Jane is one of my favorite blondes. This gal was never dressed down. This made her a star. Jane’s classic look here is perfect for all complexions, hair colors, eye colors, etc. in my opinion. It’s about false lashes and bold, matte lips.

FACE: Jane’s complexion is perfection in this look. Apply concealer where needed. I like the long-wearing formula of Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer. Apply a satin foundation like MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. Dust with a loose powder. I like Lancome Absolue Powder because it isn’t “dry” looking. It helps with a glowing complexion look and to keep foundation smooth. Apply a pink blush to cheeks such as Covergirl Classic Color Blush in Rose Silk. I really do love this color and its price.

EYES: Jane’s brows look great. To get a similar look, apply a brow pencil such as Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil in a shadow for your complexion. Brush brows with a brow brush. Apply a buttery yellow shadow to the entire eye lid area. If you prefer a powder try BareMinerals Eye Shadow in Soul, a creamy beige shadow. If you like cream, try Benefit Lemon Aid. Thickly apply a liquid liner to top lash line, about 75%, not the entire top lash line. I like Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Brown Black. You’ll really need false lashes to get more of the “exact” look. I would apply individual lashes or half lashes to the top lashes, really emphasizing the outer portion. Everyone has their own way of doing this. Apply mascara to bottom lashes.

LIPS: Since this is a matte lipstick look, lips should be flake free. Scrub and apply lip balm thickly to lips hours before. Apply a simple, matte pencil such as NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned. Color in the lines. I also like MAC Lipstick in Impassioned for this look. The formula is an amplified cream. It’s satin, just a little bit more glossy and “forgiving” than a full-blown matte.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liquid Eyeliner isn’t your everyday eyeliner unless you are stripper (or me, just an over the top girl with lots of personality), but it is good stuff. This liner has a thin liner brush and the glitter doesn’t flake which is a big plus. Nobody wants to lose an eye to glitter. It comes in seven glam shades, all with rocker inspired names. I don’t know if it is quite heavy metal. I take that personally. This stuff is more Bowie or Edgar Winter. Not very heavy…

There is no hardcore here, just glam.

Anyways, there is Air Guitar (bright blue glitter), Baked (gilded bronze glitter), Distortion (multi glitter in a clear base), Glam Rock (super silver glitter), Metalhead (dark royal purple glitter), Mullet (jade green glitter), and Spandex (gun metal glitter). These can be worn in a thin line or swipped all over the lid for mega glitter. It goes for $18 and you can pick them up at sephora.com or ulta.com. I like a thin sweep personally. Too much makes me feel like it is Halloween. I like this product better than MAC’s but I think I like NYX better than Urban Decay. Now who was not liked?

It’s a little late in the season to still be obsessing over orange lips, but I can’t help it. I’m wearing it until snow hits the ground. I’ve been inspired by this lovely picture of Rita Hayworth for Down to Earth. To get this pretty simple but glam look you need to apply foundation or concealer as and where needed. I recommend L’Oreal Quick Stick Instant Foundation and Lola Cosmetics Creme Concealer. Lightly dust face with a loose powder such as Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil using a big fluffy brush. Lightly brush brows with Anastasia Brow Gel for definition. Fill in brows with a brow pencil such as the one by Lancome if your brows are light or sparse. Brush a nude eyeshadow such as the lightest shadow in Physician’s Formula Matte Collection Eyeshadow Quad in Canyon Classics all over the lid. With a crease brush, blend in the lighter bottom row shade into the crease from the same compact. Smudge the darkest shade on the top lash line with a liner brush or Q-Tip. False lashes are must to get Rita’s look. Apply a strip of whispy false lashes such as Andrea Mod Strip Lashes. Coat with a mascara if you want extra drama. I think the lashes by themself will add enough but if you want more volume coat with a volumizing mascara. Line lashes with a liquid liner such as Prestige Liquid Liner in Black, the sponge tip of this liner will give you the Rita look that you want. Apply a tiny amount of mascara to bottom lashes or if you have thicker lashes anyways leave them alone. The drama is on the top lashline. Apply Ulta Cream Blush in Bashful onto the apples of your cheek with your fingertips. Don’t be scared to add a little more if needed. Apply a bit of foundation or concealer onto lips so that the lipstick will stay. No lipliner is needed. Apply MAC Lipstick in Morange onto lips. I love this shade. It is an electric orange with no shimmer but has a semi-satin finish. It also has a light vanilla flavor and wears for hours. You’re done. Just apply a lovely lady like fragrance. I’m thinking a gardenia or a jasmine scent such as Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia solid perfume dabbed onto the pulse points. You’ll be sure to turn heads like this bleached strawberry blonde.

MAC has launched this season’s Cult of Cherry which I dig. I love dark lips and this collection offers that. It is a pretty edgy look. MAC made a long ass video for the collection too that can be viewed on the website. It also has three eyeshadow quads but I’m going to review Tempting. Tempting is pretty nice and kind of boring except for the acidic pop of the green which I find so similar to the eye shadow Bitter. Bitter is one of my favorite eyeshadows. I miss it with Chrome Yellow and a black with a pearly white highlighter such as Carbon and Crystal Avalanche. I also were it with bright blues like Freshwater and Electric Eel. I have paired Bitter with bronzes and browns with a bit of Gorgeous Gold. Sometimes I just wash the lid with Bitter and line with lots of black liquid liner. So what I’m saying is that I like Bitter. This compact offers that shade without calling it Bitter. In fact I don’t remember what it is called. The other shades in the quad include a shimmery nude, golden shimmery medium brown, and a dark warm brown. The shadows are a collection of satin, frost, and lustre and I think they all blend well. These all look great together. I didn’t buy the compact because I have colors are identical to this. See I can be financially responsible. The compact is limited edition and retails for $36 and the compact can be refilled. It’s really nice if you have nothing like it.
