Beaute’ J’adore is a one stop blog for a beautiful outlook on food, fashion, beauty and home decor. After each visit I often wonder if there isn’t anything that the blogs creator Nikki can’t do! I chatted it up with today’s muse about everything from her beauty routine to her fab closet space.
How would you describe your personal style? Do you have a signature look?
I would describe my style as sophisticated chic, I love classic staples with modern infused. I am a huge lover of tunics and cropped jackets, there is so much versatility with both.
Since you’re a self proclaimed beauty junkie I have to ask, what’s your go-to makeup routine?
I have to admit although I own tons of makeup, I am more of a skincare junkie. My normal makeup routine is foundation which I mix Stila and Makeup Forever, Tarte concealer, Makeup Forever HD powder, Benefit loose powder more so like a bronzer, Sephora liquid liner, Lancome definicils mascara, Laura Mercier lip glace, & Mac lip liner. I swear this process only take about 15 minute
What style elements, looks or trends are you into right now?
I don’t tend to go all out when it comes to trends, simply because it’s easy to go broke doing that. I have key pieces that can be worn well after the trend has long gone. Ie: peplum tops especially, I know they are all the trend now, but I have peplum tops I have had for years. That’s definitely a now trend that can withstand time. I have also incorporate a few pastel color pieces but again I look at pieces that have the potential for longevity. I don’t want to have a closet filled with trends from many season past.
It would have to be the Christian Louboutin Altipump Spike Cork Pump, I have been eyeing them since they were unveiled and they are AMAZING!
In addition to putting dresses with dresses, skirts with skirts etc, I would recommend going through your closet at least once a month familiarizing yourself with what’s in it. Most people tend to forget how incredible there wardrobe is, so when doing this you tend to 1 keep it neat and organized and 2 get a renewed excitement for what you forgot you had.
Do you have any style icons or fashion heroes that you look to for inspiration?
I love the style of Rachel Roy, Giovanna Battaglia, and Elisa Nalin they are all sophisticated, chic and fashion forward. I can style stalk them all day.
