Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

Last week I hosted an amazing event at the NARS Boutique at the Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace.

Myself and some of Las Vegas’ biggest influencers viewed the AMAZING Limited Edition Man Ray Collection (which I shared with you the second it launched click here to read) and we learned some pro make-up tips from NARS senior artist Julia Sohn.  Julia was trained by Francois Nars himself and is a repeat backstage at Fashion Week each season.

I wanted to share some of these hot holiday beauty tips from NARS that will really make your makeup pop this season.

Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

FOUNDATION. Most people apply too much and are just wasting product.  Julia says to start with a small amount and apply it with your fingers starting at your nose in a pat then sweep motion, taking the sweep across the face in short strokes blending all the way to hairline.  I tried this technique today and my whole face was covered perfectly with foundation using only a fraction of what I normally use.

Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

LIPS.  You all know I am a die hard red lippie gal.  The drawback to a strong red lip is that it bleeds.  It seems like no matter what you do it bleeds.  Julia has a solution.  Apply NARS Instant Line and Pore Perfector around the outside of the lip-line. It contains line and pore-filling microspheres which instantly smooth the skin’s surface while hyaluronic acid spheres gently plump to fill in lines and wrinkles.  Basically you are using it to fill the places that the lip color would bleed.  It leaves the area soft smooth and pucker-tastic.  (Yep I bought 2 of this baby right away.)

EYES.  Julia has a great trick for getting your eyes to really pop.  Whether you are winging it out or smokin’ it up, if you apply black pencil liner on the inside of your upper eyelid it will make your lashes look thicker and fuller!  Another great tip Julia had for eyes was to use bronzer to soften the eye.  Use just a fraction of bronzer to blend the edges, finish the look and warm your eyes up.  Julia used Laguna from the Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette to achieve this.

CHEEKS. Use a bronzer to contour the face and give it natural dimension.  Then add your blush between the apple and the cheekbone to create an epicenter to the cheeks then add a little blush around the temples to soften and warm up the face. Remember just touching your face with the brush brings a flush to your cheeks so when you apply blush make sure you apply a little then let it settle for a few minutes before you add more to avoid going cray cray on blush.  Julia did all of this with the Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette.

Jimmy Choo AW ’17

Jimmy Choo Forum Shops

I have been neck deep in Fall Fashion shoots for the last few months (September is coming fast) and out of everything I have been working with, for me there is one huge standout for the coming season, the AW ’17 footwear collection from Jimmy Choo.

Of course I couldn’t show these beauties from set, at least not until the magazine’s print but luckily for me Fall ’17 has finally landed at retailers so I popped into the Jimmy Choo Boutique at the Forum Shops to share with you some of my favorites from the collection.

Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director Sandra Choi’s mission for AW 2017 is “To do sexy in a new way.”

And boy oh boy did she do it!

The AW 17 collection plays with proportions and shapes in an interesting and new way.  With a mix of fabrics and textures the collection offers a little something for everyone including leopard, metallic, fringe, rhinestones, velvet, patent, satin, pop art star cut-outs and a variety of different heel heights, from low to high, stiletto to block heel.  There are tons of sexy strappy details, metal hardware embellishments and this season’s must-have, high cut shoes.

Always game for a shoe trying on sesh, I put together a little shoe-montage for you with my top picks from the collection:

Jimmy Choo AW 17 Collection

Jimmy Choo “Hustle” Black Suede Mules with Pink Galaxy Star Print and Studs.

Jimmy Choo AW 17 Collection

Jimmy Choo “Tiff” Hazelnut Leopard Print Pony and Black Calf Leather Pointy Toe Pumps

Jimmy Choo AW 17

Jimmy Choo “Hansa” Vintage Rose Suede and Nappa Leather Ankle Sandals

Jimmy Choo AW 17 Fringe Heels

Jimmy Choo “Malia” Mink Suede Sandals with Fringe Detailing

Jimmy Choo Lark Bootie

Jimmy Choo “Lark” Bottle Green Shiny Calf Leather Booties

Guys, I didn’t forget about you.

The Jimmy Choo AW ’17 mens collection is something you don’t want to miss.  In my opinion it’s their best men’s collection to date!

Focused on the idea of contrast, the mix of sartorial and edge. The collection is inspired by the band The Clash, and combines unexpected materials such a flannel to create a mash-up of style genres.  Dressy finishes are used on more casual styles and a rebel edge is added to typically conservative formal styles.   The new collection incorporates Jimmy Choo’s signature star motif in a way that is oh so polished but oh so punk.  The detailing is sheer perfection.

Getting Sweet with Links of London

Links of London Las Vegas

Something really sweet is happening over at The Forum Shops.

Last week iconic jeweler Links of London opened the doors to their fifth U.S. boutique at The Forum Shops at Caesars.

The newest U.S. store features displays that incorporate elements unique to the Las Vegas location. The brands most loved Sweetie Collection is showcased in a display reimagined to resemble a roulette table. A separate Friendship Table hosts a mix-and-match bracelet bar. An Engraving and Customization Bar — home to the brand’s made-to-order program — allows customers to custom design their charm bracelets on the spot. The boutique also offers in-house engraving, restringing and polishing.

In honor of the opening the brand has launched a new “Welcome to Las Vegas” Keepsake charm that is ONLY available at the Las Vegas Boutique!

One of Links of London’s most popular pieces is the Sweetie Bracelet.

Inspired by the candy bracelets of your childhood, the Sweetie allows you to create a bespoke bracelet with charms and sparkling diamond rondelle beads to suit your own personal style.

All of the sweetness and none of the calories!

What has me sweet on the Sweetie is that since it’s totally customizable it can adapt to any woman’s personal style.

Go edgy with mixed metals or keep it luxe and sophisticated by adding diamond rings.

Tell your story of love, luck, wishes or dreams through whimsical charms. The choices are endless!

I went with sterling silver and I think I’m going to add in some Rhodium beads to give it that edgy gunmetal feel.

Uptown with Henri Bendel

Henri Bendel Uptown Wallet

Like the rest of the world I was soooo excited to get my iphone 7plus, I mean come on that camera and portrait setting alone, right?!?!

But my excitement was quickly deflated when I realized that I could no longer fit my iphone into most of my evening bags and crossbodies.  I love the phone but even on set it has become cumbersome and doesn’t really fit into my pocket in a non-obtrusive way, which is why I am so dang excited about my latest discovery from Henri Bendel.

Yesterday I went on a marathon shopping adventure at The Forum Shops at Caesars (I can’t wait to show you all my finds in the coming weeks) and found the most adorable problem solver EVER at Henri Bendel, The Uptown Organizer Wallet.

I was invited into the store to preview all of the new pieces launching in August but I was so hyper focused on this baby I could hardly pay attention to the others- they had to drag me away kicking and screaming, lol.

So of course, I bought it and HAVE to share my find with you.

This pretty gal has ample space for credit cards (11 slots), three interior open pockets, a handy zip pocket (which is great for me to store receipts), an exterior open back pocket and drum roll please…a snap enclosure for your iphone 7plus!

Yaas ladies that’s right, that big boy nestles right in there snug as a bug in a rug.

It even has a cute little slot for lipstick!  The whole thing folds up into a chic wristlet with a double snap enclosure.

Toss it into your day bag to use as a wallet or use as a wristlet when you don’t feel like carrying a big bag!

Available now in black, sun-dried tomato, grey snake and blue ombre.


Launching August 2 two gorgeous new shades, port and mauvewood (the adorbs millennial pink shade I bought).

Pop into Henri Bendel at the Forum Shops and check this gorgeous gal out for yourself.

As if this isn’t enough motivation, they even have a ring light and a step and repeat wall for you take photos in front of!
