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.
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?
Have you been feeling a bit… blah and less than luminous lately? I feel ya! As the weather gets colder, I feel as though my skin keeps getting duller. As women, we naturally want to stand out- no one wants to look tired or dull. Sometimes a couple changes in your skin care routine are all it takes to turn your “blah” skin into a glowing masterpiece! Look no further than these three skin-care tips!
Exfoliate: It’s amazing how something so tiny can feel so huge. Enlarged pores are probably one of the most common beauty complaints! To remove any impurities, start exfoliating regularly. Exfoliating removes dull surface cells and helps to even and brighten skin tone. Try Enza Essentials Fine Facial Polish as an effective, gentle scrub! Perk: It can also be used as a masque!
Moisturize: Slather on a moisturizer while your face is still damp. This will plump and improve the appearance of fine lines as skin drinks up the moisture. To maintain hydration and revitalize stressed skin, try Enza Essentials Sustaining Glow Crème.
Drink water: Water acts as a skin superhero by clearing the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes. It also assists in transporting nutrients and oxygen to skin cells, and preventing dehydration, which can cause premature aging. The recommended amount is at least 8 glasses per day- drink up ladies!
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:
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.
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!
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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
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
I’ve officially been part of the blogging world for over a year now and I seriously cannot tell you enough how much I LOVE it! You all are so sweet and amazing – I just want to thank you all a million times over! Here’s a look at some fab bloggers who’ve been using Enza products and want to share their experience with everyone:
We are obsessed with the stunning Ciera of Yours Truly, Ciera! Here’s what she had to say about our products: “I haven been trying Enza Essentials for several weeks, and have noticed my skin is softer, even, and moisturized (which is a big deal when you live in a dry place like New Mexico!). I highly recommend their SPF 30 daily moisturizer, especially for these Summer months to protect your skin! Their products, unlike many other products, have a good smell too!”
Audrey of Lulu Linden is head-over-heels for the Fine Facial Polish and Sustaining Glow Creme:
“The face wash and toner are great staples, but the Facial Polish and Glow Creme that are a part of my night process are a-freaking-mazing. The polish felt like it was gently buffing away the grossness of the day and the creme just felt like silk kissing my skin, seriously.”

How adorable is Tilden of To Be Bright?! Her review post was SO amazing – you definitely need to check it out! Her new BFF’s? Body Gel and Body Polish. “So I started using these two while showering – The Shea Butter Body Gel & The Shea Butter Body Polish– and physically eliminated that dry skin feeling post shower within one use. Plus the scents of lemon, lavender and vanilla make it hard not to use them so the chances of me forgetting to do so is slim to none.”
Here’s what Justine of The Desert Mermaids had to say: “I love the way my skin is looking, and the fact that the whole line uses natural oils makes me feel like I’m not damaging my skin further with harsh, unnatural chemicals.” Read her full review here!
We love our bloggers! -xo Kayla
Oh my DRAMA! Did you watch the 2 night premiere of The Bachelorette this week?! I was literally cringing while watching! And (spoiler alert!), I’m a little upset that Britt wasn’t chosen to be the next Bachelorette, but I think Kaitlyn will be a super fun girl looking for love. Here are my 5 favorite guys so far:
What a sweetheart! Ben was such a nice guy that I just couldn’t help but fall in love with him. And have you noticed how bright his skin is?? What a winner – he must use Vitamin C Serum.
Shawn is one of my favorite bachelors this season by far. He is SO hot, such a gentleman, and those baby blues? AH-MAZ-ING. I’m completely smitten. He also received the first impression rose – things are already heating up between him and Kaitlyn.
What a rockin’ bod this personal trainer has – I’m sure Kaitlyn wouldn’t mind being his workout buddy! He was so sweet and personable. I’m sure he wears SPF to keep his skin protected during all those hours working out in the sun.
Smooth is definitely how Jonathan plays his game. Even though he was super into Britt, it seemed like he had such a crush on Kaitlyn too – I think they’d be a great match!
What a cutie he is! This Auto Finance Manager was a genuine and sweet guy. And I can’t get enough of his smile! His skin also looks super moisturized and fresh. If you want hydrated skin, try Enza Essentials Sustaining Glow Creme for smooth and bright skin.

I’m sure that most of you assume you’re applying your moisturizers and lotions correctly, but do you really know for sure? It may seem easy enough – just lather it on and go – but that’s certainly not the case. Properly hydrating your skin can be the difference between fresh, rejuvenated skin and dull, lackluster skin. Keep reading to find out how to improve your moisturizing technique!
The first step is to make sure you’re using the right moisturizer for YOU. Whether you have dry, oily, acne-prone, or normal skin, you need to be using a lotion that works for your specific skin type. If you find your skin is on the dry and flaky side, use a super hydrating lotion to lock moisture in. Oily skin? Try Enza Essentials’ Stress Extraction Creme. And for all of you who are a bit of a combination skin type, the Sustaining Glow Creme is perfect for you.
You also need to make sure you’re applying your moisturizer evenly. If you’re like most of us, you probably start on your nose and push outward – even I do this. But, it’s not the correct way. When you use this technique, your moisturizer settles around the outside of your face, causing the pores around your hairline to become clogged. If you notice you’re breaking out around this area, be sure to switch up your application technique.
One last tip – be sure to treat your face and neck with SPF separately. Apply it to your face, then apply it to your neck – don’t drag it from your face down to your neck. This can cause premature aging of your neck, making it look saggy and dry.
I may be a bit of a diva (ok, maybe slightly more than just a bit) but there is a totally legitimate reason for it! Do you know that your skin craves silk? Yes, you heard that correctly! And now you have a perfectly good excuse to run to the mall this evening and buy those expensive silk sheets you’ve been eyeing up for months. Seriously.
Your body loves this fabric so much because silk is one of the closest things to actual skin. It even has the same pH level! Silk contains a certain fiber that helps boost cell turnover, which means that the fabric helps protect skin from aging.
Another reason silk is fabulous? It doesn’t soak up the moisture in your skin. If you sleep on silk pillowcases, your skin will be more hydrated with better skin elasticity. Also, this fabric won’t absorb the serums and cremes you lather on before bedtime, resulting in the products staying on longer and working better.
And because silk sheets and pillowcases are luxuriously soft and smooth, you won’t wake up with crease marks across your cheek, leading to fine lines and wrinkles later on. So, it’s basically necessary to be high maintenance and splurge on silk bedding. -xo Kayla
We all know that soda isn’t good for us. It’s loaded with sugar, carbonation, caffeine, and many other things we don’t need in our bodies. But, did you know how bad soda is for your skin? I must warn you – reading this may make you never want to take another sip of the fizzy stuff again.
Drinking soda regularly definitely does serious damage to your skin. One of the main reasons that the bubbly softdrink is so bad for your complexion is because of the insane amount of sugar it contains. When you consume too much sugar, your skin can become wrinkly, uneven in it’s texture, and dull. Seriously, who wants that? But if you’ve drank one-too-many sodas today, try using Enza’s Sustaining Glow Creme for brighter skin.
Research has actually found that drinking 20 ounces of soda daily made you look 4.6 years older – now THAT is scary! Ew! So, what should you be drinking? WATER. WATER. And more WATER. 8-10 glasses a day, ladies! Your body will be so much happier and your skin will thank you every day. If plain water isn’t as tasty as you’d like, throw a lemon slice in your cup to spice it up!
Don’t let soda pop ruin your beautiful skin – reach for that glass of water instead! -xo Kayla
