Ashley Rosales wasn’t a natural-born makeup artist.
“I was about 15 when my parents let me start wearing makeup. I wasn’t great at it,” the beauty blogger says in the current issue of People.
But by age 18, the Cincinnati native had fallen in love with the art of cosmetics, though she chose a different route after high school.
“My dad was in the Marines before I was born, and he always talked about it,” says Rosales, now 30. “He was so honored that he served. I wanted to make him proud.”
For 2 1/2 years she was stationed at Fort Riley in »

Presided by Kirk D’Amico, Myriad will introduce “Shadow Girl” to buyers at the Cannes Film Market which kicked off yesterday.
Targeting a still underserved Ya and adult female audience which has made a large hit of such titles as “Me Before You,” “Shadow Girl,” marks a move towards the mainstream for Claudia Myers who broke through to attention with “Fort Bliss” – a “solid, affecting drama,” Variety said.
Billed as a magical love story and from an original screenplay by Myers which also has coming of age elements, “Shadow Girl” stars Mamet as a girl, Holly, who has literally faded with the death of her mother until near invisible – until she meets Shane, a disgraced Mma champ, who can make her out. But Holly discovers she bears more responsibility than she imagined for Shane »

Claudia Myers (Fort Bliss) will direct from a screenplay she wrote. The story centers on Holly, who has faded to the point of becoming literally invisible after the death of her mother. After more than a decade of solitude and toiling in the shadows as a paparazzi photographer, she meets Shane (Speedman), a down-on-his-luck former mixed martial arts champion and the one person who can see her.

The subject matter of Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg’s new film Patriots Day might be even tougher to some as their last film, Deepwater Horizon, as it looks at the terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 that left three dead and dozens injured.
In the movie, Wahlberg plays police officer Tommy Saunders, who is on duty at the marathon on the day of the bombing, so he’s on the forefront of the investigation to find those responsible. His wife Carol is played by Michelle Monaghan, who has given breakout performances in films like Shane Black’s Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Ben Affleck’s Gone Baby Gone, Duncan Jones’ Source Code, as well as the acclaimed first season of HBO’s True Detective, and she brings more humanity to the movie which ends up following the FBI and Boston Pd as they go after the perps.
