Celebrity Makeup: Who’s Your Beauty Double?

Scarlett Johansson Red Hair Red LipsDon’t hit me, but I often get told I look like Scarlett Johansson. No, really. I started out blonde in life and when her movie The Island came out, I literally got a call from my ex-boyfriend proclaiming she was my double. (Other motives? Who knows…)

For years since then I’ve been a redhead – then blammo, The Avengers hits the box office, she’s a redhead too and the comments start up again. I’m certainly not complaining, since by the looks of ScaJo I’ll definitely take it as a compliment, but I definitely don’t think I’m on her level. However, though our features may be similar, we have totally different makeup styles.

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter Review #PerlierOnHSN

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter ReviewI received this product as part of an iFabbo membership campaign. I received no other compensation for reviewing this product. All reviews are 100% my own. 

Ladies, get ready to try the most indulgent body butter ever to come out of Italy. Perfect for winter, Perlier Imperial Nourishing Body Butter uses the honey of black bees (no really, there are black bees. Google it) combined with royal jelly to get skin buzzing with moisture.

Scent-wise, the honey notes stuck out to me most, though it includes fragrance identified as “Oriental woods” (here’s a hint to anyone out there who might be Christmas shopping for me: if the smell is described as “Oriental Woods”, I’ll love it).

Out here in the dry desert, my skin needs constant moisture, and Perlier’s thick, luxurious texture keeps that moisture in. I smooth it on all over right after my shower and I find I stay silky soft all day. Che bella!

Makeup Brush Maintenance: When Should I Clean My Makeup Brushes?

Makeup brush maintenance - when should I clean my makeup brushes?In order to keep your make-up brushes in great condition, you must take care of them. That means cleaning them correctly on a regular basis.

Make up brushes should be cleaned approximately every 2-3 months. They should be thoroughly cleansed with a brush cleaner, or you can try using a clarifying shampoo. If you have sensitive skin, you can even try using your facial cleanser, since it will be less harsh on your skin when you use them again. I like Japonesque’s Makeup Brush Cleaner. A very gentle all-natural dish soap will work too.

After cleansing, make sure to reshape the brushes immediately to avoid ruining them. Then let them air dry.

See, it isn’t that hard to keep your brushes in mint condition! Cleansing and maintaining them this way doesn’t promise that the brushes will last a lifetime, but it will definitely keep them working longer.

How To: Choose The Right Haircut

Most of you ladies have probably gotten a haircut that looked beautiful – that day, at least. But we have to live with our hair every day, not just when we’ve come straight from the salon. The key to getting a great, versatile haircut that you can wear up, down or in between is choosing one that works for your hair type. Here’s a simple guide to choosing a cut perfect for your hair type:

Jessica Alba Wavy HaircutIf you have naturally thick, wavy hair:

Choose a haircut that’s blunt across the bottom, then layered evenly throughout. (This amount of layering would look too choppy on fine hair, but it works with your thick locks. You lustrous girl, you.)

For styling: blow-dry with a diffuser attachment, then touch up those face-framing curls using a curling iron with a medium sized barrel (try 1 1/2 inch). You can also create curls all over with the curling iron, then break them up gently with your fingers to create a sexy, disheveled look.
