Jennifer-Morrison-Red-Hair.jpgThe always-blonde Jennifer Morrison made quite a big change last week—she dyed her hair a shade of dark, gorgeous red.

We are personally loving her new look. She’s gorgeous as a blonde, of course, but the new color really brings with it sophistication and drama. And since she also dyed her eyebrows to match, she shows a strong commitment to the color.

Jennifer went to certified Great Lengths stylists Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee of Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood to get the look for her new movie, Some Girls. Of the look, they said, “Since Jen is only planning on being a redhead for a month or so, we added in Great Lengths Extensions to help make the color look richer and more vibrant. She looks stunning!”

What do you think of Jennifer’s new look? Let us know in the comments!

Benefit-Posietint.jpgWhen someone tells us there’s a blush/eyeshadow/lipgloss/etc that works for everyone, we tend to roll our eyes. Everyone? Every skin tone? Really? But then we discovered Benefit Posietint.

This blush actually, really, honestly DOES work for every skin tone. It’s the prettiest shade of pink that adds a hint of color to your cheeks and lips (and even your eyes, if you’re so brave). We love the consistency, too—rather than being a weird powder that clings unflatteringly to the skin, this is an easy-to-use-and-blend liquid.

And, in case you’re worried about going overboard, a little goes a long way. Three tiny flicks of the brush upon the cheekbones and a quick bit of blending and you’re good to go! Your cheeks are guaranteed to look like you’ve just come in from the cold and have a gorgeous, rosy glow. What could be better?

Benefit Posietint retails for $29 at sephora.com.

‘2 Broke Girls’ star Beth Behrs hit the red carpet with the perfect smokey eye look recently and the credit all goes to makeup artist Jamie Greenberg and mark cosmetics. Her use of an indigo blue eyeliner softened the look up just enough for the perfect spring style.

She started by applying mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Latte to the crease of Beth’s eye. Following with mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Surreal to Beth’s top and bottom lash lines. Lastly she applied mark No Place To Run Longwear Eyeliner to Beth’s inside water rim and smudged the same liner in Indigo Girl underneath her lash line for a gorgeous hint of blue that really brought out her eyes. The look was finished off with two coats of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara.

China-Glaze-Luxe-And-Lush.jpgWant to give your nails a gorgeous, super luxe finishing touch? Then China Glaze Luxe and Lush Nail Polish is your saving grace.

This nail polish is part of the brand’s Colours from the Capitol collection, which was inspired by The Hunger Games. Luxe and Lush is meant to represent District 1, which is responsible for providing luxury goods to the Capitol.

We can honestly say we’ve never seen another shade like this one! We love using it as a topcoat, because the various sizes of glittering, gleaming particles make such a unique impression upon other colors. Because of the different sizes of the glitter, every nail will be completely different. And, for being a glitter polish, it’s actually surprisingly easy to remove!

China Glaze Luxe and Lush Nail Polish retails for $5.99 at sallybeauty.com.
