Three Steps to a Stress Free Holiday Look

December 17, 2016 2 min read

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.

Pro-Age Approach To Skin Care
Pro-Age Approach To Skin Care

Aging. It is the number one concern of my clients’ skin consultations. As time
passes, experiences and lifestyle practices leave a few souvenirs. Sun damage,
expression lines, decreased density. These signs of aging can lead many to a
feeling a loss as though they are some how less-than the younger version of
themselves. The beauty industry has created quite a racket and an unholy profit
devaluing woman for this INCREDIBLY beautiful and natural process that isn’t
granted to everyone.

I love to change the narrative when I educate about aging to empower my clients to approach aging skin as part of a wellness and vitality practice. 

Here’s a few actions you can choose to support your skin so it can take care of
you. Its never too late to start.

While it is always the thought that counts, sharing the Carolily love with a mom in your life is a wonderful representation of her beautiful personality. There is nothing quite like gifting someone a piece of Carolily jewelry and seeing their face light up as they explain, "This is perfectly ME!".

All of our statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings would make lovely gifts, but we have five pieces in mind that we think are the winners for Mother's Day!
