Crushing On Bobbi Brown’s New Blushed Pink Collection

Bobbi+Brown+Blushed+Pink Crushing On Bobbi Browns New Blushed Pink Collection
Here’s a little secret: I don’t typically wear makeup during the work week. Call me a hypocrite if you want to. But if it’s a choice between ten extra minutes of sleep and a pretty face – well, I choose unconsciousness.

Though, I recently acquired a new makeup collection that has me rethinking my routine. Bobbi Brown’s Blushed Pink collection is so brilliant, literally, that I can’t not wear it. I am so enchanted by the products that I’ve even set my alarm a few minutes early. This is major.

bobbi+brown+Sparkle+Eye+Shadow Crushing On Bobbi Browns New Blushed Pink CollectionOnly Bobbi Brown could figure out a way to make sparkly shadow and glittery lipgloss appear office-appropriate, romantic, and chic – all at the same time. You will absolutely DIE when you see (and touch and apply) Bobbi’s new Sparkle Eye Shadow. The featherweight formula instantly lights up eyes with a unique combination of shimmering pearls and glitter in a translucent base. Wear it alone for a sheer wash of sparkles or layer over an opaque shadow to give the eye depth and texture.

I’ve tried a million and one eye shadows in my lengthy tenure as a beauty addict; and I have NEVER experienced a shadow that is simultaneously shimmering and subtle. I don’t really have the words to describe this product’s magic. You’ll just have to see it to believe it. Visit your local Bobbi Brown counter and play around with the Sparkle Eye Shadows (I’m partial to Mica), but be sure to bring some spending money because you won’t be able to leave without taking home a piece of this collection.

And while you’re at it, check out the new Lip Compacts that Bobbi created to complement the season’s soft, sparkly eye. All three shades are gorgeous, but Baby Glitter Lip Gloss is simply divine!

Blushed Pink is limited-edition, so don’t think about buying this collection. Do it. Do it now. As I type this, like-minded beauty addicts are depleting the supply. Get yours before it’s gone.

Blushed Pink is available at all Bobbi Brown counters and at bobbibrown.com.

SAG Awards Beauty: Angelina Jolie

angelina+jolie+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Angelina Jolie
Angelina looked stunning in a dark, navy blue Max Azria gown. Celebrity makeup artist Mary Burton wanted to create a 60’s look and chose to focus on Angelina’s eyes by applying lots of eyeliner and mascara. She used Lancôme Artliner in Noir just above the lash line. To compliment Angelina’s eye color and to make her eyes really stand out, she applied a bluish grey eyeshadow – YSL Ombre Solo Double Effect Eyeshadow in #3 Silk Blue – to the eyelid. Finally, she applied several coats of Lancôme Courbe Virtuôse Mascara in Black. Mary added a touch of pink to the apples of Angie’s cheeks using Shu Uemura blush in M Pink 31. To create ultra-shiny and luminous lips, Mary used Lancôme Color Fever Gloss in Rose Jolie, natch.

SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet

kate winslet sag awards 2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, Best Supporting Actress winner Kate Winslet accessorized her gorgeous Narciso Rodriguez gown and dazzling Chopard jewels with a little help from Fekkai, Lancome, Avon and Serge Lutens.

kate+winslet+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletKate’s glamorous low bun and side swept bang were created by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora using Fekkai products. To get the look, apply More All Day Density Styling Whip to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Large Round Brush, blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Technician Glaze to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head – ever so slightly – to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch.

kate+winslet+lancome+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletCelebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey played up Kate’s eyes with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and shimmering shadow paired with a soft neutral palette on her lips and cheeks. Jillian used Lancôme Artliner in Noir on the upper lash line and then lightly dusted Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash on the eyelid. She finished the eyes with a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. For the lips, she used Serge Lutens nude lip liner and filled in the entire lip. Finally, she applied Color Fever Gloss in Engaging, a very sheer nude shade, for a high-shine pout.
