Miami Swim Week 2017

Swim Week is here again and it is just as steamy and fun-filled as Miami Beach where the annual event draws buyers, customers, media, and editors from all over the world.  The models are back in force, castings are complete, and the beach is lined with gorgeous bodies all in anticipation of the shows, the media coverage, and the parties and events that accompany one of the most-anticipated events on the fashion calendar.  

The runway shows and accompanying trade show features international swimwear and resort wear brands' collections for 2018, and sets the trends for the coming season.  Many brands make their debut at Swim Week, exposing them to the media and buyers from around the world, placing them alongside established labels.  I can't wait to see what the new collections have in store for next year, as there is something for every taste, body type, and vacation destination. 

Loving this editorial for Harper's Bazaar Germany by Paul Bellaart:

90’s Makeup for 2017: The Top Two Beauty Trends of the 1990’s Are BACK

The 80’s,90’s, and 00’s are all having a beauty moment right now which means we have a lot of beauty looks to play with, and with very little risk of looking like you are stuck in a time warp – or worse – a beauty rut.  70’s blue eyeliner, 80’s intense colors and eye liners, and both the 90’s nude palette beauty and the opposite, strong contour looks, are relevant again.  Summer is the perfect time to try the no-makeup makeup while fall is the right time for the more defined looks of the 90’s.

The nude-toned palette look was seen on models like Amber Valetta and Kate Moss, with thin eyebrows, peach-hued blush, no eyeliner, and lips one shade darker than the model’s own lip color.  The 2017 take on this trend skips the thin brows and instead full, strong eyebrows keep things modern.  Mac Spice Lip liner was King, or Queen as it were, and for a hot moment it was trendy to let the lip liner be visible, without matching the lip color or blending it in, but that too is thankfully relegated to the past. So blend, blend, blend.  (Or look ridiculous).

Legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin was the master of the stronger contoured beauty looks that filled editorial pages and covers.  The same color palette ruled but applied in a way to really define the face, almost altering it.  Think all today’s contouring trends are new?  Think again. Kevyn Aucoin started it almost thirty years ago, and everyone today can thank him for the sculpted face look, with highlighted temples, cheekbones and eyebrow bones, and refined noses.  The 2017 take is less dramatically contoured, toned-down highlighted areas, and a more glowing complexion rather than matte. 

Everything old is new again and most of it is relevant is some way or other, so be inspired.   Pick some part of the trend and update it to today with simple tweaks from this years most fashion-forward looks.  And yes, Mac Spice Lip liner is still a top seller, and no beauty kit is complete without it.  That’s as classic as it gets.

Top New Lip Treatments for Kissable Lips

Sun, wind, and A/C can make our lips dry and parched and in need of a little TLC.  Fortunately there are new specialized products that target dryness, chapped or cracked lips and fine lines that can bring back your lips to kissable in no time. 

My picks for the top new lip treatment products:

GLAMGLOW POUTMUD Fizzy Lip Exfoliating & Wet Lip Balm Treatment Duo: the Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment treats dry lips with can sugar, sea salt and fruit extracts, while the Wet Lip Balm Treatment hydrates with cocoa butter, and almond, tamanu and babassu oils. 

La Mer The Lip Balm:  this minty treatment is infused with La Mer’s Miracle Broth made up of sea kelp and minerals, and delivers hydration while forming a protective barrier on lips to prevent further dryness

Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy: this formula softens and protects lips with wild mango butter, plumps with hyaluronic acid, and diminishes fine lines with sea fennel extracts.

Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Lip Plumping Lip Balm:  this rose-scented gentle treatment soothes, plumps and hydrates lips and protects with SPF 10.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil:  this lightweight lip treat smooths, plumps  and combats dryness with pure organic oils, while delivering high shine and a hint of color, available in seven delicious tints. 

All lip products available at Sephora.com.

Fashion Crush – Romantic Summer Dresses

Summer is simply a romantic season, with warm evenings, long walks, sunshine and starry nights, and maybe even a little bit of exotic travel.  This year’s most dreamy dresses are romantic in floaty fabrics, softer prints, less structured silhouettes, and sweet touches like ruffles, lace, and florals.  One of the key trends for summer is a higher neckline and a more modest look with long delicate sleeves on midi and maxi length dresses, but if bare shoulders appeal to you, you won’t be disappointed.  Don’t resist the urge to be soft and pretty, to let go of tight and constricting styles for summer, and to look like a love story heroine. Nothing could be fresher and sweeter.  Long live romance!

Jane Birkin – Style Crush

Born in England but with a French soul Jane Birkin has become a style legend. Her look has been so outside of fashion that it became its own fashion, a look that has been channeled by Kate Moss to fashion designers and brands, to bloggers like Alexa Chung.

Jane has never looked like she was trying to hard or that her look was “studied”.  It was just Jane being Jane, with her tomboy figure, fringed bangs, and laid-back style. It was as if this tall, willowy creature with the big eyes and long hair just threw on her jeans and at-shirt, a lick of mascara and she was off, creating a French style esthetic that hasn’t changed since then.  For Jane, bras and shoes were optional. 

Becoming Jane is as easy as wearing flared jeans, fitted t-shirts, white button down shirts, jean shorts, stripes, and midriff-baring crop tops.  There is no easier summer beauty look than Jane’s, and straight-haired tomboys need only a rosy blush, and mascara worn on both the top and bottom lashes to play up the wide-eyed look.

There is good reason Jane’s style and beauty endures to this day.  It is incredibly sexy and youthful for a woman to be natural, and to wear simple, classic things that make you notice her rather than her makeup or what she is wearing.  She doesn’t need any embellishment or to transform into something else.  French women to this day can thank Jane making simple jeans, t-shirts, men’s shirts, skinny necklaces, natural hair, and fresh-faced beauty with a dash of mascara the look that today is considered the epitome of French girl cool.
