- Starting on wet hair, Danilo sprayed the Pantene Pro-V Root Lifter Gel on her crown to prime her hair for a voluminous shape on top
- Since Ashley was stationed outside on the red carpet, Danilo combed through the Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Frizz Control Ultra Smoothing Balm from the mid-shaft of her hair to the ends to keep it looking sleek and frizz-free despite the humidity
- After applying the balm, Danilo blow-dried her hair straight
- Danilo then pulled the top half of her hair back, using his classic French Lacing technique to give her healthy volume on top while leaving a dramatic side part for contrast
- Then he used a large iron to create her loose flowing curls underneath, combing when necessary
To hold the look in place, Danilo sprayed her hair with the Pantene Pro-V Texture Hairspray for moveable texture while she worked the carpet

Katy’s look was definitely inspired by her dress; she wore an outrageous metal spiked mesh mini by “The Blonds.” The dress reminded me of a Gianni Versace book I have called “Rock and Royalty” and the powerful iconic images in it. I wanted the eyes to evoke that type of decadent glamour and of course complement the sparkle of the dress with a little sparkle on the eyes.
We used NARS Oil Free foundation as Katy’s base and a pink shimmer Blush for some glow. We kept the lips matte so the emphasis was on her eyes, but they definitely were not without color! For the carpet, Katy wore a matte coral and for her performance and after party, she wore a matte red.
The eye look was done with black and gunmetal shadows, silver glitter and liquid liner. A great trick to wearing glitter like this, is to blend a little cream shadow onto the area where you want to place the glitter. You should do this once your eye makeup is finished. So as a last step, gently apply the glitter using your fingertip… just a little at a time in order to avoid a mess. Once finished use scotch tape to remove any excess glitter that may have fallen on the face. Press the tape gently into the skin and it picks it right up.
Katy’s lashes were ultra long and gorgeous thanks to COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara.

Containers are convent and with so many different styles and designs containers make it easy to find something that fits your needs. At the moment I'm using two containers which I will show you below. You can purchase containers at practically any store including Target, Walmart, or K-mart. Ikea also has some great container solutions for makeup.
Sterilite 3-Drawer Wide Cart, White- Walmart ( I have something similar to this in my bedroom and each draw as it's own makeup section IE blush, eyeshadow etc)
Sterilite 7-Drawer Cart, Set of 2 ( for the ones with the big collections)
Sterilite 58-Quart Storage Box, Set of 8- ( I use this also and I always put items such as makeup brush bags, and extra items I don't use everyday).
I hope these ideas help and next week I'll have even more ways you can store your makeup :)
As the seasons change, it's time for a wardrobe update. But we're not the only ones getting a seasonal makeover. The fashion-forward Harajuku Girls are back with the same fab fragrances, but this time they're bundled up for a cold winter as Snow Bunnies!
Snuggle up and channel your own Snow Bunny. G, Music, Angel, Baby or Love are each layered up with the season's most fashionable items - Love's boots are exact replicas of a pair of Vivienne Westwood's! Whether you prefer strolling the streets, hitting the slopes, or staying warm by the roaring fire, there's a Harajuku Girl Snow Bunny to fit any of your wintertime moods. But the chilly days of winter won't last forever and neither do these dolls - they're around for a limited time only! The new Harajuku Girl Snow Bunnies are $30 each and available at Sephora.com.

The thing that I love about Stila is that their eyeshadows are very vibrant and the color payoff is great. They are also very long lasting and you definitely get your moneys worth with this palette since you get 12 shades for only $28.
As for the smudge pot the packaging is cute as well. The liner is also long lasting and the little splash of pink mixed with the black is great for days when I wear my pink looks.

Smooth Eye Colour Quad
"The Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009 captures the precious singularity of golden tones with a rare depth and an unexpected eroticism, celebrating three ultra femme variations on golden translucence, anchored by the drama and depth of surreal fantasy. Dolce & Gabbana use captivating contrasts to take beauty to a new level of decadence.
A trio of modern-minded golds - Yellow Gold, White Gold and Rose Gold - glaze, flicker and interact to reveal one sublime look that is at once sexy and glamorous. “Gold has always been a Dolce & Gabbana signature,” notes Stefano Gabbana. “This collection, based on three shades of gold,” adds Domenico Dolce, “encompasses the sensual, natural and romantic nuances of surreal femininity.”
The collection includes supple textures to enchant and seduce with glints of gold from an exclusive palette of glistening to pearly tones. A harmony of effortless precision results in a look that’s irresistibly off balance - and daringly, distinctively Dolce & Gabbana."
