OROGOLD-What-to-Wear-Spring-2016

With spring slowly approaching, it will soon be time to shed those winter layers and add some fresh new looks to your wardrobe. From exposed shoulders to big bold stripes, here is everything you need to know about what to wear this spring.

Low-Slung Pants
Casual elegance looks set to be big this spring with low-slung pants quickly becoming all the rage. If you want a pair that is able to suit just about any occasion, opt for one that is slightly tailored, as you can pair this with a smart shirt for work or with a t-shirt for the weekends.

Exposed Shoulders
Otherwise known as the cold shoulder, you will notice that everything from dresses to shirts to blouses this spring will feature cut-outs intended to highlight the shoulders. This is a great way to expose some skin while still keeping warm, and will definitely make any outfit a little bit sexier.

A Sparkling Shimmer
For those of you who hate having to wait until the holidays to bring out your favorite sparkly pieces, you won’t need to do that for much longer, as one of the trends set for this spring is plenty of shimmer and shine. This could apply to everything from a stylish evening gown to a pair of everyday shorts, making any garment look extra-special.

White Shirts
White shirts are a classic, but this spring is a great time to give this old favorite a high fashion twist. From ruffled sleeves to slashes across the stomach, white shirts are being re-imagined just in time for spring.

Victorian Inspired
When choosing new garments for this spring, try incorporating a few pieces into your wardrobe that have Victorian-inspired design features. Whether this may be ruffled sleeves or a high neckline, features from the Victorian era are set to be huge this spring, but with many modern touches to keep them rooted in this season.

Bold Stripes
Stripes quite often make a comeback in the spring, and this season, wide bold stripes are what you should be wearing. Look for bright and contrasting shades in any silhouette, whether it be a baggy t-shirt or a special occasion dress.

Patch Embellished Bags
Bags are set to be bright and vibrant this spring, and another bag trend to take note of are the embellished patches that have been seen all over the runways. These embellishments will definitely make even the most understated bag stand out, and have a classic look that makes them worth the investment.

Statement Earrings
When it comes to your accessories this spring, make sure that you have a pair of statement earrings that you love to wear. Look for styles that are graphic and structured but still slightly unusual, whether this may be due to their abstract shade or their vivid hue.

Spring is always a good time to embrace a new style or a couple of exciting trends, and there more than enough to choose from for 2016. Whether you begin to wear high fashion versions of the classic white shirt to work, or opt for shimmery hues for your casual wear, all of these exciting looks will soon be taking over the streets from London to New York.

Exotic Beauty Looks – OROGOLD Reviews

Exotic beauty is a look that many women try to achieve, as it is a great alternative to usual day or night makeup. From accentuating the shape of your eyes to enhancing the color of your skin, there are many simple ways to add exotic elements to your makeup regime. OROGOLD offers a few simple tips to enjoy an exotic beauty look.

Now that the consequences of lying out in the sun are widely known, there have been some great new tanning products out on the market. Before applying your makeup, give yourself a good base to start with by choosing a foundation that is a couple of shades darker than your skin color. If your skin is quite pale, apply a thin layer to the backs of your hands as well. For an all-over sun-kissed glow, there are some great moisturizing tanning lotions out there, and they can be used on your face as well as your body.

This is a bold and edgy look, and works well when the rest of your makeup is kept minimal. To begin with, apply an eye base from your lids to your brows, to smooth out any imperfections, and then apply a matte eye shadow. Next, use a white kohl pencil to line the bottom waterline, extending the outer corner wing outwards along the natural shape of your eye. Line your top and bottom lash lines with a black kohl liner, extending the outer wings so that there is a line above and below the white line you previously drew. Use a liquid liner to then sharpen and emphasize the black lines. Depending on how dramatic you want the look to be, mascara and fake lashes can also be used.

A subtle lip color can perfectly complete any look, and depending on the products you choose, can give your face an exotic edge. A sun-kissed red lipstick looks great with most skin tones, and can be worn with a plumping lip gloss to add volume to your lips. A sparkling lip gloss worn on its own is also a great choice, especially for during the day.

Exotic Lace
Lace is sexy yet mysterious, and when used in the right way, can give you an alluring exotic look. Lace can be used as a template and held over your face while you apply makeup around it. You can also use the lace itself, cutting it in a way to allow a piece to surround one of your eyes and disappear into your hair. For something more subtle, use the patterns of lace as inspiration for the patterns you draw with your makeup.

Exotic looks are fun to experiment with, as they are different from the way in which we usually apply our makeup. You can either adapt parts of these looks to your own style, for a subtle exotic appeal, or you can put a few of them together for a more dramatic and glamorous finished look.

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.
