Get The Look: Cat Deeley at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards.


So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley wowed the crowd when she stepped onto the red carpet tonight at the 64th annual Emmy Awards. Makeup Artist Amy Strozzi was the visionary behind the nominated host’s stunning beauty look. Amy put the focus on Cat’s eyes, layering a wet coffee shadow over a blend of multiple mocha shades for a modern take on the classic smokey eye. Amy then upped the drama by smudging a dark brown liner on both top and bottom lashes and swiping black mascara on lashes for the finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of the eyes, Amy kept the rest of Cat’s face simple: she gave Cat her signature sunkissed glow using Glow Powder Bronzer and added a rosy flush of color on Cat’s cheekbones using True Color Blush. Amy finally opted to give Cat a nude lip, which she achieved by applying a neutral lip liner over the entire lip and then swiping a matching lipstick.

Get the Look: Selena Gomez at the Teen Choice Awards

Celebrity makeup artist Karan Mitchell worked with young starlet Selena Gomez for last night’s Teen Choice Awards. Inspired by Selena’s hot pink D Squared dress, Karan gave Selena a fun, flirty look with lots of lashes and pink lip gloss.
Karan focused on Selena’s eyes, layering shadows, liner and applying false lashes. She kept her skin super dewy by applying foundation with a dampened sponge and adding concealer under her eyes and on the t-zone for extra brightness. To give her that sunkissed effect, Karan contoured her cheeks with bronzer under the cheek bones and applied blush to her cheekbones for a rosy glow.
Below are the products that were used to get Selena’s look–all are available on Avon.com or through Avon representatives nationwide.

Dr Perricone Discusses: Fighting Cellulite

 

Dr. Perricone Discusses: Fighting Cellulite

Aging does not just take place on the face. As we age, we commonly see changes in the body that include the loss of muscle tone in conjunction with the addition of body fat, particularly in the abdominal area, and on the legs and arms. This excess body fat is directly attributable to two factors. The first is the loss of insulin sensitivity, the second the elevation of cortisol (the death hormone) levels in conjunction with a decrease in the life or youth hormones such as testosterone, estrogen and human growth hormone.

This combination of loss of muscle tone and increased body fat results in a condition commonly known as cellulite — the dimpled appearance of skin caused by fat deposits just below the surface of the skin.

Combat Cellulite by Changing Your Diet
While cellulite is not entirely ‘curable’, there are several dietary changes that can minimize and improve the appearance of cellulite.

1. Make anti-inflammatory foods the basis of your daily diet. This will ensure low body fat, maintenance of muscle mass and radiant skin, and will help you avoid swings in blood sugar, which can cause the storage of fat and a breakdown of muscle tissue.

2. Drink plenty of pure, non-carbonated spring water throughout the day (6 to 8 glasses) with a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Lemon is rich in bioflavonoids and vitamin C (anti-inflammatory antioxidants), and acts as a natural diuretic to help the body shed excess water.

3. Eat plenty of detoxifying fruit and vegetables. Lemons, asparagus, cranberries, fennel, celery, dandelion and ginger root are natural detoxifying agents, and many experts believe detoxifying the body helps eliminate the lumpy and bumpy appearance of cellulite. These fruits and vegetables also act as natural diuretics to help eliminate excess water build up.

4. Eat a diet rich in lignans, which will help lower estrogen levels. Estrogen can contribute to cellulite as it activates the production of fat cells and encourages fluid retention. Foods rich in lignans include chia seeds and sesame seeds.
