NARS-Flowers-Eyeshadow-Palette.jpgIf you’re a beauty enthusiast, chances are you’ve heard about the NARS Andy Warhol collection … and have been dying to get your hands on it. Well, we have good news for you—the collection is finally live! And we’re here to tell you it’s just as amazing in person as you’ve been hoping it would be! Specifically the NARS Flowers Eyeshadow Palette, which caught and held our attention the moment we laid eyes on it.

There are actually three different palettes you can choose from, but we’re loving Flowers 1, with its mix of white, rose, lavender, gold, lavender grey and black shadows crafted into beautiful Warhol-esque flowers. Each of the palettes draws from Warhol’s famous silkscreen flora. Etched into the interior mirror of Flowers 1 is Warhol’s quote, “If you can convince yourself that you look fabulous, you can save yourself the trouble of primping.”

The only problem we have with this palette is that we can’t bring ourselves to actually use it! It’s just way too beautiful—and it makes us feel like we have a piece of real Warhol art in our home.

When it comes to beauty trends, what goes around always comes (back) around. In this case the trend is bold eyeliner in fun, and funky, colors. Taking a page from Leslie Mann’s beauty diary, I just know that bright purple, vivid teal and shimmery gold eyeshadows are all going to be super-hot this fall. But if you’re not trying to look like Rainbow Bright, the trick is to apply just a little of your bright liner to the upper lid and then apply a neutral shadow to blend it in. Leslie opted for Lancôme’s Design Gel Eyeliner in Dress Up Teal and paired it with their Design Inifinté 24H in Eternal Gold and Design Eye Shadow in Burnt Sand.

Vanessa Hudgens’ has always been a cutie-pie, but in the past several years I’ve seen her take her look up a notch. Once known as the ‘High School Musical’ starlet, this young Hollywood actress is doing her part to continue to be talked about … and for all the right reasons! At Variety’s Power 6th Annual of Youth Presented event she looked equal parts fresh and young mixed with mature style and old Hollywood glamour. It was her darkly lined eyes that really caught my attention. Their precision lining, extending from one corner of the eye to the other, was impeccably done. 

To copy this look you’ll need a thin-tipped eyeliner brush and a gel eyeliner, like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. Dip the very tip of the brush into the eyeliner and, using light pressure, apply liner all around the lower and upper lid line. Start light and once you feel you have the perfect base coat, apply a couple more traces to get the shading just right. The trick to this level of lining is in the inner eye fold (nearest the nose) make sure you connect the lower and the upper lids right at the end point and don’t extend the line too far, to avoid a cat eye look.

I am a sucker for creatively packaged makeup. Some of my fave blushes and bronzers are the ones that come in great mosaic-style color patterns — best of all, all the colors always swirl perfectly to create the perfect shade. As soon as I saw the Dior Fall Look Jungle Palette my interest was piqued. Usually I’m very particular about applying one shadow at a time, but these blended shades look perfectly coordinated and I bet they swirl together to create the perfect bronzed eye look. Keep in mind that bronzed lids are a great transition to fall’s deeper smoky eye looks. As a bonus, the palette also packs a shimmery nude gloss in the palette so your lips don’t miss out on the fun.

Wandering Target is always a dangerous proposition for me, as I never leave with just the thing(s) I went in for. One wandering day I found the Sonia Kashuk Eye Definer. And what a great purchase it was. It creates the perfect line every time, as thin or as thick as you desire. It can take me from daytime classic to evening smokey with just a couple swipes and best of all it doesn’t smudge; even after a killer workout my makeup is entirely intact. And you can’t beat the price!
