Get Julianne Moore’s Golden Globes look!

Julianne Moore looked radiant last night on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards in a dazzling pink, Lanvin dress. Nominated for Best Actress in The Kids Are All Right, her co-star Annette Benning took home the prize for the same film. Moore’s flawless makeup was created by Pati Dubroff, Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist. A fuchsia dress on a red head can be difficult to match makeup to, but Dubroff chose to stay within the pink family creating contrasting hues on the eye lids (soft pink) and deep, rich blackberry on the lips.

Skin:
Dubroff started with Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate to fill any fine lines on the skin and create an even canvas. She then applied the Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Rose Shimmer along her cheekbones for glowing skin that did not cover her freckles. Next, she swept a small amount of Blush Prodige in Miami Pink on the apples of her cheeks.

Eyes:
Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base was the foundation of the soft eye look, which not only helps pigment last all night but makes the color richer on the skin tone. Next, she used the pale pink eye shadow from Clarins new Neo Pastels Eye Palette and sculpted the eye using a matte taupe shade from the Pro Palette Eye Brow Kit. Competing the look was many coats of Wonder Perfect Mascara in Black.

Lips:
Berry stained lips, that looked like she just sipped a glass of wine were achieved without liner, but by dabbing on Clarins Rouge Prodige in Blackberry with the fingers.

The Kardashian’s Beauty Tip? Putting Mayo on Their Lady Bits!

The Kardashians appeared on ‘Conan’ Thursday night to discuss their love lives, new book and a very curious grooming tip: shining the vagina with mayonnaise.

Inspired by a discussion of their Twitter accounts, Kourtney relayed their unique tip to fans:

“I told Khloe that I found her sex mask under my bed, that she’s been looking for, and then she wrote me back, ‘Oh my god, I found your jar of mayonnaise that you use on your vagina,'” she told host Conan O’Brien. “And we were talking back and forth and people were like, what does mayonnaise on your vagina do? And we said it makes it shine like the top of the Chrysler Building.”

Sister Kim, perhaps the most reserved of the sisters, was not pleased with the exchange. “Don’t you guys realize that most of our fans are under the age 18 and you are bad influences on them? Talking about putting mayonnaise on your thing is not appropriate,” she scolded her sisters.

Khloe’s response? “Follow at your own risk.”

While Kim clarified that the girls didn’t actually use mayo on their genitals – though Khloe teased, “how do you know?” – they did discuss other personal matters, like proposed endorsement deals for customized sex toys for Khloe and husband Lamar Odom, and butt enhancement pills for Kim.

DISGUSTING!

Foods that make you beautiful!

We spend so long coating ourselves in serums, lotions and potions we sometimes forget that what we put inside our bodies can have an effect on our looks too.

In fact, what we eat can be more important in keeping us looking young and beautiful than any facial. We all know the basics – burgers, chips and chocolate = bad; fruit and veg = good – but which foods can really make us look our shiny, beautiful best?

We asked expert foodies to tell us what we should be putting in our shopping baskets to enhance our looks.

Papaya, Spinach and Kale:

It might seem like a random combination, but papaya, spinach and kale all provide a phytochemical called lutein, which according to experts from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Naples helps to boost the skin’s antioxidant capacity thereby protecting against damage from free radicals.

Blackcurrants:

Researchers at Hirosaki University in Japan have just completed an intensive study which shows that blackcurrants can actually help reduce dark circles under the eyes.

The tests proved that the consumption of blackcurrants improved the blood flow around the optical nerves and drastically reduced the effect of ‘sagging eyes’.

The good news is that it’s not just fresh blackcurrants that can help, blackcurrants in any form will do the trick – including in jams and pies!
