Ready, Set, Selfie!

Selfie: a picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to social media.  Who doesn't love a good selfie? I admit, I'm guilty of taking one to many of them myself, and not all of them turned out to be absolutely adorable. 

 

How far do I hold the camera out? What about lighting? The wind is blowing my hair all over the place. Selfies aren't easy. You never know when the mood will strike, so I came up with a few steps to make sure your selfie game is on point. 

 

Make sure the skin in moisturized so that your makeup doesn’t look cakey later on in the day. Even oily skin needs to be moisturized to be balanced. Use the Bombshell Day Moisturizer for oily skin or Illuminata for light weight moisture all day long.

 

Make sure your face has dimension by highlighting with 24kt gold highlighter

Place on the highest part of the cheekbone moving up all the way to your temples, right underneath the end of the eyebrow. Also place right on top of the bow of your lip (center).

 

Outlining the lip with Sweet Cheeks or Rosy Cheeks will guarantee definition of the lips and will last throughout the day ensuring a perfect selfie pout all day. Do you have dry, cracked lips? Try applying some Ambrosia Lip Treatment. This will make sure your lips heal and protected.

 

Use Go Green Eye Cream and S.W.A.K. highlighter to brighten eyes and bring focus to your perfect peepers.

 

Set your makeup with Sun Magic Setting Powder or, for a more sun-kissed, luminous look, use the Sun Magic Finishing Powder.

 

Always carry tissue with you so that you can blot out excess oil without compromising your makeup. Know your good side, always take photos with your face slightly angled to reflect the light better and slim the face. If you want, you can try a small pout but don't go overboard! Duck faces aren't cute on anyone. 

 

Make sure to exfoliate at least once a week to remove dead skin cells allowing your makeup to last longer and look less cakey and uneven throughout the day.

 

Use Beach Bum styling cream to create an easy, sexy beach look. Run your fingers through your hair before taking photos to reactivate the body and wave in your hair. Make sure to do this quickly and not too often, remember less is more. Playing with your hair too much will break up your waves, causing you to lose them!

 

Don’t line the top and bottom of the eye; this creates unnecessary shadows and darkness. Use a darker shadow color to line the bottom of the eye from the center point and blend out. Do a highlight color on the inner corner of the eye to make the eye appear larger and wider.

Until next time! xoxo

Valentino 2014 fall collection was full of poppy art & mod inspired fashion. This dress in particular caught my eye with its pops of colors and contrasting shapes. This dress is so mod I couldn't help turn it into our Fashion Wednesday for this week. 

 

This dress is so fun and bright, I love the contrasting colors and the shapes created by this pattern. These nails are sure to catch everyone's eye! I will admit that these nails were a little more time consuming but it was worth it! (Does anyone else think these nails would be perfect for Harley Quinn?)

 

In the words of the designer, "...the collection is about the simple pleasure in having fun.." and I completely agree.

Fashion Wednesday: Jesus del Pozo

Check out this dress created by Jesus del Pozo for last year's winter fashion show for Madrid. Ready to wear, this dress is "an above-the-knee coat-dress with volumetric modules, lantern sleeves and tie at the waist in double-faced, egg white crepe. Knitted, turtle neck sweater in fuchsia wool."  Warm and stylish, what more could you ask for? 

 

The simpleness of this dress really inspired my nails for this week's Fashion Wednesday. A white base with pops of hot pink, these nails are eyecatching without being too complicated.  

 

These nails were really simple to do! Check out the tutorial below to see how you can get the same look!
