The Secret to having the Perfect Hair Bun

Didn't we all fall in love with Carrie Bradshaw's hair at Charlotte's (first) wedding? She had this amazing updo -a so called BUN. 

After that she was sporting that do for quite some time ;) 
Well know we have figured out Ms. Bradshaw's secret- a hair donut! It's an amazing hair tool which is very easy to use! All you need is to tie up your hair (tightly) and a few bobby pins depending on how thick your hair is. The buns come in different colors so if you have light hair choose a doughnut closest to your (natural or man made! ) haircolor. 

The donut is available here for UK readers  for US & international readers and Swedish readers

     Below we have a video tutorial to show you guys how to use the donut to get the perfect hair bun!

Good luck with your hair buns =)

How-to-get-the-look Academy Awards 2012

Tis the season! Award shows are on full gear! We just did a how-to-get-the-look Grammy's edition and now it's time for the best awards show in the entertainment business The Oscars™. It only comes by once a year, as soon as the show is over everyone anticipates next year's show! There were so many beautiful ladies (and gorgeous gentlemen ;)

This year  one caught our extra attention with her stunning dress but most of all her stunning makeup! Off course we are talking about Jennifer Lopez in her AMAZING Zuhair Murad gown!

From a distance she looked amazing, whenever there was a close-up you could see that she was even more flawless. The choice of color with this gown was just a stroke of genius by who-ever-is-doing-JLO's- makeup!  

As usual, Jennifer Lopez has preferred a more shimmering base makeup. Start off by using good day cream, No 7 Moisture Quench  from Boots is a fragrant free day cream which is absorbed in seconds! A great products which goes to proof that a budget product does not mean low quality ;) A foundation that gives a full coverage and has little shimmer (but just enough to give you the JLO glow!) is Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation from  M.A.C. The foundation in the picture is NC25 which is in the same tone color region as Jennifer Lopez has. If that is not your color M.A.C always have a range colors for everyone, no worries ;) Finish off the base makeup with a shimmering blush with pink pigmentation with an ounce of  bronze color. Mineralize Blush from M.A.C. Warm soul is perfect for this look just make sure that you use a small amount! 

 Jennifer Lopez is a fan of the earthy tones. Brown, beige, gold are colors that she seems to prefer. This time is no exception. Always start by using a good qualtiy eye primer, if there is something that is worthy spending an extra dime on it's this! M.A.C. has a great eye primer Paint Pot. The Paint Pot in the picture is Soft Ochre choose a Paint Pot that is close to your own skin tone.
As we can see in the close-up picture of Jennifer Lopez she has a shimmering light eyeshadow Wet n' Wild has an amazing eyeshadow pallet Vanity which has a shimmering light beige (champagne like color) make sure to apply the eyeshadow on the lid and up towards the eyebrows. In the hollow regions of your eyelids apply Make Up Store eyeshadow Kakaw. Because Kakaw is a dark brown eyeshadow it needs a light brown/gold eyeshadow (Wet n' Wild Vanity Palett) to ease the contours. 
H&M'Chocolate eyeliner pen is a easy to handle pen which lasts longer than you would think! Draw a thin stroke of the brown pencil on the eyelid but also on the lower parts of the eye. You will need a white eyeliner (which Jennifer Lopez loves!) to draw just above the brown eyeliner at the end of the eye and on the under eye.
Choose Eyelashes that are natural look and not too dramatic. Ardell's #125 is perfect for this look. 


Jennifer Lopez has chosen a pale beige/pink lipstick. Make Up Store has a lipstick which is a favorite among many called Baby or M.A.C. equivalent Creme d'Nude goes perfectly with this look!

 Have fun with this look! Glam it up ;)

We are seeing a lot of brands really going all in with  pink shades of lipstick. Isadora is not the exception! They have come out with their Jelly Kiss lipsticks! Today, I finally got my Isadora nr 54!! 
Isadora's Jelly Kiss nr. 54 is a fun lipstick and very true to its collections name because it's really moist just like jelly! The lipstick is like a lip balm + gloss and the most important it has incredible pigmentation.The color is a bright pink but still a feeling of a frosty rose which is perfect for this late winter and early spring time of the year!  This shade of color is all over the place! Make sure to try it ASAP because you will get hooked!

How-to-get-the-look Grammys 2012

Adele Edition 

Adele was not only shining at the Grammys because of the amount of shimmering Grammys she had in her arms! She had a classic old Hollywood makeup with carbon black eyelashes with a matte red lipstick and a non-existing blush she prefered a matte foundation instead which she pulls of gracefullly. 
Starting off by using a foundation that gives a full coverage and a matte look is a good start to getting Adele's Grammy look! Maybelline's Dream Sating Foundation has a mousse like quality that is easy to apply and gives a full coverage without looking greasy. No blush is needed for this look!
As you can see (the image above) Adele has a very bright eyeshadow Too Faced's Romantic Eye palette has just the right colors to give you the right look! The eyeshadow Soulmates is a bright beige color with very little shimmer but enough to make a difference ;) Apply Soulmates on the entire eyelid and apply eyeshadow Cut the Cake very gently on the hollow regions of your eyelids, but a very small amount of Cut the Cake otherwise you will look like lavender ghost! 
Adele is a huge fan of dark liquid eyeliner and that is exactly what you need for this look! A carbon black eyeliner and mascara is perfect ;) Estéer Lauder Double Wear Liquid Eyeliner and L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara. 
To finish off the eye look is a pair of eyelashes from Ardell's (our favourite eyelash brand!). For this look #101 is just perfect! Do not use these eyelashed if you want a natural look, these eyelashes are anything but natural looking! They are dark, think and long = very dramatic! 
Finish off the entire look with a matte red lipstic of your choice! M.A.C red is a classic and a natural choice for us to give this look a last push!
