Shop Talika here!
Gorgeous actress Emily Van Camp from the dramatic hit drama 'Revenge' looked absolutely gorgeous at the 2012 Emmy Awards this past Sunday with her honey blonde hair swept back and diamond floral earrings. Her makeup was flawless as done by Leila Lou perfume creator Rosie Johnston and she also had a little help from Talika! Classic, 1920's glamour was the inspiration behind Emily's overall head to toe look. Big, defined brows and big lashes were of course a beauty signature of that era so Rosie used the Talika Eyebrow Extender as well as Eyelash Extender. Both of these utilize teeny rayon fibers that cling to lashes and brows to fill in sparse areas and give the appearance of thicker, longer hairs. Lastly, prior to applying the Eyelash Extender, Talika's new Heated Eyelash Curler was used to bend the lashes and make the curl last all night.
Every season I look forward to seeing the latest fashion and beauty trends seen on the runways at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. From the crazy monobrows, sultry cat eye, to the big bouffant hair, there's always a certain look that catches my eye and I know I'm going to be attempting to recreate it at home. However, with that comes its trials and tribulations if you don't have the exact brands that were made to take these models from ordinary (ok, not all of them) to extraordinary. Our latest giveaway answers all those problems by giving alway the very same products used to create some of the hair, nails and makeup looks seen at the Spring 2013 runway shows. Without further adieu, these are the items one lucky winner will take home in this $400 prize:
Butter London was responsible for many of the gorgeous nails at Erin Featherston, Kaleen, Band of Outsiders and more. Our favorite look was the cosmic inspired nail seen at VEDA. A mix of Sloane Ranger, Toff, Knackered and Union Jack Black worked together to create a celestial effect with a sharp, glossy black stripe for a geometric effect. All of these are part of the prize!
T3 hair tools are well respected by hair professionals and customers alike so it's pretty easy to surmise that it's the go-to brand to create gorgeous hair at the shows. This was the case at the J. Mendel Spring 2013 show which was all about the strong female with polished and shiny hair with dented waves. The first step to create this was the T3 Featherweight 2 hair dryer. One lucky winner will win this before its even launched on b-glowing! It delivers lightening fast drying while reducing frizz and amplifying body and shine.
If there's a makeup brand that's meant to be seen on the runway its Ellis Faas. Highly pigmented shades and bullet style packaging makes it convenient for a busy model or everyday woman on the go. Used at indie fashion designer Keo's show, you'll be able to win three of the items used: Creamy Eyes in E107 in neutral greige, Ellis Faas Eyeliner in E501 and Milky Lips in L205.

Shop Jack Black's male grooming products here!
It takes enough arm pulling to get the men in our lives to wash their faces. I've figured out that as long as you can keep the routine uncomplicated and the product aromas masculine, guys that are a little unsure about male grooming can be more easily persuaded to pick up an exfoliating loofah or facial moisturizer. I have to admit, they're slowly coming around, especially after they see how different their face looks and feels when they use the right products. One of our ranges that is perfect for a male that doesn't like fussing is Jack Black. From the dude-ish black, white, and blue packaging to the DIY Power Peel that took home a Mens Health Award Winner for Best Peel, the entire range will quickly become as easily loved as your man's tool shed.
A few stand-outs include Jack Black's Beard Lube Conditioning Shave. Breaking out of the traditional trappings of shaving, this pre-shave oil offers an entirely new way to shave and you don't have to worry about post shave dryness or razor burn. It's see through texture allows you to see where you're shaving so you can avoid those dreaded nicks and cuts. The sun ages us all and it's just as important for me to stay protected as it is for us females. Jack Black's Double Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 is lightweight and provides lasting hydration and protection without oiliness or heaviness. After shaving is the best time to apply this award winning product.
Jack Black is the perfect men's grooming range for a guy that wants simplicity and total effectiveness!
