Emily Blunt’s Neon Eye: Snob or Slob?

I think Emily Blunt looked fantastic at this year’s Met Gala. In fact her look has stuck with me even weeks later because while it’s a bit out there, I think her take on punk could work even for a non-punk themed evening out. The key is pairing this bold eye makeup look with an … Continue reading Emily Blunt’s Neon Eye: Snob or Slob?

I never considered the shade – it just doesn’t seem like it would flatter someone as pale as I am. Plus … Continue reading Get the Look: White Nail Polish

Trend Alert: Punk Nail Art

No one would accuse punk style of seeming very put-together, which makes the punk nail art inherently confusing. In the ‘80s, it was all about chipped, black nails. Of course no one dared try that at the MET Gala (she would have been the truest punk there). It was all about fancy gowns, big jewels, … Continue reading Trend Alert: Punk Nail Art

Recently she stepped out on the red carpet with a rosy pink lip that’s perfect for spring/summer.
