MAC Master Class: The Most Fun I've Ever Had Putting On Makeup

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a MAC Master Class at Bloomingdale’s in the Willow Grove Mall. In this interactive seminar, participants were taught how to replicate on-trend looks, using the products and techniques employed my MAC pro artists.

After 30+ beauty-obsessed ladies (and one hilarious dude) took our seats at work stations - which were equipped with mirrors, a set of brushes and a plethora of products - MAC pro artists Will and Jocelyn introduced themselves and we got down to biznass.

Will announced that he would be demonstrating the “club zone” look, complete with a peacock blue eye and Bordeaux gloss. Then Jocelyn informed us that she would be leading the “bridal/wedding” look tutorial. Will and Jocelyn explained that we should pick a preferred look - as they would be walking us through the steps, and demonstrating techniques on models. Since I had plans to meet Mr. Spoiled Pretty for a casual dinner later that evening (and I didn't want to look like a tranny hooker at my neighborhood brasserie), I chose to follow Jocelyn’s lead.

During the two hour tutorial, a handful of MAC makeup artists walked around, assisting participants and helping us choose the most flattering makeup shades. One of the artists, Dana, was especially helpful and introduced me to some of my new MAC faves.

The Master Class only cost $50, which you end up getting back (in the form of a MAC gift card) at the end of the seminar. So basically, the class ends up being free...and you go home with a whole bunch of new goodies to help hone your mad makeup skills. Next time MAC organizes a Master Class is my neck of the woods, I'll be there. Perhaps I'll see you there too?

Here’s the abridged breakdown of the bridal look:

1) Spritz face with Fix +
2) Moisturize skin with Studio Moisture Fix.
3) Prep the skin with Prep + Prime Skin.
4) Fill in brows with Eye Shadow, using the 266 Small Angle Brush
5) Apply Paint Pot in Bare Study to eyelid, from lash line to brow bone, using the 242 Shader Brush.
6) Using the same brush, apply Eye Shadow in Shroom to entire lid.
7) Apply Eye Shadow in Cork to the crease, using the 217 Blending Brush**; start at the outer corner and work the product inward, moving the brush in small circles to deposit color.
8) Using the same brush, apply Eye Shadow in Embark to the crease; start at the outer corner and work the product inward, moving the brush in small circles to deposit color - but stop at the middle of the lid, so that the color is concentrated on the outer half of the eye.
9) With the 266 Small Angle Brush, apply Embark Eye Shadow to lower lash line.
10) Use the same brush to line the upper lash line with Fluidline in Blacktrack*.
11) Apply Select Moisturecover concealer to nose, under eyes and above brows - and blend into skin using the 190 Foundation Brush.
12) Mix small amount of Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation* with a few drops of Stobe Liquid* (for a dewy finish) and apply to parts of the face where you did not use concealer (forehead, cheeks, chin and jawline) using the 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush*.
13) Using the same brush, set fondation with Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation/Loose.
14) Choose a Powder Blush shade that is similar to your own complexion; I used Harmony. Use the 129 Powder/Blush Brush to contour under the cheekbones. To avoid a line that looks too harsh, imagine a line that runs from the middle of your ear to the corner of your mouth...then apply the blush half-way, from the ear to the middle of the cheek.
15) Using the same brush, apply Powder Blush (in a shade that gives a subtle pop of color) to the apples of cheeks; I used Cubic.
16) Apply Prep + Prime Lip to your lips.
17) Line lips in Spice Lip Pencil.
18) Apply Viva Glam V Lipstick, then top it off with Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks*.
19) Coat upper lashes in Dazzle Lash Mascara.
20) Choose a pair of false lashes* and measure them against your eyes. If they are too long, cut to desired length. Apply Duo Adhesive* and allow glue to get a little tacky before positioning lashes as close as you possibly can to natural lash line.

* must-haves for your makeup toolkit!
** if you're on a tight beauty budget, just buy the 217 Blender Brush (a very wise investment).

Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester Goes Blonde

Did you know that Leighton Meester was a blonde before auditioning for Gossip Girl? She dyed her hair before scoring the career-launching role of Blair Waldorf, Queen Bee of NYC’s Upper East Side. “That's a big deal but I'm glad I did”, Leighton once said.

But, from the looks of these recent pics, Leighton has gone back to her roots.

So how do we like our beloved Blair as a blonde?

Soap & Glory Spa Sugar Crush Body Scrub

My friends at College Candy just tipped me off to a product I'll find a way to justify blowing some of my rent money on - Soap & Glory Spa Sugar Crush Body Scrub.

Out of all the scrubs we’ve tried, this one definitely takes the cake. It smells absolutely divine — so sweet, yet somehow not cloying. And our skin is left feeling so silky smooth without even a hint of dryness or ashy-ness. What could be better?

Check out the other beauty must-haves they've become completely enamored with in recent weeks.

Don't Hate. Appreciate. Oprah's Hair is 100% Hers!

Ever since Oprah started styling her hair in a sleek blowout, people have been wondering if her mane was unbeweavable.

Well, the big O set the record straight on Friday's eppy of her talk show:

"Am I wearing a weave? Everybody’s like, 'Oprah, we love your weave.' This is not a weave, this is my hair." And to prove that she speaks the truf, Oprah shared this photo of her mane in all of it's natual glory. "This is what my hair looks like. This is me before it gets pressed and curled in the morning," she continued.

Gail's response? "Yowza!"

Recessionista's Fabuless Pick of the Week: Aquaphor

For the past week, I have been suffering with the WORST COLD EVER. At the apex of my illness, I was going through a box of tissues per day - and my poor nose was paying the ultimate price. Last Thursday, the skin around my nostrils was cracking and bleeding so badly that it was an exercise in agony every time I blew my nose. My schnoz was this close to Michael Jackson territory; I was just waiting for it to fall off altogether.

But then, a package arrived in the mail and I was introduced to my new BFF, Aquaphor. This miracle salve nursed my nose back to health. I told my cold, "You wanna be startin' somethin'? Bring it...I've got Aquaphor!"

I don't know what took me so long to get acquainted with Aquaphor. But I'll tell you this: I'll never be without it.

My Favorite Skin Care Products EVER: Amala

It's really difficult to admit this, but I used to be very dismissive of natural and organic beauty products - particularly skin care. I used to believe that I needed to patronize products with harsh chemicals to get my problem skin to act like it had some sense. In fact, I would often joke that I didn't care what damage a product did to my insides, as long as my outsides were looking good.

But I've done a complete 180 since discovering Amala, a luxurious collection of skin care and body care products with 100% natural formulas.

Earlier this month, I began testing Amala's new Purify line - for Earth Day editorial consideration. Purify is a collection of products formulated for oily and acnegenic skin types. The products help control excess oil and shine, clear clogged pores, and prevent and heal blemishes and blackheads with treatments inspired by the healing plants and flowers of Eastern Asia.

So for three weeks, I've been religiously using the Purifying Gel Cleanser, Purifying Face Polish, Purifying Toner, and Purifying Moisturizer. And I have to say that besides feeling like I'm indulging in an extravagant spa treatment every time I use these citrus-scented products, my skin hasn't looked this good in years.

My acne is now very mild, if not practically nonexistent. And my skin is so radiant that many of my friends have remarked about the drastic improvement in my complexion.

While Amala's Purify price tag isn't exactly recessionista-friendly (products range from $30 to $136), these products are, in my expert opinion, an absolute steal for the results you'll see.

I am so enamored with the Purify line that I want to tell every person I meet about this brand. I would gladly be the company's spokesperson and do commercials - because I feel so strongly about how the treatments have transformed my skin. Hell, I'd do it for exchange for a lifetime supply of this stuff.

Amala is available at Barneys New York and

Bacon Flavored Lip Balm

My girl Beth tipped me off to the looniest lip balm I've seen in probably forever - J&D's Bacon Flavored Lip Balm. For just $3.99, you can moisturize you lips and make yourself taste like bacon!

"A great stocking stuffer, J&D's Bacon Flavored Lip Balm will keep your lips from chapping while constantly reminding you why bacon is the king of meats."

Buy a 12-pack of the lip balm for $24.99, and give the "gift of bacon flavored kisses" to "friends, lovers or anything in between."

The product has skyrocketed to fame, since being featured on last Friday's episode of Oprah. Pretty ironic, considering the Swine Flu going around. No?

Who's Afraid of the Big, Bold Lip?

Who's afraid of the big, bold lip? Surely not Alexis Bledel. Just look at how she fabulously flaunts an orange-red kisser.

Let this be a lesson to all of you who fear the saucier shades on the color spectrum. Minimal eye makeup and a bright lip color make her unearthly baby blues pop. Alexis sported a similar look at the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere last year, when she opted for a vibrant, blue-pink lipstick.

What if one eyeshadow compact could provide every shade necessary to fashion the perfect neutral look, eye-defining liner, or sexy smoky effect? This seemingly impossible pursuit is now a reachable reality with the new NARS Modern Love Palette. Open the signature soft-touch black compact, complete with an oversize mirror, to reveal an array of uber-wearable shades that look natural on every skin tone.

If You Could Fall In Love With A Pair Of Shoes...

I'd never heard of Guillaume Hinfray until five minutes ago, when I received an email announcing that he would be selling his wares on But once I spied these leather peep toe sling backs with a stacked wooden heel, homeboy Hinfray earned a permanent spot on my radar.

If You Are What You Eat...

If you are what you eat, then I guess you can call me Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss. Instead of irritants or stimulants which cause lips to temporarily swell, this gloss relies on gentle but effective marine collagen to pump-up pouts for lasting results. Available in six shimmery shades (if you buy one, make it Freedom - a sheer golden rose), Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss has a dulce de leche flavor that’s lip smacking delicious!

Every time I put it on, I get the urge to just lick it all off. And when I do (which is quite often), I don’t have to worry about what I‘m ingesting - because the gloss is formulated with organic and natural ingredients (including Josie's signature ingredient, 100% pure organic Argan oil) and doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, or phthalates.

Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss is available at select Sephora stores, and

OPI Colorcopia: Your Old Faves Are Back For A Limited Time

Today, I met up with my Mom and she was sporting the most gorgeous magenta mani. When I asked the color, she said, “It’s OPI Kinky in Helsinki. I think it’s new.”

The name was vaguely familiar, but I knew that the shade hadn’t been new for at least a couple of years. So I did some research and found that my mom, while misinformed, was on the right track.

OPI’s new Colorcopia collection is a limited edition collection celebrating over 20 years of OPI favorites. Best sellers from the last 20 years of OPI nail lacquer are back to celebrate OPI's 20th anniversary.

The Colorcopia lineup includes:

Berry Berry Broadway (New York City Collection, 2000)
A brilliant berry, bright as the Broadway lights.

Cancun Fiesta (OPI Nail Lacquer Launch, 1989)
Rich warm pink worth celebrating!

Copper Mountain Copper (Winter Resort Collection, 1995)
Take a "peak" at this coppery-wine shade.

D.C. Cherry Blossom (9091 Collection, 1990)
A vivid cherry-pink that's politically correct.

Florentine Fuchsia (International Collection, 1991)
Pink-red with the accent on beautiful.

French Bordeaux (International Collection, 1991)
A rich, full-bodied red.

Kinky in Helsinki (European Collection, 2002)
A wild magenta that warms even the coldest nights.

Mediterranean Moonlight (Mediterranean Collection, 1994)
A light shade of gleaming caramel.

Purple-opolis (Greek Isles Collection, 2004)
The Parthenon of all purples- a vibrant violet.

Sahara Sapphire (Painted Desert Collection, 1998)
A radiant violet-blue, chilled by the desert night.

Shootout at the O.K. Coral (American Collection, 1995)
A pink-peach that's way more than okay!

Venus di Violet (Collezione Italiana, 2001)
A delicate, opalescent violet that's a true work of art.

Kim Kardashian's New "Blonde" Hair

Today, Kim Kardashian unveiled a new hair color via Twitter. Though Kim referred to her new shade as "blonde," it's obvious from the Twitpics that her hair is actually a caramel-y light brown.

I love me some Kim, but I can't get behind this hair. Her dark mane was so glossy and lush. If genetics had blessed me with that hair, I'd never do a damn thing to it. I'd just shake what my momma gave me.

What do you think about Kim's new do?

Roberto Cavalli moves fast. Born into an artistic family, Cavalli headed straight for the Art Institute, where he trained in textile print. Before graduation, the fledgling designer had produced a series of floral prints on knit fabric that caught the eye of several prominent Italian hosiery labels. By the early 1960s, he had founded his own design house in Florence and was turning out unabashedly glamorous ready-to-wear for spirited, independent women. It wasn’t long before his intrinsic love of excess and appreciation of nature became trademarks of the collection.

Mr. Spoiled Pretty's Review of Clinique Face Scrub For Men

A few weeks ago, Mr. Spoiled Pretty told me he was in the market for a new face scrub. So I told him that I’d do some research and get him anew scrub to try, with one small condition…he had to pinky swear that he would provide a product review for Spoiled Pretty. But after a few feeble attempts to get him to write a formal review - to which he gave me one word answers or sentence fragments - I just sat him down for an interview.

So without further ado, here is a Q&A with Mr. Spoiled Pretty about his experience with Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Face Scrub.

DB: How do you use Clinique’s face scrub?
MSP: You put it on your face.

DB: No, I mean do you use it in the shower or at the sink?
MSP: In the shower. I don’t do anything at the sink except brush my teeth, wash my hands, or shave.

DB: Okay. So how do you apply it?
MSP: You smear it on your face and rub it in?

DB: You mean, like, massage it into your skin in a circular motion?
MSP: Yeah.

DB: Okay, so what does it feel like?
MSP: Like 160 grit sand paper, which is a good thing. I feels really, really good. It scraped off my face and made me feel like a new man.

DB: How would you compare it to other face scrubs that you’ve used in the past?
MSP: I used to use the Nivea face scrub and that was pretty good. But it’s not as high-quality as the Clinique face scrub. With the Clinique stuff you can tell that it’s actually doing something to your face.

DB: Is that it?
MSP: The only thing bad about it is that you can’t use it every day because it would hurt too much. It might scrape your face clean off.

DB: But you’re not supposed to use it every day, Graham. With a serious face scrub like that, you should probably only use it a couple of times a week, max.
MSP: Says who?

DB: Says me. I’m a beauty expert, remember?

Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Face Scrub is available at Macy's, Nordstrom, Sephora, Clinique counters and

What To Use When Your Hair Is Tore Up, From The Split Ends Up

The label for PhytoSpecific’s Vital Force Shampoo and Conditioner indicates that the products are meant for “Curly, Frizzy, or Relaxed Hair.” To be more accurate, the packaging should say: “If your hair is tore up, from the split ends up, open up your wallet.”

The shampoo and conditioner don’t smell very good; the smell isn’t awful, but it’s definitely not something that’s going to engender deep breathing or orgasmic outbursts - like in the old skool Herbal Essences commercials. But the fragrance is a non-issue for me, because the products work so fabulously.

The Vital Force Shampoo hydrates and deeply nourishes very dry, damaged, and brittle hair. Since I started using it, I’ve noticed that my hair feels more moisturized and less brittle - and my hair breakage has decreased significantly.

The Vital Force Crème Bath is a conditioner with high concentrations of shea butter, jojoba oil and sesame oil - which penetrate the hair’s cuticle to deposit vitamins and nutrients that tore up hair is craving. The conditioner’s gummy texture is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced…I’ve been using it for a month, and I still marvel every time I get in the shower. But once you rub it between your hands, it transforms into a creamy consistency that glides through hair.

Usually when I apply conditioner, I’m too lazy to comb it through; but the Vital Force Crème Bath is so amazing that I make sure to always work it through with a wide-tooth comb - to ensure that no strand misses out on its gummy goodness.

PhytoSpecific Vital Force Shampoo and Crème Bath conditioner are available at Sephora and
