Get The Look: Kiera Knightly or Marie Claire

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

I have always loved Kiera Knightly, and her old world beauty. I especially love her newest look, and was able to get the low down on how to recreate her hairstyle. 

For this month’s Marie Claire cover, Keira Knightly was styled by Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Fashion & Celebrity Stylist Ben Skervin.

THE LOOK: A roughed up, simplistic bed head style with soft, natural looking elements. The face framing layers and fresh look had a rock ‘n’ roll edge that complemented her cool and modern style. Here’s how Ben suggests getting this look:

1.      First start out by prepping wet hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse for lightweight volume.
2.      Rough dry hair, using fingers to give texture and make hair appear less finished.
3.      Part hair on the side. Then take a small amount of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Gloss Crème and scrunch into the ends of the hair, creating soft waves and a textured finish.
4.      Finish the look with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Extra Firm Hold Hairspray to hold the style in place.

Have you loved watching the glitz and glamour of awards shows this season as much as I have? While you’re glued to your tv, have you ever wondered how many products are needed to get your favorite stars red-carpet ready?  Don’t worry — P&G Beauty has done the research for you to bring to life the amount of beauty products used every red awards season.

Approximately 16,750 women will attend at least one of the five top award shows.  Which means there will be more than 100,000 lipstick applications, at least 328 sticks of deodorant used and more than 170 bottles of body wash lathered in order to get your favorite beauties ready for the show! 

I will have my eyes glued to the TV tonight for the Grammy’s, and will be sure to let you know what beauty trends I saw, and loved.  Personally, I can’t wait to see Shirley Bassey and Adele on stage.  Enjoy!

The Perfect Pink Gloss

MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass

 I am always asked the same question, “what is the perfect shade of gloss for me?”.   It seems we are all on a never ending quest to find that fantastically flattering color that will make our lips luster.   I have to admit, I am always on the hunt for the perfect pink.  I have hundreds of lipsticks and glosses that are all within one or two shades darker or lighter than the other.  One has gold flecks, the other iridescent silver, and they all are so very close to that desired peachy pink perfection.  That color that will make my lips look ever so kissable and plump! 

So, what are the two best shades I have found?  They are both soft pink, with a hint of iridescence, and incredibly shiny.  I have used them on everyone, on every shoot imaginable, and they have never failed me.

GHD Gold Professional 1/2″ Styler

I have complained and whined in many a blog about the ongoing battle I have with my hair.  Although I adore being a natural redhead, I loathe the fact that I have the biggest head of hair this side of Texas!  It’s big.  Pageant queen big.  And it takes an army of hair tools to get it to flatten, smooth, and be de-poofed!

Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes Refill Pack

You should never go to bed with your makeup on (or go to bed angry, but that’s another story).  I usually follow this advice and cleanse my face with a makeup remover, eye makeup remover, and skin cleanser.  Phew!  Now, you can understand why this task can seem daunting after a long day at work.  Sometimes all I want to do when I get home is crawl into bed, let alone take the time to remove a day’s worth of foundation and mascara.  But, being the skin care loving, beauty junkie that I am I make a point to get my face clean any way I can.

Bio Oil Scar Treatment

Bio-Oil Bio Oil Specialist Skin Care

I love food.  Pasta, chocolate, and anything considered comfort food. Because of my adoration of all things carbs I sometimes have a battle of the bulge.  And, since my skin no longer has the bounce back qualities of my youth, I have stretch marks.  Yuck, gross…and completely unavoidable over the age of 30. 

The great news is that I found a phenomenal (yes, it’s that good!!) new product.  This is not only the best stretch mark product i have found, but it is also an amazing product that helps dehydration.  This breakthrough is called Bio Oil Scar Treatment, and it should be a staple in your bathroom.
