Turn Up The Heat and Your Hemline

Happy Fashion Friday!  Take notice, but not cover, that the hemline is unmistakably mod yet far from reserved this spring/summer season!  Call it mini or micro this 60’s inspired look is all the rage and screams legs for days.

Exposed shoulders are also just about everywhere albeit off-the-shoulder tops, blouses and dresses that can be worn quite casual to extremely formal.  This is a flirty and feminine look you must try while keeping in mind a moisturized luminous glow or bronze goddess skin.

Achieve an all-over body glow by mixing Laini’s Sheer Glo Illuminating Lotion with your favorite moisturizer or an all-over beautiful sun-kissed glow with Laini’s Bronze Baby Glo Lotion.  Both formulas are silky smooth with a pearl finish to give an instant healthy glow with skincare benefits.

Accessorize your look and elongated neck with a gorgeous choker like this one from a favorite, DANNIJO.

Enjoy your weekend!

With style and gratitude



Memorial Day Weekend Essentials

Happy Fashion Friday!  Hopefully, the weather will be sunny and beautiful over the long Memorial Day weekend.  We have you covered for the perfect holiday essentials and the unofficial start of summer.

Whether you are traveling far or enjoying a staycation the best look is one that can be worn at multiple occasions.

Here are some of the essentials that we recommend:

A fabulous coverup that can double as a dress. Try this off the shoulder mini with lace trim.  During the day, throw on a cute pair of casual sandals. At night, slip on these to die for slingbacks.

Accessories will complete this look and take you from sunbathing to sultry.  Try adding this Maaji multi printed tote and a pair of this year’s hottest sunglasses from Dior.  Fill your tote with any one of Laini’s beautiful lip glosses, sure to keep your lips hydrated and pouty!

Enjoy the long weekend and thank you to all the men and women who have served and serve in our United States military!

Fashion Friday – Pink and Red Combo

Happy Fashion Friday! Continuing with the Valentine’s Day theme, we are focusing on a stunning fashion look that is sure to wow any date!

Combining bold red and pretty pink may seem like an unlikely pairing, but it is actually a fierce duet that anyone can wear.  Be sure to choose shades that complement the undertone whether cool or warm, in other words do not pick a red and pink that are two similar. The contrast should be apparent to enjoy the full effect. Try wearing this gorgeous pink silk bodysuit from Bebe with these poppy red high waisted flared pants from Alice + Olivia.

Finish this show-stopping look with a pair of sky-high Christian Louboutin heels in red patent leather.

Laini Cosmetics has the perfect lipstick to complete this look, Intoxicate, a lovely and vibrant fuchsia, which can be pre-ordered now at lainicosmetics@gmail.com

For those of you interested in incorporating this look slowly, add accessories into your wardrobe like this red and pink Gucci shoulder bag with gold embellishments.

Stay tuned next week for an exciting Gift with Purchase offer! Have a wonderful weekend!

Be Still My Hat….How To Avoid Holiday Hat Hair

Philip Treacy structured wave hat

Happy Fashion Friday!  This month is the perfect time for incorporating one of our favorite stylish and functional seasonal trends…hats.  From beanies to berets, these chic cold weather accessories can leave hair looking flat and messy. Static is public enemy number one but it can be avoided.

We all know a good hair day is a great day.  Here’s how to remove your hat and still have your hair looking fabulous:

Begin by showing a little love to your scalp.  Rene Furterer offers a variety of products focused on protecting and treating the scalp, which in turn, helps hair grow quicker and healthier. Try adding the Complexe 5 regenerating plant extract to your hair routine.

Whether you are wearing your hair straight, curly, or wavy, creating texture is important. You will need to add body at the crown of your head to avoid hair from being flattened by the weight of the hat. Spray your hair liberally with Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray.  Unlike other products, this spray does not leave a residue. Your gorgeous strands will remain soft and shiny with added volume. If you are still not convinced, create a small hair bump using bobby pins just as you would with a some up and some down look. This way when you take off the hat and take your hair out of the pins your hair will remain full looking!

Laini Cosmetics wishes you all a lovely weekend filled with lots of HATtitude!
