Amerie keeps it Neutral for Sheen Magazine!

Amerie decided to keep her makeup neutral for the beauty magazine cover of Sheen with just a pair of lashes to pop the effect. Keeping your makeup neutral is pretty easy once you have selected your foundation you can utilize contour powder to create definition on the cheek bones, the jaw line and on the nose. Applying shadows to your face will create or enhance your bone structure . 
For a neutral looking lip you can use a neutral lipstick or apply your foundation on your lips, set it with powder and you can wear it matte or add a dab of gloss. To give your eyes a neutral effect swipe an earth tone shadow in the crease to give the eye definition to stand out or you can just go bare the choice is yours.

My product pick!

A great palette for you to try out your neutral look is the Two Faced Natural Palette which is available for $36.00. This palette unlike most takes the guess work out of how to apply the shades as it comes with its very own instructions for a daytime look or if you like it classic or if you want to keep it trendy. The shades in this palette are pretty universal and can fit most if not all skin tones and you have some option of matte and irridicent colors.

Jennifer Anniston's Laser Therapy Beauty Obsession!

Have you ever wondered how Jennifer Anniston at 43, maintains her great skin? Well Jennifer let the cat out the bag when she visited The Conan Obrian show, as she revealed her obsession with laser therapy. According to the former Friends star it helped to remedy her issues with sun spots. Jennifer says you start out the first week looking like a burn victim only to have your the dead skin fall off for 8 days. Would you be up to that?
Here are some facts if you want to try out Jennifer's skin obsession.
  • You can do it at your doctor's office and it won't hurt. You can choose to do it at home by using low level emissions of laser therapy which is said to be 100% safe.
  • It rejuvenates the skin to its lustrous glow which will be revealed when the dead skin falls off.
The Disadvantages
You have to be careful when doing this procedure as if the laser emissions are too high it can cause skin burns. So you have to ensure that the technician is aware that everyone has different skin sensitivity levels. The fairer your skin the more sensitive your skin will be and will be more susceptible to burns.

After the break check out this before and after picture of how laser therapy works on your sun spots.

Today's beauty is none other than Taylor Momsen who rocked a fabulous look from her two toned deep shadow right down to her laced Marchesa dress. Taylor Momsen is known for her grunge inspired makeup looks but turned up the classy dial and blew us out of the water. The shadow application consists of deep blue on the lower lids with black for contour which draws us in to her blue eyes. Her lower rim is lined with blue liner to pull us in further and her upper lash line is lined and winged out with liquid liner. A very dramatic effect that has been pulled off nicely.

The return of The Big Hair - Kylie Minogue for Stylist Mag!

Kylie Minogue in the February issue of Stylist Magazine debuted the return of the Big Hair. I am sure the ladies in Texas would argue that big hair never really left.

For this feature Kylie did three covers for the magazine which showcased her with rollers in her hair  surrounded by an array of shoes.

Kim Kardashian got all entangled in the shipwrecked theme for Allure Magazine which hits the stands this March. In this issue Kim's makeup was toned way down to reveal her natural beauty, something that we only see if we are lucky when she goes to the gym. On Kim's website she is shown behind the scenes being sprayed by water in between shots on the set. A great tip if you want that wet look for a photo shoot , you can use a gloss hair spray on your body to give you that effect. Then you apply water for that drippy effect. 

After the break check out Kim's Allure cover which shows a toned down Kardashian in the March issue.

In this issue Laura talks about why she is over Jackie Christie and a whole host of  other stuff like her 23 carat ring from Gilbert Arenas.

Ashanti Rocks the Pocahantas!

Ashanti attended New York fashion week embodying the Disney character Pocahantas! I am not sure about the dress as it is quite revealing and a challenge to cover oneself especially when sitting. One thing's for sure Ashanti knows what it takes to make the news. You have to give it to Ashanti as her makeup is ALWAYS on point and this look is no different.

If you want to be Pocahantas for the day just like Ashanti check out this great video.

A classic Taylor Swift took to the red carpet with her up swept hair she wore her signature smokey eyes with a balanced red lip.

Kelly Rowland has been rocking the curly do for sometime now which I love. it is a welcomed change. Kelly rocked a smokey eye and nude lip which works well, can Kelly ever do wrong in the makeup department? She is always on point!
In her sequined dress that I m not really in love with, I think Carrie Underwood could have worn a more flattering dress especially with her fab physique. However, her makeup was great as it complimented her dress as she opted for a glamorous smokey eye paired with a glossy nude lip.

Adele works it out on Vogue!

Adele who graces the cover of the next edition of Vogue shows the world that beauty is not one dimensional. Sporting her trademark wing tipped liner, and beautifully contoured face Adele is a vision. This is by far one of the most glamorous shots of Adele and I believe this only the beginning of what I call the Adele evolution or revolution if you want to coin it like that. Are you loving the nude pink tone lips? Hot!!

Kate Moss Proves that she still has it!

It seems like out of nowhere Kate Moss is all over the place, from becoming the face of Mango and now to landing the double cover of W magazine. In this Issue Kate is presented in a sultry gothic look. Some refer to this look as the presentation of a demon, but really what does a demon look like? I love the boldness of her well defined lips and her spikey lashes. This look is juxtaposed to the second cover which depicts Kate in all white,which is a more religious play on Catholicism.

After the break check the second cover.
