Hendrix on DVD: Jimi Hendri: The Last 24 Hours is available on DVD. Offstage Jimi Hendrix was shy and reserved, but onstage he became a towering genius, whose performances and guitar mastery sparked a revolution in both music and fashion. Jimi was just 27 when he died. His death was never easily explained and to this day mystery still surrounds the death of one of the world’s greatest rock legends. Here, in Jimi Hendrix -The Last 24 Hours the producers explore and explain the reasons why Jimi’s demise became shrouded in rumor, gossip and falsehoods.

The authorities and media quickly dismissed the death of Hendrix as just another drugged rock star casualty; however for the first time, the circumstances leading to Jimi’s tragic death can be examined as the producers present new and compelling evidence. Evidence, which may reopen the inquiry into what may have been for certain parties, a convenient death. Viewers will have to decide for themselves just what happened on September 18th 1970 in a small, private hotel situated in the Notting Hill area of London.

The DVD also features contributions from other major music giants, including Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend and Eric Clapton. Bonus features include: The Hendrix Picture Gallery, Discography; Language English: Subtitled in French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish. Also included in the package is a 32 Page Color Booklet, featuring rare pictures detailing the life and times of Jimi Hendrix.

Seasonal Makeup Tips:
Season to Seasonal Makeup Tips from Artist Stephen Sollitto: When the weather cools down, winter wardrobes are a natural transition. Winter makeup should be too, yet some of us continue to O.D. on bronzer in an effort to carry on a sunny “glow” entirely too long. “In the summer you want to look sun-kissed, in the winter you want to look healthily flushed,” explains makeup expert Stephen Sollitto, whose client list includes Amber Tamblyn, Eliza Dushku, Zooey Deschanel and pop diva Christina Aguilera. “In the chilly months, the color palette also shifts from corals to reds.”

Stephen’s cool weather makeup tips include:

Summer’s peaches and bronzers are not appropriate in January, but by introducing browns to your cool palette you can help tone down a stark look.

Instead of lining the eye, try pairing a warm brown eye shadow with your red lipstick.

To tone down the lips, make sure natural lipstick isn't a blue-based brown. Try a berry instead. If it's too dark, add lip balm until it's diluted to your liking.

On cheeks a light brushing of an orange/ red blush will bridge the gap between a peachy summer and a glowing winter.

Foundation is fine, not too much powder! Think “healthy glow” even if you're freezing outside. So load on the moisturizer and sleep with a humidifier. As always drink lots of water.

Hot colors for winter:

Blush - keep it on the red side or a light brushing of a deep berry.

Eyeshadow - browns, purples and naturals

Eyeliner - Black or a deep cocoa brown

Mascara - Black, or for a holiday party black with a coat of maroon over it.

Lipstick - Reds, berries or your favorite lip balm. Stain the lips. Don't commit to lining and filling in.

<>Load up on your favorite moisturizer and or mix it with a dab of your foundation: Re-applying moisturizer during the day will help keep your skin nourished. An alternative to blush, just a speck of your summer foundation to your cheeks can give you a healthy glow.

Mrs. Governor’s Garb: Maria Shriver, wore a gown by Monique Lhuillier to accept the Alzheimer’s Awareness Award at the 20th Anniversary of the Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala. She’s being honored for her children’s book “What’s Happening to Grandpa?” which educates children about Alzheimer’s disease, will look chic in a black sleeveless Alencon lace gown with godet skirt and black velvet ribbon belt from Monique’s Fall 2004 collection. Princess Diana favored Brit designers. Now, as the wife of the governor of California, has Shriver started to wear California-based designers? She’s certainly turned to Monique Lhuillier, a Los Angeles-based designer, to dress her for several occasions.
