BeautyHot new Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Campaign!

I am positively in love with these photos of Scarlett Johansson from the new Dolce & Gabbana makeup campaign.

With retro-inspired glamour that hearkens back to Marilyn Monroe, the ad wished to capture both the seductiveness and vulnerability of a woman putting on her makeup.
 
 
 
I think Scarlett pulls off the look brilliantly! What about you?

BeautyA Few of My Favorite Things…

I thought I would share with you guys my favorite new buys for each week. Most of them are beauty products and face washes (since that’s what I’m addicted to), but anything that strikes my fancy is up for game. I’ll let you know why I love each item and have added it to my routine. (P.S. I bought all these items with my own money and was not paid for my opinion)

First up – Purity Made Simple, One-Step Facial Cleanser.

There’s nothing worse than finding leftover foundation hanging out on your freshly washed face. This cleanser takes care of that, leaving you with pure, supple skin. My skin is very dry, and this does leave a slight “tightness,” but as long as you follow up with moisturizer it shouldn’t be a problem.

Number 2 – Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Non-Dairy Dessert

My sweet tooth seems to go crazy when the weather warms up, and Coconut Bliss really hits the spot. I love that they use Agave sweetener which is gentler on your system. Plus, the coconut milk adds an unbelievable richness.

Number 3 – Maybelline Great Lash, Clear Lash and Brow Gel,

I can’t believe how long I’ve gone without this product in life! Keeping unruly brows in place is no longer an issue. I also love using this gel after regular mascara. It helps separate the lashes and add a little gloss.

Number 4 – DERMAdoctor KP Duty Body Scrub

I bought this scrub last summer and am getting it again! For those annoying dry skin bumps of the winter, this scrub kicks major butt. This is also great for creating a smooth canvas the day before a self tan.  

Share with me one of your favorite things!!

BeautyPink Pout for Spring!

Spring has finally arrived, and it’s time to break out those pretty pastels and lovely pinks when it comes to lip color.

 Nyla, our Lulu*s makeup artist, updated yesterday’s shoot with some great new lip products, and our ladies looked absolutely lovely.

To get the look below, start off with “Trimmed in Pink” Lip Pencil by Mac, followed by Mac’s “Please Me” Matte Lipstick. Then, glaze your lips with Lip Fusion Gloss in “Blush” for a dazzling finish.

MusicGet Through Your Day With: DAYDREAMING by Kid Sister!!

Kid Sister is a fashionable diva whose song Daydreaming is perfect for killing thoose mid-week blues!

I enjoyed watching her adorable self in this adorable video this morning, and it’s already made my “I wish it was Friday” blues go away. I love her bright clothes, her long colored nails, and her super soft pink makeup in this video.

I recommend watching and going for a stroll downtown to get a treat on your lunch break or after work while listening to this song on your iPod!

 FYI check out RCRD LBL for free downloads and updates on the HOTTEST new music!

BeautyWhat’s Your Beauty Routine?

It ain’t the prom, sweetheart,” you hear your man say as he patiently waits downstairs. Meanwhile, you are frantically preparing for your date. The black heels or the red? A quick spritz of perfume and .. oh no, your hair has gone flat!

I’ve never considered myself a beauty queen, but I’m no roll-out-of bed and head out the door kinda gal either. I usually look put together. That’s just my nature. I’ll make sure I have enough time in the morning to “put my face on,” as my grandmother would say.


The length of time it takes for women to get ready varies greatly. It depends on the girl and also where she is going. Usually, I’m not getting ready for prom (go figure), but I do take the time to go through a good skin care regimen. I consider that to be very important and feel gross if I don’t have time to properly cleanse and moisturize.

That done, I don’t have much time to style my hair or mess with eyeshadow, but mascara and red lipstick is a must!

Now it’s time for you Lulu*s ladies to dish. What’s the most important aspect of your beauty routine? How long do you take to freshen up before you head out the door? Any time saving tips?
