Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Bronzer

kim kardashian Kim Kardashians Favorite Bronzer
Yesterday on her blog, Kim Kardashian answered some tanning questions. Here’s an excerpt, for all of you Kim fans…

Mona asks:

Hey Kim! I’d really love your “sun-kissed” look, what is your favorite make-up bronzer to use on your face/body??

Kim answers:
I love MAC bronzers! I try to use a darker pressed powder like NC45, instead of bronzers with shimmer, because it tends to look to shiny sometimes.

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Luscious Pink

This August, Mariah Carey will unveil Luscious Pink, her second fragrance with Elizabeth Arden.

“This scent is feminine, flirtatious and fun, and truly reflects where I am in my life now, after an incredible year,” Mariah says. “The response from my fans with my debut scent was overwhelming, and I can’t wait to see what happens with my second Luscious fragrance.”

Luscious Pink, a sparkling floral, has top notes of Sicilian bergamot, Ocean Breeze accord and sparkling Bellini accord; a heart of Tahitian Tiare petals, lily of the valley and pink peony, and a drydown of bright blond woods, creamy sandalwood and white musk, which has been described as “a floral melody that is as enveloping as Mariah’s voice.”

The collection includes eau de parfum sprays in three sizes: 1 oz. ($39.50), 1.7 oz. ($55) and 3.3 oz. ($65) — as well as a 6.8-oz. body lotion ($28). Luscious Pink will be sold in 2,000 U.S, department stores, and will also be available in Japan.

I’m a big fan of M, Mariah’s first fragrance – so I’m anxious to get a whiff of her sophmore scent.

This British actress sure has transformed herself over the years. She’s barely recognizable in this photo from 1993, the year she got her big-screen big break. Can you guess who she is?

Somebody Told Me…

This afternoon, I received an email from my girl Tess, over at Three Custom Color Specialists. Tess told me that Troy Jensen, makeup artist to the Pussycat Dolls, had just called from the set of the music video shoot for their new single, “When I Grow Up.”

palladium Somebody Told Me...In the video, Nicole Scherzinger will be wearing Three Custom Color’s Light Brights Lipstick in Palladium. The dolls loved the shades so much that Troy requested a set of all four shades for each of them!

Lil Kim, BIG Problem

lil+kim Lil Kim, BIG Problem
Allow me to digress for a second…

Lil Kim walked the pink carpet at the NYC premiere of Sex And The City: The Movie.

More shocking than the fact that she was fully clothed was the condition of her face. Look at Lil Kim’s face, people! She looks like the lost member of The Chipettes.

Let this be a lesson to us all. Makeup is for a moment. This hot mess is forever.

Sex And The City Beauty: Carrie

Makeup artist Judy Chin, who worked with Sarah Jessica Parker on the last four seasons of SATC and on several films, is responsible for SJP’s big-screen beauty.

“Sarah had many looks for this film but one thing that I always wanted to be present for her was a natural beauty that didn’t look like makeup,” Judy says.

“I tried to keep her eyes the focus by creating a strong yet natural lash line and I always framed her eyes with beautiful lashes. Also important: a healthy rosy flush to her cheeks, a soft mouth, and clean, healthy skin that had a natural glow and shine to it. I used blot film to remove excess shine and powdered only if I needed to.”

carrie3 Sex And The City Beauty: CarrieTo give SJP’s skin a light, dewy finish, Judy applied tinted moisturizer with a brush, which gives a more even blend than fingers. Then she smoothed it out with a cosmetic sponge to work the color into the skin, making it more natural. She used concealer only where necessary, and gave SJP a slight rosy cheek using cream blush. By layering and blending it into the skin, it more closely mimics a natural flush.

“I worked the eye pencil into her lashline by applying it in between her lashes and smudged it very softly to blend it,” Judy says. “I was careful to coat her lashes from the root and brushed them out – and we always curled them.”

Sex And The City Beauty: Samantha

samantha1 Sex And The City Beauty: Samantha
If you’re a fan of the series, you remember a time when Samantha Jones played for both teams. When we rejoin our favorite minx on the big screen, we learn that she’s bi again. Bi-coastal, that is. She’s traded the meatpacking district for Malibu.

samantha Sex And The City Beauty: SamanthaNow that she’s a California girl, makeup artist Kyra Panchenko gave Sam a tan.

Kyra mixed St. Tropez Self-Tanner and Aircraft Body Makeup, then topped it off with Scott Barnes Body Bling. “Kim went through loads of wipes to remove her body make-up each day and loved how gentle they were on her skin,” she says.

Kyra also used MAC Blot Powder in Medium, MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy, and MAC Cleansing Tips to clean up under the eyes.

Sex And The City Beauty: Charlotte

“Charlotte lives on the Upper East Side in New York, so the makeup is rich and classy,” says Kristen Davis’ makeup artist Nuria Sitja. Charlotte has a clean and classic style, so her look isn’t that different from a few years ago.

charlotte2 Sex And The City Beauty: CharlotteTo transform Kristen into Charlotte York-Goldenblatt, Nuria relied on mascara, pink powdered blush, and sheer pink lipstick.

“I also used lavender shadow in a few scenes because the color complements her eyes and skin tone. Charlotte’s signature look is really natural, so a lot of makeup just wouldn’t work.”

Charlotte’s high-gloss mane comes courtesy of hairstylist Michael Kriston, who applied a leave-in conditioner and a serum to prevent flyaways. “I wanted her to look really glamorous and sexy,” says Michael. To steal Charlotte’s sultry waves, blow drying hair, then use a professional curling iron for a tousled look.
