Heyy ladiesss!! It seems like AGES since I last wrote to you! (and maybe it has been!) …
Today I want to discuss nudity- on your face. Along with some other fashion ideas …
Recently I am very inspired by the no-makeup look. It is very modelesque, if you will.
It is also perfect for Summer. It’s so easy to keep applying more makeup as you go along, however I think now we are leaning toward a lighter trend. And hopefully this means making a conscious effort to apply less. I know I am not innocent in this, and I am definitely guilty of packing on the powder on top of the layers of concealers.
However, I just rediscovered Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer and it is literally the only thing you need to put on your face, foundation-wise. Add some black or brown mascara, add any lip color, swipe on gloss, and go!
I also always fill in my brows a little and sometimes I add some blush. Do both of these steps very LIGHTLY to get the ‘no makeup’ effect.
And I think that with this new glow, we should focus next on our wardrobes. With our Summer styles, we should definitely invest in white pants. Whether they are denim OR silk-blend, white is hot and you should get in on this recurring trend.
1 piece of advice: Do not buy denim with rips. Save and splurge on a nice pair of well fitting white pants sans rips. Rips are trendy and not necessary, unless you have excess money to spend on jeans, and then I suggest pants with 2 rips max. One rip at each knee, more like a slit, not a shredded patch.
And I won’t lie, if you have even more dough to drop on denim, rips like these below look uber cool. Just make sure these aren’t your first pair of pants because these are more of a statement pant, and not your go-to pair.
But something I am NOT into are crop tops. They look cute on your little girl and that is about it.
Instead trade the crop top notion for a sheer lace top. I am very into lace recently and I think white lace is both sexy and sophisticated. Take the outfit from day to night by adding a structured black blazer.
ALSO, I don’t know if I mentioned this to you guys, but something I think is really important to have is a good MANICURE. Do it yourself ladies. Nail salons generally gross me out and doing it myself saves me time, effort, and money. I say do light pink, think nude/pink tones. Layer on a base coat, 2 super light layers of polish, and no top coat. Spray with setting spray. OPI makes this fast drying spray and it actually works.
I like when the color isn’t even that noticeable. Also, if you mess up it is less noticeable.
Neutrals will always be in style, and it is all about making things appear fresh and new time and time again. Don’t wash yourself out, find the right tones for your skin, and of course a properly placed pop of color is a good thing. (ew do I sound like Martha Stewart here?!)
Also, a structured white blazer is so necessary for the Summer. Pair it with white pants or black pants and a black or white top for an elegant but sexy look. Either do a nude lip here or a red lip. If you do a red lip don’t add blush or eye color, only mascara!
Until next time, ciao!
