Since lips have made such a statement this year so far, we had to write about lip trends on the runway. Here are some of the final looks that made our cut from NYFW.
If for any reason, you haven’t heard of him, then you may be depriving yourself of some serious beauty 411. Troy Jensen, the preferred makeup artist of some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, has worked with starlets including the Kardashian sisters, Megan Fox, Jennifer Lopez, and the Pussy Cat Dolls. Oh, and he’s no ordinary makeup artist–the LA-based whiz is also known for his killer hair and photography skills. Talk about jack-of-all-trades! We are totally crushing Troy!
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG: started piling on in layers black then a blue that turns green on the bottom lid, then a blue/purple on the top inner lid, then some multicolored sparkles in the inner corner. Lips were pale, worn with a contoured cheek.
It’s been a little over a week since the death of designer Alexander McQueen and while the world is still grief stricken, his stocks show an inverse reality. Like most artist, McQueen’s value has gone up. What might be a surprise is the amount. McQueen’s sales have gone up by 1,400%. Although the situation is incredibly sad, the world of fashion will always appreciate his artistic genius.
Nothing is sexier than red rougey lips, and designers clearly agree! At Hervé Léger, United Bamboo, Karen Walker, Vivienne Tam, and Prabal Gurung shows at NYFW this past weekend, the popular designers used MAC’s Lady Danger (the matte orange-red lipstick). Makeup-artist, Stevie Huynh descibes the look as a “strong lip from a minimal standpoint”. This trend is sure to hit from runway to realway, take note diva!
Studies have shown, unlike any other nut, walnuts have a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that all contribute to beautiful skin and hair. This is why many articles on hair loss have recommended eating walnuts to reverse the process–by maintaining healthy hair, preventing hair from falling and actually increasing hair growth. Furthermore, these power nuts are also rich in protein, fiber, vitamin B, and magnesium which all contribute to healthier blood and bones.
The FDA released the following statement in March 2004 to further emphasize the benefits of walnuts:
“Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
