If you’ve read JustineCelina for any length of time, you’ll know how inspired I am by colour. Red is undoubtedly the colour of the season, so I’ve been finding fresh ways to incorporate more red into my personal style this autumn! I’ve always been a fan of the red lip — and this season, rocking a red lip is an easy, budget friendly way to participate in one of autumn 2017’s hottest trends without committing to a garment or accessory. In fact, I’ve been wearing red hues on my pout so often lately (and receiving tons of questions and compliments!) that it inspired me to create the ultimate guide to finding your perfect red lip and include 5 Red Lipsticks to Try this Autumn / Winter 2017!
Tonight I’m sharing my favourite of-the-moment red lipsticks inspired by PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine (why yes, it’s part of the Pantone Fall 2017 Colour Trend Report!) — described by Pantone as a powerful, evocative, dynamic red. If you’re ready to take this season’s hottest colour trend for a spin in the BEAUTY department, I’ve rounded up 5 fantastic red lipsticks in every shade, formula and price point — there’s something for everyone (including a natural option and a cruelty free option)! Red lipstick is infused with some sort of magical superpower — the right one can instantly make you feel more confident, glamorous and ready to take on the world. I truly believe every woman should have a red lipstick that flatters her colouring and makes her feel beautiful — and today I’m here to help! Come take a seat at my vanity as I break down my favourite formulas, hues and undertones for different skintones — along with and everything else you’ve ever wanted to know about finding a red lipstick that makes you feel like a million!
Fall is my favourite time of year for many reasons — but something I look forward to each year is pulling out all my favourite warm, cozy lip colours (and trying a few new ones!) to mark the change in seasons. Last autumn as I was organizing my vanity for the season, I noticed a major theme — all of my most-worn autumn lip colours had a very similar, pumpkin spice inspired colour story (yes, I actually began working on My Top 5 Pumpkin Spice Lipsticks post last fall!). Although I may be the only woman on the planet who isn’t into Pumpkin Spice Lattes (shocking, I know!), I can definitely appreciate the inspiration behind this quintessentially autumnal beverage. So naturally, I thought this concept would make a fantastic addition to my seasonal BEAUTY content here at JustineCelina! I absolutely love to embrace each season as fully as possible — whether it be in my personal style, beauty routine, home or what I choose to nourish my body with. While a lot has changed in 2020, my love of fall beauty remains — and although I’m not wearing as much makeup as I did pre-pandemic (or getting glammed up nearly as often), I still love to treat myself to a beautiful, seasonal makeup application for an instant confidence boost. I hope I can inspire you to do the same, as my makeup routine has remained one of my most cherished forms of self care over the years!
Today I’m thrilled to share My Top 5 Pumpkin Spice Lipsticks featuring my top shelf autumn lip products ranging in formula across price points — from long wearing (and mask-friendly) liquid lipsticks to nourishing natural products, to elegant hybrid formulas! If you’ve been browsing my recent STYLE content and wanting to learn more about what’s on my lips (I’ve been dropping major hints this post was coming!), you’ll find all the information you’re looking for in today’s post. As always, this dedicated review post in my recently introduced MY TOP 5 series is brimming with try-on photos, swatches and application tips — plus my top lip liner recommendations to pair with each shade to create a full, defined pout! If you’re ready to spice up your lipstick wardrobe for cooler months ahead, you’ve come to the right place — throw on your coziest sweater and curl up in your favourite reading nook with a seasonal beverage for a serious dose of inclusive, autumnal beauty inspiration. I also share my complete camera-ready fall beauty routine (sprinkled with tons of shoppable links) when I’m craving a dose of glamour!
With the promise of spring dancing on the warm Chinook breeze, I find myself looking to refresh my BEAUTY routine to reflect the transitioning seasons. You may have noticed a consistent colour story here at JustineCelina this month — I’m absolutely head over heels for all things pink and feminine, which seems to be a recurring theme each February! As we ease into spring (and through an extremely brown late winter here on the Alberta prairies), I seem to crave an extra dose of colour — in my wardrobe, my home and even in my beauty routine. I’ve noticed that each year February’s arrival evokes my desire to swap My Top 5 Everyday Lip Colours in favour of warmer, rosier, more romantic hues — and today I’m elated to share them with you!
My Top 5 Rose Toned Lipsticks are tried-and-true shades that have secured a permanent place on my vanity (and in the bottom of my bags!) as we transition into spring. From ethereal rosy nudes to the richest, deepest roses and across a range of formulas, finishes and price points, these universally flattering rose-coloured lipsticks truly make me feel beautiful — and I think you’ll love them, too! If you’re looking to infuse your beauty routine with a fresh, romantic twist as warmer weather and approaches, pour yourself a glass of rosé and take a seat at my vanity to learn more about MY TOP 5 rose toned lipsticks — plus coordinating lip liners to create a full, defined pout!
Do you have a power colour? I’m beginning to think mine is red. Oddly enough, it’s not a hue I’ve worn often over the past 4ish years since rocking my natural hair colour. Back in my (much) younger, platinum blonde days (yes, really — in fact, I’ve had almost every single hair colour except jet black!) red was one of my favourite colours to wear! This year, I’ve been increasingly drawn to red and have incorporated more of this statement shade into my personal style. Fast forward to SS18 and red is everywhere — a classic colour that demands attention, instills confidence and couldn’t be more suited to our scorching summer climate. I’ve always believed that red lips give you superpowers, so just imagine what wearing red-to-toe (ie: wearing red, head to toe) can do for you!
Today’s post is a fresh installment in my COLOUR CRUSH series and my take on a summery, red-to-toe look — along with a crash course on colour theory to help you find your perfect shade of red and master on-trend, monochromatic dressing. The best part? Once you’ve learned the basics, you can apply these tips to any colour or shade if red isn’t your thing! No matter what colour you chose, monochromatic looks are always slimming and sophisticated — and although this bold look was a bit outside of my comfort zone, I’m so glad I went for it! Get ready for a healthy dose of red-hot style inspiration, mashed up with an introduction to a handful of seasonal trends and an update on what to expect FASHION wise here at JustineCelina this summer (hint: get ready for tons of fresh content and the emergence of a brand new series!).
Fellow fashionistas, welcome back for the first TREND GUIDE of 2018! If the new year has you itching to upgrade your personal style or educate yourself about what’s hot this winter, you’ve come to the right place! Today I’m styling a handful of my favourite winter-to-spring trends in a colourful, artistic look — including red, chenille, berets, circular details, distressed hems and sock boots (I marched right into 2018 wearing my favourite pair!). I’m also sharing some of my favourite cold weather beauty staples and a look ahead at spring colour trends as forecasted by Pantone (because although it’s a new year, some things never change!).
Is there any better time than during an extreme cold warning to settle in for my Winter 2018 Trend Guide | Red Hot (sorry, couldn’t resist that pun!)? If you have half an hour to spare this weekend, I’d love you to join me in learning how to find the right red for your colouring, my best cold weather layering tips that won’t leave you looking overstuffed, where to score the best deals on outerwear and my favourite source for designer sunglass dupes (that’s right — mine were less than $20!). I’m also sharing how to style these key trends into spring if you’re planning ahead, or, you know, don’t live in one of the coldest places in the world. If you’re ready to inject some colour and fun to your winter wardrobe, this post is for you!
What better time to photograph a style post than during a heavy snowfall / extreme cold warning when you’re snowed in in the country… right?! I headed east to my childhood home in rural Alberta this past weekend and took the snowstorm as a perfect opportunity to shoot this Military Inspired look in the crisp white serenity of the prairies. It was a bit chilly, but these photos made it all worthwhile!
While the most of the world is gearing up for spring, arctic Canadian weather is still alive and well here in Alberta and February can often be our coldest month. As such, I’m a big fan of the statement coat — especially during the winter when your outerwear is your outfit. While I’ve always loved Military Inspired styles (this jacket is about 6 years old!) I was thrilled to see a resurgence of the military trend this winter — and today I’m showing you how to wear it! I’ve paired a classic Military Inspired statement coat with luxe winter accessories in a few of my favourite cold weather textures including faux fur and velvet. I truly believe a well constructed, Military Inspired coat is a timeless piece and a fantastic addition to dress up any winter wardrobe!
