For the ‘Total Recall’ premiere actress McKenzie Westmore pulled of one of my favorite eye makeup combinations. A shimmery pink lid paired with a thin eyeliner and thick, lush lashes. This is one of those great combos that works day or night (simply tame down the mascara for daytime). To copy her shadow look for pink, shimmery, loose powder shadows like Bare Escentuals’s bareMinerals Eyecolor in Vanilla Sugar or MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Powder in Pink Gold. Achieving her precision-perfect lined eyes requires a steady hand (translation: practice) and a thin tipped brush with liquid liner, my fave is Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. Lastly for mascara you want a formula that ensure you will get every last lash, so look to one like Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes.
Alicia Keys decided to take her new single’s advice and make every day ‘A New Day’ by cutting of her hair. She took to Twitter, via Instagram, and declared, “Look what I done did!!;-))) its an #aknewday in EVERY way!!!! ;-))))” and showed off her new ‘do. 

In classic Alicia Keys fashion her new hairstyle is completely versatile. As she showed in the pic above, she can rock it wavy, slicked back or styled as classic, sleek bob.
For Halle Berry, achieving the perfect pink lip color is actually a lesson in removal. She explained to InStyle magazine, “To make lips look naturally pink, I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss.” Halle always looks so effortlessly beautiful that I can totally see how she’s made this trick work for her. I’ll be trying it myself, what about you? 
Ashley-Tisdale-Purple-Hair.jpgIt seems another celebrity has dipped her toe—or shall we say her hair?—in the crazy colored hair waters. Ashley Tisdale showed up at the premiere of Step Up Revolution in Los Angeles last week sporting her normal blonde, but with a bold addition—purple streaks!

We’re actually really loving this look on Ashley. It’s cool, it’s modern, and it’s just enough to make a statement without overpowering her or making her look crazy.

Or you can chalk your hair! Just make sure to use soft pastels. And, above all, have fun! That’s what this look is all about.
Anne Hathaway is appearing in the new Les Miserables movie and as part of her preparation for the role she decided she wanted to chop her hair off. I think the look is bold and brazen and actually looks very sweet on Ms. Hathaway. For her it took some getting used to, she explained in a recent interview that she cried hysterically after doing it. The fun part of having hair this short is learning to vary your styles. You can wear it simple and swept a bit to the side like she did here, or work some styling mud or wax through it and give it some texture and oomph. The trick to drastic hair styles is to remember, it’s only hair, it WILL grow back. That said, I really wish I had the nerve to go that short!
