BEAUTY | THE HOLIDAYS

Ph. by Maximilian P.

The holidays are coming and I am really excited to spend this year's festivities with my love, friends and family. But of course any Christmas wouldn't be complete without a nice make-up look! That's why I teamed up with Estée Lauder to show you my day and night look for Christmas. To finish the day and night make-up look, I wear some of the delicate jewelry and a gorgeous watch of Tommy Hilfinger, a brand that simply always fits my holidays mood.

NIGHT

After my daily make-up routine of crème, concealer and powder for the perfect matte look, I always start with the eyes. For Christmas and New year's Eve I tend to use more brown, gold and bronze shades of the eyeshadow palette from Estée Lauder, to create a chic smokey eye look. I finish the eyes with multiple layers of mascara. My trick is to use a little bit of the darkest shade instead of eye pencil and with this I follow the contours under your eyes. For the lips I am in love with one of the newest colors of Estée Lauder; called berry kiss Violet. It is a shiny and warm color and perfect for the Christmas holiday evenings. For the nails I prefer the colors classic red or burgundy, because it fits every party outfit.

DAY

For the day make-up during a Christmas breakfast or during unpacking your Christmas gifts, I prefer a more simple and easy make-up. For the eyes I use light pink shades from the multiple color palette of Estée Lauder you see in the picture. I put this on right under the eyebrow and at the arcade arch and. After this I apply one layer of mascara. For the lips I choose a matte pink-color from the Estée Lauder 'Lips to envy' collection. To finish, I use a peach toned blush on the cheeckbones.

LOOK | WONDERFUL WHITE

Ph. by Maximilian P.
 
It is obvious that this modern ambiance of architecture influenced my outfit, my mood..my everything. We shot this look on a secret, truly breathtaking location, part of one of the most beautiful resorts in Mallorca. White was already one of my favorite colors before. White to wear, white walls and bricks for houses and white as basic color of interior design. Somehow white cleanses my head and gives me new ideas and inspiration. White stands for serenity, calmness and an escape from every-days madness. But seriously, this location, the architecture, the pattern of beams...how beautiful different shades of white can be in combination with a dark blue sky. The sun reflecting on the beams and the walls, creating a pattern of dazzling light and the heat, the setting. First it all took me by surprise, later all I could be was overwhelmed.

For this post I choose a minimalistic and feminine look, simply because with this location there seemed to be no other choice. But that was not enough, the situation needed a sleek hairstyle and a bold make-up with a bright orange lipstick in my opinion. Normally I don't wear lipstick a lot, but with some outfits and for some occasions it is essential. And this beautiful day in Mallorca was definitely one of these occassions. 
 
Just to let you know, this post is a preview, a sneek peak, of a new exciting project we are working on for months now. Soon I will tell you more about it. What I can reveal now is that Lararosestyle is going to make new steps forward as from January onwards. I hope you are going to enjoy. We for sure are looking forward to it.

LOOK | ESCADA ESCAPE

 Ph. by Maximilian P. 

An escape to Escada. I'm excited to share this new look we shot in collaboration with one of the world's leading luxury brands: Escada. I am wearing their newest collection and these photos are made in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, a great city with culture, sun and that special warm Spanish atmosphere, but also with exciting modernism. It is this rather unusual, but nevertheless wonderful combination, which suits the latest Escada collection perfectly. Escada stands for modern elegance, cool glamour and sensual femininity. The brand, founded in 1978 by Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley, provides a distinct sense of refined quality and excellent fit and is characterized by color, print, and the love for detail. Furthermore, their high standard of workmanship appeals to my heart. So yeah, you can always dress me up in Escada and send me to Spain whenever you want. Because be honest, sometimes it is good to escape..

This look consists a pastel coloured outfit with contrast and edgy details. The cashmere sweater and the capri pants in the same pink tone have the perfect fit and are easy to combine with the rest of your wardrobe. The jacket is from the finest leather with handmade details gives the oufit just that extra something and of course the clutch in metallic pink with golden Escada details is an eye-catcher.

LOOK | POWER OR PEACE

 Ph. by Maximilian P.

Sometimes you want to wear power. Feminine power of course.  Just like the soft and tough side within every woman, the contrast between black and blue is always there. Sometimes these colours are impossible to match, but sometimes the very combination black and blue just gives you that extra edge. 

Well, this outfit certainly does. The zipped skirt brings that extra power and the wonderful blue feminine shoes and tight dark blue top are made to impress. A hat to protect you from the sun and you are ready to buy a French bread from any lovely smelling small town bakery where time stood still since ages and old ladies are looking at you like you were born in hell, but secretly thinking back at the old days, in which they were wearing the same scandalous outfits to the horror of their parents and grandparents! 

Me? I am just into fashion and I feel great in this outfit, while the late afternoon sun is leaving traces of joy on my skin and plays with my shadow on the walls of the old houses.

The bread tasted delicious and the stroll in the little village made me wonder whether we are totally out of our minds living the big city rush hour life. People in this sunlit Mediterranean village seemed to have lost track of time and I reciprocating was looking secretly at them, admiring them for their slow paced life and peacefulness. Everybody here seemed to have accepted his or her fate calmly, instead of bursting out in anger or struggling with ambition. It made me wonder…who knows really what is the best way of living? 
 

LOOK | CLASSIC PIECES

 Ph. by Maximilian P.

The combination of a clear blue sky and wearing some classic pieces is never out of fashion. Actually it's exactly how fashion and life should be. Ofcourse my mood and environment determine my look of the day. But some timeless pieces are always a good choice, no matter where you are, or what you do. A white silk blouse and leather shorts always make me happy. For this look I chose a khaki green color, a deep and warm color for fall. I'm also on the hunt for more pieces in this nice color for the coming season. To finish this look I'm wearing a bold chain necklace and a delicate locker from Micheal Kors newest collection. The look is feminine and holds somewhere in the middle of casual and chic. The accessoires, bag and shoes you choose with these timeless pieces, are important to make the look exactly the way you want. Add the right elements with care and you will get that special vibe that you are looking for, so that you are the woman that you want to be. For this shoot I chose white heels with golden metallic details from the brand Dune Londen to add that feminine touch and a Gucci bag that matches the color of the shorts. Together with the jewelry this made the simple outfit the way I wanted it to be.
