Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes

It is amazingly sunny for an October month here in Copenhagen. It is not warm, but sunny. Those who live in Scandinavia know what I am talking about. :) Because of the shining sun we still want warm and glowing colors.

It would have been nice, if I could have used one of the new Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes right now. I loved them..!! Chanel named their 2012 nail polishes after the months of spring. April, May and June. I already fell in love with june. June is a lovely creamy pastel apricol color. I can not wait for spring. Which is your favorite?

 

Sunday song; Smiley-Dream girl

A wonderful sunny sunday with nice autumn colours here in Copenhagen. Don’t let the sunshine and singing birds fool you..!! It is definetely not a good idea to go out without a warm jacket or a cashmere scarf.

From this week on I will share a song on my blog every sunday and I will call it “sunday song“. It will probably reflect my mood . Before I am going out to enjoy this beautiful, sunny day here is my first Sunday Song;

This winter is full of glitter..!! My new obsession==> Glitter booties

Picture: Le Blog de Betty
2011 is the year for glimmer and shine..!! Glimmer shoes and boots are so trendy this winter. And Miu Miu 2011 Autumn Collection is full of those. Although those vintage look, glitter Miu Miu boots are incredibly pretty, they are not exactly my style. I would rather go for a pair from TOPSHOP’s 2011 Autumn Collection ==> Ambush glitter ankle boots..!! They are not in the stores yet, and the are totally sold out on the webshop. : (

AMBUSH GLITTER ANKLE BOOTS

Those Topshop boots are nearly a twin sister of the  Giuseppe Zanotti boots that I wanted to buy last year. I couldn’t give 895$ for Giuseppe Zanotti, but I will definetely walk with those Topshop versions on Copenhagen streets..!! ;)

What do you say? Miu Miu orTopshop??

Orange lips..!!

Orange is the must have color for lips this summer..!! The Spring/Summer 2011 runway, fashion magazines, catalogs and ads are full of models with orange lips. What about you?? Have you tried this fun color?

We have to admit that orange is definitely an intimidating color for many but it is surprisingly wearable. You just have to give it a chance. :)

How to pull of orange lips perfectly..!!

I have some great tips on how to make this exciting color work for you. Here are they;

  • Keep it clean ..!!

Your lips have to be the focus point of your look.  It is not a good idea to use bold colors for the rest of your face. Make it simple. It is so easy to look overdone and cheap. Just a little champagne eyeshadow, thick layer of mascara and some bronzer on your cheeks. You will be rocking with orange lips..

  • Start with a Lip Gloss

An orangey lip gloss is a good start for those who are less brave to try an orange lipstick. It is less vibrant and very suitable for a day make up. Last but not least it looks amazing with summer tan..!!

  • Consider your skintone

Fair Skintones: If you have a fair skintone, go for a lipgloss. Peach tones and light oranges make wonders on pale complexions.

Medium Skintones: If you have a medium skintone, you can pull off everything..!! A bold vibrant orange lipstick or a sheer lipgloss.. Find something that you feel yourself comfortable.

Dark Skintones: If you have a dark skintone, you will look wonderfull with warmer shades of orange. You can also be bold and pull of a very vibrant orange lipstick.

  • What about coral??

Coral is technically orange.. ;) It is just less intimidating. It works for everyone..!!
