Oh so Pretty

As much as we hate to admit it, the Summer is coming to an end and although we generally side with warmer, sunny weather, we can’t help but feel excited about some of the 2017 Fall trends. We’ll be sharing a report featuring all of our favourites in the coming weeks, but for now we’re going to focus in on one: metallics!

All things shiny are taking over with the seasonal shift, both in fashion and beauty, and you won’t hear any complaints from us here at RAOP. We are already eating up Dries Van Noten’s oversized oil slick jackets, Chanel’s glittery boots paired with glittery tights and of course Nina Richi’s full length metallic flamingo pink outfits.

Luckily this elegant and expensive looking trend doesn’t have to break the bank this fall. We put together an affordable metallic look with the help of Walmart’s fully loaded beauty section. Everything we used is on-trend, fairly-priced, good quality and most importantly, cruelty-free too! Here’s what we used to channel our favourite FW17 trend:

Hard Candy Metal Eyes Chrome Eye Shadow Kit ($8.98)

ELF Highlighting Dewy Drops ($5.97)

ELF Blending Sponge ($5.97)

Ardell Faux Mink Lashes ($9.97)

Hard Candy Clump Free Volumizing Mascara in Electric Blue ($6.98)

Hard Candy Baked Illuminating Duo ($8.98)

From eyes to cheeks and everything in between – Walmart has what you need at great prices to stay on top of the metallic trend this season!

Dress UpOh so Pretty

I can’t believe how quickly it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I’m slowly starting on my shopping and my home decor scheme (everyone has a scheme, right?) but most importantly I’m locking down my holiday look!

December and January are the one time of year when everyone can agree there is no such thing as “too much sparkle,” which means I feel right at home throughout the season! As soon as Halloween has passed, I’m ready to start dripping everything I own in tinsel and jewels, complimented by silky fabrics and lots of “winter pink.” Of course, my “theme” shifts from year to year, and this year I’ve settled on Glittery Glam!

Inspired by Edward Scissorhands and Betty Draper, I put this look together in my mind long before it came to fruition. Like months ago. With the help of some of my favourite online shops and the stacked new Inspired Beauty department at Rexall, all of my pink Christmas, party prom queen dreams came true. I scooped up this silky pink onesie from Choies and it paired perfectly with my gilded Charlotte Mills accessories. Topped off with glittering Leah Alexandra jewels from #shopRAOP, all that was left to complete the look was makeup!

When it comes to beauty, I look for two things: pretty packaging and convenience. Rexall’s new inspired Beauty Department covers both bases, and it doesn’t hurt that they have a candy aisle to stop in as well!

To put together this holiday cat eye and blush pink combo, I picked up NYX Liquid Crystal liner and Milani eyeshadow in “Bella Chiffon” for my eyes, NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator and Milani Powder Blush in “Tea Rose” for skin, and finally CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in “Pink Paws” for lips. I used the shadow for added highlights on my nose and cheekbones to get that extra snowy glow.

Are you ready to start rocking around the Christmas tree?
