How to Wear Burgundy Lipstick this Fall

One of my favorite beauty trends this fall is burgundy lipstick. It’s dramatic, it’s edgy, it’s a head turner. It’s a little bit tricky because I feel like it can look amazing or disastrous. Luckily I found some great tips from Lucky Magazine (mixed with a few I have found out through trial and error) to help you pull it off!ft_3455e4bde31ad8f1d8469a73dcfdf4b9

1. First, find the right shade for you. If you have darker skin you can go with a richer shade, closer to plum. If you have light skin, you want to stick to a more red color (otherwise you might look a little too goth, unless that’s what you were going for.)

2. You cannot make mistakes putting it on. With a dark color, it’s going to look really funny if you get it outside of your lips. You can do two things to help with this…

– Use a lip pencil. Yeah, I know this is really 90’s, but it will help and you won’t notice it once you get the color on and blended together.

– Use a lip brush. It will give you a lot more control. Especially if you have small lips and the stick is bigger than the space you’re drawing on.

3. Don’t wear heavy eye make-up. It’s too much with a dark lip too.

4. Make sure your lips are moisturized. Most lipstick looks bad if your lips are cracking, but it looks worse with a dark lip. 

5. If you wear a primer, or even just chapstick, it helps the color last longer and not fade. I’ve noticed that sometimes mine starts to fade in the middle and give me the lipliner look so you definitely don’t want that!

I hope these help! Now you just have to decide what to wear! A simple outfit that will show off the lip or a fantastic ensemble with the lip as a finishing touch?

Lucky’s 13 Most Fashionable Celebrity Brides

Lucky Magazine recently picked their 13 ‘Best Dressed Celebrity’ Brides. I thought I would re-post it because I loved the post. I like to see all of the different styles and what these women picked who basically have access to whatever they want. I love all of the older styles and to see how they transition and come back into style. I like to get ideas for what I would do.

Of course I’m obsessed with the princesses, Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton, with the all of the pomp and lace, but I kind of like the simple looks as well. I love that silhouette of Priscilla Beaulieu’s dress and the simplicity of Audrey’s.

How to Wear a Maxi Dress

Summer is coming and that means maxi dress time! For a long time I wanted to wear maxi dresses, but I was afraid to because I’m pretty short and I thought they would look really stupid on me. I didn’t want them to drag on the floor or swallow me up. Not all of us are 5’10’ and have a model figure right? As soon as I figured out how to wear them and what kind looked the best on me, I was in love and never looked back. So here are a few suggestions for those of you that have that same problem. I promise you, you’re going to want to read ahead…

If you are petite…

…empire waists are a do, because they give the illusion of height. Avoid large prints, they tend to engulf you and make you look even smaller. You can always throw on a cute heel or wedge to add height.

Mara Hoffman Corded Tank Maxi DressMara Hoffman Corded Tank Maxi Dress

If have wider hips…

…pick a dress where the bottom is a darker color than the top (colorblock). Try wearing a belt or a dress with a cinched waist to accentuate your small wait.

DKNY Colorblock Maxi Tank DressDKNY Colorblock Maxi Tank Dress

If you have an hourglass figure…

…try a fit and flar version of a maxi, with a cinched waist and a full skirt.

BCBG Constantine Pleated Maxi DressBCBG Constantine Pleated Maxi Dress

If you’re busty…

…look for a V-Neck dress, because they balance out your cleavage with your bottom half. Also, try for a thicker strap so your “friends” don’t look like they are tugging down and trying to get out.

ASOS Maxi Dress with Wrap FrontASOS Maxi Dress with Wrap Front

If you have an athletic build (muscular)…

…go for a fitted column shape, with or without sleeves. It makes you look super long and lean.

What to wear to the Kentucky Derby

Horses and High Fashion…what’s not to love about the Kentucky Derby? I would love to go one day. For now I’ll just have to settle with dreaming up lovely outfits for that one day…This year think less costumey and themed, and think pieces that you can wear all summer. Dress them up for the day of the Derby, but dress them down for every day use.

First here is a little bit of advice from Coco Rocha on how to dress for the Derby.photo

A Full Skirt – Wear this with a silk tank or a tie waist blouse. Dress it down later with a cute chambray top.

Glad Romance SkirtGlad Romance Skirt

A Sun Hat – Be sure to check out my previous post (here) on all the fun hats you can wear, but to be safe, get one that you can wear again!

Whippoorwill Floppy HatWhippoorwill Floppy Hat

A Ladylike Bag – For Derby day wear them with girly prints and pastels, and afterwards wear them as we pop of color with your outfit.

Red Valentino Bow Structured ToteRed Valentino Bow Structured Tote

A Proper Sundress – Keep it lovely and simple with minimal jewelry.

Kate Spade Celina DressKate Spade Celina Dress

Retro Sunglasses – Southern lady look.

Tory Burch Cat Eye SunglassesTory Burch Cat Eye Sunglasses

A Prim Blouse – Wear with a full skirt or with a jacket for the Derby, but dress down later with some distressed denim.

A Ballet Flat – A little preppy and much more comfortable than a pump.

Metallic Cap Toe Ballet FlatMetallic Cap Toe Ballet Flat

Classic Jewelry – Keep it simple. If it looks like an heirloom, even better.

Gingham – Polish it up for Derby day, but gingham is perfect for outfits all summer.

Coachella Style

You could argue that the people watching is just as good, if not better, than the actual music at Coachella…but for me, I like to watch the style. From sundresses and crossbody bags to cutoff shorts and crop tops there is definitely a “festival style” and it is gaining more and more popularity. coach4_large

How to get Beautiful Skin

Sometimes it’s really hard to not just go to bed at the end of the day without washing your face and doing “your routine”. I figure if you’re going to brush your teeth, you have time for your face. That’s what everyone sees when they look at you! If I never had to worry about skin problems (whatever they may be) I would die a happy woman…but alas everyone’s got something…and if you don’t, I’m sure it’s because you already have a great routine. So here are tips from some fabulous beauty bloggers shared with Lucky Magazine mixed with a few of my own! Please comment and share yours as well! You never know what might work for people.

Get Totally Smooth Skin

Carolyn Hsu, from thedailyobsession.net, gives these three tips.

1. Splurge on miracle foundation. She uses ‘Cle de Peau Beaute Refining Fluid Foundation’…not cheap, but she swears it makes her skin look radiant.

2. Use Retin-A! It turns over cells, cleanses pores, prevents lines and wrinkles, and minimizes scarring. She also said it helps with her “eye bags”.

3. Exfoliate! She uses vibradermabraision to take off dead skin cells.

I definitely like to exfoliate! It takes away all the left over yuck on your face and makes it glow! (see next section for this as well). I  use a Clarsonic Brush to do this and it works great for me! I also recommend Fresh ‘Sugar Face Polish’ as well. (Fresh has a polish for your lips, face, and body! I love them! See this post for more from Fresh!)Fresh Sugar Face PolishClarisonic Brush

Get a Healthy Glow

Ann Colville Somma, from cultofpretty.com, has two great ways to do this!

1. Exfoliate with baking soda. Mix it with a little water – it’s not too grainy or too light, and it’s cheap!

2. Vitamin C = glowing skin. She recommends Garnier ‘Skin Renew – Dark Spot Corrector’ to make your skin have an airbrushed look! (This is only $17 at most drugstores.)

I have tried the baking soda method and I totally love it. I highly recommend! I also like to get facials once a month if I have the time and money because I think the massage and peels leave your face bright and healthy looking. I recommend a Lactic Peel, because it definitely leaves my face brighter and younger! It’s my favorite peel! baking-sodafacial

Here are just a few more great products that promote a fabulous glow!

– Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare ‘ Alpha Beta Glow Pads’drdennisgross-glow-pads_300

– NARS ‘Monoi Body Glow II’nars-body-glow_300

– St. Tropez ‘Tanning Essentials Anti-Ageing Face’sttropez-anti-aging_300

Stay Hydrated

Grace Atwood, stripesandsequins.com, shares her favorite products below. She says she has super dry, flaky skin, so she uses these everyday.

1. Josie Maran Argan Oil at sephora.com

2. Zelens PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads from us.spacenk.com

3. Dr. Jart + V7 Cleansing Foam at sephora.com

4. Caudalie Vinexpert Firming Serum at caudalie.usa.com

I can’t stress enough to DRINK WATER! It sounds obvious, but drinking enough water everyday keeps your body hydrated, but also your skin. It can also help reduce dark circles under your eyes as well! I totally agree with her about the ‘Josie Maran Argan Oil‘. I’ve posted about this before (here), but I seriously love it. You can use it anywhere on your body or for your hair also. I recently started using ‘Josie Maran’s Argan Daily Moistuirzer’ as well. I put it on every night before I go to bed and in the morning. It has SPF, which you need everyday, and it’s ultra-hydrating. For sure my favorite face lotion. If you are prone to oily skin, argan oil and this lotion is still great. You can use it just once a day, but your skin needs oil in it. Using tons of cleansing methods sometimes takes too much of the skin’s normal oil out so your body reacts and produces more. Giving it the little bit of oil everyday will reduce your skin breaking out.Josie Maran Argan OilJosie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizersafe-bottled-drinking-water

Get Perfect Pores

Eileen Dautruche, misswhoeveryouare.com, recommends using a Clarisonic Cleansing Brush (see above) and ‘Biore Combination Skin Skin Balancing Cleanser’. She uses it morning and night to clean deep into pores. It leaves your skin refreshed and results in fewer breakouts!

I use a gentle cleanser everyday followed by astringent. I have been trying a few different kinds to decide on my favorite, but it really just depends on how strong of one you need. I also use Clear Cell medicated acne lotion by Image Skin Care when I need to and do a mask once to twice a week. I’ve been using Image Skin Care line for this as well, which was recommended by the lady I go to for my facials and it’s a miracle worker! (Also see the mask recommened below..I recently tried this as well and I love it so much!

Stop Breakouts

Elizabeth Monson, from moveslightly.com, has one big recomendation.

DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE! This is one of the easiest ways to clog your pores. She recommends Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Mask (at fresh.com or sephora.com). This is the mask I was referring to above!Fresh Umbrian Clay MaskHave you ever wondered why you break out when you’re sick? This happens to me every time I get sick and I’ve been sick for like the past 5 weeks! It’s driving me nuts! When you are sick your immune system is down. Your immune system is what fights off bacteria, which is exactly what acne is…bacteria. So if you can tell you are getting sick, you may have to add a few extras to your routine or just make sure you’re being extra careful! Here is a great routine I got from Lucky Magazine as well for helping fight off breakouts!

1. Wipes – these will exfoliate physically and with a salicylic acid. Try ‘Yes to Tomatoes – Blemish Clearing Facial Towelette’. $8 at yestocarrots.com and Target stores!

2. A dual-formula leave on lotion, like ‘Mybody – Obliterate 2-in-1 Extreme Refining Solution’, $90 at lovemybody.com. This will kill bacteria, unclog pores, smooth, perfect, and doesn’t irritate your skin!

3. If a breakout does pop up, even with these great tips, try using the ‘Fresh – Umbrian Clay Face Treatment’ from above. $48 at fresh.com and sephora.com. Seriously this stuff is the best. Spot treat the area and watch the bacteria killer work!
