Monday, November 18, 2013 Guest Edit: White Eyeliner, Two Ways
Ivania Carpio of Love Aesthetics shows us how to wear white eyeliner in two totally fresh ways.
“I like things that are as radical as they are simplistic, like a single solid line as opposed to a perfectly-blended eyeshadow. Here is the result of experimenting with my new opaque white eye pencil. The first is an exaggerated, square version of a winged eyeliner.”

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 Guest Edit: Meet The Cult: Miyako Bellizzi
We fell in love with NYC Shoe Cult Ambassador Miyako Bellizzi thanks to her badass Bettie-Page-meets-’90s-streetwear aesthetic, but more so because girl can take some dang good photos. When she’s not shooting killer fashion spreads, she does a bang-up job styling (and sometimes modeling!) for ’em—and we’ve got proof. Miyako took some Nasty Gal pieces for a spin around her East Village ’hood, and we are seriously inspired by her edgy-yet-feminine approach to our favorite fall staples.

Thursday, October 24, 2013 Guest Edit: Halloweenie Makeup With Steaktooth
Just when I thought I was done slathering foundation all over my face for the sake of blogging, makeup artist Alana Dawn hit me up to try out some Halloween looks. Since I only got a whopping five zits from what happened after our last hang out (my fault—I have sensitive skin), I figured, “Why the hell not? What else am I doing?” (The answer: nothing, really.) Annnd, because I love multi-tasking, I tricked one of my besties into a hangout session where I also exploited her free time by tempting her over with chocolate donut-flavored coffee only to have her run out the door on the way to work still scrubbing anime makeup off her eyes. So, if you’re still stumped on what wear this Halloween, here are my two new favorite looks that really only require rubbing glue stick on your eyebrows and some $20 contact lenses to set them off.

Thursday, October 10, 2013 Guest Edit: Natural Makeup: A How-To
You’re relaxing on the couch, cuddled up watching some whatever TV show, and out of nowhere your dude blurts out, “I hate girls who wear makeup.”
Waiittt for itttt…. nope! No explanation. Just back to watching TV. COOL! WTF does that mean?
The rest of the week carries on, and you do your best to brush your hair, lotion up, and leave your mascara tucked away. You don’t hear a peep from him about your looks. Cool? You’re doing good. You’ve embraced this makeup-less freedom, and it makes your mornings really easy. Plus, aside from the 10 people asking if you were sick or tired, this whole thing is starting to feel kind of good.
Then, Friday rolls around, and you’ve got plans to meet up and go out. Of course you dip back into your makeup bag, slap on a little cat eye, and run out the door. What’s the first thing you’re greeted with? “Babe! You look great!”
Commence thought process that looks like this: “…………………………………………………..”
If you have been blindsided by this, then you have two choices.
Monday, October 7, 2013 Guest Edit: Southern Italy With Charlie Cuscito
It’s pretty obvious that 17-year-old Charlie Cuscito knows a thing or two about putting an outfit together (see: photo above), but what you can’t see is that she’s also linked to one of the biggest icons in the fashion industry, Anna Dello Russo. The Vogue Japan editor-at-large also doubles as Charlie’s aunt (so cool!) and her eye for on-point ensembles is paving the way for Charlie’s future in fashion. (She also hopes to attend the London Academy of Dramatic and Music Arts one day, NBD.) As she finishes up her last year of high school, we asked Charlie to give us a snapshot of what it’s like living in her hometown of Bari, Italy—and from the looks of it, it seems pretty dang awesome. Check out how Charlie mixed her all-black aesthetic and breezy Italian ‘tude in our Nasty Gal Collection Fall 2013 below. Bonus? That gorge Southern Italy coast as her backdrop.
