Here at JB we love to research the latest trends and must-haves, but we also realize that our readers live in some of the busiest cities in the world! Sometimes, less is more and finding the perfect product or look can certainly decrease am stress or even pm stress! We wanted to share some of the best beauty trends for the season that are also universally flattering on any woman!
Black winged eye-liner: With an ode to vintage glamour, this trend is a great way to open up your eyes for a come notice-me look. Celebutante beauties such as Lauren Conrad know that this is a great way to draw attention to eyes in an oh-so chic way. Try Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: the thin marker-like tip is easy to use even for the least experienced, and delivers a defined thin line to a dramatic bold line with precision.
Release your inner glam: Many of us might work in corporate environments and others in more creative work places, either way every fashion maven at one point or another likes to release their inner glamazon. Whether it's a glittering manicure or fun pedicure we adore these cruelty free polishes from Glamourous Cosmetics. Layering polishes is a huge trend right now and it's also a great way to have a little fun with your look. Bored with your manicure from a few days ago or showing chips? Loaded with hexagons and glitter, "Party in a Bottle" is our choice to "go glam."
The perfect cheek: Sometimes, all that is needed to wake up your face is a little blush. We're addicts for Nars Orgasm blush, but also wanted to explore different alternatives for our readers. Drug-store finds are no doubt eagerly welcomed by all, so we ventured out to test a few different blushes on the market to see what works. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush delivers a lasting flush of color and lays nicely on the skin. There are 10 flattering shades in a revolutionary powder-gel formula. Simply smile and apply a bit with your fingertip on the apples of your cheeks and voila, your ready to take on the day!
Vibrant eyes: Working 9 to 5 or whatever your hours may be can sometimes give us ladies tired, even worst, baggy eyes. A magical concealer that doesn't look as if you painted a mask under your eye is a fashionista's best friend. Erase Paste by Benefit is an amazing concealer. You literally will look "un-tired" in all of your photos (we know you probably use instagram). If you're working a long day and want to instantly look re-freshed in a moment this is the concealer for you. A little goes a long way, it's very blendable and well-worth the purchase.
Ballerina bun: Take cue from some of your favorite celebs and rock this look your way. How many times are you pressed for time, yet still want to look chic and pulled together? The beauty of this style is you can go more dramatic with a bun atop your head (think Sarah Jessica Parker) or for a work environment go more subdued. This hairstyle looks fabulous with more edgy looks such as leather skinny leggings or studded tops and a fierce shoe - mixing feminine with bold. Also, there's no "right" way to do the bun, it can be sleek or it can be more natural with a loose look - that's the beauty of this hairstyle!
