Jennifer Lawrence Makeup Tutorial

I will admit it, I have a crush.....a girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence. Honestly, these days, who doesn't?! One can't help but like this young, talented and endearing actress.

She wears a smokey eye for most glamorous events and keeps it simple for other outings. This look is fabulous if you have a hooded eye. The keys to this look is to extend the wing, go lower on the bottom, go slightly above the crease and keep the upper lash liner thin.

Enjoy and take care,

S/S 2013 Trends - Ethereal/ Healthy Skin

Listening to the strings of Vivaldi's Spring, transports me out of the greyness that is the lingering winter and inspires me to write about Spring and Summer Trends. Graphic liner and colours aside, the main focus seemed to be beautiful, glowing and radiant skin. Bring out your highlighter guys and gals because nothing is more youthful or more of a metaphor for spring, then shedding the winter layers of dullness to expose fresh and ethereal skin. Matthew Williamson, Marni, Theyskens' Theory and Balmain captured this perfectly. Along the same lines, is the ubiquitous bronzed glow. However, this season it is healthy and natural looking. Gone is the spray tan a la orange, it is replaced by a subtle refined bronze.

While not looking difficult, this look does require the illusion of perfect skin. So taking care of it properly along with a great moisturiser, foundation and concealer are imperative. Following a good base, is placing a cream highlighter strategically. If you are going for a bronzed look, use cream bronzers as they blend into the skin better and thus create a natural look. Keep eye makeup to a minimum and use creams. Cheeks should also be restrained and creamy.
