Vanity Fair & L’Oréal Paris DJ Night Party

Ah, awards season. You know how I love thee.  I attended a super fun pre-Oscars party the other night at one of my favorite spots: The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.  Freida Pinto co-hosted the party with Vanity Fair and, of course, L’Oréal Paris.  Here’s how to get Freida’s stunning makeup look from the event:


  • – Smooth L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Berry Lift ($12.95) onto the apples of cheeks

– Apply L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Power Volume Mascara in Black Smoke to lashes
– Create a smoky lid with L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shadow Quad in Perfume ID
– Add definition to eyes using L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black
– Add a glossy pop of pink to lips with L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Lilac Ever After

Pre-Emmys Prep with L’OREAL Paris

There’s one thing that I’ll never turn down, and that’s a free blow out.  L’OREAL is one of those amazing beauty brands that’s basically involved with anything major and cool so when they invited me to their pre-Emmys beauty suite at The Four Season Beverly Hills and then to the Entertainment Weekly party, I was stoked.  I had my hair done in my go-to “loose waves, high volume” style, a fresh pedi and, of course, had my makeup done.

This is the makeup village it takes to get me ready, apparently.  And a big thanks to April, L’OREAL’s amazing makeup artist (and my neighbor!)

Obsessed with their new Nail Lingerie and this amazing shade of red (for my toes) called “Red Tote”

My favorite new House of Harlow 1960 double finger (you know I love those) snake ring, c/o L’OREAL. Manicure by ESSIE and you can see more images from ESSIE’s pre-Emmy suite (and me making crazy faces) HERE.

Gwen Stefani is the newest face of L’Oreal Paris!

So I don’t have to remind you…if you read my blog, you know about my Gwen Stefani obsession.  Well, the queen of red lipstick has just been announced as the newest face of L’Oreal Paris and more specifically, the face of the brand’s new Infallible Le Rouge long-wear lip color.  SO gorgeous. 

“I can’t believe I get to be one of the L’Oreal Paris girls,” Stefani told People.com.  Gwennie is joining the ranks of other Hollywood A-listers like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Eva Longoria, who all also serve as faces of L’Oreal.  “To get to work with such a modern, talented group of people is really exciting.  I’m a lucky girl,” says Stefani.  Lucky indeed, Gwen.  Lucky, indeed.

The first commercial featuring Gwen will air during the Golden Globes this Sunday so stay tuned.
