And the adoration continues for the chic, luxury and unabashadly results-driven range, RODIN olio lusso. Everytime I flip open a magazine one of Linda Rodin's cult products is being featured in the beauty sections and there is no sign of it stopping anytime soon. So, I wasn't the least bit surprised when flipping through Elle magazine to see Rodin by Recine Luxury Hair Oil featured in a section regarding the products to be used to get sleek and super straight hair seen on the catwalks of Prada and Stella McCartney at New York Fashion Week this February. After straightening hair, simple work a tiny bit of this miracle oil from ends to roots to seal in the sleek look.

If you're not on the ombre nail trend right now might I appeal to you to take a gander. Never before have nails been in the spotlight as much as makeup and I simply can't get enough of it. Thanks to brand The New Black, the guesswork is all taken out of it. Instead of wondering what shades will look the best together they have reasonably priced, ready made ombre kits for the taking. What are ombre nails? Basically a transition of color going from your pinky to your thumb or you can do a dual coated nail where the bottom half is black and the top is black glitter, etc. You catch my drift. Whether your favorite colors are blacks, grays, blues, golds and so forth The New Black Ombre Nail Sets offer five polishes in a light to dark palette. This brand was recently featured in Cosmopolitan so you know there is no other way than ombre!

The French seemed to steal the limelight and most of the awards at the 2012 Academy Awards, but none more so than Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin. The suave frenchmen looked just as debonair in real life as he did playing his silent film character in The Artist, which also won Best Picture. He looked regal from head to toe which came with a bit of help from a stylist and Talika! Celebirty stylist Louise Moon created his dapper look from shoes, to suit to skin! To ensure Jean looked bright-eyed for his big night she applied Talika's Eye Therapy Patch which helps to minimize dark circles and puffiness. These eye patches really get around Hollywood with co-best actor nominee Brad Pitt being a lover of this product to awaken tired eyes. Truly a red carpet Hollywood beauty secret...

If you hung out with me last night for our live tweeting of all the fashion and beauty looks as soon as they hit the carpet at the 2012 Academy Awards then you will know there was quite a bit of elegance and glamour. The awards show season runs over the course of a couple months with the main event, the Oscars, being the most important both from a career perspective as well as in fashion. Everybody knows you're supposed to save the best dress for last, but there were a few who played it safe and did the same darn thing again (Jolie AGAIN in black) and Emma Stone taking a slight copy-cat nod to Nicole Kidman's dress she wore to the awards in 2007. Ok, ok, Emma's was reddy-fuschia while Kidman's was classic red. Same, same but different....not really in this case.
The big color trends in gowns was an all out rival between the whites and the reds, with a few other colors thrown in for good measure. Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Emma Stone all went for darker hues while Gwyneth Paltrow, Milla Jovovich, Jennifer Lopez, Giuliana Rancic and Rooney Mara all stuck with angelic creamy whites that proved to be a bold contrast against the red carpet. In terms of style of the dress, I have to say the whites took it home with two of them winning best dressed and best overall look in my opinion.
The one beauty trend I saw repeated with a vengeance was the 'ode to classic Hollywood' red lip with darker shaded in eyebrows and minimal other makeup. This is one of my absolute favorite looks which could be achieved easily with Jouer's Hydrating Lipstick in Simone and Kevyn Aucoin's Precision Brow Pencil. In the hair category, I noticed that bangs are back with a...well... bang. Big ones that start from the back of the crown combined with the far over side part seen on Rooney Mara, Rose Byrne and Ellie Kemper.
Although there were many hits of the night, I found it nearly impossible to narrow it down to just one as I loved someone's hair but not necessarily their dress and I'm far to indecisive to pick a favorite. So, all in all my absolute favs were (in as much order as I could muster).....Giuliana Rancic in couture Tony Ward. Her dress and overall look literally took my breath away. The E! host really earned Best Dressed in my opinion. Next, Milla Jovovich who also brought the Hollywood glamour in a white beaded couture Elie Saab number and red lip too of course! See, it's all about the white dress this year! Next, I'm afraid to say Jennifer Lopez. This woman is the epitome of sexy in Zuhair Murad with her hair pulled back tightly off that gorgeous face. Some may think this is to sheer or to sexy for the Oscars but there is nobody else who could wear this dress and rock it than Miss J.Lo! My one lady in red, Michelle Williams looked ravishing in a backless Louis Vuitton gown and her signature Mia Farrow-esque hair teamed with another red lip perfected this look. She's had quite a bit of misses this award season it was nice to see her really shine that night.
And by default I have to include our girl Gwyneth Paltrow because she always nails a red carpet from head to toe, Octavia Spencer who proved a curvier girl can make fashion sexy and....Stacy Keibler. Don't really know who she is but her beau George Clooney and her earned best dressed couple. All in all it's safe to say this was a night befitting of Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth if we look to the classic Hollywood glam that took over the fashion and beauty trends seen at the 2012 Academy awards.

Judging from the spring and summer fashion shows, 2012 will be a year of fascinating duality. For instance, while some designers selected bright, pop-art lips, others chose to apply just lip conditioner for a natural look. Certain trends (cat eyes, 1950s glamour) will carry over from 2011, while others (full eyebrows, 3D cosmetics) are newly popular. Here are the top beauty trends for 2012, along with product recommendations that can help you stay ahead of the curve:
This is one trend that’s here to stay. Feline eyes graced the Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Louis Vuitton shows. It takes a steady hand and plenty of practice to draw sharp cat eyes on one’s eyelids – not to mention an exceptional product that won’t smudge and leave you looking more like an alley cat. ELLIS FASS eyeliner is excellent for this application; it transforms from a liquid to a matte powder. You get the best of both worlds: liquid for easy application, and powder for staying power.
If you’re especially daring, choose a bright hue for your cat eyes. The Derek Lam show showed how this retro eye style can be edgy if you choose an eye-popping shade of eyeliner. Jemma Kidd Makeup School’s Crushed Jewel Gel liner is a great product. It’s available in diamond, onyx and azure tones, each of which contains glitter, so there’s really no way to ignore a bright stripe of this liner.Read More »

Tracy is actually starting a new phase of her life, becoming a mom, but she's still sticking to her program and keeping a healthy and energetic body thoughout her pregnancy. Tracy was just featured in March's Allure magazine where she mentions her diet, preferred workout attire and her healthy outlook on remaining physically fit. You may also recognize Tracy as she's the body featured in brand Prtty Peaushun's marketing materials and I'm sure you can see by the photo below why it was so easy for it's creator Bethany to choose her. Prtty Peaushun is a skin tightening body lotion that camoflages cellulite, covers stretch marks, enhances any muscular curviture and leaves a beautiful natural tan in it's wake. Best of all it contains light reflecting particles that create a luminous and ethereal glow behind.

Hollywood hairstylist Adir Abergel amongst other beauty tastemakers gathered their "favorite things" they swear by in March's Allure magazine. Adir likes to keep his styling kit neat and meticulously organized so he only wants the items that will get the job done fast and efficiently. A couple of his must-have items include a Mason Pearson brush to "leave a beatiful finish for straight hair" and Frederic Fekkai's Sheer Hold Hairspray because it "doesn't matte the hair and leaves a nice finish that you can still run your fingers through." Makeup artist Kate Lee mentioned her current essentials as well such as Kevyn Aucoin's Shading and Contouring Powder. Although she considers it a professional tool it really helps to create depth and dimension around the eye socket, cheekbones and jawline. There you have it, picks from the pros!
