TRENDING: Runway Beauty

I have been continuously bringing you my favorite looks of the day this week as Fashion Week has come in to full swing.  The beauty teams behind the scenes this year have really brought their A- game and absolutely killed the hair and makeup looks showcased on those long beings we call models.  Though I am known for giving MY opinion on all things beauty, I also wanted to share with you what has actually been trending on the runways.  I will continue to bring my look of the day, but keep checking back this week for the top trending beauty trends...straight from the runways....to my eyes....to your screens beautynistas.  

First up, BOLD EYELINER!!  This is something that has continuously come in and out over the years.  It is also something that doesn't tend to look amazing on everyone depending on eye shape.  But it was definitely seen all over Lincon Center this season.  Makeup artists were heavily lining the girl's eyes, top and bottom, outside and inside rims.  Check out a few images I grabbed below.... The top image was seen at the Dennis Basso show, where makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used AVON super shock gel liner to create this look.  The bottom image comes from the Nicholas K. show.  Makeup artist Lauren Anderson also used AVON super shock gel liner to achieve this more bold  version of the look.  It seems to me as if AVON may be trending on the runways too this season :)  What do you think??  Are you a bold eye liner lady??  Stay tuned for more trends coming soon!!

Straight From the Runways: Altuzarra Hair How To


I absolutely LOVED the hair on the runaways at Altuzarra.  It was simple yet romantic, sleek yet edgy and simply utterly stunning.   The hairstylist for the show, Odile Gilbert nailed this chic do.  Here is a quick how to!






1. Pull hair straight back in to a center low pony tail
2. Wrap a piece of hair around the pony tail to hide the hair tie.
3. Wrap a fish net around the pony tail securing it all in to a chignon.
4. Pin each corner of the net up beside the ponytail.  

The net was a genius move and will help to keep all hair secured and will avoid pieces from falling out.  

What do you think of this cool style??

EM-Sanity: The Best Beauty of the Emmy's

Back to back awards show's this week with the MTV Video Music awards stacking right up to the Emmy's.  Some stars came to one, some stars came to the other and some were at both, but all showed up looking their best... or so they tried.  Forget the beauty misses on the carpet, I am sure you all have your own opinions, let's talk about the fun stuff...I am bringing you my favorite beauty looks of the evening last night at prime time's biggest night of the year, The Emmy's.  Check them out below and comment in the comment well all your thoughts on who YOU loved!


Camila Alves
Camila is just one of those women who you look at in just complete astonishment of her natural beauty.  It is definitely not hard to enhance all the gorgeousness that she has going on, but you can't take it away from her glam squad, she looks absolutely fabulous.  Her center parted dark hair was worn behind her shoulders which really allowed her face and features to do the talking.  She had a subtle bronzed smoked out eye with a nude lip and her cheek bones were perfectly contoured.  She really nailed it last night!  (side note: THAT DRESS???  Love!)

Debra Messing
It is so nice to be seeing more and more of Debra on the carpet these days.  I love her natural curls, but this old hollywood side parted wave was perfectly executed.  I love that she has the one side completely pulled back from her shoulder allowing the bulk of the curls to lay softly to the other side.  Her makeup was also flawless with a heavy lined eye and a glow that goes perfectly with her red locks.  Well done Debra!

Heidi Klum
I literally can not say enough positive things about this look.  She is absolutely show stopping stunning!!  She has the perfect summer blonde that we are all going to be nostalgic for here soon when fall comes upon us.  It is perfectly and effortlessly waved to frame her face and her makeup is that "there but not there" look that allows her to show off her sun kissed skin.  The coral dress matches her hair color and skin so perfectly that I can not even deal with it......OH and she twerked on the red carpet, get it Heidi!

Julia Roberts
Julia is someone that we do not often see on the Emmy red carpet, we are more used to seeing her at the Oscars.  But she showed up and did not disappoint!  I love her blonde hair and subtle wave.  Her makeup is clean and beautiful and not to mention that amazing dress!!  Always smiling, this one.

Kelly Osbourne
This Fashion Police star was in the building!  And looking as purple and stunning as ever.  I could not get over her edgy, rolled, up do.  We are seeing the shaved head more and more and I think Kelly does it brilliantly.  It suited her makeup perfectly with her peachy pink cheeks and she looked gorgeous.

Kristen Wiig
Kristen Wiig has always been beautiful but I think she turned more heads than usual last night.  Her plunging neckline and white dress complimented her glowing bronzed out makeup application and  her "just left the beach" waves.  Her hair length is perfect for her face shape and the color perfectly suits her skin tone.  You look great girl!

Sarah Hyland
This Modern Family star looked beautiful walking the carpet.  Her top bun was awesome, and not too perfect and sleeked which is my favorite part.  Her brows frame her face very well and her eyes are truly popping.  This was the perfect look for her age and I loved seeing her shine.

Taylor Schilling
Nude is the new black???  Because this lady looks amazing in this nude dress, nude makeup and light blonde hair.  Her eyes are a hinge darker drawing attention to them and her hair is the perfect amount of messy and side swept.  She looked amazing last night and owned the carpet beautifully.

Makeup Monday: The VMA's


As we all know last night The Beyonce Show, I mean the VMA's aired with stars walking the red carpet in what is widely known to be the more edgier awards show of them all.  Alas, they were pretty tame this year with Taylor Swift singing about her own life again, (#stillloveher), Niki Minaj taking over Miley's twerking roll, Usher sporting his usual amazing dance moves and a few other fun moments of the night.  Though most of us were tuning in to see Beyonce, who was strategically last to perform putting on a show that lasted a full 15 minutes, I was also tuning in for the beauty.  In honor of Makeup Monday, check out my favorite makeup looks of the red carpet last night.


Gwen Stefani
There has been some controversy over whether people loved or hated this look, and I am here to tell you ..I love it.  Its nice in general to see Gwen on the red carpet again and looking fabulous at that.  She went against the rules and rocked a super smoky eye, super bold lash and hot pink lip and looked amazing doing it.  It's a hard thing to pull off and she did it wonderfully.  
Kendall Jenner
Watch out Kim, Kendall is by far the break out Kardashian sister of the year.  She is definitely one to look out for with her modeling career sky rocketing currently.  And she brought it once again last night on the carpet.  She has a subtle smoky eye paired with a pale nude lip.  Kendall is so young and can sometimes tend to be highlighted and contoured as much as her older sisters when she really doesn't need it.  I was happy to see her wear more of a sheer foundation face with this look, less is more.  

Beyonce
I mean duh, she always looks fabulous and she always seems to absolutely nail the more natural nude face look that I think we all strive for.  She gets it right so often that I considered not putting her on the list, but when students get all A's every time you still put them on the honor roll right??  Beyonce strikes again!





Double Take: Jessica Alba Huff Post Live Best Beauty

This week over at the Huff Post Live studios I gave Caitlyn Becker the same hair do as our best beauty winner of the week,  Jessica Alba.  Check out the how to do it at home tips below!

1) Spritz a texture spray on to DRY hair.
2) Blow dry lightly with cool setting to let the spray dry in to the hair and give you that perfect texture you are looking for
3) Section the hair in to one to 2 inch sections
4) Use a 1 and 1/2 inch wand iron and wrap one to two inch sections in opposite directions all around the head leaving OUT the ends.  (leaving out the ends will give it that messier look at the bottom)
5) Run your fingers through it all and shake it out.
6) Spray on a light texturizing finishing hair spray to help your look last all day!!!

Check out Caitlyn's double take below!
