Blogger Style: NYFW Fall 2018

NYFW has come and gone, though the beautiful street style looks continue to grace my Instagram feed, and I am loving it! I don't know how these bloggers do it...running from show to show, and add to that the parties, sponsor events, fittings, and meetings. Yet they still have time to churn out content for readers as well. Anyone who thinks blogging isn't a job knows absolutely nothing about blogging! These ladies are so inspiring, not just with their killer style, but with their self-made and much earned successes. Here are just a few of my faves and a snippet of the top looks from the concrete runway. Enjoy!





Aimee Song from Song of Style is my all-time fave. She has the best fashion week videos, and as you can see, is just so cool. I love that her style is always inspirational yet relatable. Song incorporates unique trends and top brands but styles them in a way that isn't too out there. She often has the most exquisite accessory details, as you can also see above, and i…

Two Ways to Wear Emerald Green Eyeshadow

Pantone's color of the year always influences various areas of style, like home decor, fashion, and makeup. That isn't always a good thing; tangerine tango lipstick? No thank you. The 2013 color of the year, emerald green, is a shade that looks beautiful in home decor and clothing, however it isn't the ideal shade for makeup. None the less, it is a beauty trend for 2013, so in the words of Tim Gunn, let's "make it work".

Emerald green makeup can look quite pretty if you know how to apply it and which shade to use. Nail polish is an easy one; pick a dark emerald polish and it will have the same sexy affect of black or dark purple nail polish. When applying green eyeshadow, pick a light shade of emerald if you have fair skin and a dark shade if you have medium to dark or olive-toned skin.

To apply shimmery light green eyeshadow, use an eyeshadow brush to lightly sweep across the lid up to the brow bone. Then use your finger tip to smudge any darker shade over you lid, stopping just above the crease. Use a neutral pink or brown-based shade that you would typically wear. The effect will leave you with a shimmery pop of color that will brighten you eyes without actually looking like you're wearing green.

To wear dark emerald eyeshadow, you have to create a bold evening look (as pictured above). Think smoky eye makeup in green instead of grey and black. Start how you would normally create a smoky eye, drawing a thick cat eye with black eyeliner. Then use your fingertip to smudge the eyeliner and apply a good layer of the dark emerald eyeshadow to your lids, extending up and outward slightly above the crease and to the outer corners of your eyes. Finish of the look with bold, black mascara.

Either way, it's best to pick a blue-based green, like the two darker green shades in the picture above. Skip the lime green shade. A heavy coating of neon green might look cool on the runway, but for real life you need emerald eyeshadow that is wearable.
