Happy first week of spring! Flowers are blooming (so are my allergies lol) and the weather is finally warming up so we can wear Spring 2017 trends. I am always excited to try new, seasonal trends. If you read my blog often, you know my philosophy is to save on trendy items and spend more on classic items. The easiest way to make your look more on trend is with makeup!
Beauty, just like fashion, gets new trends of it’s own every season.We see makeup looks change very often. I have my everyday makeup routine but to make my look more updated, I add a trend or two that fits my style. This season’s trend that I’ve been adding is rose colored makeup! I usually stick to light, natural colors for my makeup. So this trend fit right in with my style.
Pixi by Petra sent me their new Hello Rose makeup set and it was just what i needed for a spring look. It includes a lip gloss, glow booster and blush/highlight combo. By adding just these three items, it gave me a fresh spring update to my routine. Below is a review of each item and how I added it to my makeup routine.
Spring 2017 Beauty Trends: Rose Colored Makeup
1.Glow Booster in PinkPearl
This is a rose gold glow enhancing lotion that can be mixed with your foundation or worn alone as a highlighter. It also adds hydration which I love because I have dry skin ( read my dry skin tips HERE). I’ve been using it as a highlighter on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose.
2.Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold
This is a Rose and Gold blush duo. You can wear them alone or mix them together for that extra glow. The colors are very sheer especially on my darker skin tone ( see swatches above for reference) . I wear the rose color to give me a light wash of color on my cheeks. I use a little bit of the gold color on the inner corners of my eye to make them appear brighter.
3. LipLift Max in Sheer Rose
I really love that glossy lips are back in style because my lips were to dry for the matte lip trend. This lip gloss has a minty, tingly sensation that also plumps your lips. I already have full lips but I like the plumping action because it helps fill in the fine lines. For day I wear this alone and at night I layer it over my lipstick.
You can buy this Pixi by Petra Set HEREor at your local target for only $25! I love that you can update your existing beauty look by just using this set.
Here are a few rose colored beauty products to try:

If you’ve read my last few blog posts, you know that I’ve been showing you ways to style a little black dress. I wanted to celebrate the final post in this series by hosting a giveaway with a few of my blogger friends! At the end of this post, you’ll find instructions on how to enter to win a Pink Gucci Marmont Mini Bag. It’s seriously so gorgeous!
In the 2 previous posts in this series, I showed you how I like to style a little black dress for casual and dressy occasions. Today I am showing you how to style an LBD for trendy occasions. Think cocktails at the newest rooftop bar in town or a fun launch party. To make a black dress work for these events, you should find one with updated on trend elements.
Ruffles, polka dots and mesh details are BIG trends for spring 2016! I found this dress for under $20 HERE. This dress has the perfect amount of trendy details that make it appropriate for a trendy event. It pairs perfectly with a pair of lace up heels (a big shoe trend for 2017). If you want to add accessories I’d go for simple rings or bracelets because the dress has a lot of detail at the top.
Here are a few Little Black Dresses under $30 that are perfect for a trendy occasion:
This week I am teaming up with an amazing group of ladies to bring you an INCREDIBLE giveaway. One lucky reader will win a Gucci Marmont Mini Bag in Pink.
Happy International Women’s Day! Thank you to all the women past and present that have fought to allow me to be able to do the things I can today. I am so grateful that so many women have fought to give us all the rights we have now. I want to thank every woman that is part of the Le Fab Chic community! Your support is so amazing and I love being able to share this space with you.
Since we are celebrating women today, I wanted to dress like one of my style icons, Audrey Hepburn. I love her classic style. When I think of Audrey and her iconic character Holly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the first thing that comes to mind is a little black dress. In my previous post for the Little Black Dress series, I showed you how to style a LBD for casual occasions (read it HERE). Today I am showing you how to style a LBD for dressy occasions.
Happy Friday! It’s finally warm and sunny here again in LA. It’s a great change from the rainy weather we’ve had lately. I’m so excited because I can finally wear some of my spring dresses.
A little black dress is a must have in any closet! There’s a LBD for every occasion. Over the next week, I’ll be showing you 3 Little Black Dress types for different occasions. Today’s style is casual. This look is perfect for brunch, shopping and wherever else the day may take you.
I love subscription boxes. It’s like a Christmas gift to yourself each month. They’re a great way to #TreatYoSelf! Subscription boxes are also a great way to try new products and find new favorites. My favorite subscription boxes are beauty boxes. I love discovering new beauty products!
GLOSSYBOX is a monthly subscription box that features amazing beauty products for only $21 a month. That’s less than a new foundation! You get 5 beauty products in each box. The products are a mix of sample sizes and full sized products. I tried the February 2017 GLOSSYBOX. Here are the products I received in my box:
