  • 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!

  • Get Ready for your Winter and Holiday Formals with A Roo Girl!

    The most exciting part of having an upcoming event is picking out the perfect outfit, which goes far beyond just the dress. You also have to make sure you have the perfect hairstyle, make up, and shoes to truly complete your outfit! Because of all these important aspects of putting an outfit together, sometimes it can turn into a lengthy process, especially if you have no idea where to start! So, we're going to show you how we get ready for our special events in four easy steps! Read on for easy steps to get ready for a winter inspired dance or formal event.

    Step 1: Pick which dress length you would feel most comfortable in. Since you're going to a formal event, you'll be walking, sitting and probably dancing. Therefore, you want to choose a dress that doesn't keep you from the fun! And, of course, one that you love!

    Blush style 9800We chose Blush 9800, a floor-length, powder blue/nude mermaid gown!

    Step 2: Now that you've picked your perfect dress, it's time to move onto shoes. We tend to go with heels for most formal events, but if you're not comfortable wearing heels you could always go with a dressy pair of flats, especially if you plan on wearing a long gown that will hide the shoes anyway! Listed below are Sizzle by Coloriffics Andes and Touch Ups Dale - two shoes that we'd love to wear with Blush 9800!

  • Latest Must-Have Fall & Winter Trends

    Each year, fashion gets more and more unpredictable. With so many great trends to follow this Fall, we had to narrow them down to just three.

    Say YES to White after Labor Day!

    Lots of rule-breaking trends this season, including the always infamous no white after Labor Day rule. These rebellious celebs are going against the rules of fashion by keeping white throughout the fall and winter. It's all about how you accessorize and the type of fabric.

  • What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

    Finding the perfect dress to wear to a winter wedding can be difficult; you want to wear a cute dress, but it's cold out! Whether a formal or semi-formal wedding, here's some ideas that are perfect for showing off your fashion sense during the one month when dresses aren't quite as easy to wear.

    Formal Wedding

    This type of wedding usually means it's good to wear a long dress, since it's the winter time. Black is the perfect color for winter because the darker color is always appropriate, no matter what the setting.  It can also always be dressed up or down with accessories, depending on just how formal the black-tie affair is.

    The first dress is La Femme style 18928, an elegant and classic jersey gown with satin accents and criss-cross satin straps under the bust. The back also has satin straps that criss-cross with a rhinestone brooch in the center. Since it's a simple black gown, you can have a lot of fun changing the look with accessories.

    The second dress is a fancier number that's perfect if you know the event you are attending is on the more formal side. It's Alyce Jean De Lys style 29602, a satin and lace gown with a scoop-neck. The cap sleeves and black lace make is so perfect for the colder months!

     Semi-Formal Wedding

    If it's a semi-formal wedding, a cocktail dress is the perfect choice. This type of wedding allows you to be much more flexible with your outfit and more easily show off your style. Our two favorite cocktail dresses for a winter wedding are below - the longer sleeves make them so perfect for the winter time. And, since they're just classic cocktail dresses, they can be worn for a number of other occasions, too!

    For a funkier look, we love Jovani style 74207. It's a short cocktail dress with 3/4 length sleeves and illusion detail that shows off just enough skin, while still having that classy look for a wedding.

    Jovani style 74207

    for a cocktail dress on the more formal size, we love Alyce Jean De Lys style 29524. This chic and classy short dress has a lace over satin fabric with a scoop neckline and 3/4 length illusion sleeves. Best yet, it's a classic little black dress that can be word to many different events!

  • Winter White Fashion Trend

    Wearing the color white is usually reserved for the summer months, but this year it's been given new life, with celebs and fashionistas wearing the color well through the winter! Taylor Swift has been seen wearing the color at a handful of red carpet events, with her rocking the color most recently at the Grammy Awards.

    Taylor Swift at the 2013 Grammy AwardsWhile it's not the most practical of colors, we love white because it brings elegance to any outfit. When it comes to wearing it, don't try to match shades - embrace the subtleties that comes with wearing pure white vs. ivory vs. cream, and don't be afraid to match different textures and fabrics. Don't wear white tights with the outfit, otherwise you risk starting to look like a ghost! Most importantly, any questions alluding to Labor Day are best simply ignored - they clearly just aren't a fashionista! Wear the color with confidence and pride.

    If you have a formal party to attend soon, it's definitely a great color choice to feel part of the Winter Wonderland with all the snow that's been falling lately! Or, if you want to wait to rock it at prom, the color has clearly become an on-trend choice to wear year round. Our favorite white dresses are below - check them out!

    When it comes to the classic evening gown, we love La Femme style 18631. It's a sheath gown with a v-neck fully embellished bodice flowing into a chiffon skirt. The back has thick embellished straps that form an X in the middle, and dips to a low open back.

    La Femme style 18631Tony Bowls TS11368 is perfect if you're looking for a short prom dress or cocktail dress for a Winter Formal. It's a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, silver studded bodice, and a gathered illusion skirt.

    Tony Bowls Shorts style TS11368For the ball gown look, check out Tiffany Designs style 16901. It's a strapless sweetheart ball gown with an iridescent stacked sequin bodice, a chunky A.B. rhinestone belt, and a full tulle ball gown skirt. It's a true princess gown!
