3 Diffusion Lines That Should Be On Your Radar

It’s a common myth that you have to break your wallet to look good or get designer style. It’s always the question of whether to opt for the quick, cheap outfit or spring for an invest piece, a quality piece you’ll have for a while. Have no fear – diffusion lines are here! Diffusion lines are great because they allow you to get the newest designer fashions minus the hefty price tag. Why do we love diffusion lines? Take a look at three we’ve been eyeing and see for yourself…

Price: Range from $29.50-$375
Why: Blast from the Past. Mod Vibe of the ’60s
Style: Late 60s mod fashion mixed with in your face prints and bold & bright colors.
Tip: Influenced by runway trends, get ready for a blast back to a time of geometric jewelry, graphic scarves, capris, and keyhole details. Match a solid colored piece along with a graphic one to stand out amongst the masses. Take a sneak peek into the collection here!

Oscar Beauty: Our Top 5 Picks!

This year’s Academy Awards was all about updated classic beauty: glamorous waves and up-do’s accompanied by  classic makeup with a modern twist. Needless to say everyone looked gorg!

We’ve hand picked our top 5 favorite Oscar beauty moments for you to snag some beauty inspiration.

1. Jessica Chastain. I love this classic Hollywood glam look. A bold red lip, thick liner, and soft waves. This would hands down be my go-to look if I was ever lucky enough to strut the red carpet. Looks beautiful on everyone and never goes out of style!

2. Jennifer Lawrence. I really can’t get enough of her! Her look was effortless and beautiful, with a chic up-do and sultry (yet subtle) smoky eye. Not only is this look Oscar-worthy, but it is perfect transitional style to wear to work and weekend.

3. Charlize Theron. My personal favorite. With her new pixie ‘do paired with glowing makeup, Charlize  looks fresh faced and completely stunning (as always).

4. Kelly Rowland. Completely KILLING it on the red carpet this season, am I right?! Kelly was a complete knockout –  with a chic (and easy do it yourself) topknot and a pink lip/smoky eye combo.

5. Jennifer Aniston. I’m always inspired by Jen’s signature surfer girl, laid-back style. She proves that it doesn’t take loads of makeup and extravagant hair to look amazing. You can achieve this look with some mascara and liner, a touch of bronzer, and a pop of nude gloss.

Hi! Let’s play catchup, shall we?

This trend-a-holic is a tired trend-a-holic. I’ve been crazy busy lately with lots of exciting stuff. This morning I did two fashion segments with FOX29 in Philly (will post clips soon!).

And last week, I was on The Better Show where I showed how to style spring trends for the cool temps!

So without further adieu here’s how to wear top spring styles right now! :)

Glad we could catch up!

Beauty Week: 6 Tips For Pretty Lips

1. Make lips look bigger by using a lighter lip shade in the center to act as a highlighter. (video tutorial here)

2. If your teeth are looking a little yellow, opt for a red lip color with blue undertones. Our pick: The Body Shop’s Colour Lip Guide in Cherry Sparkle, $12.

3. Exfoliate your lips to prep for a bright or dark lip shade. All you need is brown sugar and olive oil to make a DIY exfoliant.

4. Keep lip color in place! Lining lips will help keep color in the lines and off of the rest of your face.

5. Cut your chances of unsightly lipstick on your teeth. Pucker lips pop your pointed finger in and out of your moth to take off excess color.

6. Not sure what lip color works for you? Check out this cool tool on The Body Shop’s site that shows your what works for your specific hair and skin tone.

Beauty Week: How To Wear Blue Eyeshadow (Giveaway From The Body Shop!!!)

I’m all about color and lately the new hot hue for your eyes is blue. I know, it’s an intimidating color to wear, although Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Emma Stone make it look flawless.

Today, my friend & makeup artist Jackie Johnson (we met when she did my makeup for a TV segment!) is here to guide us through rocking the blue hue with ease. The pictures are me following along to her expert guidance. Trust me – you’re about to get obsessed!  - Jessie

As a makeup artist for over 10 years I’ve learned many unique ways of applying makeup. I started at Nordstrom years ago where I learned my skills working for lines such as Bobbi Brown,Clinique, and Lancôme.

Now that I own my own company, Bella by Jackie, I teach women how to accentuate their own beauty.  After talking with many of my clients most woman want to keep makeup simple and fun!

Use the bright blue (our pick: The Body Shop’s Colour Crush in Something Blue, $10) as a pop of color on your lid for a fun spring look during the day with a bright top or more bold at night. Always remember to keep the rest of your makeup balanced.  Use the Champagne shade (Colour Crush in Golden Girl, $10) for a more blended look. Use the Champagne color as a highlighter on the lid or under your brow bone. Have fun with color and makeup! Experiment, just like you would with fashion!

1.  Prime eyelid with concealer all over the eye, from eye lashes to beneath the eyebrow.
2. Apply light champagne eyeshadow all over eyelid with a flat eyeshadow brush, do not go past your brow bone.

3. With a angle brush for blending, sweep the blue eyeshadow in the cease in the direction of a “V”.
4. Line the upper eye lid with the blue eyeshadow with a eyeliner brush, slightly damping the brush do increase the color.

 5. Curl and coat lashes with black mascara. We used Big & Curvy from The Body Shop, $18.

Beauty Week: 4 Products To Add Sun to Your Skin Instantly (Giveaway!!)

Beat the winter blues and awaken your skin. The winter tends to leave skin dry and dull, while celebs walk the red carpet looking anything but. They’re glowing, shimmering, and the skin they’re in definitely doesn’t look like it hasn’t seen the sun in eight months.  Instead, our favorite leading ladies appear perfectly sun kissed,  dewy, and radiant for the red carpet.

Bronze Babes: Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Lea Michele, Jennifer Aniston

And they’re not tanning, seeing as that’s a major beauty DON’T. They’re faux glowing with spray tans, lotions, and makeup.

These four products will add that just-back-from-vacation color in minutes.

1. Body Oil: This stuff will add shimmer, moisture, and will give your skin a subtle warm hue. Skin won’t only look great, but will smell and feel good too!

We Recommend: HONEY BRONZE SHIMMERING DRY OIL, $22

2. Bronzer: Don’t just douse your face in bronzer. Instead apply toward your hair line, shade around your cheek bones, and blend. Here’s our quick video tutorial.

Tip: If you’re looking for a matte finish, try The Body Shop’s HONEY BRONZING POWDER, $19. 

3. Shimmer Powder: This stuff is ideal for the girl on the go. Toss in your bag and use for quick touchups. It’s great post workout since it travels with ease. Use a face wipe after your workout and then brush on a little bronze. Plus, this brush is cruelty free. The Body Shop’s HONEY BRONZE BRILLIANCE POWDER, $22.

Tip: Lightly brush chest and arms to add subtle color.

4. Bronzing Gel: If powder bronzer intimidates you, try a gel. Apply a thin layer over face and blend into neck. It goes on easy and less is more. No shading required. The Body Shop’s HONEY BRONZE BRONZING GEL FOR FACE, $14.
