Getting Glam on New Years Eve! Beauty Tips & Tricks!

No matter whether you are going out for a party-full New Years Eve all dressed up or if you are going casual with friends to a movie or out to dinner, you want to look great. Getting glam doesn’t require a lot of effort but it does require some thought

If you want ideas for hair: hit my post on byu-ti salon in Santa Monica where hair guru Natasha Sunshine gives you TWO different looks and one should take you about 30 mins tops (put your makeup on & get dressed in between start and finish of hair) and the other should take about 10-15 minutes.

Now that hair’s done– or in process– you should start thinking about your body. Skip the pasty white that we have all gotten thanks to the snow and rain on both coasts. We want to gleam, shimmer and shine or at least look golden or bronze.

Fake Bake is a faux tanner that will give you the look of having been to Hawaii for at last week or longer. Here’s what rocks about Fake Bake Contains built-in color guide designed for easy, goof-proof application. It is water-soluble so won’t stain clothing (critical note to that product too). It’s odorless and contains no dyes so you won’t get streaks, dark spots, or turn that ghastly orange.

What it does do is superb:
It reacts with the skin’s natural proteins in the deepest layers of the skin for the most
intense and natural looking tan. It personalized to various skin tones based on your skin type. Meaning your tan won’t be the same as your friend’s tan. Fake Bake produces an extremely long-lasting tan. It has ingredients to dramatically soften your skin as well as contains anti-cellulite ingredients, anti-oxidants, and anti-aging
ingredients such as peptides, all of which have never before been utilized into self-tanning products. Fake Bake is organically-based and PARABEN-FREE!

New from Fake Bake is this instant tanner. Fake Bake Bronze on the Glow is the brand’s first wash-off cosmetic tanning product for your entire body, including the face!

Bronze on the Glow is a gloriously easy way to create an instantly gorgeous, sun-kissed look that will last all day. There are no self-tanning agents in it so once you wash it off your skin will appear as it did before application. Bronze on the Glow works on all complexions and covers irregularities in your skin tone to create a natural-looking, streak-free tan.

Fake Bake’s 360 degree nozzle provides a continuous spray that works at any angle. The fast-drying aerosol is transfer -resistant and will not clog pores. Fake Bake Bronze on the Glow is an organic based, cosmetic tan with subtle shimmer perfect for special occasions, daily use or a quick touch up to your existing Fake Bake tan.

The New Kid on the Block for temporary bronze glow!
Carlene K. Cosmetics SHINE Body Bronzer gives you a sexy, glowy, summer tan that is perfect for your everyday, and even better for a night out on the town. Ditch those tacky tan lines and lose the risk of damaging your skin.

Without the streaky mess or permanence of “fake tanner”, Carlene K’s SHINE Body Bronzer is very moisturizing, long-lasting, and easy to apply and remove– it washes off in the shower! SHINE Body Bronzer was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Carlene K, while working with the singing/dancing /burlesque group “Pussycat Dolls”. You might just love this new product. It’s available in 3 shades:
Golden Goddess (light golden shine)
Bronze Bombshell (medium bronze)
Cocoa Queen (dark bronze)

Don’t want to glow golden or bronze?
There is another alternative. Illamasqua’s Powdered Metal is an interesting product that can be subtle or you can take it to the max. (if you are wearing a metallic dress, don’t go to the max. You have to keep the metallic portion of the makeup to a minimalist thread otherwise.. you might look like the tin man. — personally been there, done that for a photo shoot. It’s exactly the most attractive look but you do look different). Use Powdered Metal to create anything from a subtle sheen to an extreme metallic finish on the face or body. Step into the limelight and demand to be noticed. It’s available in Ether, a shimmering gold, or Thalia, a shimmering golden tan. (I have Thalia. It sparkles like diamonds in light. It is slightly irridescent. It’s smoking haute with NON metallic clothing)

Now you have lots of choices on how you want to look! Tomorrow we have Jeffrey Paul, a celebrity make-up artist to give you the beauty break-down to wear with metallics– specifically those dresses.
So stay tuned boys and girls– it’s only going to get better!!
