Seeing Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Right now, I'm sure many of you are sporting green tongues ( I know I am). Tonight, green makeup are going to be used and abused.  Show your Irish(ish) pride with a sweep of minty green eyeshadow. It's suttle, yet very fresh for spring. Using a fluffy brush wash a metallic pale green shadow over the entire lid. Add dark green or black liner to the lashline for definition. Don't forget a good coat of mascara.

The Oscars: Aging Young Hollywood

Any actress would be lying if they said they didn't want to win an academy award. However, someone needs to tell some young hollywood starlets that dressing like you're as old as Judi Dench isn't the best place to start. The upstyling and long trains on the painfully pale dresses of Miley Cyrus and Amanda Seyfried aged them at least five years. I keep forgetting that Miley Cyrus is only 18! Whatever happened to youthful toustled hairstyles?  I'm well aware that nude is the colour pallette of the season but while i'm still in my youth I'm going to embrace neons and other shockingly bright hues while its still age appropriate.

Split Ends

A haircut can be an emotional experience. For myself it is usually a monthly clean up to get rid of split ends because I am too chicken to part with my long layers and I am deathly afraid of blunt cuts. My dear friend, Stefannie Flannigan is fearless when it comes to her hair choices. Blonde, red, brown, long and short Stef has done it all. For the past two weeks, we have been filming a short film entitled, Split Ends. It showcases a woman's attempt to remove memories of her reckless past, regrets and a bad breakup with a drastic new haircut. In this short film, Stef goes from shoulder length hair to a Carey Mulligan inspired pixie cut.

This film is as low budget as they come, so rather than getting a pro to do it she trusted me with a pair of kitchen scissors--and I must say it turned out pretty sweet.

Fresh haircut hair without the haircut?

HerCut is a new product line being carried at Sephora stores and online. It promises specialized care for different types of haircuts. It also promises to enhance the longevity of your haircut and keep your hair feeling clean for up to 3 days after washing and using their products. If any of you have tried any thing from the HerCut line let me know.

I hope this does what it says it does.  I can't wait to try this out once I've finished with my never ending litres of Aveda's Clove Shampoo and Color Conserve Conditioner.
