Kim Kardashian’s Best Makeup Pics on Instagram

Dude – say what you want about Kim Kardashian (West), but her makeup is always fierce. Like, always. This is totally evidenced by her Instagram account, which is basically a gallery of her making the same face in different awesome makeup looks (mostly done by makeup artist mastermind Mario Dedivanovic [@makeupbymario]).

Check out a few recent makeup look favorites from Kim’s Instagram here (one of them that showcases a mulberry lipstick is even with Kanye West): Continue reading “Kim Kardashian’s Best Makeup Pics on Instagram” »

Iggy Azalea’s AMAs Beauty (And Booty)

What is it with the booty lately? 2014 was officially the Year of the Butt. We had Nicki Minaj’s desperate bid for ass-attention with “Anaconda”, a magazine no one ever heard of until Kim Kardashian’s glazed donut graced its cover, and Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez’s booty-rubbing video. Seriously, can we make 2015 the Year of the Talent? These women have it, and I’d rather see that than their rear cheeks.

Yay! Continue reading “Iggy Azalea’s AMAs Beauty (And Booty)” »

Keira Knightley’s Glamourous Hair and Makeup

I don’t believe in girl crushes, but if I had one, it’d be on Keira Knightley. I mean seriously. She is like the spawn of a faery queen and the English patron saint of ennui.

The Atonement star (I know she’s been in a billion other things, but if I were Keira I’d like it best if people called me “the Atonement star” and not “Queen Amidala’s nameless handmaiden” or “the stick figure bestie in Bend It Like Beckham“) looked her usual aloof brand of gorgeous on the cover of Glamour.

Ariana Grande’s Makeup Bag: Celebrity Makeup Tips

Ariana Grande Celebrity Makeup TipsAriana Grande has made a huge splash on the pop scene lately, but she’s been lurking in stardom for years via tween-friendly shows Victorious and Sam and Cat (now rumored to have been cancelled due to onset drama…Personally, I think it’s the high-pitched way she talks on that show *shudder*).

The super gorgeous pop star is famous for her rad set of pipes, but beauty isn’t a “Problem” for her either. Whether she’s rocking radiant red locks or her more recent ombre high ponytails, she always looks fab.

So have you ever wondered what’s in her makeup bag? Here’s the word, straight from Ms. Grande herself:

Ariana Grande Makeup How-To – Step By Step

  • LASHES: Ariana already has her eyelashes on, and recommends putting lashes on first even though that’s not the conventional wisdom so you don’t get powder in them. (I actually do my whole eye area except mascara before anything else, so I don’t fault her for this. Do what works for you!)
  • BASE: As a foundation and concealer, Ariana Grande mixes RCMA foundation (which is what they use on the set of Victorious) with her moisturizer and puts it on with your hands.
  • UNDEREYE: Ariana slathers the mixture on her “Sicilian/Italian eye bags” and wins my heart a little more.
  • BRONZER: Ariana uses one of my personal all-time favorite bronzers: BeneFit Hoola! I feel important now.
  • BROWS: Next, Miss Grande brushes her eyebrows with what appears to be an Anastasia brow brush.
  • SHADOW: Ariana uses an Anastasia brush with a flat end for all over the lids and a pointier one for in the crease. The shadow is a Too Faced duo with Cocoa Puff (currently available in this duo with Lilly) and Honey Pot ( currently available in this palette): Honey Pot on the lid, Cocoa Puff in the crease.
  • LINER: Ariana uses Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Corrupt on both upper and lower lids.
  • MASCARA: Ariana lets her lashes “Break Free” (get it? oh I’m punny) with Clinique High Impact Mascara.
  • BLUSH: MAC Pink Swoon is Ariana’s cheeky go-to. She makes fish-face when she does it to get those cheekbones.
  • LIPS: Ariana uses Inglot Soft Precision Lipliner #74 all over lips, then tops with Maybelline 14 Hour Lipstick in Fuchsia Forever.
Priceless quotes from Ariana Grande about makeup:
  • “The object is to make yourself look nothing like yourself,” Ariana quips, quoting Jenna Marbles.
  • “I put my makeup on like a five year old doing an art project.” Total respect for Ariana Grande now.
  • “I usually just use the darkness of my tired eyes for my eyeshadow.”

Ariana posted this video on Youtube all about it, where she looks a lot like she has to sneeze:

Lisa Rinna Admitted Regretting Juvederm Injections

Former Dancing With The Stars contestant and possible Nip/Tuck inspiration Lisa Rinna has admitted to regretting getting Juvéderm injections in her face. Lisa told In Touch Magazine, “We all know everyone does it! We go on Jenny Craig and do all these things to change ourselves, so why can’t we get a little filler?” Key word there being a little, Lisa.

Lisa said she realized she went too far with the injections when she saw a picture of herself, “You have to be careful. I’m a perfect example of that!” To be fair, Lisa may have confused the picture with a shot of Mick Jagger. Continue reading “Lisa Rinna Admitted Regretting Juvederm Injections” »
