Aquage and Susan G. Komen team up in the fight against breast cancer!

As a long-standing advocate and fund-raiser for Susan G. Komen For The Cure Aquage is committed to serve in the fight against breast cancer. And although the brand’s signature color is all things blue, the passionate Aquage family definitely sees the world “through pink colored glasses.”

May, a month synonymous with wide-spread breast cancer awareness will mark the 5th year that Aquage will be supporting Komen for the Cure. The brand, and its many salon partners, will go pink, showcasing an exclusive collection of “pink” hair care with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the cause. To-date, the brand has raised over $489,000.00 for the cause and is anticipating continued success in 2012.

“As a life-long hairdresser and educator, I have met countless women who have been touched by breast cancer. The emotional connection between women feeling beautiful and hair is strong, and that’s why we are committed to finding a cure by working once again with Komen for the Cure,” remarks Aquage Co-Founder, Luis Alvarez. “Our hairdressing community is selfless in their dedication and drive in the fight against breast cancer, and by touching lives daily, we can all make a tremendous impact in raising awareness and funds against this disease.”

According to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, in the United Stated in 2012, a woman will die from breast cancer, on average, every 13 minutes and will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer every 2.3 minutes. Through funds raised for Komen for the Cure, great strides are made in research, treatment and medical discoveries in the effort to further diminish these staggering statistics.

Watch the makeup tutorial that has attracted 1.5 million views – how to apply makeup when you’re drunk!

This might be the highlight of my day. I’m not going to lie, I might have watched it twice.

Have you ever been put in the situation where you need to apply makeup while drunk? (Me either) Well anyway, it makes for an absolutely HILARIOUS video, one that’s already been viewed by more than 1.5 million people!

Jenna Mourey, an American YouTube personality who is known as Jenna Marbles, has uploaded a hilarious video of herself applying make-up and offering step-by-step advice while claiming to be drunk. It has received 1.5 million hits.

The 25-year-old from Santa Monica is shown attempting to apply false eyelashes, liquid eyeliner, lip liner and other cosmetics to her face in what is likely to be a video that pokes fun at the unpolished make-up often seen on inebriated women.

The video, which was uploaded on Wednesday and is littered with profanity, shows the Boston University graduate present a plastic cup filled with an unspecified liquid to the camera before getting to work on touching-up her face.

She is seen slurring at the camera: ‘Nobody really talks about how hard it is, if you go, like, day-drinking and then everyone’s like “yeah alright, rally in a few hours and then let’s go out”… how f***ing impossible it is to put make-up on and get ready when you’re drunk.’

T.G.I.F.!!

My absolute favorite line: “If you can’t move your brush, just move your face!”

Liv Tyler reveals her beauty secrets!

Liv Tyler is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful actresses out there. She has a natural beauty that most people would kill for! (Or at least spend tons of money trying to emulate!)

The face of Givenchy and Incredible Hulk star opened up about her punk rock mother and ‘impeccable’ grandmother and how they have influenced her beauty regime over the years.

In an interview with Elle, the leggy brunette told how her mother, model-turned-singer Bebe Buell, used to pin edgy skull-shaped earrings onto her dressing room wall.

‘Very Desperately Seeking Susan,’ Tyler called it.

Her etiquette-teaching grandmother however was a real treasure trove of information when it came to beauty care, Tyler revealed.

‘She taught me a lot about grooming, always smelling good, and taking extra time to care for yourself, even when you’re being natural,’ she said.

One of these lessons was how to run a white nail pencil under her nails while taking a bath to ensure the tips were kept clean and bright.

Such tiny details perhaps explain how the star always looks so effortlessly striking both in casual attire and on the red carpet.

Known for her trademark Tyler pout and thick mane of glossy hair, the actress confessed that she likes to watch the experts and pick up tips as she goes along.

When it comes to her keeping her locks healthy she admits she doesn’t try emulate her father’s approach to hair care.

‘I use a lot of conditioner – like, a whole handful – and I leave it on for a long time. It makes my hair really soft and fluffy,’ she said.

‘We have really different hairstyles,’ she continued. ‘He has a lot of things sewn into his hair, little jewels and stuff, and he likes to bend his head forward and blow it with two blow-dryers to get lots of volume in the roots, while I like to wear mine straight and flat.

‘But we’re always comparing face creams and masks – he has cupboards full of them.’

For her part, her skincare routine is indeed thorough but when she can she likes to give her skin a boost by drinking and eating well.

‘I’d love to do a juice cleanse, but it’s hard when you live in New York and have a child and a job,’ she lamented. ‘So I just try to drink a lot of fresh juices, especially cucumber, with my regular food – I feel like it makes my skin look more radiant and hydrated.’

Whatever she’s doing – she needs to keep on doing it, because it’s working! I’m going to have to steal a couple of these tricks for myself!
