Check out Ke$ha’s dramatic make-under!

Ke$ha is known for her face paint, body glitter and flashy clothes. But the singer posed for a serious make-under for Glamour Magazine!

The 24-year-old took off her makeup, and wore more feminine clothes in Glamour’s newest issue. In the interview, Ke$ha admits she doesn’t normally wash her makeup off, and wears the same things over and over.

She said: “My makeup is usually left over from the night before. I’m not really worried about the photographs because if I tell my fans not to give a f*** about the haters, then I have to practice what I preach. I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them.”

Ke$ha, who can play the guitar and piano, also explained how much she loves wearing her now famous body paint.

She said: ‘Oh, the body paint stays. It’s my favorite thing to do.

‘Sometimes I have parties at my house in Nashville and it’s clothing-optional, and we just body-paint each other and run around, and I have a giant bed.

‘I’m very much in touch with that side of myself.’

For the dramatic make-under the singer can be seen in minimal make-up with her long blonde hair treated and styled as opposed to her normal wild designs.

The We R Who We R singer is pictured wearing a pair of fishnet tights and a white off-the-shoulder jumper as she poses elegantly before slipping into a orange maxi dress.

Despite the classy outfits, Ke$ha is still as honest as ever about her career and didn’t hold back with her typical rock star attitude.

She said: ‘I know that I have balls. I have bigger balls than a lot of the men that I meet.

‘I’m just a ballsy motherf*****. I’m not afraid of pushing boundaries. That’s what you have to do to become an icon.’

The chart-topper continued: ‘Eventually, I would love to be on my deathbed and looked at as an icon.

‘Right now I’m still at the baby stages of my career. But that is the goal.’

She looks so beautiful in these pictures! She looks so much better without all the layers of crap she’s normally wearing.

Don’t you agree?

Beth Ditto MAC Collaboration Set For June

Beth Ditto is ready to make her mark.

The Gossip singer, who has been happily embraced by the fashion industry despite her decidedly non-fashion size, is signing on with MAC Cosmetics for a limited edition collaboration. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Ditto, who often boasts her own bold eye makeup, will create signature products to hit MAC stores and counters in June.

Ditto has also formed a positive connection with MAC, even performing at the brand’s New York store on Fashion’s Night Out in 2011. Now, like Daphne Guinness and Iris Apfel before her, Ditto will lend her name and distinctive style to MAC.

No word yet on specific products, but we’re guessing there will be some dark eyeliner and awesome colored eyeshadow involved.

Makers of the Brazilian Blowout forced by the FDA to admit their product causes cancer!

 

I just read this article on Brazilian Blowout, and it floored me! I had to pass along the information. If you or someone you know has done this – pass it along!

Last year, Brazilian Blowout–a popular Brazilian keratin straightening treatments currently offered at salons–was under fire from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) for containing “dangerous levels” of formaldehyde in its product, despite the fact that its label claimed it was “Formaldehyde Free.” Since then, the company denied the claims and stood by their labeling. But now, it seems they have had a change of heart and have agreed to alert consumers that two of its products emit formaldehyde gas, a possible carcinogen. How nice of them to finally let us know that our quest for straight hair was so toxic.

The labeling changes are designed to settle a lawsuit that was filed in California last November, when the attorney general’s office accused the Hollywood-based company of deceptive advertising. Not only did their labeling state the product was free of formaldehyde, which can irritate the eyes, skin and lungs, but it was found to have anywhere from 8.7 to 10.4% formaldehyde, which is multiple times that of the 0.2 percentage that peer-reviewed Cosmetic Ingredient Review board considers safe for consumers.

California’s Attorney General, Kamala Harris, said in a statement:
“California laws protect consumers and workers and give them fair notice about the health risks associated with the products they use. This settlement requires the company to disclose any hazard so that Californians can make informed choices.”

To which Brazilian Blowout is responding by paying a whopping $600,000 in penalties and fines for failing to notify consumers and hair stylists that its products contain chemicals that may cause cancer. They have also agreed to have their products tested for all toxic substances at a state-approved lab, and include proper labeling on their products alerting consumers of the formaldehyde content–which, of course, most salons already suspected anyway.

Not that this changes anything with the product. Brazilian Blowout is continuing to manufacture and sell the same formula. The only difference is that now consumers should know better than to buy it.

Not sold? Here’s another scathing article from the NY Times.
