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.

Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer

kim+kardashian Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer
On her blog, Kim dishes on her favorite bronzer. The key? It gives her serious glow, without looking greasy…

smashbox+bronzer Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best BronzerI love this bronzer and use it all over my face and my cheekbones to give me definition but also color. It’s by Smashbox and it’s called Bronze Lights. I get it in the Suntan Matte shade. I think it’s important to have a great matte bronzer that doesn’t have shimmer in it because sometimes shimmer can make you look oily. I use a smaller brush to contour my cheekbones and then use a bigger powder brush to give me a little color on my forehead and nose.

Spotted: Blake Lively on the Cover of Vogue

blake+lively+vogue Spotted: Blake Lively on the Cover of Vogue
OMFG! Blake Lively is Vogue‘s February cover girl. Lively looks absolutely lovely, channeling old Hollywood a la Veronica Lake.

“The fashion is just unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained,” Lively says. And she’s not overstating it. The characters wear designer clothes that teeter between unattainable chic and self-parody, be it Bass’s wearing a tuxedo covered with paillettes that shimmer like a matador’s suit or Blair’s attending the dean’s party at Yale with an Alice-in-Plunderland pewter-colored satin bow in her hair. For her part, Lively is entranced by Serena’s authentically local look. “Just being here, walking around, you pick it up really quickly,” she explains. “In New York, you put on skinny jeans and riding boots and a leather coat and handbag, and you take on that posture and character,” Lively says. “It becomes very natural.” Lively’s natural style? Costume National boots, dark Rag & Bone trousers, and a Joie cashmere vest over a Ports 1961 white pointelle cashmere sweater, punctuated by Chanel earrings, a Chanel handbag, and a Jeri Cohen diamond bracelet. (“They let me borrow it, and now I can’t take it off,” Lively says mischievously.)

Golden Globes Gorgeous: America Ferrera

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

america+ferrera Golden Globes Gorgeous: America FerreraThis Year for the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards, nominee America Ferrera, walked the red carpet with makeup designed by Linda Hay.

“Inspired by America’s effortlessly chic Oscar de la Renta dress, I kept her look sweet and simple,” said celebrity make-up artist, Linda Hay. Linda used Jouer’s Age Repairing Brightener around the eye and on the nose to illuminate America’s eyes. “The skin, I kept as sheer as possible by using as little as possible. I like to cover whatever’s required without over doing it because America has beautiful skin,” Linda said. On the cheeks, using finger-tip application, Linda applied Jouer’s Lip and Cheek Tint in Amaryllis, a sheer warm read which blended in to compliment America’s skin tone. “On her eyes, I applied a light and sheer shimmer all over the lid and inner corner of the eye, with a metallic silver shadow in the crease.” Using a black pencil, Linda applied a thin, defined line right above her lashes. Linda applied three coats of Dior Blackout Mascara to America’s eyes to make them pop.

Golden Globes Gorgeous: Hayden Panetierre

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

hayden+panettiere Golden Globes Gorgeous: Hayden PanetierreCelebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman created Hayden Panetierre’s Golden Globe look – and now she shares her secrets to this flawless face:

Eyes: “With eyes like Hayden’s green sparklers, who needs a load of jewelry? We amped up the brilliance of Hayden’s green eyes with Neutrogena’s newest Nourishing Eye Quad in Vintage Wine. It includes a dazzlingly deep burgundy in a powder powerful enough to act as an eyeliner, which is perfect for creating the smoky look that Hayden adores. I layered on the Vintage Wine at the lash line and doubled it in the outer corners for an extra flash of drama.”

Face: “I love to build on Hayden’s golden look with Neutrogena Radiance Bronzer in Sunkissed. I swept it through the crease of her eye and all around her cheekbones and neck. It’s so soft and light you just cannot put too much on … so go crazy with it!”

“After bronzing, I mixed two delectable Neutrogena Soft Color Blushes – Sunny Spice and Divine Wine and applied them with a round brush in a circular motion to the apples of Hayden’s cheeks. I love layering this blush — it’s so sheer you can dust a little color in the crease of the eye to tie your look together.”

Lips: “This year lipstick is back and Neutrogena’s are brighter and better. My favorite is Neutrogena’s Moisture LipColor in Whisper Pink for painting on the perfect pout. It goes on with just a hint of shine so it leaves your lips looking healthy and moist.”

Also, remember the following tips when re-creating this glamorous face. First, never contour with blush. It makes you look so retro-80s – and not in a good way. And slip a pack of blotting sheets into your evening clutch, to remove shine without removing your makeup.
