When I saw the new Bourjois Regard Paillete Glitter Pencil (~$11) on display at Boots, I could not resist. The pencil comes in four gorgeous colors – black, baby blue, teal and brown – all packed with silver glitter. I ended up bring home the black one, Noir éblouissant 31, since I just ran out of black eyeliner.
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.
I always thought Chanel foundations were pretty good but after seeing a picture of this girl wearing the Chanel Pro Lumiere Professional Finish Makeup and looking absolutely flawless, I knew I had to go check it out.
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.
