BYBB Makeup Palette REVIEW!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m reviewing the Be Yourself Be Beautiful (BYBB) Makeup Palette! For this review, I created a makeup look featuring every product in the palette. The palette includes four eyeshadows, two lip glosses, one blush, and one bronzer. I really wanted to do something different with this look by creating a romantic twist with a loose side braid and bejeweled headband.

Before I get to the good stuff, here are pictures of the makeup look that I created using the BYBB palette:

Statement Outerwear!

Hi, fashionistas!

As usual, I’ve been researching fashion trends and I’ve come up with my must-have list for fall and winter outerwear. These statement pieces are sure to get attention and double takes. Cool, right? Here’s some of my favorites:

The "I NEED IT!" Outerwear

  • Trench Coat with Studs: The studs add an unexpected edge to the classic trench. It’s a great idea for a night out or a special day!
  • Faded Denim Jacket With Lots of Rips: This is perfect for the cool vibe you need for a school day or even a trip to the mall or movie!
  • Words on the Back of Jackets: This is a fun idea for any day and event! Put it over a tee, sweater, or a casual dress for a graphic take on the classic denim or leather jacket.
  • Fitted Letterman Jackets: This is a super cute take on the oh-so-preppy football team jacket! If you’re aiming for the prepster look or are just looking to add some prep to your style, I suggest this! You can wear it to school, the mall, the movies, or on a casual weekend with friends, but maybe not on a first date.
  • A Polka Dot Trench With a Colorful Collar: I could see me wearing this coat when I’m feeling happy or just need a little whimsy in my day. Even in the girly, pink color, it would look great at a semi-formal party or special event. Trust me, you’ll be happy you bought it.
  • Stained Leather and Vegan Leather Jackets: Whether the jackets are a rainbow or deep red color, they’re awesome! These jackets are immensely popular for fall and winter, because of the unique treatment of the leather. You can wear them to semi-formal events, the mall, or even to the movies!

So, that’s my take on the top trend of statement outerwear! Would you wear statement outerwear or do you think it’s too bold? Let me know in the comments below! I want to know your thoughts! Until my next post, fashionistas! I love my lovely readers! Goodbye for now!

GET GRAPHIC!

Hi, fashionistas!

Hallways tend to be pretty boring with the plain walls and all, so add some umph by wearing graphic tops and pants! Who knows, you may even spark a new trend at your school!  Be that trendsetter. I know you are, fashionista!

Get Graphic! - Tee's
Get Graphic! - Pants

Get Graphic! – Pants by theteenrunway11 featuring highwaist pants

You can wear a pair of pants with a geometric design or maybe a top with a cool lion head against a black background. Both of them are edgy, yet both are unique.

Well, that’s all for this post, fashionistas! Until my next one! Thank you for reading, and I love you guys so much!

Glam Makeup and Hair Look!

Hi, fashionistas!

Summer is the season for sun, fun, and vacays to the beach! Well, that’s usually the case. Summer is also about fashion and glam! So, let’s party!

Glam is a fun beauty trend to try anytime of the year! A super-simple, natural eye look with black mascara and a powerful lip is a classic glam style!

Hair can also be glam-ified! Big, shiny curls are gorgeous and go with any look, night or day. The way I see it, if you curl your hair, you’re instantly a model. It feels great!

Ok, so enough with the chit-chat. Here’s my look:

DETAILS: Lancôme lipgloss in the shade 300, Estée Lauder mascara, CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Sheerly Nudes, Smashbox highlighter stick (brow bone), Clinique foundation & concealer, Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

P.S. I used a curling iron to achieve this look. This isn’t my natural curl (I wish!).

Until my next post, fashionistas! Thank you for reading! I hope you liked my look! Love you guys!

Heels, Bags, and Accessory REVIEW!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m writing about four scores I found at the Juicy Couture Winter Sale (50% off all sale items)! I’m kind of obsessed with the way Juicy Couture items look and the quality of them. The quality of these shoes, clutch, bag, and headband are really well done, and it shows! Let’s get started with shoes:

1. These beauties are leopard-printed genius. They have the perfect amount of drama and umph to your next evening outfit! The comfort is also key for me, so these fit within that category as well. These heels were only: $35. They retailed for $198! SCORE!

I love it! I’ve already worn it in another post. I bought this clutch for only $35. It retailed for $198! SCORE!

$35

3. I love this red bag so much! It adds just the right pop of color where I need it (depending on the color pallet). It’s all leather with snakeskin and stingray-embossed details! This bag is very spacious without being bulky. It was only $60, and retailed for $348! SCORE!

4. This snakeskin-embossed leather headband is perfect for an on-the-go addition to your hair! The only problem is, if you straighten your hair or if you have fine hair, it might fall out as the day/night goes on. Otherwise it’s super cute and playful! I bought it for only $15, and it retailed for $45. SCORE!

$15

All the products in this post (retailed priced) totaled a whopping $790! I only paid $145! The heels and two bags each came with a gold and black dust bag! That says a lot about the quality products they sell, too.

Thank you for reading, fashionistas! I hope you enjoyed my post! 🙂

TOP 4 TRENDS OF SUMMER 2012! (Guest post on stylesays.com)

The guest post:

Hi, fashionistas!

This season has been an amazing one so far! I’m in love with every single trend. They are so fashion forward and sometimes even vintage. In this post, I’m going to talk about the four biggest trends for teens this summer!

Number one: Short shorts are so in right now! They are really cute and flirty (and, on the plus side, they keep you cool). Love them! This is my model, Valerie, wearing her favorite pair of short shorts:

Number two: This one is a big one! Bikinis are in like always. I really like them because they show skin, but not too much of it! Bikinis are flirty, and have a cute vibe to them. Love them! Here is my model Ashley wearing her favorite bikini:

Number three: Patterned skirts are a big hit this summer! They are really cool and chic! Some have a little bit going on, and some have a large amount of pattern. I like both styles. So cute! Here am I wearing my favorite patterned skirt (which happens to be a body-con skirt):

Number four: Neon pink purses are so fashionable this summer! These purses add the right pop of color to your outfit! It’s fun to make let your accessories be the focal point. This is my neon pink purse:

I had a lot of fun writing this post as always. I hope you liked it!

Until my next post, fashionistas! I love all my readers! You mean the world to me.

Lauren
