Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

Lady Gaga Face Of Versace Spring Campaign!

25 Nov

Rumors and pictures  have been swirling around the web for a week or so of Lady Gaga in a pretty pale purple Versace dress.  The picture is gorgeous and the rumors are true. The Versace camp confirmed that the 27 year mega star is the face of their Spring 2014 ad campaign. The pictures released so far reveal a fresh-faced lady gaga with long blonde hair- a look very reminiscent of a young Donatella Versace. The ads will begin appearing in magazines in January of next year.

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.

Sheer Genius!

13 Oct

I tried Almost Lipstick by Clinique today and I love it!  I have always been a fan of tinted lip balms and stains because for day-to-day use I want moisture more than anything else, but a touch of color is nice.  Almost Lipstick is perfect for all day wear  it’s a moisturizing semi gloss, ultra-light lipstick. Not quite a gloss, and not quite a lipstick,  it’s formula looks great alone yet it’s sheer enough for easy layering.  Available in 8 shades ($15) at clinique counters and online at  Clinique.

I tried the black honey and it’s a very light plum color, although it looks dark in the tube. The colors are all very light and sheer.

Minimal Summer Makeup

15 May

I love the look of minimal makeup in the Summer and it’s so easy. I have gotten a lightweight routine down for these warm months. It literally takes 5 minutes and looks polished yet simple.

I’ve narrowed my products down to only 4!!!!! I add a swipe of shimmery eyeshadow or liner if I have extra time, but these 4 products are key to achieve this look.

  • Tinted moisturizer with SPF
  • Mascara
  • Blush(I love corals & peaches for summer)
  • Lip balm/gloss(peach,pink,nude)
