It’s been a long week wrapping up projects cooped up in my office so on Friday I finally got a blowout and starting playing with some of my black friday purchases — how good are these Eliza J pants? I round up my favorite sparkle tops below but quick side bar I have been in hair hell lately. Overly processing my hair finally caught up with me during my last session and the stylist left in my toner too long (and then tried to fix it by literally murdering my strands).
As we previously announced, Benefit Cosmetics and BaubleBar unveiled three unique gift sets on January 27th. To celebrate, this week we got to meet Benefit beauty genie, Simone and celebrity psychic, Stacey Wolf for an evening of flawless fortunes. After cocktails, makeup touch-ups, and love life predictions, our future is even brighter (especially thanks to our new beauty must-have, their Roller Lash mascara).
What woman doesn’t want beauty and baubles all in one pretty package? And with Valentine’s around the corner, BaubleBar x Benefit has unveil three unique gift sets including: Sparkle, Shine & All Things Fine, Real Romance & A Rosy Future and Love, Luck & Long Lashes— each including one fabulous BaubleBar accessory and one to two cult-classic Benefit products.
On Monday night, Neutrogena threw their annual holiday party, turning Paintbox in SoHo into a glittering white “Beauty Wonderland”. The event, in partnership with Rogaine, Rembrandt, BaubleBar, and Band-Aid, was hosted by Neutrogena brand ambassador Emma Roberts. Between mini makeovers with Amy Oresman, holiday hairstyling with Neutrogena Brand Ambassador Sam Leonardi, and polishing our fingertips with Paintbox, we caught up with the gorgeous star of American Horror Story, Emma Roberts to chat about winter beauty!
PC: What is your #1 seasonal beauty transition tip?
Emma Roberts: “Keep using SPF! So many people stop using sunscreen in the winter for some reason. I’m fair skinned and I made the mistake once when it was overcast and I never will again! I burn at the sight of the sun. “
PC: Do you stick to a fall/winter routine?
Emma Roberts: “Yes, always stick to a routine. If you’re not washing your face every night, it’s going to make dryness worse. Wash your face nightly and put your moisturizer on every morning. Don’t ever forget to take off your make-up. That’s why I keep Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes in my purse, in my bathroom, and everywhere else so I have no excuse not to take it off.”
PC: What do you think of the “bare face” trend?
Emma Roberts: “I like the bare face especially because so many girls hide behind a ton of make-up. It’s nice when you have make-up on but look like yourself. You’re accentuating your features instead of hiding behind the product.”
PC: How do you achieve a natural look?
Emma Roberts: “I use Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Classic Ivory. You can use it all over your face but I also use it just as concealer under my eyes and around my nose and chin. Then, I use the Healthy Lengths Mascara. It’s so easy and looks naturally pretty. I also carry the MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in every color in my bag to change my look by my lip color. They are so sheer you can also layer them on top of each other.”
PC: Since you’re always traveling, do you do any beauty treatments on the plane?
Emma Roberts: “I see girls in full-face make-up and I’m scrubbing mine off in the bathroom. Since most beauty products get confiscated, I carry the Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes, which they can’t take away from me! Once, I saw a girl putting stilettos on to get off the plane and I was putting on fuzzy socks from Target. I wondered if I was missing something. “
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner BaubleBar is giving us so many reasons to be sweet for them! By now you probably already love BaubleBar for its affordable, awesome priced jewelry that
This week, I’m posting fall previews to to kick off #STYLEMONDAY, I thought I’d show off one of my favorite fall fashion trends!
From Donna Karen to BCBG to Karen Walker one of the biggest trend to hit the catwalk for the Fall/Winter 2013 shows was knit hats! And not just as part of your puffy jacket or cold day fashion; as in literally paired with anything your dress pants to cocktail dresses. I for one am obsessed with big beanies — and actually rarely leave home without one in the fall and winter months since I’m ALWAYS cold. However,
This just in! Launching today, Erin Kleinberg of The Coveteur is the latest Guest Bartender for BaubleBar!
The Coveteur has worked with BaubleBar to curate a collection of jewelry centered around their personal style. Touching on their love for vintage-inspired accessories, super-saturated accents, flair for the eclectic personal pieces and penchant for leopard prints.
“Neon, much like leopard print, is practically a neutral for us. Brights are ideal for mixing and clashing with the basics, and our Coveteurs all have a soft spot for a vividly-hued dangling earring. Super-saturated accents lend a lot of impact to more bling-y pieces, like a chandelier earring”, says Erin Kleinberg President and Creative Director of The Coveteur.
This collection, which ranges in price from $18-$42, is now available on BaubleBar! Learn more at http://www.baublebar.com/
The monogram craze is nothing new, although my deep love and affection for anything with my initials and/or blog name has only seemed to grow with time! Call it vanity — although I prefer to think of it as more personalized or special but everything looks better with my initials on it!
1. stella & dot Signature Initial Charms ($26 each) – Sterling silver initial charms. Simple and to the point, they are great on their own or mix and matched with other charms.
2. C. Wonder Reversible Pebbled Leather Belt Strap ($48) – C. Wonder has a whole section of their store and website dedicated to monogramming. The versatility of a reversible belt, plus initial combo is genius.
3. BaubleBar Medium Monogram necklace ($110) – This is a staple in my jewelry box and a great layering piece. It’s also available in silver and in a variety of sizes.
4. fleur du mal Say My Name Custom Monogram Panty ($98) – It doesn’t get any sexier then this pair of undies. (No seriously, find me a hotter pair). You can also have your name (or his…) written out, and is available in two shades of pink and your choice of thread color. Bridal shower gift anyone?
5. C. Wonder Wide Enamel Initial Bangle ($58) – as of the next time I go
