You can translate this huge Fall trend in a small way, or really go for it! You can play with different formulas too… burgundy lipstick, lip gloss, stains, matte balms or liners paired with gold powder eye shadow, cream shadow or gold metallic lipstick. Makeup is supposed to be fun and a creative outlet, so choose by your mood that day or what you have in your makeup drawer! Here’s how we did it: (more…)

SHADOW FOCUS: EYE COLOR

Now you can see why brown eyes are my favorite to work on as a makeup artist! Everything looks gorgeous on them! This is because brown is a neutral color and doesn’t compete with other colors the way that blue + green eyes do. Some brown eyes have yellow or gold center highlights, some have shades of hazel while others are so deep dark brown they have a world of mystery behind them! So basically depending on your style and mood that day, you have no limits.

Our Kitchen Beautician Series is back with a fun + easy way to make your own shade of lipstick! If you have lipsticks that you’ve grown tired of or bought online but wish were a little softer/brighter when they arrived… or others that are a little too matte that you know would pop more with a bit of shimmer or a metallic finish, here’s how to take matters into your own hands! But please remember to always be careful when using your stovetop and you MUST have parental supervision if you are under 18!

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.
