Hi Friends! So I’m thinking about changing the way I format my blog and hopefully this not only works better for me but easier for you to read and follow. I’m going to be blogging twice a week, once for the weekday (Monday to Thursday) and then again for the weekend (Friday to Sunday). I’m […]
Tory Burch The Look: Rosy Cheeks and Lips How-To: The pretty, fresh makeup at Tory Burch was inspired by a photo of Picasso and his muse, Francois Gilot, walking along the beach. “Tory loved how natural and effortless Francois looked,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal, who brushed up and filled in the brows, swept a […]
Vera Wang The Look: Rocker Hair How-To: At first glance, the hair at Vera Wang looked loose and wavy and a little messy—nice, fine, been-there. Then, the models turned their heads slightly and two thin braids, one on either side, peeked through, and suddenly the whole look was so much cooler. “They’re almost dreadlocks—they break […]
Suno The Look: Herringbone Braids How-To: Backstage at Suno, hairstylist Odile Gilbert played with the idea of contrasting textures, pairing wet, slicked-back hair at the top of the head with a big, deconstructed fishtail braid. She combed gel from the roots to the back of the crown and clipped the hair in place, then divided […]
Tommy Hilfiger The Look: Star Tattoos How-To: If you hear Tommy Hilfiger and think preppy, nautical, and all-American, it’s time to reconsider.

Ralph Lauren The Look: Golden Eyes How-To: It was a shiny, sparkly affair at the Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 show, where models walked the runway decked out in opulent diamonds. “We had to add shimmer to the eyes to balance the face with the jewelry,” explained makeup artist Tom Pecheux, who applied shimmery gold shadow […]
I took the look from Reed Krakoff’s Cobalt nails and did my own this week. Love the color! Blues bring a cool and confident feeling and with these nails I def talked with my hands a lot more.
Tanya Taylor The Look: Bright Orange Lips How-To: Makeup artist Uzo described the bold orange lips at Tanya Taylor as “crisp and unexpected.” She filled them in with a fiery orangey-red lip pencil, then went over that with a brighter orange in a demi-matte finish for a more dimensional, opaque look.
Oscar de la Renta The Look: Sleek Ponytails and Thick Black Eyeliner How-To: “Oscar always just wants women to look rich and beautiful,” said hairstylist Orlando Pita, who created the supersleek, Barbie-like ponytails. His tip for achieving high shine without a hint of greasiness? Use hairspray instead of gel. “If you spray hairspray before and […]
Wes Gordon The Look: Sleek Ponytails with Hardware How-To: Hairstylist James Pecis prepped the hair with thickening mousse before straightening it, pulling it into a tight, controlled ponytail, and securing it with a silver cuff. The result was a sleek, smooth style that still felt voluminous.
