I’m not an eyeshadow girl. I hate how it tends to get all built up in the crease of your eyes, and before you know it, you look like a hooker doing the walk of shame. Or else you have to put on tons before it looks like anything, and all of a sudden, it’s very obviously too much and you have to give up, stay in, and buy, like, 20 cats. Lucky for me (and you, because I was going to keep going with these scenarios), there is good eyeshadow to be had. Recently, I tried Dior’s five-color palette. The packaging is a little flashy, but this stuff gets the job done. The consistency is nice, it blends easily, and the colors in each set are lovely and complementary. Though pricey, at $58 each, they do come with five colors, so if you’re looking to improve your eyeshadow situation, it might be worth the splurge. [$58, Sephora] Keep reading »
Every time I go to Sephora to get some concealer in an attempt to cover up my under-eye zombie circles, some perky salesgirl tries to convince me that I can’t possibly apply said concealer without an army of extra brushes. Ditto on everything from blush to eyeshadow and even lip gloss. Unless you’re a hardcore beauty Nazi who insists on doing everything by the book though, it’s all kind of BS. You don’t really need different brushes for blush and powder or different layers of eye shadow; that just tends to get confusing and expensive. Find out which four brushes will get you through every makeup situation, after the jump. Keep reading »

But rather than blowing money on a whole new set of colored liner, a few cosmetic companies make it really easy to turn your eyeshadow into smudge-proof liquid liner with liquid sealer. We tried one by Make Up For Ever and were immediately impressed by its awesomeness. We’ll show you how to use it after the jump. Keep reading »
So, um yeah, we love designer Alexandre Herchcovitz, but when we consider the facts, we’re disappointed that only the wealthiest of the cool kids (like model/socials Cory Kennedy and Byrdie Bell, who sat front row) can actually afford his clothes. And, while we appreciate an artist who takes risks, it’s also pretty clear to us that we won’t be saving up to buy the above ensemble anyway, n’est-ce pas? What we will be getting all up on is the pretty peach eye makeup paired with rosy pink blush that Global Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York Charlotte Willer used on the girls to give them a flushed look to go with the footballer theme. How peachy shadow makes your eye color pop, after the jump. Keep reading »
Our Catherine has beautiful eyes, but she’s never been able to master that smoke-ified look. The lovely Trae at Three Custom Color showed her how to properly apply eyeshadow and eyeliner so she doesn’t look like she got in a crazy girl fight.
