Mani of the Moment: Star Nail Art

clockwise from top left:@laurenelizabeth@ashbegash@oliveandjune, @flowidity108

Classy, not trashy, nail art can be hard to achieve, but the motif du jour has ladies literally reaching for the stars! Recently I attended a party for an awesome new jewelry brand I do PR for, Motif, and fell in love with a manicure rocked by fashion blogger Ashley of Blonde Collective, featuring star nail art. Manicures featuring asymmetric stars using neutral toned nail colors (think nudes, peaches, black, white and metallics) are the hottest nail art trend of the moment and a perfect way to bring a bit of whimsy to an otherwise subdued mani.

Accessory Alert! White Boots

white-boot-street-style
Mud puddles be damned, white boots are white hot! Impractical? Maybe. In style? Absolutely! Fashion editors, models and bloggers have been ruling the streets at New York Fashion Week fall/winter 2017 in white boots. From 90s inspired white Doc Martin's to high shine white patent leather booties, the styles are aplenty and the ways to wear them are even greater.

Fashion editors know that white sneakers aren't the only white shoe you need in your closet this season. At NYFW fall/winter 2017 Vogue staffers paired their white chelsea boots with a midi dresses and skirts and warm coats to meld winter and spring styles.

White heeled boots are the perfect transition boot when the weather starts to warm. Make like this fashionista and pair them with a red skirt and and black turtleneck for a head turning look.

Last but not least and my personal favorite way to wear white boots: Pair your white ankle boots with ripped jeans and a classic white shirt for a look that is equal parts chic and rock'n'roll.

Beauty Beat: MLBB (My Lips But Better) Lipstick

My Lips But Better Lipstick Makeup

Ever heard of the beauty term "MLBB"? Don't feel out of the loop,  I hadn't either, until I discovered Reddit's Makeup Addiction page the other night and found that one of the hottest topic is My Lips But Better "MLBB" lipstick. 

MLBB lipstick shades mimic your natural lip color but have a hint more color that helps enhance your features. This lip look is perfect for a smoky eye makeup look or for a quick swipe of color on a casual Sunday. From soft natural nudes and peaches to dusty mauve's and  light bitten berries, My Lips But Better shades can range for whatever your in the mood for and formulas come in creamy glosses, matte lipsticks and sheer tints. The only important factor is that your MLBB lipstick gives you the look of natural beauty.   

To be up front, I'm fair skinned and vary in hair color from blonde to dark blonde, so my range of research concentrates on My Lips But Better lipstick shades for fair skin. Some of the hottest on the web are from NARS and Urban Decay, and my personal go-to MLBB is Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in 07. Below is a list of some of the most beloved natural looking MLBB lipstick shades (particularly for fair skin).
