Man Bag Monday: Givenchy Doberman Nightingale Tote

Considering how aggressive and violent the famous, recently reissued Givenchy Rottweiler Antigona Tote is, you’d expect that the men’s version would be even more snarly and vicious. Alas, that’s not the case – the pup that graces the Givenchy Doberman Nightingale Totedoesn’t look overly perturbed by our presences or concerned that we might enter his yard. I bet he even likes tummy rubs. (I mean, don’t we all?)

There’s a certain amount of subversion to giving women a bag with an aggressive, agitated animal on it and making the men’s version much less violent. I’m sure that fact wasn’t lost on Givenchy – after all, Riccardo Tisci has emblazoned bags with Bambi and the Virgin Mary, so he’s not opposed to some not-so-subtle subversion. I’ve seen plenty of fashion-savvy dudes appropriating the women’s version of this design for their own purposes, and there’s no real reason it shouldn’t be a unisex bag; the Antigona tote is a simple, classic shape with little adornment, and the black background is about as neutral as it gets. By that logic, this bag could go either way as well, and Givenchy fans of both genders are known to borrow liberally from across the rack. Are you looking to snap one up? Buy through for $287.

10 Precious Makeup Hacks for Hooded Eyes

The average woman is unhappy with the way her face is structured, from a too large nose to a too small lip line. The eyes especially draw much criticism, as the beauty standards are usually way too different from the reality of it all. While the eyes of the Japanese are thin slits set against their high cheekbones and smaller nose, anime characters (the Japanese style of cartoons) almost always have extremely large eyes, with full lids and long lashes. In order to achieve this look of beauty, makeup hacks are used to enlarge those peepers and carve out new bone structures that are a lot softer and longer than the regular rounder looks of the Asian populations. This disconnect between what is considered beautiful and what one truly looks like exists for every culture and not just the Asian populations. In either case, the eyes are the first place anyone looks and the one part of the face that requires the most attention to look positively mesmerizing; not that they weren’t stunning in color and shape in the first place. These 10 useful makeup tips and hacks for hooded eyes can be your ultimate guide to creating a sultry look for when it comes to making eyes look bigger.

The goal with eye makeup is more often than not to open it up and lift the ends, which often means that you give it an almond shape with an elongated cat eye. You should do it in such a way that looks natural for you, suiting your natural eye shape. For hooded eyes, there are many makeup hacks that can be utilized in order to really have it appear the best it can be. Hooded eyes feature an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease area and essentially makes the lid look much smaller. It is really easy to tell that you have hooded eyes and as such you should look up different tricks to applying the makeup in order to open up the look and give you a bit more of a sexy Angelina Jolie style visage. Mind you, being seen to have bedroom eyes is definitely a compliment in itself, sultry in design, even if it is a pain to put on the much needed makeup before heading out for the day. The fact that it looks heavy and partially closed might be appealing in the art of seduction, but the amount of time it takes to get the liner and shadow put on correctly certainly can become a frustration.

Tip #1: Always use a pencil that can be well sharpened. What many women with hooded eyes have realized is that even if they find an awesome pencil to use on their eyes, soon the tip goes blunt and self-sharpeners do not provide the same effect as a regular sharpener would in this case.

Tip #2: Careful when using liquid liners. Because you have hooded eyes that hand over the crease of your lids, chances are that if you open your eyes without waiting a few minutes for each to dry first, you are going to be facing one hell of a mess. If you have the patience to keep a single eye open for about 3-4 minutes until you are sure the liner won’t smudge, and then repeat the procedure on the other side, then you should definitely opt for the liquid versions.

Tip #3: Drugstore liners will probably drive you crazy thinking that your eyes are eating up the liner and the shadow you place on it if you buy generic brands. Opt for labels, which are meant for the hooded eye and which will stay in place all day instead of disappearing within the hour. Also, just stick to waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliners and mascaras.

Tip #4: Avoid using darker eyeshadows over the entirety of the lid as this will only add to the heavy effect and close up the eyes instead of opening them to achieve that almond shape.

Tip #5: If you are using a highlighter on the brow bone, keep it minimal, just a touch of light to bring over the focus without accentuating the hooded look. Furthermore, highlight shades over the lid and just make the hood look even more hooded, changing the appearance of the eyelid for the worse and not towards the better. Instead, apply to the brow bone and along the upper lash line, as well as moving the brush down towards the inner corner of the lower lash line. This will help brighten the eyes immensely.

Tip #6: You want to draw the focus upward, which means that diffusing darker shadow over and out past the crease is a good idea while you tightline against the top waterline to intensify the look and enlarge the eye shape, all the while thickening the lash base. It’s not much you put on, but just enough to create the illusion of larger eyes with thicker lashes that do not disappear under the lid fold. It may seem scary at first to work so close to the eyeball with the tightline against the waterline, but it definitely gets easier with time.

Tip #7: Your mid-tone shade should start from the outside corner base of the upper lash line so that the color is brought up over the entire hooded area, bringing the eye forward and pushing the lid away with this trick. Blend the mid-tone into the highlighted areas so it looks as natural as can be and apply the color to your lower lash line for better results.

Tip #8: Contour shades can be used starting from the base of the lash line and brought into the hooded area, layering over the mid-tone shade, but certainly not coming up all the way. Halfway line is perfect. Define the lower lash line with the contour shade as well, starting from the outer corner and moving your way in, blending along the way. Hooded eyes do best when the top and bottom lash lines are well defined.

Tip #9: Try flipping the cat-eye upside down! As funny as it sounds, a proper cat eye gets really hard to do with hooded eyes, especially with the tricky eyelid creases and the folds that really get in the way. Gel eyeliner is better than liquid in this case, while pencils and shadows used with tight brushes are the most preferable.

Tip #10: Honestly, you can play around with bold colors without fear if you have hooded eyes. It just makes for a more dramatic effect when you have on an electric blue or a bright fuchsia for added measure. Even you can experiment with the mascara to find the color tones that suit you best according to eye color and skin tone. Work with it until you know that it is the big eyes that are seen by those, who pass you by and not the small versions hidden under hooded skin.

Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag Review

Two of the most recognizable and loved models Chanel ever created are the Chanel jumbo classic flap and the medium flap. They come as diverse as it can, with a lot of different colors, leathers and chains. They are very easy to sell and often out of stock so don’t be very pick and make up your mind quickly about the style you like the best.

You already know that I am very fastidious when it comes to the purses I choose to buy or to wear. For me the jumbo size of this model is perfect. It has just enough space to carry all my stuff without having to worry about not getting something important with me because of the lack of room. I consider the medium size of the Chanel classic flap too small, there is just enough space inside it to carry only the essentials and maxi flap is too large for me. The jumbo one is just between these two last versions and it perfectly satisfies my needs.

chanel classic jumboThe colors you can choose from for the Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag are very diverse: black, beige, white, pink (rarely), green, silver, light blue, brown and red. The most desired one is the black in caviar, but unfortunately it gets often out of stock, so you should be prepared to get another color, another size or even another model if the one you decided for is not available anymore. You shouldn’t be sad though; Chanel has a lot of gorgeous bag models to offer.

Even if I am not a huge fan of black purses, I certainly understand the reason why people go for this option. The black bag can accessorize any outfit, it just looks great on anything you decide to wear and if you don’t like it, or you just decide to replace it with a new model there is a huge market out there and you can re-sell it to someone else.

The chains of the Chanel jumbo classic flap can be gold or silver. I don’t think that you should take this decision following the crowd, if you like silver you should go for silver and if you wear gold then gold is the color you should choose for the chains. Some people are asking which one is the most popular. They both are, you should just pick the one that fits you best. Chanel doesn’t change the chains, so if you decide for silver or gold that will be the color of the chains for your bag.

One more aspect you have to take into consideration when you but the Chanel jumbo classic flap is the type of leather. This bag comes in two versions: lambskin and caviar. The lambskin is just gorgeous, so soft, chic and with such a royal appearance. But it is not a very durable material, it gets scratched very easy. On the other hand the caviar looks great; it is a resistant material but is not as soft as the lambskin. So if you intend to buy this purse for a daily usage you should go for the caviar, if you only want to wear it occasionally just go for the lambskin.

I am sure that if you’ll buy this Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap  bag in any version you like the best you will be very happy with it. It is a gorgeous purse, one that pleases the most fastidious critics. It is very easy to wear and it has enough room for anything you need to carry with you daily.
