WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Is Make Her Up the best beauty site – or what!? I have the best contest for you guys! One lucky winner will receive one of each of these products!! I’ve tried them all (multiple times!) and I wouldn’t recommend them if I hadn’t tried them myself. They are each special – and huge hits here with us at MHU. (Um hello – the Conair hairdryer is to DIE FOR! You will be so happy!)

This could be an after-Christmas present just for you! I won’t tell anyone if you keep it all for yourself. :) Merry Christmas everyone!

The holiday season is supposed to be filled with joy and happiness. However, the cold weather, holiday shopping, countless parties, and stress can leave you looking a little more frazzled than festive!

Here are some beauty must-haves to keep you looking your best this holiday season:

For Mistletoe-Ready Lips… Lips need protection especially during the winter months, so protect them with Softlips lip conditioning balms. The new Softlips limited edition holiday flavors- Sugar & Spice, Winter Mint, Sugar Cookie, Sugar Plum Berry and Mint with a hint of Vanilla provide a tasty winter treat for your lips!  Each irresistibly delicious flavor  also features SPF 20.sun protection (suggested retail price for the Holidays 5-pack $9.99).  Softlips products are available in mass retail, supermarkets and drug stores nationwide along with Softlips.com. Visit www.softlips.com to learn more about the products or access the new Facebook page.

Salon Style Hair – Even When You Can’t Get to the Salon… Whether you’re prepping for holiday parties or looking for a great gift of beauty for a friend, you can’t go wrong with styling tools from Conair! Start out by blow-drying hair with either the Infiniti Pro by Conair 1875-Watt Salon-Performance AC Motor Styling Tool that utilizes a powerful AC (alternating current) motor, making it easy to harness salon-quality power at home, or the Infiniti Cord-Keeper By Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Ionic Hair Styler that has a cord that retracts right back into the handle for easy storage! Each uses ionic technology that reduces static electricity and leaves hair silkier, shinier, and more manageable. (suggested retail price of $38.99 for the Infiniti Pro and $36.99 for the Cord-Keeper)

Looking to “do it up” for the holidays?  Look to scunci hair accessories!  The scunci UpZing double combs can create dozens of styles from polished ponies to glam up-dos, and new Evolution hair ties, headbands and claw clips utilize new stay-put technology to hold your style until you take it out!

scunci products are available nationwide at mass market and drug store retailers. For more information, visit www.scunci.com or visit the scunci Facebook page at www.facebook.com/scuncihair or to enter the Holiday Hair Haul sweepstakes.

For a Bright-Eyed Look…Whether you’re short on sleep or hung-over from all of the holiday parties, ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops can help you instantly whiten your tired eyes. ROHTO is considered a secret weapon of many celebrity makeup artists and is available in four different formulations- new Hydra, Cool, Ice and Arctic. The drops not only remove the redness fast, but also have a cooling “kick” that refreshes, lubricates and soothes eyes for an instant eye perk up. Also, the bottle is small enough to carry in a clutch purse or your pocket so you’ll always have relief. (suggested retail price $6.99-$8.99)

ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops are available at most drug, mass and grocery outlets nationwide, as well as online at drugstore.com. For more information on ROHTO, visit www.myrohto.com or www.facebook.com/rohtoeyedrops.

Combat Excessive Perspiration… Even in the cold weather, sweating can be an issue. Factor in the stress of planning parties or holiday shopping, and you could be a sweaty mess. Don’t ruin your new holiday outfit or expensive sweater with visible sweat stains. Try Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant, the number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration. Available in Roll-On or Solid, Certain Dri is the strongest available over-the-counter antiperspirant and provides 72-hours of protection with each application. (suggested retail price $5.50-$6)

Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant is available in mass market retail, supermarkets and drug stores nationwide, as well as via online retailers and at www.certaindri.com. For more information, visit www.certaindri.com or our new Facebook page.

New Products!

Dior has released a Limited Edition of their hugely popular (and a personal favorite) Diorshow Mascara. Introducing Diorshow 360! This professional mascara mimics a makeup artist’s application technique for a perfect 360-degree lash-styling effect. Featuring a patented double-helix brush with extra-smooth fibers and a sculptable wax formula, this mascara features a spinning brush that rotates in both directions to adapt to every need, whether you’re left- or right-handed or you want to pump up upper or lower lashes. I think that brush looks awesome! Even though I’ve switched to CoverGirl Lash Blast, I may be swayed to try this! ($36)

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm from Clinique! This gorgeous lip color treats lips to mouthwatering moisture and a hint of soft shine. It never needs sharpening—simply swivel up to reveal more of the balm. I’m in love with lipstick balms lately…it’s a lipgloss and lipstick in one! I can’t wait to try this! ($15)

This adorable new palette from Stila is new this month, and for only $10 it could be yours! Whether you’re chilling by the fire or hitting the slopes, the Adventurous in Aspen Travel Palette ($65 Value) will warm up your winter look in the coolest of climates. It has four trend-setting shades: Snow Angel (shimmering heather gray), Icicles (blue), Glisten (shimmering gold), and Ajax (black with gold sparkle). The palette also includes Convertible Color in Rosy, a rose-pink shade that’s perfect for creating a natural winter glow. ($10)

According to an anonymous source, Claire Danes experiencing side effects from Latisse!

A gossip item out of the New York Post’s “Page Six” is making Claire Danes’ lashes flutter.

An anonymous source claims “that Danes’ makeup artist has to plaster on concealer to cover the bruise-like purplish and yellowish” skin discoloration that the actress’ use of lash-growth drug Latisse has left around her eyes.

Cited as a possible side effect, skin darkening joins redness, itchiness and alternate hair growth as unwanted consequences that may occur with use of the serum, for which Danes was tapped earlier this year as spokesmodel.

While the 31-year-old Emmy-winning star admits on her Latisse blog to experiencing redness during the first week she was on the lash-growth serum, product maker Allergan is calling foul on the talk of skin darkening.

“Between Claire’s team, Allergan and Claire’s physician, we don’t know where this false rumor originated,” an Allergan spokesperson tells StyleList.

“Claire Danes has been using Latisse since late 2009, and has been happy with her experience and lash results. She continues to use Latisse, and is proud to continue to serve as a spokesperson for the Latisse brand,” adds the spokesperson.

I wonder if it’s true!?
