Earlier this season we saw pink and other bright hues make its way onto runway shows, in other words onto the eyes, cheeks and lips of models creating princess feel that has now made its way amongst celebs who have been rocking pink all over the red carpets lately.
Soft pink and shimmery rose shades are being used as blush, eye shadow and even on the lips that throws us back to that Californian teenager look.
Draping, replacing the ever popular contouring technique, has made a comeback in the beauty world and is being used for a more intense or avant-garde look by wearing your blush all the way up on the corner of your cheeks and to the side of your eyes.
Get the look:

The end of August: the end of summer vacation; a bitter sweet time for everyone, but for any Fashionista, the beginning of Fall Fashion! Goodbye shorts and sandals, and hello scarves and leather jackets!
While some of us head back to school up north, the rest of us in our tropical island can enjoy the perks of Fall Fashion with these universal Fall Fashion Dos this year:
– WARMER COLORS
As September approaches, dress up in warmer colors. See Fall 2013 color palette:
– GLAM MAKEUP
Dare to wear deeper lip color such as burgundy or tomato red; And add drama to your eyes with a classic cat eye, or try a copper eye shadow.
As the temperature drops, pick up the cardigans, vests, scarves etc… Instantly gives an outfit dimension and oomph.
– PATTERN MIX
A big fashion trend this Fall. Mix and pair your favorite prints and patterns!
Rock the preppy style with a nice cardi as they are perfect for school and/or work and can be worn it different ways.
– “NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY” RULE OUT
We are in 2013 anyways, who says to follow the rules? Wear that sexy white dress, and buy that beautiful white coat or blazer!
