10 Fabulous Pink Gift Ideas

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!

Jennifer Jo Cobb Big Night Out!

Nascar Camping World Truck Series racer Jennifer Jo Cobb is making history again this weekend at the season’s final race at Homestead Speedway in Miami. She has been the only full time female racer this year in any of the top three Nascar series, she has achieved the highest points ranking ever for a female racer in Nascar, and now she is bringing the first ever makeup sponsor to the sport.
Each week 75 million fans tune in to watch Nascar, 40% of whom (approximately 30 million) are female. With those statistics alone you’d think the likes of L’Oreal, Clairol and Revlon would be all over the race cars, but unfortunately none of them are taking the time to speak to the extremely loyal Nascar fan base.

Until now that is.

This weekend Jennifer is bringing the first makeup entity to Nascar, with her sponsorship from LillysCosmetics.com
In honor of this partnership we have put together four different makeup looks that you can easily duplicate using products from LillysCosmetics.com. The Jennifer Jo Cobb Makeup looks have so far included her s
Signature look, a Thanksgiving look, a Quick and Easy Daily Makeup look, and now today we have the final piece of the Jennifer Jo Cobb collection, The Night Out look.

When I fly out to see Jennifer race, once the racing is done, if time and our flight schedules etc permit, we’ll fix our hair and makeup, strap on some high heels and go out for the night.

Fantastic fun!

I’m always thinking up some new look for us to wear, and this is the latest. We haven’t actually worn this one out yet, but hopefully in the next few weeks we will.

This look is all about a really dark, super smoky eye. The eye needs to be the main feature, so everything else has to be completely toned down. The skin should be pale with just a faint hint of blush – no bronzer. Lips need to be a pale, soft gloss, nothing competing with the very bold eye.

Start out by really taking time to conceal and color correct under your eyes, and apply a full cover foundation. This look is all about a flawless looking skin.
Use the Highlighter Pen to enhance the under eye area and up through the top of the cheekbone.
Next use a really soft and delicate blush shade, such as Pink Petals Mineral Cheek Color, and create a soft wash of color up and over the cheekbone.

Next use a Black Eyeliner pencil to rim the lash line. Work the liner in thicker than usual, then take a
Chisel Fluff  Brush and Black Pearl Mineral Eye Color, and start working the eye shadow through the liner and up onto the lid. First press the dark shadow into the liner, then start building the color, using a swirling motion to graduate the color up and over the crease. This will give you depth and intensity at the lash line and help you to fade the color out as it moves higher up the eye.
Use a Soft Fan Brush to constantly sweep away eye shadow that drops below the eye.
Next take a clean brush and some Moonstone Mineral Eye Color and swirl the color from the brow line down to the crease, meeting and overlapping the darker shade.
Using the Mini Oval Smudger brush and some Coal Mineral Eye Color, make the upper lash line deeper, darker and more smoky, then use whats left on the brush to come under the lower lashes to finish out the smoky effect.
This look requires tons and tons of mascara!! Apply Ultimate Black mascara liberally to the lashes, both top and bottom. To kick it up another couple of notches use false eyelashes. Medium black flare individual lashes or a strip of lashes will both look sensational!

Finish out the look with a very soft pink lipgloss such as Pink Diamonds NouriShine lip gloss from LillysCosmetics.com

Make sure you watch Jen race and cheer her on on Friday night on the Speed Channel!

Also I’d like to say a special thank you to Lillys Cosmetics for acknowledging  the tens of millions of female fans who support Nascar racing, and for choosing my gorgeous friend Jennifer Jo Cobb to fly their colors this weekend.

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.
