Ah London, you never disappoint! There’s just something perfectly understated about matte shadows that quietly invokes mystery while letting the fashion have the glory. Makes my soul smile! We saw mattes beautifully smoked out in taupes + browns as well as simple matte color washes in apricots + nudes. So of course I had to translate the look from Holly Fulton’s show on the lovely Emmy Rossum last night for the Global Green Oscar Party!

FASHION FRIDAY

Let’s be honest, figuring out how to wear your hair with a particular outfit can be really hard. We’re going to try and simplify that with “Fashion Fridays”. Every Friday we’ll pick a new shape, silhouette, neckline, etc… We’ll go over which hairstyles to pair the look with and why. Hopefully this will help us all connect the gap between hair + fashion.

Xx Kristin
