Warming Trend: Desert Hues are the New Nude

The nude makeup palette is still going strong but it is evolving and changing in line with the season.  Spring and summer’s new nude is inspired by the desert’s warm, deep sunsets, terra-cotta earth, and golden tones.  

Contour takes a back seat to well-blended bronzers and highlighters.  Start with self tanner if your complexion is pale. (Note: you need to use self tanner all over your neck, décolletage,  and shoulders so you don’t look like you are wearing a mask.)  Follow up with a bronzer that gives a warm flush and apply it right into the hairline.  

Use a highlighter on your temples, along the top outer edges of your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, the center of your chin, and a tiny bit in your cupid’s bow of you upper lip.  You don’t want to look like you are trying to glow in the dark, so start with a light touch of highlighter and build it up gradually. 

Go for the desert equivalent of the smokey eye using warm sunset hues and coppery tones, well blended and applied on both the top and the bottom eyelids.  Use a dark matte crayon liner to define the eye, rather than a precise liquid liner.  Frame the eye with a well-groomed brow to really draw attention and complete this dramatic look.  

A deep nude lip works best for each version of the desert palette.  Whether you are wearing a monochrome look for day, or a stronger sunset look for evening choose a lip shade that is slightly darker than your own lip color in a semi-matte finish.  

These shades are the perfect warming trend for spring and summer beauty, and depending on how liberally you apply the products, these desert hues can take you from work to weekend.  Consider it the easy version of the nude palette: just keep blending and don’t be afraid to use your fingers to achieve the perfect sun-kissed “I just came back from vacation” look.

Miami Beach Spring Break - Supermodel Style

Miami Beach is one of Victoria’s Secret’s top shoot locations and not surprisingly a favorite destination of the VS angels who grab weekends on the beach, soaking up the sun and sand, between jobs.  It's truly a hotspot for models from around the world.

The weather, beach, laid-back life, food, sun, and stunning hotels make Miami Beach the hottest place to be for Spring Break, and a major modeling market for magazines, campaigns,  and advertising.  Many models start working in the Miami market before heading to NYC, Europe, and Asia.  Including me! 

March is peak season for spring breakers and if you are headed to the beach, take inspiration from the angels’ Instagram posts to find the perfect Miami Beach style.  Pack super sexy bikinis, airy whites, florals, chill rompers, jeans, and trendy sunglasses.  Keep it simple and fresh during the day, give your hair and skin a rest, and let the sun, sand and wind revive you. 

Nightlife in Miami Beach is off the charts, with amazing clubs and internationally renowned restaurants, so pack your most on-trend heels, outfits that show some skin - bare arms and shoulders in this year’s erogenous zones, your most fashion-forward outfits - color replaces black in Miami, and notice-me jewelry.  Nothing is ever really too over-the-top in Miami.  

Kick off your shoes and let winter drift away.  See you at the beach!

Supermodels on the Red Carpet: the Ultimate Awards Season Style and Beauty

Awards Season is here and models are making red carpet appearances in the most stunning gowns with gorgeous hair and makeup.  No strangers to glittering style and beauty, these glamazons know exactly how to show off dreamy creations to full effect for the paparazzi, choosing just the right poses and best angles for the high-intensity flashes. 

This year’s best red carpet looks feature low necklines, exposed shoulders and décolleté, and high slits with glimpses of toned,  spray-tanned legs.  Nude tones and metallics with shimmer and beading catch the light.  Goddess fashion at it’s best.

Beauty takes center stage this year with an emphasis on polished skin, groomed brows, and a nude to golden palette with all attention being drawn to the eyes with flawless eyeliner and a warm, neutral lip.  Contour is key but without the overly sculpted look of years past.  Hair is sleek and keeps the focus on the eyes without distracting attention.  A wide open forehead is a classic beauty look that draws the face upwards in a natural face lift.  

Follow the lead of these on-trend women for your own formal occasions, and study their red carpet power poses for your own star turn moment to create images you will love for years to come.
