Here’s my beauty take on fashion week. You spend a lot of the time appreciating interesting, yet unrealistic trends. On occasion, you fall hard for a few amazing looks (and immediately try them out the next day). And once in a while, the only appropriate response is to scratch your head and say, “huh?”.
I’m experiencing a combination of all three reactions from Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. show. I love the crisp, winged eyeliner shape that M.A.C. makeup pro Donald Simrock created. (Personally I’ll try it in navy or black, but I appreciate his fun, splashy palette. The rest of the makeup is soft and neutral so it works.)
With all the bare shoulders and exposed necklines, one may argue that smooth, glowing skin counts as another bona fide beauty look for spring. (Here’s where I start scratching my head–isn’t moisturized skin a given?) But then again, don’t you love the idea that applying a great lotion (the L.A.M.B. models used Vaseline Sheer Infusion) can make you feel prettier and on-trend?
