New York Fashion Week: Backstage at Juan Carlos Obando


The makeup for this show was very natural, beautiful skin. Everything had a very dewy look, and I’m sure it was kept natural because the hair was actually covered in clay, combed through, and covered in gold dust. Very cool.   Read More »

New York Fashion Week Backstage: Jeremy Scott


I’ve been able to go backstage for a few fashion shows this week, and by FAR this was my favorite. Most of the shows I saw focused on gorgeous, dewy skin, with neutral or gold eyeshadow.

MAC Wonder Woman Collection: Wonder Woman Lipglass


  I had seen pictures of the lipglosses from this collection awhile ago and couldn’t believe the size of the lipglass wand! Seeing it in person, it seemed even larger than I had assumed it would be. It’s HUGE. It’s hard to get the wand out of the tube as well, the doefoot application kinda gets stuck and you have ... Read More »
