‘Oceanic View’ Look
This look was inspired by the colors in my top…and it reminded me of the colors by the ocean…not much more to be said really…except today had a much better start that yesterday. Hello hump day!
I started off wit…
I’m back with pictures from another bridal trial. Oftentimes, when I work on Southeast Asian Brides, we’ll do more than one look. I’ve done up to four look changes because their traditional wedding process can last a few days time.

Typically, the bride will want something more natural or traditional and then go for a dramatic look. I often ask them to bring a piece of their outfit so that we can get inspiration for the look.
In the picture, you’ll see both eye looks. For each look, I’ll modify the lip and cheek color but the canvas stays the same. One look was for the ceremony. I went for the traditional palette for Indian brides of golds, reds, coppers and bronzes. For the evening, we mixed it up and went for a smokey aqua eye.
The wedding is next month. I’ll make sure and take pics for you all.
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
As I mentioned yesterday, a new season means it’s time to make some changes and to adjust your beauty routine to reflect the new season ahead. For whatever reason, it seems like the move into fall brings with it the most change…and it makes me want to update my beauty products and clothes more than at other season changes throughout the year.
No matter what season we’re in, I think we all want the basics: glowing skin, kissable lips, rich hair color and perfectly styled strands. Here are some tips and beauty buys to keep you looking effortlessly chic throughout the fall season from the folks over at Proctor & Gamble (don’t laugh–they’re the home of some of your favorite beauty products like Pantene, Cover Girl, and Olay!).
Variations of warm reds, red-auburns and strawberry will be the color looks of the season. Whatever your hair color, fall looks will be fresh – the days of visible roots are over! Get the vibrant fall color you want with Clairol Perfect 10. The AminoGlycine technology creates depth and dimension using high-gloss, high-shine color for flawless gray coverage in just 10 minutes. (No visible roots! Ah! I need to get to my salon ASAP!)
Flat hair is so last season! Fall is all about making a statement with your look – including your hair style. Boost strands to reveal ultimate volume and bounce with the NEW Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Triple Action Volume Mousse. It is formulated to keep hair from falling flat, creating effortless volume by lifting at the root and extending through strands. (I could really use this stuff! My hair has seemed a bit too flat lately…)
This season give your skin a fresh start and a firmer, younger look. The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum is a super concentrated serum clinically proven to help firm skin’s appearance across three key zones – the face, neck, and décolletage after only five days. Containing Olay’s most concentrated amino-peptide complex, this hydrating serum is the perfect pre-makeup skin solution. (I love Olay. For me, they can do no wrong!)
- Insider tip from Olay Celebrity Makeup Artist Bruce Grayson: “Great makeup starts with great skincare. The key to prepping and hydrating the skin without overdoing it is using a product that’s powerful yet lightweight.”
Complementing all skin tones, sheer lipsticks in rose, pink, peach and beige will be seen this fall season. Soft color gloss will mimic nude lips and add fullness. COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain gives lips a natural look and the innovative formula delivers precision application and color that lasts without the sticky, heavy layer of many traditional lipsticks. Lips feel bare and look beautiful – what more could a woman want from her lip color? (I am currently on the hunt for a killer fall lip product and will happily accept any suggestions you want to throw my way!)
- Insider tip from COVERGIRL Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern: “To achieve the perfect pout and smooth lips, start by exfoliating your lips with warm water and a wash cloth, then apply an emollient lip balm to deeply nourish lips throughout the night.”
