Trending Tuesday #13 Beauty

Beauty NYFW

As NYFW wrapped up I had to check out the details from the shows. During the Fashion Week’s I am mainly concentrating on the trends you can see on the catwalks. I often think beauty trends are the hardest to follow. What we mortals have to remember is that models are models because of their versatility and the fact they can have anything done with their face or hair and still look amazing. I for sure am not one of these people. For a start, having darker skin means I have to be careful of what colours I use ….. do you have that too? I always hear people saying “I could never wear that colour it would make me look to yellow/pale/dark etc”. What you all don’t know about me, is that when I was a student I worked for Estee Lauder on the counter and of course, every season we received new products but, what I noticed was that everyone usually came in for their ‘products’.

Well for the past season and it looks like future ones too, I am able to emulate some of the beauty looks from the Catwalk into my own make-up bag and routine. Wet hair is something I have been doing forever, it all came about when I went to the hairdresser in my local town when I was about 10 and clearly she didn’t know about about my Middle Eastern type hair and has she blow dried my hair I just saw it getting bigger and bigger! Basically, I looked like someone from the Soul Train and since then I have never blow dried my hair unless its a blow out and then I go a little crazy and ask the hair dresser to run the GHD’s over it just in case. At Derek Lam, incase your hair does go bad you can wear a turban and if your looking for good ones don’t forget to check out Malaak from Dubai.

Essentials

Aside from the wet hair the trend on lips seemed to be to wear Orange! I have been wearing this from time to time, mostly when I m in Dubai and it calls for more make-up than my regular look in Amsterdam. So next season I will for sure be embracing orange lips and mixing it up with my white outfits!

My Beauty Essentials: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir, Juliette Has a Gun Romanitca, Chanel Mascara 10, Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss 56, Mac Mineralize power, Mac lipstick Amplified

Wang!

Alexander-Wang-Spring-2014-Handbags-2LFW has started and I have finally got round to finding all my favourite looks from NYFW which I will share with you over the weekend. First, some arm candy from my favourite show; Alexander Wang. I loved the entire collection I feel like I m constantly a stuck record as I just keep going on about it but, I just was and am infatuated.

The soft pastels reminded me of childhood summers and cotton candy and so since I am now at the age I have to look after my teeth I will happily swap cotton candy for Arm Candy in the form of this gorgeous Alexander Wang clutch. I think it will look perfect with a sherbet colour outfit or all white.

Happy Friday all and have an awesome evening xx

P.S I also loved all the branding and details at Alexander Wang show.

Wintour Smiles

BTpsk-oCMAAqbrmHey loves,  Yes, its NYFW and I have been watching carefully all weekend at the shows but, before NYFW even closes I think we can all agree this is the best look ….. Ever. Whilst all eyes are usually on models and catwalk this morning at Victoria Beckham it was all about the FrontRow. The most Stylish man, with a beautiful daughter sitting next to the powerhouse of fashion! Here is the breaking news …. Anna Wintour smiles! Who knows what she thinks of Victoria Beckham’s SS 14 show but, one thing is for sure she clearly has a soft spot for Harper Beckham or maybe its David 😉

Do you love this photo too?

The Scene at Louis Vuitton was a hotel with people throwing on what they had in their rooms and lets say this is one stylish hotel. Loved Mr Marc Jacob’s PJ’S too.Louis Vuitton

I really like the pictures of the LV show from The Sartorialist where you could see the set much clearer than these pics from style.com

Do we all want to look this this when we are on our next hotel visit? Yes, I think so because its Justnice!

West Coast grunge was the theme for Saint Laurent Fall 2013. I love this look though finding it hard to carry off. However, I am the biggest fan of most things with stars so i was happy to see the cardigan below featured in this collection. See below for the Justnice looks. Grunge at Saint LaurentSaint Laurent detailsWhat did you think of this collection?

 

The Justnice looks in from Stella McCartney. As always her front row was packed with celebrity friends and relatives but still she is a success because her clothes are just made for women. StellaStella McCartneyStellaMs McCartney
