NYFW Fall 2016 Beauty Trends

NYFW Fall 2016 Beauty Trends

There may, this season, have been less excitement and buzz around NYFW in light of the whole Mercedes Benz debacle and so many designers opting instead to show “in season” (the frigid temperatures didn’t help either…), but there was still plenty to love in terms of beauty inspiration.

Chantecaille Giveaway: Ten Protect the Wolves Eye Shade Trios!

I have long loved Chantecaille’s charitable eye shadow palettes, whether they’re benefitting sea turtles, promoting awareness of our planet’s quickly-melting glaciers, or in the latest case, helping to protect and repopulate gray wolves.

Grunge-Inspired Eye Makeup at Fashion Month: Lashing Out

We try so hard to get our mascara to look natural, but the makeup artists of Spring/Summer 2016’s Fashion Month have another idea in mind – clumpy, grunge-inspired lashes of all colors and lengths.

Chantecaille Glacier Palette

Chantecaille Glacier Palette: A Frozen Finish

Not a single day passes when I’m not wearing Chantecaille on my face, whether it’s the rich, rose oil or my favorite lip gloss in aptly-named “Pretty”. The quality is just unsurpassable…

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

It’s rare to find an eyeshadow palette to write home about. Leave it to Hourglass to dazzle with something unique (beyond the expected high quality). They just launched seven palettes called Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes.
