How I Style Neon Heels – 5 Looks For All Women

Hey there munchkin.

Neon heels? What do they remind you of?

80’s?

Disco?

Loud?

Well guess what?

Loud, 80’s disco is all back in sister, but with a modern twist, as usual.

The neon heel has made a quiet entrance, with little excitement because the neon heel kind of never fully went away. For years, women were afraid of the neon heel. It was seen as an ‘attention seeking item’ or ‘hard to pull off’, but the neon heel has never been more featured in our outfits than the last year or so!

Ok, this is starting to sound like some sort of legend of the neon heel. I apologise.

On a more professional note, the neon heel shouldn’t be shied away from, but embraced. If you don’t know quite how to pull it off or what to pair with it, than read on my loves, I have a treat for you!

*Quick disclaimer: all ideas and outfits were put together by myself. Also, if you think these outfits are a little bland, that is my take on Neon heels, I think less is more!’

#1 ‘The laid back, but still in the mood’ look

When first experimenting with neon colours, it’s best to try keep the outfit quite neutral and plain. Unless you have the personality and the confidence to pull it off, don’t go mixing and matching crazy patterns and colours, you will only end up washing yourself out, which is a big no-no!

#2 ‘I’m going out’ look

This is the perfect way to show off a great tan and still look classy. Neon colours really bring out colour in the legs, while the black leather shorts neutralise the outfit, before it gets a bit colour crazy! White is an obvious choice of colour to pair with a going out outfit, easy on the eye and sophisticated. Less is always more!

#3 ‘I mean business’ look

Neon heels look great with a LBD. For a fun night out, add a gorgeous colourful clutch and your killer smile for the perfect look.

#4 This one is for my brave ladies

If you arn’t afraid of mixing colours that nobody else would think of, then this one is for you! I love matching colours that people would usually stray away from, but this royal blue/neon yellow/coral combination is fab! It may look a little scary here in a picture, but when worn on, with a good tan, it is beautiful! Trust me on this one if you are sceptical, just try on crazy colours in the store to see. You would be surprised what kind of masterpiece you would make!

#5 ‘The confident’ look

This one is my favorite out of the looks! I love this style trousers with a skinny heel, something about it just looks so flirty yet classy! Crop tops are a big thing this year, so I paired one with a gold choker and a black clutch to bring the whole look together! Perfect for a night out with the girls.

So that is all I have today for my take on neon heels! Please leave a comment if you have any other suggestions, I love to get inspiration from others!

Smashbox Full Exposure – Review!

Hi there.

Smashbox Full Exposure eye shadow palette meet the ladies, 

ladies meet the Smashbox Full Exposure eye shadow palette.

Because you are about to meet your next new BFF!

From make up fanatics, to make up I-only-wear-it-when-required girls, you will want to see this.

No really, you will.

The Smashbox palette comes with a mini mascara (which I will talk about later), the palette and a double ended brush (which I will also talk about later)

Oh, and a pretty decent mirror too, which is always good.

The palette.

The palette has a neutral turned nigh time feel about it. It consists of 7 shimmers and 7 mattes all from dark chocolate brown, to a light ebony right up to dark charcoal black.

The palette seems to me to be divided into warm tones and cool tones, which is great for mixing and matching or if you want to stick to the one colour group, and it is also great for beginners to stay to the one colour group if they are unsure how to match shades just yet.

Straight down the middle of the palette you have two neutrals, the Switzerland of the group if you will. These are just two basic nude colours for a base or blending, etc etc.

The left side are the warms. The Sahara desert and Africa if we are sticking to the country references.

This consists of 3 mattes and 3 shimmers. All beautiful. Well pigmented and blend like butter on warm toast.

Gosh I am sorry in advance about all the weird references, I’m feeling a little poetic today.

The right side are the cools. The Antarctica and north pole if you are following me.

Again as with the warms, all beautiful, well pigments and of course blend like never before.

The brush.

Well, this is where Smashbox got it all right. This brush is A-MAY-ZING!

Like no joke.

One end is for the mattes, and the other is for the shimmers. The bristles are very tough yet flexible and easy to work with and super good quality. I already cleaned it twice (and in need of a third I’d say) and they are still perfect. The brush is a good length, not too small and a nice weight.

These may seem like silly things to be pointing out, but to some people, a good brush is all the difference!

The mascara.

This mascara is the only, tiny, minor let down. In fact, it’s not even a let down really because its not bad at all, it is just, you know,

grand.

Just like OK, or fine. I wasn’t expecting a mascara (I don’t know how I missed it on the website?) so it was a nice bonus to say the least.

It isn’t bad but it didn’t blow me away either. You know, those kind of mascaras that are handy for throwing on when you don’t have time to do 4 coats and curl. It’s a good size for your purse too, I keep it in my car for those ‘I wasn’t expecting to see you!’ moments.

And last but not least, the swatches.

The moment you have all been waiting for. Now before you go all, ‘Where are the lighter colours?’ they’re there. I just have pale skin right now OK? Don’t remind me about it. 😦

I got my palette from Sephora online for $49.

http://www.sephora.com/full-exposure-palette-P383775?skuId=1575018

Pros:

Lots of variety

Cool and warm tones

Blend well

Good pigmentation

Comes with brush and mirror

I have no cons only that it is a bit big for your purse or bag, but we will get over that much!

Other than that, overall it is a great palette, awesome place to start if you are getting into make up and if you are looking to expand your collection.

10/10 from me!

Thank for reading and I hope I have helped in some way or other! Please leave a comment belox if you have any questions or if you want to become Facebook, Twitter or Insta friends, click below! 🙂

My Top 10 Spring/Summer Mani Pedi Combo’s!

Well hello there.

I just LOVE nail polish. I have a slight addiction.

But that’s OK right? At least I admitted it.

I love playing around with colour combo’s for my mani pedis, and I never repeat the same combo twice! Why bother when there are so many pretty colours to choose from?

So without further due, here are my favorite combo’s for Spring/Summer.

Beware: Drooling from the mouth may occur after seeing such beautiful colours!

10. The party goer

mani 2

Everyone loves a good glitter polish and what better way to start off the summer night party then by arriving with brighter toes than the disco ball over your head!

9. The date night

mani 3

Pink to make the boys wink, and purple because it looks good, OK?

8. The beach day

mani 1

Nothing beats a mint and white to show off that glistening tan you just got!

7. The ‘Im feeling pretty’ day

mani 4

This is my favorite combo of the season! Gorgeous, girly and dainty, what more do you want?

6. The shopping date

mani 5

The lighter the colour, the heavier the wallet. Well, I like to think so anyway.

5. The tan

mani 6

Maybe your not getting that tan as you quite hoped for? Never fear pale lady, these bright colours will help bring out any tan!

4. The adventure

mani 7

The only sight seeing you’l be doing is down at your nails because you cant take your eyes off those adorable colours!

3. The pool day

mani 8

The only thing brighter than your mani pedi will be the sun, and even at that you will be giving it a good run for it’s money!

 

2. The drama queen

mani 9

Who wears gold on their toes anyway?

A drama queen, that’s who.

1. The ‘I just wanna have fun’ day

mani 10

Don’t take glitter too seriously, especially when you just want to have fun!

Well that is all I have for now! I hope you got some inspiration from this and please come join me on facebook, twitter and instagram, we can have so much fun!
