Jewelry Wishlist-How to Style Jewelry

Hello everyone! So I have some exciting news for you all. Banggood is celebrating their 10th Anniversary and they are going to have a 48 hour crazy sale with some amazing offers for you! That is why I collaborated with them to create a style guide/ wishlist on jewelry. To learn more about the crazy hours sale, get more details here.

Did you know that there are two important factors you should bear in mind when you buy and wear jewelry? These factors are:

Starting with face shape;

Oval Shaped Face

Women with an oval shaped face can usually wear all types of earrings and necklaces. However, to get the most dazzling effect, try these:

Earrings: Dangle earrings (not too long), preferably angular shaped. Hoops are a great choice for an oval face. This shape of face can also pull off earrings that are wider in design.

Avoid: Earrings that are overly long because this will add more length to the oval face.

jewelry

Necklaces: They can be either long or short (if you have a long neck, then chose a shorter necklace.) Choose pieces that are sized similar to your overall build. If you are a plus size lady, you will be able to pull off heavier pieces, versus a petite person who will look better with simple pieces.

jewelry

jewelry

Pear/Triangular Shaped Face

Think, long and layered. The length of the jewelry you wear will elongate your face. These are the things that you need to remember when selecting jewelry. This helps to draw attention away from a very strong jaw line.

Earrings: Try elongated shapes or angular shapes. The narrowest part of the earring must be next to the jaw line.  Heart shapes or teardrops that are wider at the top and end at the level of the cheekbones or above are good choices as they add width. Small stud or button styles that have long narrow dangling components  help create more length.

jewelry

jewelry

jewelry

Necklaces: Look for necklaces that elongate your face, typically necklaces that extend below the neckline (28″ to 32″). Adding pendants and mixing a variety of chains and necklace lengths. The extra adornments will help bring more balance to a strong-jawed face. Short necklaces with gentle curves soften a strong jaw line. Selecting something with a gentle curve under the jaw can lengthen the look of the face. Large focal components on necklaces that form a “V” can draw attention below the neck and give the appearance of a longer face. Pendants or necklaces with focal components such as swirls can counter the strong angular characteristics of the jaw, softening the look of the face.

jewelry

jewelry

Heart/ Inverted Triangle Shaped Face

Heart/Inverted triangle shaped faces are the opposite pears, with a strong forehead and a narrow, defined chin. You want to de-emphasize the forehead and soften the sharpness of your chin.

Earrings: Dangle or drop earrings help to lengthen the face. Cluster or other smallish earrings look stylish without adding extra length or slimming a face that’s already narrow.  Try to have the widest part of the earring closest to the chin. Your jewelry needs to add width at the level of the chin, so use horizontal lines of hoops, teardrops, curves, triangles and other dangling space-filling designs.

Avoid: Small stud or button type earrings and styles that are very narrow and long.

jewelry

Necklaces: Chokers help contrast and soften the sharp angle of the chin. Choker or short length necklaces work best for this facial type, because they create more bulk near the narrow area of the face enhancing its balance. Try wearing large gems/beads. The extra bulk of the gems/beads help fill out the face.  Stacked necklaces, or multiple strand styles, help to balance out  the face.  You could also try a bold pendant that hangs closely under the chin.

jewelry

jewelry

Square Shaped Face

Defined, angular cheeks and a strong jaw line and forehead are typical of square face shapes.

Earrings: Try elongated shapes such as ovals, or angular shapes such as rectangles. Square shaped faces look particularly good in teardrop earrings. Small earrings are a good choice. Large oval hoops, long drop earrings and narrow chandelier earrings are also great options for you.

Avoid: Wide chandelier styles are also not a good choice.

jewelry

jewelry

Necklaces: Look for necklaces that elongate your face, typically necklaces that extend below the neckline (28″ to 32″). Adding pendants and mixing a variety of chains and necklace lengths. Larger focal components on necklaces form a “U”, drawing the attention below the neck line. Look for a necklace with a pendant or other focal component or components with curves or swirls to balance the strong angular features of the jaw.

Avoid: Choker type necklaces that are overly chunky as these may shorten the look of the neck and make it appear wider.

jewelry

Rectangular and Oblong Shaped Face

This shape is a square, but with a more angular, smaller chin and narrower forehead.

Earrings: Choose short or round earrings to contrast the longer face shape. Large hoop earrings are the best choice. Larger, bold style earrings are great for you. Earrings with lots of movement and drama are perfect. Select shapes like large circles, curves, crescents or other wide designs that will complement your face shape.

jewelry

jewelry

Necklaces: Chokers are great especially if you have a long neck. Shorter necklace lengths are typically a good choice. Long necklaces work too. Just make sure that they are  bulky, and wrapped three times to give it depth. Short necklaces will help reduce the long look of these two face shapes and help to balance the face. The shorter necklaces will break up the vertical line that occurs with oblong and rectangular faces. Large beads at the base of the neck help shorten the look of the face. Necklaces with heavy or bold focal components are another good option for you if your face is oblong or rectangular in shape.

jewelry

jewelry

Round Shaped Face

Round faces are rarely true circles, but their fuller cheeks and strong forehead create the illusion of roundness.  You need to try an make the face appear more oval .

Earrings: Try elongated shapes such as ovals, or angular shapes such as rectangles. Long, vertical styles of earrings like dangles, drops or narrow chandelier types. A round face can be flattered with vertically angular designs. Styles that create a strong vertical line will look wonderful on a round face.

 jewelry

Necklaces: Look for necklaces that elongate your face, typically necklaces that extend below the neckline (28″ to 32″). Chunky collar length necklaces help. Wear longer necklaces that balance the look of the face.  Larger focal components which create a “V” and draw the eye below the neckline create a visually longer line.

Avoid: Shorter necklaces like chokers will only shorten the appearance a round face and could make the neck appear wider than it is.

jewelry

 Diamond Shaped Face

Earrings: dangle or drop earrings help to lengthen the face. Dangling earrings with teardrops, pear shapes or triangle shaped drops work well.

 jewelry

Necklaces: chokers help contrast and soften the sharp angle of the chin.  Chokers emphasize a long neck while a long  necklace lengthens the wearer’s torso. Low hanging necklaces with drops or pendants are good too.

jewelry

With regard to skin tone; Your undertone determines which colors look best on you. There are three basic undertones:

  • Warm
  • Cool
  • Neutral: You could be neutral pulling warm or neutral pulling cool.

Based on your undertone, try these tips:

Metals:

  • Cool skin tones  and neutral pulling cool: Favor metals such as silver, platinum, and white gold.
  • Warm skin tones and neutral pulling warm: Favor metals such as gold, pewter, brass, and copper.

Complementary Colors:

  • Cool skin tones and neutral pulling cool: Favor stones such as white pearls and diamonds. Stone color should focus on jewel tones such as pinks, purples, blues, reds, and magenta.
  • Warm skin tones and neutral pulling warm: Favor stones such as coral or golden toned pearls. Stone color should focus on more earthy tones such as browns, oranges, greens, yellows, peaches, corals, and also turquoises.

 

Jewelry Preservation Tips

These days a lot of girls prefer to wear fashion jewelry. You get these in beautiful and varied designs and at cheaper rates as opposed to gold, silver and other precious metals. The only problem is that, they will only last long if  they are taken good care of.

Try these techniques to preserve your jewelry:

1) Give it a thin coating of clear nail polish. This will prevent corrosion of the metal and give the metal an extra shine.

2) Use separate containers or ziplock bags for storage.

3) Every once in a while, lightly dust with talcum powder. This will get rid of any excess moisture.

4) Use gentle materials for cleaning . You could even use the cloth that they provide for cleaning  spectacles.

5) Avoid using cleaning agents that contain these ingredients:

  • vinegar
  • ammonia
  • acids
  • alcohol

6) Make sure to store them in a dry and cool place. They may collect dust easily so always dust them.

These are some simple but effective ways of preserving your jewelry. If you want to see more beautiful jewelry and other products from Banggood, go here.

Fitting a strapless dress

Since this dress is strapless, it needs to fit you really well. Do not try to go a size small or a size large. if the dress is small, you will appear to spill out of it. On the other hand if the dress is too large, it will not stay in place.

When selecting your dress, keep these tips in mind:

  • Be sure to check your measurements. Make sure to get it tightened in places where it may be loose or loosen it in places where it feels tight.
  • Always try on the dress in a fitting room and stretch up, bend over, twist, sit down, stand up and walk around the changing room with the dress on just to make sure the dress is really comfortable. If you will be dancing in the dress, do a mini dress rehearsal.
  • Examine the back and sides of the dress for unsightly bulges
  • Select a dress that fits your bust line well. The top of the strapless evening dress should be tight and form-fitting but not so snug that you feel like you are bursting out. The waist should be trim, but the bottom should be a bit looser to balance a tighter top.
  • It is recommended that you wear the same bra you plan to wear with the dress. 
  • The dress needs to stay up, not be too restrictive, offer a flattering silhouette without digging into the body, and feel comfortable as well as breathable.
  • If you are buying a long strapless evening gown, be sure to wear the right shoes to get an idea of the correct dress length that is required.

 Structure of the strapless dress

One of the most important aspects of finding that perfectly-fitted strapless dress is to ensure the dress has structure. A strapless dress should  keeps its shape even when hung in the wardrobe. Without structure, a strapless dress does not have any support to keep gravity from pulling it to the ground. This is why boning and waist support are important.

Boning

The bodice of the dress should have sufficient boning. Dress boning is a rigid strip of plastic that is flexible and supports your upper body shape. Boning in a strapless dress runs vertically from the waist to the top of the dress. The boning should support the front, back, and sides of the dress. Boning not only keeps the dress up, it also allows the dress to be shaped in a flattering way, and does not rely on a tight fit to keep it in place. A good quality strapless dress should have sufficient boning that does not dig into your waist or under your arm.

Waist Support

 Waist support can be built into the dress and is an extension of the boning that has been added to the dress. It can even be added as an accessory. A wide belt is a great way to provide support to a poorly-made strapless dress.

 Quality

strapless dress

If you buy a bad quality strapless dress, your dress may  constantly slip or the color fades very soon. However, great quality dresses do not always have to be expensive. You can get cheap dressess which are also good quality. Keep these points in mind when shopping for your dress:

  • When looking for that perfect strapless dress, be sure to check out how well the dress is made, both on the inside and on the outside.
  •  The type of lining can significantly affect how the dress sits when worn. Lining needs to be breathable, comfortable, and sit smoothly against the body.
  •  Padding used around the tips of the boning must be soft on your skin, but sturdy enough to maintain it’s shape no matter what.
  • Some dresses also feature thin rubberized strips built into the lining at the top of the dress. These little strips sit against the bare skin and just add that extra support to the dress.

Choose the Right Bra

This is another major reason why most women do not like strapless dresses. What kind of bra do you wear?!

Okay, for those of you who are already familiar with strapless bras, the answer is pretty obvious. However, some strapless bras do not stay in place. Especially if you are out for a long time and begin to sweat, your bra may start slipping.

There are a few ways to fix this problem.

  • Select a strapless bra with silicone lining. This will stick to your skin and ensure that the bra stays in place.
  • Try to match the bra color with your dress color. If your dress is dark, wear a dark bra, if your dress is light ,wear a light colored bra.
  •  Look for a long-line strapless bra. This is a bra that extends down to the waist and provides more structure to prevent slippage. It can also help to contour your midriff for a better fit.
  • Choose a strapless bra that has supportive underwire and push-up features.
  •  A convertible bra will work well under a strapless evening dress as well and will give you adequate support.
  •  You may also want to wear shapewear under it that slims and smooths your stomach, backside, hips and thighs.
  • For added support, you may want to pin the bra to the inside of your dress to keep it in place. You may even want to invest in some double sided tape, which will hold your bra and dress in place. These can be found in sewing kits or craft stores.

Some of you may even feel a bra is not needed since the dress already has so much padding and structure. Do not wear this dress without a bra! Many clothing designers and manufacturers recommend wearing a bra with a strapless dress, no matter how much structure or boning the dress may already have.

Accessories

Simple accessories are best with a strapless dress. Your most important accessory will be a necklace since your neck will be prominently displayed. Choose something elegant and tasteful.

You can choose an elegant single-strand pearl choker or a dramatic bib necklace, while enamel stones in bold colors like tangerine, magenta or turquoise works well for a cocktail party or dinner date. Even a simple pedant necklace can work well.

 You can even skip the necklace and wear big, bold earrings instead. Large hoops or striking chandelier earrings can help add some sparkle to a strapless dress.

Shoes

Strapless dresses generally look best with heels. Slingbacks are an excellent choice to accentuate a strapless dress. You can even wear fancy heels with a short strapless dress for a glamorous look, and a long strapless dress benefits from gladiator sandals or lower heels.

 Transform Your Dress for Day Wear

You can get double duty out of your strapless dress by modifying it for day wear. Here’s how:

  • Simply pull a pretty knit top or a fitted jacket over your knee length dress to turn it into fashionable day wear.
  • Experiment with wraps you have in your closet to see what looks best with your particular dress. By adding a wrap, you can even wear a strapless dress to the office.
  • A denim jacket on top of your strapless dress will give you a casual look.
  • Throw on a scarf for a day out with your friends.
  • Cardigans are a great option too.
  • Pair a mini to just above the knee strapless dress with leggings.

Additional Pointers

  • Find one in an hourglass shape and avoid anything that looks too baggy or square.
  • A short strapless dress that hits above the knee is flattering on petite women, but long strapless dresses are flattering on many women. These can make you look glamorous and tall.
  • If you have a large chest, choose a dress with stretchy, durable fabric and consider a strapless dress with a ruffle or other coverage on the neckline so you don’t reveal too much.

That is everything you need to know about strapless dresses. See more beautiful cheap dresses here.

Accessorize with a silver wrist cuff and black statement necklace.

t-shirt

Pair it with a tiger print button down shirt for a fierce look. Bonus points for leaving the tiger print shirt unbuttoned. A statement necklace adds just right amount of bling.

Hello everyone!

I’m back with yet another clothing review sponsored by Sammy dress .

Name of top as mentioned at Sammydress:

Stylish Plunging Neck Short Sleeve Lace T-Shirt For Women

Cost:$ 9.62

(They take care of the shipping, so I did not have to pay the shipping charges. However they have given detailed info about shipping charges here.)

First impressions:
This top is made with a blend of cotton and polyester, so it is flexible and comfortable to wear. I love the over-all effect that the top has. Since I chose the red version of this top, it gives a feminine look.

This lovely lace top is extremely versatile and can be combined with various colors and textures.

Makeup:

A red top calls for red lips, who can resist rosy red lips? I used shimmery bronze eye shadow with thin liquid liner to keep the look subtle and maintain focus on the lips.

Vin’s verdict:

This top gets an ‘A’ from me for comfort,aesthetic appeal and versatility 🙂

Bonus styling tips!

1) Lace pencil skirt
Paired with a simple formal top and sophisticated jewelry. It’s a smart, stylish option .
2) Keep it casual
A fancy lace top is perfect for a fun night out, and a casual tee and sneakers with a lacy a-line skirt turns it into a weekend outfit.
3) Trendy colors

Try sweet sorbet shades. A lacy top in a pretty pastel color is on-trend and versatile.

4)Layer different textures

Silky, lace-trimmed shorts paired with a chambray shirt and a quirky sweater creates a cozy and interesting outfit.

5) Metallic

 Gilded lace. It has a rocker vibe with a slightly baroque edge. Wear it in metallic shades and you are sure to turn heads.

6) Tropical
Crocheted style brings a touch of bohemian flair to any outfit. They’re a little more sophisticated and girly than frayed cutoffs, but they still embody easy summer style.

7) When layering on , stick to neutrals—they’re very versatile.

8) Pair lacy items with structured pieces like  tailored trousers, to tone down their sweet and girly nature.
9) Think Thick
Instead of super-delicate, flimsy lace, try looking for pieces that weave ribbons and thicker threads into lacy-like patterns.
10) The New Collar
For a lace collar that will never wilt, opt for a metal necklace that’s been laser-cut to mimic lace.
11) No Sweat
Here’s a way to wear your sweats outdoors without feeling sloppy. They come in all shapes and forms, including cheeky, sheer panels.
12) Peek-a-Boo
Whether it comes sewn into the garment or you have to wear something else underneath, a slip of lace peeking out of anything is a styling trick that’s subtle but creates an impact.

Seven Days of Women’s Tops Style Guide

Women’s tops

A guest post written by StalkBuyLove.com

The last time when I wrote about the trend of girls tops, I related them to our age groups where women change their dressing styles as they grow. But today I realize that a woman in her complete journey never thinks about changing her style of tops for women in advance , meaning she never thinks about what her style is going to adopt when she reaches 30, 40 or 50 or more. Rather, she is more concerned about what to wear today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow… Right? Women never want to age, and maybe this is one of the reasons she never thinks about changing her dressing style when she gets old. She is more in her present and always looks for the trendiest styles in vogue which she can adopt today.

I have got a number of female friends who are either younger to me or older to in the same age group. The younger ones are either studying or have just joined new workplaces, and those who are in the same age group or elder to me are either working in the corporate sectors or are homemakers. No matter what their profession is, they all are deeply involved with the latest vogue and market trends. They want to look the best at their fields and for that superb look, they need the best girls tops for flawless looks.

Tops for women gain most of the attention and recognition while women get dressed up for school, college, workplace or to the markets. Nobody pays attention to the pair of denim or trousers unless it is too short to be a little revealing as a skirt, or a pair of shorts. And this styling various girls tops in different styles consumes her most of the time. From shopping the trendiest tops for women to styling them early morning to college or work is a big deal for her. She spends hours searching for the latest girls tops which were walked on the ramps and then she further categorize them suiting her needs to various occasions and finally she selects her favorite online shopping sites to get the same. Sometimes, she does get what she wants, but many times she has to compromise with the replicas or with the un-branded girls tops. And then comes her next challenge to style them in a voguish and gracious way so that even her compromise wins her the title of the best-styled outfit among her friends.

She needs a unique style every day, which has no comparison with her previous day’s outfits. Her daily needs get higher and higher in her alluring styles and she manages to do her best with those demands and desires.

THE 7 DAYS OF THE WEEK

A woman always wishes to look modish yet elegant whenever she steps out of her home. From her girls tops to her bottoms, from her makeup to her jewellery, from her shoes to her handbags all need to complement each other for her sensual looks. She knows very well the behavior of men in the society and the J factor of women and is well aware that she will be spotted by many of them on her way and in the workplace too. She cannot afford to miss any of them and brings out the best of her all seven days of the week.

DAY 1: – The very first day of her schedule has to be the most impressive look as it is going to be the start of her energetic week. After a long rest of the weekend, she is all set to apply her makeup on and adorn her high heels back. This day she feels a bit fresh and young enough to get dressed in her desirable girls top with a denim skirt.

womes-top

A fresh look can be achieved in the best of floral tops. So could be the style used with a high-waist denim skirt and floral print Georgette frill top. The top can be tucked into the skirt for a finished look. The cold shoulder style top with spaghetti straps and frills at the shoulder would give you the finest looks for the very first day. As the model has teamed it up with neutral peep toes and peach sling round bag, she has given it an elegant look for any event or occasion. The top can even be styled with a pair of denim or shorts with sneakers and backpacks for a funky look.

DAY 2:- The next day of her week again demands something better than what she adorned yesterday. After getting a bit of recognition the day before, the expectations for today rises for not only her but also for the viewers. The motivational words encourage her to choose the next best tops for women online where her search ends up at a classic shirt.

womens-top

This day she uses a business casual shirt for her next best outfit. She can team it up either with shorts for a casual look or with formal trousers as an office wear. The shirt which the model is portraying has got three-fourth sleeves and collars to cover her neckline. The buttoned-down shirt is graceful in its shade of navy which can be teamed up any neutral bottom, the same way as the model has shown. Tucked in or not is completely a style statement which a woman chooses to opt for and can even team her ensemble with heels or flat bellies for a refined look.

DAY 3:- The day 3 look gets a bit unique distinctive in her own style. She neither chooses a floral print or a solid hue for the compliments. She goes for abstract prints in her girls tops to make it a better day than the gone days. Today she needs her something chirpy and trendy for the ensemble which can make her a versatile person who is able to carry elegant to sober looks in a stylish way.

womens-top

The abstract art has become quite popular recently since it has been used by designers for many girls tops, dresses, and hand-loom. The people who love modern art or are no longer interested in prints and basic patterns love these styles and dress them in their own way. Tunics are great for summers as they give an opportunity to either pair them with leggings, jeggings or jeans. Even they can be worn on their own when at home without bottoms. The above abstract styled tunic could be teamed up with leggings or denim of your choice and could be the OOTD for day 3.

DAY 4:- The next day cannot go wrong with her looks, she has managed to look effortlessly chic all three days, so this day too she has to keep up with her style and with others expectations. She has been going covered for all past three days and now feels to go for a bit exposure which would not make her look hotter but also a dapper.

Peplum tops are the ones which she can adorn for the fourth day of her week. These are trendy and classy in style, looks, and shape. The flared look at the waist distinguish them from all other tops for women and look effortlessly voguish and modern. The Gusto black crepe Peplum top portrayed by the model is a revealing girls top which has a cut-out at the front and keyhole at the back. A few women may not feel comfortable in showing the cleavage, but the ones who are, there is nothing stopping them to grabbing this beautiful piece and styling it with their best skirt or shorts for a graceful look.

DAY 5:- It has been a long week for her and she is styling herself up every day with best girls tops to keep her looks chic and stylish. Today, being the last working day, she has got mixed feelings of being casual and formal, but still the formal dressing wins over and she chooses a style which is not only unique than the previous days but also comfortable to her.

Bodysuits are the latest tops for women, which are highly stylish as well as comfortable outfits to a woman that she can en-robe with anything she likes, from denim to trousers, from shorts to skirts. The easy to wear Beth navy cotton bodysuit can be your look for the day. The lace tie-up at the front sets it apart from other bodysuits and the hue makes it a perfect piece for combination with neutral to dark shades of bottoms. A skater skirt or a jogger, a formal pant to a midi skirt all would match well with this bodysuit to an office or college and would keep you at ease all day long.

DAY 6:- The last second day of the week is a bit comfortable and relaxing for her as she has only one more for the week. This day she gets an opportunity to get casual and come into the coolest of girls tops and get a bit loosened up for the day. From high heels to leather handbags, she gets into flats, flip flops and sneakers for a daily look.

I just loved the style, she used a basic tee with a printed pant in the baby pink shade. The butterfly pattern on the tee and the pink tone of the ladies pant have given her a girly look which seems not only casual but also comfy and trendy. A Saturday cannot be best dressed than this where a sense of formal, as well as casual look, is simultaneously portrayed in the best of the girls tops.

DAY 7:- The last day of the week, today she is free to wear anything she feels like or can even spend her entire day in her most comfortable nightwear for the entire day with no makeup on and roaming all over the home bare footed. She hardly cares for anyone if anyone is keeping an eye on her or not, she follows her heart and gets dressed in best of the tops for women in an utter chic way.

The image itself clears out what a woman feels on the last day of the week. She wants to be clothed in her  skirt and a casual  crop top which can offer her an easy and cool look throughout the day. The basic combination makes her stylish and casual altogether and gives her the feeling of a Sunday.

With the last day of the weekend, her battle to get dressed in  tops for women ends but brings her a new dawn with a new week when she styles up all again with much better styles and trends for the coming week.

Firmoo Makeup Tricks for Girls With Glasses

Wearing glasses? Here’s some makeup tricks for you!

You will be surprised to know that many girls who wear glasses don’t use eye makeup.

After all your pretty eyes are hidden behind those glasses, right? So why bother?

Well Vin is here to tell you, that this is far from true. Glasses are not a hindrance, they are an accessory and they are meant to enhance your appearance. Instead of skipping the eye makeup all together, here are some pointers to make your eyes sparkle.

In collaboration with Firmoo, we are going to transform your daily makeup routine. Before we begin, let’s learn a little more about Firmoo.

In this post I have created a look for caramel skinned girls, but these looks will suit any skin tone.

Sunshine Gal:

For this day look, we are going to keep it natural while enhancing the beauty of the facial features.

Once you have prepped your face with moisturizer, foundation, concealer and all of those wonderful things, you can proceed with the following steps:

Eyes

  1. Begin with a warm brown base. Cover the entire upper lid with this shade.
  2. Now go over the inner corner  of the eye with a lighter shade of brown, this will help to highlight the inner corner of your eye and make it look brighter.
  3. Now use a liquid or gel liner to line your upper lid. Extend the line with a sweeping motion to make your eyes appear larger.
  4. Add a swipe of mascara if you like. Do not be afraid of mascara, it will not smudge if you let it dry a bit first. A hairdryer can speed up the process.

 

Vin’s Pro Tips:

  1. If your eyes appear smaller when you wear glasses, line your entire eye.
  2. If your eyes look larger when you wear glasses, just line the outer edges of your eyes. This will make your eyes look more natural.

Lips

  1. Accentuate your lips with a natural rosy pink color.
  2. Line your lips with a red lip liner to make the color pop.
  3. Blend well at the edges to avoid harsh lines.

 

Evening Star

Now we are going to transform the day look above, to a more colorful and vibrant evening look.

Eyes

  1. Wipe away the warm brown shadow that you had on your upper lid.
  2. Now replace it with a refreshing green shadow.(Blue, purple and any other bright color will do.)
  3. Thicken the eyeliner to get a more dramatic effect.
  4. You could add a hint of glitter if you want a bolder look.
  5. If you want to take this look one step further, consider applying false lashes to dramatize your eye makeup.

 

Vin’s Pro Tips:

False lashes can be ridiculously difficult to apply if you are a spectacle wearer. You may even consider it a waste of all the effort and scraped it out from your make up routine. However, here are two handy tips to make it easier for you:

  1. If you need to wear your glasses whilst applying the glue to your lashes, perch them on the end of your nose. This way you can easily look down through them when applying your adhesive and they are still out of your way when applying the lashes.
  2. If you have chosen lashes that are a little too long and they are hitting your lenses, gently curl the lashes to naturally help them move back from your glasses.

Lips

  1. You can opt for a deep shade of pink or red to complete the look.
  2. If you have not applied glitter on your eyelids, you could go for a glossy lip.
Our experience with Firmoo and why we love it!

I personally do not require glasses, but my sister does. I got her to try them out for a day and tell me how she felt about these glasses.

The pros:

  1. The frame she chose is made entirely of plastic, so it is light weight and she does not have to worry about it breaking if it falls. Firmoo also provides frames made from metal alloy, memory metal and titanium, so you can choose your frames according to your preference.
  2. The lens she chose is the ‘Standard index 1.5 lens’. This is a single vision lens. However, Firmoo offers a wide variety of lenses such as super flex lenses, light lenses, flex lenses and too many more to list down here.
  3. The frame that she chose does not use a spring mechanism, which she likes because otherwise the frames pinch her skin by mistake.
  4. The design of this frame does not leave marks on her nose, unlike some other designs that she has used in the past.
  5. They have an easy data collection method where you can either enter your prescription information manually or simply scan it.
  6. You can use the virtual trial feature to see if a set of frames will look good on you or not.
  7. You have a variety of payment options, so that you can easily make a transaction.
  8. The frames are practically customized for the individual, because you can select your preferred lens and frame.

The cons:

The only trouble we had was that we had to settle for regular lenses rather than the prescription ones because my sister’s pd number was too small.

Other than this we had no trouble at all.

Overall The experience with Firmoo is worthy of a thumbs up. 🙂

So if you are a looking to purchase a new set of frames, we highly recommend Firmoo.

Okay, now let’s look at the type of clothing that suites each body type. Remember, dressing for your body type is the golden rule that every stylist swears by.

Hourglass Figure

 If you really want to turn heads and make a statement, here are the styles you should look for:

cocktail party dress
I like this mermaid style, belted dress, because it flaunts your curves effortlessly while maintaining a sophisticated air. This is perfect for black tie and formal occasions.

Silhouette

There are plenty of silhouettes to choose from. However for this body type, an A-line  silhouette can make you stand out from the crowd. You could choose a dress like the one below.

cocktail dress
This A-line dress is perfect for semi-formal occasions. Since it is knee length, you can pull it off for formal occasions too. Just throw on a wrap or stole.

Sleeve Length

Strapless and Spaghetti straps are great for your body type as they draw attention to your shapely arms. Basically, your best choice is anything without sleeves. If you have prominent collar bones, strapless is definitely the choice for you.

This strapless dress is perfect for semi-formal occasions as it is above knee length. It is fun and elegance all rolled into one dress.

Pear Figure

This body type is bottom heavy, so try to draw attention upwards. The styles that will help you do this are:

  • Strapless dresses
  • A-line dresses
  • Off-the-shoulder necklines
cocktail party dress
I like this sleeveless, A-line dress because it shows off your arms at the top and the multiple ruffles at the bottom help to de-emphasise  large hips.

Silhouette

When selecting a dress, you need to pick one which can alter your silhouette and create the illusion of the ‘perfect figure.’ This is one of the tricks that top stylists use. Merely selecting the right dress can give you the desired effect. The styles you should wear are:

  • A-line
  • Empire
  • Surplus bodice

This strapless, A-line number instantly makes a pear body type look perfect!

Sleeves:

I would suggest this gorgeous cap sleeve, flapper style dress to any gal with an apple body type. It is perfect!

  • Cap sleeve
  • Short sleeve

Rectangle figure

The positive side is that you can carry off a dress with multiple layers. At the same time you can rock a dress which shows plenty of skin and not look immodest. However, you do have minimal definition, so you need to try and create curves. The best dresses to do that are:

  • Sheath dresses
  • A-line dresses

This Sheath dress helps to emphasize your slim waist and create curves.

So you know how to dress for your body type, but you have across a new challenge, your height. There are certain dresses that work best for women of varying heights. Let’s take a closer look at these dresses.

You need to create a long uninterrupted line. This way you create the illusion of extra inches and an overall tall figure. The dresses that will help you do this are:

Jord Wooden Watches Review

Hello Everyone! I want to share a beautiful, yet useful accessory with you today. I’m talking about a gorgeous wooden watch by Jord.

So here’s my Jord Wooden Watches review!

First, a little info about the sponsor:

What is Jord?

Jord was derived from our desire for a timepiece that modeled our modern lifestyle. Sustainable, efficient, simple, and influenced by experiential living. Jord owners don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. We believe our watches tell more than time.

What makes Jord Special?

Our style is guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component of our watches, it is the main feature. The intricacy and multiplicity of the woods we utilize in our designs insure that each watch is as distinctive as the owner.

Now, back to the review.

I’m reviewing a lovely piece from the Ely Series. It is crafted from pure maple wood.

Features:

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2015 w/Date Display)
  • Case Width: 37mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 45mm
  • Band Length: 200mm
  • Band Thickness: 21mm
  • Splash Proof
  • Price: $129 (excluding shipping charges.)

Extension pieces for the wrist band.

When I was first introduced to Jord watches, I was attracted to the antique vibe of the watch. The design was modern,yet it had an antique vibe to it. I loved it!

Vin’s Observations:

Pros

  • This watch is versatile and can be paired with any outfit, for any occasion. I styled it for a cocktail party look,office wear and casual wear.
  • The watch fits snugly on the wrist and if you need to extend it, the package comes with extra pieces for the wrist band.you can request additional pieces for the wristband if necessary.
  • The time and date can be easily configured using the dial to the side of the watch.
  • The wrist band consists of a series of wooden pieces linked together. Initially I was concerned that the wrist band may end up pinching the skin. However, this was not the case. The wrist band has been designed with the wearer’s comfort in mind. Thumbs up to team Jord!
  • The clock face has clearly defined markings and is easy to read.
  • Since it is crafted from wood, the watch is more eco-friendly (not entirely though) than it’s counterparts.
  • The watch is sturdy and durable due to the high-quality wood used.

Cons

There really isn’t much to complain about with the watch, however here are some points I found, may be an issue for some:

  • The watch may be too chunky for some people’s preference, especially in the ladies collection.(This is purely subjective)
  • The dial to configure date and time takes a bit of getting used to. Detailed instructions can be found here.

Vin’s Verdict:

I like the fact that this watch is simple,stylish and cleverly designed. I would definitely recommend Jord watches to my family, friends and you my lovely readers. 🙂
