3 Celebrity Inspired Looks for your Valentines Date

So the guy (or gal!) of your dreams asked you out on a date on this super important night.
 
You go girl!
 
But what are you going to wear? With so many options these days, how are you supposed to choose? And you don’t want to try everything. There’s nothing worse than wearing too much on a first date.
 
No, you want to be effortlessly beautiful and come just as yourself. With my 3 favorite celebrity inspired go to Valentines looks you will!

Rita Ora’s Apricot Days

 
Rita Ora has always looked effortlessly stunning, but this is one that you can pull off too. Not only is it a gorgeous look, but its current and keeps you from looking unapproachable.

Apply apricot blush along the cheekbone sweeping all the way up to your temples. Blend a rose gold shimmer from the inner eye out and blend it with the apricot blush. Stick to a matte pinkish lipstick and dust with the blush. Finish with the usual eyeliner and lightly fill those brows. Voila!

 

Lily-Rose Depp – Egyptian Goddess

 
The face of Chanel and the daughter of Jack Sparrow, Lily-Rose Depp is quickly becoming a style icon. Here she looks stunning and exotic all at once.

A big helping of gold eyeshadow bleeding into the highlight area followed by thick kohl black eyeliner. Feel free to wing it up more to follow the gold to give it that Egyptian look. You can go with the light pink lipstick as Lily-Rose has done here, or you could even go red for that bombshell look. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this look.

 

Katy Perry in Classic Pink

 
Or maybe you want to go with the tried and true. I love Katy Perry’s look here and it’s one I keep going back to. It’s classically beautiful and definitely not overpowering.

A subtle cat-eye wing with a nude eyeshadow on the lid and in the crease. Highlight the inner eye with shimmery white. Use your favorite pink lipstick and finish with some lip balm to add that extra shine.
 
Now that that’s done, go and get’em girl!
 
Happy valentines! Let us know what look you have planned for this Valentines day in the comments below! If you have any pictures we’d love to see them, and, hey, we might give you something for it!

My 5 Favorite Looks from the Grammys 2017

The Grammy’s is music’s night of nights. Not only is it a time to reflect on the past year’s hits, but, it’s also a night to find out what outrageous outfits celebrities have decided to strut upon the red carpet! That’s at least as, if not more, entertaining for me than the award proceedings.

So without further ado here are my 5 favorite looks from the Grammys 2017!

Congrats! Adele

And the winner of record of the year goes to… Adele! True, Beyonce was equally deserving with her groundbreaking album Lemonade, but, hey, neither of them deserved to lose. If only you could award ties… Wait… You can! How gracious was she to give the other half of the award she went Hulk-smash on to Beyonce, right?

Kat Graham

 
Kat Graham doesn’t need to do anything. She’s a smart (speaks 5 languages), powerful, triple threat woman. So she could have worn no makeup and still would have shone, but, if she was going to wear any makeup to the Grammys, this was it. And she did it on her own. Just look at those shimmery lips. It’s unfair how talented she is… (Nah, still love ya’).

Beyonce

 
Speaking about talented women, exhibit 1: Queen Bey. Not only did she perform live at the biggest music industry event of the year. While pregnant. With twins. But she looked like a radiant gold goddess while doing it. Her makeup artist, Sir John, said her makeup design was an ode to the Gucci white dress collection in the 90s by Tom Ford. Whatever the inspiration, that night Beyonce was exactly that, an inspiration.

Laverne Cox

 
Woh, you go girl! Laverne Cox of Orange is the New Black and Time cover fame has never been one to conform, and, why should she now? The gorgeous and dashing streak of grey outlined by black with onyx and diamante accents. Breath-taking.

Lady Gaga

 
Well of course she makes a statement. Lady Gaga is practically a walking statement in and of herself. Without going into whatever is going on below the neckline, above the neckline she looks as strikingly gorgeous as ever. Magenta and gold eyeshadow blended into a strong dark wing. I think that’s going to have to be a number I keep for later! Totally out there, but totally desirable, pretty much Lady Gaga.

Katy Perry

 
We gunna hear her roar (OK, my bad, terrible joke). Katy Perry looked decadently fierce on the red carpet for the Grammys this year. I love her with that mess of blonde, but it’s those wine red lips and dark rose gold eye shadow that tie it all together.

Special Mention: Cee-Lo Green

 
Yeah. I don’t know what’s going on here either. Futuristic Egyptian God Throwback? Maybe?
