A Make Up For Ever Holiday | Wine Lips and Sultry Eyes

If you are looking to bring some drama to that holiday or New Year’s party, go bold on the eyes and the lips. It’s not overkill if you can strike that perfect balance. Anisa shows us how to create this look with deep burgundy hues using the Make Up For Ever Studio Case. Read the review she did here!

 

Cover the eye area— from lash line to brow bone— with 530 to act as a base, making blending shadows easier in the coming steps. Sweep 524 onto the eyelid. A light color like this on the lid helps to open the eyes in a dark eye look. 

DSC_0044

Line the waterline and lower lash line with the Artist Liner in M-10.

DSC_0048

Before the liner has time to set, blend it out with 100 and 826. Focus 100 on the outer half of the lower lash line and 826 at the center.DSC_0049

Define the crease and outer corner of the eyelid with 826 to balance some of the darkness created on the lower lash line.

DSC_0056Curl the lashes and apply your favorite mascara.

DSC_0062

Skip blush and lightly contour and highlight the face instead to match the intensity of the eyes.

DSC_0070

Apply a dark plum lip liner and lipstick.

A Make Up For Ever Holiday | A Review

The folks over at Make Up For Ever certainly know beauty. Iconic products with cult followings make up most of their product line so it is no wonder that they came up with some amazing holiday 2014 sets. One of these sets, the Studio Case ($59.50), includes twelve shadows from the brand’s new Artist Shadow line and a full sized Artist Liner in black.

product

The pros:

  • Finding a palette with a good mix of shades is not easy. A lot of products have too many neutrals, too many darks, or too many bright colors but with the Studio Case, you will get a little bit of everything.
  • When buying individual eyeshadows, sticking to your comfort zone is the easiest choice but this sometimes means owning ten of the same shade by accident. Unconventional shades like a beautiful cranberry (D-826) expand your eyeshadow collection and the number of looks you can do.
  • The full sized Artist Liner is a major perk. For liner lovers like myself, this eyeliner is smooth, very black, and does not budge. If eyeliner rarely makes it into your looks, owning a black like this is a great way to branch out and this particular one can be easily blended to look less harsh.
  • The shadow formula is really wonderful. The colors are pigmented, smooth, and blend easily. Even if the palette does not seem like something you would buy, the other shades in the range are taking a look at the next time you find yourself in a Sephora.

 

The cons:

  • There is a serious lack of mattes and the one matte shadow is a base color and is too light for defining. Sure, there are metallic, duochrome, shimmer, and iridescent formulas but those are all just variations of “not matte”.  These “not matte” shadows are great for the holiday season when the emphasis is on glitter everything but less practical for year-round use and creating defined looks for the daytime.
  • The size of the shadows in the palette should also be considered before purchase. Full sized Artist Shadows come with 0.07oz of product but this palette’s pans hold only 0.024oz of product. If you don’t normally wear eyeshadow this will not be a problem but be warned, if you purchase the palette and fall in love with a particular shade, you will run out of it very quickly.
  • While the idea of a sturdy outer box is nice and looks great as a gift, it is not practical. A lot of unnecessary space around each shadow means that the box is much bigger than it needs to be. The palette isn’t great for travel because of this but at least there is a decent sized mirror.

CU Closets: Dylan Cooper

CU Closets is back!

JTS/GS ’18 student Sarah Belz gives Hoot a sneak peek into Columbia students’ wardrobes.

 

Name: Dylan Cooper

School: CC 2018

Major: Neuroscience & Behavior/ Pre-Med

 

IMG_1415

Dylan defines his style as “All-American.” He enjoys sporting the preppy look, which he believes will always remain trendy. At the same time, Dylan loves to go bold.

“My father told me you ‘got to play the part.'” So if he is playing ball or hitting the gym, that means he is wearing his Adidas or Nike’s latest sportswear. But if he is going to class, he likes to be seen in his bright colored skinny pants topped with a printed shirt.

“We have a family policy not to purchase any full-priced clothes, so everything I own was bought on sale,” he added.

IMG_1407

 

Favorite Fall Outfit:

Vineyard Vines breaker pants or black skinny jeans, topped with either a Lacoste or Brooks Brothers polo with a cardigan.

He likes wearing a bright color pant with a darker top because it makes for a good outfit during this transitional period.

 

IMG_1427
 

Favorite Shoes:

Dylan reps his Memphis, Tennessee roots by bringing out the Blue Suede Shoes.

“To Boot New York has a great selection of kicks, especially the Medford collection, and if they’re not doing the trick, you can always lace ‘em up with bright colors. I know Johnston and Murphy has inexpensive, fun laces that can brighten up any shoe.”

 

IMG_1404

Go-To Outfit:

“I wear a Pokémon-based yarmulke that has my name on it, a warm smile, a Bonobos Poplin cotton casual shirt, a Vineyard Vines whale belt, Façonnable pants, beige socks, and my To Boot blue suede shoes. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

 

IMG_1418

Most Outrageous Outfit:

“[That] has got to be these Club Monaco graphite pants with a heart print that my girlfriend got for me. I wore them on a date to Times Square, and I’ve never gotten so many looks in my life – people left and right were asking me where I got them from… I haven’t worn them since, but I must admit they were a great gift.”

 

Untitled

Most Unique Fashion Collection:

As an Orthodox Jew, Dylan also has a unique yarmulke collection.

“I’m wearing one all day every day – I see that not as a bore, rather as an opportunity.”

Dylan uses his yarmulkes to bring out his inner child. His yarmulkes include characters from childhood hit series, including but not limited to, Pokemon, Sesame Street, Mickey Mouse, Rugrats, and Thomas & Friends.
