forever+21+hairband+elastic+ball Get A Handle On Your Hair Elastics

Last week, BellaSugar recommended this Fab Hairband Elastic Ball from Forever 21, for you gals who have major probs keeping track of your hair elastics. At $3.50, it’s definitely a cheap and chic way to stay organized. But here’s my tip (and it’s free)…

You know that mini hairbrush that lives in the bottom of your handbag? Wrap, like, 10 hair elastics around the handle; you’ll never be caught in a bad hair situation, without a way to reign in your mane.

Kim Kardashian’s Old Hollywood Makeup Look, Created by Troy Jensen

When Dior Beauty invited Troy Jensen to their first annual Christian Dior Beauty Lunch benefiting Operation Smile, he invited his favorite muse, Kim Kardashian. On his blog, Troy dishes about his inspiration for Kim’s makeup look – and how he pulled it all off.

“I sent Kim a collage of images of Ava Gardner as inspiration for the look i created. I wanted to create a look that was old Hollywood glam with a touch of a modern chic. I first prepped Kim’s skin with an eye cream and moistureizer, then blended a concealer under the eyes, forehead, down the center of the nose and blended well into her skin. I then applied a liquid foundation to give a subtle golden glow. I set with a finishing powder and dusted a Rose Pink powder blush to the apples of her cheeks. I applied a bronzer to the outer perimeter of temples, down her cheek bones, and jaw line. The bronzer was a golden tan with a subtle shimmer. When I’m creating a flawless complexion on Kim, I feel she looks stunning with a little natural gleam to the skin. For the eyes I wanted to create a daytime glam. Which involved a subtle golden smokey eye, glowing complexion, and a sheer red lip. I first blended a golden bronze eyeshadow onto the entire eyelid using a matte bone color in the arch of the brow. I then lined her entire eye with a chocolate brown eyeliner, curled and coated her lashes and added a few individual eyelashes to just the ends of her eyes for an old Hollywood flare. I topped the look off with defining her lips with a neutral lip color and filled in her entire lip with a sheer Cherry red lip gloss. This look is sexy, Its fresh, Its glamorous, and perfect for the alluring Kim Kardashian.”

mac+nail+lacquer O My Goodness: Coolest Trick With MACs Style Warrior Nail Lacquers!

Today, I stopped by the Bloomie’s MAC counter at the Willow Grove Mall to pick up a few necessities (MAC Clear Lipglass and Nail Lacquer in Peaceable).

While I was there, my girl Hope showed me the coolest trick with the new Style Warrior Nail Lacquers. Paint on a layer of Violet Fire, then let dry. Then apply a layer of Mercenary.

When it’s all said and done, it looks almost identical to one of my fave MAC lipsticks, O.

Please pardon my raggedy cuticles and sloppy paint job. But trust me, it’s gorge in person.

For last month’s Maxim Hot 100 party, Kim Kardashian rocked gorge emerald eyes. On his blog, Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, posts about the products he used to create the look.

He writes:

Hey guys… For the Maxim Hot 100 event, Kim wore an all while dress and the hair was pulled back so I definitely wanted to use a little bit of color on her eyes and green is my favorite color. I really like how this look came out on her and it photographed beautifully. When using a color on the eyes, keep the cheeks and lips soft and pretty. Here’s how to get the face…

Skin – Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation by Make Up For Ever in Neutral Beige. GIELLA concealer in #2. Set the face and under the eyes with Make Up For Ever HD translucent powder.

Eyes – Golden Olive Pigment by MAC on lids. Humid Eye Shadow by MAC in the crease and blended on the lower lashline. Electric Edge Liquid Eyeliner Marker Pen by Calvin Klein in Electric Black on the upper lid and winged out a little on the outer corner. GIELLA Dazzle Eye Pencil on the inner corners (tear ducts) and on the inner rim of the eye. Two coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black, top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks – Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Call Me on the apples of the cheeks. Apply Summer Affair Bronzing Powder by Calvin Klein framing the face lightly.

Lips – No lip liner. Just a clear gloss 😉 Let me know how it comes out if you try it!

Bumpy Ride: A Long Journey To Rid My Legs Of Hair Bumps

woman shaving legs razor Bumpy Ride: A Long Journey To Rid My Legs Of Hair BumpsSince I hit puberty, I’ve been cursed with hair bumps on my legs. Because the hair on my legs is coarse and grows in a curly pattern, sometimes as the hair grows out, it curls back under the skin into the same follicle. And because the hair is trapped under the skin, even after I shave, I still have many unsightly ingrown hairs.

The condition isn’t physically painful, like razor bumps; but it is emotionally painful, as I’ve spent many years hiding this condition beneath long skirts and pants – even during the dog days of summer.

For half of my life, I’ve had a serious case of leg envy. Every time I see a woman with silky smooth gams, I selfishly hope that she silently suffers from stretch marks, bacne or some other embarrassing ailment that isn’t apparently obvious. It just isn’t fair!

I’ve tried a million and one products and techniques to solve the problem…and while I’ve yet to discover a panacea, I have found a temporary solution.   (more…)
