Rockin’ the Red With Makeup to Match‏

ROCKIN’ THE RED
Make-up to Match Your Ginger Color

We all know the saying, “Blondes have more fun.” Well, a new phrase is taking over: “Reds are more rad.” Going red is a bold and daring move and with these six steps from celebrity makeup artist Amy Hollier of Luxe Beauty Team at Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, you can rock the red with the perfect make-up to match your vixen look.

Step 1: Prime Eyelids

To start, use a light brown or copper cream shadow (I used Mac paint pot in “Groundwork”) on eyelids and buff out with a fluffy eye shadow brush so nothing is in the crease.

Step 2: Eye shadow

Apply copper/gold shadow to inner half of eyelids closest to the tear ducts. Then apply a bronze/brown shadow to outer half of eyelids. Blend the crease with a clean, fluffy brush.

Step 3: Eyeliner

For a more fashion/editorial look, opt for a dramatic cat eyeliner but in a plummy brown rather than black. It’s much more wearable and accents red hair perfectly. Start by lining the lashline, then building the outer corners and extending out and up at the end of the lashline. Check eye to eye for balance. I used Bobbi Browns “Black Plum Ink” gel eyeliner with a pointed liner brush.

Step 4: Eyelashes

Curl, curl and curl. Then apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. Finish with 2 or 3 individual flares of false lashes on each outer corner.

Step 5: Gorgeous Skin

Wipe away any fallen eye shadow and moisturize entire face. Next apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (I used Mac Face & Body).

Next apply a little glow to the temples and cheekbones with a liquid or cream bronzer (I used Makeup Forever Uplight#23). Lightly dust the center of the face with translucent powder to set. Add a little soft peachy blush to cheeks (I love Smashbox soft lights tint).

Step 6: Lips

Finish the look with a tinted lip balm. I chose the Clinique Chubby Stick in “Whole Lotta Honey” for it’s beautiful golden nude color.

Gwyneth Paltrow says no to plastic surgery…except for one procedure

Gwyneth Paltrow recently opened up to OK! Magazine about plastic surgery. The 38-year-old actress, who looks absolutely amazing, looks this way – naturally. She hates the idea of plastic surgery, but she’s NOT opposed to all surgical help!

As a devotee of brutal Tracy Anderson workouts and super healthy food, we’d imagine Mrs. Chris Martin would do anything to keep her young body.

Alas, we were mistaken: cosmetic surgery, Paltrow told OK!, is “vanity.” The only body part she might operate on, she admits, are her breasts.

“Before I didn’t care about it. And I still refuse to use silicone, Botox or other of those gimmicks out of pure vanity,” the actress said. “But a breast correction after breast feeding — why not?”

She can say what she wants, but we don’t believe for a second that Gwyneth needs any part of her body altered. The star struck a pose on the September cover of Elle, looking fresh-faced (if not a tad serious) and slender as can be.

She told the magazine, “People come up to me and say, ‘I want to have two kids and wear a bathing suit and not feel terrible about myself. I see how hard you work and it makes me feel like I can do that too.’”

Whatever she’s doing – she needs to keep it up. She looks absolutely gorgeous!

Here’s the latest cover of Elle Magazine, and she looks fantastic!!

Cindy Crawford’s new S&M Harper’s Bazaar cover!

Cindy Crawford looks pretty smoking hot for a 45-year-old mother of two!

The Daily Mail got a pic of the cover, which shows the legendary supermodel vamping in a skintight, cut-out bustier from Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2011 collection (which originally showed on the runway on top of a modest navy dress).

It’s a sexy turn for the 45-year-old model but not out of the ordinary. Cindy has said that nude modeling was “never really that big of a deal” for her and even showed off her sudsy, middle-age bod in a NSFW shoot for Allure in 2009.

Compared to pics like that, the most recent Bazaar cover is positively demure.

She looks amazing!!

New Natalie Portman ad for Diorskin!

According to Harper’s Bazaar UK, this is a new Dior ad featuring Oscar winner Natalie Portman.

In the new ad, the actress shows off her photoshopped flawless complexion for Diorskin Forever.

Portman, also the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume, presumably severed ties with the fashion house and its cosmetics line back in March, after its head designer John Galliano’s “I love Hitler” rant surfaced.

At the time, she told the New York Times, “I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”

The newspaper added, “it was not known how Ms. Portman’s contract with Dior might be affected” — making it all the more interesting that this new image was released.
