Jewel Tone Beauty

A Lacey Perspective: Jewel Tone Beauty

I could not be more in awe of the stunning jewel tone gowns that have been walking across the red carpet of the award shows this year. These dresses have been so incredible with their rich, deep colors on the freshly tanned movie stars and I can’t help but be inspired (and wishing it was warmer in DC).

One jewel tone ensemble that caught my eye was surprisingly not an item of clothing or a piece of jewelry but a beauty look. Kaley Cuoco’s green smoky eye stood out amongst the other famous faces, and I have been playing around with the look for myself ever since. As a brown-eyed gal I did a similar feel but with shades of purple (the suggested color for brown eyes), but the gorgeous newlywed’s green eyes were a perfect match to her unexpected eye shadow choice.

Below is how to create Kaley’s unique look for less…

Holiday Beauty Under $20

A Lacey Perspective: Holiday Beauty Under $20With Thanksgiving a couple weeks away, it’s time we start thinking about what to wear to the bazillion holiday shindigs around the corner. From presents for family to those shoes that would be the perfect addition to your office party, we are going to be spending a lot of money in the next several months.

The one thing that shouldn’t break the bank is your make up, and my go-to for inexpensive makeup is Target. From a metallic gold eye to deep red nails, Target’s beauty section has it all.

With some inspiration from Pinterest I have pulled together all you need, with each piece under $20, to create a classic holiday look that will leave you lots of room in your wallet to buy presents for your family (or yourself).
