Adding Definition with Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink

Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink

The past few times I’ve gone shopping, I’ve been on the hunt for a big floppy straw hat with a black band. I can envision myself wearing it all the time this Summer with huge cat-eye sunnies and fun, bold lip colors.

Something about this look says classic yet fun to me, and I can’t imagine it without the perfect winged eyeliner. My current pick has been the Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink ($28 US.

Playing with Luminosity with the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow for Summer 2014

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow review

When it comes to eyeshadows, I like formulas that encourage luminosity and create a bright-eyed look. Naturally, I was beyond excited to see that NARS had come up with a new eyeshadow formula for Summer 2014 that promises both “luminous sheen” and intense color.

Releasing this July on narscosmetics.com, the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29 US) will be available in 12 colors. The biggest draw for this particular product is that it is designed to be used both wet and dry to achieve different effects.

Lip Lust: Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick

Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick

As someone who obsesses over the tiniest variations in color, ombre is a trend that I personally am not giving up. I adore the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle!) gradation that really expresses how rich and diverse color is.

Hard Candy’s Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner POPS in New Neon Shades!

Hard Candy Walk the Line liquid eyeliner

My favorite season Summer is officially here in just two short weeks. To me, it’s all about casual and relaxed, which couldn’t describe my style more. Case in point: I’ve been living in a pair of faded, ripped denim shorts that I like to pair with printed TOMS shoes.

My makeup has been just as fun too. I love bright pops of colors on the face like fuchsia lips or a dash of neon on the eyes. Speaking of, the new Hard Candy Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner ($6 US) colors from their Spring 2014 collection are perfect for getting that Summer-ready look.

Beautiful Design Makes the New NARS Brush Line Stand Out

NARS Brushes

To me, geishas are an intriguing source of fascination and inspiration. I wrote a research paper about them a few years ago, but they continue to interest me as a subject, and I hope to write a thesis about them in the future.

Of course when I first saw the new NARS brush line, the sleek designs instantly reminded me of black lacquer, like the kind that is ubiquitous in a geisha’s world. Naturally, the aesthetic speaks to me.
