Find Out Which Colors Flatter You Most with LFB Color #1

You all know that I love colors, especially bold colors. That is why my blog is called Color and Grace. 😉 I was told that back in the 50s and 60s every woman had to learn a little about colors in order to pick the most flattering ones for their wardrobe and makeup. I guess that is why that time period had so many fashion icons and classic styles. Those women really knew themselves and were good at picking out the best color to allow them to reach their full beauty potential.

Nowadays, it seems like we have forgotten the science of color. Most women just stick with natural colors because they don’t really know what their best colors and worst colors are. Most people have a favorite color, but your favorite may not be the best one for your wardrobe. Everyone has a unique group of colors that makes them look their best and another that makes them look their worst. Coordinating the right colors together can make the difference between a stunning outfit and an ugly one. I think you got my point; other than style and fit, I really pay attention to colors when it comes to shopping. In fact, there are a lot of times I start with a color, and then the style, then the fit.

I was not born with a good eye for colors. I have learned from a few people in the past. Recently, I went to Houston to refresh my color knowledge with Lauren from LFB Color.

She also hosts style + color events for small groups + corporate clients, partners with large retailers + cosmetic brands, and appeared as a color + style expert for local + nationally syndicated television.

I have been super busy lately getting ready for my Europe trip from 3/19 to 3/31, so I haven’t had any chance go shopping. I will show you later how those babies help me in picking out the best colors, so you need to come back to read the second post. 😉 Anyway, I did play with the cards with my existing wardrobe to help me decide what I should keep, and what I should donate. 😉

What Tools And Apps I Use To Take and Edit Photos

My late husband was my photographer. He was always with me and took millions photos that I could pick from. But now it is just me and I have traveled even more for my blogging business or vacation this year. I need many photos to post, so I have to find a way to do the trick. Below are a few simple tools or App that have helped me keep producing high quality photos by myself.

What Tools And Apps I Use To Take and Edit Photos

1. Light-Up Phone Case For Selfie or Instagram Story

I noticed that I have taken more and more selfies and Instagram stories when I am traveling. Most of them are pretty bad quality due to the terrible lighting. Then just recently I discovered this cool Light-Up Phone Case.

2. The old Fashion Tripod for Self Portraits

My late husband bought this AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod two years ago for our TV segment filming. I never thought about that I would take this tripod everywhere I traveled. I know, some of my blogger friend couldn’t believe when she saw it in my hotel room. Lol. It is very light weight and so easy to use.

Self portraits are tough for a number of reasons; you can’t see yourself to know how you look until after the fact. Setup can be more time consuming due to the running back and forth setting timers. Focus is difficult because again you can’t see where that focus point is resting and if you are using a timer mode there is a chance you weren’t in the frame when the camera found something to focus on. Lol. It takes time and patience but it can be done. You can see the photos below for some good ones that I got from hundreds not so great ones.

3. Meitu Photo Editing App

When I was in China for my month long vacation, all my friends were using this Meitu App. They were so surprised that I never used any App like this to edit my photos. They said I am not quilted to be a blogger since I didn’t even know it. Lol! Anyway, this is a super powerful App that literally can make everyone looks perfect. I always dislike heavy touching up with my photos. The only thing I do is to lighten up the image if it is too dark. You can explore more to see the magic results. Anyway, I just wanted to show you one function that I really like, the Eraser. This can help you erase all the people or things that you don’t want in your photos. See examples below.
