Welcome to Cynthia Hudson Style

Hello and Welcome to Cynthia Hudson Style!

I am a 40-something (ok, pushing 50), married, mom of 4 kids and a toy poodle and I’m a personal stylist/shopper.  I have always loved and had fun with fashion, beauty products and shopping! Most importantly, I enjoy helping women build their confidence through what they wear and help them build a wardrobe that works!

Cynthia Hudson Style will focus on fashion and beauty for the 40+ women.  Through a mix of original photography, things discovered on-line, in-store or out and about, I will bring you outfit ideas, shopping links, latest trends in fashion, beauty, accessories, shoes, jewelry, styling ideas, new products, shops and things that inspire me (and, hopefully you)!

I welcome your comments and feedback! (see Speak Your Mind at bottom)  Additionally, “Ask Cynthia” is a feature where I answer your fashion and beauty questions.  Please consider subscribing so you receive my blog into your in-box as I publish posts. (see Sign Up to Keep In Touch at right)

The dress I am wearing in the photos that follow is Madewell’s Flutter-back Overlay Maxi Dress.  I fell in love with the ease, color and comfort of this dress.  And, adore the open, but not too open back.   It is also versatile. By changing up the accessories, makeup and shoes it could work for day or evening. It is available at Madewell stores and at Nordstrom. (click on store names for link to store.)

I accessorized for a casual day event by wearing a beaded bracelet and beaded hoop earrings, as well as, my grandmother’s ring.  Sunglasses are by Chanel.   My lip and nail color are my go-to summer reds: Nail color is Essie in Clambake and Lip Colour is by Laura Mercier in Portofino Red.                                                                              Carola_Muis (3 of 13) Carola_Muis (4 of 13) Carola_Muis (5 of 13) Carola_Muis (6 of 13) Carola_Muis (7 of 13)

Classic Sunglasses

 

Classic sunglasses – the best possible accessory you can invest in!!  Wake up in the morning,  splash water on your face, moisturize, put on some lip gloss , pop on your sunglasses and you are ready to face the world looking good!!

Take the time to find the perfect pair.  You must consider your face shape and where the bridge of the glasses rest on your nose.  And, importantly, high quality lenses protect your eyes from the suns damaging rays.  So, make an investment in a quality pair that provide the dual benefits of eye protection and looking chic!

What is your favorite sunglass shape and brand?

A few of my favorite beauty things!

I have always enjoyed trying out different beauty products, comparing brands and playing with different looks.  There are so many products it can be overwhelming!  I do have a few favorites that I am sharing here.  They perform well — lasting, great texture, multiple and flattering color options and they fulfill their product promise.

If you have good skin (good tone and texture) a tinted moisturizer is a good choice for you. I’ve found the  NARS tinted moisturizer has better coverage than many other brands.  In the evening I will use the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance underneath the tinted moisturizer or under a full-coverage foundation.  It provides a wonderfully natural radiant glow! NARS Matte Lip Pencils offer some of the best reds on the market and they stay on and on!! Laura Mercier’s Paint Wash Liquid Lip Color is a newer product that has a smooth feel especially if you prefer a lip gloss and wand application.  Dior Lipsticks are decadent – smooth and creamy and come in a sea of color choices.
