What should we go for: bold lips or smoky eyes? Should we wear fake lashes? Is glitter just for teens? What’s the trend today: natural or not? If fashion has taught me 1 thing about myself, it’s that I should never say ‘never’ and always keep an open mind. Red lips were so not my thing, until I gave them a try, and then another, and another… and now… I think they’re the best thing ever. Is there a makeup trend this cold season? Here are 7 beauty looks to choose from.  1. Aside from the dark bold lips makeup that we talked about here, another massive // READ MORE…

… the Pointed Toe Stiletto Ankle Boots that is. Or the I’m-sexy-and-I-know-it boots. Somewhere between motorcycle boots, combat Tom-boy-ish styles, and the ever present chunky heeled ankle boot – this pointy toe stiletto style, once reminiscent of those early 2000 when every girl with a penchant for fashion dressed as a glam goth chic, crawled their way back into our lives. Maybe we’ve just had enough with flat un-sexy shoes. Maybe we’re in a desperate need to feel feminie and strong. Or maybe… we just wanna look great regardless of what we wear, and stilettos + tasteful pointy toes can do that to any outfit. Or // READ MORE…

If I had a quid for every time I’ve said ”ah, wish I could raid the closet of…” I’d probably be filthy rich by now, and ironically would’t need to raid anyone’s closet no more. But the fantasy’d still be there. I mean us girls have always been obsessed with what our BFFs are wearing and have, more than once, given a few thoughts about raiding famous closets, right? But what if I told you,  it’s no longer a fantasy. Yeah go ahead now… raise your eyebrow. I know I did. So what I am saying? And what does it have to do with Marilyn // READ MORE…

Lately I’ve become pretty obsessed with (the concept of) red lips, to the point that I’ve started watching so many makeup tutorials and reading all sorts of red lips tips that I feel I’m becoming a tiny lipstick encyclopedia (as if). Now most of you might be rolling your eyes right now (those of you who are probably donning red lips with the most fabulous nonchalance), but it was just a few months ago that I’ve ever… yes EVER wore red lips. And you pretty much can count that one out, since it was a party… So I’ve still got the red lips during the day thing // READ MORE…

If you’ve been channeling Twiggy or Jane Birkin for the past years well kudos to you for forecasting the fashion cycle (and for those of you  looking for originality you’d better spice it up if you wanna stand out from the crowd) as 2013 Spring makes a huge swing right into 60s fashion. If Marc Jacobs’ Louis Vuitton collection in Paris last season wasn’t a big 60s MOD revival warning I don’t know what was. With a green pass for all the razzmatazz of the youth culture back in the day, I really don’t know what to expect street style & retail wise today. I mean fashion from A // READ MORE…

When it comes to hair this season, forget haircuts and hairstyles and focus on color or better yet coloring techniques that are uber hot in 2013! What am I rambling about? Why it’s the Hair Veiling & the Color Flipping Trends, that will supposedly be replacing the Dip-Dyed Hair. Well… I’d rather they add up to the dipped dyed style, because I finally want to do it :)  Hair Veiling is dying your hair a different shade underneath its first layer, getting subtle hair color nuances by creating hidden panels of color, so that when you flip the hair from one side to another it reveals another shade. And // READ MORE…

When it comes to makeup I’m a complete girly girl – love me a flawless hydrated skin, mascara eyelashes, thin eyeliner, lip-gloss and the occasional eye-shadow/lipstick/contouring. The golden rule is focus on only one feature at a time and play that up to its highest level… and though sometimes on the runways this rule rarely applies (just because we get to experience the art in fashion rather than the street style or day to day beauty tips), some reading between the lines can be done to spot next season’s beauty & makeup trends. And hair for that matter. Best part about doing such a cover post? Why the backstage // READ MORE…

No special occasion, event, party or romantic dinner could ever be complete without us ladies glaming up. And Valentine’s Day is no exception. It’s that day & night when we have to look our best for us (in the first place) to seduce our loved one or if single to turn loads of heads when partying with the girls. Though I’m not a makeup guru, I confess I love to be on the look out for makeup & beauty tips, and yes I am one of those girls who love to wear makeup. Can’t live without my mascara & eyeliner. I always say when you // READ MORE…

Continuing my Holiday Season fashion & style peaks, today I thought of presenting some of my favorite makeup & beauty looks that us ladies may use for NYE makeup inspiration. After all, the big party is but a few weeks away and just donning an uber sexy dress (click here for looks) is not at all enough… there’s yet a style statement to make with our lips, eyes and pretty faces. Plus we’ve got our hot manes and nails… Choosing the makeup for the biggest night of the year may be somewhat of a dread, but if you’re in doubt you can either keep it // READ MORE…

A look can hardly ever be complete without a touch of makeup or a beauty tip applied with care. Whether it’s a simple moisturizer or a full on kit of lipsticks, foundations, shades or eyeliners – we love all beauty & make up bits. This week FashionTag has decided to peek into some amazing makeup looks of sensuous lips in all the colors us girls love to wear. Pink, red, nude, burgundy, purple, lipgloss, lipstick, lipliner – talk about too many options, right? Not to mention which one looks better with your skin tone, eyes or hair. Then you have the textures, the quality to // READ MORE…
