January 2009 Archives

The 2009 SAG Awards are one of our favorite award shows simply because it’s a bit more relaxed and actors are given the opportunity to award their fellow actors. Of course, as always, we love to “ooh” and “ahh” at the gorgeous makeup and hair. This year we saw everything from beautiful updos to long, loose waves; curled tresses and flowy straight manes. We saw red lips and eyes decked out in icy shadows (eyeshadows, that is), and we loved every minute of it. Check out our favorites.

 Anne Hathaway enchanted us with a lush lash look that complimented her glossy berry stained lip. We loved her loosley tousled hair that not only screams chic, but carefree at the same time.

January Jones caught our attention, as always, with a fresh look that was both romantic and bold. With makeup to compliment her natural beauty, hairstylist Mark Townsend continued that theme by creating soft yet modern waves on the Mad Men star.

Julia Ormond glowed with radiant skin and shiny hair. We love how her full brows and big lashes made her green eyes really pop, while a soft glossy pink lip and glowing cheeks kept her look fresh.   



Taraji P. Henson wowed us again with shimmery, defined eyes and a glossy lip. And while her hair may be cut in a classic bob, we love the high shine added to keep the glamour quotient at maximum levels.

Kate Winslet is a red carpet goddess this award season, and here is another example of why. A great side-swept updo kept her looking sophisticated while shimmery eye makeup and a neutral palette of soft pinks on her cheeks and lips added just the right amount of glamour.

Jennifer Morrison never disappoints us when it comes to the red carpet. The House star’s look had an ethereal quality with loose waves and luminous makeup. Bronze and pink tones kept the look light and airy and really complimeted her white gown.

Viola Davis was the picture of glamour at the evening’s festivities. With soft curls framing her face, and subtle yet flattering makeup complimenting her skin, we were in awe of her fabulous glow.    


freida pinto sag awards 2009 2.jpgThe gorgeous Freida Pinto captivated our attention with her classic updo and flawless skin. We love the use of blue and violet toned eyeshadows to help frame her black-rimmed eyes while a rasberry hue gave her lips their glossy finish.

Miss Dior Cherie

miss dior cherie.jpgFragrance is very personal, but since we aren’t about hiding a great find, we have to share our new love of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance.This fabulous scent is girly, yet still sophisticated enough for the modern woman. Classic and chic but with a youthful twist, Miss Dior Cherie combines notes of violette, pink jasmine, soft patchouli, musk and sweet strawberry. We love the light, almost energizing feel it gives us and the sweetness is in just the right amount.

This is a modern fragrance that captures the timeless couture spirit of Dior. A new interpretation of the original Miss Dior fragrance, Miss Dior Cherie combines pure couture spirit with the audacity of youthful, playful notes for a fresh approach to a timeless classic. Notes of chic, green tangerine, violette, and pink jasmine mingle with soft patchouli, musk, and delectably sweet strawberry leaves and caramelized popcorn for a delicious scent that’s truly irresistible.

It’s time to brighten up! Your smile, that is. No one can deny that a fabulous white smile looks great on everyone, but who wants to spend hundreds of dollars to get it? You don’t have to spend a fortune these days, there are so many amazing products on the market right now. Take a look at our five favorite products to help your pearly whites look their brightest.



covergirl wetslicks amazemint lipgloss.jpgCoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint Lipglosses are on our love, must-have, can’t-live-without list. “Fake it till you make it” is a great way to describe how these glosses help create a whiter smile. Each color has a slight blue tone that will give teeth the appearance of being whiter, not to mention the minty flavor has only raised our approval rating.  $6.49,



rembrandt intense stain toothpaste2.jpgRembrandt Intense Stain Toothpaste has become our must-have toothpaste. Not  only does it deep clean our teeth the way a facial does our skin, but it gives us even more reasons to smile. Our teeth are healthy and white, and the fresh minty taste leaves us looking forward to “getting our brush on” twice a day. $7.49,



tarte enbrightenmint2.jpgTarte Embrightenmint is a double-ended, tooth-whitening wand and lip gloss product specifically designed to not only give you the whitening you want on-the-go, but the gloss makes teeth appear whiter because of its bluer tone. We love it in Pearly Pink for day and Radiant Red at night. $26




it cosmetics my youthful smile kit.jpgMy Youthful Smile by It! Cosmetics features a Smile Brightening Lip Plumping Gloss on one end, with blue based colors specially designed to counteract the appearance of yellow teeth and make your smile whiter instantly, as well as a Smile Line Wrinkle Fill cream with collagen and anti-oxidants on the other to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Available in three shades. $32,



crest whitestrips daily.jpgCrest Whitestrips Daily Whitening + Tarter Protection Strips only require five minutes of daily use to achieve beautiful pearly whites. These are fabulous if you have any sensitivity to whitening, but we really like that these give the results without the huge time commitiment. We have only been using these for a week, and already notice a difference.  $34.99, 

amarte aqua veil.jpgWith a refreshing cucumber scent and water-like feel, Amarte Aqua Veil Pure Hydrating Serum is a quick-absorbing hydrator that we can’t get enough of. We all live in different climates, but keeping moisture in our skin is always a high priority. Because it’s a humectant (contrary to the term serum), it attracts water to the skin, helping to keep it in balance. So it’s great for dry skin seeking extra moisture, as well as oily skin because it doesn’t add extra oil. We use it in addition to our regular moisturizer and our skin loves it.


Honestly, if we could slather our entire bodies with this we would, but since it doesn’t come in that big of a size, we will gladly settle for applying it to our faces, necks and decolletages each day and night. $44,

To our delight, and inspired by the upcoming film Confessions of a Shopaholic, Too Faced Cosmetics has created a beauty palette for every glamour girl on the go. We love palettes, and this one looks fabulous, not to mention it’s something to distract us while we wait in anticipation for the movie’s release on February 13.
