Happy Birthday Gwyneth Paltrow! Her Beauty Philospohy

A Very Happy Birthday and Salute to one of my favorite actresses and Beauty Icon Gwyneth Paltrow!

Her unique stunning look and down-to-earth Charm had her once engaged to Brad Pitt. Now happily married to Cold Play's lead singer Chris Martin, Gwyneth is the epitome of class and beauty balancing career, family, and fun!When her and her husband aren't hanging our with their best friends Jay-Z and Beyonce, Gwyneth is working on her blog and cookbook!

Her & B make an odd couple of Best Friends! But it works!

Gwyneth often speaks on the concept of 'Real Beauty' here are my favorite quotes:

"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick."

"People ask me my beauty secrets and I say blush and a great girdle" -I love it! However, she certainly doesn't need a girdle with that stomach after having two kids! AMAZING

 "I don't know who decided that skinny was more appealing than not skinny. It seems arbitrary". -I AGREE!

Orange Crush! How to Wear the New "IN" Color


The Trend : Orange makeup, and I am totally diggin it. A lot of women are afraid to try orange, because they think they couldn't pull it off, which is ironic because shades of orange are flattering to every skin tone!

Orange faces were all over the runway this year,and will be the look for fall and next spring.

 Orange Looks
 How to do orange right:

Tip 1: Find your perfect shade. There are light peaches, sunsets, rich bright textures, matte, frosty, and glossy. Go to you favorite makeup store and have fun experimenting!

Tip 2: You can put it anywhere! The awesome thing about orange is that its not purely a lip, cheek, or eye color you can wear it all over in different ways. Here are some of my favorite looks!

Beyonce' Launches Pulse & The Last Season of Desperate Housewives Premieres !!!!

    Yesterday, was a big day for beauty and a big day in Hollywood. My favorite celebs stepped out with makeup at a perfect 10!

Mommy- to -Be, Beyonce's face is glowing rosy, and flawless at the event she hosted to launch her new fragrance Pulse. Her makeup artist, whom is also her cousin did a stellar job! Of course, Beyonce had an amazing outfit to match the style and shape of her new scent. She named the perfume Pulse, because she said it's what she thinks of when she performs. It's "exciting" and "electrifying" like when she's on stage! I can't wait to try it out.

The next big news is bitter sweet for me. My all-time favorite show Desperate Housewives hosted its very last premiere. The new season launches this Sunday, the 25th and they have announced it's time to kiss the girls good-bye, as this is the final season. 

I have laughed, cried, and cheered a long with the women on Wisteria Lane for years, and I will be glued every Sunday at 9, until the end. With 8 wildly successful seasons, the show has had a good run, especially after adding Vanessa Williams to the cast. Her makeup artist of 16 years, Kate Best, once again did a phenomenal job. I got the inside scoop.

Here Vanessa Williams holds her 6 inch heel to her face to show how perfectly Kate matched the shades! LOVE IT!

Custom Made Fuchsia!

Vanessa Williams and the Fabulous Marcia Cross in the limo! All Made Up!
            Vanessa's Shade is very similar to my favorite shade I rocked in the beginning of the summer: Girl About Town, by M.A.C.

Makeup Monday: The 2011 Emmy's Best Makeup!

Happy Makeup Monday Beauties!

           Last night, beauty triumphed on the red carpet as the stars came down for the annual prime time Emmy awards. Here are some of the best looks:

One of my idols, actress and activist, Kerry Washington looks absolutely stunning with out-stretched lashes, glowing skin, and a powerful red lipstick. Kerry Washington prides herself on living as a political activist and calls herself a "responsible American"choosing to drive a hybrid, and live a simpler life to protect the environment.

 She's raised money to help stop violence against women, lobbied Congress for more arts funding and campaigned for President Barack Obama. Now that is TRULY BEAUTIFUL to me. We Salute you Kerry!

The lady in red!
To get the look: Try Stila Illuminating foundation, Revlon Fire&Ice lipstick, and NYX Auto brow pencil.

Another beauty on the red carpet last night was the fabulous and interesting Gwyneth Paltrow. After two kids, Gwyneth can still look great in a sexy lace mid-drift! and her face is fabulous! This is not the first time Gwyneth rocks the no-makeup, makeup look. It just works for her.

To get the look: Elizabeth Arden's loose bronzing powder, and Benefit High Beam, both have a natural  touch of pink for a rosy glow.

The gorgeous SofiaVergara wore a beautiful polished look to balance out her loud and over-the-top character she plays on television. Loving her look!

Lipstick and Jewlery perfectly compimets her skin and the dress!
To get the look: Her celebrity  makeup artist Kayleen McAdams, who represent CoverGirl used all Cover Girl products,including Lash Blast Volume mascara and Lip Perfection in Rapture.

Hope this brightened your Makeup Monday! For more Emmy's Beauty looks, products and tips follow @LauraLoveBeauty on twitter.

How to Look Hot on a Rainy Day! Beauty&Fashion tips for wet weather

   All right! I know my east-coast beauties in particular are singing  "Rain, Rain go away!", as it continues to pour-down daily. Rain is always associated with grey and gloomy, but us movers and shakers can't let it be so. Just because the weather is not beautiful, doesn't mean you shouldn't be! Here are a few tips on how to be a chic ray of sunshine during the wet season.......

Tip 1: Just Add Lipstick

 I swear this tip is 50% physical and 50% mental ! Adding a richly-colored powerful lipstick or gloss always gives me a dash of extra confidence and a mental boost to keep away those rainy day blues.  Endorsed by Ms. Sasha Fierce herself, also known as Beyonce', L'oreal Infallible Lipwear will look great and last long know matter the weather.You can get these at any drug store for under $12.00 bucks! 
                                                                                     Doesn't that  just put you in a glossy mood?
L'Oreal's great new fall colors to beat the rainy day blues.Pair 1 of these with waterproof mascara and waterproof eyeliner and you can't loose!
Tip 2:  Go ahead, spray away! 
Well it could be frizz serum, hairspray, or a mix of the two. I know hair can get frizzy and you want that perfect ponytail, but avoid largely water-based products  products like hair puddings, jam, and creams on rainy days. These can actually make the humidity hit your hair worse, and will drip into your face possibly causing break-outs. Experts recommend treating your hair with oils and serums on rainy days, using a strong hair-spray to keep it looking chic and neat. Again L'Oreal comes through for us, with their Elnett Extra-Hold spray. Used by the hair-stylist of  Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Hudson, and Eva Longoria, for just $14.00 it will keep every hair in place. Stress over your tresses no more.

Tip 3: A good trench goes along way 
Harry Potter star Emma Watson looks magical in her trench coat! I wonder which spell she used?
Timeless trench coats are never going out of style. You can look elegant and effortlessly chic, rocking a trench coat on a rainy-day. Camel-colored trench coats have been all over the runways this season, but you don't have to spend a fortune. Vintage and Thrift shops are the best places to find classic trench coats for less! Pair your trench with a great silk scarf and/or a cool umbrella to really set it off.  


These cool umbrella designs and are all at Urban Outfitters
for $25 or less!

Tip 4: These Boots Are Made for Walking
In high school, I was known for my  bright pink rain boots! I can't stress enough that great rain boots are an awesome investment. You can brave the weather with no fear, feel comfortable and still look fashionable. There are so many colors, patterns, and styles to choose from.
Heels, stripes, wedged, round-toe, pointed,  animal print and more
 I just want them all!

Wear these sexy heeled Hunter rain boots and  it might just be raining men before the end of the day!

Use these tips, and you'll be singing in the Rain!

Stick-On Eyeliner! What will they think of next ?!?!

         Greetings Gorgeous!             
                 Not only is today a special Makeup Monday because its the Labor day holiday, but today I bring you breaking beauty news: Eyeliner has been streamlined!
One of Dior's featured looks
                                             Leave it to Dior cosmetics, to move the future of beauty forward with stick-on eyeliner.It's true, one of most women's main beauty blunders is that  they don't have a sturdy hand to create the bold-lined looks without the help of a makeup artist, or their  eyeliner smudges throughout the day. But how much would you pay to have the perfect lined-look?

For $55 buck Dior's innovative Velvet Eye Kit of graphic stick-on eyelines, don't smudge, don't move, and can be re-used over- and- over again. Talk about high-tech! The kits feature several cool eyeliner looks like winged, cat-eye, and they even have some be-jewled stick-ons with tiny colored crystals, for the show-girl in us all.
I have to admit that I'm a bit skeptical about how long they will last before peeling off, but then again it's Dior, and they don't half-step.
When beauty, conveinience, and art combine like this I get quite excited, and I wonder what more is to come! Dramatic eyeliner is so in this season.

L'Oreal Paris makeup artisit for Project Runway

 To really set it off try L'Oreal Hip (high intensity pigments) Kohl eyeliner
At any drugstore of Target for $8.99  this amazing long-lasting liner is easy to apply and adds so much pop. I wore the burgundy color recently and got a ridiculous amount of compliments. Moreover, all of the shades are designed to compliment natural eye-colors with divine pigmentation. A must have!

If anyone gets to the stick-on eyeliner before I do, let me know and stay tuned for reviews.

Happy Makeup Monday, Enjoy your  holiday weekend, and Always Be Beautiful!
