Autumn Spice

This fall the smoky eye gets graphic, extreme and fierce. Don’t let it be perfect – let it be a little messy. Take a high drama black eye shadow to a whole new level and be as bold as you wanna be, offsetting its depth with an intense jewel toned metallic shadow planted dead center. An eye this big demands a soft lip and a whole lotta attitude!

Put your pout front and center with a deep, dark, bold lip. Anywhere from a dense, moody berry to a profound purple, this lip is dark! Balance the statement lip with a soft brow and subtle eye.

From a soliuter corner accent to a bold stripe through the crease, eyeliner also gets graphic this season. Aim for perfection and let your outer corner liner stand out by toning down the cheek and keeping the rest of your look neutral

Eyeliner makes a big impact this fall. Eyes are ringed with liner that is then smudged and left imperfect, paired with glowing skin and a simple lip. Muss up your hair and channel your inner rocker chick!




Keep Your Lip Game Strong!

This year try layering red and gold eye shadow to make your eye color absolutely sparkle, and complete your look by turning your lipstick into a game of complimentary opposites.

Want to be a scene stealer? Fire up your look with a lip color that sits opposite to your main outfit color on the color wheel.

Crisp apple greens get feisty when paired with a bold, matte red.

Fierce orange tones bring out the best in sultry aubergines.

Autumn's burnt oranges take on a whole new life when positioned against a bold deep purple accented berry.

Create a soft surprise when wearing red. Instead of trying to match it with a red lip use a slightly pink neutral to make your lips look soft and luscious.

Effortless Chic

Summer beauty is all about keeping it simple. Heavy foundations, powdery blushes and full faces of makeup are out, a radiant, glowing complexion is in. BB creams, cream blushes and bronzing gels let you look like a fashion “it” girl who has been kissed by the sun.

Hair that looks structured is out, effortless chic is in. Let your hair shine and move in the breeze.

The key to looking fabulous this season is to refine your look down to just one thing, effortless chic.

Nothing says summer quite like beachy waves! A salt spray and a curling iron are all you need to get poolside glam. Let your skin glow and add just one thing – a fire-y red lip. Summer reds are feisty and need a pink or orange undertone to compliment your tan.

Who needs eye makeup when you’ve got a great pair of shades? A chic headscarf keeps unruly curls under control,  fresh skin and a bold tangerine pop of color on the lip makes you the queen of poolside glam.

Protect your hair from sun, surf and chlorine damage with a bright, fun swim cap.

A colorful pair of shades and a bright pink lip are all you need to complete the look and be truly effortlessly chic!

After a day spent poolside or at the beach with too much sun, you need a five minute fix to get ready for a fun night out. Neutralize any extra redness by smoothing a little gel bronzer along your cheek bones. Lipsticks in bold reds or pinks can highlight a sunburn and leave you looking like a lobster, so opt for neutral lip colors and glosses that diffuse the situation. No time to fix your hair? No problem – tie it back with a scarf or a bandana. Throw on some big earrings or stack your arm with colorful bracelets and you are looking effortlessly chic!

Hey there Luca girl! 

With Valentine’s Day being the official holiday of smooching, all eyes are going to be on your lips.

Regardless of whether you are in a relationship or whether you are single, the focus will be on your kisser.

With that in mind here at Luca Magazine we were on a mission to find the perfect lipstick for your Valetine’s pout. Red? Too obvious. Pink? Too clichéd. Super glossy? Not kiss-inviting.

We found the ultimate Valentine’s lipstick in our box of Tarte’s Tarteist Lip Paints. The shade is Fly, the most gorgeous red-crimson/raspberry you ever saw! It’s dynamic, alluring and fun. Not as intimidating as a full red, not as innocent as a light pink, this is the most chic shade of the season, and the ultimate lip shade for Valentine’s Day!

Tarte’s Tarteist Lip Paints are intensely pigmented, long wearing, and matte. Which of course makes them ideal to pucker up in….
