Carlos Miele: voluminous

Written by Daniel P Dykes

The lights fade in gently, revealing a shilouette at the end of the catwalk clad, obviously, in pants and a cape. As the lights enhance to offer more, it's clear that the cape is fur and that you want to be anything but a furry animal as the fall 2011 season nears.

While the cuts, like each model's hair which is pulled back into a braided pony tail, seem simple, their cloth is not. This is a collection of patterns galore - vertical stripes sitting over wide leg pants, winter prints applied to much of the collection, and gold cloth mottled with silver. Even the most simple tonality provides contrast with white jumpsuits accented with waist cinching red belts.

Just as simple does not mean this is a collection made up of plain cloth, so too does it not mean that it's minimalist. Anything but. Pleated wide leg trousers, that I could probably fit in to, along with the model are presented in velvet greens, others in printed silks.

So much about Carlos Miele's autumn / winter 2011 collection is voluminous. The furs big, figure hugging gowns only do so around the torse and below the waist provide plenty of flow, their slanted cut and pleating giving the hem movement with each step the model takes. The slanted cuts on the longer pieces exceed those of the shorter - these are detailed with a split, while the gowns have their spit filled with what looks to be tulle on some dresses and ruffles on others. Sometimes that tulle is layered under the dresses, sometimes on top and where that occurs the best models flick it, as such professionals are prone to do, creating fierce, eye catching movement. The longer the dress, it seems, the more sumptuous the detail.

Like other designers this season there's are the odd single shouldered pieces, but having had that trend reach the lowest rungs of the high street it feels like a moment too soon for fashionisers to reinvest. Instead it's the ever-spring shoulderless pieces that provide the stronger look for Miele.

Lips by Season

Trendy make up can make any women look gorgeous but what can really add to her sex appeal is lusty lips. For lip make up, the colors must be chooses wisely and intelligently.

Besides the right tool, one must know the technique to apply lip make up as well as it is not a child’s play. The normal colors according to changing seasons could be browns, bronze, bleed reds, etc in the autumn season, reds, pinks, oranges and peach in the winters.

Neutral colors work best in the summers. Spring welcomes mor of pastels and pale pinks with translucent glosses.

Normally it is seen that the lipsticks get rubbed off easily in the matter of one or two hours no matter how neatly and nicely you apply it. But it is possible to keep some prevention through water proof and smudge proof makeup.

There are hundreds of shades in such type of make up that can enhance the beauty of women. The presence of herbal extracts and less of chemicals make them eco friendly which is why most of the women prefer applying smudge-proof makeup these days.

When it comes to deciding which lip color to apply, you should see the color of outfit. While buying lipsticks, keep the color of skin tone in mind. What does not make sense is that you contrast it with the purse color or hair color! Choose the colors that suit you and your personality.

Just because the color that you wish to apply looks good on some other women does not justify you applying it. if you wish, seek help of professional to choose your lip colors. Also, while applying lipstick, the rest of the makeup should be kept in mind.

It must keep match with the rest of facial makeup or else, it would ruin your whole look. For example, if you wear pink makeup then red and pink lipsticks do, but do not go for browns, purples or oranges.

So this is why, basic sense of matching must be there in every women. So this is how one can choose the lip colors for herself and glamorize her looks.

Express: graphic print string bikini

Written by Tania Braukamper

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express. All opinions are 100% mine.

If spring is on the way in your part of the world, you may be starting to think about your perfect bikini. But before you get that far, or simply just to cover off on those occasions where you don't need to pull out all the swimwear stops, it's worth having a few everyday options up your sleeve. Like a simple, block colour monokini; or a classic string bikini. Express have brought to our attention a range of women's swimwear options that are hard to beat in the value-for-money stakes. My personal pick is this graphic print bikini; I'm contemplating making the leap to redhead this week, so the blues and greens would be just right.

On a side note, if you subscribe to the Express e-mail list you'll also go into the draw to win a $200 gift voucher - great for picking up some swimwear of your own (amoung other things). The full sweepstakes rules can be found atthat link.
