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.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


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.

Do You Like My New Nude Lip Look?

nude+lip+gloss Do You Like My New Nude Lip Look?

Can you guess what lipstick/gloss combination I used to create this nude lip look?

Okay…stop guessing. It’s a trick question because there’s actually no lipstick involved. I stole a tip from Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic:

I applied a tiny* bit of foundation (here, Clinique Superfit Makeup in Nutty) to partially cancel out the pink tones in my lips; then I coated my lips in MAC Clear Lipglass.

Genius!

*Make sure you just use a tiny bit of foundation. Too much will have you looking like crackhead Tyrone Biggums from Chappelle Show.

mac+nail+lacquer O My Goodness: Coolest Trick With MACs Style Warrior Nail Lacquers!

Today, I stopped by the Bloomie’s MAC counter at the Willow Grove Mall to pick up a few necessities (MAC Clear Lipglass and Nail Lacquer in Peaceable).

While I was there, my girl Hope showed me the coolest trick with the new Style Warrior Nail Lacquers. Paint on a layer of Violet Fire, then let dry. Then apply a layer of Mercenary.

When it’s all said and done, it looks almost identical to one of my fave MAC lipsticks, O.

Please pardon my raggedy cuticles and sloppy paint job. But trust me, it’s gorge in person.

 Spoiled Pretty Street Style: Dayna In PhiladelphiaBecause I know how much you love themed posts, like Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week and my celebrity articles, I’m adding another one to the roster…

Welcome to Spoiled Pretty Street Style – a new column that shines a spotlight on fashion and beauty trends, and how they’re being interpreted in your neck of the woods.

For the inaugural post, I’m spotlighting Dayna, an impossibly chic Philadelphia lawyer.

In the photo, Dayna is rocking: a Black Halo dress, J. Crew cardigan, Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Heidi Klum earrings, Lagos ring, David Yurman and Charriol bracelets, Louis Vuitton handbag, and Boutique 9 sandals.

SP: What are your top five beauty products for summer?
Dayna: Darphin Cleansing Foam Gel, NARS Bronzing Powder, NARS Blush in Orgasm, Diorshow Black Out Mascara, and Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Gloss in #72 (Bubble Plum)

SP: Are there any celebrities whose style you admire?
Dayna: Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Lauren Conrad, Diane Kruger, and Nicole Richie

SP: What items are you currently coveting?
Dayna: Burberry trench coat and Gucci sandals. Oh, and a Chloe Paddington bag. I just don’t think I should be living without it.

SP: What is your #1 beauty tip?
Dayna: Use a heated eyelash curler. They make a travel one at Sephora. It’s amazing.

Want to be featured in Street Style? Take a photo of yourself or someone you know, stylin‘ and profilin‘…with a breakdown of the fashion and beauty products pictured. Then send it to my inbox. If you’re chosen, I’ll feature the look on Spoiled Pretty – and I’ll send you a beauty goodie for your troubles!
