Kirsten Dunst Shines with Suave at the Premiere Of FX’s “Fargo” Season 2

491795280

The Lastest from SUAVE Professionals: For those who didn’t catch the first season of Fargo, there’s a reason to tune in – and said reason is the bold and brilliant Kirsten Dunst who stunned at last night’s season two premiere.

Her daring red lip and effortless waves created the perfect hybrid of natural beauty and glam. We tapped Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist Jenny Cho to share the inspiration behind the look and her exclusive tips on how to recreate it with some of her favorite products.

Kirsten Dunst’s Look

According to Jenny, “I was inspired by her chic bob, so I wanted the main point of focus for tonight’s look be her beautiful texture, which I paired with a deep side part.”
· Apply Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Curl Defining Gel Serum to towel-dried hair, make a deep side part, and blow-dry with a diffuser until strands are completely dry.

· Relax some of the curlier pieces by misting Suave Professionals Flexible Control Finishing Hairspray onto sections and running over them lightly with a flat iron.

Stylist Tip: Uneven texture is the key to this look. Be mindful that you are relaxing the curlier pieces and not flat ironing to make them straight.

· Lastly, refresh hair with a burst of Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Weightless Dry Shampoo and then lock in the final look with a blast of hairspray.
All of the above mentioned products range from $2.69 to $4.99 at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.

It’s so much fun looking pretty with Skinn Cosmetics

 

IMG_1506

**Skinn Cosmetics has certainly outdone themselves when it comes to their Cosmetics line. My daughter and I recently snagged some foundation, lipstick and primer and they are amazing. The Full Pigment Lipstick in Nudist (also available in Rusted Red) is all mine. My daughter knows I am a lipstick and lip gloss queen and she wasn’t going to get her hands on it. The color I chose is a perfect color for fall. Not only is the color beautiful, it features an inner core infused with Argan and Rosehip Oil which allows your lips to remain moisturized while sporting a fabulous color. It’s the best of both world where your lips are concerned.

unnamedMy daughter snagged the Eyeshadow Primer and Setting Veil. She has an incredible talent for combining the right colors to her eyes making them look glamorous all day long. The Primer/Setting Veil allows her to apply  eye make-up and have it last throughout the day. This is a great feature for a girl who is busy all day long. Eyeshadow Primer and Setting Veil is infused with beneficial ingredients like antioxidant-rich Grape Seed Oil, Ginseng Extract, and Vitamins A, C, and E.

First, Adrienne applies the silky eyeshadow primer to her lids allowing for a smooth finish and to hide any discolorations. Next, she apply her favorite eye shadow colors and finally, with a Blending Brush (Skinn carries a blending brush that works like a charm) she lightly applies the translucent setting veil.   The final result, an amazing look that will last and last.

 

unnamed

Full Coverage Foundation has 5 shades (Medium, Fair, Light, Deep and Tawny) which should accommodate most skin tones. This is Skinn’s first-ever Plasma Fusion Full Coverage Foundation stick and the fist stick foundation I have tried.

The stick offers the convenience of not worrying about spillage from power or liquid foundations when in your cosmetic bag. The stick is also perfect for touch ups, no mess involved.  Full Coverage Foundation certainly offers full coverage and the lightweight formula, vanishes into your skin , you won’t even feel it.  If you have long nails than a foundation stick is a must have especially if you blend with your finger tips. Simply dab the foundation and blend with the top of your fingers.

Like the lipstick, the foundation stick has a core that contains Vitaman C for brightening, Hyaluronic Acid for hydration  a Peptide blend for anti-aging effects as well as Grape Seed, Argan and Rosehip Oils for antioxidant and skin conditioning benefits.  Check out Skinn Cosmetics new Fall line aned snag a few items for yourself. Skinn Cosmetics can be purchased at www.skinn.com and on EVINE Live.

**Skinn Cosmetics is a line of premium skincare and color cosmetic formulas developed by professional makeup artist Dimitri James. Skinn formulates and manufactures all of its own products, using highly active, concentrated natural ingredients and avoiding excess water, fillers or packaging. From concept to compact, from brainstorm to bottle, every product worthy of the Skinn name comes to life under one roof, and under James’ watchful eye.

Holistic Care for your Hair from Maple Holistics

argan-shampoo1-250x250

My latest find in Hair Care is from Maple Holistics. Maple Holistics is a homeopathic solution for your hair and it’s wonderful! I love this shampoo; it’s gentle on my hair leaving it soft and bouncy. I especially love knowing that this shampoo offers everything that is healthy and natural for my hair.

Maple Holistics Argan Shampoo contains some extremely effective oils that will help your hair and scalp maintain its health.  Argan Oil, also known as Moroccan Oil is one of the rarest oils in the world. I use many products with Moroccan oil and I don’t ever shy away from a beauty product containing it. Argan Oil contains Vitamin E, Carotene, and essential fatty acids…all good stuff!

Other ingredients include, Peach Kernel (moisturizes, and great for sensitive skin), Avocado (containing vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E),  Camellia Seed (conditioning and rejuvenating), Almond Oli (moisturizing and soothing), Jojoba and Botanical (Keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins, which contribute to the composition of hair. As it is essential to hair’s formation, insufficient quantities of keratin may be a contributing factor to having frizzy and unmanageable hair. This naturally derived ingredient helps to replenish the ideal keratin content for strong, durable hair)”. Of course, there are the fragrances of Honey and Vanilla. What’s not to love about this healthy and natural Shampoo.

Maple Holistics Silk18 Natural Conditioner is equally beneficial.  It is a great compliment to the Argan Shampoo providing moisture to your hair and the results? Silky bouncy and beautifully shiny hair. I have curly hair, and my curls have definition and bounce and without frizz at all, it’s perfect! Silk18 Natural Conditioner contains Silk Amino Acids, “Eighteen naturally-derived (literally extracted during the silkworms process of creating silk) silk amino acids prompts an assortment of hair and scalp benefits. Some of these benefits include strengthened hair fibers and natural restoration for flawless hair health. Also, the high molecular weight of the silk amino acids results in the formation of a substantive film to increase scalp permeability. Includes L-Alanine, Glycine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Threonine, and more.”

Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, and Green Tea are also contained in the conditioner that help promote moisture to dry hair to dry and delicate hair strands. Shea butter contains vitamins A and E, and is aa natural moisturizer. Aloe Vera is the conditioning agent, and Green Tea strengthens hair roots, activating hair follicles promoting hair growth. Other beneficial ingredients include Pomegranate, Hibiscus and Sea Buckthorn. Silk 18 even aids in preventing problems like dandruff,split ends, and premature graying.

Maple Holistics Silk18 Natural Conditioner has an amazing scent of vanilla, after all it does contain 100% natural vanilla, and the scent stays in your hair even after drying. View the complete line of hair, body and skincare at  mapleholistics
