Just in time to get ready for your Spring Break, the Kardashian's launch a new line of self tanners called  Kardashian Sun Kissed  next month. 

According to Women's Wear Daily the line is priced between $12.99 and $19.99 and includes 4 products exfoliator, sunless lotion or spray and bronzer. 

A tan makes everyone feel like they look skinnier, but we all know how dangerous the sun is to our skin so I love that they are promoting sunless color. Promoting fake color I can get behind, but I wish they would have gone a little less Fake in their photo - so very, overly photoshopped don't you think?

I think everyone loves a bargain, but when it comes to my skin I usually never cheap out, but sometimes we don't need to spend a fortune to find a great product that works. So many times I have been disappointed by products that I've spent too much for. Sound familiar? Well you and I are not alone; here's the science behind it  

A study from Duke University published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people believed that a more expensive placebo pill actually worked better just because it cost more. It seems that the more expensive a product is the more convinced you are that it must be better. 

Aging happens, to all of us ... our fibroblast that produces collagen and elastin lose it's zing, but you can't start fighting the signs of aging soon enough, and there is never a better day to start than today. A couple ingredients you should look for that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles are amino-peptides and hyaluronic acid. That's where Olay's Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream can help. It contains both, and is endorsed by Good Housekeeping over luxury, $250 super-creams. It's also won Allure's Reader Choice pick in 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008.

At $25, Olay's Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream proves that you don't always get what you pay for, in this case you get sooooo much MORE!


Side-parted, retro waves were one of the prettiest hair trends we saw on the red carpet. It was an old Hollywood glamour look that you should expect to see alot more of! 

The trick is getting your hair to look sleek and smooth, but still have tons of volume like Megan Fox and Reese Witherspoon.

Brazilian Blowout is a company known for taming the frizzies and it has just launched a whole new line of Volume products that also work on fine, straight hair too to help you get those Veronica Lake waves!

Their Body Boost Powder is the perfect product to help you create this look. You just sprinkle the little snowflakes in dry hair and it helps lift the hair by creating a little distance between each strand. Sometimes when we start with super clean and soft hair, holding a curl is nearly impossible; but this Boost Powder texturizes it just enough allowing it to hold the curl. Most of the time when I am booked as a model for a job the client requests that I arrive with "clean hair and face" but there are times when I have been asked to arrive with "dirty" hair ... that usually means an up-do; for better holding curls and fullness.

Watch the Red Carpet -Celebrity Beauty Secrets video where I featured Brazilian Blowout's Boost on Phoenix's Arizona Midday here:

You can use this Body Powder Boost as a dry shampoo too, but I like it everyday for volume, and use it more like a styling product. I highly recommend this whole line, my hair has never looked fuller!


Celebrating St Patrick's Day seems to always include a green drink, or two ... and that all adds up to a whole lot of empty calories. The modelTini™ is a drink, officially defined in the Urban Dictionary 

This Shamrocker modelTini ™ will help you keep that skinny minnie waist line and let you celebrate the Irish holiday in style!

Of course, you can add green food coloring to any drink to make it green, but I like to be more authentic than that (Plus that green food coloring quickly turns your teeth green too). This combination of ingredients turns your drink into a chartreuse, neon-glow green naturally.

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Blue Gatorade - Glacial freeze flavor (replacing electrolytes you're drinking away)
  • 1/2 oz Diet Red Bull (To give you the energy to keep up on St Patty's Day with those Irishmen)



Awards season is over but we saw a lot of celebrities stepping out onto the red carpet in dresses with thigh high slits. Angelina Jolie  sparked the trend last year at the Oscars when she thrust her right leg out of her Versace gown and it's been officially dubbed as "Leg Bombing" 

Leg slit Golden Globes

There is certainly no shortage of leggy stars in Hollywood, and as with most things, getting gorgeous legs usually comes with a high price tag and tons of help. I am always searching for secrets to share with you that you can do all on your own and so I'm happy to tell you about the new Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X that just launched in January. That's right you can get smooth and sexy hair free legs at home for a fraction of price of laser hair removal and pull off your own leg bomb!

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X, is the first and only FDA cleared device for at home laser hair removal.  It's uses the same technology found in doctor's offices with permanent results. The best part? You can use it in the privacy of your own home and it's safe enough to use even on your face.

In a doctor's office you would usually pay up to a $1000 to treat one area of your body for permanent laser hair removal and return for at least 6 visits!  Like everything in life that's worth having, it does take a little effort ...  with the Tria Laser it's recommend to use it 10 minutes, once a week for 3 months at the highest setting you can.

You should know that laser hair removal generally only works on brown or black body hair. There is a sensor on the bottom of the Tria device that will automatically unlock if your skin tone is safe to use it on. Lighter hair, gray and sometimes red usually does not contain enough pigment to absorb laser light. Even professional laser hair removal systems that are used in medical clinics are not effective on these hair colors.

Gotta love Kelly Ripa for "keeping it real!" and revealing one of the best kept secret weapons of Real Housewives, Beauty Queens, models and celebrities to her audience live on Dec 20 ... extra hair. 

The down to earth star who is always able to laugh at herself, took off a significant chunk of her mane for all to see even though her producer wasn't so sure, worried she would scare her audience and actually said so on the air. Unlike the bad weaves and glue-in weft mishaps that we have seen on stars before, the halo hair extensions are virtually undetectable and undeniably real looking. And Ms Ripa proved it.

Over a year ago, Marie Claire wrote about her stylist, Ryan Trygstad's "BeautyFalls". This is reportedly a man who knows his way around fake hair- making hair pieces for Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Chastain to name a few, but instead of the usual 6 hour extension session this hairy attachment only requires a minute or less to put on and remove, Plus you can do it yourself, wash, style it over and over again! 

Kelly's "wigston" as she named it, will set you back a cool $475 at Trygstad's NYC salon, after being customized to match your color and cut, but don't worry there's a less expensive option available to the ordinary girl wanting some extra-ordinary hair from a company online that sells the Halo Hair Crown in the US and is taking orders online for just $175 {HERE}.

The Halo Crown hair is 100% human hair with a silky texture and easy to wear. Simple to adjust, nothing to glue or clip in; just a small invisible transparent thread in front to hide that is easily covered with your own hair. I guess the weight of your natural hair once pulled over keeps in place because I actually flipped my head up and down and side to side and it never fell off! GENIUS!

Here's a video of Kelly showing us her halo hair.

If any of you would like to buy them here is the link to the Halo Hair ($175). The color options are huge and although you may think it's hard to match your color you'd be surprised how easy it is to do.

Regarding hair color, there are industry standardized colors based on how dark the hair is on a scale of 1 to 10, with the blackest being 1, to 10 being a very light blond color. (So it may be as easy as asking your colorist what level you are). For me, my stylist says I am usually between a 3 and 4. Because my hair has low lights and highlights, I can get away with wearing extensions that are between color 2 and 4 and it all blends. Afterall, being all one color can make you look like you are wearing a helmut on your head. The best part of the halo hair is that it is 100% human hair so if you like you can add your own highlights or make it a perfect match yourself. Cut it to the length you want and style, some girls just want more fullness while others might be interested in longer hair. 

Here's to having it all Goldilocks!
