Feeling Blue

During the holiday season, most of us grab our brightest red lipstick and metallic glitter. This year, have you thought about going blue?

It's a bold and bright alternative to the usual Christmas party makeup. It's an easy way to standout in a sea of red lipped party-goers. 

"Less is more" has never been more true than when it comes to blue. I think it looks best when it is the focal-point of your makeup look. 
Clean skin, nude lips and bright blue shadow. 

There's so many way to add blue too. You can use it as a liner, a pop of color or an all over shade.
I gave it a try and had a bit of fun with it!

If you want to give it a go, there's plenty to chose from this holiday season. Huda Beauty has released Obsessions palettes which comes in an array of colors (obviously including blue). Violette and Estee Lauder has launched the Blue Dahlia palette and Stila has a stunning set of jewel tone duo-shadows.



Violette has tons of  blue-eyed inspiration, but here are a few you should check out!

Lipstick Launches

It's the holiday season and every party look can really be elevated with a pop of color on the lips!
Not one but three brands have had lipstick launches this season and no matter what your budget is, there's a lipstick out there for you! 

1. ROUJE


Rouje is a clothing brand started by model Jeanne Damas and has now expanded into the beauty industry. Jeanne is known for her Parisian red lips so of course she had to make her own so that we can all feel just as French. The collection has 4 lipstick shades and a compact that store each shade inside. The packaging is gorgeous and vintage inspired while the colors are suitable for day and night! Lipsticks retail for $29 and the lip palette is $45. 


2. Lisa Eldridge


The queen of Youtube, Lisa Eldridge, has finally launched her own line of True Velvet Lipsticks! As a professional makeup artist and Lancome's global creative director, Lisa knows a thing or two about makeup. Unfortunately all three shades have sold out but as we wait for the re-stock let's take a look at the shades:

Velvet Morning, a “hot and fiery bright orange/red.”
Velvet Ribbon, a “vibrant, universal, classic neutral blue/red.”
Velvet Jazz, a “muted, earthy brick red inspired by 1930s red lipsticks.”

The lipsticks look absolutely stunning and they retail for $33.



3. ZARA



It seems that out of nowhere Zara has decided to also dabble in the makeup industry by bringing out liquid and matte lipsticks. They are super affordable and come in a variety of shades. The lipsticks retail for $13 and the liquid lip retails at $10.

Cream Dream

Cream Dream

Each year when fall rolls around, most of us tend to ditch our light and bright colors in exchange for muted neutrals. 


This year, my go-to has been cream-colored sweaters. They're simple, cozy and go with nearly everything. Creamy sweaters are an easy way to look sophisticated without going the extra mile.
It's a piece that never goes out of style.


Skimming through some of the Pre-Fall and Resort 2019 Collections, I noticed quite a few cream and nude jumpers getting thrown into the mix. 
Take a peek for some cozy inspiration!

Pre-Fall 2019 Collections

Pre-Fall 2019 Collections

The 2019 Pre-Fall collections are here and this really excites me as dressing for the cooler months is my favorite. The warm neutral tones, layering, and dressing in soft and cozy textures is the best! Only a few collections have been released but these are my top three at the moment:

BURBERRY

Riccardo Tisci is keeping true to his first collection for the brand by making it more of a street-wear vibe. It's a fresh new feel for this iconic fashion house and I'm loving it. He still provided elegant trenches and accessories but with more wearable basics. 

VALENTINO

Last night the Valentino show was presented in Tokyo for the first time. Pierpaolo Piccioli declared that he loved the culture of Japan, "It's so modern with a sense of tradition which is romantic, not nostalgic-it's part of the present". 

JIL SANDER

Creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier have kept the thoughtful minimalism of the brand while creating a collection that's modern and playful. 
“It’s important that in fashion, quality is back, really at the forefront, because we shouldn’t be so wasteful; we should make things that last a feel good and are not disposable.” said Luke Meier.
