6 Ways to Transform the Usual Smoky Eye

One of the easiest ways to glam up any look  is with a great smoky eye. Consider stepping outside of the box this holiday season and try one of these unique looks below to transform the usual smoky eye into a show stopping look.

Emerald Smoky Eyes

Instead of making a statement with the usual red lip, make one with a bold smoky eye, but in green. The perfect green eyeshadow paired with volume lashes will make any holiday look pop, just as we see below on actress and singer, Lucy Hale.

Smoky Wings

Bringing the smoky shadow out along the corners of each eyelid gives an even more dramatic, smokier look with a sultry wing effect, which is sure to take your holiday glam game up a notch! Just see how fabulous this look is on model, Bella Hadid.

Subtly Smoky

Because sometimes less IS more, we love the idea of a subtle smoky eye, as seen below on Eiza González. A faint eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer is the way to go to achieve this elegant look.

Smoky Gold

A gilded smoky eye never looked so good, just as we see below on Nicole Richie who completed her look with classic, full lashes. Try ‘going for the gold’ this season and select a shadow with a shimmery gold tone and try this look for yourself!

Smoke ‘n Glitter

A smoky eye should never be limited to only dark gray shades, but can work beautifully when glittery, warm tones are used. Just see how fabulous Emma Stone’s eyes look! We also really love how the smoky look was not just applied to her top lid, but also underneath along her lower lash line for an even more sultry look. #bowchicawowwow

Blue Smoky Eyes

Try taking the usual smoky eye up a notch by accenting the look with a pop of blue in the inner corners, just as Kelly Rowland did. Then of course, her lashes complete the look with the perfect amount of length and curl.

Best Beauty Looks from the AMA’s (And How You…

If you watched the American Music Awards last week, then you not only saw some impressive performances and fashion statements, but you also saw some flawless makeup and gorgeous lashes. We loved many of the super glamorous looks we saw and we’re sharing some of the best beauty looks from the AMA’s with you, plus how YOU can get the same looks . . . you’re welcome!


Taylor Swift

(image via byrdie.com)

Taylor’s Look:

  • Metallic eye shadow
  • Winged eyeliner
  • Feathery lashes
  • A soft nude lip

Get Her Look:

  • For the eye shadow, we love the sultry shadow palette from Sephora which includes a silver metallic shade like Taylor wore, plus 13 more shades.
  • To get that perfect winged liner look, Maybelline‘s felt-tip liquid eyeliner glides on smooth for precise control.
  • For the lashes, a full set of Volume Lash Extensions will have your lashes looking just like Taylor’s!
  • Then for the lips, NARS Honolulu Honey is the perfect blend of natural beige with a satin finish. 

Ciara

Ciara’s Look:

  • Gold, shimmery eyes
  • Lifted lashes
  • Nude glossed lips

Get Her Look:

  • Bobbi Brown’s shimmer wash eye shadow in ‘champagne’ is the perfect shade to highlight and illuminate the eyes like we see on Ciara.
  • Her lashes looked beautifully natural with a lovely lift and curl. You can get this same classic look with a simple Lash Lift Perm which will define and curl your lashes seamlessly in one treatment. (Note: A lash lift perm is not available in New Jersey.)
  • Try Lancome’s L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in Beige Aura to add the same nude glossy look to your lips.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa’s Look:

  • Nude matte lip
  • Full, flared lashes
  • Arched brows

Get Her Look:

  • To get lips like Vanessa, try this matte lipstick from Ulta by Anastasia Beverly Hills and go for the color, Soft Touch.
  • Recreate her lash look by getting a full set of our Volume Lash Extensions. Volume lashes offer incredible fullness with 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions applied to 1 natural eyelash.
  • To get your brows looking like Vanessa’s, get them threaded. Eyebrow threading is an innovative option for brow shaping and hair removal. It also has many benefits over waxing and plucking and can give you this same sexy arched look.

Jennifer Lopez

(image via byrdie.com)

Jennifer’s Look:

  • Contoured face
  • Super dark, warm smokey eyes
  • Volume lashes

Get Her Look:

  • To conquer this contoured look, try the ‘Step-by-Step Contour Kit’ by Smashbox.
  • Get the same sultry smokey eye with warm tones by using the Makeup Atelier Eye Shadow Palette by Beautylish.
  • A full set of Volume Eyelash Extensions will complete the look and have you looking just as fab as JLo herself!

Dua Lipa

(image via theskincareedit.com)

Dua’s Look:

  • Shades of brown on her lips and eyes
  • Full lashes on the top and bottom
  • Bold brows (that are noticeably a perfect match to her hair color.)

Get Her Look:

  • Brown shades are all the rage this season and you can get this same edgy yet feminine look on your lips with Yves Saint Laurent’s ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick with shade 53 Beige Promenade from Sephora. Continue the brown tones on the eyes by using a bronze shade like MAC’s Charcoal Brown eye shadow.
  • A full lash line on the top AND bottom can be achieved by getting Lash Extensions -and yes, you can even get lash extensions on your lower lid. This will open up your eyes and brighten your face even more than just having lash extensions on the top!
  • For the same bold brow look as Dua, get a simple brow tint. This service is ideal for those who want to darken their brows or simply give them a bolder look. And it also saves you the hassle of filling in your brows – which is a huge time saver! (Note: Lash tinting is available at many Lash Lounge locations, but not in the following states: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or California.)

5 Eye Makeup Looks We’re Ready to Try This…

Fall is right around the corner and we’re ready for all of the stylish trends the season brings, including these 5 eye makeup looks! From warm toned hues to pretty pops of color, we can’t wait to try each one of these trends.

Copper Eyes

Bring autumnal tones to your eyes with orange-red hues around your lash line. Priyanka Chopra only recently showed off her pre-wedded bliss, but with this look, she was glowing long before Nick Jonas popped the question. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Blue Eyeliner

“Swap your basic black eyeliner and even shadow for eye-brightening blues, from cobalt to cerulean,” says Good Housekeeping’s Beauty Director April Franzino. “Make it less ’80s by blending a thin line of blue above your regular black on top lids or wearing a sheer wash of slate up to your crease only.” Copy Lupita Nyong’o’s BAFTA Awards look with a bold red lip, or go light on lip and cheek colors to keep things balanced and wearable. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Voluminous Lower Lashes

There’s some ’60s flair in Tracee Ellis Ross’s Oscars makeup. Her dramatic lashes go perfectly with another fall favorite: a classic red lip. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Smudged Liner

If you find that your pencil liner gets a little smudgy by the middle of the day, don’t wipe it off — just mimic Emmy Rossum and embrace it, because this ’90s grunge look is trending like crazy. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Two-Tone Eyeshadow

One of the boldest red carpet eye makeup looks in recent memory was when Scarlett Johansson stepped out at the Avengers premiere. Pick two shadows in your go-to palette and combine them by applying one hue all around your eye, and create a smoky eye effect on top with the other. (via goodhousekeeping.com)

Meghan Markle’s Big Day Beauty Look and How to…

There was so much to be in awe of over the weekend when it came to the Royal Wedding, but our number one awe inspiring moment was when we first saw the bride. Meghan Markle stayed true to her sense of style keeping her big day look classic, modern and not overdone. Same went for her makeup and since it’s officially wedding season, we’re breaking down her big day beauty look and how you can get the same look for your big day – or simply everyday!

One guess what our favorite part of her look was . . . her lashes and brows, of course!

FACE

Her Look: Gorgeous and glowing, the bride went for a natural look when it came to her face. She’s all about letting her freckles show, therefor she didn’t try to cover them up. While she skipped the heavy foundation, her makeup artist for the wedding (Daniel Martin) did add a bit of concealer under her eye.

Get The Look: Meghan’s said she’s a fan of super-light foundations (again, so her freckles can show through). To get there, Meghan’s pre-engagement makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, says she would reach for Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 6.25 with a few drops of 5.5. Bounced on with a slightly wet Beautyblender, it gives light, dewy coverage. (via glamour.com)

EYES + LASHES

The Look: Her eyes were the main beauty feature as she wore smoky gray eyeshadow and her lashes were bold with the most lovely full and fluttery appearance.

Get The Look:  Rather than overdoing the eyeliner, Meghan tends to play up her lashes. The best way to get this lovely look is to get Volume Lash Extensions! The fullness, length, curl and deep, natural color and overall look is just the ticket to having royally gorgeous lashes.

For eyeliners, her two favorites are M.A.C. Teddy, a gorgeous, gold-flecked brown, and Chanel Eyeliner in Cassis, a shimmery plum that she draws on her upper lash line and water line. (via glamour.com)

LIPS

The Look: Her lips were painted a peachy pale pink shade of lipstick that had a satin finish. (via hapersbazaar.com)

Get The Look: The word on the street is that Markle’s a fan of Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria ($34), a matte, dusty rose-tinted nude that seems polished enough even for the halls of Buckingham Palace or, say, the queen’s personal tea room. Not only does the pink tone give it some warmth—a nonnegotiable when you’re dealing with nude shades—but the matte finish makes it feel more modern than your average neutral lipstick. Also worth noting: Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is one of the best-known Brits in her field, so Markle’s choice could be a sly nod to her new country. (via glamour.com)

BROWS

The Look: Not overly bold but still quite beautiful, her brows were striking, defined and filled-in to anchor her face.

Get The Look: Sherrille Riley is responsible for Meghan’s brows and told metro.co.uk how she created the perfect brow style for her, which she refers to as the ‘Audrey Hepburn Brow’. The style is to keep the brows as straight as possible with a gradual lift at the tail ends and the style is completely arch-less and in-line with the natural brow. It’s a really modern twist on the iconic brow shape that Audrey was famous for. This effortless shape lifts the face and harmonises the features. Threading is one of the methods Riley uses to achieve this classic brow look on Meghan.

Our Favorite Beauty Looks from the 2018 Met Gala

From glowing complexions, picture perfect lips and stunning lashes and brows – we’re still swooning over these looks from the 2018 Met Gala last week! See below for some of our favorite looks from this star studded event.


Kerry Washington

The Scandal actor brought va-va-volume to the red carpet with soft, brushed-out curls, courtesy of hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. While Washington’s hair was still wet, the hairstylist diffused it (using the GHD Air Diffuser) to add volume and a whole lot of texture. Once dry, Sturdivant-Drew used the Tangle Teezer to loosen up curls — and then teased the roots to the, ahem, heavens. (via allure.com)


Kate Bosworth

With her fresh and flawless makeup, Kate Bosworth looked as though she stepped straight out of a painting. She opted for rosy cheeks and coordinating lipstick. Bosworth’s ethereal makeup left her skin glowing. (via theinsider.com)


Jennifer Lopez

J Lo did what J Lo does: slayed the red carpet in her signature cocktail of bronzer, lashes, and glossy lips. We love how she ditched the hair extensions for an impressively sleek lob. (via popsugar.com)


Amal Clooney

Sure, shimmery eyes, cherry-red lips, and a tousled pony are basically Clooney’s beauty M.O. at this point, but we’d be lying if we said she didn’t pull off the Charlotte Tilbury-designed look — again. (via allure.com)


Kate Upton

Kate paired her multicolored jeweled headpiece with a simple makeup look that included nude lipstick and bold brows. (via popsugar.com)


Kendall Jenner

Kendall paired her uber straight ponytail with a dark gray smoky eye. (Via popsugar.com)


Priyanka Chopra

“Fierce” is truly the only word that comes to mind when describing Chopra’s look — the gold-cascading headpiece, the deep-red lip, and the equally bold brows. (via allure.com)


Ariana Grande

A precise flick of eyeliner enhanced Ariana Grande’s makeup look. The inner corners of her eye were dusted with a shimmery shadow. She kept her lips natural with a light lipstick that matched her gigantic hair bow. (via theinsider.com)

4 Famous Mother-Daughter Duos and Their Beauty Tips

Mother’s Day is right around the corner which got us thinking about some famous Mother-Daughter duos. Check out these lovely ladies and a few beauty tips they swear by.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

(image via allure.com)

Always smiling and exuding joy, Goldie and Kate are clearly best friends and share an amazing relationship. Kate has followed in her mother’s famous footsteps and off the big screen, she also shares her mother’s love for life, as well as her healthy, active lifestyle.

Goldie & Kate’s Beauty Tips: When it comes to beauty, it’s apparent that great genes run in the family, but in a joint interview with Allure in 2013, Kate was asked what beaut secrets she learned from her Mom, and said “I think it’s more the stuff we eat. Like green juice—mom’s been drinking green juice forever. And taking teaspoons of olive oil. We love products and we have fun with products, but in terms of the real stuff that I’ve learned from mom, it’s her lifestyle. She was always healthy and active and drinking something green.”


Tina & Beyonce Knowles

(image via popsugar.com)

Tina Knowles has always been known as a strong, confident woman – and clearly she passed that on to her daughter. Beyoncé and her mom have a strong bond and also share a love for beauty and cosmetics. Beyoncé grew up going to her mother’s salon in Houston, where she saw and learned a great deal. Fast forward to 2010, Tina collaborated with Beyoncé to open the Beyoncé Cosmetology Center at the Phoenix House in Brooklyn.

Tina’s Beauty Tip: Undergarments are the foundation to looking great. A good bra, Spanx, or some tummy-control panties to smooth out the lines are really important. (source: cosmopolitan.com)

Beyoncés Beauty Tip: “My best beauty advice came from my mother. She always says that outer beauty fades and inner beauty has a lasting effect. She also told me to wash my makeup off before going to bed. I don’t always, but I’m trying!” (Source: ogleschool.edu)


Michelle and Chynna Phillips

(image via instyle.com)

This pair not only share beautiful features, but also beautiful voices and success in two well known music groups. Michelle was in the group The Mamas & The Papas in the 60’s and Chynna was (and still is) with the popular 90’s group, Wilson Phillips. Both women have taken great pride in taking care of themselves and Chynna has watched and learned from her mother over the years.

Michelle’s Beauty Tip: “Wash your face with soap every morning, with a mild cleanser and rinse it with the same soapy water 30 times.” She also shared, ” I always use moisturizer. And I always use L’Oreal. And here’s the big reason why I use it. I use it because I can buy it at my supermarket! A moisturizer with a sun block, and at night you use a moisturizer without sun block.” (source: knotslanding.net)

Chynna’s Beauty Tip: In an interview with Carol Au Courant, Chynna shared her top 4 natural beauty tips: “Get 10 hours of sleep each night. Use a mask – any mask – once per week on your face.  Never pop a zit.  And stay away from too much sugar, dairy, white flour, and anything processed.”


Tracee Ellis Ross and Diana Ross

(image via popsugar.com)

Where do we begin with this mother/daughter duo? While Diana is a tough act to follow, her daughter Tracee has paved her own way in the entertainment industry. This is another pair that clearly share amazing genes, however Tracee had a great teacher in her mother and learned how to care for herself.

Diana’s Beauty Tip: “My ‘quick makeups’ are jumbo eye pencils, really black black pencils, and mascara, maybe blusher and a light lip gloss, something nice for the day.” (source: vogue.com)

Tracee’s Beauty Tip: “I’m really big on hydration, you gotta drink the water so there’s hydration on the inside and the outside.” When it comes to moisturizing, Tracee has a unique method and recommends “spanking” your moisturizer into your face, by tapping lightly on your skin while the moisture sinks in.
