Beauty Trend FW05 I: The essentials

The Sept issues of various magazines are all seemingly telling you similar yet different trends. The most popular "eyes" that we should be donning this season are the 60s' mod eyes, glacial/ shimmering shadows, fake lashes and either a dark hue of bronze, plum or green shadow. Before you panic about which makeup you should buy, just narrow the trends down to your favourite and suitably practical one.

This is definately one of my favourtie ads this season. When I first saw this Moschino ad in the Aug magazine issues, I just paused and gaped at it for so many minutes. I spent quite awhile studying the eye makeup- the thick black eyeliner, the mega dramatic lashes and beautiful, volunimous one-sided pony tail. So striking, so grand.

For this season, I'm all for the 60s black eyeliner and big lashes look, (not mod.) Here are some inspiration from the catwalk:

Eyes above from the FW05 fashion shows by Alessandro Dell'Acqua (2), Christian Dior (1) and Dolce & Gabbana (1).

This season, all you really need is a reliable eyeliner, a thickening and lengthening mascara, and maybe fake lashes. Do NOT use strong lip colors with this look unless you use light color eye shadow to balance the colors out. Simply use pale pink lip colors. Here's my pick of essentials this season:

1. Use a smudge-proof, water-proof, everything-proof eyeliner to line your eyes. My trusty eyeliner is MAC powerpoint eyepencil. If you have circle-shaped eyes, then you should wing out at the outeredges slightly. If it's for daywear, then don't draw the eyeliner too thick.

2. Use an eye-curler (like this Shu Uemura one) to curl the lashes, and swipe on a layer of mascara primer. (I like the Lancome Cils Booster.) Using a mascara primer really helps put in more volume to the lashes.

3. The lastly of course the most important of all- mascara! Swipe and squiggle on the mascara immediately after the primer. I'm using the Diorshow one at the moment and think it really makes your eyes look more dramatic. (I've recieved loads of compliments becaues of it!) I've also tried the Estee Lauder Magnascopic mascara -it's another good pick to add volume into those lashes.

And the only last piece of advice is: put all this black makeup on elegantly! Too much of the eyeliner or if the makeup is not put on carefully, you'll end up looking cheap and vulgar, and err, you probably don't want that!

wow... the moschino ad is so beautifull! i'm in love with it - it's the first time i've seen it cause it doesn't appear on any portuguese mag. the make up is really gorgeous, she looks like "twiggy meets audrey hepburn". i've the Estée Lauder magnascopic mascara and it's perfect..really magnascopic lol :) about the eyeliner - i always ask a friend to do it for me, cause my hands are not very steady and i always end up looking pathetic lol

I have to add another mascara to that list:

L'ancome's new Extreme Mascara, it's insanely lenghtening, like add extensions to your lashes except it doesn't thicken/add volume. A primer should help out w/ that tho

I love the advert and this make-up, but I think it's not just black eyeliner/mascara/eye pencil, but there is some black eye shadow, too (the most difficult colour to apply).

Yup, the ad prob also used black eye shadow. But for a daytime or just normal simple look, I think eyeliner and mascara is sufficient. But if you want to glam up to look gorgeous at night, then ya, def use black eyeshadow.

A less expensive mascara - which I trust and love - is plain old L'Oreal Voluminous in Black.

Revlon actually makes a great mascara that has primer on one end and mascara on the other.

Priced at less than $10, you can afford to have one at home, one in your purse, and one at the office......

Because lashes are essential, baby.

I shutter to think that anyone would realy fall prey to such an obvious mistake as the one made here by Moschino.

Go ahead look like a racoon that just got struck by a truck and managed to limp to the side of the road with two black eyes.

I want to share an important and valid secret....pssssst come closer so I do not have to say this too loud.

When and where have you ever seen woman "EMMM HEMMM" Ladies! who have this much makeup on? Thats right you dont unless they are street walkers, call-girls, and lets not forget my favorit the harlot!

So Please Please Please stop saying how beatifull all this shoe polish looks all over your eyes...
