KICK BACK IN FALL’S HOTTEST TREND…THE VERSATILE BUT CHIC BOOT

Whatever your fashion style…classic, edgy or striking…boots are the perfect item to polish off that stylish outfit. Why are boots an absolute must-have this season? They can turn even the most plain outfit into a stunning success! On chillier days, they make dresses and skirts wearable. And, with so many options to choose from, they’re the perfect item to show off your own personal style.  

Be on your best boot game this season! Find your own unique look and you’ll cause heads to turn — in a good way!

The Classic: Slim, high-heeled boots. Find a pair that is fitted around your leg, but not so tight that your skin bulges from the top. Tip: there shouldn’t be more than a half inch of space between your leg and your boot. These look beautiful when paired with a sweater dress and tights.

The Casual: Flat, equestrian boots. Running errands? These cute boots are not only comfortable, they’re super easy to slip on with your favorite pair of jeans. Top it off with a cozy sweater, throw on a statement necklace and you’re set!

The Chic: Ankle bootie. For an ultramodern look, dress up your favorite pair of jeans with these adorable booties. But, make sure you’re wearing them the right way! Instead of tucking your jeans into the booties, roll them up a couple times for a much more flattering look! 

boots with skirt

The Show Stopper: Thigh-high boots. Cause a sensation when you walk in a room with these high-fashion boots. Pair it with a mini-skirt and tights for an even more dramatic effect. A perfect cold weather date outfit!

What’s your go-to boot style?

WHY YOU SHOULD FREEZE YOUR TIGHTS

It’s getting to be that time of year again – tights season. If you’re like me, tights are your go-to when the temperature dips down near the freezing mark. They can transform a summer dress into a fall outfit in the blink of an eye. But as we know all too well, just as you arrive to your favorite restaurant on date night, you glance down to find a run the length of the Great Wall of China down the back of your calf. If you don’t want this disaster to happen again, you better make room in the freezer.

Yes, that’s right – freezing your tights can protect them from getting runs. It sounds crazy, but hear me out: The next time you buy a new pair (and before you wear them), run them under water until they’re slightly damp (don’t completely soak them). Then place them in a plastic bag and freeze overnight. Take them out and give them a day to defrost and thaw out.

The best part? You only need to do this once – after that, you’re good to go. The cold temps firm and strengthen the individual fibers of your tights, making them less susceptible to runs later on.

THE REAL WINNERS OF 2015 EMMYS: BEST IN BEAUTY

As you all know, the 2015 Emmy’s aired on Sunday night and the red carpet looked hotter than ever! From bold hues to gorgeously embellished frocks (Hello, Kerry Washington!), the beauty was ultra glamorous and chic. Although it was difficult, I’ve narrowed down my 4 favorite looks from the night:

Taylor Schilling

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.

I am seriously loving this goddess-inspired look! These gold vintage accessories and tousled locks will be so hot for spring – I’m super excited! I also can’t stop staring at how bright her skin is. The highlight just above her cheekbone is everything! But, we all know that bright skin starts with skincare – use Enza Essentials Vitamin C Creme if you want glowing skin!

Monique Lhuillier.

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.

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. And how smooth and hydrated is her skin?? Great skin is ALWAYS in! Be sure to fill out a skin questionnaire and our experts will get you on track to clear skin.

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!

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. If you want picture-perfect skin like Beyonce’s, fill out a customized skin care questionnaire here and be just like Bey!

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

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.

MY CURRENT FALL FAVORITES

Happy Friday, Babes! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are partaking in some final summer activities this weekend. Ready or not, autumn is almost here! Although I’m going to miss summer, here’s some fall beauty favorites that I’m going to be obsessing over the next few months:

hbz-fw2015-trends-beauty-pinky-peach-kors-bks-a-rf15-2182

Blushes in pink and red tones are going to be HUGE this fall season and I’m not complaining about it one bit! Warm hues are perfect for autumn styles, so I think I’ll be rocking this makeup look quite often – just like Karlie.

Nothing says cooler weather like a pair of fabulous over-the-knee boots, am I right? I think I’m going to have to purchase a pair in every single color…

IMG_7033

Fall means out with the old and in with the new – which is why you need to get rid of all the dead skin cells from summer! Exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week is extremely beneficial for bright and glowing skin. My Fine Facial Polish will be at my side throughout the fall season. (And the rest of the year, too!)

hbz-fw2015-trends-beauty-smoky-von-furstenberg-bks-a-rf15-8750

I don’t know about you, but I’m all about a chic, smoky eye for the autumn season. This trend will be spotted on runways and Red Carpets over the next few months and I’m so excited. Jane Iredale’s Smoke Gets in Your Eyes eye shadow kit is perfect for creating a sultry look.

How adorable is Elizabeth Keene of A Keene Sense of Style with this rust-colored scarf?? Scarves are the ideal fall accessory because 1) they’re adorable and 2) they keep me nice and warm. I can’t wait to go on a “scarfing spree!” 🙂

CELEBRITY SKIN ENVY: ASHLEY GREENE

ashley-greene-long-bob-main

Ashley Greene – oh how I envy you. She’s absolutely gorgeous, is a brilliant actress, a wonderful role model for women, and has a killer complexion. Seriously, she’s perfect.

Ashley-Greene-Beautiful-Skin-Secret

I can’t get over how bright her skin tone is – I’m obsessed! She actually glows. I read that she drinks LOTS of water to keep her skin smooth and clear. Obviously, it’s working like a charm. She also exfoliates regularly.

ashley-green-makeup-2011-avon-voices-gala

Seriously, does the Twilight star even have pores?! I love how dewy her complexion is! And those brows are everything. The only makeup Ashley needs is a some mascara, blush, and a pop of color on her lips – her skin does everything else.

050311_greene_makeup_113558992110503155742

I read that Ashley uses vitamin C every single morning and night in her skin care routine – no wonder why her skin is beyond radiant! If you want glowing skin like hers, try using Enza Essentials Vitamin C Serum. This antioxidant-filled serum will give you a brighter, more healthy complexion!

MAKE YOUR BRAID BIGGER

Although braids never really go out of style, big and voluminous ones are certainly in the trending spotlight. Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with lusciously thick locks to create this look (I’m looking at you, Blake Lively!) If your hair is a bit on the finer side, here are some tips and tricks to get you your fullest braid yet!

Tease Hair

Add some texture. First of all, second day hair is the absolute BEST for creating a beautiful braid – freshly washed hair is less than idea for this look. When it hasn’t been washed recently, it has more grip and texture. If you need, throw in a few loose curls to create some added texture. And don’t worry about making it look pretty – it doesn’t have to be neat.

Dry Shampoo

Make it dirty. When trying to create a big braid, dirty hair is your BFF. Grab your dry shampoo or texturizing spray/powder and apply it all over. Like I said earlier, this will help with grip and overall volume. I always tease my hair at the crown, too, for an extra big hair look.

Braid

Mess it up. Once you’ve finished braiding your hair and secured the end with an elastic, pull the braid apart. Starting at the bottom of the braid, gently grab the loops on the left and right side and pull outward, doing so all the way to the top. This will give you that messy, undone look rather than a sleek, tight look.
