Haircare brand John Frieda is pairing with TV personality and actress Stacy Keibler (she of the lustrous, George Clooney-mesmerizing blonde locks) to raise money for HAIRraising, a charity that supports the Children’s Hospital Boston. For each viewing of the video here, where Stacy reveals how she’s using Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray to brighten her strands, John Frieda will donate $2 to the cause. An easy way to lighten up— and give back.

This week’s Staffer Beauty Snoop is a bit of a twist, as the subject is me—Jaclyn Smock, the new beauty intern for fall 2011. Read on for a peek at my primping rituals and must-haves!
Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Feminine, warm and fresh.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Physician’s Formula Mineral Correcting Powder, blush (right now I’m using Salma Hayek Nuance Blush in Apricot) and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I wash my face with Glo Therapeutics Clear Anti-Blemish Cleanser, then I moisturize with Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Moisturizer. Next, I spritz on Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish, which helps set my makeup and control my oil and shine. After I do what I call my “pre-face,” I put on Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and set it with Physicians Formula Mineral Correcting Powder. My skin is very oily so I find that tinted moisturizer works best for my complexion. After my skin tone is evened out, I apply blush, then I add a little e.l.f. Mineral Black Eye Liner on my bottom lids and finish with Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara. Once I’m done with my face, I move onto hair: I work some John Frieda Take Charge Curl Boosting Mousse through my curls, finish with a little bit of TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray, and I’m out the door. This may sound like a lot but it only takes me 15 minutes!
At night? I remove the day’s makeup with Neutrogena Night Calming Cleansing Cloths, wash my face with my cleanser, and top with moisturizer. To finish off my nightly routine, I put Physicians Formula Dark Spot Corrector and Skin Brightener all over my face. The color weirded me out at first (it’s brown) but it really does work!
Post-workout? Once I’m done working out, I head home to shower and wash my face. When I get out, I moisturize and spray Glytone Acne Back Spray on to ensure that I never get bacne!
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? Facials—I love everything about them! I have done at-home versions before, but I still prefer a pro facial. I truly believe in monthly facials, if your budget permits. Facials quickly resolve most skin concerns and you leaving feeling so refreshed!
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? Know the difference between day and night makeup. I believe in light eye makeup during the day then going dramatic at night to really look alluring.

One of the perks of being the intern de jour is that you get to try out all the latest beauty loot. With full access to the overflowing beauty closet, I’ve found a number of must-have products that I swear by. Here, I’m dishing about which are worth the splurge and which of these bargain beauty products are just as good as their high-end counterparts.
STEAL: L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
I have always lusted after thicker lashes and seem to be on a never-ending search for the best volumizing mascara. When I caught wind of a product that boasted “millionizing lashes”, I had to try it for myself. To my delight, L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara ($9) delivers exactly what is promised perfectly separated full lashes. This is a magic wand worth investing in!
SPLURGE: Givenchy Le Prisme Blush
Being a poor college student, I try to resist spending temptation, but when you love something this much it seems worth the splurge. Givenchy Le Prisme Blush ($44) is the perfect mix of colors to brighten up more than just my dull skin, but my whole day: When you look better, you feel better!
STEAL: John Frieda Root Awakening Hair Spray
After styling your hair, just a couple spritzes of John Frieda Root Awakening Non-Aerosol Hair Spray ($6.49) will keep it in place through the night. This lightweight, non-sticky spray is also enriched with vitamins that promote strong strands.
SPLURGE: Clinique Redness Solutions Targeted Corrector
This is my skin crisis go-to stick. I have tried tons of concealers, and nothing compares to this handy little wand. The yellow tint helps neutralize redness on blemishes and around your nose. Although it’s a tiny tube, a little of Clinique Redness Solutions Targeted Corrector ($19.50) goes a long way.
STEAL: Victoria’s Secret Minerals Lip Gloss in Bare
A swipe of gloss can work wonders, especially if you don’t have much time to spend on your makeup. One of my favorite finds in the beauty closet is Victoria’s Secret Minerals Lip Gloss in Bare ($10). It’s the perfect neutral hue to keep my look work-friendly yet pulled together.
