This is such an easy but polished look to pull off. It’s all about glowing skin and a bold but not brash lip. To get this look…

FACE: I would leave skin very sheer and just apply a highlighting cream/liquid such as Chanel Soleil de Tan de Chanel. I would use my fingertips to apply to the cheek bones to above the brow bones in a large “C” motion and down the nose. Cover up any “problem spots” with a concealer like CoverGirl Invisible Cream Concealer. Eartha’s skin is very dewy in this picture. Most people don’t like this look, I do, but if it bothers you apply concealer, oil-free pressed powder, then apply the illuminating cream/liquid. For a hint of color, apply a shimmery plum such as CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Snow Plum to the apples of cheeks. Apply a small amount with a fluffy, medium-sized brush.

EYES: Brows are filled in and brushed into perfection. Fill in brows with a brow pencil in a brown shade such as Benefit Cosmetics Insta Brow Pencil. Brush in place with the spoolie on the other end of the pencil. With a large, fluffy shadow brush apply a shimmery taupe shade such as NYX Single Eye Shadow in Taupe from lash line to brows. Curl lashes and apply a do-it-all mascara such as Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara in black. Apply about 2 coats to top lashes and one coat to bottom lashes. The eyes are very bare for this look.

LIPS: Apply a lush shade such as MAC Lipstick in Plumful, a rosey plum.

If I had to choose a scent for this look, I’d have to go for Guerlain Iris Ganache EDP, a gourmand iris.

Thanks to TV shows like Gossip Girl, NYC Prep, and I am sure there is something I am missing (Ricki Lake’s Charm School, haha), Bobbi Brown’s fall collection is “Ivy League”. It seems many people are obsessed with the prep school elite. Bobbi Brown is giving us the “college” aged version. Prep is in and the pun is on “ivy”. The focus is on pencils, very cute, writing=pencils. It’s a back to school color collection. It’s very neutral and contains functional, every day products.

EYES: There is a Creamy Eye Pencil in 9 colors. It’s a smoky, smudgy pencil that retails for $20. It isn’t the most exciting product that I have ever seen but I do know that it is something that would get used daily by many of us. There is the Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Gold Leaf. This is a pearly khaki gold highlighting shade,very pretty. There is a Metallic Eye Shadow in Bash. This is a lovely emerald green shimmer. I do love this color as an updated smoky eye. There is the Eye Shadow in Ivy, a lovely matte deep green. All shadows go for $20.The Long-Wear Eye Liner in Forest Shimmer Ink has been launched. This is a long-wearing gel liner in a pearly deep green. I love the color and the formula. It goes for $21. From my experience these deep greens look amazing on brown and hazel eyes and the very rare violet.

LIPS: There is the Lip Crayon. I love this product. I love applying lip color with a pencil. It creates definition and usually the formulas are longer wearing. This product comes in 6 shades and retails for $22. Lip pencils are usually leaning towards a matte side so The Crystal Lip Gloss has been relaunched and layered over the Lip Crayon. The gloss goes for $17.

Overall, the look is very polished and neutral. It is made “young” by the forest green smoky eye. I like the look even though I am not a fan of “prep” but at least the company has made the trend more appopriate for adults. That is my beef with the prep school stuff, a bit pedophiliac. At least this is “of age”. Anyways, this collection has some great everyday products. The green eye would look great on all hair colors, even redheads! Green eye makeup looks great on brown and hazel eyes and sometimes makes blue eyes look even cooler. Sometimes when I wear this shade it almost makes my eyes look lilac. I say if you are a redhead/brunette with brown eyes then go and try this collection or if you have a deep skintone. This is a collection for you.

Barbie is still looking good for 50, the number she will be celebrating this year. Stila is offering a limited edition makeup collection in honor of America’s favorite plastic vixen.

There are 4 paint can makeup sets that go for $40. You really get a lot in them. Each “can” has a featured Barbie from various decades. The trios and cans are printed with the doll of choice:

1959 Ponytail Doll: This is the “classic” of the cans. The 3 Pan Palette has a sea blue shimmer eyeshadow, a matte black shadow that pairs nicely as a liner, and a beautiful peachy coral shimmer blush. There is a Lip Color in Ponytail which is a luscious matte red and a Liquid Liner in Black.

1971 Malibu Doll: This is the pretty summer look of the cans. The 3 Pan Palette has a pale pink shimmer eyeshadow that looks amazing on the brow bone, a light blue shimmer eyeshadow, and a bronzer that looks great on complexion or eyes. There is a Lip Glaze in Malibu which is a pale pinky peach shimmer that is so pretty. It can be worn with warm or cool colors. The last item is a Lash Visor Waterproof Mascara in Black. This is the “blonde” makeup kit. It would look killer on those with Barbie like complexions.

1980 Foxy Doll: This is like the “80’s” look but don’t be scared of it, it is pretty tame. The 3 Pan Palette has a taupe shimmer eyeshadow, brown with gold shimmers eyeshadow, and a matte reddish berry blush. There is a Lip Glaze in Foxy which is a sheer coral orange and a Waterproof Lash Visor Mascara in Black. This is a pretty kit and I really think it can work on medium to deep skintones as well.

2000 Jewel Doll: This is the “hip and modern” doll that resembles a little Disney Channel diva. The 3 Pan Palette contains a beautiful tan shadow with pink shimmers, a golden brown eyeshadow with shimmer, and a medium pearly pink blush. There is a Lip Glaze in Jewel which is a beautiful pink shimmer and a Multi-Effects Mascara in Black.

There is a Talking Palette Eye Shadow that goes for $40. There is an icy pink shimmer, medium pink with gold shimmers, rich cranberry, and an iris purple. I find that for me at least, these colors when used together make me look like I’ve been in a fight. I look tired and well, abused. The pigments aren’t so bold so they give a strange slapped and bruised look.

I like the cans. I just wish I could mix and match some of the colors but that is understood when purchasing any set. I’m not wild about the Talking Palette. The colors aren’t great and I don’t want to pay extra tohave my cosmetics talk to me. Creepy. All are available on sephora.com.
