Any beauty enthusiast understands the reason for buying a new lipstick practically in the same shade you have at home in three other brands. Will it ever stop her? No, probably not. Maybe it’s the feeling behind finding new and beautiful hues, or the anticipation of unraveling the cute packaging to uncover your most perfect pop of color with a twist of a tube. We all know that incredible feeling of finding that perfect shade that makes your mouth water and your heart swoon. For all our lippie-crazed beauties (ourselves included), here are a few fall lip trends we’re getting excited about for the season!

That’s So Kylie
You may be sad to see the summer weather go, but by no means are we sad to experiment with the adventurous, mysterious colors of fall. The only place you should be feeling blue is on your lips. Blue lips have been spotted on celebrities like Kylie Jenner, and as we’ve seen with Kylie, it’s an easy, edgy way to add a twist to your look while making it a fun and easy transition into fall. It’s unexpectedly perfect like Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit matte lipstick liner in “SKYLIE.”

Pink Hues
From the NYFW Fall 2016 runway with Marchesa, the Painted Lady was a vision exuding an effortless sophistication and the epitome of a lovely lady, all of which brings to mind blushing pinks and delicate nudes. A few of our favorites include Tom Ford’s lipstick in “Blush.”

Very Berry
Those who are in the mood to bring out a little bit of their dark side will enjoy dark burgundy lips. The whole “dark fairy,” tough girl with a little sass has been the mood for this season and has been seen all over social media and the runways. If you haven’t already fallen in love with this trend, we highly recommend you consider getting to know your dark side. It’s a trend worth learning how to master; that feeling of finally mastering the perfect pout will turn heads of even the most skilled and talented makeup artists and beauty gurus.

What NYFW Means For Spring and Summer Trends


We all know that New York Fashion Week is the ultimate preview for what will be in for the upcoming seasons, but sometimes it can be hard to decipher what NYFW actually means for spring/summer trends. Who has the time to sift through all of the different shows and pick out what will actually become a trend, and what will stay behind at the event? We do, of course. We have put together an easy guide for what you should be wearing come warmer months.



Forever 21 Pinstripe Chambray Shirt, $10, forever21.com


Pinstripes have already made their debut as a chic addition to any outfit for fall, but come spring, they are going to hit it big. This ultra flattering pattern can be worn as a neutral piece, and therefore can go with anything. Designers Claudi Li and Adam Selman, among others, showcased this trend in their shows and we are sure to see more of it soon.

White on White

Again, we have seen all-white-everything looks from a few trendsetters, but this chic style will hit the mainstream market in the next few months. From matching sets, to white jeans paired with a crisp white blouse, the white craze will pop up in unique ways.

Hot Pink

Finally the day has come where we all get to embrace our inner Elle Woods, because hot pink is HOT. The gloriously girly color was all over NYFW and we cannot wait until it heats back up and we get to step out in this bright color.
Between Kendall and Kylie Jenner taking the runway by storm, Tom Ford returning to the New York fashion scene after a six year hiatus, and the introduction of “See Now, Buy Now” runway clothes, this fashion week was one for the books. We can’t wait for the next fashion week and to see these trends spring to life, comewell, spring.

It’s all about femininity and simplicity that manages to be both natural and alluring with fresh makeup, well-groomed brows, and a bold pout. Effortless beauty, once again, proves its reign in 2016, so here are the must-have lip color trends this spring that we’re dying to share with you.

We all know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look good or to have good quality. Milani’s Color Statement Lipsticks are a must in every girl’s lipstick collection. These babies will change your world as they have a light and creamy consistency with rich pigmentation and a wide color scheme. Formulated with vitamins A and C, these lipsticks give a moisturizing and nourishing feel, so there’s no need to sweat the thought of dry, feathery lips midway through the day. Milani can be found at drugstores such as Walgreens and CVS and is priced anywhere from $4.99-5.99 depending upon store and location. Well-loved and popular picks that will look stellar and on trend for this season are Best Red, the perfect go-to red; Rose Hip, a beautiful pink to get you feeling in the mood for spring’s beautiful weather, and Uptown Mauve, a gorgeous in-between of pink and fushia. With Milani’s smooth and long lasting formula, a lip liner is optional, but not a must.

Spring Beauty Trends


During the recent spring 2015 runway collections, beauty trends featured refreshing looks with flashes of color and the au naturale. The free spirit was definitely present and an inspiration in many of these looks from modern-day hippie with romantic vibes to biker chick with an edge. It is all about experimenting with your inner self this spring and stepping into a style you never have tried before. Add a touch of color to your eyes. Stand out with plum-tinted lips. Kick up your wing liner with the perfect line. Show us that natural beauty you have with only hints of blush or polish. Less is more and spring is a sure signifier of that through all of its natural beauty, just like you. Are you ready for this gorgeous season? I know I am! Try something a bit different with these stunning beauty trends that are all about flaunting what you already have.
Sugar Plum
We’re stepping outside of the classic box this season with an introduction to the plum shade—one that will definitely become your classic in spring. This attractive shade can easily be built up or down. Plum this season was even featured on the eyes by smudging lip products softly across the lids as eyeshadows. Who would’ve thought?! The shade is a soft, yet bold color that will last perfectly throughout the day without taking up too much attention.

That Red Lip
Of course the red lip isn’t going anywhere this season, but its array of shades has definitely widened our beauty horizons. With orange undertones, the red lip has toned it down a notch into a color that can be worn all day and night. Talk about an easy transition! For that classic red lip that we love on Taylor Swift, line your lips first before filling them in with your favorite shade of red. Everything will be built into that perfect red statement that is bold everywhere you go.

Textured Touch
Put those hot hair tools away during this spring season and rock what your momma gave you! Let your natural hair go with the wind—literally. Say no more to curling and straightening, at least for this season. Apply hair products from Redken or Tresemmé that will emphasize the natural texture in your hair. For a quick ‘do without the hassle in the morning, get a head start at night; add your favorite texturizing product, split your hair into two braids, and then let free in the morning. You’ll be left with soft waves that will last even days later!

The Perfect Black Lines
Black liner is a definite go-to for all of us, ladies. Am I right? It’s time to really put our lining skills to the test throughout the spring season—let’s aim for that perfect black line. Now we know there is no such thing as perfect, but with the darkest shade of black eyeliner, it comes close. Try one from the brands Butter London or Shiseido and apply in a thick manner instead of a thin line. You’ll create a dramatic and dark look just right for a night out.

Bare Natural
Show some bare-faced skin and nails in these blooming months. Let your natural self shine through with hints of rose blush and parts of your nails painted. Instead of getting done up fully, use less than usual—a light brush of bronzer, a pat of cream blush, and a hint of highlighter or concealer. You’ll create a fresh-faced look that will not only look good, but feel good as well. It’s all about becoming extremely comfortable in your own skin, gals. What better way to love yourself? For your nails, opt for painting them in half moons with a soft shade or accenting them with a stripe of color. Let the rest of your nail be bare to create a blank space—yes, like the Taylor Swift song. Except literally.

Miley Cyrus Shocks at the AmfAr Gala


Miley Cyrus shocks at the AmfAr Gala!

Wednesday night at the American Foundation for AIDS Research LA Inspiration Gala, the “Wrecking Ball” singer turned heads as she posed for paparazzi. According to Huffington Post, Cyrus wore a black Tom Ford dress with criss-crossing sequined straps and a sheer top. The designer, Ford, was honored for his work with AmfAR last night.

Though this look would have been scandalous years ago and maybe still today if worn by a different celebrity–Taylor Swift maybe–this look seems right on Cyrus: fits her personality and style. Plus, the former Hannah Montana star looks good. She’s in great shape; good for her if she wants to be proud of her body and wear a daring dress.

According to E! Online, Cyrus also donated money to the organization; after getting into a bidding war with Ford and fellow attendee and fearless risqué dresser Rihanna, Cyrus paid an incredible $300,000 on a print of a naked woman, shot by photographer Ryan McGinley.

Her reason for spending such a great amount of money: “I’m a little drunk. That’s why I’m a half a million deep.”

On a more serious note, Cyrus stated, “If I’m going to have a voice I would like to start an open dialogue about prevention and awareness and how people in the world have been effected by HIV and AIDS.”

Cyrus also said, “Hopefully, I could break down people’s walls that have been built up around sexuality. I’m obviously not too embarrassed to talk about these things, especially with young people.”

Tom Ford Gets Secretly Married


Tom Ford, the well-known fashion designer revealed that he is indeed married to his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley. The exciting news was revealed at the Regent Street Apple store in London last night, while Ford was chatting to Kinvara Balfour. He didn’t make a lavish announcement, but instead casually slid it into the conversation rather nonchalantly. “I lost so many friends in college – I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married which is nice,” he said. “I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the states.” (Glamour Magazine)
So Tom Ford gets secretly married, and nobody finds out until he decides to tell them? Talk about being in control of your personal life. The happy couple met at a fashion show back in the 80’s, and have a son together, Alexander John Buckley Ford. After being together for so long it was only right that these love birds finally made it official. I wish Tom and Richard all the best in their new marriage, and send out a huge congratulations to the newlyweds!
