Beth Bender's Celeb Looks - The SAG Awards


These Hollywood celebs looked beautiful and who can blame them with the Golden Globes being cancelled. They needed a reason to get gorgeous and gorgeous they were! Some of my favorites were Angelina Jolie, Andrea Bowen from Desperate Housewives and Marion Cotillard from La Vie En Rose. Make up artists and hair stylists worked overtime to get these ladies to the red carpet on time.

Andrea Bowen looked beautiful with her hair swept up and away from her face. Her make up was flawless and her perfectly groomed brows and sultry smoky eyes took front and center.

To get Andrea’s look start with the eyes first. Andrea went for a more dramatic smoky eye using colors in brown and amber shimmers. Her eyes were lined top and bottom with a black gel eyeliner and set with a bit of shadow for a softer look.

Start by applying color to the entire eyelid area with an eyeshadow brush and blending into the crease as seen here. If you have a Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit you can use the smoky eye template to create the shape before blending into the crease of eye. Don’t worry about concealer until the eyes are finished. I like to mix both colors before applying to the eye. Try Brown Sugar and Ambra Eye Dust, $16 at

To finish the smoky eyes, with an eyeshadow brush apply a lighter shade to the brow bone making sure to blend color well. A great base color for this is Bobbi Brown’s Champagne Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow, $19 at Bobbi Brown.

Next take your black gel eyeliner and with a tapered or straight edge eyeliner brush carefully tap into the lash line as you line the eye. Extend the line out as seen here on Andrea and finish by lining underneath so that both bottom and top liner meet at the outer eye. As you get closer to the center of eye start to make the line thinner and blend into lash line.

Take a bit of Ambra eye dust with an eyeshadow brush and sweep under the eye to soften the line and give it a more dramatic look. Our new favorite mascara is Fiberwig but a good black mascara will do just fine. Add two coats and make sure to coat each lash for maximum lash appeal.

Clean up any mess underneath the eyes with a bit of eye cream and a Q-tip. Then apply concealer. For a flawless face add a bit of tinted moisturizer or a water based foundation. Use a sponge for more coverage and a brush for a more sheer finish. Try Vincent Longo’s Light Canvas Tinted Moisturizer, $38 or his Liquid Canvas Dew Finish Foundation, $48.50 both fabulous and available at

On the cheeks a little cream blush in either a pink or peach tone adds just the right amount of color without over doing it. Try Kitty or Blushing Bride, $18 and both from

Stick to a light shade on the lips as well. Try Afterglow Lip Enhancing Gloss, $18 from Smashbox Cosmetics. It’s the perfect combination of a pink/peach gloss and has great shine.

Now go get your celeb look on ladies! Stay tuned for more SAG Award Celeb looks.

Angelina Jolie Glows At The SAG Awards

Angelina Jolie Is Pregnant


It’s confirmed! Angelina Jolie is pregnant again. Rumors have been flying that say she is expecting twins but she is definitely pregnant. She looked absolutely radiant at the Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Sources close to us said that she had turned down a movie role that would begin shooting in the next few months because of her pregnancy. This will make baby number five and who knows how many more after this.

I was away shooting on the day of the awards but was told by a friend who attended that Angelina was sporting her trademark cat eye and said her make up looked flawless.

Beth Bender Beauty Gets A Nod

Months ago we sent a goody bag of beauty products to a gal in New York who was writing a book on relationships with her husband. The book title was “Why Hasn’t He Called?”

A book about how guys think and how to get a guy to stay interested in you without falling back into patterns that can hurt a good relationship. I loved the idea and was happy to offer whatever beauty advice they needed.

I spent some time chatting with one of the editor’s and emailed my beauty tips to Tamsen. Who I later found out was WCBS-TV reporter Tamsen Fadel and whose husband is Mat Titus founder of Matt’s Little Black Book, a Manhattan Matchmaking Agency. Together they star in Matched in Manhattan. A new reality show on Lifetime that features Mat and Tamsen helping men and women in New York find true love.

Tamsen was an absolute doll and loved the tips I sent, most of them about enhancing your eyes. Yesterday we received and email saying that Beth Bender Beauty had been included in the book and that Tamsen herself was quoted as saying ” The fun, playful packaging of this makeup line is nearly as fantastic as the gorgeous, fresh makeup itself”

We were so happy about the news and can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of the book. At the moment “Why Hasn’t He Called?” is available at Amazon and in a week will be at both Barnes & Noble and Border’s. I urge anyone looking for advice on how to meet the right guy or gal to check out this book.

You can also check out Mat and Tamsen at their website Sassybean. A fabulous website covering beauty, fashion, accessories, relationships and everything else in between.

Celebrities Wearing Beth Bender

Eye Spy Beth Bender Beauty

Seen…Drew Barrymore spotted in Los Angeles with beau Justin Long. Still going strong and from what I hear very, very happy. Our beauty spies caught Drew touching up her lips after dinner with her Ooh Baby Lip color. Sent to Drew on Set along with a few other goodies like A little Crush Blush, and Cocoa Gel Eyeliner all from beth bender beauty.

Seen…Paris and Nicky Hilton both attending the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Seen…at the Myspace Nights at Tao Park City. Is everyone loving Paris’s new bob as much as I am? I think she looks great! I especially loved her lip color. You guessed it..Paris is Burning liquid lip color. Her sister Nicky prefers Crush liquid lip color but they both love the Get in Line Eyeliner kit.

Kim Raver promoting her new show Lipstick Jungle on NBC. Her make up must haves for looking beautiful, the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil kit, Liquid Lip color in Crush and All Over Face Shimmer in Pretty.

New to Beth Bender Beauty, Odette Yustman of ABC’s hit show October Road and box office hit Cloverfield. Can we just say gorgeous! She is stunning, smart, down to earth and we are so happy for her success. We sent her a Get in Line Eyeliner Kit which she loves and glam gloss Honolulu Girl that she wore to the Premiere of Cloverfield.

Let’s Create Sexy Cat Eyes

Sexy cat eyes please, please!


Just the other day a woman who was interested in trying the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit sent us an email with this photo attached and asked if she could create cat eyes like this. My very sweet assistant spent quite a bit of time explaining to her how they worked and that by placing the stencils either close to the lash line or slightly higher would give you a cat eye as dramatic as the one seen here.

When they were finished she decided to give the Get in Line Kit a try and we are happy to report that she has been sporting sexy cat eyes ever since. If you don’t believe us, check out ebeautydaily, beautiful makeup search, hotmamadaily, and Glamspace a few of our favorite blogs to see what they think of the Get in Line Kit.

This is a hot photo and I do love the pinks lips. Looks like Ooh Baby Liquid Lip color. Pink is also a very hot color for spring. Lot’s of glosses and lip color that a girl just can’t be without.



How to Choose The Right Lip Color


Coral lips are back for spring and looking good on Rachel Bilson. I don’t think I have ever seen her look bad. Make sure to choose a coral that works best for your coloring. If you’re fair and have more pink in your skin then choose a coral shade that has blue undertones. If your complexion is warmer go for a lip color with warm or yellow undertones. Try Claret SPF Lip Shine, $19 from Bobbi Brown which looks beautiful on both fair and darker skin tones.

If you’re looking for shine and hydrating lip color try Sophia Beauty Balm, $10 at beth bender beauty. If you’re a gloss girl like me then go with Dahlia glam gloss, $16 at Beth Bender Beauty.

For perfect eyeliner like Rachel’s try the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit, $36 at

Get Perfect Eyeliner Everytime

It seems that Color on Pro whose idea was similar to the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit has gotten another bad wrap. This time from page six of the New York Post. They fell right above Tom Cruise’s wacky interview that everyone here in Hollywood can’t stop talking about.


Well not to be partial or anything but I can’t say that I’m surprised. One of the biggest complaints was that there seemed to be very little shadow on the eyes and much more on the sticker it self. They might be slightly less expensive but when everything is said and done are you even getting what you want and once you’ve used them up you have to spend another $30?

Girls you know what to do for sultry smoky eyes and perfect eyeliner every time. The Get in Line Eyeliner Kit from beth bender beauty was the first and still is the only eyeliner stencil kit in the beauty industry to create these looks just like the pro’s.


Scarlett Johansson doesn’t leave home without her Get in Line Eyeliner kit from beth bender beauty

Jenny McCarthy Loves The Get in Line Kit

Jenny McCarthy is in the house

Jenny McCarthy is the latest celebrity to give the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil kit the thumbs up. Jenny is working on a new project that one of my dear friends was called to work on last week in Los Angeles. It’s very hush hush but I hear that it’s fantastic and that Jenny was an absolute doll throughout the day.

When shooting was over he stopped by her dressing room and handed her a Get in Line kit. She was so touched and very excited to try the stencils having read about them recently in the Pasadena Star News. She’s a big fan of the cat eye and before he left she had already done a perfect set.

Now that’s what I call a real pro!

Rock on Jenny!!

Let's Create Soft Smoky Eyes

Blake Lively from Gossip Girl has been getting quite a lot of attention lately. Seen here looking very glamourous and giving us a new and softer twist on the oh so famous smoky eye. To get this look Beth suggests starting with the eyes first and then finishing with foundation and lips.

Start by using two eye shadows together and then applying to the eye. Beth suggests a soft lavender and medium purple. Sweep the color over the eye lid using an eyeshadow brush. Try Love candy and Goddess Eye Dust both from beth bender beauty. Create the perfect smoky eye using the Get in Line smoky eye kit. Once you have the perfect shape make sure to blend well and extend the color slightly above the crease as seen here on Blake.

Use your bottom eyeliner stencil to line underneath each eye and soften the line with the fuller end of brush. For a sultry look finish by lining as close to the lash line top and bottom with a plum eyeliner pencil. Try 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in 1999 from Urban Decay. Finish with two coats of mascara. Try Fiberwig mascara available at Sephora and sephora online.

Once you have the eyes done move to the face. Apply a sheer foundation using a sponge for medium to full coverage and a brush for lighter coverage. Beth suggests either a tinted moisturizer or a light weight foundation depending on your preference. Try Light Canvas Healthy Fluid Foundation from Vincent Longo.

Apply just a touch of blush to the apple of cheeks using a fluffy blush brush, making sure not to over do it. Try Baby Powder Blush from beth bender beauty. A soft pink lip color applied with a lip brush. If you line your lips make sure to do first before applying lip color. Try Mitzi Lip Color from Nars.

Beth Bender's Beauty Finds

Calvin Klein make up is back and better then ever. I was a fan when his first beauty line launched in the late 90's. This was years before I started Beth Bender Beauty and created the Get in Line eyeliner kit. I fell in love with his eye pencils and still have three of them that I still use on jobs. They are fantastic and I am hoping that the new ones will be just as good. His eye shadows were also fabulous and I hope those haven't changed either. The packaging has but it looks like for the better because that was one of the flaws in the first line.

The new beauty line is quite large and includes everything for faces, lips, eyes and nails. The new line was developed by the ck Calvin Klein team, including Mark Carrasquillo, the company's newly named Global Makeup Artist, and Kevin Carrigan, Creative Director of ck Calvin Klein beauty and apparel.

The full line is not yet available in the states except for the glosses which are available at sephora. This is such a drag because there are so many women who would love to check it out. If you happen to make it as far as Hong Kong you might want grab a few eyeliners and eye shadows.

Beth Bender's New Beauty Finds

Get ready for glamourous eyes!

Has anyone crossed paths with this fabulous new mascara from Imju Fiberwig of Japan. It’s called Fiberwig and is new at Sephora. It has been blowing out of every door. It’s the top selling mascara in Japan giving lashes “false eyelash look” results.

I was lucky enough to grab one of the last tubes over the weekend and let me tell you I could not believe how amazing my lashes looked. Fiberwig imparts a perfect, smudge-proof maximum lash extension effect. It comes off with warm water and doesn’t damage your natural lashes. Best of all it’s resistant to tears, sweat and oil.

A tube of Fiberwig will cost you $22.00 but it is totally worth every penny. You can purchase online at Sephora or stop by any Sephora location.

Carmen’s new Look


Tell us what you think..

I do love Carmen Electra. I usually love the way she looks but I have to agree with Christina from ebeautydaily. I am not sure that this is the shot that Max factor should be using to promote their”how to get Carmen’s red carpet couture look”.

Pat McGrath is probably one of the most recognized artists along with Dick Page and Tom Pecheux but what goes on with this look? Her teeth are so over the top not to mention how overly photoshoped her complexion is.

My favorite Carmen look is hair down, loose waves and definitely less of the eye make up as seen here.

agree or disagree?

Sexy, Sultry Cat Eyes Like Angelina

Sexy cat eyes please, please!


Love Angelina Jolie? You bet we do! Her style is her own and she wears it so well. Her signature Cat eye has become a staple in her beauty regime and you can’t help but want those cat eyes.

To create Angelina’s sexy cat eyes Beth suggests using The Get in Line Stencil Kit for absolutely perfect cat eyes. You decide how thick or thin. It gives you a perfect point and line and takes seconds to do.

For a soft lip color to compliment your sexy cat eyes, try Chasing the cash Liquid Lip color, a fav of Angelina’s.

Beth Bender Beauty Out and About

I spy beth bender beauty

Did anyone happen to catch Britney sporting a new British accent last week while shopping with her already over with close friend Adnan Ghalib? What was that all about? Poor thing. Seen…shopping for a new top and came out wearing one of Betsey Johnson’s cute sweaters. I have two myself, they are so darling.

Did anyone happen to see her whip out her Ooh baby Lip gloss to touch up her lips? That color went perfectly with her new sweater. Even with all of the turmoil that follows her she still manages to find time to give her lips some loving. We do love you Britney.

Seen…Mischa Barton at L.A. nightclub Teddy’s earlier this month. Our beauty spy’s tell us she spent more than a few minutes checking out her eyeliner and adding some Onyx Gel liner to her already lined eyes.

Seen…Amy Winehouse who is still mad for the Get in Line Eyeliner Kit and made a point of telling my friend Carla who is a celebrity artist in The UK and was using hers on a shoot recently. Has anyone seen Amy’s new Blonde do? Gone are the trademark bee hive and long tresses. I think I prefer the darker shade but this may grow on me eventually.

Seen…The always beautiful Scarlett Johansson and beau Ryan Reynolds having dinner in Los Angeles. Our beauty spy’s tell us she excused herself to the ladies room and touched up her lips with some Chasing the Cash Lip color. Our reps tell us she loves the color so much she orders six at a time.

Give Me Smoky Eyes Like Lindsay Lohan


We are well into the new year and smoky eyes are still ruling the red carpet. The color palettes are softer but the smoky eye is still hot. Lindsay Lohan is a big fan of the smoky eye and her green eyes look even greener in this photo.

Want to get sexy smoky eyes like Lindsay? Try using a dark grey shadow mixed with a touch of charcoal shimmer shadow. Line underneath with the charcoal shimmer and finish by lining the inside rim with a black pencil. Adding a few individual lash clusters to the ends of each eye as seen here on Lindsay will make the eyes pop even more.

For perfect smoky eyes every time use the Get in Line Stencil Kit from beth bender beauty and check out the list of celebs already using the kit. Try Slate eye shadow from Bobbi Brown and Bellatrix Eye Dust from beth bender beauty to create the look.


The Get in Line Kit from Beth Bender Beauty

Sultry Smoky Eyes and Fushia Lips


Kiera Knightley’s smoky eyes look gorgeous and her fushia lips are giving them a run for their money. This latest incarnation of the bold red lip but with cooler tones looks powerful and oh so sweet!

To get these pretty lips like Keira, Beth suggests smiling while you apply your lip color. It stretches the lip and allows you to coat the entire surface exposing every furrow to be filled in with pigment.

Love her smoky eyes? We do too. For those of you who haven’t yet mastered the smoky eye or just don’t have the time to spend in front of the mirror, Beth suggests using her Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit. Create smoky eyes in minutes as seen here on Keira Knightley.

Keep Your Eyeliner Smudge Free

How can I stop my eyeliner from smearing under my bottom eyelashes? Nothing seems to work!


The secret to perfect looking eyeliner that stays put is layering. Rachel Bilson has mastered the art of perfect eyeliner using her Get in Line Kit and her favorite black eyeliner from Prescriptives. Black eyeliner in particular always has an annoying habit of streaking down one’s cheeks at inappropriate moments, which is why you need to take the extra step to make sure it doesn’t move all day.

Beth says the trick is to apply your eye pencil as you normally would, then use an eye lining brush to go over the line with the exact same color of eye shadow. Blend it in well. The powdery formulation of the shadow locks the color in place and keeps it from going anywhere. For perfect eyeliner like Rachel’s beth suggests trying the Get in Line eyeliner and eyeshadow kit. The stencils allow you to create perfect eyeliner and include a beautiful charcoal and Indian brown eyeshadow.

Don’t forget that if you’re using an eye cream or cream concealers to make sure and powder under the eye using either a powder puff or brush.

Soft Smoky Eyes For Day or Night


Get the Look….smoky eyes done in soft pastels as seen here on Kate Hudson look gorgeous day and night. To get the look apply a sheer wash of a pale, light catching hue around the lashline, sweep what’s left on the brush over the eyelids. Try Goddess Eye Dust from beth bender beauty.

Beth’s beauty tip: Curl your lashes and add a touch of brown mascara to the tips to keep the look soft and delicate. Use your Get in Line Eyeliner Kit to get perfectly shaped smoky eyes and use the fuller end of brush to soften the line as seen here on Kate.

Give Your Skin a Heathy Glow

The winter is usually the time when we begin counting the days until we can once again bask in the warm sun and leave our parka’s and wool sweaters packed away for at least four months. I for one am not a big fan of the cold and one of the reason’s why I relocated to Los Angeles almost three years ago.

One way to give yourself a quick pick me up is to use a little bronzing powder or cream. It will give your skin a beautiful glow and you’ll feel like you just got back from the beaches in St Tropez. During the month of January beth bender beauty is giving your skin a little extra glow with Sunkiss All Over Shimmer. For each purchase of any beth bender beauty products recieve a complimentary sample. Our gift to you!

If you are a bronzer goddess you might try Soak up the sun bronzer, also from beth bender beauty and a favorite of Evangeline Lilly from the hit show Lost.

Get Sexy Hollywood Eyes Like Beyonce


Nothing makes the white of your eyes stand out more than lining them with an indigo liner says celebrity artist Beth Bender. As seen on Beyonce here. To get this crisp blue-bordered gaze, start by wetting a slant tip eyeliner brush. It will allow for a more precise line and a deeper color.

Apply a shimmery navy powder shadow across your lashlines making sure to start at the outer corner and work the brush towards the inner corner where you will want to apply the least amount of color. Try Betty Blu Eye Dust, $16 at

Not sure you can create the eyeliner but you love the look? Try the Get in Line Eyeliner Stencil Kit to do these Cat eyes and let them do the work for you.

Lash Flash For Gorgeous Lashes and Eyes


Want a gorgeous gaze like Kelly Ripa? Try adding a few lash clusters to the ends of each upper lashline. You’ll build sexy volume only where you need it and they are so easy to use.

To do Beth suggests adding a dot of glue to the back of one hand and then dabbing the knot of lash into the glue. Slip the lash into the lashline without touching the eyelid and wait at least 30 seconds before applying the next cluster.

Once all of the lashes have been applied wait for a few minutes until the glue is dry and go over lashes with one or two coats of mascara.

For sultry sexy cat eyes as seen here on Kelly, start by using your Get in Line Eyeliner Stencil System to create perfect cat eyes and then finish with the lashes.


Scarlett Johansson loves her Get in Line Kit to create perfect eyes, $36 at

Quick Beauty Tips For Hollywood Eyes


Combining turquoise and jet black eye shadows sounds strange but the result is gorgeous and gives the eyes a way more powerful punch as seen here on Penelope Cruz. Blue shadow can be a bit intimidating to wear alone because of its boldness, and black is certainly severe, but mixing the two colors creates a deep colorful glow.

To do Beth suggests lining the top lash line with a gel liner so the color stays put and then retracing with a bright blue powder. Try Onyx Gel Liner and Betty Blu Eye Dust both from beth bender beauty to create this look as seen here on Penelope Cruz.

betty-blu-shadow.jpg Carrie Underwood loves Betty Blu Eye Dust, $16 at beth bender beauty

Beth’s beauty trick: For “knock out eyes”, add another hint of tint by dabbing a touch of blue mascara on the tips of your top lashes.

Quick Beauty Tips For Hollywood Eyes


GET THE LOOK: Thick Cleopatra like eyeliner goes well with smoky eyes, but if you want to subtly simmer, try a gradually thinning line, seen here on Angelina Jolie. Use a gel liner to draw a thin rim along upper lashlines. Try Onyx from beth bender beauty. Go over the outer half of each eye one more time, and extend slightly beyond the eye.

INSIDER TRICK: The secret to this look: Line the bottom corner of each eye to accentuate the outer edge and create an exotic almond shape. If done correctly, outer corners will look like a sideways capital Y.

You’ll be purring perfect cat eyes all day long. For purrfect cat eyes using a powder shadow use the Get in Line Stencil kit. Available at

Last week when I returned home from New York I got a last minute call from a client who was attending an important party and needed me to make her beautiful. I was on my way to Big Bear for New Years and didn't have my full kit with me but luckily had everything I needed except a mascara.
For any of you who have been reading our beauty blogs then you know how picky I am about mascara. Shu Uemura, Prescriptives and Dior are in the top three but they will now be joined by Covergirls Lash Blast Mascara which saved me this weekend and is the first over the counter mascara that actually does what it says.
While skimming through this months Lucky Magazine at CVS I happened to see a review from one of the beauty editors on Lash Blast. She said that she could not believe how amazing her lashes looked and for the money ($7.99) I was willing to give it a try.

I grabbed two tubes, and was off to work. Instead of the usual cat eye that my client loved, tonight she was all about the smoky eye. We decided to do a smoky eye in plum and mix in a medium purple for shading. I used All About me Eye Dust and a touch of Love Candy for shading and blending. I used her Get In Line Eyeliner kit to get the perfect smoky eye shape and perfect bottom eyeliner. Once the eyes were done we finished with the Lash Blast Mascara and wow!! Her lashes were long, full and totally maxed out like they promised.


Cover Girls Lash Blast Mascara, available at CVS, Target, Kmart, Ulta and most drugstores

I took a tube with me to Big Bear and someone actually thought I was wearing false lashes. The brush is amazing and it doesn't clump when you are applying to your lashes. I think Cover Girl may have something here and for $7.99 you may want to stock up because once the word gets out they won't be able to keep this in stock.
