Jennifer Lopez Signs Up As L’Oreal Girl

Jennifer Lopez is the new face of L’oreal!  The sweet yet fiery  Latina is very excited to take on this iconic role for the cosmetic brand as she believes the brand epitomizes glamour.

Being a hard working glamour mom certainly doesn’t seem  to take toll on the songstress herself. She still boasts of dangerous curves, glowing skin and long luscious flowing locks. Who could ever guess  she is a 41 year old mamita?

Lopez  says it is very important for her to maintain great skin and beautiful hair. She wants to emphasize on a healthy look which entails keeping her hair in good condition and her skin  in top form

Although not everyone is blessed with good genes, it is not impossible to achieve a healthy young looking glow.  Jennifer strongly advises women in  any  age group to take time to look after themselves.

She says to avoid sun exposure , smoking and drinking. You would think how a woman in her status can avoid  getting sucked into an unhealthy lifestyle of non stop over indulgence in alcohol, smoking .. and  late night partying. But this girl from the block firmly believes in keeping the excesses to a bare minimum by eating healthy, not smoking and binging on alcohol and going tan crazy chasing the sun.

For most Caucasians, sun damage is a detrimental factor to losing that healthy glow.  Always use sunscreen whenever  you step out of the house. Lopez admits her excitement  since she  herself will tell you that  she admires  how L’Oreal is always instep with glamour and innovation.

Event after event, you will see them posing in front of cameras without having to worry about uneven pale skin, and without the tan lines to show for it, everyone knows that celebrities left and right are using bronzers to give their skin a healthy looking glow all year.

If you need to get a nice event an for a special event, you can go the celebrity way by using a tanning lotion with bronzing agents. Bronzers, if applied properly, will give you an temporary tan instantly.

Take all the time you need in choosing the bronzer that will give you the effect that you want.

You also have to make sure that you apply the bronzer evenly and that you get to the easy to miss parts like right behind the ears so that you do not look mottled or patched up. Have a friend help you out if you need it. Celebrities also glow not just because of their tanning lotions, but also because they really take care of their skin well. So when you do choose a tanning lotion, choose one that not only matches your skin tone, but will also keep it well moisturized.

Pink should hire a new stylist

I dunno about you guys, but I don’t think that the gown Pink is wearing suits her. I think asymmetrical details only look good on certain body types and hers is not one of them.


Celebs who break the rules


Some celebrities are fashion victims, whose fashion statement can be summarized in one word: tacky.
Others somehow know how to bend the rules to their own personality and make it look oh, so good.

No, it ain’t posh enough


Posh is very… determined. Despite her efforts at a fashion career bombing at all fronts, she’s gone ahead and launched a men’s line…which bombed too.

Listen, Posh. It’s not going to happen. Find something else to do. Fashion’s not your thing.
