Now that the weather has gotten cooler it is time for cozier apparel. Now if you live in a region of the world where you can totally get away with a dress during these months then I totally envy you. So here is some inspiration using an eye catching Peter Pilotto long sleeved dress.
Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli once again created magic for their latest couture collection. The two designers don’t shy away when it comes to displaying their Italian heritage on the runway of the very Italian fashion house. The inspiration for this collection and the ones before it can be found all throughout Italy from a public library to a grotto. Take a look at my favorite ensembles and if you want to see the entire collection click here.

Sometimes less is better. This was the case for many of the Spring/Summer 2015 collections, where models displayed effortless looks using minimal makeup and simple hairdos. This summer you definitely don’t want to get caught in an embarrassing situation like having super-sticky lipstick or even worse having your foundation melting off your face. Take a glance at the beauty found throughout this seasons shows.
Instead of using foundation swap it with a nice and light BB cream which will not only cover small blemishes, but will also serve as sunblock; without it smelling like actual sunscreen. If you still have visible blemishes that you are insecure about you are welcome to add a small amount of powder foundation to the area for the extra coverage. To stop any problems you encounter with a shiny T-Zone blotting paper is your answer. Blotting paper will eliminate any unwanted shine and you’ll be able to do any touch-ups after you use it.
If you have visible redness in or around the cheek area after applying a BB cream try adding some blush which will not only camouflage the redness, but will ultimately end up brightening your face. If you want to sculpt and accentuate certain areas of your face add some bronzer to the top of your forehead, and on your cheekbones and jawline.

Lets not forget about our eyelashes. During the sizzling summer season it’s best to go with a water-proof mascara which will prevent you from having any smudges. When it comes to eyeshadows the choice is up to you, but remember to ditch the dark colors during the spring and summer seasons. That means no dark smokey eyes, in contrast lean to more neutral or lively colors. The same goes with goes with lips you can give them a “look at my lips” feel by using any pinks, corals, or reds. Alternatively, a lip balm will suffice this summer because with its added SPF and moisturizing benefits you just cant go wrong.
This seasons hair forecast calls for simplicity. Stop damaging your hair by using heat tools and start embracing more laid back do’s like your natural hair type, beach waves, braids, and various half-up half-down styles. Now if you want a more polished look a sleek high or low pony tail will do the job, except this will require a straightener depending on your hair type. I’ll soon put a link here to a post I will publish of my beauty recommendations which go along with this.
The Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 collection has something for everyone from cropped jeans to gorgeous gowns. The broad colorful palette used ranges from fiery red hearts to the nocturnal night sky. Here are a few of my favorites from the 97 look collection.
