With summer nearing its end, students soon will return to school routines, making it all the more important for them to adopt a quick, easy makeup routine \u2013 say, one that takes less than 10 minutes, to allow hitting the snooze button a time or two in the morning.

As a result, ladies, when you burn the midnight oil to write papers and finish other projects, follow these seven steps to at least appear to have logged more precious pillow time:

Step 1: Once you\u2019ve washed and moisturized your face, make your skin look healthy and evenly covered by using a BB (blemish balm) cream, a much lighter touch than a foundation that you can easily apply with your fingers.

Step 2: After applying the BB cream, add concealer under your eyes and to any imperfections you want covered. Concealer\u2019s just the thing for looking wide awake even if you actually enjoyed way too little sleep.

Step 3: Powder your face \u2013 those telltale under-eye areas in specific and everything else in general \u2013 to set your makeup. Doing this in the morning should help you avoid needing makeup touch-ups later. (This step, by the way, really benefits oily skin.)

Step 4: Add color and life to your face by dusting bronzer on your cheekbones, and apply blush to the apples of your cheeks.

Step 5: With your ring finger, apply a light-colored shimmery eye shadow to your lids. Doing so will make your eyes look larger \u2013 and help you look more awake than you really may be.

Step 6: Skip eyeliner and just apply a coat or two of mascara to your lashes.

Step 7: Complete the look by adding ChapStick or a tinted lip balm.

This supersimple everyday routine \u2013 again, less than a 10-minute procedure \u2013 should benefit even those who dislike wearing makeup, while those who normally don\u2019t wear makeup at all may want to experiment with it not only for scholastic purposes but also for presentations, interviews, or professional meetings or activities.

And despite the playful value of experimenting with makeup, ladies, always remember that true beauty comes from within!

KFerrara 12 PC EVERYTHING Gift Set.jpg

If you\u2019ve had a manicure or pedicure, you know the feeling \u2013 the nail technician tells you to select a color, and you find yourself staring at an overwhelmingly large wall of polishes. Which hue do you choose?

Kathy Ferrara of Frontenac has narrowed your selection to 12.

Ferrara is the founder of K. Ferrara Color, a local nail polish line focused on fashion and health. K. Ferrara Color features a \u201cfive-free formula,\u201d which was reported by the beauty experts at Allure as meaning it is free of five known carcinogens sometimes found in polish: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, toluene and dibutyl palate. Additionally, the line is cruelty-free, vegan and nontoxic. \u201cIt is a really healthy, good choice for women without sacrificing the quality,\u201d Ferrara says.

K. Ferrara Color offers two six-color collections: Impeccable Nudes and Sophisticated Colors, all of which pair nicely for mani-pedi duos, as well as the full collection of 12 or single bottles. Ferrara explains she has worked in the fashion industry as a stylist for more than 25 years, which means color has been a huge part of her life.

\u201cMy particular business has also been about 50 percent corporate focused, so I work a lot with professional women,\u201d Ferrara says, explaining that often her clients don\u2019t know or have the time to figure out what colors are best for things like clothing and polish. Much like Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his iconic gray T-shirt, she says these women simply have bigger things to think about \u2013 and so she\u2019s here to help make life easier with a collection of foolproof polishes. \u201cThis is just a small step for me to try to streamline that process,\u201d says Ferrara.

Outside of the clients\u2019 need for color, Ferrara\u2019s reason for diving into the polish business was health related. She is a colon cancer survivor, and after her diagnosis 10 years ago, she found herself looking more closely at what she put into \u2013 and onto \u2013 her body. She was introduced to the five-free idea while visiting her daughter in New York City.

Ferrara says she began work on her collection about a year ago, noting much of the time was spent perfecting the colors. \u201cMy manufacturer is in California, and they are wonderful,\u201d she says, noting there was ample back-and-forth while swatches were finalized. Then came the photography and design phase before the collection launched in June of this year. \u201cIt has all been such a fun adventure,\u201d Ferrara says.

Shades in the K. Ferrara Color collection all feature women\u2019s names, some of which come from real-life women Ferrara knows or admires. \u201cI love that about my line \u2013 there\u2019s a little bit of personality to each one of them,\u201d she says. \u201cIt\u2019s a very pro-woman [line]. The base of this truly was to support women and make something a little bit simpler for them.\u201d

Although Ferrara loves all her colors, she notes the Alexandra, a deep plum, for pedicures and the creamy pale pink-beige Evelyn for manicures are her summer staples. The Impeccable Nudes collection ranges in shade from a warm cream to a cool taupe, while the Sophisticated Colors collection includes purples, reds, a smoky gray and a bold blue. Individual colors sell for $22 per bottle, with six- and 12-bottle collections available for $120 and $240. Products are currently available exclusively on the K. Ferrara Color website.

The newest additions to the collection sandwich the colors currently available. A gel-like base coat and quick-drying glossy top coat launched at the beginning of August, Ferrara explains. After that, she notes a potential nail supplement as an idea for a future addition, as well as more hues. \u201cI have some other colors whirling in my head that I would love to add,\u201d Ferrara says.

Until then, the 12 available hues work for people looking for classic and demure or bold and bright \u2013 and those who like both, Ferrara explains, noting the common occurrence of a barely there shade on top and a bolder color on the toes.

She recommends bringing the polish to salons instead of using the ones available there, explaining the ease of fixing chips when you own the polish color. Plus, doing so removes the dreaded decision moment as the technician waits for you to choose from an endless wall of lacquers and helps you create a \u201csignature color.\u201d

\"reigning
reigning men 080417

An exhibition focused on male apparel now at the Saint Louis Art Museum ranks as (pardon the pun) a real dandy.

\u201cReigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715-2015,\u201d which opened June 25, runs through Sept. 17 and comes primarily from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

The title of the exhibition, curated by the local institution\u2019s Genevieve Cortinovis and Zoe A. Perkins, puns on \u201cIt\u2019s Raining Men,\u201d the 1982 pop single from The Weather Girls that sold 6 million copies globally. \u201cReigning Men\u201d shares that ditty\u2019s sheer exuberance.

\u201cThe looks for the \u2018Reigning Men\u2019 exhibition were selected based on five themes that could be well represented based on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art collection and focused on high fashion,\u201d Perkins says. \u201cIt\u2019s not a complete survey of men\u2019s fashions.\u201d

Still, a stroll through the exhibition\u2019s rooms feels, if not absolute, then certainly astounding. Although it includes nothing quite as fashion-forward as the Elizabethan codpiece, \u201cReigning Men\u201d should put to shame the average American male\u2019s neotenic day-to-day costume of a back-billed ball cap, a T-shirt and a pair of short pants.

The exhibition\u2019s rooms map to the thematic quintet mentioned by Perkins \u2013 \u201cRevolution/Evolution,\u201d \u201cEast/West,\u201d \u201cUniformity,\u201d \u201cBody Consciousness\u201d and \u201cThe Splendid Man\u201d \u2013 but attendees likely will focus less on its specs than its spectacles, among them:

\u2022\u2002An Italian ensemble from the 1770s \u2013 adorning the exhibition\u2019s first of 90-plus mannequins \u2013 accompanied (of course!) by an \u00e9p\u00e9e.

\u2022\u2002A 1970 caftan, also Italian, so gonzo it makes the customary garb of underground cartoonist Bill Griffith\u2019s Zippy the Pinhead look like Wall Street probity.

\u2022\u2002A 1979 Ralph Lauren Urban Cowboyish rig including pointy-toed boots (worn outside \u201cpre-weathered\u201d jeans, naturally) and a triple-fringed brown suede jacket.

\u2022\u2002Seven examples of swimwear ranging from a prim early-1900s brace of two-pieces (one U.S., the other French) to a contemporary exercise in oh-my-goodness minimalism so outlandish the mannequin sporting it faces the wall.

\u2022\u2002A blissfully deranged 1957 Belgian two-piece suit in mustard and lilac, accessorized with shoes in the latter hue and a chapeau in the former.

The exhibition also has included or will include ancillary attractions like lectures, gallery talks and family programs \u2013 among them a June 24 dialogue with Andr\u00e9 Leon Talley, former editor-at-large at Vogue, (see sidebar) and a Sept. 1 panel discussion entitled \u201cHip Hop and Fashion: From the Streets to the Runway.\u201d

Following the museum\u2019s recent \u201cDegas, Impressionism & the Paris Millinery Trade\u201d exhibition, \u201cReigning Men\u201d suggests an informal sartorial trend there, accentuating the ties between fashion and fine art. That trend extends even to this evening\u2019s Art Hill Film Series selection, screening at 9 p.m.: The Devil Wears Prada, the 2006 satire starring Meryl Streep.

\u201cDon\u2019t forget the Stephen Jones hats!\u201d interjects Perkins, referring to a smaller, headwear-centered exhibition running at the museum until Sept. 4.

Her co-curator agrees to a tendency if not an out-and-out trend.

\u201cIn my view, fashion has always fit comfortably in Decorative Arts and Design,\u201d says Cortinovis, referring to her department at the museum, before continuing with a reference to another offering on display there until Nov. 26. \u201cA smaller exhibition now on view \u2013 \u2018Cross-Pollination\u2019 \u2013 speaks to that.\u201d

From curating \u201cReigning Men,\u201d the two also reflect on menswear trends of the past three centuries that they remain thankful haven\u2019t extended to womenswear.

\u201cI can\u2019t think of a particular trend,\u201d Perkins says. \u201cBoth men\u2019s and women\u2019s fashions have been influenced by the same factors, such as technology, international trade, revolutionary causes, anti-establishment sentiments and so forth. However, men\u2019s fashions tend to change more slowly.\u201d

Cortinovis takes a somewhat countervailing view. \u201cI can think of a number of womenswear trends that I\u2019m thankful didn\u2019t bleed into menswear,\u201d she says, \u201cbut none the other way around. Indeed, so many staples of my wardrobe \u2013 button-down blouses, tailored jackets and pants \u2013 have their roots in men\u2019s fashion.\u201d

Finally, as individuals likely far more \u201cinvested\u201d in womenswear, the co-curators of the exhibition briefly dwell on the most intriguing insights they themselves gleaned from it about menswear.

\u201cI\u2019m intrigued by the ways that, over the centuries, men, just like women, have used fashion to alter or \u2018improve\u2019 their bodies,\u201d Cortinovis says. \u201cA well-cut and tailored suit really can be transformative.\u201d

Perkins, for her part, notes \u201cthat men, just as women, have always used clothing to express their status, political views, worldliness and self-esteem. And there have always been men who have pushed the envelope to keep fashion relevant.\u201d

Andr\u00e9 Leon Talley Talks \u201cReigning Men\u201d

By Amanda Dahl

Ushering in the arrival of the highly anticipated \u201cReigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715-2015\u201d exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum, fashion mogul Andr\u00e9 Leon Talley sat down with an audience in St. Louis to discuss all things fashionable. Talley first got his big break in the fashion world through volunteering at an exhibition curated by Diana Vreeland at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. He has gone on to work with designer giants, including Karl Lagerfeld, Manolo Blahnik and Versace. LN gives you an insider\u2019s guide to the conversation with the former editor-at-large for Vogue magazine.

On modern muses:

\u201cThe iconic men, the disruptors who are influencing fashion today, are musicians and rappers: Drake, Jay Z, Kanye West, P. Diddy.\u201d

\u201cKanye West is extraordinary. He is a talented artist who takes himself very seriously. Sometimes you like him; sometimes you hate him. But he remains influential.\u201d

\u201cJaden Smith has fluidity. He wore an albino bat costume to Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye\u2019s wedding. He is on his own trajectory to becoming a big influencer.\u201d

On personal style:

\u201cTake pride in what you have. You [might only] have one pair of shoes, but you can keep them immaculately polished.\u201d

\u201cYour clothes must transport you \u2026 make you feel like you are absolutely the most fabulous thing walking down the street.\u201d

On his favorite menswear item:

\u201c[Don\u2019t underestimate] the importance of a beautifully ironed shirt.\u201d

Beauty essentials should accompany today\u2019s busy women at all times for obvious reasons.

Whether you\u2019re running late for an \u00fcber-important confab or just meeting your peeps after work, ladies, keeping things on hand lets you freshen up whenever and wherever necessary. In that light, consider these seven must-haves for your purse, tote or briefcase:

Lipstick/Lip Liner.\u2002Many women lose their lipstick luster even before they enter the workplace each day \u2013 thank you, morning joe! As a result, keep your favorite lip liner/lipstick combo with you for reapplication throughout the day.

Hairbrush.\u2002Because you never know what Mother Nature has planned, like one of the metro area\u2019s regular monsoons, a hairbrush remains key to keeping your tresses silky and smooth all day long.

Roll-On Perfume.\u2002The a.m. rush makes it easy to forget to apply a spritz of your signature scent. So buy a rollerball of that scent, applying on frenzied and forgetful mornings or simply when you feel the need for freshening.

Cotton Swabs.\u2002The multiple uses of cotton swabs make them lifesavers. If your eye makeup needs a touch-up or your lip liner looks a bit uneven, ladies, neaten things with a Q-tip from Unilever or similar product.

Blotting Sheets.\u2002For facial oil accumulated throughout the day, a blotting sheet becomes your best friend to control pesky shiny areas. After blotting away the shine, in fact, your makeup should look as if you just applied it.

Concealer.\u2002Feeling and looking tired throughout the day? Don\u2019t hit the coffee pot; instead, add a touch of concealer under your eyes. Redness around your nose? Concealer. A pesky zit? Ditto.

Powder.\u2002Use powder for any further touch-ups that need done. Also, you may need it after using blotting sheets.

In short, ladies, having the right beauty products on hand will prepare you to face anything that comes your way!

Claire Flowers traveled quite a bit for work. As a woman on the go, she was throwing away her pumps every three to four weeks. They just couldn\u2019t handle the stairs, escalators and rough pavement that were everyday parts of her lifestyle. Frustrated with the lack of shoes on the market that were comfortable, fashionable and durable, Flowers set out to make a shoe that was.

\u201cInitially, I was just going to find a manufacturer to make me 10 pairs of shoes, but there weren\u2019t any here in the States,\u201d she says. \u201cAbroad, I found out the minimum order number was too high.\u201d

However, as Flowers\u2019 friends and family started hearing about her mission, they expressed interest in a similar product. Eventually, she had a big enough order to get one run of shoes manufactured.

In December 2014, she launched her first round of production at an event in St. Louis\u2019 Central West End. The debut collection featured a classic pump shape with a 3\u00bd-inch heel in a variety of colors and was a success. The line of shoes includes features like memory foam insoles, heel caps to protect the wearer from getting stuck in grates, treaded nonslip soles and even protective heel plates.

Over the past few years, she focused on high heels and kitten heels. This fall, however, she’s expanding the line to include flats, boots and loafers. Those interested in being the first to see and purchase the new line can attend a launch event at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 24 at Union Station. To learn more and RSVP, email laurie@claireflowers.com.

In addition to shoes, Flowers has created a line of leather dresses with the same mindset. She wanted a dress that could transition from work to play and that would travel well. She created a timeless leather shift dress with a removable, washable satin lining to avoid leather cleaning costs. Once exclusively custom-made, her dresses are now ready to wear and are sold at the Fur and Leather Centre. In 2018, she plans to expand into different types of apparel, like shirts, and to mix textiles with the leather.

Whatever she\u2019s working on, Flowers has made it her mission to make sure it\u2019s quality, durable, comfortable and fashionable. As her brand continues to grow, she isn\u2019t slowing down. With a focus on timeless quality fashion over trendy fads, Flowers is certainly putting her best foot forward.

If clothes make the man, and Tailored Gents makes the clothes, founder Darryl Tyler deserves a lot of credit. Much like a coach or talent scout, Tyler turns what is into what could be, transforming wardrobes and providing men an easy outlet for custom clothing, from suits to handmade footwear.

\u201cTailored Gents is a lifestyle brand offering the finest luxury menswear to the modern man,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cFounded on traditional tailoring principles, our garments are designed and personalized to match each client\u2019s individual taste of style without compromising quality or craftsmanship.\u201d

Tyler launched Tailored Gents after nearly two decades in the corporate world and several years selling luxury menswear. Although he was ranked high among male stylists in the company, he decided to found his own business to gain more control on fabric, footwear and accessory items, along with pricing.

\u201cI formed Tailored Gents in 2015 and began courting and trying out different factories in Italy and Asia,\u201d he says. \u201cThe process of experimenting with different factories is expensive, as I had to make things for myself to gauge quality, turn time, consistency with measurements and pricing. I was able to secure relationships with my garment and shoe manufacturers in spring of 2016. At that point, I went live and ended my relationship with my previous menswear company.\u201d

Through these manufacturer relationships, Tyler helps clients create one-of-a-kind pieces perfect for their tastes, body types and lifestyles. He says there\u2019s a healthy mix of clients who look for his assistance while designing, as well as clients who take the reins.

\u201cOnce I have a sense of my client\u2019s style, I\u2019ll make recommendations, and it will evolve from there,\u201d he says, noting that most customers prefer having fabric and inspiration looks preselected. However, Tyler says this is sometimes merely the starting point. \u201cI do have some fashion-forward clients who pick out and design their own items,\u201d he continues, \u201cand I\u2019m always amazed at their creativity. I pick up many styling tips from interacting with my clients.\u201d

Tyler is tall and slim, and he explains his physique made buying off-the-rack apparel problematic before switching to custom. As opposed to settling for ill-fitting designs made to appeal to as many sizes as possible \u2013 or paying for after-the-fact fittings \u2013 Tyler recommends working with a clothier who can accommodate one-of-a-kind body characteristics.

\u201cThe majority of my first-time clients have never experienced a custom suit \u2013 made to measure or bespoke \u2013 so they\u2019re looking to have better-fitting clothes to address issues they have buying off the rack,\u201d says Tyler. He also notes the design options and convenience of working with a clothier, allowing clients to select the fabric and details without the hassle of shopping. \u201cMost of my clients live busy lives, so saving them time is very important,\u201d Tyler says.

One of Tailored Gents\u2019 main services is the wardrobe consultation. Before meeting, clients provide fashion and lifestyle information about the goals of their wardrobe and favorite brands. After the questionnaire involved in that step and a new client call, it\u2019s time for an initial meeting.

\u201cWe will discuss their long-term objectives of what they envision as a perfect wardrobe for personal and professional settings,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cFrom there, I recommend some staple items every man should have in their wardrobe and suggest a few pieces that reflect their personality.\u201d

Tyler explains that most new clients have an immediate need (a replacement suit or sport coat, for example, or a tuxedo for an event), so after that has been addressed, other pieces are identified and added over time. He aims to meet with his clients at least twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall.

Tailored Gents assists men primarily in the St. Louis area, although Tyler says he does have a dozen or so clients across the country. He notes entrepreneurs, doctors, bankers, military officers, sales representatives and financial advisers as frequent clients, but says variances in price point allow for a diverse audience.

\u201cA [Tailored Gents] man is someone who has influence within their social and professional settings and understands that his wardrobe is part of his personal branding,\u201d Tyler says. \u201cHe invests in himself and works with a stylist/clothier to establish a plan and execute over time as he would his accountant with tax planning, attorney with legal protection or financial adviser with asset accumulation. My goal is for my client to enjoy wearing everything in his closet, not just the popular few items in the front.\u201d

Amy Lynn Johnson worked as an environmental engineer for three years before ultimately realizing it wasn\u2019t her dream. She always knew she wanted to have her own creative product, but it was nearly a decade before her future in fashion design began to take shape. Johnson did take a valuable lesson from her time in engineering, where great order was created within chaos, leading to the name of her company: KayOss. After studying and training in fashion design in Florence, Italy, the Highland, Illinois, native returned to the St. Louis area and hit the ground running, co-founding the PRONTO Fashion Show in 2006, where she debuted her KayOss fashion line for the first time. KayOss products can be purchased at Johnson\u2019s pop-up boutiques, with online purchases available soon.

How would you describe the aesthetic of your line?

KayOss is all about being noticed, by the fabric movement, texture, color and design \u2013 adding a classy hint of flirt and feminine edge. It feels amazing to the touch, travels well and is timeless. It\u2019s meant to create conversation, inspire and bring out a woman\u2019s inner goddess. My clients tell me that their husbands never comment on their clothes, but when they wear KayOss, the compliments flow.

What inspires your designs?

I am inspired by fabrics. I go to Los Angeles and New York to search for the perfect fabrics and also meet with my reps that bring in fabric from Italy and France and other countries. I am always looking wherever I am traveling! My line is always changing, now moving to as much natural fibers as possible so the clothes can breathe and feel even more amazing. I am also inspired by my surroundings through travel. It all happens organically, which I can always see after the line is developed. I am currently taking ballet and spending a lot of time in nature, so we will see what happens next season!

Do you do all the design work, or do you work with a team?

I do the design work with input on structure from my amazing seamstresses and patternmakers. I also feel there is a design collaboration with my clients, as they request what they would like, and I get to work with so many different body types to see what moves and flows well. I built my business on trunk shows and charity fashion shows, fitting many, many women, changing and perfecting my patterns over the last 10 years. This has really helped me to understand women\u2019s different body types and what is necessary in designing garments that look good on their body, which in turn they feel great! That\u2019s my favorite part: to see how happy they are. I have the best clients \u2013 most of them have become good friends over the years.

What types of clothing do you sell?

I started with skirts, then added tops, dresses, coats and, most recently, pants. I also add fun pieces to my line sometimes \u2013 cardigans, kimonos, shrugs, tights, scarves, wraps. If it fits great, they can take it; if not, I can offer to fit them and have [an item custom]-made if I have the fabric available, which usually takes about two weeks. This allows a lot of flexibility if [the customer] would like [the article of clothing] longer, or with sleeves, or they just need a little extra room in some areas.

How does your company have a low carbon footprint?

Everything is designed and produced in St. Louis. I was an environmental engineer, so I keep aware of the process and work toward minimal waste as much as possible. My tag line is \u201cIf you do what you love and follow your heart, you will find your calm within the chaos.\u201d I truly believe this. I never felt connected when I was working in engineering, and the last thing I ever thought I would be doing is designing clothing. You never know. You just cannot give up. It\u2019s baby steps toward what feels right in your heart, so I work every day to incorporate this into all areas of my life.
