Cut It Out

The spring 2014 runway collections were a visual feast for shoe lovers, but there is one trend we’re looking forward to wearing in the new season. Prada and Jill Stuart displayed their cutout shoe designs during Milan and New York Fashion Week, which certainly made for one of spring’s most coveted styles.

As the cool-girl version of leather and lace, the cutout trend will make its mark as one of your closet staples. From city chic to classic cuts, the thrilling details of these reveal-and-conceal heels give a stand-out effect to almost any type of outfit.

RUNWAY WRAP UP BCBG…

BCBG NYFW FW14 Hero

 

While celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary, BCBG Max Azria was definitely not about showing off the past but how they are looking to the future. With designs full of asymmetric hemlines, mixed materials and graphic color-blocking, the collection still stayed true to the brand’s roots but in a more evolved way.

 

BCBG NYFW FW14 1

 

Hemlines were longer, silhouettes relaxed and each outfit comprised of various layers.  Overall the collection appeared very wearable and we can already see many women coveting the range next season. Happy 25th BCBG!

Beauty Bust…

FLY&MIGHTY_BEAUTY_HERO_FALL

 

We sit down with the talented and amazing Matthew Sky of Next Artists (and resident beauty extraordinaire to Bluefly) to get all the latest beauty tips for this season.

 

 1)    BERRY LIPS

This season it’s all about the berry lips – creamy, matte lips! Gloss is out and the lipstick is in! To get the look right you have to remember you want a less reflective look and one that will stay on all day long!  Try for a nice bright cherry or berry lipstick that will make an impact. For those who don’t want to go for a lipstick but still want to follow the trend, our expert says, “go for either a lip butter in a Plum or Rose, Korres make a fantastic  one or a lip stain, Sephora has a good one for a great price!”. Just remember make sure it’s a matt finish not a gloss!

 

2)    MATT/MINIMAL FACE

Don’t cake it on girls! Keep your foundation to a minimum and rock a more natural and youthful look. With your standout berry stained lips, you only need a small amount of coverage to ensure balance. When it comes to blush, same rule applies, keep it minimal! With the colder months approaching feel comfortable knowing that your skin will be lighter in the winter months. Embrace this and don’t overdo the bronzer or blush, it won’t look natural and this is the look you are going for!

When choosing colors, find ones that are harmonious to you and look organic! It must work with your skin. It’s not always about following the trend, but finding a color within the trend that works for you. Feel comfortable testing out makeup and different shades, have fun with it! Also remember, “If your make up looks like you took more than five minutes on it, then you spent too much time on it! It should look effortless!” Enhance your natural features without putting too much product on, this is the trick. Our expert says still feel free to build your makeup throughout the day and create a more dramatic look at night.

 

3)    FULLER BROWS

Cara or no Cara, the fuller brows are back and it’s time to ditch the tweezers!  Our expert gives us the top tips on how to create the ultimate in full brows this fall!

-       Tip 1: Remember to continue with your natural shape. Don’t go trying to create a shape for your brow that is not natural for your face! Follow the shape you have and if thin, extend the shape with a fine pencil but do not create anything away from your brows natural shape. “It’s about taking the shape you have and enhancing it,” our expert says. Don’t tweeze your brows into something that you don’t naturally have!

-       Tip 2: If you don’t naturally have a full brow, you can enhance your brow with a dark brow gel or even clear mascara to mold a more thicker shape.  Our expert claims the clear mascara to be his secret weapon when creating the ultimate brow. Well maybe it was his secret weapon, not anymore!

-       Tip 3:  You can use an eye powder and go over your brows to give a more natural and fuller brow, if needed. Stick to neutral shades such as an espresso brown or a taupe, this will create the right effect.

-       Tip 4: remember it’s not the 80’s or 90’s brow but a more 70’s brow! Think Marqaux Hemingway! And no arched brows please!

 

Well there you go! Your top three tips from our Bluefly beauty expert!  Now go have fun and try out these fall beauty trends.

Style to Mimic: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson Outfit

 

When Rachel Bilson isn’t wearing her favorite picks from her latest promotions, she’s mixing and matching dizzying prints and pops of colors that work so well with her petite frame.
