A Pop Of Red

20 Dec

One way to add impact and interest to your outfit, is to add a pop of color.

While the easiest options are colored shoes or a colored bag, they’re certainly not all that’s available to you.

Here’s some ideas to get you thinking…

*Make sure you don’t overdo the amount of colors you wear in one outfit.  While some clever people can combine several different colors very well, for most of us it’s a good idea (so that we don’t appear confused) to limit ourselves to only a couple. (As demonstrated above)

A Summer Style Goal

15 Sep

One of my summer style goals is to get my fingernails (which I’ve mentioned before are not one of my best features) into shape so I can paint them red.

I love the impact a painted nail can have on an outfit, particularly when highlighted against basic pieces like a white shirt, a navy and white striped tee or a black knit.

And while I never paint my finger nails I almost always paint my toes.   My current favourite’s are Revlon Chilli and Chanel Rouge Noir.

Keep in mind painting your nails,  just like wearing  a brightly colored lip, is another way to decorate your clothes.

The Impact Eyebrows Have On Your Face

4 Sep

I know these photos of Pamela Anderson on the cover of this magazine are completely manipulated, but looking beyond that what you can see is the huge impact eyebrows can make to your face

I think the pictures speak for themselves and I don’t need to say much more about it other than, I over-plucked my eyebrows when I was younger and now in my forties I’m trying to thicken them up and they won’t completely grow back. One of the reasons I want thicker brows is because as I get older I want to wear less makeup and for me less eye makeup looks better with thicker brows.

If you’re young and reading this, take it from me, hold off touching your brows for as long as you can.  If you feel you need to have them shaped, remove hairs very sparingly or get an expert to guide you.

Here’s a great video from one of my favourite make-up artists Lisa Eldridge,  about how to groom your brows and this is another good video about how to recreate eyebrows if you’ve lost them through illness.
