Make Up For Ever Smoky Couleur Fall 2011

I’m a girl all about the eye makeup. This is why I’m super excited about the latest launch from Make Up For Ever.  I got to try the NEW Smoky Lash Couleur in # 3 deep brown and NEW Khol Pencil #9k a matte mocha brown. The mascara makes my lashes instantly bold, long, and volume-full. The eye pencil is soft and makes it easy to draw a line thin or more smoky without pulling on the skin. It’s easy to blend. The shade is blackened-brown a nice break from black with a little bit of a softer effect.

Tip #1: Prep Your Skin

It’s important to prep your skin a few days before a big event. In addition to drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet, the key to glowing skin is following a strict skincare regimen. For pre-event prep, try the Olay Professional Pro-X Intensive Firming Treatment ($62) – this two step kit combines a hydrating mask and tightening serum. Packed with an effective blend of anti-aging ingredients, it works to firm skin by helping restore its natural fullness, elasticity and tension. In just five days skin looks significantly younger and firmer!

Lancôme & Chris Benz Go Gothic Chic for Fall 2010

New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2010: Seattle native and downtown New York denizen Chris Benz saw all of his influences collide in a spectacular way on Monday, Febuary 15, 2010, for his Fall 2010 presentation. The collection mixes the patterns, textures and utility of clothes made for the Great Outdoors as worn by the renegade, Outward Bound Debutante.

Makeup Tutorial: Lead makeup artist Daniel Martin (who helped create the Chris & Tell shade with the designer for Spring 2010) wanted a “makeup” makeup look, so he and Chris settled on what they’re calling Gothic Chic. The eyes and the lips were given equal attention. The eyes were smoky in gradations of shimmery charcoal and chocolate. Daniel used the new Ombre Magnétique, a mousse-like cream shadow, in black, layered with Color Design Eye Shadow in Guest List, an opaque espresso shade. For the lashes, several coats of Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black, and for the eyeliner, Le Stylo Waterproof EyeLiner in Noir along the waterline, completed the look.

Top Beauty Trends At The SAG Awards

The award show season is officially upon us, which means gorgeous gowns and trendsetting beauty looks are de riguer on the red carpet. The Golden Globes set the bar pretty high, but the the Screen Actors Guild  Awards (SAG), which were held on Saturday, took the glam factor to the max. From the ladies of Nine, shown above, to the rest of Hollywood’s elite, the hairstyles and makeup effects were off the gorgeous charts. Here, our favorite trends:

Old Hollywood Glamour

They say true glamour never goes out of style and in the case of Diane Kruger, Anna Kendrick and Marion Cotillard, this couldn’t be more true. Each of these stunning stars opted for retro, old-school Hollywood vibe, which meant classic, structured updo’s, seriously smoky eyes, lots of lashes and a strong lip look. We think Diane stole the show with her creamy red lip, porcelain skin and sleek hairstyle, but bright-eyed newcomer Anna and French siren Marion were also red carpet standouts with their bold, colorful eyeshadow and side-parted ‘dos.

NARS Everlasting Love 15 Year Anniversary Palette

What I like about NARS Everlasting Love 15 Year Anniversary Palette ($75)  is that it includes most of the makeup I need to complete my makeup look day or night. I can travel with it and it keeps my makeup area clutter free. My favorite items from the palette: The Multiple in South Beach is a creamy blush/bronzer that gives me a gorgeous sun-kissed glow (shimmering apricot), Eyeshadow in Night Breed is a dramatic black eye shadow that will smoke your eyes in an instant (black with silver glitter), Eyeshadow in Edie for highlighting (delicate pearl sheen), and the Lipstick in Chelsea Girls (nude pink beige) if you love NARS lip gloss in Turkish Delight you will also love this one.

The NARS 15 Year Anniversary Palette, Everlasting Love, delivers an elegant look that focuses on dramatic, smoky shades for the eye, a subtle glow for the cheeks, and soft, neutral lips. The compact features a specialized logo treatment in celebration of NARS’ big birthday.

Scarlett Johansson in Mango Ads

Love Scarlett Johansson’s trench coat dress in her latest Mango ads. I also approve Scarlett’s voluminous waves and and smoky eyes. However, Scarlett’s stare is little lifeless and makes her look like a mannequin. Pretty but cold. Do you love?
