my testimony: The brush is amazing; it’s very soft since it is made out of goat hair. Because of the shape and size of the brush it contours and it’s into areas that most other foundation brush wouldn’t. You can also use it to blend under the eye after you apply concealers. The brush is a perfect size for foundation, contouring and blending. Best investment, since they last forever…
Exclusively designed to apply foundation evenly with high coverage effect. Ultrafine uncut goat hair tips create a smooth application with a professional finish.
You can purchase this at Nordstrom or Shu Uemura for $39.00
I love this product! I always use it after I put on my make up; it sets my make up without giving me the cakey look. More natural …

philosophy's 'purity made simple' was created because it was philosophy's feeling that most cleansers were not getting the skin clean enough. Furthermore, they believe that you do not need a makeup remover and a toner to complete the cleansing process. Most cleansers are formulated to foam, push around, and hopefully rinse away dirt and makeup. 'purity made simple' was formulated to actually emulsify and dissolve dirt, embedded debris and makeup rather than creating a lot of foam without a lot of clean.
You need this product if: You've tried a lot of cleansers but never found one you loved. You crave deeply cleansed skin. You want a cleanser that will multi-task for you (eye makeup remover, cleanser, toner). You wear a lot of makeup. Your skin is congested.
You can purchase it at Nordstrom or Philosophy 8 oz $20.00 or 16 oz $32.00.
Who doesn’t love a smokey eye? It’s a look that works on just about everyone, but what if you want to detour from the usual browns and neutral colors and add a pop of color to your fall makeup regime… Switch up your chocolate browns with deep greens, plums, and blues. Black liner and lots of black mascara will really give any pop of color a dramatic edge. People often ask me “I love my these shades of eye shadow but what lip should I pair it with?” So instead of explaining, I decided to demonstrate on my friend Aarin. She was convinced that green wouldn’t work for her but was thrilled about how amazing this vibrant green looked on her eyes. I wanted to show a variation of how you can change your vibe just by changing up your lip color. I decided to play with 3 completely different lip shades; a very pale pink, a vibrant raspberry red, and a deep black orchid. You can see how changing only the lip gave Aarin’s face 3 completely different looks. I will use more colors in the weeks to come, but for now, introduce yourself to a beautiful deep green. What lip is your favorite??
Get the Look:
1. First, prepare the skin with a light moisturizer.
2. Blend a touch of concealer under eyes and in any areas you need more coverage.
TIP: Use the tip of your ring finger to blend under the eye, its your weakest finger and is the most gentle.
3. Apply liquid foundation w/ a foundation brush. Blend well onto the face and neck.
4. Set with a dusting of loose powder.
5. Dust a soft powder cheek color to the high apples of the cheek.
1. Groom and define brows with powder shadow and set with a brow gel.
2. Apply bright green eye shadow starting at the upper lids blending up to the crease and around the outer edges. Blend under the lower lashes as well.
3. Line the entire eye with black eye pencil.
4. Curl lashes with an eyelash curler and coat with black mascara.
1. Apply liner and gloss.
Tips for lips- for these lip options, I opted to not use lipstick and stick with lip glosses and pencils only. Whenever you are using bright colors, a neutral pale mouth is always a safe bet, but for the brave at heart, try bright bold color on your lips with your bright eye.
Also, try these lip colors to see what works for you: peach, red, deep wine, hot pink, orange, and pale pink.
Looking forward to hearing what you paired with your green eye!

Put it in a high ponytail, says Frédéric Fekkai stylist Renato Campora. Everyone from Diane Kruger to Jennifer Lopez has hit up the red carpet in that unconventional glam hairstyle. Just this past weekend, Style's very own Kimora Lee Simmons got in on the trend at Teen Vogue's Fashion University event.
"A high ponytail braid is great for a party or an evening out," he says. "It is glamorous and easy to achieve at home. When the ponytail for the braid is high and tight, it helps to open up the face and give lift to the eyes while showing off the neck."
You can even adapt this look for daytime. "A lower, loser braid is easy to wear and a great way to keep your hair back, but still styled," Campora says.
You're going to need some serious hold to achieve your braid—and make sure it lasts through your office meetings or club-hopping. Campora suggests starting out with a mousse, such as Fekkai's Strong Hold Volume Mousse. Follow with a Fekkai gel after blow-drying, and then tease the hair to create serious volume. Only then do you create a ponytail and braid away, using a very light finishing crème to control flyaways as necessary.
And that's it—a classic braid, with a twist.
Denim leggings are one of the hottest trends in denim right now. 7 for all man kind has jumped on this trend with the Coco leggings. They look like a jean, but they're made from a soft, gummy denim so they're super comfortable like a legging. I love using them on my clients. Kim, Khloe and Catt all have a pair and they love to wear them. They're not available until Spring 2010 so until then we'll all just have to add them to our wish list.
The cool part about these leggings is that my assistant Madison's husband, Cory Guest designed them. She was wearing the sample for so long and I was jealous because I wanted a pair for the girls and I had to wait!
Kim is wearing:
black motorcycle denim leggings by 7 for all mankind, necklace is by Nugaard Designs, jacket by Antonio Berardi, black top by Elizabeth and James, a large Elschia tote by Givenchy and her booties are by Pierre Hardy.
To thoroughly cleanse your brushes, use The Makeup Brush Cleanser by Clinique. It will help your brushes last longer too.
