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.

BEST NAIL POLISH

I tried several different nail po…

Wedding Inspiration: Formal Wedding in Radiant Orchid with Gold


The Bride: For a formal wedding with a radiant orchid color palette, the bride can add a colorful touch with a beautiful orchid clutch. The Melie Bianco D2538-Jamie Clutch in berry is just the right shade and has a shiny gold frame. The rich jewel tone definitely lends itself to a swanky dress with lace and embellishments. I love how the Monique Lhuillier pictured above has a gold belt to help tie the dress in with the luxe color theme. A wedding dress so formal calls for a pair or satin jeweled Badgley Mischka dressy pumps.

The Bouquet: Of course the best choice for an orchid colored wedding would be orchids, though you can incorporate many other flowers with the rich pinkish-purple shade. greenery mixed in beautifully breaks up the color. Tie it into the overall color scheme with a simple black ribbon.

The Bridesmaids: For a formal wedding, bridesmaids should have long gowns. Strapless chiffon maxi dresses with a sweetheart neckline are very trendy and photograph very well. If your wedding is a bit more casual and you want shorter dresses, here is a great knee-length option. Get any of the David's Bridal dresses in "Sangria", as it very closely resembles radiant orchid, or look for fuchsia or berry in other designer collections. If you do go with a strapless bridesmaid dress, pair it with a gold-tone statement necklace.

The Color Palette & Decor: A rich shade like orchid goes so well with gold, and you can mix in varying shades of the color. Anchor the palette with touches of black, in the men's tuxes and subtle details like in the favor packaging and table decor. The gold should most definitely be incorporated in the table decor, through gold chargers and glittering gold candelabras. The centerpieces should of course include beautiful orchid arrangements.
