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!

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.

Review: Julep Nail Polish


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.

… Surely, with a little help from our friends over at Hint, Inc..

It has been said (maybe by Cupid) that February is a month for lovers. Red lips, lingerie, dark chocolate and bon-bons galore, Valentine’s Day is definitely on a woman’s mind. But, for the woman who is obsessively fashionably conscious, Valentine’s Day often hits the back burner of the mind, while Fashion Week (whether it be New York, London or Paris) takes the forefront.
