Beauty Buzz: In the Buff
Written by: admin | Beauty Buzz

nude face makeupWe’ve all heard of and possibly thrown around the term, “bedroom eyes.”   This probably implies to most a smokey eye or a red lip (which you can learn how to do HERE and HERE).  However, sometimes the sexiest way a woman can look is when she appears to have done nothing at all.  Like many fashion trends, what women find sexy or stylish is totally unappealing to the opposite sex. There’s a reason I wear red lipstick on first dates (as documented here).  But in the off chance that you are hoping to pucker up with Prince Charming, try going for the “no makeup” makeup look which can be achieved by using neutral shades, glowing bronzes, and soft peaches.  And don’t forget that the first step to any sweet naked face is a steadfast skincare routine.

Beauty Buzz: American Beauty
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

fourth of july makeupYou know how I like a good theme party?  Well, call me a hipster, but I really only like them when they’re ironic.  The thought of green on St. Patrick’s Day makes me want to punch a leprechaun and please don’t think for one split second you’ll catch me this weekend wearing star spangled swimwear.  But before you call me a wet blanket, I understand the importance of being patriotic.  I know of the need for all-American nail art and the importance of playing along.  Better than flaunting a flag outright?  Add some red, white, and blue to your makeup bag… making you a true American beauty.

Beauty Buzz: Double Time
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

woman-vanityI recently read a parody about the differences between men and women- one of which was the number of products stowed in our bathroom cabinets.  They quipped men used about six and women had probably amassed over two hundred (men could identify only twenty of those items).  While, I certainly don’t have that many because I run a tight ship in my medicine cabinet, there’s not much room for anyone else’s shaving cream.  Last week was all about beauty products that work their magic overnight, but how about saving room when packing for weekends away?  The only thing more terrifying to a man than opening his own medicine cabinet to find the tampons you’ve stashed there is seeing you show up with two bags- one for your clothing and another for the sole purpose of your beauty regime.  Rememer, we woke up like this.  Save time, money, and space (and your boyfriend’s sanity) by employing products that are multipurpose.  Whether it be using conditioner as shaving cream or Aquaphor as both lip and eyelash treatments or the cult classic, NARS multiple for cheeks, lids, and lips, these products are working double (and sometimes triple) time.

Beauty Buzz: Fresh Face- Spring 2014
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

spring 2014 beautyIt’s probably difficult to even begin thinking about your spring beauty regimen with lips scratchier than sandpaper, snot encrusted nostrils and eyeballs that won’t.stop.watering.  I’ve basically thrown in the towel on a full face of makeup at this point… eyeliner is entirely out of the question unless I want to look like it’s the morning after while it’s still the night of.  Sure, the winter is brutal for beauty, but let’s not forget that there comes a point in New York ladies’ lives, say around July, wherein we give up on makeup altogether again as it will have run down our faces and right onto our blouses before we’ve even completed our commutes.  Therefore, spring is just about the only time where we can be playful with our makeup palette and anticipate our faces staying in place for most of the day.

The makeup and hair for spring this year was sort of divided into two camps.  While some designers like Michael Kors and Alexander Wang went for clean, fresh, bronzed barely there faces and “I woke up like this” hair, others like Rag & Bone painted lips and eyelids with bright pops of colors.  Most notably was blue for eyes and while red and berry lips were still very much trends, the most prevalent pout was lacquered up in orange.  This isn’t the first time we’ve seen orange lips on the runways and I’m still not sold, but perhaps you can make the look come across as something other than having housed a bag of Cheetos.  If you didn’t wake up with Olsen hair, a low sleek ponytail seen at Jason Wu or braided crown a la Naeem Khan are good ways to camouflage a potentially bad hair day.  Wide cloth headbands at Vera Wang as well as flowered accoutrements at Zac Posen adorned updos as well.  The cat eye remained strong.  So strong, in fact, that makeup artists continued the bold black liner all the way around the eyes.  And speaking of cat’s, claws were kept quite simple.  Many opted for soft shades accented with silver space age stripes and others chose the reverse French manicure, both proving that nail art is here to stay for at least another season.  So schedule your facials, ladies.  It’s time to prep your canvas for a very colorful spring.

Beauty Buzz: Shine Bright Like a… Garnet
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

garnet makeupYour clothing isn’t the only place that could benefit from this month’s dedicated color of garnet.  Your eyes, lips, and nails could all also use a healthy dose of the hue.  An update to fire engine red, garnet gives a more goth look to lips, a sultrier shade to your nails, and won’t leave your lids looking like you’ve come down with a case of pink eye.  Use the images above for inspiration and go ahead and give garnet a spot in your makeup bag.
