Want to achieve a totally feminine make-up look that you can sport day or night? Look no further than the glimmering pink-flushed cheeks, the fluttery lashes and the subtly accentuated lips that hit the runway at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2012 show at New York Fashion Week. Don’t know about you beauties, but we love this look to bits!
And lucky for us (and you!) we’ve got Revlon Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, on hand to tell us how she created the look for Oscar de la Renta’s show:
1.) Create smooth, flawless looking skin with Revlon PhotoReady Makeup.
2.) To give your cheeks some added radiance, blend Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes into the contour of your cheeks.
3.) Lightly dust some Revlon Powder Blush in Smoky Rose over the apples of your cheeks, building up the intensity of the colour until you’ve achieved the flush you desire.
5.) Use a lash curler to curl your lashes and open up your eyes, before giving them a good slick of Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara in Blackest Black. To finish, apply some Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Prim Rose to your lips, and increase their sheen with Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Peony.
How do you like to add a feminine touch to your look?
A moist pink cream blush (like the one in the photo) is my best bet for a soft girlie accent, along with Revlon Icy Nude lipstick - I'm in love with the shade, just enough colour so I don't look washed out...

I love pink blush, lip lipstick, and a soft brown smokey eye :)

We bet our best beauty products that you’ve never really heard of noni extract. Or if you have, you just know it as an ingredient found in natural or organic beauty products.
Well, allow us to educate you, because seriously, this is one ingredient you will want in ALL of your beauty products!
Noni (pronounced no-knee, rhymes with Sony) is a plant that has been around for thousands of years and is widely used to treat various ailments and conditions, including poor digestion, skin disorders, allergies, arthritis, and diabetes. More importantly, in beauty products, noni extract is a pretty powerful antioxidant, so it helps protect skin from free radicals while aiding cell regeneration, improving cell function, and helping heal skin.
So it’s not hard to see why Miranda Kerr would choose to use this wondrous natural ingredient in all of her KORA Organics products (maybe it’s the noni she drinks everyday that keeps her looking so damn beautiful!).
If you’re looking to get some more noni in your life (as you should), then we highly recommend you get your hands on these must-have KORA Organics products:
Cream Cleanser – If your skin is dry and dehydrated, you’ll want this nourishing, natural cleanser in your bathroom cupboard at all times. And if you have sensitive skin — fear not, the gentle formula is perfect for you.
Vitamin Enhanced Lip Balm — Why put up with dry and chapped lips when you can have this lip balm in your purse? Enriched with jojoba, avocado, rosehip, vitamins C and E, and (of course), noni extract, the lip treatment will keep your lips soft and smooth.
Daily Hand Cream — The skin on your face isn’t the only skin that needs attention. Give your hands a youthful, replenishing boost with this quick-absorbing hand cream. It’s perfect for cuticles too!

Looking for an organic face mask?...
Which ingredients do you love having in your beauty products?
I like aloe vera, cucumber, green tea as well as hyaluronic acid. I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to ingredients but anything containing these appeal to me more.

Aloe vera, vitamin E, green tea, pomegranate and probably many more, but like Evanescencessy, I'm not super knowledgeable when it comes to ingredients.

Do you feel your pulse race when you stumble across brand new beauty brands? Are you constantly on the hunt for new hair and beauty finds to update your kit with? If so, chances are you’re already very familiar with Price Attack, and its wide variety of hair and beauty solutions, especially of the at-home and do-it-yourself varieties.
What you may not be aware of however (and I’ve made it my mission to fill you in), is that there are a few new brands around that are exclusive to Price Attack – brands that you’d be bonkers not to get your hands on. Let’s get up close and personal, shall we?
Introducing… Rokk96 – think 96 shades of multicoloured bliss for your digits. No matter what your mood or which trend you want to tap into, for a cool $7.95, you’ll be able to cater to your every colourful whim!
… and Elkie – make curls, flicks and poker straight strands daily staples in your hair wardrobe, with the help of ionic technology and slimline ceramic tourmaline floating plates. In addition to that, the adjustable heat control (up to 210 degrees Celsius) and automatic switch-off after 30 minutes (if left unattended) means that you can concentrate on your hair woes without having to worry about leaving your styler on.
Which brand are you most excited to try?
I have heard of Rokk96 before, the polishes look amazing and they come in a HUGE variety of shades. unfortunately There is no price attack that is close to me, my closet store is probably 30 minutes drive away and I never seem to go up that way.

Rokk66 sounds vaugely familiar to me, i shall have to pop into priceline soon and check them out, but seeing as hair gadgets are my big weakness it will be interesting to see what the Elkie products are like.

What do you get when you combine make-up artists and bloggers? Lots of online make-up lessons, that’s what! Well that’s what we found when we stumbled across Little Miss Makeup. We wanted to find out more, so we just had to chat about the best parts of being a make-up artist and why being a beauty blogger is so great.
- 1. What types of things inspire you when writing your blog?
As a professional make-up artist, I am always inspired by new season trends and what's happening on the international runways. I also like to write about the beauty products I love, and share tips and tricks.
- 2. Which other blogs do you really admire?
Only a few years ago, the world of professional makeup artistry was a very secretive business. But as a result of blogging and other forms of social media, this is no longer the case. Many of the international makeup artists I admire now have blogs, for example lisaeldridge.com, kaymontano.com and makeupmole.com, which give great insight into the industry.
- 3. Describe your blog in three words.
Make-up lessons online.
- 4. Do you have a particular subject area that you enjoy covering, for example hair or skincare? Why?
Makeup is my passion. It’s my career, my hobby and my best friend!
- 5. What are the best things about having your own blog?
It allows me to connect with people all over the world – people I may not have otherwise met. I hope my make-up tutorials make a positive difference to the women who watch them. My aim is to educate, inspire and empower.
What make-up tutorials do you most want to see?
This sounds wonderful. I'd love to learn more about achieving a perfect night look :)
