Yesterday afternoon, pop superstar and American Idol winner Kris Allen came to Robert Frost Middle School in Los Angeles to kick off Starburst's Music With The Masters Series; which benefits the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. The first of three events held in various cities over the coming months included Allen performing his hit single "Live Like We're Dying" with the school band and walking them on a tour through his musical history.
The presentation also featured Allen covering some of his favorite songs throughout time (including Coolio's "Gangstas Paradise" and to "keep the crowds interested," "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears). He capped the presentation by performing his new hit "The Vision of Love." To top off the event, in conjunction with Starburst, he donated the piano used in both music video and his performance to the school. Overall, the event served as a great kick off to the series in conjunction with which Starburst is donated $250k to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
New face, skin, and season equals overhauling your collection of makeup and tools. We've got great tips and tricks for you from trustworthy make up artists, who've also recommended the following fun and affordable products to get your hands on. So let's begin. It's important to remember when you purchased your current makeup and brush collection, how long ago was it?
Usually, for powder and liquid foundation make up should be able to last between 6 months to 1 year of regular use. During this time your brushes should be cleaned once a week with a gentle soap (preferably non-fragranced soap to ensure zero chance of future breakouts), squeezed (not twisted, watch the bristles!), and laid flat out to dry for a few hours. As for your eye shadows, liquid or powder can last the same time as foundation. The time periods described all depend on the cleanliness and upkeep of your make up in general.

Legend has it that the Green Children of Woolpit first appeared in the small village of Suffolk, England, around the 12th century. The children, a brother and sister duo, from a place called St Martin’s Land; were legendarily known for their green skin, enchanting ethereal language, terrestrial clothing and incessant love of green beans. These bewitching children were found just outside a barn and were unable to account for their arrival. The locals of Woolpit took in the enigmatic pair and the children eventually adapted to the normalcy of being human. The twosome went on to learn English, lose their mesmeric green skin tone and began eating normal food. The legend of The Green Children becomes less than enchanting and far more mundane after that.
