Trends of Spring 2011 - Cat Eye
The graphic cat eye has definitely made a comeback in the collections of many designers for the Spring ‘11 runways. But put away your basic black liquid liner. This coming year is all about color. Vibrant yellows, day-glow greens, sophisticated whites, and sultry purples; almost every shade except for the iconic black. Begin this look by lining the upper lashline in a thick cat eye shape...

Review: Kracie Naive Foaming Facial Cleanser
Sorry for the lack of posts in the last few days; I’ve just been ridiculously not at home or a near a computer most of the time. I had planned to post this review on Friday, but due to my lack of technology recently, here it is now! Let me tell you, I’ve run the gamut of facial cleansers trying to find ones that can combat my extremely oily skin. Aveda, Shiseido, Neutrogena, St....
The Chanel Smokey Eye
Chanel is relatively known for producing stunning makeup looks at all of its shows, and its nail polishes are some of the most sought after in the business, often selling out within days of release (anyone remember “Jade”? Yeah…) Anywho, this season is no different. Chanel seems to be setting the stage for green as the new black, blending together shades of emerald, grey, and...

Look of the Day - Alexander Mcqueen S/S '11
The stunning detail work (such as the cutout beneath the neckline, the ruffling on the skirt, and the impeccably sewn sleeves) and seamless blending of a stiffer fabric with a romantic, floral pattern that evokes an almost confusing (but somehow comforting) mixture of thoughts revolving around nature earth-mother, leather biker-chick, and rebellious medieval aristocrat (looking at that impeccably...
Dior Fall 2010 Couture-Beauty
Dior was channeling some serious florals with their makeup and hair this season. Eye makeup evoked leaves and colorful petals with their rectangular designs and sweepingly elegant curves in vibrant oranges, greens, electric blues, and dayglo yellows, while hair was reminiscent of topiary sculptures. Skin was kept pale and milky, accented by deep berry and plum lips. Brows were elongated and...
Prada Fall 2010 Menswear-Final Look

Marc Jacobs BANG Review
Well, it’s 31 minutes late for “Fragrance Friday”, but here’s my review for Marc Jacobs BANG. With an ad campaign that sparked huge controversy in the fashion industry, this cologne has certainly made a distinct niche for itself in the fragrance world. But is that necessarily a good thing? Read on to find out. Browsing the wide selection of mildly provocative tee...
Christian Dior S/S '11 RTW
Seems like the hair and makeup team at Dior is leaning towards a modernized ’50s glam with their latest runway show, featuring bright, almost Crayola-ish creamy eyes, sumptuous matte red lips, and fantastic florals. And that little sailor’s cap and the models’ soft-yet-sculpted ringlets? Very romantic, fun, with almost a gamine-like feel to it. Check out some of the backstage...
Stunning Orange Eyeshadow at Armani Privé Fall...
Everyone in the beauty industry has been shocked by the rise of the orange eyeshadow trend this year on the Fall runways. It was perhaps one of the most controversial, and then most widely embraced makeup trends of the season, and here, I believe we can see why. Artists at the Armani Privé show have created a stunning burnt orange/amber smokey eye that really epitomizes why this color works....
Anonymous asked: you're soo self absorbed
Well, I’m back. Thanks to the fantastic Dana Heng, I’ve decided to take up blogging again. My first project is going to be reviewing each and every item in my makeup kit from the drugstore shadows to the department store compacts. Then we’ll move into hair (of which I actually don’t own that many products). And from now on, every Friday is gonna be “Fragrance...
