For orange that is… This color is giving me everything for the end of summer! Bold orange on the nails or lips is a fabulous trend for our last few summer moments. I’m especially loving the natural glowing skin with a matte (or semi-matte) orange on the lips. For a great lipstick to fit the bill check out the usual suspects; MAC, NARS and MAKEUP FOREVER just to name a few. All in all, this look gets both thumbs up from The Beauty Maven.
So, guess who’s back in her home “town”! Already, I have been inundated with the sounds and smells of home, had an incident and gone to an amazing (CosmoMag) event… and I’ve been here two days! Stay tuned for the reports on what the locals are actually wearing in the east coast mecca of fashion and beauty. By the way, the Natural Movement is rampant out here!! #ILoveIt. I’ve seen braid outs, twist outs and full-on ‘fros (of all sizes) galore out here! Expect a story on the Natural Movement soon as well as some new product reviews.
That’s all for now, Mavenettes, but there’s lots more to come!

I know I reblogged out this a week ago but HauteCoffee.us just recently did a fab write-up that really goes in on this amazing item. #WhatWillTheyThinkOfNext
Inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting, Eyelashes blend an element of traditional culture with contemporary design.
Intricately cut and delicately pretty, Eyelashes
are now available in 11 styles, each infused with symbolic meaning rooted in Chinese culture:
Peacock: auspicious and lucky days
Horses: symbolic of success
Peony: for happiness and good fortune
Peach blossom: a symbol of love and romance
Butterfly: free, beautiful and sensitive
Clown: bring the whole happiness
Unique & expressive Eyelashes come in two sizes: accentuate the corners of your eyes with the smaller lashes for a subtle daytime look, or make a statement with the full lashes for a special occasion.
Not yet sold in the US, for this is a UK fan fav… visit one of my fav “Haute” site www.ASOS.com for your pair of Paper Lashes.
