These head-to-toe tips will glam you up,

even if you're a non-girly girl.


Hair: Master the high ponytail

The trick to this classic style is the placement of the pony. Pile your hair back just above the tops of your ears and secure with an elastic. If you have time, comb through your hair for a sleek look, or just keep it messy. Then take a small section of hair and wrap it around your elastic, securing the end with a bobby pin. Concealing your elastic adds an elegant finish with minimal effort.


Makeup: Pick a focus

Sometimes, applying primer, foundation, concealer, powder, eyeshadow, liner, mascara and everything else just takes too long. If you're quick at doing your brows, fill them in and just apply a bold lip color. Cut shine on your face with some powder and you'll be selfie-ready. 



Nails: Keep it clean

No time for a manicure? Who does! No polish is always better than horribly chipped polish, so clean it up and file a nice round or square shape. Then take your trusty nail buffer and give your nails some shine. Finish with a hand cream to hydrate those cuticles and you're done. Best part is, you can do this in less five minutes while on your way to the restaurant. 



Outfit: Stick to the classics

A tank top and jeans is always a good option. They're comfy, but you can dress them up with accessories or a blazer. Depending on where you're going, you might need to wear a darker wash jean or a sequined tank top. If you do your clothes just right, you'll get away with your favorite pair of sneakers. Very rock 'n roll. 

Have fun getting ready! And if you have a non-girly friend who would love these tips, forward this email!

5 tips to wear red lips (the right way)
5 tips to wear red lips (the right way)

November 15, 2017

A lady can never have too many lipsticks, and a beautiful red is one of the first things a beauty junkie ever buys. It's deceptively simple to wear, but think of these few tips for your next holiday party and take your favorite red lipstick to the next level. 


1. Matte and shimmer, made for each other.

The holidays tend to make us more heavy-handed with the glitter, but remember this: matte lips and shimmery cheeks, OR matte skin and glossy red lips. It's either one or the other, so don't overdo it! 

2. Prep your canvas.

There's nothing worse than beautiful red lips and nothing else on the face. Red lipstick is a classic that demands respect, so at the very least, make sure to de-shine your skin and fill in your brows. It'll give you a more polished look.
