mark Spokeswoman Lauren Conrad made her mark at the 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards on Sunday presenting the Style Award to mark Celebrity Stylist Britt Bardo (who’s first capsule collection for mark debuted this month (www.meetmark.com). Lauren’s fresh-faced and super trendy look can be recreated thanks to Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Nadine’s beauty secrets.

How to Get Lauren Conrad’s Cheeky look:

Inspiration

“In honor of stylist Britt Bardo, Lauren mixed rocker-chic with a girly-glam! Her floral bubble dress was paired with studded punk-inspired pumps and her braided half-up hair-do contrasted perfectly with her hot pink lips.”

Face

“For her cheeks, I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky, a perfect true pink cream blush, on the apples of her cheeks. I then dusted mark Twinklebelle in Rose, a shimmery pearlized powder, above her cheekbones and along her collar bone and shoulders to give her skin an overall youthful glow.”

Lips

“To get Lauren’s bold lip, I filled in her entire lip with mark Kissink Lip Tintmarker in Berry Bitten. This lip stain is a favorite of mine and Lauren’s as it lasts all night without every being dry or flaky. Finally, I added a top coat of mark Lip Exotics Lip Lacquer Hook Up in Pop to give her pink lips a luscious, wet, finish.”

Eyes

“To balance out Lauren’s pink lip, I applied a thick line of mark Get In Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black. I wanted to keep the emphasis on her winged-out cat eyes, so I left her lower lash line undefined, except for a coat of mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven applied to her top and bottom lashes.”

Make Her Up introduces Kings & Queens Body Milks & More!

I’ve tried a few Kings & Queens products in the past, and I was really impressed with each one! Recently I was sent 2 of their new Showergel’s – and I’m in love! They come in these big 10 oz. bottles, and each have a great design on the label.  What I love most about these showergels is the scent. It stays with you long after you get out of the shower.  I tried Chinese Princess Jasmine  – and Sultan of Granada Lemon Flower, and they are amazing! I couldn’t tell you which one I like more.  They are awesome!

Get ready like a royal, start the day like a sovereign, make like a monarch. Kings & Queens is a royal new body care range developed around the herbs and spices favored by the aristocracy of a bygone age.

Kings & Queens introduces Body Milks, Showergels, Body Butters, and Shimmering Body Milks, each with a story to tell. From Nefertiti Honey, inspired by the Egyptian Queen who used the Nectar as an indulgent beauty treatment, to Cinnamon, the spice beloved by Queen Isabella of Spain that prompted Columbus’s trip to discover the new world, the creators of Kings & Queens took inspiration from the beloved ingredients of yesteryear.

The line reflects the true decadence of royals past with an imaginative, modern twist. This fun, irreverent range of beauty products is for fashion, style and design conscious urbanites who are always on the lookout for an affordable statement choice.

All Kings & Queens products are mineral oil-and paraben-free and enriched with “The Royal Mix,” a blend of Pomegranate, Blue Egyptian Lotus and Malachite extracts containing Hazelnut, Grape, Sunflower and Avocado Oils. The purple fruit of Pomegranate, with benefits of Polyphenolic compounds and Vitamin C, has a crown-like top, which is why it is displayed on the coat of arms of many Royal Houses. The flower of the Blue Lotus was the most popular ancient Egyptian symbol of glory and eternal life for gods and mortals alike containing bioflavonoids, such as quercetin and rutin and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Malachite was used by Russian Tsars to decorate their palaces to lend extra energy and bring harmony by detoxification the body and healing skin tissue.

Steal this look: Lauren Conrad

screenshot006.jpg

mark Spokeswoman Lauren Conrad made her mark at the launch of her new fashion line for Kohl’s this week! Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Nadine spills all her secrets for creating Lauren’s feminine yet edgy look.

How to Get Lauren Conrad’s Dramatic look:

Face

“I started by powdering Lauren’s entire face with mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Natural/Buff, and then lightly dusted the apples of her cheeks with her favorite, mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby. To add more definition to her cheekbones, I added a contouring layer of mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.”

Eyes

“Lauren never strays from her signature winged-out cat eyes, so to add some instant drama, I complimented them with a black ‘smoky under-eye’. Blending is key for this look and edges should be smeared to add depth. I started by lining her eyes with mark Get in Line Waterproof Liquid Liner in Painted Black. Then I used mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet a few millimeters past the outside corners of her lower lash lines. I drew a thick line that became thinner as I dragged it inward, stopping 3/4 of the length of her eye. I then smudged it gently with my pinky finger to smoke it out. Next, I took my mark Eyeliner Brush and dipped it in mark I-Mark Custom Eye Shadow in Corset dusting it on top of the line a couple times to make the original line even thicker. Then I coated her lashes with mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven.”

Lips

“I completed her look by applying mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Skinny Dip followed by mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Gold for a glossy, shimmery finish.”
