If you have straight hair and want to create sexy wavy hair a la Ashlee Simpson, all you need is ten minutes and five simple steps.
Step 1. Apply a heat-protection product onto your hair and make sure it is evenly distribute (I like Paul Mitchell Heat Seal).
Step 2. Wrap an one inch section of your hair around a middle sized barrel curling iron. I just got Vidal Sassoon Micro Crystal Curl 25mm Tong and I LOVE that baby! Not only does it heat up within seconds but it also has nine different settings (now this should go under another entry).
Rim your upper and lower lashlines with a shimmery charcoal eyeshadow and wing it slightly at the outer corner – MAC’s Knight Divine is *perfect* for this. Highlight the inner corner of your eyes with a shimmery white powder like Stila’s All Over Shimmer Powder in #7. Curl your eyelashes and apply several coats of black mascara.
Swipe a bubblegum pink blush like NARS Desire along your cheekbones and sweep the same shimmery white powder along your nose to highlight it.
To get luscious lips like Ara’s, try a pink gloss like Bourjois’ Effet 3D High Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Angelic 5.
Here are some of my favorite looks from the AMAs.
Katharine McPhee from American Idol (she looks *so* much better now)
Here is a breakdown of Yuna Ito’s makeup in her video “Losin” as requested:
Brush a shimmery yellow-green eyeshadow (try Urban Decay’s Acid Rain or MAC’s Chartreuse pigment) onto your entire eyelid. Rim your upper and lower lashlines with a black eye pencil and apply several coats of mascara. For an extra oomph, apply glitter on the center of your eyelid.
To add a little warmth to your skin, brush on a shimmery peach color (try NARS Orgasm) onto your cheekbones.
For nude lips like Yuna’s, first tone down your lips with a flesh-colored lipstick like MAC’s Myth or simply apply a thin layer of foundation. Slick on a pale lipgloss like MAC’s Florabundance or Dior’s Addict Ultra Gloss in Dazzling Beige.
Okay here is a post with some of the worst makeup I have seen in 2006. I do not mean to bash any of the following celebrities. I am just giving my two cents so if you are a fan, I am sorry and did not mean to offend.
Nothing is right about Sharon here in this picture. The hair is too much and the makeup is washing her out and making her look a gazillion times older. And seriously, what is with the yellow lipgloss?! Ditch it and throw on some blush girl!
Blue eyeshadow paired with bright red lipstick? This look cannot get any tackier. Paris, I know you are the heiress to the Hilton millions and you live an extravagant life but that does not give you the right to walk around looking like a $5 hooker. Please just stick to your MAC Prrr lipglass.
Here is another typical case of Oompa-Loompa syndrome that makes me shudder. The orange skin paired with the uber red lips is just ughhhhhhh! Plus the over-the-top liner is not only making Brook’s eyes look small and beady but it could also send her on her way to an eye infection.
Every time I see this picture, I just cannot help but laugh out loud. That hair is making Teri look like a maid and the powdery, unflattering makeup is definitely not making her look any younger either. Sorry Terry, you might be votd the “Sexiest Woman in the World” in the 90s but if you keep walking around like this, everyone can see why all the guys prefer Eva more than you.
