The obvious day to night eye makeup bump up is adding black/brown liner to the inner waterline. But a lot of my clients love wearing that during the day too. So for my girls out there that wear a little more and want a little more, this one’s for you!

HAIR ACCESSORY ROUNDUP

Attachment-1-1

While it can be totally satisfying to splurge on that new cult-fave hair PRODUCT or CURLING WAND you’ve been coveting, I’m also big on the thrill of adding gorgeous and versatile hair accessories to my growing collection. They provide a level of instant gratification that products and tools sometimes can’t…like great jewelry, a chic hair clip or interesting accessory can instantly elevate an otherwise simple look. With ongoing summer temps being of the relentless persuasion (what? I can’t hear you over the squirt bottle/fan combo I’m waving around my face like its my job.), we’ve pulled together a well-rounded list of perfect accessories to help you chill. Links below the photos.

1. SAFETY PIN CLIP  I’d wear a paper clip too if it was dipped in gold. It’s just SUH cute!

2. OVERSIZED BARRETTE This classic barrette must have chowed the “eat me” cake (Alice & Wonderland fans?). Mini things are adorable, but giant versions are just plain useful. Also how is this only $4?!

3. TORTOISESHELL CHIGNON STICK  I always have one of these in my bag – it’s way chicer than a pencil holding up a chignon when you’re burning the midnight oil.

4. GOLD LEAF CLUSTER HEADBAND Such a perfect bridesmaid hair accessory! Anyone can throw this in and make simple waves or a loose updo something major!

5. GOLD HEART CLIP Never met a shape clip I didn’t like. Bonus points if you can create a braided updo this interesting before adding it in!

6. HANDMADE GOLD HAIRPIN Have nothing for your hair that you do not know to be beautiful, or believe to be useful.

7. TURQUOISE AND BRASS BARRETTE This statement piece is so gorgeous and unique – use it with THIS trick to pony-up thick locks in the prettiest of ways.

8. THIN GOLD BAR HAIR CLIP Dramatic, yet simple – use this thin clip to hold back a few key pieces in any half-up scenario.

9. INFINITY HAIR CLIP For my finer-haired girls, this little gem is small and light-weight, so it can add a little pizazz to your maine without weighing it down.

10. SILK PONY BRAIDER When you find your creative vibes are flowing, make the prettiest braid ever with this soft pink silk woven through it.

11. CRYSTAL LEAF HEADBAND This is special enough to grace the locks of a late summer/early fall bride! It has just the right amount of sparkle, and the asymmetry keeps things interesting.

12. GOLD OUTLINE HAIR CLIP Simple and sleek – this barrette will keep your locks off your neck without drawing too much attention away from a very on-trend off-the-shoulder number.

….And the best part is, no one will notice your back sweat when you make gorgeous hair the focal point. Am I right?!

March 1st is the perfect time to start transitioning your makeup for Spring. Okay, we still aren’t leaving home without coats and scarves but the promise of warmer weather is enough to lighten our spirits! And the perfect way to reflect that with our makeup is to start dusting a little bronzer on our lids and our faces. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

TBDWinterBronzeLiteEYES

EYE STEPS:

  1. Sweep the copper shade all over the lid and crease.
  2. Trace the same shade along the lower lashline as well.
  3. Stamp the gold shade on the center of the lid to give it a pop.
  4. Line the upper lashline with the bronze pencil.
  5. Coat the lashes with mascara.

TBDWinterBronzeLiteFACE

FACE + LIP STEPS:

  1. Suck in your cheeks and follow the hollow with the bronzer.
  2. Continue sweeping it on the temples.
  3. Apply it along your hairline.
  4. Don’t forget your jawline.
  5. And sweep the remaining bronzer on the sides of your nose and across the bridge of your nose to give it that sun-kissed look.
  6. Smile and pop the blush on the top half of your cheekbones.
  7. Finish by filling in your lip area with the liquid lipstick.

Clutch the pearls, girls!! As you may know, we’re always on the hunt for new hair accessories. We live for a good trend but we also get down with the stand-alone classic! (Remember THIS ONE!?) Pearls are clearly a classic but we’re finding that they’re having a big moment right now and wanted share some of our current faves!

  1. THE PEARL PONY. Dresses up a simple outfit in a classic way.
  2. DOUBLE STRAND PEARL/STAR HEADBAND. So gorgeous. You could definitely see this on a maid-of-honor.
  3. PEARL VINE HEADBAND. And then of course, this on a bride!
  4. PEARL BOBBYPINS (ASSORTED SIZES). Love this set of four! So great for placing randomly in a chignon or braid.
  5. TINY LEAF COMBS. Dresses up a messy bun in under two minutes! I know these aren’t pearl but they made it into the accessory report anyway! So dainty.
  6. SINLGE PEARL FRENCH PIN. This is my FAVORITE of all of these. So simple and extremely chic.
