I Want Her Makeup!

Freida's makeup looks throughout this awards season have been impeccable in that while the artists never treaded cautiously or avoided experimentation, they also never overpowered Freida's natural beauty thus allowing it to anchor each look. For your convenience - in case you'd like to experiment yourself - here is a compilation of press releases for Freida's makeup from the SAG Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTA, and the Oscars, all in one place.

HOW TO GET FREIDA'S GOLDEN GLOBES LOOK. Courtesy of Jeffrey Paul for Jouer. (Though I've covered her Golden Globes look in a separate post, thought I'd include it here for easy reference).Eyes: Jeffrey used a thick green liner with flecks of gold. He smudged the Jouer Vert eye definer very close to the lashes to frame her eyes. The soft green color complimented her eye coloring while the gold flecks in the liner tied the look together. For additional color, he added Jouer Amaretto eyeshadow in the crease of the eyelid to add definition and blended with a soft brush. The Jouer Noir mascara was used on both the top and bottom lashes to show off Freida's long thick lashes.
To get Freida's sunkissed look, Jeffrey mixed together foundation and concealer and only used on key spots to blend outward for a soft effect. The Jouer crème highlighter in Champagne was used on the brow bone and cheek bones to add additional definition and shimmer.
Lips: Jeffrey finished the look using the Jouer crème highlighter matched with the Jouer Monsoon gloss. The golden tone of the highlighter accentuated the natural pink color of her lips while the sheer deep wine gloss was the perfect compliment.

Courtesy of Joe Hopker for Lancôme.Eyes: Joe used Lancôme Le Crayon Khol in Brown on the inner rims of the eye, under the top lashes and softly under the lower lashes, followed by Lancôme Hypnôse Waterproof Mascara. Then she smudged Lancôme Ombre Absolue in Couleur Cafe under the lashes and on the eyelid up to the socket bone, finishing with a little Vaseline on top of the eye shadow to give a gloss finish to the lids. Joe used Lancôme Ombre Absolue Eye Shadow in Moonlight to highlight the brow bone.
Skin: Joe kept the look clean and simple. She used Lancôme Hydra Zen Cream to prep Freida’s skin, followed by Lancôme La Base Pro make-up primer to keep everything in place. Joe used Lancôme Blush in Framboise Sensuelle on Freida’s cheeks for a natural healthy sheen.
Joe wanted to keep them natural and used Lancôme Color Fever Gloss in Precious Beige. Joe completed her look using Lancôme’s limited edition Diva Magic Powder from the BAFTA collection on her arms, shoulders, back and décolleté to give an all over shimmering glow.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
