Dolce & Gabbbana Launches Sicilian Jewels Holiday 2013 Collection

November 1st, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

For Holiday 2013, designer beauty brand Dolce & Gabbbana bring us Sicilian Jewels, a collection of four gem-like Intense Nail Lacquers with matching Classic Cream Lipsticks.

Dolce & Gabbbana Launches Sicilian Jewels Holiday 2013 Collection
“Matching your lipstick to your nail lacquer is a hot makeup trend. We chose four new shades that showcase the theatrical and playful side of looking good: they are so shiny and special that they’ll be a perfect complement to any holiday or New Year outfit. They can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewelry.” explained Dolce & Gabbana Make Up Creative Advisor, Pat McGrath.

The colors are:

Ruby: Deep red
Amethyst: Bright purple
Emerald: Ice-cold, luminous green
Topaz: Golden amber-yellow

I can understand matching red lips with red nails, even purple, but green nails and green lips? Now that’s new!

Sicilian Jewels Collection will be available at counters starting November 15th. Classic Cream Lipstick and Intense Nail Lacquer will retail $35 and $24, respectively.

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To echo the neon green metallic seen in the shoes and clothing of the Atelier Versace Spring Couture 2013 collection, makeup artist Pat McGrath paired a smoky eye with a graphic strip of lime green eyeliner on the inner and outer corners along with glossy lips and flawless skin. Yet another way to rock green, the Pantone Color Of The Year.

OCC Pretty Boy Collection for Fall/Winter 2011

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pretty Boy Collection for Fall/Winter 2011

Who says makeup is only for girls? From David Bowie and Boy George to Adam Lambert, Jared Leto and today’s crop of glam rockers, the impact men have made on the art of makeup is one that still resonates through the present day and boys keep swinging!

Pretty Boy, OCC’s new Fall/Winter 2011 Colour Collection, takes its inspiration from these artists and performers to present a palette created to empower all genders to express themselves with colour.

The creative process began backstage at the Fall/Winter 2011 Collections where the runways were littered with brightly coloured makeup including intense neons and saturated pastels, not typical of what to expect from makeup trends meant for the later months of the year. At BESS NY, under the direction of Makeup Artist Vincent Oquendo, male and female models alike took to the runway in bold neon lips, multi-colored eyes and with some literally covered head-to-toe in glitter. At Eva Minge, Makeup Artist Kristi Matamoros created a look that showcased almost-neon red lips, and at Logan Neitzel, Makeup Artist Victor Henao’s look featured a graphic green/black eye makeup look that made models of both sexes look equally mysterious and androgynous.

OCC’s take on the trend features 6 new intense shades of Lip Tar, alongside new Nail Lacquers, Loose Colours, Pure Pigment powders (a pro favorite!) and Glitter to finish off the look with a bold and dramatic flourish. Available September 6th @ occmakeup.com.

Summer Makeup with Chanel

Summer Makeup with Chanel

You can’t review new products without actually testing them, right? Here’s a look I put together to test out some of the products from Chanel’s summer collection! Reviews/swatches to come 🙂

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base, Chanel Lilium Eyeshadow Quad (beige, chartreuse, blackened green, mauve-taupe), Make Up For Ever #17L Aqua Eyes (chartreuse), Hourglass Film Noir Mascara (black)
  • Face: Ellis Faas SkinVeil (S104), Guerlain Les Violettes Mineral Powder (03)
  • Cheeks: Chanel Bronze Corail Soleil Tan de Chanel (bronze with coral)
  • Lips: Chanel Sari Dore Rouge Coco Lipstick (coral orange), Chanel Pensee Glossimer (sheer coral)
  • Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 222 (fluffy crease brush), 184 (fan brush)

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye with the 249. Apply the chartreuse eyeshadow to the lower half of the lid from inner to outer with the 239, just patting it on. Next, apply the mauve-taupe eyeshadow above the crease with the 222, blending outwards. With the 239, apply the blackened green eyeshadow into the crease with the 239, blending slightly downwards to cover the remaining portion of the lid and softening with the chartreuse eyeshadow. Highlight the brow bone with the beige eyeshadow with the 217. Apply 17L liner on the lower water line, and then smudge the blackened green eyeshadow against the lower lash line with the edge of the 239. Finish by sweeping lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For cheeks, apply Bronze Corail bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Sari Dore lipstick first, then top with Pensee glossimer for a complementing lip.
