If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Jennifer Hudson’s Super Bowl Makeup Scores A Touchdown

jennifer+hudson Jennifer Hudsons Super Bowl Makeup Scores A Touchdown

The 2009 Super Bowl on Sunday marked Jennifer Hudson’s comeback, and she couldn’t have looked more gorgeous as she sang the Star Spangled Banner. Makeup Artist Sam Fine details how to achieve a look that screams naturally confident.

“Jennifer is very trusting with her team and really allowed us to collaborate to bring a look that is fresh and new to her,” says Sam. “She was performing a classic song, so I gave her a classic look that would speak to the song she was performing.”

Get that Confident Glow
“On a field seen by millions of people, it’s important to have beautiful skin,” advises Sam. “I like to start with a perfect canvas – that is a priority.”
How to: Start by layering bronzer onto the cheek bones using MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Degrade in Brunette. Then, apply a vibrant blush on top to add a pop of color.

Create a Classic Eye
“I wanted to play up the gold buttons on her jacket,” says Sam. “So I used a golden brown eye shadow on the eyelid.”
How To: Apply a light brown eye shadow across the lid. Then use Avon’s Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Black on the inside rim of the eye to add depth and definition.

“You can’t do a performance without false lashes,” states Sam. “They give the eyes sparkle in a naturally glamorous way.”
How To: Apply the false lashes and then fuse them with your own lashes using a great mascara like Avon’s SuperSHOCK Mascara.

Nude Lip is a Must
“I created a nude lip for Jennifer because I knew that a microphone would be in it’s way for the performance,” says Sam. “I didn’t want to call too much attention to the mouth.”
How To: Use a dark brown liner that is two shades darker than your lip color. Then add a nude to the middle of the lip – try Avon’s Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Rose Mauve. Dab on a bit of gloss in the center to finish.

The overall look was natural, beautiful and confident. “Jennifer was so excited – I think her team was more nervous than she was,” admits Sam. “We knew how important this was to her. But she was so clam and focused, listening to the song throughout the session to perfect the timing.”

Kim Kardashian’s Secret to Curly, Sexy Hair 24/7

Kim+Kardashian+Curly Kim Kardashians Secret to Curly, Sexy Hair 24/7
On her blog, Kim Kardashian shares her secret to “curly, sexy hair 24/7.”

curly+sexy+hair+24 7+curl+spray Kim Kardashians Secret to Curly, Sexy Hair 24/7Many of you have left comments on the site asking how I achieve my full, curly hair look…

Part of what I do is use [Curly Sexy Hair] 24/7 Curls: It’s an instant-set curling spray that protects from the heat of curling irons and locks in shine. It has memory that creates long lasting curls.

Here’s how you use it: You section your dry hair then you spray it on evenly over each section before you use the curling iron. It really helps in protecting your hair but makes the curls last all day! I never just curl my hair without any product or it will fall so fast.
