In the office today listening to The Best of The 80’s and reliving great memories… oops! I think we just dated ourselves! Anyway, here are a few great current looks inspired by some equally great old memories.
We love it so much that we think this layout will become one of our staples. Enjoy!
Our Stylist-At-Large today is BornToTry. He is a student out of Germany and just completed a 50 set Taylor Swift contest. I love how simple but powerful this layout is. Very accessable in its look and feels VERY Taylor!!
We wish that he had a blog that we could direct you to but for now check him out on Polyvore. http://borntotry.polyvore.com/
Just a preview of the covers out for this months Mag Rag.
It would seem that Adele’s appeal is not wavering and we love it!! She looks amazing and this cover just proves how beautiful she is not just inside but out. She may say that she is not a fashion icon, or have a fashion lean, but that does not mean that it doesn’t look darn good on her. Werk!!!
In addition, the nation continues to mourn the untimely death of legend Whitney Houston as evident by the numerous covers. Some of what is being printed is mean spirited but most are respectful. We are still in shock and saddened for her family. It will take a long time to come to terms with it but never fully get over it.
Next RR chat we will dive lips first into our fave: March 2012 Style Watch.
As always we encourage you to support your fashion mags in which ever form fits your style.
Brows have been one of the most challenging parts of doing my make-up. For starters, I have very thin brows which look thinner because of my dark hair. In my 20’s working at a major cosmetic counter for an Estee Lauder company, I really just used their brow filler and moved on to mastering some other point of my face. Now years later I have come across an amazing video master class in brows by Pixiwoo. They really make it seem so easy to have any shape you would like to try on. Using the tools that most of us already have, give or take a special brush or two, they really show us how wonderful this very central point on our face can be. It is about 20 min of some of the best advice that I have gotten on the subject in a long time. She shows an Audrey Hepburn style, Elizabeth Taylor style, Linda Evangelista style and even how to create brows out of thin air.
In order to be prepared for your video class be sure to bring your proper foundation, face powder, eyebrow pencil and eye shadow in the proper shade. Don’t forget your patience and your willingness to experiment. It would probably help to check out some mags for celebs with brows you admire for a starting point. Even if you have nothing at all to work with, you will finish this video with some real tools for your technique kit.
