New Contest! Get The Look: Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott with a Mary Kay Prize Pack!

The 2012 CMT Awards always brings the glitz, glam and fun to the city of Nashville. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott upped-the-ante on how to perfect a country-star look with a black body-hugging dress and glam makeup to match. Hillary’s attention-grabbing eyes focused on bold lashes with smokey lids. Her flawless complexion served as the ultimate canvas for an overall red carpet head-turner. Now, you can achieve the same makeup look with help from Mary Kay!

To Get Hillary’s flawless finish prep with the Mary Kay Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and then apply your shade match of the Mary Kay Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation with the Mary Kay Liquid Foundation Brush. Brush on a pink hue cheek with the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream for radiance on the cheekbones.

To get her dramatic smokey eye makeup along with vivacious lashes, start with the Mary Kay Eye Primer directly onto the lid. Then apply a charcoal hue like the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to start the smoke. Follow by adding a lighter copper shimmer for some pop near the brow line with the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Copper Glow and finish with a couple swoops of the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara in Black to complete the country crooners’ look.

Mary Kay was kind enough to send me a set to review and let me tell you it is amazing. I love the foundation and primer both provide amazing coverage but are still light on my skin. I was new to using a foundation brush but really loved it, I found it helped me build a little extra coverage where needed much easier.

I love the new Mineral colors from Mary Kay Strawberry Cream adds the perfect pink flush. The beautiful Copper Glow adds the perfect sparkle to a smoky eye and really compliments the Coal shade. Make sure you start off with the Mary Kay Eye Primer and your shadow will look great all day. Finally what is better than waterproof mascara in summer, well besides sun? Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara is amazing, long full lashes that last and last. I road tested the mascara at a local waterpark and even after a day of water slides and swimming my lashes looked great.

So excited about this amazing prize pack, check out the look I created with the products and be sure to enter below!

A bronzing oil, it instantly gives my skin a gorgeous golden glow with a hint of shimmer. On top of making my skin look like I just came home from the tropics Too Faced Royal Oil has a great Coconut scent not too strong just a hint. Love how great it feels on my skin, keep it moisturized and looking great.

Bachlorette Beauty Secrets!


The Bachlorette is heading to Crotia with her guys to make her final decision. Wonder how she has managed to look so amazing this season? We have the inside scoop on some of  Emily’s favorite beauty products!

She gets her smooth, silky locks with the Solano SuperSolano Dryer ($129.95 SRP, Ulta.com). Denise Antonacci, her hairstylist and colorist at the Jon Ric Hair Spa in Charlotte, North Carolina, exclusively uses the Solano Dryer, a favorite of Emily’s, to help smooth down her hair. Tourmaline technology promotes healthier hair by adding shine, smoothing the hair follicle, and reducing fly-aways.

Emily won’t go a day or night without washing her face, or else she faces some serious breakouts. “Every morning I wash with OMP Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser ($37.50 SRP, Obagi.com).” Next she religiously applies OMP CRx C-Exfoliating Day Lotion ($61 SRP, Obagi.com), which keeps her complexion glowing and spot free by neutralizing free radicals with antioxidants.


Shu Uemura introduces Volume Maker!

SHU UEMURA ART OF HAIR is thrilled to unveil VOLUME MAKER, the first precision hair powder brush containing an invisible powder that offers instant volume, texture and lift at the roots. Inspired by Mr. Shu Uemura’s rich cosmetics heritage, VOLUME MAKER is a tribute to his legacy and brings to the hair industry a new creative styling aide that fuses an innovative formula with a precision brush applicator. The powerful combination of this advanced tool and product provides endless benefits including one-of-a-kind lift and fullness, root volume, long-lasting hairstyles and much more.

 BEHIND THE PACKAGING: PRECISION

True to the Master of Beauty’s philosophy that technique is key to beauty, VOLUME MAKER allows for delicate amounts of powder to gently stroke the hair resulting in precise, made-to-measure texture and volume. The packaging, inspired by makeup brushes, offers an artistic approach to hair via precision and technique. VOLUME MAKER is simple enough to be used for advanced styles as well as on-the-go touch-ups.

ENDLESS BENEFITS: A UNIVERSAL STYLER

VOLUME MAKER offers an infinite palette of styling and benefits, including but not limited to:

* Instant root volume

* Amplified shape

* Longer lasting styles – great for blow outs and greasy hair in need of controlling oily scalps

* Creative styling

* Texture for modern up-dos

* Used throughout the day as a touch-up product or blow-dry refresher

INNOVATIVE FORMULA: THE POWDER’S SECRET

State of the art texturizing polymers encapsulated in micro-particles are so small that they allow for a large surface of adhesion on the hair’s surface. This allows the texture to spread across the roots and support the hair’s most intricate areas while still keeping the powder invisible.

USAGE

The unique packaging offers clients and stylists the ability to tailor the volume to their individual needs:

* Press button three times and brush onto root area of dry hair where volume is desired

* Distribute with circular gestures

* Back comb the powdered area to optimize the volume/structure

* Can be used alone or in conjunction with other styling offerings

* Touch up to refresh your style

* Creative hair dressing

Volume Maker will be sold in salons in June and is available for pre-order here.
