Geometric Eyeliner

  • Makeup Monday: Cat Eye Makeup Puurrfection!

    The "cat-eye" or winged eyeliner trend is one that seems to come and go, but for Spring/Summer 2014, it is a trend that is staying with us on the long beach days way into the warm summer evenings. From the runways to the streets, girls everywhere are busting out the bold black eyeliner and lining their lids with wide winged cat-eyes for a feminine, yet seductive makeup look.

    This is a look that many girls struggle to create, but it's easier than you think! You can create this look using a liquid or pencil liner, but for a beginner we find that pencils are easier to work with. However, a liquid will give you better results as long as it is done correctly. And, a little hint from the experts: most makeup artists say to use a cotton swab dipped in some makeup remover to perfect the winged tip on the edge of the eyelid. For a no fail solution, we love Tarte's brand new easy to use "Light, Camera, Lashes" Precision Longwear Liner. It is so easy to use and will have you looking like a star in seconds for about $20!

    History Lesson – Fall Hairstyles

    Daniel at Fashioning says that this season, hairstyles are getting Vintage.  The 1960s ponytail, side braid,  and classic wavy bob from the 40s are taking over.  These hair trends are bringing us back in time and making it a little easier to style our hair each morning.  This Vintage mix is really about comfort and staying casual.  Any straight hair will look fab in a long, low ponytail, while those with curly locks are in luck too with manageable braids or a bob look.
