Makeup looks that Last

It’s raining, it’s pouring, your eyeliner’s running. 

Wait, scratch that. Your eyeliner isn’t going anywhere! After all, what’s the point of mastering a reverse cat-eye if it’s just going to smear into a raccoon eye? 

Makeup artist Janessa Paré created these ultra-gorgeous beauty looks that’ll keep you looking beautiful and on trend … come rain or shine!

LastingMakeup-SpringMetallics

Spring Metallics

To take the metallic trend into the warmer months, look for bronzed hues reminiscent of fading sunlight. The key to this eye makeup is layering. Paré used a taupe metallic shade as a base, put a darker more golden shadow over it then dabbed a lighter metallic yellow shadow right in the center of the lids . “Use a black liner on the outer corners of your eyes in a ‘V’ shape. “This will make your eyes look lighter and brighter.” The shape created is reminiscent of an exaggerated cat-eye, giving a nod to the eyeshadow shape of the season.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe, $6.56, available at Drugstore.comSonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Creme, $8.99, available at TargetBuxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Poodle, $18, available at Sephora.

Terra New York Lafayette 2 Cape, $345, available at Terra New York

LastingMakeup-TrueBlue

True Blue

The currently trending blue-eyeshadow look is a solid, graphic shape of pure, even color. To create it Paré used a cream eyeliner and painted the shape with an angled eyeshadow brush. Follow along the natural contour of your eye to create the petal shape of color. If you like this eyeshadow shape but are worried about such a dense pop of color, Paré says you can swap it out for a neutral hue. However, I recommend you go for the maximum impact!

Sephora Collection Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Electric Teal, $5, available at Sephora

Vera Jane Jacket, $220.80, available at Joie and Old Navy raincoat.

LastingMakeup-ReverseCatEye

Reverse Cat-Eye 

Lower-lid makeup is particularly vulnerable to smudging, but this reverse cat-eye isn’t going anywhere. To create a smoldering, edgy look, Paré used an eggplant-colored pencil, drawing elongated shape along the lower lashes, then used black pencil on the lower waterline to create depth. She finished the look by piling a ton of mascara on the top lashes. “Since there’s no liner on top, the mascara balances the look out,” she says. “For a more playful feel, you can add some colorful eyeshadow to the upper lid.”

Tarte Smolder Eyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Fig, $22; Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow, $23, available at Sephora; bareMinerals Flawless  Waterproof Mascara in Black $18, available at Ulta.

ASOS Clear Rain Trench $56.44, available at ASOS.

LastingMakeup-LipsOnFire

Lips on Fire

The orange lipstick trend is going strong. For a bold look that’s not too severe, go for soft edges. “After you apply the lipstick, wipe the edge of you lips with a tissue to blur it out,” she says. Dab on cheek stain to continue the soft-focus vibe – you can even mix a little with concealer to sheer it out. To complement the orange lip, Paré smudged a white eyeliner on the whole lid, just past the crease, and drew a line on the lower lid as well. She topped off the eye with an espresso mascara, noting, “This will tie the lip in with the eye. The white is a cool tone, but the lipstick is warm, so the warm-toned mascara connects the whole look.”

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 17 Bright Orange, $24, available at Sephora; Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Stain in Liquid Kiss, $22.50, available at DermStoreNyx Cosmetics Waterproof Eye Liner in White MPE01, $4.49, available at CVSL’Oréal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Black Brown, $7.29.

Fall’s Favorite Color: Wine

The season’s changing colors bring certain hues to mind…and the one that tops the list every Fall is rich shades of wine. But don’t worry: you don’t have to commit to one color. There are plenty of varietals—from dusky roses to deep burgundies—that perfectly mix and match.

wine-CateBlanchett

As with wine, often the simplest versions are the most rewarding.  The same can be said about the minimal Gucci Silk Cady Long Sleeve Dress Cate Blanchett chose.

Wine-OliviaPalermo

Olivia Palermo’s fashion month looks were pretty spectacular, and this faded cherry ensemble was no exception. She paired a Reiss Jacket and Leather Leggings in Cognac to create a modern take on the matching suit.

wine-AshleyMadekwe

You don’t have to retire your colorful moto jacket for the season. Ashley Madekwe paired a pale pink Mural Tough Girl Faux Leather Moto Jacket with Leith’s Long Sleeve Knit Midi Dress in Mahogany and Manolo Blahnik’s Taylor d’Orsay Pumps for a perfectly on-point look.

wine-VictoriaBeckham

There’s perhaps no better way to show your love and affection for this trend than Burberry’s Heart Print Shirt that Victoria Beckham wore.

wine-KiernanShipka

Actress Kiernan Shipka made a splash in her Delpozo Ruffle Skirt Dress at a Maybelline soiree. The combination of bordeaux and peach make for a delightfully sweet blend.

Are you Wearing this Fall Favorite?

XOXO

This summer, the tangerine makeup craze is hotter than ever! Take a cue from these celebs and rock the orange crush color on lips, nails, and cheeks.

orange-khloe-kardashianKhloe Kardashian
The reality star glowed in shimmery, gold-toned tangerine lips and cheeks – a subtle way to serve sun-kissed freshness (less obvious than bronze overload).

orange-emma-stoneEmma Stone
The star brightened her complexion with a pop of barely-there coral blush – an instant lusty, luminous boost for all skin tones.

orange-julianne-houghJulianne Hough
A pop of bright orange lipstick can take any look from cute to downright sexy (especially when paired with bare shoulders).
