Hottest Summer Fashion

Hottest Summer Fashion

Happy Monday!!

I hope you all are having a wonderful day and had an amazing weekend! Summer is here which means it is time to show off those bodies you have worked so hard for all year! If you fell off (because who can resist pizza) its ok this season is all about loose fitting clothes too. Prints, lace, bold solids, and mix match prints are some of my favorites. I am loving the houndstooth and leopard prints together. It is definitely a trend that can transition into the Fall and Winter months.

NEVER feel like you cannot wear a trend because it is not what you wear but HOW you wear it. If you are feeling like you do not have the confidence to wear a trend check out my confidence tips HERE. These tips are sure to give you the boost you need! Remember you are unique and awesome!

Below are some of my favorite Hottest Summer Fashion styles seen on the runway! Enjoy! XOXO






 I have to say Zuhair Murad (all above) is one of my favorite designers this season. His pieces are amazing I hope to wear them in the future.




This two tone jacket from the Zac Posen collection is a must have for this Summer and Fall.

A printed maxi dress is perfect for those days you didn't have time to shave...we all have those days right? 


This pink skirt and shirt OMG!!!! I need this in my life, I do not know where I will wear this but I NEED this!!  
The yellow jacket makes this outfit look effortless and chic! I love pieces that can make an outfit a instant 10. 


Prints, prints, prints! So in love with these combos! 



A fashionista can never go wrong in All White Everything


This is such a cute casual look. The lace bomber jacket is also a great transitional piece. 



I hope you enjoyed my favorite looks! If you want the Lux for Less version please let me know below.

~Baked And Beautiful~

~Baked And Beautiful~

Hello Beautiful PL's!! 
(Love the packaging)

I hope you all are having a great summer! To start out the new season BH Cosmetics launched a new eyeshadow palette: Baked and Beautiful. The palette includes 20 baked eyeshadows that range from gold to black. The bottom 5 eyeshadows can be blended together or used separately. So it is like having 25 eyeshadows!!! 


Apply dry or wet.

Here are the swatches with inside light:

 Here are the swatches with outside light:
(it is weird how different my skin looks outside)

Pros: 
  • The eyeshadows are very pigmented. 
  • They are easy to blend.
  • The texture is very soft.
  • The palette is perfect for travel. 
  • They show beautifully outside and last for about 8 hours before you need to reapply.
  • Can be applied wet to appear more vibrant. 
  • The palette was only $11. (what a steal)

Cons:
  • The blue color was a little chalky when applied dry but when applied wet it is perfect.

Summer Beauty Hacks

Summer Beauty Hacks

Happy Summer!!!

I am so excited that Summer has finally arrived! I am ready for all the family barbeques, pool parties, beach trips, and my birthday. However, I live in Alabama and it gets extremely hot so I have to make sure my skin and body are protected. With this in mind I thought I would share my summer hacks. These hacks have saved me every summer from having mud face, dry hair, and dry skin. Let me know in the comments below which one you tried and liked. :)

Hack #1
Face Moisturizer + 1 drop of foundation = DIY BB Cream/ tinted moisturizer
This will keep your skin looking healthy but will also cover all your blemishes.

Hack #2
Thick hair product + 1 drop of hair oil+ 1 spritz of water = makes product thinner for thin hair or if you dont want to weigh your hair down.

Hack #3
Foundation + Face oil= glowing skin
Be careful with this hack if your are naturally oily. 

Hack #4
Coconut oil + 1 egg + 1 banana + 1/2 lemon = healthy summer hair 
You may use more if you need more product. Leave this in your hair for 30-45 minutes and wash out. Style as desired. Your hair will be soft and smell delicious. 

Hack #5
Brown sugar + favorite body oil = exfoliator
Exfoliate your skin to keep it glowing, prevent from heat bumps and ingrown hairs. Also, exfoliate before shaving to make skin smooth as butter.

Summer Nail Polish Colors

Summer Nail Polish Colors

Hello Beautiful PL's!!!



Happy Wednesday!! Only 4 more days until SUMMER- concerts, pool parties, bbq's and much more fun. This season is all about bright neons and pastels. If you are a nail polish lover/junkie then you need these Summer Nail Polish Colors! These colors have been raved in all of the magazines and have been seen on the runway. They will go perfect with any party dress or bikini. Wear one color or get creative and make designs. Keep scrolling to see this season's hottest shades. 


~1~

Essie~ Private Weekend ($8)
This white shade is perfect it can be worn alone or used as a base to make other shades appear neon! (just gave you a beauty hack!) This is the perfect color to show your creativity, add neon polka dots for a fun festive design.

~2~
 China Glaze~ Daisy Know My Name ($4.50)
This neon yellow screams look at me and lux! It is great to add as your pop of color with your summer outfit.

~3~
Salon Perfect~ Traffic Cone ($3.98)
This is the brightest orange that I have found at the drugstore! It is perfect to wear by the pool or to the beach! It does not matter what skin tone you are this will look so pretty on your finger nails and toes! The only downside of the Salon Perfect polishes are they dry with a matte/flat finish. This may be perfect for some but if you like a shiny finish just add a top coat and voila!

~4~
OPI~ To Infinity & Blue-yond ($12.50)
This summer it is all about having the blues! (well shades of blue) Pick up a blue nail polish, eyeliner or eyeshadow and you are ready for summer. A pop of blue is definitely a must have for summer. 

~5~
Wet n Wild~ Candy-Vicious ($1.89)
How can we discuss Summer Nail Polish Colors on PinkLuxpl without a shade of pink! This is one of the new colors for summer from Wet n Wild.  This is so exciting because it is the perfect bright pink shade. The best thing about this nail polish besides the color is the price, only $1.89!

Top 5 Face Moisturizers for Summer

Top 5 Face Moisturizers for Summer

Happy Monday Beautiful PL's!!



I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to have a successful week! Summer is around the corner and with this hot season dry skin, irritated skin and blemishes occur. We all hate bad skin but some of us don't know how to stop it from happening every summer. One of the most important beauty products to have on your counter top is a face moisturizer preferably one that has SPF. The moisturizer helps keep the skin hydrated and prevents breakouts such as heat bumps or acne caused from sweat filling up the pores. The Top 5 Face Moisturizers for Summer are listed below. All products can be found at your local drug store. 


#1
CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30 ($11.99)
This moisturizer is great for those with normal to dry skin. The consistency is not thick or greasy so it will not feel like it is clogging up your pores. The SPF 30 protects from UVA and UVB rays from the sun and other sources of UV radiation such as your computer screen or fluorescent lights. 

#2
Neutrogena Gel Moisturizer ($19.99)
Great for those who suffer from dry skin or oily skin.

This is the perfect moisturizer to put on after face after you have spent the day in the pool. Your skin is dry from the chlorine and this moisturizer will instantly quench the skin. Once applied on the skin it will hydrate for 48 hours! The formula is very light weight and applies to the skin very smoothly. This mousier is not oily or greasy so it makes it great for oily skin beauties! 


#3
Clean & Clear Advantage Oil Free Acne Moisturizer ($6)

This will be the best $6 you have ever spent if you have acne or just minor breakouts. The moisturizer is lightweight and non-greasy it has 0.5% Salicylic Acid to help control and prevent acne blemishes. Use in the morning and at night for best results. This is Lux approved! 

#4 
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 ($13.50) 
This a great moisturizer for my beauties with sensitive skin. (It is also available for other skin types) This is the best of the best! It is a great daily moisturizer, it has SPF 50, and prevents premature lines and wrinkles caused by the sun! The moisturizer protects skin from UVA and UVB rays. It is not a thick or oily consistency which means it is great for all skin types.

#5
Eucerin Redness Relief Daily Perfecting Lotion SPF 15 ($14.59)
If you suffer from redness on your face on a daily basis then this moisturizer is perfect for you! Most ladies have redness in the T-zone of the face which can be irritating. The subtle green neutralizers cancel all redness and relief the skin of discomfort. The Eucerin Redness Relief has SPF 15 which protects from UVA and UVB damaging sun rays. This moisturizer is great for all skin types.

How to Build Confidence

How to Build Confidence

Hello Beautiful PL's


You are probably wondering why the topic How to Build Confidence is being discussed on a beauty and fashion blog. Having confidence in ones self is important before applying makeup or wearing that beautiful dress. 

Have you ever worn that perfect dress or that perfect lipstick color but you felt like it wasn't enough or you still felt ugly? You are told your are beautiful but YOU don't feel confident. Even the prettiest girl can have low confidence. These tips will help you build confidence and help you remember that you are BEAUTIFUL inside and out! 

Tip #1 Self Love
Say "I LOVE YOU" to yourself! Stop reading, get up, look in the mirror and say those words. Yes, that's right talk to yourself. Everyday we tell others that we love them but we forget to tell ourselves. Having self love is the most important type of love. If we do not love ourself how will we love another human? Learn what you like to do and start doing it. What is your favorite movie, food, show, vacation spot or bible verse?

Tip #2 Be Positive
Pick 3 things that you love about yourself. It can be your lips, toes, or how you love helping others. Remember those 3 things every time you start to feel like you are not confident. 

Tip #3 Step out on Faith
Apply for that job position, wear that dress or bright color eyeshadow! When you step out of your comfort zone you find new interest and build confidence. 

Tip #4 No Worries
Stop worrying about what others think and live your life. Remember those 3 things you love about yourself and continue your day. Someone will always be negative but that is just a sign that they lack confidence. 

Tip #5 Medium or Large
Don't worry about what the tag says but how it fits your body. Everyone is unique so certain pieces will fit different. Learn what material looks great on your body not Beyonce or Taylor Swift. Look at others for ideas not to compare to ourselves. This is one of the biggest mistakes we as women make everyday. 

Tip #6 Complete Goals
Write a list of short term goals and long term goals, pick one and start on your journey to confidence. Use this template to figure out what you need to do first to complete your goals. Completing your goals will make you feel great on the inside and show that you are awesome!! :)

Tip#7 Start Moving
Being active is great way to clear your mind from negative thoughts. Plus it will help you get in those skinny jeans, if that is one of your goals that will make you feel confident. 

I hope these 7 steps help you gain the confidence you desire. Remember you are awesome and unique! XOXO

Scents From Heaven Candles Review

Scents From Heaven Candles Review

Hello Beautiful PL's

(Photo: © Scents from Heaven 2014)
I wanted to share with you a recent discovery of a great luxurious soy candle company. Usually, I only purchase Bath and Body Works candles but they will have to take the back seat until my Scents from Heaven candles burn out. The Pink Moscato and Vanilla Butter Cream candles from Scents from Heaven smell AMAZING and they are very long lasting. You can chose to purchase the 8oz candle for $10 or the 12oz candle for $15. There are 11 delightful scents to choose from and 2 "for him" scents. The scents include: Tropical Fruit, Island Mango, Watermelon Lemonde, Heavenly Places, Peach Bellini, Vanilla Lavender, Warm Spice, Caribbean Coconut, Beach Behavior, Pink Moscato and Buttercream. The "for him" scents include: Urban Cowboy and Black Tie. 


Pink Moscato is a playful combination of sweet strawberries, ripe raspberries, citrus peel and sparkling pink moscato is a relaxing treat to wine down with.. It would be the perfect candle to burn while taking a bath. You can also use the oil from the candle as a massaging oil. When the candle is completely cooled but the oil has not turned back to solid apply on your body. Its like having a two in one product! 

(Pink Moscato)

Vanilla Butter Cream is a rich blend of fresh churned butter, sugar, and creamy vanilla bean makes this candle a real treat! This is a favorite and makes your house smell like fresh baked cookies! Who doesn't like the smell of fresh baked cookies? Burn this candle when you are having guest to make a great impression and it also makes your house seem relaxing.
