stained lips fall 2014 beauty trends 5

Two reaons this is going to be your favorite make up trend this winter: 1) You can skip the make up part all together and just drink two glasses of red wine at the beginning of the evening without having to explain to anyone or checking your lips every 5 minutes 2) You can put on this make up and don’t care about what you eat&drink or kiss all day long because it simply can’t smudge.

How to achieve? First frame your lips with a nude lipliner or lipstick, then use a lip marker or apply the lipstick, lip pencil or crayon of your choice by dabbing your finger lightly on your inner lips. For the ombre look you can use a lighter & darker shade of the same color or simply dab more inside and less closer to the lip frame.

GoldenEye

GoldenEye

gold eye2

Couple of days ago when I saw a beautiful girl out in the daylight with a super natural golden eye shadow and no other makeup on her face (of whom I wanted to take a photo so bad but was afraid to look like a freak) I realized that gold eye makeup is an overlooked fraction of daily beauty routine as well as party looks. Especially now that it’s officially winter and we all need that little shimmer around our eyes to replace the gleam in them, I propose we lightly use gold eyeshadow especially around the inner eye corner if not under brows and compliment with black mascara only. I refuse to give in to the winter moodiness, not quite yet.

Bushiest Of Them All

Bushiest Of Them All

beautiful bushy eyebrows

This bold, bushy eyebrow trend is a blessing and a curse at the same time for us millenial generation; strikingly beautiful yet can turn into a disaster in wrong hands. I know a handful of people going overboard with painting in their brows and even changing the shape to an unnatural rectangle, who will regret their weird photos in the future. As someone who had her share of bizarre eyebrows over the years, I know better than to pluck too much and paint where there naturally isn’t a thread of hair. I don’t have a Brooke Shields or Cara Delevingne pair of brows and it’s no use following tutorials to make yourself look like them; you just have to work with what you have, know how to groom and shape.

Runway Beauty for Halloween

Runway Beauty for Halloween

Halloween Makeup Inspiration From Runway | Yohji Yamamato FW2014Those freakish beauty looks on runways that non-fashion people never ever understand and usually make fun of are actually there for a reason. No, not for the sake of the show or as an artistic aspect of the collection, you’re wrong. It exists only and solely for Halloween inspiration. But why choose to put on crazy ass makeup on Halloween instead of becoming a character? 1) It is original and there will be no one with the same look. 2) Who has the time & money to look for costumes anyway? It is perfect for the lazy girl, something you can do within a few hours notice of a party. 3) You can be as candid as when you were a kid playing with your mother’s toiletry.

If you’re convinced, here are 30 runway beauty looks that would be perfect Halloween inspiration.

Platinum Challenge

Platinum Challenge

The Fashion Medley | Platinum ChallengeOk first of all I know that the hair above is beyond platinum but it was so freakin beautiful that I had to put it here. Second of all, I’ve never wanted to do anything with my hair more than I want to dye it platinum blonde right now. I hardly believe that it would work on me; a wheat skinned girl with black brows, high cheekbones and a big nose, most probably I’d look just as bad as I did last Halloween with the “Sandy” wig. But I still want to give it a try, so so bad. Two things holding me back: 1) the effort and money that will go into dyeing it every 2 weeks (I’m extremely lazy when it comes to hair) 2) my non-dyed silky hair will be ruined forever.

Have you tried it? Do you have any comments or recommendations? Should I give it a go?

In Too Deep

In Too Deep

burberry ss2015 Deep red lipsIt’s almost impossible to describe this particular and exquisite shade of red. It’s not burgundy, definitely not maroon. Not apple red, pretty sure not vermillion either. Closest I can come is Venetian red, or to put it more simply, a deep red. Perfect for fall make up (and spring 2015 make up, thinks Christopher Bailey for Burberry), this shade would look good on every skin tone and for every occasion. How do  I know? MAC Ruby Woo – which I can crown as the king of all lipsticks in the world – is the only shade of lipstick I’ve ever worn, will ever wear with confidence day & night. Hint: choose a matte lipstick in a rich hue for a more refined and striking look & always use a lipliner.
