Women of Color ♥

8/17/2014 09:00:00 AM TINAYUMS
In one of my styling and makeup gigs with women, a lot of them were concerned about which color will suit their complexion specifically with makeup and clothes. In my POV, colors are fun and we shouldn't limit ourselves by wearing one. Choosing your right colors will always depend on your taste, style and preference, that will be the only difference amongst others.

However, for those of you who insist, I have encountered tons of tips and recommendations from the professionals how to show off your skin to the best effect.

One way is to determine if your complexion is either cool or warm by simply looking underneath your arms! If the veins appear "blue" then you belong to "cool" complexion but if they appear "green-ish," then you fall to "warm."

Cool tones usually have either pale or dark skin with blue or pink undertones. Bright and bold colours brings out these undertones. While warm tones are skin types tend to have deeper, richer undertones of golds and yellows. Shades of black and earthy tones such as browns, reds and oranges will suit your skin. And yes some of the experts will advice you not to wear anything too bright or bold, which I definitely disagree. Again, your preference will make or break that decision to either embrace or ditch colors. 

Here are some photos we took with Addie who has dark skin than the usual which is a good example of warm complexion. I find it too beautiful to shoot with dark skin tones and it is very hard to find them.

It was such a great team effort with the makeup artist, Marwa, as she perfectly executed the look I wanted for Addie.

This season, I am opening up again in exploring with colors, although the forecast tell us raw or natural is better especially with makeup. I wanted a full-look that actually works as a signature.

Of course, having a perfect skin care routine is still the best way to attain your flawless base in exploring makeup, then comes finding your perfect foundation. There's plenty of them that you can find for darker skins, from value brands to luxury ones such as Estée Lauder and Chanel. Try them all, don't be afraid to go for a more sheer base than you're used to, and don't buy anything until you fall-in-love with it.

To add depth and definition to lips, cheeks and eyes, look for rich metallic hues like burnt copper and bronze or bright berry tones that brightens eyes without being overly sparkly.

NARCISO by Narciso Rodriguez ♥

8/14/2014 09:00:00 AM TINAYUMS
“I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance that would turn a man’s head.”
Narciso Rodriguez

Introducing NARCISO, the new fragrance from Narciso Rodriguez. NARCISO defines sensuality with a modern kind of elegance. A man once shared with Narciso that "Every time my wife puts on one of your dresses, we never leave the house." In the spirit of this sentiment, Narciso Rodriguez presents a new fragrance that celebrates a woman’s powers of seduction with the utmost luxury.

The fragrance transforms notes of vetiver, the most elegant note from the classic woody family, with a daring olfactory composition that encapsulates intense femininity. While musk remains the signature heart of the scent, it’s a voluptuous musk softened by amber, providing warmth and sensuality. Assertive woody notes of vetiver and luminous white and dark cedars meet tender florals, lucid gardenia and soft radiant bulgarian rose to create a singular synthesis both bold and subtle. The result: A seductive most feminine fragrance that lingers and endures.
