1. I’m always trying to figure out how to create a smoky eye that is more subtle/demure, less vampire/whorehouse. Love the above look, and all the products used are listed in this Glamour article. (And speaking of vampires, that actress is dating Peter Facinelli, aka Carlisle Cullen, who used to be married to Kelly from 90210, but they divorced. You know, um, just in case you were wondering…)
2. I did an easy, natural makeup tutorial at Beauty and the Beat this week with Jane Cosmetics. Bonus – my friends at Jane are giving away $100 in cosmetics to a commenter. (Not a random assortment, either. Like, you get to pick $100 worth of cosmetics from them.) I’m not really sure what deters people from entering/commenting over at Babble, but there are only 7 entries right now, so you’ve got a damn good chance of winning! You can enter here…their spring line is impressive!
4. Apparently, two of the big hair trends this year are cool tones and pastels. I tried them out on my hair for this post. (Never fear…it was Photoshop, not the real thing. Which is a good thing because yuuuuuck.)
5. I spent way too much time trying to make my hair look like a diva one morning. I was hoping for Chaka Khan, but ended up a hot mess. It was still pretty voluminous, though! What are your favorite products for volume? Mousse? Hairspray? An electrical socket?
