DOES YOUR FACE MIRROR THE TRUE YOU?

I have a confession. I’m an upbeat, annoyingly happy person who LOVES to smile. In fact, my smile is often the first thing my friends compliment me on! But lately, I’ve noticed that my neutral facial expression occasionally doesn’t mirror that “cheerful” me. You may have heard of the phenomenon called RBFS or Relaxing Bitchy Face Syndrome. Well, I’m pretty sure I suffer from it (& apparently so do many celebrities)!

I first noticed it after a water exercise class in Mexico when my mom asked me, “What’s wrong?” The question caught me off guard because what could possibly be wrong when I’m in Cancun? But apparently, my face looked unhappy throughout the entire class. I couldn’t believe it, the whole time I was actually thinking this is such a great workout, I LOVE the sun! If you’re like me and you also suffer from RBFS, keep reading to learn a few tips to put your best face forward and turn this negative trait into a positive one!

Check out your facial expression. Get in the habit of routinely looking at yourself to see what “default” face you’re showing. Do you need to adjust your look?

Pay attention to what your “default” face feels like. Do your muscles relax into a natural frown or are your eyebrows tense?

Develop and practice a new resting expression. Aim for a positive and friendly persona. Maybe a slight smile or opening up your eyes a bit more will do the trick.

I know. It’s hard work to change your natural expression. But you know what they say, practice makes perfect. And if that’s not working, a little anti-wrinkle cream will eliminate those unwanted frown lines and creases in your forehead.

We are in it together ladies!

Casual Denim Chic. Could Kate look any cuter running everyday errands? She really puts my yoga pants to shame. This casual blazer paired with skinny jeans is ultra chic. Plus the fashionable wedges tie the whole outfit together.

Brilliant Use of Bold Colors.  Kate knows exactly what colors flatter her skin tone. Whether donning sapphire blue, jade green or coral pink, her preference for bright colors is legendary. And who could blame her?

To get the look, apply a little blush to your cheeks and cover lightly with a powder. Next, add a little highlight to the corner of your eyes. Top it off with a rosy lip and you’ll be ready to channel your inner-angel!

The Orange is the New Black star looked beautiful in this canary yellow gown and short lob. And that red lip color? FABULOUS! I’m obsessed! It looks perfect with her radiant skin. After all, great skin is the best accessory you can bring to an award show.

Emma Roberts

Oh my bombshell! Emma looks stunning with her long, blonde curls swept off to the side paired with this elegant dress. And honestly, I don’t think her skin can get much more perfect – I can’t stop staring! I love how natural she kept her makeup with the dark lashes and rosy lip. Speaking of her lips, they look super hydrated and soft! To get my lips looking like Emma’s, I use my lip treatment every single night before bed. My lips have never been softer!

Sarah Hyland

This was by FAR my favorite dress of the evening – the color and style were both seriously on fleek. Sarah’s hazel eyes look gorgeous with this metallic shadow and natural lip. By the way, can her hair get any cuter?! She’s making me want to chop off my locks. I’m noticing a bright skin trend on the red carpet – how about you? Remember, vitamin C is key to getting that bright, glowing complexion like Sarah’s.

Kerry Washington

Obviously, the Scandal star makes my top 4 best beauty looks list. Kerry looks so pretty! I’m loving this faux lob with auburn highlights – it’s perfect for fall! She looked like a princess in this super embellished gown. I also like the pop of color her lips bring to her entire look. I read that Kerry uses a cleanser, toner, and eye gelee every single morning and night to keep her skin flawless.

How fun is this beauty trend?! The bold and colorful eyeliner grabs my attention and will be so fun to wear out and about. What I love most about this look is that you don’t really need any other makeup – the vibrant color is enough!

Cushnie Et Ochs.

These nails are so simple yet so chic – I’m obsessed! What an edgy way to keep your hands looking fabulous. And, since long, pointed nails are huge right now, this two-tone polish is a great way to mimic that look without actually needing to grow them out. It’s a win-win! Another way to keep your hands looking amazing? Read these tips!

Kate Spade.

gallery-1442068558-hbz-nyfw-ss16-beauty-kate-spade

This Kate Spade model’s warm glow is everything. It looks gorgeous! The thin line of silver eyeliner on the top lash line brightens her eyes, while the bubblegum pink on her lip adds the perfect amount color to her complexion.

Jason Wu.

A classic red lip always turns heads, but this look grabbed ALL of my attention! I read that Jason Wu wanted to create a youthful and fresh twist on the red lip, so he made sure to keep all other makeup off. It’s mesmerizing! When trying to recreate this look, make sure you’ve sloughed off all the dead skin with a gentle exfoliator – this will make your skin look stunning!

Are you looking forward to any of these beauty trends? – xo Kayla

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEY: BEST IN BEAUTY

Today is a national holiday – it’s Beyonce’s birthday! To honor Queen Bey on her special day, I’ve compiled my favorite beauty looks from throughout the years:

9-Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-On-the-Run-Tour-Outfits-Revealed

I am SO in love with this long-sleeved leotard that she wore during her On The Run tour last year. AH! Bey looks absolutely gorgeous in this colorful outfit paired with fishnet tights. And her shimmery gold eye shadow makes her look as fierce as ever to top the entire look off.

Beyonce_gl_30aug11_PA_426x639_1

This is still one of my all-time favorite looks from the Flawless singer. I love this simple side-swept style on the pop diva. She looks so natural! And this color was AMAZING on her skin tone. Speaking of skin, doesn’t Bey’s look fabulous? It’s so glowy and bright! Also, she has no fine lines or wrinkles – I read that Bey LOVES a good eye cream.

o-BEYONCE-900

Can you say H-O-T?! This black leather bodysuit certainly shows off Bey’s rockin’ bod. The plunging neckline, black netting, and black combat boots make this outfit a serious 10, and the exposed zipper is my favorite part of the whole look. Her loose, messy curls compliment this costume perfectly.

beyonce_glamour_5may15_getty_b_426x639

I’m slightly obsessed with this I Dream of Jeannie look. But then again, Bey can do no wrong! Her makeup is seriously perfect –  I love the winged liner and soft pink lip. And this dress? Jeweled amazingness! With all the red carpet appearances, shows, interviews, and publicity, her skin is always on point.

BEST IN BEAUTY: MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS 2015

In case you missed it, last night aired the MTV Video Music Awards and it was definitely a night to remember! The Red Carpet was filled with beachy waves, cat eyes, and unforgettable attire. Here are my 5 favorite beauty looks of the night:

1. Lily Aldridge

hbz-vma-beauty-lily

If there was a category for best beach waves at the award show, Lily would obviously take home the gold. Her effortless waves and natural makeup look amazing with this black plunging gown. I cannot get over how bright her skin is, too! She looks like a slightly sun-kissed goddess. To get a bronze glow like Lily’s without the damage, try Jane Iredale’s Tantasia ($36, janeiredale.com).

2. Taylor Swift

taylor-swift-600x800

Taylor, oh how I envy you. My girl was looking fierce as ever last night with this sleek ponytail and heavy winged liner. Although I love Tay’s classic red lip and loose waves look that she is known for, it was refreshing to see her edgier side on the Red Carpet. And her skin is ALWAYS spot on – so clear and even without a blemish in sight! I read that she applies SPF every single day to keep wrinkles and sun spots away.

3. Cara Delevingne

hbz-vma-beauty-cara

The Paper Towns star is known for her unique style and fashion trends and she certainly didn’t disappoint in that category last night. Also, no one can rock a deep side part quite like Cara can – am I right? Her bold brows and smoky eyes looked stunning at the award show, and her skin was my favorite part of all – her skin is always so hydrated! Be sure to keep your skin moisturized for a flawless finish like Cara’s.

4. Karlie Kloss

karlie-kloss-august-2015-mtv-vma-getty__large

If summertime beauty was a person, it’d be Karlie. The model looked gorgeous in this tangerine embellished dress and tousled locks. I’m happy she kept her makeup to a minimum – she obviously was going for the radiantly natural look.

Can I be in Taylor’s #squad by the way?

5. Kylie Jenner

I don’t know about you, but these blunt bangs are making me seriously consider getting a haircut soon. Kylie’s jet black ‘do and thick cat eye looked fab on the Red Carpet last night. Her dark lip and gorgeous skin helped to make this an unforgettable beauty look of the evening.
