A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Change is Good

The autumn season is quickly approaching. So many new collections and trends. In cosmetics and clothing. It's never to late to revamp your image or reinvent yourself. You can do that by experimenting.

Fall Wardrobe: In Stores Now
Decide what's your best feature.
Try on outfits appropriate for your lifestyle.
Incorporate essentials like sweaters, blazers, and an uber feminine dress that takes you from dawn to dusk.
Complete your look with a detailed carryall..chains, metallics, or animal prints are a must.

Fall Beauty Forecast
Decide what's your best feature.
Try on new shades at the counter to see how they wear.
Limited edition palettes provide complimentary colors for eyes, lips, and cheeks (one stop shopping). I like the NARS "Only You" Eye & Cheek Palette/$65.
Play with velvety textures, shimmery finishes, and plush mattes.

  1. Dear BlackSwan how soon can I start wearing boots, I know some people wear them year round, but when is it really okay?

  2. SupremeTee:
    It's a matter of personal style and the style of the boot. Open toe or closed in booties can be worn anytime and mid-calf boots give you an edgy look on a cool evening. Balance the look with a simple ensemble. Although some women rock them year round, I would save the longer versions for colder temps.
