InStyle.com Virtual Hollywood Makeovers

You HAVE to try out the virtual Hollywood Makeover application at InStyle.com but I’ll warn you from now- it’s a time trap! I had so much fun choosing various hair styles (top to bottom: Reese Witherspoon, Kira Sedgwick, and Anne Hathaway) after I found a shade of red lipstick I liked.

Find a photo of you where your hair is at least somewhat back and is taken head on for best results (finding one where you’re holding a trophy from winning a faux shuffleboard contest- optional).

Try on celebrity hair styles, as well as eye shadow shades, lip colors, even eye liner and different eye colors!

Self Magazine Eyeshadow According to Eye Shape

I’m asked about applying eyeshadow all the time. It seems most women struggle with pretty much every aspect of eyeshadow; color selection, placement, what’s appropriate for day versus nighttime. It’s all just a blur.

My thought is simple, eyeshadow isn’t about colors, it’s about placement. Sure women stick with shades they feel work best with their eye colors and skin tone, but it’s based on opinion and comfort and less about what truly looks good.

Real understanding of eyeshadow application comes when you know the recipe for balance that suits your particular eye shape. It’s basically learning what goes where. Once you know how to make the most of your eyes whether they be small, almond, or hooded (having extra skin that folds over the lid) your routine will be quicker and you’ll be more confident to try new colors and looks.

Self magazine has a fantastic article explaining first how to identify what your eye shape is, then giving tips on where to apply different shades of shadow, and most importantly- why.
