Guest Blogger: Inspired by Balmain

A style force to be reckoned with, Sara Zucker is well known for providing daily outfit inspiration and scoping out incredible finds via her Tumblr, Farpitzs (which is the Yiddish word for ‘all dressed up,’ just in case you were curious). As if being one of the most popular fashion voices in the blogosphere wasn’t time consuming enough, the well-heeled trendsetter also happens to be Glamour Magazine’s community manager. Lucky for us, she was able to make some time in her busy schedule to guest blog for us this week. Check back daily as Zucker shares everything from her favorite fall trends to what’s in her cosmetics bag.

For a beauty look that is simple to recreate and on-trend for the season, I looked toward the Balmain spring 2011 runway. The brand is known for its bad-ass leather pieces, but the models were painted in tame, ultra-wearable cosmetic colors. Hair was kept sleek and smooth in order to highlight the main event: the eyes. To create something similar to the Balmain catwalkers, use a lash conditioner to encourage eyelash growth, brush lashes with a few coats of voluminous black mascara, and add a shimmery, champagne-colored shadow.
