THE TURBAN HEAD WRAP

Is a trendy hair accessory in fashion, turban often give the look of a head wrap without you having to tie anything to achieve the look it is most time pre tied.

All turban head wrap are one size, so it fit all. It also comes in various materials and style.

It is also a saving grace on a bad hair day, whether you have long, short or curly hair, the styling possibilities of the head wrap is limitless.

A lot of people wear the turban head wrap as a fashion statement not for cultural or religious purposes.

The turban head wrap is in most cases not accepted in the office only when it is for religious reason but I feel it should be accepted cos l consider it as a fashion accessories and the use should not be limited, it should be used just the way we wear the hat, dramatic fascinator or scarves.

In the 1800 blacks and multiracial women were ordered to wear head wrap so that they would not be temp the white Lord or Master.

They wanted us to keep our hair in head wraps because we were getting too much attention with our creative and fabulous hair styles, but they would not stop us because we started tying the wraps in elaborate ways which gains more attention than the hair.

Our hair is a sense of pride and beauty because we wear it in different ways.

ASIAN MAKE UP

The major challenge for the Asian makeup is the eye, this is because their eye is usually small and no well defined crease so as a makeup artist you have to make the eye appear bigger by using eyeliner, false lashes and mascara.
The eyeliner helps makes the eye appear bigger and the mascara makes the eye to pop.
One of the go to make up look for Asian is the everyday natural look, this is soft, pretty and simple
The smoky eye is also an alternative look : for the Asian it is less about adding dimension to the outer crease because there is no crease it is more about creating an even effect from the lash line towards the brow.

Six ideas for Asian make up

  • Apply colour to the eyelid and add a black eyeliner in the corner of the crease and brown eyeshadow on the browbone, blend for a natural look.
  • You can play with colour by using different coloured eyeliner on top and bottom.
  • Line your eye with black eyeliner and double it with a colored eye liner.
  • Apply Gold eyeshadow and black on the outer corner of the crease.
  • Add blue shadow underneath the eye.
  • Add bright white Eyeliner along the bottom of  the waterline to make the eye appear bigger.

BUBBLE DRESS

I am so fresh in soul and spirit that life gushes and bubbles around me in thousand springs. “Robert Schumann”

The bubbled dress has been with us since the 1950’s no matter how often it goes away it keeps coming back.

The bubble dress is not going anywhere soon so it is time to make peace with its voluminous shape.

The body type that look good in this type of dress are mainly the ballerina.

THESE BOOT ARE MADE FOR WALKING…

Over the knee boots are one major hit this season and they look effortlessly stunning when combined with a micro mini skirt or a floating dress.

I admit it can be challenging to wear them out but that does not mean it is not worth trying. There are different ways of styling the over the knee boot to suit your body type. whether curvy, petite, tall . You can step up your shoe game.

For tall girls: The over the knee boot is easier to style with any outfit because of their long legs. For a perfect look, it is advisable they leave a little breathing room between their boot and their skirt line.

Curvy Girls: They can as well rock this look but they have to go for a pair that hits right above the knee, which will create a long lean leg line. For the curvy girl a miniskirt might feel a little too provocative for day time , they should go for pencil skirt that just hit the boot.

For petites: You can pair your over the knee boot with fitted structured pieces that show your shape. Don’t hide your boot under a long skirt line, cos this will shorten your legs. Leave plenty of space between your boot and your skirt line .

IF you want to bring this look to the office be sure to keep your skirt longer choose a more classic top with a button down shirt or blazer .

Feel like going for a daring look ! then add this sexy vibe to your wardrobe.

WHITE LOVE

Rita_040515_1060

The little white dress (LWD) is also considered as a wardrobe essential just like the little black dress (LBD)

In western cultures brides often choose to wear a white wedding dress, this was made popular by Queen Victoria who choose to wear a white dress during her wedding which was considered as an unusual choice at a time when colors were more usual.

White symbolizes, purity, cleanliness, innocence
White is glamorous when combined with black
It is angelic when worn  out in the city
Devilishly sexy at the beach
In fashion, the LWD is the most stable piece with lots of allure.
