Whitney Port’s Makeup

Whitney Port was at the Sephora Hollywood and Highland store in Los Angeles to kick off Sephora’s “Kiss for a Cause,” a three week long- initiative to benefit The Beauty Bus Foundation, a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for homebound, terminally or chronically ill people and their primary caregivers by bringing beauty into their lives. This foundation provides in-home beauty and grooming treatments, free of charge, to those who might not otherwise have access, helping them maintain dignity and giving them respite during a difficult time.

Whitney Port Helps Sephora Kiss For A Cause

During the promotion, Sephora is inviting its clients to try one of fall’s hottest trends, the bold, red lip, and donate their kiss to the in-store collage. Whitney Port was among the first to donate her kiss and add it to the growing mosaic of supporters, choosing Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #43, Moulin Rouge as her favorite shade.

NARS Single Eye Shadow in Night Breed

I just discovered a gorgeous way to get smoky eyes with NARS Single Eye Shadow in Night Breed. The shade: black with silver glitter. The black pigment is pretty strong and you can skip the black eye liner on lower lids. I also use two other eye shadows: MAC Reflects Antique Gold which is part of the MAC Glitter Brilliants collection (your eyes will sparkle like diamonds) and stila kitten eye shadow for highlighting.

I then add MAC Rapidblack Penultimate Eye Liner (a liquid eye liner) and wing out my eyes for a bit of cat eyes. And finish with MAC Studio Fix Lash mascara. The result: dramatic, sexy eyes! To complete my look I add Chris & Tell lipstick by Lancôme which is THE prefect pink coral shade. I’m addicted to Chis & Tell! Every woman should have one pretty red lipstick and one pretty pink coral lipstick such as Lancome’s version.

The Hollywood Transformation of Katharine McPhee

Katharine McPhee is definitely looking different these days. I call it “The Hollywood Transformation”. First thing you do is dye your hair blonde! Think Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, even Lindsay Lohan. Blonde seems to be the ultimate Old Hollywood glamour symbol. And I love how Katharine McPhee waves her hand to fans, very regal or very Hollywood. Even the hairdo is similar to Marilyn Monroe’s: short wavy bob parted to the side. To finish the look: add red lipstick. I approve Katharine McPhee’s new hair color. The questions is: Do you?

Do you see any similarities between Katharine McPhee and Marilyn Monroe’s hair and makeup?

Jennifer Lopez InStyle Cover September 2009

Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of InStyle September 2009 cover, which also happens to be their 15 anniversary special issue.

I absolutely love Jennifer’s makeup look and hairstyle on this cover. She can have her hair pulled up tight to her scalp and still look good. Another celebrity I can think of who can pull off  this hairstyle effortlessly is Natalie Portman.

Here is how to get Jeniffer Lopez’s inspired red lips on the cover of InStyle Magazine September 2009:

Lancome Color Fever in Rouge Magnificence, $25

Estee Lauder Double Wear Lipstick in Stay Scarlet 10, $22
