Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder – Miami Collection for Fall 2017

Throwing a little love to all the folks in South Florida after Hurricane Irma!  Victoria Beckham has collaborated again with Estee Lauder, releasing her newest collections for Fall 2017, each inspired by a different city:  LA, London, NYC, Paris, and Miami. 

Despite being the quintessential beach town, Miami never quite turns down the glam-factor, and pretty much the only place you will find ladies without much makeup is at the beach, and even there you are bound to find women who gleam and glow more from their cosmetics than from the humidity.  Miami women are peacocks and wearing notice-me outfits requires way more than a bare face, day or night.

Victoria channeled the sunset hues, the sand and beach, and the azur shimmer of the ocean for this collection.  Regardless of how you choose to wear the collection, the shades are versatile and can be worn with a light touch on glowing skin, or built up for more impact.  A pale pink lip is a sexy step up from a predictable nude lip or shiny lip gloss and gives the look a high end, fashionable appeal. 

Miami is always in style, just make sure to amp up your beauty game next time your in town.  Season is just about to begin!

Model's Street Style - NY Fashion Week Castings

NY Fashion Week is fast approaching and the agencies have all their best models and hopeful new faces all ready to go.  Show packages are delivered and the top casting directors’ schedules are full.  The models are out in force, cramming in a dozen castings a day, all over the city and the boroughs, books in hand, trying to be one of the lucky models selected to walk in the premier runway shows in NYC. 

Some of my friends have lived this experience time and again, season after season, fashion capitol after fashion capitol.  The pace and the anticipation never changes, and despite the fact that the entire process belongs to the fashion industry, all eyes everywhere are on the models and their personal style. The casting “uniform” has barely changed in decades: skinny jeans, concert tees, tank tops, booties, black back packs (with high heels inside), leather jacket or hero jacket, sneakers, mini skirts, athletic wear, sunglasses, and a natural, makeup-free fresh face. 

Street style photographers are warming up on capturing these models as they race from casting to casting, showroom to showroom, all in preparation for fashion week when everyone’s style game is kicked up a notch – a major notch.  Show castings are a chance for the model to show off her personality and edge, and to prove to the casting directors and designers that they have the right look at the right time, and would rock it on their runway.  It’s a classic NYC cool look that just works, and no one does it better that these unicorns.  Good luck ladies!  We’ll be watching!

Hair Extensions - Achieve Fall's Hottest Long Hair Styles in Seconds

Long hair – really long hair – is having a moment, but then hasn’t it always?  Hair down to there is sexy, rebellious, and non-conforming.  It can be mysterious, exotic, powerful, retro, or youthful.   Whatever the motivation, it is a strong statement and while it might look like a low maintenance look, for many it is anything but. 

For those blessed with straight hair that doesn't curl or frizz and simply grows straight, it might be the easiest style to maintain, being perfect for all sorts of braids, ponytails, and “undone” hair, but these are often the same women whose hair is fine and might not be strong enough to grow very long.  Curly-haired beauties who love full waves and sleek, dramatic styles have to spend a bit more time to achieve long-haired looks, but having the option to go curly or straight is a bonus and for many women, totally worth the effort. 

Actually growing your hair this long is a major investment in time and maintenance, and requires a long-term commitment, so for those of us who are more spontaneous and love variety in our beauty routine and whose every outfit requires different makeup and hair to create the look we want, growing our hair long simply is a non-starter. 

Hair extensions to the rescue! Choosing the right extensions is critical to avoid damaging your own hair, and for creating quick and easy looks that don’t tie you to a salon, or take up valuable time in the morning.  I use Hidden Crown hair Extensions that are on an invisible filament and can be put on in less than a minute - and removed in one second – which comes in both 18” lengths and 22” lengths which are perfect for super long styles, is made of 100% real remy human hair.  I can curl it or style it exactly how I want to achieve the long, dramatic look. I can transform my look in minutes, and do it again the next day with a completely different style. 

Long hair is here to stay and a key fashion trend this coming season.  Be inspired and create your own statement looks this season being as fashion-fickle as you want, or for full-on fashion drama, without the trouble of growing out your hair.

Metallic Beauty Trend for Fall - Shine On!

Fall runways were lit up with metallic fabrics, embellishments, and accessories.  Shimmering lamé, shiny silks and satins, leathers, jewelry, studs, and rhinestones were a common theme.  You might think the late seventies and early eighties were back with a vengeance.  Disco-era glamour is having a moment, especially for evening, and can be incorporated into your wardrobe and beauty looks for 2017 without harkening back to Studio 54. Think of adding a bit of shimmering depth to your make-up for a fall update that plays with shading to create just the right intensity and glimmer. 

Golden Eye:  Keep the blending to a minimum and create a well-defined eye shadow shape in a brassy gold shadow.  Highlight the brow bones and temples to draw the light to your eyes.  Use a liquid eye liner and create full black lashes for eye drama.  Choose a rich red satin-finish lip color and a rosy peach blush. 

Purple Rain:  Use deep metallic plum tones blended together along the crease of the eyelid and highlight the inner corner of the eyes with a bright silver shadow and finish with heavy black lashes.  Use a rose-pink lip color with a satin finish and a plum-toned blush.

Eye of the Tiger:  Choose metallic browns and greys to create a swooped cat eye shape, using a highlighter on the brow bone up to the eyebrow.  Outline the entire eye in liquid liner and use a metallic gold shadow on the inner corners of the eyes to create a cat-eye-like effect. Wear a metallic bronze lip color and a warm berry blush. 

Bronze Goddess:  For a more ethereal metallic eye, choose a lighter golden shade and blend it all over the lid up to the brow bone.  Skip the eyeliner and use a mascara that separates and defines rather than volumizes the lashes.  Choose a deep berry metallic finish lip color, and a peach-copper blush.   

                                                  Shine on!  XOXO  Shelley
