the doll make up trend continues...


as seen in an airport departure area duty free section. make-up brand is MAC.

might me a cross over or a continuation with the burlesque revival - not too sure.

but i've not seen anyone _actually_ wear it like this....

Actually, while I haven't seen the eye makeup anywhere locally at my end, I have seen some young (college-age) women at my end sporting the lips and blushed cheeks. It seems to be a trend to have the matching lips and cheeks with the blush more to the side than up front.

Of course I also hear online too that a trend is starting with teens and young women: a trend towards wearing lipgloss in the place of other makeup, such as blush...but I haven't seen it happen as yet. I think this is partly because some lipglosses are too sticky to really work anywhere else but on lips.

But yes, at least on the lone prairie where I am, the young women are wearing higher heels like they have been all year...and they do have the lips and cheeks going if not the eyes. :)

I was walking in town today and one of the more expensive shoe shops had various styles of stilettoes in black but also primary solid colours - specifically deep glossy pink.

So there's definately a trend there.

Update:

I am not sure where else to post this, so please pardon me if this is a bit of a drift....

I was out and about running errands yesterday. Saw more ladies with the makeup going on (at least the lips and matching side-blushed cheeks), and a few more wearing heels...

And I spotted another trend, well, at least among women of color...

The hair. Seems curls, and not just any curls but big, doll-like, almost EGL styled *ringlet* curls, are in style....

Now if only we could make this catch on a bit with *everyone* and not just have it be an "ethnic" thing, whatever that means. No offense meant, I'm just saying the hair is cute and that *everyone* who can try it should...

(pulls foot furiously out of mouth) Carry on. :p
