Maybelline's New Lasting Drama Gel Pencil For Cool White Cat Eye!

Makeup artists LOVE to add white cat eye makeup during spring + summer, but we think it's kind of glam to do it now, heading into winter--- just barely 3 weeks away.

We think model Jourdan Dunn looks GORG in white eyeliner, wearing the new makeup by Maybelline's Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil ($7.99, at ULTA).

That's a SEXY cat eye......Purr-fect!

If you're kind of shy, then just LINE the lower waterline:  Press the pencil gently against the lower lashes, working across with short, gentle strokes until you get the intensity you want.

Gel pencils are long-lasting in the waterlines.

Actress Marilyn Monroe was a GENIUS at showing off white eyeliner.

When NOT overdone, white eyeliner allows eyes to LOOK fresh + larger.

Neat + Tidy Top Knot Is Hot Hair Trend: Just Look at AMAs 2015!

Wow....Talk about a HOT hair trend. If you tuned into the 2015 American Music Awards last evening hosted by the very talented Jennifer Lopez, then you saw this super cute hair do ALL over the place.

We're talking about the TOP KNOT. So-ooooo ladylike + sophisticated.

Take a peek:

And Kendall Jenner wore the hair trend with some sexy fringe.

Plus, AMA winner Ariana Grande sporting a wavy top knot.

This feminine, polished up-do has been wild at the runways and worn by celebs at every age. Here are Lily Rose Depp + Julianne Moore looking neat + tidy in top knots.

Try adding some dry shampoo spray to locks BEFORE creating your cute top knot. It will give a bit of extra grip + volume to hair, so tresses aren't slippery when gathering into the bun

We like this one, only $4.79 at Target .

Gigi Hadid Debuts Super Cute Bob At 2015 AMA Awards But Hints It's Not A Cut?!

We LOVE Gigi Hadid's adorable BOB cut she just premiered this evening at the 2015 American Music Awards.

Her pure white cut-out dress is SO SEXY, we're NOT sure if  ANYONE were even looking at her new hair style.  Her size 4 model body is killer! She looks healthy skinny more than the mass of runway girls.

During her interview with E!'s Giuliana Rancic  pre-show, Gigi hinted that the cut might not be real. "You'll have to check back tomorrow to see if it's really short," Gigi said. "There are tricks of the trade."

We're NOT sure if the hair were tucked under somehow. Either way, Gigi looked FAB on the red carpet.

To keep the sleekness of your bob style, try John Frieda Frizz-Ease Expert Finish Polishing Serum ($6.59 + free shipping).

Glycolic Acid's Smallest Molecule Benefits Skin Better Than Rest Of AHAs

Beautiful skin is NOT a given, at least for the vast majority of us.

Repairing and rejuvenating our complexions takes a lot of smart thinking, proper skin care products and a routine you stick by.

There are proven prescription fixers like retin-A, hydroquinone and others. But there are also great over-the-counter choices like Vitamin C serum, chemical peels, retinol and tons of other products.

Today, we are looking at the KING of the AHAs or alpha hydroxy acids, because these little guys mean serious business.

Glycolic acid happens to contain the smallest molecular structure of ALL the AHAs, which means that it can penetrate the greatest into the skin and do the most valuable complexion repair.

Glycolic acid is most commonly known for use as a popular chemical peel but it can also be made into a strong cream base for nightly application.


At first, this acid can cause redness and irritation, but if you proceed SLOWLY, you will REAP all these incredible benefits.

Here's a powerful glycolic acid cream at 20% by Glycolix Elite Facial Cream ($32.40).

Here's to BETTER skin while you SLEEP.

Christie Brinkley Almost 62: Believes In Conservative "Filling" + Other Cosmetic Things

Yup.....The golden beauty turns 62 in February.

Yup.....Just want to HATE her, but Christie Brinkley appears so likable that we adore her, too.

Here's the iconic model at a book signing in Long Island Friday peddling her new beauty tome, Timeless Beauty.


Has Christie Brinkley had ANY cosmetic enhancements?

DUH.....Of course, but in her defense there is ZERO over-done here, like the silly, huge fake lips we often see today on celebrities.

She has hit the gene pool as they say, but in her new book, the famous model believes in dermal stuff like fillers + Botox  as long as you have it done with a light hand:

"I have used fillers in super-tiny doses, and just like make-up, the best ones are imperceptible.....

"Used well, they can give the overall face a lift and also diminish fine lines. I’ve used them on an indentation on my forehead – the legacy of a playground accident – and also on marionette lines around my mouth. But you must use a very small amount because over-filling removes contours and gives you a flat face."

We admire her honesty + intelligence on the topic.  Looks like a good beauty read.

Looking For Beauty Self-Expression? Try Lime Crime Makeup!

Iconic makeup artist Sandy Linter has seen a lot of famous faces in her time as a celebrity makeup artist. She has worked on iconic model Christie Brinkley and many others.

We're not sure what Sandy would say about the wild, crazy makeup colors that have worked their way into the mainstream lately, like bright blue lipstick.

But Sandy did say this about makeup + age:

In your 20's:
1. Do experiment with color

"Crazy yellow eyeshadow? You can pull it off!" at this age, Sandy told People mag. "Break all the rules."

2. Play up your lips

Sandy advises to go with the dark lipstick and super shiny glosses now, because when you get older, lips lose volume, and a deeper tone can be aging.

So then........ when you're YOUNG, go for it!

And there's a cool makeup line by founder Doe Deere that encourages young women to find their voice + empowerment with her crazy-colored palettes.

You can purchase her wild, boldly-pigmented lipstick + glitter eyeshadows online here at LimeCrime.

Don't be shy........Take a look at her HOT trendy makeup:

Lime Crime equals happy, modern makeup, and young women around the world are breaking the beauty rules. They are REALLY coloring OUTSIDE the lines.

Lime Crime lipsticks range from $17 - $20 and the glitter eye shadows cost $10.

Would you boldly go out in public wearing Lime Crime makeup?

Jennifer Lawrence: Pretty in Platinum New Do

It's so-ooooo very Gwen Stefani.

Jennifer Lawrence has transformed from her usual dirty blonde locks into a pretty, ice-queen platinum princess.

We're not sure if her stark new blonde color is a personal thing or possibly for a new movie role, but we like the platinum. Looks natural on Miss J Law.

She debuted the uber pale blond tresses at the Berlin press conference for Mockingjay Part 2.

We also like her wavy lob-bob cut.

If you're ALREADY blonde and wish to go a lot lighter like Jennifer, you could do it youself at
