How Tuesday: Holiday Hair

Trying to figure out how to do your hair for this holiday season?  Well, the volume that so many women want can be done right in your own home!  We’re going to give you some tups on how to get that classy, sophisticated style without breaking the bank… like, at all.

The first think you need to know is that this only uses the top layer of the back of your hair.  That’s if!  So to start, run your fingers from the right and left side of your head to the back middle of your head, and pull that hair up.  Next, you’re going to slowly, using a thin comb, run the comb from the tip to the root of your hair.  Intermittently use a little hair spray.  Next, slowly let the hair fall, and take that comb and lightly smooth the top of your teased hair, like in the 5th picture.  Poof it up if you wish by taking the pointed end of the comb and pushing up.  Add a little more spray and you’re good to go!  All in under ten minutes.  Happy Holidays!

Summer to Fall

When colder weather rolls around it can be hard to wave goodbye to some of your summer staples. Luckily, by swapping out a few items, your favorite skirts and dresses can last well into the fall.

image

This sunny yellow lace skirt from Madewell is perfect for summer when paired with a simple white tank, sandals, our Georgina Necklace and Delano Stud Earrings. But even though the temperature changes, it doesn’t mean your whole wardrobe has to! Swap out your tank for a long-sleeved chambray, like this one from Anthropologie. Add some grey tights to keep you warm on those blustery fall days and a pair of cute ankle boots. Trade your summery jewelry for our Freya Necklace and Raya Stud Earrings and you’re set.

image

This lacey blue tank is perfect for a summer day at the beach. We love the way it looks paired with white shorts, espadrilles and silver jewelry, like our Tolani Earrings and Wave Triple Cuff. By adding some greys and deeper colors, this top can easily make the transition to fall. Swap out your shorts for your favorite pair of jeans, add a chunky grey cardigan, our Freya Bracelet and Georgina Silk Drop Earrings. Looking for something a little comfier? This look would also look great with dark leggings and boots.

How Tuesday: Wake Up Makeup

Chances are that when you wake up, you don’t look as fresh as you would like to. Maybe you’re taking on the week after a long weekend of friends and family, or maybe you simply have the Monday blues.  Well, to conquer the rest of your week, this How Tuesday is going to be all about brightening up your day, starting with your face!

Let’s be real, whether you play the role of a student intern for a jewelry company (weird, same!) or have a fulltime job, the last thing you want to do in the morning is pile makeup on your face.  Therefore, after much researching, us at Nissa have figured out just what to do to help you ladies look radiant for not only the whole day, but also the whole week.

Step 1: Face

After prepping with your favorite, lightweight moisturizer, apply your foundation.  Use your applicator of choice (fingers, sponge, brush), but note that using your fingers will give you the best blend.

Step 2: Eyes 

This is probably our most glaring problem.  Under our eyes is where we see the bags, the circles, and the tiredness.  Therefore, experts recommend using a thin brush to carefully apply a little bit of cover up on the inner and under part of the eye.  Using a nude liner, line the inner bottom part of your eyes.  Finish it off using an eyelash curler—a natural alternative to mascara.

image

Step 3: Cheeks 

Using a cream blush, blend in an upward motion to bring the overall look of your makeup higher.  Use a little bit of powder blush to ensure it’s all-day wear and to really extenuate cheekbones while adding a pop of color.  Take a look at these celebs—they did it just right!

image

Step 4: Lips

Although not a necessary step, adding anything from a gloss, peach, or even pink bit of color to your lips will brighten everything about your face up.

image

Final Tips?

Be healthy!  Always remember to eat right, nap often, and moisturize daily to ensure your body is getting what it really needs.  Happy Tuesday!

Punk Playground

Eighties punk and nineties grunge have us feeling rebellious in our Fall 2013 Collection. These two decades are making a comeback this fall, as seen in Junya Watanabe, Saint Laurent and Versace Fall Runway Shows. Our look book, Punk Playground, includes hints of tweed, plaid, gunmetal, chains and more to channel these returning trends.

image

This laid-back style survives off of layers of chains, plaid and embellishments. Delve into these rocker looks with our Georgina Chain ID Bangles, Georgina Chain Bracelets, Freya Bracelets and Cecelia Bracelet. Every unique piece can be easily stacked up your arms, around your neck or body to radiate the 80s punk/grunge era.
