PC Beauty Tips Featured in the November Issue of Health Magazine

There’s always something so exciting about opening a magazine and seeing your name in print. In the November issue of Health Magazine (featuring Julianne Moore on the cover), the publication features beauty bloggers top tricks spanning across nails, makeup, hair and skin. Actually, to quote the header, it reads: ” Beauty Bloggers’ Best Tricks, Top online gurus share their go-to strategies for great hair, glowing skin, and magnificent makeup.”

I’m featured twice, once for my hair tip and another for a DIY skincare recommendation (as seen below photographed side by side with Michelle Phan’s tip in between!)

Lara Eurdolian, Pretty Connected beauty tips in Health Magazine

I have a little note to add to my hair tip, since the copy had to be condensed. The tip as it read is:  “I sleep with my hair divided into two loose buns, seared with a scrunch. To keep mu strands smooth. For adding volume in the mourning, I rely on Osis Dust It – the powder soaks up excess oils and adds lift to roots.”

The part that I should preface is about dividing my hair into the buns with a loose scrunchie — that’s only if you’re trying to preserve a blow-out. By putting your hair into loose divided buns rotating hair in sequence of the curl it helps you avoid friction and movement between the strands. The reason you use a scrunchie instead of a hair elastic is you don’t want anything too tight that would leave any lines. Then the next morning you can revive the roots with some dry shampoo.

My other tip was “Yogurt, the pain natural kind makes a great hydrating mask. I use it when my skin needs a little pick-me-up.”

Some of the other tips I loved from the article include:

“I love sparkly polish but it sticks to your nails like crazy. To remove it, I use felt instead of a cotton ball — it works like a gentle Brillo pad.” – Allison Kratzer, Makeup by Alli

“Instead of layering on powder before happy hour, press a few drops of face oil over your cheeks to refresh your foundation and create a super natural glow.” – Elizabeth Dehn, Beauty Bets

“If your eye and lip pencils are really soft, leave them in the fridge for about an hour before you sharpen them-the less creamy they are the less waste there is.” – Christine Miekle, Temptalia

“After I douse a cotton pad with my regular makeup remover, I add a bit of coconut oil and apply it to my closed eye. It helps break up the makeup, so it slides off with more ease.” – Julie Gutierrez, YouTube vlogger

“Rather than using a towel, dry hair with a soft, old, worn-in T-shirt and pat dry. Don’t rub! Rubbing hair with a towel leads to breakage.” – Michelle Phan

“When I have a breakout, I hold a vinegar-soaked cotton ball over it for a few seconds at night. It’s smaller by mourning.” – Aleigh Acerni, Indigo + Canary

Okay, that’a enough of a sneak peek, for more great tips check out the November issue of Health Magazine on stands now.

Live from In Touch’s Icons+Idols Party with Jenny McCarthy, NERVO, Sarah Hyland, Taryn Manning, Nick Cannon {sponsored}

Last night, live from In Touch Weekly’s Icons+Idols party I was tweeting up the red carpet like it was my job! Which of course it was, since I was fortunate enough to be the red carpet corespondent for COVERGIRL! I already posted about my outfit, now for the fun stuff of who was there and the inside scoop on the top celebs #covermoments of the day as well as their must have beauty item for the red carpet!

Jenny McCarthy has been making headlines what with recently being announced as the newest member of The View, and dating New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg. Her #covermoment was showing her son NYC for the first time and experiencing it through his eyes. Her must have red carpet product is powder — don’t want to be shiny on the red carpet.

Jenny McCartny at Icons+IdolsModern Family’s Sarah Hyland arrived in Marchesa and was super sweet! She had the same must-have product, powder as well as added lip gloss to the list.Sarah Hyland, Lara Eurdolian, VMA'sIt was so great meeting Taryn Manning, who was wearing a great mix of H&M and vintage, with some Rag and Bone jeans. Paired with a killer red lip that really competed the look, it came as no surprise her must-have beauty item — lipstick.

Taryn ManningCOVERGIRL spokeswomen, and stylish DJ duo NERVO made a fashionable entrance on the red carpet — their style is sick!!! It’s super original and they always look amazing head to toe. Sporting some COVERGIRL Flammed Out Shadow Pots and Smoochies Lip Balm, we gushed over our love for the new Flammed Out Collection!! Their #covermoment was the moment before they stepped onto the red carpet and were getting their makeup done.NERVO at In Touch's Icons+Idols eventNow my next guest is tough to say without singing his name… yes, I’m talking about Jason Derulo.

Style Mondays: Keds and Cut Offs


Lara Eurdolian,

Lara Eurdolian






Outfit #1: Sunglasses: Rag & Bone | Top: Vintage | Shorts c/o Koral Los Angeles | Shoes c/o Keds

Outfit #2: Leather Hat: Rag & Bone (one of a kind sample) | Long-sleeve Top c/o Pencey | Shorts c/o Koral Los Angeles | Shoes c/o Keds

Two summer staples: cut off jeans and Keds! After going through my millionth pair of canvas white Keds (I don’t think I’ve ever been without a pair since I was a teenager), this is the first season I’ve opted for a leather edition. And I love them! It’s the Ked’s Corsa Leather style ($50) in white and they are so comfortable and easy to style! I’ve also been on the hunt for the perfect boyfriend jeans in pants and short. So far these pair of Koral’s Los Angeles Boyfriend Shorts ($195) are the best I’ve found (still on the hunt for a pant style).  They are the ultimate in effortless (and versatile) summer fashion! Plus the messiness of the shorts helps compliment the I-have-no-time-to-deal-with-my-hair look, I will be regularly sporting in this heat wave.

PC Featured on Heaven Has Heels!

Heaven Has Heels, Lara Eurdolian

This week I was featured on Heaven Has Heels as part of an editor’s “We never leave home without…” series. My answer, sunglasses! Or to be exact, “Sunnies. I pack at least two or three pairs.” (And for the record when I was asked the question it was in reference to traveling… I don’t actually carry three pairs of sunglasses in my purse.)

PC Partners with Wantable for Makeup + Jewelry Box

I have an exciting announcement! I’ve been asked to extend my partnership with Wantable to help curate their makeup and jewelry box for this month’s June box!

Lara Eurdolian, Wantable

Wantable is a subscription service that helps you discover new jewelry and makeup brands and products for $36/month or $40 for a one time purchase. Based on your style and beauty profile, they hand pick 3-5 boutique jewelry pieces or 4-6 full-size cosmetic items and ship them to you direct. (Think Birchbox, only with Wantable you’re getting full size beauty product instead of samples and there’s also a jewelry option). Best part is the shipping is free and your purchase is 100% guaranteed. If you’re not satisfied there’s a return slip included so you can ship the items back for a full refund.

So while I have no idea what you’ll get in your box (it all depends on your profile settings, ie. if you only want lipstick, that’s all you’ll get, if you want a combination of eye and nails then that’s what you can expect… and then of course shade ranges and other details you share). Here are my picks for this month’s beauty box month! (Pssst, click HERE to enter for your chance to win some of my favorite products)

Face Stockholm, Knockout Cosmetics, Lise Watier, Susan Posnick

Knockout Nail Polish – My favorite matte nail polish line. We have a full range of shades! There’s so much you can do with matte nail polish it’s is great on it’s own or as a single nail as an accent. Also with nail art being such a huge trend this season, matte makes for a great base or fun opportunity to mix textures.

Lise Watier – One of the top prestige brands in Canada, Lise Watier has a full line of luxurious products which I’m so excited you may see some of their eye or lip gloss products in this months box. Their lip gloss lights up when you open the packaging, offering a flawless application no matter the lighting. I’ve spent a lot of time with this makeup brand and could not recommend it more.

Besame – Wantable actually introduced me to this makeup line and their red lipstick is beautiful. Gorgeous packaging, great pigment, it’s so glam!

Susan Posnick – We’re debuting her line of ColorEyeDefine this month that has an eye liner pencil on one end and self-dispensing eye shadow on the other! The eye liner is at an angled slant making for a flawless application and coupled with a complimentary eyeshadow on the other side, it’s a must-have for any makeup bag.

FACE Stockholm – one of my favorite makeup brands. Wantable is carrying a wide range of products from blush, to eyes and lips. It’s a
