No other makeup product seems to be as hyped as the Artis brushes.  They look like a hybrid of a spoon and a hair brush, are the softest things you’ll ever put on your face, and the makeup community is going crazy for them… although not as much for the hefty price tag…. So I know a lot of us makeup addicts are looking for a Artis Brush Dupe…

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders Review

I’m all about saving money, but sometimes a high end makeup product is just too good to resist.  That was never more true than with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders… and especially the palette.  They are absolutely heavenly….

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders Review

These powders come is a variety of shades and give you such a subtle glow it’s like you’re lit from within.

I seem to have collected almost all the shades (and my wallet is crying so I’ll have to wait on the one I’m missing).  I love some of them more than others, so I thought I would try a different one on each day so you can see how it looks on my skin tone.  Plus I’ll give a review of each so you can decided if any of the shades are right for you.

Everyday Supermodel by Molly Sims Review

I first heard about Molly Sims book Everyday Supermodel just after I started Everyday Starlet.  The names were similar and I think our concepts were too: to help everyday people feel better about themselves….

Everyday Supermodel by Molly Sims Review

Everyday Supermodel by Molly Sims Review

I’m surprised it took me so long to read this book, but I’m glad I finally did.  I didn’t know much about Molly Sims before picking up this book, other than that she was a model and she’d been on some tv shows.  So I went into this book with an open mind.

The first chapter was about food and diet.  This was by far the hardest chapter to get through.  Molly is likable, but I think she tries a little too hard to be likable at times.  I didn’t find her food insights to be anything I haven’t already heard a million times and she was a little too into detoxes for my comfort level.  I have to admit that I almost gave up on the book before I finished chapter one.

I’m glad I stuck with it.  The next chapter was all about fitness, and I found it much more interesting.

The following chapter on fashion was okay, but I don’t think Molly realizes that we don’t all have a former supermodel budget.  She had some interesting information in the skin care chapter, and her makeup tips were great basics for the makeup beginner. I also enjoyed her chapter on hair care.

The final chapter was about her life and how she got to be a successful supermodel and actress.  I don’t know if I found it as inspirational as it was meant to be, but if you’re a Molly Sims fan I’m sure you’d love it.

So would I recommend this book?

If you’re a Molly Sims fan, then you’ve probably already read it.

If you’re looking for a general lifestyle book with beginner tips on everything from food to fitness to fashion to beauty, then it could be very helpful and informative.

If you’re looking for great in-depth advice about the above topics, then I’d recommend trying some other books…

For food: Kristin Cavallari’s Balancing in Heels

For fitness inspiration: Khloe Kardashian’s Strong Looks Better Naked

Have you read Everyday Supermodel?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

If there are any makeup/beauty related books or films that you’d like me to review let me know? I’m always looking for suggestions.

The Best Bronzers for Fair Skin

Summer is here and that means one thing, we all want to get that JLo glow without getting too Donatella Versace.  So if you’re a pale gal, and want a natural bronzed glow, then I’m here to help…

Pinning is Glamorous!

The Best Bronzers for Fair Skin

Finding the perfect bronzer when you’re fair skinned, especially if you’re more cool toned than warm, can be a huge challenge.  You want to look naturally sun-kissed, but not orange.

For many years now I have been embracing my pale and skipping bronzers altogether.  But I’ve rediscovered my desire for a Summer glow.  So I decided to go through my bronzer collection and see which ones worked and which ones were a fail.

I tried some old favorites like the Physicians Formula City Glow Bronzer in New York, The Body Shop Bronzing Powder Light MatteToo Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil, and Clinique Cheek Pop Blush Pop in Nude Pop.

…And some classics like Nars Laguna Bronzer .

As well as some first impressions of newer bronzers like the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer, and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light.

Here’s what I discovered…
