Gold Rush

As seen on the runways of Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marchesa.  Gold is one of the colors that flatters any skin tone.  It will brighten and make the color of your eyes pop.  It can be dressed up by adding black or brown eyeliner for evening or just a light dusting of the gold on the top and bottom lids for daytime dazzle.  I always suggest using 2-3 coats of mascara day or night.

The trick to selecting gold eye shadow is to pick the warmest color that blends with your skin tone.  Fair skin should use more light yellow golds while olive or ebony skin should lean more toward bronze and darker metallics.  You can also use the 24K gold dust (as seen in the picture above) to highlight your cheek bones and brow bones. 

What is your favorite color to make your eyes sparkle?

Making a Splash!

With summer nearly upon us and the temperature rising I wanted to share with you some of my favorites for vacationing and relaxing poolside in any setting. First thing to remember is to keep it simple. The most important thing is a perfect bathing suit. With the fashion this year being bright colors, every girl in the cabana is going to try and stand out. One of my favorite styles of bikinis this year is one with fringe. The fringe is always super cute, fun & sexy. Remember everything you bring to pool should fit nicely into a cute tote. One of my favorite features of this perfect poolside post is the towel. It matches the simple black and white design of the tote and will make a the very cute fuchsia bikini pop even more. I love mixing fuchsia with bright blues. Of course accessories are a must to complete any fashionable day. A big bright fun bracelet adds a girly touch. I love the summer look of light blue nails and a blue pair of flip flops with a bow are the perfect way to finish putting together this great look.
What's your favorite item to wear/bring to a pool party?
