First of all, please excuse the lack of posts this week, I did not have time to update as often, as I usually do. But I think that next week everything will be back to normal.
But I did not want to miss the Photo Of The Weekend, plus there is something I really wanted to share.
Ok, this is technically not my photo but… When I watch a film/ TV show, I always look at makeup/hair/nails, of course.
And below you can see Cameron Diaz in The Counselor.
I don’t want to give away the plot, but such image really suited Malkina, Cameron’s character. I loved the attention to the details. Her silver nails, undercut, massive accessories, and her amazing wicked eye liner and a dot on the
Did you get a chance to catch up on the looks from MET Gala 2013? It was interesting to see how celebs or, rather their MUAs and stylists, interpreted this topic.
Here is what Jenn says about the look:
“It was Emily’s idea to do pink! Her dress was black so we decided to bring out the theme of the gala by playing up her hair and
I am not sure about you, but I’ve spend pretty much all my lunch break looking at the photos from the Golden Globe 2013: dresses, makeup, hair and makeup. To tell the truth, I always do that after an event.
Here is actually the makeup breakdown for two most gorgeous actresses – Emily Blunt (I am very lucky to get the details about her makeup quite often; that makes me happy as I love her a lot) and Jessica Alba.
Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant, available in five more shades. Will be a part of the Spring collection.
Both wore Hourglass Cosmetics, including the new Ambient Lighting Powder, and they could not make a better choice!
Golden Globes nominee ( for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen) Emily was wearing gilded dress by Michael Kors. According to her makeu-up artist, Jenn Streicher, she wanted “smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.”
So here are the products that Jenn used:
Jenn began by using Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate.
She then primed the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory.
She used two shades of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: Fair, a light shade, was used around the nose and as a highlighter, and Sand, a slightly darker shade, was applied under the eyes. Jenn completed the skin by applying the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light all over the complexion.
Jenn applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. She then used the bronzer shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and jaw line. The blush shade from Illume was applied onto the cheekbones.
She started by lining eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso and softened the line with a brush. Jenn then applied the shell shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a highlight on the brow bone and followed with a matte brown eye shadow on the lid.
Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was applied to the lashes to volumize, lengthen and separate them. She then amplified the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.
Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Edition, a soft

I have the details about how you can re-create the looks of Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks at Emmy’s 2012 which were created with Hourglass Cosmetics.
Makeup by Vanessa Scali
“I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress (Christian Siriano) and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.”
Vanessa began by using Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. She then applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell – the formula is effortless to apply and made her skin look natural and flawless. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary.
Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.
For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye.
Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes.
She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.
She gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.
