BeautyHigh StyleCaster Top Ten Bloogers

Last week I was featured on BeautyHigh: 10 Top Beauty Bloggers Share Their Best Beauty Tricks and Fall Must-Haves. In the article I share my fall musts. . . and a little career advice for breaking into the beauty biz. Be sure to read!

I posted the images from the shoot on Instagram and you all had asked about my outfit. So here goes . . . true to form — it’s a hi/lo mash-up!

Jacket: BGBG. I bought mine on sale in Delaware at a BCBG outlet for about $70, but you’ll find a similar style here. For size reference, my jacket is a small.

Tank Top: H&M. It’s just a basic cotton black tank top. Same as the one I wore here. For size reference, my tank is an extra small.

Sweater: Helmut Lang. I bought mine on sale at Barneys.com for a fraction of retail. It’s now sold out at Barneys, but you can find it here for $100. For size reference, my sweater is a small.

Leather Panel Leggings: Trouve via Nordstrom. These leggings are the gift that keep on giving! For size reference, my leggings are an extra-small. I prefer Small but XS was all they had, so. . . #KanyeShrug

Booties: Ron Donovan Alessandra in Navy. $995. Heel is approximately 5 inch stiletto with 1 inch external platform. Heel is python. Upper materials are calfskin and kid suede. For size reference, my booties are size 41…I’m normally a size 10.

Why do the min when you can take it to the max? That’s right, ladies — maxi skirts! Is this a trend we can believe in? Well I have to tell you, as a certified dress/skirt girl, the maxi is hella comfortable AND forgiving. Only me and my maxi know the multitude of sins hiding underneath. So will you be getting involved?

Fridays with Felicia: An intimate look behind the curtain as I share my favorite style/ beauty discoveries and ThisThatBeauty shenanigans from previous week.

********************

When Nine West Creative Director, Fred Allard, recently dished on key trends and must-have footwear styles for Fall 2010, naturally I was front and center with a pen and pad…taking copious notes for myThisThatBeauty readers!

It’s been years since I have worn Nine West, so last Saturday’s “Fall into Temptation” event at Nordstrom with Nine West and Elle magazine was the perfect opportunity to get reacquainted.

Fred alongside Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr, founders on the online fashion magazine WhoWhatWear.com, shared styling tips and their top shoe trends to watch!

Top trends for Fall 2010:

1) Utility – THINK: Military inspiration

Try the juxtaposition of hard and soft by mixing a rugged utility boot with feminine textures like lace, sequins, or fall florals.

I’m a bit of a “Utility” girl. Here I am wearing my fave pair…

2) Lacing – THINK: Menswear inspiration

The lace-up boots is a great way to add visual interest to a minimalist outfit.

3) Ladylike – THINK: 50’s secretary chic

Blame it on Mad Men. This style of shoe works well with high-waisted skirts and soft blouses. A skinny pant also flatters this shoe style.

If you haven’t checked in on Nine West in a while, consider this a gentle prodding. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Have a great weekend..xoxo

Heads up ladies! Nordstrom has once again partnered with MAC to offer an exclusive beauty buy. I love Nordstrom+MAC exclusives (especially the holiday sets!). Starting today, April 12 MAC Opulash Mascara is available via Nordstrom.

Here are the deets:

“New Opulash is the boldest, baddest gal in the joint. Cast a spell over the room with a sweep of MAC’s technologically advanced magic wand – a feat of beauty engineering that grabs the lash at the root to lift and holds on to exaggerate the lashes. The tapered tip makes inner corners sleeker to reach so never again worry about spider-web lash syndrome. Pump up your look with an extreme volumizing formula that curls and separates for thick, dark, dramatics lashes”.

Nordstrom+MAC beauty exclusives are legendary! Trust me, this is one exclusive beauty buy you won’t want to miss. MAC Opulash Mascara ($14) is available exclusively in Nordstrom stores (and Nordstrom.com) on April 22nd… However, if you’re dying to get in on the ground floor (and I know you are), you may pre-order today! Yes, TODAY!

    This winter we’ve talked a great deal about extreme facial dryness. I’ve covered various products and techniques available to help manage dry, flaky, stressed winter skin. If you’re still perfecting your winter skincare routine, ThisThatBeauty says, TRY THIS:

    Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment is a deeply hydrating moisture mask, ideal for dry dull skin in need of a boost of intense hydration. This super rich treatment comforts and brings vitality to the skin.  Enriched with Allantoin, Hyrda-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment plumps the skin to decrease the appearance of dry lines and wrinkles. 
    To prepare the mask, the pHase I liquid is mixed with the pHase II powder until a mousse-like consistency is achieved. The mask is then applied to the face in a thick layer. After 15-20 minutes of relaxation, the mask is removed and plump beautifully hydrated skin is revealed.
    Try Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment for your regular hydration needs…or right before a big night out for lovely glowing skin!

      Last Thursday started out at a bone chilling 12 degrees.  I repeat, 12! That’s a far cry from the embracing warmth of  summer. If the cold weather’s got you down and you’re yearning for the (safe) summer glow you haven’t seen in months, ThisThatBeauty says – TRY THIS!

      XEN-TAN® Premium Sunless Tanning (www.xen-tan.com) collection has created the latest breakthrough in gradual sunless tanning…TRANSFORM ($20.006oz.).  What makes this product so unique is that it begins tanning the skin with just one use. You can then deepen or maintain the color with daily application, as desired. 

      Obviously, Ms ThisThatBeauty’s brown chocolate-y self is not in need of XEN-TAN.
      See…very brown all year round :) —–>
                                                                                                                                       
      So I decided to enlist the support of a ThisThatBeauty Babe who’s looking for a little extra “glow”. Some of you may remember Christella R. from her review of Mixed Chicks.  Well here’s Christella again with her review of XEN-TAN.

      So Christella, how’d that work out for you? 

      I LOVE XEN-TAN!

      What do I love most about XEN-TAN? It doesn’t smell! I have tried many self-tanners in the past and they all leave a certain kind of smell on my skin, but not XEN-TAN! I was also surprised that the consistency was similar to body lotion as opposed to the gels I have had in the past…It glided on easily and dried on my skin within minutes. I used it all over my body and face. The tan came out even, natural looking (not orange!) and gave me a nice glow the first day. I applied XEN-TAN for the following 2 days and my tan was screaming the likeness of something I would get on a beach vacation by the third and fourth days. It was much needed as I tend to get very pale in the winter months. If you like Clarins, you’ll LOVE XEN-TAN!

      Dera Enochson, Tanning Expert and creator of the XenTan (www.xentan.com) self-tanning collection, shares her tips on creating the perfect, natural looking self-tan.

      Tips for tanning face and throat: 

      · Gently exfoliate the face by using a scrub or even a cleanser and a washcloth to slough off dead skin cells

      · Apply face tanner in a circular motion to skin on face and throat. 

      · For blending self tanner into your hairline, apply self tan lotion onto fingertips and use an up and down motion to feather into hairline

      · For instant bronzing or contorting the cheek bones, add a little extra tanner to cheek area for additional color

      Tips for body: 

      · Exfoliate first. Yes it makes your skin more smooth, but most importantly, it also makes your tan last longer. Self-tanners are absorbed by more drier skin, so make sure you focus on the extra dry areas such as knees and elbows

      · Apply to clean dry skin and always work from the bottom up, remembering to wash hands with soap and water in between applications. Use a circular motion to blend. If you are looking for instant color, self tan with XenTan‘s Deep Bronze

      · Don’t forget your back! Take a long flat folded strip of saran wrap. Dot some self tan lotion in the middle. While holding the ends, smooth over areas on your back that are out of reach

      · If you are afraid you applied too much self-tan to your wrists or back of hands, just rub a little moisturizer to those areas and blend with arms

      Tips for Swimming:

      · If you want your skin to be tanned and beach ready, apply self tan at least one hour before you leave (preferably the night before). Then apply your sun block as soon as you get to the beach. Give your self tan time to develop before you jump in the water

      · Self tan does tend to fade the longer you swim. Keep dips in the pool or ocean to fifteen minutes or less. Use your towel to gently pat dry instead of rubbing to preserve your tan. You can even apply a daily tanner after swimming to keep your self tan from fading

      Flabby buns or tummy?

      · To give the illusion of toned buns or abs or any troubled areas for that matter, add a little extra tanner to add depth where you feel you need it

      · To fake a fuller bust line, apply more self tanner in your cleavage area to give the illusion of depth

      Any Mistakes?

      · If you forget to wash your hands, the best thing to do is put a little dishwashing liquid is a bowl of warm water and soak hands for 20 minutes. Dry hands and use rubbing alcohol with cotton balls to see if you can get any excess off. Then use a scrub.

      · If you missed a spot, use a self tan with dark instant color like XenTan’s Dark Lotion to fill in. The instant color will disguise the spot and the tan will develop within three hours

      · Always remember to apply SPF every day – self tanning products do not take the place of sun protection

        Last Thursday started out at a bone chilling 12 degrees.  I repeat, 12! That’s a far cry from the embracing warmth of  summer. If the cold weather’s got you down and you’re yearning for the (safe) summer glow you haven’t seen in months, ThisThatBeauty says – TRY THIS!

        XEN-TAN® Premium Sunless Tanning (www.xen-tan.com) collection has created the latest breakthrough in gradual sunless tanning…TRANSFORM ($20.006oz.).  What makes this product so unique is that it begins tanning the skin with just one use. You can then deepen or maintain the color with daily application, as desired. 

        Obviously, Ms ThisThatBeauty’s brown chocolate-y self is not in need of XEN-TAN.
        See…very brown all year round :) —–>
                                                                                                                                         
        So I decided to enlist the support of a ThisThatBeauty Babe who’s looking for a little extra “glow”. Some of you may remember Christella R. from her review of Mixed Chicks.  Well here’s Christella again with her review of XEN-TAN.

        So Christella, how’d that work out for you? 

        I LOVE XEN-TAN!

        What do I love most about XEN-TAN? It doesn’t smell! I have tried many self-tanners in the past and they all leave a certain kind of smell on my skin, but not XEN-TAN!
