Even though winter is upon us, we should not forget that the sun is still hammering its rays down upon our skin. Skin care protection needs to be year round routine. I am particularly sensitive of this subject right now, as someone whom I cherish is currently battling with Melanoma. And since getting him to wear sunscreen is an arduous task, I searched around for the simplest approach to sunscreen, so he would no longer be able to complain about the sloppy creams, or that "he forgot" to apply the product (jeesh!). I needed to find something that even a man would remember to apply, whether it was on the go, or during his morning routine.
About three weeks ago I was able to interview celebrity makeup artist, and Emmy Award winner Melanie Mills. I also was able to try out her line of body and face creams called GLEAM. Needless to say I flipped over the product, and instantly fell in love with Melanie. Her enthusiasm for makeup was infectious, and based on my experience with GLEAM, she transfers that same enthusiasm and passion into her brand.
Melanie is best known for her work on Dancing with the Stars, where she was the Department Makeup Head for five years, and helped to create the iconic body "glow" that turned the dancers and their celebrity partners into bronze gods and goddesses.
One of the highlights of this years AMA's for me was Katy Perry winning her honorary award. I adore her idividuality, and husky voice. I know there are some people who might not like her Poppy songs, but if you ever doubt her talent as a singer, than listen to her rendition of Sam Sparro's Black and Gold here. And come on folks, I dare any one of you to not bop your head when you hear Teenage Dream!!
Once again Taylor Swift was the big winner last night at the American Music Awards. I can't help it…I ADORE her! I have been singing "Mean" for the past month, and absolutely love her modesty, and kindness. I am a fan, what can I say!
Last night, she looked elegant as always, and complimented her glittery dress with subdued makeup. Here is how to get the look (you can bet I will be recreating this on myself immediately!).
Leave it to Kevin James Bennett to put together the best makeup look for Bella. Seriously, this knocks any other look book or Twilight tip out of the water. Not only are his color and product selections spot on, but he takes the time to detail every single application process. Brilliant. If only we all could have Mr.Bennett do our wedding makeup (*hint* mumble…*hint*)
So, all my fellow Bellas…..be beautiful. xoxo
