5 Ways To Rock A Crop Top: Spring/Summer 2014

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year, you probably have noticed that crop tops have quickly made their way back into world of fashion.  And to be honest I’m both ecstatic and worried.  Crop tops can either make a fashion statement or trash your entire look.  But when done well, it can really be a fun item to add to your closet this season.

Yes.  I said need.  We all need to enjoy the little pleasures we have as women.  And great lingerie is one of them.  And although I enjoy occasional trips to Victoria’s Secret, I have to admit I would much rather put myself into something sans padding.  So instead of buying anything I can wear, I usually walk out with a boat load of their lip glosses… because they are just so yummy and do the greatest job of shining my lips :)  And aside from the usual suspects like Agent Provocateur and ol’faithful La Perla, there are some great brands we need to get to know a little better… or maybe a lot better.

Top Celebrities Who Use Contouring Makeup (and how to do it yourself)

Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist Scott Barnes are probably the first to open up about how contouring is used behind the Hollywood scenes, but since then many other celebs have shown their versions.  While I love them all, I do not like to use heavy contouring for day looks but for a night event or photo shoot… Contour Away!!!  For most of us, the holidays will be filled with dinners with family and thats the perfect time to take these looks for a test drive, just remember… blend.  Blend.  Blend.

 Here is my favourite contour tutorial by Carli Bybel:
