Turquiose Beauty

Pantone recently announced their pick for color of the year, setting off a flurry of tweets on Twitter and excited reaction from the beauty and fashion-loving set. The color creating the buzz is 15-559 Turquoise. Turquoise was chosen because it is bold yet soothing; it produces thoughts of exotic locations, and is universally flattering on both men and women. Because of its versatility, Turquoise also makes a gorgeous accent color in the form of jewelry, purses, shoes, hair accessories and even nail polish.

It just so happens that Kerry Malouf (celebrity makeup artist to Emmy Rossum, Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Goodwin and others) suggested a great one to us that we had to pass along.

Kerri says: “Makeup palettes make for great holiday gifts! These amazing Luscious Lip Palettes from Nyx Cosmetics are the perfect stocking stuffer for all women— the busy mom, beauty lovers, college student. They provide a combination of high-pigment color mixed with high shine gloss, so you can mix and match, highlight and shade— for the perfect pout!”

Two she recommends most:


Champagne Sparkle:

“The shades work well for the holiday festivities. Mix the glitter glosses with the coral and raspberry shades for added sparkle and shine!”

This Thanksgiving we’re thankful for our families, our friends, warm sweaters and hot cocoa on chilly nights. We’re thankful for you, our readers, and the opportunity to cover the best in style and beauty as a job. Of course, we can’t help but be thankful for the products we use everyday. After all, they keep our makeup in place, give our skin the hydration it needs and accentuate our most positive features. These are the products we’re most thankful for this year (and every day of the year).


twilight_makeup.jpgSharp fangs may be what vampires are best known for, but thanks to Twilight, it’s their stunning appearance that always seems to captivate the attention of the saga’s millions of fans; skin that glistens and blood-red lips are complemented by magnetic eyes and a barely-there flush, creating a look that is both innocent and yet dangerous.
