OROGOLD on Runway Trends for Winter Beauty – ORO GOLD Reviews

Models walking down the runwayWinter beauty is one of the things women most look forward to every season. Where better to look for inspiration than the Runways and luxury designer Fashion Shows? So many ideas can be found and inspiration gathered through paying attention to what’s out and trending now. Perhaps you might not like the style of how certain products are being worn, but you will most likely get ideas on the colors of the season, the looks important to the season, and how each product is being worn. High fashion cosmetic application isn’t for everyone as sometimes, it’s a bit extravagant, but it definitely does set the tone for cosmetic companies and makeup artists following in hot pursuit of the trendiest looks.

At Vine Vera, we’ve done some research of our own on the runway beauty trends, so we’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you. If you want to know what the hottest looks in makeup application are now, read on.

All Natural Look

More isn’t always better. Going for a fresh, clean look with minimal makeup – or what appears to be minimal makeup – is a great look this winter. Pair a nude or light pink lipstick with some light colored blusher, such as a light pink rose hue, and top it off with some mineral powder or foundation to even out the skin tone and give a glowing look. Try using a coat of mascara and nix the eyeliner for an all-natural look that says, “I woke up like this!”

Bold Eyes and Brows

One of the hottest trends this season is wearing a boldly lined eye – both top and bottom – with bigger brows. One way to obtain this look is to use a bold, chunky eye liner pencil with good smudging capability, a blender or smudge stick or brush, and some brow filling powder. If you aren’t good with filling in the brows by hand, feel free to use eyebrow stencils, which are available nearly everywhere cosmetics are sold.

Dark Lipstick

Dark lips are making a big statement on the runways this season, and many women love the look. From dark, rich berry tones to dark reds and browns, this look is something every woman of every skin tone can appreciate, because it works well for them all. To get the appearance of bigger, fuller lips, you could line the lips just outside of the actual lip line, or even apply the lipstick as you normally would and then dot some gloss onto the center of the bottom lip and around the cupids bow to give your pout a juicy, bigger appearance.

Cat Eye Look

Whether you opt for big, bold cat eyes or a swoopy elongated wing style, cat eyes are all the rage! You can use any color eyeliner you’d like to complete this look, but traditionally, it’s done with a coal black liner. Neon colors are also very in this season, so if you’re feeling bold and are getting ready for a night out, feel free to experiment with more vivid color schemes. As a tip, to get the perfect elongated cat eye, you can use the edge of a spoon against the corner of your eye to create the first line on top and get a solid line, and then repeat the same on the bottom, and fill in the blank space that is left. It’s simple, fast, and easy – and it looks fab on any eye shape or color.

Vine Vera Helps You Triumph Over Your Winter Beauty Problems – VineVera Reviews

Young woman outdoors in the snowy winter contemplates skincareThe winter doldrums can have you down in the dumps in psychological terms, but your winter beauty problems can wreak havoc in a whole different way. Stress induced by winter beauty problems doesn’t need to have a place in your life. Vine Vera is here to the rescue with some ideas as to how you can overcome your winter beauty maladies once and for all.


Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

We can’t stress the importance of moisturizing your skin from head to toe enough. Many skin and beauty problems can be eliminated by proper moisturizing of the skin. Find a good facial and body cream and be sure to use them on a daily basis. Keep a good hand cream handy at all times to combat those bouts of dry skin throughout the day. Having a heater on in your home or office can also cause the skin to dry out, and during these cold months, that’s almost a necessity.


Drink More Water

This correlates with the moisturizing tip, but we feel it must be said. Be sure to drink enough water every day for overall health – 8-12 glasses is typically normal of what one would require to be properly hydrated. This won’t only help your skin, but it will also improve organ function, hair health, and boost your immune system by cleaning your body of toxins.


Pale Skin

When you are faced with the malady of pale winter skin, and you don’t feel as vibrant as you did in the days of summer, there are ways to combat that issue by subscribing to a tanning salon, getting a spray tan, or using a home tanning spray or lotion. You could also intensify your look and give temporary color to your skin by using a bronzing palette and dusting it on with a kabuki brush on your face, chest and neck area to give you a boost of glowing color.


Dry, Brittle Nails

Dry nails can become brittle, cracked, and ridged during the winter months. You can combat this by applying cuticle oil to the nail and cuticle every day, one to two times per day, or using olive oil as a substitute for cuticle oil. Simply rub some into the nail and nail bed. If you need to, get a buffing block and buff the ridges out of your nails gently to restore a smooth, healthy look.


Chapped Lips

Using lip balm isn’t always enough to combat dry, chapped lips. Some people get chapped lips so bad during the winter months that they crack and bleed. Other times, they get flaky and burn. Wind burn and sun burned lips are also possible, even in the winter. There are some things you can do aside from using lip balm on your lips, such as applying a natural oil such as olive oil, vitamin E oil, or cocoa butter to your lips. You could also use facial moisturizer on your lips, as long as it’s a gentle moisturizer. Another home remedy is to apply milk to the lips to offer a cooling sensation, and the proteins in the milk help to soothe the burn. As a last resort, use Vaseline on your lips to give your lips a healthy feel and promote and aid in healing.

Vine Vera on Makeup Trends for Winter – VineVera Reviews

Vine-Vera-Winter-Makeup-TipsWhat’s more fun than sipping hot chocolate by the fire, or watching Holiday movies on repeat? Winter cosmetic and makeup trends, of course!

Winter makeup trends are officially here, and with the latest trends comes some vintage inspired looks, as well as neutral color schemes and other exciting new concepts. Vine Vera has uncovered the latest trends and would like to unveil them to our readers today.

70’s Inspired Hues

The look of the 70’s is back with a vengeance – at least, it is in terms of eye shadow palettes and lip colors. Funky browns of all shades, greys, and taupe colors are making a huge comeback – and the bolder, the better with this look. Pair a neutral brown and even a metallic highlighter, such as a pearl color, together for the eyes, and accent with berry or brown lip colors. Bronzer is also a plus this winter season as it looks fabulous to give your skin the glow it’s lost due to the season change.

Bigger Brows and Lashes

Bigger eyebrows are the new thing, and longer, thicker eye lashes are also very much trending. Whether you opt for using a great mascara that enables your lashes to look more lush and plump, such as Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ Mascara, or Younique’s 3D Fiber Lashes, or even opt for a good pair of falsies – bigger is definitely better this season. To give your eyebrows a thicker appearance, in case you are one of the many women with thin brows or sparse brows, simply obtain a good eyebrow powder and gel, and if you aren’t certain of your hand being as steady as it should, there are stencils which could help you achieve the thicker brow look you are going for. Be sure to keep the eyebrow powder shade equivalent to or darker than the current color of your hair. Never go lighter, or it can make you look washed out.

Glowing, Luminous Skin

Fresh faced and luminous is the look for your overall facial skin this season. Ramp up your glowing look by using a good cleanser and moisturizer, and you might even want to opt for diamond or gold infused products to help get the luminescent glow you desire. A highlighting powder can get the job done in a pinch. Be sure to use a laminating foundation, whether it be cream based or liquid, to give your cheeks and eye area the glow they need.

Neon Eyeliner

Neon eyeliner shades or electric hues are also very much in this winter. Give your eyes a bright pop of color and draw the attention to your eye area by using a daring color such as neon blue, neon pink, purples, and even neon greens. The brighter, the better. You can pair neon colors with vibrantly contrasting eye shadow colors and a bright lip color that is in season to give yourself a truly trendy look.

Don’t be afraid to try something new and daring, and experiment with new looks and colors. Have fun while doing it – after all, application is half the fun!

Vine Vera on British Beauty Tips – Vine Vera Reviews

British Beauty posing

The Brits seem to have it all figured out when it comes to beauty. With many top beauty lines launched within the lovely country of England, one must wonder where they get their secrets and know how. Many British women of all different nationalities and descents seem to have one thing in common: beautiful skin. The women from Britain also seem to pride themselves on their pale, beautiful skin and revere it as a secret untold. Vine Vera Word Press is proud to offer all of our readers a glimpse into the world of British Beauty with some tips derived from some of the top beauty sources in England. Vine Vera scoured the internet in hopes of finding some of the best, yet not well known, tips imaginable so that you too can have beautiful skin like the women of Britain.

Tip #1: Put Cucumber Slices on Eyes to Refresh and Rejuvenate

British women swear by this trick, and that’s why it’s the number one tip on this list. They believe this will refresh the eye skin area, give it a moisturized glow, and relieve tiredness and dullness in the eye area due to the moisturizing properties within the food.

Tip #2: Drink More Water

Everyone knows that drinking water every day is essential to human life. Some women like it, others need to force it. British women believe you should drink almost 9 glasses of water per day to keep your skin and body well hydrated for health and beauty.

Tip #3: Put Talc Powder in Hair and Brush Through to Freshen

Much like a dry shampoo method, British women believe using talcum powder throughout the hair and brushing through will freshen your style and give you a volumized boost. Try baby powder if you have it on hand, which works just as well.

Tip #4: Rinse Your Hair in Vinegar

After shampooing your hair with a good quality shampoo designed for your hair type, and applying a good moisturizing conditioner, rinse the conditioner from your hair and apply a hair rinse made of vinegar. By rinsing the vinegar through your hair, you are combating itch, shampoo residue, and adding shine and luster to your locks without causing damage.

Tip #4: Use Lipstick for Blusher

In the event that you run out of your favorite blusher, don’t fret – the Brits believe in using a lipstick color in place of your favorite blush product, which works just as well as any blusher. Be sure to use a pink, coral, bronze or light pink color to stay in tune to a normal blusher color.

Tip #5: Spray Perfume on your Brush

British women believe in spraying their hairbrushes with perfume to scent the hair with your favorite smell, giving it a fresh scent to last the whole day through. Try to use perfume instead of body spray, as perfume tends to last much longer and hold its smell.

Tip #6: Use Hair Conditioner as a Shaving Lotion

Using a conditioning product on your legs rather than shave gel or cream is one of the ways British women have such fabulous looking legs and skin. This method tends to give you well moisturized legs that will nick less while under a razor, and also provide you with a smoother, closer shave.

Tip #7: Use Sugar in Shower to Exfoliate Skin

Simply taking about a teaspoon of sugar – white or brown – in the shower, and applying it with your favorite soap or body wash can do wonders for your skin. Work in circles to reveal refreshed, new skin after your shower. You will be amazed at how soft your skin feels!

These are just a few of the many fabulous beauty tips British women could offer in terms of beauty secrets. These are also some of the most well known in Britain. Be sure to check back soon for more posts on British beauty and tips you can use in your everyday life.

Vine Vera on Over 40 Dating – VineVera Reviews

Over 40 mature couple on a date

Finding the perfect mate can be tough. Some women need to go many, many failed date attempts with the wrong guys to find someone who is right for them. Some women also set their bars high, while others set their bars low. Depending on what it is you want from a mate, it can be difficult to find ‘the one’ if you don’t really know what to look for, or what you want. Are you just bored? Do you simply want a companion, like a friend? Or are you in the market for something more? These are questions in which you need to ask yourself before beginning the dating endeavor.

Vine Vera understands the frustration within trying to make it to the finish line with your prize and trophy – a guy you can love and adore, and one who thinks the world of you. For those of you who are exasperated and losing hope – don’t! As the saying goes, in this big wide world, there is someone out there for everyone. It takes a bit of looking and work, but all of that effort eventually pays off when you find him. True love happens once in a lifetime, as the saying goes. If you find the one, hang onto him for dear life – and don’t let go.

Here are some effective dating tips for women over 40 who are searching for Mr. Right. He’s out there, ladies. Somewhere…

Tip # 1: Don’t Settle – But Always Get What You Give
No matter what, never settle for less than what you believe you are worth. If you think you deserve a guy who will give you the world on a silver platter – so be it! If that’s what you want, that’s what you should get, plain and simple. However; this part is important, so pay attention ladies – always be willing to dish out the same treatment for him. Always be sure to keep him happy, and give back as much as you give. Those who take, take, take never end up truly happy in the end. Love is about giving and making sacrifices. Be sure to be ready and willing to be that person before you begin dating.

Tip #2: Don’t Appear Desperate
This is a really big one, ladies. Never appear desperate while on a date. It is during these times some men have the keen ability to sense your vulnerability, play on your emotions, and get what it is they want – and this is especially true for those who are only seeking one thing. Don’t lead anyone on, and don’t tell someone you need them if you just met them – for one thing, you will sound crazy, and second, you will be taken advantage of. When that happens you will be left picking up the pieces of your heart as Prince Charming moves on to the next one. Be smart, and choose your words carefully. Don’t appear desperate, whatever you do. Even if you really like him, and even if he’s really handsome. We women have feelings that get easily hurt, so keep that in mind.

Tip #3: Shop Around
Be sure of what you want before you go for it, so you know the kind of guy you need to seek out. Dating sites are gaining in popularity for women over 40, and many websites offer true matchmaking capabilities that ensure you can find someone compatible with you and your needs, and so there will be no ugly surprises. Be sure to choose someone who has the same likes and interests as you. It’s always wise to choose someone within the same age range, so you will have things in common. Always be sure you are compatible early on, and if you aren’t – on to the next one. The quicker you end things, the easier it will be.

Tip 4: Don’t Sleep With Him on the First Date
This kind of goes without saying, and somewhat plays into Tip # 2 with the vulnerability aspect. No matter how handsome, charming, cute, gorgeous, financially stable, or adorable he seems to be – do not make the mistake of sleeping with him on the first date! If you value yourself, your dignity, your self-respect and want to maintain them, show the ability to withstand from participating in this act until you are certain he is the one, or at least plan on being with him for a very long time. Make smart decisions, or wind up getting hurt. It’s ultimately your decision – but it’s a great piece of advice.

Dating over 40 doesn’t have to be boring, either. Be sure to choose fun, upbeat locations to hang out, get to know each other, and to fall in love. Always be honest, and never use words you wouldn’t want used with you. Love will find you in its own time, but if you’re pursing it, we wish you the best of luck as you ring in the New Year!

Vine Vera Looks at the Best Over 40 Hair Styles – VineVera Reviews

Women in their 40’s are more in style than ever before. With that being said, it’s no wonder women in their 40’s have some of the best hairstyles out there. People look to celebrity women for inspiration, and feed off of their style to develop a style all their own. If you want to learn about some of the hottest styles for women in their 40’s, read on to get a few ideas Vine Vera sourced from the internet. Maybe you can use one of these for your next haircut!

Short shaggy hairstyle

Short Shag Cut

Short shags offer sex appeal and a sporty edge, which make it great for any occasion. It goes with any outfit, and can be styled differently on a day to day basis. Use products like styling creams as opposed to gels or mousses to give it a softer, more touchable feel and look. This style can accent higher cheekbones, and provide something simple to style every day. This look may not work well for those with curly or coarse hair, however, so this cut should be done with caution.

Layered bob hairstyle for over 40 woman

Layered Bob

Layered bobs are nice because they offer something different in terms of a typical bland bob style. They give you more style to work with, and it gives dimension that just can’t be found in a regular bob. With or without bangs, this is a great and much loved go-to style for those who want something simple and easy to maintain that also provides plenty of style.

Beautiful mature woman

Shoulder Length

Shoulder length hair is always a classic and will never go out of style. This is a fabulous look for a woman in her forties, as it adds an air of youth and playfulness. You can wear it straightened, part it to the side or down the middle, or scrunch it for a different look. It can still be worn in a ponytail, so if you aren’t ready to go too short this might be the best choice for you.

Mature woman with long hair

Long and Straight

A long, straight style is always in – and if you aren’t ready to commit to shorter hair, we get it! This style works. As you age, though, the needs of your hair change. Be sure to use anti-frizz products to keep your mane tame, and a good shampoo and conditioner to keep it sleek and smooth. This style goes with anything we could want to wear and works for any occasion.


Your 40’s are said to be some of the best years of your life. Why not have the best hairstyle for you, and do what you love? Wear your hair the way you love it, and do what makes you happy. Turning 40 doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your hair. You can wear any style you like – with a few age appropriate modifications, you can still look youthful and vibrant no matter what. When in doubt, seek a professional stylist’s opinion and you will be well on your way to fabulous hair in your forties.

He was one of the pioneers in the fashion industry, and enjoyed every aspect of his job, which was creating a new style for women to wear after the Second World War. He wanted to offer something more than the drab, daily housewife clothing and offer an air of elegance. He succeeded, and till this date his brand remains strong.

He brings an air of casual coolness to his brand, as well as the others he has anything to do with, and introduces the trendiest, most flavorful collections the fashion world has seen to date.

He was and still is one of the wealthiest fashion designers to ever grace the fashion world.
