We feel that Penelope Cruz got it right.

The picture at left is of her arrival at the 2007 Golden Globes.
At BeansTalk we feel that Ms. Cruz' super pumped up lash can be created with our favorite Big Tease Mascara from Bare Escentuals. This little gem of a mascara has a dual brush with short and long bristles. To get maximum lash coverage, move the wand from left to right, left to right, jiggling it back and forth through the lashes as you wand it on. You will get better coverage and results.

Amy Winehouse is apparently a big fan of pink lipstick. If you have seen any of her public appearances, she often coordinates this with her pink eye shadow shade. We must scold her for this. While we feel that pink is a very sweet color for our eight-year-old daughter, we recommend that Ms.Winehouse try to stay away from the pastel pinks she prefers and opt for more nude pinks or natural pinks. Again, we suggest that fans try the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump Perfect Lipstick in the Bare or Blush shades. These creamy lipsticks are a bit more adult and will not compete with the dramatic eye make up for attention. Our favorite aspect of this lip color is the ceramide plumping effect. Ceramide will give you the Winehouse pout and full lip which is really part of the singer’s signature mystique. Again, refer to Ms. Cruz’ nude lip color – sophisticated, subtle, a balance to the whole face.

Last, we recommend topping and coordinating the Bare or Blush lipstick shades with Elizabeth Arden’s Lip Definer in Grapevine or Natural. The Elizabeth Arden Lip Definer is an automatic self-sharpening lip pencil, which allows precision during application. The long-wearing creamy and waterproof formula offers consistent, glide-on application and maintains a crisp long-lasting line. We recommend applying the liner after the lip color, as you will avoid the tell-tale line should your lip color wear off first.
