   PRINTS with a side of NEON

((The surprise of neon with the eclectic mix of pattern, texture, and color works brilliantly together!))

 Leopard print & NEON = love. This outfit it can also easily go from summer to fall, paired with black tights & boots! Listed below the photos are some combinations of this outfit & the sites to purchase them from at very reasonable prices.

Way to NAIL it ;)

FALL TREND ALERT: Out with the "neon shades" & the "accent nail" days . . . in with the metallic foil & mattes!! 
I am all about accessorizing your nails. Having my nails painted makes my outfits feel complete & I encompass a more polished feel {no pun intended;)}

Orly Foil FX kit has 3 essential shades to achieve the metallic foil look!

OPI "You don't know Jacques" My fav Fall matte color!

Another way to maximize the use of your existing polishes: a MATTE topcoat! SEPHORA by OPI - Matte Top Coat: gives nails a matte effect, transforming even the shiniest polishes into nails with a unique flat finish!!

Contouring & Highlighting

Contouring & highlighting is one of the most important details to a flawless finish! I highly recommend using a MATTE bronzer. Bronzers with glitter will not only age your skin but they also accentuate any flaws (wrinkles/acne) you may have. Use the highlighter sparingly, Dolls!! Glitter on your face is okay when applied on your eyes BUT that's about all.

Here is a great matte bronzer/highlighter duo! Yes. . . it's a little pricey, but it's a 2 for 1!! 

  • As for highlighting under the eyes, I would use a really good concealer! I apply my concealer around my entire eye (think raccoon). I also apply additional concealer under my eye after I finish my makeup. I prefer my concealer to be a shade lighter than my skin. 

{{I use MAC studio finish concealer.}}

I am so excited about my new discovery!! I was introduced to gel eyeliner a couple of years ago & fell in L.O.V.E. - - but was starting to have a hard time applying it with my regular eyeliner brush. . .UNTIL NOW! Eeekkk :) I purchased an angled eyeliner brush from Ulta & it has changed my whole eyelining WORLD. The smoothness is amazing & it takes away the awkwardness of trying to figure out which way to position your arm to get that perfect line.

 Here is the one I purchased from Ulta, online! $18 & worth every penny. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=1331233&productId=prod1331233&categoryId=cat80086

 My favorite gel eyeliner is by Smashbox $22 (pictured above). It will last you for well over a year & it's waterproof!! I wear it in the "Dark Brown". http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2158840&productId=prod290008&navAction=push&navCount=1&subdoc=16richgoldintenseindigowk412&categoryId=cat80042
It's all about the topknots, Dolls!! This hairstyle is such a great alternative to the daily ponytail us ladies rock (after abusing the snooze button.) Ummm, please opt for a clean sock ladies - it's okay for your hair to be a little dirty, but not the socks too;)

How to Create a Cute Top Knot (With a Sock!):
Next time you lose a sock in the dryer, don’t toss its lonely match in the trash—add it to your hair care kit. This gorgeous girl shows you how to fashion a full and fabulous bun in various positions on your head using just a sock and an elastic band. Now that’s what we call resourceful! {Wendy’s Lookbook}
