VMA-inspired beauty!

My initial thoughts when going through the photos from the VMA's were

1. Man bronzer

2. Lady Gaga has a nice face when not covered with fashion-art

3. I don't know who most of these people are

Then I thought, there are so many terrible...I mean interesting things going on here fashion-wise it's easy to pick out my favourites. AND there were some delicious make up moments too, which reminded me of our very exciting collaboration with www.crushcosmetics.com.au - Check them out for incredible, affordable brands such as NYX (which is hard to get in NZ) and Lime Crime.

But first, an extra special mention to Aubrey O'Day from Danity Kane who wore a Melie Bianco clutch! How awesome to see someone on the red carpet with an accessory that normal people can actually buy!

Photo: Melie Bianco on the red carpet! Aubrey O'Day from Danity Kane with an amazing Melie clutch...https://www.everme.com.au/brands/melie-bianco.html

You can always count on a girl group for colour co-ordination. That Melie Bianco clutch fits in perfectly

In terms of prettiness, I think the best has to be Taylor Swift:

Give her hair stylist a medal, then teach me how to do that look.

It's so good to see a hairstyle that isn't either long and straight, long and wavy, short and pixi. Marilyn would be proud. Taylor isn't carrying a bag, (actually, a lot of them weren't...where did they put their stuff?!) but if she were, I think this one would have been perfect - it's pleasantly simple; that amazing dress, hair and make up doesn't need much accompaniment.

 

Our new addition to the family, Olga Berg

In terms of her make up, that matte red lip is working so well. Wet'n'Wild have a line of lipsticks called Megalast lip colour, and they are actually so good. I have Cherry Bomb and I swear the quality is high-brand worthy. Try Coral-ine or Stoplight Red from www.crushcosmetics.com.au

Wet'n'Wild have conquered the perfect matte lipstick

The next is Ciara - she looks like J-Lo dress-wise, but her make up is so perfect I can't even bear it.

I don't want to be picky, but I sort of wish her hair was tied up

 

I've trawled through www.crushcosmetics.com.au and found these three items that would be great for recreating Ciara's smoky eye in brown/bronze, highlighted skin and pale lips. Sleek is another incredible brand that focuses strongly on face sculpting products and blush palettes (again, hard to find!)

Ciara VMA

Lime Crime lipsticks are highly pigmented and have the best colours. This one is called Coquette. The eye shadow palette by NYX is Champagne and Caviar, and the palette is the Sleek Face Form palette.

Next up is Rita Ora, if only for that incredible train. I hope she had a posse of people keeping wandering feet away from that incredible fabric.

Rita gave up her usual red lipstick for a similar shade to Ciara. But I think the outstanding feature of her make up is the brighting of her under-eye area! The make up artist has obviously gone to town with the pale concealer/highlighting application and it has worked. Try this one:

Hard Candy Undereye Brightener and Concealer Duo

Necessity

 

Lastly, Lady Gaga's face.

Her minimal make up with a statement lip colour relies on flawless skin, e.g a good foundation. This one is fantastic, and cheap, woohoo!

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

Smooth finish foundation

Set it with this:

Wet N Wild Coverall Pressed Powder

Hydrating yet mattifying

Then slick some of this on:

Cult-classic, NYX round lipstick

And you're there.

 

We are so excited about our collaboration with www.crushcosmetics.com.au ! Get onto the site and take a look, make up on a budget is so easy thanks to amazing sites like this. They are based in Australia but ship to NZ!

Happy browsing

PARIS COUTURE WEEK

A good way to procrastinate is by looking at images from fashion shows, the make-up, the clothes, the backstage selfies by models and celebrities...

This is an especially good week for such things because the internet is all a-flutter with images from Paris Couture Week 2013.

Y'know that old echo that comes with the territory of high couture fashion shows..."no-one would actually wear that down the street"...? Well, those whiners sort of have a point. I hate to say this, but sometimes high fashion concepts just aren't practical. But do you have to miss out altogether? Nope.

Accessories are the perfect way to incorporate high fashion trends into your look without replacing your entire wardrobe, or attracting more attention than you wish to on an average weekday.

My favourite designer of the week was Elie Saab. This Lebanese designer has become known for his glittering, ethereal designs, worn most famously on Queen Beyonce herself, Halle Berry and Mila Kunis (you know the one, amazing, floaty lilac creation from the 84th Academy Awards). The images I have  chosen here are but a few of his impeccable designs from Paris couture week...take a look...

Jewel tones and scattered sparkle

Tasteful see-through with shimmer

Pretty intense, I know. But the detail!

Again, jewel-tones and sparkle. Note the luminous skin and nude lip

What's the point here? You guessed it, shimmer and colour. Saab manages to use a heck of a lot of sparkly resources without looking tacky and 6th form ball-night. But how can you incorporate this overall concept into your own style? Maybe these will help...

Elie Saab-inspired sparling accessories

A mere shadow of runway extremes...but inspired nonetheless

 

A last thought; high fashion in it's pure runway form can make us think twice about fashion and the risks we might be willing to take, or the looks we have never considered. Take a look at the pics of the other shows, then trawl through your wardrobe and jewellery box with fresh eyes and see what you can find! I bet there are some combinations you haven't tried yet...
