Color is a huge chart topper this summer and the trend is known as Orange Crush. Shine like a diamond with bright, beautiful lips! Go on…be brave. We dare you!

DIY orange crush lips:

  1. Line your lips with a bright pink liner.
  2. Paint your pout with a matching shade of lipstick.
  3. Make a statement by coloring just the center of your lips with bright orange lipstick. The contrast is eye-catching.

Bare, beautiful faces are parting the clouds this spring—case in point, the radiant Sienna Miller at this year’s Golden Globes or Calvin Klein’s Spring collection at New York Fashion Week. The all-natural look is huge this season, and getting that glow—for those of us who aren’t fresh off the plane from vacation—is magic made easy with our team of amazing stylists.

Fall/Winter Makeup Trends 2012

23 Nov

Fall and winter are my favorite times of year when it comes to makeup and fashion. Just because the temperatures are dipping, doesn’t mean you can’t warm things up with a hot look. This year I noticed that some of the traditional makeup trends are traditional no more!

When you think of the holiday season, you think bright, bold red, especially on the lips. This year, there’s a new color in town: black cherry. The latest shade is a red so deep that it looks black. While the hue maintains its red roots, it has a dark, mysterious, romantic twist. It seems that the Twilight crew started a new trend for the season.

If you’re craving this vampy shade, try MAC Hang Up or Dolce & Gabbana The Lipstick in Ultra. Celebrities like Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth are already smitten with the reinvented red pout. Make sure to apply the lipstick from the tube to get the most out of the color. Brush on a little bronzer as well to avoid looking washed out. Read the rest of this entry »

If I had to choose a character to be from Sex and the City, I would be Carrie Bradshaw. Hands down. Just like her, my love for shoes has become quite the fetish. As I cruised the Resort 2012 Collections on the Internet seeking the perfect footwear, everything that popped up featured bold, beautiful colors. The runways were full of life and one of the colors that stuck out in my mind was a beautiful orange. It looks like it’s going to a be bright spring.  Read the rest of this entry »
