Glitter. It's got a bad rap that it doesn't deserve. You can wear glitter all day errrrrrrryday and it can look sophisticated, chic, even subtle.
Check out these 4 spring trends I'm loving -- using just 2 products -- all on 1 face. Wear 'em together, wear 'em apart but wear EM (Cosmetics) this season!
What better way to test a brand I discovered in Madrid, that is rooted in Milan, than in Brooklyn, on my forever intern Jess who is a perfect mix of Chinese and Filipino. Can you say, international glamour??
Channeling beauty icons with some strips and some glue, it's a tough job but someone's gotta do it. [AKA we tested Sheena Sujun's false lashes collection and LOVED it.]
After perusing and ooh and aahing over all the amazing moments we snapped and recorded, I now present 11 [Beauty] Things We Saw and Liked at NYFW FW15.
When the shoot, the event, the day, the night, the thing is over... if you care about your skin, you need to care about what you use to remove all the layers you put on it.
Nothing I love more than a DIVAlicious makeover. Here I show Trish how to wear (read: own!) hot pink makeup, despite her fear of clownlike color. But only after, of course, finding her perfect skin match foundation to use for contour and highlight.
Why should select NYC blogger babes be the only ones in the know about My 2014 Holiday Faves??! Of course I'm also sharing them with you.
DISCLAIMER. This is a sparkly eye look. But think, like, carefree hippie in a beautiful field tossing glitter in the air and watching it catch the light. That kind of shimmer.
I was recently interviewed by Cosmopolitan for their new Fun Fearless Life platform. Having absolutely no control over how my words would be used or how my photos would be taken, you could say the experience was, quite fittingly, a bit of a study in fearlessness for me. (Eeeek!) Well, divas, divos, contributors, members, readers, friends and mom -- it's live and here it is!!
Say goodbye to neutrality. There's a new intern in town, and what better way to welcome Kelsey Leiter to the DIVAlicious fam than to color-bomb her?!
My friend Brenda loves her some retro bombshell, so I knew she'd be up for letting me create a 60s-inspired sexpot beauty look on her. The result: total smokeshow. Total.
In the midst of NYFW madness, I was able to meet and interview James Vincent for Mehron as he prepped for the ELLE x Kohl's SS15 Runway Collection show. We discussed the look for the show as well as Vincent's suggestions for recreating it -- not to mimic the runway -- but rather in a way that is more wearable and accessible for the everyday girl.
QUESTION: Would you let me stop you on the street and give you a new makeup look?!? Well, these four girls did in my latest Cosmopolitan x COVERGIRL ambush makeover video series!!
Yesterday was National Lipstick Day and on my instagram I posted my current obsessions. From Lancome to NYX to MAKE to Avon to Maybelline to Revlon to MAC to Shiseido to Pink Holiday to Victoria's Secret to BeautiControl to Rouge Bunny Rouge to Make Up For Ever, it was quite the lineup...
Before you lay down that colored cat-eye or sultry smoky eye... before you strategically conceal your I've-been-up-all-night-and-it-shows undereye area... before you rock that orange or purple lip trend...... before any and all of it, heed this advice, divas: PREP BEFORE YOU PAINT.
If you've ever struggled to put fake lashes on yourself (aka if you're alive and have ever tried), struggle no more. Because [drumroll....] THIS. THING. IS. GENIUS.
We are LOVING a pop of pastel-meets-punk color on the lashline this season and did a fun two-way on Miss Kate!
