Kate Upton channels Marilyn Monroe in new photoshoot.


Kate Upton and the late Marilyn Monroe share an uncanny resemblance, don’t they?

The 22-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covergirl goes topless in a new black and white image, taken by photographer Sebastian Faena.

The photo was captioned “Kate Upton brushing her hair. Home NYC.”

That’s how I look when I brush my hair – FYI.

Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty Shadow Palette

The Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty eye shadow palette was personally crafted by the creator of Kim Kardashian’s signature smokey eye. This dual-textured collection boasts 4 pigment-rich matte and shimmer shade pairings designed to “cocktail” – wear alone or in any combination to create custom looks.

I like that the palette itself is smaller and can fit in my purse or gym bag. And the shadows were created to be used wet or dry depending on the look you are going for. With a collection of mattes and shimmers this has become a go to palette for my everyday wear.

Swatch of the palette from left to right is White Russian, Pearl Fizz, Rose Champagne, Cinnamon-tini, Pavlova, Cuba Libre, Blackout and Bella Notte.

I found the lighter shades were not very pigmented and didn’t show up very well. The White Russian even with 3 swipes is barely visible. I think a dab of water would make this apply a little darker though. The mid to dark shades though had great pigment and great staying power even when tested without a shadow primer. Overall I think this is a great collection every day colors and a few shimmers to kick your look up a bit. Very wearable and I will be getting lots of use from this set.

Celebrity makeup artist Rob Scheppy has stepped behind the ‘Tini Beauty bar to cocktail the definitive eye shadow palette.

This dual-textured collection features matte and shimmer pairings of Rob’s must-have hues for every occasion in richly pigmented powders that work wet or dry.

Here’s what’s on tap…
* White Russian – creamy off white
* Cinnamon-tini – terra cotta
* Pavlova – taupe
* Blackout – black

* Pearl Fizz – pearly white
* Rosé Champagne – bronzy peach
* Cuba Libre – light cola
* Bella Notte – charcoal grey
