My Fall '14 Eyes

Fall is just around the corner and so is a makeup change. It's time to empty out your summer tote and restock your fall case. Let's start with Fall 2014 eyes. It's a mixed bag of colours and styles but these three looks are mine to wear.

The Brown Suede Smokey



These gray-brown eyes stole the Oscar de la Renta show for Fall 2014. It's a bit sultry for a day look but the image below, from Clarins, is a softer, more 'work-able' version. Perhaps without the dark water line and inner eye corner line. The neutral lip colour compliments well.


The Silver Sweep


I swooned when I saw this cloud-like eye on Richard Chai's Fall '14 catwalk. It's beautifully brightening! Silver reflects light so it's an excellent choice for tired eyes. However, if you have a few laugh lines, keep the shimmer light and on the inner half of your lid. A matte gray would be a complimentary contour to blend it out with.

The Red Punk


Rodarte's Fall '14 eye kept bringing me back for more. It's obviously way too intense for any occasion I'd be exposed to, but the colours are simply stunning. Inspired by “delicate and youthful beauty… ephemeral and nostalgic, creating a beautiful glow”. I agree. Yes it is a bit punk and glittery but I'm inspired.

DIY - Easy Eyeline Eraser

Eye cream is such a necessity for us ladies! Our skin is so delicate in these areas and it endures the most movement because we love to smile and have a good laugh. If you feel that your expressive nature is taking over, and some fine lines are a little more noticeable, read on. 



There are heaps of creams and serums on the market that claim to vanish these fine lines and brighten our dark bags, but they are expensive and contain so many extra 'filler'
ingredients that are totally unnecessary. For a natural moisturizer that targets that delicate under-eye area and boosts collagen production, you'll only need a mason jar and three ingredients!!!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Vitamin E Capsules
  • 3 drops of Essential Rose Oil
Stir one half a cup of coconut oil into a smooth mixture, not too runny and not too clumpy. Break open the two vitamin E capsules and add the oil to the coconut oil. Mix until oils are dissolved with one another. This mixture alone is amazing, but if you have tired puffy eyes, the addition of essential rose oil will calm and brighten the bags. Store your remedy in the fridge so the consistency remains creamy and not melted/separated. The cooled formula will also feel amazing.

What an easy remedy to a common problem. Laugh away!!!

Low & Long

Everywhere I turn I see skyline of high ponies and buns. I stand in the mix. But ladies! It's time to shift from high to low. Low and long ponies are the stylish way for summer locks. It was a statement in Spring, and it's pushing through. 

Kind of Low,



Or Way Low,



Either way, it's due time to do the swap.
