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’s Tips For Making Makeup Last

kim+kardashian+promo2 Kim Kardashians Tips For Making Makeup Last
On her blog, Kim Kardashian shares a few tips on making your makeup last and keeping it looking fresh all day:

It’s definitely hard to keep up your makeup all day. I touch up throughout the day. Using a primer always helps keep the foundation fresh. I use Smashbox primer.

I keep a translucent powder with me in my purse and put it on with a blush brush to get rid of the foundation getting oily.

In order to keep your eyeshadow on all day, apply a MAC paint to the lid then apply shadow on top!

The key to fresh makeup is just bringing the essentials with you to touch up throughout the day!

Keira Knightley loves herself some Chanel. Today, the spokeswoman attended the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2009 wearing a Chanel ensemble – and products from Chanel Beauté.

Makeup artist Kay Montano dishes on the inspiration behind Keira’s classic look:

keira+knightley+karl+lagerfeld Keira Knightley At Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2009 Show“Keira is such a classic beauty and was wearing a very chic simple Chanel black high neck top and a classic tweed skirt so I decided her make-up look should be very ingénue in contrast to her traditional attire. Keira also has a cool fringe a la Jane Birkin which frames her beautiful eyes so I decided to use her eyes as the focus.”

Kay kept Keira’s skin very translucent looking with sheer foundation Vitalumiere in Clair followed by a very light dusting of Poudre Universelle Compacte in Beige to give her skin a soft matte texture. Kay then suggested a chocolate plum eye courtesy of Quadra Eye Shadow in Mystic Eyes over a liberal smudging of Intense Eye Pencil in Ambre. The eyes were completed with Automatic Liquid Eyeliner next to the top lashes, edging to a ‘rock’ version of the classic tick plus lashings of Exceptionnel de Chanel Mascara in Smoky Noir. Powder Blush in Fandango was brushed on the cheeks to give a natural flush. Lips were given a modern retro look with a light slick of Levres Signées Chanel Satin Lip Cream Palette.

SAG Awards Beauty: America Ferrera

america+ferrera+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: America Ferrera
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, America Ferrera’s makeup was inspired by her Vera Wang beige chiffon gown. Makeup artist Linda Hay wanted America’s makeup to have a fresh and romantic feel, yet very modern to compliment the gentle nature of her dreamy gown – so she decided on a very simple eye, a peachy cheek and a deep red lip.

Linda began creating her look by lightly evening out America’s complexion using YSL’s Touche Eclat where necessary, around the eyes, the nose and the corners of the mouth, followed by a light dusting of powder. She then applied Shu Uemura’s “Peche” directly to the apple of the cheek for a fresh, youthful look.

For the eyes, she drew a fine line on the top eyelid with Jouer Eye Definer in Mure. Using a large flat eye brush, Linda gently swept a shimmering white shadow from Cle de Peau #14 Eye Color Quad, across the entire lid, up and into the brow. With a smaller pointed eye brush she lined the silver shadow from the same palette to the bottom lid and from the inside corner to the outside corner of the eye. The inside of the eye was lined with Jouer Eye Clarifier in Clair. Finally, Linda applied three generous coats of Chanel mascara to both top and bottom lashes. The brow was strong and well defined using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit. On the Lips, Linda used MAC Viva Glam Lipstick.

On her blog, Kim Kardashian answers some beauty-related fan mail. When asked about the curling iron she used to create her inauguration night look (see above), Kim responded:

I use Hot Tools curling irons. They have a bunch of different sizes. If you want smaller, tighter curls, go with a smaller iron. If you want bigger, sexy curls, go with a larger one! Since your hair is so long, I’d suggest you use their 2-inch model for bigger waves! Happy hairstyling!
