  • Teen Sisters Invent Lux Makeup Brand Nudestix!

    With natural looking and time-saving makeup trends on the rise, there is no surprise a new ultra luxurious makeup brand that combines both would have hit shelves in sleek, black tins of heaven soon enough. However, it is a little surprising this insanely awesome concept was designed and launched by two teenage sisters! Yes, that's correct, 15 and 17 year-old Ally and Taylor Frankel are the young, fresh faces and minds behind Nudestix. Nudestix is a new collection of creamy crayons that are easy to apply, blend and are almost like a lipstick, eyeliner, blush and shadow all in one. Perfectly portable in a tin with a mirror and a sharpener, for about $24, you are "selfie" sufficient with this brilliant brand!

    Teen Sisters Invent Lux Makeup Brand Nudestix!How did teen sisters invent lux makeup brand Nudestix? Ally and Taylor have the genetic makeup for makeup, if you will. Their mother is Jenny Frankel, a successful beauty executive for over 20 years who took some time off from work to spend more time with her girls. Mom started noticing the nontraditional approach her girls used when applying makeup and started asking some questions. Her curiosity and past experience, along with the girls' passion to create something in their words where "crayola meets Chanel," inspired something huge! Together they came up with the user-friendly collection that is  also easy on the wallet. Although each crayon is around $24, each one can be used for multiple things. The girls especially love the highlighters because they can also be used as liners or for contouring. They have the perfect amount of gold according to which color you choose!

    Teen Sisters Invent Lux Makeup Brand Nudestix!These girls are definitely revolutionizing the way we think about and use makeup. From using multiple brushes and wearing layers of concealers and powders to swiping a crayon, smudging some lines, and maybe adding some mascara, they are encouraging natural, fresh faces everywhere. Young models now are baring their natural skin and using makeup to enhance their features, not cover them up. Ally and Taylor set out to do the same and we think they have the right idea! You can purchase Nudestix at Space NK.

  • 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!

  • Lovely Lea Michele at the 2014 Kids Choice Awards

    The 2014 Kids Choice Awards were just a few days ago, and they were so fun to watch! Two of our favorite girls of the year, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lawrence, took the show bringing home so many orange blimps! Ariana took home a blimp for her show Sam and Cat, and also took one home for Favorite TV Actress. J. Law had the big win of the night with 3 blimps: 1 for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actress, and Favorite Female Buttkicker! Congrats, Girls!

    As you know, the show wasn't all we were watching, though. Our eyes were glued to the Red...ahem...Orange Carpet watching all of the lady celebrities strut their style. Our favorite dressed girl of the night was undoubtedly the lovely Lea Michele. She looked so gorgeous in her coral color lace short dress there was no doubt in our heads that she was our favorite look of the night!

    Plus, she had such a fun time honing her inner Marylin Monroe that how could you not love her??

    Another reason we love her Kids Choice Awards look? Because it's so easy (and so in style) to copy for Prom 2014! For a Lea Michele dress look, there's two La Femme dresses that we're loving - check them out below:

    La Femme style 20386 is an adorable strapless tulle dress with a ruffled hem. The bodice is covered with lace and scattered jewels, making this dress so celeb glam!

    La Femme 20386 hot coral

    La Femme style 19160 is all over lace! This v-neck sequin cocktail dress with a criss cross ruched bodice seems simple, but has so much detail to it. Multi shaped iridescent stones adorn the neckline and straps to give it an extra bit if sparkle.

    La Femme 19160 hot coral

    Whether one of these dresses, or another short coral dress that you love, have fun accessorizing just like Lea, too! We loved that Lea kept the jewelry to a minimum and chose to brighten up the whole look with neon pink lipstick. Such a perfect combo and unique way to rock the coral color!

  • 5 Tips to Make Your Lipstick Last in the Fall & Winter!

    A new season means new lipstick colors! This fall, the lipstick shade we are obsessing over is plum. According to Cosmopolitan, plum lipstick is the number one sexiest piece of fall make-up.

    1490-shay-mitchell-s-funky-fall-look-0x375-2"Spiked with a dash of burgundy and a hit of black, plum lipstick becomes, 'sophisticated in a twisted kind of way,'" says makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

    Date-Makeup-Idea-Dark-Plum-Lips-0-megan-foxWe couldn't agree more with Tom! We are definitely taking advantage of the fall weather and squeezing in all the different shades of plum lipstick that we can get our hands on! But, with winter right around the corner, don't worry because this is a shade that can be worn right through the cold weather, too.

    The only thing we can't help but hate is when our lipstick wares off! Having to re-apply lipstick many times throughout the day is exhausting and wastes the product; which is why we want to share 5 tips to make your lipstick last, an article based off of Seventeen Magazine. With winter officially just around the corner and chapped lips on their way, these tips couldn't be more important.

    a-lips-getty-creative1. Exfoliate. Scrub your lips with the rest of your face while you're in the shower in the morning. A gentle exfoliator will smooth over the flakes that come with winter's chapped lips.

    2. Moisturize. With the temperatures dropping faster than you can say "pumpkin spice latté," moisturizing everything, including your lips is key. Stock up on a long-lasting chapstick to keep your pucker from getting chapped and use it before applying lipstick to help it go on smoothly.

    3. Prime & Line. Use an easy-to-apply lip primer to set the stage for the bold color. Once it's absorbed, outline you lips in a liner that's the same shade of your natural lip color.

    4. Add Your Color. Apply the lipstick of choice in two swipes.  Blot a couple times on a tissue and repeat with another swipe of lipstick, followed by another blot. Do this until you score your desired color strength.

    5. Set with Powder. You heard us, powder—on your lips. A light, translucent powder will help keep the color in place even after you enjoy a huge mug of hot chocolate!

    Once you follow these short steps, you will be ready to rock your plum lipstick (or any other color lipstick) all day long!

  • Steal Rita Ora's Style from the EMA Awards!

    Who tuned into the EMA Awards this past Sunday, November 10th? We sure did! There's nothing more entertaining than music and dresses, and when the two are put together it ensures a great time!

    There were many fashion do's and a few fashion don'ts! According to Perez Hilton, Rita Ora was "Blah in Black" at the 2013 EMA's.

    Rita Ora at the 2013 EMAs

     Although Rita's dress at this year's award show was deemed "blah" and "boring", her unique and daring dress from last year's EMA awards caught our eye and had us gushing so much that we're still talking about it!

    Rita-Ora-2012-MTV-EMAs

    We love a good ball gown. Especially one that's red.. and LACE! Rita looked like a million bucks from head to toe and we're going to show you how to accomplish this lavish look!

    Mac Duggal 61393R

    Mac Duggal style 61393R is so similar to the dress Rita Ora is wearing that you shouldn't be surprised if you're accidentally mistaken for the starlet. We adore the way the nude illusion leaves room for the red lace to really pop and catch eyes!

    natural toned lips

     Rita decided to go with a red lip, which we think is fabulous, but if you want to tone the look down a bit you could go for a more natural make-up approach as shown in the picture above. Finger Waves are also a MUST! Finger waves and lace give off a very vintage vibe; which is why the two go together perfectly.

    Accessories

    Lastly, you can't forget your accessories! Try to keep the bling to a minimum because the dress makes a huge statement on it's own! We chose the Johnathan Kayne Austria - Swarovski Austrian Crystals heels, the Helen's Heart (JB-PD00339) Gold Bracelet and the Helen's Heart (E06245) Gold Crystal Stone Earrings.

    With last year's outfit in mind, we're not surprised that Rita landed on the "blah" list this year. Any dress is sub-par compared to this goddess gown!

    What do you think of this bold look?

  • Get Selena Gomez's 'Star Dance' Promo Pic Look!

    Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber broke up earlier this year, and it's definitely been all about Selena ever since then! From being the December 2012 Glamour Cover Girl, to coming out with her new hit single "Come and Get It," to even having a nail polish collaboration with Nicole by OPI, there's no stopping this girl! So, it's no surprise that she of course has perfect style, too.

    selena gomez star dance

    The most recent look we're obsessing over is her makeup in her latest promo pic for her upcoming album, Star Dance. Her dramatic eye makeup is just so stunning! Want to rock the look yourself? No worries - we have you covered! The bold, black look is so sexy, while the lush lashes give it a touch of sultry - perfect for a night out with friends.

    selena gomez star dance

    To get those voluminous lashes, try out Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara. This mascara is so perfect because it does more than just volumize; it also lengthens and curls, all while protecting those lashes with a triple peptide complex! For a super dramatic look like Selena's, just simply apply extra coats.

    Finish off the look with your favorite black smokey eye shadow, and add in black eyeliner over your lash line and waterline. Whether your eyes are brown like Selena's or not, this is one look that looks perfect with all eye colors. So, have fun giving the look a go...maybe even while playing "Come and Get It" in the background for some extra inspiration!

  • Joy Vieli in Mac Duggal at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival!

    The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival was held at the end of May, and there were so many stunning looks all throughout the festival! One of our favorite looks was worn by DJ and model Joy Vieli. She wore one of our favorite designers, Mac Duggal, at several events at the festival, so we were of course very amazed by her outfit choices! Some of the events Joy attended included director Sofia Coppola's exclusive yacht party, as well as an after party at VIP ROOM Famous Club. She was definitely both dressed up in style AND partying in style!

    Joy Vieli at the Cannes Film Festival

    Our favorite look that she wore during the festival was Mac Duggal style 78703R, which is the gown she's wearing in the above picture. It's such an elegant gown, but we loved how she gave it her own edgy touch with hairstyle and bold lipstick (and of course, her fierce model stance!). Mac Duggal 78703R has sensational beaded floral designs that fill the center front of this spectacular floor length evening gown, giving it such a unique look. All eyes were definitely on Joy in this gown with a thigh high slit and sheer one shoulder design!

    Mac Duggal 78703R

     It's a great dress for prom or any other formal event. Black goes with anything and everything, after all!
