  • This Halloween Makeup Tutorial Will Have You Doing A Double Take

    With August officially here, it's safe to say that Summer 2016 is going by way too fast. While it will be sad to see the days of sand and sun disappear, we couldn't be more excited for Homecoming 2016. And, with Homecoming comes Halloween!

    While there's still plenty of time to put your Halloween costume together (hint, hint: it is time to start looking for that Homecoming dress, though!), we recently stumbled upon a Halloween makeup tutorial video by Promise Tamang, known as dope2111 on YouTube, that we're loving.

    First, a little background on social media star Promise. She is an incredible makeup artist, with over 4.2 million subscribers on YouTube and over 900,000 fans on both Facebook and Instagram, that does all sorts of beauty transformations. From celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Miley Cyrus to Barbie and Disney characters like Snow White, she can transform herself into just about any person or character. The best part is that she doesn't just show the transformation - she gives you the the step-by-step instructions so that you can transform, as well!

    Promise's video that's making us do double-takes is perfect for anyone that wants a totally unique, artistic Halloween costume idea. It's also perfect for any gal that just loves her makeup, because this look is giving you even more of it! No, we don't mean the 100 layers of foundation challenge.  Continue reading

  • DIY Black Cat Makeup Tutorial for Halloween!

    Remember on Monday how we posted about a chic black cat Halloween look, matching chick nail art, a little black dress, cat ears, cat eye makeup, and cat eye glasses all together? Well, we have more information to help you finish off that black cat look! Seventeen Magazine recently posted a step-by-step video on how to create that perfect black cat makeup look...from the classic cat eyes to a cute black nose and even whiskers! Check out the black cat makeup tutorial here:

    http://youtu.be/9KQxaANch48

    Such a cute look! Lupe, known as naturallybellexo on YouTube (who works with Seventeen), decided to create her black cat look with a black romper, rather than a little black dress, like we mentioned earlier this week. Both styles work so well for a black cat look, and both are so easy to take from Halloween to any other night out or event you go to.

    If you want to rock a romper like Lupe, we love Shail K style 3464. This hand beaded, sparkling one piece will make you look so sexy, and the silver accenting throughout the romper reminds us of stripes on a cat! We especially love the sparkles on this romper - they're a perfect way to stand out in the crowd on nights like Halloween, a Holiday party, or New Year's Eve. The romper also features a sweetheart neckline, defined waist, and unique open back design. If it's a cold night out (like Halloween or the Holidays usually are), don't be afraid to pair this look with black tights - rompers look great with tights and is perfectly on-trend.

    Shail K 3464

    A black cat is a classic (and SO Roo Girl!) choice for Halloween, so you definitely can't go wrong with this look. And, you can always find unique ways to add your own personal style to the look by adding jewelry.... and choosing between a romper vs. a LBD, of course! Are you planning on being a black cat? Do you have any tips, tricks, or ideas on how to finish off the look? Leave a comment below!

  • 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends!

    The beauty trends for Haute Couture Fashion week are anything but average. In fact, the typical adjectives used to capture the art displayed by various designers and artists include wild, eclectic, and whimsical. However non-realistic and daring these hair and makeup looks may be, they always seem to have an underlying layer of prettiness drawing us to them and tempting us to give them a try on our own mini runways in everyday life. Here are a few of the 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week beauty trends we enjoyed the most and would be willing to try for Fall and Homecoming 2014.

    Chanel Haute Couture 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends-Chanel Haute CoutureEach model rocked a sequin cap with a feathered, extremely piece-y up-do. We love this rocker goes glam inspired look complete with metallic winged eyeliner. The silver and gold glow on the eyes reminds of Winter and the holidays!

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014-Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsMove over barely there eye makeup. It looks like Atelier Versace went all out with an all over eye color and gave new meaning to winged eyes. Instead of a winged tip, these models had fully winged eyelids in teal for a sultry dramatic effect, which was balanced with nude lips and high slick backed top knots! This look has 70's disco party all over it and we are ready to put on a jumper and dance.

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture 2014

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture- 2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsThe models for this show walked in an ethereal water wonderland with violet shadowed, sunken eyes, also lined in metallic silvers giving an icy winter presence. The tight pin curls on the models have a wet look, which ties in with the entire Haute Couture collection being inspired by water. We can certainly get "aboard" with this look for the Fall and Winter months ahead.

    Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty Trends-Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014We thought adhesive eyelashes were a miracle, but we didn't know what was coming next. Makeup artists for the Christian Dior Haute Couture show kept the trending curve going with metallic eyes, only with the exception of using silver adhesive liners instead. We would give these "Velvet Eyes" adhesive liners a go for their perfect shapes, bold colors, and long wear appeal.

    After reviewing our favorite beauty trends of 2014's Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, we feel less disappointed knowing Summer will eventually come to an end. Knowing we will have exciting makeup, hair, and fashion trends to look forward to certainly puts our minds at ease!

    Which of the above trends did you like or dislike? Are there any you would be willing to try for the 2014 Fall and Homecoming season?

  • 5 Tips to Make Your Lipstick Last in the Fall & Winter!

    A new season means new lipstick colors! This fall, the lipstick shade we are obsessing over is plum. According to Cosmopolitan, plum lipstick is the number one sexiest piece of fall make-up.

    1490-shay-mitchell-s-funky-fall-look-0x375-2"Spiked with a dash of burgundy and a hit of black, plum lipstick becomes, 'sophisticated in a twisted kind of way,'" says makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

    Date-Makeup-Idea-Dark-Plum-Lips-0-megan-foxWe couldn't agree more with Tom! We are definitely taking advantage of the fall weather and squeezing in all the different shades of plum lipstick that we can get our hands on! But, with winter right around the corner, don't worry because this is a shade that can be worn right through the cold weather, too.

    The only thing we can't help but hate is when our lipstick wares off! Having to re-apply lipstick many times throughout the day is exhausting and wastes the product; which is why we want to share 5 tips to make your lipstick last, an article based off of Seventeen Magazine. With winter officially just around the corner and chapped lips on their way, these tips couldn't be more important.

    a-lips-getty-creative1. Exfoliate. Scrub your lips with the rest of your face while you're in the shower in the morning. A gentle exfoliator will smooth over the flakes that come with winter's chapped lips.

    2. Moisturize. With the temperatures dropping faster than you can say "pumpkin spice latté," moisturizing everything, including your lips is key. Stock up on a long-lasting chapstick to keep your pucker from getting chapped and use it before applying lipstick to help it go on smoothly.

    3. Prime & Line. Use an easy-to-apply lip primer to set the stage for the bold color. Once it's absorbed, outline you lips in a liner that's the same shade of your natural lip color.

    4. Add Your Color. Apply the lipstick of choice in two swipes.  Blot a couple times on a tissue and repeat with another swipe of lipstick, followed by another blot. Do this until you score your desired color strength.

    5. Set with Powder. You heard us, powder—on your lips. A light, translucent powder will help keep the color in place even after you enjoy a huge mug of hot chocolate!

    Once you follow these short steps, you will be ready to rock your plum lipstick (or any other color lipstick) all day long!

  • Catch Fire with Precious Formals & CoverGirl!

    We are so excited for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere on November 22nd, that not only are we re-reading the novel, we're also finding ways to celebrate the release! Two of our favorite names in the fashion world, CoverGirl and Precious Formals, have been all about the Hunger Games. CoverGirl recently released a new makeup collection, called the Capitol Collection, in honor of the second Hunger Games movie. They've created signature looks for each of Panem's 12 Districts, from Luxury to Mining (and everything in between). Best yet, dress designer Precious Formals loved this idea so much that they recently showed how you can perfectly pair CoverGirl's district inspired makeups with their dresses for a complete look. Read on and pick a district to represent at your Prom or during the Holidays!

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 1 Makeup

    This makeup was created by CoverGirl for District 1. Precious Formals recommends pairing the makeup with Style L46736, a mermaid evening gown that has shimmery golden lining that peaks through the gaps of the gown's lace-and-sequins overlay.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 2 makeup

    The makeup in the above picture was created by CoverGirl for District 2. Precious Formals style L9034 is the perfect dress choice for this district's representation of Masonry. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline, and sheer long sleeves of this chic and flirty dress.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 3 Makeup

    District 3 represents Technology, and CoverGirl's District 3 makeup and Precious Formals style P46728 are the perfect pair for this district. Multi-hued sequins create intricate Aztec tribal prints throughout this trendy short dress, with the exception of the neckline's small gemstone embellishments.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 4 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 4. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P21017, an elegant gown that emits a holographic shimmer and features diamond-adorned halter straps that criss-cross in the back. It's definitely as shiny as a fish!

    CoverGirl Hunger games District 5 makeup

    The above makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 5, which represents Power. Radiate beautifully in Precious Formals C10559, a strapless sweetheart mermaid gown encrusted with sequins and shiny stones that comes in a neon yellow and purple.

    CoverGirl HungerGames District 6 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 6, Transportation. Precious Formals says to pair it with Style W21046, a simple A-line silhouette accented by holographic sequins and purple gemstones.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 7 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 7 makeup can be perfectly paired with Precious Formals P46712A for a pretty green and yellow colored look that represents Lumber. It's a gorgeous dress that has asymmetrical waist cutouts and a single sheer sleeve in Ombre chiffon. It definitely gives this A-Line a very tropical appeal!

    Hunger Games District 8 CoverGirl makeup

    This makeup created by CoverGirl for District 8 can be paired with Precious Formals style L9005 to show off the beautiful colors associated with textiles. A thigh-high slit, scoop back and elongated front keyhole cutout spice up this shimmery high-necked gown.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 9 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 9 makeup is simple and natural, with just the right amount of shine. And, that's exactly why Precious Formals style P46772 is the perfect match! The dress' soft gold color stands out in a beautifully elegant way.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 10 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 10, which represents Livestock. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P10561, a stunning mermaid gown with a corset sheer bodice and sweetheart neckline.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 11 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 11 makeup would look beautiful with Precious Formals P9060 to represent Agriculture. Sequins cover this plunging-halter gown until just below the hipline, where the sequined pattern spreads out to reveal a sheer floor-length skirt.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 12 makeup

    Lastly, District 12 is where the protagonist of The Hunger Games, Katniss, is from, and the dark colors with just the right hint of yellow/gold used in CoverGirl's District 12 makeup and Precious Formals style P9037 are a perfect representation of it. The sheer-paneled slits cut diagonally across the bodice and straight down one side of this sexy slitted gown makes Style P9037 particularly unique and reminds us of Katniss' braid!

  • DIY Vampire Makeup Tutorial for Halloween!

    Halloween is almost here, and we've been in full swing of matching our pretty dresses with accessories for a classy (and classic) Halloween look. Just a few days ago, we showed you how you can so easily create a sexy witch or vampire look with a little black dress. Today, we're here to show you how to finish off that look with makeup! Roo Girl Stephanie went to work to show you how you can easily create a perfect sultry look with makeup...it's all about that deep, dark eyeshadow! Check out her video below. All you'll need to do is add the fangs!

    http://youtu.be/gJp2AOcYXRg

    Even though LBDs are an easy and affordable way to get the perfect vampire dress, designers lately have been all about lace and darker colors for Fall 2103. So, it's made for so many great dresses that are so perfect to be used for a vamp costume, and Stephanie shows off one of our favorites at the end of the video: Sherri Hill style 21156. The combination of the fitted corset-like bodice, elegant black jewels, black lace, and deep red color on this dress screams to be paired with fangs and just the right amount of blood for a super classy and sexy vamp look! It also comes in a black color that's great for being a vampire, too.

We know it can be scary to change a style you've become so accustomed to, which is why we're totally in love with Seventeen Magazine's Virtual Makeover Tool!

    Seventeen's Virtual Makeover Tool

    Virtual Makeover Celebrity Instant Makeup Looks

  • Fall 2012 Makeup Trends

    Even though December is here, it's still pretty warm out on the East Coast and Winter doesn't officially set in until the end of the month. So, we're making sure to enjoy all parts of Fall before all of the leaves are gone!

    We've been especially keeping our love of Fall going by breaking out our favorite makeup looks of the season here at the store! Allure Magazine is always a great place to get beauty inspiration, and we've taken a hint from them for our favorite Fall makeup looks. They picked their top Fall makeup trends earlier this season, and we chose our favorite 4 out of the bunch that we've been rocking here at Rissy Roo's!

    Red lipstick is always "in," but lately the popular look is to take that classic red color and go a shade deeper. You can rock the look by just wearing a dark red shade, or be bold with a burgundy or plum color. There's some shades that even border on being black! Kristen Stewart looked stunning wearing a dark red lip color on the October 2012 issue of Vogue UK. It's a very romantic look, but just make sure to pair it with some blush or bronzer to keep from looking like Bella when she's a vampire in Breaking Dawn 2!

    Smoky eyes have been a popular trend for a few years now, but this look has always been synonymous with black. Now it's time for black to take a back seat and let brown be the go-to color when rocking the trendy smoky eye look. Black smoky eyes originally became popular because of how bold they are; but, smoky eyes can still be impactful, even without the bold black. Go for softer shades like brown and taupe for a more natural take on the fashionable trend.

    While the classic smoky eyes took a softer turn this season, the classic cat eye got a make-over with a more bold, statement look. You can be the coolest cat in town by adding in longer swoops and larger shapes to your outline for a more dramatic look.

    Whether or not you'll be outside camping all through the Fall or hitting the ski slopes all Winter, having rosy cheeks that make you look like an outdoors maven is always sexy! We especially love Gwyneth Paltrow's healthy looking cheeks paired with deep red lipstick in the above photo - two trends in one!
