Fall inspired with Colored Jeans!!

Hey guys!! Today’s post was inspired by fall again, even though it’s spring here in New Zealand. In the last few days its been actually feeling like spring but it was cold the day of this outfit. It took me a while to put these photos on and I apologize for that. I also kept accessories to a minimum. So just my basic gold necklace and bracelet that I wear all the time with some stud earrings.

Jeans: Skinny red jeans from JayJays for $30

White Cardi: Long White Studded Cardi from Glassons for $59.99

Tank: Black plain tank from Supre ($10)

To brighten up this outfit, I decided to pair the long white cardi and black tank with some colored jeans and I chose quite a bold red color too. I absolutely love the color jeans trend!!

This is just a cutesy one of me and my sweetheart Bubu 🙂

Shoes: Rubi Shoes Nude $49.99

It’s a little expensive for a pair of shoes from Rubi but I love love love them. Perfect color, also great for making your legs look longer. Also nude shoes are perfect for matching them with anything, casual or fancy even.

Hey lovelies!! As most of you know, we do makeup! This fashion post is for the eye makeup look that will be posted on our Youtube channel called Rainbow eyes. This eye look is quite dramatic although totally wearable. A photo of the look will be posted at the bottom of this post as a teaser.

This outfit is totally everyday and could also definitely be used as a night time outfit without any tweaks. Very sexy and fun and totally cute.

Top from Forever New (NZ$39.99-sale)

Dark Green Jeans from Dotti (NZ$39.99).

Jewelry is limited for this outfit because the top has this beautiful collar. The necklace is a present and the bracelet is from when I was a little girl, it used to be my anklet. I’m a big fan of gold and this outfit is very gold-oriented.

The shoes are from Rubi Shoes (NZ$30.00-sale)

The handbag from an online store (NZ$25.00)

I love this shoes, so perfect for fall season as well. They don’t look very comfortable but they are surprisingly comfortable because of its chunky heel. Its a little edgy and still very classic and it suits almost any colored denim.

This is a sneak peek of the rainbow eyes makeup that I was wearing for this look. This outfit is one of many ways you can wear this makeup look. Colored jeans and even a sweater or a cardi added to any tank would look amazing. Share your outfit photos with me if you are inspired by this post on our Facebook page.

Even though it’s technically spring here in New Zealand. The weather and the wind makes it feel very much like fall. So today’s outfit is very much fall inspired. Big sweaters are all the craze. I don’t usually look good in one but this time, I found one I love. I love it soo much I have barely gone without it when its cold. Goes really well with tights or jeans, colored or otherwise. Its a standard black studded sweater from Glassons.

Boots from Rubi Shoes: around NZ$40

The booties are my favorite, bought them in winter but still getting plenty of use out of them. They are so comfy because of the chunky heel and totally versatile. Chunky heels are also very much in season this fall. So keep a look out on some great ones!

Bag from an online store on Trade me (Running in Heels) for : NZ$39

I just recently purchased this bag because I really wanted something that would go with all my outfits and still fit my laptop in it. It has a strap or you can use it as a shoulder bag. Very cute.

Rings from Lovisa for $5

Sunglasses are from a market somewhere for something like $20.

The Psychology of Beauty

‘Feeling guilty about your latest indulgence? Research suggests devoting time to our beauty regimes may be good for us,’ says Gabrielle Lane

Age 20-30 Sense & Sensibility

Little more than youthful radiance and a power pout is needed to emulate the beauty finish on show at Moschino Cheap & Chic A/W12. Make-up artist Val Garland was inspired by the lollipop pastel tones in the collection and visions of a ‘strong army of women’ when she planned powder pink lip created using MAC Paint Sticks, dusted with glitter and set with clear gloss.

Age 30-50 The New Definition

An asymmetric take on eyeliner is popular this season, but models at Edun showed that simply setting eye colour in a different place provides a contemporary yet wearable look, especially when the shade is metallic. ‘Fresh and easy with a twist,’ was make-up artist Yadim’s starting point when he added an indecent base and silver eye liner to the inner corners of the eye.

Age 50+ Theatre and Glamour

Lashings of eye liner and false lashes were Charlotte Tilbury’s essentials when she channeled 1960’s prom queens at Dsquared2. Longer lashes help open up the eye area and the availability of different lengths ensures the look can remain sophisticated for the more mature.

Holliday Grainger debuts A/W’s luxe looks – The Red Lip

After applying base, blusher and a few coats of black mascara, Chanel make-up artist Kay Moatano began working on the main attraction. If your lipstick has a tendency to bleed or you like a well-defined mouth, make sure the lip line is powdered, then line inside in a similar shade to create shape and fill in with your chosen colour. ‘However, paint straight on to lips – from the middle outwards – using a small lipstick brush,’ says Montano.


Rock ‘n’ Kohl

‘This is glamorous eyeliner with a cool, rocky twist,’ says Montano, who explains that the key is to make sure lines are smudged and imperfect. ‘Keeping everything else soft, prep the eye with a wash of ivory of stone eyeshadow.’

Then select a soft kohl, liquid or gel liner (whatever you are comfortable with) in your chosen shade. ‘Starting with your lid, take it along the lash line to the outer corner, before doing the same on your lower lash line, in the opposite direction.’

Using a clean cotton bud, gently blend and smudge the line to avoid any harshness and, if you want your look to go the distance, press a powder in the same colour carefully over the top. ‘Then layer black mascara on both sets of lashes to create more drama.’


Scarlet lips & smouldering eyeliner. Go Glamour!

A/w sees the return of the beefed-up brow, so be sure to invest in a pencil and gel. ‘Brows give your face definition and frame your eyes,’ says Montano. ‘Gone are the days of overplucked brows and defined arches, it’s far more chic to enhance a naturally wide shape.’

Always start by combing your hairs in an upwards direction, then fill in any sparse areas with soft, feathering strokes. ‘Oddly, if you are fair, darkened eyebrows work better than on brunettes, where they can look old-fashioned,’ she explains. ‘Better to widen them with a neutral pencil like Tom Fued’s brilliant Brow Sculptor in Taupe or Blonde, followed by brushing them up with brow gel or clear mascara.

‘Holli’s blonde, so I used a sharpened pencils two shades darker than her natural hair colour, brushed them up and set with a brow gel.’ Finish by balancing your strong brows with a glossy nude lip.

Tip Adviser

With manis long and simple or short and ornate – and everything in between – on offer for fall, Sloane Crosley finally comes to grips with the flaunt-em-if-you’ve-got-‘em glory of nail art.


Who’s got the lacquered talons? Which hipster details het tips? You know these famous faces, but can you ID their red-carpet manis?

  1. Jessie J.
  2. Jennifer Lopez
  3. Rihanna
  4. Adele
  5. Zooey Deschanel

Designers Gild

For the new long-and-neutral to a mani that’s literally tough as nails, the fall runways prove that – on your hands, at least – anything goes.

Vampy lips and out-of-this-world skin are key to Fall’s edgy new look.

It’s not quite Goth – it’s much prettier than Goth,’ says Linda Cantello. ‘Dark but beautiful,’ offers Lucia Pieroni. ‘Subversive chic,’ pronounces Pat McGrath. ‘A powerful woman,’ And there you have it, from mouths of the industry’s top makeup artists: Fall beauty is feminine – with an edge.

It starts with a deep, dark mouth: ‘Lip noir,’ McGrath says fondly of the looks she created at shows from Gucci (sticky black cherry) and Nina Ricci (blood red with a darkened center) to YSL (Bordeaux lacquer).

Beauty Trend no.1: English Rose

Cool Britannia rules on the catwalk – and this season saw a nod to British heritage with a new, ecocentric texture. Hail looked windswept, with a touch of rural chic; wispy, disbevelled tendrils framed ruddy check. In London, Paul Smith, House of Holland and Margaret Howell noted bike rides through country lanes as inspiration. In New York, bobs at Derek Lam and sloppy half ponytails at Michael Kors paid homage to the English lady, while flyaways at Vanessa Bruno confirmed the French fancy a little Brit wit.

Beauty Trend no.2: Romantic Goth

Whether it was the release of Dark Shadows or the unlikely muse Lisbeth Salander, this season saw an influx of pale-skinned, dark-lipped, vampish faces. Milan and Paris were bursting with otherworldly looks – Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent worked deep, velvety claret lips while eyes were smudged with taupe. Gothic, blackened-ruby lips appeared at Bottega Veneta, Rochas and Givenchy while chalky skin added an ethereal finish. Louis Vuitton, Versace and Versus all showed off haunted, sooty eyes. ‘Mascara makes them work in the real world’, says makeup artist Val Garland.

Beauty Tip no.3: A Space Odyssey

Sci-fi fever took over – we overheard references to Avatar, scarab beetles and superheroes meaning embellishment and colour had a strong season. Anna Sui’s models wore dashes and dots of cerulean around the eyes, while at Roberto Cavalli girls had dragonfly-like makeovers in blue, green and gold, and Chanel models sported intergalactic, bejeweled brows by couture embroiderers Lesage.

Beauty Tip no.4: Pony Club

The ultimate easy-to-wear option for women the world over, the ponytail was everywhere on the a/w catwalks. Pulled low and neat at Dice, they exuded chic, ladylike elegance; equestrian versions (Jonathan Saunders did it best) had a military uniformity. ‘I wanted the hair to look expensive so ponytails had to look immaculate,’ says Paul Hanlon, lead stylist for Frederic Fekkai. Equally wearable were Erdem’s ribbon-adorned numbers, Rochas’ preppy version and Marc by Marc Jacobs’s ultra-low, super-sleek offerings.

Beauty Tip no.5: Straight Story

The new straight hair is glossy and polished but without the flatness of previous seasons. ‘There’s a sense of luxury in simplicity,’ says Wella Professionals’ global ambassador Eugene Souleiman. Ensure there’s a natural bend in the hair. ‘Blow-dry with a barrel brush to get a luxurious finish, then iron for glossiness,’ advised Guido Palau, Redken’s global creative director and the man behind the look at Prada. Amessy, slightly off-centre parting is a modern option. ‘Dramatic side partings make hair flop and dead centre is too obvious,’ says Palau.

Beauty Tip no.6: Sunset Shades

Orange burned bright this season, from toenato red to neon tangerine. Sharon Duwsett, Maybelline New York’s make-up director, says, ‘Autumn/winter is the perfect time to break from monochrome with some colour because it’s so unexpected,’ At Dries Van Noten, a mandarin accent gave a flattering hit of colour. For an alternative take, Pat McGrath at Prada swept neon orange through models’ brows.
