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!

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)

Chris Evans for Gucci Guilty

Hot! What do you think of the chest hair? Usually fragrance ads shot bare-chested men. Chris is definitely rocking a hairy chest (which I’m okay with) but many women don’t like a hairy chest! What’s your take?

That’s Evan Rachel Wood pictured drooling on him. You can see her hot ads here!

I’m in love with…Sebastian Hair Products!

‘Morning Glory’ leading lady, Rachel McAdams, looked stunning and sultry on the red carpet on 11/7 with tousled, textured hair styled by Sebastian Professional Stylist Design Team Member Thomas Dunkin. After collaborating with the makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on Rachel’s final look, Thomas chose to craft a sexy, voluminous coif with a punch of rock star glam as an unexpected and unpredictable anecdote to the star’s gray strapless dress.

To achieve this sexy rocker chic ‘do, Thomas shares a step-by-step how-to for the A-list actress’ style:

1. Saturate freshly washed hair with Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray for heat protection and touchably soft volume.

2. Rough dry with hands and blow-dryer lifting random sections while twisting hair in different directions until very nearly dry.

3. Place hair in very large Velcro rollers in a brickwork pattern for maximum root lift. Complete drying with a diffuser then allow the rollers to cool and set.

4. Remove rollers and apply a sparse amount of Sebastian Professional Matte Putty through the ends of the hair. Apply another blast of heat with the hair dryer to work up the hair’s texture by massaging the roots with finger tips.

5. Part the hair low so that a big section of fringe sits asymmetric and falls sensually over one eye. To exaggerate the style and build up the shape, set the style with Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper by spraying into the stream of hot air from the hair dryer.

6. Apply Sebastian Professional Matte Putty again loosening the look with your hands and defining the sections that give a disheveled but modern edge to the final look.
