Revlon Jet Set Into Fall: Get The London Look

Revlon Jet Set For Fall: The London Look

All of the products needed for the Revlon Jet Set For Fall: The London Look

Revlon has a bunch of great (and affordable) makeup products but sometimes it can be tricky to pull it all together into a look. Luckily for us the awesome Revlon team has come up with some city-inspired looks that can give you the hottest trends for Fall in just a few simple steps. The looks are themed after famous travel destinations like London, Paris, and New York. I have the London look to share with you today, and it’s definitely something I can rock anywhere I am this season!

Be a London Lady

To get the London Lady look it’s an intense smokey eye paired with a natural lip. This is a trend that never goes out of style so you can rock this long after Fall. The products featured in this look are the following, and I have reviewed each one individually:

Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Onyx and Gunmetal: These shadows come in little blocks that can be linked together to create your own custom palette. The shimmer in both Onyx and Gunmetal is to die for, and although they don’t last for hours the colours are really great. I would recommend a primer underneath to make these shadows stick around, but these shades are probably two of the best ones in the ShadowLinks lineup.

Revlon ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner: For a super thin eyeliner this is the one to try. It has a tapered tip that pffers precision and fine lines, so your smokey eye will be perfectly defined.

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara: I just reviewed this one last week and am still in love with how quick and easy it is to apply. This makes a great everyday mascara but can be amped up with the rest of the smoky eye look to create more dramatic and dark lashes. You can read my full review on the mascara here.

Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in London Posh: I’ve tried these in a few different shades, which you can check out here. London Posh is a gorgeous peach shade that has a subtle gold shimmer to it. It feels smooth and soft on the lips and offers a hydrating stain with lots of shine.

To add to your look you can try the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Polish in High Stakes, a bright teal shade, or All Or Nothing, a pretty soft pink.

The recommended London look is a bold smoky eye and neutral lip, which is a classic combination no matter where you are. Day or night, Fall or Summer, London or Paris – this look is one that I will be rocking all the time thanks to Revlon!

Get the Look: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale stars as the edgy Aria on Pretty Little Liars, has a growing country music career, and has phenomenal style that I totally want to steal. As a pint-sized beauty Lucy rocks some seriously cute outfits, on screen and off, but it’s her beauty looks that really blow me away. She always seems to have the hottest lipstick shade and her brows are so bold.

Whether it’s the hot pink blush and lips she rocked at the 2014 Billboard Music awards, shown above, or her signature lucious lashes, Lucy Hale always looks great. She plays up some pretty bold features like her brows, lips, or lashes, but she never seems overdone. Instead of the usual advice to focus on one feature at a time, Lucy shows us how to create a total bombshell look.

Get The Look: Rachel Bilson on Hart of Dixie

I just started binge-watching another show on Netflix and all I can focus on is the main character’s makeup. The show is Hart of Dixie, starring the adorable Rachel Bilson. Not only is she a total style icon (hello, dressy shorts!) but her makeup looks always make me want to press pause and whip out my eyeliner.

Rachel Bilson has brown hair and brown eyes, just like me, and I think that’s why I relate to her looks so much. I feel like I can actually try them myself. Jamie King, the other female lead in Hart of Dixie, is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty, and as much as I love her Southern belle looks, I know they would look much different on me.

After watching a few episodes (okay.. binge-watching season one in a few days) I have come to love the makeup looks Zoe Hart rocks. Even in a small town she has her eyeliner game on point and always has a great neutral lipstick. In addition to some great pictures of Dr. Zoe Hart, I’ve also complied a few products to help get the adorable, sassy, doe-eyed look that Rachel Bilson rocks on the show.

To get her heavily lined eye look I would recommend a smooth gel-like liner that is easy to blend and smudge. A great option for this is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner. This creamy liner is a breeze to apply and can be blended for a smooth, smoky look.

For full lashes like Dr. Zoe Hart, try the Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara. The curved brush gets every lash and the falsies-inspired formula offers lots of volume and length.

Dr. Zoe Hart always has glowing skin and you can get the same rosy glow and a subtle bronzing with one just product, Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake. This golden-hued blush is a great way to add a slight highlight to cheekbones without going for a super-girly pink shade.

To get the neutral lip looks that Rachel rocks try one of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balms. These sheer gloss balms come in 16 pretty shades so you can find the perfect one for your everyday look. You can check out my review of them here for more information.

So there you have it. An easy how-to to get the adorable look that Dr. Zoe Hart, a.k.a. style icon Rachel Bilson, wears on Hart of Dixie. Now I’m only on season one so far so don’t tell me any spoilers but let me know if you watch this show too! 

Get The Looks: Top Three Beauty Looks From World Mastercard Fashion Week

If you’ve ever wanted runway-ready makeup then get ready to be amazed and inspired by these three gorgeous looks that were spotted at World Mastercard Fashion Week. With the insider information straight from backstage here are the beauty looks from three of the trendiest shows. Pink Tartan, Line Knitwear, and Narces all rocked some seriously inspiring Spring makeup and Maybelline New York makeup artist Grace Lee created these looks with products you can get at your local drugstore. Start writing a shopping list because you’ll definitely be wanting to try some of these looks this season!

The beauty for this ultra-luxe collection was inspired by a modern-day Verushka braving the Polar Vortex for a glamorous night out. With elements from iconic 60’s beauty looks, Grace worked brown Lasting Drama Gel Liner into the crease, and blended it out for a softer take on the classic “banana boat” liner. She blended Crayon Kohl Liner by Color Show in Chocolate Chip into the top and bottom lash lines and added the same pencil in Barely Beige to the waterline. Grace encouraged her team to be “very generous” when applying multiple layers of Pumped Up! Colossal mascara. To create a wintery sun-kissed look, Grace worked FitMe Bronzer into the skin and blended Master Glaze in Pink Fever into the cheeks to give the effect of wind burn. For the final touch, Grace used Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool to add a frosty highlight to the skin. And that perfect nude lip? It’s all about The Buffs by Color Sensational in Nude Lust.

Line Knitwear

The designers describe the inspiration for this line as “A mythical forest.” This collection is soft and very feminine, with an added emphasis on bright colours rather than the neutral shades that they tend to favour. Taking a cue from the inspiration, Grace created an otherworldly graphic silver eye, accented with a matte, bright pink lip courtesy of Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids LipColor in Vivid Rose. Color Whisper by Color Sensational LipColor in Faint for Fuschia was brushed onto the entire lip, and Vivid Rose was layered on top and concentrated in the centre for a three dimensional effect.

Narces

To match the flirty femininity of the collection’s glamorous dresses, Grace chose a classic red lip to take centre stage. She stuck to subtle shading for the eyes with Expertwear Eyeshadow in Earthly Taupe applied into the crease. She brushed brows up with clear Great Lash Mascara and coated top and bottom lashes with Pumped Up! Colossal Mascara. She mixed three products to give skin a luminous glow: Baby Lips in Quenched, Expertwear Eyeshadow in Vanilla and Color Tattoo in Barely Branded. The crowning glory of the look – the lips – was created with Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in On Fire Red.

All of these pretty looks are easy to do at home and you won’t spend a fortune on the products. These three looks are sure to inspire you for Spring!
