After the first hit I was hooked. Now I have one of these tubes by my bed, in my purse, my car. You name it there is one waiting for me. My lips feel so great I don’t need to use it as much as I do but with this combo can you blame me?

This is a great detangler and moisturizer for all hair types. African Shea Butter, wheat germ and soy proteins seal split ends and boost shine and fullness. A fragrant  blend of essential oils of California lemon, orange, lavender and gardenia increase hair’s elasticity and strength.

After shampooing I apply and let it work for a few minutes while I wash and shave then rinse out. I love that its so light but still leaves my hair super soft and easy to comb through. When my hair is really dry I work a dollop through the mid section to the ends and cover my hair and let it condition for up to 30 minutes. My hair is soft, moisturized and not weighed down and it smells fantastic . Love it!

Emmys: Inside Allison Williams Clutch

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff was behind the scenes with Allison Williams getting the Girls star and Emmy presenter red carpet ready for the awards show. Below is a breakdown of Allison’s beauty look along with a sneak peek inside her clutch – which included: tarte not so slick oil-absorbing blotting papers, tarte LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in lucky, and tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in golden pink.

“Allison had just returned from her summer vacation so her skin was sun-kissed,” said Pati Dubroff, celebrity makeup artist. “We decided to go with a soft look. I dubbed this ‘pretty in pink with a flash’ – the pink is on the lid, the cheek and the lip, while the flash is a dash of bright yellow gold on the inner corner of her eyes which complimented the bright yellow grosgrain belt on her dress.”

Pati prepped the skin with tarte clean slate timeless smoothing primer in the t-zone to eliminate the need for powder. She then used a very small amount of tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15 in light medium honey. “I wanted the sheer coverage so Allison’s freckles could show through,” said Pati. Pati finished the skin using tarte park avenue princess bronzer to amp up the tan and tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in fearless on the apples of the cheeks for a pinky flush.

The brows were defined with tarte the brow architect™ brow shaper, liner and definer in medium-tan.

“I created the structured eyes with Pati Dubroff dream palette using ochre and raw to give matte structure and a soft tone in the crease and under the eye,” said Pati. She then applied tarte smolderEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in golden beige in the center of the lid for a peachy pink base followed by Chanel Illusion D’ombre in Abstraction on top. On the inner corner of the eyes, Pati added a flash of NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado for a flash of bright yellow. At the base of the lash line Pati used tarte lights, camera, lashes™ precision longwear liquid eyeliner – with a touch of a light flick at the outer corner. She completed Allison’s eyes by well coating the lashes in tarte lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara.

Pati created a soft but well-structured lip using tarte LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in lucky with a touch of tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in golden pink layered on top.

Allison’s Gambattista Valli Couture sleeveless dress meant her body was on display. “It’s just as important to make sure that the skin on her body looks as just as flawless as the skin on her face,” said Pati. “I used Jergens BB Body Skin Perfecting Cream in Medium to give a subtle radiant sheen and illuminate Allison’s skin.”
