Beauty Squared Round-Up for August 10, 2014

Good morning lovelies!
It's time to dig into some beauty links. Are you ready?

  • Nude makeup is a big trend for fall. Here's how you can achieve it without looking cadaverous.
  • If you've worn eyeliner on your waterline, you know it can be tricky getting it to last. Makeup artist Wendy Rowe shares her tips on getting waterline liner to last as well as her favourite products for the waterline.
  • Do you have freckles? Lucky you! The rest of us need to fake them. Yes, Topshop is selling a "Freckle Pencil". Tip: an eyebrow pencil will work just as well.
  • Would you splurge on a $50 nail polish? Temptalia's review of Christian Louboutin's Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour (check out that bottle design!) may help you to decide (if you don't know already).
  • Allure's editors make their weekly picks which include a dry oil spray sunscreen, a spray lotion, and a concealer palette.
  • Did you know that eyeshadows can be used for more than just adding colour, texture and dimension to the eyelids?
  • Apparently brightly-coloured ombré eyebrows are a thing. Would you ever rock this look?
  • Sometimes classic is best. How many of these old-school beauty tricks do you still do?
  • There are countless female beauty icons, but what about some of those amazing, gender-blurring male beauty icons? Take some inspiration from Bowie, Jagger and Bolan with the help of this XOvain post.
  • Contouring is all the rage right now and many are waaaaaaaay overdoing it. I blame you, Kim Kardashian. Please, for the love of all that's highlighted and sculpted, take your inspiration from this subtle contouring method that uses concealers.
  • Beauty brands that give back, including Clarins, Lush and The Wet Brush.
  • If you've got shoulder-length or longer hair, you may want to check out this chic fake long bob hairstyle. P.S. I love the model's necklaces.
  • NARS has unveiled its ad campaign for its new Audacious lipstick line, launching September 1. What's notable about it is the model, the smouldering Charlotte Rampling, who happens to be 68 years old.
