    More: 3-year-old fashionista has more Instagram followers than you

    A Japanese woman named Pico has created a range of extremely lifelike cat handbags and they're going down a treat on Twitter.

    The handmade bags have individual markings, whiskers, a tail and a collar with lead that doubles up as a strap. According to Rocket News 24, Pico stitches each bag by hand before airbrushing with acrylic paint to create realistic fur markings.

    So crazy are cat lovers for the bags they’re paying up to 83,000 yen (£450) for them.

    For those days when you want to sling your cat over your shoulder, y'know. (Is it just us or does that cat look less than happy to be there?)

    Pico also makes cat purses with zips on top of their heads and long straps.

    And even a snazzy inner lining.

    This black cat bag even comes with a natty straw hat. Because in a world where cats can be worn as handbags they can rock headwear too, right?!

    Unfortunately — despite the huge demand — Pico has no immediate plans to sell her cat bags outside her native Japan so we'll just have to make do with keeping up with her designs on Twitter.

    What do you think of Pico's cat handbags? Let us know whether you think they're wonderful, or just plain weird, in the comments below.

    Fill in lips with a deep wine liquid lipstick.

    You will need:

    • White cream color
    • Black loose shadow or pigment
    • Mixing medium
    • Eyedropper
    • Glue stick
    • Black cream color or jumbo eye liner
    • White sheet

    Directions:

    Step 1:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 1
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Begin by stippling white cream color all over your entire face. I used a synthetic kabuki brush which I found worked especially well.

    Step 2:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 2
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    If your brows are as dark as night like mine, you may need to cancel out the intensity with an orange color corrector first. Feel free to skip this step if your brows are on the lighter side.

    Step 3:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 3
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Now, using a glue stick, apply several layers to your brow hairs, letting them dry in between and powdering if needed.

    Step 4:

    With a dry sponge, stipple white cream color onto your brows, covering them until invisible.

    Step 5:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 5
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Using a black jumbo liner or cream color, cover entire eyelid, from lash line to crease.

    Step 6:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 6
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Line your waterline and lower lash line with the same black liner.

    Step 7:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 7
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Place a small amount of red cream color, lipstick or blush, which can work here, just above the crease.

    Step 8:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 8
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Now for the best part of all! To create our black tears, we will mix black loose shadow with mixing medium, and with a small synthetic brush, generously dab below lash line.

    Step 9:

    American Horror Story Halloween makeup: Step 9
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Now using an eyedropper to pick up mixing medium, drop at the beginning of the color where it’s most concentrated. This will create the look of natural tears. Let them flow as they may.

    Color Club just released a pumpkin spice latte-scented — yes, scented! — nail polish for just $9. The color isn't orange, but instead a nude shade perfect to match the sweaters and leggings you wear during your umpteenth visit to the pumpkin patch.

    And apparently they're a hit with even the most discriminating of PSL fans.

    "I enjoy the smell because it really smells like the fall! It smells like what a PSL smells like in my head, because a PSL doesn't smell as good as the nails," one tester told Cosmopolitan.

    More: The galaxy hair color trend is out-of-this-world amazing

    The color will go perfectly with your pumpkin spice-colored hair, which is actually a trend on Instagram, with bold, rich hues of oranges and reds. So now you can sip your PSL while smelling your PSL-scented nails and flipping your PSL-colored strands.

    Will we ever reach peak PSL? To be honest, we don't want to live in a world where fall doesn't mean pumpkin spice.

    Oh, but don’t wait if you're interested in the new Color Club polish because, like Starbucks PSLs, this fall-scented shade of polish will be gone when the leaves finish falling from the trees.

    More: 7 Classic makeup trends that were basically made for autumn

    To launch her book FacePaint: The Story of Makeup, Eldridge takes us on a journey spanning 2,000 years of makeup trends, beginning with Egyptian times, when both men and women of all classes wore makeup on a daily basis.

    Egyptian makeup
    Image: Lisa Eldridge/YouTube

    In Ancient Greece obvious makeup was frowned upon — apart from an enormous monobrow, it seems — and plants and fruits were used to provide subtle colour.

    Makeup trends ancient Greece
    Image: Lisa Eldridge/YouTube

    Fast-forward to the end of the 19th century and the public perception of makeup was changing. The birth of the silent movie and female emancipation helped makeup become a symbol of strength, with women keen to make a statement by copying the dark sooty eyes and small rosebud mouths of vamps and flappers.

    "The Best and Worst Makeup Moments in History" doesn't just remind us which makeup trends are best confined to the archives (mid-18th century blush overload springs to mind…)

    Mid-18th century makeup

    It's also a great reminder that, nowadays, anything goes. We have the freedom to mix and match our makeup styles, wearing as little or as much as we please. We can pair a '20s rosebud mouth with a monobrow à la Ancient Greece and that's perfectly OK.

    But before you start dropping glass on purpose just so you can get the joy of gluing the fragments to your nails, the look is actually not made from glass. Rather, thin pieces of cellophane are glued and perfectly arranged on your nail to mimic the opalescent shell of an abalone (a type of sea snail with an amazingly beautiful shell).

    From pearly whites to bright statement colours, when it comes to the shattered glass trend, there is a look to suit every preference.

    Have you ever tried following a new beauty trend that seemed almost impossible to achieve?

    You wouldn't be alone! I see quite a few every season that I'm dying to try, but I'm either a little hesitant about taking the plunge with a new style or I'm not able to get the look I'm striving for. What I have come to realize, though, is that with the right tools and products and a few attempts, these cute and fun new trends for the season are actually possible.

    Check out these four super-easy beauty trends to welcome the fall season:

    1. Rose and peach cheeks:

    Julep's Skip the Brush crème-to-powder blush stick
    Image: Sephora

    This fall and winter, the look is definitely softer. Think warm, light and rosy tones and stick to highlighting the apples of your cheeks. What I LOVE about this look is that it's very easy to achieve with minimal effort. One of my fave cheek colors right now: Julep's Skip the Brush crème-to-powder blush stick in "golden guava" (Julep, $24). This product eliminates all of the complication and easily blends for the perfect rosy cheeks.

    2. Metallic eye liner:

    Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in "cuff"
    Image: Sephora

    You may have seen this before — metallic shades make some sort of appearance every season. This season is a bit different, in that it's appearing in eyeliners in all shades of gold, bronze or silver. My top pick is Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in "cuff" (Sephora, $20), a metallic silver shimmer with silver micro-sparkles.

    3. Lavender lips:

    Buxom's Full-On Lip Polish in "Erin"
    Image: Sephora

    You're probably wondering how this typically spring color landed on a fall trends list. I was happy to see that instead of the normal deep reds and wine-colored lip colors, some really fun shades were seen on the runways this year. Surprisingly, it's fairly easy to pull this look off with a light lavender shade — glosses work very well with lavender, too. One that I love is Buxom's Full-On Lip Polish in "Erin" (Sephora, $19) — the "blushing lavender" color goes on super glossy with just the perfect pop of color.

    4. Leather headbands:

    faux-leather bow wrap in "camel"
    Image: Nordstrom

    This fall brings back some great trends in hairstyles and accessories, with leather headbands in both glossy and matte finishes popping up all over the runways and fashion scene. I especially like that this look is inexpensive, easy to achieve and excellent for styling hair when it may not be at its best. Other materials have also been incorporated to hold back your hair, like metal, texturing and even chopsticks — bringing a whole new fresh approach to this beauty trend. Cara makes a super-cute faux-leather bow wrap in "camel" that you can score at Nordstrom for only $22.

    We will start by defining our brows, more dramatically than you usually do. Wonder Woman’s brow game is strong so don’t be afraid to really go for it.

    Step 2:

    Now really define your cheekbones with a contouring powder. Wonder Woman has sharply-defined facial features so really chisel your cheeks out!

    Step 3:

    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Apply a bright highlighting powder to the tops of your cheekbones.

    Step 4:

    Classic Wonder Woman makeup tutorial: Step 4
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Use your contour shade to add some depth to your crease. The rest of your lid can remain bare.

    Step 5:

    Classic Wonder Woman makeup tutorial: Step 5
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Create a fairly thick line across your top lash line with black liquid liner. Wing it out at the outer edge for optimal fierceness. Cover Girl’s new Intensify Me! Liquid Liner works really well for this.

    Step 6:

    Classic Wonder Woman makeup tutorial: Step 6

    With a soft black kohl liner, line the inner rim on your lower lid.

    Step 7:

    Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes.

    Step 8:

    Line lips with a berry/red-toned liner.

    Step 9:

    Classic Wonder Woman makeup tutorial: Step 9
    Image: Ivy Boyd/Sheknows

    Fill lips in with a bright, bold orange red. L’Oreal’s British Red is one of my all-time faves. I feel like a superhero just wearing it alone!

    Step 11:

    Add some volumizing powder and/or back combing to amp up your hair. I suspect Wonder Woman was hiding some of her superpowers up in that head of hair!

    For example, my fiancé and I are huge Twin Peaks fans, and are thus creating a Detective Cooper and Audrey look for All Hallows Eve. However, while I love that show emphatically, I definitely wouldn't want to dress and act like Audrey for the rest of my life.

    But maybe that's just because I'm not as dedicated to her as Anastasia Reskoss, 20, and Quentin Dehar, 23, are to Barbie and Ken. So far, they've had 15 surgeries between them to look just like their favorite plastic couple. They're even planning to legally change their names to Barbie and Ken. Now that's what I call dedication to a couple costume!

    Reskoss and Dehar already seemed to have Barbie dream lives when they met back in 2013 at a boat party in Saint Tropez. But according to Dehar, the dream wasn't complete until they found each other (and got gobs of plastic surgery, of course). He told the Daily Mail, "It was so straightforward. We both knew we had met a partner who was going to enable us to become the Ken and Barbie we had always dreamed of being." Anyone else feeling particularly icky right now?

    They (or really, their parents) have already spent over $300,000 on surgeries to look like their Barbie counterparts. Reskoss says her obsession started as a little girl when she had over 100 Barbies. Dehar also had all the "Ken accessories" and loves his "billionaire lifestyle."

    More16-year-old human Barbie claims she's had no plastic surgery (VIDEO)

    Reskoss got her first plastic surgery at the tender age of 17 — a nose job, which was paid for by her parents. The very next year, she had surgery to take her boobs from a C to an E. She told the Daily Mail, "I felt so much better after my first nose job and boob job — it was like having armor." She claims her parents were very happy about her nose job, but said they were not pleased with her decision to get new boobs. However, that didn't stop them from continuing to enable her newfound plastic surgery addiction.

    She said, "At the end of the day, my parents would rather have a teenage daughter who takes care of her appearance than one who takes drugs."

    Once Reskoss and Dehar realized their dreams were the same, they got serious about their transformations. Aside from the expensive plastic surgery procedures, they pushed each other into strict diet and workout regiments. They also claim they no longer drink alcohol, smoke or do drugs.

    Now, they've each had second nose jobs, countless fillers and botox injections and Reskoss has taken her size E breasts to GGs. She claims, "We complement each other. He's made me a better person and he's my best friend."

    Well, if by "better person" she means mostly plastic on the inside and out, then I'd have to agree.

    Is one ad more offensive than the other? Both seem pretty innocuous in the grand scheme of advertising, but the NYC Metro Transit Authority apparently says that tangerines and oranges are OK, but eggs and grapefruits are not.

    Thinx ads

    At least, that's according to Thinx CEO Miki Agrawal. The CEO of the company that sells panties meant to replace tampons and pads said that the MTA told her she had to take a series of ads down after complaints.

    The ads that blanket the Bedford Avenue station in Brooklyn feature women wearing full black underwear with tanks and turtlenecks alongside images of the runny yolks and peeled grapefruits. Meanwhile, another ad campaign for breast augmentation shows a frowning woman holding tangerines up to her chest, along with a happy woman holding up oranges. The eggs and grapefruits were too suggestive, the MTA said.

    Double standard? Agrawal thinks so.

    "We said, "Excuse you?" You allow breast augmentation ads where they show little oranges as an OK ad to show? We have a grapefruit in a more subtle way and you're saying that is suggestive," she told am New York. "That's absolutely not OK."

    Are Thinx's ads too suggestive? Not any more than the breast implant ads.

    "Our ads are absolutely not as racy or lewd,” Agrawal told the New York Daily News. The other ads, she said, are “significantly more sexualized and sexist, basically.”

    I'm not a huge fan of 90-degree days, but at the very least, my combination skin has an easier time figuring out how to cope with the heat. The same can't be said for winter, a time when our poor skin is stripped of all moisture and has to be as tough as nails to withstand the peeling, flaking, chapped, blotchy effects of cold winds and bitter temperatures. If you remain loyal to the same skin care products year-round, it says a lot about your true-blue character, but your skin may suffer as a result. As the climate changes, so should the steps we take to protect our skin and keep it healthy and hydrated.

    After speaking with experts, including Rachel Jo Silver, social media director at Birchbox, we discovered nine intensely moisturizing and effective cleansers, serums, moisturizers and exfoliants that you can use now to get your skin winter-ready — because it's never too early to prepare.

    1. Youth To The People Cleanser

    What could be better (or more gentle) than a cleanser that's yummy enough to eat (but, please, don't actually do this). This moisturizing foaming cleanser is loaded with superfoods like kale, green tea and spinach. "It's gentle and non-drying, but also super effective — it's cold pressed (like the juice!) and 100 percent vegan which I love," Silver says. (Birchbox, $36)

    2. Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum

    This highly concentrated formula is packed with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to plump up skin and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. "All of Tata Harper's products are completely natural and still smell divine," Silver says. "This serum is actually more like a face oil: It locks in moisture and sets a nice dewy foundation for skin so you can still have a glow even in the winter." (Birchbox, $95)

    3. IPKN Pore Apple Sun Cream

    Number one rule to keep in mind, even when there is frost on your windowpane? Do not neglect to apply sunscreen each day, even when it seems utterly ridiculous — the sun doesn't take a vacation from damaging your skin in the wintertime. Count this SPF 40+ formula as one of the many cool, hip skin care miracles to emerge from Korea — and this cream knows how to multitask. "This is a moisturizer, SPF, makeup base and amazing for acne-prone skin because it minimizes sebum production — plus it's color correcting," Silver says.  (Birchbox, $28)

    4. dr brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

    Slough all those dead winter skin cells away to reveal fresher, healthier skin with the help of this gentle exfoliant, which uses jojoba oil, aloe vera and chamomile to prevent irritation. "This is my favorite facial scrub, but really you can't use it every day — it's too strong," Silver says. "It buffs away dead, dry skin and leaves my face super clean and super soft."  (Birchbox, $78)

    5. Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum

    Acne-prone skin doesn't take a rest just because there's a chill in the air. This organic, fruit acid-based serum can be used as soon as you feel a nasty pimple coming on or as a spot treatment for the nasty pimple you already have. It dries out your acne, but spares the rest of your face. (Birchbox, $29)

    6. Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme

    If the goal when temps drop is to find the most hydrating creams that won't leave your face a sticky mess, this one wins points for containing micro-drops of water that instantly absorb into the skin upon application. Other good-for-you ingredients include natural extracts of black bamboo, sunflower and barley. "This stuff feels like heaven," Silver says. "I put it between my hands and just smooth one heavy layer over my serum. It locks it in so my skin stays super hydrated while the serum treats breakouts overnight." (Birchbox, $50)

    7. Captain Blankenship’s Anchor Hand & Lip Balm

    Prevention is key when it comes to protecting our delicate hands and lips from the cold. This hand and lip balm, which contains nourishing organic shea butter and organic almond oil, is easily absorbed by the skin and leaves it feeling like silk. Organic lavender, rose geranium and tangerine essential oils create a fresh and floral scent that will promote feelings of peace and serenity... even while you're shoveling snow. (Captain Blankenship, $20)

    8. Meow Meow Tweet’s Repair Balm

    The killer secret ingredients in this balm are myrrh, vetiver and chamomile, which repair chapped dry skin anywhere on your body, from your hands to your feet. Organic shea butter, organic sesame oil and wild crafted candelilla wax create a creamy consistency that quickly absorbs into the skin, making this an ideal balm to use on dry knees or elbows.  (Meow Meow Tweet, $18)

    9. FIG+YARROW’s Healing Salve

    With shea butter, tamanu, borage, rosehips, sea buckthorn and jojoba oils, this is called a "healing" salve because it doesn't simply coat dry skin, it goes deep to repair, nourish, soothe and hydrate it. Keep one at work and one at home to immediately solve dry hand or lip problems before they have a chance to intensify. (Fig + Yarrow, $20)

    Long before the #KylieJennerChallenge, pretty, pouty, puffy lips have been in vogue. Full lips showcase gorgeous lip color, but they're also a sign of health and fertility — one men apparently lust after just as much as women. In this day and age of quick lunchtime surgical procedures, all women (well, all women who possess a generous beauty budget) can walk into a doctor's office and, thanks to a variety of lip fillers, walk out with Kylie Jenner-like lips.

    But just because they can do it, doesn't mean all women want to plump their lips with collagen or hyaluronic acid. Some crave the good old days when you could weave a few magical makeup tricks and then erase all evidence of your temporary painted face with a bit of soap and water. Grab your favorite lip liner and photo of Angelina Jolie (for inspiration) and prepare to create the pillowy lips of your dreams.

    1. Exfoliate lips

    Use either a sugar scrub, washcloth or a toothbrush. If lips are very dry, apply a good balm for five minutes and then remove.

    2. Apply either a concealer, lip plumper or primer

    Try Benefit's Lip Plump (Benefit Cosmetics, $22). And after apply the lip color, "The trick is to put a dab of gloss in the same color as the lipstick on top of the lipstick," says JoJo Gutfarb from Bella Sante Spa in Boston.

    3. Use a lip liner that is darker than your lipstick

    "Draw a line above your natural lip line to increase the size of your lips," says Beauty Vlogger Ashley Chennel. "Bright, bold colors also give the illusion of larger lips as well."

    4. Try contouring your lips

    Similar to how you would contour your face — using your lip liner and lipstick. "Apply the darker color in the creases on your lips and blend it into the lipstick as well as over line your lips with the same color [as your lips]," Chennel says.

    If lips are really thin, create the appearance of a fuller lip by putting a dot of a lighter color in the center of the bottom lip.

    5. Highlight the Cupid's bow

    Targeting the area above your lips where the lip line has a dip in it, use a highlighter pen of lighter concealer to accentuate your lips.

    6. Try a colorless lip definer

    If a darker lipliner gives you '90s flashbacks and you're not prepared to go there again, consider a colorless liner. "Since it is colorless you can slightly over draw your natural shape, which will give the appearance of a larger, more plump lip," says Makeup artist Liz Evenson from Pyara Aveda. One to try: Aveda's Nourish-Mint Lip Definer (Aveda, $20), which has natural ingredients like peptide technology, organic jojoba and spearmint to plump up lips and smooth fine lines, Evenson says.

    9. Apply a lip-plumping gloss

    Opt for a product that does double-duty by giving your lips a boost of color and hydrating and plumping them. Aveda's Nourish-Mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze comes in 15 bright and neutral shades and uses peptide technology to plump lips by an average of 13 percent, Evenson says (Aveda, $18). Another lip plumper that is all the rage among makeup artists? Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme (Too Faced, $28), a clear gloss and serum that can be used during the day or at night to boost collagen and moisturize lips.

    Lilly is a beautiful actress (most famous for her role on Lost) and yes, much of her fame is based on her looks. But she is also a mother. She has a 4-year-old son, Kahekili, with her partner Norman Kali. And now she has the second baby, too. She has been notoriously publicity shy about her kids and now, it is easy to see why.

    Because it would be really great if we could get past the notion that any woman who dares to wear a bathing suit post baby (or ever, really) is "flaunting" her body. Sometimes they are just wearing a bathing suit. Sometimes (gasp!) they might just want to swim.

    The truth is, this happens to every woman and every actress all the time. And it's high time it stopped. As women, we already feel scrutinized and analyzed when we are in our bathing suits. Believe me, I know every flaw. I know the places I could use some "work" and I know I don't feel comfortable in a bathing suit at my community pool because it always feels like a balancing act between looking too weirdly conservative and prudish or, alternatively, being accused of "flaunting" something. All we really want to do is go to the pool, for goodness sake.

    More: Why white tattoos are a terrible idea

    Luckily, I am not a celebrity. So I can only imagine how Lilly and all other women feel. The post-baby body is strange and confusing. Nothing is where it was before and every woman feels a little self-conscious whether she is famous or not. For an actress, it is that much worse. Yes, Lilly looks amazing, but that is really beside the point. The point is she just pushed a baby out. Her body just did an amazing thing and is now recovering. It is normal to not have super-tight abs and be soft in places that were not before. It is fine.

    Even so, we feel self-conscious about it. Every woman does. It takes enormous courage to put on that bathing suit again. No one is "flaunting" anything. Most of the time, we are just trying to enjoy our time with our family and get used to the bodies that have been altered so drastically.

    Magazines need to get past this stuff. Congratulations to Lilly on the birth of her child. She is a strong woman who has so much to look forward to with her family. Seeing her happy on the beach is empowering and great. How she looks is completely secondary. The only thing she is flaunting is her radiant happiness.

    I have looks for both the home and office, and I even threw in a maternity piece or two just to make sure I had everyone and everything covered.

    Another one of my favorite things about my plaid obsession is that it's easy to find a variety of different looks at different price ranges. Plaid fits into every budget, and we all know the importance of saving a coin here and there!

    Plaid patterns provide a very classic and put-together look so the best thing you can do when rocking this is to ooze confidence and own it! You've won me over already!

    Created by Miss Pop, a nail art guru based in NYC who has worked her magic at Fashion Week and for publications like Marie Claire and NYLON, this cute, cute, cute (yes, three cutes) nail design will go perfectly with our hit DIY Minions Halloween costume or on its own just freaking because.

    At first glance, it may look really hard to recreate yourself, but watch the video as she breaks down each step and you'll see how simple it actually is.

    But it's not exactly like Jenner started the whole thing. Savvy Instagrammers have been posting photos of the trend for months now.

    And for good reason. The tattoos come in a variety of styles — ranging from headband-like to larger image-like designs — and colors and are as simple to apply as a temporary tattoo on your skin.

    You simply put the tattoo strip design-side down on your hair and blot with dampened cotton ball. Then, just remove the paper and admire your new hair.

    Removing is as simple as washing your hair, so you can switch up the look several times a week.

    They're pretty cheap, too. Scunci sells some for $5 at Ulta, but some companies on Instagram are offering customized hair tattoos. We're not sure if there are limitations on how customized these designs can be, but the potential is pretty exciting.

    The only downside is that the designs seem to show up best on straight hair, so curly-haired gals have to break out the flat iron before trying the hair tattoo trend.

    But it's worth it, judging from all the beautiful women (and men!) rocking the look.

    In her video, Marie Lopez applied a concoction of "products we all have in our cupboard, in our fridge," like chocolate, cinnamon and banana to her face, a recipe that she claimed will help "regenerate and purify" the skin.

    But it's having some bad side effects, according to some fans.

    "Certainly I have soft skin, but my cheeks are burning and dry as straw," one fan wrote on her Facebook page, while another added that "cinnamon is dermocaustic and causes severe burns, and given the amount you put in, I think everyone will look like brownies after 3 or 4 applications."

    Dermatologist Dr. Doris Day recommends that people stay away from putting cinnamon on their faces. "I think that would be irritating," she told CNN. "You wouldn't get enough of a concentration of cinnamon, and you can probably even get blisters," she said. "It's a spice. If you put pepper on your skin, you can burn your skin."

    But instead of being apologetic, Lopez fired back and put the blame on her fans.

    "It’s obvious you should test a mask on your skin before applying it fully. If you feel it burning, don’t you remove it? Have a little common sense!" she wrote on Facebook, translated into English, adding, "File a complaint, go ahead. These recipes are as old as the world and in books of grandma recipes."

    "Reminder: I am 20 years old."

    Probably not, and that's a problem.

    "Parents are totally clueless as to what they’re putting on their child’s face. If they see it on the shelf, they think it’s safe, but it’s not," New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said recently. "When you buy makeup for your kids, make sure it doesn’t say 'made in China.'"

    That goes for the makeup you buy, too. Schumer pointed to costume makeup from Rubie’s Costume Company, Wet N’ Wild Fantasy Makers and Fun World as examples of makeup made in China listed as "hypoallergenic," "skin friendly" and "non-toxic" but actually containing skin-irritating or even toxic ingredients like chromium, nickel, cobalt — and even lead.

    The problem is that there is very little regulation when it comes to cosmetic products. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics released a report recently that recommended the FDA "require that raw materials be tested for purity, that ingredients in cosmetics be shown to be safe for children and other vulnerable populations, and that all chemical constituents in personal-care products, including fragrance ingredients and contaminants, be listed on ingredient labels."

    But that won't help for this Halloween. So, what should you look for? Makeup that doesn't contain any ingredients not recommended by the FDA.

    "As with any unfamiliar makeup, you'll always want to perform a patch test on your neck or the underside of your arm to make sure you won't have a negative reaction," Joel Schlessinger, a board-certified dermatologist, told The Huffington Post. "If you see signs of irritation, avoid putting the makeup on your face. Don't hesitate to see a doctor if the costume makeup gives your skin an itchy or blistering rash."
