“Yes-Merising” by Charlotte Tilbury

“Captivate the room in just one glance with my Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eye Shadow pots,” says Tilbury. The shadow is a genius cream-to-sheen formula that creates a maximum quality impact with minimum simple effort. The easy to apply shadow shines and stays on the lid all day without creasing – which means no need for mid-day touch ups! The shadow is the “ultimate foolproof product” as it forms part of Charlotte’s “One-Minute No-Mirror Makeup” routine.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise Long-Lasting Easy Cream Eyeshadow ($32) is available in six lustrous shades:

Bette is a warm, burnished chocolate shade, Cleopatra a vibrant, smokey peacock shade,
Jean a shimmering gold pink champagne shade, Marie Antoinette a soft golden mink shade, Mona Lisa a warm amber bronze shade and Veruschka a mink khaki shade.

Jean is a gorgeous shade of sparkling-pink champagne. The iconic beauty of Marilyn Monroe inspired the shade. For a timelessly chic result ideal for everyday wear, apply Charlotte’s The Classic Eyeliner Powder Pencil in Sophia ($22).

Soft-focus, illuminating pigments smooth over the delicate eye area, blurring lines and imperfections for a visibly flawless finish. Using your fingertips to apply the shadow creates a sheer wash of color across the eyelid for a flattering look; however, using a damp or dry brush for application across the eyelid, and lower lash line for high-impact, will create a more dramatic effect.

What’s in My Bag?

Smaller camera bags were seen on the S/S 16 runways a lot last year. Storing all your daily essentials, these bags are structured an easy to wear. The trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere following the popularity of Mansur’s Gavriel’s sold-out-everywhere bucket bag. For girls on the go, the handbag style provides form and function. The mini bag madness took over for Spring 2016 as the trend was seen in the collections of Chanel and Gucci in either classic black or brighter floral prints. The mini bag is a trend applicable to all styles for all fashion girls.

As a crossbody girl, I’ve learned how to easily consolidate my daily carry all into an approximately 7” x 9” x 3” handbag.

Valentino

First off, my car keys and house keys with the gym membership card attached that I haven’t belonged to for months now.

My Louis Vuitton key pouch in Damier Azur Canvas to hold my credit card, debit card, Lord & Taylor card, etc. and some spare cash without the inconvenience of a big chunky wallet

A Kind bar and Special K bar because I panic when I don’t have food on me

A pack of Trident whitening gum for after my snack

A small bottle of Tylenol and some feminine products because you never know when Aunt Flow is going to crash the party

A to-go packet of Kleenex tissues

Some Wet Ones or hand sanitizer – I’m quite the germaphobe so I keep both on me.

Softlips chapstick because nothing makes me crankier than having dry lips – I also love Blistex Silk and Shine and Blistex Soft and Lush

A mini eyeglasses kit because my sunglasses seem to always get loose and fall apart – thanks Marc Jacobs

And last but not least, a mini bottle of mace because my boyfriend wanted to know I was safe while I was living in Manhattan

DIY Coconut Oil Hair Products

Coconut oil is a not only good for your health, but also your overall well-being. High in natural saturated fats, coconut oil increases the healthy cholesterol – HDL – in your body helping to convert the bad cholesterol – LDL – into good cholesterol.

Coconut oil works as a natural way to help your hair grow longer, thicker, and faster. The vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in coconut oil nourish the scalp and help to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles. Coconut oil’s full of vitamin E, which is the most moisturizing thing you can give your skin.

Because it is comprised mainly of smaller medium-chain fatty acids, the oil of the coconut penetrates hair more deeply and faster than other conditioners.

Here are some home remedies to get rid of frizz, repair those split ends and thrill your scalp with moisture:

Make Your Own Exfoliating Scrub

It’s a common goal for most girls to want to achieve healthy and glowing skin, and the important of exfoliation in your morning routine is key to achieving that goal. Exfoliation is the removal of dry or dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. When old skin cells start to pile up your skin begins to look dry, rough and dull. This build up will result in clogged pores and excess oils, which often lead to blemishes and acne.

Not only does exfoliating help several skin problems, but it also increases blood circulation resulting in healthier glowing skin. Exfoliation can lessen the occurrence of blackheads on your face and enhance your body’s skin making it much softer and smooth.

Unfortunately, most best selling facial exfoliators can be quite expensive, so continue reading to learn how to make your own:

What you’ll need:

1 bear of honey
1 small bottle of olive oil
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of white sugar
2 cups of lemon juice

Apply lemon juice to any of the following scrubs for anti-reddening. The astringent properties in lemon juice suck out oil and shrink the blemish.

What you do:

For a face and body exfoliator,

Mix 4 tbsp. of honey with 1 tsp. of brown sugar (you can add more as you feel needed for body scrub).

Scrub honey and brown sugar mixture on your face and let sit for 15 minutes. Make sure to wash your hands before applying to your face.

After 15 minutes, wash your hands again and rinse off with warm water – you may need a fresh washcloth to get rid of the stickiness, just be gentle!

 

For a lip exfoliator,

Mix 1 tbsp. of coconut oil with 1 tsp. of white sugar.

Gently, scrub the mixture onto your lips for about one minute – make sure to wash your hands before application!

Rinse off.

 

For a skin moisturizer, because moisturizing after exfoliation is so important,

Mix 4 tbsp. of honey with 1/2 cup of olive oil.

Gently apply the mixture to your face and rub in – make sure to wash your hands before application!

Rinse off.

About Chanel

Chanel is a fashion and beauty company featuring French couture inspired by Parisian looks. Chanel No. 5, launched in 1921, has become a historical staple of the brand as it established the foundation for the designer to create other beauty products further developing Chanel’s fragrance, makeup and skincare lines.

Chanel was founded in Paris, France by designer Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel in 1909. She adapted the name “Coco Chanel” and opened her first store, which was partly for hat making. Mademoiselle Chanel introduced modern day fashion to the wealthy conservatives of the early 19th-century accommodating to the Parisian style of sophistication and class.

The luxury brand caters to men and women internationally earning approximately $5.2 billion in sales. The privately held fashion company is headquartered in New York City and based out of Paris, France, but has boutiques located across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Beauty Tips from Angelina Jolie

The mother of six has transformed from being one of Hollywood’s most dangerous girls to a respected actress, director and humans rights advocate. Angelina Jolie is a true example of what it means to be beautiful on the inside and out. Her naturalistic beauty is something to admire, but also learn.

angelina-jolie-beauty-tips

1. One beauty lesson from Angelina Jolie is don’t underestimate the power of simplicity. A fresh look of nude gloss, a little black dress and a bold red lip is one of Jolie’s go-to styles. She is the queen of the subtle yet strong look. I don’t think anyone has ever seen her experimenting with trends – which she makes a good thing.

2. Good brows change everything. Remember when plucked brows were the signature look of Jolie in the 90s? The well-groomed brows complemented her angular face with their natural softening look.

3. Find what works for you and stick to it. After much experimenting in her younger Hollywood years, Jolie has found what works for her and has stuck to it: a simple cat eye, subtle smokey eye, classic up-dos, glowing skin, and voluptuous bombshell hair.

4. Taking good care of your skin is critical. We all can’t forget that Angelina Jolie did have her wild days before entering her more reformed years, but glowing skin like hers is not without effort. An effort-full skincare regime is what keeps Jolie’s skin beautifully radiant, not Botox.

5. And last but not least, inner beauty is way more important than makeup ever will be. Despite her endless beauty, Angelina Jolie has a heart of gold and that is what makes her the incredible, admirable woman that she is. Her advocacy for human rights and her desire to help those around the world inspires others, rather than just pleasing the eye.

Angelina Jolie has ventured back into the beauty world as she filmed her first commercial for Guerlain Parfumeur. She has not been involved with any beauty campaigns since Shisheido in 2007.

“Notes of a Woman” is the title of the new fragrance commercial released Monday, Feb. 27, by Guerlain, in which Jolie frolics and pampers herself in the French countryside. Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s master perfumer said Jolie inspired the fragrance as it is meant to evoke “the choices, emotions, and dreams that embody modern femininity.”

Jolie told Elle Magazine that she was compelled to partner with Guerlain because it reminded her of her mother, who used a powder from the brand. The selfless woman that Angelina Jolie is, she donated all of the pay she would have received from the endorsement to charity.

NYFW F/W 2017: Lavish Attire

New York Fashion Week – Feb. 9 to Feb. 16 – was the first city to allow high fashion designers to present their Fall/Winter 2017 collections. Designers combined elegant and edgy in both their daywear and evening wear. Featured designers include Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s Marchesa gowns, gorgeous Carolina Herrera and classic Oscar de la Renta.

alice-olivia-by-stacey-bendet-fw-17

Stacey Bendet’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection for Alice & Olivia was inspired by Salman Rushdie’s novel “The Enchantress of Florence.” “One of the themes running through the book is that a lost princess is creating her own destiny in a man’s world,” said Bendet. The contemporary designer is known for empowering women as she employs hundreds of women and has three daughters of her own. In the collection she combined fairytale-like feminine style with modern trends, specifically floral prints & darker hues.

Badgley Mischka featured much sparkle in its Fall/Winter 2017 collection this NYFW. The American fashion label designed by Mark Badgley and James Mischka presented elegant, sophisticated evening wear: covetable gowns with metallic accents and various silhouettes lined with glitter.

Carolina Herrera F:W 17.png

The angelic Carolina Herrera gown can be worn to a Fall wedding or ball. The upper gold metallic long sleeve top captures one’s attention and would compliment a golden glitter eye shadow. The top is contrasted by the subtle nude floor length skirt.

christian-siriano-fw-17

The Christian Siriano gown can be worn to a Winter wedding or Holiday party. The  sparkling skirt with a slit at the thigh features black & dark golden metallic stripes. The subtle black top contrasts the  glittering bottom while keeping you cool with it’s strapless detail (if the heat is on too high). The side pony emphasizes the edginess of the style and the matching sparkly heels channel the model’s inner party girl.

delpozo-fw-17

Delpozo’s Creative Director Josep Font presented symmetrical designs for daywear in the label’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection this NYFW. The runway featured inventive shirting, peplum tops and trousers of deep blue, amber, burgundy and green hues. He attracted the season’s color palette from the works of Hungarian painter Jøzsef Rippl-Rønai – a member of a group of Post-Impressionist artists of the 1890s – and his silhouettes from Max Bill – a Swiss architect and sculptor.

erin-fetherston-fw-17

Erin Fetherston applied the Parisian style she adopted while studying fashion design at Parson’s School of Design in Paris to her Fall/Winter 2017 collection. The burgundy floor-length gown is flowing yet symmetrical – aka chic.

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig for Marchesa were inspired by Imperial China for this NYFW’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection. “We mixed in new color stories  that we haven’t done before. And we had a lot of fun,” said Craig. The runway presentation featured elaborate couture gowns with cap-sleeves, black Chantilly lace, floral embroidery and embellished sequin detail.

Oscar de la Renta’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection was presented at NYFW sharing the runway with Monse. The Monse models walked first, then Oscar de la Renta’s and both designers featured colorful metallic sequins in their collections. The previous founders of Monse – Laura Kim & Fernando Garcia – made their runway debut as Oscar de la Renta’s new co-creative directors.

KARL LAGERFELD TO PRESENT CHANEL’S SPRING-SUMMER 2017 HAUTE COUTURE SHOW

New York, New York — Karl Lagerfeld will present Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture Show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, March 8, at 10:30 a.m. at the Grand Palais. Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer and Creative Director of Chanel, focuses on tailoring as he feels it is a neglected art in womenswear today. The show will feature the classic Chanel tweed suit but in bright colors – mint, checkered pink, peach, lavender and yellow – slightly channeling the ‘80s. The collection will feature designs of silver sparkles, elegant silhouettes, and an ankle-length beige checkered coat with un peu glitter and finished with a sequined collar and cuffs.

“I wanted something impeccable, clean. I wanted the girls to look like walking fashion drawings,” said Karl Lagerfeld, adding, “And I must say, I love feathers!” The creative director does not fail to uphold the standards held by Gabrielle Chanel: “Chanel is above all a style. Fashion passes, style remains.”

In his late teen years, Lagerfeld had begun a full time job with French designer Pierre Balmain as a Junior Assistant and then as an apprentice. After three years with Balmain, the young designer took work as a Creative Director with another fashion house before finally, venturing out on his own in 1961. He found himself designing collections for high fashion labels like Chloe and Fendi.

Karl Lagerfeld has designed for Chanel since 1983 and continues to prove himself in each collection he presents. The designer, artist and photographer is based in Paris where he works as the head designer for the fashion house Chanel, Italian fashion house Fendi, and his own fashion label – Karl Lagerfeld. Lagerfeld is known for having made Chanel the biggest designer name in the world. The label used to be worn primarily by Parisian doctors’ wives and now the designer as become a global style icon for his work with the label. He knows how to make a catwalk moment and has adopted the strategy of “my life and my job is to forget myself” and describes himself as being “like a computer plugged into the Chanel mode.” He is known in the industry for his innovative styles using inspiration from designs of the past and working them into in-the-moment designs.

The high fashion designer attended Lycée Montaigne, a famous French public secondary school located in the sixth arrondissement of Paris, near the Jardin du Luxembourg. He studied drawing and history and submitted a series of sketches and fabric samples to a design competition where he ended up taking first place in the coat category. He speaks several languages, has published books of his art photography, and owns a bookshop in Paris. By 1997, Vogue crowned Lagerfeld “unparalleled interpreter of the mood of the moment.”
