What did you think of Lorde’s black fingertips at last night’s Grammys?

Lorde made her Grammy debut last night – and what night it was!

She performed her breakout hit “Royals” at the Staples Center. Wearing a sleeveless white shirt, and black pants, the singer belted out her famous song. She sounded AMAZING. I think I liked the live version of the song better!

As I watched her sing (my son said she looked like she was going to be sick the whole time), all I could do was stare at her black fingertips. She dipped the tips of her fingers in black paint, which she removed before hitting the stage to accept her award.

Her gorgeous dark lips came via M∙A∙C products. If you want her exact lip color, use M∙A∙C Heroine Lipstick mixed with Cyber Lipstick and M∙A∙C Vino Lip Pencil.

Although we didn’t see her typical curly mane — we loved her loose, very slightly wavy locks! The center-part was also a nice touch to complete the look. Her hair was done by Jen Atkin.

Davine’s Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion is HEAVENLY!

davines_oil_absolute_beautifying_potion

If hair oil sounds suspiciously like snake oil to you, we’ve found the product that will turn you on to the trend: OI/ OIL by Davines. It’s a hard-working potion that improves your hair for the short- and long-term. First, this lightweight serum instantly tames frizz, providing the ultimate finishing touch for any hairstyle. To strengthen your mane over time, it comes packed with nourishing antioxidants that help prevent hair aging and breakage.

I am obsessed with this stuff. As I get older, I find my hair changing on me. (Why can’t things just get BETTER with age, eh?) I’m finding I don’t like to put a lot of products in my hair. I’ve been using this on my dry hair – in place of other, more heavy, products. I give it 2-3 pumps, and it keeps my hair beautiful and shiny all day! I’m loving this stuff!

How it Works

The appearance and health of your hair gets an immediate boost with the help of protective silicone and antioxidant-rich roucou oil. The end result? A glossy, frizz-free ‘do worthy of a double take.

How to Use

Apply two-to-three squeezes on damp hair to target frizz or on dry hair for extra shine. Adjust the amount according to texture (less for thin hair, more for thick hair). Be sure to coat your strands from root to tip.
