The KCL Beauty Edit

Welcome to another KCL Beauty Edit! I've really loved so many of the beauty and makeup products I tried last month. There is usually at least one dud in the bunch that I reluctantly have to give a bad review, but I have something good to say about each one of these products. A few of them I very highly recommend, so grab a cup of coffee and check it all out. If you have a question about any of the products mentioned, please leave it below in the comments section. And if you don't have time to read this, you can skip ahead and listen to my video review here while you work or whatever. Enjoy!


The new skincare line I tried last month was from LHB Natural Skincare, which included a facial wash and two different facial serums. I recently posted about LHB in an anti-aging skincare routine blog and video to show how I use each of these products. Of course I started with the facial wash, which I really loved. The LHB Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash is great for any skin type…

8 Ways to Acheive Holiday Glam


There is one look I love more than Fall fashion, and that is holiday glam! As it gets closer to Christmas, there are more dressy events to attend, from holiday parties to gallas to the ballet. I definitely prefer the ballet, with my husband. It makes for a romantic date night, one for which we can get dressed up.

1. My favorite way to dress up is with a great cocktail dress. I prefer a little black dress, because it can be dressed up or down to suit the specific event. During the Christmas season however, it's the perfect time for a bold red or some holiday sparkle.

My go-to type of cocktail dress is the fit-and-flare, because it's the most figure-flattering. Though this season it's all about the statement sleeves! See the full holiday dress guide here >.


2. Of course you can't have holiday glam without some sparkle. For those intricate dressy blouses or a high-neck sweater that you can't really wear a statement necklace with, go for bold sparkly statement earrings! For a more casual sweater, you can still add a touch of glam with a pair of statement studs, like these gorgeous Kate Spade Gold Drop Earrings.


3. If however, you're wearing a cocktail dress or a dressy camisole with a lower neckline, it's the perfect time to wear a glitzy statement necklace.


4. Whatever you're wearing to a fancy holiday event, it's always the perfect time for a pretty handbag. There are several different types of clutches that look best with a cocktail dress. My favorites are opera clutches and embellished hard case clutches. For a more casual dressy look, you can go with a top-handle bag or a pretty crossbody, like this metallic ruffled crossbody.


5. If you aren't too keen on dresses, but have a wedding or special event to attend this holiday season, a dressy jumpsuit is just the thing! A jumpsuit is a bold choice, so either go with a stand-out color or fabric, like velvet or sequined, paired with a more simple silhouette; or pick a more unique cut, like this off-the-shoulder jumpsuit, in a more simple color. If you have several different events to attend, a dressy black jumpsuit, much like the little black dress, will be the most versatile, as you can dress it up or down with the right accessories.


6. For a dressy casual holiday look, my favorite combination is a dressy blouse with black pants. These beautiful jewel tones are perfect for the holidays! You can pair them with anything from black skinny pants to dressy trousers to a skirt. For a day to evening look, you can pair one with a pencil skirt and layer on a black blazer.


7. Of course none of these glam holiday looks are complete without the right shoes. I really love a great dressy sandal, like this Steve Madden Carson-R Heeled Sandal, but if it's too cold for open toe shoes where you live, you can't go wrong with a classic pair of pointed-toe pumps.


8. The finishing touch for all of these looks is the makeup! Holiday beauty is so fun and pretty. It's a time to put in a little extra effort and have fun with color, sparkle, and a bold cat eye! Shop the essentials for holiday beauty here >.
