Mom’s Smokey Eye!

Just saw this commercial and I died laughing. Not only have I been there with trying trends that I didn’t get quite right or just completely failed in application.

Jason Wu and Lancôme Collabration In the Works!

This collection looks beautiful, I can’t wait to see the rest of the line. I love a good collaboration collection!

WWD has the first photos of Jason Wu‘s color cosmetics collaboration with Lancôme, set to launch this September during New York Fashion Week.

“I think makeup is one of the closest parts to fashion — it goes hand in hand in almost every single case,” Wu told WWD. “When you have great hair and makeup, it brings out the clothes even more. This project feels very organic to me and is one of my favorite collaborations that I’ve ever done. In so many ways Lancôme shares a lot of the same DNA as my brand — it’s feminine and there’s something quite classic about it that never gets old. I see those qualities within my own designs.”

The collections will include three eye shadow palettes, dark navy mascara and multiple red lipsticks and nail polishes. Compacts and packaging are in Wu’s signature dove gray, with the designer’s name and the Lancôme rose prominently featured.

“Every little detail has been customized and designed for this collaboration, so it feels very special and complete,” Wu said. “I think it will stand out on the beauty floor because I don’t think anyone else is using gray for their collection right now. I think the packaging part is as special as what’s inside.”

Three photo spreads by superstar photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Camilla Akrans and Bruce Weber show all different aspects of her personality, although we are sure she has more than three sides.

The August issue of German VOGUE hits newsstands on July 17, 2013 with its title “Nicole Kidman – up close and personal.” Previews of some of the photo spreads from the magazine can then be found at VOGUE.de.

A telephone conversation between friends: VOGUE-author Ingrid Sischy phone with Nicole Kidman

Ingrid Sischy: From where are you talking about just Nicole? I know that you’re with you in Nashville, but you sit outside in the garden?

Nicole Kidman: No, in a small room in Keith’s studio. He just plays guitar and takes on a song.

Ingrid Sischy: Tell me about your two young daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith. Do you think they will look at the “Wizard of Oz” and want to go beyond the yellow brick road?

Nicole Kidman: They’re both very different and very complex. Sunny is hugely emotional and expressive, and Faith, the younger, is more musically gifted.

Apple Cider Vinegar is the amazing beauty product you should be utilizing!

We’ve talked about the benefits of baking soda before, coconut oil and more. Today we’re talking apple cider vinegar – and the most amazing 10 facts we could wrangle up about the household item!

According to Huffington Post, there are some pretty amazing benefits of apple cider vinegar! Here are 10 ways you can add apple cider vinegar to your beauty routine!

Hair rinse: Skip harsh shampoos and wash away buildup with an apple cider vinegar rinse. When used as a follow-up to baking soda, this do-it-yourself treatment makes strands shinier, reduces frizz and seals cuticles. It also simulates the scalp to promote hair growth.

Toner: Psoriasis sufferers praise apple cider vinegar for reducing inflammation. Apply a few drops to a cotton ball and rub on your T-zone or other dry spots to prevent breakouts and minimize blemishes. Scarlett Johansson swears by this trick!

Mouthwash: Mix apple cider vinegar with water, then swish around in your mouth. This antiseptic will break down plaque and bad breath-causing bacteria.

Face mask: When you combine equal parts apple cider vinegar and Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, you get one pretty awesome mask. Leave this detoxifying, deep-pore treatment on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Bath solution: The next time you get ready to slip into a warm bath, add one to two capfuls of apple cider vinegar. It draws toxins out of the body, leaving behind toned and moisturized skin.

Wart removal: Can’t afford surgery to get rid of warts? Try placing a cotton pad soaked in apple cider vinegar on top, then secure with a bandage. Leave on overnight and remove in the morning. If you stick to this consistently for a week, you should start to see results. (Warning: Don’t pick at your skin as the wart dries up.)

Foot soak: Go the natural route with your at-home pedicure and use apple cider vinegar to soothe aching and swollen feet. This provides instant relief for pregnant women, runners, high-heel lovers and flip-flop wearers.

Sunburn remedy: Laying out in the sun is fun until you get burned. Relieve pain and minimize peeling skin by applying a wash cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar to the area.

Age spots and varicose veins treatment: Many women claim that drinking apple cider vinegar (with water) maintains youthful-looking skin. But a way to stop signs of aging, including age spots and varicose veins, is to simply dab it on before going to bed.

Deodorant: The smell of apple cider vinegar is putrid, but it pales in comparison to underarm odor. Rub a little into your pits and the odor will eventually neutralize.
