On of our favorite looks this season was the fierce, bad girl beauty at Tony Cohen’s Fall 2010 collection. The look was comprised of a chic french twist, toughened up by messy roots and sewed in leather… adding seriously smoky-eye drama for a “You’d better notice me, but don’t you DARE mess with me” look.

Tony_Cohen_Runway_0dbb.jpgTo get the hair: Staci Child for Cutler prepped hair with Cutler Volumizing Spray for texture, then massaged Cutler Definition Paste into the top of head to give hair a dirty, unfinished look, like “she’s done it herself”. She then pulled hair into a french twist and weaved leather cord into it to compliment the lines of the collection, finishing with Redken Workforce 9.

204.JPGTo get the makeup: Napoleon Perdis wanted a tough-chic, “opera goes to the club” look with a strong eye. He prepped skin with a peptide serum, then misted skin with his own airbrush foundation. The eye was done in a shades of charcoal and black for smoke, and blended out with a terracotta shade for a “hint of romance” into a square shape with focus on the inner bridge. Perdis then groomed brows with a touch of Suede pencil, and coated lips with Devine Goddess l/s in Lianna, a beautiful nude that Perdis told me was inspired by his daughter. Final touches included a dab of gloss in Hot Toffee, and a spritz of facial spray to give a dewy look.

So simple, so chic, major badass.
New York Fashion Week is upon us, and tonight was the annual Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection Celebrity Fashion Show.

Seventeen designers created dresses that were walked down the runway by some of the biggest names in entertainment, to promote awareness of heart disease in women. Between the amazing one of a kind designs, and the star power (Joan Collins!!!)…once we were able to pick our jaws up off of the floor, we noticed that the makeup and hair was pretty brilliant as well, courtesy of Jimmy Paul for Bumble & Bumble, and the incomparable Bobbi Brown. Here are some of our faves:

Heart_Truth_92d5.jpgA standout was a flawless Kim Kardashian, who paired her dramatic Marchesa with a slicked back, loose wave style that cascaded down her back, bronzed glowing skin, nude lips, and smokey eyes. Gorgeous!

Heidi Klum, ikept it simple and pretty with her trademark center part, and fresh makeup.

Totally coveting Pauley Perette’s heavy rimmed eyes and rocker bangs.

Felicity Huffman was stunning (seriously, so pretty in person!) in hair that was waved, then pinned and a silver smokey eye that made her blues pop.

We saw Jordin Sparks arrive with a head of tight spiral curls; by showtime they were magically transformed into this sleek, shiny style, complimented by a face of fresh pinks and plums.

Heart_Truth_152d.jpgAnd lastly, the ever gorgeous Kimora Lee, who was rocking decidedly understated (for her) ironed hair and light makeup.

During award season the Grammys give us a break from the actors (well most of them, at least) and let us focus on seeing our favorite music stars shine. At last night’s celebration we saw many looks — these are our absolute favorites of the night.



pink_grammys2010.bmpWith her hair adorned with a pretty star pin, our favorite rocker chick Pink took on a softer look with gorgeous flushed pink cheeks and lips, a fabulous complement to her very pretty lashed-out eye look.


nicole_kidman_grammys2010.jpgNicole Kidman looks great as a blonde, but we are loving that she’s gone back to her natural red hue. To compliment her fair complexion, her makeup was kept light and dewy with a pretty pink lip color finished her look— gorgeous!


carrie_underwood_grammys2010.jpgCarrie Underwood can do no wrong in our book when it comes to hair and makeup. She recently had her tresses cut, and we love it. With a side-swept part and amazing highlights (who does her color? we’d love to know), the country superstar opted to go with her signature smoky eye look and glossy nude lip.


rihanna_grammys2010.jpgWhile we’re not huge fan’s of the hairstyle Rihanna chooses to rock, we admit it’s growing on us. The edgy musical darling softened her look up a bit for the night with icy white shadow and lots of long lashes.



jenniferlopez_grammys2010.bmpJennifer Lopez has enough experience under her belt to know what works for her. Soft, voluminous waves and a fierce smoky eye are nothing new for her, but we still think she looks amazing.



ciara_grammys2010.jpgHaving amazing skin is the first step to always having makeup look its best. Case in point, Ciara. The songstress could have gone completely bare-faced and looked amazing. Instead her makeup artist complimented her flawless skin with perfectly groomed brows and frosty pink lip.



taylor_swift_grammys2010.bmpEven with an updo, Taylor Swift kept her look youthful and elegant. We love her winged-out liner and bright pink lips that were a fabulous contrast to her blue sequined gown.



lea_michele_grammys2010.bmpLea Michele has made our list of faves for the SAG awards and the Golden Globes, and for good reason— she always looks fantastic. At the Grammys the Glee star upped the ante by going with a more bold eye look and shiny, sleek locks.



adam_lambert_grammys2010.bmpWe had to put Adam Lambert on our list. Why not? The guy always rocks the best eye makeup look.

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards are special in that it’s industry pros showing love for their peers. It’s a fun night we love to see that celebrates the talent and amazing work put on TV and film. We watch to see how our favorite actress will be wearing their hair and makeup, of course— take a look at our favorites of the night, and see if you agree.


penelope_cruz_2010sagawards.bmpPenelope Cruz didn’t really wow us at last week’s Golden Globes, but we were loving the soft, flowing hair and signature eye makeup at the SAG awards.


lea_michele_2010sagawards.bmpLea Michele made our list of picks once again with her strong brows and nude lip look. This time around, the Glee star wore her hair in a more casual way, opting for shiny, soft curls.


sandra_bullock_2010sagawards.bmpSandra Bullock wore her hair quite simple, but her skin looked amazing and her makeup was flawless. Shimmery pink shadow, beautifully smudged liner and glossy lip kept the award-winner looking radiant.


kate_hudson_2010sagawards.bmpIn more of a natural makeup look, Kate Hudson was stunning and couldn’t have looked better. We loved the soft texture of her updo that was the perfect compliment to her amazing backless gown.


mo'nique_2010sag.jpgMo’Nique wore her hair down with a soft flip and also chose a more natural makeup look, sticking to bronze tones that added the right amount of depth and definition to her face. The Precious star kept emphasis on her beautiful eyes with some false lashes and perfectly groomed brows.


diane_kruger_2010sagawards.bmpIn the sea of defined eyes and nude lips, Diane Kruger stood out with her bronzed eyes and red lips; her braided updo was a great compliment for her asymmetrical gown.


rutina_wesley_2010sagawards.jpgKohl-rimmed eyes and lots of lashes gave Rutina Wesley a much more glamorous, dolled-up look than True Blood fans are used to seeing. With her hair in a simple bun, her sparkling necklace lit up her face, complimenting bronze-toned cheeks and glossy lips.


kyra_sedgwick_2010sagawards.jpgKyra Sedgwick kept her makeup look shimmer-free and it worked beautifully. We loved the soft pink cheeks and lips that didn’t compete with her more dramatic eye makeup.

Many looks caught our eyes at this year’s Golden Globe awards. From hair in everything from loose waves to simple updos and makeup that enhanced each stars natural beauty, these looks were not only our favorites, but will also be the inspiration for the spring season ahead.




kate_hudson_goldenglobes2010.jpgKate Hudson’s classic updo was simply OK, but her makeup was fabulous. Black-rimmed eyes, bronze cheeks and pretty peach lips were a flawless compliment to her amazing white gown.



christina_aguilera.jpgChristina Aguilera was a stunner with her sleek bob and glowing skin. Her smoky grey eye makeup enhanced her blue eyes gorgeously and the look was completed with a glossy pink lip.



Julia Roberts knows how to rock the loose waves. And we, of course, love them on her. The newly appointed Lancome spokeswoman flashed her beloved smile and reminded us why we love seeing her on the red carpet.



Zoe Saldana kept her makeup in the same color family as her gown without actually matching it. We love the sheer wash of mauve on her cheeks and kohl-rimmed eyes.



Lea Michele absolutely wowed us with her glamorous, yet understated, look that was all about lashes, lashes, and more lashes.



helen_mirren_goldenglobes2010.bmpWith glossy pink lips and her hair in volumized waves, Helen Mirren was the picture of timeless and glamorous beauty.



Drew Barrymore couldn’t have looked better Sunday night. Her simple updo was the best complement for her gorgeous, glowing skin, enhanced with a subtle smoky eye and red lipstick.



Newcomer Anna Kendrick grabbed our attention with her soft, romantic look. We loved the loose tendrils falling from her loose updo and her full lashes really stood out against the light eyeshadow, making her eyes pop. Shimmery pink gloss added a pretty finishing touch.
