Get The Look: Krysten Ritter's Makeup At The 'Don't Trust The B---- In Apt. 23 Premiere


Makeup maven Amy Nadine created Krysten Ritter's look for the premiere of Don't Trust The B---- in Apt. 23. Says Amy, "I borrowed some classic styles from Old Hollywood's Audrey Hepburn and Myrna Loy and simplified Krysten's look to a defined eye with big doe-eyed lashes and a timeless red lip." Here, the beauty breakdown.


FACE
I mixed Tom Ford Liquid Foundation in 03 with Dolce & Gabbana The Foundation in 80 and blended it seamlessly with Metier de Beauty's angled foundation brush and the Beauty Blender egg sponge.

EYE
I applied Stila Kitten with a wet shadow brush all over her lid all the way up to her brow bone. Next I swept Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Liner in Sequins across her lash line thicker than normal for extra glamour! I finished with two coats of Tarte Amazonian Smart Mascara and Ardell Individual Lashes in Medium.

CHEEK
I swirled Kevyn Aucoin Cream Blush in TanSoleil on the apples of her cheeks with Tom Ford's foundation brush.

LIP
I finished the look with Tarte LipSurgence in Lust, a bright red tinted lip balm that makes a statement without wearing you.

What do you think of Krysten's look?

SensatioNail Color Gel Polish Review


Because I'm nocturnal like a Gremlin, sometimes I can't make it to a salon during NPH (which means both Neil Patrick Harris, and Normal People Hours. Clearly we're referring to the latter in this instance).  In fact, I've changed my entire life to do NOTHING during NPH. Trader Joe's runs at noon? YES. 4:15 Core Fusion workouts? Delightful. Telling everyone in the packed 4:15 classes to GET A JOB in my head? Totally. Working in increments like 12pm-3pm and 8pm to midnight? That's pretty much my week. Laundry at 9am? How can there be a better time? You get the idea.


So when I want a midnight gel manicure pre-vacay and it's a million o'clock the night before I'm getting on a plane AND I still have to pack, obviously I'm not getting into Jin Soon for a Shellac.

SensatioNail's new hues!


So I turn to Sensationail, a fantastic at-home gel manicure set (LED light included) so anyone with a modicum of nail tech skill can achieve a two-week, gleaming, chip-free mani in the comfort of their own home, or on the floor of my living room, which is my "at-home salon" space. A dude once pointed out that I looked so elated to be doing my nails myself with all of my SensatioNail paraphernalia spread out, the whole scene reminded him of a child playing with legos. What can I say? Gellin' is a lifestyle.






SensatioNail is available at Walmart and select CVS locations nationwide. Prices range from $12-$60.

Fictionary: Excessories


Fictionary is a column showcasing fashion- and beauty-related words that don't exist, but should.

Famous excessorizer Kimmy Gibbler.
I'm SUPER averse to most accessories and jewelry, save for teeny delicate gold necklaces and simple stud earrings. OCCASIONALLY I'll rock a bracelet or the odd cuff. Coco Chanel famously said, "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off." I certainly lean too much in the opposite camp, but I DESPISE Excessories. As someone who accessorizes with makeup and hairstyles and the odd hair accoutrement, anything beyond the subtle disturbs me. It's all so KIMMY GIBBLER. She routinely rocked an elaborate updo with multiple hair accessories PLUS a large necklace PLUS dangling earrings. I blame my inability to don danglies totally to my "Full House" addiction in the '80s.

What's your stance on Excessories?
