Get it girl, get it get it girl. Gwen Stefani’s digital (as in nails) collaboration with OPI debuts January 2014. The limited edition collection includes seven new shades in a variety of finishes including semi-matte satin and a new chrome one that requires a special base. As always, OPI puts their signature clever moniker spin on the polishes - “Over and Over A-Gwen?” Yes, please.
Jennifer Lawrence continued to rock her pretty pixie and popped with pink lips at last night’s LA premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire; that much was clear… and so was her Dior dress!
J-Law jumped on the sheer trend bandwagon with a sheer diaphanous gown over a dark
bodysuit unitard. Love or loathe? Personally, of the 23-year-old Oscar winner’s Catching Fire global premiere frocks, it’s not my favorite; I much prefer this navy strapless number from the Madrid premiere that still incorporates the sheer trend without being, well, so sheer.
I have stick-straight, flat tresses which, while the object of envy for some, have ZERO volume on their own. I’ll give almost any hair product with the word “plump,” “volumizing,” “fat” or “big” in it and probably have. But when I asked my longtime stylist Caitlin what SHE recommends for beefing up my mane, she said to go old-school ’80s with mousse (!). Ever since, I’ve always kept a tall bottle on-hand for when I do my own blow-outs like I did to prep for a business meeting recently. Squirt a generous amount into the palm of your hand on on still-damp hair and work into roots. Blow-dry and style with a metal roundbrush. I like Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler, which can be found at your local drugstore. Bonus for animal lovers: Nexxus is a cruelty-free brand.
For a sleeker look, I like using Organix Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blowout Cream, made with hydrating argan oil, which can also be found at your local drugstore and is also cruelty-free. I use a quarter-sized amount and work from roots to ends. Mega bonus points: the cream smells delightful.
It exists! Beauty sites and blogs have been abuzz about the next addition to Urban Decay’s much-revered Naked eyeshadow palettes, Naked 3. And from the looks of the pics posted, some issued by Urban Decay, 3 will feature rose-hued neutrals. I’m undecided about jumping on the pre-order list for this one. I love the Naked 2 palette which I nabbed earlier this year, and have dabbled in rosegold shadow before because warm gold-tinged colors tend to be complimentary on tan/olive skin. But purely pinky-based hues tend to make me look like a True Blood cast member and not the warm-blooded kind. Will you get Naked?
