Urban Decay’s new palette, Naked Smoky, has just hit stores and it has us ready to coordinate some amazing outfits! Who says your summer staples have to be boho chic? They can also be dark and edgy and there’s no better inspiration than the Naked Smoky palette. Ranging from airy taupe to moody plum, these colors refresh your look with stunning drama.

The palette is curated to make dramatic, professional-looking smoky eyes easy. Unlike its predecessors, Naked 1, 2, and 3, Naked Smoky spans across color families – cool, warm and neutral – so it’s a great fit for just about any skin tone. The colors are arranged in a gradient of light to dark shimmery shades and back from dark to light matte finishes. They include basic staples, bronzes, taupes, and even a pop of purple. The shades are Urban Decay’s signature creamy, pigment-packed product that we’ve come to love and expect. Every detail of this palette is perfection – even the packaging inspires!  Modeled after the smokey glass tables of the ‘70s, this palette has us scrambling for our wallets.

The combination of these tones can also refresh your summer style. Don’t be afraid to push boundaries and play with your personal palette. Summer is made for fun and adventure!

Spring is quickly approaching and color us inspired.

Pretty in Plum

This dreamy dark shade of purple was a big hit on the Spring 2015 runways. Style your lavish plum lipstick or eyeshadow with lighter shades of clothing. Pair a romantic lace white dress with tan sandal wedges — the neutrals will not overpower the rich mauve shade.

How do you stay true to your personal style while dressing for the winter? 
The cold can definitely put a damper on my style sometimes. I love to wear dresses and skirts, but when it’s 4 degrees outside, I have to make practical style decisions. No matter what time of year it is, I always like to maintain a mixture of super feminine pieces with a little rock n’ roll edge. I love the mixture of hard and soft when it comes to pairing prints and pieces, and I opt to wear a lot of wedges, printed/colored denim, and of course, sweaters. Color is key in the winter – the weather can be awfully dreary at times.
What winter accessory can’t you live without and why?
I need to have leather – a coat, pants, shoes. My favorite purchase this year has been this leather and wool jacket I bought at Forever 21. It has a motorcycle element to it, but the wool makes it a true winter coat.

What’s the most important thing you look for when shopping for a coat?
When shopping for the perfect winter outerwear, I want a coat that not only keeps me warm, but to stand alone outside of what I’m wearing underneath. I know I’ve found the right one when I try it on and feel like I can wear it with a pair of jeans… and feel dressed up. I’m drawn to coats that have a formal wear aspect to them, especially the hardware (like double breasted coats).
Who is your cold weather style inspiration?
Without a doubt, Alexa Chung is my favorite fashion muse – any season. She has a way of conveying her personality with fashion that is just… inspiring. Besides, she’s British… Can you blame me for admiring a well-dressed Brit?

What is your take on wearing heels in the winter? Yay or nay – and also, why? 

Heels during the winter are a total YAY! I think heels are perfect for any season to be truly honest. It can dress up any outfit and put a feminine touch to your look.
Does your personal style change from season to season? If so, how?
I stay pretty consistent with my personal style. I love the cold weather months more than the sunnier seasons because it allows me to layer, layer, layer!
image
What winter accessory can’t you live without?
I can’t live without my scarfs, hats and gloves. Being that I am from NYC, it gets pretty cold – sometimes people don’t get to see what I’m actually wearing so I dress up my coat with fun hats, scarfs and funky gloves!
What are your top three blizzard-proof beauty products you can’t live without?
It’s so hard to pick only three, but I can’t live without:
– L’oreal Voluminous Mascara (Even when I’m not wearing makeup, I always have mascara on)
– Boscia Daily Hydration Moisturizer (You should ALWAYS moisturize your skin, especially during the winter)
– Tinted Lipgloss (To add color to my lips)
