PARTY MAKEUP INSPIRATION

TUTORIAL + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

For the girl out there that lives to express herself artistically, this one is for you! It’s fun, playful and actually wearable even though it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It looks like glitter from far way but as you can see, it’s not! We found this look floating around Instagram a few months ago, thanks for letting us know J Kissa originally created it! Here’s how you can recreate it too:

TOOLS:

  • Matte Liquid Liners– I used Lime Crime Liquid Eyeliners (white here, purple here, black here, light blue here, citreuse here, royal blue here) and Dior Addict It-Line in It-Pink here.
  • Metallic Liquid Liners — I used MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liners (18 shades here of which 16 are metallic) and Lancome Artliner 24H Bold Color Precision Eyeliners (10 metallic shades here).

STEPS:

  1. Start by picking a matte shade and dot randomly along the lashline, continuing out and up at the end like you would a cat eye.
  2. Pick another matte shade and dot randomly then continue with as many matte shades that you have.
  3. Switch to a metallic shade and speckle more dots randomly all over the “line” you created with the matte liners.
  4. Continue dotting with your metallic shades.
  5. Grab one of your matte shades (I chose purple) and perfect the wing by drawing two lines that intersect into a point.

There are so many ways you can vary this too! You can choose only three shades. You could do a gradient speckle where it starts with white dots that continue to become white and pink dots then pink and red dots then only red dots… have fun with it! And be sure to share by tagging us on social!

DRESS IT UP!

Silver is a really fun way to dress up your makeup and is much more wearable than you think. The lightness of color along with the  metallic finish draws a lot of attention to the eyes and is perfect for a night out with your girlfriends! Here’s how to achieve it and what products to pair it with: (more…)

FASHION FRIDAY: BRACELET LAYERING

We’ve all seen the streams of photos on pinterest & instragram of girls showing off their epic bracelet layerings and what can we say? It truly is an art form! Below is a handy dandy guide from our lovely Jaclyn Johnson from Some Notes On Napkins on how to create a super fun arm party of your own! There are a few key components to getting a complimentary combo of metal, color + swagger on your wrist: (more…)

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.
