Tips on how to update your look or change it completely!

16 Oct

I came across this YouTube video from Vintage Vanity, and I thought this was also helpful for incorporating ANY new style into your current wardrobe.

Start small and build!

Fall is the perfect time to change up your look.

Also, this is the perfect time to talk about about my favorite  makeover of all time…Courtney Love.

Here are some additional tips from RedBook Magazine:

1. Look in the mirror. 
Ask yourself: Am I doing this for me or to please someone else? If it’s about you, keep going: How do I want to present myself? What do I feel good about? What do I want to update? Let the changes you make reveal the real you. (Have an outgoing personality? Try some bolder colors!)

2. Clean out your closet. 
Make three piles: one for items that fit well and make you feel great, one for items that need tailoring, and one for items to donate or toss. Clearing out clutter helps you assess what you still need and makes room for a hot new wardrobe — and lets you appreciate what you already own.

3. Find a fashion mentor. 
Share your mission with one of your stylish girlfriends. Ask her to dish her secrets: What designers does she love? Is she free to take you shopping? If you hit the mall solo, get advice from a chic store clerk about what silhouettes and colors might look good on you.

4. Experiment. 
Give yourself permission to try a look that you may think “isn’t you.” Once you step out of your wardrobe safety zone, you’ll see your fashion possibilities in a whole new way. And if the look doesn’t feel quite right, ask yourself which parts did work. You may find a single new element to make your own.

5. Don’t give up. 
The best thing about a style change is that if you don’t love it, you can leave it. New jacket looks a little too funky? Return it! Haircut a bit short? It’ll grow back! As you develop your look, you’ll see what clothes and makeup bring out the best version of you — and build confidence along the way.

5 Must-Try Fall Hairstyles This Year

Fall of 2013 hair trends are all about simple, clean, and chic. No matter what look, texture, or length, here are five ways to get the trendy looks of the season. Great for a day running errands, weekend brunch, a day at work or a night on the town, each look goes well with jeans or a cocktail dress. Have fun with it!

Stylish Fall Hairstyles to Try This 2013

unknown 5 Must Try Fall Hairstyles This Year

1. Low Side-Ponytail. Quite possibly the easiest ‘do to get done, simply pull your locks to the side and wrap with an elastic band or ribbon. Great messy or sleek, play around with the ideal texture for your length and type of hair. My favorite touch is to tease up the ponytail – it gives volume and that classic “bedhead” look I’m obsessed with.

2. Hidden Braid.  The infamous Kim does it well. I love the hidden braid because you can customize it to fit your hair and look. My favorite spin on the style is to take a lock underneath and to the side, then braid it loose. Go for one and done or several and tiny – however you feel, there’s no going wrong with this one!

3. The Barrette. Very hip and a small blast from the past, this look you can style high, low, straight back, or to the side. My go-to is a vintage barrette and by way of simple pin to the side. I also love swapping a classic hair-tie for the pin – same overall look but with a twist.

4. Looped Fishtail. Of the more time-consuming looks I love, still, for the time you spend you get much more look for your minute than you’d ever expect. Here is a tutorial for the classic.

5. Volumed Straight. My go-to for day and night, simply straighten your hair and throughout, tease and scrunch your hair at the roots. The end result is a straight mane that has some bounce. Easy and beautiful!

NYX Love Continues and Possible Naked Dupe?

8 Jul

I went to Ulta, got a cutetastic headband that Kassi already posted, and got a NYX palette.

Natural

I am freaking impressed with NYX lately.  I love the blush I got in my Ipsy June Glam Bag.  And I love these shadows!!!   BTW, I’m wearing them in this photo. https://yourfairygodmothers.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/photo-5.jpg

They are super blendable and a good selection of the neutral colors.  Sure, you’re getting 6 colors to the Urban Decay’s 12, but for a fraction of the cost.

That dark brown, is delicious.  I want to marry it.

Go get  you some!
