Thankfully, Ilana Stern, Founder and CEO of Weddington Way, an online boutique filled with gorgeous wedding party style picks, is sharing her wisdom with us all week long.

Many of you probably know that mint was the color last season (mint skinny jeans, anyone?), but this spring designers are going a little less green and opting for seafoam tones instead. We couldn’t resist the urge to take the theme a bit literally, and opted for ocean-inspired touches to go with this gorgeous seafoam bridesmaid gown by After Six: a pearl encrusted bracelet by Dessy, and freshwater pearl earrings by Dogeared.

Courtne Smith, a.k.a Queen Shmink, is a world traveler with extraordinary fashion and beauty sense. The Toronto-based blogger is one of our favorite ladies to follow on the Interwebz because she makes her impeccable style (fancy fur is her specialty) feel so accessible and easy to recreate. Plus, she always has a killer manicure. This week, she teaches us her secrets that keep her perfectly primped when she’s both at home or on the road with her bff, Drake.
When it comes to my everyday makeup, I tend to keep things pretty simple. If my skin isn’t having ‘a moment,’ I can skip foundation and get away with just dabbing on some concealer and bronzer. But I always make sure to fill my brows and apply a coat of mascara—I definitely feel naked without those. These are the products I use on a daily basis:
Emma Roberts; ybf Eyebrow Pencil; Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara; Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner; RMS Beauty Living Luminizer; Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm
I was a bit too busy doing other glamorous things on Tuesday night (like watching Sex and the City reruns and eating pita chips) to make an appearance at Salvatore Ferragamo’s Women’s Resort 2012 Collection preview, but Emma Roberts looked stunning enough for the both of us. Roberts wore a deep purple frock, but it was her dark eye and punchy lip that drew the attention away from Minka Kelly, Eva Mendes, and the other lovely ladies she was hanging with. Here’s how to get Emma’s look:
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner: For a dark black-lined lid, apply a thick coat of this liner and pair it with Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara for extra large lashes.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in Succulent Pomegranate: The red undertones in this sheer bright pink make for a sophisticated but still fun lip.
ybf Eyebrow Pencil in Universal Taupe: Number one in the world, this eyebrow pencil is sure to help you achieve lush, well-groomed brows like Roberts.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer: Highlight your face’s best features and get a glowing look like Roberts thanks to the light-reflecting pigments in this illuminating godsend.
