KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Little Purple Dresses & What to Wear Them With


Last year before Valentine's Day, I featured little pink dresses and little red dresses. I'm still amazed at how many views these posts get compared to everything else on the site. We ladies love our little dresses I suppose. And while I still think it's great to have a standard little black dress, it's nice to mix things up and get some color. This year I've got purple on the brain. The rich, dark pinks and fuchsias are still very hot this year, but in case you haven't already heard, radiant orchid is the it color for 2014. Much like the flower, the color orchid ranges in many different shades. As long as you get a purple with some pink undertones, you've got radiant orchid. Think fuchsia with a bit more purple.

It's easy to see in both of the layouts above that this shade of purple works well on just about any skin tone, which makes it an ideal color for a bridesmaid dress.

There are a few different options when it comes to accessorizing a radiant orchid dress. It look great with either gold or silver. If you go with silver, you can add in some white with the shoes or clutch. If you pair it with gold accessories, you can add on black shoes or a black clutch. You could color block with pink or with cool tones like blue, but metallics are very hot for spring and summer 2014. I'd go with gold.
