#GETTHELOOK

3. Create a solid center part before pulling hair tightly back into a ponytail that rests just above the nape of the neck, but below the center of the head; firmly secure with an elastic.

4. Taking two sections from the ponytail begin to strongly knot the sections tightly doing this continuously until the end of the ponytail.

5. Coil the knotted sections up into the base of the ponytail letting random pieces poke out for a sculptured look and added detail. Secure the knotted bun with pins until it is tight to the head.

6. Apply Hair Spray onto a small bristled brush and gently use on the top of the head toward the bun to smooth flyaways.

Product Spotlight: DS LABS CELLULITE REDUCING GEL

Woman's Fingers Touching her body parts

As many of us may already know, cellulite cannot be treated by exercise alone. While great for overall health, exercise does little or nothing to break up and drain the unsightly dimpled fat trapped under the skin of legs, thighs, and buttocks. Plus, no amount of dieting will fix the cellulite problem. It may reduce fat overall, but not those unsightly local deposits.

The secret is to deliver active ingredients down to layers of skin where cellulite forms. Penetration means the difference between eliminating unsightly dimples and nodules of fat versus merely moisturizing them. Oligo.DX is formulated unlike anything else you have tried, regardless of cost.

The micro patch caffeine in Oligo.DX has proven superior to free-form caffeine. While free-form caffeine diffuses almost immediately, micro patch caffeine penetrates the skin deeper to persist longer, thus dissolving lymphatic build-up better to reveal smoother, firmer skin.

With this unique gel, dimpled fat impervious to diet and exercise alone takes on a smoother, healthier appearance, because the active ingredients come encapsulated in microspheres called Nanosomes, each 200 times smaller than a human skin cell. State-of-the-art Nanosome technology was developed by DS Laboratories.

While common creams cannot even penetrate the dermis, where cellulite forms, tiny Nanosomes burrow deep below the surface of skin to merge with cellular tissues, thus releasing ingredients slowly. This highly effective delivery system means that Oligo.DX® has proven itself as effective as microinjection therapy at a fraction of the cost. In just a few weeks, 89 percent of users witness smoother thighs, hips, and buttocks.

How to Use:
How To Use DS Laboratories Oligo.DX:
After bathing, apply DS Laboratories Oligo.DX to the affected areas once per day. You do not need to massage this product into the skin. For even more noticeable results, keep applying the treatment for at least 60 days. As a preventative, use 2-3 times a year and apply for 30 days.

All That Glitters: Chanel’s Metallic Cat-Eye Makeup

131bd68903b0d99cb3f93d866ad8c2dc

If you really wanted to rock an eye-catching look, you could really go for it with Chanel’s glitter glam cateye.

Peter Phillips, the key makeup artist behind the look shared that for his beauty inspiration, Karl Lagerfeld gave him a few key ideas to start off with: Iridescence, and a focus on the eyes,” says the artist. “We decided to go for light and fresh makeup, with a twist. For the eye makeup, I went for a classic black eyeliner and combined with an exaggerated holographic under-eyeliner in different-sized glitters.”To get the look right, the Phillips paired the dramatic eyes with bare-looking faces and sheer lipshine.

No, it’s not your everyday makeup — but, we’re dying to take it for a spin for our next big night out. What do you think about Chanel’s haute-couture take on the cat-eye? Would you give these lids a whirl, or do you think that it’s best left on the runway?

SPOTLIGHT: GOLDEN GLOBE HAIR – SIENNA MILLER

2015-golden-globes-beauty-sienna-miller

When Sienna Miller stormed onto the red carpet at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards it wasn’t just her plunging Miu Miu frock that has us obsessed! It was her beautiful, sweeping hairstyle. This look is youthful, edgy and seemingly low-maitenance. While we’re guessing Sienna had a team of hair & make-up artists to get her red-carpet ready, we believe you can easily recreate this look at home.

Sienna-Miller-551522

Start by blow drying with volume throughout, using a medium sized curling iron to create a bend from the mid-length to the ends of the hair

Finish by using texturizing spray to create the perfectly disheveled edge. Mist all over whilst running your hands throughout.

Ultimately, your mood determines which nail polish color you choose. Are you feeling feminine, a sheer nude with a hint of pink like OPI Samoan Sand or bold like a vibrant yellow or pink? According to many studies, a person’s attraction to particular shades can speak volumes about their personality. Where do you fall?

A beautifully painted black manicure is extremely chic. Having said that most women wearing a black mani are creative types that think out of the box — and a little bit of a rebel.

#GETTHELOOK

1. With a black longwear kohl liner line the lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner then out and up towards the end of the brow like you would a classic cat eye.
2. Then from the point you ended on, draw a line back across the crease, ending in the inner corner where you started in Step 1.
3. Go back and fill in the area you just outlined.
4. Line the bottom lashline and inner waterline with the same black pencil.
5. Set the liner with a black shimmer shadow so it doesn’t crease or travel.
3. Finish the eye with a couple coats of volumizing mascara.
4. Look directly into the mirror and adjust the shape with a pointed Q-tip if needed.
