Get The Look: Saoirse Ronan’s Romantic Updo at the SAG Awards

Love her and if you haven’t seen Brooklyn yet, GO SEE IT. Such a beautiful, romantic story with amazing acting. I can’t wait to see it again.

Get The Look: Saoirse Ronan at the SAG Awards

THE LOOK: A voluminous textured top knot that was romantic and whimsical.

INSPIRATION:
Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel gave Saoirse a beautiful top knot for tonight’s SAG Awards. “I was inspired by the sleek and modern dress and I wanted a statuesque yet carefree undone updo that sat at the crown,” he says.

How To Get The Look:

I applied NEW John Frieda Luxurious Volume® Perfectly Full™ Mousse all over the roots through mid-shaft on towel dried hair. I then hand dried the hair and took a large round brush to create a soft voluminous blowout.
Then I used a 1 1/4″ curling on large sections of hair to create random waves and texture.
Next, I took a comb and teased the roots of her hair and pulled it loosely into a top ponytail leaving some height around the front.
Then I took the ponytail and back combed it prior to wrapping it around in a big deconstructed bun and pinning it in place.
I locked the look down with NEW John Frieda Luxurious Volume® Forever Full® Hairspray.
I made sure some pieces fell around the hairline for a more whimsical and romantic effect.

The Newest Face of COVERGIRL Is…..

CG Z LAUNCH 2016

Today, COVERGIRL, the brand known for rocking your unique kind of beautiful, is thrilled to announce Zendaya as the fresh new face. Known for redefining standards of what it means to be authentic and ‘do you’ in a too-perfectly curated social media world, Zendaya stands for individuality and the unique definitions of beauty that go along with it.

Zendaya broke the news first on her Instagram page and featured behind the scenes footage from her first ever COVERGIRL shoot, and another image was then shared on COVERGIRL’s Instagram page. Her first COVERGIRL TV spot will air live at the 58th Annual GRAMMYs, and will feature a new line up of COVERGIRL products including Plumpify Mascara by LashBlast Pro, truNAKED Eyeshadow Palette and Liners, and Oh Sugar Lip Balm.

 

I think Zendaya is a great choice, a beautiful and talented young woman. Can’t wait to see her campaigns.


Osmosis Cashmere Matte Longwear Lipstick

CYMERA_20160119_142029

Finally a long lasting lipstick that lives up to its promises. Osmosis has cracked the code on a lipstick that lasts for hours even through eating and drinking!  I love that this feels so good on my lips and doesn’t dry them out like some longwear lipsticks do. The color lasts a surprisingly long time and as it does fade its very natural so my lips still have a flush of pink. I have the First Kiss shade and I love the pale pink shade, perfect match for a dark smoky, eye.
