Fashion Do: Bright Pink, Yellow, and Orange Neon Blazers

Blazers have always been a go to fashion item of mine but once Spring and Summer rolls around it's harder to keep them looking up to par for the season. Well, now you can by just brightening them up! Just like changing up you're nail color, hair color, and wardrobe to brighter colors during the onset of these sunny seasons, you can also brighten up a statement piece such as a blazer. The look is so simple yet gives off such a fashionable season statement as well as a pop of color. Personally, I have made it a mission to own ever bright colored blazer in the book (which I seem to have done except for purple which I have yet to see) but that's probably just because I'm so blazer obsessed!:P  Check out the bright blazer trend below!

Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian & Giuliana Rancic all look amaze and seem to be fans of the look too!

Nicki Minaj "StarShips" Music Video Makeup Tutorial

As we all know Nicki Minaj is known for her fun daring sense of fashion, and in her new music video "Starships" theres actually a scene where she's...wait for it...in a normal bathing suit?! Yup, that's something I've never seen in one of her videos before and the girl looked just as great! I'm usually used to the large broad shouldered jackets, multicolored jump suits, and bright colored candy dresses with the bright eye makeup and lipstick shades to match. But this time her look was pretty wearable except for the bright yellow/green hair but hey, it works for her and that's why we love her! This look really inspired me to do a makeup tutorial and I was excited because I've never done a look inspired by her before so here you have it: a transformed everyday wearable look with a winged flair liner, pink blush, and some mid nude pink lips to match.
