If you think the smokey eye is just made for black eye shadow, think again! Last night’s Met costume gala called for some stand out eye looks and with a theme like Punk:Chaos to Couture it’s not hard to see why all the makeup looks were so bold. Kristen Stewart’s makeup artist used a Cranberry Red with Black kohl pencil to define around the eyes while Elle Fanning went all out with a colorful winged eye shadow blended up to the brows.
Which eye shadow colors will you be rocking this Summer?
Are you trying to get a spring time glow without using the tanning booth? Many people use self tanner and look great from doing so!
There are certain things you can do, though, to make your self-tan come out as well as possible. Follow these rules to look your best:
- Do everything else first – like shaving and getting a manicure
- Be sure that you’re 100% dry from your shower before applying self tanner
- Work from the bottom up for best results
- Wait extra time for it to dry and then after rub baby powder on yourself to avoid it transferring to your clothing

If you’re looking for a hot new hairstyle to try out this spring, look no further! We have one, brought to you by Dolce & Gabbana, nonetheless.
A Sicilian Twist is a simple style that keeps your hair back and away from your face, creating a chic and simple, convenient look. The most striking part about this style, though, is the scarf tied around your head, totally making the look! It’s all about the scarf!
You can dry this look by blow drying your hair straight back, twisting your hair into what seems to be a French twist but then looping it under, causing the hair to fan across your head. Then, tie on the scarf, and you’re good to go, looking better than ever!

Have you tried a matte mani yet?
We are starting to see them all over, and we think that they are a great trend for spring!
With bright colors, matte can be a great way to do something different with your nails that deviates from the normal, glossy mani that you usually get at the salon.
You can even wear this look with a french manicure feel with matte in the body of the nail and shine at the top. What a cool look!
This is a super trendy beauty look that you’ll be happy you tried!

Lets face it the summer heat and humidity does NOT do good things for our hair. Luckily there are some hot trends that allow us to get the hair out of our face and off of our backs this summer.
Try a sleek pony tail. This look is so simple yet so classic. In our opinion the higher pony tail the better. If you don’t want just a regular pony tail try curling the pony tail with your curling iron!
Fish tail braids are so in! The care free look is perfect for summer…and there is no need to have the perfect fish tail braid because the messy look is definitely in.
Try a nice top-knot bun. Let everyone see that pretty face of yours! Just twist it up and you are ready for a night on the town. This is a great day to night look.
Bored with your hair? We can all relate to this…but a great way to spice up your look is to add a little bit of color to your do! This creates a care free summer look. However, no permanent dye is necessary! You can achieve this look without actually dying your hair! The secret is hair chalk, this can be found at most beauty supply shops. The best part is the chalk comes in a variety of colors so you don’t have to choose to just one! Now you don’t have to worry about damaging your hair with dye, and you can wash it out whenever you please. You can apply the chalk to the ends of your hair or to your whole head if you want….the decision is yours!
