With Christmas quickly approaching, along with parties, dinners, and nights out, it’s time to dust off that sparkly dress, and glam up your party look. Don’t worry - I have you covered with my three steps to a stress free look. From timeless red lips and classic winged liner, to a bold beautiful smokey eye, and for the final touch, a statement necklace from local designer, Carolily Finery.
# 1. BOLD RED LIPS – The classic red lip never goes out of style, and paired with a winged liner, you’re set to make a grand entrance.
Fair skin tones - Try a cool blue based shade like Blu Red or Cranberry LipSense. (Bonus, these shades also make your teeth look whiter!)
Medium to olive skin tones - Stick to warmer based reds like SheLaLa, and Red Cherry LipSense.
Darker skin tones – Go for plum reds to brick tones as they will have great pigmentation and not look pasty. Try Brick, Mojave, or Rhubarb.
# 2. SMOKEY EYES – If you want all eyes on you, then go for bold smokey eyes with a touch of sparkle, and pair with a soft neutral lip. For a softer look, try a brown tone, like Smoked Topaz or a deep grey like Ebony Essence. For that all out smokey eye go for a black like Onyx.
# 3. SPARKLE – Don’t be afraid to add some sparkle to your LBD, by adding a statement necklace or earrings. Accessories can help take your look up a notch from simple to glamorous. Try necklaces that have mixed metals or stonework and sparkle, such as those shown below from Carolily Finery. You can really add your personality to your look with make-up & jewelry. Do you want to feel playful, bold, feminine or sexy? I am always amazed how the simple things can make you feel more confident and beautiful, so don’t be afraid to let your inner diva sparkle and shine.

As we sit here, writing this article, we know that we'll never experience this moment again. We'll never be this exact age again. We'll never feel this exact way again. We'll never look identical to how we do in this moment. We only have the present.
When we are struggling with the reflection we see in the mirror, feeling like it doesn't match how youthful we feel inside, we like to remind ourselves of five reasons why this is our best age ever.
How often have you heard "she looks good for her age" or had someone assume something about you because of your age? We're all guilty of it. Society perpetuates the idea that once we cross the birthday threshold into our 50s or... *gasp*...our 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, that there are limitations based on a number.
We always say that age is "just" a number. But, that's not totally true, is it?
