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.

My Kim Kardashian Lip Look

dash My Kim Kardashian Lip Look
The other day, I posted Kim Kardashian’s 10 step makeup routine. I mentioned that my personal recipe for Kim K lips is MAC Lipstick in Syrup plus MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab.

mykimdashlipcombo+004 My Kim Kardashian Lip LookI received a few emails asking for swatches. I’m all about serving the people, so here ya go. Click the pic for a larger view.

It’s so gorgeous on…you don’t even know. I would have puckered up, rather than snap pics of my inner arm. But my upper lip is late for a meeting with the wax, if you know what I mean. And no one wants to see that.

Kim Kardashian Makeup Lesson

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Kim Kardashian, Makeup Brush | 7 Comments

kimkardashian Kim Kardashian Makeup Lesson
Kim Kardashian and I actually have a lot in common. Get your mind out of the gutter…I do not make those types of home videos. She and I both have bubble butts, blogs, and a love of makeup.

Kim is one of those pseudo-celebs who you either love or you hate. Me, personally…I find Keeping Up With The Kardashians mindlessly entertaining. In fact, I’m watching it as I type this. But whatever you think of her lifestyle or morals, you’ve gotta admit that she’s got the smoky eye/nude lip look down to a science.

kimtimes3 Kim Kardashian Makeup Lesson
I must not be the only one desperately trying to re-create Kim’s signature look, because she recently posted her top 10 makeup tips – in response to the oodles of fan question she receives. Kim isn’t so keen at proofreading – so instead of copy-and-pasting directly from her site*, I chose to summarize and include links to the products she mentions.

STEP 1: Kim washes her face, applies moisturizer, then applies Intuit Beauty Photo Shoot makeup primer.

STEP 2: To conceal imperfections, Kim uses Cle De Peau Concealer Stick in Ocre or MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer in NW25 if she runs out of Cle de Peau.

STEP 3: After Kim puts the concealer on, she applies Make Up For Ever Liquid Foundation – she mixes one pump of No. 5 and two pumps of No. 4 (she uses No. 3 for the winter months, when she’s paler). To blend and apply the foundation for a seamless finish, Kim uses MAC Brush 180 (Small Buffer Brush).

STEP 4: Since she hates dark circles, after the foundation, she puts on a little more concealer just under her eyes. For this step, Kim prefers MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer in NW30.

STEP 5: To set the foundation, Kim lightly applies MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC 30 with a brush. Then to tan it up, she lightly brushes on MAC Select/Sheer Powder in NW 45.

STEP 6: Kim is “obsessed with blush” and uses MAC Powder Blush in Gingerly. She also mentions her new love for cream blush, saying that it “works a lot better and lasts a lost longer.” I agree.

STEP 7: Now, time for the eyes – Kim’s favorite part. First, Kim applies MAC Paint Pot in Painterly to the entire lid, using her fingers; this prevents powder eye shadow from creasing. Kim loves colored shadow. If she going for a black smoky look, she uses MAC Eye Shadow in Carbon. If she wants a gray smoky eye, she uses Knight Divine or Print. For a brown smoky eye, Kim likes Embark. For a fresh, shimmery eye, she chooses MAC Pigment in Tan. Kim also does bright eye colors, and loves vivid shadows from Make Up For Ever. “I don’t think anyone does pigment colors better than them,” she says.

STEP 8: Kim always uses black pencil eyeliner. Her favorite is Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx.

STEP 9: Kim applies Lancome Hypnose Mascara, then layers on MAC Zoom Lash on top. She always uses a separator brush to prevent clumps, and only wears falsies for photo shoots because she’s clueless about how to apply them.

STEP 10: Kim lightly lines lips with MAC Lip Pencil Stripdown (what a coincidence) then swipes on MAC Lipstick in Angel. Then she applies NARS Turkish Delight Lip Gloss on top. For a very nude matte lip, she lines with MAC Subculture Lip Pencil and tops it off with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Belle De Jour.

And there you have it. Kim Kardashian in 10 steps. Obviously, these shades aren’t universal…so feel free to experiment with colors to find what best suits your skintone. For example, my sister and I just recently found that MAC Lipstick in Syrup plus MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab equals our perfect Kim K lip look.

And how much do you wanna bet that Kim ends up as one of the new faces of MAC? If I was her mother/agent, Kris, I’d be lobbying for that.

Nina Garcia, I’m Sorry…But You’re Out

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, I Digress, Project Runway | 1 Comment

nina Nina Garcia, Im Sorry...But Youre OutJust days after Project Runway said “Auf Wiedersehen” to Bravo, Elle Magazine tells PR judge Nina Garcia she’s out.

Nina, who has served as Elle’s fashion director since 2000, “was in the office on Friday morning, but by the afternoon, sources close to the building say Hachette’s Midtown offices were abuzz about the rumor.”

This story continues to unfold – so though no official reason has been given for Nina’s departure, I’m sure more salacious details will be forthcoming.

It remains to be seen if/how this breakup will affect her position as Project Runway’s resident style guru.

Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fragrance, Perfume | Leave a comment

harajuku+ad Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers
This Fall, Gwen Stefani will debut Harajuku Lovers, a collection of five new fragrances. The perfumes will be bottled in “dolls” designed by Stefani, based on herself and her backup dancers, The Harajuku Girls – Love, Angel, Music and Baby.

harajuku+bottles Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku LoversLove is a sensuous floral with notes of bergamot, pink pomelo, peach, bamboo leaf mist, watery peony, living hydroponic lace rose, jasmine sambac, nectarine blossom, creamy paperwhites, Egyptian jasmine, ylang ylang, vanilla orchid, musk and blond wood.

Lil’ Angel is a fruity floral with notes of raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, pineapple, pear blossom, candied violet, sugared rose, lollipop accord, hinoki wood and crystal amber.

Music is a delicate floral with notes of clementine, sparkling pear, jasmine sambac, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla, skin musk and sleek woods.

Baby is a powdery musk with notes of freesia, bergamot, white rose, orange flower, tiare flower, jasmine petals, white musk, soft woods, heliotrope, vanilla and violet.

G is a modern gourmand with notes of mandarin, fresh coconut, apple skin, jasmine sambac, freesia, magnolia vapor, coconut cream, white sandalwood and cottonwoods.

harajukugirlsandgwen Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers“I didn’t think this project would actually come to life,” Stefani said. “The idea that Coty would let me do five different fragrances for Harajuku Lovers was a fantasy. But it really had to be five, because that’s what the world is. Each girl has her own personality and sense of style. We’re all saying something different with unique personalities.”

Though her new fragrances haven’t yet been released, Gwen is already thinking about the future, and how she will continue to build her empire.

“I would love to have a full L.A.M.B. beauty line one day,” she told WWD. “It makes sense. I’ve always loved doing my hair and makeup and getting all dressed up. When I have a party or an event to go to, getting ready is just as much fun as actually going out.”

In the U.S., the collection will be sold in some department and specialty stores, including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Sephora. The lineup will also be sold in 17 international markets, including Japan, the U.K., France, Australia, Germany and China.

Harajuku Lovers will hit stores in September, and each scent will be available in two sizes: $45 for 30 ml. and $25 for 10 ml. A coffret, which includes solid perfume versions of all five, will be on counter later this fall as a permanent addition to the collection, and will retail for $60. “They’re value-priced to encourage multiple purchases,” said Catherine Walsh, senior vice president of American Fragrances for Coty Prestige.


Fabulosity

Fabulosity (n): a state of everything that is fabulous.

fab Fabulosity
Kimora Lee Simmons, entrepreneur extraordinaire, has turned her catchphrase into her newest money maker. Fabulosity – her third fragrance – is a fruity Oriental mix of Forbidden Fruit, Orange Blossom, Tiger Lily, Coconut Milk, Damask Black Plum, Chinese Osmanthus, White Patchouli, Tasmanian Honey, Amber, and Vanilla Absolute.

Damn, Kimora!

“Yes, I’m over the top, and yes, I’m unapologetic, and yes, I have really big diamonds, but I have an equally big heart and an equally big spirit,” she says.

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so it’s no wonder that I’m obsessed with the diamond-shaped bottle – which, if it were real, would equate to 3,000 carats.

The Fabulosity collection includes:
1.7oz Eau de Parfum, $45
3.4 oz Eau de Parfum, $55,
6 oz. Body Soufflé, $30
5.2 oz. Bath Diamonds (bath salts), $30

Available now at Macys.
