Why You May Want to Buy a Hoodie This Weekend

30 Mar

Hoodies in all Shapes and Sizes

I may be treading into controversial territory due to a tragic event in Florida that took place recently, but I’ve always loved hoodies.

There are many reasons why hoodies are so popular.

They’re easy to wear (who doesn’t love a relaxed fit), capture the latest trends, and can effortlessly work with any wardrobe.

Of course, if you want to wear a hoodie to express your views, that’s fine too.

Fans of Mad Men, who caught the Season 5 premiere, may have noticed that the lady-like fashion of the earlier seasons has now moved on to the brash Mod look of the Swinging Sixties.

You can create a Mod look using this season’s pastels to highlight your eyes, lips, or nails.

Pump Up Your Smoky Eye Look

16 Mar

Major Volume and Length

By now, we’re all familiar with the dramatic look that smoky eyes create.

If you want to take it one step further, there is a way.

Smoky Lash from Make Up For Ever is an ultra‑pigmented mascara designed to enhance the volume, length, and curl of your lashes.

The wide, dense brush of this mascara penetrates into the roots of your lashes to ensure that each lash is completely coated with mascara. The result is dark and defined lashes that don’t look fake.

Do a Double Take With This Lip Stain

12 Mar

Long-Wearing Color Plus a Glossy Topcoat

If you’re tired of your favorite lip color doing a disappearing act, it’s time to check out the staying power of lip stains.

I admit that I’ve been a reluctant believer. However, a lip stain that combines that best of both worlds (color that you can count on plus gloss to finish the look) has me changing my mind.

The Skinn Tint & Shine lip stain and gloss duo features a matte, long-lasting stain on one side. On the other side of the tube, you get a complementary shade of lip gloss that locks in the stain with just the right amount of shine.

Ballet Inspired Nail Lacquer for Spring

8 Mar

New Additions to the SoftShades Collection

If Shrek can inspire a nail polish collection, shades reminiscent of the New York City Ballet is even less of a reach.

Seriously, the colors of the New York City Ballet are so appealing that OPI is launching a SoftShades colors collection next month including five sheer, neutral shades and one silver sparkle shade.

According to Suzi Weiss‑Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director, the NYCB is rich with artistic history. “The dancers, choreography and costumes provided a wealth of inspiration for a range of soft, feminine hues. The beige, pink, and white lacquers bring to mind classic ballet slippers, tutus and leotards, while the sheer lilac and gray add muted color to ballet’s traditional pink.”
