Celebrity makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua worked with Guerlain cosmetics to create Hilary Swank’s makeup look at the 2008 Academy Awards. The look was all about the eyes. To create dramatic ones, she used several coats of the new Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara on the top and bottom lashes and silvery, charcoal shades of eyeshadow from Guerlain’s Spring palette. She paired this with soft pink glossy lips for an ultra feminine look.
Here’s the complete list of Guerlain products Kara used:
·Le 2 de Guerlain Two-Brush Mascara in Black
·4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Perle d’Argent (pearl /gray shimmer /
gunmetal shimmer / charcoal)
·KissKiss Gloss in Rose Florida
·Orchidée Impériale Eye & Lip Cream

Love ya, mean it!
So my parents drove in for dinner to try out a new restaurant on my street called Pamplona (delish!)and I’m kind of delayed. Pamplona, BTW, is on 28th Street between Park and Madison.
Apparently, everyone’s schvitzing to death under the tent. Ryan Seacrest’s personality is grating on my sanity.
I’m totes behind, but here’s whose looks I’m loving so far on the Red Carpet:
Heidi Klum’s hair, dress and makeup is TO DIE. Red looks smashing on her, she’s KILLING the red carpet. I love her enorm filled with extensions bun.
“They transported me to Oscar nights in the mid-to-late 1960s: back when the Oscars meant something. Real men with sideburns wore butterfly bow ties and were fighting drunk, and women back-combed their hair into ice sculptures and painted Cleopatra eyeliner halfway up each temple.”
I adore her writing. She should pay me to do her PR, right? Read the article here.
P.S. I’m planning to liveblog some (depending on how I’m feeling) of the Oscars. Stay tuned. Missed last year’s Oscars liveblogging sesh? Read it here.
Skyn Iceland Cloud Cream delivers: after this wretched snowy week, I’ve been using the divinely-scented cream to calm my red, raw, flu-ravaged nose. Is that gross? Well, it’s grosser to stand idly by doing nothing, friends. My nose is on its way to recovery, thanks to Skyn Iceland!
Here’s the part that’s more of a nightmare than a dream:
Pure Cloud Cream costs $75 for the 1.7 oz. jar. I find it difficult to throw down so much moolah for a tiny little jar. That said, its blend of aloe, oat extracts and peptides brightened my skin tone AND didn’t react negatively with my iffy combo skin. It’s available at SkynIceland.com, Sephora Stores, sephora.com, beauty.com, as well as other fine retailers.
