Crease No More

One of my New Years Resolutions is to revamp my entire makeup collection and I decided that this year I would invest in high quality brands.

mac_263x3872One of my first purchases towards the revamping of my makeup collection was the Paint Pot from MAC that I now completely swear by!  The MAC Paint Pots are highly pigmented, longwearing cream-based eye shadows. They blend on smooth and creamy, and then set to a crease-proof finish. They are used as a base on the eyelids before applying your eye shadows. By using the Paint Pot as the base, prevents the eye shadow from creasing on your eyelids. And I don’t know about you, but after a few hours of having makeup on, my eye shadow always creased and faded. And not only does it prevent the creasing, it makes your eye shadow last all day long!

Paint Pots are only $16.50 for 0.17 fl oz. jar, and I use the Painterly color. The MAC website says to apply with MAC Brush #217 but I just use my ring finger to apply.

Mac Paint Pots are highly luscious! Go out and get some and see for your self!

Krissy’s Red Carpet Oscar Winners…

Karina had some great picks for her Red Carpet Winners! Penelope, Kate & Jen definitely looked stunning on the red carpet for the 2009 Academy Awards. I always love the unveiling of the elegant gowns these actresses choose when the Oscars come around. While neither of my 3 picks won an award last night (2 of the ladies were presenters), they won in my eyes as trendsetters with amazing grace and style.

Pick One: Taraji P. Henson who was nominated for best supporting actress in, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button looked phenomenal in her white tiered gown by Roberto Cavalli. I have to say a reoccurring theme I noticed at the Oscars was the comeback of white, ivory and champagne colored gowns. (I get the feeling Michelle Obama influenced this trend with her gorgeous white Jason Wu inaugural gown). The gown fit Taraji’s figure perfectly. Her hair, jewelry (by Fred Leighton) , & red clutch tied in such a beautiful and elegant look. You may also remember Taraji rockin’ a simple white gown at the SAG awards in January. What I loved about Taraji in both white gowns was that she accomplished two completely different looks for the proper events. Finally, how can this woman be 38 years old?!?!? She looks 10 years younger AT LEAST 🙂 Taraji was my favorite from the night!

Karina’s Red Carpet Oscar Winners

Not only did Kate Winslet win Best Actress for her dramatic performance in “The Reader” last night, she also won big with her absolutely gorgeous Yves St. Laurent one-shoulder gray and black gown. The black lace and beading made this gown even that more stunning. Kate Winslet has really become a red carpet fashion icon over the years!
