Chic Little Devil Style House

Ola Lovelies,

This morning, while sorting through my emails for the blogazines, I saw some cute little pieces courtesy of H&M and I realized that an outfit would have looked great with my fave pair of espadrille shoes from Steve Madden, but then remembered that I had thrown them out due to unidentified gook…

Well, back to trending…check out CDL’s Style House and tell me what you think!

Let’s Tango! The True Beauty Of Color.

Hello Lovelies,

One of the coolest collabs that’s paving the industry (Tangerine) is the Sephora and Pantone® newly founded relationship – to change how you wear, feel and think about color. In fact, you can check out the buzz about the partnership, including color forecasting, trends, color matching tools, and seasonal product collections:

“As the world’s color authority for nearly 50 years, partnering with a world-renowned beauty retailer like Sephora just made sense,” said Lisa Herbert, Vice President of the Fashion, Home and Consumer Division at Pantone. “Together we bring fashion-forward color trends, innovative marketing and technology know-how to beauty customers, instilling the confidence and creativity to choose cosmetic colors that suit their every mood.”

Tangerine Tango Takeover!

To celebrate the launch, Sephora + Pantone Universe present the first-ever Color of the Year beauty collection featuring the 2012 Color of the Year, Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango. Each item in the limited edition collection celebrates Tangerine Tango, from universally flattering blushes to whimsical faux eye lashes.

Spice Up Hair This Summer With Combre

Hi Lovelies,

I wanted to add some sizzle to your summer beauty makeover! There’s a hot new hair color trend that is steaming up the beauty wave!

“For women who desire a more natural color, or those who aren’t exactly sure if they want to go lighter or darker, copper… Combre is ideal for a subtle change,” says colorist Dana Ionato of Sally Hershberger Downtown.

For my blonde and brunettes, and those beauty mavens who are thriving for the more “dramatic” and bold statements…this is an amazing way to kick up your hair’s color just in time for that flawless beach body you are all working on right now! ;-)

Combre adorn a bright or deep brown copper base fading to a lighter shade from the roots to the ends, or vise versa. FYI…Butterscotch, golden copper and apricot versions of Combre can be seen on trendsetting celebs like Blake Lively. And did I mention that Combre compliments most skin tones? How often do we like a color but it’s not for us?

Brunettes like A-listers such as Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria, Rachel Bilson and Jessica Biel are able to keep their deeper, darker copper-brown roots with lighter, brighter ends. With a rich chestnut color layered over a lighter shade to add contrast, gives a sexy-edge appeal, while keeping dimension and adding a new twist that is sure to turn “green-eyed” heads everywhere.
