So I recently stopped using my old acne clearing products because most products on the market developed to treat acne are filled with harmful chemicals. I’m currently trying a few natural remedies, and during the… More
In the words of Soulja Boy, “Kiss Me Thru The Phone.” Beauty brand Shiseido recently launched its new Rouge Rouge Kiss Me digital app, which asks you to make out with your phone. Yes, you heard right, just give your phone a smooch and the app is triggered. Here’s how it works: one person visits the site and puts in who they want to kiss and the recipient receives a message. When both people arrive on the site, they are able to select a shade of Rouge Rouge they want their lips to appear in for the big moment. Once they kiss their screens, the two lipstick marks are captured together on-screen and a GIF can be created to share across social media, email or text messages. The app is a promotion in conjunction with the global launch of its 16-color Rouge Rouge lipstick. Interested visit rougerougekissme-shiseido.com to start kissing away.
Shazam for beauty. Make-up brand Rimmel launched its “Get The Look” app, providing users the ability to replicate the looks of just about anyone, from their favorite celebrity to the person they sat next to in the park, by simply using their cell phone. Forbes calls it a “Shazam for beauty.” It uses fancy tracking to detect the makeup on the faces of just about anyone and then color-matches it with makeup Rimmel offers. Once the look is captured the app created an augmented mirror that allows the individual to see what the makeup would look like on themselves before heading over to a website where they can purchase it themselves. The app is currently available in the U.K. as of July 1st and will be released in the U.S. this September.

I just love the nail design seen at Moschino’s LAFW 2016 presentation done by Miss Pop for OPI. The vibrant colors and polka dots are perfect for spring. Read on to learn how you can re-create the look.
- Apply one coat of Infinite Shine Primer.
- Paint 5 of your nails at random with two coats of bright magenta Infinite Shine Don’t Provoke The Plum. Then paint the other five with two coats of tangerine orange Infinite Shine No Stopping Me Now.
- Pour a little Infinite Shine To The Finish Lime onto a plastic palette or piece of tin foil. Dip a large dotter or back end of an eyeshadow brush into the gel lacquer. Then, gently dab it down on a nail to create the perfect dot.
- Repeat step 3 on all 10 fingers. Make the dots on a random place on each nail.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 with Infinite Shine Wild Blue Yonder.
- On the orange nails, repeat steps 3 and 4 with Infinite Shine Don’t Provoke the Plum.
- On the magenta nails, repeat steps 3 and 4 with Infinite Shine No Stopping Me Now.
- Pour out a little Infinite Shine Silver On Ice onto your palette. Using a smaller dotter or ball end of a bobby pin, create small silver centers in each colorful dot
What does planning a wedding have in common with cutting onions? No, it’s not that they both make you cry! Like Shrek, they both have layers. Unending layers, it seems, when it comes to wedding planning. And a lot of these layers intersect with one overarching theme: the colors.
There are a couple of items you have to decide before you choose your wedding colors: your venue, your date, and since it’s usually required for the venue, a rough estimate of your guest count.
But that’s really it. Choosing your colors is necessary to make most of your wedding decisions. You won’t be able to buy much or send information out until you’ve at least decided on a general color and theme direction.
One of the most obvious ways your colors will be used is in the wedding party outfits. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen will be living ambassadors of the tone and feeling you want at your wedding. But it can be difficult to accessorize everyone appropriately, making sure they all look good individually, that they all look good together, and that they all look good in your venue. A big part of this comes from knowing which colors to use where. If your wedding palette is only 3 colors, you may want to add a couple of neutral or accent colors to avoid having too much of each of the main colors. It’s important to think about what colors will complement and accentuate your main wedding colors.
Many brides choose jewelry for their bridesmaids as a thank-you gift. It can be daunting to choose jewelry for other people, so here are a couple of tips.
Think about what they will like and look good in.
If you’re providing the Bridesmaids’ jewelry as a gift, make sure it’s a gift they’ll like. Otherwise, you should just trust your bridesmaids to get their own, or go shopping with them. When it comes to earrings, you can think about face shape, or simply pay attention to what type of jewelry your bridesmaids normally wear. Look at photos of them at special events and find something that suits their style. After all, if they feel like themselves, they’ll make your wedding look great.
Don’t go overboard on matching.
We touched on this earlier, but it really can’t be overstated. You went to all the trouble of choosing wedding colors; of course you want to use them. But when it comes to jewelry, you don’t have to have an exact match. In fact, your colors may stand out more if you choose complementary colors rather than matching ones. For example, Pantone’s color of the year is rose quartz and serenity. Instead of hunting down the exact shades of pink or blue you need, think about other colors that look good with that combo, such as gray and gold, as shown in the photo above.
Keep Cost in Mind
One of the top unexpected wedding costs that can throw off your budget is bridal gifts. You want to treat your bridesmaids, but you don’t want to break the budget. On the other hand, if you go too cheap, you may end up buying jewelry that looks tacky and that they’ll never wear again. Look around for deals that don’t sacrifice value. See if there are local artisans who can craft custom pieces at an affordable rate.
When it comes to choosing jewelry, there’s a lot to consider. The best thing you can do is talk to your wedding party about how you want everyone to look and brainstorm ideas about accessories. Whether everyone matches, or each adds their own style to their look, you do have the authority to say no to costume jewelry or flamboyant colors that don’t match your palette. After all, it’s your wedding! Just have fun looking at all the pretty necklaces, earrings, and other accessories for the ladies who will be up there with you on your big day!

So, I am good at many things, but putting on nail polish is at the very bottom of the list. But, alas, a product has come on the market for people like me who lack a steady hand when applying nail color – spray on nail polish. The idea is you become a graffiti artist for a few seconds and spray your nails with the color, which will temporarily make your hands look like a complete mess. But, after the polish dries, you just rinse your hands with soapy water and, voila, the perfect mani. Check out the video below to see a spray on polish by China Glaze called Coloured Nail Spray.
Last week I attended the launch of Kylie Jenner’s new limited edition nail color collection in collaboration with SinfulColors. The reality TV star looked amazing in a long, sequined gold dress as she announced the new polishes are an artistic way to share her artistic choices with her fans.

“Kylie is internationally recognized as a leading influencer and trendsetter in beauty and fashion, and recognized for making a statement in nail. We are thrilled to collaborate with Kylie, and are excited to introduce these new collections, unlike anything else on the market,” said Blake Decker, Head of Marketing, SinfulColors.
The polishes will be available from March 1 – August 31st 2016 at select retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Walgreens, Target. Suggested retail price of polishes and topcoat: $2.99.
Last week, Mister Triple X by Art Hearts Fashion Founder Erik Rosete presented his collection on the final night of Art Hearts Fashion week NYC. With over 30 designers at NYFW and shows in Los Angeles and Miami, Art Hearts Fashion is now one of the largest bi-coastal fashion platforms in the United States and the second largest platform at New York Fashion Week, second only to IMG The Shows.
