Jennifer looks like a sexy old hollywood movie star in this simple and sexy Calvin Klein dress. He hair is absolutely gorgeous, a blonde bombshell. Sexy smokey brown eyes compliments her skin and hair colour and nude lips ads to the sexiness of this look.

Mila once again wowed us on the Red Carpet in this year's Oscars with an on trend lovely lacy lavender Elie Saab gown. Mila was romantic and sexy at the same time. Her hair and jewellery was perfect for the Academy Awards, glamorous and classic old hollywood. Her makeup by Lancome is just natural brown smokey eyes and pretty feminine pink soft lips. 

3. REESE WITHERSPOON Classic Chic
Reese arrived at today's Academy Awards in true classic fashion, black and white is always chic and modern. She rocked the red carpet with her gorgeous full elegant ponytail and emerald green jewels. Her best red carpet accessory was her smile.

Best actress nominee was wearing a royal purple long beaded Rodarte gown with matching gold and purple Tiffany tassel earrings. Her beautiful makeup and hair complimented her gown and showed us how truly beautiful she really is. 


Friends with Benefits



I can't wait to see sexy Mila Kunis and cutie Justin Timberlake in the new romantic comedy Friends with Benefits. I have been a fan of Mila Kunis for years ever since her That 70's Show days and her sexy transition onto the big screen in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Black Swan. This movie looks sexy and funny!

2011 Grammys: Best Dressed

This years Grammy Awards Red Carpet fashion trends were sexy Metallics. Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum, LeAnn Rimes all glowed in Glamorous Gold. Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry spiced up the red carpet in Sexy Sparkling Silvers. Here are my top 4 best dressed ladies! 
Kim Kardashian  glamorous
Kim lit up the Grammy Awards Red Carpet in her stunning Kaufman Franco Gold gown! She was a gorgeous golden goddess in her figure hugging overly sexy revealing shimmery gold dress.  She glamed up her outfit was Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including large gold hoop earrings and a sexy gold snake cuff. Her hair was teased sexy soft curls and gorgeous bronze makeup. Glamorous!!


Jennifer Lopez  hot
JLo was a diamond in the sky as she shimmered and sparkled in a sexy Silver Metallic Gucci mini dress! Her matching mirrored silver clutch and sexy stilettos were the perfect accessories for her hot sexy super short and long sleeved dress. She was sexy and stylish and looked stunning with her gorgeous long golden brown locks. HOT!!  


Katy Perry   sexy angel
Katy was a sexy angel as the flowed down the Red Carpet at this years Grammy's with her Granny and Hubby. She was dressed by Armani in this angelic and sexy whit chiffon flowing dress with gorgeous glowing train. The top of her dress was a mirrored, jewelled bustier which had white feathery angel wings attached at the back. Her makeup was purple shimmery sexy smokey eyes and pink lips. Absolute Perfection! 
Her Grammy performance was the best of the night, see sang Not Like The Movies while being lifted up on a giant pretty swing. This song brought tears to my eyes as they showed images of Katy and Russell's wedding in India in the background of the stage. She then ripped off her skirt and started singing her #1 hit Teenage Dream. "This one goes out to the Valentine Lovers"... Katy rocked out the Grammy stage and the crowd was singing along. She was amazing and her performance showcased how much her album Teenage Dream impacted 2010. 


Miley Cyrus  sexy and sweet


Miley was sexy and sultry in a black, gold and silver sequined tiger print long shimmery gown. Just like Kim and JLo, Miley looked glamorous in sexy long locks. Her hair was braided at the top and pinned back and her bangs gave her face a gorgeous angelic look. Sexy and Sweet!!

Happy Birthday Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer at the Just Got With It Premiere in LA


Friday February 11th ❤ Happy Birthday to the gorgeous and inspiring Jennifer Aniston. She is 42 and Fabulous!! 


Of course we have all been a fan of Jennifer ever since her role as Rachel on the popular 90's sitcom Friends. I was recently watching old re-runs of Friends on 111 Hits channel and it reminded me that Jennifer Aniston was the only reason I watched the show. She is so funny and down to earth and like Sandra Bullock she doesn't let her fame control her or take over her life. The media especially the trashy weekly glossy magazines are always making up stories about Jennifer saying she is unhappy, lonely, jealous of Angelina Jolie, she adopting a baby and dating every guy in hollywood. True fans know what all of this is not true and we all know how amazing and down to earth Jennifer is. 


Jennifer has always been a style icon and someone I have admired for her natural, flawless look with fashion and her ever changing and always amazing hair. 
My favourite Jennifer Aniston movies are Picture Perfect, The Break Up and The Bounty Hunter. 


This week she promoted her new movie with Adam Sandler called Just Go With It on The Ellen Show and The View.

LIME CRIME: Magic Dusts Review + Tutorial


LIME CRIME Magic Dusts 
REVIEW + TUTORIAL


Lime Crime recently sent me 3 of their Vegan Loose Eyeshadows to review on my YouTube Beauty channel. They call these eyeshadows Magic Dust and they certainly are very magical and gorgeous. The reason I love their Magic Dust range is because of the intense vibrant colours. My favourite colour is their vibrant purple named "Empress". I'm really impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows and of course you know how much I adore their fun purple and silver unicorn packaging. 




The 3 colours of Magic Dust Mirror Mirror, Cupcake Thief and Diva. 






Cupcake Thief magic dust
a soft pink with pale pink sparkles, for the princess in you

Cupcake Thief is a gorgeous soft pink that is perfect as a highlight colour under the eyebrow and in the inner corner of the eye to brighten. I really like the pretty pink sheen that this colour offers and the name says it all. 




Mirror Mirror magic dust 
reflective silver eyeshadow with bursts of diamond sparkle

Mirror Mirror is one of the best silver shimmer loose dusts I have found and I adore the diamond shimmery sparkle this colour adds to the eyelids. I especially like using this colour with smokey black eyes and using it in the inner corner of the lower lash line really brightens the eye and adds an added touch of glamour. 





Diva magic dust 
glamorous warm metallic bronze

Diva is a very intense glamorous metallic bronze and the swatches on the LimeCrimeMakeup.com website do not do this colour justice. It's a perfect colour for blondes with blue eyes. I would say this colour has a strong orange base to it and is perfect for creating a soft brown smokey eye. 




Watch my Lime Crime Magic Dust video product review and step by step eye tutorial. I show each eyeshadow colour and also use 4 Magic Dusts to create a pretty multi colour Magical look.

LIME CRIME: Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper Review


LIME CRIME Eyeshadow Helper 
REVIEW 


Lime Crime Makeup recently contacted me. They must have found my many Lime Crime videos and realised I was a Lime Crime Addict. They asked me to review their new Eye Primer; Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper. 

For the last 2 weeks I have been using this eye primer on my eyelids before applying my eyeshadow and Oh my Goodness I'm in L.O.V.E with this Eyeshadow Primer!!





Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper eyelid primer


HOW TO APPLY 
  • Smooth a thin layer over eyelids using a finger tip. 
  • Apply eyeshadow promptly. 
  • Remove eyeshadow with a waterproof eye makeup remover. 


BENEFITS

  • Intensifies color
  • Prevents creasing 
  • Moisture-resistant (sweat resistant)
  • Cute gift box


The product packaging is gorgeous and is packaged in a cute green gift box. This product is one of the best eyeshadow primers I have used. The consistency is thick and gives you water-resistant, sweat-resistant long wearing stay-put eyeshadow. This product was designed to be used with the Lime Crime Magic Dust Vegan Loose Eyeshadows. I also received 3 Magic Dusts from Lime Crime to add to my collection. My Lime Crime Magic Dust review is part 2.

Watch my Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper Review video to see my opinion of this product and a demonstration of how it works.

Super Bowl inspired Makeup of the Day



I had such a great Monday morning watching the Superbowl LIVE on ESPN Australia direct from the states and tweeting about the game on Twitter. Of course I was going for the underdogs the Pittsburgh Steelers and I decided to Celebrate in style... with my makeup that is... wearing Black, Yellow and White eyeshadow. 
Although the Packers were Super Bowl Champions, the Steelers did play amazingly well and I was proud to be cheering them on even if it was just from my lounge room. 


Here are my favourite commercials from the 2011 Superbowl.
