Got a favorite nail polish color?

This is the time of year where dark nail polishes start showing up on everyones nails. Some do not base the time of year on when they should wear a color. Which is pretty cool, used to be you stop wearing white after labor day but that so called fashion rule is pretty much forgotten.
This is the year for purple, from amazing purple eye shadow sets, Gabrielle Faust by Overall Beauty is a great example of that. (order any color get one free till 9/23/10) just add the color to comments when ordering from

Nail polish by BB Couture this year has two amazing purples for this fall season. Have you checked out Carla and Michael yet from the Infamous Lovers collection yet? Now that is two beautiful shades of purple! No matter what we all got our favorite colors of nail polish.
Why do we like one color over the other? Why when we look to buy new nail polishes we always seem to come home with the same? Never the same shade but usually the same color. (green lover here) that my friends is your question to think about as you view all the pretty colors of polishes you have , or desire.

How To Wear Dark Eye-Shadow

Eyeshadow, when applied properly, can enhance, or even change, the shape of the eye. By applying dark eyeshadow you can create depth and add drama for an amazing evening look. By using the following techniques, you can apply dark eyeshadow with ease and avoid looking like a serious fashion “don’t”.

Before beginning, you will need the following supplies:

~ The makeup basics: foundation, concealer, eye brightener, highlighting powder and Black Magic mascara, Magic Lash
~Your favorite brand of black eyeliner (opt for the pencil, not liquid)
~An angled eyeshadow brush
~Dark eyeshadow of your choice
~Light and shimmery eyeshadow

To begin, you will need to apply your foundation, concealer, eye brightener, highlighting powdered and your other makeup basics before applying your eyeliner and eyeshadow. Usually, eyeliner is applied after applying eyeshadow, if you want to create a smoky look, start with the black eyeliner before adding eyeshadow. Create a line that starts at the outer corner of your eyelid and work towards the end of your lashes. Make sure to work as near to the lash line as possible.

Next, you will need to use an angled eyeshadow brush to apply your dark eyeshadow, apply it directly over the eyeliner and gently work it in with the brush to smudge the eyeliner. Ensure that the edges and the entire length of the line is well blended.

After applying the eyeshadow, blend gradually up your eyelid to the crease and work the powder into your skin. After blending, apply a light white or cream shimmery eyeshadow above the crease up towards the eyebrows. By adding a light and shimmery eyeshadow, you will make your eyes pop.

Apply your eyeliner once again. This time start at the outer corner of the lid, starting just beyond and above the inner corner of the eye. Then apply eyeliner to the bottom lid as well and smudge the lower line as well.

Complete your look by adding curling your eyelashes and applying mascara. Adding Magic Lash will really bring out the true Diva in you. Dark eye shadows are not for the meek, but anyone with a little practice and pull it off!

Hands of Hope by BB Couture

When there is a great need or a desperate time in the lives of others far away from us, we wonder what can we do to help? Its only human nature to want to help others. There are thousands of relief efforts taking place to assist the Haitians during this desperate time in their lives. Our effort to raise $5,000.00 may seem small in comparison, but we feel that every contribution combined can make an enormous difference in helping the children and other survivors of this disaster, so that they may once again enjoy the beauty of their nation. The news coming out of Haiti is filled with extreme tragedy, but with everyone’s help, we can turn this into a story of hope and triumph. Hands of Hope, an exclusive polish collection from BB Couture, was designed with that thought in mind.
