Au Naturale prides itself on being a non-toxic cosmetics range for today’s health savvy, socially conscious and fashion-forward woman.

The products in Julie Henderson Au Naturale Beach Bombshell Collection are designed to be worn either together or separately.  To get the best results, and achieve the perfect natural, beauty look this summer, use the products in the following manner:

1)    Start by using your fingers to apply the Organic Crème Concealer, which will hide any unwanted under eye dark circles or unwanted blemishes.

2)    Next apply the Organic Crème Eye Shadow Stick, which comes in a glittering beige, ideal for all skin tones.

3)    Then, use either a brush, finger tip or sponge to highlight the high points with the Organic Crème Bronzer stick.  The Bronzer Stick is intended to naturally high light where the sun would hit first.

4)    Follow with the Organic Cream highlighter, putting it above where you have put the bronzer to create luminous, dewy skin.

5)    Finish with the Organic lipstick and or lip gloss, which are both food grade and contain nourishing organic oils, good for the skin.

Now you have the perfect sun-kissed look!

 

 

Cute Ways to Wear Overalls

The 90s came back in a big way bringing trends like crop tops, overalls, oversized sweaters and neon colors to the runways and fashionistas everywhere. The breakout star of that bunch is definitely overalls. Everywhere you look this summer stylish ladies were wearing overalls. They have been spotted on models like Alexa Chung and style blogger The Man Repeller. If you want to try this trend out wear your overalls with a blouse, crop top or stripe shirt. Avoid wearing a wifebeater or flannel unless you want to look like a farmer.

If you want to look chic and put together wear slightly baggy overalls with a white silk blouse, a red scarf and brown suede ankle booties. Style your hair in a polished top bun and wear minimal makeup with red lips.

Grunge 90s Look

Wear beat-up long overalls with a striped crop top and birkenstocks. Birks are dorky sandals, but they make your look strangely cool. Complete your look with a messy and chic model off-duty hairstyle.

This look is perfect if you’re going to a festival like Coachella. You can wear short overalls, a modern tie-dye shirt and flat sandals. Accessorize your look with beaded bangles, a crossbody bag and flower crown.

Three Natural Skincare Lines for Spring

 We guzzle fresh juices and munch on lush salads. But what about food for our skin? The latest trend, that’s hopefully here to stay, is fueling the skin with natural, edible ingredients. For some of us, smearing avocado on our face or the sting of bee venom does not sound too appetizing. So here are three growing brands whose products pack revitalizing ingredients without any messy side effects.

Indie Lee

 After suffering from a brain tumor in 2009, Indie Lee set out on a mission to rid toxins from her everyday life. Realizing the number of chemicals that often goes into skin products, she decided to start there. Her namesake brand uses only all-natural ingredients in the forms of cleansers, oils, serums and more. The products use a bare minimum of elements, which are often fruits or florals. Fan favorites are the Squalane Facial Oil and the Rosehip Cleanser.

Pai Skincare

Designed for sensitive and allergy-prone skin, the brand is great for those who are wary of skin inflammation. The products have no parabens, alcohol, beeswax or other skin irritants such as propylene glycol. Featured ingredients are avocado, rosehip, and jojoba, which help to sooth and hydrate skin.

Juice Beauty

 

Available at Whole Foods, Juice is a more affordable option compared to the other higher end brands. Their products, which cover the gamut of skincare, makeup and hair care, use USDA Certified organic ingredients.  Each product packs in an average of seven naturally potent extracts, from the more exotic algae and jojoba to kitchen staples like carrot and apple.

Four Ways to Rock the Crop Top/Skirt Combo

Skirts are lengthening while shirts are shrinking. As odd as it seems, celebs have been cropping up (pun intended) everywhere in long feminine skirts with a matching mini top.  Kim Kardashian, Shailene Woodley, Miranda Kerr and others have dabbled in the trend. Here are a few more practical ways to try the style out for yourself.

 1)   If making a huge statement isn’t your thing, try a muted color. Kim Kardashian tones it down—if that’s possible for Kim—in all white. article-0-1C3AB34900000578-21_306x738

2)    Cover up! Jamie Chung adds a fun leather jacket that pulls the eyes away from the midriff.

3)    Still nervous about being too out there? Ditch the matchy-matchy look to take things down a notch. Coordinate colors or mix totally different ones, like Anne Hathaway.

4)    Who said a crop top had to be involved? Tuck your top into a lady-like skirt for a classic look. Or work it like Solange and add the matching element through the jacket.

Fashion Icon of the Month – Audrey Hepburn

03-_audrey_hepburn

This April, we are going back in time and choosing Audrey Hepburn for Manchester PR’s pick for Fashion Icon. I’ve adored Ms. Hepburn since the 8th grade, when my English teacher decided I choose her for a biography project (in which we had to dress up as said icon) on the basis that I resembled her. I had no idea who she was at the time – and I am still grateful everyday that my eyes were opened to this beauty.
