Celebrity Hairstylist Ivan Torres of Angelo David Salon tells us how to get the exact look with just a few steps!
1. Apply the Angelo David Premier Volume Spray ($18.50) and blowdry hair smooth using the Angelo David Round Brush $55 (available at www.angelodavid.com ).
2. Next, use a 1.5 inch curling iron to create your set and style the Angelo David Clip-on Extensions. Allow the hair to cool after your set.
3. Gently use your fingers to break up the curls, then tease the back of the crown to create lift. Finish the look with a medium hold hairspray.

I love almost everything Josie Maran comes out with these days. Her new Argan Oil (all natural, 100% organic, chemical-free) products are amazing. Argan oil is an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids with healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties that keep your skin nourished and revitalized.
The newest Josie Maran eye shadow palettes, Argan Beautiful Eyes, are richly infused with Argan Oil and a blend of floral and fruit extracts resulting in soft nutrient rich iridescent, matte and satin textures.
I have the "Beautiful Blues" palette and have loved playing around with the different color combinations. Although the palette comes with simple step-by-step instructions on which shade goes where, I've been playing around with the bottom right, peach-gold color and the dark blue, thin strip of shadow that Josie suggest using as an eyeliner. I don't think you can go wrong mixing and matching any of these color combos! They are all like velvet and rich in color pigmentation.
If you're not into the blues, there are also "Nude", "Purple" and "Smoke" palettes available. I may have to get the "Purple" soon!

I'm a huge fan of Drew Barrymore, not only for her hundreds of awesome movies, but now, also for her super affordable, amazing cosmetics line, Flower Beauty. Available at Wal Mart, Drew's new line of cosmetics are custom-formulated with the same ingredients used in luxury make up. Their exclusive botanical-infused Soft-Focus Complex illuminates for a lit-from-within effect.
How is Flower Beauty so affordable? Well, instead of spending top dollar on advertising, Flower Beauty is promoted by Drew herself, saving the company so much money, they can offer their products to us for a bargain! So there is no excuse not to try everything!
My favorites so far are:
Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara that lengthens, curls and thickens with an adjustable brush that lets you control how natural or dramatic your lashes look.
Face the World Tinted Moisturizer, that offers a hint of tint and flawless, lightweight coverage.
Color Play Creme Eye Shadows in Wild Geranium and Rest On Your Laurel, both soft, creme based eye shadows that don't crease and pack a ton of color in just a small amount.
Flower Beauty offers a wide variety of eye shadows, nail polishes, face make up and lip colors (just to name a few!). Check it all out at Wal Mart and by clicking here to get to the Flower Beauty website.
Don't have time for a trip to the spa? Then try Seba Med Spa Shower! Formulated with water lily extract, Seba Med Spa Shower maintains the moisture balance of your skin during showering. The relaxing fragrance and soap-free formula won't strip skin of its natural lipid content. Instead, this dermatologist tested shower gel promotes maintenance of the skin barrier. This helps to prevent moisture loss throughout the day.
I've been using Seba Med Shower Gel for a week and love it. It's very mild and doesn't cause dryness. It's botanically based and revitalizes skin and protects against dehydration leaving your skin ultra soft to the touch all day long. Seba Med Shower Gel is suitable for all skin types and helps to maintain the natural health of your skin, leaving you with a feeling of well-being, like you just left the spa!

Some fun new makeup from Lush has landed in my lap and I love it! Other than the adorable packaging, the colors really pop and and last all day. The Emotional Brilliance line from Lush is made up of dozens of vibrant colors for eyes, lips and skin. Right now, I have on Motivation, a two-tone, peacock blue liquid eyeliner. It goes on smooth and is really easy to apply...no clumps! Perspective, a natural dusky-rose lip gloss is the perfect neutral gloss that is easily worn every day. At Lush, they NEVER test their products on animals and their products are made from organic fruit and vegetables and they use only vegetarian ingredients! Pretty amazing!
