This $4 Drugstore Liquid Liner Is Purrrrrfect For Sexy Cat Eye! Meow!

Let's be honest, the cat eye is glamorous + sexy....and yeah, this makeup look has been around for several decades now. If you consider Cleopatra's Egyptian eye makeup, then the cat eye is actually quite ancient.

And this winged eyeliner appeal has stood the test of time. At the moment, the cat-eye is STILL a hot trend. Check out Herve Leger by Max Azria and the double-lined cat-eye for Fall 2014. Purrrrrfect!

To achieve the look, you NEED black eye liner. You can go with pencil, but to create the uber cat-eye, pick up a liquid liner. The best kind to purchase is one designed like a felt tip pen.

And we have found a CHEAP, really good liquid liner that keeps you on your budget. It's LESS than $5 with tax. Come on, it's worth a try.

Even celebrity makeup artist Kristin Gallegos recommends this one:

NYC High Definition Liquid Eyeliner Extra Black ($3.99, at

It's got the right form in a convenient, pen shape with an ultra fine felt tip.

We think this is a super beauty buy!

Forget The Maxi For Now: Celebrities Wearing Lady-Like Midi Length Trend

Let the hemlines fall, just in time for Fall 2014, ladies.

Mini skirts are sexy and maxi skirts are boho chic....but right now--

It's the MIDI length that's grabbing all the attention---below the knees and hovering around mid-calves.

It's a flattering look and celebrities are HOT on the trend. Take a look at Jessica Alba + Kim Kardashian going MIDI this week.

Jessica + Kim have very different figures, and yet, the midi length works on both slender and tall and short and curvy.

We adore the midi length, and it' a nice way to get ready for the Fall fashion trend.

The midi skirt and midi dress are everywhere. We found lots of them at the popular British online boutique known as

And the prices are inexpensive with FREE shipping to the U.S.. Plus 25% off everything!

Fiona Plunge Neck Bodycon Dress ($20).

Mia Sporty Airtex Panels Midi Skirt ($24).

Bea Box Pleat Scuba Midi Skirt ($20).

Ladies are you down for the midi?

Bye-Bye Signature Red! Taylor Swift Pops In Pink Lips at TCA 2014

Singing sensation Taylor Swift ALWAYS seems to get it right when it comes to beauty + style.

The mega-star has been known for her signature, classic red lips, but at last evening's Teen Choice Awards 2014, the tall beauty knocked it out of the park with a chic, cat-eye and PINK lips!

We think Taylor looked soft, feminine and young, as she should. And her hair looked polished + pretty .

Do you want to copy Taylor's pink-coral lips?

Who wouldn't?

We found a great shade of NARS Lipstick in Niagara, a "satin pinkish coral" color. You can find it at Sephora ($26).

We like the satin finish, because it delivers a creamy, light glossy look. And it's perfect on Taylor---NOT overdone. Just right.

If we zoom in on Taylor's lovely cat-eyes, we find lots of black mascara + liner, plus what appears to be a playful, purple shadow/liner UNDER her eyes.

Of course, Taylor's complexion also looks incredible, and she is showing just a tiny bit of blush.

Would you copy this Taylor Swift makeup look?

Gwen Stefani Is Wearing These Jeans: Time To Get Your Patch On!

Is there's one celebrity who lives on the fashion edge, it's Gwen Stefani. And if this glam lady is wearing it, then the trend is HOT.
So, ladies, it's time to get your PATCH on!

Yes, patched jeans + the rolled cuff are BIG. Take a look at the proud new mama wearing her pair in a boyfriend jeans cut and black top.

Yes...a bit hobo-chic, if you will.

Check out Tommy Hilfiger's patch jeans + deep pockets for Fall-Winter 2014-2015.

Are we all gaga over the patch jeans denim craze?

Er, no. It is a wee hobo for our taste. But having admitted to that, we think dressing up the boyfriend jeans ensemble can look rather chic with some distressing. This is how we would rock it minus the patch....Or maybe just with a single patch :

You can also make your OWN patch jeans with a few strategic rips and denim patches.

We found a pair of great patch jeans on SALE at Lulu's, marked down to $62.

These are HOT---the

Flying Monkey Patch Work Distressed Cropped Skinny Jeans.

Will you wear this trend like Gwen Stefani?

Don't Bother With An Eye Cream? Then You're A Fool!

We've talked about this several times before......

Everyone NEEDS an eye cream. Please do not ignore this area of the face, because the eyes tend to show aging first.


Because the skin around the eyes  is thinner + dryer and more delicate.

In fact---if you don't own a little tub or tube of eye cream, run out and get some now!

Once you reach your 30s, you will begin to notice crow's feet around your eyes---most of it due to damage from the sun.

New York City dermatologist Eric Schweiger recently explained this frustration to Harper's Bazaar magazine:

"100% of my patients over 30 do not like the way their eyes look."

Get an eye cream stat, he advises.

And find one with retinol, which is an effective cousin to prescription Retin-A.

As Dr. Schweiger noted:

Retinol is the only ingredient proven to treat acne and prevent wrinkles.".

Amen to that.

Glow by Dr. Brandt Revitalizing Retinol Eye cream is a good one to try. ($55, at Sephora).
Research results: -
96% reported a significant reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles -
92% reported a brighter-looking eye area -
92% reported softer and smoother skin -
100% reported rehydrated skin -
100% reported perfect tolerance (no redness and no irritation)
