Hot Lips

Lips are meant to be accentuated! Simply slap on some lip colour to highlight your best natural accessory – your lips! Various hues of lip color can be used to create the perfect, classic look and make you feel ultra-chic. There are quite a few brands to choose from to achieve this bold, mysterious look. Here are a few of my faves…

The “Just Bitten” line by Revlon works wonders in creating a lasting lip color. Lip stains create a matte finish but require fewer touch-ups resulting in a defined, dark look that is easy to maintain.

Want to create a luscious, glossy look? The “Lipglass” collection by MAC is the best way to do this! They have an abundance of bright, rich hues to choose from. My personal favourite is called “pink poodle”. Want to plump up your pucker while adding a tint of color? I suggest the “Plushglass” collection by MAC to get that bee-stung look sans botox.

Whether you decide to go with a deep blood red, a bright cherry hue or a passionate purple tinge, lip color should be treated as an accessory. A way to accentuate even the simplest of outfits. A bold lip color combined with subtle eyes creates a timeless look that personifies beauty.

So paint on a little rouge to draw some attention to those HOT LIPS of yours!

Spring Ahead

Spring. Once again a time for change. A time for new beginnings. When the snow melts, the flowers bloom and the trees become a lush green once again! But the best part about spring… fashion! Here’s a look at some of the best and worst trends this spring season.

My favourite trend for this spring season is COLOUR! It seems the brightest and boldest colours have made a comeback. Orange blazers add a little bit of flair to a neutral dress or a jeans and tee combo.

My least favourite spring trend: polka-dot pants! Whoever said that over-sized clown-inspired legwear was trendy must have been part of the circus! There is nothing classy or trendy about looking like you belong at a five year old’s birthday party.

I’m on the fence about the following… patterned leggings. Leggings have been in for awhile now. My advice? Go with lacy or floral patterns. Animal print is okay too as long as it’s done tastefully. Avoid paisley, tie-dye or other really busy/tacky ones. Patterned leggings should always be paired with neutral-toned oversized tees or mini dresses. And remember, leggings are NOT pants (so cover up those cheeks)!
