Get The Look: Olivia Thirlby’s Textured Wavy Bob at the Nobody Walks Premiere

At last night’s premiere, TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D. styled this leading lady for her red carpet debut. “I was inspired by Olivia’s fun, modern and flirty dress and wanted her hair to feel the same way!” John said. “Currently she has a great chin-length bob and I wanted it to appear full of texture and body.”

How-To Steps:

  • Prep towel-dried hair by spraying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion throughout the hair, then comb through to ensure even distribution.
  • Blow-dry hair using a small round brush to encourage extra volume throughout the style.
  • Create a side part and curl the hair in small sections, spraying each section once with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to lock in the wave pattern and protect hair from excess heat.
  • Curl all hair throughout the head by wrapping each section around the curling rod and holding out the ends to give the texture a modern feel. Stylist tip: the straighter ends add an edge to the style.
  • Once complete, use a small brush (I like the Acca Kappa Bristle Brush) to loosen up the waves that have set.
  • Finish by rubbing TRESemmé Smooth Anti-Frizz Secret Creme into palms and loosely scrunch into the ends of the style to add subtle definition.

Mama Mio’s Boob Tube is a truly amazing product and definitely one of my favorites from their line. Here is your chance to get a free trial size, be prepared to fall in love!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mama Mio is giving away a 10-day supply of Boob Tube (while supplies last), their cult Bust & Neck Firming cream, to help women get to know their boobs a bit better.

Mama Mio is proud to support the fight against breast cancer, but beyond the donations they make to their charity partner, Look Good… Feel Better®, they want to encourage women to become more aware of their own boobs. As with their full size Boob Tube Bust & Neck Firming Creams, these 10-day samples will come with a leaflet that contains the American Cancer Society’s instructions on how to perform a Breast Self-Exam (BSE). “Doing BSE regularly is one way for women to know how their breasts normally look and feel and to notice any changes.” cancer.org, the American Cancer Society website, last reviewed/revised 10/04/11.

MUD’s Halloween Makeup Tips – Queen Ravenna!

Ahh, Halloween…a modern-day excuse to dress like your favorite alter ego. Compliment your doppelgänger this season with standout make-up looks that are fabulously monstrous, dramatic and scary…in a good way.

Although vampires and zombies are always trending, impersonate some fresh characters inspired from this year’s hottest movies. Sean Conklin, lead make-up artist at Make-up Designory (MUD) provides expert tips that’ll leave you looking like a striking queen not a repulsive maiden.

Queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman

The fairest one of all! Recreate her enchanted look here with these easy steps:

Face: For longer-lasting make-up, evenly apply MUD’s Face Primer with a sponge or Brush 940. Next, sweep the HD Air Foundation on the entire face with a sponge or Brush 940 for an ageless appearance. To reduce the reflection on the skin, lightly dust the Loose Powder with the 510 Fan Brush.

Eyes: Queen Ravenna’s eye treatment is soft and subtle. To achieve a rich, long-lasting brow suitable for a queen, transfer the Taupe Eye Pencil onto Brush 210. Follow the natural direction of the hair to fill in the brow. To recreate the soft smoky eye, use the Taupe Eye Color with Brush 810 to completely fill in the top lid and on the outer corner of the lower lash line. Blend the hard edge with Brush 800 and drag the color outward in a wing like upward fashion. Be sure not to droop the outer corner down. Blend the lower lash line with Brush 800 to finish the smoky look. For definition, follow the upper lash line with the Black Cake Liner and Brush 100. Finish with a couple coats of Volumizing Mascara.

Cheeks: Use the Soft Peach Cheek Color to give the illusion of a softer appearance and an overall glow. With Brush 510, apply from the hairline and dust a light application downward to magically soften the shape. Next, lightly dust on the apples of the cheeks.

Lips: To complete the soft, subtle, bewitching recreation of Queen Ravenna, conjure a mixture of Rose Clay and Just Peachy Lipstick. Apply to the lips with Brush 310 and you’ll be appointed fairest one of all.
