Even though it’s technically still summer, we’re getting ready to transition our makeup routine into fall. Luckily, we convinced stila's celebrity makeup artist and Fashion Week superstar, Sarah Lucero, to show us a matte eyeshadow look to wear throughout the season. Don't be intimidated by the orange shade, it's surprisingly flattering and more wearable than you would think.
You’ve probably heard by now that we’re teaming up with Glamour for our July Birchbox. To help celebrate this awesome partnership, the gracious Girls in the Beauty Department will be sharing their beauty expertise with us for an entire month. Lucky us!
I’m on the hunt for an ah-mazing bachelorette gift for my soon-to-be sister-in-law, and since she loves makeup—and I know makeup—it’s definitely what I’ll be getting for her. She’s beyond obsessed with eyeshadow, so an expansive palette makes the most sense, yes?
This week’s guest blogger, the lovely Alissa Kelly, offers up fun fashion and beauty advice on her blog, Feeling Good. (Our favorite feature? Kelly’s fun nail posts!) We love her optimistic attitude and useful tips. Today, she’s showing us how to effortlessly pull off bold shadow.
This year, I made a promise to myself: I would use more color in my makeup routine. I’ve been stuck in the neutral eye shadow phase for a long time because bold eye shadow can be intimidating.
Maybe you’re thinking the same thing. Don’t worry—I’m here to help you (and me). The first thing to remember is to have fun with it! Step out of your comfort zone and try something new. But also keep in mind: You’re not performing on stage, so makeup doesn’t need to be super bold.
Freelance makeup artist Jennifer Duvall has kept us entranced with her blog jennysuemakeup.com for months. The Georgia blogger is the ultimate multi-tasker as both a makeup guru and a mommy of three! We love her great how-to advice and awesome product reviews, which is why we’re so excited that this week, she’s graciously sharing her style secrets with us.
When it comes to finding the perfect and least intimidating eye shadow color for every skin tone, the overwhelming answer would have to be my best friend: brown.
Let’s face it, it’s a lot easier to pull off a brown shadow than a lime green shade, but that doesn’t mean that brown has to be boring.
I know telling you to pick out a brown hue is like asking you to pick out a great neutral khaki color from an endless Sherwin-Williams paint fan. It’s difficult to make heads or tails of all the options out there, and choosing the perfect shade can get overwhelming.
To help out with any confusion, there are certain undertones in a brown liner or shadow that complement every eye color.
Our obsession with orange and pink continues! Today I’m inspired by this home decor image that I came across on Pinterest. Instead of updating my apartment, I’ll be pairing a bright orange shadow with a pop of pink on my lips. It’s a less expensive and time consuming way to rock this color combo and I like wearing exuberant shades to lighten up dreary fall days.
