Jamie-Lynn Sigler at the Tribeca Film Festival

This week, actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler got red carpet ready with M·A·C Cosmetics, donning a flirty AIX dress for LG and Tribeca Film Festivals’ “Keep Surfing” premiere at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.
NY Jets’ quarterback and co-host Mark Sanchez, along with fellow partygoers, were glued to the new LG Infinia LED HDTV that hosted the first-ever simultaneous movie premiere, but heads turned as the actress entered the room and unveiled her sultry eyes and beautiful dewy complexion.

Line your top and bottom lashes with M·A·C Eye Kohl in Smolder and Powersurge and smudge. Using a brush, blend a mixture of M·A·C Eye Shadow in Bronze and Woodwinked over your eyelids, starting at the lash line and stopping at the crease.

Swipe M·A·C Studio Fix Lash Mascara in Black Fix on the top lashes, then add a few faux lashes using M·A·C 4 Lash for a natural look. For a full brow, softly fill in and with M·A·C Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and shape and set them with M·A·C Brow Finisher.

For a natural satin finish use M·A·C Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation on the entire face. Follow with M·A·C Cream Colour Base in Pearl for a pale gold, shimmer effect. Contour the apples of the cheeks with M·A·C Powder Blush in Blunt. Finish with M·A·C Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder to set makeup and reduce shine.

My new Favorite Brush

Another masterpiece from Brushlab!
With having thick, natural wavy hair, I usually need to use a round brush to blowdry and control my hair.  I am so lucky to have found some new products that help aid that process.  Now I have found a brush too! 
The brush I found is made by BrushLab and it is a Thermal Round Hair Brush

in a 2.5 inch barrel. 

It features:

• 100% Natural premium cut boar bristles.
• Thermal ceramic coated barrel. Helps evenly distribute the heat to prevent over drying & damage.

• Maximum control = maximum results. Our signature comfort cozi™ grip is designed to massage and prevent slip ups.

• Faster blow dry.

I think my favorite part of this brush was the grip.  It really did help me stay in control and got the job done faster.  There is nothing more frustrating than dropping your brush five times while drying your hair.  I am really pleased with this brush and it has become my favorite. 

It can be purchased at: http://www.brushlove.com/brushlab-fresh-thermal-round-hair-brush-22822.html

Living Proof's Restyling Spray Review

Living Proof has done a great job with their Full and No Frizz products.  Now they have come up with something even better for your hair- a Restyling Spray so you don't even have to do your hair!  Well, sort of. 

Their new Restyling Spray is formulated to be applied to dry hair and is the perfect alternative to washing your hair.  It can also save you if you sleep in or get a last minute invite to a party.   Living Proof's lastest product detangles, reduces static, adds shine, adds softness and control, and even some hold.  It is safe for color-treated hair too, which is essential for me.
Here are some results I got from waking up with day-old hair (and I even left off the makeup for Lora). 

Notice how my hair is flat with tangles on the end and very blah. 

Beginning Time: 16 after

I spritzed about 10 pumps of the Restyling Spray all over my hair and used the flat iron on the ends. I added a touch of hairspray and I was done.  Less than 10 minutes (and that includes the flat iron heating up and me grabbing a beverage from the kitchen) and my hair was done.

8 minutes if you want to be precise. 

 Time to go!

Sebastian Volupt Spray Review

Fearless is thinking Outside the Box.  Maybe getting rid of the comfortable bob you have worn for years and trying something new.

Fearless is taking a deep breath and pushing yourself to do something you normally wouldn't do. 

Fearless is not being afraid of who you are and working with what you have.  Be Fearless.  Life is more Fun.

I recently had the opportunity to review Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray.  This spray is a volume-building spray gel that utilizes cushion particle technology.  I was excited to try this because I have used Sebastian Shaper Plus Hairspray for about 13 years and love it.  I was eager to see what the latest product from Sebastian Professional could do for me.  I have always had thick, coarse hair but I have noticed it thinning in the past few years.  I wanted to see if the Volupt Spray could come through for me in adding volume.  I also wanted to try a Fearless Look - just like in their ads.

 The before picture shows me with morning hair (washed the night before and dried naturally).  

I began my process by wetting my hair but not washing it.  I then used one grape-sized amount of Trevor Sorbie Deep Conditioning Treatment and did not rinse it out.  The next step was using about 10-13 sprays of Sebastian Volupt Spray.  I always tend to use a little more than recommended due to the thickness of my hair.  I worked it through to the ends with my hands. 

The Volupt Spray smelled great and the bottle comes with a great cap that actually stays on.  It wasn't sticky either like mousse.  The best part is that it contains a heat protectant.  I am always looking for ways to simplify my morning routine and using less products is a great way to do that.

 I then blew my hair dry with the diffuser attached to my blowdryer.  

After my hair was dry it was a little wild.  My hair is coarse and naturally wavy.  The Volupt Spray added a lot of volume and the feel of thickness to my hair. 

I then curled large sections in ringlets with a 1 1/2 inch barrel curling iron. 

I then flat-ironed the ends (I did not take a picture of this step).  The first look was...a little 80's.

I then chose to throw it up in a side ponytail, looping it as a loose bun and pulling it until I had the desired look.  Here is a picture of what it looked like before I pinned it closer to my head with one bobby pin.

To finish the look, I sprayed my hair with Sebastian Shaper Plus.  It literally took less than one minute so I didn't even get a picture.  I changed my lip color to a lighter shade (which I rarely do) and here is the final shot:

It is fearless to me because I would normally never wear this hairdo outside of the house.  As I said, I liked the entire review process of the Volupt Spray because it made me think outside the box and try something new.  It made me rethink more than my hairdo, but my wardrobe, and my attitude.  Sebastian hit a home run again!
