Affiliate Link Press Sample

Happy 2017! Freshening up your makeup routine is a great way to jump into the New Year with a pretty new look. I like to take re-evaluate my makeup collection this time of year. It is time to sort through the old, downsize, and then add new items. Lip products are a category that I clean out more frequently as I feel that lip items expire quicker than powder formulas. So, I am super excited to add new items in! 

Avon has a fantastic range of tinted lip balms: Avon's True Color Balms. These balms provide moisture as well as a beautiful pop of color. I was able to try out the full shade range and really like them all! Shades include: Cherry Kiss, Pink Pucker, Coral Crush, Plum Passion, Peach Pout.

Pucker up and experience the comfort of 4x the hydration with Avon True Color Lip Balm. Formulated with mega-moisturizing Vitamin E to instantly hydrate and nourish lips, this next-generation tinted balm provides lightweight, buildable color that’s never waxy, sticky, gritty, or drying. Available in five on-trend shades – from barely-there pink to deep plum – this breakthrough balm leaves lips silky and buttery soft while improving the overall condition of your pout.

The Avon True Color balms have a moist and creamy feel while giving buildable light to medium color. These really feel nice on the lips and give such a pretty pop of color. The best part? These are so affordable! They retail for $4.00, but right now are $2.99 on!

Get the Golden Globes Look with Neutrogena: Kristen Bell and Kerry Washington

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Weren't the Golden Globes fun to watch! I love seeing my favorite celebrities all glammed up: the hair, the makeup, the dresses... So much inspiration! 

So, I am super happy to be able to share the beauty breakdown for two of my favorite celebrity looks from the evening: Neutrogena's brand ambassadors Kristen Bell and Kerry Washington. Both girls looked absolutely stunning! Find out exactly how their looks were created below, directly from the Neutrogena team:


Makeup Artist Carola Gonzalez

I was inspired by the glamour of the Dolce & Gabbana dress. The slickness of the hair called for a glamorous, classic, and sexy makeup, which is exactly what I went for. Glamour, glamour, glamour in every sense of the word!!! - Carola


Skin Prep: 
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel (New)
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment (New – February 2017)

Concealer: Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer – Deep (New – February 2017)
Foundation: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint – Cocoa (New – February 2017)
Blush: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Flushed
Eyes: Neutrogena Nourishing Longwear Eyeshadow Palette: Mink Brown Eyeshadow
Eyeliner - Neutrogena’s Nourishing Eyeliner - Cosmic Black 
Eyebrows: Anastasia Brow Wiz - Brunette 
Mascara: Neutrogena Healthy Volume- Mascara - Carbon Black
Velour Mink Lashes: Day and Night - (Night)
Lips: Dolce & Gabbana Glam 355 lipstick layered with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Deep Plum

First Kerry cleansed her skin with the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleanser prior to starting makeup application - it's always best to start with a fresh face. In order to achieve Kerry’s glowing complexion, I always start by applying Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel to boost hydration and nourish the skin. This is one of the best primers to use before makeup application because it hydrates the skin while creating a smooth canvas. Then I moisturize lips with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment (launching February 2017) and leave it on until the end, and blot before lipstick application. Once the Hydro Boost is absorbed into the skin, I begin makeup application. 

My first step is to highlight and conceal imperfections wherever needed with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer in Deep (launching February 2017). I apply it under the eye area to conceal any darkness and highlight the area, on the nose bridge, center chin, and center forehead. To create an even skin tone on Kerry, I used Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint in Cocoa (launching February 2017).  This is the new foundation Neutrogena is launching with the benefits of hyaluronic acid - it hydrates for 24 hours, has great coverage and creates a radiant, healthy complexion without having to use any additional enhancers on the skin. It’s the perfect match to Kerry’s skin tone, and makes her skin look flawless. I apply it all over her face and blend with a round brush for a smoother application. Right after the foundation, I always like to apply the blush on the apple of the cheeks and blend upward towards the temples. In this case, I wanted Kerry to have a flushed look, and actually used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Flushed, which did exactly what I wanted.

For the eyes I went for a shade that resembled Kerry’s own skin tone. Something that accentuated her eyelids in a fresh natural manner. I used Neutrogena Nourishing Longwear Eyeshadow Palette: Mink Brown Eyeshadow. To recreate Kerry’s eyes, I applied eyeshadow (#3) all over her eyelid and blended to crease with a blending brush. With the same eyeshadow I lined the bottom lash line using a small brush. I proceeded to line the upper lash line, following Kerry’s eye shape, with Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black. In order to make Kerry’s eye pop, I adhered a strip of Velour’s Mink Lashes, from the Day and Night set, using the Night strip. Then I layered a few coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black to top and bottom lashes and brushed lashes with a brow brush to separate lashes and get rid of any mascara excess.
To accentuate Kerry’s eyebrows I used Anastasia’s Brow Wiz in Brunette. I penciled eyebrows in the direction of hair growth using a matching shade to Kerry’s own eyebrow’s color. 

I always finish the look with the lipstick and in this case I layered Dolce & Gabbana’s Glam 355 lipstick with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Deep Plum.

Hair Stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew


When I saw her Dolce & Gabbana dress I was truly inspired to go with a simple, sleek hairstyle with color. 

I felt like the dress was a very traditional and elaborate design that called for a very simplistic sleek, smoothed-out hairstyle with color and very slight body in the hair. - Takisha


Neutrogena Anti-Reside Shampoo

Neutrogena Triple Repair Deep Recovery Hair Mask


GHD Platinum Air Dryer

GHD Platinum flat iron 

GHD size 3 ceramic barrel brush 


TSDHair Extensions Clip ins

Custom brown color

Blonde clipins 

Natural brown clip ins 


I shampooed her hair with Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo and conditioned her hair with Neutrogena Triple Repair Deep Recovery Hair Mask. The conditioner gave Kerry's hair a really nice shine as well as softened her hair strands. 

Secondly, I blew out her damp hair with the GHD air elite blow dryer and used the GHD size 3 ceramic vented radial brush to straighten her natural hair. Then I parted her hair across the back at the nape and smoothed out her hair with the GHD platinum flat iron and worked my way throughout her hair to finish off the look. I love this flat iron because of its even heat and all you need is one stroke across the hair to smooth it. 

To finish off her hairstyle, I parted her hair on the left side because I thought it complemented the dress well. Then I parted her hair in the back and clipped in TSDHair extensions, as well as in the middle I clipped in the soft brown custom colored by me and finished off the hairstyle by clipping in the blonde TSDhair extensions around her face. 


Makeup Artist Simone Almekias-Siegl


My inspiration started with the stunning and sexy black dress.I wanted Kristen to look really classy and fresh.
I decided for a soft smokey eye with a nude lip and dewy skin. - Simone


Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser 
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint (launching February 2017)
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Concealer (launching February 2017)

Blush: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Bronzed
Eye Shadow: Neutrogena Nourising Long Wear Eye Shadow palette in Mink Brown
Mascara: Neutrogena Healthy Length & Healthy Volume Mascara

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydration Lip Treatment (launching February 2017)
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Classic Nude

My skin prep is always to wash her face first with Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser followed by the scrub to really polish the skin and get a smooth surface to apply flawless make up. I love the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel moisturizer, as it's not greasy and it keeps the skin hydrated. I used the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum under the moisturizer today to get an even more of a nice canvas to paint her face.

I started applying the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Foundation (launches February 2017) all over her face. I don't use a lot of powder to get the dewy look after her own oils start to come out, and it gives it a fresh healthy look. Mostly I like to powder her t-zone.  I brush just a little Neutrogena Hydro Boost Concealer under her eyes to give it a highlight. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Bronzed is my go-to on her. We love this shade.

On her eyes I picked the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow palette with primer in Mink Brown. I used the darker shade in crease and outer eye and highlighted with the lightest shade on lid and under brow bone.  I lined the top and bottom of her eye with the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Pencil in Black.  I try to only line mid to outer eye to keep it more open. To finish the soft smokey eye I used the Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in black mixed with a few layers of Neutrogena Healthy Lengths mascara. We are not shy. I love giving it a ton of layers to get her lashes as big as I can.

On her lips I moisturized with the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydration Lip Treatment (launching February 2017). It also fills in the little lines around mouth to get flawless application with any lipstick over it. We used our favorite Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Classic Nude.

What gorgeous looks! What were your favorite celebrity looks for the evening? 
XOXO! Thanks for reading! :)
