BeautyEye Brightening Tutorial

If your eyes ever need that extra perk, try this simple how-to. It’s perfect for any eye color, and lets you showcase the brighter side of your lipstick collection as well!

How to Brighten Eyes in 4 Easy Steps:

1. Start by applying Pixi Eye Bright Primer over entire lid, followed by a dab of neutral shimmer under the eye (we used the Pixi Eye Bright Kit No.2). Next we applied Milani Powder Eye Shadow in French Vanilla over the entire lid.

2. Line the upper lid with a white cream shadow or liner like Milani Shadow Eyez in Winter White, making sure you travel all the way to the inner corner of the eye. Start from the inner corner and line the under lid as well.

3. Just in the outer crease of the lid add a little depth with a neutral eye shadow like Urban Decay’s Toasted, and blend.

4. Highlight your brow with a white powdered eye shadow like Milani’s White Lie or Ka’oir Milky Way Light Beige Eye Shadow. Finish with a thin black cat-eye (upper lid only) and black mascara top and bottom!


ArtKaleidoscopic Eden: Illustration by Artist Bozka

 
Living and working in Warsaw, Poland, artist Bozka (short for Bozena Rydlewska) uses a masterful technique that combines both digital drawing and handmade collage elements to illustrate beautiful, botanically based imagery. Bold colors play out into even bolder scenes, capturing a kaleidoscopic Eden, and a gathering place for the super-natural world.
 

FashionFilm to Fashion: Clueless


Whether they’ve got their driver’s permit or not, the wheels of fashion will keep turning, and it’s no surprise that ’90s styles have been appearing both on and off the runways. Turning sweet seventeen this year, our favorite fashionable film,
Clueless, is forever our inspiration with its ultra-girlyness, and cute, preppy-vibe. From matching tweeds to be-dazzled sweaters, we think Cher and Dionne would have their hands all over this style board!

ArtPattern Play: the Art of Rachel Kaye

 

 Introducing San Francisco-based artist, Rachel Kaye!
 
Pictured above and below are two of Rachel’s geometric glitter sculptures. Rachel gathers inspiration from fashion designers and textile design, inventing rhythmic patterns that completely colonize her 2D and 3D surfaces.
 
Her glitter sculptures are so wildly surfaced that upon first glance you may not notice the carefully constructed silhouettes of the irregular columns. Beautiful!
