Fashion Tips for Women on the Go May 21 2015, 0 Comments
We all lead very busy lives. Rushing from one meeting to another at work, running errands for the household, attending committee meetings, sporting events and life in general keeps us on our toes until we finally fall into bed at night. How do you make sure you’re looking great as you go from one thing to the next? We have some tips that will keep you looking great without having to worry about extreme wardrobe changes.
A good pair of capris. Our Elizabeth and Melanie capri pants are not only perfect for this time of year, they’re also a great addition to your wardrobe to get you from one event to the next. Dress up the capris with nice heels and a jacket over a pretty tank top for work, and then switch over to your comfortable sandals and ditch the jacket for the soccer game, or a night out with friends.
And now is the time to add them to your wardrobe! Capris are on sale, 50% off, for Memorial Day Weekend!
Red lipstick. Don’t say it doesn’t look good on you, there’s a shade for everyone! Check out these tips from Cosmopolitan to find your perfect shade. There is nothing like a great eye-popping bright lipstick to change an outfit from “serious worker” to “I’m a girl ready for a night on the town”!
Dry shampoo. Maybe you’re good about going to the gym during your lunch hour. Or maybe you battled the hot summer sun all day and now you’re just extremely short on time! No matter what the reason, there are days when we just don’t have the time to wash our hair, especially with all the styling it entails. Using a good dry shampoo will give your hair a boost while saving you some valuable time. Check out TotalBeauty.com for their best and worst dry shampoos.
A great tote bag. You are going to need something to stash your work jacket in and keep your changes of shoes, from heels to sandals to cute canvas sneakers. Go ahead and splurge on a quality tote you really like, and make it a staple in your car.
While you are on the go, don’t forget to enjoy the freedom to Go Free!
Lighten Up with Summer Makeup August 05 2014, 0 Comments
Even though we diligently slather sunscreen on our faces, by this time of the summer, we all have a little natural glow to our cheeks. Take advantage of that summer look and lighten up with your makeup! You’ll save a little time in the morning, and give your skin a little break as well. Here are a few tips to help keep you looking sexy all summer long.
* Ditch the foundation. Those heavy makeups tend to slip and slide when we sweat anyway. Make do with a tinted moisturizer and a concealer, and you’ll be surprised at how great your skin looks. Personally, I use a little blush and then apply Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil. It feels like silk and does an amazing job of covering up imperfections in the skin. It also helps keep makeup in place, especially on those humid August days.
* Trade in your lipstick for a tinted lip balm. Even our lips get a little color from the sun, and lip balms help highlight the natural color while providing a glossy, fresh-from-the-pool look. Keep those beautiful lipsticks for fall, when the darker colors and heavier styles are more appropriate.
* Lighten up your eyes. There’s no need for heavy eyeliner and fancy glittery shadows. Summer is the time for a clean, fresh look, so less is more. I try to keep my eyeliner thin and light. If you wear eye shadow, find one color you like, such as a coppery bronze or a cheery pink, and apply it lightly. Creams can be a good choice, as they’ll stay in place better in the heat.
* Use water resistant or smudge proof mascara. It’s less harsh than the waterproof varieties, yet still gives you the staying power you need on steamy summer days.
Makeup is a fun way to help us feel sexy, and that’s what we’re all about here at Go Free Pants! Check out our capris, on sale right now and a great choice for summer. Together with a slim tank top and your new summer makeup, you’ll be making a sexy fashion statement the moment you walk out your door.
