SHANY helps you live your Fashion Week

If obnoxiously colorful eyebrows aren’t really your thing…

…but you still want to look like you just stepped right out of Fashion Week, why don’t you take a look at the other top trends coming out of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week?

See what eye shadow is the most popular, if coral colored lips are still in, or if stars on your face have become a thing (thanks Tommy Hilfiger - no really, google it) as your favorite designers show off what they have planned for Spring 2015 then find out how to get their looks for less with Shany Cosmetics!



Let your clothes do the talking with sleek hair and a fresh faced look with lightly bronzed cheeks, classically bold lashes, a subtle pop of pink on the lips, and undeniably strong eyebrow game. Embrace the spirit of minimalism and simplicity from Fashion Week with Shany’s mini-masterpiece set to help create your runway ready look:


In a big move from uber bright eyeliner and gem toned eyeshadow that was popular over the summer, designers like Roberto Cavalli and Donna Karan  LOVE this smokey bronze eye and you will, too! You don’t have to be a supermodel to get this look - it’s easier than you think! Just use Shany’s eyeshadow palette created specifically for this look:



Remember that pop of pink we mentioned? Carolina Herrera certainly does (she remembers that undeniably strong eyebrow game, too). No matter how outrageous or understated your eyeshadow is, critics agree that a berry lip is the perfect addition to any look, day or night! Shany can help you get that pop of color with our Fairytale Kiss Lip Gloss sets! Not only do you get that fabulous bright pink, you get a more understated baby pink, coral, and more! Grab one for yourself or a friend here:

This year though, some designers (like Marc Jacobs) went for a newer, more radical makeup look:


You’d barely recognize Adriana Lima like this! The “natural” look is in and every girl likes to go “nude” sometimes right? ….Okay maybe we don’t want to look like Joey Ramone everyday, but Shany has you covered for every other occasion!

We don’t get the option to wear Jason Wu and Betsey Johnson everyday, but we DO get the chance to have some fun and look stunning with our makeup! You can get that right off the runway look in no time with your Shany products if you visit our website today:

Whether you go bold, go bronze, or go buff, Shany is here to help you remember to live every week like its Fashion Week. No, wait, that’s Shark Week….how about both? Both. Both is good.

But the best part is that SHANY can help you organize and travel with your makeup, too! Check out this fabulous case:


Until next time, get out there and be your own fashion and makeup icon!

Just Say NO to Plain Nails!

Honestly—who out there really likes plain nails? They’re just so…boring. Zooey Deschanel definitely knows what she’s talking about.  

First up: nautical nails! It’s all aboard with this fun striped look! What do you think? Is this a possibility for a weekend look?

Wow! More nautical nails! This one incorporates a sparkly blue and an off-white for a bold result. Are you into stripes?


For this next one, I’ll we can say is: it’s about time! Offering four color options in a go-to green palette, this nail look is really something great. Do you wear your nails in different colors like this?


We really love using stripes in our nail looks. What about you? As long as you make your nail looks HOT, wear that polish the way you want!

Get Those Smokey Eyes

Let’s hear it for the super-sexy smokey eye, a look that can add mystery and intrigue to any ensemble.After all, a little more smokey-ness can never hurt your look. Would you add more or less smoke to this winged one?


Shhhhh. You’ve found out our secret. Don’t tell anyone! We love smokey eyes. Just look at this one that really makes those baby blues pop. Where could you wear a smokey look?


Why not work a look that combines a smokey eye with coordinating lip and nail color? We love the dusky tones of the eyeshadow here. Could you see yourself wearing this on a night out?


Wow! This look takes a bold wing and mixes it with a smokey eye. What do you think? Too much or just right?


However you wear that eyeshadow—brilliantly bold or spectacularly subtle—make sure you have the right brush kit. This sexy little travel number is perfect for the makeup enthusiast on the go!



The Swingin’ 60s

Fall will be here before we know it, and that means we need to update our fall makeup looks. On many of the runways for fall 2014 were makeup looks taken right out of the 1960s. Just think of the far out looks of Twiggy, Marianne Faithful and Jane Birkin.



The 60s were all about really making the eyes pop. This was done by creating giant, baby doll lashes and winged or flicked eyeliner. But we don’t want to look too retro. Fall 2014 gives a nod to 60s mod with a 21st century modern twist.

To make the eyes the main focus, you will need to go heavy on the eyeliner. A black liquid liner will give you a classic 60s look. To make it modern, choose a bright, bold color like cobalt blue or pink, or even a metallic shade.

Make sure you add a little flick at the end of your eyeliner line to emulate the those 60s fashion icons. Or you can go super dramatic with a strong cat eye.

On the Gucci runway, makeup artists made the models’ top and bottom lashes stand out with false eyelashes. You can recreate this look yourself by using a glossy mascara that doesn’t flake or crumble.

When you’re finished perfecting your groovy 60s makeup look, make sure to store all your essentials in a Shany makeup case. We love the Mini Makeup Train Case in Golden House. It’s just the right size for eyeliner pencils, mascaras, eyelash curlers - everything you need to get this look!

Some HOT Eyeshadow Ideas for YOU

Summer is winding down, and, for some of you, that means school starts again. Don’t let that keep you from workin’ your SHANY looks anyway you want. True, this look is pretty bold, so maybe you’d rather save it for the weekend. We just love the all-over hot pink!

What about a more muted look? This one is gorgeous in green, but it’s subtle enough for school/office wear. What do you think would be the best eye color for this blended eyeshadow?

Maybe you’d rather go with a bolder blended look. This pink and gold one looks fun! But you could blend any colors you like. Just imagine all the possibilities!

You can style your looks any way you want and carry them with you. With the on-the-go studio makeup case, you have an instant makeup station wherever you are! The case is available in a classic white and a bright blue, but we just love the cheetah print!

Nail Art: Always In Season

We love some good nail art! Want to spice things up? Why not try this super-cute cherry blossom look? This delicate look uses nail brushes and dotting tools to create a result sure to brighten up your day! The super-talented Nicole at Nail Polish Wars created it for all of us to enjoy. Check out her blog entry about it!


Looking for a more surprising twist? With ethereal touches like dashes of glitter and tiny pearls, this look takes nail art to the next level. Is it for you?


We believe there’s always time for candy and manicures—in that order! For something different, check out this scrumptious swirled look. Sweet and sassy!


Our friend Nicole leaves us with one final look! With vertical stripes of color, this one makes a definite statement.  


Orange Is the New Black…Er, Red

One of the hottest makeup trends right now is the orange lip. Maybe you’re asking yourself: “can I pull this off?” YES! Not many of us can rock tangerine, true, but there are so many different shades out there. We love to look at celebrities to see how they’re wearing this trend.


With neutral eyeshadow and a peach tone blush, Emma Watson crafts the perfect look to pull off this pout. The muted eyeshadow and blush calls attention to her bold lips!  


Amber Stevens goes with all-over orange. With minimal shadow and blush, her lips take center stage in this sunset-inspired look.


Fan Bingbing lights things up with gorgeous mandarin orange lips in a matte texture. Those flirty lashes make her eyes pop, drawing even more attention to her lips. image

Most of us will finish our makeup with golden eyeshadows or other warm tones. We’ll finish our looks with  sexy black eyeliner. However, Kirsten Dunst does something great here when she pairs a demure orange lip with a cool shadow color.


If you aren’t feeling ready to take the orange lipstick plunge, why not try an orange gloss or that perfect shine? Still skeptical? Weigh your options with this our Modern Pro makeup case in perfect tangerine!


Nails Just Wanna Have Fun

Are you ready for some HOT nail looks?


Geometric nails are pretty big right now. This might be a love-it or hate-it type look… We’re diggin’ it, but what do you think about this trend?  


Summer is on its way out, but many of us are still dealing with sweltering days. Still, some us feel as if those dog days of summer will never leave! While the weather is steamy, try a look that mixes things up. After all, variety is the spice of life!


Maybe five different polish possibilities in one look is a bit much, but one polish color can get, well, a little boring. Why not experiment with your nails and create one cute design that really stands out! We love this vintage blue polish, but that glitter really makes it SHINE!


Sun? Check. Shades? Check. Hot Nails? Good to go! Let’s do this!

Last-Minute Vacation Looks

It’s almost time for many of us to go back to school, so let’s get in that last vacation (or maybe just a stay-cation)! These eye looks are sure to heat things up!


Purple and blue with a super-bold wing, this eye look promises to make you the life of the party! It incorporates false eyelashes for a one-two beauty punch. Trust us! This one’s a definite KO!


This just in! Pink and gold decided to meet up, and create this fabulous look. We just love the way the metallic shade blends it all together, and that eyeliner is HOT!


Brown-eyed beauties will rejoice with this green shadow look! Don’t let the color of your eyes dictate the color of your eyeshadow though. Just take a little bit of confidence, and mix it with that eyeshadow. You’ll totally own it!  


Perfect for the weekend, this look reminds us of sun, sand, and endless seas. Let’s plunge right into this one! It’s positively delightful! No matter how you wear your makeup…
