  • Makeup Monday: Au Natural Illuminated Beauty

    The Spring and Summer 2014 beauty spectrum is taking us from the very bold to the very natural. This new trend or "non-trend" of natural beauty has models, celebs, and street trend setters walking about with "barely there" natural painted faces. They are still wearing makeup, but this time it is only to conceal certain flaws, give extra definition to specific features, and bronze skin to give it a fresh, dewy glow!

    The Chloe model above is shown wearing MAC cosmetics and only has on the minimal. Makeup artists only used a sculpting cream to highlight her brow and cheekbones and a cream color base in bronze to give her face some little hints of color. Wow! She looks gorgeous! Perfect for a day at the beach in one of our rompers!

    Very Natural Emilio Pucci Model Very Natural Emilio Pucci Model

    "A strong girl who is naturally beautiful and doesn't need make-up," Lisa Butler said of the inspiration for the makeup of Emilio Pucci. We couldn't agree more with this philosophy. We think this beauty trend is empowering for all young women everywhere to finally embrace their own natural beauty and use makeup to accent their features instead of hiding them. The model above is only wearing MAC's face and body foundation in a shade slightly darker than her own to provide more glow, and natural shadows across the lid. The best part of this trend is not doing your hair! Use a dab of oil for frizzy strands or apply volumizing cream at the scalp and toss hair softly for beach like waves!

  • Fashion Friday: Printed Ankle Pants And Crop Tops

    Spring is in full swing and we are having so much fun with the Spring/Summer 2014 trends! What are we loving for this week's "Fashion Friday?" Flowy printed pants and an elegant crop top! The crop top is a difficult shirt to wear without looking overly provocative or sloppy, but the right top for your body plus the perfect pair of printed pants can make this an outfit to wear all weekend from afternoon shopping to an evening out to dinner with friends. A sleek jacket and an awesome pair of heels pull the outfit together for a surely show stopping look.

    Classic Solid Crop Top

    Crop tops are all the rage for Spring/Summer 2014! We love how versatile they are, whether paired with pants for a casual look, a nice skirt for something more formal, or even to the beach over your bathing suit, crop tops are here to stay! For a simple look that can be paired with any outfit, try something like the Dolce Vita "Romilda" crop top above. To rock the look at prom or homecoming, Dave & Johnny style 10003 is one of our favorite 2-piece dress looks to rock the crop top style.

    Don't forget: summer isn't here yet, so the weather is still fluctuating from warm to cool. So, to make sure you're not showing off too much skin when the cold air comes through, we suggest bringing a light casual jacket or blazer to tie the look together, especially after the sun goes down. Also, add a pair of fun high heels like the Night Moves by Allure Rihanna to lengthen your body and give this outfit an edge. What fashion piece are you obsessing over for the weekend? Comment below, and have a great weekend from all of us at Rissy Roo's!

  • What To Wear Wednesday: Spring Casual Outfits

    Even though we all love the Spring sunshine, flowers, and the days of Summer rapidly approaching, Spring can be a tricky time of year to dress because of its "in between" weather stage. However, for this same reason, this is one of our favorite times to mix it up with unique combinations of clothing and accessories. Due to the warmer weather, you can pair jeans with a crop top, or a dress with a sleek leather jacket. The options are endless, making us obsessed with Spring/Summer 2014 fashion. This week, we are all about Spring casual outfits. Our 'What To Wear Wednesday' is a casual, yet cute outfit that can be worn any day (night) of the week!
