For all you ladies who've been waiting for Butter London's Spring/Summer 2012 range you can now see a sneak peak at these 5 gorgeous neutral shades tempered by sherbert pastels and cool neutrals. All of these shades were custom blended and created backstage at Fashion Week! As always I love the British inspired names of each lacquer such as Trout Pout and Knackered. Coming soon!
Trout Pout: An opaque shade of cantaloupe, pale and retro.
Knackered: A sheer, twinkling oyster shade flecked with micro glitter particles. Looks green or purple when you rotate your finger!
Slapper: A truly teal lacquer, bold and very bright.
Disco Biscuit: Tropical hot pink with tiny iridescent glitter particles.
Bossy Boots: Light, opaque pistachio green. This season's new take on "neutral."
To radiate from within. To seem as if they're walking on water. To look glamorous whilst still capturing the natural beauty they were born with. The Golden Globe actresses last night simply took my breath away with many bringing back one of my favorite trends: ethereal beauty. Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara (ok, maybe she was channeling he dark side of ethereal), Heidi Klum, Elle Macphereson, Emma Stone rocked my fashion core. Channel and recreate the major beauty trends of the Golden Globe awards by following these steps:
First off ladies, it's all about the preparation. Unless you're divinely blessed which let's face it only a select few of us are then we have to work, work, work for perfection and that all comes down to taking care of our skin. I know it's not always a sexy topic, but at the end of the day prepping your skin with a mask or serum can really make your makeup ever better! If you don't trust me, then trust Hollywood because most of them swear by GLAMGLOW. Created in Hollywood, for Hollywood, and little people like you and me of course, the GLAMGLOW Mud Mask! Quickly becoming a b-glowing staff favorite, this miracle mask gently exfoliates your face with green tea leaves and miracle mud dredged from the exotic South of France will leave your skin glowing from the inside out.
Let's talk about the mane. Up-do's, french chignon, 60's beehive, or Elvira Adams straight, there was plenty to talk about in the hair style department. However, I'm a sucker for soft waves a la Elle Macpherson who look absolutely stunning last night in a gorgeous gown and her signature beach tousled hair. The woman doesn't look a day over 35! To recreate her soft romantic curls it's all in the tools baby and my favorite is T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand. It has a tapered barrel to allow for a loose and distressed curl that doesn't look so darn perfect which is exactly what we want! With all of T3 hair styling tools, the heat chosen remains the same throughout the entire styling process which also cuts your hair prep time in half!
According to the Beauty Counter Blog on Style.com, "women the world over are letting out a collective purr" over the Kitty Blusher Sticks from the upcoming Paul & Joe Cosmetics Spring 2012 Meow Collection that will be dropping this February. The gorgeous floral print packaging the brand is known for still remains, but what has been added is a pop up "cat in the hat" as you turn the lipstick inspired blush stick. Even though I'm on "team dog" I can't help but be won over by the kitschy-kitty-cute Meow Collection. The Paul and Joe Kitty Blusher Sticks are a cream to powder formula that comes in three different wearable shades. Glamour Puss (a pearlescent beige, ideal for highlighting), Minou (classic rose) and Catfight is a bold coral. For only $28 each, you can choose what kitty to take home from the pet store! If you fell in love wiith Paul and Joe's Kitty Lipstick from last season you'll love this!
