Hiding in the Shadow

While I think it’s clear I’m a big supporter of working your best feature and never shying away from a little risk in your look, sometimes hiding in the shadows can be just as fun. Life & Style Weekly features January Jones as their Beauty of the Week sporting winged out, wait for it, eye shadow rather than the typical liner. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve written many a’ blogs about the beauty that is winged out liner however, this concept allows for a hint of smoke rather than the usual defined line. January Jones puts her own spin on it by swiping the shade of lavender underneath her eye as well.
            I looked to Giselle’s Wild Flower 8 Stack Eye Shadow now listed for the amazing price of just $31. 50. The shades of purples and pinks in the collection are so complimentary to each other and perfect for achieving Jones’ look. Try to avoid the flashback to elementary school, it is in fact okay to combine purple and pink past the age of eight. I started with the lavender shade and topped it with the baby pink for the perfect color. Remember to leave the rest of the eye naked so it doesn’t end up looking like a smokey eye of pastels.
            Finally, finish the look with a berry shade of lipstick. I used Faces Beautiful Lipstick in Loveable to give my lips that kissable pout. Have fun trying the look!

A Rose Gold Glow

This season had brought in an abundance of rose gold watches, jewelry, and other accessories. But now it’s time to branch out and try the trend through our makeup. Some women like to be dripping in diamonds but radiating in a rose gold glow sounds like just as much fun. The May 2012 issue of Glamour Magazine (page 283) features an article on the power of spring fragrances. Unfortunately for the writer of this topic, I wasn’t at all focused on the perfume end but rather on the shimmery, mystical feel of the makeup.
As soon as I saw the beachy, almost wet look of the makeup, I instantly knew the perfect products to use would be Vincent Longo’s Liquid Eye Shadow. I coated the lid with the Silky Orange shade followed by a streak of the Bronze Shell to really achieve that gradual shift in pigment. Finally, I used the Sweet Magenta as the highlight reaching all the way up under my brow bone. The three colors melded together like sherbet which is actually making me want to eat some while I lounge on a beach somewhere. Ok, focus!
Finally, I wanted to get that perfect sun-kissed glow on my upper cheekbones so after using my Faces Beautiful Brush-On Liquid Mineral Makeup I dabbed on the Faces Beautiful Gia Mineral Blush The shades of baby pinks and tan lay perfectly over the flawless complexion the mineral makeup provides. Enjoy trying the look!

Oh Girl, You Bangin’!

Now although it can be a little offensive, whenever we hear the phrase “You’re banging” from the opposite sex, we most likely smile a bit to ourselves. However, we’re not referring to the pickup line today girls, instead we’re focusing on the hairdo. One of the biggest celebrity trends is the easy, breezy bang. Nicole Richie does it perfectly in this week’s UsWeekly issue I especially love the look done with somewhat kinky, undone waves throughout the rest of the hair. Another tip is to use a flat paddle brush when blowing our your bangs so it’s to avoid the 80’s cylinder look.
I always felt like bangs have a kind of retro-look to them. Now let’s be clear, this isn’t to advise you to pour as much blue eye shadow on yourself as possible and hit your lips with some neon fuchsia color (although the two looks separately could be fierce!) I’m absolutely loving the lavender look on nearly all skin tones for Spring and the Faces Beautiful Mineral Makeup Signature Quad in Enchanted is a gorgeous option. You can opt to the darkest or second to darkest shade on the overall lid. Usually, I like to use the second darkest to go for a more ethereal, softer look. Follow that with the baby pink shade and finally use the pale gray as your highlight. If you want to enhance the look for evening, take a little of the darkest color and apply it to the crease in the eye. Wing the pigment out a little and you’ve got an instant intensified look.
Keep the lips pouty and doll-like using Faces Beautiful Peony Mineral Gloss I mostly love the amount of gloss the tube provides you with, I feel like I’m never going to run out! Enjoy the look ladies!
