  • 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!

    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.

  • Get Selena Gomez's 'Star Dance' Promo Pic Look!

    Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber broke up earlier this year, and it's definitely been all about Selena ever since then! From being the December 2012 Glamour Cover Girl, to coming out with her new hit single "Come and Get It," to even having a nail polish collaboration with Nicole by OPI, there's no stopping this girl! So, it's no surprise that she of course has perfect style, too.

    The most recent look we're obsessing over is her makeup in her latest promo pic for her upcoming album, Star Dance. Her dramatic eye makeup is just so stunning! Want to rock the look yourself? No worries - we have you covered! The bold, black look is so sexy, while the lush lashes give it a touch of sultry - perfect for a night out with friends.

    To get those voluminous lashes, try out Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara. This mascara is so perfect because it does more than just volumize; it also lengthens and curls, all while protecting those lashes with a triple peptide complex! For a super dramatic look like Selena's, just simply apply extra coats.

    Finish off the look with your favorite black smokey eye shadow, and add in black eyeliner over your lash line and waterline. Whether your eyes are brown like Selena's or not, this is one look that looks perfect with all eye colors. So, have fun giving the look a go...maybe even while playing "Come and Get It" in the background for some extra inspiration!

  • 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!

  • Fall 2012 Trends – Back to School Beauty

    Geometry 101 – Eyeliner Styles

    Geometric shaping around the eyes will be all the rage this Fall, says Elle magazine.  Get creative with your eyeliner and try out something more risqué like long wings at the corners, thick lines, and dots.  Adding something more to your basic eyeliner and shadow will bring a new shape and feeling to your entire look.  Also in style for the season are bold, full colors along the eyelid.  Mixing in some bold eye shadow colors to your pallet can additionally bring more attention to your beautiful eyes!

    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.

    Biology Class – Boxy Bangs

    Everyone will be adding prim and proper bangs to their hairstyle this Fall 2012 season.  Straight, boxy, full bangs can completely change your style.  Bangs bring an edgy look and can be a super stylish addition to hairstyles this Fall.  All year at Fall 2012 runway fashion shows and previews, the boxy bang has been dominant for models wearing the latest trends.  There are so many different styles of bangs so you’re bound to find a style that suits you.  If you’re not sure what will look good with your face shape just ask your hairstylist for a suggestion.

    Drama Club – Red Lips

    Makeup trends seem to be all about the shock factor this Fall.  If you’re looking to liven up your makeup style, pick up a luscious stick of red lipstick on your next shopping trip.  Deep and bright red lips are totally Vintage, fitting in with the Hairstyles this Fall, and add another burst of color to compliment your geometric eyeliner techniques.  Red is the ideal color for Fall, fitting in well with the season change.  The great thing about red lips, they’re classic and will go with anything you wear!
