THE REAL WINNERS OF THE 2016 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS

This year’s Golden Globes red carpet left me feeling inspired thanks to the shining “stars” on display at the event. It was a night full of glamour, beauty, and must-copy styles. The hottest trends I fell in love with? Smoky eyes, big lashes, and radiant skin. So, get your Pinterest boards ready – here are the best beauty looks from the night.

Jennifer Lopez took the red carpet to a whole new level when she stepped out in this gorgeous yellow gown. I love how she stayed true to her signature sexy style but added the elegant cape detail to this flattering form-fitting gown. And check out her retro waves, bold lip, and bling — the perfect finish to her already fabulous outfit!

Kirsten Dunst didn’t disappoint with her super sophisticated style. To go with her sultry, plunging velvet dress, she used nude hues on her lips and cheeks then upped the drama by adding dark shades to create stunning smoky eyes.

What’s an award show without a stunning, lit-from-within look? Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was a golden goddess whose sun-kissed skin simply glowed. How does she do it? She must use a radiant face crème like Enza Essentials Sustaining Glow Crème.

“It Girl” Amy Schumer went all out in this classic black and white gown. Just when I thought the only thing you want to match is your clothes, Amy Schumer proves me wrong! She makes a case for matching your eye makeup with your outfit.

channing-tatum-jenna-dewan-golden-globes-2016-04

Jenna Dewan Tatum is a dream sporting this sequined, low cut gown. And look at those eyes – perfectly matching the shades of her dress. I’m starting to notice a red carpet trend.

What Red Carpet trend will you copy?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE CLASSY AND FASHIONABLE KATE, DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

It didn’t take long for the public to see why Kate Middleton caught the eye of Prince William. Her signature looks and personal style definitely stand out from the crowd. So what’s her fashion and beauty secret? Perfectly fitting clothes and her determination to stay true to what looks great on her. Here are some of Kate’s spot-on fashions.

Modern Take on Lace. Think lace is outdated? I don’t think so! Kate completely stuns in this fitted black lace gown. All I can say is, where is the red carpet? She definitely fits in with the Hollywood elite.

Timeless Elegant Classic. Entirely gorgeous in this flowing teal formal, Kate knows how to steal the show. And her sophisticated up-do hairstyle and glowing skin? A perfect combination for the evening.

Royal and Refined. The English love their hats – from the funky and outrageous to the trim and graceful. Kate looks every bit the distinguished princess in this subtle but stunning ensemble in blush pink.

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?

DAZZLE IN GOLD THIS NEW YEARS EVE

Have you found that stunning and striking outfit to ring in 2016? As much as I love the classic black dress with a red lip, I decided to switch it up this year with a cream and gold sequin dress. Still gorgeous AND sporting some sparkle – an absolute must for New Years Eve!

1914943_10208376137186955_9157092925624934650_n

I love the softness of the cream chiffon skirt paired with glamorous gold sequins. Not only is it an elegant color combination, the fitted top creates a super flattering look!

Strappy nude sandals are the perfect complement to the neutral-toned dress. Not too flamboyant – just a timeless and classic look.

For the most kissable lips, I used Jane Iredales Tangerine Lip Gloss, a shiny yet subtle lip color. This is a definite must-apply right before the ball drops!

270

And before heading out for the night, add a light layer of Enza Essentials Liquid Gold to your face prior to applying concealer and powder. You deserve to treat yourself to a little bit of luxury this special night.

Bring on 2016!  Have a sparkly and festive New Years!

HOLIDAY HAIRSTYLE: FUN AND FESTIVE BOWS

Bows are not just for presents anymore! No matter your hair type, curly or straight, thick or thin, a bow could be the perfect addition to that fantastic holiday outfit! Keep reading to see my four favorite holiday bow hairstyles.

P1020279 (2)

Soft curls (aka Victoria Secret Angel locks) are a gorgeous look for any holiday party. For this style, I used my curling wand and brushed out the curls to create these cascading waves. Once I had the curls set, I teased the hair around my face and then pulled it all back with the bow.

P1020296 (2)

A sleek side do is always a great go-to holiday hairstyle. All you have to do is add a few soft curls to your hair, pull it to the side, and clip the bow right above your hairband. Super simple!

P1020326 (2)

Want a more formal look? Try a high bun with a bow! Start by teasing the top of your hair to create more volume. Then, tilt your head upside down and make a messy bun. If you notice a few loose strands, tame them with hairspray and then top it off by clipping a medium sized bow just below the bun.

P1020289 (2)

For a super simple and quick hairstyle, I love pulling back one side of my hair in a bow. For this, a smaller bow works best so it doesn’t over do the look.

Happy Holidays Beauties!

BE MERRY, BE BRIGHT, BE BEAUTIFUL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

The holiday season is finally here with Christmas right around the corner! Before we know it, we will be attending all kinds of fun holiday parties which are some of the best opportunities to get dressed up! Check out one of the outfits I’ll be wearing this holiday season!

12392058_10208275980363097_1302796880726574065_n

Cold weather can’t stand between me and my love of dresses. This black, quarter-sleeve dress is absolutely perfect for a holiday party. As soon as I spotted it, I knew I had to buy it! I adore the simple black color and A-frame style. There’s just something so chic about the pop of white paired with the black.

12342604_10208275980123091_1907194771890991465_n

To top it off, these red shoes were a must! For a winter-like look, I went with these suede, high heel pumps. Although, I must warn you, these can be dangerous to wear in the winter so make sure you spray them with a shoe protector before heading out.

12373416_10208275980883110_5809328727338476294_n

The best part about this outfit is that if it’s too cold, I can throw on a pair of black tights and booties for some warmth!

VS FASHION SHOW 2015

Need a little beauty and body inspiration? Then look no further than last night’s 2015 Victoria Secret Fashion Show. It was a night full of glowing skin, adorable heels, stunning outfits, and the one-and-only Selena Gomez. In case you missed it, check out my recap of the best beauty moments from the night!

Pictured-Martha-Hunt

This pinnacle of perfection looked incredible in a colorful corset paired with golden wings. I’m also obsessed with her strikingly flawless complexion. To get a glow like this, try Enza Essentials Sustaining Glow Crème, and you just might wake up feeling like an angel!

Pictured-Elsa-Hosk

This hippie inspired look is one for the books! Who knew ruffles, a bold pattern and heels could look so good? I’m also loving the beautiful, natural wave of her hair! And that look- so fierce!

Pictured-Alessandra-Ambrosio

I’m so obsessed with this white lace corset and bejeweled wings!  Alessandra certainly sparkled and her skin looked so fresh and vibrant. 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!

Pictured-Sharam-Diniz

How ahh-mazing is this outfit? This angel looks like a sexy snow queen in this stunning masterpiece. And, look at that smile…could she be any more adorable? Nope.

EIGHT THINGS “BEAUTY” I’M THANKFUL FOR

 

12310674_10208161853950008_3908361385017639966_n

Sister. I love having a sister and couldn’t be more grateful for the friendship we share. We’ve always been super close. Plus, having a second closet to choose from when deciding what to wear is the best feeling ever! Did I also mention I’m thankful for her sharing abilities?!

Curling Wand. Having naturally curly hair is both a blessing and a curse. You never quite know how your curls are going to look in the morning. I can’t tell you how many times my curling wand has saved the day!

12294729_10208159976063062_6493052815813432796_n

Coffee. When it comes to those unbearable 8 a.m classes, coffee is a god send. Not only does it make me appear more human, it acts as my most fashionable accessory on days when I’m rocking yoga pants and an over-sized sweatshirt.

Perfume. Silly I know, but smelling good just makes me happy. I love spraying on my own special scent in the morning or before heading out on that special date!

12299351_10208160030024411_6079307038113391206_n

Enza Products. I’m so grateful for ALL of my Enza Products and for the confidence they have given me to put my best face forward every day. Pimple free equals a happier me!

Shoes. I seriously can’t have enough shoes. Buying a new pair of shoes is like sampling Godiva Chocolates for the first time. Excitement takes over and nothing can stop you from indulging!

12279170_10208159692175965_933275969998473215_n

Chapstick. I hate to admit it, but I’m a more-than-occasional lip licker. End result… dry, irritated lips. Thank you chapstick for bringing back my smile!

Parents. I’ve learned so much from them over the years. One of the most important life lessons they have taught me, that I believe to be true, is that beauty starts from the inside. A kind, compassionate heart is a beautiful heart!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving Beauties!

BRAVE BLACK FRIDAY WITH CONFIDENCE

Black Friday, aka the ultimate shopping day of the year, is right around the corner. If you’re anything like me, you’ve already been gearing up for the excitement.  Check out my top Black Friday shopping tips so you can survive the most fabulous shopping day of the year!

12247106_10208158588228367_3819861547715482834_n

Wear Comfy Clothing.  Since you will most likely be doing quite a bit of walking, it’s probably smart to ditch the three-inch high heels and long, bulky trench coat. Instead, try a less high maintenance but still stylish look by wearing a cute shirt, sweater, leggings, and equestrian boots!

12301534_10208158587348345_40207798700207286_n

Simplify Your Beauty Routine. Remember, today is all about scoring deals…not guys ladies! For this most sacred of shopping days, all you really need are these three products:

Cleanser: Not even Black Friday can get in the way of my strict skin care routine. Before heading out to the malls, it’s important to use a cleanser to start the day. I’ll be using my Enza Essentials Sustaining Cleanser to keep my skin looking fresh for hours…and hours!

Eyebright Anti-Puffiness Gel: If you’re an early bird shopper like me, this will be your savior as your 4:00 a.m. alarm goes off. Before leaving the house, swipe on some anti-puffiness gel to hide those tired eyes and you’ll be ready to shop till you drop!

Foundation:  Indulge in a few too many glasses of wine Thanksgiving night and wake up with dry, irritated skin? Don’t panic! It’s okay to spend a little extra time applying your favorite foundation to hide the imperfections.  I’ll be using Jane Iredale’s Glow Time BB Cream for full coverage. That way I can spend less time re-applying and more time buying!

12295410_10208158587708354_2245729945916890394_n

Bring a Snack: In the midst of all the chaos and long lines, the last thing you want to be feeling is “hangry.”  Bringing a healthy snack will not only help lift your mood, it will also make it easier to pass on that 500+ calorie, sugar-packed croissant from Starbucks!

12274438_10208158587868358_8218985369152910919_n

Avoid Dressing Rooms Like the Plague. I know. There are always those items that pop up on Black Friday that you absolutely fall in love with. But, do you really want to try on 10 items when you have 15 more stores to hit? Tip: try on whatever you can before Black Friday so you can purchase the perfect fitting piece in a fraction of the time.

Best of luck this Friday ladies!

All eyes were focused on Ariana Grande during her focus performance, who ditched her signature half up hairstyle for loose, pretty curls. I’m absolutely loving Ariana’s new look!
