How do you coordinate your makeup with your clothes?

How do you coordinate your makeup with your clothes? Do you match? Complement?

I like to match – not necessarily head-to-toe matching, but if I wear a teal eyeshadow in the crease, maybe I’ll wear a teal shirt or teal scarf.

Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.

7 Tried & True Must-Have Products

I’m a sucker for multi-purpose products: pigments, cream and liquid paints, mixing mediums, etc. I like to custom-blend just about everything! Not everyone feels the same way, though, and sometimes, it’s nice to have one product that does a job and does it well. These are some of my tried-and-true favorites from a few different companies (hopefully some that you haven’t heard of before)!

Estée Lauder Pure Color Lipstick | Their Long Lasting Cream finishes are some of the best lipsticks I own. They cover well and feel luxurious on the lips. The BEST ones are almost always limited edition. Favorites in the Permanent Range: Cherry Passion, Melon and Rose Tea.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars | I’m actually not a huge fan of these on the lips, but, OH, the blushes these make! They last forever and blend like a dream (they DO have mint in them though so avoid the eye area). Favorites: Cha-Cha and Divine.

Face Atelier Ultra Sheer | I love these liquid luminizers because you can mix them with foundation, cream blush or bronzer for glowing skin or apply them on their own (I use a fluffy blush brush) for a natural highlighting effect. Favorites: Champagne.

Terra Firma Gel Mineral Matte Finish Bronzer | I use this on myself all the time. It’s highly pigmented (I dilute it with body lotion), long-wearing, won’t rub off on clothes and looks SO amazingly natural – If most bronzers are too orange for you, look no further! (There’s also a shimmering version if you like to twinkle.)

MAC Reflects Glitters | A MAC PRO exclusive (but anyone can buy from MAC PRO). I’ve used these in a multitude of ways: mixing custom lip gloss, over mascara for sparkling lashes, on top of just any eye look, pressed over lipstick for a metallic foil effect, as a face and body highlight, worked into a hairstyle, etc. Not many things are THIS pretty! (Be aware that MAC lists these products as “not for use in the eye area.”) Favorites: Reflects Bronze, Reflects Gold and Reflects Transparent Teal.

MAC Blot Powder and Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish Powder | My two favorite setting powders! Blot Powder by MAC is perfect for mattifying a look without adding any color or texture. Diamond Perfect Finish Powder by Purely Cosmetics is a transparent loose powder that easily outperforms the transparent powders I have from MAC and MUFE (smoother application, better line diffusing AND it doesn’t bounce light back in photography).

Makeup, Hair, & Nails @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

Makeup, Hair, & Nails @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

WOW! The styling at Erickson Beamon was ridiculous–and I mean that in the best way! After seeing a lot of nude/neutral colors and looks at other shows, it’s such a breath of fresh air! I have a ton of photos to go through, so I’ll be updating this post in the next couple of hours with more (and I’m still working on getting a breakdown of what was used for the makeup).

Nonie from Butter London for Beauty.com created pops of color on the nails using a neon orange, chartreuse, magenta (with a little touch of shimmer), and teal. The magenta and teal shades are definitely part of the spring/summer collection but she hasn’t decided whether the other two will come out (I totally voted for chartreuse!). They put a different color on each fingernail and toenail. The backstage area was so cramped, there were Butter London team members sitting on the floor and crunched in some really awkward-looking positions!

PHYTO for Beauty.com was styling the hair, which was sleek and elegant twist around the crown of the head. It was designed to be understated, because the makeup and nails were already so bold and vibrant.

MAC was responsible for the makeup. Chantal Miller, MAC Senior Artist, was the key artist for the makeup look, and she used a lot of PRO products, like Paintsticks, Glitters, and Pigments. The models also wore hand-cut paper lashes, which the models said were odd at first but after a few minutes, they were used to them. Lots and lots of glitter along the brow bone and underneath the eye, as well as a bold lip with more glitter patted on top. It was a superstar team back there; I also spotted Senior Artists Fatima, Romero, and Neil (UK) at work. (Fatima even told me she reads Temptalia, which was totally a “No way!” moment for me.)

Illamasqua Gender Intense Lipgloss Review, Photos, Swatches

Makeup That’s Just Pure FUN!

Illamasqua Gender Intense Lipgloss (£12.50 for 0.2 fl. oz.) is not a wearable shade by any stretch of the imagination. This is a shade that completely embodies the word fun. It’s different; it’s unusual. It’s something to be used for that just-right-occasion, which might be Halloween for some, an avant garde photo-session with your best pals, or lightly patted on over your favorite lipstick to give it a bluish cast.

Gender is a medium blue that leans a little teal–it’s described as a sky blue, but it definitely had this teal edge to it that made me think less sky blue. I could not smile in swatch photos – it just did not look right! I felt like it made a mockery of the shade, so “straight faced” it was.

It’s almost opaque, but it didn’t apply as evenly or as solidly as other Intense shades have in the past. I would probably lay down a concealer/foundation base (or even a blue eyeliner) and then use a lip brush to apply this–I think that would help it look more even. This is a shade that’s only available through Illamasqua; you won’t find it at your local Sephora!
