Lush Lashes & Pink Lips Inspired by Betsey Johnson Spring 2012 RTW!

When you’re witnessing a Betsey Johnson runway show at Fashion Week, especially among the likes of fearless fashion pioneer Nicki Minaj, you know you’re in for a no-holds-barred treat. And the Spring 2012 RTW runway show did not disappoint with its lingerie-inspired pieces, patent leather details, cheeky prints (what’s a Betsey show without cartoon skulls?), and of course, in-your-face punchy makeup that reminded us of a modern pin-up girl gone wild… or just plain Betsey-fied! Doll-like fringe-y fake lashes with glittery silver liner gave the models the perfect naughty-but-nice doe-eyed look (but still with plenty of edge), while glossy neon pink lips stood out to even the bloggers back in the nosebleed seats! If you’re gutsy when it comes to makeup and aren’t afraid to try out the amped-up coquettish look inspired by the Betsey Johnson runway, look no further! Wear them together for a high-fashion night-out look, or go slightly more subtle by channeling Betsey-inspired doe eyes or alternatively, stand-out luscious pink lips!

Quick Weekend Recap

Hey everyone…

This weekend was super busy for me! I went to the Stila Warehouse Sale on Saturday morning (early morning!!), and then booked it over to Topanga Mall to meet the one and only Napoleon Perdis! He did my makeup and I learned some nifty techniques.

So, I was planning on some awesome posts complete with tons of photos…except my memory card had other plans. I know I’ve tweeted about this, but for those who don’t follow me on Twitter, my card corrupted itself and all of the picture files were damaged. I am investigating a free software to repair jpegs headers, but I haven’t found something yet. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know! I will work on that for the next couple days. If it’s looking like the photos are a lost cause, I’ll go ahead and do the re-cap posts without them (*weep*).
