I thought everyone looked beautiful at this years 2008 Oscar’s – but of course a few stood out more than others. I saw a lot of red lipstick, and Smokey eye’s with nude lips – which you all know I love! – And I also saw no make.up at all from Tilda Swinton. Do you think she ran out of time? I wonder what happened there? She could have at least put on some mascara….anyways…Here is are my top two favourite looks from the evening:
1. Jennifer Garner – Her nude lip was paired perfectly with her dark black eyeliner!
2. Katherine Heigl - The perfect red lips – worn with confidence and class!
Who did you think looked the best? I would love to hear from you with your top favourite make.up looks from this years 2008 Oscar’s.

Q: Hi, Sandy. I am your big fan. I have a question about make.up remover. How do you take off heavy coats of mascara and smokey eye make.up without irritating your eyes?…I find my eye’s get really red when I use an oil-based make.up remover…Do you have any tricks when taking of mascara? Thank you! (From – Citrus)
A: Dear: In need of removal, You are not alone! I get all kinds of questions asking me to recommend the best way to remove eye make.up. So here are some of my tips and tricks:
To avoid irritating your eye’s try using an oil-free make.up remover. I use Rimmel London – Gentle Eye Make Up Remover - which is so fantastic – it even removes waterproof mascara! And the best part is that it’s under $10!! and, as you know, I LOVE that!
Start by removing the mascara first. Wet a Q-tip with your eye makeup remover and begin to remove just the mascara. Note: If you’re wearing a lot of mascara – this part may require a few Q-tips!
Next, remove the rest of your eye make.up. Wet a cosmetic pad and/or cotton ball with eye make.up remover and begin to remove the remaining eye make.up.
Last but not least, wash your face and eye’s with a mild non-irritating face wash for an overall clean feeling!
Well, I hope this helped you out! Thank you so much Citrus for your question! And Ladies don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!

So I went out for dinner this weekend with my sister – Kristina – who couldn’t stop laughing at the static cling problem my hair was having all through dinner!! How is it that her hair had no static and looked fabulous in the Winter? She began to tell me about this new product she had just bought from Sephora called Ojon – Revitalizing Mist. It’s a leave-in conditioner, that not only detangles your hair but leaves it feeling silky soft! Not to mention it smells great and tames your fly-aways! I just tried it and I absolutely love it!! My sister also mentioned to mist it over towel dried hair and comb it through with a wide tooth comb for the perfect pre-styling finish!
FYI: Did you know that brushing your hair while wet has been shown to increase split-ends, while using a wide tooth comb not only prevents this from happening but also de-tangles your hair even more efficiently! HELLO COMB – GOOD-BYE BRUSH!

What did you guys think of this year’s Grammy’s? I actually thought it was a little boring, but I did have fun watching to see what everyone was wearing and of course checking out their make.up! So here is who I thought had the Best make.up at this years 2008 Grammy’s: And the Winner is: Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles. Her skin looked so flawless last night with a light smokey eye, beautiful peach nude lip and matching blush. I loved it!
