Make Up For Ever Lipstick X Sephora

Let me introduce to you the BEST lipstick collection available for all you beauty lovers. As you may or may not know, my make-up skills are extremely limited and while I try to get into it, I always find myself shopping shoes and clothes before stepping foot into Sephora.

With that being said, I still signed up for their rewards program which automatically made me eligible to receive a yearly birthday gift.  The gift this year included a mini lipstick from Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Natural line – and it is to die for!

Not only was it a popular natural colour, thanks to Kylie Jenner, but it made it easy to wear everyday. I began using the mini sample and couldn’t resist it anymore. I walked into Sephora and picked up the full size.

A) It’s extremely lightweight and creamy, making it feel like a lipgloss versus a lipstick.

B) It has a great colour range from natural nudes, pinks, browns, plums, and even a few reds.

C) The shine it leaves is unbelievable. Your lips look flawless without the need of lipliner or a clear gloss finish.

 

 

The shade specifically shown above is N9 – here’s a look of it on me…

Must-Have Winter Footwear

New season, new trends. Don’t get overwhelmed, just follow the tips in this article to find out what essential footwear you need for your winter collection.

1) Laced Combat Boots

Whether you picked up a fabulous pair last season or you want to treat yourself to newer pair, combat boots are a must for the winter season. They make the perfect shoe for a casual look and can easily be dressed up. While you can purchase brown or beige combat boots, I’d stick to the basic black, since you’ll get the most of them for the whole season. As for length, the under-the-knee combat boots went out of style last season, so stick to the ankle length we’re all used to.

2) Heeled Booties

This is an obvious one. The style is totally up to you; you can choose to wear a nubuck style or a classic round toe suede buckle up – but booties are a must for the season because they can be used to easily dress a look up without needed to throw on bulky jewellery. It’s an easy fix that will make a lasting impression.

How to Wear Fall’s Hottest Trend, Houndstooth!

Don’t you just love when trends stick around from previous seasons? One pattern I’m extremely happy to see taking over store displays everywhere is houndstooth. Find out how to wear it this season below.

In early reference, Houndstooth, which may also be referred to as dogstooth, is a duotone textile pattern that consists of broken check marks and abstract shapes. The overall look, which is often in black and white. The pattern was introduced by a fashion clothier from New York in 1885.

This pattern is one that has been wore and recognized in the fashion industry for years and often linked to the classy designs of Chanel and the designer’s houndstooth printed dresses and suits. Not only does this print offer you a secure feeling of elegance but it also looks great on just about everyone! Unlike stripes, this pattern accents a women’s figure.

Shopping for the Perfect Trench Coat

As always, the hottest trend for fall is a well-tailored trench coat. Know exactly what you’re looking for by reading through these key tips.

BROWN BURBERRY COAT

An important aspect of finding the perfect trench coat is the small details that make a major difference. This can include whether or not the coat has pockets, double-buttons, a buckle, or silk lining. My tip: don’t cancel anything out, just get to the mall with an open mind and try EVERYTHING on, and when you find one that fits and feels comfortable, make the purchase. Also keep in mind that the fall means bulky clothing, so take that into consideration when determining a size.

No secret here, the shirtdress is exactly what it sounds like! A dress, that fits like an oversized shirt – making it not only comfortable, but stylish!
This summer and curving into fall, these dresses came in all types and styles, and luckily they’re here to stay. The perfect shirtdress accents your body without forcing you to wear a push-up bra, uncomfortable undies, Spanx, or any other crazy gimmick us ladies buy into.

Not only is a dress like this great for a day out, but you can really handle anything the city throws at you (depending on what shoes you wear, but we’ll get to that a little later).

Finally, IF possible, the shirtdress you find will have pockets ! Because who doesn’t love pockets on a dress?
