Spotted: beauty inspiration in the NYC subway

Beauty inspiration can strike anywhere, at any time. Today I spotted the most amazing, vibrant makeup looks in the oddest of places -- amidst the dirty tile walls and concrete floors of the New York City subway. Take a look: 

I got so excited when I saw these stunning Maybelline ads, which lit up the otherwise drab subway station with life and color. The last one is my absolute favorite. With Halloween coming up, it would be a perfect makeup look for anyone dressing up in a "Candyland" or fairy costume. 

After seeing these ads, I'm ready to make a beeline for the drugstore to check out the Maybelline section!

  5. Hey ladies! Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm glad you like these adverts. They were huge in real life - like the size of the wall! I would love to find that orangey/red lip color in the second photo. What about the yellow lipstick though?? It would take some serious confidence to pull that off!

  6. Reminds me of David Bowie, so retro. ♥
