VMA's 2011 Best Moment Highlights

Each year the MTV Video Music Awards usually consists of a lot of interesting moments from the exciting to the strange but somehow it always comes together to form the perfect mix. I decided to make a collage of some of the most interesting moments in my opinion which included Lady Gaga dressed as her alter ego Jo Calderone, seeing Jay Z and Kanye West perform together, The Britney Spears Tribute, Beyonce finally revealing her baby pump and the reaction Jay and Ye had when she did, the somewhat awkward moment of Lady Gaga presenting the award to Britney Spears, Exe's Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner reuniting on stage and presenting together infornt of her new beau Justin Bieber, and Chris Brown flying through the arena during his performance.

Beauty How To: Get rid of Shine & Control Oily Skin!


We all know about those dreaded photos where the flash makes our T zone shine so bright that it appears to be blinding the screen? Well okay maybe not blinding but you get the idea! Anyways, a gorgeous glow is one thing but an over shiny face can be a total beauty DON'T! So how do we get rid of that shiny appearance not only in photos but in real life as well? Simple, I came up with a few shine proof remedies that I'm sure will do the trick.


1. Start off with an Oil Free Face Wash. Whether you have oily skin or not, an oil free face wash is usually the best way to go. Not only is oil in products known to clog pores and breakout sensitive skin, but it will also add that extra unneeded shine. I recommend Neutrogena's Oil Free Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit (smells and feels so refreshing!)



2. Prime your face with a Mattifying Primer. Primer is such a great way to prep the face for makeup and investing in a mattifying one will help make sure you get rid of that unwanted shine while also making your makeup go on silky smooth.



3. Setting your face with Translucent Powder. Any type of powder will help absorb extra oil which is what creates a shiny face. Usually I would recommend a colored powder but if you already use powder as foundation you want to prevent a cakey look which is why I recommend translucent powder to top it all off. It prevents the "caked on" look while still giving a matte finish and controlling shine. My personal favorite is Makeup Forevers HD translucent powder.




4. Touching up with Oil Blotting Sheets. If you haven't tried them, now is the time! I am such a fan of oil blotting sheets because not only do they work amazing but they are so easy to use and carry around! They fit basically anywhere and they usually come in a pack of 50 so you have more than enough to last. I always buy the Clean & Clear brand sheets.


Bye Bye Shine!
