“Not So Fast!”

We all have those blah days where we don’t want to wear any makeup, don’t want to pretty up our hair and just want to walk out that door as is. Personally, I wouldn’t be caught dead without my eyebrows and some lipstick…that’s just the way this little mama rolls. No eyebrows, no dice! (Please know that I do have eyebrows and not some weird bald section over my lids due to tweezing malfunctions. I just prefer to make them a little more fabulous than what’s already there.)

Here are some Oak Tree Vintage favorites for looking chic on those lazy or on the rush day’s.

“Hair”

Did you just wake up but look like you took your finger out of a wall socket? Well here’s an easy quick fix that will help you bluff a bad do!

Nothing says “Sexy Messy” like a great head scarf like those from Pinup Girl Clothing!

This is one accessory that will take you from a.m to p.m. in one easy step. Scarf’s don’t take up much room, so keep a black one in your purse or glove compartment for a hair saving pick-me -up!

These little pretties run $23 at Pinup Girl Clothing, not to bad for a time saving quick fix. Low on the dollar? No worries. There are always great finds at your local thrift store! While everyone else

is passing up the very understated scarf section, you’ll be there  picking up the creme of the crop in low key elegance.

“LipStick”

The power of color compels you… to please please please not go out looking like a muted monotone manikin! You don’t have to clown up your pretty little pout, but please add some color to your on the run look. Let’s face it. Lipstick was invented for a reason. Someone, somewhere said, OMG! These chicks look like HELL-P! Not really. Lipstick actually dates back to Ancient Mesopotamia. Even then, humans had the need to distinguish themselves among others. Lipstick, on a bad face day, can help distinguish whether or not you took the time to invest some love to your look.

Oak Tree Vintage recommends …

Neautrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20. It comes in 6 subtle shades that give your lips just enough color to kill the monotony of a flesh toned lip, but also protects them from the sun while adding a nice sheer gloss. $8.99 http://www.neutrogena.com

Bésame Cosmetics Crimson Cream Rouge. This is truly a magnificent product. Keeping this in your purse will ensure light color for your lips when applied lightly, deeper color when layered on and rosey cheeks for that  express p.m. look! $22.00 http://www.besamecosmetics.com

Bottom line my darlings, don’t neglect to spruce up your on the go routine and always carry some quick fixer-upper’s in your purse and in your car. A little something goes a long way. You never know who you’ll run into and you certainly don’t want to be the topic of the day at the salon!
