Fashion Week is Here!

I am so excited as I am writing this, because I am currently in New York City blogging from the tents in Bryant Park. What does that mean? It is Fashion Week!

While it is very cold and rainy here today, I am still taking it all in. This morning, I got up and ran over to the ribbon cutting ceremony and watched the cast from Lipstick Jungle help cut the ribbon. It was fun to see Brooke Shields Kim Raver, Lindsey Price, and Candace Bushnell. They are all gorgeous gals, so fresh faced and beautiful first thing in the morning. And the shoes! WOW!


I could go on and on and tell you about who I saw and what the fashions are, but we are here to talk makeup and beauty, right? So, stay tuned as I bring you the most beautiful makeup look that was applied to the models at the Jason Wu Fall Collection this afternoon. It was done by MAC, and thanks to MAC, I was backstage and got all the lowdown on the products used and even some tips to apply them.

There is much more going on today, and I cannot wait to share it all. As time permits, I will start uploading pictures and dishing all the juicy details.


Rockin' the Red Lip.

A few celebs were seen wearing the perfect red lip at the SAG Awards on Sunday.

Two fine examples of how to rock the red lip were seen on Christina Applegate and Carla Gugino.

Makeup Looks from the SAG Awards.

Finally, we have an awards show. Aah - to drool over the gowns, the jewels, and the makeup at lats nights SAG Awards. Dresses of the night seemed to be in blue or silver, with some gals opting for brown. The hair - buns, and on the side. This was not my favorite look, and as I watched the red carpet arrivals, I found myself saying, not again. I wonder if a there was some sort of memo sent out saying the hottest look is the side swept bun, because almost everyone was wearing it!  In the end my favorite part is indeed, of course, the makeup looks.

To simply sum up the night, the makeup looks were beautiful with smokey eyes and nude lips, with the occasional red lippie thrown in. I love the smokey eye look with nude lips, and I love to see how the various celebrities do it, so you will hear no complaints from me.

Andrea Bowen's makeup was flawless. I love how the smokey eye extended outward, making it into a bit of a cat eye look, without it being too much or too harsh. I want her lippie!

Debra Messing always rocks the smokey eye and nude lip, and it is very complimentary to her ever so fragile, porcelain complexion.
