Sunglasses are a statement for the face. We all feel fierce when we have that awesome pair of sunglasses on the eye. Seriously, admit it, you know you do… That is the first thing people see and comment on. Either around your eyes or on top of the head, eyes will stare out of envy with one of these ( or more) pair of sunglasses. All this talk about sunglasses is making me want a new pair! Geez!!
There’s a new sheriff in town and her name is Tory Burch. Finally, after years of creating such magical collections of clothing, accessories and shoes, she has now introduced her own makeup line. Her line is exclusive to Nordstrom and contains blush/bronzer, lipsticks, face brush and lip tint. The colors are perfect for spring and for a starter collection, its doesn’t overwhelm you with too many choices.
Nars has come out with The Final Cut Collection, again brought exclusively to Nordstrom. The collection is the new edge of pink, featuring a modern montage of passionate and provocative hues. The blushes have transparent pigments for a soft and sheer look, the lip pencils have high impact colors with a soft sheer feel.
As much as I would give just about anything (to a point) to be attending spring 2014 NYFW, I regretfully am not. But, if I were to be attending this glam fashion fest, I would have the essentials to survive the week with. Attending fashion week is extremely stressful work you know (wink); with the back and forth to venues and trying to get in to your favorite show, snapping pics etc.. What’s a girl to do? With these beauty essentials, you’ll want them just to have in your purse at all times, not just for Fashion Week.

There are so many ways to wear gold as an accent during the holidays and especially for New Years Eve. Gold accents in makeup, skin and the hair can really add a special touch that will bring out say… your eyes. Below are some really great tips that will have you sparkling and shining…..
FOR THE SKIN:
Using an enhancing powder for your body or face will give a subtle little glow and sparkle, but be sure not to use anything that has too much of gold specks, make sure is light and airy. Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancer in Gold, and my choice of which I most definitely am trying is Marc Jacobs Beauty Lightshow Luminizing Powder, and for an all over body glow try Edward Bess All Over Seduction in Afterglow.
Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancer $95 Neimanmarcus.com
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lightshow Luminizing Powder $59 Sephora.com

For The Eyes:
Other than the lips, the eyes are the first thing that someone looks at on your face and for special events and parties. When using eyeshadows try using my favorite MAC Cosmetics Nocturnals Pigments and Colors, this will make your eyes pop. For that extra mile, try Kre-At 24 Karat Gold Lashes
MAC Cosmetics Pigment in Gold $21 maccosmetics.com

For The Hair:
If you want to be the belle of the party and really get them staring, try Oribe 24 -Karat Gold Pomade. Use to sleek back your ponytail and add some sparkle or use on a side swept bang.
The nails are definitely a statement maker and when you make your rounds at your party or event, go ahead, show off your nails girl! You’ll be the envy of the party.
