- Burton applied Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony to the upper and lower lash lines. She emphasized the shape of Jolie’s eyes by applying more liner to the outer corners of the eye.
- Several coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara were applied to the upper lashes for added volume and length.
- A touch of pink was applied to the cheeks, and cheekbones near the temple, using Shu Uemura Blush in M Pink 31.
- To create ultra-shiny and luminous lips on Jolie, Burton used Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling.
Jeanine was going for a smoky eye, and used CHANEL Silky Eye Shadow Duo in Orient Express. She used the pale pink as a base and the dark purple smoked around the eye on the lid and smudged in lower lash line.
She added CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir inside the eye, and lots of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black for thick sexy lashes. She used CHANEL Perfect Brows in Brun, using the two colours to make a strong brow, but keeping it soft.
Jeanine then used CHANEL Powder Blush in Narcisse, a flattering, bright pink shade, high on the cheek bones. She then added CHANEL Glossimer in Galactic for a more pale lavender lip. Finally, for a sexy, bronze sheen, Jeanine applied CHANEL Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed on Natalie’s arms, shoulders, and décolleté.
To set the look and add a hint of shimmer, she then applied Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Blush in in Natural Apricot to the apples of her cheeks, followed by a touch of Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Illuminator.
To create Vanessa’s soft-smoky eye, Mitchell began by applying Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes in Medium underneath the eye to rid of any dark circles, and on the eyelid as an eye-shadow base. She then used Nourishing Eye Duo in Fairy Dust, applying the darker shade to the crease and then brushing the accent shade over the entire lid up to the brow bone. Mitchell finished by applying two coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black.
To complement Vanessa’s darker eye, Mitchell applied a mixture of two pink moisture-infused lip colors – Neutrogena MoistureShine Lipstick SPF 20 in Angel’s Blush and Sheer Luck.
Dempsey used Le Base Pro Makeup Primer ($42) under Kate's foundation to create that smooth stay-put finish.
* Eyes: To frame Kate's eyes, Dempsey used Lancôme Modèle Sourcils Brow Groomer in Naturel ($21), playing up their natural shape. Next, Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pro Eyeshadow Trio in Ice Shimmer ($9) was used on the eyes, and Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pro Mascara in Black ($9.50) was swept on the lashes.
* Lips: For a neutral, sheer lip, Lancôme Color Fever Shine Lipstick in Old Flame ($25) was applied. Va va voom!

She was spotted a few weeks ago with a retro glam beauty look showcasing red lips and a leather jacket. Her hair was curled perfectly which added even more of a retro vibe, peachy natural glowing cheeks and a peek of her red bra without look over the top. The prefect natural everyday look with a retro twist.

Barbie Loves Stila Talking Palette Review. My Review for the Barbie Loves Stila Talking Palette. I give it 4 out of 5 stars due to the price being a bit high (40 dollars). Overall great palette. The colors of the eye shadows are long lasting, highly pigmented and look great on every skin tone, I wore this look for Valentine's Day and I really felt like Barbie because its such a girly palette. Look below to view swatches, and my video of the review.

Bobbi says: "this foundation offers the lightest amount of coverage without being transparent. i named it Skin Foundation because it doesn't look like foundation-- it looks like skin."
here are the complete details of this fabulous-sounding formula:
Invisible coverage-- offers a unique balance of pigments and
emollients in this lightweight formula; conceals imperfections while looking and feeling completely natural.
skin tone perfecting-- light-reflective optics instantly give skin a fresh, radiant, pore-free look.
hydrating-- a blend of glycerin and sodium hyaluronate attracts moisture to skin and locks it in.
long-wearing-- resists streaking, stays color true, and wears for up to eight hours.
Here are the shades for the collection

Face - Use a cream foundation to give skin a supple, flawless complexion. Next, apply a bit of powder to the t-zone only. This allows the outer perimeter of the skin to glow naturally. Layer on bronzer to add a glow, then follow with a bit of blush on the apples of the cheek.
“Since Queen was wearing a strapless dress, I applied a thin layer of moisturizer to her shoulders and collar bone. Then I dusted on some bronzer to make draw a bit of attention and make them shimmer,” says Sam.
Products to Try:
CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder - $8.18 at Drugstores
CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Ebony Bronze - $8.18 at Drugstores
CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Foundation - $10.99 at Drugstores
CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Blush in Shimmering Sands - $10.99 at Drugstores
Eyes - Apply a small amount of highlighter to underneath the brow bone. Then use the same bronzer as a shadow and sweep it lightly across the eyelids. Use a smokey black pencil liner to line the upper lid and then smudge it with a deep ebony shadow. Apply a few coats of mascara.
“I used barely any eyeshadow when creating this look. Very less is more,” advises Sam. “An alternative to the deep ebony shadow could be a dark navy. As always when creating an eye for an awards show or event, don’t forget your false lashes.”

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Shimmering Onyx, $3.47 at Drugstores
CoverGirl Outlast SmoothWear All-Day Eyeliner in Onyx - $5.76 at Drugstores
Lips - Line the lips with a liner that is one shade darker than your natural color. Then apply a matching shimmering lip gloss on top. Voila!
