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.

To School For Cool

To School For Cool

two braids styleWith Alexa Chung fearlessly embracing her double braids yet again watching the Topshop Unique show at London Fashion Week, school braids are back under the microscope. Besides the Lolita charm and the effect to unwomanize any look, school braids have always been my favorite since it’s the only way I can actually twist my short hair into a braid long enough to show and see it. Yay for being too school for cool.

Less is Really Less

Less is Really Less

tory burchWhen it comes to Spring/Summer 2015 runway, less make up means no make up at all. So take good care of your skin this winter, we won’t be using anything other than moisturizer or simply a BB or a CC cream (have no idea what they are and how they are used) next spring. A peachy pink blush, silicone brushed rimmel and shiny lipglosses are also allowed & thick and bushy eyebrows are encouraged.

Most Beautiful Flaw

Most Beautiful Flaw

perfect-frecklesaI honestly can’t believe that people are thinking of freckles as a “flaw” because for me, it’s one of the most beautiful features a person can have. I don’t remember not thinking once that a freckled woman is beyond gorgeous. Every single woman on my “most beautiful in the world” list has freckles and I remember sitting down under the sun for hours when I was a teenager just for my imaginary freckles to pop up.

Point: if you’re struggling with your “flaw” right now, just please don’t. You are so freakin beautiful. Although I’m pretty sure you are feeling the same way I feel about people thinking curly hair is the awesomest thing in the world now. Just talk to me after a bath when there’s %90 humidity, right?
