How To Wear Pink Accessories Like a Millennial

now

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

There are so many pink’s out there but perhaps my favorite pink of all…the millennial pink. It’s unlike any pink you’ve seen before in fact it’s sort of peachy, but not quite. Hmm. more like a rosy salmon or a super light blush, that’s the one! It’s definitely not your girly-girl pink, millennial pink is more for the sophisticated.

With so many fun accessories to choose from in Pantone’s color of the year, Rose Quartz, what’s a girl to do? I say buy them all doll…you deserve it!

  1. Anything in satin is absolutely lovely and these mules by Miu Miu are no exception. These antique rose pair are whimsical and super chic for a dinner party or a fancy get together. You can even wear them with your favorite light washed ripped denim and a plain white tee (remember to tuck in) for a day look.
  2. These pink Adidas pairing are enough to make me go running…ugh. Or I can wear them with my sweats and lounge around the house, which seems to be a better fit. Seriously dolls whatever you’re into you need these super chic bae’s in your life.
  3. If I could be crossbody pouch, this is the one I would be. So convenient and that bow is just super adorable. This bag is honestly perfect enough to accessorize any of your fits this fall and add a feminine touch. Whether it’s a day look to run errands in or a dinner date with your new favorite hottie, this bag is the one.
  4. Something pink and satin in a strappy sandal…yes please. These satin and suede sandals by Paul Andrew are perfect to wear with a glamorous evening dress or light denim, but not the type you run errands in. This pairing is a little more classier and is definitely more appropriate for an evening look.
  5. I definitely had all of you in mind when I decided on this Globe-trotter vanity case. It’s super cute and such a simple way to carry all your vanity-needs. This is especially perfect if you’re a makeup artist and need a chic way to have your makeup travel with you.

Enjoy my <3’s.

Ease Into Fall With This Transitional Look

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 

Let’s get into that fall wardrobe of yours and see what you’ve got to play with!

The weather isn’t cool enough for turtlenecks, especially if you live in sunny L.A., but lucky for us knit tee’s are in and super chic. Whether you pair it with your favorite jeans or the skirt you’ve been obsessing over it’s the perfect must have for those cold nights. A plunging neckline with shorter sleeves can also help you achieve this must have fall look, if the weather has no chill.  Pair your new knit shirt with an A-line skirt. Again, we’re going for something passable during the warmer days that can still be carried into the cooler nights.  Tights aren’t necessary yet, but if you’re legs are getting cold, match this look with a pair of sheer leggings. 

If you’re going for comfort but still want to be in this season’s must haves, pair traditional jeans or casual pants with a duster coat. Duster coats provide a slouchy fit and work as a neat replacement between trench coats and denim spring coats. 

Fall clothing should have a rustic and brick appearance. We’re going for deep reds, purples, plums, and berries. A muddy yellow is often overlooked, but it’s all the more reason to grab it for an occasional night out around town. You’ll stand out as a fashionista with muddy yellow pumps or satchel at your waist.

Whether the sun is shinning or has decided to stay in, wearing rounded sunglasses is the perfect way to keep the wrinkles away. You’re going for intelligent-elegance with a rounded appearance! Another super chic must have accessory for this season is the choker. Perhaps my favorite trend for the fall season, the single earring, mainly because I lost the second half of my favorite pair and have been wanting to wear it without looking like a mess.

So excited for all the fun fall fits to put together <3.

The Proper Way to Clean Your Makeup Applicators

makeup brushes

Ladies, listen up! It’s time you take a look at what you’re putting on your face. And, no, I’m not talking about the makeup itself but the brushes you’re using when applying your makeup. Ever thought about what you’re really transferring onto your skin? Try imagining tons of millions of tiny little bacteria particles and microscopic organisms (science words). That’s right, your brushes are full of tenants. Yucks galore.

It’s time to clean house. Here are a few tips to get you started.

1. How do you clean a makeup sponge applicator?

BeautyBlender’s Original Makeup Sponge Applicator requires you to dip it into water to fill it up. This saturation of the water fills up the space in your sponge making it dense. Hence, less makeup fills the pores and becomes absorbed inside of the applicator. Cleaning recommendations require only a simple wash afterward with soap and water. It doesn’t get much simpler. Remember to rinse until water runs clear.

2. Clean your eyelash curler (okay, so it’s not a brush).

Eyelash curlers are notorious for getting covered in mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, eye-anything. Oh, one more thing, they are full of those tiny eyelash and eyebrow mites. That’s right ladies, your curler is chalk full of mites. You shouldn’t worry about the buggies on your tools though, it’s more of what the acidity of the makeup can do to the steel and padding of your brand new curler. To thoroughly clean your curler dip the tool into some warm soapy water. Be sure to apply some pressure and clamp it shut. The pressure will help the pad soak up the soapy water and begin a good lather. The deeper your soapy water penetrates the pad, the cleaner and longer lasting your tool becomes.

3. Wash your brushes after each use

Do you know you should be rinsing your brushes after every use? Well, now you do. So, no more excuses!

Makeup left on your brush begins to harden with time. Not only that, but as you add more and more makeup, you’re creating layers or bacteria. Rinse your brushes under warm water until the water runs clear. Gently, wipe your brush with a clean cloth and you’re done! Tip: Make sure to wipe your brush from base to tip. Follow an outward motion to keep your brush bristles neatly gathered. The more care you put into these initial steps, the longer your product will last.

4. Finally, how often should you be replacing your makeup applicators, etc!

Mascara: Pitch it every three months.

Eyeshadow: If your product is powder, pitch after two years. If your product is cream, it’s time for a change after 1 year.

Makeup brushes: Products can last anywhere from one to five years. Money counts in this department. Tip: If your brushes are shedding, it’s time for a replacement.

Makeup sponges: Trash the sponge after consistent use spanning one month.

I hope this guide helps you dolls. Have fun painting those faces, and remember to take care of your tools!

Also, just in case you’re obsessing over the Artis Makeup Brushes featured…enjoy <3.

Denim On Denim On Denim…

A super popular trend in fashion at the moment is doubling up denim. This look is easy to fumble so here are three ways to double denim in style.

denim on denim

When first entering the denim on denim world, start simply by pairing jeans with a denim top. The key is using contrasting denims to create the complementary look. Matching a pair of Victoria Beckham’s Super Skinny Jeans with Richmond Denim Top is a perfect combo. 

denim on denim

Everyone knows black is a neutral color so take advantage when wearing denim. Saint Laurent Skinny Jeans pairs perfectly with Tommy Hilfiger Denim Top and creates a double denim look that’s not over the top. This looks super cute tucked in dolls but wear it however it looks best on you!

If you’re a little adventurous you’ll also want to mix and match the classic with the black for a more fun look. When it comes to the new trends people tend to play it safe and follow the rules but that can be boring. Whatever the trends may be coming up with your unique mix will never go out of style. For a more edgy look this Frame Denim paired with Ralph Lauren Apley Shirt is absolutely everything.

Rocking the “Canadian tuxedo” is no longer a fashion faux pas. Wearing denim on denim can give you a fresh, trendy look!

Lounging in Style

capri pants shirt bag shoes

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Lounging in style is definitely obtainable as long as you’ve got the right shoes for the occasion.

While a simple pair of capri’s and a crop top aren’t super stylish adding these Studded Suede Sandals by Alaïa’ will take you to new heights (no pun intended). The shoes always make the outfit and while this darling pair, with button-like straps, is really made for a cocktail dress there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t wear them here. It completely transforms your look but you’ll still feel super comfy throughout your day while running errands or catching up with friends.

I added the Mini Leather Satchel by Givenchy to this look because it’s super simple but goes so elegantly with the attention grabbing sandals. If you go for a more dramatic bag here it’s just not going to look right. The simple bag actually balances out the sandals and helps you achieve the look you’re going for.

When looking to accessorize this look I opted for this Gray Leather Strap Watch by Marc Jacobs because it’s super slick but still pretty enough to add some softness. The Vice Lipstick in “Mm” by Urban Decay goes well with the look because it adds a pop of color to a rather “gray” look. Then sprits on this intoxicating flowery scent from Arquiste to complete the look and leave you smelling super pretty all day long!

It’s always so much fun to put together an outfit and play around with what works well together. As always, remember to add a little bit of you to anything you put on because that’s what makes your style unique. 

Enjoy <3.

Can’t Resist a Good Sale…

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5/ 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

I can never resist a good sale…

The holiday’s are such a great time for us fashion obsessed girls because everything seems to be on sale. I’ve been doing a lot of shopping this weekend but there’s one purchase I’m most excited about…home sweet home. While I have my real estate agent looking for some places I’ve also found a couple of places myself I’d like to rent. I’m thinking of renting first because I’ve never even lived on my own and perhaps I should get my feet a little wet first. I’m also going the renting route because there are two apartments I’m obsessing over. They’re both in Downtown, Los Angeles. I myself love the Wilshire Corridor but my friend (moving here from France) is more interested in the vibe downtown since it reminds her of back home. I was a little uninterested at first but we’ve found some great places and now I’m super excited. One we’re looking into is in Little Tokyo, I’m obsessed with this place because there’s a dog spa in the building and I think my little Belle will love it. The other building is in South Park and my favorite thing about this place is the view and L.A. Live is minutes away. Since my friend is still in France my sister and I will be checking out the apartments on Tuesday. 

I’m super excited about sharing all of this with all of you my loves. Can’t wait for the dinner parties, get togethers, wine nights, and sleepovers that’s you’ll all be a part of. Once I am settled in I’ll also start doing more home decor as well. I’m so excited about the future of Lilibuzz and sharing all the exciting things happening in my world with all of you.

I’ll keep you guys updated as often as I can! I do plan on taking all of you on my journey with me so prepare yourselves for the fun ride.

For now, back to the bag sale my loves…I hope you guys love what I’ve picked out for all of you!

Rose Gold Lip Shades and More…

Covering yourself in rose gold from head to toe may seem a bit excessive but rose gold is in for summer 2016 and you’re an adult!

Every girl deserves the rose gold treatment be it on your eyes, lips, cheeks…and even your nails. With this trend you can glisten galore or stay warm with more coppery tones. Of course it’s best that you add a little bit of gold here and there if this isn’t a color you use frequently. Perhaps going with rose gold lips shades in the beginning and then moving on to the rest of your aesthetic needs. 

Here are ones I’m obsessing over!


rose pink lip shades

Lips so shiny no one will be able to resist with Gloss Volupte, the new generation lipgloss from YSL. This is super shinny and an added bonus…keeps your lips hydrated all day long. For lips as irresistible but more tamed aim for Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Lip Color to get that effortless look with a hint of shine. It contains lavish butters and oils that keep working to keep your lips hydrated long after the shade fades.

rose pink eyeshadow

If you’re feeling more adventurous and are ready to branch out and take on the shadows aim for sheer with Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow from Bobbi Brown. It’s lightly pearlized and will brighten the lids in a super soft way…perhaps it can even be used to highlight under the browbone, for now. If you like your shadows in powder you may also want to give Benefit Cosmetics Velvet Eyeshadow a try. It’s long-wearing so it’s perfect if you’ll be out all day and don’t have much time for touch ups.


rose pink nail polish

Rose gold on the fingers…yes please. This High-Gloss Nail Lacquer from Gucci is too pretty not to wear. It might just be my favorite tone, as far as nail polish is concerned. It’s glossy but the super light shade tames the high-shine. Diamonds and Pearls are a girl’s best friend but this tone from Deborah Lippmann may be too pink for the more sophisticated crowd. Perhaps best left to the younger generation and millennials. 

I hope you guys love my favorites and give rose gold a try!
