NYFW: Blue Smoke Beauty Look: Pro Tips to Get the Look at Home‏

192861acf361534b77eaee5f86dd597d

New York Fashion Week is officially here! In case you can’t make it to NYC, Mary Kay Celeb Makeup Artist Luis Casco is on the scene at Lincoln Center scoping out the hottest beauty trends to share with you and your readers.

Inspired by sapphire smoky eyes seen around NYC, Luis created a soft, smoky doe-eyed look called Blue Smoke that’s perfect for special daytime events, but can be easily adapted for night.

Follow Luis’ tips below to get this Fashion Week look at home:

  • Start with an eye primer for serious lasting power.
  • Sweep a shimmery champagne eye shadow onto lids as a base and across brow bone to highlight.

Using Limited Edition Mary Kay® Midnight Jewels Eye Color Palette in Sapphire Noir:

  • Smudge the darker blue shadow along upper lash line and outer third of lower lash line.
  • Apply the lighter blue shade from lash line to crease and blend upward to create a rounded shape.
  • To really get that doe-eyed look, curl eyelashes before applying two coats of lengthening mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Focus on the eyes and keep the rest of the face simply glowing by lightly sweeping bronzer all over the face and applying sheer peachy blush on the apples of the cheeks.

Apply a nude lipstick like Limited Edition Mary Kay® Midnight Jewels Semi-Matte Lipstick in Pink Moonstone. Keep the look fresh with Mary Kay® Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinävia.

To take this Fashion Week chic look from day to night, use black gel eyeliner on your upper lids and add an extra coat of black mascara for some extra drama!

Kim Kardashian goes naked for the latest British GQ magazine!

article-2744235-210CE53000000578-938_634x842

Kim Kardashian leaves little to the imagination in the new issue of British GQ!

The reality star, 33, posed completely naked for several pictures – including the cover shot. GQ named Kanye West’s wife their Woman of the Year.

“What a huge honor to win Woman of the Year,” she says. “It’s so special. I want to thank my husband [Kanye West] for making me feel like the Woman of the Year every single day.”

“My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life,” Kardashian tells GQ. But she isn’t ready to admit if they’ve made sex tape.

“So far as the sex tape is concerned, whether or not we’ve made another … If we have, it’s never something I want to go public,” she says.

“I never want to make the same mistake twice,” she adds, referring to the 2007 video with her then-boyfriend Ray J.

After these images, Kardashian may have to step up her Instagram game, which suddenly seems a bit tame by comparison.

CoverGirl gets ready for football season in style!

o-FOOTBALL-COVERGIRL-MAKEUP-570

CoverGirl has revealed an exclusive first look at their New York Giants #GameFace to Huffington Post, and we’re kind of LOVING it!

As the official beauty sponsor of the NFL, the cosmetics brand created 32 makeup looks so that fans can represent whether they’re watching the games on their couches or sitting near the 50 yard line.

Giants fans wearing head-to-toe red, white and blue can easily look tacky. However, the combination of colors used here blend exceptionally well into a graphic, winged eye and bold red lip.

If I attempted this look – they’d probably lock me up somewhere. Can you imagine actually trying this makeup in real life? :) I think you can pull it off…… if you’re a supermodel. :)

Zoya Fall 2014: ENTICE and IGNITE

zoya entice

Zoya Entice Collection

All the swatches are taken with one coat of polish. So you can see just how great these colors look even with a single coat.

zoya veronica 2

Veronica- a deep reddened-berry colored creme. Love the berry red shade for fall.

Zoya Ryan

Ryan -  a dark navy blue creme.  A very dark blue navy, I love how dark it is but it still is obviously a blue shade not black.

zoya genevie

Geneviev – A very gray blue shade with a tiny hint of shimmer. I love this shade on, such a beautiful color.

zoya margo

Margo –  A  purple creme with red undertones. Love this as a mani and pedi color.

zoya claire

Claire – A very sexy burgundy creme.  Made for Fall and the perfect va va voom shade for date night! 

zoya Nyssa

Nyssa – The looked of milk chocolate. I never thought I would like brown nail polish, but Nyssa is such a beautiful and wearable Fall shade. 

I really love the Entice Collection, the bright vibrant colors are perfect for fall. And I love that they look great with one coat or two. And they are very fade and chip resistant.

zoya ignite

Zoya Ignite Collection

zoya autumn

Autumn – The epitome of fall this metallic orange shade with golden shimmer has me ready to hang my Fall wreath. Much more wearable than I expected but it was my lease favorite of the two collections. I think this color would be gorgeous on warm skin tones.

zoya yuna

Yuna –  A soft gray with specks of gold and a faint green shimmer. I love this shade, the gray color is simply beautiful.

zoya teigen

Teigen – A sparkly red raspberry with gold and red shimmer. One coat of this is pretty, two coats and I am in love. I painted my nails and gave my niece a mani/pedi with Teigen I love it so much.  Great for now and would be beautiful for Christmas and Valentines.

zoya india

India – Another showstopper this deep burgundy shade has red and gold shimmer that really makes it shine.

zoya remy

 

Remy – Even Ariel would trade her fins for this shade. A gorgeous ocean blue green with blue and gold shimmer. The more I look at this color the more I love it.

Zoya Sansa

Sansa – One of my favorites at first look. A gorgeous deep purple with gold and purple shimmer this color is my new go to Fall shade.

The Ignite collection is one of my favorites in a very long time. The colors are all beautiful the hardest part is choosing what color to wear. I love that they have a shimmery glitter but are still easy to remove. And the very best part even on my stubborn nails this polish wears for days without fading or chipping. I’m not sure how Zoya does it but I’m hooked!

Zoya polishes can be purchased at www.zoya.com.  You can also keep up with Zoya on Instagram and Facebook and watch for the special deals they run!
