Some Basic beauty TIPS!!!!

Some basics you may or may not know…..works for me ….

LOCK IT IN

When using cream-based beauty products — like lipstick or foundation — apply a dry face powder on top to seal in your look. This also works for blush (apply a cream blush to cheeks, then top with a dry blush).

What to keep….Spring…

As the Warm weather will begin to rollout , a wardrobe clean-out might well be on the cards……(PS. Dont forget i can help with this) …
Doing it properly means being ruthless, whether you adhere to the philosophy of a curated wardrobe or not. But knowing what to keep is just as important as knowing what to throw away. Otherwise, come the change in season, you’ll be left saying that awful phrase of damn, I wish I’d kept my….

As spring shall approach our thoughts turn to our closets. More specifically, what’s in our closets. We get excited about the idea of packing away the sweaters, boots, and fleeces, and pulling out the warm weather clothes.

Before diving in and choosing a springtime look, let’s see what we can keep from last season……

Peplum
Wedge sneakers
Bright blazers
Emerald anything….
Capes
Oriental inspired clothing
Leather..perhaps the lighterweight versions….
Retro pieces
Metallics

the GREAT gatsby

So the big screen adaption of “The Great Gatsby” is shining a spotlight on The  twenties  fashions, from drop-waist dresses and head scarves to bow ties and spectator shoes, glittering jewels , bold lips, and crisp suits for the gents and fabulous head pieces abound and I’m loving all of it. .
A novel which i read at  school as part of my setwork has finally come to life…….(actually this is third time round but i missed the other 2—- so for me the first)
The twenties fashion definately does NOT require a wallet the size of Jay Gatsby’s to get the look.
There are plenty of choices if you want to dress head-to-toe or just spice up your wardrobe with a few accent pieces like a retro print head scarf, faux pearl or some bling. So if you want to recreate the style from the movie just mix and match, using items from a variety of stores…… but lets keep it simple!!!!!
