OOTD: Sweater Friday

Friday…

Everyone’s favorite day of the week.

No matter how tired you are from a heavy week, you still manage to wake up with energy to take on the week-end.

Could it be the anticipation of the evening’s plans? Dinner at Papaye? Hangouts at Magdoos? The occasional BPPevents’ parties?

Our choices are limited here, and it’s up to us to make the best of our week-ends…

Halloween Makeup

Witches and ghouls welcome! All Hallows Eve conjures up our deepest fear and most whimsical fantasies. Whether you’re the vial and gory type or ethereal and love the magical side of things, Halloween is the excuse to go all out!

The Undead!!!

For all of you “Walking Dead”, or Anne Rice novels fans, here’s a look that can used for either a Zombie or Vampire costume.

The idea is to look as pale and tired as possible. Forget your concealer!!!! Use brownish and purple eyeshadows to create deep bags under the eyes (the one time this is ok). Contour your cheekbones as much as possible because you want to look super thin (Liquid diets and starving till you find some flesh will do that you). To finish off, use a deep red liquid lipstick to create a bloody mouth (Yum!)

Creepy Doll!!

This one creeps people out the most. There isn’t anything scarier than an innocent looking child, or doll with a killer streak.

Start of with a pale uniform and matte complexion. Use a white matte eyeshadow under your eyes to create the illusion of bigger eyes (A la lady Gaga), and use a black liquid liner to trace your “new” eyes. Go as wild and bold with colorful eyeshadows to further enhance your big eyes, and apply generous coats of mascara on the TOP lashes. Create fake bottom lashes. Put some blush on as usual (go a little heavier on the pink), and add some freckles. Create a little heart mouth in red, and draw lines on the corners on your mouth and add the sutures (creepyyyy).

Dark Fairy!

This one is for people (like me…), who love all things magic with a slight sinister edge. Anyone else a Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/ Dark Hunters/ Incarnations of Immortality fan here? No?… Just me? Moving on…

This one is a little easier. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to create a petal like pattern all over your eyes to make a butterfly like mask. Use any color from the same scheme. The trick is to have very pigmented eyeshadows because you’ll be patting the brush down. Use your liquid liner to create fluid lines on the edge of your eyes (Get creative!). Use a light blush, highlight in key areas, and a natural lipstick… VoilĂ !

Happy Halloween!

5 things you should STEAL from your Boyfriend’s closet

So we all know how sexy women find androgyny, and menswear becomes a “must” in our closets. We love boyfriend jeans, suits, bow ties etc. Unfortunately, our counter parts tend to think… well “Eww”. Here are a couple of guy clothes you can pull off all the while looking hot for your man.

1. His Tees and shirts

image_123photo_123Oversize shirts are always stylish. They are understated and clean. Be it to stay home, or quickly throwing it on to rush out of the house.

2. His Jacket

3. His Hats and his watch

I personally love men’s watches. All women should wear them because they make such a statement.

4. His sunglasses

5. His perfume

OK this isn’t a clothing item, but the chemicals react differently with your skin, and the musky scents are very sexy.
