Make Up For Ever has put together a limited edition 30 Years 30 Colors 30 Artists Palette ($250) featuring 30 curated Artist Shadows chosen from the ”best in the business” makeup artists in beauty & fashion, celebrity, film, television and theater. Their favorite colors are organized in 3 sets of 10: smoky shades, brights and neutrals. ”We saw this campaign as a way for us to thank the pro community for making the brand what it is today, and we hoped it would encourage the everyday woman to reveal her inner artist,” says Simone Ciafardini, Make Up For Ever Vice President of Education & Artistry. Available September 2, 2014 on Sephora.com and in MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques.
Also starting in September, for 30 days you’ll be privy to the personal stories from these top makeup artists via daily videos that will be highlighted on the brand’s social pages.

Hanging out with mompreneur Rosie Pope, the star of Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels and maternity and baby clothing designer, is like talking to any other mom on the playground. You trade tricks, share complaints… and almost forget this particular mom is building quite the impressive empire which also includes her Mommy IQ book and MomPrep parenting classes.
Pope recently hosted a media event to unveil her Fall collection for expectant moms and their tots.
Her current line of baby clothes mirrors the best in her personality. The prints are warm and sweet, yet functional and pragmatic in their design. Rompers have removable feet to extend the life of outfits for fast-growing babies. The use of warm, muted greys as the new gender-neutral color is a welcome change from the tired yellows. Sweat material provides comfort and durability for active little ones. Overall, this line offers well-styled yet comfy options for babies and toddlers. The maternity line is also what you would expect from Pope — chic, shi shi and yet uber comfy.
The collection will be available in Rosie’s stores and on her website.
