Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Model In The Morning: Meet Christy!
When you imagine the ultimate California girl, she probably looks a lot like Christy Peterson. After playing dress up in our Spring Collection swimwear, the laid-back beauty (and Cali native) gladly took some time to talk music and her favorite place to soak up the sun.
I’ve always wanted to…
Move to an island, live on a farm with horses and chickens and grow my own food! One day…
My biggest fashion splurge…
I actually don’t spend a lot of money on clothes. I’d rather go on an amazing vacation!
The album I could listen to on repeat forever…
Graceland by Paul Simon
If I could trade place with anyone for a day, it’d be…
Kristen Wiig! She is so damn funny. I’d love to know what’s going on in that brain of hers.
The best concert I’ve been to…
Bon Iver. Everyone was so quiet you could hear a penny drop.
My perfect day…
Lying on the beach in Tulum soaking up the sun!
I never leave home without…
Saying “I love you” to my man
My biggest beauty secret…
Eating healthy and always wearing SPF
When in doubt…
Throw it out!
Words to live by…
“Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones!”

Friday, February 15, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: She’s A Rainbow
You don’t have to be Ziggy Stardust to get away with wearing a rainbow on your face. To prove it, our makeup guru Stacey Nishimoto is giving us the scoop on how to get the perfect sugar-coated lids. And yes, you can actually do this!
To make it a reality, it needs to happen on fresh, dewy, SHIMMERING skin. Apply foundation over semi-damp skin and finish with a veil of loose powder. Then highlight cheekbones, temples and the bridge of nose with a pearly shimmer. Glowing skin balances the look of wearing a prism of colors. Also, mixing metallic eye pigments with matte shadows adds texture and elegance to your bone structure.
Now that you have a fresh face, brush metallic gold shadow all over the lid. Don’t worry about getting the blending perfect, think of it as a water painting…colors bleed into each other.
Next, apply turquoise shadow to the inner corner of your eye with a hint lime green on the outer inner corner to frame the turquoise.
Now it’s time for a splash of orange above the gold lid. Blend the shadows into your brow to make your sherbet hues melt onto the forehead.
Apply lavender to your temples with purple below on the tail end of brow bone. Next, use a metallic green-blue (I used a pencil here) a draw a sideways V to frame your eye.
Last, but not least, sweep yellow(!) blush on cheekbones with a pop of pink blended underneath.
Have so much fun experimenting – the color combinations are endless! Just use circular motions with brushes and blend, blend, blend away..even your mistakes!
