The Hot Tamale collection features six new, eye-catching lacquers that will make an extra bold statement from South Beach to Laguna Beach. From shocking neon shades to bright shimmers with enough sparkle to outshine even the hot summer sun, Duri Cosmetics has one “Hot Tamale” on your hands.

“Summer brings out bright, energizing colors that make us look as good as we feel,” says Faina Ritz, creator of Duri Cosmetics and the visionary behind Duri’s Hot Tamale Collection. “With this collection, we really wanted to capture the best things about summer like the heat, the activities and most of all, the fashion.”

Show off a bright neon like Señorita Caliente (hot pink) at the pool, or a sparkly Chili Pepper (pink/red shimmer) for the late-night Tiki party. Or, go a simple summer classic of Queso Blanco (pure white) to match anything and everything!

Hot Tamale Collection includes six summer-tastic hues: Habanero – an opaque neon orange with high gloss finish; Queso Blanco- a pure white with slight pearl shimmer finish; Chili Pepper- a bright pink/red loaded with tons of sparkles and shine; Margarita- a bold lemon-lime with high shimmer finish; Señorita Caliente – an opaque hot pink with high gloss finish; Salsa Verde- a bright green with heavy gloss finish.

Clairol Natural Instincts Spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis Looks Flawless for First Restaurant Opening in VEGAS!‏

Giada Clairol Natural Instincts

Celebrity chef and Clairol Natural Instincts spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis celebrated the opening of her first restaurant “Giada” in Las Vegas last night with her nearest and dearest. For the big night, Giada’s look was inspired by the art and colors threaded throughout her restaurant, designed to feel like you’re dining in Giada’s home.

Julie Morgan, celebrity makeup artist and longtime friend of Giada De Laurentiis, got her hair and makeup ready for the event. Here’s how:

Giada’s hair was freshly colored with Clairol Natural Instincts Amber Shimmer (a shade change for Giada) which gave her hair a gorgeous light golden brown hue. For the evening, she opted for loose voluminous waves to complement her Italian and California roots. To achieve this look:

1. Shampoo hair 24-48 hours after coloring hair for best results

2. Blow-dry hair and apply texturizing spray to roots for added volume

3. Take 1 inch barrel curling iron and twist sections of hair while leaving the ends of the hair out

4. Apply shine spray

5. Turn head over and move fingers through hair and spray a medium hold hairspray all-over to hold the curls in place, like Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer

To complement Giada’s soft locks, Julie went with stone and jewel-tone smoky eye liner by Trish McEvoy. Giada’s overall skin, cheeks and lips were done in a rose gold hue (Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, Jouer Rose Blush with Sunshine Bronzer and Rose Lip Pencil with Peach Pearl Lip Enhancer). Her look was finished with COVERGIRL mascara.

Giada’s wardrobe was styled by Stylist Sam Saboura — dress was by Cushnie et Ochs and shoes by Givenchy.
