Last week we launched the Full Spectrum Lookbook, our hottest and brightest yet
Now, lets get closer for a bit of insight on how we came up with this look.
For the makeup, we were greatly inspired by the beauty shots at Marc Jacob‘s Spring 2011 Ready-To-Wear show. At a first glance we thought it was just a really good smokey eye. However, after a second look we discovered that it was the use of a green shadow within the smokey eye that was doing all the tricks.

To create our own look, similar to this, our makeup artist went a bit lighter on the eyes by playing up the reflective qualities in the eye shadow. She also decided to go brighter in the lips, with a fuchsia infused plum color. Remember as well, that for full lashes any of the false eye lashes at your local drugstore will work wonder in seconds!
Here are a few extra close up shots of the adorable clutches from the lookbook. I couldn’t resist highlighting these for you guys because they are a few of my favorites on LuLu*s right now. Notice how intricate and unique the hardware is on these purses, something that you don’t find on just any ol’ purse!
See, it wasn’t that hard to turn a runway look into a fantastic going out look!
What are your favortie dramatic makeup effects?
Last week, we launched our spring 2011 lookbook, Gypsy Caravan, and I thought it was about time to give you all a peek from the other side of the lens at one of our shoots.
Below is the behind the scenes video featuring Forget That You’re Young, the new single from The Raveonettes’ forthcoming Raven In the Grave.
In addition to the video, I also wanted to give you some photographic treats. On every shoot, I bring some of my own cameras to take pictures not only for my own personal benefit, but for you ladies as well. This time I brought my new Fuji-roid, the Instanx 210, and the pictures that came out were amazing — take a look!
This is a location that is very close to the LuLu*s warehouse! Isn’t Chico, California, beautiful?
