Glitzburgh Glam: Eye Rock

16 Feb

In my recent Birchbox, I received a sample of Eye Rock eye tattoos.

These particular ones were 4 different variations of “cat-eye” inspired stick-ons for that hard-to-achieve “winged” eyeliner look.

They are fairly easy to use – – it’s basically a peel-and-stick situation — but, I did find it rather difficult to align with my eye shape. There’s the option to trim them once they’re on, but, let’s be honest – me, and scissors near my eyeballs; not a good idea.

I think that having a friend or makeup artist apply them would be a great idea, and, though most of the styles aren’t for everyday wear, they are pretty fun for a night out on the town, to accentuate a costume, or, if you just feel like being extra edgy and dramatic one day.

Here’s the look I attempted:

I can’t wait to try the rest! For more information on Eye Rock, check out http://www.nailrock.com/eye-rock — the company also does awesome nail tattoos which I hope to try next.

Glitzburgh Glam: Mila Kunis is the (gorgeous!) New Face of Christian Dior

5 Jan

The beautiful Mila Kunis is the newest face of Christian Dior, one of the most elegant and trusted names in fashion.

Her exquisite first ads will be for the Miss Dior handbag and were shot by renowned photographer Mikael Jansson. They’ll debut internationally in Asian and European editions of Vogue, Elle, and Madame Figaro in mid-January, with appearances in US media towards the end of the month. Kunis is joining a long list of fabulous celebrities to represent the luxury brand. Other faces of Dior include Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Sophie Marceau, Jude Law, Eva Green, and Sharon Stone. Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor was also a huge fan of Dior dresses and fragrance.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Dior,” Mila Kunis said in a statement. “The brand is iconic in so many ways. It defines fashion, elegance and sophistication.”

So true. And for that, Kunis is a perfect fit with her sexy yet classic look.

Enjoy some images from the campaign, below.

 

 

Glitzburgh Glam: Lady Gaga, Best or Worst Dressed? -By Natalie DeBarto, Intern

28 Dec

When it comes to Lady Gaga, it’s impossible to be shocked by her outfits. After all, she did strut the stage is an outfit made of raw meat, and nothing can beat that on the shock meter. It seems this year she has been voted at the top and the bottom of the outfit pole. Sometimes she’s put together and fashionable, and other times she’s, well, covered in meat. Here’s the best and worst of Lady Gaga:

Best:

**Even though the character was annoying, Gaga looked great in the outfit!

Worst:

Lady Gaga definitely has more good outfits than bad, and her unique sense of fashion is changing the industry. Who knows, maybe the fashion of 2012 will include studded platforms, and meat dresses. Fashion is an ever changing world.

Glitzburgh Glam: Prada Headphones – Listen to Music in Style!

22 Dec

If you have $595 to spare, you can listen to music in style with the new Prada headphones.

It isn’t a new concept – some of the Beats by Dr. Dre are pretty stylish (see: Lady Gaga Heartbeats) and we accessorize and brand everything else (Michael Kors iPhone wallets, Juicy Couture and Kate Spade phone cases, even diamond-encrusted contacts, and Dolce & Gabanna eyeglasses) so why NOT rock some designer headphones?

What do you think — are they worth the money or just a waste?

Glitzburgh Glam: Bebe Bridal Line Debuting this March

22 Dec

Bebe. While, yes, it’s a mall store, it definitely is a mall store with a whole lot of style, while still being affordable — and this is exactly why it appeals to so many. Unfortunately, as of late, they’ve become more well-known for their “comfy” clothing and animal-print clubwear than their more chic and sophisticated pieces. This is why they are re-branding and launching an upscale bridal line come March 2012. The line will feature “dramatic yet tasteful” silhouettes for the modern bride.

“Project Runway” runner-up and fan favorite Rami Kashou will be at the head of Bebe’s bridal collection. Another bonus? The price. With today’s economy, brides-to-be are trying to scrimp and save where they can. No one wants to get a sub-par bridal gown, but lately many budget-friendly AND nice wedding gowns have hit the market, as evidenced by Disney’s Princess collection, as well as the Vera Wang for David’s Bridal collection, replicas of the Kate Middleton / Alexander McQueen dream gown, and even a replica of Twilight Breaking Dawn’s Bella Swan gown for Alfred Angelo. (Which was, BTW, to die for! – – Pardon the pun.)

Bebe will just be the next step in affordable bridal wear, falling right in line with Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters’ launch of BHLDN and the brands listed above.

This collection  also shows that Bebe is maturing as a brand, and upping the ante as far as taste goes. Would you wear a Bebe wedding dress? Do share! Leave us a comment and let us know.

Congratulations to Britney Spears: Brit Brit and beau Jason Trawick are Engaged

16 Dec

“OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo” read a tweet from Britney Spears this morning.

Last night, her boyfriend (now fiancé) Jason Trawick proposed to Spears in front of her two boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

“Yes, we are engaged,” Trawick said, saying he’s “over the moon” and so is Britney.

 The couple had been talking marriage for a long time. Spears has had two unsuccessful marriages, but feels that Trawick is “the one” for her. He has really been a stable, positive force in her life. Trawick worked with famed jewelry designer Neil Lane to come up with Britney’s “dream” engagement ring – a bauble that reportedly features a 3-plus carat round stone and pave diamonds.
So congratulations to Britney Spears! I hope that media outlets will let her enjoy this happy time with her future husband and her loved ones, and here’s hoping that this marriage is a long, happy one filled with many good memories to come.
Britney recently celebrated her 30th birthday, and her most recent album and coinciding tour, “Femme Fatale” was one of the most successful of 2011, and has been critically touted as her best work yet.
