Halloween Must-Have

Hi girls,
Would you believe I had yet ANOTHER baby shower this past Saturday (that's me and Sunshine, getting snuggly at the festivities)? That brings the total to three. I now feel like I should be enjoying a shower in my honor every weekend. Tabitha? 1969? Schanina? Where are my SYB Babe regulars? Is there such a thing as an online shower? I'm totally kidding. Anyway, my last and final shower was gorgeous! My two aunts and darling mommy threw this one for all my DC relatives, and it was a cozy, delicious affair replete with Creole faves like meatpies (courtesy of Laur) and jumbalaya (thanks to Brownie). Since I'm prone to gravitate towards little girls in family settings, however, I spent much of the time talking to my eight-year-old cousin, Aliyah, about her Halloween costume (she's undecided). Which brings me to today's beauty recommendation...

Okay, so we all know that when women get dressed up for Halloween, it's always the "sexy" version of whatever character we choose. Sexy Cat, Sexy Witch, Sexy Jo Biden, etc. No matter what you're costume, I've always believed that a slutty getup calls for the falsest of false lashes. The bigger and zanier the better. They just bring the whole fantasy-time look home, wouldn't you agree? Every Halloween, I have to wear one of Makeup Forever's Eyelash Strips ($14, each). They come in every style imaginable, from a demure Audrey Hepburn fringe to an feathered, be-glitterd explosion of fuschia. Don't be scared, ladies...this is the only time of the year it's okay to channel your inner Divine! And they're super-easy to put on, too. First, do your eye makeup--everything but the mascara. Then, dab a little eyelash glue on the back of your hand, run the strip through the glue (make sure it's evenly coated), and then place the strip along your natural lash line. Make sure you get it as close to your lashes as is humanly possible. Pres with your fingers for about twenty seconds, and voila! You're Tyra at panel!

PS...I couldn't wait to call your attention to the launch of a totally unique and thrilling new site for the rabid product junkie,
BeautyFix. Here's how it works: Every quarter, a panel of industry experts (yep, I happen to be one of them) picks out the hottest products in the land...and if you're a subscriber, you get the entire, full-size collection of faves sent to you in a darling makeup kit. It's already gotten tons of attention--WWD just covered the launch in glowing tones--so get your subscription on, today!

Tia...you look positively radiant. I am so happy for you and your hubby.

I had three showers when I was having my oldest son. One in NYC given by my mom and BFF for the family. One at work given by my co-workers and one in Philly given by my friends. It's a reflection of you and the people that love you. Enjoy all of the attention!

Just know that when it comes time to babysit, they all disappear like GHOSTS. LOL

I am so afraid of false lashes. I think I have an eye glue phobia. I need an intervention.

And yes, I am up for an online shower. Should we coordinate? What do we wear? :)

that is such a peaceful looking photo of you guys. You're little girl is going to be so beautiful when she grows up with both your looks!

Online baby shower? sign me up!

How do you take out the lashes after it's all said and done? I've never put on false eyelashes before.

lol..I've been shaking my beauty on the go lately (aka traveling a lot for work). I'm soooo excited for you and Adam! Time is flying, our little SYB sister will be here soon. I would squeal but that would disturb the baby

There's a way to do just about everything virtually these days. We could totally do an online shower. The trouble is that we would probably all buy you nothing but beauty gifts, and the point of the shower is to get stuff for the baby :)

That's a really great pic. One for the mantle!

1969, I'm scared of false eyelashes, too. Which is sad-because I desperately need them. It's not the lashes-it's taking them OUT.

tia, what a darling picture of all three of you. :) definitely belongs in a frame!

this is a tad random, but has anyone seen usher's trading places video? i couldn't concentrate on anything but the gorgeous video chick's (seriously. where do these girls come from?!) eyelashes. they are INSANE. she could have poked usher's eye out with those things.

Tear...Tia didn't name me as one of her regulars (this is shy couldn't figure out the "create profile" option to post with my name cause I don't use any of those providers listed)! LOVES the online baby shower idea; 1969, tabitha, and schanina just let me know if you need me to do something! Pic is AMAZING! BTW can't remember if I told you Tia but the Clinique exfoliator you reccommended to me in an email a few nmonths ago works wonders so thanks!

人間の生活のなかで伝わってきた風俗習慣には様々なものがある五反田 風俗そのなかでも国や社会によって抑圧されているものがあるのも事実である。これらは本来、時代によって形が変わることがあっても、池袋 風俗その根本が消えるということはないはずである錦糸町 風俗が、長い社会的抑圧によって表面的には消滅してしまったように思えるものもある。ときには、風俗それらの存在を認め尊重することも、上野 風俗文化先進国として、地域民族習俗の綿密な検証、立川 風俗伝統的な思考様式を理解することにつながるのではないだろうか。
