Naturally Nouveau by Stila is face of beauty for Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2015

New York Fashion Week for Spring 2015 has kicked off in style with the Rebecca Minkoff show and the Natural Look is proving to be a big look for spring as seen on the runway by Stila.

 To recreate the look from the show you need:

Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette in Mind

All Over Shimmer Powder in Kitten,

Mile High Lashes Mascara

Color Balm Lipstick in Vivienne

As the shows evolve we will continue to report on the beauty trends; personally I think this is going to be a huge trend that we will see again.  Actually I want to wear the Color Balm Lipstick now in fall since the formula nourishes lips and is a great way to combat the cold air and dryness.
Well I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Bohemian looks and liquid lips at Alice and Olivia for Fall 2014

Alice and Olivia for New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 was a “modern fairytale” collection influenced by Victorian and Bohemian looks.

ALice and Olivia

Set at The McKittrick Hotel in NYC, the romantic collection contained bold brocades, rich velvet, regal lace and opulent metallics, mixed with Monarch Butterfly motifs and jewels.

The runway beauty had a definite “notice me on the red carpet” vibe that featured the return of big hair and curls.

The rich makeup look centered on lips and eyes created with Stila products.

In place of lipstick, colorful liquid lips were created with Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery and Vinyl lip gloss (a plum color) in Merlot. The great thing about these colors is that they are packed with staying power for up to 6 hours and are loaded with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil. So while you wear your favorite shade, your lips can be softened all day, and you won’t need to worry about your best lip balm.

My favorite standouts from the show are the fur and lace touches along with the luxe lips, and while these touches can be worn together they an also be worn to accent a spring look to create a unique textured look.

Get to Know the Difference Between BB, CC, DD Creams

BB, CC, and DD creams are all the rage in the beauty world, but do you understand the difference between these high-tech creams that can replace foundation?

This Alphabet Soup of products can get confusing.  Really, how can you tell what product will be better for your needs?  Or, should you bother trying one at all? So, to help you decide if one of these creams are for you, here is a handy comparison.

BB means Beauty Balm and became popular in Asia.  Since their migration, BB Creams have gained popularity for providing coverage as a primer while moisturizing and providing SPF foundation.  BB Creams are also heaver than tinted foundation but lighter than foundation.

CC Creams are improved BB Creams that  address issues like redness or complexion unevenness with light-diffusing particles. Buildable color allows you to find just the right shade with a whipped and fluffy texture that sets lightly on the skin.

DD Creams are still new to the market and are intended to protect skin balance skintone and provide anti-aging properties with the benefits of BB and CC Creams.

Now that we have the definitions straight, here is a cheat sheet to help you find your skin in the list below and match it to the perfect BB, CC or DD Cream.

Dry Skin 

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream

Julep DD Creams

Uneven Skin 

Chanel CC Complete Correction Cream SPF 30

Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB Sunscreen

DERMAdoctor DD Cream

Fine Lines 

Bobbi Brown BB Cream

Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Correction Concealer

Dark Spots 

Olay’s Total Effects 7 in One CC Tone Correcting Moisturizer with sunscreen

Vichy ProEVEN mineral BB Cream

Prevent Breakouts

Boscia BB Cream SPF 27

Good “BeautyIdea”: A good rule of thumb is BB is for protection while CC is for repairing current issues such as fine lines.

In fact, florals continue to trend big and are popping up in new and innovative ways.  And personally I couldn’t be happier to see a floral theme in items I can use everyday.

Here are some of my favorite floral pics: from a Corioliss vintage travel dryer, an adorable Fornasetti candle, Etsy makeup bag, Library of Flowers Soap,  a classic Valentino dress from Stylebop, Stila Garden Bliss blush, and (the fragrance I wear every day) Marc Jacobs original Daisy.

Of course, fresh Daisies are always welcome anytime.
