New Kardashian Trend? Wearing Makeup to the Gym

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

There was a time when going to the gym was akin to waking up in the morning without any makeup on. Going to the gym was an effortless task-simply throw on some shorts and a t-shirt, and you were good to go. These days, going to the gym is a full-out production for women like Kim Kardashian. Women who want to emulate the celebrity’s style have been seen sporting medium brown shadow, gloss and deep shades of lipstick to the gym.

It seems that there is now a huge trend where women want to look like glamourous celebs at the gym. According to a recent survey, seven out of ten women reported that they wore makeup to the gym on a regular basis. Just this past July, Kim Kardashian was seen wearing berry lipstick and eyebrow pencil to a Studio City gym.

The most popular workout make-up trick has been to sport mascara to the gym. According to a recent survey, women reported that lengthening their lashes with mascara is their favorite beauty boost before the gym. 34 percent of women reported that they love to wear foundation to the gym. Lastly, 21 percent of women reported that they love to wear lip gloss to the gym. In last place, 17 percent of women reported that they are always sure to get a spray tan before heading to the gym.

There were also women who reported that they love to spend over 15 minutes in getting ready for the gym. Looking good for the gym does require a bit of a time investment. One needs to find the perfect pair of shorts and that cute tank top for the gym. Of course, completing the look means doing one’s hair and applying just the right amount of makeup for a workout session.

If you want to find the perfect hairstyle for the gym, then you may want to ask your hair stylist about different hairstyle options at your next appointment. Your hair stylist will be able to help you find a hairstyle that is easy to manage for the gym. You may also want to try the salon that is available at cosmetology schools. Cosmetology students are always on the latest cutting-edge of hair styles that are flexible and easy to manage. You may be able to get great advice from a student who works in one of the student-run cosmetology salons.

Kim Kardashian Inspired Nude Lips Are In This Fashion Season

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

ts-80402116As the calendar prepares to turn to spring and the fruit begins to ripen on the vines, women all over the globe have been awaiting the next hot lip color that was to be revealed as the temperatures start to heat up. To the surprise of many, designers threw the fashion world a giant curveball in recent weeks as starlets and runway queens like Kim Kardashian have been spotted entirely devoid of lipstick altogether. Indeed, nude lips are going to be seen by the masses in the coming months.

The “nude lips” trend has exploded onto the International fashion scene and has been openly embraced by many of the most important figures in the industry. The look certainly conjures up mental associations of nakedness and purity that drive men absolutely wild, but there is a bit more to the experimentation with de-emphasizing the face’s most striking natural feature.

Companies have began to realize that keeping lips pure and often coated in nothing more than a thin layer of gloss is an excellent way to establish a sense of purity, innocence and even an angelic status in their models. While this can obviously garner attention and create visceral reactions in some, it also creates an immediate opportunity for a striking and visually memorable contrast with the wardrobe or with makeup applied to other areas of the face.

In recent years, the obsession with enhancing the look of the eyes through eyeliners and other tricks has taken on a life all its own, and it now reaches so far as to dominate the typical designer and makeup artist’s approach to creating a look. Many artists are choosing to keep the lips a natural color so that they can absolutely go wild with colors and designs surrounding the eyes without making a smooth and beautiful face look like an overly cluttered painting.

As is the case in the fashion world, trends move quicker than chartered jets from Milan to New York City.

Labels from Derick Lam to Tommy Hilfiger have already hopped on the nude-lipped train and are ready to ride it for as long as the public embraces the refreshing trend. The Hilfiger team recently trotted out a model to display their Spring 2012 collections that was adorned in only a clear gloss and light blush coupled with a swinging ponytail, and their minimalist approach was met with acclaim for hitting its mark in displaying the raw power of natural beauty unleashed.

Thousands of women that exist on the very cutting edge of style have already holstered their tiny red cylinders for the time being, anxious to embrace their natural roots and show the world their unaltered smiles within the context of being fashionable and trendy.

The next event in the fashion chain of evolution will be for manufactures to release a slew of products that are designed to enhance the look, shine and perhaps shape of your lips without using anything more than clear gloss.

If you are looking for a start into the fashion trending industry, finding a beauty school or hair school might be the best idea.
