In support of Breast Cancer Awareness, Kim Kardashian is inviting her most trusted advisors – her fans – to help her design the look of the new rollerball edition of her signature fragrance, debuting this October. Participants will have one week to create and submit a design inspired by Kim to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kim will then choose the top three designs, which will be displayed on Kim’s website, and her fans will vote on their favorite. The winning design will launch at select retailers in October 2010. 10% of the proceeds will benefit Young Survival Coalition – the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer - helping fans give back to a worthy cause when they purchase the new rollerball scent. The grand prize winner will also get the chance to spend the day with Kim and discover how her custom design becomes a reality. (more…)
My question is about bronzer. Actually, I have a few questions. I am so confused! First, how do you choose your perfect shade of bronzer? Second, what is the best technique for applying powder bronzer? And do you have any favorites you can recommend?
Thanks a lot!
When chosing a shade of bronzer, you should consider the following: dark skin tones look best with bronzers that have red in them. Lighter skin usually looks good with a more pale/pinkish bronzer. When applying bronzer, I like to frame the entire face. Sweep the bronzer along the hairline, on hollows of the cheeks and along your jawline. Don’t forget to apply a bit to the neck as well.
Have you ever wanted to ask Kim Kardashian for advice on relationships, beauty, health, fashion or style? I know many of you do because I’m constantly inundated with emails asking how to cop Kim’s style. Anyway, now you can get the answers to your questions straight from Kim. (more…)
Though you can’t buy Kim Kardashian’s new fragrance until February, you can get a sneak peek at Sephora.com and be notified when it’s available for purchase.
The essence evokes Kim’s sultry style with crisp top notes, lush mid notes, and a sexy drydown. Gorgeous, voluptuous florals reflect her allure, while soft jasmine, tuberose, and gardenia mirror her femininity. Tonka bean, jacaranda wood, and sandalwood add a warm, sensual base.
Let me speak frankly. If you’re applying your foundation with anything but the Beautyblender sponge, you’re doing it wrong. Look…I don’t mean to put you on blast, but I’m here to give it to you straight. And when I tell you that Beautyblender is, hands down, the best foundation applicator, I speak the truth.
The point of foundation is to fool the eye of the beholder into thinking you were blessed with a flawless complexion. But if you’re applying it incorrectly, or with inferior tools, you just look like you’re wearing a makeup mask. And who wants that? Nobody, that’s who. The difference between foundation that looks like foundation and foundation that looks like skin is Beautyblender.
Since I was introduced to Beautyblender in 2007, we have been in a monogamous relationship. It is the only tool I use to apply my foundation. Invented by Hollywood makeup artists, this sponge leaves you with a professional finish. Applying makeup with fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges can waste makeup and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s elliptical shape makes allows you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Its suede-like texture repels product, so your foundation actually ends up on your face – rather than absorbed by the sponge. And its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your makeup dazzling and undetectable.
I even use it to apply my concealer and cream blushes. And if you have problem skin, I can’t recommend anything better for magically disguising blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Beautyblender is reusable (perfect for those green gals), latex-free, non-allergenic, and odor free…and makes a great holiday gift.
Give your beauty-loving BFF the gift of perfect skin with the Hot Pink Holiday Kit, which includes Beautyblender and 3 oz Blendercleanser in an organza drawstring carry pouch….tagged for gift giving!

“I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday,” he said. “I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way. It’s more exciting when they can’t see what I’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.” (more…)
My pal, celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, has a great new column over on his blog. Every day, he takes readers to beauty school – sharing ingenious beauty tips and product recommendations.
For a precise and very defined crease, Mario suggests using Sephora’s Nano Eyeliner to draw a line right on or under the crease. With a small brush, blend the line going up and/or out. Keep it in place with a touch of translucent powder.
