Ah London, you never disappoint! There’s just something perfectly understated about matte shadows that quietly invokes mystery while letting the fashion have the glory. Makes my soul smile! We saw mattes beautifully smoked out in taupes + browns as well as simple matte color washes in apricots + nudes. So of course I had to translate the look from Holly Fulton’s show on the lovely Emmy Rossum last night for the Global Green Oscar Party!

To make the Holly Fulton Autumn look wearable this Spring, all I had to do was add a pop of pink on the cheek and brighten the lip shade ever so slightly. Here’s what I used so you can too!

I die for this color. Burgundy is by far the biggest color for Fall and I so badly want a burgundy handbag, leather jacket, corduroy jeans, wide-brimmed hat, shoes… anything and everything! A girl can dream… but in the meantime, who knew burgundy lips could be so gorgeous too? I never thought about this mulberry shade for myself; my eyes definitely but I guess I never thought I could pull it off as a lip color. I’ve been eyeing it in magazine editorials and on the runways but figured it was too high fashion for real life…

Until I had this a-ha moment…

Um. Call me cray, but I’m completely obsessed with this color palette from the Gaultier Fall 2011 show. I can’t wait to be a little old lady with a blue haired updo… as long as it looks like THIS!

When we think of spider lashes, we think Tammy Faye Baker. Wait… do you kids even know who Tammy Faye Baker is?? This past season at Chloe, Lanvin, Valentino and Mui Mui’s Fall 2011 shows, the Sixties-influenced clumpy lashes stunned perfectly.

Here’s the trick:

  1. One coat at a time, really load up with a volumizing mascara.
  2. Dip an eyeshadow brush into your favorite face powder and powder your lashes between each coat of mascara.
  3. After your third coat, grab your tweezers and clump together a few lashes at a time in star-shaped points.
