Why-should-you-choose-a-cc-cream

When you’re looking for a face makeup, what is your goal?  Do you need a lot of coverage?  Are you looking for something that will smooth out your complexion?  Maybe you just want something that will even out your skin tone.

Personally, for an every day makeup, I’m looking for something light and natural.  I have a little bit of uneveness in my skin tone, and do have freckles.  Mostly, I want something that gives me a little color, and helps even everything out.  There was a time that I chose tinted moisturizers.  Then I moved on to BB Creams.  Now, we’re working with CC Creams, like this new Hydrating CC Cream from Studio Gear Cosmetics.

How to Style a Sheath Dress Three Ways with AbbeyPost

How to style a sheath dress was inspired by a dress from AbbeyPost for editorial purposes.  Opinions are our own.

casual-abbeypost-outfit-wm

One of the ways that I extend my wardrobe is by investing in classic pieces.  While I really love the trends of tribal prints, chevron, and even neon, these are the trends that will come and go, and there’s no reason to invest lots of money in these types of pieces.  One of the classic items that I think belongs in every closet is a classic sheath dress.

Most people think of a sheath dress as something that only Ladies who Lunch or women who work in a conservative office wear.  Not true!  With a bit of styling, a sheath dress can take you anywhere.  For these examples, we’ll be using the Sutton dress from AbbeyPost.

To this point, Michael Todd True Organics recently sent me some new skincare products to test out.
