Gadzooks, We’re Putting Our Makeup On Backwards!

So, picture it, I’m putting on my makeup last night (fascinating right?)—mostly doing the same, exact thing I do every freaking time. Clearly, I need to change up my “look”—but that’s a whole different post. Anyway, the application order goes something like this: Clarins Flash Beauty Balm, concealer, bronzer/powder, eyeliner (I’m way into navy liner these days), mascara, blush and lipgloss. No deviation whatsoever. Apparently, I’m a bit in the wrong—you are supposed to do your eyes before everything else, even your foundation/concealer, or so says makeup artist Kate Lee (she’s glammed up every Hollywood starlet from Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley to Diane Kruger and Sienna Miller): “I like to do the smoky eye before starting any other makeup.

What about you gals, do you have a make-up application formula? It looks like mine is sort of all wrong. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »

How Can We Score A Copy Of “Fine: The Basics Of Beauty” DVD?

Sam Fine is a makeup pro whose career has spanned more than 10 years. He’s made up almost everyone, including Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams, and Jennifer Hudson. So we were totes excited to learn he’s releasing “Fine: The Basics of Beauty,” a DVD version of his Fine Beauty, which promises to help the everyday woman get dolled up and look naturally gorgeous. The makeup master lets us in on the secret to bronze-y skin, pouty lips, and perfectly-arched brows by making up three women with different skin tones and beauty needs. Sounds exciting right? Well, in an evil plot to keep us from becoming our own Sam Fine, his website says the DVD was released last month, but we can’t find it anywhere. Who is this twisted person that would dangle a gem like this in front of our faces, but not deliver? We will keep checking Amazon, because when it comes to looking fine, we won’t be deterred!
