SO excited for the NEW SEASON of AHS: Hotel with LADY GAGA starring as The Countess. She’s not really a vampire but this look could work great if you wanted to create a sexy, glam vampire look for Halloween. Her character is described as a hemophiliac (which is a greek word which basically means blood-lover). I wanted to get this video up earlier in the week but I was in Boston to speak on a panel and then went to SALEM!! (… more on that coming up soon ..) and hotel wifi was SLOW AF and I couldn’t upload a video from there (or watch Up in the Air for the 100th time — snap family knows how I feel about this! lol) Love you all!

This look is loosely based off of this one that I wore while in Miami back in May. The two colors I love most for fall are mauve & olive green so I decided to incorporate them into this look. It can be as dramatic or as subtle as you like, I always encourage tweaking a look to fit your preferences, style, or mood. It’s still pretty warm here in NY so this is kind of a transitional look with the glossy lips & glowing, highlighted skin. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Skin Illuminating powders are incredible & I also love the Jeffree Starr liquid lipsticks. I need to go buy more.

The “Baking” or “Cooking” technique is one that I had been playing with for years .. before it became a “trend”. I would love to use powder to bump up & intensify highlights at the sides of the nose (to make it look thinner) and along the underside of my cheek contour to really carve it out further and kick up the contrast! There are SO many benefits to “baking” your face:





- MINIMIZES THE APPEARANCE OF PORES (especially because you’re applying loose powder with a dampened beauty blender sponge)

Here, I’ll show you:

I will say that in theory, it might seem like A LOT of makeup but I will say that the concealer I use is very thin in consistency so it doesn’t ever end up looking cakey. If you have dry skin, you may benefit in finishing this all off with a few mists of MAC Fix+. If you have oilier skin, you know that anything will look dewy on your skin in about an hour or so!

I recently came across a photo-morph of Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox by artist Pedro Berg Johnsen online and was mesmerized. Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox have constantly been compared to one another for their looks and overall bad-girl vibe. I wanted to recreate the look but also have fun and turn this into a little bit of a transformation of my own. In the past, I’ve transformed myself into Iggy Azalea and even, Eminem.

From as far back as I can remember up until now, I cannot recall a single girl I’ve ever known that hasn’t ever brought up the subject of hair in conversation. Every female friend or relative I’ve ever had has at some point talked about their hair – what they love about it, what they wish was different, what they plan on doing to it.


A woman’s hair is always telling a story. Her hair is, in many ways, an extension of herself. We’ve all witnessed at least one girl cry over a haircut that didn’t go as planned. Some of us have been that girl. While bald can be daringly beautiful, many women feel their hair is a large part of their femininity.

It’s a common scene in any woman’s life: experimenting with boxed dyes over our bathroom sinks, risking the health of our hair and potentially hundreds of dollars at the salon the next day to try to fix what we probably should have left to a professional in the first place. At that same moment, other women just like you and others you know are being robbed of their locks by illness and disease.

If you’re a woman that loves her own hair, it’s impossible not to have sympathy and compassion for another that’s lost all of hers. Join the Pantene Beautiful Lengths #8or8 challenge by going to their site and finding out how you can help make a difference in another woman’s life right now.

September 8th is National Donate Your Hair Day. While my hair is super-long, it’s unfortunately not virgin (remember my ombre experiment?) so instead, I donated my own money to the cause. You have the option of donating 8 inches of your hair or $8 (or more, if you wish) to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths cause. To donate, click here.

joan-rivers-jessica-harlow-blogORIGINALLY POSTED ON SEPT. 4TH 2014:

I’ve had this Joan Rivers post on my to-do list since last year and have kept putting it off and putting it off. I did not want to write it since she had been admitted into the hospital as I didn’t want to even consider the thought that she wouldn’t make it through. But, today, with a heavy heart, I’m taking the time to reflect on some of the things that made me admire Joan Rivers ever since I could remember. I was first introduced to Joan Rivers in the 90s when she appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show and remember Joan saying something about, “I’d rather see a new face come out of an old car than an old face coming out of a new one.” And there, even though I was maybe around 7 years old, my lifelong friendship with Joan Rivers began. Ever since, Joan had always been someone I turned to when I needed a laugh or some light-hearted yet poignant advice. For years, her face — or faces ;) — have graced inspiration boards + collages as a reminder of what a hard-working woman can achieve and that it’s never too late to succeed.



Joan Rivers’ husband and father to her daughter, Edgar Rosenberg, had committed suicide. This was a very difficult time for both Joan and her daughter, Melissa. Part of Joan’s coping & grieving process was to include jokes about her late husband’s suicide in her stand-up routine. I learned through this, from very young, that if you want to create distance between yourself and a horribly painful event, find a way to laugh about it. Nothing that has happened to me in my life is off-limits. I joke and laugh about it all. My motto is: if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.

C A T E G O R Y: Things I Learned From...

The key to pulling off an almost entirely see-through outfit? Act as if it’s the most normal thing anyone could ever wear.

Hello gorgeous,
Not too long ago, I was invited to Féria’s #LiveInColor event by L’Oréal. I was mainly there to check out the performances by ASTR & Elliphant as discovering new music acts is always something I’m up for.  The first up was ASTR wearing my favorite of the new Féria shades, “Power Copper”.

This is just a portion of my space but I wanted to give a little taste as everyone always asks me to do a room tour. It’s still very much a work in progress and I feel like I’ve been tweaking the space a lot over the past year, adding little things, taking away others, reorganizing constantly. I get bored very easily so it’s not unusual for me to spend an hour moving furniture around every now and then to see “how it feels.” This is where I truthfully spend most of my time and I was excited about some items I received from our friends over at Lulu & Georgia. They gave me a discount code to give to you guys to get 20% off your purchase: Harlow20.

Almost anybody can apply one shade of foundation all over their face and walk out the door – in fact, most people do this – but what really makes all the difference is contouring and highlighting. One shade of foundation all over the face can make it look quite flat and to really bring out the planes and show off the dimension, we need to add shades and highlights, much like an artist does for portraits. Plus, who doesn’t want cheekbones that look like they can cut glass?
