hudabeauty.com: Body Bling–What I Can’t Leave the House Without!

Ok, I have a huge secret to confess! This might actually sound funny, but a few weeks ago when I launched Saks’ Beauty Week, I got a lot of compliments on my legs! No, not because I have great legs, but on the color and skin tone! If you know me well, you know I NEVER leave the house without using Body Bling from Scott Barnes! I was soooo happy to see it at the West LA Boutique this Saturday, that I knew I had to write about it!

Huda’s Tip: Now, I want to let you guys know how I use it! First of all, I should probably start by saying I DON’T have flawless legs! I’m actually really prone to ingrown hairs, which sucks! Even though I don’t wax, I have to scrub like crazy, or I get ingrown hairs growing left and right like wildfire! They don’t exactly leave a pretty mark behind, so I have to cover that up! Ok, I actually mix a drop of foundation with a good amount of Body Bling, when I apply this to my legs it gives my skin the most beautiful tone and color! It looks perfectly even toned and flawless! Ever wonder how celebrities look perfect head-to-toe? Now you know! I literally do this for every bride I do (I do this for their decolletage and back)! For the legs, I recommend using the Original (which is quite bronze), for the decolletage, I like the Platinum since it is more pearly toned!

beautylish.com: SCOTT BARNES’ TOP TRENDS FOR SPRING

Celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes works with some of the most beautiful women in the world on a daily basis. Glamour queens such as Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Gwyneth Paltrow flock to him for the latest and greatest in makeup trends. So what’s the makeup guru’s forecast for spring? We spoke with Scott to discover which trend you (and the stars!) need to try when the warmer weather hits.

refinery29.com: Snoop In The Medicine Cabinets Of 5 Beauty Gurus

Sure, we all feel enormous pressure to keep up appearances in our sometimes too-vain town. But can you imagine how stressful it would be if your livelihood depended on looking uber-attractive 24/7? We’re not talking model-slash-actresses here—we mean the beauty experts we trust implicitly to get our tresses and skin in tip-top shape. After all, if their pro ducks aren’t in a row, how can we envision them morphing us into wannabe glamour queens?

In this industry, seeing is believing, so we’ve scouted out five local beauty aces, who let us snoop around their bathrooms and snap the secret products lurking inside each of their arsenals. Behold, the lotion- and potion-filled cabinets of L.A.’s top aestheticians, hair stylists, and makeup wunderkinds, and find out what’s cookin’ on these good-lookin’ gurus’ shelves.

Scott Barnes, THE Makeup Artist

Well, it's not like he really needs an introduction, but we'll give any of you you who missed the last decade's beauty boat the scoop. Scott started out as a Parsons-trained painter (good sign, right?), cut his teeth assisting on editorial shoots, then meteorically rose to fame, working with renowned superstars like Scavullo, Liebovitz, and Demarchelier.

The list of celebs he's painted faces for could go on forever (Kate Hudson, Nicole Richie, Mary J. Blige, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Celine Dion to give a glimpse), but he was J. Lo's main makeup squeeze for eons, with his look for her famously labeled "The Glow."

If there's anyone we'd trust in all of Hollywood to give us good face, c'est Scott!

NYTimes.com: The Body Whisperer

One of the West Coast’s best-kept beauty secrets, the body “contourier” Megan Simon uses endermologie, sunless airbrush tanning, electrical currents, pet products and plain old good advice to make her celebrity clientele look slim, trim and cellulite-free.

Trade secrets Besides attacking clients’ cellulite with her endermologie machine, Simon makes their bodies look lithe by spraying an extra layer of sunless tan on thighs, sides of the waist and backs of the arms. An extra application around the jawline helps mask a double chin. Another useful illusion: Scott Barnes’s Body Bling in Original applied all over, with the Platinum shade on the fronts of the legs to streamline. She swipes Nars Illuminator in Copacabana on the bridge of the nose and across the forehead to create the look of a perfect nose. For sunless touch-ups, she recommends SunFx White Out.

bellasugar.com: CHERYL BURKE TALKS DWTS, TANS, AND MORE

Anyone who watches Dancing With The Stars knows how easily Cheryl Burke moves around a ballroom. This season, she's done the salsa, Argentine tango, cha-cha-cha, and more with hunky Cuban actor William Levy. In between tapings, the dancer and Veet spokeswoman revealed what it takes to get ready before and after she hits the floor. "When I'm not performing, I keep it simple," she says of her beauty regimen. Here, she shares her beauty routine on- and off-camera.

BellaSugar: What's it like to get ready before Dancing With the Stars?
The ballroom look is pretty intense, but we have an unbelievable team. I usually spend about four hours in hair and makeup — covering everything from tanning to fake lashes to nails — before I even get started on wardrobe.

BS: Dancing With the Stars is known for featuring shimmering airbrush tans. Do you have any tips or tricks for looking fresh in-between applications, when they tend to get blotchy?
I keep my skin moisturized, which really helps my tans last. I swear by Brown Buns Airbrush Spray Tans. Fun insider beauty secret I picked up as the Veet spokeswoman: their wax strips give the perfect silky canvas for a smooth spray tan application. Just be sure to wait 24 hours after waxing before getting a spray tan.

BS: Dancing is a great workout. What are your favorite sweat-proof makeup, hair, and body products?
I’m pretty low-maintenance when it comes to makeup. I like to keep it simple when I’m rehearsing, but when it’s show time, waterproof mascara and foundation are a must. I always use Scott Barnes Body Bling, Make Up For Ever, Nars, and Dior.

prettygossip.com: Body Bling- Tinted Body Moisturizer

With spring and summer right around the corner, I wondered how I would deal with my pasty white legs this year. In the past, I’ve tried self tanners and while they did “tan” my legs, I was constantly worried about streaks, color wearing off, and not being able to control the depth of the tan. Luckily for me and my legs, I’ve discovered Body Bling! Body Bling is a tinted body moisturizer that leaves your skin with a natural glowing tan. Best part: No streaks or unpleasant self-tanner odor! Just leaves a beautiful natural color, shimmer and glow!



“Body Bling is the #1 bronzer used by beauty professionals and consumers around the globe. A must-have in everyone’s beauty arsenal, this sunless tanning illuminator gives everyone sexy, beautiful, glowing skin…without the risk of sun damage. Body Bling makes it easy to look “lit from within” – every day, all year long!” ($42 for 4 oz. Available at ScottBarnes.com, Henri Bendel, Fred Segal, Kitson and Dillard’s)

Body Bling is available in 2 color: Original (left) and Platinum (right).



Original looks very dark (as shown in swatch above), but it applies easily and absorbs quickly to give a natural sun kissed glow. The color is build-able, so if you’re looking for a deeper tan, just apply more coats of the lotion. NO worries about streaks, looking too unnaturally dark, or unpredictable fading! With Body Bling, you apply when you want the color and wash off when you don’t. Also, unlike self tanners… the color washes easily off your hands after application… and legs when you’re ready of course!



While the Original is all about a natural tan, Platinum is all about providing a shimmery champagne glow. I think it’s perfect for the arms, shoulders, cheeks, and anywhere you want to highlight. My camera doesn’t do justice to the shimmer that Platinum gives…



Do I recommend this product? YES. If I had to choose between the two… I’d get Original. Why? I love being able to fake a tan in less than 2 minutes and not worry about it being streaky or unnaturally orange/dark. Also, at the end of the day… I can just wash it off. You get the BLING without the commitment!!! Just perfect.

Until next time, stay pretty and glowing… inside and out.

beautyhigh.com: Scott Barnes Tells Us How-To Glow Like J.Lo

Scott Barnes, celebrity makeup artist and creator of Body Bling, knows the secret to getting the inner glow that we all envy. His must-have tinted moisturizer is the key behind the glowing skin of celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. We got Scott to tell us his tips for glowing this winter: from moisturizing to contouring, he spills everything we’ll need to know to look red carpet ready this holiday!

What is the best way to get a beautiful glow in the winter when so many people have trouble with dry skin?

Body Bling! It has a moisturizing base to it – it’s actually treatment product – so it absorbs into your skin leaving a really beautiful and moisturizing shimmer. It helps moisturize as it applies color and melts into your skin!

When contouring, what is the most important thing to remember?

Firstly, it’s important to find your correct foundation color that perfectly matches your skin tone (I love Dior and Chanel foundations). When contouring with bronzer, it’s important to work from the outside in to create a halo effect, that beautiful “lit from within” glow. The last thing you want to do is add dark bronzer under your eyes (or up to the side of your nose) where your skin is already darker, and definitely avoid applying bronzer to the creases around your mouth and eyes, as that will make you look older. I love Guerlain’s bronzing powders the key is to find a shade that’s one shade darker than your skin.

What are your top beauty tips?

An eyelash curler is the most important thing, it makes your eyes look open. I also always use Naphcon A eye drops (available at your local drugstore), as they make your eyes look bright and white and rested. With a little mascara, eyelash curler and eye drops, you’ll be gorgeous.

When it comes to your product, Body Bling, how do the formulas differ forbrunettesand blondes?

Blondes are better served with Body Bling Platinum, because it gives you a lot of shimmer and glow without too much bronze pigment (fans include Madonna and Gwen Stefani). If you want a little more color, mix with the Original Body Bling to tailor your own color.

The Original is best for brunettes, African Americans and darker skin it livens up that warm skin tone and makes it look alive, shimmery and like a golden blond goddess.

In full summer, everyone can use the Original Body Bling.

What is your number one recommendation when it comes to beauty tips for the holidays and going from day to night?

For day to night, it’s really great to keep it simple: berry lips and a flushed cheek mimics what happens naturally in the cold. Keep a more naked eye.

My #1 beauty tip for holidays is to pick a feature and play it up! Less is more. Take your lip down with a stronger eye, or do a stronger eye with a naked lip. But don’t forget to wear your lashes – they’re the best holiday accessory!

Remember, makeup is an accessory, don’t overdue it or try too many looks at once, or you’ll look like a walking Trend Report.

We know the stylish set in Chicago likes to spend time at the lake once the weather warms, but it’s important to wear sun protection and get your “glow” without the sun!

As Scott says, when it comes to makeup, “why stop at your face?”. Use uber-moisturizingBody Bling on your shoulders, arms, legs, décolletage and more for a flawless look from head to toe. It’s also great for masking self-tanning streaks or mistakes, covering flaws and – we swear – instantly toning and slimming arms and legs.

GET THE LOOK: MELISSA LEO

When the actress Melissa Leo changed makeup artists – she changed her look dramatically. In the photo on the right, her new makeup artist, Scott Barnes, gave the actress a fresh new glam look. According to Barnes, “Its all about the eyes, the cheek, a little lip and the body.” Here’s what he used to get the look:

Eyes: First Barnes used Skin Authority’s Dramatic Eye Lift and Moisturizing Lift Cream to prime Leo’s under-eye area. Then he used his soon-to-be-released Party Proof Mascara. ”Its more mascara than anything else,” he says.

Foundation: La Mer’s Treatment Creme Foundation in Creme gave Leo her flawless complexion.

Blush: Kevyn Aucoin’s The Creamy Moist Glow in Euphoria provides Leo with a dewy peachy glow.

Lips: To give Leo a monochromatic-neutral sexy pout, coined “the naked lip,” Barnes used his soon-to-be-released Lip Slicks.

Body: Body Bling in Platinum is Barnes’ signature product to give Leo that “sun-kissed” skin.

Bad Knees to Sexy Knees

When the term "cankles" hit the media -- and gyms -- by storm two years ago, it left many women wondering: Do I have chubby ankles? It wasn't enough that we had to worry about muffin tops, flabby arms and larger-than-we'd-like derrieres. In an ever-increasingly body-conscious society, it's not surprising -- and even somewhat expected -- that we continue to pick apart those areas of our bodies we deem sub-stellar.

And that includes knees.

Knees, like ankles, may not be at the top of everyone's Sexy Body Parts list, but if a woman considers them unattractive, it's enough to alter the way she dresses -- and even the way she feels about herself.

And while there is not an official term (like cankles) for less-than-svelte knees, do we really have to resort to a life void of flirty miniskirts and sexy shorts?

Of course not!

First of all, it's important to realize that our bodies are perfect and beautiful just the way they are. Our knees, in particular, allow us to run, jump, climb, squat and move throughout our days. Without them, we would be in serious trouble. So, before condemning your knees for the way they look, send them some gratitude. Some good loving.

For those looking for a little help with their appearance, Houston dermatologist Dr. Paul Friedman said with shorter hemlines and bare legs being fashionable, more and more women are approaching a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon. In fact, knees account for approximately 10 percent of his body-contouring patients today.

While the reasons vary, Friedman said many women are concerned about excess fatty tissue in their knees, especially over the inner knee, over the kneecap and above the knee. Other patients want to rid the sagging skin that overlies the front of their knees and thighs. And still others come in with distinct scars or an increased amount of pigmentation across their knees (both of which typically follow some sort of trauma).

"Causes are multifactorial," said Friedman. "Genetics, diet and lifestyle all can play a role. However, we do see many thin, athletic patients that still have small deposits of fat on their knees."

Celebrity trainer and USANA spokeswoman Kathy Kaehler said she's had clients who want to tighten up their knees because they just don't like how they look. "They hate how it determines what they wear or how they think people's eyes go to their knees. I know it gives them a reason to wear only pants," she said.

Kaehler said knee haters specifically gripe about the skin, the bumps and the lines that loose skin can make. "It also pulls more skin on the inside of the knee that makes a bulge."

And while Kaehler agrees that saggy knees can be attributed to genetics, much of the time she believes it's due to underconditioned quadriceps and weight gain, which is good news -- meaning, there is something we can do about it.

Gyms and dermatology offices are not the only places that hear complaints about saggy, chubby or ugly knees.

Celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes said this is a common beef among his clients, too. "Women always complain to me that there is some body part they don't like. They always ask me how to fix it."

When a woman is unhappy or self-conscious about the way her knees look, not surprisingly, she covers them up. Longer skirts, pants and tights are often used to camouflage these seemingly imperfections.

"I think all women are concerned with their legs in general, and of course, no one wants ugly knees," said Barnes. "I see women all the time looking for additional ways to slim or slenderize their legs. And that includes knees that are soft and delicate."

So if you find yourself knee high in reasons why you don't like the way your knees look, take a look at the top tips from these experts on how to beautify and show them off:


Squat for lust-worthy knees. Photo: Getty

Exercise
There may not be any knee-specific classes at the gym (remember the cankle-busting workouts Gold's Gym offered?), yet cardiovascular and strength-training exercises can still be your best bet.

A regular regimen of exercises like power walking, running, jumping rope, stair climbing and other heart-pumping activities can burn calories and, thus, eliminate fat. Be forewarned though, it is not possible to spot-reduce, so any exercises you engage in will burn fat throughout the body, not just the knee area.

Strength-building exercises, like squats, lunges and leg lifts are ideal for toning the legs. The more toned they are, the less likely your knees will droop. Kaehler advises clients to complete one set of 12 reps of lunges, squats and side lunges with squats. She then has them build up to two sets and eventually adds a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand for additional strengthening.

Above all, consuming a healthy diet and getting back to your ideal body weight is the most important thing, according to Kaehler, who noted that added weight is likely to manifest around the knees.

Beauty Products
If women could only use one beauty product, Barnes said it should be Body Bling.

"Its my number one beauty favorite among celebrities and women around the world," he explained. "It moisturizes and slenderizes your legs and gives them a healthy glow while making you look tan without the harmful effects of the sun."

Another helpful tip is to use a good body moisturizer on your legs daily like La Mer or La Prairie.

And don't forgo an occasional scrub to shed dead skin. Using a lemon-and-sea-salt mixture is a great and inexpensive way to soften your knees.

"To me, all women have a beauty about them -- it's just about bringing it out," added Barnes.

Style Options
No matter what your knees look like, all women look fantastic in a flirty miniskirt. Just make sure it's not too tight, so it can move with your legs when you walk. Also, high heels are always flattering to your gams, making them appear sexy and gorgeous -- but avoid shoes with an ankle strap as they can make your legs appear shorter. And finally, if you're still too self-conscious for a mini, try a long dress with a slit in the front to hint at your sexy legs!

Nonsurgical Treatments
When chubby or sagging knees don't respond to proper diet and exercise, some women take further steps.

Body wraps, while only temporary, can provide a short-term fix to reducing excess water or swelling around the knees.

Friedman believes that patients can see better results from sagging skin with radiofrequency treatments such as Thermage or Excelis, which work by stimulating collagen production to help tighten the skin.

"We also have patients with scars over the knees," said Friedman. "The appearance of these scars can be improved with lasers such as a pulsed dye laser or fractionated lasers such as Fraxel or Affirm. We have also seen improvement in the appearance of sunken scars following injections with fillers such as injectable hyaluronic acid or poly-L-lactic acid."

If patients experience increased pigmentation across the knees, it can be the result of repetitive micro-trauma to the skin of the knees. In this case, reducing any trauma along plus a prescription topical skin-lightening cream, such as one with hydroquinone, can be beneficial.

Surgical Options
For women who want a more extreme treatment to improve the appearance of their knees, Friedman said liposuction will remove excess fatty tissue. With expanding technology in the medical field, small liposuction instruments can now be used to treat the knees. However, he warns that if patients are concerned about the appearance on the top of the knee, where it joins the thigh, extra care must be taken. The fatty tissue in this part of the knee supports the muscles on the front of the thigh, so taking too much fat out of this area removes the support of the thigh muscles, causing the front of the thigh to sag downward.

Of course, not everyone agrees that any of these procedures -- especially the surgical ones -- are necessary.

"We are all too body conscious," stated Kaehler. "If we paid more attention to what our bodies can do physically and not just how they look, we might find more happiness and less stress from focusing on something that is really quite insignificant."

Avoid These Common Blush Mistakes

A celebrity makeup artist shares his tips for applying blush flawlessly. Here, get the dos and don'ts for applying blush. By Dr. Jessica Wu


Photo Credits: (left) Courtesy of Scott Barnes; (right) Getty Images
My friend Scott Barnes, a celebrity makeup artist, was responsible for Melissa Leo’s glamorous, glowing look when she accepted the Golden Globe award for best supporting actress for her work in The Fighter. Here she is in the photo (on the left side) looking gorgeous this year, with flattering makeup and blush (and not a bit of plastic surgery), compared with her look a year ago. For those of you who want to be extra-gorgeous on Valentine’s Day (or any day), proper blush is key. According to Scott, these are the three most common blush mistakes, and how to avoid them:

Wrong amount. Use too much and you’ll look like you belong in the circus — or like Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Instead, remember the original intent of blush — to make you look aroused (as if you’re ready to have sex or you just had sex). The goal should be to look naturally and gently flushed, not painted.

Wrong color. The wrong blush color can make your complexion muddy. Choose the right one and your skin will instantly look brighter. If you have fair, rosy skin, choose cool, blue-toned pinks. You can even get away with slightly frosted pink blush. If you have olive skin with golden undertones, skip the cool pinks, which will look gray or muddy on your skin. Instead, stick to warm honey or peach tones to complement your skin. If your skin is darker, choose richer, deeper wines and burgundies.

Wrong placement. Don’t use blush under your cheekbones to contour. Instead, put it on the apples of your cheeks. To find your apples, smile big; they're the part of your cheeks that go up when you smile (under your eyes). If you don’t have much in the cheekbone department, you can place the blush a bit higher, up along the cheekbones.

The man that makes Melissa Leo gorgeous

One of this year's biggest breakout actresses is The Fighter's Melissa Leo, who has had quite an impressive makeover. The man responsible for her stunning transformation into a polished leading lady is makeup maestro Scott Barnes. Barnes helped Melissa look her best when she won this year's Golden Globe for best supporting actress and reveals to In Touch, "I wanted to make her feel as beautiful on the outside as she makes everyone feel on the inside with her work." One of Barnes' secrets for making the Oscar nominee shine was using his own makeup line, Scott Barnes, which included Bronzer in St. Tropez and Souffle Foundation. Fans of Hollywood's favorite makeup artist can look forward to his new line that will be released later this year, but in the meantime, his Body Bling is sold on scottbarnes.com.

Body Beauty Tricks to Look Better in Shorts

As this summer's temperatures steadily rise, so do the hemlines on shorts.

And while a recent midsummer night's stroll had us gasping at the sheer amount of pantslessness that surrounded us, and contemplating the fine line between shorts and skivvies, it also had us blessing our lucky stars for the beauty experts that could arm us with information to help ourselves, and our readers, prep for these shortest of short situations.

Whether you're self-conscious about having extremely pale legs, want to conceal spider veins, dark spots, and cellulite, choose the right hair removal treatment, or find a nail polish that will elongate your legs, our spot-on expert advice will help you get a leg up on looking fabulous in shorts.

There are not too many things in the world that rub us the wrong way more than ingrown hairs. With our legs in desperate need of a little TLC, waxing guru Paz Stark recommends dry exfoliating the day after getting waxed to maintain smooth skin.

"I'm obsessed with waxing, so that's why I opened up the waxing studio. I got the best wax and the best aestheticians, but what I learned shortly after opening was key and didn't require money," she says.

Using a loofah or the Stark Exfoliating Mitt -- which is made out of natural agave fiber and does not have a back that will trap bacteria -- rough polish your legs in circular motions to remove the top layer of skin so that your hair doesn't get trapped.

"If you do it once a day before getting into the shower you will really see the results. And if you're already experiencing bumps and ingrown hairs, start doing it!"

Be sure to follow up exfoliating with a hydrating post-treatment like Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Body Serum which instantly softens and smooths skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and gradually creates a firmer appearance.

Golden, bronze skin is what everyone is in search of. But with all the health risks linked to lying out in the sun (not to mention the tanning tax), women are reaching for bottles of bronzer that do double-duty like Scott Barnes Body Bling and Jemma Kidd Show Stopper.

"I created it to be a moisturizer with a heavily-tinted color, so the results are instantaneous," says celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes. "You're getting a treatment and it's concealing at the same time. Who doesn't want that?"

If you have fair skin, use Body Bling in Platinum for more of a gradual glow. And if you have medium to dark skin, go straight for the Original. But if you want to amp up your "tan," Barnes suggests mixing his bronzers to accentuate your skin tone as your complexion changes throughout the summer months.

"Let's take the complication out of it all," he says. "Just slap it on and go!"

Baring skin in warm weather can be tricky, but fashion-favorite makeup artist Romero Jennings believes that anyone can feel confident if they know the right tricks. While he's used to prettying up models and stars that are practically flawless, cellulite, veins, bruises, discoloration, and stretch marks are universal concerns he tackles with his brushes.

For an illuminating glow that reduces the appearance of your "flaws," you'd want to recreate Jennings' "Royal Celebrity Red Carpet Leg."

With skin that's moisturized, conceal with Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and warm up the leg with matte Bronzing Powder. Add a bronzer with metallic properties for a touch of shimmer -- highlighting the shin and knee areas of the leg. And for maximum shine, use Mineralize Skinfinish.

The same process works on fair skin, too, says Jennings. Choose a lighter toned bronzer and shimmer instead.

And while you're flaunting your hot legs, don't forget about your toes!

If you want to add a few inches to your height, celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann suggests painting on a neutral nail polish that matches your skin tone like Fashion or No More Drama. "In the same way that nude shoes elongate your legs, a nude nail color can have the same effect."

Maintain your pedicure from the sun's rays by using a topcoat with a UV inhibitor that will prevent polish from turning colors. Lippmann also recommends protecting your cuticle's by smoothing on moisturizer to keep feet hydrated and stop nail breakage. And be sure to address toes marked with corns or discoloration by gently brushing on a concealer like PrettyToes Fade-n-Cover.

Brush up on these tricks of the trade to help you rock your locks all summer long!

American Salon - Makeup Master

American_Salon-May_2010Celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes, whose work has graced the famous faces of Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian, is sharing his secrets in the new book, About Face (Fair Winds Press, 2010). In this much-anticipated tome, Barnes highlights famous celebrity transformations and real women makeovers, along with offering tips on how to enhance a woman's best features and create both classic and on-trend looks. It's the perfect go-to resource for makeup artists looking to be inspired and sharpen their skills. --L.M.

ELLE BEAUTY OBSESSION

Elle-May2010Rejoice: The days of orange self-tanner, à la La Lohan, are over. "It's no longer about appearing like you're been baking in the sun," says St. Tropez tanning guru Fiona Locke, who has pointed a spray-tan nozzle at many Dancing With the Stars hopefuls. "People want to have a radiant glow that seems like it comes from within." To achieve natural-looking color, prep skin by exfoliating away any dead cells that might impede an even application, and always pay attention to the details: "If you're working with a spray, start at the bottom and work your way up so that there won't be any excess at your feet," Locke says. If you want to appear both radiant and buff, you can go back over and contour with a bronzing powder or a deeper shade of self-tanner. "I call it the flex-and-tone approach," Locke says. "Stand on your tip-toes, flex your arms, and watch where the shadows below the muscles appear -- that's where you want to add more color." This trick can also be used by women with naturally dark skin to sculpt their limbs: Although it may seem counterintuitive, bronzers "give a gorgeous luster to African-American skin," says makeup artist Scott Barnes, whose Body Bling is beloved by everyone from J.Lo to Beyoncé. As a finishing touch, apply an illuminator or pearlescent powder to the clavicles, the top of the shoulders, and down the front of the shins. "The shimmery highlights make the body appear longer and leaner," Barnes says.

InStyle - Beauty Q&A

InStyle-May2010Q: I've heard that you can use makeup to make legs look slimmer. How?

A: "Legs look leaner and more toned when they have a bit of a glow," says N.Y.C. makeup artist Linda Hay, who suggests exfoliating weekly for a smooth base. A gradual tanner can add a hint of color over time, but if you want instant results, go with bronzing lotion. Apply in circular motion to prevent streaking. To create the illusion of slimmer legs, dab a touch of highlighter down the center of each leg, blending well to ensure a natural effect.

Beauty guru behind J.Lo's glow

How did Jennifer Lopez get her ``J.Lo Glow?'' Ask Scott Barnes. He invented it. The celebrity makeup artist and author of About Face, Amazing Transformations Using Secrets of the Top Celebrity Makeup Artist (Fair Winds/Quayside, $24.99) has been working with the actress for 11 years, most recently on The Back-up Plan. We gabbed with the 42-year-old Detroit native:

What is the `J.Lo Glow?'

``Essentially, it's a monochromatic palette, with glossy, nude lips and dewy skin. It makes you look youthful no matter your age. It's looking lit from within.''

How did you achieve Lopez's look in her new movie?

``Well, she's already gorgeous. She's Jennifer Lopez, for God's sake. Her character had money but was a free spirit, a pet shop owner, so I made her kind of hip, modern, clean, pretty. A little more glamorous than a plain Jane that lives next door.''

Tell us about the book.

``A large part of it focuses on makeovers of real women, ages 19 to 64, transforming the everyday woman into a movie star, like they did the old days, sending the actresses to Max Factor.''

What is the message?

``It's about the power of beauty. It's one thing to make yourself up for vanity's sake and quite another when your look can affect the outcomes of lives around you, using your beauty to be heard.''

Can you give an example?

``The [biblical] Book of Esther. She becomes queen of Persia because of her grooming and wound up leading an entire race of people. It doesn't get more significant than that.''

Anyone in modern day?

``Nancy Pelosi is always put together very well. If a beautiful woman is talking you're more apt to listen.''

So unattractive women won't be listened to?

``The bra-burning is passe? -- not that it's not important or relevant. But what better power than to be gorgeous? That's why society listens to celebrities and why politics has gotten so heavily into Hollywood. Like, it wasn't about the inauguration, it was more about a who's who.''

Beside Lopez, whom do you consider gorgeous and powerful?

``I love Kim Kardashian. Her face is freakishly symmetrical. Very rarely do I see that. She has a great skin, a great smile. Very charming.''

What is the best makeup advice you can give South Florida women?

``Protect yourself from the sun. Fake a tan. Tanning beds are shaped like coffins for a reason.''

-- MADELEINE MARR

Meet Scott Barnes from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Books & Books Bal Harbour Shops and at Silvia Tcherassi Atelier, 4101 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables, 6-8 p.m. Friday.

Get the JLo Glow - Body Bling Tanning Illuminator by Scott Barnes

blingBy Carol Hilker

Ever wonder where Jennifer Lopez gets her perfect tan?

From a bottle of course.

Self-tanners are now a staple when it comes to a good beauty regime for any ghostly, pale lady out there. It is just about the only way to safely get a great tan without damaging your skin with harmful UV rays.

The one common complaint when it comes to faking a tan is that it can streak or sometimes, depending on your skin tone, make you appear to be orange (think Oompa Loompa). I personally, have issues with never washing the self-tanner completely off of my hands. I think anyone that has ever used a self-tanner can attest to having had a streaky mess on their hands, feet or knees...

Many beauty companies have come to the rescue by developing a way to get color with even less of a commitment. Companies like Nars, LORAC and Napoleon Perdis have released tanning illuminators and bronzing mousses that give you an amazing glow...just until you wash it off.

One of the coolest is the Scott Barnes Body Bling. Personally, I am kind of over J-Lo, but I have to admit that I have been jealous of her tan since the late 90’s.

Scott Barnes is the man behind creating gorgeous looks for his numerous celebrity clients, however the iconic looks he created for Jennifer Lopez started a cosmetics revolution and gave birth to a new look coined “the glow” – monochromatic, with bronzed skin and pale lips –that dewy, Greek goddess look.

This signature look became known as “lit from within” and started a trend among many cosmetic companies who launched products like Nars blush in Orgasam, and brought back nude lips.

Scott Barnes took matters into his own hand and launched the world famous shimmering bronzer, Body Bling. Body Bling is perfect for spring and summer body prep – available in two editions, Original and Platinum. The wildly popular sunless tanning illuminator gives everyone the Hollywood look of sexy, beautiful, glowing skin...without the risk of sun damage, or streaks.

To use: “Put it on the body like a moisturizer to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite, spider veins, sun damage, etc. The light from the Body Bling attracts the eye, making legs, arms – everywhere! – appear slicker and slimmer. I always remind clients to apply it liberally to give ample coverage and effect,” says Scott.

"I suggest each look for her based on the event she'll be attending, and I certainly pay attention to her wardrobe and accessories, too."

Scott's expertise is invaluable to Jennifer, 40, because he introduced her to contouring - it's the secret to a flawless face for the singer and so many other stars. "Everybody has different places you want to highlight and take away from," she told In Touch at the launch of Scott's new book, About Face. In addition to working his magic with his favorite products, Jennifer says the best advice he has given her has been to get plenty of beauty rest - and stay out of the the sun!

Fashion's 50 most fascinating: The NYers who make this $10B industry work - and make us look good

Fashion Week kicks off this morning with BCBG Max Azria's Fall collection but so much of the excitement surrounding the $10 billion industry's biggest event is taking place outside the Bryant Park tents.

Proof the style spectacular is starting to loosen its exclusivity? Designers like Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs are, for the first time ever, broadcasting their shows online. Naomi Campbell opened up tomorrow's Fashion for Haiti runway show to the paying public (it's sold out). And even Anna Wintour is letting her right hand man Andre Leon Talley serve as judge on "America's Next Top Model."

Since the fashion industry in NY employs 175,000 regular folk to get these clothes on racks and into shoppers' hands, letting everybody in on the behind-the-scenes magic is more important now than ever.

22. SCOTT BARNES, makeup artist Makeup guru Barnes, who's groomed New Yorkers from Gwyneth to Beyoncé, is, of course, best known for giving J.Lo her signature "Glow" — and anyone can replicate the healthy but glammy vibe of bronzed skin and pale lips, thanks to products like his best- selling Body Bling bronzer.

Jennifer Lopez's face has been featured on the cover of a beauty book. The stunning actress was snapped especially for make-up artist Scott Barnes' new book 'About Face' which is based on how to transform yourself and look like a film star. Jennifer, 40, has worked with the beauty mogul for over 10 years and he even travelled with her when she worked on her latest movie, 'The Back-Up Plan'. His new book will be launched in two versions - one for the US and one for Britain. The US version contains the tag line 'Amazing transformations using the secrets of the top celebrity make-up artist' on the cover. Jennifer - who the make-up maestro has previously called his 'muse' - has posed elegantly for the two front pages. The US version shows her sporting natural cosmetics with her hair tied up, while on the British pictures her with hair dramatically blowing away from her face. Jennifer also wrote the foreword for the book.

J. Lo Reveals Her Beauty Secrets

Jennifer Lopez's go-to makeup artist Scott Barnes just penned a how-to book, About Face, and naturally the superstar was on hand to fete its debut. We asked her to share the most important lesson Barnes has taught her. “Stay out the sun! He really nailed into my head. Bronzer and self-tanners are so worth it. Stay out of the booth, girls! And boys!” she said. “He’s taught me so much about contouring… what should be highlighted and what should be left alone.” But even J. Lo can’t have Barnes on hand at all times! “He teaches you how to do everything step by step so you can do it on you own,” she said of his new book. But if she guest stars on Glee will Barnes be coming on set? “You bet he will be!”

Glam Slam: Makeup Mondays — The Authentic J.Lo Glow

FilmMagic
Jennifer Lopez attends Scott Barnes’ ‘About Face’ book launch party at Provocateur at The Hotel Gansevoort on January 20, 2010 in New York City
By Ryan Patterson

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

What would Jennifer Lopez be without her famous J.Lo Glow? Her signature look ignited a craze with everyone wanting that healthy, radiant look. Jennifer’s longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes is the one who created her bronzed look and now he’s sharing his beauty secrets in a new book called ‘About Face’. Scott, who has also worked Kate Hudson, Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow, gives us the step-by-step process to get The J.Lo Glow:

HOW TO:

Rub a bronze/tinted moisturizer all over exposed skin. Gives skin a dewy, sun-kissed glow and helps even out skin tone and hide flaws.
SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: Scott Barnes’ Body Bling

Apply medium-beige cream foundation. Use a foundation brush to apply - it helps even out coverage. Cream foundation leaves a dewier finish than a liquid foundation, which can cake and look too heavy.

SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: La Mer Creme Foundation

Take a fluffy powder brush and apply a powder bronzer underneath jawbone, along the hairline, and underneath the cheekbone. This slenderizes the face.

SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: Lancome Star Bronzer

Apply a golden-toned powder highlighter to the apples of the cheeks and along the cheekbone. Avoid too pink tones, you want to keep the look natural and bronzed.

SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: NARS Orgasm Blush

Keep eyes and lips neutral. You want the look to be clean and pretty. Use smokey grey along the upper lash line (black is too harsh) and a shimmery neutral-toned shadow on lid. Finish off with a coat of mascara. For added drama: Scott adds a few extra lashes to the lash line for a lusher look.

SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: Maybelline Eye Studio in Neutral

Finish off with a butterscotch-toned gloss.

SCOTT’S SUGGESTION: Pixi Lip Booster in Faerie

Jennifer Lopez’s trademark dewy skin earned her the nickname “J.Glow” some years back. Now the man responsible for Lopez’s fresh-faced beauty has published a book with makeup tips for all women. Scott Barnes’ “About Face” features Lopez on the cover and at the book launch party at the Hotel Gansevoort’s Provocateur last night, the pair gushed about their longtime friendship, which dates to Lopez’s second video.”We’re not just people who work together, we’re best friends. It’s a deeper relationship than that,” Lopez said.

Rumors are swirling that she may be headed to Fox’s “Glee,” but the pop star denied them, protesting that the first she’s heard of a guest spot was on the red carpet. “I don’t know. I’ve heard this from other people,” she said, pointing towards the scrum of cameras. “I’m a huge fan of the show so we’ll see. I’d love to. You know me, I’m a huge fan of musicals.”

Sensing an opportunity, we asked Barnes what women of all ages could do to look younger. “If you’re going to use a bronzer, don’t put it up next your nose or next to your eyes because it will make yourself older,” he said. He pointed to the space under the eyes and the fold around the mouth, saying those areas gets darker with age and bronzer would only heighten, not hide, the problem.

As for the longstanding debate over whether red lips makes women look older, he said there was nuance to wearing red lipstick. On the one hand, you can result in “zipper lips” if not done correctly (he advised glossy, moist lips). But he also said that with the right attitude, wardrobe and complexion, women (Gwen Stefani, for example) could wear red lipstick with panache.

That's how to sell a book: Fab-at-40 J-Lo dazzles in short dress as she helps to launch friend's make-up bible

She became a sex symbol in the 90s thanks to her stunning Latin looks and her famous posterior.

And over a decade later, and at the grand age of 40, Jennifer Lopez proves she still has what it takes to sparkle on the red carpet.

The actress and singer looked gorgeous during an appearance at the launch of a book by her make-up artist Scott Barnes at the Provocateur club in The Hotel Gansevoort in New York.

Latin heat: Jennifer Lopez shows off her fantastic figure at the launch of new book About Face by her make-up artist Scott Barnes



She showed off her amazing figure in a strapless Louis Vuitton LBD with intricate detailing along the panels on either side, coupled with Christian Louboutin gold and black heels and a small black handbag.

Considering the stunning singer is mother to 18-month-old twins she looked fantastic, topping off her look with an immaculate wavy hairdo.

Lopez features on the cover of Scott Barnes' new book About Face, of which there are two different versions - one for the U.S. and one for the UK.

Reunited: The singer and Scott Barnes fell out in 2004 after he claimed she hadn't paid for his work at her wedding but the two have since reconciled


Barnes has worked with Jennifer for the past 10 years, most recently on her latest movie The Back-Up Plan.

However, the two had a very public falling out in 2004, following the singer's wedding to husband Marc Anthony, when he said that the singer owed him money.

Scott claimed that he was invited to the wedding thinking that he would be making up Lopez for the MTV Awards, but he ended up not only working on her, but other members of her family too.

At the time he said: 'I came over on the pretence of business and ended up doing five times the work and wasn't paid.

All about face: Scott Barnes' new book features his 'muse' Jennifer Lopez on the cover - pictured here on the U.S. version of the book


'I've moved on. I'm working on numerous projects. All I really wanted was an apology, and it's sad that after four years I can't even get that.'

But they have since made up, and Jennifer has even taken time to write the foreword for Barnes' new book which is a compendium of hints and tips from his years of experience as a make-up artist.

In other news, Jennifer is rumoured to be making an appearance in the highly-successful U.S. TV show Glee after the show's creator announced plans to meet with her.

Ryan Murphy told the LA Times: 'I have a meeting with Jennifer Lopez in a couple weeks. She wants to come on. We want her to be a cafeteria lady.'

Stunning: Jennifer Lopez is featured on the UK version of About Face, which differs from the American cover


The show, which won Best TV Comedy at the Golden Globes this week, will also see a special episode dedicated to the Queen of Pop - Madonna.

Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the show told U.S. website E!: 'We have a huge, all-girls Madonna song and dance number that we're doing. I think the fans will not be disappointed in the Madonna episode.

'It's big and it's powerful, and the characters who are interacting together are not the ones you would expect. I feel like with each episode everything keeps escalating to a new level.'

Marc And J. Lo Bring The Glamour To The Big Apple

Last night superstar couple Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez attended Scott Barnes' About Face book launch in New York City, and while Marc looked all sorts of serious in his all black ensemble, J. Lo was absolutely glowing!

Maybe a launch party for a beauty book isn't Marc's cup of tea? Either way, we have to give this duo props for looking so well put together all the time. Think J. Lo dresses her man, or does he have his own sense of style?

Scott Barnes - About Face - Review

Note - this book was paid for by myself and purchased through www.amazon.com (i ordered on Tuesday night and it arrived today - not bad eh. Total cost including shipping was £34 ish pounds).

There is much to learn from this book and for those of you who think contouring is the best thing in the world - you will love this book.

Plenty of photos, how to and good sections, this ranks with the best of the best in makeup books.

A brief intro from Jennifer Lopez herself and then onto the transformations. Rather than being a simple makeup book this focuses on transforming people - through makeup. Something most makeup books lack (bobbi brown take note).

While i could rave and rave, and i do, there is one major problem. This makeup (base) is mostly unwareable for daily use. Its not that the eye makeup isn't amazing - it is - its that the base (concealer, foundation, contouring) is so heavy that you can see it a mile away. Something i also noticed from most Kevyn Aucoin books also) For photo shoots, as you'll see, its flawless. For daily life without the lighting its heavy and solid. Even one where there was little foundation and just highlighting it looks thick and powder heavy. Such a shame.

But taking that aside, this is still one of the best books written about makeup and from someone that really knows his stuff. And unlike the scott barnes website, there is only one real picture of him (in all his handsome beauty).

Run and pick up a copy for christmas... It made my christmas :)

Posted by Kari on Jan-12-2010
I spent much of my holiday time off reading the newest makeup book. This one is About Face by makeup artist Scott Barnes. I haven (TM)t seen a makeup book like this since the likes of Kevyn Aucoin (TM)s collection of books. He doesn (TM)t just apply makeup to most of the models in the book to make them pretty, he transforms their looks. Heavy on the importance of highlighting and contouring, it (TM)s what he sees as the way to transform the face. He also talks about the importance of having moisturized skin, because your face won (TM)t accept makeup as well without it. And relax the face by applying pressure at your jaw joint by your ears " hard pressure. By relaxing the face it makes you look younger.

There are many models photographed throughout their application of the makeup, and they are many different age ranges including celebrities. And of course, Jennifer Lopez is on the cover. He does most of her makeup applications for her cover shots (including the InStyle on stands now).

Most of the makeup applications shown are not a quick morning, getting ready for work process. These appear to be more time consuming and detailed with all the highlighting and contouring. But, I think it would be fun to try some of these techniques when getting ready for a date night. Then maybe after a lot of practice, some of the techniques could become quite easy.

At $24.99 it (TM)s a great value in a large, detailed book with several photographs. If looking for a makeup book that (TM)s not your normal, run-of-the-mill makeup book this is one to check out.

MAC Warm & Cozy Inspirational Look & Review - Beauty Products and Tips - Zimbio

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1931.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1931

Written by MuDiva on 2010-01-12T06:29:00
From: themakeupdivas.com

For our inspirational look we chose to recreate the photo above which was taken from the "Warm and Cozy " collection looks. We used a combination of MAC (TM)s face charts hosted on their website. Some of the products were substituted as necessary.

FACE: To create this look, we first used MAC (TM)s Mineralize All-Over Lotion Visage et Corps as the moisturizer to prep Stephanie's face. Not only did the lotion do a fantastic job of moisturizing (the formula was not too oily or too heavy) but it also lacked that nauseatingly strong, perfume-like scent. Next, we used ERA Everyday Primer followed by ERA Face Foundation in the R4 shade. Cheeks MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Personal Style - This blush is from the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Porcelain Pink to highlight EYES On the eyes, we started off by using a cream colour base by MAC in Fresh Morning that was applied over the lid followed by Eyeshadow Suite over it. Next we swept MAC eyeshadow underneath the brow as the highlight shade. On the crease, we applied three different shades: first we used a MAC pigment in Deck Chair on the outer portion of the crease. On that same area, we blended MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow to intensify the color. On the inner area of the crease, we applied MAC Mulled Cider . Next, we applied a gel liner by Bobbi Brown called Steel on the upper and lower lash line. We then dusted MAC'S Mulled Cider eye shadow, which is part of the Warm&Cozy collection, through the lower lashes. We finished the eyes off with a coat of MAC's new Studio Fix Lash to the upper and lower lashes. MAC describes Mulled Cider as a "dark warm brown"(satin) but it really isn't all that dark looking on the eyes. It's a neutral brown without any red or orange tones in it. The texture was smooth and it blended nicely. It's a really pretty shade of brown, unlike any other browns I have. It's just a shame that it's limited edition.

Lips I first lined and then filled in Steph's lips with Scott Barnes lip pencil in Barely Brown. Next I applied MAC Lipstick in AWAKEN followed by MAC Lipglass in UNDERAGE I think that's about it...I had a hard time choosing which photo to use because they were all so pretty. There were actually a lot more photos that I took that were too blurry to use. We even used a similar cream colored fur rug that is shown in the inspirational photo but they didn't turn out so well.

Using Beauty to Do Good By Hilary Howard Published New York Times: January 6, 2010

THE theme of "About Face, "the 240-page coffee table book that features 20 dramatic makeovers and goes on sale this month ($25), is that beauty should be used for "purpose instead of for vanity (TM)s sake, " said its author, Scott Barnes, in a recent interview.

Mr. Barnes, a makeup artist who has worked with Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others, cited the Old Testament story of Queen Esther as an example of the power of beauty. Esther, an orphaned Jewish peasant, learned how to embellish her looks in the court of King Ahasuerus of Persia, also known as Xerxes. She was ultimately selected as his queen. "Her beauty saved a race of people, " he said, as he described her role in halting a planned massacre of Persia (TM)s Jews.

The idea of using beauty for the greater good is consistent throughout the project. "Every celebrity I chose for the book has a foundation or is involved in a foundation, " said Mr. Barnes, who selected 4 celebrities and 16 women who aren (TM)t famous to make over for the book, including Katherine Albrecht, a privacy expert and activist, and the actress Mariska Hargitay, who started the Joyful Heart Foundation, which supports survivors of sexual assault.

Looking good brings respect, Mr. Barnes said. "You show up in nice clothing at the airport and they (TM)re nice to you, " he said. "You show up in sweats and they (TM)re like, 'The kiosk is over there. (TM) "

Mr. Barnes, who trained as a painter at Parsons, got his start in makeup mixing raw pigments. "I started working with them just like I used to mix all my oil paints in a grinding glass, " he said. Soon, Julianne Moore was requesting a jar. Then Lucy Liu, then Jennifer Lopez. From there his makeup career soared.

Although Mr. Barnes doesn (TM)t run a foundation himself, he is working to establish one for melanoma. Mr. Barnes, who is renowned for playing light off the skin, and whose shimmering lotion, Body Bling, is popular among celebrities, had a younger brother, John, who died of melanoma at age 30. The book is dedicated to him.

"Her beauty saved a race of people," he said, as he described her role in halting a planned massacre of Persia's Jews.

The idea of using beauty for the greater good is consistent throughout the project. "Every celebrity I chose for the book has a foundation or is involved in a foundation," said Mr. Barnes, who selected 4 celebrities and 16 women who aren't famous to make over for the book, including Katherine Albrecht, a privacy expert and activist, and the actress Mariska Hargitay, who started the Joyful Heart Foundation, which supports survivors of sexual assault.

Looking good brings respect, Mr. Barnes said. "You show up in nice clothing at the airport and they're nice to you," he said. "You show up in sweats and they're like, 'The kiosk is over there.' "
Mr. Barnes, who trained as a painter at Parsons, got his start in makeup mixing raw pigments. "I started working with them just like I used to mix all my oil paints in a grinding glass," he said. Soon, Julianne Moore was requesting a jar. Then Lucy Liu, then Jennifer Lopez. From there his makeup career soared.
Although Mr. Barnes doesn't run a foundation himself, he is working to establish one for melanoma. Mr. Barnes, who is renowned for playing light off the skin, and whose shimmering lotion, Body Bling, is popular among celebrities, had a younger brother, John, who died of melanoma at age 30. The book is dedicated to him.

Another Winning J.Lo Cover from Latina Magazine!

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1897.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1897

Another Winning J.Lo Cover from Latina Magazine! As many of you may know, I have collected Jennifer Lopez magazine covers since she became a breakout star. I love how each and every time her face, eyes, hair communicates something completely different.

Of course her amazing makeup artist, Scott Barnes has been with her for most of these transformations, and created her signature "glow" and "sexy nude lip", which Jennifer does variations of at times as well for magazines, red carpets, etc.

This month's Latina magazine is another winning cover (remember how much I also loved the Sessile Lopez Latina Magazine cover?). I love the way the light softly shines behind Jennifer, creating a bit of a modern halo effect, while her lips, v-neck tee shirt and knee high socks (with the gold sequins - how fab!?) are all nude. The cheekbones are sculpted, and the eyes are smoky but soft and I love her hair in this soft, modern "Farrah" style. This will be my first collectible J.Lo. cover for 2010 for sure! - RLB

Celebrity/Get the Look, beauty
You may not be able to get Jennifer Lopez (TM)s signature curves and you may not want the unsightly bodysuit that she wore on New Year (TM)s Eve, but you can get her sexy makeup look, created by her long-time makeup artist and friend Scott Barnes . "The key to this look is rimming the inside of the eyes with a charcoal pencil, " says Barnes, who loves

Maybelline (TM)s Expert Eyes liners. Barnes then smudged grey and black shadows to create an elongated smoky eye, giving Jennifer sultry, stand-out definition. To take the look to the next level, Barnes used

Duo Eyelash Adhesive to adhere Swarovski Crystals to JLo (TM)s eyelids, adding that special dose of New Year (TM)s Eve glamour. "With such a strong eye, I kept the rest of her face clean with nude lips and light cheek color, " says Barnes, who recommends emphasizing either the eyes or the lips, but NEVER both.
What did you think of J. Lo (TM)s New Year (TM)s Eve makeup look?

How Did J.Lo Ever Wear That Outfit? - PopEater.com

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1902.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1902

By Jo Piazza Posted Wednesday 06 January 05:00 PM Filed under: Celebrity Style -
Jennifer Lopez did seek out opinions on her New Years cat suit before she suited up. According to People.com J-Lo asked her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes whether it was too much (We can't imagine anyone telling J-Lo the truth about that without the threat of water boarding). She asked her hubby Marc Anthony and he also approved. But Marc was having his own style issues that night. Apparently no one told him that wearing sunglasses after sundown only works if you're Jack Nicholson . Was Jenny just asking the wrong kids on the block for their opinion? We sure wish she had asked ours before she squeezed into the sparkly body condom. 73 percent of PopEater's 46,000 voters hated it! And the wisdom of crowds is never wrong.

After the jump, PopEater examines the outfit. We asked our experts what they thought, because frankly, who relies on their hubby and makeup artist's opinion before going on national television to ring in a new decade? It's like relying on your mom to tell you that you look pretty during puberty.

One train of thought is that now that Jenny has pushed 40, she's tryin' to keep up with the youngsters and their crazy fashion choices (a la Gaga's no-pants policy for 2009).
"Lopez has been out of the game for some time, and stepping back into a pop world now dominated by
Lady Gaga s and Rihanna s requires more than just a song and dance to sell singles," said StyleList 's Marissa Gold But can one-upmanship really explain away a onesie on New Years?
"Everyone is trying to outdo each other now. These stars realize they can't be naked so they resort to this, even though body suits are not flattering and are not cool," said celebrity stylist Mary Alice Stephenson. "
Cher is really the only one who could get away with it." Beyond trying to best girls half her age, Stephenson believes J-Lo may be in a battle with herself to try to remain relevant.
"When stars have to push it to get attention they lose their filter about what looks OK and what does not. The bottom line is this is keeping her in the news and even though it might not be the attention she was hoping for it is attention nonetheless," Stephenson said.
The question that remains is how did J-Lo manage to get herself into the suit. Did she have help? Did Max and Emme each grab a leg and stuff.
PopWrap 's Ryan Brockington has the answer: "With a chorizo maker!"

Skin Deep Using Beauty to Do Good
By HILARY HOWARD Published: January 6, 2010

THE theme of "About Face, " the 240-page coffee table book that features 20 dramatic makeovers and goes on sale this month ($25), is that beauty should be used for "purpose instead of for vanity (TM)s sake, " said its author, Scott Barnes, in a recent interview.

WORKING IT The makeup artist Scott Barnes emphasizes the power of beauty in his new book. Mr. Barnes, a makeup artist who has worked with Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others, cited the Old Testament story of Queen Esther as an example of the power of beauty. Esther, an orphaned Jewish peasant, learned how to embellish her looks in the court of King Ahasuerus of Persia, also known as Xerxes. She was ultimately selected as his queen.

Looking good brings respect, Mr. Barnes said. "You show up in nice clothing at the airport and they (TM)re nice to you, " he said. "You show up in sweats and they (TM)re like, 'The kiosk is over there. (TM) "

"Every celebrity I chose for the book has a foundation or is involved in a foundation," said Mr. Barnes, who selected 4 celebrities and 16 women who aren't famous to make over for the book, including Katherine Albrecht, a privacy expert and activist, and the actress Mariska Hargitay, who started the Joyful Heart Foundation, which supports survivors of sexual assault.
Looking good brings respect, Mr. Barnes said. "You show up in nice clothing at the airport and they're nice to you," he said. "You show up in sweats and they're like, 'The kiosk is over there.' "
Mr. Barnes, who trained as a painter at Parsons, got his start in makeup mixing raw pigments. "I started working with them just like I used to mix all my oil paints in a grinding glass," he said. Soon, Julianne Moore was requesting a jar. Then Lucy Liu, then Jennifer Lopez. From there his makeup career soared.

Although Mr. Barnes doesn't run a foundation himself, he is working to establish one for melanoma. Mr. Barnes, who is renowned for playing light off the skin, and whose shimmering lotion, Body Bling, is popular among celebrities, had a younger brother, John, who died of melanoma at age 30. The book is dedicated to him.

When Jennifer Lopez first showed her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes her sexy catsuit the day of her appearance on Dick Clark (TM)s New Year (TM)s Rockin (TM) Eve , she asked him, "Do you think it (TM)s too much? " But, there wasn (TM)t much doubt she (TM)d be wearing the daring look, designed by stylist Paula Bradley. "She said, 'It looks cool, right? (TM) She was so excited. She said 'I like it! (TM) " Barnes explains, "She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She (TM)s not hiding behind any insecurities. " And Barnes marvels at her incredible shape, considering she is the mother of twins! "She is 40 and she (TM)s had two kids, " he says. "Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot! " Husband Marc Anthony also approved, according to Barnes. The catsuit however, wasn (TM)t quite as naked as it appeared on TV. "It was nude with black mesh over it, " says Barnes. "She wasn (TM)t that cold. It was like having a ski suit on underneath. " And her bodysuit wasn (TM)t the only sexy thing Lopez was sporting " Barnes highlighted her eyes with smoky makeup including charcoal eyeliner, several coats of mascara and Swarovski crystals sprinkled over her lids, paired with nude lipstick from LancA(c)me layered with pink gloss and a little highlighter on her cheekbones. "There was enough going on, " he says of balancing her out-there catsuit with a lighter makeup application. And lest this look be soon forgotten, Barnes places it with J. Lo (TM)s most iconic look. "The bodysuit is right up there with her Versace dress (from the 2000 Grammy Awards), " says Barnes. "After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn (TM)t have the guts to wear something like that but she is so confident. She (TM)s a woman and she celebrates it.

Nearly five days after she appeared on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" rocking a super sexy, barely-there catsuit , songstress Jennifer Lopez is still making headlines. "Sexy Mama!!" screamed one tabloid. "Hot Mama!" blared another.
And then there was this one: "OVEREXPOSED!" declared a British newspaper.
That's nothing compared to the comments made by Twitter addicts in the moments following Lopez's performance.
"There's too many wrinkles. It looks like elephant skin," a woman from Philadelphia Tweeted.
Another person Tweeted that the outfit "made her look like some kind of weird naked Barbie doll."
From what I can tell, the hoopla over Lopez's decision to appear nearly naked in a sparkly, body-hugging ensemble, as she strutted her stuff in Times Square, has little to do with the fact that she is an international recording star, and everything to do with the fact that
she is a 40-year-old mother of twin toddlers. Apparently, 40-year-old mothers shouldn't be allowed to wear revealing getups on national TV and gyrate like someone half their age.
Frankly, I wouldn't have been caught dead in Lopez's glittery getup when I was 16, let alone 40, but that's just me.

I'm a mom who rolls in JCrew khakis and GAP Oxford shirts. But Lopez's style has always left little to the imagination. Remember when she made eyes pop sporting that infamous breast exposing, navel-plunging green Versace to the 2000 Grammys? Obviously, the woman is staying true to her inner fashionista, despite birthing two children on the same day.
Lopez's longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes went to bat for his bodacious buddy in the days following the bodysuit brouhaha.
Barnes told PEOPLE magazine: "Jennifer has confidence about her body. She's not hiding behind any insecurities.
She is 40 and she's had two kids . Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot!" For the record, Barnes says Lopez wasn't as naked as she appeared on TV.

"(The bodysuit) was nude with black mesh over it," says Barnes. "Most women wouldn't have the guts to wear something like that but she is so confident. She's a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her."
Still, others believe that Lopez shouldn't have flaunted her figure in the skin-tight bodysuit under the bright lights in Times Square on New Year's Eve.
"Her butt looked big in it," observed one audience member. "She should have covered up for her kids' sake."
Contrast that to the comment made by "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" host Ryan Seacrest who claimed Lopez's outfit made his year.
Do you think Lopez's outfit was too revealing... for a mom?

Jennifer Lopez Looked "So Hot" in Ridiculous Catsuit, Friend Says January 5th, 2010 10:21 AM by Hilton Hater
Tags: Celebrity Fashion , Jennifer Lopez We admire Jennifer Lopez for being proud of her curvy body. We wish all female celebrities would set such a healthy example for young women.
That said, the singer still looked terrible in her New Year's Eve bodysuit . It was simply a ridiculous outfit for anyone to wear. However, Scott Barnes begs to differ. The star's make-up artist spoke to People about his client's fashion choice and said: "She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She (TM)s not hiding behind any insecurities... She is 40 and she (TM)s had two kids. Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot! "

Barnes compared the outfit above to Lopez's iconic Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards:
"After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn (TM)t have the guts to wear something like that, but she is so confident. She (TM)s a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her. "

Again, we agree with that attitude. Just not with the catsuit.
Yech! Do you think the costume is sexy or sucky? Sexy!
Sucky!

Raunchy J-Lo outfit reveals all

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1894.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1894

Jennifer Lopez has more body confidence than ever. The singer-and-actress' delight at the daring Paula Bradley-designed catsuit she sported for her appearance on 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' last week was clear to see, says her make-up artist Scott Barnes. He revealed: "She said, 'It looks cool, right?' She was so excited. She said 'I like it!' She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She's not hiding behind any insecurities." Despite the raunchy outfit, Scott insists it is not as revealing as it seemed on television. He explained to People magazine: "It was nude with black mesh over it. She wasn't that cold. It was like having a ski suit on underneath." While mother-of-two Jennifer was comfortable with the outfit, Scott believes it took a lot of "guts" to wear something so revealing in public. He added to People magazine: "The bodysuit is right up there with her Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards. After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn't have the guts to wear something like that but she is so confident. She's a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her." BANG Showbiz

Jennifer Lopez Was Super Excited Over Body-Con Catsuit

The N.Y. Times recently ran an article about a fairly remarkable shift in the way Fashion Bloggers are now being received...namely, with respect. ( Bloggers Crash The Front Row ). Not long ago, well known Bloggers were lucky to get press credentials and standing room only "seating" at the Fall and Spring fashion shows. Now a 13 year old upstart, named Tavi Gevinson, is sitting front row with Ms. Wintour and her Vogue posse at coveted shows like Rodarte and Marc Jacobs. Come to think of it, this is not just fairly remarkable it is completely remarkable. So what has changed??? In my view, the frequency and immediacy of how quickly we devour information from a gamut of sources. Magazines edicts are yesterday's news. Back in the day, I would look forward to receiving my monthly fashion and beauty magazines. They were the experts, who were privy to preview the latest. They would sort and sift and come up with pithy names for seasonal trends and dictate the do's and dont's, haves and have nots. Not anymore. We be infiltrating sacred turf. I used to look forward to seeing the Allure Editors Favorites, now I look forward to telling you mine. Do I still read them??? Naturally...while I am having a manicure or a pedicure. Every magazine now has an online version of itself. I should do some research and see if their editorial staffs are now wearing two hats and creating "Blog" style stories. Geez, don't they realize I'm available??? I still like to touch, feel and on occassion copy the looks that inspire from old fashioned print. J. Lo's clean yet smoldering coppery orbs, on the cover of January Allure caught my orbs. How was the look created and with what ??? Apparently, I am on a Rimmel roll. J. Lo was wearing Rimmel London's newest eyeshadow offering, Color Rush Trio in Lynx, rimmed by Special Eyes Precision Eye Line Pencil in Black Magic, and I had to try it... so much for cutting and pasting. Step by step, I tried to recreate Scott Barnes makeup lesson onto my face and hoped for the best... I was delighted with the silky texture of the Trio and the way it glided on seamlessly. (For $5.17, I am marveling at the quality). I always use a light shadow on my lid and was surprised to see how different the effect was switching it up with the copper shade. Did I look like J. Lo??? Not exactly. But to Allures credit, at least J. Lo did... and that's a whole other Blog. Happy, Healthy New Year to all my readers!!! I love sharing my experiences with you and I appreciate you. xox, DD

Blogger Bliss The N.Y. Times recently ran an article about a fairly remarkable shift in the way Fashion Bloggers are now being received...namely, with respect . ( Bloggers Crash The Front Row ). Not long ago, well known Bloggers were lucky to get press credentials and standing room only "seating" at the Fall and Spring fashion shows. Now a 13 year old upstart, named Tavi Gevinson , is sitting front row with Ms. Wintour and her Vogue posse at coveted shows like Rodarte and Marc Jacobs . Come to think of it, this is not just fairly remarkable it is completely remarkable. So what has changed??? In my view, the frequency and immediacy of how quickly we devour information from a gamut of sources. Magazines edicts are yesterday's news. Back in the day, I would look forward to receiving my monthly fashion and beauty magazines.

They were the experts, who were privy to preview the latest. They would sort and sift and come up with pithy names for seasonal trends and dictate the do's and dont's, haves and have nots. Not anymore. We be infiltrating sacred turf. I used to look forward to seeing the Allure Editors Favorites, now I look forward to telling you mine . Do I still read them???

Naturally ...while I am having a manicure or a pedicure. Every magazine now has an online version of itself. I should do some research and see if their editorial staffs are now wearing two hats and creating "Blog" style stories. Geez, don't they realize I'm available???

I still like to touch, feel and on occassion copy the looks that inspire from old fashioned print. J. Lo's clean yet smoldering coppery orbs, on the cover of January caught my orbs. How was the look created and with what ??? Apparently, I am on a Rimmel roll. J. Lo was wearing Rimmel London's newest eyeshadow offering, Color Rush Trio in Lynx , rimmed by Special Eyes Precision Eye Line Pencil Black Magic , and I had to try it... so much for cutting and pasting. Step by step, I tried to recreate Scott Barnes makeup lesson onto my face and hoped for the best... I was delighted with the silky texture of the Trio and the way it glided on seamlessly. (For $5.17, I am marveling at the quality). I always use a light shadow on my lid and was surprised to see how different the effect was switching it up with the copper shade. Did I look like J. Lo??? Not exactly. But to Allures credit, at least J. Lo did ... and that's a whole other Blog. Happy, Healthy New Year to all my readers!!! I love sharing my experiences with you and I appreciate you.xox.

Brighten Up Your Face December 29, 2009
Sometimes you have to fake a little sunshine "even come winter. Makeup artist Scott Barnes, creator of
Body Bling bronzer, and the author of the upcoming book About Face , gave us his tips for how to warm up your skin tone without looking fake. "Sleep with a humidifier in your bedroom," he says. "It'll help keep your skin supple and moisturized."

"A sheer foundation, one shade darker than your skin tone, will make you look well-rested. Sweep bronzer over your temples, around your hairline, and under your jaw line, working up toward your cheekbones to blend everything together. Leave your nose and eyes alone, since bronzer creates too much darkness there, which can age you."
"When choosing a bronzer, don't go for something brick red "that's a common mistake," says Barnes. Women with fair and medium skin tones should choose something yellow-brown (we like
LancA(c)me Star Bronzers ), while women with dark skin should stick to highlighter. "Highlighter makes the light catch your features, just don't go overboard," he says. "I like to swipe powder it from the temples to the tops of the cheekbones." A golden champagne, like

Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Luminous (shown above), looks good on fair and medium skin; choose a pearlescent, bronze shade such as Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion in Glow if you have darker skin. Barnes adds, "Some people think the trick is to mix cream highlighter with foundation, but that's too metallic spread over your face. You'll look like the Tin Man." "Keep eyes simple and lips neutral and glossy, and finish by brushing a touch of golden pink blush onto the apples of cheeks." Try
Nars blush in Orgasm or Revlon Powder Blush in Pink Blush .

Update: A Cut Above Christmas Soiree + Christmas Prezzies + In Organizing Hell + Perricone MD Giveaway Winner

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1864.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1864

Tell me that this isn't one of the cutest things you've ever seen and Imma punch you in the face -- Only kidding. Please don't run away... I don't even know how to make a fist!
How was everyone's Christmas? Any plans for New Year celebrations? I'll be heading up to Cameron Highlands with some friends on Wednesday. No traffic jams and suffocating crowds for me, please!
Read on for some random bits. I'm sure there'll be something for you.
About a week before Christmas, the usual event-going "kaki" (aka gang) gathered in Sunway Pyramid for A Cut Above Christmas Soiree themed Shanghai Moulin Rouge. There were loads of outfits and hair masterpieces being showcased so for once, we weren't more engrossed by the food. At one point during the show, I yelled out "VPL!" but as it turned out, the models were actually sporting body paint. Gosh, how embarrassing!

We had the pleasure of being entertained by Malaysian Idol Finalist, Nikki, with her rendition of Moulin Rouge and that gorgeous gorgeous dress.
Shawn Lee, the beat-boxing boy wonder, closed the show and wow. Just wow.
Give us camera-armed girls some beer and there's no stopping the camwhoring. Did you notice that only Bee came in theme with her cheongsam?

For the night's look I'ved used Benefit Dr. Feelgood and RMK Powder Foundation EX in #103 for my base makeup. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Cheeky Bronze on the cheeks. For eyeshadow, I've used MAC Melon Pigment on the lid, I Nuovi Spellbound in the crease, some Scott Barnes Night to darken the outer corner, and Stila Mystic on the lower lash line. Of course, MAC Ricepaper as highlight. I've also added gold glitter gel liner by KATE onto the inner corners. MAC Blacktrack Fluidline and Taiwan faux lashes complete the eye makeup.

Fast forwarding...
The MAC Love's Devine Lash Kit is among many other Christmas prezzies from the ladies in my life who understand my passion. ParisB and Plue helped strike out a few things off my wishlist and Kahani satisfied my candy cane craving (I decided not to buy 3 boxes of candy canes this year...). Love you girls lots lots!
Also, I must have done something awfully nice this year (no idea what) because as of Christmas Day, my MAC collection doubled. Sorry, no details!
Since I need to make way for all my new makeup, I figured that I'd have to start organizing my stash. So far I've only managed to fill up this black acrylic case with all my lip products, mascaras, pencil/pen liners and eyebrow products. A lot more to go .
Giveaway has closed! Please don't click!
The winner is...
Yvette Anne
Congratulations!
An e-mail notification has been sent to you. Please follow the steps and I'll arrange for the prize to be sent to you

Scott Barnes - About Face - Review

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1855.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1855

Note - this book was paid for by myself and purchased through www.amazon.com (i ordered on Tuesday night and it arrived today - not bad eh. Total cost including shipping was PS34 ish pounds). There is much to learn from this book and for those of you who think contouring is the best thing in the world - you will love this book. Plenty of photos, how to and good sections, this ranks with the best of the best in makeup books. A brief intro from Jennifer Lopez herself and then onto the transformations. Rather than being a simple makeup book this focuses on transforming people - through makeup. Something most makeup books lack (bobbi brown take note). While i could rave and rave, and i do, there is one major problem. This makeup (base) is mostly unwareable for daily use. Its not that the eye makeup isn't amazing - it is - its that the base (concealer, foundation, contouring) is so heavy that you can see it a mile away. Something i also noticed from most Kevyn Aucoin books also) For photo shoots, as you'll see, its flawless. For daily life without the lighting its heavy and solid. Even one where there was little foundation and just highlighting it looks thick and powder heavy. Such a shame. But taking that aside, this is still one of the best books written about makeup and from someone that really knows his stuff. And unlike the scott barnes website, there is only one real picture of him (in all his handsome beauty). Run and pick up a copy for christmas... It made my christmas :) xoxoxoxoxxoxo Happy Christmas Everyone xxoxoxoxoxxoox

Say What?

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_61.pdf?f=image&id=13979_61

Say What? By Scott Barnes iLnglish is an ugly language to sing in, so we have to modify the vowels to make it more beautiful." "You can't sing an 'ee' vowel on a high note, so sing 'ah' but think 'ee.'" "The American inverted is ugly. Roll it as in Italian, or sing a final er' ending as 'uh.'" And the schwa? Anathema. ln an era when HD cameras hold a naturalismo filter through which we view and listen to singers of serious music, it seems odd that affected, Margaret Dumont-style "concert English" lives on. We would never tolerate its equivalent in thc straight theater: stage speech is a living and changing thing. Old-fashioned theater-speak, which was a cross between mid-Atlantic and jahncy British, more declaimed than acted, would sound ridiculous on the modern professional stage. Once upon a time (let's say pre-Laurette Taylor) many players were often at a certain emotional remove from the audience: they showed rather than livedxhc text. With the advent of "method" acting, theater actors such as Kim Stanley and Ben Gazzara projected a speech that was more natural but could still carry to the back ofthe house. And as movie and TV actors also moved onto thc boards, classic breathing and projection exercises yielded an amalgam of styles that was both realistic and heightened in "size" for legit houses. Classical singers in America, for the most part, haven't followed this lead which is why so many classically trained singers still sound ridiculous singing oratorio, let alone Broadway and pop music. Yet as a stage director who works with unamplified singers all the time, I can attest that a clearly sung word with natural-sounding consonants and natural-sounding vowels can be heard in the largest of halls and can also translate easily to the microphone or the recording studio. American English is full of diphthongs (the word "rose" is actually more like "roh-ooz" and "night" is not "iiaht" but "NAHeet"), soft onsets, unfricked fricatives and unexploded plosives. But try to sell that to most singers of "concert English." Their teachers have emphasized the rolled rs and doppios (the double t and ^sounds that we don't have in English) of Italian, the French nasals, and the various Germanic "ch"s. If they started out singing in choirs, they may be prone to the precisely popped , coughed cs and exaggerated final ts and ds that contribute to clear choral diction. Only occasionally has their training addressed (sorry: ^ahdrrrrrrresss'l'") an aria in English or an American song group. j\nd there we have it. The components of European diction just don't apply to singing American concert English. We have trained generations of American classical singers to sing their native tongue as if they were foreigners. No American singing teacher or vocal coach would permit "American" pronunciation of Italian, German or French. American singers without a natural aptitude for those essential operatic .anguages are drilled until they at least achieve approximations. Yet both sloppy and over-enunciated English ^|t are accepted as the norm. I understand the dilemmas faced by voice teacher and singer alike. Singing is not just speaking on pitch. For a true "e" \ vowel on a forte high note, the singer must enter into a negotiation with her body: the note requires an open space, but the "e" vowel requires a closed space in order to sound like "e." if too much space is provided, we hear "ih," and if the mouth and interior space are too closed, the "e" vowel can be narrow, nasal and inelegant. And so it goes. As a touchstone, 1 decided to listen to -Vndrew Davis's 1987 EMI recording of Handel's Messiah, with an all-American cast, and evaluate the concert English of each singer, without using a score as textual guide, j^side from being absolutely gorgeous vocally, the tecotding showcases expressive and largely unaffected English, almost perfectly understandable. Top honors go to John j\ler and Samuel Ramey, not surprisingly, as Handel's writing largely keeps male singers within the confines of their speaking range. Ramey's English is thoroughly understandable, even through rapid-fire coloratura and in the tipper territory where men often cover or alter vowels. Aler's ability to sing "comfrt" and "mountn" is indicative of a wonderfully unaffected pcrfofmance. I anticipated that Florence Quivar, because of her dark, creamy timbre, would be the least intelligible; overall, she is very namral-sounding. As she waxes espressivo, she rolls some rs, changes "with" to "weeth" and "behold" to "behoold" yet when she sings "He was despised," thete is no phony posturing, just honest communication. The surprise was Kathleen Battle, who, though crystalline and angelic-sounding, seems to be trying hard to sound like a "big girl" by darkening vowels, rolling rs and leaning into phrases just a bit too much, to the peril of the text. Clear, unaffected -\merican English diction is a necessary jumping-off point, but the most important work entails inhabiting the text moment-to-moment in compelling emotional circumstances: "Who am I singing to, about what, and why is it important for me to convey this information?" Not only does this clean up questionable diction, but then and only then will oratorio and sacred concert works in English have genuine immediacy and viscera] appeal. ?

Bars with no doors (they don't need them-they never close) drip in neon, vibrating with the sound of loud, discordant bands jamming away inside, and signs scream their drink specialS-MARGARITAS $2! MOONSHINE SNAKEBITE $4' EAT THE WORM!-vying for the attention of the throngs, who stagger through the streets, plastic cups of beer in hand. People walk into voodoo shops in their polo shirts, cargo shorts, and sandals, and come out bedecked in feathers and charms in every color imaginable. Groups of girls totter by on perilous heels. Clusters of dudes swagger along wearing T-shirts with nicknames-BiG johnny! balls OUTl-spelled out in capital letters on their backs. Every now and again, someone fails over. A few blocks away from this revelry is the quiet, traditional Hotel Monteleone, a tony affair with gilded bannisters, ostentatious chandeliers, a proliferation of polished marble, and a few too many members of staff in opulent livery, opening this and carrying that. And in the back of the hotel's quiet, traditional bar-the centerpiece of which is shaped like a merry-go-round that occasionally, almost imperceptibly, rotates-Hilary Duff is sitting in a high-backed, semi-circular, velvet-lined booth, sipping a glass of red wine. it has taken a while to organize this interview, and the only request I'd made is that it not take place in a hotel bar. And yet. "How about, after this glass, we go to a couple of those places on Bourbon Street?" I venture, about half an hour into our conversation. "I'm not going to say yes, and I'm not going to say no," Duff says a little coyly, taking a sip of Cabernet. "Let's just wait and see." She smiles and sets her glass down on the marble table. "Anyway," she says, glancing at the black ceiling, which is twinkling with tiny lights, "you can't tell me you don't love these sparkly constellations." She winks, mischievously. A few hours and a few more glasses of wine later (we should have ordered a bottle), we're still in our booth. For some "color," Duff's people had actually planned a visit to an antiques store across the street-the owner was going to come back and open it for us after the interview-but when the appointed hour arrives, we're still talking, and she texts someone to cancel it. "We can go if you want," she says, as she eyes up the wine list. "But it seems like we're doing just fine here." Indeed: Duff, it turns out, is quite colorful enough. One Of thOSe rare celebrities whose fame is defined by their successes rather than their mistakes, Hilary Duff conducts herself with the kind of confidence that befits someone who has been working in the entertainment industry for 12 of her 22 years with barely a misstep. Like Britney, Christina, Lindsay et al, Duff is a graduate of the Disney school-an institution where one assumes the "How to get famous quickly" and "How to make a lot of money before you've gone through puberty" classes are consistently wel I-attended, but which doesn't exactly focus on that part of the curriculum dedicated to such lessons as "How not to make a total ass of yourself by the time you're 20." Nevertheless, Duff-who starred as the titular character in no less than 65 episodes of the Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire between 2001 and 2004, and also in The Lizzie McGuire Movie in 2003-has always managed to stay one step ahead of the game, in the process establishing and maintaining a young fanbase that has ensured that her early movies (which weren't bad, exactly, but let's just say you probably didn't watch them) and music all did very, very well. Recently though, Duff is going places where many of these young fans, and their mothers, are unlikely to follow. Take her turn opposite John Cusack as the onomatopoeically named Yonica Babyyeah in War, Inc. (2008), for example. You're probably not about to watch the whole movie, so just YouTube "Hilary Duff scorpion pants" and watch the scene in which she walks into the middle of a club, drops a five scorpion down her pants, then has a man with a gun wedged in his belt fish it out for her. Bubblegum-pop-princess behavior this is not. Although she is most definitely in a transitional stage in her career, Duff has also kept herself conspicuously absent from the tabloid press. ("They're outside my house every day, and I'm like, 'Why are you wasting my time?! Why are you wasting your time?! My picture's never in those magazines'") This in turn has kept her all-American image intact enough to ensure that any music with her name on it does well, and that any product she puts her name behind has a built-in consumer base eager to buy into the Hilary Duff phenomenon. Among these entrepreneurial endeavors at the moment is her collaboration with DKNY Jeans, Femme for DKNY Jeans-a collection of pieces that melds feminine, girly elements with tough details and utilitarian silhouettes. Think motorcycle jackets and black jeans, only with flourishes such as metallics, slits, tassles, and yes, a few sparkles. "I had a clothing line before"-Stuff by Hilary Duff. "But with that, I would just sit there and approve ideas; I was 14 or 15. With this one, I got to bring in textures that I loved and tell them about the shapes that I like. I designed clothing that I feel are staples for my closet. I think that's really helpful to girls who need to know they can mix high-end with low-end, and you don't have to buy a complete outfit the way it's shown in the store. Every girl needs a great leather jacket, and every girl needs a skinny pair of black jeans." Femme for DKNY Jeans, though, is a relatively small part of the Hilary Duff empire. This currently includes two fragrances with Elizabeth Arden (today she is wearing Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood-"! can't sit here and be like, 'All I wear is With Love...' [her first fragrance]. But they want you to do that"), If jacket and skirt by fgfflfflfr for dkny shirt by federation, belt by dolce 5 gabbana, earrings by alexis hi.ttar, necklaces by ffiaipii. . I music (her first album debuted at No. 1, the second at No. 2, and the third at No. 4-she has already released two greatesthits collections), and her acting (there was the recent turn on some show called Gossip Girl; she's also signed on to play Bonnie in Bonnie & Clyde, which has yet to go into production, and just wrapped an independent called Provinces of the Night). In addition to all this, there's the aforementioned Stuff by Hilary Duff, a line of clothing, accessories, cosmetics, home products, and eyewear. "When I was starting, it was like, 'Oh, if you're a singer you can't be an actress.' Or 'If you have a clothing line you can't be a serious actress,'" she says. "But it is possible to be great at a lot of different things. When you bok at the future of things, you have to multitask to be multitalented. It's about being creative, but also about realizing what sells and having a brain and understanding what people want." One day, she adds, she would like to make a iine of corsets. Such acumen is the result of practically a lifetime spent in show business and a career carefully managed by people who have brought Duff this far and who must now step back to see how she does on her own. And right now, she appears to be doing pretty damn well. hllary duff WaS born in Houston, Texas, two years after her sister, Haylie. Five years later, the family moved to San Antonio. "It was hill country, and there wasn't anyone for us to play with, so it forced [Haylie and me] to be really close," she says. Apparently, there was also a lack of good public schools, so the girls' parents enrolled them in a performingarts school. And that, Duff says, is "kind of how everything started!' Soon, Haylie persuaded their mother, Susan, to let her take an acting workshop. "She would come home and teach me all the fun activities they did in the class" Duff remembers. "Like, there would be an imaginary ball, and you'd stand in a circle and catch it, and make a different expression each time. Actually, maybe that would be a fun game to play now." "Like, right now?" "Well;' she smiles, toying with a bracelet, "maybe after a few drinks." After a while, the family moved back to Houston, and Susan began taking her children to Los Angeles during pilot season, just to test the water. "She was super supportive, but scared at first" Duff says. "My poor mom. The mothers there are notorious for gossiping about other people and being evil toward the other kids." Soon enough, the daughters Duff began landing small gigs. "I remember I was on this cable commercial, and I'm sitting there by this barbecue, and my mom was mortified. Like, 'My God, my child has a/oo! And it's hot, and the smoke is going in her face. And she kept trying to get me to sneak out. She was like, 'We can go. Lefs not do this.' I was just sitting there, loving it." They relocated to Oakwood Apartments, a block in Burbank notorious for housing stage mothers and their progeny. Duff was just nine, which is kind of young to be pursuing acting full-time. "I guess, when you say it like that to me, it is weird," she says, slowly. "It's totally weird." For the briefest of moments, she seems to lose her poise. She swirls her wine around in her glass and takes a sip. "It's my normal, though." Another sip. "Oh, look, our candle has gone out." Duff is quick to point out that although it might seem as if her mother pushed her children into acting, it wasn't actually like that. "Haylie loved it, and I started to love it. My mom was like, 'How can I not support my kids in something they want to do?'" she says. "It's not like she dreamed this idea up, and we didn't have a choice. It was never like, 'If you don't get this part, you're going to be punished. My mom would encourage us but never make us go to an audition if we didn't want to go. She was always like, 'If they don't want to do this, we pack up and go home.' "My mom is rad," she goes on. "I feel I'm so much like her. I don't know if it's wrong to drop an F-bomb in the same sentence as your mother, but I'm so fucking lucky to have my mom. She's just taught me so much and given me so much, and she has such an open heart." In a few days, Susan will join her daughter here in New Orleans for Halloween. Hilary is in Louisiana to film The Business of Falling in Love, a TV movie for ABC Family, and has spent a long, tiring day in wardrobe. Despite this, she looks radiant. Her hair, which is currently blonde, is pulled back, accentuating her dramatic jawline, which is like something out of a Ruben Toledo drawing. She is wearing a cozy-looking, camel, Alexander McQueen boat-neck sweater, which sits low on her shoulders. On her wrist is a thick, gold-colored, bat-shaped bracelet by Delfina Delettrez that she bought from Opening Ceremony when she was in New York City recently. On the inside of the middle finger on her right hand is a small tattoo of the word shine. (She also has let rr be on her foot.) "It's new, and it's a little crusty," she says. "It's just for me to look at and remember. I feel like it's really easy to lose your shine, to lose that special thing about yourself. When you get busy or you get tired and you feel like everything is fake or the world is against you, it's important to keep your character and to let your light shine." Although I'm well aware of how this might read in print, when she says it in person, I just want to hug her. duff wasn't prepared for the fame that came with Lizzie McGuire, but she seems born to deal with the spotlight. "I walked into a mall one day and was mobbed by people," she says. "And I just remember feeling really different than everyone else. I felt really loved. But it was weird at the same time. I don't necessarily like to walk into a place and be recognized." I ask Duff whether she still gets the same kind of attention from the same kind of people. "Well, the people who thought you were really cool want to grow past you-they don't think you're cool anymore," she says, "i still enjoy my job, and I get to be creative. But it's hard. It's a transition. What are the right choices to make? What do people want to see me doing? I just came off Gossip Girl, where I had some crazy story lines [including a controversial threesome with Vanessa and Dan]. Now I'm doing a TV movie that's a romantic comedy. I think it's important to keep that audience watching you-you being in their living room all the time. I appreciate my fans, but I want to do different things. And I don't feel a responsibility to keep being their perfect role model." A lot of people wouldn't just come out and say that, I point out. "No, they'd give a politically correct answer," she says. "One that's not going to piss people off." She finishes her glass of wine, and we order another round, "i think [before], I had to censor myself and the choices I made. My choices were planned out to be a little gentler for my fanbase. I felt a massive responsibility." Now though, things are a bit different; Duff is all grown up. "Parents started coming up to me saying, 'Never change.' At first I was like, 'That's really nice.' Then I was like, 'Wait a minute. You just told me to never change. Be perfect all the time?! Really?' It started to bother me." She's animated now. "It's weird being that blonde American girl..., I was that. It wasn't a false representation. As is usually the case when America loves you-they feel something about you is endearing or relatable. It was true, and hopefully it's still true. But I feel like I outgrew it. I have a whole team of people that works for me; it was hard to sit everyone down [and tell them that]." I'm about to ask her how this team of people, who have ensured that we are in this staid hotel bar rather than say, Pat O'Brien's drinking Hurricanes, felt about the scorpion incident-which might one day be seen as a turning point in the Hilary Duff image campaign-but she brings it up first. "I remember getting phone calls from everyone being like, 'Did you throw a scorpion down your pants?' But 1 think out my decisions before I make them. I knew what 1 wanted, but it was hard to make it happen, ft still is. I still get, 'Well, we don't know if we want Hilary Duff for that.' They feel there's a preconceived image there. When t did War, Inc., John Cusack called me and said, 'Come to Bulgaria and do this movie. You're going to be awesome.' It was like, 'Wow, somebody out there doesn't know me, but still thinks I'm capable of doing something like this, when everybody else puts me in a box.'" "It's hard now for me to change and do all the things that I want to do and can see myself doing, and to convince people of that," she continues. "But the things I do now are because I want to do them and because I think they're interesting. It's nice to be in this place. I'm not super-rebellious, where I'm like, 1 hate how people view me. I need to be the complete opposite! I wanted that, but I think I did it slowly and not in a way where people were all of a sudden watching me fall apart in my reai life by trying to prove that I'm a grown-up." In a way, her role on Gossip Girl-as actress Olivia Burke, girlfriend of Dan Humphrey-was an ironic look at just these potential pitfalls of fame. "When my manager told me about the part, I was a little hesitant," she says. "It was kind of close to home. Like, I wouldn't do a movie where I sang. I'd rather keep those worlds separate. Then I realized I would never say something like, 'Oh, this is just for the cameras,'" as Olivia does on the show. "I think that's what makes me so different from some of the other people my age. It seemed for a time there were people who hated each other-and I knew they hated each other-but they were in pictures together all the time, smiling and throwing their arms around each other. I was like, 'You're in the same business I am-how can you do that and feel OK?' I so wouldn't do that." today, duff liveS quietly in a house in Toluca Lake, California, with her boyfriend, Mike Comne, a hockey player for the New York Islanders. {There is actually a lake in their backyard, and the couple have a boat.) "We met in Idaho," she says. "He had just gotten out of a relationship, and I hadn't dated anyone in like a year. We had this amazing weekend and didn't spend one day apart before I left for tour. And we were like, 'Are we gonna do this?' because I didn't want to waste time or play games. Now it's been two years. It's stress-free. He's great." Duff, who has just remodeled her home, lives down the street from her mother; her sister lives in the same neighborhood. "I can't wait until 10 years down the line," she says. "To move out of LA. I want simple. I want to live on a farm somewhere." She has four dogs-Jack, Coco, Lola, and DuBois and two cats, and lots of pictures of them on her iPhone, which she shares, gleefully. She's also in the market for a Royal Dandie or two-those would be miniature pot-bellied pigs. "What are they called?" she asks. "Royal Diggies?" "Nope." "Royal Ditties?" "No. Why don't you just cail them mini pigs, like everyone else?" "I don't know! It's such a funny word! Royal Diddy..." "Royal Dandie." "Yes! My boyfriend was like, 'If you get another animal, I think I have to be out,'" she says. "He says there's no more room in the bed, but I'm going to get one for sure! They're so cute! I want one so bad. It could get truffles for me!" "I think truffle pigs are a different deal," I tell her. "I want one of those too then!" she squeals, clasping her hands together. Duff seems entirely happy right now, completely at ease with where she is in life, and where she's going. "It's really strange for me to see some of my peers in this industry act like they hate it. But they do things they know are... I don't want to judge them, because maybe we're just made up totally different." She finishes her glass of wine and points to mine. "You gonna drink that or just look at it?" she says, laughing, "it's like I feel there are two sides to me: One is different and weird, and then I have this mainstream side that loves Top 40 radio stations. They fight sometimes, those two sides of me, but f want to do both things really well." She seems to be doing quite a good job of this. "But I'm not satisfied!" she says, "Maybe I wii be in 10 years, when I'm like, 'You know what? I did it.

Sizzling sultry eyes for holiday glam December 21, 11:14 AM Biloxi Beauty Examiner

I Drop 600 Calories Without Feeling FASHION PR The Best New Dresses, Skirts, and Jackets COVER LOOK Love Story jennifer Lopez wasn't wearing mom jeans or practical shoes when she arrived at New York City's Lux Studio, but that didn't stop her from balancing 17-month-old twins Max and Emme on each hip with perfect ease (in five-inch Christian Louboutin heels, no less). Even with her driver, security guard, nanny, and assistant in tow, the star took charge of feeding her children as soon as she tossed her Stella McCartney bag on the couch. "Look, Emme, there's fruit salad. You love fruit," Lopez said to her daughter as she spooned pineapple, honeydew, and blueberries into a bowl. After just a few bites, the twins noticed the koi pond inside the studio and begged their mother to take them there. "Look at the fishies," she said. "Do you want to go over and play?" Their nanny stood guard while Lopez settled down for hair and makeup. The singer was thrilled to hear her single "Fresh Out the Oven," which will be released before her album Love? comes out, playing in the background, and sang along. Between shots, Lopez and her manager, Benny Medina, hovered over the studio's computer and discussed her website, jenniferlopez .com. With that out of the way, Lopez requested Cuban food for lunch and dug into a plate of rice, beans, chicken, and plantains followed by a mini red velvet cupcake. "This is one of the first times since the babies that I'm sitting down at a table to have a meal," she said. Toward the end of the shoot, Lopez greeted one of her fans, 18-year-old Yamarie Mayol, whose dream of meeting the star was arranged by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Mayol handed Lopez a bouquet of white lilies, and Lopez gave her a big hug and showed her around the studio. Before the star left for home, Lopez changed Emme's diaper, popped Dora the Explorer into the car's DVD player, and hit the road with her precious cargo buckled in tight. -jessica prince Lopez's look can be re-created with the following: Special Eyes Precision Eye Liner Pencil in Black Magic, Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadow in Lynx, and Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss in Dream On by Rimmel London.

Barnes applied pinky-peach blush, then gold highlighter on the tip of Lopez's nose, cheeks, and brow bones. 2. He brushed a burgundy shadow on her eyelids, rimmed them with black liner, and added mascara. 3. To keep her lips "natural and flesh-colored," the makeup artist used a gray-beige lip gloss.

GLOW TIME Makeup pro Scott Barnes has worked his magic on Mariska Hargitay and Jennifer Lopez, who graces the cover of his new book, About Face. Here's his strategy for keeping yoursk'm luminous throughout the winter. 1. SCRUB "Be super-careful when exfoliatingyourface," says Barnes. "Use products with round granules rather than sharp bits that will cut the skin. (Olay makes a gentle one.) Delicately work from the jaw lineupinacircular motion; rinse." 2. MOISTURIZE "Start with an eye cream (I swear by La Prairie's Skin Caviar) around the eye bone (not close to the eye and you can block your tear ducts). Use a heavy moisturizer at night and a lighter one for day, and don't forget the neck." 3. bronze "Starting off with a clean face, apply bronzing powder to temples, jawbone, cheekbones, and into the hairline, leaving the center of the face open. No powder around laugh lines, nose, or eyes and it adds darkness and ages you. Adda pretty touch of shimmer with my bronzing lotion." About Face, by Scott Barnes, $25; bn.com.

Would You Wear Pink Eyeshadow? byAbby Gardner

Jennifer Lopez is on the January cover of Allure . And while we could really care less about her workout regime or that silly "Louboutins " song, we were struck by this beauty shot from inside the magazine. It kind of reminded us of this Anja shoot mixed with bathing beauties from a 1940s movie. But what really stood out was the opaque pink makeup on her lids, in a good way. I love that her longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes, used what looks to be a cream shadow all the way from crease to corner. The effect is soft but it (TM)s definitely not subtle, like so many popular shimmery pink shades.

My question is, can this work on fair skin that doesn (TM)t have that bronze glow like J. Lo (TM)s so known for? I actually think it might work if you found the right shade. But then again I might just end up looking like I have some sort of eye infection.
Would you try it?

Jennifer Lopez: Allure Photo Shoot

Forget the rumors about requests for white flowers--Jennifer Lopez was all business and focused on reclaiming the spotlight at our cover shoot with photographer Michael Thompson at Lux Studio in New York City. See exclusive outtakes here. For more photos, as well as the profile "Bombshells Away," pick up the January issue of Allure, on newsstands December 22.

She's a personal fan of the genre: "It can be so bad," she laughs. "I'm always trying to get husband Marc Anthony to watch with me, and he's just all about, like, documentaries and solving who the killer is in those cop shows." - If there is a prevailing theme in Lopez's life, it is that she has willed herself to be a star through focus, drive, and hard work. She always knew she had gifts, but not extraordinary ones. "It wasn't like it was with Marc Anthony, who opened his mouth at age three and was blessed with a voice from God," she says of her husband. "I had to work at it, but I knew that once I had achieved it, people would respond to me in a certain way." - Toward the end of the shoot, Lopez greeted one of her fans, 18-year-old Yamarie Mayol, whose dream of meeting the star was arranged by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"She clearly knows a lot about fashion and always has the latest, coolest gear" says NYLON fashion director Joseph Errico, who styled our cover star. "We wanted to heighten her great personal style and add in a few key designers." What made the job even easier was the fact that Duff had recently collaborated with DKNY Jeans on a clothing collection, Femme for DKNY Jeans, so some of her designs-a denim motorcycle jacket and snakeskin leggings were mixed in with pieces like a red military sweater by D&G, a blue sequined skirt by Marc Jacobs, and a varsity jacket by Dsquared2 emblazoned with the letter D-for Duff. Photographer Marvin Scott Jarrett turned the shoot into a party of sorts, bringing a birthday cake for the starlet, who'd just turned 22. Duff was also pretty psyched to have her mom in townmostly, she admitted, to do her laundry. We can relate. beaut** note: Daniel Erdman gave Duffs hair a bit more of a rumpled, slept-in appearance, rather than her usual no-hair-out-ofplace look. To boot, makeup artist Scott Barnes went for "undone glamour," with nude lipstick and loads of eyeliner.

Hi guys! Back with another post finally! I entered a contest hosted by Scott Barnes to recreate a look that Jennifer Lopez was wearing on a issue of Glamour magazine. If I had to pick a celebrity's makeup to wear on a daily basis.. it'd be either Jennifer Lopez's or Kim Kardashian's. Their makeup ALWAYS looks ON POINT. Sooo flawless, ahhh I love it! Scott Barnes has done both of these ladies' makeup... especially Jennifer Lopez.. he's been with her 10+ years and yeah... shaoo! I love it. You can check out his website here: http://www.scottbarnes.com Here is the picture I based my look on: This is my take on it. I stuck to the neutrals, and played up on the bronzey/highlighted cheeks... which you can't really notice in the video, but you can tell in some of the pictures. I hope you guys like it!

Follow Us Follow Us On: December 15th, 20091 Comment Jennifer Lopez, We Love Your Allure Cover! Jennifer Lopez is back and flaunting her stuff in the January issue of Allure magazine.
The new mom (who showed up to the shoot with 5-inch Louboutins on and a baby on each hip) has a lot to be thankful for. She's got a brand new album, Love? coming out in January and a rom-com romp, The Back-Up Plan due out in March.

It's been a while since we've seen the Latina beauty in the spotlight since she gave birth to her two adorable twins Max and Emme last year but she's ready to be back where she belongs. "I was always in gymnastics and winning medals, or in track winning trophies, or in softball, or in shows as one of the top five girls. I was always getting noticed. And I liked it. I liked it, " Jennifer tells Allure.
But Jennifer hasn't always been such a fan of her intense paparazzi following, "It's cool for a while. You're happy because it's a part of knowing you're successful | and then, finally, it becomes destructive. "
So, how does the triple threat keep up her fly girl physique? "Part of my business is about being in shape and looking good. You can't lie to yourself about it. But I'm not the monster I used to be in the exercise department. You get past your 20s, you've got kids | you're kind of unmotivated. You want to be healthy and look good, but you want to do the leas amount to maintain that. I'm a big portion-control person, " Jennifer admits.
Want to get Jennifer's cover look? "I wanted to do a tawny, bronzy look, " says makeup artist Scott Barnes who created her gorgeous look.
* Apply a pinky-peach blush, then gold highlighter on the top of your nose, cheeks, and brow bones.
* Brush a burgundy shadow on eyelids and rim them with black liner and add mascara.
* Keep your lips natural with a gray-beige lip gloss. " Marta Topran

Scott Barnes Makeup Deserves an Encore!

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1810.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1810

Choosing a good brand of makeup is both a very personal choice and a choice that will determine your makeup buying habits for a long time to come. Many women who were avid users of Scott Barnes makeup line were deeply dedicated to always buying the same makeup components and using them daily, but found themselves in a panic when the line was discontinued due to souring relations with Scott's investors. The news hit hard and hit a vast majority of media outlets as Scott found himself searching for new investors to bring life back to his line. Fortunately his dreams have come true as he is now in the midst of re-launching the line to many women's incredible excitement...

FOTD: Biteki December 2009

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1804.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1804

I was inspired to replicate a look after reading Biteki's last issue of the year! I don't have any of the products on used on the model so I had to improvise with what I have. Imo, it has spring look about it. Maybe because pastel shades were used. And maybe because the eyeshadow palette used is from spring 2010? I used a pale gold shadow with Miracle Violet on my lids to substitute for Coffret D'or's Jewelcious Eyes in 05. Lined my upper lash line with a deep blue shade. Duochrome Green Gold is standing in for Majolica Majorca's Jeweling Pencil in GR522 as my bottom liner. Finished my eye makeup with two coats of Charming Angel mascara. Anyways, I'm very certain that Coffret D'or's Jewelcious Eyes in 05 (spring 2010) won't be released here for a long while ;D Swatches~ White light without flash White light with flash From the left: pale gold and deep blue from Majolica Majorca Trick on Powder GR750, Miracle Violet from Castledew Diacut Eyes (9 Colors) #902 Planet Shine Star and Coastal Scents Duochrome Green Gold. Pink cheeks with Scott Barnes Posh Chic Palette. Rosy pink lips with YSL Rouge Pur SPF8 Ndeg 146 Romantic Pink topped with a pale shimmery gloss. Stellar hunnie, I purposely used this lipstick because you wanted to see it on me =D Looking extremely warm and dark here~ Miss Friendz Century, does this remind you of a Disney character with the initials SW? ahaha I'm so taking my pictures with white light after this!

Beyond the Little Black Dress

WiSTYLE by Laura Kruty Beyond the Little Black Dn Step out of your clothing comfort zone this holiday season. By this time of year, your go-to little black dress probably is begging for a break. Instead of dragging it out of the closet one more time, think outside the (blacl box when it comes to your holiday parr)' attire. "Shine, shine, shine," says Laura Schara, fashion office manager and trend correspon fbr Macy's. "Grab anything with sequins: dresses, blazers, skirts, vests." ja Of course, there is a difference between having enough sparkle and full-on disco bal "If you're wearing a statement sequin dress, keep your accessories simple," SchafS says. "Let one item stand out and shine for the evening." To cover up while wearing a strapless or bare-shouldered cop or dress, Schara 13 the boyfriend blazer, a must-have piece for the season. "Or, grab a cropped motorcycle jacket and wear it over a dress," she says. "lis the season for dressing up, so get ready ro sparkle and shine. A simple outfit is instantly dressed up by one of these beaded and jeweled ftatement necklaces by lixit ($30 each) at JCPenne 22 The amount of sequins is just right on Silhouettes' Sequin Trim Blouse ($49). Available at silhouettes.com. A holiday party calls for equally festive shoes.

The neutral colors in the Brenda dress from frock! by Tracy Reese ($285) keep it from looking too circus-like. Plus, the banded waist creates a flattering silhouette. Available at thewhitedressshop.com. Kris Nations' Gem Drops earrings are a simple way to dress up any outfit. Available at krisnations.com. SHIMMER and SHINE Just like with clothing, there's a fine line between "just right" and far too much" when it comes to shimmer in makeup. "You don't want to look too metallic or wind up looking like the Tin Man," says celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes. Here are his tips for achieving that favorite celebrity look and a healthy glow. > When using shimmer, put it in "strategic places" only. Those include the eyelid, cheekbone, tip ofthe nose, inside comer of the eye and browbone. "That's it," Barnes says. "Anything beyond that, it's too metallic." If you're pale, use a champagne tone, and if you're medium- to darkcomplexioned, try a bronze tone with gold in it. Anything too pink on darker skin, and "it might make you look like you have a bit of a fever," Barnes says. His own Body Bling comes in Platinum and Original. > For a subtle glow, moisturize before using foundation, and mattify the T-zone with powder. > Barnes likes the fan brush for applying highlighter to the cheekbone. "It's a foolproof way to not go overboard," he says. "It's very delicate the way it handles it. " Older women don't need to avoid shimmer completely. "You just have to use it in moderation," Barnes says. But they do need to avoid anything too chunky or glittery so the look remains age appropriate. 9 24 INDIANAPOLIS WOMAN December 2009

My Travel Makeup Bag for December's Trip to Malaysia

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1790.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1790

My Travel Makeup Bag for December's Trip to Malaysia Posted by Tine

December 3, 2009 Four more sleeps and I'll be back in Malaysia. This time, I'd be back for almost a month! I'm beyond excited, and there's so much to do. To be more precise, there's so much to *ahem* shop.
This time, instead of lugging a whole lot of makeup, I've decided to bring less with me to Malaysia this time as I know I'll be bringing more home to Melbourne.

My makeup bag for the trip (a GWP from Kanebo):
Clinique Superfit foundation MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation
Smashbox primer
YSL Touche Eclat
Max Factor Pan Stik concealer
Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Neo mascara Flirt blush in Dapple Apple
Bloom Shadow Liners (double as eyeshadow as well) MAC eyeshadow in Crystal Frost (I bought this years ago, and it's still my go-to eyeshadow)
Bloom eyeshadow in Beige (used as a base)
Majolica Majorca eyeshadow in BL724
Scott Barnes eyeshadow in Urban Legend
Shu Uemura eyelash curler
Makeup brush roll
Ecotools retractable kabuki brush (to apply the powder foundation)
Not pictured - steel lash comb, tweezers and MAC makeup brush cleaner (decanted)

I'm actually only bringing the liquid foundation, stick concealer and all that eye makeup just for the wedding I'd be attending on the 12th. Other times, it would only be sunscreen, a light sweep of the powder foundation, and I'd be done.
Hoping to meet up with some beauty blogger pals when I'm back. Hmm would I be meeting up with you?

ADHA ZELMA JEWELRY - FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THEMSELVES...

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1786.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1786

I bet you didn't think I would be writing yet another entry before year's end. Well guess what? Fooled you!!! Seriously, this entry was honestly written in October. I was just putting on the finishing pieces so I can now release it. Just in time for the Christmas Holidays!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Adha Zelma. I had the wonderful fortune of photographing the new and exciting collection of Adha Zelma's jewelry known as "Rock and Bone". It's bold, vivacious, colorful and beautiful. It names means just that, the collection is an amalgamation of beautiful semi precious stones, animal bones, exotic feathers all in an amazing webbing of precious metals. It is eye catching as well as breathtaking and once you've seen an Adha Zelma creation, you will never forget it.... Especially for those who love to adorn themselves, Adha Zelma is a jewelry line that connects you to your power and sensuality.... When one does a search for Adha Zelma, the above quote will appear in one of the entries. What does that mean?... connects you to your power and sensuality....? I decided to find out more about this beautiful and amazing line belonging to Brooklyn's own Sheanan Bond and Cherise TrahanMiller. Upon reading the profile link in their website ( http://www.adhazelma.com/ ), you can get a gist of exactly what this dynamic duo is all about:... Adha Zelma is an audacious and distinctly international, jewelry line created by long time best friends Sheanan Bond and Cherise TrahanMiller. Inspired by world culture their line blends edge and elegance. The designs reflect a distinctively sexy yet sophisticated point of view. Adha Zelma experiments with traditional adornment concepts and reinterprets through a modern eye. Each piece is handcrafted and, therefore, each is one of a kind. Themes include earth, air, fire and water. Adha Zelma created the accessory line for MTV's Spring Break Fashionably Loud in Cancun, Creations have also been featured by Dirty Girl Productions, worn by Jennifer Lopez, Ananda Lewis, Rosie Perez, Keri Hilson and celebrity make-up artist Scott Barnes. All pieces are created in the Adha Zelma studio in Brooklyn, New York. Just what makes this jewelry amazing... Let's ask the designers. How long have you been designing jewelry and what is the process to how a Adha Zelma piece is designed? I have been designing since I was about eight years old. It all started with my first doll, who I thought was quite boring. So I deconstructed her clothes and created a pair of earrings and a necklace for her. My designs are centered on bringing elements of traditionalism into the modern world, while allowing spirit to flow organically through the designs. Sometimes there is a specific design in mind and other times there is not. As I see your colleciton grow and change you gone from "Rio" to "Aria" to "Rock and Bones" explain to us the transformation and the inspiration. Rio came about on a rainy day in Brazil, the foliage, Ipanema, carnival, the colors, the spices and the history. The city had truly transcended me to another place on earth and that collection is the manifestation of that trip. I was inspired by a simple raindrop falling from a leaf, the color of the ocean and the relaxed nature of the city. The transformation to Aria happened when I realized that a great deal of the pieces I design, sing when worn and are often quite light like air... hence, Aria. Just like arias over time, the collection moved from simple melodies into structured forms, which became the Aria collection. The latest collection, Rock & Bone was inspired by the Papua; each tribe has its own beliefs and the people recognize spirits, deities, totems and ancestors unique to their clans. The Papua use a great deal of teeth and bone in their jewelry, worn as a remembrance and as a way to attract spiritual power. The Jivaro was also a huge inspiration. A variety of myths have been passed down through the generations to explain the origins of the Jivaro people. In one story, the Andean foothills were subject to a severe flood, killing all but two brothers. When the waters receded and the brothers returned to their shelter, they found dishes of food laid out for them by two parrots. One of the brothers caught one of the gift-bearing parrots and married her. This is where the inspiration for the use of feathers came into play. To bring in a modern twist I started thinking about what we as a culture see as deities, the Gods and Goddesses of Rock, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Betty Davis. These are just a few artists who have influenced the collection. As a woman, when you look at jewelry (your own and others), what exactly draws you to it? Before written language, or the spoken word, there was jewelry. I am often lured by my desire to capture the essence of beauty, to posses its secrets, and to unlock its mysteries. It is funny because I am actually quite shy and what often draws me to a piece of jewelry is anything that draws attention to you. I look for jewelry that is bold, and that makes a statement. What determines the materials used in making your jewelry? I am interested in the balance of nature and explore material that represents earth, air, fire and water. I enjoy incorporating materials used traditionally for adornment like leather, feathers, snakeskin, minerals and bone, while mixing modern elements such as 24k gold electroplated Czech Charlottes. Some people find jewelry to be an afterthought to the completion of an outfit, however, Adha Zelma seems to be the outfit. What are your thoughts? Accessories are typically used as external visual symbols or for function. My designs are meant to be the complete opposite and form the fashion and anything else you choose to dawn is secondary to the statement. Complete this sentence... "Adha Zelma to me is... " Power and sensuality... It most certainly is. Rock and Bone Collection: Model: May Satch Photography: Dallas J.

Not All Highlighter Is Created Equal

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1772.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1772

Not All Highlighter Is Created Equal
Published on November 23, 2009 11:04 AM
There is shimmer, glitter, glow, dew, sparkle, glitz and glam, but where and when do they make sense? I'll break down what each one is and what is right for you depending on the look you're trying to achieve.
Day and night highlighters vary, as do the ones designed for oily skin and dry skin. Highlighters come in powders, bricks, sprays, creams and liquids, so there is a lot to choose from. If it's a daytime look you are going for, the best highlighters are shimmers, glows and dews.These girly adjectives just describe the effect they'll have on the skin after applying them. In the daylight, you want to apply these more subtle highlighters that will illuminate the skin and create a radiant effect without looking too overdone. They have a more pearlescent finish and don't scream disco ball.

For daytime, if you have dry skin, go for my Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Natural Highlighters in Pink Luster or Gold Luster . Tap these cream highlighters on top of cheekbones and on the brow bone as well as on the inner corners of the eyes for a very natural shimmer. Make Under Compact Dew is another fab cream highlighter that is great for normal to dry skin and is so sheer is looks like your skin is dewy fresh. You can actually apply this along the bridge of your nose and on top of cheeks for an almost-moist look.

If you have oily skin, stick with powder highlights and try sweeping on any of the highlight shades in my Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Instant Definition Eyes Shadow Palettes , which will leave the skin and eyes perfectly glowing. At night, you can take it up a notch and use loose powders on dry or oily skin to kick up the sparkle factor.
Try La Femme Sparkle Dust in numbers 5, 9 or 14, which will spark instant attraction. For a bit more glitz, try the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks . These have a bit more of a metallic finish and will definitely make a statement. Try the Era Rayz 24 Karat Body Spray for a glitzy take on body sparkle that won't rub off on your clothes. Hardcore disco divas should try Scott Barnes Body Bling for limbs that radiate. This is not for the faint of heart and be careful with your light colored clothing. If you are really young (like under 21), you can play with glitter but don't go crazy or you will look certifiable. Keep the glitter on one area of the face at a time try Make Up For Ever Glitters . These fun pots of jazz will keep you looking fun and festive. So there you go, all highlighters may not be created equal, but they all will get you noticed!

An Interview With Scott Barnes
Barnes, a makeup artist and founder of Scott Barnes Cosmetics, works with Jennifer Lopez and Kate Hudson.
In the winter, dark skin can take on a dull, greenish hue, while lighter skin can look pasty. But if you use just a hint of self-tanner and bronzer, it's easy to take the edge off.

Start below. Self-tanner tends to settle into the lines around the eyes and mouth and make women look older, which is never a good thing. To prevent this, put a small amount on the forehead, cheeks, and chin, and leave the middle bare. As you rub it in, work toward the center of the face in circular motions without using any additional product. Blend well around your hairline, jawline, and ears (and behind them, if you?re going to wear your hair up). Let your face dry and compare it to your chest. If your face is too light after the color has fully developed, apply another thin layer.

Think outside. Self-tanner tends to settle into the lines around the eyes and mouth and make women look older, which is never a good thing. To prevent this, put a small amount on the forehead, cheeks, and chin, and leave the middle bare. As you rub it in, work toward the center of the face in circular motions without using any additional product. Blend well around your hairline, jawline, and ears (and behind them, if you're going to wear your hair up). Let your face dry and compare it to your chest. If your face is too light after the color has fully developed, apply another thin layer.

Blend it well. To complete the look, apply foundation to the center of your face, where you used less self-tanner. Choose one that's a shade darker than you normally wear; it will make your skin look bright and well-rested. Next, sweep bronzer (I like Dior Bronze Essential Powder) over your temples, around your hairline, and under your jawline, working up toward your cheekbones to blend everything together. And for truly believable color, finish by brushing a touch of golden pink blush (Nars Orgasm is great) onto the apples of your cheeks.

Kelly Rowland's Dress Code

http://portal.burrellesluce.com/MediaContent/article.php/13979_NA1765.pdf?f=image&id=13979_NA1765

What are you wearing right now? Baggy, ripped jeans, a casual T-shirt, sandals and a hat. Who's your style icon? Audrey Hepburn, because she's just so glamorous and classic. What can't you live without? A comfy scarf because they can go with whatever you are wearing, always look good and keep you warm too. Describe the best outfit you have ever worn. I recently wore a little black dress which was sheer at the top but I just can't remember who it was by... What's in your wardrobe? A combination of designer and high street. My wardrobe includes a Roland Mouret dress, several pairs of jeans, a Ralph Lauren jacket with a cinched in waist. Probably about 150 pairs of shoes which include thigh-high Gucci boots and lots of Giuseppe Zanotti. What is in your make-up bag? Bobbi Brown foundation and Scott Barnes concealer, although I do like to let my skin breathe and be make-up free as much as possible. If you could live in any decade, style-wise which would it be? I'd be a Southern Belle from the Gone with the Wind era. They looked so feminine and beautiful. The pinched in waists, the glamour. How often do you look in the mirror? Honestly most of my looking in the mirror takes place when I'm in the bathroom. I'm not particularly vain at all.

MISSFALLON333- That means a lot, thank you so much: D
Trust me, I walk a fine line in worrying if I'm being helpful or just looking like I'm trying to be a know-it-all. I hope it doesn't come across like that at all. First and foremost I'm a mother and wife which is why I've been on the Nest for years. Makeup just happens to be my career which is why I am on this board, because it relates to me so I naturally gravitate to it. :) I love to help when I know I have something to add. It feels nice to know I'm not misunderstood. Thanks again!

I just want to second this statement.
My mom was a MUA, but hasn't been actively doing it for a few years (aside from working at a chanel counter here and there)... I've learned a lot from her over the years, but never really had much of an interest in MU until recently... I still get her opinions, but I know even though she uses a lot of stuff from Sephora, I know she doesn't know those brands as well as the lines they carry in the dept. stores. Since its the only place I shop for MU, I really like reading the reviews about those products, especially when they are *educational*

I don't think I have ever read a post of yours where I thought you sounded like a know-it-all. Your responses are always very genuine & informative.
11-17-2009 at 9:23 AM
Thanks EHayes!
I have a lot of respect for your mom because I lasted 2 days at a counter! I worked at Laura Mercier, did the training, and then didn't last on the floor. It may have just been that line since they had the "flawless face" but I'd have like 20 minutes to do 12 essential steps while still defining their own look, while selling a goal amount. Talk about stress! I remember the collective *GASP* from other artists when I cheerfully let someone go after her makeup was done without a sale. LOL! I knew I taught her everything about the line (well all that I knew for a short amount of time) and she was happy, but she was with her daughter and in a hurry and said she will be back for a particular couple of products another day. That was good enough for me. I was happy to teach something but realized that wasn't good enough for LM Gods. lol. We mutually just stopped calling each other after that. haha. I then also realized that all makeup artists have a place for them in the industry and my place is on a set! I also realized that it's easier for me to "naturally" sell things that I am really passionate about and not so easy for me to sell a line I've hardly used, in shades I don't even fully know yet!
So I guess my point, besides wanting to share my funny counter experience, is that any advice I give here is given from personal experience on either myself or by having used them on countless others. A lot of those lines happen to be at Sephora but some are also from "industry only" (mostly online) makeup stores whose main clientele are pro makeup artists, not consumers, so you can't get them at a major store. The loophole is you can order them w/o being a makeup artist online! shhh. lol!
Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by any of these lines I suggest. haha!

oh man - you just brought back a flood of memories for me of working at a makeup counter!
11-17-2009 at 10:23 AM
Mrs. Reaux, if it was anything like my short experience, I'm sorry! If it was like EHayes mom, then yay! :D lol 11-17-2009 at 10:38 AM Oh nooo... my mom hated the counters. She started it when I was about 12 or so when she had to start working again. Initially she loved it. Eventually she was a counter mgr at Clarins, liked that, then moved back to Chanel.
Then when I was 19 she moved to the middle of no where north jersey and stopped doing it bc the closest mall was forever away and there was no opportunity to continue her freelancing up there. Finally she went back, but the standing and catty counter antics got to her.. she lasted about a yr... this was 2 years ago or so. She's in her early 60s so its really not the ideal job for her with the standing etc. However, she really is talented and knows her stuff... its too bad there isn't something else she can do with it, but she really up in the sticks, she's tried stuff at salons, but the pay is dirt...
She did my wedding make up and it was perfect.
11-17-2009 at 10:48 AM
Aww you look gorgeous in your photos. She seems awesome!
That's also a worry I have when it comes time for me to put down the brushes. Maybe one day WAYYY LATER I will revisit having my own line. I did have one when I was so new and green but I ended up running the back end more than being the artist so I stopped. The only reason I think that I might be able to do it again in the long run is because my name is up next to Oscar Blandi and Scott Barnes on my agency board! If they can do it I can too! LOL (Sorry, that's my wishful thinking takling haha!) but truth is I'm really happy where I'm at now and am not looking that far ahead.. Again, maybe like 20 years down the road!
Maybe your mom can go into the back end of makeup when she wants to stop the counter work. With her experience I think she could at least start a local or online store of that nature and work for herself, even better, have people working for her! :D
11-17-2009 at 11:02 AM
Thank you! I should be getting the cd of all the images today or tomorrow, so I can't wait to post some of the pics to my blog.
I think my mom just kinda gave up with her options. Over the last 15 years, she's done counter work (mainly Chanel and Clarins, but did work a few other lines as well) and she dabbled in Mary Kay and some other line called Motives - which I think was part of a Pyramid scheme like "Market America" or something.
She's worked for a little bit at EA Red Door Spa, but the pay was a low hourly rate and the commission was little bc its hard to sell a lot of products when most people are going in for expensive spa treatments. She's also done some 'freelancing' work for a few photographers when she was still living at the Jersey shore and was closer to Philadelphia.
I think she would be great doing wedding make up, but again I think its just not consistent enough for her to do. Right now she's just working at a local bank because its a stable job with benefits, but blocking off Saturdays is impossible, since the hours are different each week...

Scott Barnes Talks About Face

January 13, 2010 - 10:00AM by BellaSugar

Among makeup artists, Scott Barnes's work is instantly recognizable: fresh, glowing women who exude confidence and usually sport a fierce (faux) tan. He's the man behind Jennifer Lopez's iconic look, the creator of Body Bling, and he's worked on everybody in the biz. Now, in a new book called About Face, Scott reveals his techniques and creates beautiful looks for women of all skin tones, textures, and ages.

To find out what the maestro had to say about getting a great look, just keep reading.

What's the best makeup look for Spring?

Almost ice-cream pale shades. If you're going to do eye shadow, it should be soft, and blushes should be really soft, too. It's a time of rebirth, so I say, "You know what? Let's look fresh."

What’s the best way for a woman who has minimal time to incorporate some of your principles into her daily makeup application?

There's a chapter in the book, with a woman named Linda, that's about exactly that. I always tell people that at minimum, the easiest way to pull your look together is by curling your eyelashes, then applying a beautiful mascara — I like Cover Girl. Use eye drops to really brighten up your eyes; one of my favorite brands in the world is Naphcon-A because they last up to 12 hours and they're lubricating, so they don't dry out your eyes like a Visine does. Then, throw on a lip gloss.

What are your tricks for getting a great eyelash curl?

I take the tips of my eyelash curlers and rub them back and forth between my fingers to make them a little warmer — it makes it easier than when they're cold. The Shu Uemura eyelash curler is the best curler on the market, because it has a round bumper as opposed to a square bumper, which crimps the lashes instead of curling them.

How do you fake perfect skin?

I'm always a big fan of using cream foundations. They seem to work best for me, and you get the best results from them. You can control the coverage where you need it in case you have some problem areas. It also has a tendency to keep that dewy, fresh look of perfect skin without being too heavy.

The book talks about your great facial relaxation techniques — do you have any other quick pressure points or massage strokes to help women get the Scott Barnes glow?

Underneath your eyes next to your nostrils is a really good one. Especially this time of year with all the dry heat, people tend to be a little more congested there. So pushing there really helps to open it and flush that, which will then take away some puffiness and make your face look a little bit thinner and more relaxed. We hold so much tension in our faces, and that has a tendency to make us look a little bit harder, so you always want to soften.

How did you decide to write About Face?

There's a quote in the book from Maya Angelou that says "Each of us has that right, that possibility, to invent ourselves daily. If a person does not invent herself, she will be invented." And that's really the truth. So you have to take control of your own beauty and your own health. That's what prompted me to write the book, as opposed to beauty for beauty's sake.

Scott "Body Bling" Barnes

By Man Snob Jim on January 11, 2010 12:00 PM

Admittedly, as a fashion and style writer, I don't often get the chance to interview beauty experts. But when I heard that Scott "Body Bling" Barnes was releasing About Face - Amazing Transformations Using the Secrets of the Top Celebrity Makeup Artist, a new book 240-page coffee table book featuring 20 dramatic makeovers, I was immediately drawn to check it out. After all, this is the makeup guru--artist's artist is more accurate--that was responsible for Jennifer Lopez's stunning looks in the movie "Maid in Manhattan" and music video "Jenny From the Block," two of my all-time favorite on-screen productions. In advance of the book's official debut next week, when longtime clients Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Mariska Hargitay will host a party in Barnes's honor in New York City, I chatted with the beauty expert on a bevy of topics. Herewith, his thoughts:

What's your personal makeup resolution for 2010?

"Honestly, I've been really getting into more fantasy stuff. I've always had a love for that but at this point in my career I feel like I can break into it a little bit more, which is fun. I've gotten a lot of people calling me for [work on] videos!"

What should be the everyday woman's makeup resolution for 2010?
"I always tell people to really find out what looks best on you--it's like finding that perfect little black dress or that perfect shoe. Sometimes, if it's a classic thing, it becomes a staple within your wardrobe--and I look like makeup much like a wardrobe. Trends come and go, and you want to implement a few trends here and there, but you don't want to be a walking trend report. Sometimes too much of a good is too much. Sometimes simplicity is sexier. A beautiful woman never goes out of style."

Why did you want to write this book?
"The whole point of why I wrote this book is that it's not new information--it's just lost information. We've gotten to a place where everybody's about being too thin or not thin enough or all this plastic surgery and I think it's ok to embrace what you have inside of yourself and here are some tips on how to make the best part of yourself come out. It's about beauty for purpose. What are you going to do once you have the whole world's attention--or just your office's? It's about putting yourself together and having confidence and strength. It's about using the power of your beauty properly and be able to go after one's goals in life."

In terms of a personal connection, the book is dedicated to your brother.
"My brother, John, unfortunately passed away of melanoma two years ago. He would've been 32 this year. It's one of the most curable cancers in the world if it's caught early enough--but if it's not caught, it can be one of the most aggressive cancers. That's the reason why I create really great products for bronzing; I'm really known for glowy, bronzy skin. I tell people to stay out of the sun, and it's ironic my brother would die of skin cancer. You can fake your hair, your boobs--so fake your tan!"

What's the biggest misconception about makeup?
"It's funny--I always have women go 'I can't do that' or 'I'm afraid of it' and forget that it's not permanent. Makeup comes off. It's a lipstick; you're not buying a car. Women tend to get uptight when it comes to makeup, but you just need to play with it to get it right. I answer questions all day with women saying, 'I don't look as pretty as Jennifer Lopez or Penelope Cruz,' but I remind them that they're real people to. You just take what's really beautiful and accentuate it!"

Speaking of J.Lo, how did you fortify her makeup during her recent New Year's Eve performance, when she performed outdoors in Times Square in the freezing cold with rain and snow falling?
"There were so many variables going on that night! The makeup had to be much more dramatic and impactful because there's an ensemble accompanying her. It can't get lost in translation. Jennifer was performing so she's heating up and sweating--but I have this secret product I developed that I can't reveal but I put it underneath her foundation and nothing moves. You could go swimming and nothing would change! The trickiest part was when she had the catsuit on, what to do with the eyes. I didn't want her eyes to look puny but I didn't want her to look like a drag queen either! I did her makeup at the hotel and then during the rehearsal, she sang in ski clothes and I realized she needed more makeup so I turned the dial up on her makeup by 100!"

What are some of your favorite beauty products out there right now?
"As far as skin care, I use primarily La Mer for the body and La Prairie for the face--they're fantastic. I'm also a big fan of François Nars; he has really amazing products that deliver. I always tell people there are four things you have to have in your life: a Shu Uemura eyelash curler (it curls the lashes really well and rounds, not creases, the eyelash); some eye drops; mascara and lip gloss. You can go anywhere with these four things and look awake!

Does spending that extra 5 minutes each morning truly make a difference?
"Huge difference! We're faced with pressure everyday, everywhere we go, so when you take those 5 minutes to feel really good about yourself you feel empowered--and it's infectious. It's very much a pay-it-forward situation."

How important are hair and wardrobe when it comes to your beauty regimen?
"It's really important because if your face is done right, sometimes the hair may be off but it'll still work. Look at Audrey Hepburn--for years all she wore was jeans and a turtleneck and she was stunning. Your face is what everybody connects with. Wardrobe is important but it's not the deciding factor."

You've worked with so many celebrities at so many memorable moments in their lives. What is your most memorable to date?
"Recently I worked with Celine Dion on a Christmas special and I loved her. It is the craziest to be in the room with somebody who, when they warm up their voice, the hairs on the back of your neck stand straight up! We flew down to Orlando for this special and they let us use the inside of Cinderella's castle for her dressing room! There were Disney employees who'd worked there for 14 years that had never been in there. We worked inside one of the castle's peaks and you could see the entire kingdom! It was stunning! We were just waiting for the 'mice' to come out!"

Are there certain makeup techniques you won't use on specific celebs?
"It varies, but the great thing about makeup is that if it doesn't work, you wash it away. That's the fun of it: there are no rules! Ten people can pick up the same eyeliner and work it ten different ways."

What beauty advice do you have for women who have lost their job and are looking to get back into the job market?
"With the Body Bling, I originally had it for $48, but with the economy, I repackaged it into a tube for $38. Since the packaging was less expensive for me to manufacture, I was able to drop the price $10. I'd rather people enjoy the product than charge them extra for housing the product. I tell women they're going to be ok and that we're all going to stick together. It's about keeping a positive attitude and feeling beautiful because that inner glow keeps you strong. You don't want to be overlooked; maintain your strength, beauty and grace."

What one makeup idea or trend you hope died with the end of 2009?
"I always hated the brown lip liner thing. That, for me, and the really penciled-in eyebrows, I truly hated."

Skin Deep: Using Beauty to Do Good

By HILARY HOWARD

THE theme of “About Face,” the 240-page coffee table book that features 20 dramatic makeovers and goes on sale this month ($25), is that beauty should be used for “purpose instead of for vanity’s sake,” said its author, Scott Barnes, in a recent interview.

The new book by Scott Barnes. Mr. Barnes, a makeup artist who has worked with Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others, cited the Old Testament story of Queen Esther as an example of the power of beauty. Esther, an orphaned Jewish peasant, learned how to embellish her looks in the court of King Ahasuerus of Persia, also known as Xerxes. She was ultimately selected as his queen. “Her beauty saved a race of people,” he said, as he described her role in halting a planned massacre of Persia’s Jews.

The idea of using beauty for the greater good is consistent throughout the project. “Every celebrity I chose for the book has a foundation or is involved in a foundation,” said Mr. Barnes, who selected 4 celebrities and 16 women who aren’t famous to make over for the book, including Katherine Albrecht, a privacy expert and activist, and the actress Mariska Hargitay, who started the Joyful Heart Foundation, which supports survivors of sexual assault.

WORKING IT The makeup artist Scott Barnes emphasizes the power of beauty in his new book. Photo by: Delaney & GitteLooking good brings respect, Mr. Barnes said. “You show up in nice clothing at the airport and they’re nice to you,” he said. “You show up in sweats and they’re like, ‘The kiosk is over there.’ ”

Mr. Barnes, who trained as a painter at Parsons, got his start in makeup mixing raw pigments. “I started working with them just like I used to mix all my oil paints in a grinding glass,” he said. Soon, Julianne Moore was requesting a jar. Then Lucy Liu, then Jennifer Lopez. From there his makeup career soared.

Although Mr. Barnes doesn’t run a foundation himself, he is working to establish one for melanoma. Mr. Barnes, who is renowned for playing light off the skin, and whose shimmering lotion, Body Bling, is popular among celebrities, had a younger brother, John, who died of melanoma at age 30. The book is dedicated to him.

Beyond Beautiful's Exclusive Interview w/ Scott Barnes!

PhotobucketScott Barnes talks to Beyond Beautiful!
------------------------------------------------------------

Scott Barnes is a busy man! With the upcoming release of his first book, About Face, the re-launch of celebrity favorite Body Bling, and the upcoming re-design of his Scott Barnes makeup line, it's no wonder he was out of breath from running through the streets of New York when Beyond-Beautiful.org talked to him last week.

As we chatted, we found out that the Black Eyed Peas and Christmas songs currently occupy his iPod playlist and that he loves old Hollywood glamour. He draws inspiration from muses like Elizabeth Taylor, Sofia Loren, and unquestionably Jennifer Lopez.
