Beauty Inspiration: The Bold Red Lip & A Low Sleek Bun

zac posen spring 2016 zac posen spring 2016
New York fashion week is in full swing and the beauty inspiration coming down the runways is on fire. One of my personal favorite hair and makeup moments so far is from the Zac Posen runway: red lips, highlighted skin and a low bun.

I know we’ve seen the look before but it’s so simple, pretty and feminine that it deserves more applause. Plus, it’s perfect for day or night, especially this coming fall.

To get the look makeup artist Diane Kendal kept things ultra bare on the makeup. She used foundation, silver strobe cream, blush and balm then topped the lips with a matte red. Easy enough!

What makeup trends are you into right now?

H&M Studio AW’15 Collection

IMG_9321 IMG_9213 IMG_9338
H&M’s Studio Collection is always my favorite! It’s H&M’s collection of key seasonal pieces, created by its own dedicated in-house design team. They show the collection in Paris (check it out here) and it’s a whole to-do in which H&M Studio sets the mood of the moment by showcasing directional fashion that’s accessible worldwide.

For fall 2015 the mood is outer-space with a reinterpreted-70’s vibe.

I got to get my hands on a piece of the collection early to wear to the Bloglovin’ Awards presented by H&M and am excited to rock the  futuristic ’70s dress with a celestial graphic print. It’s SO…loud! Isn’t it?

Beat The Heat In These Summer Dresses For Under $70

September is here but the heat is a blazing! In fact, here in LA it’s the hottest it’s been all summer long (nearly 100 every single day!). In effort to not melt, the beach and a pool are a must along with iced cold beverages on repeat.

Because it’s simply too hot to wear just about anything except for cute little dresses, I recently went on a dress/romper buying bender at Urban Outfitters with one simple rule: everything must be under $70. After all, fall is upon us….

From cute little floral numbers to bohemian breezy dresses, I found a handful of darling pieces that fit the bill and have been living in them to keep cool. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Lucca Couture Floral Chiffon Long-Sleeve Romper
2. Cooperative Layered Dress
3. Kimchi Blue Scarlett Fit + Flare Dress
4. Urban Renewal Remade Plain Jane Open Back Romper
5. Honey Punch Knot-Front T-Shirt Dress
6. Kimchi Blue Cutwork Tropical Sun Dress

Plus here are more great dresses for under $70:

Bandanas & Tassels

Two of my current go-to’s to add a little snazz to an outfit are a bandana around my neck (I know this has been everywhere but I was a late adopter, what can I say?!) and anything with tassels. They just give a boring outfit a little more ummphhhh. You know what I mean?

What are your umphhhh go-to’s?

Wearing H&M sweatshirt, H&M skirt, Saint Laurent Fringed Small Bucket Bag, Jimmy Choo Marlin boots & Ray-Ban Classic Wayfarer’s XL

AG Fall Denim

AG Fall Denim AG Fall Denim AG Fall Denim
I don’t know about you but I’m starting to get the fall itch. I feel ready for apple picking, pumpkin patches, autumn florals, warm drinks by the fireplace and most of all, fall clothing. I recently got my hands on AG’s fall denim collection and haven’t been able to take off this vintage inspired pair since. I love how extremely high waisted they are – it’s the perfect cut to be paired with cozy crop sweaters and half tuck long sleeves. Plus, they’re so versatile – I can bop around in them all day while working on lifestyle shoots for the blog then dress them up to host a dinner party at night.

Also on my denim wish list: wide legs.What denim are you looking forward to this fall?

I’m wearing: AG Sophia 4 Years Twilight Shredded, AG Rowan Blouse True Black, H&M belt and Balenciaga boots
