Now this is not a beauty trend I’m going to encourage you to include in your daily makeup routine or even for night time, but it obviously is a trend for fall 2015 and at least it’s an amazing excuse for your ruined eyeliner looks. Let it be a brushstroke at haphazard, upward facing liner, mirror eyelashes on your eyelids, harry potter streaks of lightning around your eyes or even the look you get when you scratch your eye out whilst wearing eyeshadow; the lines on/around/under your eyes should be out of line this fall. Intentionally.

Winter Survival

Avene for The Fashion Medley

Disadvantages of winter is too numerous to be counted; depression, not being able to wear what you want, easiest tasks such as going to the supermarket turning into torture, hydro bills reaching hundreds and hundreds of dollars, constant heat waves coming and going every time you enter an indoor space but one of the worst is definitely dry skin. Best case scenario your face and your hands will crack, causing an unbearable irritation and even pain at times. However there is one more thing worse than dry skin and it’s to have an oily T-zone with super dry cheeks.

All throughout my teenage years I visited countless dermatologists to find a cure and the best I could do was oil free, hypo allergenic moisturizers which were fine since they weren’t causing any irritation or acne but they were never enough to moisten entirely and prevent the flaking off. When Avène reached out to me about their new product line Xeracalm, formulated specifically for different kinds of dry skin, I was a little bit skeptical. I was always afraid to try anything that wasn’t recommended by my doctors but Avène’s reviews for every single product were so good that I had to give it a chance. The result was, least I can say, a life changing relief.

Just Cavalli Fall 2015

Or you can also be a taupe eyed girl or an orange eyed girl but blue or black seems out of picture for fall 2015 season. The tone and the amount of brown is the tricky part that makes this runway trend hard to apply IRL, personally I’d look totally washed out with a brown eye makeup but there’s no denying that it’ll be a huge beauty trend this fall. My personal favorite is Derek Lam’s subtle cateye eyeshadow or Altuzarra’s part grey part bronze look.

Loop It Like Beckham

Loop It Like Beckham

If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years of struggling with hair in general is that the easiest, EASIEST hair style is a loop ponytail. Not a regular pony, not twist updos, nothing that requires bobby pins or styling products. For the perfect loop ponytail all you need is an elastic hair tie, hair longer than 10inches and inspiration from fall 2015 runway shows, starting with Victoria Beckham.

Long Live The Brush

Long Live The Brush

Here comes something only people with frizzy hair would understand: there’s a moment after you brush-dry your hair and look at the crazy ass reflection of yourself in the mirror and think “is it just me or do I look so ridiculous that it is actually pretty cool?”. However for most people that moment of bravery ends by the time they leave the bathroom and never see sunlight, like yours truly. Sometimes my hair gets so weird I have to show my husband or whoever is around at the time, usually for fun but maybe deep down to get a validation to embrace my frizzy curls and get an applause for having such enviable, original looking hair – which almost never happens, unfortunately. But I think I found the thumbs up I was looking for thanks to beautiful Felicity Jones in February issue of Vogue UK.

Long live the comb, long live the brushed out curls! (Or else I won’t be able to live long straightening my hair every single day).
