AuNaturale Cosmetics was launched in 2014 and was driven by Prange and Sawyer’s desire to produce a “healthy” cosmetic line that offers exceptional quality products and an upscale yet artistic color palette. 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.

Since I can remember I have had an over-the-top obsession with manicures. I was never the girl that had an obscene amount of nail polish hidden in my bathroom drawers, but I was always the girl begging my mom to take me for a mani/pedi after school, and always made sure to have a coat of fresh polish on my fingers.

That being said I was thrilled when I was able to sample some Julep brand nail polish in recent weeks. Nothing brightens up your day and gives you the ultra feminine touch like a fresh manicure.

Seasoned Oscar-goers like Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence always dress to impress, and this year was no exception. Though there were some newer faces to Hollywood that stole the limelight like Lupita Nyong’o.

There was a lot of neutral tones on the red carpet, and certainly a handful of reds and blues. Just about everyone’s accessories were perfection this year. And the common theme seemed to be, less is more, and I couldn’t agree more!
