Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: Bird Of Paradise
It’s easy to forget how dumb and gross it is living in the city when summer rolls around and nobody’s wearing pants, let alone ample butt coverage (being that this year, the hemlines are rising well above cleavage crescent in the jorts realm). Skin is a beautiful thing, especially when you get to paint it all fancy and show it off.
In possibly the first time for me that a beauty look has been inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary on Netflix, I’m taking a feather (or petal?) from our winged brethren, the bird of paradise. Funny how it’s generally the males in nature who get all the pretty colors to dance-hop around and woo their future baby-mamas. Not to delve into cross-dressing here, I see no problem following suit with these harbingers of tropical paradisco. Here’s a look inspired by the flower or the animal—you pick.

So you can imagine our panic when we noticed that neon under-eyeliner was becoming a thing. To find out how to rock those under-eye brights without going full-blown Bowie lighting bolts, we called Gloria Noto, our go-to makeup guru, for reinforcement. Get beauty-schooled.
