Enter the New Year Glistening
December 30, 2009
I was totally stressed this time yesterday about what I would be wearing to our friends big New Year's bash this year, until I remembered a cardinal fashion rule: the very best outfits are defined by details. I put together a classic ensemble in greys, silvers and blacks and spiced it up with the following: For eyes: I moved away from my overdone smoky eyes and went for something simple with a touch of drama. Lined the inside corners of my eyes with a white liner, and a thick black liner on the outside of my eyes. Mascara to follow. A bit of glitter on my cheek bones sets of my eyes perfectly! For lips: To balance out the simplicity of my eye makeup, I chose DuWop's Pink Shimmer Lip Venom for plumpness, flushing and plenty of shimmering pink. For hair: Down and curly, I used Catwalk's Your Highness Gel Creme and Hairspray to control and hold my style. Flexible for bounce & swing with the perfect amount of shine. For nails: Here's where I had some fun- OPI's new Alice in Wonderland Mad As A Hatter polish features a crazy multi glitter sparkle to help ring in the new year with some extra glitz. For shoulders and arms: Dirty Girl's Glitter ball adds glitter to exposed skin, while Booty Parlor's Luminizing Body Butter adds a subtle sheen all over skin. Glitz and glitter in the smallest details not only make a perfect New Year's touch, but they are definitive of what runways, cosmetics lines and our favorite celebs are telling us are perfect for 2010.
Your Highness- Taking Volume to a New Level

Tigi is in the process of revamping their entire Catwalk line, and their newest edition, the Your Highness range, achieves volume like we've never seen. Instead of just selling individual products to help you achieve a certain style, the new Tigi Catwalk lines feature a concept from wash all the way to finishing spray. The formula in each product helps prepare your hair for the next, resulting in a well thought out product line that gives maximum results. To help initiate volume-lovers into the new line, Tigi released a limited edition introductory set (pictured below) that includes all of the Your Highness range gift packaged in a starter kit that costs nearly 40% less than buying them each individually. [caption id="attachment_655" align="alignright" width="234" caption="Your Highness Starter Kit"][/caption] The Catwalk Your Highness line (and the starter kits) include: Elevating Shampoo (10.14 oz) Nourishing Conditioner (8.45 oz) Thickening Gel Creme (7.27 oz) Root Boost Spray Mousse (8.1 oz) Weightless Shine Spray (5.15 oz) Firm Hold Hairspray (9 oz) Don't forget Your Highness this Christmas!
