Beauty Inspiration: “I wanted to blend my old Hollywood inspiration from the dress with the
sunny California girl that is Cameron. So I paired the classic CHANEL red mouth with the golden sunny California eye.” -Makeup Artist Robin Fredriksz

Beauty Tip: “I used the gold shadow from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Mystic Eyes in
the outer corner of Cameron’s lids and crease, and then I used the darker peach and gold mixed together from CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow Quad in Demure on her lids. I lined her eye with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Dore, and finished with CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. On her lips she wore CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon.”

Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Jennifer Garner

jennifer+garner+2010+golden+globes Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Jennifer GarnerBeauty Inspiration: “Jen’s dress was a perfect nude colour, and the beads were pink and silvery. The overall look was champagne and beige. With her pale skin and dark hair, it was my job to bring color and radiance to the silhouette because everything else was quite monochromatic. I saw it as an excuse to break out the perfect lip shade.” -Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Beauty Tip: “I prepped the skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Serum and then CHANEL Sublimage Fluid Moisturizer, which leaves a velvety texture on the skin. On Jen’s eyes I used CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Kaska Beige. I liner her lids with CHANEL Long Lasting Eyeliner in Espresso, smudged it out, and used the dark burgundy shade from the quad along the lash line. I then used my favourite color in the world, the beigey-taupey-lilac shade in the quad, in the socket line. I feathered it along the lash line as well, to blend the chocolate brown liner. I curled the lashes, an applied one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. On her cheeks I used Neutrogena: a combination of Neutrogena Mineral Sheer Cheek Colours in Apricot, Sable, and Rare Rose. Finally, on the lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco in Rouge Orage (coming in March). I chose this shade because it has amazing staying power and incredible hydrating properties. It’s an intense rosey color with a bronze shimmer – perfect or Jen’s full lips.”

Beauty Tip: “I prepped Sandra’s skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Cream.

Her eyes were a mixture of CHANEL shadows – Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Orient-Express, and Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Trace. I then lined the eyes with CHANEL Long Lasting Eyeliner in Violine, a deep, soft purple shade.

On her cheeks, I used CHANEL Tweed Blush Duo in Tweed Rose. Finally, on her lips she wore CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Beige Felin (coming in March).”

Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Nicole Kidman

nicole+kidman+2010+golden+globes Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Nicole KidmanBeauty Inspiration: “Nicole is a true Hollywood movie star – and I knew I wanted to go with an old Hollywood look. Somewhere along the way, I decided to kick it up a bit and make her eyes more sexy and sultry.” -Makeup Artist Angela Levin

Beauty Tip: “To prepare Nicole’s skin, I used CHANEL Sublimage Cream all over her face and neck, and CHANEL Sublimage Eye Cream under the eyes.

Her eyes were a combination of CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadows – in Jungle, Bois Bleu, and Le Bronze. I gave her a slightly dramatic look with two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

On Nicole’s cheeks I used the perfect coraly pink blush, CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love. On her lips she wore CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque in Santal.”

Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Courteney Cox

golden+globes+2010+courteney+cox Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Courteney CoxCelebrity makeup artist Genevieve gave Courteney Cox a sexy smoky eye/nude lip combo for the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Genevieve lined Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Gris Noir on the upper and lower lash line to define Courteney’s eyes. Several coats of Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara in Black gave her lashes a beautiful boost of volume. Genevieve added Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Honeymoon to the inner corner and The New Black to the outer corner to make Courteney’s eyes pop.

Genevieve added just a touch of color to the cheeks with Giorgio Armani Sheer Cream Blush #2. For Courteney’s soft neutral colored pout, Genevieve dabbed on Lancôme Color Design Lipcolor in Pale Lip.

Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Rose Byrne

rose+byrne+golden+globes+2010 Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Rose ByrneA pal of mine at Lancôme just emailed me the inside scoop straight from celebrity makeup artist Ana Marie on how to get Rose Byrne’s Hollywood Glam look at tonight’s Golden Globes…

Ana Marie prepped the Damages star’s skin with Secret de Vie Toner (her favorite!) and then applied Lancôme Bienfait Multi Vital moisturizer to keep skin hydrated and fresh. Lancôme Absolue Foundation in Ecru was applied with a foundation brush and blended with a makeup sponge. This helps the foundation go on evenly and keep the skin looking radiant.

To create a sultry smokey eye, Ana Marie used Lancôme Eyeshadow Quad in Innocence Couture. The Positive shade was swept all over the eyelid and Fashion Scoop and Backstage Pass were blended just to the lash line and smudged. Next, Lancôme Artliner in Noir was used to create a cat line for extra drama. Lancôme Définicils Waterproof Mascara in Black coated the top and bottom lashes.

Lancôme Color Design Cream Blush in Petticoat Pink was dabbed on the apples of the cheek and then topped with a powder blush, Lancôme Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose. This technique helps keep the cheek color fresh all day, even with the rain! Shu Uemura Loose Powder in Translucent was dusted on the T-zone to create a matte complexion. Finally, Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Simmer gave Rose her ultra-glossy pout.

Do Something Beautiful: Help Haiti

 Do Something Beautiful: Help Haiti

Every day, I post about beautiful things you should buy. But today, I’m taking this opportunity to urge you to do something beautiful.

On Tuesday, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. More than 50,000 people are feared dead and 3 million more (one third of Haiti’s population) are left without access to food, water, shelter and electricity. Relief efforts are currently underway and you can play a part.

haiti+1 Do Something Beautiful: Help HaitiPlease make a monetary donation to one of the agencies responding to the Haitian earthquake relief. The situation is dire, and the people of Haiti are counting on our compassion and generosity. Every little bit helps, so don’t think you lack the means to make a difference. You know the money that you were saving to buy a new mascara, lip gloss or eye cream? Donate it to this very worthy cause. I guarantee you won’t miss it, and your small sacrifice could save someone’s life.

Yesterday, I took my ‘new jeans fund’ and split it amongst the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. New jeans would have been cute, but I couldn’t justify spoiling myself when there are so many people without bare necessities.

Visit CNN.com for a comprehensive list of charities that are providing critical assistance to those affected by the catastrophic earthquake.

My Favorite Fragrance Ad: Dior J’Adore

dior+charlize+theron My Favorite Fragrance Ad: Dior JAdoreIs there a better fragrance ad than the Dior J’Adore commercial starring Charlize? I think not. No only did it prompt me to get reacquainted with J’Adore’s fruity floral bouquet (we originally parted ways in college), I even downloaded Marvin Gaye’s “A Funky Space Reincarnation” on my iPod…good stuff.

The commercial for Miss Dior Cherie (directed by Sophia Coppola) is another great one. Dior just does it better. One perfume ad I could do without (besides the Britney Spears ones – those go without saying), however, is the Estee Lauder Pleasures commercial. I cannot stand the way Gwyneth Paltrow pronounces “pleasures”…her accent just sounds so contrived; makes me wince every time she says it. My theory is that she’s spent too much time viva la vida in London. Anyway…now, when it comes on TV, I brace myself for it. Too bad…great perfume, stinky ad.

What are your favorite fragrance ads?
