ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five pieces of online fashion content that we loved this week.
Beauty pro: The Cut spoke to Dubai beauty blogger and major makeup devotee Huda Kattan. If you’ve never heard for Huda, this fact should give you some perspective: She has twice as many Instagram followers as modern makeup legend Michelle Phan. The most fascinating part of the feature for us was the amount of makeup Huda wears just to work out: “I mean, okay,” she says, “if I go to a gym instead of working out at home, I’ll put a contour on … and a brow … and a little lip liner, and a little mascara and concealer.” If you want to follow her lead and look cute at the gym (but in a way more low-key way) try these easy workout hairstyles.
Making a mark: Refinery29 interviewed Aliza Licht, Twitter maven, senior VP of global communications for Donna Karan, and author of new career guide Leave Your Mark. Licht’s sage advice for women striving for careers in fashion (or really any industry) makes this interview a must-read. We can’t wait to check out her book!
Dress to impress: This week, we made an earth-shattering fashion discovery – our Suki Dress makes any woman, no matter what her body type or complexion, look uniquely fabulous. Click here to check out some gorgeous Pink Martini fans totally rocking this frock.
A glamorous cure: Beauty blogger Jude Chao of Fifty Shades of Snail wrote a compelling essay over at Fashionista about the offbeat treatment that helps her keep chronic depression at bay – her elaborate Korean beauty routine. Her product-heavy treatment might strike some as odd, but Jude’s journey is inspiring. Self-care often falls by the wayside when one suffers from depression, and this meditative routine allows Jude to pamper herself. The whole thing’s definitely worth a read.
That ’70s style: Refinery29’s guide to pulling off spring’s coolest trend is unlike any other. In order to get the scoop on 1970s style, they spoke to an actual fashion historian! If you’ve ever wondered why ribbed tops and crochet were so popular back in the day, you’ll find the answers here.
