what did we all think of last night's "gossip girl?" i personally thought it was a pretty good episode. here are some musings about our favorite upper-east-siders' hair and makeup:Leave A Comment ▸
her questionable ethics (trip van der bilt? really?!) and inappropriate office attire aside, i'm really into serena's recent penchant for tied-back braids. this is an incredibly easy look to re-create, and it's a fashionable alternative to the everyday ponytail. all you need to do is pull your hair back into a tight ponytail, and secure with a clear rubberband for a polished look. next, make a basic three-strand braid with the ponytailed hair as far down towards your ends as possible, and finish with another clear rubberband. you may want to use a bit of hairspray on the front pieces of hair, which tend to fall loose from the ponytail after a while.
next, we have jenny "little j" humphrey, whose newly-developing dalliance in the international drug trade seems like a bit of a stretch. it seems that little j is progressively lightening up on the super harsh, raccoon-esque smokey eye, which is definitely a relief. people oftentimes wrongly equate "smokey" with "black" -- next time, take a tip from jenny and try using a combination of brown shadows for a more natural look. ps: nice alexander wang jacket.
and then we have this one..
LOVE her, "bad romance" has been my newest theme song. however, do not try this look at home! there is only one lady gaga, so don't even try to compete. :)

the debate about green nail polish has been going on for quite some time now. magazines like w, allure, and instyle have all covered it in their latest issues. this fall, we took notice of the trend and created our very own deep green shade, called SINFUL (available for $7 at our make-up center). so far, the color has been a huge hit, with bottles of SINFUL flying off the shelves. the polish has even gotten some attention from the lovely makeup divas blog. so, would you go green? or do you prefer a more traditional polish color?Leave A Comment ▸
