Would You Wear Gloss on Your Eyelids?

I was in fourth grade when I first read about the phenomenon of putting Vaseline on your eyelids in an issue of Seventeen. It seemed like a very brave and grownup notion at the time, and certainly something that would never fly in front of my classmates (whose beauty experimentation stopped at flavored Lip Smackers). Ever since then, I’ve tossed the idea around whenever I grow bored of my everyday matte shadow. And if the Fall 2013 shows are any indication, now may be the best time to finally experiment with the shiny eye look. The coolest part? In lieu of petroleum jelly, you can use almost any translucent lip gloss (and probably even that half-used tube of balm lying around in your purse).

Major Fall Makeup Trend: Intoxicating Orange Eyes

Now that it’s October, fall is officially in full swing and that means trying out some new trends. One that I am particularly excited about this season is orange eyes, seen on the runways at Rodarte, Armani Prive, and Donna Karan. My take on the look will involve stila’s Mimosa shadow, a hue that’s bright in a distinctly autumn kind of way. I’d pair the shade with a neutral lip and very little other makeup (perhaps a touch of bronzer for some warmth) to ensure that my eyes were the main focus. Given that Halloween is just around the corner (can you believe it!?!), this is an easy way to experiment with pumpkin-y color.
