Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

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

New York Fashion Week: Spotted – Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth!

 New York Fashion Week: Spotted   Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth!

After I got my hair (Warren Tricomi) and makeup (Smashbox) done at the Fashion Week Daily Suite, I headed over to Bryant Park to drink coffee and people watch. Imagine my surprise when I spotted Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth emerging from the Promenade within minutes of each other.

Nicole’s hair really is to die for…the cameras don’t lie. And Kate graciously posed for pictures as a thousand and one photogs shouted her name and blinded her with flashes.

Unfortunately, while I had my head on a swivel, I didn’t have my camera at the ready. Hopefully, these won’t be the last star sightings at New York Fashion Week, Fall 2009.

 New York Fashion Week: Star Spotting at the MAC Lounge

Happy Tuesday, Spoiled Pretty readers. I’m one day away from the end of my New York Fashion Week tour, and it’s been a whirlwind. Today, while chilling in the MAC Lounge backstage at Bryant Park, Erika and I met Joy Bryant, Santogold and Monet Mazur. After attending the Matthew Williamson show, the three friends yucked it up while filming a video for MAC.

Before they departed for their next fabulous destination, we snapped some pics and asked them about their favorite MAC products.

Joy, who wore no makeup (and was ridiculously gorgeous despite the fact) dished that she can’t live without MAC’s Ruby Woo Lipstick. She says that it’s the only lipstick she ever wears…and she’s running low. Do you hear that, MAC?

Santogold, who is so contagiously vivacious and funky fun, said that she wears MAC Glitter in Reflects Antique Gold. In fact, she puts it on before every show.

Sam Fine’s Secrets To Queen Latifah’s Grammy Look

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | Leave a comment

queen+latifah+grammys Sam Fines Secrets To Queen Latifahs Grammy Look
“Often clients make requests,” says makeup artist Sam Fine. “Last night, Queen had one request: she wanted to look natural with wonderful skin, sparse lashes and a great brow. Most of the time was spent perfecting the canvas.”

Want to get Queen Latifah’s natural look? Here’s how…

FACE
Use a cream foundation to give skin a supple, flawless complexion. Next, apply a bit of powder to the t-zone only. This allows the outer perimeter of the skin to glow naturally. Layer on bronzer to add a glow, then follow with a bit of blush on the apples of the cheek. “Since Queen was wearing a strapless dress, I applied a thin layer of moisturizer to her shoulders and collar bone. Then I dusted on some bronzer to make draw a bit of attention and make them shimmer,” says Sam.

Products to try: CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder, CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Ebony Bronze, CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Foundation, CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Blush in Shimmering Sands

EYES
Apply a small amount of highlighter to underneath the brow bone. Then use the same bronzer as a shadow and sweep it lightly across the eyelids. Use a smokey black pencil liner to line the upper lid and then smudge it with a deep ebony shadow. Apply a few coats of mascara. “I used barely any eyeshadow when creating this look. Very less is more,” advises Sam. ” An alternative to the deep ebony shadow could be a dark navy. As always when creating an eye for an awards show or event, don’t forget your false lashes.”

Products to try: CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Shimmering Onyx, CoverGirl Outlast SmoothWear All-Day Eyeliner in Onyx

LIPS
Line the lips with a liner that is one shade darker than your natural color. Then apply a matching shimmering lip gloss on top. Voila! “The lips were extremely nude to compliment the rest of the classic look,” says Sam.

Products to try: CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint Lip Gloss in No Care Bare, CoverGirl Wetslicks Outlast Smoothwear Lip Liner in Nude

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Hair Styling Cream

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

kim kardashian grammy1 Kim Kardashians Favorite Hair Styling CreamWhat’s Kim Kardashain’s favorite styling cream? She loves Ojon Animated Styling Cream.

“It increases hair volume, adds separation and texture, boosts moisture and shine, and it’s non-greasy. I use it when my hair is down and I’m wearing a sleeker look. It’s also the perfect cream to use in a pony tail when you want it slicked back but not that oily-greasy look. You guys should try it!”
