Trends: Ombre Fever

I'm obsessed with Ombre hair!
I have come to a conclusion that it looks best on others.

That doesn't stop me from enjoying other ladies rocking the look.
Khloe has the best ombre I've ever seen.
The look also looks great on Keke Palmer.

How do you feel about the ombre trend?

Jessica Alba at the Golden Globe Awards Rocking Hourglass Cosmetics

I've peeled myself away from watching the Golden Globes awards to post this all for you. Didn't Jessica Alba look stunning!! I still can't believe that she's a mother of two. She rocked that fab peach-coloured gown by Oscar de la Renta.

She's is also wearing one of my favourite makeup brands Hourglass cosmetics. I was sent this breakdown and I know that someone may want to recreate the look!

Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen prepped the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. She then used Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and fanned the product out in the center of the forehead to create dimension. She finished the skin step with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light applied all over to create a golden, subtle warmth. “It’s a soft, refined shimmer that’s glowy,” says Lauren.

She used the bronze shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and followed with the blush shade on the apples of the cheeks.

Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso was first applied to the outer corners of the eyes and then smudged it with a brush. Lauren then applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer in the crease of the eyes and the gold shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune on the lids. Lashes were treated to several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara. She finished up by amplifying the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.

Finally, Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a vibrant tangerine shade, was applied to the lips. The velvety matte color delivers richly pigmented and long-lasting coverage for up to 14 hours.

How do you feel about this look?
Love it or hate?

Short Hair Envy

Back in 2009, I sat down in the hair dressers chair and did the most drastic thing ever. I told her to cut it all off. If anyone knows me they will know that I plan EVERYTHING I do. I remember getting the cut and thinking what in the world would I do with short hair. So many questions came to mind. Would my boyfriend like it, is it cut the way I want it and most importantly, how will I maintain it on my own!

My decision came after seeing ladies like Rihanna & Estelle rock short styles with confidence.When you have short hair everything matters. I always wondered if had the right earrings or the right hair accessories?
I know that several North America ladies went insane and cut it all off after Rihanna came out with the cropped do in “take a bow”. I will never forget how her deep black hair looked with that sexy red lip! I knew I had to have it.

I can only imagine the amount of ladies who searched for Hairdressers in London who can do this exact hairdo from Estelle. She was rocking it way before Rihanna did. She also has the perfect face structure to carry this short style.

My experience with short hair was really difficult at first. My hair grows extremely fast and it was hard to maintain the back. I remember gelling down the back of my hair and hoping that it would last all day!

My top three short hair accessories:

1. Hats
At that time I had those loose beenie hat in every color. I always made sure that I had an extra black one. I was also able to wear them in the office!

2. Bobby Clips
If your hair is not laying right, these are a God sent. I always kept a few in my car, desk and purse. The best part about bobby pins is that you can get them at the dollar store! Remember to stock up.

3. Silk scarf
Every girl needs a silk scarf! I won’t get into the details, I’ll save that for another post but they help your hair from breaking. Especially at night when you move around a lot in bed.

I hope these tips helped. Also my UK ladies who took the plunge remember that you can always find Hair extensions in London to change up your look!

Stiletto Nails- Hot or Not?

Have you seen them on your favourite celebrities such as Rihanna, Adele, Lady Gaga or Beyonce?
Rihanna Source: Google
I have a love/hate relationship with them.
They're very unique but kinda scary. Definitely not corporate office friendly (in my opinion).
Imagine the stares I would get if I was conducting a presentation with those bad boys. Oh man!
Since I'm about to cut my nails off, so I decided to play around with the trend a bit.

I should have taken pictures of my process but it was sooooo basic.
All I did was take a nail file and file the edges of my nails until they came to a point.
I know I didn't get the claw look but you get the point(pun intended).

Are Stiletto Nails- Hot or Not?

My NEW Hair Muse Angela Simmons

Whenever I need some hair inspo I have been googling Angela Simmons lately. She has totally grown into her own. Now I can add her to my list of current style favorites with Rihanna &  Kim K <3


Rihanna headband look- Hot or Not?

Spring is right around the corner.. well if you look outside you may say other wise :| It's snowing!!

I forgot to do a winter beauty/fashion trend, so I'm researching what's hot for Spring/Summer. One trend which I am currently seeing a lot is head bands/head ties.

Some people may not know what I of course I had to use the gorgeous Rihanna as an example:

They may not be for everyone but all I can see are pros:
  • Works for all hair lengths and types.
  • Perfect for lazy hair days.
  • They can add flair to an outfit.
  • Affordable!
I had to highlight affordable because you can buy a scarf at most dollar stores for only a dollar!!

So ladies is the headband look hot?
