REVLON X GWEN

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

 

     While wishing fans a Happy New Year in a behind-the-scenes video clip, Revlon announced its newest brand Global Ambassador, Gwen Stefani!  The superstar singer joins beauties Emma Stone, Ciara, Halle Berry, and Olivia Wilde, who serve in similar roles for the brand.  However, the Revlon X Gwen association just may be the perfect match for the brand; after all, Stefani began her career as a makeup artist behind the counter of The Broadway department store in Anaheim, California.  “I was a makeup artist when I was in my early twenties at the mall, they never trained me,” Stefani told WWD. “I worked behind the counter there for Borghese, which nobody bought because it was expensive, and Ultima II, which I think is actually owned by Revlon… I’d be like, ‘Let me put some makeup on you, let me show you what you could look like.’ I just remember making people feel so much joy and so inspired and so full of confidence, and that’s what makeup can do.”

“Gwen will clearly appeal to makeup enthusiasts,” said Benjamin Karsch, Revlon’s chief marketing officer. “She’s known far and wide for her red lips, so that’s definitely part of the attractiveness as a brand ambassador for Revlon, but that’s really combined with who she is as a person and also her love story.”  Stefani, who is romantically involved with country singer, Blake Shelton, is particularly excited to associate with Revlon’s Choose Love Campaign.  ” I feel like that’s aligning exactly with where I’m at in my personal life in the last couple of years and how I’ve had to kind of choose love, choose truth, choose to be positive and work my way back to a place of using my gift and sharing my love with people,” she added.  This is not Stefani’s first foray into the cosmetics business.  The singer currently presides over a line of fragrances from her Harajuku Lovers brand, and has designed a capsule cosmetics collection with Urban Decay.

 

STYLE UPDATE: FLATTERING BANGS FOR EVERY FACE!

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

BangsLooking to update your look and give it some polish?  Bangs are flattering for any age and hair texture, according to celebrity stylist, Kattia Solano, of NYC’s Butterfly Studio Salon.  Solano, who’s clients have included Blake Lively, Adrienne Bailon, Olivia Palermo, Rose McGowan and Lauren Santo Domingo, suggests that having fab fringe means finding the right style for your face shape, and for your lifestyle!

Looking clockwise from top left, Oval faces (like Hannah Simone’s) are perfect for basically any bang.  “Select a bang that compliments your current cut to frame your face perfectly,” suggests Solano.  Heart-shaped faces (like Reese Witherspoon’s) have wider foreheads in comparison to their chins.  Long and tapered bangs with a center part or side sweep will “bring balance” to this face, as opposed to rounder shapes (like Rachel Bilson’s), which are pretty symmetrical.  “Choppy, asymmetrical bangs or long, face-framing bangs with a center part will help to elongate the face, drawing the eye upwards and giving your face more vertical space,” she suggests, and thick and tapered, whispy bangs on square faces (like Olivia Wilde’s), as they “add more visual width to your forehead which will soften your features and make your eyes pop.”

Not yet ready for a permanent update?  Solano recommends temporary bangs from Hair U Wear and Socap/ She USA, which are both found at Butterfly’s Bang Bar.

AWARD SEASON’S FINALE!

Monday, February 29th, 2016

ReVealingOn Sunday night, some of Hollywood’s leading ladies took the plunge in stunning, decolleté-baring, gowns, as Awards Season finally drew to a close.  A-listers, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, and Brie Larson led the trend, which was quickly followed by Saoirse Ronan, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, and Margot Robbie.

Best Actress winner, Larson, shined in a ruffled blue Gucci “illusion” gown, adorned with a sparkly belt.  Blanchett’s ethereal look, created by Armani Privé, was intricately embellished with delicate, feathered, flowers.  Theron and Lawrence‘s gowns, by Dior Haute Couture, were equally show-stoppers.   Thank goodness there were no wardrobe malfunctions here.
