Filed under Beauty

Surviving the Summer heat can be quite exhausting and if there’s one part of our body that needs to hydrate the most, it would be our skin, particularly our face. You know how refreshing it feels like when you run ice-cube on your face during hot sunny days? Very nice and soothing right? Well, carrying ice-cube around would be impossible, that’s why we need something practical and ready-to-use anytime we need some skin refreshment. Therefore, I am so thankful for face mists. Not only do they hydrate and offer instant freshness, they also take good care of your skin by keeping it moists at all times. Here are 5 most favorite mists that you can find in the market now.

VieCouture Tips: Kiss Me Nude

Filed under Beauty 

by Vie on July 7, 2014

Before you get any idea, what I mean with nude is your lips. For the longest time, I’ve always been a loyal fan for nude-colored lipstick or gloss. What I like about this pale-looking result is the fact that not only does it make us sultry and sexy but also mysterious and in a way, innocent. Notice why celebs such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian are also big fans of this nudity.

I saw a post on Bazaar online recently about celebs who worked it right with their glossy/matte pink lips and it gives me the idea to do the similar post, but this time it is about going nude. Ladies, once you go pale and nude, you will find it hard to go back in colors (at least that’s how I feel! I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still like having shades of pink or even peach on my lips but my love will always be for pale/nude.) Here are some of my favorite lipsticks that I have tried and they’re quite affordable, too!

1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable (Precious).
What I like about this balm stain is not only the user-friendly idea but also the fact that the color is so soft and it lasts quite a while. I always have this one ready in my make up purse, and it’s only as low as US$8!

Revlon Just Bitten Kisses Precious

2. Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick (Delovely).
If I feel like going a like going a bit more glamorous and shiny, then I will reach to this Clinique Delovely. Its shade will give your lips the instant volume and not to mention, the sexy shimmer as well. A definite kissable pair! US$15.

Clinqiue Color Surge

3. Bourjois Rouge Collection (Beige Trench).
Last but not least, I love this casual yet sensual beige trench from Bourjois. It might be the palest amongst all but you’re gonna love it! Match it with shiny lipgloss and your pout will be to die for! US$18.57.

We watched “Oz the Great and Powerful” yesterday and although I wasn’t that impressed with the story but I totally enjoyed the colorful scenes, funny acts and of course glamorous fashion of the three beautiful witches. Inspired by that, I thought it would be fun to find fashion related to each character. So we have the girly girl, the elegant and the mysterious goth. Not sure which one is your favorite but I hope you like them three!

1. Glinda (played by Michelle Williams).
Oz The Great and Powerful Glida the Witch

I can’t help it but to fall in love with Michelle Williams in this movie. I created this radiant look based on her character as Glinda, the good witch. Glinda wears only delicate and natural colors such as white, silver with lots of lace, beads, feathers and of course sequins. I think this graceful silk-organza dress from Alice + Olivia represents it beautifully. I paired it with a simple yet stunning floral clutch from Kotur & to complete the overall look, I just had to include Jimmy Choo as the foundation. For make up, she used a lot of soft glitter that makes her look so angelic. Thus, the glitter dust from Make Up Forever and Clinique are on the line. As a final touch, Kenneth Jay Lane comes next with his simple yet gorgeous floral earrings.

1. Alice + Olivia Gwen Embellished Dress. US$997.
2. Kenneth Jay Lane Cubic Zirconia Floral Earrings. US$120.
3. Make Up Forever Iridescent White Glitter. US$14.
4. Clinique Frosty Soft Pink. US$15.
5. Kotur Floral Box Clutch. US$395.
6. Jimmy Choo Flick Embellished Leather Pumps. US$1,150.

2. Evanora (played by Rachel Weisz).
Oz the Great and Powerful Evanora

Even though her role in the movie was cold and mean but in my opinion, she has the best-looking dress. Wearing a good combination of green and black, Rachel Weisz looks absolutely stunning. Evanora’s dress is mostly lace with excellent beaded-sequins combined with feathers and silk. For this look, I chose Erickson Beamon’s US$3,135 dress. I know, crazy price, but look how amazing it is. Made out of green silk adorned with classic Swarovski crystals and lace trim, you just can’t take your eyes off this beauty. To keep it simple but nice, the 4-inch heels from Dolce & Gabbana and glitter box clutch from Anya Hindmarch come to mind. For the final touch, I added shiny onyx cuff from Bounkit & refreshing yet delightful eye-colors from Urban Decay and Dolce & Gabbana.

1. Erickson Beamon Feather Trimmed Silk Dress. US$3,135.
2. Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eyeshadow Quad Elegance 150. US$59.
3. Bounkit 24 Karat Onyx Cuff. US$605.
4. Anya Hindmarch Glitter Box Clutch. US$750.
5. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Stagedive. US$18.
6. Dolce & Gabbana Bow Slingbacks. US$995.

3. Theodora (played by Mila Kunis).
Oz the Great and Powerful Theodora

Being used and tricked by her sister, Evanora, I have high compassion towards Theodora. This collage is inspired by her look after she was changed into a cold-hearted witch. Mysterious with a little touch of goth, this dress from Dolce & Gabbana is more than just your daily LBD. Tagged at US$3,445, it is made of fine looking tulle and shaped into corset style, giving you the hourglass illusion. I added a unique looking clutch from Bottega Veneta because I simply like the leather that makes it edgy but still highly fashionable. For the make up, I need to thank Urban Decay for creating this special edition set “Theodora Palette”. Everything you need to re-create that look can be found in this special edition. For the soles, I decided to go classic with Christian Loubotin’s leather pumps. Theodora loves the color red, so I think it would only be fair if I add a touch of glitter red around the neck. This charming crystal heart necklace from Lanvin is a perfect companion for this flawless elegance.

1. Dolce & Gabbana Ruffled Tulle Dress. US$3,445.
2. Lanvin Crystal Heart Necklace. US$1,790.
3. Urban Decay Theodora Palette. US$49.
4. Bottega Veneta Fringed Leather Clutch. US$970.
5. Christian Louboutin Decollete Pumps. US$625.
