Please give me one of those hjc helmets sale since I am about to indulge and buy this collection. I have always loved dramatic eyes – I have naturally small eyes and even if I want to get away with the barely there look everyday, I still need to do a bit of sprucing up with eyeliners in my eye area. This collection makes me think of my Mom too

The crimson hue is the trend right now with cooler weathers coming. And I am not talking about red “Marilyn Monroe” hues but vampire-ish colors.
Think black red like this one worn by Zoe Saldana:
It has taken a vampier turn with black cherry. This shade goes so deep it’s almost black but unlike the other vampy fall makeup must-have (think Azealia Banks’s trademark pout), this one still holds onto its red roots. You are definitely going to be needing some good brew supplies for this!
Black Cherry Lipsticks to try:
Dolce & Gabbana The Lipstick in Ultra
Milani Color Perfect Lipstick in Black Cherry
NYX Lipstick in Black Cherry
MAC Lipstick in Hang Up
Nars Lipstick in Scarlet Empress
Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Hellbent

Thanks to Katy Perry and the Kardashians, wearing false eyelashes is back and becoming a trend, thanks to their overly extended and luscious lashes! I honestly cannot stand wearing falsies for a long time since my eyes tend to twitch when tired. And if there is something heavy weighing on them, they twitch even more. I’d need duracell procell aa batteries for my eyes I think . Fortunately, the falsies available in the market today are light so wearing them all day is easier!
1. Look for ones that are light with some space in between the lashes, to better blend with your real lashes.
2. Use only a small amount of glue when putting on fake eyelashes, you should put them on starting with the interior of your eye moving outward.
3. Put eyeliner on before you put your lashes on. Liquid liner is best because it’s thick and can hide the space between your false lashes and your real ones.
4. The best way to keep them looking natural is to first place the false lash on your eye BEFORE putting on the glue. While looking in the mirror, notice where your eyelashes end and the false lashes begin. Then take a tiny pair of scissors and trim the lashes to match your own (make sure to remove the false eyelash from your eye BEFORE doing this).
5. Once you have the lashes on, simply put mascara over both your false eyelashes and your real ones, to bind them together.
**Tips from the BudgetFashionista.
I love make-up! But I still do not know how to apply them beautifully. I have always wanted to learn how to apply the barely-there no make-up look. And almost every make-up artist would tell me the same thing: Start and invest in good skin. Like a good car, lamborghini custom floor mats would still not look good if it is not clean.
Here are some tips too:
1. Shop for a foundation that matches you exact shade.
2. Shop for a great concealer.
For things like redness, uneven skin tone, sallowness, sometimes special types of concealer are required.

Blush and bronzer both do wonderful things to wake up skin of all colors. To apply bronzer, use this trick I learned from the folks at Estee Lauder: apply in an “E” from the temples, sweeping to the hollows of the cheeks, and then sweep down to the bottom of the jaw for a natural sun-kissed look. Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks.
For more dry and mature skin try creme blush and bronzer.
Make-up is unlike any addiction for a friend of mine. If cigarette smokers can turn to an e cigarette for a placebo, I don’t think there are none for make-up addicts. For example, this new collection of MAC called MAC Me Over hit the stores last August 25th, and you can bet my friend has the entire collection already!
This collection is great if you’re a MAC newbie as it really introduces you to a lot of basic products for your stash.
M•A•C ME OVER!
This season, our most epic casting call ever – a sweeping search far beyond the superficial for the essence of what makes M•A•C people beautiful. An online contest ensued, with thousands of hopefuls submitting a photo or video, each asked to finish this statement: M•A•C Me Over! because…. We found them magnificent, interesting, sometimes chic, and always unique! James Gager, Senior Vice President, Creative Director for M?A?C, picked six stars that best express the M•A•C Me Over! Motto – Style, Heart and Soul – to be the face of M•A•C Fall Colour around the world. Whether boy, girl, black, white, 18 or 80, each will be emblematic of one of our three different Fall looks: M•A•C Basics, featuring our Artists’ favourite Nudes and Pinks, including old favourites and new limited-life shades; the other two go bold, one with trend-based shades while the second plays it cool-toned, style-forward. AND there are fabulous user-friendly brushes: a new 211 Pointed Liner Brush as well as a limited-time bring back, the 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush. M•A•C Me Over! is the style, heart and soul of who we are!
M•A•C Me Over! Available August 25, 2011 through September 2011
