Lip-Wear Lowdown

Hey Bratz fanz, Cloe here to give you a lesson in luscious lip-wear! Do you know the difference between lip-gloss, lipstick, lip stain and lip balm? There are so many options for the perfect pout that it can get confusing. I’m here to help you understand it all! Let’s begin!

Jade's perfectly pink, plummy pout!

Lipstick: Lipstick comes in many different colors, from shades of pink and red to nudes, corals and plums. You can go for a natural look or pick an intense shade depending on how you’re feeling. Here are my top tips for applying lipstick:

  1. Lip liner is important if you’re experimenting with dark shades like red. Pick a matching lip liner and trace over the natural line of your lips. Don’t use lip liner when applying light colors.
  2. Use a lip brush to smooth on lipstick within the natural line of your lips.
  3. Blot! Get a piece of tissue paper and blot off excess color by smacking your lips together.

I love a luscious lip gloss!

Lip gloss: I’m a total lip gloss addict! I think I have like 7 in my purse right now, lol! When you want something easy to apply with a high-shine, go for lip gloss. They come in lots of colors, they go on smooth and they leave your lips glistening! Just glide onto your lips and go!

Lip stain: Stains give a wash of color to your lips without the shine of gloss or the strong hue of lipstick. They’re super long lasting and perfect for all-day color without the worry of reapplying. They usually come in the form of a felt tip marker. My tip for applying lip stain is to draw the line of your lips first then color in the rest. So cute, so kissable! Muah!

Lip balm: These are the easiest to wear and come in lots of fun flavors! Lip balms are made to moisturize and protect lips. There are even tinted lip balms if you want to add some extra color. My favorite is cherry flavor with pink tint.

Now that you’ve got the lip-wear lowdown it’s time to try new things! If you normally go for lip balm, try lip gloss instead! If lip gloss is your go-to lip-wear then experiment with lipstick! Being a fashionista means always trying new things!

Hot Trend: How to Wear Colored Denim

 

Hi Bratzies!

Colors are in this season and they’re popping up all over the place… even in denim! Celebrities like Rihanna and Fergie have been spotted rockin’ colorful jeans in magazines and models have been strutting them down the runways. I’ll share with you the secret to sporting this stylish trend and looking fabulous!

Blue jeans will never go out of style. Whether they’re boot cut, straight leg, flared or skinny, denim is here to stay! But why stop at blue when there are so many colors in the rainbow? This season jeans are showing up in a variety of colors from vibrant red to sunny yellow and they’re easy to dress up or down.  I like dressing up my pink skinny jeans with a metallic top and dark vest.

I love wearing my pink skinny jeans!

Here are a few of my style tips for wearing colored denim:

  • Pick the right fit: Most colored denim are skinny jeans, but I’ve also seen them in boot cut and straight leg styles. Pick the cut and size that compliments your body. You don’t want to be uncomfortable or look like a brightly colored fashion faux pas!
  • Play with patterns: Wear yellow denim with a leopard top or coral denim with a flower print top. As long as the pattern contains one similar color to the denim you’ll look fashionable and fierce.
  • Structured blazers: Pair your denim with a blazer to create a polished yet fun look. A white and navy striped top with a navy blazer goes great with red denim.
  • Neutrals: You can’t go wrong with light rosy pink jeans, a white top and khaki blazer. Or you can try berry-purple jeans and black blouse.
  • Color blocking: Color blocking is still very in and works well with this trend. Pick two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel and you’re guaranteed a perfect match. Royal blue jeans and an orange top go great together.

 Now go on and be colorful with these tips in mind! Have fun with it and never be afraid to be daring with your style.

Neon isn’t just for the runway!

Hi dollz!

Jade here welcoming you to our brand new Trends Blog! I’m so excited to be the first to post on here! I’ve got your spring fashion forecast—it includes heavy showers of bright fun color! Neon is in for spring and we’re totally rockin’ this trend from head to toe. We found ways to incorporate neon into our hair, shoes and clothes. We don’t mind turning heads with our shockingly bright outfits! This trend was spotted all over the runways of New York Fashion Week and now all the fashion mags and blogs are buzzing about it.

I'm not afraid to go neon!

While we are brave and bold, we know not everyone shares our same level of passion for fashion. Since I am the fashion guru of the group I made a list of some other ways you can sport the neon trend without going all out!

1. Nails: Paint your fingers and toes a neon shade of pink, green, yellow or orange!

2. Jewelry: Add some funk to your look with a bright necklace, earrings or bracelet.

3. Shoes: Lace your sneakers up with neon laces. You’ll stand out!

4. Layers: Wear a neutral tone like black and layer a neon tank top underneath. You’ll show just a peek of neon without going over-the-top.

5. Hair: Imitate our neon hair by adding a few neon hair extensions. Get the clip -on kind so you can switch the color anytime you want without damaging your locks.

Stay Stylish,
