Suva Beauty Eyeshadow Palette

SUVA_Eyeshadow

My latest obsession is the Suva Beauty¬†eyeshadow palette by Vancouver makeup artist and friend Shaina Azad.

In contrast to New York, London is known for it’s edgier more hard hitting street style both on and off the runway. The make up for Spring Summer 2010 was not really about looking tan and perfect but more about creating a statement.¬†

Red Hot Lips

Red Hot Lips

Red lips are everywhere! It seems like every beauty ad, tv show and award show are featuring women wearing red lipstick. With all of the 80’s trends that are so hot right now, the red lips make total sense. I don’t know if it’s because red is on my radar,

The Bright 80's

The Bright 80's
