Winging It ; )

30 Sep

Fall is in full swing and so are all the delightful fall beauty trends!!! From smokey eyes to red lips to my fave WING TIPS!!!!  The cat eye is definitely a staple that is here to stay this fall.  From a demure flick to a full out wing, you can’t go wrong with this sexy, playful addition to your beauty routine. Try MAC fluidline ($15)  in black track for a seamless application and a smudge-free finish. And if you’re feeling extra fancy try adding  a pop of color ; )

 

Check below for an how-to on the classic cat eye….happy winging ; )

Blowing Smoke

25 Aug

 The smokey eye has been a classic staple for decades and this fall is no exception. But with a twist! Instead of just using classic smokey colors (black, gray, brown) try using jewel tones…….

Golds…..

Navy……..

paired with wine colored lips (another fall staple)……….

or with the classic nude lip……….

Whatever your fancy, there is a smokey eye look for you ; )

It’s Fall Snitches!!!!!!!

It’s that time of year again, when the days start to get shorter, the air starts to get a little cooler, and the patter of  little feet fill the schools again. Yes, it’s that time indeed, FALL FASHION time!!!! Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE summer. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. But NOTHING is better than fall fashion. Everyone knows it. The magazines are twice as big, chock full of wonderful delights. They’re filled with boots, bags, jackets, sweaters, DENIM, coats, AND how to wear them fashionably. And of course we can’t forget about all the fall beauty trends! This week The Beauty Aficionado is dedicating the whole week to fall fashion and its trends *swoon* Here is a little preview in what’s in the “now”. In the words of Rachel Zoe, ” I die”. Enjoy!

Kiss my (red) lips

19 Aug

As you all know fall is fastly approaching and you know what that means….FALL BEAUTY TRENDS!!!!! The red lip is IN and it is smokin’ HOT!!!! From different shades to different textures (i.e glossy, matte, etc.)the red lip is all the rage down the runways and featured in all the major magazines. As you all get to know me, you will find that I’m a major Rih-Rih fan  and that’s basically all she wears:

which is definitely ok by me!!!!! And ladies just as a tip….to keep your red lipstick, well, on your lips, fill in entire lip with a similar red liner and then apply lipstick. Also if you want to play with the shade, try layering a fuschia gloss over your red lip and watch it pop!! Happy kissing!!! *MUAH*
