They’re so fake, it’s not very interesting. Mostly it’s promotionnal space for the brands, and the tips are the worst : “two coats of black mascara”, helloooo, do you think we’re so dumb we do not see the fake lashes ?

LOL OMG I soooo agree with both Edea and Kayc! Its like either they think we are dumb or its just one big ad for whatever line the celeb is being paid by. Its fake and an insult to our beauty smarts 😉 I pass on them!

I like the ones that look like they are really listing what actually was used. But lots of times, as the first commenter said, they use false lashes but claim only mascara was used. Or, they’ll say X brand eye pencil was used, when the celebrity clearly has liquid / gel liner on. Often they’ll omit key products as well!

Once I spot something like that I don’t even bother reading the rest.

Totally agree!!! And, like super hot Hollywood stars &/or supermodels would really wear Maybelline, Cover Girl, AVON, or Rimmel makeup!! PPPUUULLLEEEAAASSEEEE!!!! LOL. I don’t even wear that s**t on my face! Yeah! With the $$$ they have, it’s most likely most of them have had plastic surgery &/or Botox injections, laser treatments, or some other non m/u work done!

No not really. I don’t really care for celebrity looks since I’m sure they pack on 500 pounds of make up. I prefer reading about beauty tutorials from blogs, etc.. coz they’re actually done by people who understand that not every woman wants to pack on enormous amounts of makeup on a daily basis.

i just look at the pictures, not how they did the makeup. It would probably be just as good if you just put the pictures without how they did the makeup and hair.

I love reading it….especially if the celebrity has similar skin tone as me…gives me different ideas. Some of the tips are spot on but others can be a lil exaggerated.

I skip’em. I agree with Edea. I mean come on – sometimes, it comes across as if all they are wearing is mascara and lipgloss. But in most cases, there are way too many products that are way too high-end for me to try something similar. Now if there were more looks using MAC, that would be cool!

I just love the pics more than the breakdown of the look but it is interesting to know what celebrities are using!

Yes, I do enjoy reading what products maybe used to create a look. What gets me is how the majority of the m/up artists are in over drive with that totally nude look at the gala events.

I prefer reading books by professional Make-Up Artists. Have a few from Bobbi Brown, Linda Mason, Kevyn Aucoin etc…

Its more interesting and their style are all so different and fun to read and learn from!
