What’s better than rocking one pretty color? Two. These two cool combos were all over the spring runways. Try them out and send us photos of your outfits!
BLUE + RED
Is everyone enjoying this nice weather or what? I know my last few post this month have been about new spring makeup trends ( because I was so excited) so I wanted to switch it over and focus on some spring makeup trends! Leave me comments and share photos of any of the fashion and makeup trends you have tried 🙂 Have a fabulous weekend Kellie’s readers, xoxo.
Soft & Feminine
The Minimilist Look
This is one of my all-time favorite looks that I actually wear on the regular. Even though I love wearing a full face of makeup, I typically don’t use it for everyday. The minimilist look is all about balance; for example I either do a bold lip and simple or bare eye, or on the contrary a smokey or cat eye and a neutral or bare lip.
Play up your eyes this spring with an eyeliner in a color other than black or brown. It’s great for a night out and brings all the attention to your eyes. I recently tried a bright teal color and loved it.
The “Bare” Look
The name of this says it all, it’s basically a “no-makeup” makeup look. Throw on some tinted BB cream, concealer, blush and mascara and you’re good to go. Super simple, fast and easy to achieve.
Give the illusion you’ve been kissed by the sun early this spring by layering on bronzer and highlighting your face.
Who doesn’t love a good lipstick? Be bold and try something new! Fuscia, baby pink and orange are all up for grabs this spring in the lip department. Find a pretty shade for your skin tone and have some fun!
Happy spring everyone! I hope you all are as excited about warmer weather and bright colors as I am. A lot of us are still trying to catch up from that one hour of sleep we lost – like me. However it’s time to look at the positives and radiate that with what we wear as well. Never thought you could pull this statement color off? Think again. This season is about all shades of yellow, so there’s a shade out there for every skin tone. Have fun with your accessories too and experiment and play with yellow.
New season new wardrobe! I’m excited to update you all on all of the new spring trends, which are all about shape, looking polished and using playful colors that compliment your silhouette. This season is about making you feel good and look good!
A new (sexier) take on atheisure that incorporates knits, body suits, mesh, separates and a little more skin. Who new you could look so stylish while being comfy.
Colorful & Bold Strips
Be ready to rock this loud and fun trend. Go for any type of strip; skinny, wide or rainbow!
That’s right, it’s exactly what it sounds like and it looks so chic. It’s about time pretty bras get their time in the spotlight.
Make A Statement
Slogans have been everywhere lately, so let people know how you feel by letting your clothes do the talking.
These became popular last summer and the trend has lasted. They’re the perfect alternative to a heel.
Any makeup junkie out there knows that peach and orange have been making a comeback in the makeup world, it’s the new ‘IT’ color Of 2017. I am personally excited because I think these colors are beautiful and look great on all skin tones – plus, it’s getting me excited for spring and warmer weather! Below are some of the best ways to wear the trend and some the blushes/lipsticks I love in these gorgeous shades.
Try it monochrome:
1. Too Faced Baby Love and Love Hangover. The first one is a perfect peachy/nude shade and the second one is more of a subtle orange. Both are great for everyday ad brighten up your face. Find them here.
2. This is my favorite lipstick shade to wear in the summer because it’s so bright! Plus it’s matte which I love. MAC special edition Toledo collection orange shade. There is no link included for this one because the collection is no longer available on the MAC website, but I’m sure you can Google it and find it elsewhere.
3. This is a great everyday lipstick, it’s more of a gloss but it’s not too glossy. It’s also the perfect mix between peach and coral. Naughty by Flirt! Same with this one, no link because they no longer have it on their website, but I’m sure you can find it elsewhere.
I hope everyone’s week has been great! Although February is still a very cold month, it’s one month closer to spring – which makes it one month closer to being able to rock spring clothes, yay! Scroll down below to see what you should still wear this month.
1. Checkered / Plaid Blazer
This is the perfect transition piece – you can layer it with turtle-necks, sweaters, t-shirts and tanks. Personalize and style it to make it your own!
2. Red Bag
A red bag is such a statement piece. Plus, it’s fashionable for all 4 seasons 🎒
3. Lightweight sneakers
Cute and light weight sneakers are the new go-to item. You can dress them down and looks sporty chic or pair them with a dress for a dressier casual look. Everyone needs a pair.
4. Chocker Necklace
Yes, chokers are still in for spring. Not only are they cute and go with literally everything, but there’s so many different styles too.
5. Laceup Boots
I know there is only a few weeks of winter left, but laceup boots are a personal fav of mine. They also go with almost everything too; dresses, shorts, pants, you name it. Keep them out a little longer ladies.
Saddle bags are some of the most convenient bags; you can adjust the strap to your liking and wear them as a shoulder bag or crossbody. I suggest finding a neutral leather bag that will match with everything and last you forever ~
Hey girlies! I hope everyone’s new year has been great and everyone are is beginning to get settled into 2017 – I know I barely am lol. I wanted to do a post about achieving great brows in 5 minutes because I get a lot of questions on how I do mine. I do pluck my own eyebrows. I’ve only ever gotten them waxed once and threaded once. It does take time and practice but I save a lot of money. Doing my brows is something I take time to do every morning, along with a lot of other women – except that small percent of women out there that have flawless, effortless eyebrows – we all wish we were you. Below is a photo of my done up brows ??
There are obviously a lot of brow products out there, so finding the right one can be daunting. This is the one I currently use and that I really like: Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade. It’s a great product, it lasts all day and a little goes a long way so you really do get your monies worth. The only thing with brow pomade’s is that you also have to buy a brush seperatly to apply it, and it also takes time and practice to perfect applying a perfect brow. Here is the inexpensive brush I use: e.l.f. Cosmetics Small Angled Makeup Brush. On top of this, I also use a clear gel atop my eyebrows so that the makeup stays in place. Here is what I use: Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara. Below are photos of the products ??
So there you go ladies, my secret to great and quick brows! Let me know if you have any questions or comments in the comment area!

Hi Kellie’s shoppers! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season and new year, I know I did 🙂 Let us know what you wore in our comment section!
Everyone has used or at least heard the term “New year new me.” So I wanted to make this post about not necessarily starting a new wardrobe, but just giving it a new year makeover. Here are some ideas to help get you started:
1. Spring clean early
We all have have clothes in our closets that have not been worn in months or maybe even (eek), years. Start off there; go through your clothes and sort out what hasn’t been worn in a long time because lets be real, it will probably continue to not be worn for a long time. Plus, you can always make some extra cash by bringing it into Kellies!
2. Get organized
After you’ve removed all the clothes that doesn’t need to be there anymore, organize what is staying. This is a great way to not only know what you do have, but it also makes it easier to pick out your clothes every morning.
3. Check your basics
This is something women don’t really think about but is actually pretty important. Basics are the basis to any wardrobe, they’re what you wear the most. Go through your jeans, basic leggings, tees and tank tops that you wear all the time. We tend to not notice that they are not the same color anymore, have a hole or just look plain old because we’re used to wearing them all the time. So, out with the old and in with the new – time to shop for some new basics if they’re past their due date.
4. Figure out your current style / Research trends
What has changed about your style in the past year? What’s a trend you’ve been wanting to try? For example I’ve recently noticed that I tend to gravitate towards the same color palette when it comes to clothes, so I decided that’s what I want to focus on this year, finding cool styles in my favorite colors.
Research fashion trends for 2017 too, this way you can stay up to date with styles and see how you can incorporate what you already have in your wardrobe into new trends.
5. Go shopping!
Pretty sure this is what you all were waiting to hear lol! Yes it’s okay to go shopping for new clothes! 2017 is all about starting fresh and showing the world who you are.
I hope this helps everyone kick start their wardrobe and style for 2017. Lets us know in the comments if this helped and what fashion changes you’re making this year! <3
