Vogue Take-Aways and Significance

On Monday, I featured some of the previous week's comical/serious highlights from the Spring 2016 Paris Runway.  (HERE)  Now that it is all over, Vogue has chosen some of their favorite take-aways and I thought it might be fun to review some of those.

If you are interested in standing out in a crowd,
then Paris Fashion Week offered no shortage of beauty statements for taking your personal style to the next level. Here are some ideas Vogue thinks are worth stealing from the runways.

 Hair
  I mentioned previously what some consider the appeal of power ponytails.

Eyes
Instead of the classic winged liquid cat-eye look that has been popular, Louis Vuitton used black eyeliner in starburst patterns or sketched into geometric forms. 

Another way to stand out after dark, is with sparkle: A rimming of electric blue glitter along the lash lines or reflective silver on the lids.  This would really make you shine or glow after dark. 
 Hair Accessories 
If you’re looking for a way to organize pigtails or create a messy knot or bun, the season’s decorative hair accessories hold the key. For evening, you may want to try Chanel’s metallic barrettes or just twist or knot it up and attach a tacky ribbon.
Lips
The red lip is really big right now, and the easiest way to recreate a classic crimson comes down to the finish. You might want to top off that red lipstick with the high-gloss finish of car paint.
Skin
Fresh skin and undone waves are taking a turn for the romantic. Offering up the week’s prettiest incarnation of the look, Alexander McQueen’s vibrant skin and flushed cheeks focused on a soft new femininity.
So, what can we take away from Vogue's seven beauty choices?

On or off the runway, the sounding call for body confidence and individuality has never been out of style.

What makes you feel confident?

Is it knowing that your makeup is perfectly and creatively applied?

Is it wearing the most current fashions?

Or is it knowing that your hairstyle is the most becoming for you?

Is it knowing you are a strong person and have accomplished what you were designed to do?

For some confident women, it may be all of these and more.

But, for the Christian Woman of Significance, we know that we are an expression of His workmanship and creativity.

 Our confidence comes from recognizing our positional worth - that we are significant in God's eyes - and therefore, we have a confidence not of ourselves but through Him.

When we discover our significance and confidence in the eyes of God, we are empowered to develop the virtues that make a significant life - a significance that is from Him, through Him, and to Him.

"As water reflects the face,
    so one’s life reflects the heart."

Proverbs 27:19
