Steal the Look: Chrissy Teigen at the Academy Awards

Steal the Look: Chrissy Teigen at the Academy Awards

For last night’s Oscars red carpet, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen gave the always-gorgeous Chrissy Teigen a bold lip and a soft, romantic face. Her dress was bold, gorgeous and floral, so keeping her face soft complimented the rest of her look perfectly. Here’s how to get the look. First, Lauren groomed Chrissy’s brows with Votre Vu Brow Wax. Next, Lauren applied the soft pink shade (#2) from Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Emerald Cut to Chrissy’s lids and then coated her lashes with Avon Mega Effects Mascara. To create Chrissy’s natural, sun-kissed glow, Lauren used a YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation and then brushed on a Lorac Bronzer. To complete the look, Lauren gave Chrissy a bold lip—she applied...

Finding the right foundation (everywhere!): Avon’s new MagiX Cashmere Advanced Liquid Foundation

Finding the right foundation (everywhere!): Avon’s new MagiX Cashmere Advanced Liquid Foundation

Tonight, my dear friend Marina and I have a lady date – our goal? A professional bra fitting (and probably a few too many glasses of wine). I can’t speak for Marina, but I’ve never gone for a professional fitting myself, and the knowledge that 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra is giving me serious cause for pause (or increased interest, I can’t decide). I’m sort of hoping to be wearing the wrong size — at 36A, I’ve long had issues finding my favorite styles in my size — but at the same time, I’m frightened to discover that my true size may be yet smaller. Imagine if I’m actually a AA? That’s virtually a training bra. No wonder I can’t pin down a man. But regardless of my results...

Get the Look: Julie Bowen in Avon at SAG Awards

Get the Look: Julie Bowen in Avon at SAG Awards

I have a big girl crush on Julie Bowen — and I think she had a major attack of sexy going on tonight with that sultry leather dress and bold eye. Makeup artist Heather Currie went for a subtly sexy cat eye and a soft, romantic pink lip, using Avon Be Blushed Cheek Color in Powder Pink on the apples of her cheeks, Avon Irresistibly Sexy Eyeshadow Palette in Bombshell to bring depth and smokiness to Julie’s eyes and added a little shimmer to pick up the glimmer of the jewels on Julie’s dress. The inner rims of Julie’s eyes were lined with Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Cosmic Brown, and the tops of her eyelids with Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Black. She then smudged the black liner into Julie’s eyeshadow to create a subtle cat eye and...

Embracing the holidays (without going to the poor house)

Embracing the holidays (without going to the poor house)

The holidays are a scary time — and I’m not just talking about the hurricane roaring around us, all but canceling Halloween for the northeast. Most of us are going to spend (way) more on holiday purchases this year compared to last. In fact, according to Alexa von Tobel, founder and CEO of LearnVest.com, 40% of us are going to go way over budget — and, in fact, many of us are still paying off debt from LAST YEAR’s holidays as we spend more money on this year’s season! If you’re planning to put even more under the tree this year, I think a good goal is to make sure you don’t end the holiday season with a chunk of funds missing from your savings account. (Especially if you are like the majority of us and live pay check to...

Want to support BCA without spending money (or buying pink)? I’ve got you covered.

Want to support BCA without spending money (or buying pink)? I’ve got you covered.

You guys, I GET IT. Personally, I love all things pink and even if breast cancer awareness wasn’t an incredibly important cause, pink would be everywhere around me. (Don’t believe me? Just check out my Pinterest.) But I hear you — I hear that some of you see October and scream pink-washing. I hear that some companies will sell you a pink garbage pail and not actually give a rat’s butt about supporting the cause. And, I also hear that you have the best intentions but may not actually want to buy any pink products. Or, you are broke and can’t really buy ANY products of ANY color right now. I want to take this moment to tell you that you can support breast cancer awareness in many other ways that won’t cost you a scent. This is an...

Donate on eBay (and score major bragging rights)

Donate on eBay (and score major bragging rights)

I grew up dreaming of that quintessential moment in the spotlight…at a time when I probably was too young to even have such thoughts. For instance, behold this picture at left my brother just texted. It was taken when I was around 10 years old – my parents were taking pix of something going on in the room and I jumped in front of the camera to block their view and make the photo all about me. I like to think I’ve grown up a bit since then – at least, I HOPE so – 20 years has passed! — and while I still do want to do something that MATTERS, I finally realize you can take an action and do something that’s really significant and feel good (and have fun) without it being ABOUT you. I think of this a lot lately, when I’ve...
