Today my lovely friend Nascar Camping World Truck Series and Nascar Nationwide Series driver, Jennifer Jo Cobb is making history at the final race of the season at Homestead Speedway in Miami.

Jennifer is the only full time female driver in any of the top three Nascar series, and today becomes the highest ranked female driver of all time in Nascar. On top of that she is the first driver in Nascar to bring a makeup sponsor to the sport.
Jennifer’s primary sponsor today is LillysCosmetics.com. She will be driving a pink Lillys Cosmetics Ford F150, and wearing a pink Lillys cosmetics firesuit.

All week I’ve been posting the Jennifer Jo Cobb makeup looks that you can duplicate with products from LillysCosmetics.com.
Today I’m celebrating Jennifer’s huge achievement with 10 pink gift giving ideas for the holiday season. (Jennifer’s truck is the #10)

1.) Limited Edition Clarisonic Mia Hope

I swear by my Clarisonic! 

With every purchase of the Limited Edition  Clarisonic Mia Hope Clarisonic will make a donation to help women with cancer to look and feel like themselves again.

2.) A girl needs to smell fabulous too! Enjoy the naughtiness of Agent Provocateur on your wrists, throat, and all your other kissable places.

3.) Celebrate your gorgeous derriere with fun pink undies from Kiki de Montparnasse.
A bow here, a wiggle there – what more could a girl ask for?

4.) Pink diamond earrings. Fabulous!

5.) A pink ceramic watch from Michael Kors. Completely lovely.

6.) The Pink Room Candles. I found these on one of my favorite blogs, Flat Out Fabulous

7.) A cerise or rose pink pashmina. A beautiful accessory as well as the perfect throw to take with you when traveling. Real pashmina is both lightweight and warm, and ideal for air travel.

8.) Pink Frette Sheets.
I don’t actually know anyone with pink Frette sheets, but the thought of them is just delicious!

9.) Juicy Couture Bath Caviar. A Juicy Girl needs a little luxury, so why not add some coral extracts of youth and vitality to your bath of glory?

10.) What better celebration of the pure pinkness of it all than a Pink CD? Every girl needs her Funhouse!

Prior work commitments meant I couldn’t be in Miami with Jen and the crew to celebrate today, but I will make it home in time to watch her race tonight, so I will be there in spirit! And keeping with today’s pink theme I’ll be drinking one of these:


The perfect (pink) Cosmopolitan!

Good luck Jen!

Easy Daily Makeup

In celebration of Nascar Camping World Truck Series racer Jennifer Jo Cobb bringing the first ever makeup sponsorship to Nascar we are running a series of makeup tutorials showing how to get Jen’s various looks using products from LillysCosmetics.com

Jennifer will be wearing a LillysCosmetics.com pink firesuit this coming weekend as she races the final race of the season at Homestead in Miami, in her pink LillysCosmetics.com #10 truck.
Now that we’re only 2 days away from the big race we’re going to show you a simple day to day makeup look that you can do using products from LillysCosmetics.com

This look is all about being quick and efficient, doing something fabulous when you only have 10 minutes til you have to be out the door.
1.) With the clock running, do a high speed under eye concealer, and blend it out with your finger til its nice and sheer.
2.) Follow that with some speedy foundation – try Mineral Powder foundation, swirled on with a powder brush.
3.) Use a Brow Definer Pencil to fill in and feather through your brows. This will pull your look together and make it complete.
4.) With a synthetic camouflage brush apply Vanilla Eyesicles Eye Color from the lash line across the lids, working it in evenly and fading it out just above the crease of the eye.
5.) With an Angle Blender brush pick up some Copper Glow Mineral Eye Color and sweep it from side to side through the crease and slightly above the crease of the eye. Turn the brush to its flat side and press color into the outer corners of the eyes.
6.) Run some Deep Brown Eyeliner Pencil through the lash line, and smudge it a little so that it doesn’t look too heavily lined. Follow this with a couple of high speed coats of Ultimate Black mascara.
7.) Dust some Desert Sun Shimmer Mineral Bronzing Powder across the areas the sun would hit – the forehead, tops of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and a little on the chin. This will liven your look up and make you look fresh and sunkissed. Even in mid-winter!
8.) Jen loves Berry tones and deep browns when it comes to lipsticks, so line your lips with Dark Berry liner and fill them in with Boysenberry Cream lipstick.

Still got a minute to spare? Use the Facial Highlighting Pen at the inner and outer corners of the eye, the upper cheekbone, and anywhere else you’d like to reflect a little light. Keep the Facial Highlighting pen in your handbag for touch ups throughout the day.

Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing, Rocking It In Dallas

This past weekend I went to Dallas to watch my good friend
Jennifer Jo Cobb racing at Texas Motor Speedway.

even in a helmet Jen manages to look gorgeous!

Jennifer races in the Nascar Camping World Truck Series.

She’s the only girl racer in the entire Nascar series.
(Later this year Danica Patrick will be back in the Nascar Nationwide Series)
On the track you’d never know a girl was behind the wheel
but walking around she infuses an unmistakable sense of glamour.
She’s gorgeous, has the body of a supermodel, and a mane of thick, long red hair
that you can spot a mile off.

As well as being super fabulous, she is super fun!
Her team adores her, and she comfortably and seamlessly transitions from
high heels and lip gloss to hanging out with the boys.

waiting to make her practice runs at Texas Motor Speedway.

On raceday we had an hour long autograph session, outside, with the temperature over 100 degrees plus humidity.
There were long lines of dedicated fans braving the heat to get au tographs.
Nascar has 71 million fans here in the USA, 40% of whom are female.
These girls get super excited to see and meet a girl racer,
who is not only lovely looking, but is also very identifiable.
Jen has been a motivational speaker for years, and is able to put people at ease immediately.
Everyone comments on how easily they can relate to her, and she to them.

Just so happens the boys want to do some relating too!
Nothing quite like having a beautiful girl sign your arm…!

And of course, wherever Jen goes, the TV cameras are not far behind.
It seemed everywhere we went at the track there was a TV camera nearby.

After an hour in the heat I was so ready for some chill out time in the air conditioned race hauler,
but another legion of fans had lined up there too, waiting for the chance to meet her.
Not one to let people down, Jen sat out there for another hour, meeting and greeting.

At Driver Intro’s the TV folks found her again,
this time waiting in line with fellow rookie Brett Butler,
who drives the Fuel Doctor USA truck.

This was a night race, which I think is my favorite.
I watched from the pit box, which is my favorite place to be.
Right in the heart of it all!

Pit stops are so exhilarating to watch, especially when they’re only 3 feet away!

I sat with Crew Chief Steve Kuykendall, and listened in on radio to all the
crew chief/spotter/driver chat, which is actually really quite exciting!
Especially when they’re guiding a driver through and past the smoke and debris of a big crash,
and safely getting them to the other side at 178 mph!!

oh the humidity!!! Thanks to Moroccan Oil I didn’t have my usual damp air afro…

Jen actually ran her best race ever in Dallas, finishing a very cool 14th place.
There were 30 something in the race, so it could be argued that she dealt it to those boys!

And after 2 hours racing in punishing heat,
she still managed to look stunning at the end of the race!
