It was love at first sight with the new Zoya Naturel Duex Collection. I love all the creamy neutral shades, they are perfect for Fall. If you have’t tried a Zoya polish yet you are missing out. The polish brush makes quick and clean application a breeze. The best part is they dry really fast and are very chip resistant.  Be sure to grab some of these great new colors for Fall while supplies last.

I really love all these shades which is hard to say with most collections. The standouts for me have to be Spence and Madeline, both gorgeous neutrals and unbelievable shine!

Stay tuned for my review of the swoon worthy new Zoya collections Ignite and Entice!

Zoya Naturel Duex 2014 $9
Inspired by the desire to expand the popular neutral palette of the Zoya NATUREL collection, six (6) NEW, full-coverage creams in deeper hues were born.

Perfect as every day go-to colors, the Zoya NATUREL DEUX (2) collection bridges the transitional gap between late summer/early fall 2014 with three, rich brown family shades and three plum based beauties. All in the long-wearing, BIG5FREE formula Zoya is known for!

How to Achieve the Perfect Top Knot!

Top Knot- front

The Top Knot is the ideal style for any occasion as it can easily be paired with a dressed up or down ensemble for the perfect look. Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Stylist, shares how to achieve this look:

  • For best results, start with day two hair onwards as your hair will be easier to manage with an already ‘lived -in’ texture.
  • Mist hair with dry shampoo, focusing primarily on the roots mainly – this will give your hair more texture, grip and volume.
  • Then mist a light hairspray throughout for some hold and grip.
  • Sweep your hair into high ponytail. Keep checking what it looks like from your profile so you position ponytail in the most flattering point of your head for your face shape.
  • Take the ponytail and back-brush from the underneath lightly – this creates a slight disheveled texture.
  • Sweep around the base of the ponytail and pin using U shaped hairpins. These really anchor the hair best which means you will only need 2 or 3 to secure.

This creates perfectly disheveled topknot that looks ultra stylish and works for any event.

Get the Look: Jaime King at the Sin City 2 Premiere‏

“The look we created tonight is what I like to call ‘evening glamour goddess’”, said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno. Prepping natural beauty Jaime King for the Sin City 2 premiere, Katey kept Jamie’s look sleek, sexy, and perfectly understated to compliment her stunning Versace gown.

“Wanting to play up Jaime’s luminous, gorgeous skin, I began with a face oil and serum to prep the skin. I kept her foundation super light, using liquid foundation on her t-zone, and adding polka dots and moon beams along her cheekbones, the bridge of her nose, and her Cupid’s bow with a highlighting stick.

Next, I intensified her glowing and healthy cheeks with a little mauve cream blush.

Since this look was all about fresh, I kept Jaime’s eye makeup minimal, exaggerating her lash line with some extra lashes, her lids with a glowing nude eye shadow, and a whole lot of mascara. I finished with a matte brown shadow to define her crease.

Jaime likes a full brow, so I defined her brows with a soft brown shadow and brushed them into place.

Finally — the lips! On her lips, I kept it simple with Burt’s Bees new Lip Crayons in Sedona Sands and Hawaiian Smolder ($9, burtsbees.com). Together, it was the perfect pink-nude to complete the fresh faced look, and with a matte/satin finish, her lips will stand out perfectly, and will stay moisturized all night long.”
