New Contest! #OnMyWay2Fab Prize Package

Did you watch the People’s Choice Awards last night? Kat and Beth made a great hosting team. I usually find award shows dialogue so corny but thought this pair embraced the corny and made it work.

On the red carpet fashion! White dresses were the look of the night, so many great white dresses but there was a definite winner. Jessica Alba went with the white dress look but fit and detail were outstanding. Her hair and makeup were both spot on and I thought she looked gorgeous. Who was your favorite of the night?

Banish Dry Winter Skin With Tree Hut’s Shea Sugar Body Scrubs

TH_Scrub_HK_500

The cold winter weather has been doing a number on my skin. And no matter how much lotion I use my skin has still felt a little blah.  I decided it was time to bring in the big guns and opened a tub of Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub and it was just the TLC my skin needed.

CYMERA_20140108_195629

As you can see this is a really thick, rich scrub. The scents are amazing I love them all but Hawaiian Kukui and Tropical Mango are my absolute favorites. The scrub has just the right amount of grit to buff away dead skin without being too harsh. I love the shea element it makes the scrub so hydrating and my legs and skin feel amazing after I use it.

The best part has to be the price if there was no label I would guess this was a high end spa scrub but luckily it retails for under $8. These would make a great gift in a gift basket or just the perfect way to spoil yourself with a spa day at home.

National Bubble Bath Day

vintage-bubble-bath-beauty

Bubble Bath Day is here again! Today, Wednesday, January 8th is National Bubble Bath Day and there is nothing like a warm bath to forget about the polar vortex outside.

To help celebrate grab a bottle of Neutrogena Rainbath® Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel.

6861030_600x600

My kids and I all love taking bubble baths and I love finding great products that are affordable and safe on all our skin. I have used Rainbath before but honestly never tried it as a bubble bath and I am really impressed with how well it works. It created really rich, silky bubbles with just a pump of product. I love how great the bath smells and how smooth it leaves my skin.

I also used it to shave my legs with and it worked awesome for that as well. Just a tiny drop and I was able to coat my whole leg and get a really close, nick free shave. And my skin feels absolutely wonderful. I tried the Original scent and loved it now I’m excited to try out their other scents!

Neutrogena Rainbath® Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel
Available in Original, Pear & Green Tea and Grapefruit, Rainbath® creates a rich, conditioning lather with ingredients that leave skin feeling irresistibly clean, smooth and refreshed. Rainbath® can even be applied as a skin-softening shaving gel for legs, helping save time and money on unnecessary products.

While soaking away in your bath, give your hair a treat too with Neutrogena’s new Triple Repair Hair Collection. I am hooked on the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask. I have used hundreds of hair masks in my life and this is in the top 5 if you factor in how affordable it is, I would have to say number 1.

The Triple Repair Hair Collection three-step system features a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment which penetrates deep into hair to repair and maximize strength from the inside out. Triple Repair is clinically proven to make hair up to three times stronger after just one use and the Leave-In Treatment protects hair up to 400 degrees!

You can purchase Neutrogena products at your local drugstore or mass retailer or online at www.neutrogena.com.

Get The Look: Lucy Hale in her first-ever music video

LucyHaleVideo

Get The Look from Lucy Hale’s Music Video from Celebrity Makeup Artist Kelsey Deenihan:

Celebrity Makeup Artist Kelsey Deenihan created fresh, effortless beauty look for Lucy Hale in her first-ever music video, which debuted tonight on the season premiere of Pretty Little Liars.

“To achieve the effortless look I kept the palette very monochromatic sticking to all peachy nudes,” Kelsey Deenihan said.

Face: I started by prepping the skin with Murad Hydrodynamic Moisturizer all over Lucy’s face and neck and then applying Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in a mixture of shade 5 and 5.5. By applying the base directly after moisturizer it allows the foundation to mix with the moisturizer and create a sheer coverage. The sheer fresh coverage is what we wanted since we’re not going for an over the top glamours look.

Cheeks: On Lucy’s cheeks I applied Mark. Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in both Nude and Peachy to add a bit of a flush to the skin. I applied the tint straight from the stick to the cheeks and then blended where needed with my finger. To add some additional glow to the cheeks I used the Mark. That’s Brilliant Face and Eye Illuminator on the cheekbones. This product comes with its own brush, however, I squeezed some of the illuminator onto the back of my hand and dipped a sponge in it to apply it to Lucy’s cheekbones. By dabbing onto the cheeks with a sponge I was able to place the product on top of the blush tint and not move around any existing color.

Eyes: I filled in Lucy’s already full brows with Votre Vu Arch de Triumph eyebrow definer in Warm. I wanted to give them a bold shape to really frame her eyes. Staying with the neutral colors, I used Mark. On the Dot Neutral Eye Color Compact for Lucy’s eyes. I used the bottom three colors of the palette and blended the metallic colors together. I started with the bottom right color all over the lids and crease and then went back in with the bottom middle and left colors in the outer corners and crease to add definition to the eyes. I placed Mark. No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Foxy Brown on the top and bottom lash line and blended it with a small dome brush to avoid any harsh lines. I topped off the eyes with Mark. Scanda Lash Mascara in Black on both the top and bottom lashes.

Lips: Lucy’s lips were very natural for this look but I wanted to give them a small hint of color. I used Mark. Make it Rich Lip Color Crayon in Punch and applied it very lightly to give just a little tint to her natural lips. No gloss or liner were used to avoid looking to dolled up for this day out in the country.
