Trend Alert: High-Low Skirts/Dresses

It is without a doubt that the high-low hemline is IN for this summer. It’s everywhere! Have you ever had a hard time deciding between wearing a mini skirt or a maxi skirt or between a mid-length dress or a maxi dress? Well, high-low skirts and dresses serve as a great compromise. Think of it as having the best of both worlds! The unique hemline adds a flirtatious feel to these clothing items, allowing for you to show off your legs in a new, eye-catching way. Paired with a nice pair of heels, your outfit can instantly be transformed into one suitable for a dressy occasion – maybe a first date? OR wear your high-low skirt or dress with a good pair of sandals or wedges for a more casual feel. Below are two ideas for styling both a high-low skirt and dress:

Quick How To: Curl Your Eyelashes

Curling your eyelashes is an easy technique that you can use before applying your mascara to make your eyes appear more awake and to give your eyes or makeup look a flirty touch. This technique also enhances and thickens your eyelashes without the difficulties of applying false lashes. It may seem like an intimidating task at first, but after some practice, you will be able to upgrade your eye look in no time.

Things you’ll need:

  • An eyelash curler
  • A spooly brush (optional)

Instructions

  1. Sit up straight and look straight ahead. This will help you to place the eyelash curler correctly on the lashes.
  2. Open up your eyelash curler and position it at the base of your lashes.
  3. Gently clamp the eyelash curler down for 3 seconds.
  4. Open the curler and move it up to the middle of your lashes.
  5. Gently clamp the eyelash curler down for 3 seconds.
  6. Open the curler and move it up towards to the tip of your lashes.
  7. Gently clamp the eyelash curler down for another 3 seconds.
  8. Repeat steps 1-7 on the other eye.
  9. If you want to make your lashes appear even thicker, take a spooly brush and comb through the lashes, starting at the base and working your way up to the tips of the lashes.

Warnings:

  • Be careful to not clamp the eyelash curler down on the skin of your eyelid.
  • Try not to blink too hard while the curler is clamped onto your lashes.

Welcome to Everyday Classy!

Hello there and welcome to my new blog – Everyday Classy!

My name is Mariah, and I have decided to start my very own style blog because I find myself browsing through  fashion/beauty websites on a daily basis and have found a great interest in anything style-related. I love learning new ways to create outfits, accessorize, and apply makeup. Anything involving shoes, clothes, makeup, designer labels, and handbags has my heart. In my free time, you can find me window shopping online. (Some of my friends think I have a problem).

What I hope to accomplish from my blog is to provide advice to fashion and beauty-conscious young people. Since I am also a college student, my funds to support my love of fashion are sort of, well…low. This is why I hope to help those who are just like me and focus on giving style tips and ideas for less. But I don’t want to stop there! Every now and then, I’ll also post helpful tips on everyday life, ranging from interview techniques to healthy eating habits. After all, looking the part isn’t the only ingredient to feeling great and living a successful, enjoyable life!

As I work on my blog over the next few months, if you have any suggestions on posts that I could do, please leave them in the comments below!

Stay classy!
