It feels like there’s been a complete ombré takeover in the world of beauty. From lips to nails, this gradient-heavy trend is blowing up my Instagram. So I decided to apply the look to my eye makeup for my collaboration with Refinery29. And yes, while most smoky eyes are “ombré” by definition with its browns, grays, and black, I’m making the gradiant more noticeable with two widely different colors: white and teal. The colors are intense but with this tutorial you might be inspired to try your own ombré mix.
On my latest trip to New York I caught up with designer Kaelen Haworth at her ridiculously gorgeous Bond Street loft. It was my first shoot after arriving on a 6 AM flight and Kaelen was so lovely. I got the deets on her latest projects, swoon-worthy beauty regimen (seriously-her skin is flawless) and of course got to play with Lola, her adorable pup. Enjoy!
Last week in New York, I sat down with MAC royalty, Lyne Desnoyers. I caught up with the French stunner in Nolita to chat about her role at MAC and new life in the city.
“I’m originally from France but I’ve been living in New York for a short while now. Moving to New York was a great opportunity. I thought it was going to be a lot harder. But New York is such an incredible multicultural place where being a foreigner is not a big deal. The city is rather easy and has an incredible energy. I am very intrigued by how it all works here. I see the differences and I appreciate them for what they are, there is no sense in trying to compare cultures.
Yes, winter is supposed to be cold, but lately there’s an extra chill to the air and the frosty weather doesn’t seem to be leaving anytime soon. I have become a slave to my lip balm but really, how many coats of Carmex do you need in a day? Everyone knows that winter is the best season to wear a darker lip, so I’m leaving my chapstick on the nightstand and opting for some bolder hues. Here are some of my favorite colors for a memorable winter pout.
Archie Comic’s leading ladies invited The Formula into their homes last week; they spilled their beauty secrets and personal favorites from their soon to be released collaboration with MAC cosmetics. Enjoy!
Last night two of the biggest fashion parties of the year took place: The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist Event and the FGI Night of the Stars gala. I caught up with Snob Global Media’s adorable mastermind, Tina Craig, who flew in to attend the latter event as honoree Derek Lam’s personal guest. We talked beauty, her latest denim collaboration and commiserated over traveling with carry-on luggage and all while getting ready in under thirty minutes.
