What’s the deal with Rihanna’s Fenty makeup?

18 Jan

Capture-Fenty Beauty Line

Ladies,

Rihanna last year set out to make a product that was supposed to cater to women who have many shades of skin. In my experience, most companies could not make a foundation that worked and catered well to a lot of different skin complexions. Well, let me say I think Rihanna has hit a home run. The Fenty Beauty make up has over 40 shades of foundation. I have for years struggled with finding a foundation that fit my skin tone. When I did the company had limited quantities, could never find in stores that carried and was never in stock. Well, I found the perfect foundation with Fenty. Alas, it has been such a success that I could not get any in December because the stores were sold out, but that was essentially due to its unexpected success and it being the holiday season.

Rihanna came out with an affordable and very effective foundation ranging in price from $18 to $54 depending on the size you are looking for. The vast array of 40 shades of foundation and 30 contour and highlight sticks generally has something for all skin tones. If you are searching for a foundation this is probably where you want to go. Now its sold online but for your first trip out you want to go into a store and start testing on your skin to see how it covers.

I found the foundation to be smooth and silky applying and does not feel chalky at all. I recommend talking to a makeup rep at any of the stores that sell it like Sephora and ask for a sample. Going on, the foundation feels like it is well made and lasts all day. Now I don’t like the shiny feeling that many foundations leave after a few hours wear. But Fenty is totally oil free and comes in matte which helps reduce significantly the oily face which I can’t stand. I have searched diligently looking for a foundation that was affordable and perfectly matches my skin tone. I have found it.  Bottom line I recommend checking out the entire line of Fenty make up.

Squiggle or Wavy Eyebrows are another cosmetic trend…will it stay?

3 Sep

Wavy Brows2
Hey Ladies,

I am not yet warm to this idea. It reminds me of how to be creative but not look funny when putting on makeup. The thing I like best is that the squiggle eyebrow is another way to show your individuality.  It’s important that you always show your personal style and be mindful of your ability to influence what people may want to say.

Wavy Brows3

Love Our Glamour believes that every woman should be proud of who she is and if this is another way to expound on a woman’s individuality with squiggle eyebrows, then I am all on board. Please let me know what you think of this trend.

Continue to be beautiful.

Technology meets Eyelashes – LED Flashing Eyelashes

15 Aug

Lightup Eyelashes

Hey Ladies,

I am very curious about this new special technology that brings lights to your eyelids. Namely LED lights that change color, blink, and flash.  Please take a look at this video too. Tell us what you think either way. They make your eyelashes stand out and certainly look different. These light-up eyelashes can make your eyes pop. We think it’s fashion forward if done in taste and may be the new next big trend. Tell us what you think in the comment box below.

To your continued success,

Anatomy of a Handbag Part 3 – decorative & fashionable accessories & accents for your handbag

24 Jul
The first two parts to the Anatomy of a Handbag can be found here.

This is a comprehensive guide for the accents you may want on your handbag. Embellishments or attachments that make a difference in the appearance of any handbag. They can significantly enhance the appearance and fashion appeal of the everyday handbag.

Accents for your handbag

Bling /Swarovski crystals/rhinestones/similar shiny stones & studs– These refer to when your handbag has things that shine like crystal rhinestone, sparkling glitter or similar diamond-like stones that add an upscale feel to any handbag. There are an endless array of rhinestones that make a bag stand out and upgrades its appeal. There are several types of manufacturers who make rhinestones, each offers a different level of durability while others look good but are of less quality. Swarovski crystals are one the best-known types of rhinestones and are the most expensive. There are many more that provide the appearance for a cheaper cost. Bottom line is that glistening crystals on a handbag provides a certain feel for that bag. Making it classy and expensive looking for what would look like a typical handbag.

Buckles – come in many shapes and styles, oddly when a handbag does have a buckle typically it has no functional value. The designer simply wanted a certain look. Functional buckles have a tendency to be hard to access into a handbag.
That may be the main reason why they are not used for other than decoration.
 
Buttons – These too have generally no functional value when added to handbags. They are again to create a look. Button as a rule for compartments and openings are never used because they just do not allow quick easy access to handbags and purses.

Charms –  A true new accent are charms. Tassels are a form of charms. But charms have been around women’s necks for hundreds of years. In the last several years they have found their way as accents to handbags. These varied accents are anything from key chains, car key fobs, funny figures, fur balls, plastic items just about anything a designer can come up with and women will buy.  Here is a great article on some of the best charms. Time will tell if charms are just a fad, but currently are all the rage.

Chains – chains used on handbag have very versatile feature set. They can and are used as the handle and decorations. Chains can often set a normal simple looking handbag into a designer style bag.

Corner Protectors & Reinforcements –  These come in a variety of shapes, styles, metal, plastic fabric, just about anything that will provide added protection for the bottom corners of a handbag. Oddly most handbags don’t have corner protectors due to manufacturers not wanting to add the cost believing not adding an enormous amount of functional value. Corner protectors can provide added protection and reinforcement for certain types of handbags. But it really depends on the handbag as slouchy hobo type handbags will have absolutely no benefit for corner protectors while structured handbags like the one pictured below may provide added functional benefit.

Designer Medallion –  Designer Medallions is the quintessential accessory that makes the ordinary bag “the it” bag. From the super luxury handbags of Prada & Gucci, to the luxury of Coach to Micheal Kors and even an unbranded handbag with a medallion can make a woman feel like having luxury on their arm. Medallions and particularly designer medallions indicate the status for which a woman buys a branded handbag. The medallions add a classy luxury feel to the handbag and is one of the most sought after accessories for your handbag. It’s the best accent a women can have on their handbag.
Detachable Shoulder Strap –  Handbags that have short handles where you can only carry in the palm of your hand will often have a detachable shoulder strap that will allow you to carry the handbag on your shoulder. This flexibility provides a different dimension to how it is carried on the shoulder. As anyone will tell you is very important in many cases.

Feet –  Handbag feet are very common and provide “some” level of protection from wear but I have not found a single handbag that had the feet where it matters.  The purse is so slouchy or not still or structural enough where the feet don’t keep it from touching the surface where you put it. But needless to say it been historical for some structured & stiff handbags a staple in their use, albeit not one that matters necessarily to the handbags look.

Decorative Locks –  For a long time in last 10 years locks on handbags meant luxury but over that time they have been a mark of quality if not price. Locks on handbags offer no functional value but comes in that genre of accents that just make a bag stand out and feel like a luxury handbag.

Snaps & Clasp Closures – for years snap closures were synonymous with handbags. They provided an easy access closure that was durable. However, although snap closures are still used today they are no longer used by the luxury brands as much as they have come to mean less quality and have been used by more cheaper brands. More contemporary handbags have a magnetic clasp and can be fashion on many types of handbags. While clasp closures are going strong in every type of handbag. Luxury to affordable brands and styles use clasp closure extensively.  The difference is snap closure literally go through a loop or half loop and click. While the clasp closure twist to open its flap.

Tassels –  Of all the accents for a handbag one of the most widely used and most versatile is the tassel. It generally has absolutely no functional value to the handbag but to the attachments add an enormous amount of visual excitement are getting a resurrection in a different form.  Tassels have been used to provide a classic stylish look but never looks dated. They come in many shapes sizes, styles and kinds. They have even changed and are being replaced with other attachments that generally have no function value but appeals to the younger female crowd and are called fur accents. Their renaissance has changed tassel to be functional in that they clip part are used to hold keys, small wallets and other items that have a function value.
