Look Fabulous This Winter

With the winter chill in the air, everyone’s bundling up for the Holidays.  Seasons determine fashion changes and trends.  Along with packing up summer clothes and bringing out warm woolly sweaters, girls also change out their makeup!

This season, I’m a fan of the winter-white look, stark and bare makeup with rosy cheeks for day, and dark smokey plum eyes, defined brows and barely-there pink shimmer gloss lips for evening events.

And for the hair? Well, I’ve been inspired by the cover of November’s W Magazine.  Demi Moore wears her iconic raven hair 24/7, but I think it’s the perfect winter hair style.  The ultimate winter look: pair sky high boots, a cashmere Vince sweater with leggings and fantastically long ebony center-split hair.  It’s perfectly edgy, classy, and refined high fashion look that’s low-maintanence and easy to put together.

At 47, Demi Moore is still a goddess.  I remember her from St. Elmo’s fire as part of the whole Brat Pack scene from the 80’s.  Even then, her beauty was striking as was her fashion. Below, is the perfect Holiday look.  Simple, loose hair with a stunning dress and statement jewelry.

Demi’s always been known for her long dark locks.  She’s never strayed from her iconic style of center-split straight raven hair.  She’s worn it a number of waves but has never changed the basic style and cut.  Honestly, there’s no need to! Don’t be afraid to be simple this season.

The only thing Demi’s stylist has done to her hair is add some texture for a more evening appeal.  You can re-create this look with a medium sized barrel curling iron, slowly curling 1″ sections at a time.  Let them be a bit messy and non-uniform.  You want that slightly unkempt look for this style. Finish up with some texturizing spray all over, and scrunch a bit from the bottom up.

Personally, I cheat. My hair is naturally wavy, so I just dry my hair halfway and finish up with a diffuser and then scrunch.  I’ll tame some random hairs with a curling iron if necessary. Pretty easy, right?

Here’s Demi, with her drool-worthy younger husband.  Now that we have the hair, perfected the makeup and spent tons on fabulous clothes…where do we find the guy? LOL.

Absolutely amazing.  I’m totally inspired! I hope you are too! ;)
