Gypsy-Goth Glory of Helena Bonham Carter

October 8th // 1 Comment

You have to love the fact that actress Helena Bonham Carter, wife of director Tim Burton and one of the most gorgeous women in the world, isn’t afraid of hurling on a battered crinoline and dangling a fairy-castle handbag from her arm. Still, as Russell Brand would say, this sort of hairstyle needs to be contextualized by fame.

Is any of this working for you? I’m voting for her makeup and the shoes.

Helena Bonham Carter

Love,

Steal this Look: Rihanna’s Liquid Purple Lips

October 8th // Comment Here

Rihanna’s glossy purple lips are the perfect counterpoint to an all black look for night.  Her lips are darkly seductive with just enough shine to make the whole look feel, well, pretty.

The best part…it couldn’t be simpler to do yourself!

Step 1: Start with Motives Rich Formula Lipstick in Vamp. Using a lipstick first is necessary for making the color last. Be sure to go a bit darker around the outside of your lips to keep the gloss you apply next from bleeding.

Step 2: Use Motives Full Color Lip Shine in Tease on top. A thin layer is enough to give you plenty of shine for hours and the subtle pink hue will give the dark purple a light sheen.

It’s as easy as that!

Lots of love,
