The 90s are back. A part of me is excited that the trends and styles of my coming-of-age decade is returning, but a part of me is afraid that society can’t handle a revamp of the “fanny pack.” I normally concentrate my efforts on Old Hollywood, (like the 30’s, 40s, 50s, maybe the 60s). However, since I had a front row seat for the 1990s, I feel like I can predict where fashion and beauty trends are headed. Here are a few 90s looks I’m looking forward to….
Mauve lips- lips in the 90s all had a brownish tint to them. I’m not a fan of brick red lips, but the mauve shades of the 90s are sexy paired with a smokey eye
Model-off-duty look- Supermodels became the Starlets of the 90s. The look is meant to feel like you’re running around NYC going to casting calls. It’s usually a casual look, as simple as jeans and a t-shirt, with an added touch of glamour, like a statement necklace or a bold lip. (more…)
Last month we looked at Fall/Winter fashion trends that work for Everyday Starlets. Today we’re looking at beauty trends. As I mentioned in the fashion post, Starlets don’t tend to be trendy, but they always follow fashion and what’s current. So here are a few beauty trends that modern day Old Hollywood Starlets can rock….
Over the years my weight has fluctuated more than Oprah’s. Once I discovered how to lose weight, the challenge became how to keep it off. I realized recently that my weight has been getting a little higher than I’m comfortable. I’m not necessarily overweight for my height, but since I have been at an unhealthy weight before, I am sensitive to it and I want to catch myself before it gets out of hand. I needed motivation to get started. I don’t have any major events on the calendar… so I decided to create one… Red Carpet Season… (more…)
Nail polish is such a great way to experiment with your look. It’s not permanent and can easily be changed with your mood. That’s why it’s important for Everyday Starlet’s to have a nail polish wardrobe made up of all your color essentials….
These are the colors that are timeless, go-with-everything colors
Here are Everyday Starlet I clearly have a love affair with Old Hollywood, but that does not mean that I don’t pay attention to what’s going on in New Hollywood. It seems like the new IT thing is to launch a lifestyle blog. (more…)
Most Everyday Starlets have limited budgets, so we can’t always buy the most expensive beauty products. Some products, however, are worth the money. So I created a cheat sheet of products to splurge and products to save…
Splurge (purchase at department stores, salons, or Sephora… invest in quality over quantity)(more…)
I have to admit, I used to be a sugary cocktail kinda girl. That was until I met my boyfriend, PET. He seems to have been a bartender in a past life (if you believe in that sort of thing… past lives I mean… I’m assuming you all believe in bartenders). PET got me hooked on quality, classic cocktails…. and I’ve gotten him hooked on food with healthy, quality ingredients. My new favorite cocktail is a Classic Cointreau Sidecar.
