Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30

Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30

  As pale as I am, it’s always been really difficult to find product shading that really works for my complexion. This week, I was asked to try out a product from the Estee Lauder Double Wear line — I chose the Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup — and use it to keep me gorgeous for a key moment. It was a week that included me hardly leaving my apartment at all (cue post tax return mental meltdown), so my eventual re-entry to the world was this weekend, for the seder at my parents’ house. Happy holidays, to all, by the way, and I hope whatever you are celebrating, you are enjoying lots of delicious food and family time this weekend! Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup is a foundation with clinically proven staying...

Don’t Miss The #EyeBooster Twitter Party This Thursday 3/26!

Don’t  Miss The #EyeBooster Twitter Party This Thursday 3/26!

In some areas of life, bigger is better. This may or may not apply to menfolk — the jury is out — but when it comes to hair, be it my lashes or my locks, I totally agree. This weekend, I tried out the new Physicians Formula Instant Extensions kit , which promises to transform lashes dramatically in just two minutes, and I loved it. As someone who has gone through the expense (both time and money!) of lash extensions in the past, I’m into any option that gives me beautiful lashes without all the work or money. Here’s how this works: 1 – Straightforward enough, you sweep on last boosting mascara; this is to prep for fibers and layer on the lash-boosting ingredients 2 – Gently tap the “extensions” brush to release any...

Oscars Recap: Going #BehindtheGlow With Neutrogena

Oscars Recap: Going #BehindtheGlow With Neutrogena

The average award show evening will find me in my pjs, bottle of wine at my side, snarking along with my friends on Twitter as we watch the red carpet starlets go by. This weekend was a special case in that I had the opportunity to spend the most important award evening of the year — the Academy Awards — at a party with some dear friends. My sister friend Bryce Gruber and I teamed up to host an intimate viewing party at our very favorite hotel in the city, Langham Place New York at Fifth Avenue — I love them so much I just featured them this month in Nashville Lifestyles Magazine as THE spot to stay and spa (and eat!) during a visit to NYC. With the Langham as our setting, the stage was already set for glamour, and we had ten or so of our friends...

Steal the Look: Margot Robbie at the Academy Awards

Steal the Look: Margot Robbie at the Academy Awards

Blondes continue to just have more fun, and Margot Robbie looked hotter than ever on the  red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards. The Australian actress, a presenter last night, was gorgeous in a black Saint Laurent dress, a vintage Van Cleef & Arpels necklace and fiery orange-red lips. “We were inspired by old Hollywood glamour and wanted to make a statement,” says makeup artist Tyron Macchausen. “It’s the Oscars after all.” Tyron began by prepping the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to ensure a flawless makeup application. He then used Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Honey & Beige on her skin and Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Sand under the eyes. He then lightly contoured with Hourglass Ambient...

Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards

Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards

The stars were out full force last night for the Academy Awards, the biggest red carpet of the award season. Celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton gave Gina Rodriguez a sophisticated and timeless up do for the 2015 Academy Awards. “Gina’s hair is versatile, she can look great with any hairstyle but today we wanted to give her a glamorous look for the Oscars,” said Norton. Here’s how to steal the look: First, Norton prepped damp hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz-Immunity Primer to create a foundation for a frizz-free hairstyle in the not-frizz-friendly LA weather.  After blowing out her hair with a round brush, Norton divided her hair into two sections, from ear to ear, clipping the back part out of the way and set hot rollers to the...

Steal the Look: Katy Perry at the Super Bowl Half Time Show

Whether you are into football or not — there’s no judgement here! – chances are you tuned in to see the half-time show, starring Katy Perry! Katy’s celeb makeup artist, the amazing Jake Bailey, created her look, and shares his beauty breakdown right here, so you can steal the look at home! “Today is one of the most exciting days of my career!” says Bailey.  “Knowing my work would be seen by millions and millions of people I’ve been understandably nervous. Katy’s performance had multiple costume changes so I needed to create a strong look that would complement all of her outfits, as there was absolutely no time for a touch up in between the quick changes. It’s the Super Bowl after all!” ” I decided...

Steal the Look: Julie Bowen at the SAG Awards

Steal the Look: Julie Bowen at the SAG Awards

Award season continues, and last night, the stars came out for the SAG Awards (good thing it wasn’t in snowy New York!). Makeup artist Heather Currie created the look for Neutrogena brand ambassador (and star of Modern Family!), Julie Bowen. “My makeup inspiration came from Julie Bowen’s gorgeous couture dress. I knew the palette was a soft beige and pink combination so I wanted Julie’s cheeks and lips to have a similar light hue,” says Currie. Currie started by applying Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, and then Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup to Julie’s skin with a wet sponge. “I like to apply the foundation this way because it keeps the skin looking natural yet flawless,” says Currie. “For her eyes, I...

Steal the Look: Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes

Steal the Look: Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes

Tonight for the Golden Globes, Emily Blunt’s look was created makeup artist Jenn Streicher for Kiehl’s and Dior Beauty. “Emily is wearing a gorgeous white Michael Kors dress with to-die-for jewels by Lorraine Schwartz – both the dress and jewels were custom made just for Emily. I can’t remember the last time Emily wore white on the red carpet! Because she just returned from a sunny get-away, her skin was perfectly bronzed for a white gown. And because we decided to have her hair loosely back I wanted her makeup to be soft and ethereal and just a pop of color on the lips to bring out the jewels,” says Streicher. “The first and most important step is prepping the skin. I started with Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye Treatment...
