You guys! I have a beauty confession to make. I have been wearing golden looking eyes for the past few weeks. I guess it started around Thanksgiving. I just can’t stop applying gold eyeshadow to my eyes. I did it last year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I only put gold eyeshadow on my eyes a few times since then. It has now become a problem since I wear it everyday. I can blend the gold with black eyeshadow or brown eyeshadow. I can use pink or purples too. I even use my illuminators as eyeshadow. I just put a primer on first. This tutorial from Shaaanxo is a nice golden eyeshadow look for Christmas, any holiday, or any day period. I guess I will be doing this tomorrow.
I love how flowers can inspire beauty in everything…even makeup and beauty trends. These colors are a little wild, but I think they look great on everybody. Check them out below. Photos from Reason to Breathe, Sephora, and Target.
Here is a really hard looking, but actually easy to do, glitter eye makeup tutorial from Beat Face Honey. She makes really good beauty tutorials on Youtube. This one is great because she doesn’t use that many eyeshadow colors and only a few glitter colors. She also breaks the steps down in an easy to comprehend way.
Can you believe it has been three years since I started my blog on January 3rd, 2009?!?!? Madness!!! This blog has been through a lot. It basically started out as a hobby that soon turned into my beloved MFA fashion journalism graduate thesis. I have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this blog. After enduring crashes and late nights, fashion weeks and not so stellar fashion events, I met some amazing people, made some great friends, and had some awesome opportunities that would not have come my way if not for this blog. I love my readers, and I am happy to announce that even though I am graduating in May…the blog will live on and continue to grow. In honor of my blog’s birthday, I personally bought these prizes especially for you. I am giving away an 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette and Travel Brush Set from Crown Brushes. I hope you enjoy! Contest directions are below. Photos from Crown Brushes.
July 4th is coming up which means it’s time to Party! What better time to try out this year’s beauty trends than now. Summer’s all about being bright and that is the main inspiration for our party looks.
Try a Bold Lip
Bold lips have been hot on the runways during fashion week. The best colors would be colors that resemble fruits. Like watermelon pink and citrusy orange. Matte or glossy, whichever works for the size of your lips. Remember that moisturizing is key to make the color last.
