Makeup-less Models Walk For Marc Jacobs! ( and all pink everything)

12 Sep

Where oh where do I begin with the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer ’15 show? It was by far the most creative show at New York Fashion Week. Beats by Dre headphones were provided for every guest to listen to a summery soundtrack(birdsongs, violins, dogs barking, kids playing) as the models cascaded down the runway. The runway was covered in pink carpet and it wrapped around a pink house no less. Think  Barbie pink suburbia! The collection had a heavy military esthetic which totally offset all the pink perfectly, and did I mention some of the dresses had oversized FUNCTIONAL pockets? AKA attached purse on hip!!! Love it!mj16 Does it get better? YES!!!! The kicker of the whole show was that each and every model wore NO MAKEUP!!!! You read that right- The Nars makeup team used moisturizer on the models and nothing more. I think that’s pretty darn cool.

Nude Lips! (under $5)

30 Jun

I love a good nude lip color. I also love a great deal as most of you know! Today I’m sharing my 2 go-to nude lip pies, one is a gloss and one is a lip balm- BOTH are less than $5!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss.

This peach scented and slightly shimmery lip balm is perfect for everyday. Has the feel of chapstick with a nude/ peachy tint. Very hydrating as well!

NYX Butter gloss in Creme Brulee.

This silky smooth butter lip gloss lives up to its name! It glides on like butter and actually stays put! It is also no secret that this lip gloss is a dupe for many high-end lippies including NARS and Lorac.

NARS to Launch Andy Warhol Collection (sneak peek)

25 Aug

This Holiday season Nars will launch a highly anticipated Andy Warhol collection.  The makeup is not only inspired by Warhol but will include his prints and photographs on the packaging as well.  The collection will consist of two different stories so to speak, the first named “pop art ” will pay homage to the funky bright pop art that the eccentric artist is known for and the second collection named “the factory” will aim for the more glamorous, sophisticated feel of Warhol’s New York City workspace that was a hot spot for the artsy crowd and famed for its star studded parties. The collection has no shortage of palettes and will include blush, lip gloss, nail color and more. The Sephora exclusive pop art line is set to launch October 1st at U.S. Sephora stores while the factory is set to launch at department and specialty stores worldwide November 1st.
