Julianne Hough wears tarte at the Emmy Awards, and looks gorgeous!

Celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern created Julianne Hough's look for the Emmy Awards using my favorite cosmetics from tarte!

Inspiration: “I wanted her makeup to look as if she were a black and white photograph come to life.” –celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern for tarte cosmetics

  • “I prepped Julianne’s skin with tarte’s pure maracuja oil to give the skin a deep infusion of moisture and glow.”


Get Cat Deeley's Emmy Look with Avon!

So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley wowed the crowd when she stepped onto the red carpet tonight at the 64th annual Emmy Awards. Makeup Artist Amy Strozzi was the visionary behind the nominated host’s stunning beauty look. Amy put the focus on Cat’s eyes, layering a wet coffee shadow over a blend of multiple mocha shades for a modern take on the classic smokey eye.  Amy then upped the drama by smudging a dark brown liner on both top and bottom lashes and swiping black mascara on lashes for the finishing touch. 


To offset the intensity of the eyes, Amy kept the rest of Cat’s face simple: she gave Cat her signature sunkissed glow using Glow Powder Bronzer and added a rosy flush of color on Cat’s cheekbones using True Color Blush. Amy finally opted to give Cat a nude lip, which she achieved by applying a neutral lip liner over the entire lip and then swiping a matching lipstick.

  • True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte ($9)
  • True Color Eyeshadow Quad - Femme Fatale Collection ($9)
  • SuperSHOCK Max Mascara in Black ($9.50)

Nothing Shows Off Fall's Beauty Trends Like a Bright Smile

There is a briskness in the air these days, which means that fall is just around the corner! I love everything about autumn - toasty cashmere sweaters, elegant wool coats, crisp denim and gorgeous knee-high riding boots - sartorial perfection.  And another thing I love about the changing seasons is that it is the perfect time to change out my makeup drawer as well.  Buh-bye to the glossiness of summer and hello to rich, sumptuous shades for fall.  This fall makeup trends run the gamut from black cherry lips and gold highlighted eyes to a fresh-faced finish with emphasis on the eyes. Here is one of my favorite looks for fall:

Fresh, flawless skin with healthy rosy cheeks.  Emphasis on the eyes with a smoky shadow rimmed in a rich kohl.  Nude lips with just a hint of gloss.  Absolutely gorgeous!  And of course, there is nothing like a bright, white smile to help you make the ultimate beauty statement this fall.  Which is why I love REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips.

They are so easy to use!  Simply apply and go about your morning/evening routine!  They dissolve within about 10 minutes, then you just rinse and go. They have a light minty taste and leave your smile looking bright and feeling fresh.  The price is another pleasant surprise - a box of 56 strips is just $22.99!   I have been using them for the past two weeks and I can already see a difference, which is fabulous since the best accessory for your sassy summer wardrobe is a cheery bright smile.
REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Stain Dissolving Strips dissolve on your teeth in minutes to easily remove tough stains caused by coffee and wine.  Get a whiter smile in 2 weeks.  Visit to learn more or purchase REMBRANDT® products.

Win a pair of Christian Louboutin-designed Cinderella Slippers in the "Search for the Perfect Fit" Contest!

Ahhh, another day, another pumpkin...

Honestly, I work and I slave and all I ask is that occasionally, just occasionally I can catch a break.  A quiet walk in the woods with all my little forest friends to keep me company.  Maybe a relaxing cup of tea and a slice of pumpkin bread in front of a roaring fire after a hard day's work.  Or perhaps a well deserved spa day with my fairy godmother...

But what's this?  A chance to steal the heart of that gorgeous Prince Charming in the castle up on the hill?  I've met him and let me tell you he's just adorable.  In fact, I crashed one of his parties recently and we danced the night away.  Well, actually we danced together 'til midnight, he wanted to introduce me to his parents, and even though I looked gorgeous in my blue satin mini and black leggings, I just didn't have the proper footwear to do the ensemble justice.  And P.Charm. said his mother would have an absolute conniption if I showed up barefoot.  Alas, all I could do was give him a quick smooch on the cheek and dash off into the darkness. *Sigh*, if I only had the shoes...

Well my dears, here's your chance to win the heart of your Prince Charming with the perfect pair of Cinderella Slippers from Christian Louboutin in the "Search for the Perfect Fit" contest.  You can share your own look on Facebook for a change to win it! One lucky winner will receive an actual pair of Christian Louboutin-designed Cinderella slippers! Check out the contest details here to enter the sweepstakes and see if you're a perfect fit!

“NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER. Contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia, age 18 or older. Entries must be received between 7:00PM Eastern Time (ET)  on September 4, 2012 and 11:59 PM ET on September 11, 2012. See rules at Sponsor: Glam Media, Inc."
