September 2011 Archives

NY Fashion Week is upon us! We’re loving some of the beauty looks that have been featured this week. First up is the hair that Didier Malige for Frederic Fekkai created for Prabal Gurung.

Malige created a bold and sexy ’90s-inspired look that perfectly complemented Gurung’s neo feminist collection. The confident and sporty look was both feminine and tough, with models looking like they just splashed water on their faces after a workout.

Want to get the look? Begin by blowdrying your hair straight and use a flat iron if necessary. Then mist water throughout the top half of your head before applying Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse to wet hair for extra hold. Create a center part with a fine comb and comb mousse through the hair for a slicked-back look. Get additional shine with Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist, use the low setting on a blowdryer to set the look, and then leave the bottom portion of the hair dry. Finish by spraying with Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.

Eye-Sheet-Mask-Image.jpgHave you ever had a sleepless night that results in eyes that look completely ghastly in the morning? We’re talking dark circles, bags, puffiness, the works. Well, luckily, there are sheet masks out there developed just for the under-eye area that are guaranteed to get rid of these problems in a flash! Check out our favorites.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask
If your under-eye area is looking and feeling dehydrated, oxygen is the way to go. Luckily, the twin chambers of this sheet mask deploy to bring forth tons of just that.

emma-watson-09072011.jpgIt’s hard not to be jealous of Emma Watson, she has quite a lot going for herself these days. But it’s not the killer career and amazing sense of style (as well as friends in the right places to fuel the style) that gets me the most green, it’s her amazing cuteness! She has this killer pixie cut that looks absolutely stunning on her, yet if I tried it, it would make me look a 12-year-old boy’s head had been plucked up and plopped on my body. 

Watching it grow out, I’m really digging how she wears it in a sleek style that usually tucks behind her ear, like she did in this pic at the 2011 GQ Men of the Year Award. What’s refreshing about Emma is that she clearly knows what looks good on her and has a fierce style determination that has been enjoyable to watch unfold.
Lady-Gaga-Harpers-Bazaar.jpgWant to see a barefaced Lady Gaga? Then be sure to pick up the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, which features the star both on the cover and inside the magazine with next to no makeup!

“Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” she told the magazine. She went on to talk about her relationship with the public and how they perceive her look, saying, “I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me.”

We think it’s fairly obvious that Gaga is free-spirited, and she agrees! She confessed to the magazine, “Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.” Gaga does yoga, Bikram, runs, eats healthy, dances … “I keep in shape by working hard,” she said.

The October issue of Harper’s Bazaar will be on newsstands September 27. See more from the photo shoot here.

I’m a designer fanatic, so I was more than elated when I found the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating lipstick. Don’t let the word lipstick fool you, this baby packs sheer shine and a light, glossy feel in a standard lipstick formula that goes on perfectly every time. It looks great worn on its own or over other colors for a glossy layer.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating lipstick retails for $32 at
