We all want a healthy, luscious and a glossy shine to our hair but we don't always get that when we tackle the journey of trying to find the perfect haircare products that will work for us. I find a lot of the times I'm swapping hair brands to find the perfect combination but that could change thanks to GLOSS Moderne. This brand specializes in four key products that in conjunction will deliver runway worthy style and hair care indulgence. Each product is rich in keratin and panthenol that helps to create a glossing effect like no other. This is a brand for a woman who appreciates luxury as well as the most technically advanced formulas in haircare available. The most standout product in the range is the GLOSS Moderne High Gloss Masque which is a superior moisture treatment that will de-frizz and coat the hair shaft with a soiree worthy shine!

The Art of Shaving

Posted on 02/22/2012

Here at b-glowing we realize that a lot of time in the beauty world men tend to get left out. Now more than ever the blue collar or metrosexual male is taking more interest in looking after their skin and using products geared towards issues that men tend to suffer from. One of the beauty rituals men tend to do most every day is shave and a lot of the products on the market can cause in-grown hairs, razor burn and nicks and cuts along the neck line. As always, a big difference can be noticed when using the right products so we are proud to announce our first product range for men, The Art of Shaving. This luxury shaving range is very debonaire, from the packaging, to the product scents, to the classy and old school Pure Badger Brush barbers use to brush shaving cream on their customers. With different types of products to choose from, The Art of Shaving centers around 4 essential shaving steps to deliver a clean-close shave: Prepare...Lather Up....Shave....and Moisturize!

The New Black Ombre Nail Shades in Cosmopolitan!

Posted on 02/27/2012

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!

Jean Dujardin De-Puffs With Talika for Oscars!

Posted on 02/27/2012

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...

Style and Beauty Trends Seen At The 2012 Oscars

Posted on 02/27/2012

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.
