Can I Use A Dark-Colored Shampoo To Tone Down My Highlights

16 Jan


No way. While great for enriching brunettes, “color-depositing shampoos can stain blondes and in a patchy way, since highlighted hair is more porous at the ends,” says Sarah Potempa, a stylist for Aussie. Solutions: Apply a violet-toned shampoo like Clairol Shimmer Lights, $9. Leave it on like conditioner for five minutes to neutralize brassiness. Or ask your colorist to deepen your overall tone with lowlights.

Emma Stone’s Makeup Bag Must-Haves

8 Aug

The natural blonde-turned-fiery redhead just picked up the People’s Choice Award for her role in “The Help.” The 23-year-old, who first gave audiences a glimpse of her quick wit as a member of team Apatow in 2007’s “Superbad,” is also a fashion darling; impressive turns in Chanel couture, Giambattista Valli, and Calvin Klein Collection have made her a regular on best-dressed lists.

But it’s her beauty prowess that’s got us hooked on Stone. The newly named global brand ambassador for Revlon isn’t afraid to wear a cat-eye with a Lanvin gown or a fluorescent pink pout with a Preen sheath dress, and yet she’s not one to labor over her look (“I like to do my face and get out of the house,” said the actress). Here, the comedienne delivers some keen wisdom on what keeps her glowing—with a few wisecracks thrown in for good measure.

Aura Cacia Grapeseed Skin Care Oil

“Not to brag, but I have a lot of allergies. I’m seriously allergic to everything. So I just use natural grape seed oils from the grocery store on my face as moisturizer. After the shower, I pat it on, and then I’ll use it throughtout the day and night. I pretty much smell like grape all the time.”

Revlon ColorStay Makeup in Buff

“I’ve been using this foundation since I started wearing makeup. My mom always wore Revlon, so it was a big moment when I became brand ambassador. But I’m actually trying to go easier on foundation these days. I had to wear so much for the film I’m working on, Gangster Squad – It’s set in the 1940’s – and I was completely covered in thick makeup. So I’m trying to let my skin breathe for a bit.”

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo and Nounou Conditioner

“I need a lot of moisture for my skin, but not for my hair. I have the opposite problem with my scalp as I do with my face. This clarifying shampoo doesn’t weigh down my hair, and the conditioner is great for baby fine hair. It also smells very good too.”

Burt’s Bees Natural Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum

“I can’t use a lot of skin care creams because I’m so sensitive to everything, but I’ve had luck with this!”

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Candy Apple

“I like how it’s got color, but it’s basically a lip balm. My favorite shape is Candy Apple – I love my reds. I think it’s kind of awesome to wear red on your lips, especially if you have red hair. I’ll use lipstick if I’m going to a big event and that’s all I can fit in my clutch. But in general , lipstick is too darn drying for me, and I end up eating it off my lips.”

Redken Color Gels 8AB Stardust and Redken EQ 000 Crystal Clear Glaze

“Tracey Cunningham is the only woman I trust to stick her hands in my hair. I’ve been turned ultraviolet purple before. It’s very tricky business going red. She was the one who first made me red and I’ve been devoted ever since.”


Lea Michele’s Sleek, Shiny Strands: Steal Her Look

20 Jul

The Glee star’s hair was more lustrous than ever at an event July 20 in New York City — Here’s the must-have product you need to get your locks equally as sleek!

Lea Michele shined brighter than ever at Valspar Hands For Habitat Unveiling at Hearst Tower. The gorgeous star, 25, had some seriously sleek strands! Lea’s hair looks so pretty straight — if you love the look, with a little know-how, you can get it too!

The key to high shine is to use an oil treatment like Josie Maran Argan Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment. Apply one ampule to wet hair. The self-heating oil provides a warming sensation as it goes deep into the cuticle, locking in moisture and shine. Leave on for one to three minutes and rinse thoroughly. Use weekly or as often as needed.
