Get The Look: Amy Poehler’s SAG Awards Beauty Look

Celebrity makeup artist to the stars, Brett Freedman, created Amy Poehler’s sultry beauty look before walking the red carpet at the SAG awards last night. Brett mixed warm and cool tones on her eyes and created a pale pink lip to soften the look. “A vivid eye and pink lip struck the perfect balance to her plunging midnight blue Jenny Packham dress,” said Brett.


1. Apply a taupe shadow, like MAC Wedge, to the bottom lash line and crease. Next, deepen the ends with a plum shadow to add definition

2. Dust a shimmering silver shadow, like MAC Idol Eyes, on the lids with a damp brush

3. Smudge Elizabeth Arden pencil in Black Violet along the upper lash line

4. Lastly, make eyes pop by running two coats of black mascara through upper and lower lashes

1. Stroke the lighter shade of the Brett Brow Duo-Shade Pencil behind existing hairs and the deeper shade to fill in sparse areas and define the tail

2. Next, apply a golden eye shadow, like MAC Gold Mine, with a damp fantail brush to lighten brows

3. Finally, set the arch by brushing Brett Brow Arch-Control Gel upwards through the brow

1. Sweeten up the smoky eye by applying a cool pink tone like Chanel #357 across lips

You can see from my swatch below two coats gives really great coverage with Lauren B beauty polish. I love how easy this polish is to apply. I usually make a mess of my nail beds applying polish but this went on without much hassle. It dried quick and solid, I had it on for 4 days before I decided to change colors up and not even a chip.

Don’t Buy: OPI’s New ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Line


I made a trip to Ulta today, not for finger polish at all…but ended up with two new bottles. I figured I’d try out OPI’s new ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ line, since I’m all about the greys. I picked up “Dark Side of the Moon” with high expectations!

It’s OPI – what could go wrong?

It’s thin. REALLY thin. The finger on the right has one coat – the finger on the right has two coats. I was trying to capture how thin it really is – but it’s hard to do in pictures. The finger on the left has two coats on – and you can still see through the polish to my nail.

I’m not wearing ANY nail polish that takes three coats to achieve the color on the bottle.

Who’s with me?

The absolutely stunning Jennifer Aniston covers the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter


Jennifer Aniston lands the latest cover of The Hollywood Reporter, and she has never looked better if you ask me. How does she do it!?

Inside the magazine, the 45-year-old actress opens up about her ex-husband Brad Pitt, and her current fiance, Justin Theroux.

“We’re not in daily communication,” Aniston told the mag about her ex-husband Pitt, who is now married to Angelina Jolie. “But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen].”

Aniston expressed frustration about the public’s obsession with the love triangle involving herself, Jolie, and Pitt. “If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bulls—,” she pleaded. “There’s no story. I mean, at this point it’s starting to become — please, give more credit to these human beings.”

After splitting from Pitt, 51, in 2005, Aniston — following a string of short-lived romances — found her love and future husband Theroux, 43, after they reconnected in spring 2010. “It was his humor, mainly,” the Friends alum said of what attracted her to her Wanderlust costar. “He’s the easiest guy to hang around. He was so completely in his skin. It was the first time I remember being so comfortable [with a romantic interest], like with all my gay friends.”

While the two have been engaged since 2012, Aniston told the mag: “We don’t have a date. I wouldn’t tell you if we did.”

She did admit, however, that they still want kids and they’re trying. “Listen, that’s a topic that’s so exhausted,” Aniston explained. “I get nervous around that, just because it’s very personal. Who knows if it’s going to happen? It’s been a want. We’re doing our best.”

As for her recent headline-making Oscars snub? “I know a lot of people were sorry,” she reflected about being overlooked in the Best Actress category. “I feel I’ve gotten such wonderful love — I had almost more phone calls and flowers than I did for any other nomination [in the past].”

Can you imagine divorcing someone – and then FOREVER being asked about it? I feel for her. Time to stop talking about Brad Pitt has come! Let sleeping dogs lie!
