Wine Lips

15 Nov

Red lips has had its moment for the past few seasons and I love it! But this fall we’ve seen another lip color rocking the runway: WINE! Wine colors are a great way to make a statement for fall and holiday parties, so drink up! The colors look great on a variety of skin tones and it’s actually really easy to wear. They come in mattes, stains and glosses so you’re sure to find the best fit for you. If you’re nervous you won’t be able to pull the look off… don’t be! Just keep the rest of your makeup clean. Winged eyeliner and mascara would do or even a nude/shimmer shadow.

For fair skinned blondes, take a cue from Emma Stone. She kept her eyes fresh and her lips really popped.


For light skinned brunettes, take a cue from Lily Collins. She pulls her look together beautifully with long lashes and a shimmery shadow.

If you’re feeling daring, you can go even darker like Camille Belle.

There really isn’t a perfect way to find your shade, you just have to experiment until you find it!  If you’re still a little nervous to try this bold statement, start with a stain or drink a few glasses of wine haha! You’ll get used to the look, then you can move up to either a matte or gloss. Find what works best for you and your skin tone.

Sock Bun

24 Oct

Buns are no longer just for ballerinas! My newest obsession: the sock bun. It takes less than 5 minutes, and after you take it out you’re left with beautiful curls (especially if you sleep in it)! It’s great for when you don’t have time to do your hair, or when you want to look polished and put together. There’s something so chic and sophisticated with these buns. For me, the bigger and messier, the better!

Love the Braid!

If you don’t want to use a sock, I’ve been using this great foam ring from H&M and it works great. It comes in 3 colors so you’re sure to find one to match your hair color. Once the bun is in, I like to pull on the sides to make it bigger and fuller but if you like a tighter bun just leave it.

Here’s a great visual tutorial:
