Lancome’s Oscillation Mascara ($34.00) was available for one-day for early purchase back in July. My curiousity was piqued enough for me to shell out the big bucks and pick one up from my local Lancome Boutique. I’ve been using it on and off since then, trying to decide whether I love it or just like it. Some days, I love it, and other days, it’s not a bad mascara, but it doesn’t give me the volume I want.

Here are the requirements in my holy grail mascara:

  • Thickens lashes without clumping
  • Lengthens lashes to false lashes’ length or BEYOND!
  • Blackest of black color
  • Doesn’t flake or smudge during the day
  • Easy to use on both upper and lower lashes

How does Lancome’s Oscillation measure up? Continue reading →

On Monday, I took my little sister back to school shopping, and since I was in a shopping mood myself, I figured I’d sneak a few peeks while I was with her. When I shop for clothes, I’ve learned that a neutral look is best. I like to coordinate colors with my outfit, and if they clash, it drives me bananas. In fact, I’ve often tried something on that clashes, and then not liked the outfit–when in reality, I’d have loved it if the makeup matched! Thus, something neutral and easy that can go with everything is ideal. I thought I’d use a smidge of teal to add some pop overall.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral white highlighter), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (green-toned gold), Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Liner (teal), Lancome Oscillation mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Peachykeen blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Givenchy Romantic Dandy lipstick (pink), C-Thru lipglass (nude beige)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: N/A

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Ricepaper eyeshadow to lower lid with the 239. Line lower lash line with Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Liner. Soften edge with Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow smudged with the 219. Sweep apples of cheeks with Peachykeen using the 129. Apply Givenchy Romantic Dandy lipstick to lips, and then top with C-Thru lipglass for color and shine.

PROENZA SCHOULER
Hair lead: Didier Malige for ghd
ghd lead: Omar Lopez

“Industrial Meets Deco” | Jack and Lazaro rocked the runway by merging a military feel with late 70s and early 80s inspired shapes and lines, to create a collection that was equal parts tough, confident and feminine.

To compliment the juxtaposed runway looks, Didier Malige for ghd led the Directive Team to create a deeply parted, eye-sweeping finger wave, artfully pulled back to one side and cascading down one shoulder. Using the ghd IV mini styler, a modern “finger wave” was created by sectioning off hair, and starting at the crown gently rocking the iron back and forth all the way to the ends. Then, ghd sea spray was worked through ghd Runway Report the model’s hair to soften the wave and add light hold. Next, the hair was set with clips around the face to help accentuate the waves. Finally, the clips were removed, and the hair was swept back to one side and secured using bobby pins, while the front fell loosely over one eye a la 1970s Jerry Hall. The look was finished with ghd ultimate hairspray.
