A Bright Idea

Today is shaping up to be a gorgeous day. But lately, the weather has been, well, not so summery.

Overcast skies. Frequent showers. A general case of the blahs.

We won't point fingers, but if Emilia and Fabio have any say, more dreariness may be on the way.

If only there was some other way to brighten your day. Or at least your face…

Oh hey, there is. Behold: six colorful, eye-catching beauty products that will help you light up a room.
