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

jada Is Jada Pinkett Smith Hiding A Black Eye?
Okay…so I’ve been hearing some crazy things about Miss Jada lately. Word on the streetz is that she’s using that crazy ratnest mullet hairdo to hide a black eye. What ever happened to good ole concealer? Did anyone see the Oprah/Tom Cruise interview? It seems that this is where the buzz started.

You know I love the celeb fodder. So if you have any info (or just wanna spread more rumors), please leave them in the comments section below. Be a gossip, girl…I won’t judge.

Mariah Carey-Cannon: MC Squared

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | 2 Comments

mariah carey1 Mariah Carey Cannon: MC SquaredBy now, you’ve probably heard that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were married on Thursday at her estate in the Bahamas. The nuptials were foreshadowed earlier in the week when Mariah was spotted blinding bystanders with a 17-carat sparkler.

Personally, I think this marriage is going to bomb like Glitter. Not hatin’. Just sayin’.

People’s Most Beautiful People 2008

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | 7 Comments

kate hudson Peoples Most Beautiful People 2008
People‘s 100 Most Beautiful People 2008 issue will be on newsstands starting Friday, May 2nd…but here’s a sneak peek at who the mag thinks got the pretty genes. Making this year’s list are (among others):

*Salma Hayek
*Mary J. Blige
*Rumer Willis (huh?)
*Sarah Silverman (pretty? yes. most beautiful? idk.)
*Christina Applegate
*Eva Longoria & Tony Parker (b/c it’s impossible to separate them.)
*Isla Fisher
*Amanda Beard (uh, no.)
*Cast of Gossip Girl
*Julianne Moore
*Jason Taylor
*Vanessa Hudgens
*Taylor Swift
*Zoe Saldana (I’ve loved her ever since Center Stage.)
*Jessica Alba & Cash Warren (surely, their baby will be beautiful.)
*Carrie Underwood

At the head of the pack is Kate Hudson , who graces the issue’s cover. Her best time for looking good, she tells the magazine, comes “at the end of the night, when everything’s soaked in and I’m still up. I like the leftover makeup in the morning. You’ve got to wash your face but there’s always the leftover eye makeup, I love that.”

What do you think about this list?

Get The Leona Lewis Look

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

Every morning, while I get ready for work, I tune to the Weather Channel – to figure out what I’m going to wear, and how I’m going to wear my hair (no need fussing with it if rain or humidity is going to render it limp or frizzy). Then I flip to VH1 for some background noise. Recently, without fail, just as I’m about to head out the door, Leona Lewis appears on my screen to serenade me with her hit, “Bleeding Love.” The last few days, I have switched from being mesmerized by her voice to being totally obsessed with her makeup.


I’ve performed one exhaustive search after another trying to find out which products she used for the video, but turned up empty-handed. I did manage to track down her makeup artist’s website.

JaneBradley Get The Leona Lewis LookJane Bradley has more than 15 years of experience under her makeup tool-belt, and her work with Leona Lewis has put her career on the fast track.

Her website’s blog doesn’t divulge the products used in the “Bleeding Love” video, but it does offer some of Jane’s techniques and favorite products.

For Leona’s February 2008 Harper’s Bazaar shoot, Jane used shades of black and brown on the eyes and kept everything else skin toned – even the lips. This look worked well with all the rather theatrical clothes that Alison Edmond (fashion director Harper’s Bazaar) had chosen. This look draws all the attention to the eyes which looks very seductive. Jane opted for a nude shade lipstick instead of a gloss to make it look more editorial and recommends shades by MAC in High Tea and Nars lip shades in Belle du Jour and Dolce Vita. If your natural lip colour is quite strong try rubbing in a little foundation or concealer before the lipstick. Jane also discovered a great lip pencil recently by ModelCo in Erase which may also help neutralise very pink lips.

In complete contrast, the shoot for You Magazine was another story altogether. This time the clothes were very feminine and girly with lots of long hippy inspired prints and flowing fabrics (summer’s going to be divine!) Jane and Leona decided to go for simple yet dramatic flirty eyes; no clever shading or strong eye shadow here, just lots of individual false lashes applied both to the top and bottom eyelids to give the freshest dreamiest eyes ever. Leona’s favourite colour, pink, was used to gently add colour to the cheeks using Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour blush in Icing. Lips were enhanced using lip balm and a slick of Bobbi Brown lipstick in Pale Pink.

Here are some of Jane’s beloved beauty products:

*Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer compact
*Laura Mercier Secret Brightener (use it under the eyes before foundation then followed by the concealer; it has an iridescent hue which bounces light off the dark area giving extra help for really stubborn eye bags)
*Products from The Organic Pharmacy
*Products from the Stella McCartney Care organic skincare line

Jane also has an instructional DVD called Lips to Lashes, in which she shows how to apply make-up correctly, dispels myths and reveals tricks she uses on celebrities and models. To check out a clip, click here.
