Take a stylish cue from Kanye (yes, we love his style) and this fall, throw on a over sized coat over your jeans and tees. Doesn’t need to have the glammed up fur even a simple coat with sleek lines will give your outfits a polished touch that looks more grown up.  Check his look we recreated and some other coats below.

To me, beauty is literally skin deep and I believe that everything you put inside your body will reflect outwards. My beauty routine always starts in the kitchen, and the products I use play a supporting role in keeping my skin looking polished. In today’s hectic working-mom world, my routine also has to be simple and quick; and the products I use have to provide maximum impact. Below is my routine in keeping my look fresh and hopefully forever young.Forever Young Beauty Roputine

I Literally Veg Out

I try to make sure that when I sit down and eat that my plate has a lot of veggies. Not only are they healthy, but they’re proven wrinkle reducers. A typical meal will include a boiled egg over a bed of spinach and grilled chicken.

Water

If I don’t drink a minimum of 8-10 cups of  water a day my skin will immediately look dull. It’s the best thing you can do for your skin and it’s also the easiest and cheapest. I don’t necessarily like to drink water, so I carry a stylish flask and pretty cup to make it more of a treat (and I add fresh lemon or lime). Any fruit will work but the lemon and lime help burn calories – bonus!

Makeup

I never leave the house without blush and mascara. The eyes are the window to the soul and I want my eyes to look bright, happy and ready to conquer the day; it’s like coffee for the eyes. I apply three coats of mascara concentrating on the outer lashes. The blush application is equally important because I like a “no-makeup” look – so I apply it to only my apple cheeks as opposed to up and out towards my ears like we’ve all been taught.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating is probably the most important part of any skin care routine because it allows the skin to better absorb any moisturizer you use. Every night after  I remove my makeup I exfoliate.  I take a small bowl and add 4 tablespoons of regular white sugar and mix it with two tablespoons of water and mix until it is a thick paste and scrub it on my face in a circular motion.

Moisturize

My skin tends to get oily and it’s prone to acne so I’m really picky when choosing a moisturizer. Lately I’ve been using Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting  Cream  (I bought mine at Walgreens for only $26) that helps the appearance of lines, boosts hydration and brightens your skin. It’s amazing!  I apply it generously at night after I exfoliate and since I started using  it the fine lines have been less noticeable and my face looks visibly smoother, fresh and actually a bit younger. It’s become one of my must-have beauty products in my daily routine.

This may not be the best picture of Hilary Duff but I’m loving how she mixed her bright blue skinny jeans with a chunky knit sweater and sleek white booties. Great look for a stylish Thanksgiving dinner.

Celebrity Copycat: Kim Kardashian’s Jogger Pants Look for less!

September 9, 2014 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I have a love-hate relationship with Kim Kardashian’s style. I love that she embrace her curves, but I wish she would just cover up and take a break from all the booty and cleavage. That’s why I love this casual look on Kim Kardashian! It’s still sexy but in a sweatpants chic kind of way that isn’t showing too much of anything. An easy breezy outfit anyone can wear and if you don’t want to wear heels you can simply add some flats.

Falls Hottest Makeup Trends & More From Project Runway Makeup Artist Scott Patric

September 5, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Project Runway makeup artist Scott Patric

I’ve been watching Project Runway for years and I’m so excited to share Scott Patric’s (Project Runways lead makeup artist) hottest makeup tips for this season, how to get the perfect natural look and his experience working with the Project Runway celebrities and models! Check it out below.

How was your experience working with celebrities on Project Runway?

It is fun, challenging, and exhilarating working with the models and designers on Project Runway. We are in a creative time crunch, so we use all our know-how and creativity to pull it all together and make a great look for the audience and judges to view.

How should women emphasize their natural glow with makeup?

-Have a clear and simple direction before you start your makeup and you will get there faster and the look will be neater when you finish.
-Pick a feature to focus. If today the focus is a red lip, just define the eye and let the lip speak. If tomorrow it’s a smokey eye, then the lip steps back.
-”Sheer out” your foundations with moisturizer. Use foundation on problem spots from the bottle, and where your skin is great, let it show through by sheering out.
-Always use lots of mascara!! If you are in a rush, don’t skip the mascara, skip something else because the eyes are the window to your soul!!
-A white, shimmery highlight in the inner corner of your eye makes it look like you’ve had lots of rest. It brightens your whole face.

How can normal women pull off the “natural look”?

Women after 40 definitely need to moisturize. We need to be hydrated and do yoga. Find a foundation that is sheer but with a good amount of coverage. Try the Shu Uemura tinted spf because you will look flawless and have sun protection. For lips, try Chanel Rouge Coco in Charme #40. It’s hydrating with a touch of soy pink mauve color. It’s awesome! Always highlight the great spots on your face. Lips always feel young with a light gloss. Keep it simple. A beautiful lip and a clean face goes a long way. Eyeshadows with less shine work better for women over 40.

What are some of your personal must-haves and why are they so amazing?

My personal all-time favorite products are Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara for longer, fuller, more gorgeous lashes. Luminous Silk Foundation by Giorgio Armani makes your skin look like you are fifteen! Nars Blush in Orgasm is the right blush shade for almost every skin color – the name says it all! Dolce & Gabbana’s Classic Cream Lipstick in Tender #510 and Delicious #415 are citrus bright lipsticks perfect for the beach or an party after.

What is hot this season?

Fall makeup is about a berry lip. It feels so great after the summer brights to take it back to a more chic berry and a subtle, grey smoke around the eye.

To ensure a beautiful look throughout the day, what are the top three things women should carry around in their purse?

Every woman should have blotting papers, an eyelash curler, and Burt’s Bees peppermint lip balm in her purse!

Make sure to drop by Scott Patric’s Facebook page where he posts his process for creating the winning look each Friday.

Jessica Alba once again looks flawless in flared pants, blouse and platform sandals. I love that it’s a sleek outfit, and the platforms with flared pants give it a hippy vibe.  Pair the outfit with a chunky knit sweater for cooler weather or with a blazer for the office.

Men’s Bomber Jackets

Filed under Boys on the Side

Back in the 90′s bomber jacket were seen mainly in black and green with orange interiors, but thanks to the modern shapes, textures and colors that they now come in they’ve made a huge comeback. I personally think they look best in black (see Kanye and Kim below) but there are tons of options to fit everyone’s style. Wear it for fall with a white tee and jeans and for winter layer with sweaters and cords.
