Pretty Ways To Wear A Scarf In Your Hair This Summer

dolce-and-gabanna-spring-summer-2013Donning a scarf in your hair is one of the simplest ways to look totally chic in sweltering heat while perfectly hiding your frizz and flyaways. It’s been on my list of styles to master, and this summer I’m going for it. Tying a scarf around your simple up-do, a-la the models at the Dolce & Gabanna Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show (above) is on of the easiest to master. I love this silk gingham scarf by Kate Spade, $100.

NYFW Fall 2013 Makeup Recap: Nude Lips Reigned

jenny-packham-laura-mercier-nyfw-fall-2013It was all about a minimal lip at NYFW. These looks are so purdy that ladies, you might be tempted to use up your oxblood lipsticks as fast as you can. The natural lip made the models look really fresh and beautiful, with a tinge of 90’s grunge — whether paired with an edgy geometric cat eye, a punk smoky eye or an all-over natural face. Most of these looks were created with only the use of lip balm (MAC Lip Conditioner, $15, was often the balm of choice), though some used concealer to tone down redness in the lip and others used nude shades of lip liner. The best trick came courtesy of makeup artist Talia Shobrook at the Jenny Packham show (above). To create an ultra-feminine lip, Shobrook applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Seashell, $24 onto the lip’s Cupid’s bow, the curve of the upper lip. This subtle highlighting creates the illusion of a fuller lip and adds definition to lip shape. Adding the final touch, Shobrook lightly dabbed lips with Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush, $26. Here are other nude lip looks we loved from New York Fashion week:

White Hot Nails


The standout nail trend on the spring 2013 runways was bright white nails. It’s a refreshing and slightly edgy version of the neutrals we typically see for spring. When I spied the opaque white at Rag & Bone (below), I was smitten.

What do you think about white nail polish?  Yay or nay?
