Nicole Kidman seems to have had a little bit of a makeup malfunction recently…

Most of her looks great, I mean nice hair, nice earrings, there’s just one problem, crazy face powder! Looks like some makeup artist might be getting fired.

With 2010 coming you want to look fresh and ready for a new start. So say goodbye to last years smoky eyes and orange lips, and get ready for the new looks of the future!

Strong brows.

This picture shows strong brows perfectly, and it even shows metallic eyes too!

Over plucked brows are just so blah! The look now? Think and framing.  To get perfect brows take a pencil and line it up with were your eyes stop, that is were your brow should end. Then look straight forward and line a pencil up to the end of your pupil, that is were your brow should curve. After that just fade out to a tip. Always remember to only pick stray hairs on the bottom of your brow, never the top.

Metallic eyes.

You don't have to make your metallic eyes this crazy to have them be fabulous.

The cutest new look for eyes right now is all in the metal. If you have darker skin choose a  deep gold or copper, but if you have a lighter skin tone go for silver or light  gold. One look that I like to use is a light silver on my lids and a deep gold on my crease. It makes my eyes pop!

Plum lips.

Plum lips are just oh so glamorous!

Say goodbye to boring nude and pink lips, because plum is the new thing. It’s so surprising and flattering that it will turn heads (don’t worry, I mean in a good way!). If your afraid to try it out wear it to a party first. After you see everyone’s reactions you can decide if you want to wear your purple lipstick again, or not.

Bronzed cheeks.

Rihanna looks healthy, and beautiful with her bronzed cheeks.

Bronzed, sun-kissed cheeks are all the rage with winter. Choose a shimmery one 2 shades darker then your natural skin tone to keep from looking like a clown. To apply it right sweep it up from the side of your nose up to the sides of your cheek bones.

So look absolutely stunning this new year, with these fabulous new looks.

Shine sprays are great because they can make your hair wonderfully

This is the best shine spray I have ever in my life used.

shiny. But they can also be a pain because when they don’t make your hair shiny, they make it greasy. When I saw a commercial for Ice products by Pantene I knew I just had to try this one.

Normally when I put on shine spray I put a pea sized drop on my finger and use that on my whole head. What I love about this spray is that I can spray it all over my head and not have greasy or weighed down hair. Another thing I love about this shine spray is how nice it makes my hair smell! The one problem that there is with this spray is that it can make hair a little chunky if you don’t brush your hair out after you use it.

Pros

  • Smells great.
  • Gives great shine.
  • Makes hair soft and tangle free.
  • Isn’t greasy.

Cons.

  • Can make hair a little dry at the ends.

All in all I’d give this shine spray 5 out of 5 stars.

*****

Want beautiful, clear, soft, subtle skin? Try an at home facial steam!

be carefull not to get too close, 8 inches is how far your face should be from the steam.

  1. Get a bowl of steaming hot water from the tap.
  2. Squeeze in a couple drops of lemon juice.
  3. Place a towl over your head to catch the steam.
  4. Let the steam do it’s work fro 10 minutes.
  5. Wash your face and then splash it with cold water.

Facial steams are good because they open up your pours. When your pours are opened up all the dirt and oil that cuases pimples and blackheads can come out easier, and so when you wash your face after the steam, your really just washing away all the impurites in your skin. And the lemon you put in? That helps to get rid of scars and erase blackheads. The only problem with these steams is that becuase they open your pours so much they can be very drying, so only do one once every 1 or 2 weeks.

So get a beautifully clear skin with a facial steam!

So you walk in to Sephora, all excited, and you find… 40 dollar lipgloss. WHAT? You can’t believe

I love lip glosses that come in a little tube, they're easy to keep in your jeans pocket, and if you loose htem you don't feel as bad.

your eyes! I mean 40 dollars for a lipgloss!? You walk out of the store, your head drooping, defeated. Sound like you? I know I’ve been surprised by the mind blowing prices in that store. But lipgloss is neccesary in the winter monthes, not only to keep you looking fly, but to keep your lips soft and smooth. So were do you find the best affordable lipgloss? Let’s take a walk in your local Walgreens.

Yesterday I headed down to Walgreens to get a new shampoo and conditioner, but decided I needed a new lipgloss while I was down there. I walked past the rows of covergirl, maybeline, and Lorreal, all the lipglosses were still to pricey! And then in a little rack with the big words “DEAL ALERT!” on it, I thought I might have found the one. I looked down and discovered “Squeeze’ n Shine” by jordana, for $1.99. Why not, I thought? 10 minutes later I was driving home and took off the cap to smell the lipgloss. YUM! It smelled just like candy! And it even tasted good, not nasty and sour tasting like other lipglosses can be. I think I met have found the most perfect lipgloss ever!

So shine this winter with super tasy, super shiny, super cheap lipgloss!

Uggs are the ultra comfy, super cute, shoes of the season. But with majorly big price tags, most people

The Uggs from costco are basically the same!

have found altearnitive shoes, or “fuggs”. Fuggs are basicly any shoe that is an ugg look alike. But where to find the best quality Fuggs, not to mention the least pricey Fuggs, can be a challenge. Luckily, you can learn by my experience.

The other day I was with one of my close friends Micheala. And all of a sudden I noticed what I thought to be Uggs. “Hey Micheala, where  did you buy your Uggs?” I asked, because I am a beauty and fashion fanatic, and come on Uggs are Uggs. “Oh, these aren’t Uggs, these are Fuggs, I got them at Cosco!” she replied. Costco? I mean come on, Costco? In my experience, the only things I have bought from Costco were food! But of course I just had to have a pair for myself, and with a fantastic price of only $35.00, I could afford to. And, to my surprise, they were the best Fuggs I have ever seen, let alone try on. Made with genuine australion sheep skin, the were practicly Uggs without the name!

So rock “Fuggs” with the best ones out there!

I couldn’t find the Costco uggs online, but the next time you go to Costco, just look for them, I’m pretty sure they’ll be there.
