A METALLIC EYE

We love simple + quick ways to turn up the wow factor, and switching to a metallic shadow does just that in an instant. In our latest exclusive video tutorial we’ll show you just how easy it is to recreate this very chic look from many-a-runway.

1. After evening out your skin tone with foundation, fill in your brows with light quick strokes mimicking individual hairs. True used Dior Brow Styler in Universal Brown, our favorite because of its super-fine point.

2. With your finger, swirl a longwear shimmer shadow on the center of your lid, where you really want the pop. True used Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eye Shadow in Pulp Fiction.

3. Dab an eyeshadow brush in a metallic shadow and tap off any excess on the back of your hand. True used a discontinued favorite palette of mine from Stila (sorry!!) but try Stila Jewel Eye Shadow Trio as it’s almost identical and actually better refined. Sweep the color on the remaining areas of your lid, crease + bottom lashline.

4. With a light shimmer shadow, fill in the inner corner, above the crease + along the brow bone.

5. Rim the upper and bottom lashlines with a black longwear liner. True used NARS Soft Touch Pencil in Aigle Noir.

6. Coat the lashes with a volumizing mascara (Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara).

7. Swirl a peachy gold shimmer blush on the apples of your cheeks. True used my favorite Kabuki Blush Brush, the NARS Yachiyo (once you try it, you’ll never go back to your old blush brush) and  NARS Blush in Luster, one of my mainstays on the red carpet for years now.

8. Finish with a metallic peach lipstick. True used Dolce & Gabbana Shine Lipstick in #53 Delicate.

NAILED IT!

Fall is officially here! So I thought it would be fun to share my five favorite nail polish shades for this upcoming season.  So here they are (in no particular order)…

Dark Red – You can’t go wrong with a classic red nail.  Try going for a darker hue this Fall.

Nude – For Spring and Summer I wore nudes with a pink base, but for Fall I am opting for nudes with a grey hue.

Metallics – Silver, rose gold, glitter… I love them all! Metallic polishes are a fun way to dress up any manicure.

Army Green – Be all you can be… With a military-inspired manicure.

Mauve – I couldn’t be more in love with this color.  So romanic, but still modern.
