Beauty Trend: Pink All Over 

Earlier this season we saw pink and other bright hues make its way onto runway shows, in other words onto the eyes, cheeks and lips of models creating princess feel that has now made its way amongst celebs who have been rocking pink all over the red carpets lately.




Soft pink and shimmery rose shades are being used as blush, eye shadow and even on the lips that throws us back to that Californian teenager look.

Draping, replacing the ever popular contouring technique, has made a comeback in the beauty world and is being used for a more intense or avant-garde look by wearing your blush all the way up on the corner of your cheeks and to the side of your eyes.



Get the look:


NARS Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in Bouthan ($35)


DIOR Palette in Tutu ($62)


MAYBELLINE The Blushed Nudes Palette ($13)


URBAN DECAY Naked 3 Palette ($54)


MARC JACOBS Air Blush Palettes ($42)

Item of the Week: Long Denim Jacket

This week item of the week is the Zara long denim jacket.

 Denim has been a favorite trend for quite some time now. Most stores even have a denim section with items such as shirts, jackets, skirts, overalls etc…

I found this long denim jacket from Zara’s I am Denim collection. Long sleeves, ripped details, and side pockets, this jacket can be worn as a dress alone or over different outfit as a jacket.

Beauty Hacks Every Girl Needs To Know

We have all been in, let’s say, dire beauty emergencies and unable to fix them. Here are a couple of beauty shortcuts you could easily apply to your everyday life, and hopefully make slightly easier (or more beautiful) without spending a million bucks.

Top-10-Awesome-Beauty-Hacks-You-Need-To-Know

Let’s start off with one the most annoying beauty problems to plague women since the invention of makeup. How do you keep your lipstick on for so long without it smudging? The secret is to use some tissue with a little translucent powder on it to blot your lipstick after applying it. Not only will it keep lasting longer, it will give a nice matte finish. Lucky for you, matte lips are in!

Speaking of powder, did you know you could use baby powder to make your eyelashes thicker and longer? After applying a first mascara coat, use a cotton swab or a clean mascara brush to apply a little baby powder on your lashes, and then apply your second coat of mascara. And voilà! Vavavoom lashes for you!

You can also use baby powder as a deodorant substitution (only in case you run out at home) or as dry shampoo substitution since baby powder takes out the greasiness from your hair. This is a useful trick for when you’re in a hurry and do not have time to jump in the shower to wash your hair!

Have thin lips and want them to look fuller and more luscious? The trick is to know how to apply lip liner and to properly create “cupid’s bow shape”. To do so, mark your lips with an X at the center of your top lip, line the corners, and then join them together. Fill them in before applying your lipstick.

Remember when glitter polish was the rave? You probably remember how hard it is to get that nail polish off. Here’s a weird but very effective way to ease your glittery life, right before applying the glitter polish coat, put a little liquid Elmers glue. It sounds completely whack, but it dries on clear and with the glitter on top, no one will be the wiser. Plus it’s really fun (and safe) to peel glue off your nails.

Carl Eric Jabouin on his Style, Inspiration and being Haiti’s Summer “IT” Guy

This summer, we decided to be a little different in picking our “IT” person. We tend to look at women when they walk in a room, and we’re all about celebrating female form. This time however, we met a unique Haitian we felt earned this spot. With his Basquiat-esque looks, and Pharell swag meet Carl Eric Jabouin… Summer’s IT guy!

He is a man of few words, armed with a sharp tongue, and quirky opinions. Carl Eric is a breath of fresh air indeed.

photo 4When did you become a fan of fashion?

I’ve always been a fan of fashion, I just never knew it. When I was younger I even used to dress my dad every morning telling what I liked and what didn’t.

What draws you to fashion?

I just love looking good. It gives me confidence.

 What is your favorite item of clothing?

I’m a shoe guy.

Do you follow trends or do you prefer to have a timeless style?

I like to think I have my own style doesn’t matter if it’s the trend or not. If I like it, I will wear it no matter what people think about it.

Who is your favorite designer?

I don’t have one. Like I said, I don’t follow trends.photo 2

Who is your biggest fashion influence?

I look up to Pharrell Williams and Will-I-Am. Clean cuts, bold colors and effortless.

What is your favorite girl’s clothing item?

I can’t say I have a favorite women’s apparel favorite. But I do love a girl who embraces different styles and changes her look up often. I like women with bold fuchsia hair, it’s sexy and shows confidence.

How do you decide what to wear?

On the spot. It’s easier that way.

 

Meeting this humble young man with a flare for fashion was a pleasure. His style reflects his unapologetic uniqueness. A quiet and cool confidence is always in. Whether roaming the streets of Montreal or spotted in Haiti, look out for this one!
