moore to Blake Lively, Naomi Watts, Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Lopez—oh, and let’s not forget Beyoncé—the brand is known for its beautiful faces and quality products at accessible prices. But now, the cosmetics giant is enlisting a new kind of talent to front its campaigns: bloggers. The first digital lady to join the L’Oréal family? Kristina Bazan of Kayture. The successful 21-year-old style blogger, with over two million Instagram followers, has been tapped as the newest e-spokeswoman of L’Oréal Paris, which makes her the first member of the blogosphere to join the cosmetics company. Of the new opportunity, Bazan explained, “My wish is to use this new voice, this new amazing role as a spokesperson to spread a positive message about beauty and make all women around the world feel and know that they are all worth it.” Bazan will work with the brand to create exclusive digital content as well as “share a positive message about beauty and encourage everyone to trust in their self-worth.” If the brand believes she’s #worthit, we’d say this is a campaign to watch.

The greatest thing about a trend is that you can stop doing it the second you feel like you are over it—like the moment you realise you’ve been staring at your own stiletto nails for way too long. Even though we still have a few months left to go in 2015, SheFinds found eight beauty trends that are starting to fade away as we welcome fall, and some of them might surprise you. While we aren’t sad to see the aforementioned stiletto nails, unnatural highlights, and drastic ombré on their way out, we were surprised to see SheFinds call out classic red lips and unnatural lashes. Are you ready to change up those items in your routine as well? We suggest replacing bright red lips with a berry hue, like Vincent Longo’s Demi Matte Velour Lipstick ($23) in Gioelle Berry, and take it easy on your lashes with a simple coat of Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara ($17).

So it’s time for a new hair dryer, and you’ve done your homework on which stylist-recommended tool to get. But are you one of those people who freeze in terror the moment they tear open the box of their new hair dryer and see all the attachments that come with it? If so, you can exhale, as PureWow has put together a handy guide on what each attachment does and makes a strong case for why you shouldn’t just throw them in the drawer and ignore them forever. Looking to really define your curls or add volume? They’ve got you covered. [PureWow]
Is the classic French manicure making a comeback? Before you panic, remembering the thick, acrylic-tipped look you wore to senior prom, hear us out. InStyle spoke with manicurist Julie Kandalec, who confirmed that the trend was experiencing somewhat of renaissance, but with a softer, less-obvious appearance. Spotted at the Altuzarra’s fall show in February, the classic nail look was back, but it was without a distinct, white, noticeable tip. According to Kandalec, the look was created with just one coat of Essie's Adore-a-Ball ($9), which is pretty sheer. We also like Yves Saint Laurent Beauty La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer ($27) in Rose Abstrait, and Kandalec recommends using just one coat and working with your natural nail shape instead of adding extensions or tips, to get a more natural look. What’s French for “we’re willing to give it a try”? [InStyle]

Are you struggling to describe this excruciating experience to your boss or loved ones? Look no further, as Huffington Post has created some pretty intense illustrations to explain the pain and agony these debilitating headaches can induce. These should help get your point across and get you out of that family dinner you absolutely can’t manage to sit through. [Huffington Post]
