Style Sunday: The Lace DressHOME
Pretty lace dresses are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe this season. Black, white, navy or even in a pop colour like orange, lace is back in a big way. Rather than styling your lace with a girly, sugary-sweet feel, we recommend adding a touch of edge to this classic fabric to keep your look current this season!
With the following beauty recommendations, you can take it as far as you want! It’s your choice – encorporate one look for a touch of beauty inspiration to the trend, add a second if you want to go one step further, and use all three beauty tips for when you want to nail an entire look! Will you choose just one or all three for a beauty trifecta to rock with your little lace dress?
#1 - Moody Eyes
Go dark to add an edge to your lace. Often a great look is all about juxtaposition. Sweet mixed with a hard edge is a great beauty flavour and is really easy to achieve with a heavy eye. Black gel or liquid liner, pencil liners and smokey shadows look bold and daring against a feminine backdrop of lace, adding a little mystery to your look. For an eye as heavy as the one above, be sure to apply this section of your makeyp first. Then clean up the fallout before starting on your base to save on a whole heap of time tidying up! We love the MeMeMe Smokey Eye Kit which comes with every tool you'd ever need to create a deep, dark moody eye.
#2 - Illuminated Base
Keep your base dewy, glowy and fresh when wearing lace and a dark eye. Illuminated skin offsets smokey eyes and gives a youthful appearance to wearers - plus, illuminators are a must for skin that is a little tired/under-the-weather/dehydrated. They reflect light off your skin to highlight your face's best aspects and angles and when applied correctly, can make your features sing! Try the illuminator half of the Bloom Cream Blush Duo. Apply with finger tips to the very tops of your cheek bones, down the bridge of your nose, directly under the eyebrows (on the brow bone) and to the cupids bow just above your lips. Then add a little of the rose colour to the apples of your cheeks - hello gorgeous!
#3 - A Sprtiz of Scent
Finish your look with a spritz of your flirtiest scent - after all, lace dresses, sultry eyes and glowing skin call for a feminine burst of fragrance. Your outfitt and makeup will gets heads a turnin' but they'll remember you long after you've gone if you pick the right scent to leave lingering behind. We love La Perla J'aime Eau De Parfum which is just the right mix between girly, flirty and powerful and comanding. A charming and exquisitely feminine fragrance, La Perla J'aime reveals its surprising soul through a sophisticated flowery bouquet and a sensual chypre embrace. Plus, the pretty bottle will look super cute on your vanity counter! Spritz on wrists, decollatage and behind knees so the scent is deliciously activated by your body heat.
Do you own a little lace dress? Next time you rock yours, you'll be equal parts naughty and nice with the perfect 1, 2, 3 beauty punch. Go get 'em girls! - Lauren
