Summer Beauty Pick: Think Pink

Millennial Pink has been the color of the summer season, just one scroll through your Instagram feed and you’ll find pink décor, clothing, food and accessories.  This trendy-meets-girly hue has also taken a foothold in the beauty market in the form of lipsticks, eye shadows, blushes, and even perfumes.

That said; you’ll notice Millennial Pink looks different all the time.  This variation in color is the result of this season’s pink being a spectrum of shades.  It encompasses colors like Rose Quartz, Pale Dogwood, and Candy Pink, which is why the color is sometimes portrayed as dusty pink while other times you’ll find Millennial Pink as a combination of peach and beige.  According to Veronique Hyland of The Cut, “[I]t’s ironic pink, pink without the sugary prettiness …”

There is still a lot left to the summer season; summer doesn’t officially end until September 21. Remember, it’s not too late to incorporate pink your summer wardrobe. Fashion Reverie has rounded up our favorite pink beauty products along with tips on how to get the most of the color of the season!

Millenial_Pink1Dress Up Your Makeup Tray

While it’s really the packaging that gives these products their beautiful hue, they can easily serve double duty; decorating your home and enhancing your beauty routine.

We adore amarté Wonder Cream. This high tech, bio-organic moisturizer will rejuvenate your skin while preventing signs of aging.  The luxe thick cream has made a huge splash and really lives up to the hype!  We love how supple and soft it leaves our skin, while minimizing dark spots and wrinkles.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her and Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet both smell as beautiful as they look. Let these gorgeous pink bottles dress up your cosmetic tray while the delicate scents will soon become your signature fragrance. Narciso Rodriguez For Her features an intoxicating selection of hints of rose, peach, soft amber and wood, a truly elegant and sensual aroma. While, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet captures the spirit of the Dior brand, romantic, and yet playful.  Smelling of springtime, with notes of orange, peony, Damask Rose and white musk, this perfume will brighten your mood every time you spray it on.

Jill Stuart Blooming Blossom Curl Lash Mascara is actually an intricately designed silver tube, only sporting a tiny pink Swarovski crystal on the top, the special wand will instantly lift and curl your lashes like “a blossoming flower.”  The mascara comes in black and brown (no pink shades yet), but it will certainly help highlight a wash of pink across the eyelid.

Give Your Manicure an Update

There certainly isn’t a shortage of pink nail polishes; however, we especially love Zoya‘s quick drying formula and beautiful rich shades.  If you go on their website or to your local salon, you can find every color in the rainbow (and then some!)  For a dusty pink mani, try Rue, a beautiful pink shade, perfect for work and play.

Swipe Some Pink to Enhance Your Eyes

tarte’s Smolder Eyes pencils in champagne adds just a tint of pink in a beautiful metallic hue.  Pair it with a slightly bolder pink shade such as the one’s found in Lorac’s Pink Champagne Palette for the perfect eyeshadow style.  Keep it delicate and soft with just a whisper, or go bold and make a statement!

For a feminine soft look, blend soft pinks and orangey golds like makeup artist Monica Marmo did backstage at Delpozo‘s spring 2017 fashion week show. Artist Emi Kaneko also applied a soft ’80s pink from M.A.C Cosmetics not only to the eyes but also on the cheeks and lips for an all around pink glow.

Accentuate your arches with metallic strips and eyes bathed in pink pigment like the models rocked at Sabinna‘s spring 2017 show.  For more of a pop, try a bolder neon hue such as the magenta lids at Wunderkind.

The Perfect Pink Pout

Pink lipstick has been around since as far back as we can remember.  For a Millennial hue, opt for a dusty rose or a candy pink.  NYC‘s Expert Last Lipstick in Candy Rush is plenty sweet, but with a sense of maturity.  Bare Minerals‘ Moxie Lipstick in Do It All, really can do it all, keep it more natural for daytime or combine it with a smoky eye for the perfect sundown look.

Gloss it up with Dior‘s Ultra Gloss in Rose Twin Set or Rose Coquette.  Both shades add a youthful vibrance and a healthy dose of our favorite new shade.

A Touch of Blush

Just because the product is a blush, doesn’t mean you can’t wear it as a highlighter. Backstage at Asli Polat, models used pink shimmer to highlight their face and lids, which were lined with white eyeliner for emphasis.  Apply with BrushCraft‘s Oval Makeup Brush to easily get a natural and healthy flush or the perfect highlight! The beautiful shape of the brush makes it simpler now than ever!

Find multi-uses for your blush too, applying it as an eye shadow, highlighter or even DIY lip gloss (by mixing your favorite blush with a touch of Vaseline.)  After all monochromatic makeup is très chic, just look at the pink cheeks and lips at Leonard Paris.

2017 was a breakout year for Misty Copeland at American Ballet Theater (ABT). The African American ballerina made her debut in ABT’s “Don Quixote,” “Giselle,” and “Whipped Cream,” a huge accomplishment for any ballerina.

On the heel of these historic debuts, Copeland is the new global spokesmodel for Estee Lauder’s fragrance ‘Modern Muse.’ Copeland will be featured in short film teaching young dancers in ballet class that accompanies the fragrance’s video, print and television campaign, asking the question, “What inspires you.”

“My two passions are dance and giving back, and I love passing on knowledge to the next generation,” she said in a statement in a recent fashionnetwork.com article. “I also have a strong connection to the scents I wear when I perform. The Modern Muse campaign is the perfect way to see another side of my story.”

“Misty has challenged the status quo to achieve her dreams and inspired so many young women along the way,” said Stephane de La Faverie, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder, with the brand’s Style and Image Director Aerin Lauder adding: “Misty is the perfect representation of today’s modern muse.”

Zoe and YSL

Zoe Kravitz has a new job. She is the new global makeup ambassador for YSL Beautè. Kravitz first teamed up with YSL Beautè in 2016 starring a short film, “Beyond the Light,” that focused on her pre-stage makeup routine.

“YSL Beauté has always been one of my favorite brands,” said Kravitz in a statement. “Their ability to combine the chicest of styles with a raw edge has always been to me one of the best ways to express yourself through fashion and beauty. Nothing is forced, nothing is fake but everything is bold, strong and unafraid.”

2017 is turning out to be a triumphant year for Zoe Kravitz. Kravitz is a part of Tiffany & Co’s 2017 fall campaign and stars in the summer hit “Girls Trip.”

NYFW: Men’s Spring 2018 Trend Report: Rock It or Leave on the Runway: 90s Hip-Hop Revival

In the 1990s, the relationship between fashion and hip-hop was a marriage of dissimilar bedfellows that found ways to reap huge financial benefits. Over the last two decades that rocky marriage has served where other fashion unions have dissipated. Between the increasing roster of hip-hop stars attending The Met Gala, to rappers like Lil Yachty becoming the creative director of Nautica, this seems to be a romance that will withstand the test of time. 90s hip-hop trends were apparent on this season’s runway at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, but every trend isn’t always a must. Fashion Reverie is here to let you know what consumers should be rocking, or what some consumers should leave on the runway

Dangling Belts

Landlord, which usually takes its inspiration from 90s hip-hop, accessorized numerous pieces in their collection with brightly colored belts. The look was utilitarian, but somehow impractical. What purpose could there be for wearing a belt so long, aside from it looking cool? Dangling belts can be an attention getter, but not the right kind of attention. Young hip-hop stars like Lil Uzi Vert can pull this off, but it’s not for everybody. Every season, there is always something urban designers have to do, whether it’s baggy pants, or shoulder pads and oversized sleeves, and this season it happened to belts, but it’s a miss with this time around.

Verdict: Leave it on the runway

Reconstructed Shirts

If there is one easy way to make a shirt more interesting without getting too pattern crazy, deconstruct it and then reconstruct it and make it more avant-garde and edgy. Brands like Woodhouse added oversized pockets to simple navy tee shirts, and menswear designers like Luar took it to a whole other level completely destroying shirts to add details like layers of neckties where fabric would normally be. This is one of those trends that should be approached with caution.

Don’t go so overboard that your living situation is questionable, looking like a homeless person who owns a sewing machine. The Woodhouse effect is the best approach when adopting this trend.

Verdict: Rock it (but with subtlety)

Today’s Hip-Hop Stars Are Wearing … Tracksuits

While 90s nostalgia was the big craze this season, designers were also thinking about what today’s hip-hop celebs are wearing. Track jackets are a staple piece once again, as seen with brands like Head of State. Denim, which for a few years seemed to be losing its luster, is bigger and bolder than ever. While hip-hop stars have been going flashier than ever on the red carpet, it’s those staple pieces that everyone will want to curate. Stars like A$AP Rocky and Pharrell are known to regularly rock a simple, yet tasteful track jacket. With hip-hop now the world’s most listened to music genre, who better to take fashion cues from.

Verdict: Rock it

Bold Colors

The brighter the better was the theme for many designers this season. While menswear has long been cautious when it comes to bold color palettes, this season designers went as crazy as the 96 crayon Crayola box. Monochromatic ensembles will be big for spring/summer 2018 as evidenced by brands like C2H4 Los Angeles, who presented neo-futuristic monochromatic orange and blue ensembles. Red will also be popular for spring 2018, and appeared in the runways and presentations of designers including Carlos Campos, Feng Chen Wang and swimwear brand Katama. Men need to stop shying away from color, somber dressing is out, and it’s great that fashion is pushing men to be more daring.

Verdict: Rock it

Editors’ Pick: Yandy and the MISS TEEN USA Pageant

Collages1360Pageants are no longer what they once were. That applies locally and nationally. For one thing there is been a name correction, they are no longer called beauty pageants; they are competitions. Also, the contestants no longer have to have Pepsident smiles, talk about world peace, and have perfect Barbie-like bodies.

Add to that the elimination of swimsuit competition; something that the MISS TEEN USA® pageant put in place last year. The swimsuit competition is now a fitness competition featuring athletic wear­—to empower women who lead active, purposeful lives. And again, this season Yandy has been selected to supply the athletic wear.

Miss_Teen_USA_2018

Miss Indiana and Miss Oregon, respectively

This year, the contestants featured ten assorted styles made by Yandy that include transitional sports bras, workout pants with innovative moisture wick technology and fashion-forward training tank tops with the goal of allowing contestants to be true to themselves and their own style choice. Yandy made all the styles worn during MISS TEEN USA® available for immediate purchase by viewers at yandy.com/2017-miss-teen-usa.

Yandy is a retailer of sexy specialty apparel for real women. We strive to be the authority on what makes women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities look and feel confident and sexy in their own skin. Our customer—the Yandy Girl—lives on trend. Her passion is for the look, not the label. She trusts Yandy for the latest affordable looks in everyday intimates, lingerie, swimwear and costumes. The Yandy Girl lives out loud and is unapologetically connected with her mind, her body and her own brand of sexy. Visit yandy.com.

Fall 2017 Campaign Feature: K-Swiss’ Generation-K

Collages1347

Elliot Tebele

In a very saturated market, how does a company give distinction and viability to their brand, particularly if it is a footwear brand? Well, K-Swiss has found a way to do just that; set itself apart from the Reeboks, the Nikes, and the Adidas.

Understanding that millenials and Generation X identify more with clothes that are comfortable, functional, reflect a lifestyle, and utilitarian in nature as opposed to clothes that connote wealth, prosperity, and luxury, K-Swiss has launched the Generation-K collection. The Generation K collection features three new hero sneaker styles for the season, combining signature K-Swiss design cues, with modern athletic styling. Described as ‘sophisticated athletic’, the Generation K collection blends athletic comfort with minimalist clean profiles, designed for K-Swiss’ modern muse, the young entrepreneur, to be worn from the boardroom to the street.

“The origin of this campaign came from a consumer insight, that today’s youth aspire to be CEO’s more than athletes or celebrities, said Barney Waters, President of K-Swiss in a recent press release.  “Entrepreneurs aren’t wearing suits, these days it’s t-shirts, jeans and sneakers.” … “Today’s youth don’t wake up dreaming of running a 6-minute mile, or dunking a basketball, they dream of having their own brand or their own company.  It’s a new aspiration of this generation, to be the CEO, to be the boss.”

Coco and Breezy

Coco and Breezy

With the assistance of Gary Vee, New York Times–bestselling author and CEO and co-founder of VaynerMedia, K-Swiss identified young entrepreneurs who are media influencers in their own right to spearhead the Generation-K campaign. These young entrepreneurs bridge the cultural gap between millienials and Generation X, speaking the political and cultural vernacular of K-Swiss’ target audience.

The most well known young entrepreneurs featured in the Generation-K campaign and video is Coco and Breezy. Coco and Breezy (Corinana and Brianna Dotson) launched their iconic eyewear collection in 2009, making each handmade piece personally. Within a short amount of time their eyewear was seen on major celebrities and entertainers. These twins have become of mainstay of New York fashion scene.

Anwar Carrots

Street wear designer Anwar Carrots is fast becoming a legend in the street fashion scene. While balancing collaborations with major retailers and brands over the years, this street wear powerhouse launched two separate clothing lines, including the self-named Carrots. Today, Carrots’ store is the leading online destination for men’s street style with a global following.

NYFW defections

New York Fashion Week: Men’s experienced lots of defections for its spring 2018 collections. Following suit, designers are already choosing not to show during New York Fashion: The Shows (NYFWS) that is less than seven weeks away.

So far, Narciso Rodriquez joins several prominent fashion designers that will not show during NYFWS. Tommy Hilfiger and Altazurra are skipping NYFWS for Paris and London, while Ralph Lauren will stage his show out of the garage of his Bedford, New York home, using a “See Now, Buy Now” format. Monique Lhuillier, Rodarte, and Proenza Schouler opted to show their spring 2018 collections during the Paris couture shows in early July.

Narciso Rodriquez will show his spring 2018 collection on the first day of NYFWS, September 6, with private appointments.

Michael Kors expands

In a somewhat surprising move, Michael Kors is acquiring Jimmy Choo for approximately 1.35 billion. What is surprising about this acquisition is the Michael Kors brand has been struggling for several months, closing its online retail distribution center in North Carolina.

In spite of the acquisition, several key top-level executives will maintain their positions at Jimmy Choo. Pierre Denis will continue in his role as chief executive officer and Creative Director Sandra Choi will continue to lead the creative and design teams. This acquisition is expected to grow Jimmy Choo in global markets and expand the brand into other accessory markets.

Birthday girl

To celebrate her 20th birthday, Kylie Jenner is launching a special of ‘Birthday Collection’ via her Kylie Cosmetic beauty brand. According to an Instagram post, the collection is set to launch on August 1 on the brand’s website prior to Kylie’s birthday on August 10.

The ‘Birthday Collection’ will include two of the new ‘Ultra Glow’ highlighters, which come in gold and pink shades. Also included are four different makeup brushes, an ‘I Want It All’ palette of highlighters and eye shadows, and, of course, several of the lip colors saw her first break into the cosmetics industry. A ‘Birthday Book’ pressed powder palette will also form part of the celebratory haul. All products from the ‘Birthday Collection’ will be packaged in pink-themed, sparkly purse.

Neiman_Marcus_Stores

Job cuts

Neiman Marcus plans to cut 225 jobs due to a change in consumer buying habits and to deal with its nearly $5 billion buyout debt. This restructuring plan will hopefully help Neiman Marcus maintain its status as a high-end, luxury retail destination.

Neiman Marcus is also re-evaluating its Last Call outlet division. Neiman Marcus has already closed 3 of its Last Call stores with 37 remaining open. In early 2017 there was much talk of the sale of the luxury giant; however, in June, Neiman Marcus decided to initiate a restructuring deal and not sale the company.

Kendall Jenner has really stepped up her game. Fashion Reverie has been following her supermodel ascent since she hit the runways at the tender age of 15 during New York Fashion Week in Sherri Hill’s runway show.  At the time not a good look, wooden walk. And for the first couple of years, same face in every editorial and campaign.

That is no longer the case!! Kendall Jenner shows her growth at the Los Angeles premiere of “Valerian” wearing a skintight Carmen March 2017 black mini ruched dress with off-the-shoulder neckline, beautifully accessorized in Djula black diamond feather earrings and Le Vian black diamond stackable rings.

We all know that Kendall was there to support gal pal Cara Delevingne, but Kendall turned the red carpet out. She was all legs, legs, and more legs!!
