'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The team unveiled buttoned-up, refined uniforms designed by Ralph Lauren on Tuesday for the opening ceremony at the London Olympics. Men will wear navy-blue blazers with the Olympic team patch, along with a red-and-navy tie and cream-colored flat-front pants. Women will pair the blazers with scarves with red, white and blue stripes and a knee-length cream-colored skirt.

All the team members will top off their uniforms with navy berets highlighted with red and white stripes. The marketing folks can only hope these berets go over as well as they did in 2002, when the U.S. team wore powder-blue berets at the Winter Olympics that became instant hits and quickly sold out.

Ultimate beauty guide

A new book, "The Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas for You" (Running Press; $19.95), is packed with clear, customized information. Each chapter offers detailed how-tos, inspiration and advice from Ann Shoket and the editors of Seventeen - plus exclusive tips from the Beauty Smarties, the magazine's real-girl beauty experts. Young women can celebrate their individual style with five makeup themes:

Girly: Mixes sweet and romantic with refined touches for pop and polish

Glam: Makeup that's dazzling and dramatic

Classic: Timeless beauty with a modern twist

Edgy: Strong, daring and undeniably cool

Boho: Natural and earthy but way beyond neutrals

I Made It!

The I Made It! Market, the city's nomadic indie-craft marketplace, will pop into action from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday for the SouthSide Works "Exposed" Artists Market. Seventy regional artists will offer handmade items including jewelry, hand-dyed clothing and accessories, children's clothing, housewares, ceramics, handbags and bath and body products. Details:

Surfing the crimson tide

You can do red lips, says InStyle magazine. It's surprisingly easy to master the look. Beauty director Amy Synnott-D'Annibale lists the reasons she loves this look:

It's a serious outfit maker: Like the perfect leopard-print stiletto, an amazing red lipstick can transform even the most basic black dress into something startlingly chic.

It can brighten your smile: The key to making your teeth look whiter? Choose a blue-based red, like MAC's Ruby Woo. The cool undertones in these hues tend to neutralize any yellowness on your teeth.

It forces you to eat like a lady: When was the last time you saw someone with a precise ruby pout biting into a pepperoni calzone? To keep this high-maintenance lip intact, you'll need to practice zen-like restraint around greasy food.

Menswear mastery

Lucky magazine offers advice to master the menswear trend:

Make it messy: Little touches - a half-tucked shirt, pushed up-sleeves, peeking out hems - take the formality out of tailored, slim-fitting pieces.

Ditch the socks and cuff: Flashes of ankle are as sexy as a pair of stilettos.

Strap on a big watch: An oversize style makes your wrist look incredibly dainty.

Tie it ascot style: Seriously, your preppiest silk scarf will look cooler than you ever thought it could.

Carry a briefcase-like bag: It has all the gravitas of an attaché and the hip sophistication of an It Bag.
