2. Everything counts, but less is more

Fans with cell phones equipped with still and video cameras now outnumber the paparazzi. As a result, celebrities want to look good from head to toe in their every day, natural state. In addition, the former popularity of extreme-measure face lifts and other surgical treatments has caused studios to contractually obligate actors to refrain from anything that might drastically alter their look.

Global News

CALGARY- School may be out for the summer, but some Calgary kids headed back to the classroom on Monday to meet a country music superstar.

Shania Twain is in town ahead of two Calgary Stampede concerts later this week, and took the chance to kick off a new program at Catherine Nichols Gunn School.

In my opinion, Jessica has one of the most radiant complexions in Hollywood. Her skin literally glows. Although she does like to play up her eyes with dark makeup, she never has to wear much foundation to cover any blemishes or imperfections. Her skin always looks hydrated and fresh.

Celebrating more than 15 years of making a difference for animals, the Petco Foundation will honor Hilary Swank for her work in animal rescue and commitment to animal advocacy.

Swank will receive Petco Foundation’s Hope Award at its sixth annual Hope Gala on May 3 in San Diego. The annual award celebrates the spirit of hope through a life dedicated to promoting the human-animal bond. Past recipients include Ellen DeGeneres, Betty White and Lily Tomlin.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as an advocate for animals by such a respected organization as the Petco Foundation,” said Ms. Swank. “They work tirelessly every single day on behalf of animals and have such a far-reaching impact through their extraordinary efforts. This Hope Award is a reminder that we all need to individually come together in order to collectively bring hope and make a difference for animals, animal welfare and animal rights. For even one person’s vision and efforts today can have a lasting impact that will make a difference in the lives of these souls for many tomorrows.”
