Stuck for a gift idea for the oh-so-stylish fashionista in your life?
How about a pair of walk-in-the-room-and-grab-everyone’s-attention sunglasses from Anna-Karin Karlsson eyewear.
Available in Mexico exclusively at Palacio de Hierro, these over-sized, statement-making prescription lenses and sunglasses are farfetched and eclectically aesthetic to create a perfect blend of sophistication and quirkiness.
The limited edition glasses (Anna-Karin Karlsson usually only makes a maximum of 200 pairs of any style) feature unusual shapes, vibrant prints and in-your-face embellishments with flamboyant, saturated hues and muted monochrome tones.
And if you are not in the market to fork over 9,000 pesos or more for a pair of sunglasses, the new MustHave Casual line of eyewear at Liverpool is both trendy and affordable (we are talking in the 1,000-peso a pair range).
The Spanish brand’s latest collection is inspired by the “success generation,” the movers and shakers of the world who base their achievements on talent.
MustHave glasses offer a mix of high quality and low prices that make it easy to create an entire wardrobe of eyewear.
The interchangeable, mix-and-match frames and lenses allow for personalized style with a selection of 200 combinations.
The MustHave eyewear line at Liverpool is being fronted by Mexican sports commentator Inés Sainz and is a favorite among influencers and blogs.
Nothing makes foundation makeup look better or stay on longer quite so effectively as a primer.
Whether you wear a full face of makeup everyday or prefer to keep it simple with BB cream and tinted lip balm, a makeup primer can not only create a smooth base for foundation, but help to combat shine and cover up tiny lines.
Now, the Oakland, California-based E. L.F. Cosmetics brand has introduced a collecton of new face primers to keep you (and your makeup) looking fresh and radiant all day long.
The first is a mineral-based Tone Adjusrtng Face Primer in a neutral green shade that combats redness and evens out skin tones while correcting blotchy complexions.
There is also an E.L.F. Blemish Control Face Primer to help combat acne breakouts and blackheads, an E.L.F. Radiant Glow Face Prmer with shimmer to create a luminizing effect on dark spots and uneven skin tones, and an E.L.F. Brightening Lavendar Face Primer to give a warm glow to dull or yellow skin tones.
The Mexican handbag brand Corazón de Melon last week offered the media a sneak preview of its new collection, due out in early 2018.
Designed and produced 100 percent in Mexico, using no animal-based parts, these multi-colored, multi-textured, statement-making purses are inspired in the ethnic and cultural heritage of global trends.
The new collection is divided into four subgroups, Indigo Denim, which mixes dark blue denim with bright, satiny, batik-like patterns; Fábula Tropical, which draws on the colorful beauty of nature and is adorned with images of birds and flowers; Kimono Mix, which contrasts the deep-hued patterns of Japanese kimonos with elegant coral shades; and a sedate, monotone group in elegant coral red and rich indigo blue with subtle inlaid patterns for a more conservative look.
The Corazón de Melon brand is available exclusively in Liverpool, Sanborns, Sears and Amazon.
