Charlize Theron rosebud look…

Let’s start with the peach make-up. Blush, lipstick, eye shadow, everything is exquisitely coordinated! But do not fall into “drab”, it is important to frame the eyes: eyebrows and eyelashes should be outlined. As for the hair, the romantic loose chignon is a must! A tip? Go for a headband with gems to hold your wisps.

Demonstration with the video tutorial below…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful long wavy hair…

Wasn’t Aphrodite, goddess of love, always covering her nudity with her long blond hair? The proof in pictures when Jessica Biel, Reese Whiterspoon and Madonna let their hair down… Glamorous! Some rules to adopt this look? Number 1: no heat with the blow dryer! And create large natural curls you will undo right away for a clean/messy style.

Dressing up like a star for this gala season, that will end with the Oscars on February 26th, is as simple as that: For the next 3 blogs, we will teach you how to copy 3 beauty looks!

Angelina Jolie’s red lips:Make-up professionals would say vibrant red lips can be considered as a fashion accessory. It is highly recommended to only emphasize one part of your face, so you do not overdo it! An example? Highlighting your eyebrows will make your eyes stand out. One last tip for the road? If you go for a red dress, it is absolutely crucial your lipstick red shade totally matches!

Fashion is so great it goes more and more to unisex, so what suits your husband can also suit you!
Hats:

These adornments typically reserved to men are trendy again this winter, just as they were last summer. So do not hesitate and cover your magnificent hair with lovely felt hats, which also protect you from the cold.

No down jacket or winter boots talking here… But then “what is it? “You ask yourself, stamping with impatience! So what is it about, you wonder!!! In the evening, once the children have gone to bed, slip into a warm bath to which you add a few drops of SOS Cold Bath from Lotus Aroma. Really? Yes, it works!

These two words do not sound like they can easily be next to each other, but here are two ways to avoid contracting pneumonia at the first gust of wind… while being trendy of course!

We love:

A fur hat from Canadian brand Nobis ($69.99):

A pair shoes from Australian brand EMU ($199), vintage sneakers look, but lined with sheepskin and fully waterproof:

Chic and Warm we said!

We love this famous accessory that makes our legs highly desirable… and protects them from cold. But what are the trends this season?

The prints: dots, lace, geometric patterns, animal prints. This winter, there is something for everyone! Be careful though to choose the good pattern for your body type, the biggest the pattern is, the thicker your legs look – and the opposite…

We will go for the season’s palette: shades of grey, black and blue. Unlike our colorful wardrobe, stockings are better in more neutral colors.

Now our legs can be sexy and warm, all at the same time!

Today we decided to reveal one of the stars and models best kept secrets… a beauty tip that proved itself along the years. Pure chlorophyll! One teaspoon in a glass of water every morning before breakfast gives you a glowing complexion. This is very simple, as it helps detoxifying your body, your skin just looks healthier. A 3 weeks course 4 times a year is enough, just like top models do!

Available in pharmacies and organic stores.

Again, plain or twisted thick knitwear is trendy this year, showing Scandinavian patterns or other colourful snowflakes. Impossible to avoid this warm comforting trend, available in every possible colour at every brand’s in the world (Gap, Old Navy, The Bay, Zara, H&MRoots) – and at every price! We will mix them with leggings or slim pants, depending on our mood.

Tip: never forget! One of fashion most crucial rule is to always mix loose-fitting tops with slim bottoms.
