8 Style Rules

Kate-Moss-550447

Kate Moss has revealed her eight style rules

She barely gives interviews and has shunned social media but as she prepares to celebrate her 41st birthday on January 16th, Kate Moss has decided to divulge her wardrobe secrets.

The blonde-haired supermodel spoke to Look magazine about her top eight style rules.

1. Vamp up your look with lipstick

Kate wears a natural beige lip colour day-to-day but for a more dramatic evening look opts for a pillar box red.

“I just slick it on, I don’t bother with lipliner,” she says.

2. Don’t be afraid of high heels

Even when she’s papped popping to Tesco for a pint of milk, Kate is hardly out of her trusty sky-high boots.

She tells the magazine that “great shoes” can transform a look: “They will make an outfit feel polished, cool and put together.”

3. Sort out your clobber

Kate has not one, not two but THREE wardrobes – “one big one and two everyday ones”.

In order to keep your clothes in check she recommends organising things into boxes and labelling them with Polaroids.

“I organise my denim, leather and dresses by colour, although my jeans are usually black and grey,” she adds.

4. Summer style should be effortless

Make sure your beach bag is full of “floaty chiffons and soft suede”, says Kate.

The supermodel is a fan of maxi dresses but leaves her heels at home because “wearing them on a beach is ridiculous”. Agreed.

5. Shop vintage 

Don’t be afraid to rifle through charity shops and flea markets to find hidden gems.

“Look for quality pieces that can be repaired if needed,” says Kate.

6. Pick a capsule wardrobe 

Kate says her staple items are “jeans, a tank top, a jacket and boots”.

She thinks every woman should find key pieces that work for her, including a must-have “little black dress”.

7. Ward off the paps

Kate tries to keep the cameras off her by wearing similar things every day.

She says, “If you wear the same thing, they get bored and leave you alone.”

8. Find a beauty regime – and stick to it  

Mossy swears by Creme de la Mer to keep her skin moisturised and Lucas Papaw balm for chap-free lips.

She also treats herself to Nichola Joss facials when she’s looking for a pick-me-up.

Lipstick Is Healthy

Lipstick

1968 lipstick colors sure do look very similar to what you would find at Sephora today – especially that hue of purple in the middle along with the coral to the side.  Even though lipstick, on the surface, appears only as a colorful tool to look your best, but underneath, lipstick is an important tool that can help you from inside out.  Here are some of the most important benefits of lipstick:

Beauty – No matter what style of lip color you prefer (sharp, bold and dramatic colors, or more natural and subdued shades that can be translucent), you will instantly feel more beautiful. If your goal is to stand out in the crowd, be more beautiful, or you simply need a boost in your confidence, lipstick is a perfect fashion tool for you.

Hydration – Even though some older brands of lipsticks use ingredients that can suck moisture from you lips, most of them are very conscientious about hydration and are made to preserve the natural state of your lips. New brands of lipstick can often contain some form of moisturizing additive, such as vitamin E or aloe vera.

Sunscreen – Even in early 20th century, chemist and fashion designers came to conclusion that sunscreen protection is important and that most people leave their sensitive lips up to the mercy of the sun even if they are conscious about protecting the rest of the face. Lipstick manufacturers then added sun protection ingredients to their products, enabling you to protect your lips from sun, drying, wind, and other harmful and aging effects.

Posture – Several studies have shown that women who regularly use lipstick have a better posture in the later years of their life. With long and steady tradition of standing in front of the mirror and keeping your posture and body shape in healthy conditions, women in the ages of 65 to 85 have significantly less problems with their posture and balance.

Other health issues – Lips have very different composition then the rest of our skin. It lacks melanin, substance that protects us from the harmful UV rays, and because of that wearing sun protecting lipstick can greatly reduce the chance of skin cancer. However, only matte and opaque lipsticks with SPF of 15 higher can be effective in this, but glossy and shimmery lipsticks works in totally different way, actually attracting harmful radiation and intensifying the irradiation of the lips.
