All About The Bootie!

30 Dec

I love boots in all forms, but I am especially fond of the ankle-ish height of the “bootie”. I love how they can be worn year round and in many ways. This shorter sister to the traditional boot can be thrown over leggings, worn with shorts and dresses. Jeans can be tucked into, bunched up or rolled above them. The possibilities are endless! Below are some of my favorite booties I’ve come across in recent months. I personally love wearing my jeans tucked into or scrunched up with my booties, but there are NO rules! Scroll down for some bootie inspiration from celebrities and style bloggers, proving you can rock your booties any way you want!

Find Your Nude!

19 Mar

If you’ve read my What Do I Wear With That? section featured on this blog, then you already know that I feel every woman needs a nude heel- A wedge or flat always work too.  Nude shoes literally match EVERYTHING, When I can’t find a shoe to match my ensemble, I always turn to my nude shoes to pull the outfit together. It’s practically like your barefoot and they elongate the legs as well which is a plus. With that being said I think it’s great to find a nude that is similar to your skin tone for a nice fluid look.

White Eyeliner To The Rescue!

12 Nov

Ladies do not- I repeat DO NOT be afraid of white eyeliner, it is your friend indeed!  White eyeliner has been a makeup artist trick of the trade for decades and like any other product CAN be overdone and look silly but when applied right, white eyeliner instantly gives you a radiant and wide-eyed look.  If you want your eyes to POP, this is for you and is great if you have deep-set or small eyes as well. A very effective way to wear white eyeliner is to apply it to your lower waterline (inner rim of your bottom lid). Think of it as a continuation of the “whites” of your eyes……making them bigger and brighter immediately.  You can also use white eyeliner as a highlight to brighten up your inner corner tear duct area.

Fair to medium skin looks best with bright white or pearly hued pencils while tan to dark skin looks best with creamy, off white or beige hued pencils.

Feeling daring? Wing it out…..Upper or lower lash line…it’s up to you!
