Why don’t you?

Gracey Hitchcock www.luxuryof pearls.comWhy don’t you…?
 
Before she was the editor of Vogue, Diana Vreeland wrote a column for Harper’s Bazaar called: Why don’t you? In it she made suggestions to the readers. I have always adored the idea, so I have borrowed  it this week.
 
Why don’t you:
 
Shut off your phone and computer one afternoon this weekend and read – so relaxing and good for your head!
 
Call an old friend and catch up.
 
Do your own pedicure this week and relax on your bed with magazines while your toes dry.
 
Take an evening to deep-condition your hair and put a mask on your face.
 
Meet a friend at the museum after work. See an exhibit and enjoy a glass of wine!
 
On another note, pearls are one of the hottest trends for fall. All the chicest designers have them, and so do I at my www.luxuryofpearls.com online store. My pearls are all real and fabulous. They are comparable to what you can buy for hundreds of dollars and more elsewhere. Feel free to email me any questions.
 
Have a sweet week my darlings! Don’t waste a single day of summer.
 
Also we have agreed to join with City Cosmetics to help promote their contest for their new Dragon’s Blood Beauty Elixir. We have not done this in age but have had an interest in contests and this is a good one!

Get the Gatsby look

Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red

The Great Gatsby is sure to start a wave of 1920s-inspired beauty and fashion trends. At Mary Kay makeup is trendy, well-priced, and looks fabulous. So when Mary Kay offered us their "Glam squads" take on the Gatsby look we decided to share it with you.

The fashion suggestions are from stylist Lo VonRump. The makeup tips are from Marissa Nemes. The Great Gatsby is sure to start a wave of 1920s-inspired beauty and fashion trends.

Apply Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Metallic Taupe and blend a charcoal eye shadow like Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal over and into the eye crease. Line the water (lower inner lash line) and lash line with Mary Kay Eyeliner in Black, smudge the liner using a smudger brush and sweep Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal under the lower lash line to create depth.
 
Re-line the top lash line with Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner and apply a generous coat of Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara for a set of heavenly lashes!
 
For Daisy’s iconic, bright red lip
Apply Mary Kay NouriShine plus Lip Gloss in Rock N’ Red for a vivid, glossy pop of color. For a more versatile red lip, apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red. This lipstick can be applied as a balm, a stain, or a full-bodied lipstick.
 
Style
www.luxuryofpearls.comLayer a pearl rope necklace over a suit jacket or a cocktail dress, stack gold and silver bracelets, and don an oversized marcasite cocktail ring for a retro 1920's feel. Look for clothing in romantic lilac hues, floral prints and shades of pastel. Incorporate items with sequin, beaded and silk detailing to achieve a flapper inspired look.
 
For glam hair like Daisy, accessorize with art deco hair clips and headbands with feather detailing. An art deco nail stands out and is on trend with 1920’s glamour. Try the “reverse French” manicure in black and white.
