Before The Great Gatsby hits theater on May 10th, get Daisy Buchanan‘s makeup (played by lead actress Carrie Mulligan, sided by the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio) from this latest novel-to-the-big-screen romantic drama.
As you can see, Daisy’s makeup is very delicate and feminine, but holds power at the same time. The story takes place during the 1920′s, but in this modern film version of The Great Gatsby, the makeup does not take on the particular extreme-retro look that was seen in this era of the ‘20s.
It is modified into more …
If you’ve seen the trailer to Halle Berry‘s new suspense film, The Call (released this weekend on March 15th), then you sure will want to get her sultry eye makeup look. She plays the main character, Jordan Turner, a 911 operator, so this particular makeup is more of a daytime look suitable to wear to work or just on a Saturday afternoon spent shopping.
Even though her makeup appears to be quite simple, it enhances her intense and powerful expression throughout the film. Here are all of the key steps to …
It’s February already, and Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Instead of doing the traditional bold statement of a classic red or pink lip and smoky/dramatic eye, try a different approach and go back to the basics.
Focusing on the makeup that Jessica Alba has maintained throughout the years — keeping it warm, glowing and luminous — we are going to create a soft, flawless, pure makeup look that can be appropriate for any occasion. This look is not about transformations, it’s more about enhancing the features you already have and …
Wes Anderson‘s most recent film, Moonrise Kingdom, has gotten major press since debuting as the opening film at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Most of us remember his most famous film The Royal Tenenbaums back in 2001, with Gwyneth Paltrow playing a kooky character — dressed in a fur coat and mod 60′s black eyeliner. Wes has continued onto the same path with bold makeup statements that are consistently portrayed throughout his new film. Quite creative and catchy, he has also created a very youthful and vibrant, but very subtle, …
BeautyStat‘s resident ‘Curl Gurl’ is back! I recently received a box at work and opened it to find the new line of hair care products from Dr. Miracle’s Curl Care line for review (available at Sallybeauty.com, $8.99 each). The line comes in very durable, plastic bottles with very cute, pink packaging — and MAN do they smell delish (coconut meets minty gum!).
Clearly, my curls have a mind of their own and I let them run wild. They’ve seen their share of gel, but never curl creams until now. I would …
The Giorgio Armani “Luce The Armani Light” Spring 2012 makeup collection is all about the way light brightens the face; I have been wearing the Giorgio Armani Supreme Lasting Wet Shine lip gloss in Rouge, so when I was given the new Spring 2012 collection to review, I was tickled pink…literally.
Once again, pastels are dominating the spring collections, but gold takes center stage here with soft pastels being updated with hints of antique gold. The two new eye palettes, with “Luce d’ Oro” pigments, have an added dimension of luminosity due …
We reviewed hundreds of great hair products this year and we’ve narrowed down the best of the best. Check out our round-up below.
BEST SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean
Pure Clean Shampoo & Conditioner: The formulation has no parabens, silicone or dye and promises a cleansing experience that doesn’t weigh the hair down. It really does that and more. My hair felt super squeaky clean and the smell was divine. Add to that that the shampoo leaves behind less residuals, and you have a win win. The bottles are made of …

I always like Halloween as it a holiday where anything goes in my book in terms of playful make up. I also enjoy that no one considers it taboo if I look too garish or wild. This is one of the only times of year that I get to mix glitter, false eyelashes, glow in the dark lipstick with sprayed color in my hair and actually walk out of my building.
Instead of buying a beauty palette at my local Department store, I opted for affordable choices from my nearest Duane …
