Hot Mama!

For Jessica Alba’s “modern goddess” look, hairstylist Robert Ramos created a braided updo that was “beautiful and movie star-esque, but still edgy and stylish.” Add her golden eyes and glowing skin, and the expectant star is truly divine.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow

What it is:
This is the product Urban Decay was born to make – their best-seller! A pigment-rich eyeshadow.

What it is formulated to do:
The shadow is loaded with color, with very few binders (the stuff that holds shadow together), resulting in beautiful color that blends easily and lasts. Lots of finishes to suit your mood: sparkle, shimmer, duochrome or metallic.

What else you need to know:
Professionals, celebrities, and makeup junkies swoon for the wide array of shades. The subway token compact comes complete with a window (see your shade without opening), and snaps shut with one hand – no more lost lids. All shades can be used wet for more intense color, try them as a liner!

My favorite celebrity from the Oscars was by far Katherine Heigl, I loved the old Hollywood glamour look. I think her hair and makeup were absolutely flawless and her dress was beautiful.

Lipstick
What it is:
A pure, creamy lipstick formula for bold color.

What it does:
Nars Lipsticks are enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and keep true color intact. Sheer finish creates the most natural, stained-looking lips. Semi-matte produces velvety, full-bodied lips. Finally, satin fashions creamy, moist-looking lips.

Reader Request: Recommendations for a brick red/sheer lipstick?

m300_261.jpg 

We recently received an email from Sarah, asking for help finding a new lipstick!  So let’s see if we can help her out!

Hello Make Her Up,

I’m wondering if you have any recommendations on good, deep brick red lipstick. I’ve bought several, and they all seem to be a bit purple/cold — I’m looking for a warmer shade! It seems like most of lipstick brands don’t carry this… and it’s so flattering! My ideal shade would also be a bit sheer. :)

Thank you!

Well Sarah, I’ve found three for you to take a look at!  When I’m shopping for lipstick, I always turn to MAC.  I haven’t found a lipstick yet that lasts longer, looks better, or feels better. 

MAC Lipstick: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Check out these three colors I’ve chosen for you – let me know if you like any of them!

UPDATE: Here’s a response from Sarah!

Thanks so much – I’ll def hit up the Mac store this weekend and let you know how it goes!

Have a good weekend!

Viewer Review! Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish

fresh_brown_sugar1.jpg 

I have very sensitive skin and can hardly use any type of scrub or polish without having a reaction. I got a sample of Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish and fell in love! It is mild enough to use every day and does not irritate my skin. It is a combination of oils and exfoliates. I have battled with dry skin patches all of my life, especially in the winter, and have not had any problems since I started using this product. Even my husband noticed my skin feeling smoother! It is light and smooth and can be used in the bath or shower. The sent resembles more of a citrus than brown sugar and for some reason reminds me of being a kid. Try it! It is absolutely amazing.
