Drew Barrymore’s new blonde haie may have you wondering if it’s time for you to release your inner Hollywood blonde.

How to go blonde
“If your natural hair color is a dark to medium brown, a double process service is the only way to achieve perfect results,” reveals Zucckero. “It is a bit more costly and time consuming but the end result can range from the softest butter cream or honey to true jaw dropping platinum. Remember that true platinum is a very cool, almost silver-blue with no hint of warm undertones.”

Celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson and celebrity hairstylist Anthony Campbell worked with Jessica Biel for the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 in New York, NY. TM has the details on Jessica’s sexy, smoky look.
“Jessica has beautiful skin and stunning green eyes that I wanted to play up. I thought giving her a sexy sultry warm brown smoky eye would look great with her Tom Ford dress.

INSPIRATION: “We wanted a really simple, chic blow out. Kim’s been trying to grow her bangs out, so I created a deep part to pull the bangs to the side. We kept the blowout sleek with a little bit of texture.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “I used Living Proof Prime Style Extender while Kim’s hair was still damp so that her style would last all night. Then I blew it dry with a round brush to create the sophisticated blow out. I created a very deep part to tuck her bangs to the side. I used Hold Flexible Hairspray throughout her hair to create texture and a piecy look. I also used it to keep the bangs tucked away.”
PRODUCTS: PRIME STYLE EXTENDER ($20), HOLD FLEXIBLE HAIRSPRAY ($24)
DRESS: YVES SAINT LAURENT
RETAILERS: LIVINGPROOF.COM, SEPHORA, SEPHORA.COM, ULTA, NORDSTROM
Spring is officially here! It’s exciting to finally see more sunshine, and to, of course, look good. So here is a sample of what’s in my beauty bag to help me feel good.
For my skin, and especially the skin on my face, I love Simple Skincare products. I don’t believe you need to use fancy or expensive skincare products to keep your skin in shape and looking amazing. I like to wash my face with Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash in the shower or to help remove makeup and dirt. It feels very creamy, yet light, refreshing and super gentle to my skin. I also love the Simple Eye Make-Up Remover Pads. This one is a must-have. Just wipe and go. I seriously can’t function without these. Both products are fragrance free, which is a god sent, ha. Don’t like perfumes on my skin.
For my hair I’ve discovered U Luxury, aka United Luxury Shampoo & Conditioner – a UK brand. It smells light and very moisturizing without weighing my hair down.
