Love Aesthetics x Nastygal white eyeliner 01

Ivania Carpio of Love Aesthetics shows us how to wear white eyeliner in two totally fresh ways.

Sharmadean Reid knows a good thing when she sees one. The London-based stylist and businesswoman has a habit of spotting (and even starting) trends early, from Nike pool slides to tie-dye Proenza Schouler tees. Back in 2008 she was one of the first people to bring fashion-forward nail art to the mainstream in the form of her hip London salon WAH Nails, and she’s been spreading the WAH way of life ever since. In her new book The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls, Sharma lifts the lid on her unique brand of style and success with a little help from a worldwide crew of girls. Our contributor Phoebe Lovatt spoke to her to find out more.

For Chanel’s 2014 Resort show in Singapore, makeup artist Peter Phillips created this two-toned black and turquoise cat-eye that, in our minds, evoked equal parts hell-raising pirate and tranquil turquoise seas. We thought it was the perfect punk-yet-still-pretty look for summer, so we got our own makeup artist, Stacey Nishimoto, to recreate it on Sophia. According to Stacey, the end goal is a clean top, and blended bottom—an architectural black line softened by a blue haze. Here are her steps!

Meet Mila!

It should take about .001 second to see why we couldn’t wait to have our favorite off-duty beauty, Mila De Wit, back in the studio. Not only is she a total blast to hang out with, she can transform from girl next door to smokin’ hot bombshell with a single bat of her lashes. We had a catch-up sesh with the Netherlands native and got the scoop on her Parisienne-inspired style and the one thing she would never wear.

Meet Tamiris!

Brazilian bombshell Tamiris Freitas isn’t just easy on the eyes (hello cheekbones!), she’s literally one of the sweetest girls ever. We chatted with her before she headed into hair and makeup, and even bare-faced she’s a total knockout. Here she dishes on her guiltiest of pleasures and where you can find her on Saturday nights.
