Fashion Friday: Style Icon Kate Moss

| Friday, March 8, 2013

Unless you live under a rock,
and have stayed there for 25 years,
You know who Kate Moss is.

Supermodel-Fashionista-Business Savvy-Extraordinaire

Kate's iconic style has shaped and influenced fashion worldwide
Take a look!

 Heroine Chic=Kate Moss
Long Live Heroine Chic

Her leopard print coat has caused quite the roar!

Along with her leopard print, Kate often 
sports a fur chubby coat
Being the muse that she is,
this means all of London and beyond wears fur chubby's too!

Adding a stylish hat to her perfectly undone locks
offers a certain á-la-mode

Moss' wedding dress was nothing short of her
don't-give-a-sh*t-chic look.
Designed by Galliano, she looked like 
a beautiful vintage-esque statue of glamour!
Have a closer look at her veil...it's a statement all in its own!

Years of creating her own style, sans stylist,
opened doors for Kate to design
for ultra-cool brands like TopShop, LongChamp,

Every fashionista out there has lusted over
an outfit or two of Kates.
She's a true style icon, and for good reason



Much Love From,

Artists Within 'Kate Advocates'

Teach Me Tuesday-Celebrity makeup for the everyday gal

| Tuesday, March 5, 2013

If you missed Friday's post, shame on you!
Consider yourself out of the loop because
today we are teaching all you how to 
achieve red carpet looks
at home!

Solange Knowles

Check it

Anne Hathaway
Start with a flawless, perfectly concealed base
Keep the look minimal
A dash of pale pink on the apples of your cheeks
A grey lilac hue swept across the lids with
a slight winged liner.
False lashes to add glamour and drama
And finish the look off with a matte rose
lip color
Ta-da! You are Red-Carpet ready, or whatever

The new 'It' girl
Jennifer Lawrence
A slate blue smokey eye is the focal point for this look.
Keep it that way by keeping everything
else mute.
A dewy base is achieved with a cream highlighter,
a natural peach blush is applied
and a super-sweet frosted pink lip color
is the icing on this cake!

Kerry Washington, a true beauty!
A fresh base kept dewy with cream highlights
A berry toned blush
Shimmery pink lids complimented by
a soft taupe crease
Chocolate brown liner, set to last, with 
golden brown shimmer powder.
Add a rosy pink lip 
and call it a day!

Sultry Salma Hayek
Dewy base was the trend this year
at the Academy Awards
Apricot cheeks with shimmering nude lips
Add a neutral lid with a dab of gold in the centre
Follow with a heavy, smokey crease and blend(!)
Line the eyes with a gel or cream liner
to cause a spectacle

4 looks to try at home,
get to it!

Much Love From,

Fashion Friday- Our Oscar's picks

| Friday, March 1, 2013

Whoa, late blog post!
The academy is buzzing, so we're a little late on the posting draw.

Get ready, we are going to throw some looks from 
last week's award show at you...

Every year we are guaranteed to see some
fashion flops and triumphs
This year was no exception...

Starting with everyone's fave new girl on the scene,
Jennifer Lawrence
With a pretty-in-pink Dior couture dress, 
girl looked good!
...she was even graceful 
as she tripped up the stairs; that's elegance

Next up, trouble starter Anne Hathaway
Causing a stir between designers after
stepping out in a Prada frock post Valentino
boasting about Mrs. Hathaway wearing one of their
own designs.
Also, it appears a cool Canadian breeze followed
Anne around where ever she went...

Kerry Washington was a show stopper in her
pink Miu Miu shift
Although we coveted her look, 
Kerry gained some haters by wearing this number
Aw well, haters gonna hate
What does she care?! She's rich!

What would the Academy Awards be without 
pint-size, smoke show, Selma Hayek?
Although we loved the Alexander McQueen dress,
we weren't sold on her overall look.
But what do we know?!

Check back on Tuesday to learn
how to re-create makeup
looks from the Oscars!

Happy Friday Fashion Freaks!

Much Love From,

Artists Within "critically acclaimed"

Teach Me Tuesday: Fashion Friday how-to's

| Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Friday is translating into Tuesday
You know, minus the pleasant prospect of Saturday.
Today, we're dissecting the looks from Friday's
post and showing you how the 
pro's do it

Starting with Moschino's look
Electric eyeliner made its presence known on 
the bottom lash line...

A fresh base with subtle warm contour, natural
groomed brows, and a pristine pout
allowing the eyes to steal the runway.
As seen on Moschino models.

How to: 
Apply foundation only where needed to ensure your natural glow isn't masked.
Add an understated illuminator to your foundation for a little sparkle

Groom brows with a disposable, clean, mascara wand to achieve the natural shape.
Keep 'em in place with a little brow gel/wax or a light hold hairspray

Slap on your fave lip balm to add some moisture

Line the bottom lash line and water line with 
an electric blue, volatile violet or intense tangerine
Remember to set your liner with a matching eyeshadow color
or a translucent powder
to ensure in-to-the-night wear

Missoni's runway look had the gab doing all the talking!
A juicy punch of color makes us think of
tropical flavored candies and rainbows!

A heavily highlighted, dewy, base,
exaggerated brows, no-shadow lid and
a light coat of mascara
lets the mouth do all the talking for this
look seen on Missoni's SS2013 runway

How to:
For heavy highlight, use a liberal amount of liquid or cream highlighter, apply
to all areas you want to accentuate
ie: Cheek bones, above brows, chin, jaw line.
For a more faint highlight, mix it in with your foundation only
Add a pale pink contour to emphasize the cheek bones even further

Groom brows, making sure to exaggerate the shape with your pencil and powder to maintain the look

Offer restraint when apply mascara. The look calls for natural lashes (try brown to keep it  über organic looking)

Line your lips to avoid any bleeding of lip color. For longer wear, color them in using the lip pencil. Put your desired lip color on top.
The face chart above shows that the artist, Lucia Pieroni, uses a highlight
around the mouth for an instant pout plumper, sans needles

Finding face charts for Peter Som's runway makeup was
damn impossible!
We'll have to settle on a backstage shot...

Artist, Tom Pecheux, makes sure to keep the
focal point on the baby blues by muting
the rest of the look.
With next-to-no-makeup visible, all 
eyes are on, well, the eyes.
Colors reminiscent of a shirley temple
or a blue lagoon.

How To:
 Follow the same base and brow steps from the Moschino look
Light foundation, natural groomed brows, lip balm.

 Start with an eye base (primer) to make certain all pigments
show true color when placed on the lid
To make this look translate to the street, apply the crease color no higher than the crease.
Delicately dust the lightest shade all around the eye 

Give it a try now and you'll be spring ready for whenever it decides to stick around!

Fashion Friday-SS13 Makeup and Hair Trends

| Friday, February 22, 2013

The word fashion encompasses more than just wardrobe
Hair, makeup and accessories are all things to consider
when pulling together, and completing, your look

With only a couple months left of shoveling snow 
and scraping frost, the thought of
Spring and Summer is becoming an attainable reality
Take a glance into the future and lay your eyes on
the makeup and hair trends of 2013

Gravity took its toll on last years top knot pulling it down
to below occipital 

Expertise is not required to create this look. 
Its a DIY makeup dream; imperfections are required

Low ponytails contained in a braid
achieve practical beauty
with minimal effort

You can't keep the orange lip down
Season after season we see tints and shades of
l'orange and this season is no

Do-ragging in style!
Cover up salon neglected locks
with the help of a printed
scarf, band or wrap...
Or simply wear it 'cause it's cute

Toxic turquoise liner made a 
bold debut this season
paired with a barely-there-base and a
nude, natural pout

Watch for the how-to tutorials for
all the makeup looks on
Tuesday's post!

And for gosh sakes, register for our spring classes

Much Love From,

Artists Within Peeps XO
