eisforellie: Lana Del Rey for L’officiel April 2013
This is a beautiful piece. To me it represents death and happiness all in one. It represents the happiness of a bride before she walks do the aisle. Stunned by the beauty of herself but also by the fact that she’s actually going to be getting married, perhaps she is doubting her decision or maybe she’s amazed that such fortune could befall her. It’s the birth of a new life, but in doing so it’s the death of her old life. In marriage she says farewell not only to what most people consider, her freedom so to speak as being single, but to bigger things as well. She creates the death of her innocence, in marriage she starts a new life of sexual awareness and ends her old life based off of her carefree childhood and enters womanhood. Marriage is a beautiful thing, but such a beautiful thing makes us meet the death of many other aspects of our life.
The way that the pink and white roses in her veil contrast the black is like a representation of the last of her innocent fighting to stay alive. As though her youth is not ready to die just yet. The way the veil is so shear is as though she is putting all of herself out there. Her last chance to reveal herself before she is conceal behind the walls of marriage. But her dress says the opposite, as though her body is ready to embrace her new sexual awakening. Her ruby red lips add the finishing touch, in a Snow White style, when Snow White’s sexual awareness was awakened when her old life ended with the biting of the apple and awakened with love’s kiss.
I love this, it’s so natural. The lips have just such a great transition from lip to skin and skin to lip. The way that the light pinkness of the lips just fades in make you almost miss them at first, but that shine makes it stand out from the rest of the skin. And the gold compliments the skin and lips so much, it makes what one may thing almost invisible lips noticeable. As though a little gold leaf has graced itself upon the lips of an angel.
This is beautiful, most people when regarding the smokey eye look image just dark colors, but this takes it to the next level with bold colors. Starting with a light color such as a the blue against deep reds and purples will definitely make it pop. And the deep reds and purples against this skin tone just helps to radiate it even more. Not to mention the way the blue fades off into the nose line adds great contour and depth without having to add bronzer. And I love how the pink lipstick finishes off the look. The naturalness and the softness of the pink lipstick it great against the eyeshadow because it doesn’t over power it or take away from it.
They say that parsimony is the concept of conserving money, now most people would say that fashion is not a way to save money. But I think this outfit can show you how you can save money and still be fashionable.
Now here’s an outfit that at first glance may not seem so, but is in fact a very simple outfit. If you look you’ll see that it’s really just a black top. Now sure there are different types of black tops, but at the end of the day it’s just a black top. The outfit is really made from the accessories. Just a few accessories and the outfit looks much more than one may realize. Accessories like that don’t have to be excessively expensive, and paired with a simple top you can have a runway ready outfit. Now all you need now is a matching hairstyle which costs next to nothing since most of use have brushes, straighteners, and dryers already in our possession.
I haven’t done any shoes yet, but let me say, I LOVE shoes. I love the red and the gold. I think the gold adds a great touch and help make the heels more acceptable and not scream “Red hooker shoes” as much. It also helps that the heels aren’t thin as a wire, the fact that their pumps and not stilettos helps as well I feel. These are great for in the office and then out on the town. I also love that the heels aren’t symmetrical, it adds a great touch, and the way that the gold bands across the front makes it almost seem like your toes are gonna peep out.
I love this, she has nearly no make up except eyeliner, mascara, a little blush, and blood red lipstick. The netting in front of her face with the gems placed upon it does all the work and is just perfect. and it definitely draws you to her natural beauty. Even if she’s at a funeral it give a perfect, I’m mourning and torn but I’m still naturally beautiful.

I think this is a great twist on fashion. Instead of having shadow on the eyelid like you would usually the eyeshadow is above the eyelids. It definitely helps add more depth to the eyes. I think that it definitely depends on the colors you use though. They needs to work with both your skin tone and hair color.
What I love about this is that instead of using eyeliner on the bottom which makes asian eyes even smaller is that they used a metallic shadow which helps make the eyes larger. And the darkness of the shadow on top is a great contrast and color combination against the bottom. I also love how instead of only using one color the entire town they winged it off in the top outside corners with a green giving it more depth. The shadow extending to the edge of the nose also adds great depth and contour the nose as well.
I LOVE this! I don’t think enough people use orange these days. It’s a beautiful color, and sure it can be obnoxiously bright but when used in moderation and in the right spots orange can end up being The color. I this this is beautiful, just this touch of orange against such pale skin and such dark lashes, and the color just blends so nicely into the brows.
