El neón es una gran manera de añadir un toque de color a tu atuendo. El uso de neón puede ser divertido y fácil con estos consejos.

A Touch of Neon

If you wear a neon accessory make sure your other accessories are neutral.

Si llevas un accesorio neón asegúrate de que tus otros accesorios sean neutros.

Neon Makeup
And if you are more of a makeup girl you can try neon makeup. If you decide to wear neon makeup make sure you focus only on one area,  either the eyes or the lips. Don’t wear neon eyeshadows with neon lips it will be too crazy and make sure the rest of your outfit is toned down with  neutral tones.
Y si te gusta más el maquillaje puedes intentar el maquillaje de neón. Si decides usar el maquillaje neón asegurarte de que te enfocas sólo en un área, ya sea en los ojos o los labios. No lleves sombras neón con los labios neón y asegúrete de que el resto de tu atuendo sea de tonos neutro.

Color Blocking Trend

Who would of thought that wearing two opposite colors together will be the it trend for Fall. Long gone are the days of wearing all black and dark colors from head to toe. Is great to see some color during gloomy days when the sun goes down so early. Who can have a bad day wearing color pants!

There are many ways you can try out color blocking. Color blocking may be confusing and intimidating but there are some rules that can help us out.

  • Using a basic color wheel chart we can see which colors look good together.  Colors next to each other are easy to combine because they are from the same color family and compliment each other.
  • Remember to keep accessories and makeup neutral.

This video is very helpful and explains how to color block in a simple way.

Soft shiny locks

After my trip from Europe I decide to become a brunette. I went to my hair stylist and she did the whole process. She told me that I must condition my hair because my hair is going through drastic changes. I have always used professional hair products so I thought my hair was safe.  Boy was I wrong ! My stylist explained that when you change our hair color we must change the hair routine because hair tends to become very dry with the dying process. The other day I went to the drugstore to buy chocolates and they had a sale on hair products. I typically never buy hair products at the drugstore mainly because I use professional hair care products. In New York we have beauty supplies stores everywhere. These stores carry everything from Pantene to Salerm products, anything you can imagine, even things you didn’t know people use for beauty. They carry products from all over the world.

So mainly I always go to any local beauty supply store to get my products but I was tempted to buy a deep hair mask by Neutrogena. Its called Triple Moisture by Neutrogena and it change my whole perspective on drugstore hair care products. It left my hair silky smooth and it smell like sweet almonds but is not an overpowering smell. This deep mask works better than the one my stylist puts on my hair and charges me $60 dollars. I washed my hair , then I put the mask with a shower cap and left it on for 5 minutes. After I rinsed my hair I blow dried it. My hair feels really soft. I really was attracted to this product because it says it has naturally derive extracts such as olive oil and almonds. It says that it treats dry, over processed and color treated hair. Since I was blonde and decided to become a brunette my hair has been under a lot of stress so I need to moisturize my hair. This product became a must have and that rarely happens with any product so quickly because I like to use products for a while to see if they actually work. This really taught me a lesson, don’t  judge or generalized products based on others opinion.  Like that old saying goes  “don’t judge a book by its cover” Next time you go to a store and you are curious about a product follow your instinct you might just be surprised …. Happy shopping 🙂

A camera that makes you beautiful ???

Looking good is very important especially to women. We do things that are painful to make us look better such as waxing, wearing high heels to look thinner or injecting Botox to look “younger” . Let’s face it we do anything and everything to look our best. We even turned to technology  to “fix” our flaws like using photoshop.

Panasonic has come up with a camera that erases wrinkles, whitens teeth and adds makeup to your face. If you are in for a quick fix this might be your camera. You don’t need to hassle with photoshop and it includes various settings and beauty features.

On the other hand its pretty cool how technology has evolve but there’s a bias feeling when it comes to this type of technology and what society perceives as beautiful now a days. What do you think ?

Spring Nail Polish Trends

It’s still very cold in New York to wear the new spring trends but no fear nail polish is here! The easiest way to incorporate spring is to wear the beautiful spring colors. My favorites nail polish colors for spring are baby blue, coral and lilac. A very hot trend right now is the shatter nail polish look which we have seen some celebrities sporting like Katy Perry and Fergie
