Beauty Breakdown: Gucci S/S ’14

The Italians were “lashing” out during Milan Fashion Week with beauty looks heavily focused on the eyes. I’m a sucker for a sixties makeup look so it came as no surprise that Pat McGrath caught my eye with her rendition of a sixties eye over at Gucci for their Fall ’14 show.


Here’s What You’ll Need:

  1. Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer,$20.
  2. MAC EyeShadow in White Frost,$15.
  3. Urban Decay Naked2 Palette,$52.
  4. Kevyn Aucoin Precision Liquid Liner,$34. 
  5. Estēe Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx,$22.
  6. Eylure Upper and Lower Lash Set – Choppy,$11.  
  7. Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler,$21.
  8. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Vanilla,$28.
  9. Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ,$30. 

Here’s What You Do:

  1. Prep the eyes with primer to achieve a longer lasting look
  2. Brush the off-white shadow over the eyes
  3. Sweep the gray-brown shade along the crease, dragging it past the outer corner
  4. Define the upper and lower lash lines with a combination of the black liquid + pencil liner
  5. Trace the waterline with the beige shadow stick to open up the eyes
  6. Brush mascara onto the lashes
  7. Apply falsies to the top and bottom lashes
  8. Add a little more liner to conceal lash bands
  9. Curl the lashes
  10. Complete the look with a spritz of setting spray to hold your makeup in place all day long

Voilà!

The orange lip is one of the most talked about beauty trends of the season. It has been up and down runways and featured in many magazines on women of all skin tones and still manages to look amazing! Which is all the more reason why orange happens to be the new the red of the season.

Why you ask? Because it’s new, fresh, and unmistakably BOLD! With that being said I know just like finding the perfect red can be a bit challenging and even scary, but after watching the video featuring one of the Nars leading stylist, Uzo you will be able to wear an orange lip with you head held high all season long.
