Put away your lipstick girls- this season it’s all about eyes!
During the autumn/ winter 2014 season, I noticed that the stained lip is out, and the bare mouth is in!
This fashion season the focus is on eyes- but not just any eye makeup. Funky eye makeup!
From liquid latex applied to the lids at Dior, to extra-long false lashes at Rochas and Gucci, designers turned their attention to eye make-up when creating their season’s catwalk beauty looks.
The ever-present natural look remained popular on the runways as well, but this time with a healthy, sporty vibe – partnered with naturally wavy, tousled hair – or with clever sculpting and definition for a perfected take on the bare-faced look.
In regards to hair, this season the ballerina bun made it’s triumphed return to the spotlight.
However cornrows made an unexpected appearance at Alexander McQueen, Marchesa and DKNY. 
This autumn/ winter 2014 season is all about the natural when it comes to hair and makeup. So take a break from the flawless-face, and perfect hair. Keep it simple, but with lots of personality.
Below are some looks straight from the runway.
Take a risk and try one of these looks, and rock it out with confidence!

If Jennifer Lopez struggles with self esteem issues….
J.Lo sat down for an interview with E! News’ yesterday in New York and she bared her soul.
Jennifer opened up about a few topics from her new memoir “True Love”.
In the interview Jennifer shared how she has realized over the years that being in a relationship is no substitute if a girl isn’t in love with herself first and foremost.


“I would describe the woman I am today as a work in progress, a ‘WIP’!” Lopez smiled. “And this was the beginning of what I think is going to be a life-long journey of being content and happy with myself.” -Jennifer Lopez


Jennifer also confesses in her memoir how Ben Affleck crushed her soul, and destroyed her dreams when he called off their wedding.
“My heart was torn out of my chest” -Jennifer Lopez
Although Jennifer has millions of fans all over the world, J.Lo admits that she used to feed into all the negativity and ended up assuming that no one liked her.
“We have a tendency to focus on the negative and I let that work on my self-esteem,” Lopez said. “I was always thinking that people didn’t like me, they just hated me…It’s such a ridiculous notion, we tend to do this to ourselves.”- Jennifer Lopez
I applaud Jennifer’s honesty, she has a lot of courage.
Jennifer is a person struggling with low self esteem, and poor self image.
Many celebrities suffer from self esteem issues, as well as mental issues. This is very common.
If you suffer from self esteem issues your not alone. Take solace in knowing that even the biggest celebrities in the world suffer from poor self image. 
If your having a difficult time,  find help, and talk to someone. 
Remember that the greatest love of all is the love you have for yourself!

If I had a “Badgirl” alter ego, her name would be Rihanna, and she would only do Rihanna-type things!
Ms. Rihanna Fenty Rocks!
I love that Rihanna lives her life openly and free. She is not concerned about what people think of her!
Ms. Fenty lives life to the fullest without shame or modesty! 
Every woman should incorporate a little Rihanna into their lives. A bit of bold confidence looks good on every woman!
I have a little Riri in me, and I’m not ashamed to say it! 
In Rihanna’s new editorial for Esquire U.K. Magazine she does not disappoint.
Riri exudes confidence and poise, while looking playfully sexy in each shot.
