Jason Wu

I fell a bit in love with the gorgeous “Ming dynasty and 1940′s Hollywood” green lids at this Fall’s Jason Wu show – and, okay, that’s probably 85% because I’ve been hugely into dark green recently, but still. They were pretty! It’s admittedly not a combination that sounds like it would really work, but it totally does, right?

Head makeup artist Diane Kendal created the look using MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Tealo (lid) and MAC Eye Kohl in Minted (crease) to act as a base, then added Club and Kelly Green (pigment) on top. To finish off, she used Haute and Naughty on the lashes, Blooz Eye Kohl to the lashline, and Blacktrack to finish defining the cat-eye shape of the eye makeup. (source)

Currently loving… | Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2011

Sunday, January 15, 2012

I don’t typically… have feelings about clothes. Or like, lots of things, I suppose, but clothes in particular. I’ll go through phases, drowning myself in the theory behind structure for months and then bumming around in tees for the rest of the year.

These pieces, though? Feelings. Lots of them.

(And alright, so the emotions probably stem in part from the gorgeous wall colour rather than the clothes themselves, but all the same – they’re structurally gorgeous. I believe you’d find yourself hard-pressed to deny it, even if you’re the roll-out-of-bed-and-go type.)

(Though if you are, isn’t theNotice kind of a strange place for you to be?)

Kate Spade New York | Holiday 2011

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how head-over-heels I am for this collection? Because – I’m not usually a Kate Spade fan. Actually, I’m not really a clothing or accessories fan. But give me a couple ribbons, throw in some gold, and I’m as good as gone.

Kate Spade

Sometimes I feel like Kate Spade is the Deborah Lipmann of accessories – there’s no such thing as too much glitter, and it is so possible to be whimsical and chic at the same time.

(The detail on her Curling Ribbon Bow headband; how cute is that?! God, I’m such a ridiculous sucker for folded metals.)

NYFW: the look to love | Callula Lillibelle Spring 2012

Friday, September 16, 2011

If you’re going to emulate just one look this Fashion Week, let it be this one! I’m loving this low-maintenance (but high-impact) look created by José Rivera and the rest of the Sephora PRO Team for Callula Lillibelle.

Unlike a lot of the looks that grace the runway (hello, Chris Benz), this one’s totally street-ready, and I’m hoping to see more of it as Spring rolls around. (We do have to get through Autumn and Winter first, but really: that’s just semantics). The look included glowing, bronzed skin, a naturally glossy eye, and a brilliantly vibrant orange-fuchsia lip.

The Face

For a seamless, glowing base, the artists used MAKE UP FOR EVER Mist & Fix to prep the skin, layered on Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 and MUFE HD Invisible Cover Concealer for a perfect base, and set the look with a dusting of Smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

Then, to really “wake up” the models’ complexions, they added Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder under the eyes to reflect light, Laura’s Bronzer Veil around the perimeter of the face and under the cheekbones, and Lorac Blush in Peach to add a bit of colour.

(The bronzer is featured in Laura’s Bonne Mine palette, which I believe is limited edition but currently available. For a similar creme bronzer, try something like the NARS Laguna Multiple or Too Faced Aqua Bunny Bronzer.)

The Eyes

To create depth, the PRO Team used layered the deepest shade in the No. 4 MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream Palette with Birthday Suit from the Too Faced Naked Eye Palette in the crease. Then, tokidoki Prisma Lip Gloss in Donutella was applied to the lids to create a glossy eye.

The eyes were finished with Lancome Definicils Mascara and Anastasia Brow Gel in Clear.

The Lips

And finally, the star of the look! Rivera and team used shade #005, Fuchsia Pink, from the MAKE UP FOR EVER 12 Flash Color Palette to create a rich base colour. (If you don’t want to buy the whole palette, try Rouge Artist Intense in 36, a satin fuchsia, or Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in Fuschia 16C, a bright fuschia pink, instead.)

To complete the lip look, the artists mixed together two shades of Stila Long Wear Lip Color and applied them on top: Exhilarating, a bright matte fuchsia, and Outrageous, a deep matte orange. Ridiculously gorgeous, right?
