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!

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!

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.

What was your favorite look from the Victoria Secret Fashion Show?

PRESSED FOR TIME? FOLLOW THESE EASY TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN

Are you so busy running from one activity to another that you sometimes neglect taking care of your skin? I totally get it! Squeezing in facials and following a strict cleansing routine can take a serious amount of time! If you fall into the “I’m too busy to exfoliate” category – and skincare isn’t making it to the top of your to-do list — here are some easy tips to keep your skin in tip-top condition.

Clean up your diet. If you want to spend less time worrying about your skin, the easiest way to keep your skin healthy is by eating right. That means filling up your plate with lots of anti-inflammatory foods that contain antioxidants and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. One of the best foods to eat? Raspberries! To discover more benefits of raspberries, check out my post Raspberries for Weight Loss: Who Knew?!

Simplify your AM routine. Start by doing a cleanse every morning to remove any impurities accumulated on your face overnight. Follow your cleanse with a Vitamin C Serum which helps improve skin tone and texture. End with a SPF moisturizer which, in case you didn’t know, is the most important step in your anti-aging skin care regimen! This is a must!

Make your PM routine a little easier. Simply cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize. Everyone has time for a 3-minute ritual!

Watch your salt and protein intake. Salt decreases the water intake of your internal organs, and when your organs are dehydrated, they suck the water out of your skin! This leaves you with dry, damaged skin that will take even more time to attend to! Want extra salt on that delicious, soft pretzel? No thank you!

Stash cleansing wipes in your nightstand. For those nights when you want to jump right in bed the moment you walk through the door, keep a pack of cleansing wipes by your bed to remove makeup and excess dirt. You never, ever want to go to bed with a dirty face!

What are some of your time saving skin secrets?

COLD WEATHER AND DRY SKIN BLUES? BRING IT ON!

As a Wisconsin girl, I am always in need of a really good moisturizer as the colder months draw near. My go-to fix? Enza Essential’s Shea Body Butter! It is extremely hydrating and full of powerful antioxidants that turn my dry, alligator looking legs into smooth works of art. Speaking of amazing legs, did you see my post about Carrie Underwood at the CMA’s last week? Unlike other oils and moisturizers, it soaks into my skin quickly, leaving it silky smooth and not greasy!

Ever since I started using it, I have become obsessed! Even my driest skin areas like elbows and knees are ridiculously soft. I even started using it on my lips for extra hydration! Sound weird? Seriously give it a try! With just one use of this product, you can say goodbye to redness, rough skin, and peeling! Needless to say, this Shea Body Butter will be my savior as the cold starts to cause my skin to flake.

CARRIE CRUSHES IT AT THE 2015 CMA AWARDS

It’s safe to say that all eyes were on Carrie Underwood at this year’s CMA awards. The country singer and beauty icon rocked the stage with over ten outfit changes!  With her incredible sense of style and killer looks, Carrie never disappoints! I honestly loved all of Carries’ outfits throughout the night, but I was able to narrow it down to my top five favorite looks!

On the red carpet, Carrie definitely had the “wow” effect sporting a stunning coral gown with a low neckline and peplum waist. Not to mention, her hair looked incredible with a deep side part and loose curls- absolute perfection.

This colorful dress was by far one of my favorites because of it’s elegant yet fun appeal. I just love the bright colors combined with the soft hues! To match her dress, Carrie’s rosy lips added the perfect pop of color. Speaking of her lips, they look super soft and hydrated! To get lips like Carrie’s, I’ve been using my Lip Treatment every day and my lips have never been softer!

So, Carrie has great style, an amazing voice, AND knows how to play the guitar? This multi-talented beauty looked super trendy rocking this studded black dress. Can you say gorgeous??

How adorable does Carrie look in this dress?! I just love the modern twist of this fun and flirty bandage dress! And look at her legs! How does she do it? She must use a super hydrating lotion like Enza Essential’s Shea Butter Body Lotion.

Along with her coral dress, Carrie wore these simplistic, long earrings that added the perfect amount of bling to help create a sophisticated, modern look. The only thing that could take my attention away from her wardrobe is her glowing skin. Just look at her flawless complexion! The secret to a glowing complexion like Carrie’s? Vitamin C!

Stay Enza Beautiful!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Friday! I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. Today I want to catch you all up on what our AMAZING bloggers have been saying about Enza on Instagram lately!

Emily from @musingsofglitter said “I couldn’t wait to try out the Enza Essentials skin care line! The best part about this company is that they offer customizable skin care suites that are tailored to your specific needs! I’ve been using it for a few days now and I already see a huge difference in my skin!”

How gorgeous does Mary of @mksportsanista look while applying her Eyebright Intensive Eye Creme?? “I’ve been using their products for the last month and I couldn’t be more happy with the results.”

We absolutely LOVE @aubreykinch and her support! “I’ve been dealing with acne for such a long time and back in February of 2014 I changed my whole skin regimen to @enzaprgirl and haven’t looked back! This is not something I’m paid to post but simply a product I love and fully stand behind after using it for so long! The saturation line has been perfect for my combo skin – the glycolic serum + hydrating creme being my favorite! If you fall into that category, I recommend making the investment on product that makes a difference and if you’re a little unsure, they can even build you a custom suite of product to work for your unique skin! I’m just a happy customer and wanted to share! ☺️”

@raysa.garcia makes sure she wears her SPF every single day and she also LOVES our enza.com website – you better go check it out for yourself! “Talking about these amazing products @enzaprgirl #enzabeautiful. Please check out their incredible website for more details.”

WANT FULLER LIPS? USE THIS PRODUCT YOU ALREADY HAVE AT HOME

Let’s face it – everyone wants fuller lips. There’s just something about a plump, luscious pout that’s irresistible. And, many of us aren’t quite ready to turn to injections yet. If you want in on this super easy way to get gorgeous lips, keep reading!

IMG_9462

The secret? Use your eye cream. You may think I’m crazy, but it totally makes sense – eye creams are designed to plump and hydrate the super delicate area around the eyes. And guess what? The area around the lips is VERY similar to that around the eyes. See where I’m going with this??

IMG_9467

And since most eye creams are fragrance free and have ingredients that are used for the most sensitive of skin, it’s obviously a no-brainer. Enza Essentials Eyebright Intensive Eye Creme is packed with peptides that smooth and hydrate skin, making your lips look incredible.

To get the softest lips possible, follow up with the Lip Treatment! -xo Kayla

 

5 STUNNING BEAUTY TRENDS FROM NYFW SPRING 2016

If you missed what the buzz is all about in the fashion world right now, New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 is happening as we speak! The runways are filled with daring outfits, unique makeup, and gorgeous models. Here are 5 beauty trends that have caught my attention so far:

Rodarte.

gallery-1442409795-hbz-nyfw-ss16-beauty-rodarte

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.

gallery-1442165338-hbz-nyfw-ss16-beauty-monique-lhullier-eyes

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.

gallery-1442067406-hbz-nails-v

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. 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.

hbz-beauty-ss2016-jason-wu-bks-a-rs16-2511

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

ARE YOU WASHING YOUR FACE CORRECTLY?

It may seem like a pretty straightforward concept – squirt some cleanser into your hands, scrub your face, rinse with water, and dry off. Most of us do this everyday (hopefully twice a day!) and don’t put too much thought or effort into it. But, there actually are a few face-washing mistakes that many of us do every time we begin our skin care routine. Keep reading to find out if you’re guilty of any!

IMG_5514

Mistake #1: Your hands are dirty.

It may seem silly, but before you wash your face, you NEED to wash your hands. In fact, you shouldn’t even think about touching your face without freshly-cleansed hands ever. It’s so important to expose your face to as little bacteria as possible, and we all know how nasty our hands can be.

e89f8597-4455-498b-872f-d68fcee4b68d

Mistake #2: The water is too hot. 

Since cooler weather is quickly approaching, it’s very tempting to use hot water when washing your face. Truth is, hot water washes away skin’s protective oils, leaving it dry, tight, and itchy. Instead, use lukewarm water – the lower temperature is much less harsh on your delicate skin.

IMG_7670

Mistake #3: You’re only washing once.

When you only wash your face once, you’re really only cleansing the dirt, makeup, and bacteria that’s on the surface of your skin. To get an even deeper clean, wash a second time to get the oil and bacteria that’s hiding down in your pores. I cleanse my skin twice every night with my Extraction Cleanser – it leaves my skin feeling amazing.

IMG_7058

Mistake #4: You’re not following up.

So you’ve taken my advice above and correctly washed your face – great job! But, is that all you’re doing? Cleansing just provides a blank canvas for the rest of your skincare regimen. Even if you’re extremely low-maintenance, be sure to follow up with a toner (to balance skin tone and minimize pores) and a moisturizer for your best skin possible.

Are you committing any of these cleansing crimes? -xo Kayla

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.
