Makeup Brushes: The Basics



Greetings fashionistas!

Today, I want to share with you something different. 
Makeup Brushes!




I love this guide because it shows the right brush to use. Of course, if you don't wear a lot of makeup like me, you don't need all these brushes. Just the basics. But, if you do go all out for a special occasion, investing in a quality makeup brush is key. 

How many brushes do you have in your makeup kit? Share with us!

Stay fabulous!

Petite Woman: How to Dress Your Body

Happy Friday!

Today, I'm sharing with you a very helpful guide for the petite woman. If you are like me, not all tips fit for my body type. While searching for more helpful tips, I found this guide on Pinterest. One thing I've learned is not to be afraid of experimenting...no matter your age. For most of us, our bodies change for whatever reason. That's why we do our best to flatter the body type we have in this moment. 

How to flatter different petite shapes One of my Facebook followers asked, “I would really appreciate some suggestions for petite women who are gaining weight at middle age.” Well, honestly, there are petite women of all ages who struggle with dressing their bodies. Some of us are born with or are able to create healthy and stunning bodies. Hooray! And then there are those of us who are little and a little rounded. Or little and a lot rounded. Or little with huge boobs. Or little with significan:

What I love about this guide is that it shows us the same dress but with different accessories and tops. Proportion is key. Also, the monochromatic look with accent accessories makes for the perfect outfit for petite women.

Which example looks best for you? Did this guide help you? Let me know.

Stay fabulous and have an awesome weekend!

Petite Dressing: How to Look Taller

Happy Friday!

Today, I decided to share with you another style tip for petite women like myself. 

It's not always easy to know what to wear when you mesure under 5 feet 4 inches. But it's possible.


column of colour tips to look taller, Imogen Lamport, Wardrobe Therapy:

I love this guide. It illustrates different outfits you can wear. Note the monochromatic detail in each outfit. This draws the eye from head-to-toe, giving the illusion of height.

This guide also gives us outfit ideas for the whole week. How great is that!

What do you think of this guide? Are you a petite lady and would like to share your stories? Please let me know.

Make Your Legs Look Longer

Greetings Fashionistas!

Are you a petite woman and would like to look a bit taller? I know this is something I strive to achieve every day.

Thanks to this fashion guide I found on Pinterest, my clothes and shoes will give the illusion of longer legs.

I love these simple tips. They show great examples on how to look a bit taller. 

Monochromatic outfits is one tip I would add to this guide. Wearing the same shade helps the eye flow down the outfit. If you are wearing jeans with a white blouse, that's fine too. One last thing I would add about the monochromatic outfit, be careful with prints and colors. Too much is not a good thing. For example, leopard print or fluorescent colors.

What do you think? Need any help or advice about how to look taller? Please let me know.

Stay fabulous!

Contrary to the rectangular(oblong) face, the best styles for your lovely square-shaped face is the long slender earrings and the hoops. Big chunky earrings will only fight with your fabulous angles.

The Right Earrings for Your Oblong Face!

Happy Monday!

Hope you had an awesome weekend! Thank you for your likes and shares last week!

Today, I continue my series on earrings and face shapes.


Earrings for Oblong Face, Imogen Lamport, Wardrobe Therapy, Inside out Style blog, Bespoke Image, Image Consultant, Colour Analysis:

An oblong face looks best with shapes like heart, tear-drops and hoops. Because your lovely face is more of a rectangular shape, it's best to avoid the long earrings.

Do you have an oblong face? What are your favorite styles to wear? Let me know.

Stay fabulous!
