Prada FW 14 Backstage

Femme Boy: Fresh skin and tons of mascara, so femme. ;-) Prada really channeled a modernized “Twiggy” look for their most recent show. A lot less effort, more wearable for daytime, but still wide eyed and youthful. To get a look like this, layer on your mascara with a slightly heavier hand. Go with two separate mascaras to create a thick, slightly clumped look.  Put on the voulminizing mascara first, heavy on the lash line and follow with a mascara designed to lengthen with a more precise wand. 

Femme Fetches:

  • Dior Show Blackout
  • Benefit They’re Real
  • Maybelline Big Eyes- comes with two wands and much more affordable
  •  Calvin Klein CK ONE Mascara -comes in 5 shades, works great as accents on tips of lashes for a pop of color

Be sure to go with a black mascara for the full drama, navy and brown tones will work fine for a more subtle look especially with fairer skin tones.

@sheamoisture4u makeup line dropping soon. Wowsers I can’t wait!!! #makeupnewbie #makeup #naturalmakeup #sheamoisture

Do you think it will be as great as their haircare line? Comment below 👇👇👇👇👇

Femme Boy- Super excited about Shea Moisture’s expansion into makeup, hope it holds up. The line is set to be available in Target stores this Spring.

Click HERE for more info on the new cosmetics line.

Dry Twist Out I tried last night, definitely prefer a nice wash or rinse before, but I could get into it.  Hair is partially untwisted in picture above. My curls feel soft, but not as touchable as they would with a fresh twist out. :-(

Products:

-Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie- curl definition

-Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Coil Moisturizing Souffle- helps with my curl elongation

-Shea Moisture Curling Gel Souffle- great for taming frizz, use sparingly

Will be posting full hair regimen soon. 

Q

divisionsaredecisions-deactivat asked:

i love your tumblr. any suggestions for a male looking to appear more androgynous/feminine?

A

I want to first say , I am big on false lashes, it’s instant femininity . :-) Outside of that, it’s all in the details. Focus on the features that make you FEEL more feminine and soft. Create a space of glamour and power that will accentuate you  in any way you feel, don’t hold back. 

Now, I am sure you want actual beauty tips:

-Wax, don’t shave

-Tucks aren’t worth the hassle

-Pay attention to your eyebrows

-Focus on highlighting and conturing, nice highlighting is sweet and flattering. 

- Take risks with your look

I am not the authority on all things feminine, but I hope I helped. I really love your blog, btw.

Femme Fetch: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF30 -Dark Spot Correcting

I’m already a huge fan of tinted moisturizers, correcting creams, beauty balms, and any cosmetic aids assisting in fooling the world;Smashbox definitely feeds into this obsession. So let’s get to it.

So Femme-

  • light, buildable coverage great for everyday
  • great as primer under foundation
  • a little goes a long way
  • SPF!!!!! WE LOVE SPF!!!!
  • dark spot correcting.
  • matte/semi-matte finish

So NOT-

  • 5 shades-the blend ability and light formula make the shades work for many, but us dark girls once again don’t get the benefit of this. Would love maybe a warmer,”Deep Dark”  shade not just “Dark”.

Multi-taskers are the future of makeup and I believe Smashbox understands that more than most cosmetic brands. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream appears to fade discoloration slightly, but be sure to keep up a good skincare regimen also. Think of this product as an aid, NOT a solution.
