New! Zoya Naturel Duex (2) 2014

Zoya_Nail_Polish_Naturel 2 Group_spill_4_bottles_RGB_sm

It was love at first sight with the new Zoya Naturel Duex Collection. I love all the creamy neutral shades, they are perfect for Fall. If you have’t tried a Zoya polish yet you are missing out. The polish brush makes quick and clean application a breeze. The best part is they dry really fast and are very chip resistant.  Be sure to grab some of these great new colors for Fall while supplies last.

I really love all these shades which is hard to say with most collections. The standouts for me have to be Spence and Madeline, both gorgeous neutrals and unbelievable shine!

Stay tuned for my review of the swoon worthy new Zoya collections Ignite and Entice!

Zoya Naturel Duex 2014 $9
Inspired by the desire to expand the popular neutral palette of the Zoya NATUREL collection, six (6) NEW, full-coverage creams in deeper hues were born.

How to Achieve the Perfect Top Knot!

Top Knot- front

The Top Knot is the ideal style for any occasion as it can easily be paired with a dressed up or down ensemble for the perfect look. Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Stylist, shares how to achieve this look:

  • For best results, start with day two hair onwards as your hair will be easier to manage with an already ‘lived -in’ texture.
  • Mist hair with dry shampoo, focusing primarily on the roots mainly – this will give your hair more texture, grip and volume.
  • Then mist a light hairspray throughout for some hold and grip.
  • Sweep your hair into high ponytail. Keep checking what it looks like from your profile so you position ponytail in the most flattering point of your head for your face shape.
  • Take the ponytail and back-brush from the underneath lightly – this creates a slight disheveled texture.
  • Sweep around the base of the ponytail and pin using U shaped hairpins. These really anchor the hair best which means you will only need 2 or 3 to secure.

This creates perfectly disheveled topknot that looks ultra stylish and works for any event.

Review: L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation #VLBlurfection

AndieFullSize_06182014165632

Ok I will admit I’m a foundation snob. I have always felt with foundation you get what you pay for and if you go cheap its going to wreck your skin or simply not work. So when I was asked to review the new L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation I might have had some preconceived notions about how it would work.

After my first use I realized I was very wrong thinking you had to break the bank to get a great foundation. The word Blur might make you think heavy, silicone like foundations but this is a very lightweight foundation. It felt incredibly light on my skin and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.  I love how it made my pores nearly disappear and evened out my skin tone. Just a pea sized amount it enough to perfect my skin and I finish with a setting powder. A great foundation and under $15, I can’t wait to check out more from the L’Oréal Paris Blur line!
