Music videos has had a huge influence on my choice of style ever since I was a teenager. I remember every day when I got home from school, I always turned on ZTV and sat in front of the tv watching dope music videos for hours. I'm still obsessed with visuals to music and as many of my favorite rappers have some serious style game, I always love watching their bourgeios clothes combined with an exceptional sound and dope visuals.
With Gucci designs as long as the eye can see, this video was bound to be a success with Swae Lee wearing an embroidered black leather Gucci jacket, Gucci Mane rocking shades with multiple gold crosses hanging down & my absolute favorite, Slim Jxmmi in a red Gucci fur coat with a diamond on.
Migos never cease to amaze me, with all 3 boys sporting their own personal style, they always deliver creative visuals, eclectic music and stylish gear. I draw the most inspiration from the member 'Takeoff' though. I fell in love with the sleek emerald green fur jacket he wore in the 'Cocoon' video & his patchwork jeans, long coat, bandana and statement shades he wore in the 'Bad Intentions' video featuring Niykee Heaton. (Who also dressed to kill in a gorgeous nude body, trenchcoat and black utility jacket)
I've already done a review of this product here, but been lazy when it comes to showing results in pictures. (Mainly because I really don't like selfies, or being photographed what so ever), but since I want to focus more on beauty related posts, I thought I'd show you guys more products, reviews, results, swatches & maybe even tutorials some day.
Sleek Highlighting Palette - here
Sleek Highlighting Palette in Precious Metals is a mix of 3 luxurious creamy shades and one powdery: Platinum, Royal Gold, Renaissance & Antique Bronze. Simply blend with your fingers and apply to the inner corners of the eyes, across the brow bone and along the tops of the cheekbones. (apply with an eyeshadow brush for increased intensity and precision.)
You can also use a foundation brush to apply onto shoulders, down the centre of the arms and onto décolletage.
As stated in my review, I really love this product. It's affordable, easy to apply and gives amazing results. Just one tip when using: be careful with the color since it's quite intense. Use a cotton swab to remove a bit of the product if you've overdone it.
Will be buried in magazines all weekend, compose some new, dope outfit shoots, workout and study. With other words, a couple of relaxing days to look forward to.
I've been thinking about focusing my posts more on beauty since that's also one of my biggest interests. I've built more of a style blog and I feel like I want a bit more diversity and more to write about. Since I am a beautician as well as beauty writer, I will from now on share more beauty related posts, including products/ product reviews, trends, tips and beauty looks. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it just as much as me.
Three is a trend. It's just as simple as that. Now, let me introduce you to the biggest Fall/ Winter 2016-17 trends, which I've narrowed down to 5 trends/3 designers each.
Oscar de la Renta, Nicole Miller, Topshop Unique
The dramatic eyeliner from spring 2016 continues to be the statement eye makeup for fall. Play it safe with a plain cat eye or go bananas and draw a geometric liner Á la Topshop Unique.
Bottega Veneta, Dior, Fenty x Puma by Rihanna
As the sky turns darker, so does our lips. (okay, maybe not literally, but the it-color does) Anyways, greet your lover with a romantic wine kiss or bring out the devil in you, by taking on Rihanna's ebony black lipstick shade from her debut collection with Puma.
GLITTER MAKES IT BETTER
Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger, No.21
It most certainly does. Apply your makeup as the princess you are by adding an ounce of glitter to your eyelides as seen at sporty Tommy Hilfiger. And if you're looking for a more dramatic look, place glitter below your eyes down to your cheekbones, looking just like a Burberry model. Whatever you prefer.
IT'S OKAY TO GLOW
Valentino, Balmain, Ralph Lauren
Whether it's your striking persona or impressive strobing technique, make sure your haters (or followers) see you glow throughout the dull days of fall.
Versace, Elie Saab, Giorgio Armani
Look très chic while strutting down the city streets in Kendall Jenner's simple smoky eye from the Versace runway, and evacuate the dancefloor on a Saturday night out looking like the glam rock n' roll girls at Elie Saab.
ROMANCE AIN'T DEAD JUST YET
Saint Laurent, Sibling, Prada
I guess a fall without red lips is pretty much non-existent. Orangey, deep and vampy red pouts came down the runways one after another during several shows. A classic, lovable nuance if you ask me.
So, I recently tried out the double top knot hairstyle that's been trending for quite some time, and I must admit that I fell in love! I haven't really had an opinion on this particular hair look before, maybe just tought for a second or two that it looked a bit childish? Well, I take that back for sure because it went really well with the edgy outfit I chose to pair it with and adds a bit of playfulness to the complete attire, don't you think?
I mean, I never experiment with my hair and makeup looks. I tend to stick to the same because that's what I feel most comfortable in. But that's about to change now for sure. I've decided to up my beauty game and become more innovative with my hair and makeup looks. Just wait and see.
