This spring, Salma Hayek‘s NUANCE line, available only at CVS, introduces NEW hair and skincare items to firm your skin and enhance the health of your natural hair. Salma was inspired by her grandmother to create a line that enhanced the nuances of every woman’s individual beauty.

Blue Agave Curls & Waves Shampoo — This sulfate-free formula gently cleanses without over-drying, infusing the hair with moisture.

The fortifying formula provides deep hydration, reviving the natural coil and formation of wavy hair. High levels of moisture and hydration allow for easy detangling and combing.

Blue Agave Wave Enhancing Styling Swirl — This dual gel and cream formula revives waves and allows them to flow freely for hair that is natural and soft to touch without a crunch-like texture. Botanical extracts add natural shine and suppleness, while polymers enhance bouncy waves and preventing frizz. This super-hydrating formula protects hair during heat styling.Review: NUANCE By Salma Hayek 2014: Age Affirm Firming Neck, Eye, Day/Night Balm, Blue Agave Curls & Waves Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Swirl, Healthy Shine Nourishing Oil

Bamboo Extract Straightening Balm — A lightweight formula straightens hair and controls frizz for a smooth, lasting and polished style. A unique polymer enhances humidity resistance, extending the vitality of heat-styled hair without weighing it down.

Review: NUANCE By Salma Hayek 2014: Age Affirm Firming Neck, Eye, Day/Night Balm, Blue Agave Curls & Waves Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Swirl, Healthy Shine Nourishing Oil

Healthy Shine Nourishing Oil — This rich, waterless treatment oil instantly and deeply penetrates the hair to restore health and shine to lackluster hair follicles. A blend of 5 rich oils creates a modern, weightless texture with powerful nourishing benefits. Color-Lock Technology with UVB absorbers protects color from fading during heat styling and exposure to damaging UV rays, preserving hair strength, shine and color.

Soy Protein Primer Spray — This light primer formula smooths hair to equalize its porosity. With improved hair elasticity, the primer allows for even distribution of styling products. By sealing open cuticles, the primer creates a faster drying and longer lasting style. Hair fibers are detangled immediately, due to the high levels of hydration and nourishment the primer yields. A combination of nutrients results in a vibrant, healthy, shiny, and voluminous look.

The Best HairStyles And Makeup Looks From Last Night's 2014 MTV Movie Awards: Mila Kunis, Jordana Brewster #bstat Trends

If you caught the MTV Movie Awards last night, then you know that there were plenty of awesome beauty looks to be seen (besides just Zac Efron’s abs, beauties). Congrats to the always-beautiful Mila Kunis for winning the MTV Movie Award for Best Villain! She also takes home the award for best hair in our book, too.

Celebrity stylist Renato Campora got Mila ready for her moment in the spotlight and reveals his secrets to easily achieving this look at home, so you can have your own amazing hair moment. Renato was inspired by Mila’s past That 70’s Show days and opted for a dramatic look that framed her face while still feeling soft and effortless. Here’s how to get the look at home:  The Best HairStyles And Makeup Looks From Last Night's 2014 MTV Movie Awards: Mila Kunis, Jordana Brewster #bstat Trends

· Apply a bit of Herbal Essences Moroccan Me a Miracle 7-in-1 Serum on damp hair to protect from heat styling, while also helping to smooth frizz and add moisture and shine.

· Then, create a boost of volume by working about an egg-size amount of Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing Soufflé at the roots to create a fullness that can last all night.

·  Next, create that ‘70s-inspired center part by blowing out hair straight with a round brush.

· Once hair is completely dry and straight, wrap 2-inch sections around a 1.5” curling iron. Expert Tip: Let the curls cool and then brush out hair to create soft, elegant wavesThe Best HairStyles And Makeup Looks From Last Night's 2014 MTV Movie Awards: Mila Kunis, Jordana Brewster #bstat Trends

·  Finish the look with Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer to keep waves in place, but still leave them soft and touchable.

Jordana has beautiful sun-kissed olive skin, so my vision for her was minimal makeup to conceal, highlight, and make her skin glow.” – Kayleen McAdams, ck One Global Makeup Artist

Skin:

The Best HairStyles And Makeup Looks From Last Night's 2014 MTV Movie Awards: Mila Kunis, Jordana Brewster #bstat Trends

After moisturizing Jordana’s skin, I applied ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 sunscreen in tan 500, blending down with a foundation brush and working towards her chin and neck area. Using the tips of my fingers, I gently dabbed ck one skin illuminator in warm 200 on the top of her cheekbones and around her nose area to highlight. To brighten her face and enhance her beautiful skin, I applied ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400 to the apples of her cheeks, which also played up her natural skintones.

Eyes:

On Jordana’s eyes, I decided to use champagne and bronze tones to complement her dress. I blended shimmery cream shades on her top lid with the cream side of the ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400, blending it into the crease. Then, I lined her upper lash line with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Truffle, and then lined the root of her lashes with ck one eyeliner marker in the drama 800.  After the eyeshadow, I gently curled her lashes and applied 2 coats of ck one mascara in black 800 to her top and bottom lashes.

Lips:

To keep the focus on Jordana’s eyes, I left her lips simple by skipping lip liner and using ck one pure color lipstick in undressed, which is a sheer mauve shade.

Being able to enter a makeup artist’s actual studio is a beauty editor’s dream. BeautyStat was invited to check out Sonia Kashuk’s latest Spring 2014 Collection inside her spacious loft studio space in NYC. Everything from new eyeshadow shades to funky ‘70s-inspired bag designs and brushes were on display for all of us bloggers and editors to gawk at.

Review: Sonia Kashuk Spring 2014 Collection: Dewy Luxe Lip & Cheek Balm, Chic Luminosity Glow Powder, Completely Compact Brush
Sonia has released a limited-edition collection of bathroom vanity items, including brush sets, on-the-go Completely Compact Brush and bags in black, white and turquoise shades. The negative flower images are both classic and modern, which look great against a black canvas with pops of one of my favorite colors: turquoise. The sturdy and chic vanity tray and cup will make any bathroom ultra-luxe and expensive-looking.
