Does Jennifer Garner make you want to buy?

Jennifer Garner is the new face of Neutrogena and she is helping them sell their new age reverse line.  Though I realize genetics played a much larger role in her looks then Neutrogena, I admit having her as a spokesperson makes me more interested to try it.

How to apply nude makeup for a natural look!

04475_5_123_830lo.jpg 

I saw this picture of Alyssa Milano today, and I thought her makeup looked so nice!  It’s very natural makeup, and it looks really great! I found this great 8 step how-to apply natural makeup.  Look beautiful without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup!

Step One

Start with clean skin. Apply a thin layer of makeup primer to whole face (I highly recommend to splurge a little on face makeup, because it’s important to have good quality, long staying makeup). I suggest Laura Geller Spackle, or Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, both from Sephora. Allow it to dry for a few seconds.

Step Two

Put a dollop of foundation on the top of your hand, to warm it. Gently pat foundation (don’t rub. Trust me, the results are much better) onto face, wherever it needs correcting. If you choose a good, medium or full -coverage foundation (my personal favorite is Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra-it stays on the whole day, and there’s no need for retouching), you won’t need any concealer. Don’t forget to blend it well so you don’t have foundation marks showing on your jaw line.

Step Three

Apply loose powder (BareMinerals Mineral Veil is amazing) lightly all over your face except for cheeks, so you don’t lose that natural glow.

Step Four

Apply your bronzer in circular motions on the apples of your cheeks, but LIGHTLY. It has to look very natural. Excessive makeup is never good. Also apply some on the bridge of your nose, on your forehead and on your chin. Blend well!

Step Five

Next, apply your brightest eye shadow right under your brow bone, and a little bit on the inner corners of your eyes too. Then, put on the medium shade of the trio, and finish right under the light eye shadow from the brow bone. Blend them together with your finger. Third, apply the darkest eye shadow on one fourth of the outer part of your eyelid, and blend it well with the medium-toned one. It might seem a little bit complicated, but once you get the hang of it it’ll look beautiful!

Step Six

Use the same dark shadow to line the outer corner of the lower part of your eyes, and smudge, smudge, smudge! Next, use pencil eyeliner to line the inside of your eyes.

Step Seven

Apply one coat of mascara (volumizing is the best) and let it dry for several seconds. Apply a second coat, AND a third one if you want to look like you have faux lashes on. It looks amazing, but if you don’t like the look one coat suffices.

Step Eight

Last, apply nude lip color to your lips with a brush, so the color will look more natural. Vincent Longo’s Wet Pearl Lipstick in Sweet Samba is very flattering for fair, ivory or olive skin. Sephora Gloss Lipstick in 41 looks great for darker skin tones.

Mariah vs. P Diddy

mariah-carey-diddy-live-2-4000824.jpg 

Diddy recently issued a challenge…

“I send out a challenge…I challenge all of my female counterparts that have fragrances…that my fragrance is better than theirs. I’m a man and I know how women should smell!”

Mariah responds…

“I heard about this competition, and I wish Puff all the best with his new fragrance, but I think we’re actually appealing to different types of women. M by Mariah Carey is about being unforgettable, not unforgivable. It’s not about a ménage à trois or a one night stand, it’s for the woman who wants the man to fall in love with her immediately, stay in love, and treat her like royalty.”

M by Mariah Carey captures the intricate beauty of Mariah’s music in this sophisticated harmony of fragrance notes and accords. Drawing upon Mariah’s own personal experiences, each of the three key elements of the scent embodies a part of her, eliciting her warmth, sensuality and glamour.

M by Mariah Carey embodies the beauty, complexity and femininity for which Mariah Carey is so well known and loved. It is a harmonious union of velvety sensual notes and the textured floralcy of the Living Tahitian Tiare flower.

“For me, creating this scent was like creating a song – it takes many notes to compose a fragrance.  It’s like a beautiful melody.” Mariah Carey
