Unconventional Wedding Dresses – OROGOLD Reviews

With wedding season upon us once again, it is an ideal time to explore the world of wedding dresses. The big white meringue dress will usually come to mind, but these days, many brides are opting for something slightly more unconventional, whether it be an unusual color or a daring hemline. OROGOLD examines some of the most unconventional wedding dresses.

Embellishments
Ornate embellishments always make a dress seem more goddess-like, and look exceptional on a dress that has a simple silhouette. The top of the dress can be completely embellished, giving it a completely different texture and color from the rest of the dress. Embellishments also look great at the back of the dress, especially if the back is cut quite low, and gives your dress some great contrast with an edgier look.

Colors
Wedding dresses can be found in a variety of colors, aimed at more unconventional brides who enjoy taking risks with their style choices. A princess style wedding dress is classic, but a great way to fully embrace the fairytale aspect would be to opt for a pink princess dress. Lilac is also a color that is set to be huge in fashion and beauty this season, and lilac wedding dresses have been seen on runways. Silver is also a great wedding dress color, as it is not too far from white, can still be paired with a white veil, and will have you shimmering down the aisle.

A Wedding Dress Cover-Up
Beach weddings are usually more casual and low-key than traditional church ceremonies, and many are also very intimate, with only a few guests. When this is the case, an extravagant expensive gown is not needed, and there are some gorgeous sheer wedding dresses that double as a cover-up and can be worn over a white bikini or slip dress on your big day.

Wear the Pants
Whilst it may seem shocking to some, many brides are opting to ditch the dress altogether, and wear pants down the aisle, truly making a modern statement. You could either go for pants that are more tailored, and have a more extravagant top, or choose wide-legged pants that flow as you walk. Oscar De La Renta is a designer that has stunning examples of both.

Shorter Hemlines
There is no rule that states that wedding dresses need to be floor-length, and many brides enjoy the feeling of wearing a shorter dress, which, although unconventional, suits their style or body shape more than a floor-length gown. The length of the hemline is completely up to you, and no matter what you choose, they all still look great with a veil and other wedding accessories.

If you are choosing to go for a more unconventional wedding dress, it is even more important to make sure that it fits your body perfectly, so that your new look is stylish and not sloppy. Don’t be afraid to take chances with your wedding dress, and take the time to fully explore the more unconventional dresses out there. If there are certain elements that you like, collect images of these and look at getting your dress custom made for you, as you can then incorporate every design detail that you desire!

Beauty Looks for Your Big Day – OROGOLD Reviews

Planning in advance is always essential when it comes to your makeup for your wedding day. The amount of information out there can be overwhelming, so begin by taking the time to gather inspiration, and testing out certain aspects of the looks that you love. Whether you want to keep your look classic, or take some risks with an edgier style, we have put together some go-to beauty looks for your big day.

Prepare Your Skin
Preparing your skin can begin months in advance of your wedding, and if you are not someone who usually has regular facials, it is time to start doing so, whether you visit a salon or do them yourself at home. Schedule at least 3 monthly treatments before the big day, ensuring that your skin looks clear and luminescent.

A Rosy Glow
The color on your cheeks needs to be applied carefully, in order for it to perfectly offset the whiteness of the dress. Begin with a primer, ensuring that any makeup you apply will last throughout the whole course of the day, leaving you to focus on having a great time. Trying out different beauty products that will help you to achieve the best look is important. Make sure that you are wearing a white top when you are trialling your makeup, to give you a better idea of what it will look like in contrast to the white. If you plan on using a fake tan, make sure it is one that you have used successfully before, and know exactly how much to apply.

Keep it Simple
It is likely that most of your wedding photographs will be taken using natural lighting, which means that any heavy makeup might look overdone in your photos. It is best to keep it simple, avoiding heavy foundations and defining your eyes without the use of dense colors. A look that is always romantically feminine is to subtly line your lids, keep your cheeks rosy and flushed, and use a rich wine-colored lipstick, for a gorgeous berry look.

Kissable Lips
The lipstick that you choose to wear for your wedding ceremony is possibly one of the most vital makeup decisions that you will be making. Do not choose a lipstick that is too glossy, as this will be unlikely to last for too long. You should also not choose a lipstick that is too matte, as you do not want your lips drying out before the big kiss. Instead, choose a long-lasting moisturizing lipstick and apply several thin layers of it, blotting your lips in between each application, to make sure that it will be long-lasting and will wear off evenly.

It can be tempting to follow current trends when it comes to choosing your wedding day beauty look, but it is usually best to stay clear of these and opt for something more classic. Once you have chosen the specific look that you want, experiment with it over the course of a few weeks, adapting it so that it works best for your skin tone and facial features. As long as you make sure that your skin is healthy and your makeup is kept relatively simple, there is no doubt that you will look absolutely stunning on your big day.

Spring Beauty Trends to Try Now – OROGOLD Reviews

Each new season brings with it fresh new beauty trends, that have made their debut appearance on runways across the world. This spring is no exception, and we have brought together three of the most exciting beauty trends for this season, giving you a whole new dose of makeup inspiration.

Drawing on a serious cat eye

Cat-Eyes
When it comes to cat eyes, there are two directions that you can take; subtle or bold. For a subtle look, which is great for the daytime and even to wear to work, use a liquid or pen eyeliner to draw a line over the top of your eyelid near to your lashes, flicking the line upwards at the corner. Bold cat eyes are also huge this spring, and the graphic look is easy to achieve with the right eyeliner. The method is the same, except that the line you draw needs to be much thicker, and rather than a delicate outward flick, you can go heavy with your line, creating a graphic shape around the outside of your eye. You can also buy thick graphic eyeliners, meaning that you only need to draw the line once rather than multiple times with a standard eyeliner. For those of you with shaky hands, try using a teaspoon as a guide, holding it against your eye and drawing your lines around it.

Pops of Color
Bursts of color around your eyes are a refreshing change from heavy black lids, and are perfect for spring. There are some gorgeous new eyeshadow shades available in yellows and magenta, or you could also use a wet brush to create a colored eyeliner. For a flattering shade that works with every skin tone, try lavender. Blend this over your eyes with a mauve shade for an extra special look. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup light and minimal, as you want the purple tones to look fresh and cool rather than heavy and overdone.

The Natural Glowing Look
This look has been seen on countless catwalks, and is a step up from the classic natural look. Instead of just focussing on a flawless complexion, the aim of this look is to make it seem as though your skin is luminescent and glowing from within. Keep your skin well moisturised and opt for a light coating of foundation, avoiding multiple layers. Use a highlighter to contour your cheekbones, also applying it around your eyes, to really make them seem bright. Keep your lips nude, either with a nude colored lipstick or a sheer lip gloss. A gold lipstick also works extremely well with this look, as it adds a rich shimmer to your lips whilst keeping them looking natural. To keep your eye makeup subtle, choose eyeshadow colors in shades of bronze, or even better, one with flecks of gold, which will really bring a luxurious sparkle to your face.

It is always fun to experiment with new makeup trends, adjusting certain elements so that they suit your own facial features and skin tone. The most important things to remember are to keep your foundation light, make the most of highlighting and contouring your features, and add bursts of bright color around your eyes, keeping your look fresh and minimalistic.

Pastel Picks for Your Spring Wardrobe – OROGOLD Reviews

Fashion this spring is all about simple elegance in sugary-sweet shades of understated brights. The mix of pastels bring about an ethereal feeling, with minimalism and nature both huge inspirations to the color palette. Rather than having to buy a whole new closet, we have put together some key pastel pieces that are worth the investment, and which you can easily mix and match with items that you already own.

A Pastel Trench Coat 
Trench coats are right on trend this season, with a pastel colored one even more so. Originating from menswear, the design of a trench coat really stands out when it is in a pastel shade. It is also a great piece to own if you are still on the fence when it comes to wearing pastel colors, as it is something that you can throw over any outfit. If a pastel coat seems too feminine for you, choose one that has its trench coat details enhanced, and is made from a heavier or textured fabric. For those who like the idea of pastel colored outerwear but don’t want a trench coat, opt for a pastel colored blazer instead, which you can wear to work as well as in the evenings.

Pastel Colored Jeans
This spring, denim is going upmarket, with many denim garments featuring intricate stitching and design details. A pair of jeans in an ice blue shade is a great way to embrace both the denim and pastel trends at the same time, without making your outfit look over the top. A candy colored pink pair of jeans would also be a good purchase, and can be worn with neutrals and light colors to ensure your look keeps its dreamy elegance. If pastel pink jeans are too bland for your tastes, choose a torn or distressed pair, giving your look a bit of edge. You can also pair them with tougher materials, such as a leather jacket.

Neon-Pastels
The term neon-pastels may seem like a bit of a contradiction, but the colors that this term refers to will brighten up your outfit whilst keeping your look trendy and stylish. In terms of actual color, neon-pastels would include shades that are reminiscent of children’s artificial sherbet, such as lime, raspberry and lemon. Choose garments in vividly saturated candy colors, giving a slight twist to the pastel trend. These colors also look great around the eyes, so think about the makeup you like to wear whilst choosing the color of your next purchase.

If you are still unsure about adding pastel colors to your wardrobe, start off with accessories, such as sunglasses or shoes, in ice cream shades, or with individual garments that you can wear with neutral colors. When choosing garments with prints, look for designs that emphasise the times of childhood simplicity, with retro patterns and floral art. For those looking to purchase just one statement piece this season but can’t decide which pastel color to choose, go for lilac, as it is not only one of the standout shades for this spring, but it also looks great against every skin tone.

Must-Know Makeup Trends for Spring Summer 2015 – OROGOLD Reviews

The spring and summer season of each year welcomes new makeup trends, many of which can sometimes take time and patience to perfectly achieve. OROGOLD found out that this year, the hottest makeup trends all focus on minimalism, allowing our faces to radiate and glow whilst limiting the use of heavier makeup to your eyes.

A Radiant Complexion
A radiant and luminous complexion was a beauty trend that was seen on many runways at fashion weeks around the world. A quick and simple way to achieve this is by massaging your skin, which enhances the circulation of blood around your face, making your cheeks seem rosy. You can then apply some primer to enable your skin to radiate even more. Choose a flesh colored lipstick, or just a transparent lip gloss, to emphasize this look.

Makeup that Can’t be Seen
When the natural, fresh and minimal look is mentioned in terms of beauty, this does not mean that you shouldn’t use any makeup. Instead, the trick is to apply your makeup in a way that makes it seem as though you aren’t wearing any. Try to enhance your natural skin color, as well as its texture and its natural glow. For fresh looking skin, use a sheer foundation, avoiding multiple layers. At the Houghton show, skin finishing powders with gold deposits were swept across the cheekbones of the models, making it seem as though there was bright sunlight bouncing off wet skin. If your freckles are something that you normally try to hide, now is the time to embrace them. Use a lip pencil to enhance your freckles, even adding more in some places.

Statement-Making Eyes
Whilst the rest of your makeup is kept quite low-key, you can dress your eyes to make a statement. The classic smoky eye, although a convenient go-to look, was not seen as much on the runways. Instead, mascara was the main cosmetic item used on the eyes, with a clumpy max lash effect featuring on many catwalks. Keep your lashes thick, allowing them to frame your eyes. Use eyeliner to create a thicker line, giving your look some edge and personality.

Festival-Inspired
Many of the beauty looks for this spring and summer seemed to be inspired by festivals, featuring tie-dyed colors and washed out bright shades. To keep your makeup looking modern, try to avoid using much foundation if you plan to use bright colors, which will also add just the right amount of nonchalance to your look. At the Marques Almeida show in London, sunbleached pastel colors were added under the eyes of the models, whilst the models at the Alex Mabille show had copper colored eyelids.

The makeup trends for this spring and summer focus on embracing the natural version of yourself, whilst enhancing certain aspects to make your natural version even better. OROGOLD recommends you to keep your skin light and fresh, and let your eyes do the talking, either with a thick frame of lashes or some carnival inspired color. Don’t try to hide your imperfections, and instead try to truly embrace them and let them shine, as these features are what makes your face unique.

Update Your Wardrobe for Spring

Now that the dreary days of winter seem to be mostly behind us, it is time to begin thinking about updating your wardrobe, putting aside your cold weather go-to pieces for some new spring essentials. Luckily, many of the fashion trends this spring will make it easy to incorporate pieces that you are likely to already own, whilst others are classic looks that are worth investing in, as they are bound to find a long-term home in your wardrobe. OROGOLD Cosmetics helps you update your wardrobe for Spring.

Denim
Almost everybody owns something made of denim, be it a pair of jeans or a jacket. This year, denim will be going upmarket, with many pieces featuring intricate stitching and other design details. If you are looking to add a new pair of jeans to your wardrobe, look for a high waist flared style, or even a boot-cut. For those who are fans of denim, now is the time to experiment with other denim garments, such as dresses, culottes and dungarees.

Flats
Women around the world could not have been happier when they saw that flat, comfortable shoes were once again on trend for this spring. Flat does not have to mean boring, and there are a whole range of styles out there, from loafers to brogues.

Shirts
There were such a variety of shirts seen on runways for this spring, from gingham to polo shirts. The checked pattern is always an easy one to incorporate into your look, and can be worn in a variety of ways. White is a color that will be popular this spring, and a crisp white shirt makes a beautifully understated impression. Choose one that has other interesting elements, such as lace, or a translucent fabric, to really stand out from the crowd.

The 70s
Another big trend this spring is the 70s, with many different looks that you can add to your wardrobe. From jewel-toned fringed shirts to chocolate suede, you can add a sense of the 70s to your style just from the fabrics that your clothes are made from. One great 70s inspired item is the pencil skirt, which can be worn during the day as well as dressed up at night. ORO GOLD recommends you to choose one that is made from high quality fabric and make sure you try sitting down in it before you buy it, as the fabric needs to flatter you no matter what you are doing.

Trench Coats
Trench coats always seem to make their way back into the spotlight, mostly due to the way that designers can easily modernize them with different details and fabrics. A light trench coat is a great way to stay warm but stylish this spring, and you will find them in a variety of shades and prints. For something a little different, look for one that is made of a light and draping fabric, such as a silky wool, which you can wear over loose trousers for a luxurious yet relaxed evening look.

Spring is a great time of the year to add some new styles to your wardrobe, giving it a fresh burst of life just in time for the arrival of warmer weather. When buying new pieces, think about which ones would work well with items you already own, as well as what would work best on a daily basis when incorporated into your own personal style.

Cinderella Fashion Inspiration is Everywhere!

Cinderella fashions

 

Cinderella, one of the most classic fairy tales of all time, has captivated and enchanted generations of females all over the world, and the latest take on the story is the newly released feature film, starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett. When it comes to fashion, Cinderella’s style is not just for children’s costumes. Many great designers have been inspired by the timeless tale, and it is also easy to put together a Cinderella-inspired look of your own. OROGOLD reviews the top Cinderella fashion inspirations here.

Cinderella-Inspired Shoe Collection at Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks Fifth Avenue have just launched a shoe collection that has been inspired by Cinderella. Rather than choosing one designer to create the collection, Saks gathered together nine of the world’s best shoe designers, each using their vivid imagination to create their own take on Cinderella’s glass slipper. These modern glass slippers have been designed by iconic names including Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo and Nicholas Kirkwood, and are currently on display, and on sale, at Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods in London and Galleries Lafayette in Paris.

Lauren Conrad’s Cinderella Fashion Collection
Style setter Lauren Conrad, who first rose to fame in reality shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, has teamed up with Disney and launched a fashion collection for Kohl’s, inspired by the movie. The designer drew inspiration from many iconic elements of the movie, creating a collection of romantic separates and whimsical dresses.

Harrods, London
Harrods, one of the most famous department stores in the world, has dedicated their window display to Disney’s movie. The six windows showcase some of the amazing costumes that were worn in the movie, which were designed by Sandy Powell. The scenes that the windows feature include the stepsisters trying on the glass slipper, and the romantic weddin scene. The nine glass slippers that are on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue are also displayed in the windows.

Put Together Your Own Cinderella Look
When it comes to creating a Cinderella-inspired look without having to spend too much money, there are many options available. Your accessories are the most important element, and a wide satin headband is essential. Choose one that is white, light blue or silver. A wide satin ribbon can also be used. Find some large studded earrings that match with your headband, such as large pearls, but avoid anything that is long and dangling. When picking shoes for your Cinderella outfit, it is unlikely that you will have a pair of glass slippers lying around. Instead, choose some pumps in a similar color to your headband, preferably ones that have a shimmery quality to them. For the rest of your outfit, stick to the color scheme of light blue, white and silver, and you will have created your very own Cinderella look.

You can use Cinderella to inspire any type of outfit, for both day and night. Be subtle with your makeup, as you do not want it to look over the top, and be careful about how many Cinderella elements you wear at the same time. ORO GOLD recommends you to get inspired by both the story and the movie, and experiment with different combinations until you find the Cinderella look that works best for you.

2015 Golden Glow Awards – OROGOLD’s Favorite Beauty Looks

Orogold’s 2015 Golden Glow Awards features some of the best beauty looks for this year. From a healthy bronzed complexion to sultry smoky eyes, these looks are perfect for every occasion this spring and summer.
Gorgeous woman with a glowing complexion.A Glowing Complexion
A glowing complexion that looks naturally and subtly bronzed is great for both day and night, and is a look that is simple to achieve. To begin with, lightly brush your usual foundation over your face, giving it a thin coating. Next, use a highlighter under your eyes, above your brow, and down the length of your nose, giving your face a much brighter look. If you don’t have a highlighter, you can use a foundation that is one shade lighter than your usual color. Next, use some bronzer around the contours of your face, going from the hollows of your cheeks up to your hairline. You can also apply some across your forehead and along your jawline for even more definition. Then, use the highlighter again on your cheekbones and around the outside corners of your eyes. Finally, apply a light layer of blush to the apples of your cheeks to complete your glowing look.

Glamorous Smoky Eyes 
This is a great go-to look when you don’t have much time, as it is quick to do and always looks great, especially with glowing bronzed skin. Prime your eyes and then add a dark shade along your upper and lower lash line, starting off thin and gradually making it thicker as your near your outer eye. Blend it well and then apply a darker shade on top of this, which you also need to blend in. Use a light shade along your brow bone to intensify the look, and then finish it with some black kohl eye liner and a coating of mascara.

A Nude Pout 
Nude lips are bang on trend at the moment, and are perfect for accentuating heavy makeup around the eyes. There are many nude shades of lipstick available, but for something extra special, look for a gold lipstick. Blend this onto your lips with the nude, and you will notice your lips look plumper and have more of a shimmer to them. Apply a couple of layers of a plumping lip gloss if you want a shinier pout.

Beautiful woman with long brown hair and perfect looking skin.

Effortless Hair 
ORO GOLD believes that the best way to keep the attention on your gorgeously glowing face is to make sure that your hair style is not too distracting. Effortless styles that look simple and chic are the best way to go for 2015. Avoid any tight buns and ponytails, and instead try a loose, low ponytail, tied below the nape of your neck.

There has been so much beauty inspiration recently, especially after all of the fashion weeks in cities around the world. Our favorite beauty looks feature some trendy yet classic styles that will suit every outfit and occasion, whilst being simple and easy to achieve.

OROGOLD Reviews the 5-2 Makeup Trend – OROGOLD Reviews

Beautiful redhead woman applying makeup.

We keep hearing about all sorts of diet routines that are supposed to go a long way in making us look thin. One of the most common diet strategies of late has been the 5-2 diet, where women eat normally for five days and restrict their food intake for the other two days. OROGOLD Cosmetics discovered that women are now switching to the same routine when it comes to makeup: applying normal makeup for five days and staying makeup free for two days. Some experts have gone on to state that going makeup free for two days in a week should help with glowing and younger-looking  skin because it allows the skin to “cleanse” itself from the irritating chemicals that many cosmetics contain. When ORO GOLD first came across this trend, we felt a bit skeptical. After all, being a luxury skin care brand, we like to base our decisions on real science and proven results.  OROGOLD decided to review the 5-2 makeup trend to highlight the factors that work for and against it so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to taking care of your skin.

Factors that Work Against the 5-2 Makeup Trend

It is always better to adjust your routine all seven days of the week
The 5-2 makeup routine isn’t any different from when you go on a diet. Eating healthy food for five days and undoing all the good work by following it with two days of junk food probably won’t earn you the physique you are looking to acquire. Similarly, going makeup free for just two days a week will not do as much good for your skin as you may hope. The ideal way to “detox” your skin is to modify your makeup routine and ensure that you use the right products. Rather than going makeup free for two days, you would be better off paying attention to removing your makeup every night and ensuring that you don’t makeup that is too heavy or not right for your skin type.

Nightly cleansing is all the “detox” that your skin needs
Most modern-day  cosmetics can last for about 24 hours. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to leave them on your face throughout the day and night. One of the most common mistakes made by women is that they leave the makeup on their face at night. Numerous studies have shown the amount of damage that this habit can cause to your skin. In fact, leaving makeup on your skin is known to be one of the surest ways to age earlier than usual. Cleansing your skin every night lets you remove the makeup from your face, thereby allowing your pores to breathe. This prevents issues like irritation and acne breakouts. Moreover, regular cleansing also helps with skin exfoliation, something that lets you get rid of the dry and damaged cells to reveal forever young looking  skin.

Makeup isn’t always bad for your skin
Avoid using makeup if it dries or irritates your skin. There was a time when makeup could wreak havoc on your skin, but most modern-day cosmetics are known to contain ingredients that are not harmful for the skin. In fact, some might even contain ingredients that offer skin benefits. There is one single solution when it comes to makeup. You need to follow your makeup applications with proper skin care. If you’re applying makeup regularly, processes like cleansing and moisturizing become all the more important. As long as you’re serious about your skin care routine and take proper care of your skin, makeup application shouldn’t hurt or damage your skin.

Factors that Work For the 5-2 Makeup Trend

Going makeup free regularly  may help diminish certain skin issues
Many people suffer from issues like dermatitis rashes or rosacea when they forget to take the makeup off before sleeping or use heavy creams as a part of their skin care. This usually occurs because of the demodex mites that suck the oil out from the skin. Such patients are always advised to sleep with a bare face. The same rule applies for those using retinol-based skin care products. The idea is that taking a night or two off helps the skin to replenish itself and mitigate issues it suffers from.

The Showdown
Although the 5-2 makeup trend does have a few favorable factors, it’s nothing new. A better way of bringing about youthful and younger-looking  skin is to take proper care of your skin and concentrate on processes such as cleansing and moisturizing the skin if you use makeup regularly. It always helps to ensure that the makeup you use doesn’t contain any ingredients that could potentially damage your skin.

So what do you think of the 5-2 makeup trend? Do you really think that it’s effective? Or do you feel that you’re better off being serious about your skin care? Let OROGOLD know using the comments below.
