Marc Jacobs Does Plus Size

Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy

Beauty comes in all sizes; not just sample sizes. There seems to be hope when high-end designers like Marc Jacobs is talking about adding a plus sizes to his line. At this point They are only talking; barely in the beginning stages. But Marc’s business partner, Robert Duffy, says making larger sizes is a go. Duffy spoke about how difficult he has it buying clothes because he’s so tall and hates the word “plus size”.

These photos are so breathtaking. Jennifer Aniston channels Barbara Striesand for Harpers Bazaar’s upcoming September issue. The photos are iconic from “Funny Girl’ and “What’s up, Doc?”  She tells the mag,

“People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don’t,… But I can pretty much find humor in anything. That is a necessary part of life. I don’t want to say laughter is healing, because it sounds corny, but it’s a release.”

Soon after the release of these photos, Barbara Striesand had only good things to say:

“I was very flattered that Jennifer Aniston chose to interpret my style with the photos in Harper’s Bazaar. She’s a delightful person, and I think she did a wonderful job. If only she had a bump on her nose.”

Ke$ha and the Blues

This past monday Ke$ha was spotten at the Casio “Shock the World” event in NYC. Perhaps she was trying to match with her Baby G blue watch. She is Casio’s latest spokesmodel after all.

I’m a fan of color but, Ke$ha looks kind of zombieIsh with that blue lipstick. Maybe a darker hue of blue and some clear gloss over it would have given it a more wearable look. What do you guys think?

    Primer for Eyes and Lips

    I recently posted on The Importance of Primer. Primer is essential in making your makeup look its best. The better the base for your makeup, the easier it will be to apply, the better it will look and the longer it will last. Other than the face, you can also apply separate primer for the eyes and lips.

    For eyes, try Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer ($16). It’s a gentle, fragrance-free formula that really makes your eye makeup stay put. It’s sheer so it won’t interfere with any color you choose to apply. Also great for sensitive skin; it’s been allergy tested by dermatologists and made without Parabens, sulfates and synthetic dyes and fragrances.

    Tip* Vaseline can be an alternative for primer. Apply it slightly on your eyelids to keep makeup in place. Just don’t use as a face primer or you’ll have the shiniest face.

    Wearing lipstick needs to be done with confidence and it doesn’t hurt to use primer. DuWop’s Prime VENOM ($20) works as a smooth base for lipstick and moisturizes as well. This primer is a 2-in-one product working as a plumper as well.

    Don’t want to splurge on primer, E.L.F. has got you covered. They’re Eye Primer/Liner Sealer is only $3 and they’re Lip Primer/Plumper is $3 as well.

    Weekend Makeover

    This weekend brought lots of change. I gave myself somewhat of a makeover, by leaving my lighter locks behind and joining the dark side. I’ll share with you guys everything I used in the makeover below:

    For my hair I used Revlon’s ColorSilk Dark Brown Color ($5). I picked it, because it was amonia free. The less harmful chemicals added to the hair, the better.

    Makeup: CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara in Black ($7.24), Bare Escentual’s Warmth ($18) for face, mark Blush in Chica ($7), and Mac Lipstick in Gaga ($14).
