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

Mamma Mia / Hot Mama

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Lipstick, Mascara | 1 Comment

aguilera Mamma Mia / Hot Mama
Christina Aguilera is no longer keeping her pregnancy on the DL. At recent events, the songstress has been proudly showing off her growing baby bump. Too bad she’s still keeping that maternity glow hidden under layers of theatrical makeup. Although Aguilera has made (baby) steps in the right direction by trading red lips for pretty pink ones, she has a ways to go. Is it wishful thinking that the onetime dirrty girl will fully come clean?

Keri Mamma Mia / Hot Mama
On the other end of the spectrum is Keri Russell, who is looking resplendent on the cover (and inside the pages) of Lucky Magazine’s November issue. 2007 was a good year for the actress – as she married her longtime love, gave birth to son River, and became the new face of Cover Girl. “I don’t spend a lot of time on my makeup, but throwing on black mascara and nude lipstick is enough to make me feel glamorous,” she says. Her low-maintenance makeup includes Lash Blast Mascara in Very Black and Tru Shine Lipcolor in Blushberry Shine – both by Cover Girl.

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | Leave a comment

image thumb Milestone For MACOn November 15th, Eve and Dita Von Teese were on hand at the MAC store in NYC to mark a momentous milestone for the MAC Aids Fund – $100 million raised to help fight HIV and AIDS around the world! The money represents the sale, over the past 13 years, of more than 7.1 million VIVA GLAM lip products – of which 100% of the sale price has gone to the work of the Fund.

Helping to drive fundraising for the MAC AIDS Fund have been a host of celebrity spokespeople; each connected with a specific shade of VIVA GLAM Lipstick, these 16 spokespeople have made public appearances and appeared in advertisements to raise money and awareness for the fight against HIV and AIDS. The inaugural VIVA GLAM spokesperson was performer, RuPaul. Since then, others have joined the ranks, including Mary J. Blige, Sir Elton John, Missy Elliott, Boy George, Linda Evangelista, Chloë Sevigny, Christina Aguilera, Pamela Anderson, and Debbie Harry. Currently the faces of the MAC AIDS Fund are R&B artist, Eve and burlesque star, Dita Von Teese.

“The celebrities who have joined us over the years embody the spirit of MAC and the MAC AIDS Fund – Every Race, Every Sex, Every Age,” said MAC AIDS Fund Chairman and MAC President, John Demsey. “By bringing these new faces to VIVA GLAM, we have been able to keep not only the brand but the cause fresh for consumers, helping to drive the MAC AIDS Fund to new levels.”

Congrats, MAC!

 Lighten Up
As the days get shorter and the weather colder, most women opt to go darker – with their hair, cosmetics, and wardrobe. Christina Ricci isn’t most women. Just in time for Halloween, the actress traded in her signature goth style for a lighter, brighter look at a Louis Vuitton event in Los Angeles.

What do you think of Christina’s new do? Is it a keeper? Or should she go, as Amy Winehouse puts it, back to black?

Doing It Well

 Doing It Well
Jennifer Lopez, and her rumored unborn twins, have been very busy lately. To promote her sixth studio album, Brave, Lopez has appeared on Good Morning America, The Late Show with David Letterman – and most recently, Dancing With The Stars.

But Jenny from the block isn’t satisfied with conquering the radio and small screen. She’s also on newsstands now – showing off her pregnancy glow on the November issue of Allure.

For Lopez’s Allure cover look – dramatic false eyelashes, dewy skin, and glossy nude lips – her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes drew inspiration from 1960s model Marisa Berenson. “I understand Jennifer’s face so well I could do it in the dark. I have,” he says. “She’s my muse beyond a shadow of a doubt.”

Recreating JLo’s makeup is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

jlo1 Doing It Well1. Fill out the upper and lower lashlines with clusters of false lashes; they give a more natural effect than full lashes. Swipe a stroke of black liquid liner along both lids to camouflage the falsies. Brush black mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

2. Fill in the lips with a pale, nude pencil.

3. Add a layer of shimmery, clear lip gloss. Makeup artist Scott Barnes always uses his fingertips to apply the maximum amount.
