Girl Crush - Nina Dobrev

Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder from "The Vampire Diaries"
I don't know if you are, like me, anxiously awaiting the return of "The Vampire Diaries" on the CW next week but, if not, you need to get on it.  You can spend the next week and a half catching up on your DVDs in preparation for Season 4 in the October - trust me - it's amazing. 
So, I am kind of in love with Nina Dobrev who plays both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on said vampire programming - her makeup, her hair (especially her hair) - I have a serious girl crush.  Let's look at some pictures of her :):

One of my favorites - super pretty clean makeup, lots of lashes, brown soft smoke and peachy/soft nude lip

Red lip with bedhead hair - not my fave top but she still looks good

Super straight hair

Love this hair and the makeup - she is very into a neutral brown smoky eye

soft and fresh

She looked so pretty at the Emmy's!  A little soft wing on the eyeliner and sideswept hair.

Kind of messy hair with peachy/pink lips and dewy skin

Departure with a black/charcoal smokey eye, nude/pink lip and fishtail braid

Can you handle this hair?!  Beautiful! 

Super matte skin with a pop of color on the lip

Hair half up with more blush than usual - does not seem to be a lipgloss fan

Great blowout and approachable makeup

Girl Crush - The Ladies of the Democratic & Republican Conventions

I liked this pic because they're friendly....and they look like they're in a Broadway show
 So, we are going to be seeing a lot of their husbands in the next couple of months but I thought it would be fun to see the glam routine of Michelle Obama and Ann Romney.
Michelle seems to prefer a deep eye with a soft lip while Ann prefers a strong lip with a soft eye.  Michelle also preferred a print at the convention while Ann went with solids.  Both rock a defined brow at every event.
My husband would like to point out that they both have a bang that has a flip on the right - see, there CAN be unity in the parties!


LOVE this!!  Fake lashes, matte smoky eyes, soft lip, neutral lipliner with flesh toned lipshade and a strong brow.




Even more smoky with serious lashes and a little more of a pink lip
LOVE the statement lip with strong liner and soft matte shadow!



Her hair looks really pretty in this one.


No matter who looks cuter make sure to vote in November!!*

*All of the pictures of Ann Romney were approved by my Republican mother :)

Pretty Ladies at the Emmys



Ginnifer Goodwin, Julianne Moore, Sofia Vegara, Kat Denning and Heidi Klum
 The ladies turned it out this evening at the Primetime Emmy Awards.  There was a lot of matte lipstick, natural makeup, breezy hair and the occasional bold lip going on. 

Here are the Blondes:

Claire Danes (love her hair color!) with liner in the waterline top and bottom with a nude lip and a bun in the oven.

Kayley Cuoco with a beachy braid and a matte lip.

Elizabeth Ross with a rare glossed lip and soft eyeliner

Emily VanCamp with a seriously fresh face and soft hair

Hayden Panettiere wearing a tousled bun, soft eyes and, you guessed it, a matte lip!

Heidi Klum rocking tons of lashes, bronzer and Farrah Fawcett hair (and a nude matte lip).

Love this!  Julianne Hough working a strong brow, soft smoky brown eye and beautiful hair (and a matte lip - just saying).

Lindsay Pulsipher with striking eyeliner, coral blush and a super cute Heidi braid (and a, ahem, matte lip).

A shiny lip!  Thank you Melissa Rauch!!


Love her!  Amy Poehler  looking beautiful with glowy skin and a soft smoky eye.
The Redheads (who all have matte lipstick on just in case you were wondering):

Come on!  Julianne Moore looks stunning with her statement lip and rows of lashes.

A berry lip and slate smoky eye work beautifully with Christina Hendricks' fair skin.

Jane Levy is channeling her inner Emma Stone with her side-parted updo, lots of liner and rosy cheeks.
Soft cheeks and fully lined eyes look ethereal on Kate Mara.


The Brunettes:

60's liner, subtle blush and a nude lip work with Ginnifer Goodwin's awesome dress.

Emilia Clarke with one of the few non-smoky eyes of the evening and a messy pony.
How pretty does Ariel Winter look?!  Love the strong brow, smoked out lid, glowy cheeks and - yep - matte lip.

Jessica Pare looking like a 50's Barbie Doll with her winged liner and red lip - love!

Kristen Wiig working rocker hair and kohl-rimmed eyes.

Allison Williams with inner eye shimmer - totally support.

Can you believe that Lucy Lui is 43?!  Me neither!  Love her hair, her eyes, the whole package.

Michelle Dockery with glistening skin and a crimson pout.

Mindy Kaling pulling the hunter green from her dress on her eyes and staying trendy with a merlot lip.

I would like to spend a day as Padma Lakshmi - love her hair, love the peachy cheeks and love the glow on her skin.

Zooey Deschanel working her trademark bang, strong lip and eyeliner.

Mermaid waves, a cat eye and a burgandy lip keep Sofia Vegara looking ravishing as usual.

OB.SESSED. - with Sarah Hyland's hair, her eyes, gleam on her cheeks and - one more time! - her matte lip.
