Hi Dolls, and we can not forget about the Gents! Welcome to EYE-LOVE Cosmetics. It is a blog about, you guessed it, Make-Up. More importantly it is about my journey as a Full-Time Accountant/Part-Time Professional Free-Lance Make-Up Artist, and the hardships I encounter to make it as a Full-Time Professional Free-Lance Artist. So sit back and enjoy the ride, I am sure it will be bumpy.

And the Award Goes To...

I was truly in awe in how beautiful the stars looked last night for the 68th Golden Globes.  From Natalie Portman to January Jones, Mila Kunis to Anne Hathaway.  For the most part everyone looked stunning.  There were of course some celebs who should have opted for a second opinion, cough, Helena Bonham Carter, cough.

We saw a lot of trends on the red carpet this year, particularly, stars paying more attention to their skin rather than the overall face.  Stars stuck to minimal makeup with glowy/dewy skin.  I have always been a fan of this look, but I like a little more umph.  For those who stuck with natural makeup, they could have been daring with a bold lip color.  These are the awards!!  Have some fun!

On the hair front we also saw some trends including straight tresses, modern french twists and 1950's inspired looks.  The 1950's look was classic and elegant and was one of my favorites of the night.  One celeb that pulled this off was January Jones.  Not only did she look like a movie siren with her makeup and hair flawless, her dress was to die for.

Overall I would say the stars shined last night!

Just a Virgo?

An hour on the train is enough to go through technological withdrawal.  So as the subway ascends above ground I frantically grab my phone - first stop Facebook.  I notice that everyone is commenting on their zodiac signs, so me the natural nosy body that I am second stop was google.  To my dismay I came upon the story that everyone was talking about - there is a new zodiac sign.  

My birthday is September 22 and whenever asked what my sign is, my response was "I am a Virgo, but I am on the cusp so I am part Libra."  To give it a name it is the Cusp of Beauty and some descriptions - "Attracted to beauty which is physical and sensuous (whether in art objects, nature or people), these individuals are lured by color, shape, form, texture and the intriguing sound of music" and "sooner or later in their lives, they will have to address spiritual matters since they usually discover, at some point, that their love of externals is an inadequate preparation for the more unpleasant yet inevitable aspects of life..."  

Hello I am a make-up artist obsessed with colors, whenever I am in a store I have to touch every fabric and I have been on a spiritual journey.  (Not to mention it also says we are sensitive to sound)  I feel like someone or something has stolen my identity, dramatic I know (Thank God you do not know me personally).  That something is Ophiuchus.  It seems that the dates for Virgo have been moved to Sept. 16 - Oct. 30

The reason for the change has to to with the sun's positioning for the full story read it here - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/13/new-zodiac-sign-dates-oph_n_808567.html#s223863&title=kristin_leigh 

I just need to rant, thanks for listening.

A Gem

On the train and I get in my head that I need a green plaid blazer!  So as soon as I get to work I of course google my future blazer and all of a sudden I am introduced to my new obsession - yesstyle.com.  Its always super exciting when you stumble upon an amazing website so when I found this website I almost cried tears of joy.  Not only did they have a blazer that I fell in love with but they have a whole faux fur section.  I am opposed to wearing real fur, it is just cruel, but I found an amazing faux on here.  Take a look.

Up In Flames

Better late than never is my motto and although Khloe Kardashian debuted her red locks last week I just had to comment on them.  The Kardashian clan strutted down the red carpet for the People's Choice Awards last week and one Kardashian member stood out.  Khloe had a glow around her and that was her new colored tresses.  I am obsessed with red hair, for I am in the middle of contemplating my metamorphosis.  I think this look is gorgeous on Khloe, it enhances her skin tone and makes her distinguishable from her sisters.

What are your thoughts?
