New Contest: Chrome Girl Nail Polish Valentine Trio

Valentine Group 3A IMG_4120

Introducing the Chrome Girl Valentines Day Trio $29.95
Includes: Love Note, Pillow Talk, and Between The Sheets . Includes limited edition personalized Chrome Girl Black Velvet Bag

About Chrome Girl
Longtime friends Jaime Boreanaz and Melissa Ravo first realized their uncanny similarities years ago upon meeting in their neighborhood. Both mothers – whose young daughters incidentally became fast friends as well – found that their interests aligned perfectly.

It was one sunny girls’ afternoon while painting their daughters nails in which they realized that the product they were so carefully applying on their children’s nails would soon end up making its way into the little girls’ mouths – whether while eating, chewing on their nails, or licking off cupcake frosting. A quick scan of the ingredients of the polishes became a nauseating realization for the mothers.

In that moment, the idea behind Chrome Girl was born. A collaboration between Jaime and Melissa, and their respective husbands David and Aaron, Chrome Girl was launched in February 2013 as a fashionable alternative to the harsh and dangerous nail polishes currently on the market. It is a product that is 4-free, which means it is produced without formaldehyde, DBP, toluene or camphor. It is safe for even youngsters – but is on-trend, and ultra-cool. The debut collection boasts the hottest of colors – such as When In Chrome, Barely Legal, No Tan Lines, Shmexy and Pillow Talk, to name a few – and is intended for women of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities.

Chrome Girl is not just about nail polish. It’s about creation, expression, and designing the ultimate fashion accessory on your fingertips. It is about art, about playfulness, about having a passion for the bold.

It is the ideal melding of Jaime and Melissa’s penchant for style, their commitment to healthy beauty, and their belief that all princesses – young and old – should be able to drop a little magic fairy dust from perfectly polished fingertips.

Behind The Scenes: Brooke Burke-Charvet’s Cover Look for New You Magazine

coverlow

BEHIND THE LOOK: BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET on NEW YOU magazine’s Spring 2014 cover on newsstands now
Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes and hair stylist Paul Norton explain the natural, fresh Spring look they created for the Dancing with the Stars host

THE INSPIRATION:
“For this look I was inspired by Brooke’s radiant personality. Brooke is warm, light-hearted, playful and kind. So I wanted her look to be fresh – yet defined. I played up her natural beauty by choosing colors that were more neutral and complimented her complexion.” – Spencer Barnes for Solo Artists. Spencer’s clients include Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jessica Biel and Olivia Wilde.

A prominent Spring makeup trend, natural and nude faces softened up the Spring 2014 runways at shows including Alexander Wang, Balmain, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chloé. A neutral look allows for the clothes – and the woman – to take center stage.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK: HAIR
“Brooke’s look for her cover shoot was intended to look healthy and shiny. First, I applied Oribe Gandioes hair plumping mousse to dampened hair and tousled dry also using a medium sized round brush to round out the ends of the hair. I then took a couple of random sections throughout the hair and with a 1 1/4 inch curling iron bent the hair back away from the face and I then used Oribe Shine Light Reflection spray to give the hair a nice luster and shine. Lastly, I had Brooke flip her head upside down and I ran my hand throughout her hair and broke up the hair bringing much more life to the look. I then sealed the deal with Loreal Elnett hairspray and we were able to begin shooting!” – Hair Stylist Paul Norton for Tracey Mattingly, who has worked on celebrities including actresses Robin Wright, Brit Marling and Elizabeth Banks, among others.

Winner Announced! Lady Gaga Fame Contest

Lady Gaga Fame 3.4-900x900

And the winner is #44 Lindsay M. Please watch your email in box.

 

After the release of her fourth studio album, ARTPOP, Lady Gaga recently announced she would be going back on tour. This spring, Gaga will bring her new album to life for her fans. Her first single from the album, “Applause,” is her 12th top-ten Billboard Hot 100 single in the United States and is currently in its 11th consecutive week in the top 10. There is no doubt, Gaga’s fans are anxiously waiting for her to hit the stage and to see what excitement the ARTPOP show will bring!

In honor of this new tour announcement, MakeHerUp is excited to host a giveaway with her fragrance – Fame by Lady Gaga.

Fame by Lady Gaga ($79): The first ever black Eau de Parfum compounded by LADY GAGA with both floral and fruity notes. The scent is built around three main accords: dark, sensual and light. Enriched with tears of belladonna, a black veil of incense, and pulverized apricot, all of the notes were crafted to work together harmoniously thanks to the complimentary properties of each ingredient, which allow for a true metamorphosis of the scent when worn on skin.
