I had to try it out for myself. I used the brush to apply foundation and it took about 6 seconds to get total face coverage. I can’t wait to try it on my body with self-tanner!

Sally Hansen and Stella McCartney for Spring 2016

SALLY HANSEN ADDS A LUMINOUS TOUCH TO THE STELLA MCCARTNEY 2016

SPRING PRESENTATION IN NEW YORK

I love a haute designer collaboration as much as any other fashionista! As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2015, Sally Hansen continues to collaborate with the designer to present clean, sleek head-to-toe looks for the New York runway. Sally Hansen compliments Stella McCartney’s silhouettes of modern femininity with a gorgeous bare look that adds the perfect glow that is trending this spring season.

THE NAIL LOOK

Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole, added a natural light-infused shimmer to the runway, boasting a semi-transparent nude, manicured nail with a pearly silver dimension. The perfectly illuminating shade choice was from Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure Collection. “We used ‘Almost Almond,’ a nude shade lightly dusted with a silver fleck giving it a pearlescent quality,” said Madeline Poole. “I wanted to use something with semi coverage that would act as an illuminator or glow on the nails.”

Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection infuses trend-setting shades with an expert quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home.

THE STELLA MCCARTNEY SPRING 2016 COLLECTION

Vibrant energy created by a liberating play on volume and color; a modern interpretation of the masculine and feminine attitude.

Tailoring is clean and fluid. A structured jacket wrapped at the waist. An oxford blue crisp cotton poplin shirtdress with scarf extension envelopes the body creating a new silhouette.

Wild flowers lead a spray of botanical embroidered threadwork into linear structured silhouettes of dresses, a tailored suit and a duchess bomber jacket. An intoxicating collage of pop floral prints are dominated by black and secured by solid bands of fabric to create gentle volumes.

Broderie anglaise is given the tomboy twist. Eyelet threadwork lace embroidery trims are chopped up and placed onto full skirts, rounded dresses melting into gauzy cotton knits and a Noma bag.

A running horse motif spread across delicate fil coupe pieces in shades of flamingo, black, and ivory.

Evening is light and airy.  Free flowing volumes create effortless movement.  Bold shades of peony, pink and sun in billowyparachute slip dress strung together with understated gold hardware threaded through pleated necklines. Open backs and high necks reveal a sense of confidence.

Shoes are influenced by dancing slippers and sport slip-ons. Soft glove alter nappa, floral embroidered satin, tapestry tulips and applique jazz designs enliven uppers while velvety soles are either flat or raised by a prism crystal heel.

A knot bucket bag made from bonded alter nappa and micro suede and a pocket bag with iconic Falabella chain both feature floral and equestrian embellishments. A yellow and black hard box clutch with a plexi knot closure becomes a standout evening bag.

Wedding Day Bliss – 6 Beauty Must Haves for Your Big Day!

Many women dream about their wedding day since they were little girls. I, for one, was not one of them. My dress by Belinda’s Designs Haute Couture was neither poofy, nor white and my bouquet of flowers was made out of porcelain so I can have it forever. I did my own hair & makeup, paid no attention to any pre-wedding beauty preparations and hired Photographer & Cinematographer, Csaba Vigh to shoot my pre and wedding day images, because I wanted the “celebrity” photo experience!! lol I just did it my way and it turned out just fine.

However, if I had to do it all again – I would have taken a bit more precaution with the beauty primping & prepping. Now that wedding season is in full swing, for the lucky, ready and willing ones saying their “I Do’s,” I’m sharing some ultimate beauty must-haves to get every bride ready for her moment in the spotlight.

For touchable smooth and luminous skin use the Jergens Original Scent Moisturizer with new illuminating Hydralucence blend that eliminates dullness and dryness by creating a continuous layer of moisture on skin. The best way to prep your skin for the big day.

The easiest way to be picture perfect is to have a flawless complexion. Enriched with brightening actives like Symwhite and Adenosine, this fresh, weightless formula creates glowing luminosity for light to medium coverage.  Lancôme’s Miracle Cushion Foundation will provide glowing and even skin with ease.

Dance the night away frizz-free with John Frieda’s Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray. The Keratin-infused micro-fine mist creates a soft to the touch, brushable hold that sets your style and eliminates frizz. Hair will remain perfect and in place the entire magical evening. Sharing with the bridesmaids is optional!

Love is in the air… along with notes of joyful citrus, musk and delicate jasmine petals creating a timeless scent. Avon’s Today Tomorrow Always Amour captures the feel of every story book romance, everlasting, joyful and beautiful. 

Give your nails a classic look with OPI’s Infinite Shine Soft Shades Collection. This collection provides fashion forward nudes, pastels and blushes that will make the walk down the aisle a personal runway.

Much like the wedding dress, nails should be just as beautiful. Layer on with Sally Hansen’s Luxe Lace Nail Polish. Inspired by elegant lace, this polish will amp up the classic bridal mani with just one stroke.
