Rihanna NYFW inspired Makeup




So Rihanna stepped out at this year's New York Fashion Week at an afterparty rocking some fierce blue lips. It was such a cool-as-a-cucumber, edgy look that I knew I just had to do my spin on this. I personally love the blue lips and feel this makes the look unique, but if blue lips aren't your thing, they can easily be replaced with a vampy deep burgundy for a fall, or even a nude color.

Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams Makeup



Taylor Swift released a new music video called Wildest Dreams, which channels English Patient vibes - you know, the movie? Some people have criticised the video for apparently being racist - um, really? Wow, is there nothing else the world can get upset about than over a silly music video? Let's see, Syria, refugees situation all over the world, female genital mutilation...

Anyway I'm getting a little off topic here, but - her makeup was flawless. She definitely has that old-Hollywood glamor look down pat. Here's my recreation of the look, check out my full Youtube video below for the step-by-step tutorial!
