Bobbi Brown releases teen beauty book, site and a new palette

Whether posting pictures on Facebook, prepping for the prom or nailing the first job interview, never has it been harder for teens to embrace their beauty and stay true to themselves. Renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown is helping young women become their most amazing selves with her fresh, new beauty bible Beauty Rules (Chronicle Books, September 2010). In Beauty Rules, Bobbi builds beauty from the inside out with tips on everything from exercise and eating right to the importance of being a great friend. And, of course, there’s plenty about getting great makeup. Plus, Hilary Duff wrote the book’s foreword.

In celebration of her new book, Bobbi designed a pretty palette of wearable eye, lip and cheek colors and launched a new site, The sites features behind the scenes photos and video footage, before and after images, and a quiz that allows users to create their own set of beauty rules, while accurately match themselves to one of the girls in the book. Plus, a great mother-daughter makeover sweeps.

Megan Fox at the Toronto Film Festival

Red Carpet Watch
Megan Fox at the Toronto Film Festival

Megan Fox looked white-hot at the premiere of her new movie “Passion Play” at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. She wore an elegant white Armani Privé dress and a sultry waved style created by celebrity stylist Creighton Bowman.

How to get the look:
“We decided a soft, and effortlessly natural look was the way to go with her dress which was sexy and short, and I wanted to play up the beauty of her long, luxurious hair,” said Creighton.

“The styling became all about products that would keep the hair looking fresh all evening long. I started by applying Lisa Chiccine Thickening Volume Foam, an alcohol-free styling mousse loaded with botanical extracts and certified organic ingredients, then towel-dried the hair from root to ends. I used it for this look because it’s really lightweight and gives a nice boost of natural-looking lift and volume.

Next, I did a loose, natural-looking blow dry and sprayed a light mist of Lisa Chiccine Hold Weightless Satin Hairspray all over her hair. I used Hold because it’s fast drying, flexible and gives an anti-static hold. It’s great for long hair that needs to move. Finally, I sectioned the hair and made random waves with a medium curling iron. To finish, I used a drop of Lisa Chiccine Shine, a great anti-frizz serum by Lisa Chiccine that doesn’t weight hair down. It also has sun filters to help prevent sun damage.

Lisa Chiccine products used to achieve Megan Fox’s red carpet hairstyle:
Lisa Chiccine Thickening Volume Foam a powerful mousse loaded with botanical extracts and certified organic ingredients, for exceptional lift and volume. (7 oz. / $26.00)

Lisa Chiccine Hold Weightless Satin Hairspray, for natural-looking, flexible, anti-static hold with no residue or build-up. (10 oz / $26.00)
