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.

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.

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!

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!

BEST IN BEAUTY: MET GALA 2015

You never quite know what styles and trends are going to show up at the Met Gala, and last night’s Red Carpet was no exception! The evening was filled with unique dresses, cat eyes, and bold lips. Here’s a look at my favorite beauty looks at the event:

Rihanna.

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala

Holy gorgeous RiRi! The singer stole the show in this yellow dress complete with a crazy-long train. Her headpiece and choker necklace added the perfect amount of edginess to her entire look, while her pink cheeks, lips and eyes kept her looking girly. I’m in complete awe just looking at her skin – it’s flawless! To get skin that smooth and bright, she must use a serum containing vitamin C.

Gigi Hadid.

Gigi looked so elegant in this red gown paired with loose waves. Her defined brows and thick black liner is such a clean, classic look, and her light pink lips don’t draw any attention away. I cannot stop staring at her even skin tone – I read that Gigi exfoliates regularly to keep her skin looking fresh and rejuvenated. To exfoliate your skin, try using Enza Essentials Fine Facial Polish 2-3 times per week after cleansing.

Beyonce.

rs_634x803-150504200129-634.beyonce-beauty-met-gala-2015

All hail Queen Bey! This sheer embellished gown is serious glamour, the I Dream of Jeannie ponytail is ridiculously fun and flirty, and her makeup and skin are both on-point. But, what do you honestly expect from her? Nothing less than perfection, of course.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

rs_634x898-150504200338-634.rose-hw-beauty-met-gala-2015

Although the slicked-back ‘do is not my personal favorite, can we just talk about her eyes and lips for a second?? Wow! Her lavender lids look so pretty paired with her blue eyes and jet black lashes. And I’m DYING over this deep red lip color she’s wearing – it’s gorgeous! Her skin looks so hydrated and refreshed. She must drink LOTS of water every day!

Chrissy Teigen.

rs_634x880-150504201254-634.chrissy-teigen-beauty-met-gala-2015

Oh Chrissy, you never fail to disappoint me on the Red Carpet. These big romantic waves paired with a flower in her hair gives me all sorts of beauty envy. She’s stunning! And how perfect is her skin? No wonder why she was my celebrity skin envy a few months back!

SUPER BOWL XLIX: KATY PERRY’S BEAUTY LOOKS

Millions of viewers watched Super Bowl XLIX last night – either for the actual football game, the bright and bedazzled halftime performance, or the ridiculously expensive commercials.  My main priority was obviously to see what Katy Perry’s outfit, hair and makeup looked like. In case you missed it, here’s a rundown of 3 looks she sported during halftime:

katy-perry-600x800

Katy literally looked like a ball of fire in this two-piece glittery flame outfit. To be completely honest, this was my least favorite outfit of the night, but her makeup looked super fierce which helped pull the look together.

Talk about a colorful wardrobe change! Katy quickly changed into this beach-inspired outfit while singing “Teenage Dream” and “California Gurls.”  Although I did enjoy this halter top and high-waisted skirt combo MUCH more than the flame outfit, I can’t help but obsess over how beautiful her skin looks! It looks so fresh and bright, even after countless hours of rehearsal and little sleep. She must use a serum with vitamin C to get glowing skin like that.

To end her halftime show, she was lifted high into the air on a platform while singing “Firework” and it was amazing. Katy wowed the crowd with her star-covered gown and chic glitter cat-eye paired with bold red lips. It definitely was a sight to see and a performance to watch. Well done Katy, well done!

Did you enjoy her halftime performance? -xo Kayla
