Temptalia Asks You

Yes, I did. A really good friend of mine was great at shaping to a point, but over time, my brows seemed to get thinner with each reshaping and eventually I decided to grow them back out. I tweezed stray hairs that I knew were not going to be part of any new shape–the ones that were just not even close to that “dream brow.”

Deborah Lippmann for Beauty.com @ Costello Tagliapietra S/S 2012

Today, I went backstage at the Costello Tagliapietra with Beauty.com to check out Deborah Lippmann, who was (obviously!) responsible for the nail look at the show. Lippmann first polished nails with one coat of Waking Up in Vegas (described as a “beautiful putty shade”) and then layered with a coat of Fashion (described as an unusual taupe) to come up with a customized take on nudes and grays but with a warmer undertone.  I personally loved that Deborah Lippmann’s team wore black shirts that said, “Get Nailed on the DL!”

The hair was slicked back (which seems to be a big trend this season), while the makeup was simple but more than neutral with a burnt orange shade done all over the eyes and lips.

The beauty look at BCBGMAXAZRIA is inspired b a woman who just stepped out of the shower after a long healthy workout,” said Mabelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. “Fresh, radiant skin is the star. I added a touch of lip balm to the eyelids for a healthy glow.”

Beauty Breakdown

  • Fit Me! Foundation: Charlotte used her hands to apply this sheer foundation all over the face and neck.
  • Fit Me! Powder: Charlotte applied powder with a light hand, focusing only on the T-zone area and stopping short of a visibly matte effect.
  • Fit Me! Blush in Medium Coral and Deep Plum: Charlotte applied Fit Me! Blush somewhat sporadically around the face to create a naturally flushed look, “as if she’s just come in from a long run.”
  • Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched: Charlotte applied this nourishing lip balm on models’ lips, letting their natural lip color show through. She also added a layer to models’ eyelids for a subtle sheen – an interesting accent to this otherwise clean look.

Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is an incredibly deep, dark navy blue with soft frost finish. It almost seems like navy blue sheen over a blackened-blue base, because the level of darkness is so high, but it doesn’t read blackened blue at all.  It looks a bit like MAC Blue Sheen used dry–but Midnight Sky is so much darker and opaque. Make Up For Ever #81 seems the closest but leans a touch purple.

The formula is buttery and almost creamy (but it is a powder) because of its denser texture. It applies smoothly and the color distributes evenly across the skin. I found it worked well both dry and wet with no real distinguishable difference between the two methods.

P.S. — I swear, I didn’t already review this, but I did review Lapis, which is a medium blue–but the two really are several shades away from each other!
