The Holidays are upon us! Everyone is gearing up Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals, but I’m here to tell you about one of my favorite gifts to give this season (that is always a great price) – the TEMPTU system. TEMPTU is the first easy-to-use, professional quality, home airbrush system. This innovative professional airbrush makeup system has changed the way women get ready in the morning. I don’t know much about your morning routines, but mine is constantly changing. I’m on a set time schedule and my makeup takes up most of my time. What I love about temptu spray makeup is that it cuts your makeup routine in half. I’m always in search of a product that helps me achieve beautiful, flawless skin and temptu makeup does just that.
TEMPTU is known for creating some of the most iconic faces in fashion, music, film and television. TEMPTU’s Airbrush Makeup Kits and patented AIRpod are professional products that were created to bring professional expertise and products direct to your home. Top entertainment names like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Madonna, Beyonce, Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Kidman, and fashion brands like Prada, Christian Dior, BCBG Max Azria, Helmut Lang, and Herve Leger have all used temptu and consider it a go-to makeup.
So how do you use a TEMPTU foundation machine?
STEP 1: Press the Power Button on top of your AIRcompressor. You’ll feel air flowing though the tip of the AIRpod.
STEP 2: Turn the Dial to 3 o’clock – the optimal setting for a flawless AIRpod Foundation application.
STEP 3: Hold your AIRbrush like a pencil, pointed downward, 4-6 inches away from face. Gently pull back on the Trigger and move in small circular motions.
STEP 4: Stop & Look. Repeat STEP 3 until you achieve your desired level of coverage.
Temptu airbrush makeup kits retail at $149, but today you can get your hands on one for 20% off. Use code DJPWL8DD. Still not convinced spray on makeup is right for you? Enter Below for a chance to win your very own Temptu Signature Airbrush Makeup Kit (system, foundation, blush, and highlighter)!

Ah! The sweet smell of fall--the pumpkin spiced lattes, crisp air, roasted marshmallows and apple cider. Best of all, it is the perfect season to unleash your incredible palette of womanly scents. While the light and airy feel of body sprays and oils suit the summer season best, there’s nothing better than a long-lasting perfume for the fall. And, you can never have too much of the right perfume. After all, New York City public transportation can get a tad bit smelly, why not lighten the mood, literally? Here’s the rundown on seven enticing scents you must get your hands on for Fall 2013.

The dynamic Elizabeth and James designer duo, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, are introducing two distinctive fragrances for her.
Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen’s Dualstar Entertainment Group entered into an exclusive fragrance license agreement with Kendo, a strategic brand development and partnership division of SEPHORA. Celebrating both intimacy and individuality, the twins’ creative direction helped developed two unique scents that reflect the two: Elizabeth and JamesNirvana WHITE and Elizabeth and James Nirvana BLACK. Containing alluring floral musks with notes of peony, the WHITE is perfect and light enough for the day. The sensual, woody scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla in the BLACK are enticing enough for the night.
“Everyone wants to experience their nirvana,” stated Mary-Kate Olsen. “Ashley and I understand everyone’s nirvana is different so we’re asking our Elizabeth and James girl, “What is your nirvana?”
“Our nirvana is reflected in the juice, bottle, packaging and campaign imagery for Elizabeth and James Nirvana and we’re excited to share it with the SEPHORA client,” said Ashley Olsen.
The architectural lines, rich gold accents and distinctive texture of the bottles, designed by Ashley and Mary-Kate, are stylistically inspired by vintage jewelry and mirror the design elements seen throughout the Elizabeth and James brand.
“We’re excited to partner with Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen to create Elizabeth and James Nirvana WHITE andElizabeth and JamesNirvana BLACK, and bring their unique fashion point of view to life through fragrance,” said Michael McGeever, SEPHORA SVP and GM, Kendo. “The Elizabeth and James brand captures timeless chic with a modern edge, a concept that resonates extremely well with our clients and establishes the foundation for a strong beauty brand.”
Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrances will each be available in three different sizes- 30 ml ($55), 50 ml ($75) and a rollerball ($22). The fragrances will launch exclusively at all SEPHORA stores and Sephora.com January 2014.
Get ready: Disney just revealed the official poster for their summer film, MALEFICENT featuring Angelina Jolie. I know I’m not alone when I say I’m extremely excited to see how this one turns out. The film is set to release on May 30, 2014. Stay tuned for the trailer debuting tomorrow at 9am EST!
Also, is anyone else wondering what red lip she’s wearing? I’m on it.

It’s no scandal, but the ABC-drama star Kerry Washington has been announced as the newest spokesperson for NEUTROGENA, the number one dermatologist recommended skincare brand.
NEUTROGENA prides itself on making a difference in women’s lives, and for the first time ever they have decided to make Washington’s Brand Ambassador role go beyond the traditional duties. The starlet will act as a creative consultant to the brand, sharing her valuable insights with marketing, research and development, and retail teams. “The more I learned about the company’s values, guiding principles, and commitment to quality, the more I realized that Neutrogena is so much more than your average beauty company.

As a creative consultant, I will be able to have a real voice inside this amazing company, which is a tremendously exciting endeavor,” says Kerry Washington.
Washington joins beauty icons Jennifer Garner, Julie Bowen, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts, Diane Lane and Sandra Echeverria as a member of the NEUTROGENA family.

We can’t all be Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive”, but we can surely look like her thanks to Oribe. The November issue of this men’s magazine showcased the beautiful Scarlett Johansson on the cover; the bombshell actress snagged the “Sexiest Woman Alive” title for a second time! Instead of going for the typical seductive look, Johansson “wanted something more natural”, said Oribe of the inspiration for the style. Oribe Hair Care took Johansson’s movie-star hair to the next level to create a look that was described as an “effortless style and texture that’s very current.”
Luckily for us, this all-naturalè look is an easy hairstyle to replicate, and Oribe has provided us with five easy steps:
- Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to damp hair and power dry so that the hair has movement.
- Then, add Thick Dry Finishing Spray and hit it with the blowdryer again for fullness.
- Using a 2-inch curling iron, enhance natural movement by curling various sections of the hair- some big, some small- to create good texture while avoiding a perfect wave.
- Next, work with hair around the face to create a sexy face-framing texture.
- Finish with Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray for flexible hold and to prevent frizz.
