"Really, really, really ridiculously good-looking"

It's been forever since our last post but we took a little hiatus from blogging because of spring fever and the need to clean out our house our studio and redecorate it. I don't know about you, but spring gets me in a mood to spring clean and get rid of all the clutter. I always have to go through my closet and get rid of all the things that have been sitting there unworn or unused. Also Tax season makes me go through the files and clean out those too. With all this cleaning and redecorating we have been up to our elbows in STUFF! Then along came a little post on my facebook page from my friend Robin at SELF about beauty and "Make Up to Makeover your Mood". She is the beauty editor at Self Magazine and has lots of great ideas to share. Lately, I have been into wearing berry lips by using  M.A.C.'s Mahogany lip pencil and then filling them in. Camilla has been into really, really red lips using M.A.C.s Russian Red with a soft face. Here is some of our make up favorites from the fall shows that are ripe and ready for wear now.
At Givenchy amazing glittery red lips with the rest of your face soft
At Chanel dark eyes but soft lips
At Prada don't over pluck your eyebrows
At Miu Miu Dramatic eyes in bright colors
At Dior Orange eyes and soft berry lips while at Proenza Schouler dark berry lips and soft face
More pretty red lips, with a soft face and easy hairstyle,effortless beauty.
  Also on Robins blog she introduced me to another great blog that has now become a favorite of ours it's by Makeup artist Fiona Stiles "My Life in Paints Powders and Pigments"
Fiona is a makeup artist to the stars and has pictures with tips on how to apply the makeup on her blog. It's a must read for any girl.

So Thanks Robin for bringing us back out of the clutter and onto blogging once again. Now off to the beach, it's 80 and sunny in California today. Now you know why we have the fever:)

BIG fan of that first look. Thing is, no matter how often i wear my red lipstick i am quite aware that men do NOT appreciate red lipstick....
i always wear it for myself though :)
