DAY TO NIGHT: Fashion and Beauty Tips

We all love going for cocktails with the girl gang after a big day at work and, some of us might have a cute date night after another shitty day in a classroom. Whatever you have going on, we could all use some helpful tips that help us go from day to night with ease!

daytonight

1. Change into a dark lip You should be moisturizing those luscious lips during the day with your favorite balm. Then when you go out for some fun during the night, smack on a dark lip for a quick, powerful and fierce night look.

2. Add statement jewelry Adding a few statement pieces to your #OOTN changes the whole game. It’ll transform your entire outfit – add a statement necklace for sophistication; stack a bunch of rings on for an edgy or boho look.

3. Smudge for a smokey look If you’re wearing a perfect line of eyeliner during the day, you’re already ahead of the night makeup look game. For a sexier and more night-time appropriate look, just smudge your liner onto your lids for that smokey eye look.

4. Swap your stud earrings for dangling earrings If you’re looking forward to partying at the end of the day, pack a pair of unique dangling earrings for that girly, eye-catching look.

5. Let your hair down Just like in the movies when someone lets their hair down after a lifetime of it in an up-do! If your locks have been up in a pony for the day, take your hair out and mess around with it for a bit of volume. An effortlessly casual party look!

SPRING FACE

Spring time is the best time to go all out. Go all out with show stopping jewelry, bold lip colors and cute as f*** hairstyles. Who cares what anyone else says about your aesthetic – Spring time is the time to be as carefree and as ‘IDGAF’ as you want. An in-your-face floral crown? WHY NOT? A vibrant red lip during the day? YES PLEASE.

~

FACE #1

No need to hide away your red lippies for the Spring! Wear them red lips all year round if you want to because you SLAY in it. Finish the look with statement sunglasses; the perfect accessory that says I won’t bother you if you don’t bother me.

IMG_5858

FACE #2

The classic florals in spring trend will never go out of style so it’s time to just embrace it. Channel your inner Lana Del Rey and go OTT with a floral crown and toughen your look up with a bad ass Septum. What says “I’m undecided about how I feel about Spring” more than this look?!

IMG_5865 IMG_5873

FACE #3

For those girlies who love a guaranteed head-turning Springtime look, go with some loose curls and a pair of statement sunnies. Go with a lip that lets your hair have all the glory. I mean, who can say no to being sun-safe and having hair so on point?

The easiest DIY Cut Off Shorts

It’s fair to say that everyone’s guilty of having old, outdated, so-three-years-ago pants lying around the house. Some don’t have the heart to throw them out, some say that they’ll need them one day. Whatever your excuse, grab those pants right now and grab a pair of scissors, ‘coz you’re about to get down with some serious DIY business.

IMG_5765

That’s seriously all you need. Just your pants, scissors, a piece of chalk and that hot bod of yours.

First thing you’ll need to do is shimmy into those pants and figure out how short you want to make your shorts.

IMG_5756 IMG_5757

With a piece of chalk or a pencil, mark about 2 inches longer than you want your shorts to be.

IMG_5760 IMG_5766

Now lay your pants down on a flat surface and cut the pants, using your mark as a guide.

IMG_5769

Continue onto the next leg by folding the pants in half and using the already cut leg as your guide.

IMG_5771

IMG_5773

Fold the bottom twice, or you could leave it for a relaxed, frayed look.

All done! Pair your new shorts with a crop top and some flashy jewels from Gold Soul and you’re good to go!
