Make-up Essentials for the Classy Bosschick

Its no news that acing makeup hundred percent of the time is a girls dream but is it really achievable?

I walked into a studio for a photo shoot and a lady walked up to me and asked me what make up brands I used and how I used it. I'm not a fan of artificial make up although all makeup is artificial right. I love simple but classy makeup.
But for an affordable yet classy makeup you'd need the following essentials.

Hat Frenzy at Royal Ascot 2017

The Royal Ascot was nothing short of amazing this year. Every year Royal Ascot is attended by Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family arriving each day in a horse-drawn carriage with the Royal procession taking place at the start of each race day and the raising of the Queens Royal Standard. It is a major event in the British social calender, and press coverage of the attendees and what they are wearing often exceeds coverage of the actual racing. It was lit wit a little 'Omg' on the side. There were classics and  the "oh not so classy".Would you  wear these? Comments are always welcome.Take a look...

Elegantly Simple

Patterned dresses are the way to go when you don't feel like wasting time putting together many pieces of what to wear but still want to look elegant.

Celine Dion Steps out in Balmain Outfit worth Over $10,000

Celine Dion stepped out in Paris dressed in a Balmain outfit worth an estimated $10,660. The piece that caught eyes was her $7773 Croc skin coat. Personally, I'm not feeling this whole outfit. I always say you're never too old to chase your dreams but when it comes to fashion , there are some clothes and trends that do not apply to certain age groups and hence should not be touched let alone worn by them. You're still my Hero Celine. I still love you.
