Almost every woman I know complains about having to remove their makeup at the end of the night. It is the last thing you want to worry about when you are exhausted from a long day, and just want to crash your head on the pillow. That is why I have always been obsessed with makeup remover wipes. Super easy and effective, they make makeup remover a snap! Here are my favorites.

1)Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes Refill Pack:
Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes are gentle, ultra soft cloths that have been my nighttime staples for years. Years! I buy them in bulk at Costco...so much that now Mike even knows where to pick them up when I am not with them. They gently dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and make-up and it is so effective it easily removes waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin feeling super soft, and is perfect when I am too tired to remove my makeup with my normal cleanser

2) Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes:
These wipes are ridiculously refreshing and use aloe vera to cleanse, remove makeup, and nourish skin...all in one swipe! Not only do these Yes To Cucumbers™ Facial Towelettes provide a spectacularly gentle clean, they are also: Hypoallergenic, Non-Comedogenic, Oil-Free Enriched with natural aloe vera & green tea. They are also made with biodegradable, natural cloth: FSC Fabric.  During the hot months of summer I keep these in the fridge for a mid day sweat removing swipe!

3)Eco-Beauty® Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes:
I count on these wipes for when I have just come home from an event where I have my full makeup face on.  I mean waterproof and long-wearing makeup madness. These lavender-scented cleansing wipes break down and whisk away even the toughest waterproof formulas. With every swipe, eyes and lips get refreshed and nourished with a luscious six-oil blend of olive, jojoba, sesame, grapeseed, vitamin E and lavender. Perfection!

4)Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads:  another necessity when I have on alot of eye makeup and want it off fast! This wipes liquid liner, or any type of heavy duty makeup off in a jiffy, and leaves your eyes moisturized and feeling refreshed.  Great for sensitive eyes, and also comes in an oil free version as well!

5)MAC Wipes: Most makeup artists I know swear by these, and keep them in their makeup kit for on the go cleansing. Oversized, luxurious, super-saturated with special MAC cleanser and infused with protective vitamin E. Extremely refreshing. Totally addictive. Slickly packed, re-sealable, ready to go!

Get The Look: Helen Mirren

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

I adore Helen Mirren.  I want to be as stunningly ferocious when I grow up. To me, she is just so ridiculously cool, calm, sexy, and all around great. I was able to get my hands on her red carpet look for the Hitchcock New York Premiere.   I think she looked stunning, confident, and amazing.  Enjoy! 

SHOP THE LOOK:

Cohl Katz – Makeup:

  • I applied Chanel Lumiere with foundation brush.
  • Bobby Brown concealer palette under eyes
  • Laura Mercier shadow palette mixed with Stila shadows
  • Nars charcoal pencil around eyes and soften with shadow
  • Chanel rose Beige blush on cheeks
  • MAC Soar lip pencil on lips with light gloss

HAIR:  Jonathan  Hanousek – Hair:

“Helen’s Dolce & Gabbana gold embroidered dress was very ornate so I really needed to keep the hair chic, sleek and simple. Keeping the hair off her face kept the look clean and modern”

  • I started with Bumble and Bumble Styling Lotion on damp hair and blew the hair back using a medium round brush to create some volume throughout the top of the head.
  • Next I sprayed TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Conditioner through out the hair to give it a bit of a next day vibe.
  • Then using a flatiron I pressed the hair behind the ears and below her occipital so it would lay flat.
  • Next I took a dime size dollop of Davines Nº5 Mat Pliable Stucco For Wizards and worked it in my hands raking it though the hair to create separation and to anchor the hair behind her ears.
  • To prevent the look from becoming a pompadour, I directed the hair into an irregular side part.
  • Once the shape was in place I secured everything with Kerastase Double Force finishing hairspray.
  • The final look felt fresh and easy and complimented  Helen’s elaborate dress.

Angelina Jolie Vanity Fair Cover

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

It seems lately that everywhere you look there is an article or news segment on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.  Yes, they are having twins, and she is looking healthy and has the pre-baby glow.  But, the newest cover shots of her for Vanity Fair remind me of the fierce Angelina we used to know.  The titan of exotic madness before the nature girl/mommy activist she is now. 

Trust me, I think she has grown into an amazing humanitarian, and turned into a beautiful woman…but part of me still misses her wild and crazy ways! 

So, in honor of the wild and crazy gal in all of us, I will post this amazing pic of her newest cover and tell you to run out and buy MAC VIVA GLAM RED.  Because ladies, we all have alittle madness in us somewhere!
