FAVORITE OSCAR LOOK: Margot Robbie

rs_634x1024-150222154045-634-3margot-robbie-oscars.ls.22215

Margot Robbie was BFF Beauty Girls’ favorite look of Oscar night. We love the classic bold red lips with minimal eye makeup and very clean skin. Rouge Bunny Rouge ,one of our favorite brands for lip products and basically everything, has a look exactly like this that you can do at home. Here is a video on how to achieve this look they call ‘Serendipity’:

CLASSIC RED LIPS INSTRUCTIONS FROM ROUGE BUNNY ROUGE

Line the contour of your lips with the raspberry red Long-lasting Lip Pencil FOREVER

YOURS… ‘Marco’. Apply the Colour Burst Lipstick HUES OF ENCHANTMENT ‘Raw

Silence’, a perfect classic red that blends beautifully with your natural lip colour while adding

incredibly rich pigments. The soft, hydrating texture moves with your lips for an extended

wear and great comfort.

Review: Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo

Picture 1
I  had the opportunity try out the new Batiste Cherry during New York Fashion Week and I loved it! It was perfect for last minute touch ups before shows to add some volume to my hair as I seemed to be going all over the city for the shows this season. My hair was getting weighed down and blown all over by arctic winds on the way to the different venues! All I had to do in the bathroom was make a few quick parts on the top of my head, spray it down the middle, rub vigorously and comb it out to absorb the excess oil. My hair looked fresh and bouncy…and also smelled like cherries! I love how the can looks on my dressing table as well. It’s so cute! From the Batiste website: “Batiste Dry Shampoo is specially formulated to banish away oily roots and revitalize dull, lifeless hair. Simply spray Batiste lightly onto your hair, massage in thoroughly with your fingertips and then brush it out. The special Batiste formula absorbs dirt, grease, and product build up while giving lifeless hair a quick boost in just a few short minutes.”IMAG1215_1

Dry shampoo doesn’t have to exclusively be used for absorbing grease and creating volume in your hair though! Charlotte Ronson’s collection at NYFW was about woodlands and romanticism. Lead hair stylist, Stephanie Hayes, used Batiste Cherry to create “lived in” bun looks with lots of headbands and hair accessories on the models!1517695_621448511237712_268489497_n1898071_621435291239034_235942814_n 1621957_621450927904137_2135879320_n 1798724_621435787905651_897389555_n 1796642_621450347904195_2142639580_n

 Steps to create the look:
1. Create a defined center parting and apply Batiste Cherry to theroots and lengths to create texture. By spritzing at a distance, the look becomes lived in rather than dusty.
2. Sweep the hair into a low ponytail, keeping an inch section loose,and secure using a black velvet band. Lightly spritz with shine spray.
3. Twist the ponytail and then using a gold scallop effect band (not grips) lightly tie into a bun. Use the loose hair, originally left out,to then wrap around the bun to blend the two bands. The effect is aloose, unstructured bun that isn’t tight to the head.
4. Gently tease out hair around the front hair line and in the bun forthat soft dishevelled finish and then spritz Batiste for a soft fly-away effect.

BFF Beauty’s Covergirl Bombshell Eye Makeup Tutorial!

Covergirl Bombshell Eye Makeup Tutorial!

IMAG1386_1_1I recently tried out the Covergirl Bombshell line to make the cateye look that was popular during the recent New York Fashion Week shows. The products I used to achieve the cateyelook were:

–           COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast™ Mascara

–          COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast

–          COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner

You would be surprised what high quality these drugstore products are! The FIRST STEP was the Shine Shadow which was comparable to many of the higher end cream shadows on the market. I chose the color Ooh La Lilac which was a very subtle shimmery lavender. It can be layered to make it more purple if you are going for a more dramatic look. I applied it with my finger and rubbed it in from my lashline all the way up to my brow line. Using a q-tip, I cleaned up any excess I got over the inner and outer corners of my eye.  Available at drugstores and Walmart in six buildable, blendable, get-me-noticed shades, each shadow is easy to apply and leaves behind a creamy shimmer finish. Shades: Ice Queen, Platinum Card, Color Me Money, Gold Goddess, Copper Fling and Ooh La Lilac

The SECOND STEP was the Bombshell Intensity Liner. This is my favorite product in the Bombshell collection. This eyeliner pen really makes precision easy, and the color 008 is a deep black is perfect for the cat eye look! I used a piece of scotch tape as a guide at the outer corner of my eye, which also allowed for mistakes. If you want a more geometric shape, scotch tape really makes it easy to get a straight line and pointy tail. There are also stencils you can buy for eye liner called Beauty Benders from Beth Bender. I would love to try those next! For now, scotch tape will do!

THIRD STEP, mascara! The  COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner is definitely intense! With two layers, your eye lashes go from limp to luxurious! The base coat creates volume and the topcoat gives your lashes the deep color.  The wand comes with two different shaped brushes on each end with the basecoat and the topcoat so you really hit every lash! This is a longlasting mascara that will not crumble or smudge. I had to really work at getting it off with my favorite eye makeup remover pads, but it was worth it! I loved my cateye Covergirl Bombshell look and with these affordable products making it so easy…I just may make this my regular everyday look this season!
