Whether it's Galen Gering or Kelly Monaco, every day we hear about new celebrities going under the knife, and new operations that we didn't even know existed.

While the most famous examples of cosmetic surgery are the ones that end in disaster, most end up just fine. You might think the star looks better, or even different, but you can't quite put your finger on why.

Soapdom says: Become the soap opera star you’ve always dreamed about! http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/soapdom-says-become-the-soap-opera-star-youve-always-dreamed-about.html http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/soapdom-says-become-the-soap-opera-star-youve-always-dreamed-about.html Nadia Bjorlin (Chole, Days of our Lives)Female soap opera stars are forever sought after by the public for their cosmetics, hairstyles and fashion sense. Like all of us in soapdom know, for some stars, taste in fashion may actually encompass three different personalities, which calls for three separate fashion styles. Picture the scenario of the "evil twin," only in real life, where the same person exemplifies a number of different personas.

For example, the main personality likes the daintier part of fashion, choosing somethng like a turquoise satin tank top and subtle accessories, including the lighter side of jewelry. Her snakeskin pumps add a hint of jazz, but her handbag is as simple as her accessories.

Go natural and in budget to look like a soap star http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/go-natural-and-in-budget-to-look-like-a-soap-star.html http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/go-natural-and-in-budget-to-look-like-a-soap-star.html Splash with natural ingredientsIn today's world, no matter how hard we try; everything we do is on a budget. We budget shop for food, clothes, shoes, cars and even health! For some people, beauty and the quest to maintain it isn't such a big deal, but being concerned about your appearance or how it is perceived is a natural part of life.

As far as budgeting goes, beauty on a budget may seem impossible. The beauty product industry grosses billions of dollars a year and this is not just in America. Commercial manufacturers have done their best to make beauty products more affordable by minimizing packaging, using alternative ingredients, and bulking up on the cheaper stuff.

Grab a spoon and get healthy for summer http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/grab-a-spoon-and-get-healthy-for-summer.html http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/grab-a-spoon-and-get-healthy-for-summer.html

Your QueenRuler and Slinky, the Tuxedo Puss

Most of the time, I sit behind a desk buried in my computer, munching on whatever I can grab fast as I create content for my online BFFs here at Soapdom.com. But with summer on the horizon, I've decided to choose my snacks more wisely – like satisfying, non-fat Dannon Oikos® yogurt.

Thanks to tips from Dannon Oikos® and nationally recognized dietician Keri Glassman, I am starting on the right track to a more healthy summer, cos we all know that exercising, and maintaining a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle can be daunting. With the right tools, however, looking like a soap star can be as easy as picking up a spoon!

This spring, Keri Glassman and Dannon Oikos® are encouraging us all to 'Grab a Spoon 'til June' with rich and creamy 0% fat Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt to help us stay on track towards our goals while at the same time adding spice to the normal routine!

Like the sound of that? Slinky and I do, too!

Here are some of Keri's tips that I'll be using to get started. See something that hits home for you? Feel free to try a few of Keri's tips, too!

Start with a Good Foundation http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/starting-with-a-good-foundation.html http://www.soapdom.com/Look-Like-a-Soap-Star/starting-with-a-good-foundation.html Norm Bryn -- Make Up Artist to the Soap Stars!Hello, and welcome to 2010! This time, I promised to tell you all about the how's, why's and wherefores of foundation, so without further ado, let's get to it.

Foundation makeup is a big part of how to "Look Like a Soap Star" as, indeed, it is the beginning of any good makeup job. The penetrating lights of a television studio make foundation an actor's best friend since, much more so than in real life, the inconsistencies of skin tones are magnified without it. Our complexions are made up of so many areas due to factors including age, ethnic background, lifestyle, and individual

As I predicted, the latest casualty is "As The World Turns," the last of the Procter & Gamble sponsored serials after "Guiding Light" broadcast its final episode in September of this year. Procter & Gamble once had as many as thirteen soaps on the air, but they will bow out of the genre once ATWT ceases production in June, 2010.
