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

america+ferrera+2008+emmys Steal Ferreras Style With Fekkai
Hairstylist Daniel Howell used Frederic Fekkai products on Emmy nominee, America Fererra for the 2008 Emmys.

The look: A modern day Veronica Lake with heightened definition and a defined wave pattern. Accented with a strong side part and pulled back to one side.

How to get the look: Start by applying Défense Pre-Style Thermal UV Protectant to wet hair. Brush from roots to ends with the Classic Brush. Spray Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel through out and dry hair. Using a 3/4 inch curling iron start at the nape of the neck and wrap the hair from middle to root. Make sure all the hair is going in the same direction making it a repetitious pattern. Then use the next size curling iron on the ends of the hair. Go through the entire head from right side to left side. Clip the hair into desired waves close to the scalp. Remove clips and brush out curls for a soft finish. Set with Sheer Hold Hairspray.

Today, I was hanging out with Jamie at the tents before the Terexov show – and we literally saw six stars in six minutes.

1) Brandy
2) Miss Jay Alexander (above)
3) Fern Mallis
4) Nigel Barker
5) Lloyd Boston
6) Jay McCarroll

I ran into Julia later on, and she told me she was chatting with Molly Sims in the lobby of the Bryant Park Hotel. Also spotted in the lobby was Zoe Saldana!

Gotta love New York Fashion Week!

Carrie Underwood is Allure‘s cover girl for their September 2008 issue.

carrie+underwood+allure Carrie Underwood Is Just Like Us: Shes a Makeup Junkie!
Makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen was inspired by glamorous Bond girl Ursula Andress. “The idea with Carrie’s makeup was to showcase her eyes and give them that ‘pop,’” says Reiss-Andersen.

First, she sponged on a light wash of foundation and dabbed the apples of Underwood’s cheeks with a peach cream blush. Then she rimmed Underwood’s eyes in charcoal liner and blended cranberry and nude eye shadow from the lash line to the crease. She added “tons of fake lashes” as well as mascara. Finally, Reiss-Andersen applied a sheer and pearly lip gloss so it “didn’t compete with her eyes.”

To re-create the look, try:

Chanel+Powder+Blush Carrie Underwood Is Just Like Us: Shes a Makeup Junkie!* Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadows in Cinnamon and Beige
* Chanel Powder Blush in Horizon
* Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss in Bonbon

Reiss-Andersen offered to tone down Underwood’s makeup before she headed out the door, but the singer loved it so much that she kept it. She signed a few autographs for the crew before heading off to shop for cosmetics at a local mall with her mom and sister – fake eyelashes and all!

Style Me, Baby – Three More Times

britney+2007+vma Style Me, Baby   Three More Times
By now, you’ve probably heard that Miss Spears will be performing at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. And considering the caliber of last year’s performance, I think it’s a good move…there’s nowhere to go but up, right?

To redeem herself from last year’s stringy, extension nightmare, Brit Brit is gonna get her hair did by Kim Vo. He recently revealed that the tabloid queen will sport not one…not two…but THREE different hairstyles at this year’s awards show.

3+barrel+waver Style Me, Baby   Three More TimesThe red carpet look will feature cascades of S-curls, which were all over the place at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards. To achieve this style, section hair…and starting underneath, curl hair with a 3 barrel waver. Lightly spritz with flexible-hold hair spray to set the shape, then finger comb to break up the curls. With this hairstyle, Vo advises balancing the softness of the curls with a strong part.

kim+kardashian+low+side+pony Style Me, Baby   Three More TimesFor the second look, Britney will sport a sophisticated, low side pony with side-swept bangs. Kinda like beauty diva, Kim K (left).

The third look, for Brit’s performance, is under lock and key.

Vo teases that we’ll have to wait until the VMAs on September 7 for the hairstyle secret to be revealed.

Kim Kardashian’s Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!

Kim+Kardashian Kim Kardashians Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!
I know that you Kim Kardashian fans have been anxiously waiting for the finale of her “Smokey Eye” video tutorial. Today, Kim and her makeup artist, Stephen Moleski, show us how to finish the look with lush lashes and kissable lips.

* Stephen recommends fake eyelashes with a clear base, because they’re more pliable.

* Cut fake lashes to desired length.

* Apply Duo Surgical Adhesive to fake lash strip and let dry until adhesive gets tacky.

* While looking down, slip on lash strip – then press false lashes into your own so they blend.

* Kim uses MAC Select/Sheer Loose Powder in NC45 as a bronzer.

* Sweep a highlighting powder under the eye.

* Remove mascara wand from tube (Kim is partial to MAC Zoom Lash) and wipe excess with a tissue to prevent clumping. Then apply to lashes.

* Line lips with a liner that closely matches your natural lip color (Kim uses MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown), then blend.

* Fill in lips with a pale lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Angel.

* Top off those lovely lips with a gorgeous gloss, like Kim’s fave, NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight.

* Finally, sweep a little powder blush onto cheeks; Stephen uses MAC Pro Powder Blush in Shy and Cheek
