Fashion Friday- Twas the Night (to shop and be merry)

| Friday, November 23, 2012

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the mall
not an employee was stirring, not even a doll
The Wolford stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that Louboutin's would soon be there...

Fashion Friday- ArtWear 2012; a success!

| Friday, November 9, 2012

Last night, an annual event went off without a hitch 
in spite of the heavy snowfall warnings all over YYC

ArtWear 2012 has been on the calendar for many 
high bidders, 
photographers and
the prying eyes of trendsetters,
for quite some time now.

Artists Within has had the pleasure of contributing to this event for quite some time now.
AW Models International stomped down the runway with enough
attitude to humble any teenage girl

And Artists Within makeup artists, busily worked backstage
applying silver smokey eyes, strong brows,
and a wine stained pout

A peek backstage at models and artists

The finished product was vintage, hollywood, gorgeous!

ArtWear 2012 will go down in YYC fashion history with top designers
Until next year, we'll file ArtWear 2012 in the success vault!

Much Love From,

Artists Within Artists XO

Teach Me Tuesday-Compliment close set eyes

| Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Almond, deep set, close set, hooded, protruding
There is an art and science involved in makeup

Today, we look at tips to create the illusion of even spacing between eyes;
fake it till you make it...and then continue to fake it!

A general rule when identifying 'close set eyes'
If a 'third eye' can't fit in the space between your two eyes,
this would be categorized as 'close set'

Jennifer Aniston is a great example of close set eyes

A crucial thing to remember...
Dark colors recede
light colors highlight; draw forward

When working on close set eyes, keep all dark colors and liner 
on the outer edges of the eyes.
This creates the illusion that the eyes are set wider apart
Avoid lining the eyes to the inner corners
This only accentuates the close proximity of the neighboring peeper
Instead, use a lighter color on 1/3 of the lid, starting at the inner corner.
This makes the eye brighter, giving the 
illusion on more space

Keep your brows nicely groomed
A unibrow is good on no one much less someone
with close set eyes!

So when doing your makeup, or makeup on someone,
take a step back before starting and evaluate your canvas
Consider the eye shape and the spacing between eyes
This will determine the placement, color and texture of makeup used.

Fashion Friday-Wearable Gothic makeup

| Friday, November 2, 2012

Transfer the drama from your lives 
and put it on your eyes (and lips)

Goth inspired makeup 

'Dramatic smokey eyes' is a timeless makeup look
Usually paired with nude lips to keep the focus on the peepers
This season, however, things have changed!

We are seeing drama on the eyes AND lips
to create a knockout finish!

Check out five of our favorite Goth inspired makeup looks
for you try this season

A soft smokey eye in browns and corals
Fresh, flawless face and 
a punchy red lip!
A great look for the wanna-be goth in training

January Jones creates gothic glamour
by using shimmer shadows and white liner in
her waterline

Tip from the Pro's: 
White liner in the waterline creates an illusion that the whites of the eyes are whiter than they may be
A good tip for those who suffer from bloodshot eyes or a slight yellowing 

60's inspired gothic makeup brings a whole new take 
on melodramatic inspiration

Emerald smoke, expressive brows and a bordeaux stained pout
This 1920's period look has beauty written all over it

Creating an all over drama look is not for the trepid
If you are going to do this look, go big and rock it!

So, we have inspired you to go goth, have we?
Artists Within carry's the quintessential Fall/Winter 2012 Goth Palette

Limited edition, come check it out for yourself!

Happy Friday Fashion Freaks!

Much Love From,
