Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Line Your Eyes With A Match? Spritz Hairspray On Your Face?

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips | 4 Comments

kohl+rimmed+eyes Line Your Eyes With A Match? Spritz Hairspray On Your Face?Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff dips a long, previously lit match in water and uses it to line the eye. “It’s chalky and black, so you get these amazing kohl-rimmed eyes, just like the ancient Egyptians had.”

Fekkai hairstylist Adir Abergel is known to mix a pinch of Kosher salt with a few drops of water, which he adds to leave -in conditioner. “It’ll give you the beachy waves you’ve always wanted,” he says.

And according to Fiona Stiles, celebrity and editorial makeup artist, hairspray not only holds hair in place…it also keeps makeup intact. Holding the can at arm’s length, spritz a fine mist on your finished face (close your eyes first). Makeup won’t melt, says Stiles. Test a spot first to make sure you’re not allergic, and remember to take it off before bed.

Are you tempted to try any of these beauty home remedies?

Simplest Smoky Eye: DuWop Shadowlift

Posted on by daneen in Anti-Aging, Beauty Tips, Eye Shadow | 2 Comments

duwop+shadowlift+surf Simplest Smoky Eye: DuWop ShadowliftFor the simplest smoky eye, you just need one product…DuWop Shadowlift. No brushes. No fussing. No kidding.

Just apply a small dot of Shadowlift in Surf (sheer taupe) onto the center of the eyelid. Then blend inward toward the nose, outward, and a smidge above the crease. Dab, don’t rub. And voila…a smoky eye so chic that it looks like you had help. Well, technically you did, but I won’t tell.

I’m rockin’ this look right now…and I don’t have to tell you how haute it looks. It’s just a shame that I’m wasting it sitting at my parents’ house, typing on my laptop. Anyway…

As a bonus, while you’re going about your day/night looking smokin’ hot with your simple smoky eye, Shadowlift’s anti-aging and skin perfecting ingredients are hard at work – oxygenating, nourishing and toning the delicate eyelid area.

Shadowlift’s crease-resistant formula is available in three other lovely shades: Heat (pink gold), Spirit (soft champagne) and Solé (vibrant bronze).

Available at Sephora and duwop.com.

I’ll Never Apply Blush The Same Way Again

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Blush | 2 Comments

jillian+dempsey Ill Never Apply Blush The Same Way AgainJillian Dempsey is a smart cookie. She’s the lucky lass who took McDreamy off the market. So when Jillian, a makeup artist and Global Creative Color Director for Avon, shared her tips for choosing and applying blush…you best believe I’m taking copious notes.

“When I’m working on a client, I smile so she’ll smile, which accentuates the best part of the cheeks to apply blush. I put the the highest concentration of color just outside of the fattest part of the cheeks – not directly under the eyes. You don’t want that flush of color to be too close to the nose or the temples because that screams ‘too much blush.’”

Since reading Jillian’s advice in November’s issue of Allure, I have been applying my blush exactly as she recommends. And I have to say that I am amazed at the difference a few millimeters can make. For the first time in what I fear is too long, I actually look like I’m blushing.

Is There A Correct Order For Applying Hair Products?

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Hair | 1 Comment

You shampoo your hair. Then you apply a mis-mash of conditioner and styling products in an attempt to tame your mane. But is there a correct order for applying hair products post-shampoo? O, The Oprah Magazine’s beauty director, Valerie Monroe, sets the record straight.

valerie+monroe Is There A Correct Order For Applying Hair Products?Yes, that’s a good idea, says Eva Scrivo, owner of the eponymous salon in New York City, because each product has a different function.

After you shampoo, start with a conditioner or detangler to coat the hair so that the styling products you use next will be evenly absorbed. Follow that, if you like, with a mousse, styling gel, or styling lotion, which you should comb through your hair for even distribution, to increase the product’s effectiveness. (Combing through ensures that the stuff covers the whole strand instead of just lying on top of it, so you get more volume or moisture saturation or whatever it is you’re going for.) Finally, if your hair is frizzy or hard to control, work a silicone-based smoothing product through the ends before you blow-dry. After you’ve done your styling, you can use a spray for shine and hold, or, if you want a piecey look, try a texturizing wax.

Bottom Line: The magic formula is condition, style, then hold.

Kim Kardashian’s Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Kim Kardashian, Video | Leave a comment

Kim+Kardashian Kim Kardashians Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!
I know that you Kim Kardashian fans have been anxiously waiting for the finale of her “Smokey Eye” video tutorial. Today, Kim and her makeup artist, Stephen Moleski, show us how to finish the look with lush lashes and kissable lips.

* Stephen recommends fake eyelashes with a clear base, because they’re more pliable.

* Cut fake lashes to desired length.

* Apply Duo Surgical Adhesive to fake lash strip and let dry until adhesive gets tacky.

* While looking down, slip on lash strip – then press false lashes into your own so they blend.

* Kim uses MAC Select/Sheer Loose Powder in NC45 as a bronzer.

* Sweep a highlighting powder under the eye.

* Remove mascara wand from tube (Kim is partial to MAC Zoom Lash) and wipe excess with a tissue to prevent clumping. Then apply to lashes.

* Line lips with a liner that closely matches your natural lip color (Kim uses MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown), then blend.

* Fill in lips with a pale lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Angel.

* Top off those lovely lips with a gorgeous gloss, like Kim’s fave, NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight.

* Finally, sweep a little powder blush onto cheeks; Stephen uses MAC Pro Powder Blush in Shy and Cheek
