donna_karan_fall_2009_jourdan_dunn2.jpgWhile everything from metallics to bright neon colors were seen on the runways for Fall 2009, it was the rosy-gold, post-summer looks that peaked our interest, as it looks like a more natural way to transition into the season. Pink and peach tones create a romantic and soft look when used with bronzes and coppers, and is an easy way to give the face a radiant glow. Take a look at our picks for incorporating this look into your beauty routine.




Laura Mercier Mosaic Shimmer Bloc

Each of the four colors in this compact can be used individually or together to add a boost of color and radiance anywhere on the face (we love to use it to highlight cheeks and brow bones) thanks to light-reflecting particles that give the skin a healthy glow. $38,



Estee Lauder Eye Shadow Quad in Sensuous Gold

Make your eyes shine with gorgeous quartet of bronzes. As with all Estee Lauder eye shadows, these offer high color payoff and long-lasting results. Limited Edition. $35,




NARS Eye Shadow Duo in Silk Road

This icy pink and rose gold duo will light up any eye look. The gold flecks in the rose gold shadow adds a touch of sassy, fall-doesn’t-have-to-be-dull flavor. $32,





maybellinelinestylistliner.jpgMaybelline Line Stylist Eyeliner in Bronze Gleam  

To add a simple hint of bronze to your eyes that will also add subtle definition, this eyeliner is our favorite. It makes any novice feel like a pro with its precision of application. The long-lasting formula keeps eyes looking fresh and polished all day and easily washes away at the end of the day. $5.79,




Jane Iredale PurePress Blush in Whisper

A perfect blend of warm peachy-pink, this blush is made pure, nourishing minerals that reduces inflammation and conditions skin while providing a natural-looking wash of just-blushed color. Can also be used on eyes and lips. $26,




Wet ‘n’ Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in Rose Gold

With just the right amount of stickiness (not super tacky, but not sliding off our lips instantly), we love this gloss for it’s pretty shimmer and glossy finish. We have to add the fact that the price tag is definitely very apealing, too. $1.99,




MAC Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick

For creating the ultimate high-impact neutral pout, Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick is our go-to lippie. With a silky texture and brilliant finish, this is one gloss that keep us coming back for more. $18,

dita-von-teese2.jpgWhen it comes to retro-glamour and classic makeup looks, Dita Von Teese has made her mark in the beauty and fashion world. With her distinct style, the celeb has many wondering how she does it. We are here to share a few of her beauty secrets (which really aren’t a secret since she did post these on her Twitter page).



When it comes to foundation, Dita isn’t a snob. She loves using L’Oréal True Match in N1 ($10.95,






To give her fair cheeks a flush of color, Dame and The Perfect Cheek both by MAC ($18.50, are the ones she wears most.






We all know Dita loves to rock a red pout, so what is her favorite shade? “…I like MAC Ruby Woo” ($14,




In addition to her lips, red is her go-to shade for her nails. Essie’s Fishnet Stockings ($8, and MAC Rougemarie ($12, are her top picks.



When we think of face primer ingredients, silicone is typically the one that comes to mind first. Such is not the case with Korres Vitamin E Face Primer. This silicone-free primer is 99% natural and acts more like a moisturizer rather than the typical pre-foundation product. We love it’s fresh, citrus scent and the way it makes our skin so soft and smooth. It also fills in fine lines, all while keeping makeup in place all day. $28,

nude_IMG.jpgFoundations are the best product for creating a more even, flawless complexion. With so many formulations on the market these days, we care most about finding the ones that feel lightweight but give us the coverage we desire. Now that we’re moving into the warm-weather months, these requirements also need to be teamed up with long-lasting finishes that won’t melt away. The following picks are some of our favorites, and for you recessionistas, all cost less than $40.

redpoint NOC-Out Cover-Up Compact.jpg



It is our belief that a good skincare regimen will help us achieve and keep our most healthy, glowing complexion. But as we age, it just so happens that our skin doesn’t always cooperate like we’d prefer. So while we treat the dark spots, freckles and redness, we are happy to use products that help us fake perfect skin. With Redpoint Noc-Out Cover-Up Compact— a trio of different colored concealers that each work in its own way to cover up redness, eliminate the appearance of dark spots and freckles, or help disguise the look of dark circles around the eyes— we can give our skin the fabulous, flawless finish we desire. Use it alone on bare skin or after applying your foundation. $38,
