Lash Out

I wish I was one of those people who can create make up tutorials that women would go gaga over, but unfortunately I am the one who keeps strolling the internet to find some tips. I know not everyone is born equally lucky when it comes to perfect skin, almond eyes, fleshy lips, a retrousse …

Pumped Up Lips

The only thing regarding make-up that people have come over and asked for my counsel in history is the brand and colors of my lipsticks. Since I have low eyelids I can not use eye shadow, I never have. So my make up is either just eyeliner or eyeliner with a red lipstick. My first …

Meoowww

I can’t tell you how glad I am that the only make up technique I know (and can apply on myself) is now the biggest beauty trend of the season: the cat eye. To your surprise, it’s not as hard as the common opinion, especially with gel eyeliners or thick brushes. But since I have …

Red Hot Tomato

I don’t know if you’d believe me when I say that the last time I put on red nail polish was approximately 5 years ago (excluding  burgundy). My eternal riot against obvious sexiness has led me to abandon any kind of traditional beauty routine: red nails, long or perfectly coiffed hair, 700 layers of foundation …

All That Glitter

Personally, my gold make up rave started with Fendi’s gold foil eye “installation” for the runway of spring/summer 2012 collection. It just looked so perfectly whimsical that I felt like I should just glue gold foils all over my face. Then gold foil nail stickers popped out of nowhere and occupied all pinterest boards, tumblr …

The White Line

I’m sure the fellow F.R.I.E.N.D.S ers will remember the scene where Ross and Monica goes to their childhood home and Ross finds his old “clown-kit” which his dad refers to as the “make up kit” because the white seems to be untouched. What we can take from this short script is that Friends is one …

Maroon Strikes Back

I guess it’s not a surprise to see a make up trend dominating two consecutive years, considering the options are scarce compared to other fields of fashion and beauty. Sure the brow shapes are changing, we have several double letter foundation-cream thingies (between which I still don’t get the difference) and sometimes there is a …

Party On My Eyes

While the rest of the world is talking about Alexa Chung’s new cat eye tutorial, I would like to invite you to the opposite end of the minimal universe and consider a metallic – or holographic, if you may – party on your eyes, assuming you would embrace it given it’s the party season. I’ve …

Français Renversé

Confessions of a nail art virgin: I only tried french manicure 2 times in my life. One was for high school prom, second was for my wedding. That kind of neaty neat look is not for me, I’m a black in the winter – pastel in the summer kind of girl. And having teeny tiny …

Spring On My Eyes

On your eyes actually, since I can not use eye shadow – and even if I did I would probably look a step more than washed out with pastel eyes, but I totally, totally encourage you to try this look for this spring. From Burberry to Prabal Gurung, Antonio Marras to Prada, Giorgio Armani to …
