5 Wearable Eye Looks From The Spring 2013 Runway (And How To Get Them!)

The fashion world operates on an entirely different calendar than the rest of the world. Fashion is always one season ahead — for example, as we’re entering spring of 2013, the industry has just observed autumn 2013 — so when the season actually rolls around, we have to go back in Fashion Time and sync…

Vivienne Westwood Turns Her Models Into Cartoon Girls

Legendary punk designer Vivienne Westwood has a flair for the colorful, the dramatic, the outlandish, the shocking, the absurd… but certainly not the tame. Nor the shy, for that matter: everything Vivienne touches, from her flaming orange hair to her punk-infused collections, is intended to Make A Statement. It’s kind of her MO. For her…

Models Get Crystallized At Christian Dior Couture

This just in: runway beauty be cray, especially when it comes to couture week. Raf Simons’s lovely cream-colored gowns and floral frocks at Christian Dior were offset by some serious bedazzling of the mouth. I’d usually gamble that this is the kind of look that won’t see life off the runway come spring, but the…

Gwen Stefani And Prada Are Cool With Coloring Outside The (Lip) Lines

I’m like a magpie as far as beauty products go — I’m drawn instinctively to anything bright, sparkly, bizarre, or beautiful — but when it comes to what I put on my own face, I’m an unlikely makeup classicist, and I most definitely stay inside the lines. At the S/S 2013 Prada show in Milan,…

Trendspotting: 6 Brand-New Beauty Ideas From NYFW

When a designer strays outside the box of beauty stalwarts, it’s a refreshing change, given our steady diet of so-called “trends” — smoky eyes, red lips, dewy skin, and bold brows. These ubiquitous looks are beautiful and striking, but they’re also easy go-tos, which on principle renders them, well, kind of boring. But with each…

The Top Three Beauty Trends To Watch (And Emulate) This Fall

Brace yourselves: it’s time to start considering fall beauty. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing our lighter, more low-maintenance summer beauty routines, but the forecast will be replete with smoky eyes and vampy lips before we know it. I look to the Autumn/Winter runway shows for a bit of insight into what we’ll…

Beauty Do Or Don’t: White Eyeliner?

I don’t really “do” white eyeliner. As far as its eye-brightening properties go, I find a nude pencil to look infinitely more natural and actually open up the eye, rather than just looking like, well, you’re wearing white liner! To be honest, I’m a little bit afraid of using white, and I’m not entirely sure…

The Best Of Paris Fashion Week Beauty

Paris Fashion Week is my favorite for many reasons, not all of which are a direct result of my all-encompassing Francophilia. I love the grandiose clothes marched down the catwalk, the sense of total, no-holds-barred luxury, and, well, the refined French-ness of it all. It also helps that many of the most iconic designers show…

Chanel Debuts Bedazzled Eyebrows On The Runway

Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we’re talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next…
