Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, Milissa S.? Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey at Joie

A few weeks ago, I had a doozy of a day. Don’t get me wrong it was an amaaaaazing, unbelievably productive day – what with a shoot and 3 events to attend that evening.

The stage for the evening was set with the first event I attended at the oh-so-fashionable Joie on Melrose. The champagne was flowing, chocolate delicacies were being passed around and – lucky for me -there were Stila makeup touchups and Kristie Streicher feathered brow shapings going on!

Getting the "feathered brow" from the Kristie Streicher brow goddesses

Perfect to prep me pretty for a busy fun – yet working – evening out!

In the midst of all this, I spotted this gorgeous girl with perfectly shaped, feathered brows wearing the perfect summer raspberry lipcolor. A double Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday opportunity!!

Actress - and our WWW girl - Milissa S. sporting a sweet summer raspberry lip - the perfect pop for a Hollywood summer night

So you know what I had to ask!!

BF: I love your lipcolor! I love your brows! I’m Dawn by the way. What’s your name?

WWW: Milissa S.

BF: Well, Milissa S., I gotta ask ya – Whatcha’ Wearin’? And who did your brows?

WWW:Kristie Streicher and her team did my brows, of course! And the lipcolor is Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey. I love it!

BF: Well, we do too! I can’t wait to try Stila Color Balm Lipstick for myself! And after hearing who shaped her gorgeous brows, I sat right down for a feathered brow shape-up with the Kristie Streicher brow goddesses! And I was pleased as punch with the results!

And – I have to add – I just barely avoided going home with this new friend.

Coveting: This Joie Kennedy Tote handbag in Daphne blue

I tried to be responsible, beauties. I really did. But I keep dreaming about this Joie Kennedy Tote handbag ($158). Oh, what to do!? Looks like it’s time to start a very important letter.

Dear Santa….





BF Asks: Have you tried Stila Color Balm Lipstick? 

Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, Stacey J?

Makeup was the last thing I was thinking about when I walked into my agent’s office last week for an audition. I had a way-too-fun night the night before at the El Rey for The Mavericks’ show with my friend, director Trey Fanjoy who was in town from Nashville. Her love, Eddie, is their dynamo lead guitarist and they brought the americana rock to LA. My head was a bit cloudy and champagne was still swilling in my post-Conga-line brain. Yes, you read that right. We conga-lined through the El Rey. I would say the audience was less than pleased with this. But we had FUN!!

So when I walked into AVO and saw the lovely Stacey J. whip out a lip color to reapply, I wasn’t really thinking about Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday. But when she glided on the punchy pink color, no amount of conga brain could keep me from asking, Whatcha’ Wearin’, Stacey J?

Whatcha' Wearin', Stacey J?

WWW Stacey J: It’s Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I buy them in spades whenever I can. It’s my go-to lip color of choice!

The scoop? Maybelline New York's Baby Lips in Pink Punch

BF: Well, I can see why!! It’s gorge!! Would you be willing to be my WWW girl?


WWW Stacey J: Absolutely!!

And how could she not be, beauties, with this lovely lip look?

If you want to look polished and pretty with a punchy, pink lip like Stacey J, check out Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. It’ll perk up even the most champagne-hazed face!



BF Asks: What is your perk-up lip color of choice? 

Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, Kerry Washington?

Does Django Unchained & Scandal star, Kerry Washington, ever not look gorgeous with a capital “G”?

Take the example of her at the Academy Awards this past Sunday where she presented.
I mean she’s flawless.


Her hair, her dress, her jewels, her poise, her makeup.

Well, I can’t help you with the first 4 of those but I am here with the “how-to” on how to achieve her Oscars red carpet look!

Achieve her gorgeous look at home on your own gorgeous face!





BF Asks: Who was your glamorous beauty pick from Sunday’s Oscars?

Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, Hannah D? She’s such a rebel!

So this past Friday, I was in a great mood and was almost skipping at The Grove after seeing Silver Linings Playbook. I celebrate on Fridays. In fact, I call them Friday Fundays!

But I digress. I decided to spend the rest of the afternoon writing with a glass of Cab Franc and some swiss fondue accompanied by green apples and broccoli at my fave Grove hangout, Morels. A free Friday afternoon is an exquisite luxury to me, folks.

As I wandered into Morels, I spotted a gorgeous hostess with the most strikingly seductive lipstick I have ever seen. All at once I thought of what it would be like Bond girls and vampire goddesses in Anne Rice novels procreated. That’s a good thing, y’all.

Hannah D: She's such a REBEL.

I walked up to the hostess, gave her my card and asked if I could feature her as this week’s WWW girl. She said yes and that she was honored.

BF: What’s your name?
WWW: Hannah D.

BF: And tell me what divine lip color that is? Who makes it? What’s it called? Where can I get it? Like yesterday!

WWW: MAC Rebel. I love it.

BF: How did you find this lovely lip?

WWW: This is terrible but I love trying on all of the different colors at MAC across the fountain right before work. I get to try a new one every time I work!

BF: Terrible? Pashaw! That’s both fabulous and BRILLIANT! Kudos, my fellow lipcolor-loving new friend!

And, beauties, that is how our WWW girl today, Hannah D, can teach us how to bring a little beauty into our lives every day by making the most of the moment and the location.



BF Asks: Are you our next WWW girl? Email me a pic with your must-have makeup love. The kind that inspires people to ask, “Whatcha’ wearin’?” 


Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday: Beyonce at President Obama’s 2013 Inauguration

Is there anything Beyonce can’t do?  Superstar chanteuse, actress, spokesmodel, mogul, mom, wife and fashion and beauty icon, Beyoncé, sang the National Anthem beautifully during the 2013 Inauguration and everyone was left talking about her…MAKEUP!

Famed celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal, who gave her this signature, showstopping look for this historical day, shares her beautifying tips and tricks with us on how to steal this lovely look.

Beyonce & her celebrity makeup artist & friend, Mally Roncal

1) To first set the skin, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer all over the face and my Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.

2) To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply my Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of my NEW Diamond Unpowder that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on my Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.

3) To achieve a rich, smokey eye – try my Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply this all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from the Mally Beauty In the Buff Palette and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of my Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Chocolate Diamond on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye followed by using my Lightwand Eyebrightener to the inner corners to instantly brighten this area. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to QVC.com).

4) Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look – such as the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and/or my NEW Instant Impact Mascara. To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips try my High Shine Lip Gloss in Mally’s Look or Mally’s Baby.

5) And last but not least, before you leave the house, apply the Mally Beauty Face Defender to lock your makeup in place and Perfect Prep Hydrating Under Eye Brightener to make the eyes pop!

Mally notes to BeautyFrosting that anyone can achieve this easy-to-wear look at home. It works on all ages, skin type and color!

These essentials from Mally Beauty can be found on QVC.com and MallyBeauty.com.




BF Asks: What’s your favorite Beyonce look of all time?

BF Asks: What holiday movies are you most excited about seeing?

WWW: Julie C. – an old friend’s photo-fabulous lipcolor on Facebook caught my eye!

So, readers are often asking how I pick a WWW (Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday) girl. I’ve been asked if I ever pick them from my friends, online, on Facebook, from pictures, etc.

In this case, yes, yes, yes and yes.
Meet Julie C:

Julie C. and her concert-“reddy”, perfect red pout in Bobbi Brown Burnt Red

I met Julie in college and we have seen each other a number of times since then – what with weddings, showers, college reunions and even a trip to Santa Rosa, Florida for our mutual dear friend, Cathleen’s 30th birthday!

So, Julie is no stranger on the street to me. But, even with all that, when I saw this pic of her flashing a gorgeous smile with a gorgeous shade of red (along with her college sweetheart-husband, Matt) on Facebook, I had to ask Whatcha’ wearing’, Julie?

 BF: Julie, yet again, that is a gorgeous picture of you and Matt! You have to tell me what you’re wearing in this picture! I loooove that lipstick! What is it? (Too gushy?)

Julie C: Bobbi Brown Burnt Red Lipstick 
with a little Bobbi Brown high shimmer lip gloss over it!

BF: Where did you wear it? Or, shall I say, where did you rock it?

Julie C: Wore it to the Black Keys concert with my husband, Matt, and best friends

Our WWW girl Julie & her husband, Matt

BF: How did you decide on that shade?

Julie C: I love the pop of color and how it makes my lips show up in pictures!
I knew I wanted a red lipstick, and I picked it after trying out several at the Bobbi Brown counter.

BF: Is this a shade you always wear or is it a special occasion shade?

Julie C: Definitely a special occasion shade OR if I’m wearing very understated outfit–like black jeans and white t-shirt. My signature shade is usually Bobbi Brown Brownie.

BF: Did you keep the rest of your makeup simple, etc.?

Julie C: Yes, I keep the rest of my make-up simple… I do like a red cheek though!

BF: What beauty tips/rituals did your mom teach you?

Julie C: My mom dragged me to the Clinque counter my junior year of college! She was always helpful in not overdoing makeup, just making it look fresh and simple. With a pop of lipstick!
She has always been good about her nighttime routine of face washing and moisturizing. And got me into the routine as well.

BF: You have a beautiful daughter, Annie. What beauty rituals and lessons are you planning on passing on to her?

Julie C:  Annie is 9–tear(!)–and now just started getting into my make-up! We have purchased lip glosses so far. I’ve also taught her how to use my lipstick for the lips and then the cheeks for her dance competitions. But not TOO much! Just enough to make her feel good and still her age at those crazy dance events!

BF: Oh my goodness! Where has the time gone? Good plan on the lip gloss! I might have a few tips for you on that! I also highly suggest getting her into a skincare routine at 12. The Clinique counter is a great place to start! Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous shade and beautiful beauty tips with us! Also, Julie, this photo you took of your kids, George & Annie,  is BREATHTAKING!!!

Whatcha Wearin’ Wednesday: Sasha’s Naked Eyes

Welcome to another week of Whathca’ Wearin’ Wednesday (WWW)!

I spotted Sasha’s sultry eyes as she was helping me and my friends pick out some cute wardrobe pieces and jewelry, at one of my fave L.A. Boutiques, Veronica M. (http://www.veronicamclothing.com/) on Beverly Blvd.

This is Sasha, a photographer and Veronica M. expert:


Eyes: Sasha is wearing Urban Decay Naked Palette

BF: Hey there! Whatcha wearin’?

Sasha: “Urban Decay Naked Eye Palette on Sephora.com ($50). I used the shades on the left of the palette: (Naked, Sidecar and Buck).”

BF: “Well, I love it. Can I take your picture?”

And now you see how these little WWW moments happen!

I actually had the palette at home and I felt inspired so here I am trying those 3 shades, as well as a highlight shade under the brow, mixing Sin & Virgin (see BF face chart).

Why, oh why, do I make such weird faces when I’m taking photos for y’all? It’s embarrassing. But it’s done with love and with the thought that it showcases the colors better. Really.

Super-easy, beauties!
