Beauty with Benefits

April 15, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

Just in case you needed a good deed to justify your beauty shopping, the teams at QVC and CEW (Cosmetics Executive Women) are partnering for the Beauty with Benefits campaign to raise funds for Cancer and Careers.

Cancer and Careers empowers, educates, and provides essential tools to people with cancer so they can thrive in the workplace.

The campaign features a PSA by actress Tiffani Thiessen and a two-hour fundraiser on QVC on Thursday, April 17th at 8pm.

“Cancer in the workplace is so prevalent yet it’s an issue that rarely gets discussed,” said Thiessen. “I am excited to work with QVC and CEW to support such a worthy cause. I love that I get to use a fun thing like makeup to shed light on such a powerful message.”

During the two-hour live event viewers will be able to shop products from 19 prestige beauty brands including Fresh, bareMinerals, Philosophy, and more. (The items will also be available online)

For this initiative, 80 percent of the purchase price of donated merchandise will benefit Cancer and Careers, a charitable program established by the Cosmetic Executive Women foundation.

How to Copy Naya Rivera’s Gorgeous Purple Eyeshadow Look

April 10, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

Glee songstress Naya Rivera looked bright-eyed and beautiful at a party in West Hollywood earlier this week. Her fuss-free blown back hair (a 90’s trend that is making a big comeback) gave way to her stunning eye makeup and glowing complexion.

One thing that makes Naya’s almond-shaped eyes stand out even more than usual is the subtle trace of purple eyeshadow you see around the inner corners of her eyes. To get a similar look, we recommend smoothing on a layer of your favorite foundation, followed by a peach blush (we love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin). Dust an illuminating highlighter down the bridge of your nose and over your cheekbones for some additional glow and definition. To start your eye makeup, we recommend using an eyeshadow stick to coat your lid (try Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst), and then dusting a powder eyeshadow on the inner third part of your lid (try Urban Decay Cosmetics Eye Shadow in AC/DC). Follow by tracing a thin line along your top and bottom lashes, smudging it a bit with your finger or a q-tip (for a dramatic look like Naya’s, line your upper and lower waterlines with the same black liner). Finish by swiping on a nude lip gloss and a few coats of mascara.

How to Get Sarah Paulson’s Subtle, Beachy Waves

April 3, 2014 at 9:22 am , by

Sarah Paulson’s beachy bob with subtle ombre stole the stage (er, red carpet) at the 2014 PaleyFest last weekend. The American Horror Story star recently ditched the bleach blond look that kept our eyes peeled all season during Coven (if you were watching through your fingers, we don’t blame you) and opted for the warm brunette shade you see here.

We’re obsessed with Sarah’s hair color, which seamlessly transitions from a deep mahogany to luscious caramel, while the face-framing waves soften her strong jawline and high cheekbones. She kept her makeup sweet and simple, opting for barely-there mascara and a bold, shiny watermelon lip. For a similar lip color, try Tarte Power Pigment lip tint in Sheer Watermelon. The subtle stain is great for layering, so you can decide how bold you want your color to be, and the hydrating formula leaves your lips feeling natural, not heavy with product.

If you’re considering a short cut, check out this video to figure out which hairstyles work best with your face shape!

How to Copy Shay Mitchell’s Bright Orange Lips

March 27, 2014 at 9:17 am , by

As it turns out, orange isn’t only the new black; it’s also the new red — as we see here on Pretty Little Liars starlet, Shay Mitchell, in New York City earlier this month. We’ve seen a lot of comfy-progressive fashion trends popping up this spring that we’re ecstatic about, such as slip-on-sneakers and kitten heels taking the place of ever-present strappy sandals and stilettos.  But just because things have taken a more casual turn in the wardrobe department doesn’t mean that you have to shy away from your bold beauty tendencies.

The electric orange lips that dominated the spring runways inspired a welcomed break in the classic nude, pink, and red lips that we typically see on the red carpet. Shay’s coral-orange shade is the perfect way to ease into the trend, because the hue still carries some pink pigment. To create a similar look, we recommend using Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin. Take another beauty cue from Shay and go easy on your eyes and cheeks — an otherwise low-key aesthetic will help you pull  off this daunting beauty trend without looking like you’re trying too hard. We’ll show you how to apply such a bold lipstick color in this step-by-step video!

How To Copy Sophie Turner’s Emerald Green Eye Makeup

March 20, 2014 at 9:42 am , by

Throwback Thursday strikes again on the red carpet with Sophie Turner’s 90’s-inspired deep side swoop (trendy braid, included) at the Game Of Thrones premiere in New York City. We’ve been seeing a lot of 90’s hair-spo lately, like these minimalist ponytails from the Kate Spade runway at NYFW and Jennifer Lawrence’s sweptback hairstyle at the Oscar’s earlier this month. Sophie kept her look sleek by creating a distinguished side part and pulling the right side into a tight French braid behind her ear, letting the rest of her shiny red locks flow over her shoulder.

Another trend Sophie’s playing with here is bold, colorful eyeliner. The emerald green shade she’s wearing compliments her red hair tremendously, and definitely earns her some points for beauty bravado. Colorful makeup is fun, and way less daunting then you think! We’ll show you how to play up your own eyes with bright makeup here. 

Loving Sophie’s deep, wavy side braid? Here’s how to copy the style.
