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.
Saw the pink Samsung x830, otherwise known as Blush, at the store last weekend and just had to write an entry about it. Advertised as “the only compact a girl needs”, the supa dupa cool phone comes with a bundle of Benefit makeup and is now free when you sign up for a 12-month contract over £30, or £180 on Pay As You Go with Orange.
Measuring at just 84mm x 30mm x 20 mm and weighing 72 grams, it has a rotator design with a circular control pad that is similar to an iPod. The phone also comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera and Bluetooth, along with a multimedia player capable of playing MP3, AAC and WMA media formats. The phone also has an internal storage of 1GB, meaning it can hold up to approximately 250 tracks.
As for the makeup, included are a Gorgeous Georgia palette, a Hollywood Glo Body Lustre , a cosmetic bag AND a coupon for a free makeover at any Benefit counter.
The palette comes in a cute cardboard with magnetic closure and contains one of Benefit’s best-sellers (Georgia face powder), two matte eyeshadows (Groundhog Day and Me, Myself & I), a lipstick (I Think I Love You), a mirror and two brushes.
The product was released as limited edition in the US earlier and retailed $28 plus tax. While the palette is pretty to look at, the colors are nothing but boring and the cardboard packaging is definitely not one of the best.
The Body Lustre, on the other hand, is a highlighting powder that comes in a cute little tin. The color is a rose with gold shimmer and you can use it anywhere for a radiant glow. Nice product but not necessary. Retails $26 plus tax at Sephora and Benefit counters.
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.
