NYFW Runway vs. My Way: Wearable Retro ’60s Makeup

nanette lepore spring/summer 2015 retro '60s makeup

Pair retro ’60s with a laid back California coastal vibe and you get the covetable makeup look seen at Nanette Lepore’s Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show. This fresh-faced yet fashion forward look is a little over-the-top for day but with a few subtle tweaks, I think I made it suitable enough for everyday. Here’s how I got the look:

While I decided to opt out of hitting up New York Fashion Week this season, I’m still following each and every show. Well, as many as I can possibly keep up with, anyway. And, in lieu of bringing you beauty tips collected after elbowing my way backstage during all of the chaos, I’ll be showing off looks I’ve recreated based on the makeup and hairstyles created by the high fashion beauty geniuses.

First up: orange(ish) lips. Makeup artist Talia Shobrook created a bold and stunning makeup look for the Athleta show. Continue reading

Orange is the New … Orange.

Taylor Schilling Variety Women in Film Pre-Emmy PartyWhile I should be posting about last night’s VMA awards, my friend and insanely talented makeup artist Tina Turnbow used a lip color on Saturday that I couldn’t not talk about. Actress Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black) attended the Variety, Women in Film Pre-Emmy Party and Turnbow helped her pair her all black shorts tuxedo ensemble and super casual hair with a pop of orange lip color — it was Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Heftiest Hibiscus, $17. Love. Can’t wait to see what she does for Emmys night.

Reader Rave: It Cosmetics Brow Power & Vitality Lip Flush

It Cosmetics Brow Power and Lip Vitality FlushOur second installment of reader raves (see the facial scrub that was yesterday’s fave) is for two It Cosmetics products. The It Cosmetics Brow Power, $24 and  It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush, $20. Here’s why …

“My two favorite products right now are both from the It Cometics brand. The Brow Power pencil creates a fuller-looking brow without appearing fake and painted on. And the other product is a lip conditioner called Vitality Lip Flush. It is a pale pink, which gives me a very natural-looking lip for those of us who have lost all color in our lips due to age. Awesome products!” — Jan
