Latest Crazy Beauty Thing: Makeup Depicting Scenes From Disney Movies
Continuing with our crazy beauty trends kick, here's some insane eye and lip art from make-up artist Katie Alves. The girl can do with make-up what most people can barely do with paint, let alone on a tiny patch of fragile skin. The Disney themed eyelids are particularly amazing, although it's tough to decide which is cooler--an Alice in Wonderland panorama, or leopard winged eyeliner? She's even worked a little wordplay in there (think literal fish lips). Our minds are sufficiently blown. One possible problem: With this kind of art it might be difficult to display it and, you know, open your eyes at the same time. We're disregarding that minor detail; can we commission her for next Halloween?
Check the slideshow of some of Alves most intricate work. Tell us, which is your favorite? And would you wear anything like this?
La Prairie, purveyor of very covetable skin care, also has a color makeup line, which not a lot of people realize. As you would expect from the luxury brand, the color line is upscale and posh. You won't see yellow eye shadow here.
To help raise awareness of the brand’s makeup collection, La Prairie partnered with makeup artist and founder of Cheek to Chic, Raychel Wade. Raychel created her first (of hopefully many--a holiday collection is already in the works) collection for the brand, called Bouquet de Jardin, which was inspired by peonies.
The collection is saturated and gorgeous, yet is formulated to work on a lot of skin tones. It includes two cream blushes which contain vitamins and chamomile, a hybrid kohl eye pencil in a perfect shade of bronze, a rosy quartz eye shadow quad, and a pink lip definer.
Raychel sat down with us to share some helpful tips for how to manage your makeup bag and what tricks to use for summer makeup application:
It's December, and that means one thing: You can now indulge in all the Christmas music listening that you want, and you are free to abuse glittery eye shadows to your heart's content. It's the holidays!
The holiday makeup collections are always our favorites, because of the sheer fantasy of it all. Forget about sedate neutrals--go metallic and smoky and red and fuchsia. And this season's offerings are truly stellar. We picked through all the collections and chose our favorite pieces, which was no easy feat.
