Rock Radiant Orchid In Your Beauty Routine













[Smashbox Photo Op  Eye Shadow Trio in Autochrome ][Marc Jacobs Blush in Outspoken ][YSL Mascara in Fascinatingly Violet][NARS Larger Than Life Lip gloss in Annes Folles ][Marc Jacobs Nail Polish in Oui ].

We’re well into the New Year and thus well into make or break time for all the resolutions we’ve set. I’ve never been one for resolutions but I always vividly remember one year I did. My senior year of high school I resolved to use color in my makeup routine. I told myself that I would pick a color every month and it would be my task to learn to use that color in wearable and approachable ways. That first month I chose purple and a MAC eye shadow called Parfait Amour and my love for color in cosmetics only grew from there. Looking back I find it fitting that Pantone’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid, a sort of hybrid of Fuchsia and Purple. So In honor of my resolution all those years ago,  here are my favorite  products to rock radiant orchid in your beauty routine, try them individually or all together to freshen up your look in 2014!

LAST MINUTE Halloween Makeup Look by Becca

Halloween is right around the corner, but what's that you say? You have no costume?! Not to worry, here are 2 Halloween looks you can achieve with makeup you've probably already got at home!  

Party At Gatsby's  


Start with a standard smokey eye using silver eyeshadow as a base and blending upward with black eyeshadow. Add a good pair of false lashes and line eyes . Next, follow your normal foundation routine and add a touch of pink blush. I used NARS Orgasm here. Lastly, add a BOLD red lip! I used NARS Flamenco here! For the finishing touch, curl your hair, pin it up, and you're ready to go!  Tip : Outline your lips with concealer to help emphasize your cupids bow ( top of the lip ) like the ladies of the 1920's.  

OH Deer!  


Start by applying foundation to the face. Next, using NYX Jumbo Milk Pencil, color the perimeter of eyes ( in a mask like shape) and down the center of the nose; blend using a brush. Around the perimeter of the white mask you've just created, use a Dark Bronzer from your forehead down to your mid cheek. Using a black eyeshadow, my personal fave is Carbon by MAC, place shadow on the lid only- follow with black liner adding a wing on the edges and also in the front going towards your nose. Using the same liner, draw in your nose then, using the NYX Jumbo Milk Pencil, draw spots on both sides of your face. Add Lashes to the top and on the bottom away from your actual lashes. Darken your eyebrows with black eyeshadow and you're set to be what all the hunters want this Halloween! Happy Halloween Loves !

Easy Breezy Summer by Becca

Photography: Rachel Elaine Photography

Summer is here and finding that perfect look is always a dilemma . It's too hot for full hair and makeup so TSS Dolled Up Contributor, Becca, compiled a guide for the perfect effortless summer look. 

Easy Breezy Summer
by: Becca

Nothing says summer quite like beachy waves! Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray is just the thing to help you achieve that look even if you live no where near the ocean . Spray freshly washed and slighty damp hair all over, then separate into four sections and braid . Let your hair dry for 15 minutes then remove braids and scrunch hair and voilĂ , perfect beachy waves ! 

Onto your fabulous face. Prep eyes for eyeshadow with a primer (my favorite is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion)  and sweep on a single shade from the Sonia Kashuk Shimmering Sands Quad (super cheap and available at Target!). 

TIP: Every cosmetic routine has two parts: skincare and color. Skincare is everything before cosmetics and color is all the fun stuff post skincare. Start your color portion of your makeup routine with the eyeshadow to avoid fallout from excess pigment or sparkles. 

Apply Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream evenly over face with a brush or fingertips. CC Cremes are a great summer option because they are light, provide coverage, and help to correct imperfections and protect the skin with SPF. 

Follow up with the NARS  bronzer blush duo in Orgasm/Laguna. Apply bronzer on the outer perimeter of the face, bridge of the nose and mid cheeks, then apply blush on the apples of the cheeks moving upward toward the ear. 

Finish the look with a coat of Tarte’s  Lights Camera Lashes mascara and some Maybelline Babylips and you’ve got the perfect effortless summer look!
