Pacheco took time to dish with us on the latest trends in bridal beauty. Get ready to say ‘I do’ to these looks!




Inquiring brides wanna know! What are some of the bridal style trends in hair this year?  This season we are seeing a lot of trendy half updo’s accented with flowy curls, a braid or flower crown incorporated into the look. This style is especially popular with some of our younger brides. What are brides doing most often for their makeup? What’s popular right now? Brides want to look like a glammed-up version of themselves. They want makeup that will enhance their features without going too over the top. Soft eye makeup with natural, full lashes and a soft, peachy lip is what most of the beGlammed brides have been requesting.


 

What’s the best way to choose a hair stylist/makeup artist for your big day?

We highly encourage brides to do a hair/makeup trial with a stylist weeks before their big day! This will give them plenty of time to talk about their look and provide as much inspiration as possible.

If a bride doesn’t love her consultation, this will give her plenty of time to find another stylist or artist that’s a better fit.


What are some of the biggest hair and makeup mistakes brides tend to make?

When it comes to hair, the biggest mistake brides make is rocking an updo! Most brides feel they need to wear an updo for their wedding day. Ladies, we’re in 2015!

There are so many great inspirational resources. Start your search early for ideas. You will soon find that there are so many more ways to wear your hair that are both comfortable and full of stylish flair.

Wondering what the biggest bridal mistakes are when it comes to makeup? Look out for Part 2 of our wedding chat soon!

Give Your Skin A Break: How To Go Without A Full Face of Makeup



Get the Most Popular Beauty World News Stories in a Weekly Newsletter

We get so used to our makeup routine that it can be really hard to part from it!

Whether you’re going to the gym or even just making a quick run to the supermarket, many of us feel the need to break out the foundation and concealer. Sure it’s great to want to always look your best, but we have to give our skin a break sometimes.

Enter our newest idea for a weekend warrior beauty challenge. No, we’re not going to suggest you go completely cold turkey and avoid any and all makeup (even we couldn’t do that), but the following makeup suggestions might still might be a bit of a challenge for ya.

Beauty Expert, Jessica Wakeman weighed in on ways we can lighten the load on our faces and still look just as beautiful with minimal makeup. Who knows, these tips might spill over into your actual work week! The goal? Fresh, clear skin with the least amount of effort, as well as the least amount of product.

Forget the Foundation. Just say no! Instead, be generous with the moisturizer. “It’s the best way to achieve a dewy, glow-like complexion before you even think about breaking out the bronzer,” Wakeman concurred. “Spend extra time massaging it in and get the blood flowing in your face.”

Put The Powder Down. Stay away from powder in your minimal makeup routine. Yes, we know it helps combat unwanted shine, but trust us on this one. “Powder can in fact make your skin look even duller,” Wakeman added. “Instead, use a BB or CC cream to even out your skin tone.”

Skip The Heavy Concealer. Probably one of the hardest makeup products to part with, you gotta give this one a break too. But don’t worry, Wakeman has still got you covered (pun intended). The expert says to opt for a liquid highlighter instead. 

“Using a highlighter reflects light on the high points of your face while adding a little bit of shimmer,” Jessica explained. “Using a liquid instead of powder also creates a more moisturized look.”

Bronze It Up. Nothing covers up facial flaws like a great tan. So skip the sun and create your own! “Applying a bronzer all over the face can act as an at-home way of getting some color,” Wakeman agreed. “Be it your favorite SmashBox bronzer or a self-tanner like St. Tropez, giving your complexion a boost is a must for a natural glow!”

Sophia Bush smells great, and she knows it.

The former “One Tree Hill” has partnered with beauty entrepreneur Randi Shinder in Shinder’s fragrance and body line called “I Smell Great,” launched in November. Sophia will be an ambassador and equity partner, and her title will be cofounder, writes WWD.

“Working with Randi is a dream come true,” Sophia told WWD. “Everything with our company is based on new and leading technology, from the scent spheres to the extractions. We want to get to the heart of why women love beauty and what makes them feel special. Marrying those concepts of technology and beauty truly equals greatness.”

Canada Free Press writes that as soon as the news of Sophia’s partnership was announced, online sales for the brand “skyrocketed.”

On Instagram, Sophia wrote, “Remember earlier when I said ‪#‎pinchme‬ because this is a dream-come-true day?! Well seriously guys someone pinch me!! I just got word from theI Smell Great IT team that because so many of you lovely/supportive/curious and AMAZING babes are flocking toismellgreat.com, falling in love with our creations, and ordering goodies for yourselves that the site keeps crashing!!

“We have extra team members on it, working like mad to add bandwidth and make sure all of you can keep browsing and discovering. Thank you so much for your patience and support! I’m beyond floored. Beyond grateful. I guess we broke the Internet. ‪#‎BestFansEver‬ ‪#‎BrainsMeetBeauty‬ ‪#‎LiveGreat‬ ‪#‎Greatness‬.”

So what does it mean to smell great? The collection, which retails from $28 to $68, is based on the scents of powdered sugar, candied flower petals, tropical breezes and honey, with new scents planned for later this year. All scents are sold online at ismellgreat.com.

Fake Makeup Brands And Counterfeit Cosmetics Online: How To Spot A Fake



Get the Most Popular Beauty World News Stories in a Weekly Newsletter




Counterfeit Cosmetics

Remember when we warned you about counterfeit cosmetics being sold online? The danger is still out there and you have to protect yourself.

We recently sat down with Andrew Brodsky, Commercial Director of NetNames. NetNames specializes in online brand protection and anti-counterfeiting services. Check out what this expert had to tell us on how to keep our cosmetics collection counterfeit-free.

What exactly are counterfeit cosmetics? Is this the makeup equivalent of a fake designer bag?

While they are both fake and both mislead the public, counterfeit cosmetics pose a very real danger. They often contain high levels of harmful materials. For example, fake versions of cosmetics by MAC and Benefit have been found to contain up to 19 times the legal level of lead.

While a counterfeit bag and counterfeit lipstick are both fake, the lipstick is far more dangerous. It can possibly contain arsenic, mercury, copper and cadmium.

How long has the market for counterfeit cosmetics been around?

Counterfeit cosmetics have been offered online since virtually the beginning of ecommerce. Any time a new product is launched, whether it’s an iPhone or a makeup compact, you can bet that a counterfeiter is going to produce a fake copy of it.  

What type of beauty products are most typically counterfeited?

In a shipping container recently confiscated by the U.K. police, they found over 4,700 fake versions of popular MAC products. These included lip gloss, mascara, foundation and bronzer. As a rule, the more popular a product is, the more likely you’ll see it being counterfeited.    

What are the dangers in purchasing counterfeit beauty products?

The toxic levels of mercury, lead and arsenic in many of these fake formulations have led to serious illness, severe allergic reactions, long-term health problems and in at least one reported case, death. The buyer must definitely beware.

Johnny Depp Is The Face Of New Dior Men’s Fragrance

Johnny Depp is joining Jennifer Lawrence and Natalie Portman at Dior! The 52-year-old “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor has been announced as the new face of an upcoming men’s fragrance.

WWD reports that Depp will appear in advertising for the yet-to-be-revealed scent, due out in September. It will be the first time Depp has appeared in a fragrance campaign.

Louise Rosen, founder and CEO of Paris-based consultancy for luxury brands The Message Inc., told WWD that the campaign is “great news for Dior.”

“Johnny Depp is a mainstream eccentric. It’s quite a contradiction, and it is the key conundrum that perfume houses are permanently trying to solve: How to please everyone – to maximize sales – and at the same time be unique, novel, original – to cut through the market noise. A somewhat dark, serious, respected actor, [he is] a man who has values, a man of integrity,” she said.

“He’s the last guy you’d expect to sign for a fragrance, and so, yes, it does bring depth and probably longevity to the story. The latest celebrity won’t do. At a time when everyone can star in their own piece of personal advertising, you need someone who has achieved more than having a Twitter account. This Johnny has.”

We can’t wait to see the campaign!

Maile Pacheco, beauty veteran and creator of beGlammed, has answered our rapid fire wedding questions to make your quest for the perfect wedding day glam much easier.

Maile, what are the biggest makeup mistakes brides most often tend to make?

When it comes to makeup, the biggest mistake women make with their bridal look would definitely have to be not wearing waterproof mascara and foundation! Once those tears start flowing, so will their makeup.





If a bride’s makeup artist does not take the right steps to ensure their beautiful look stays on all night through the sweat and the tears, it’s a hot mess waiting to happen.

 What makes celebs like Mariah Carey and Paris Hilton love your services?

beGlammed is so convenient! Our services are consistent and we have amazing celebrity stylists that can take care of them.  

We are also in more cities than all other beauty apps, so they can book beGlammed whenever they travel.

Most beautiful celebrity brides of all time would have to be…

Without a doubt the most beautiful brides would have to be Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Gwen Stefani, Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Most recent beautiful brides of Hollywood and beyond would have to be…

Nicole Kidman, Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Lauren Conrad, Amber Heard and Cameron Diaz all stunned as brides.

What about hair and makeup for the bridal party? Any trends/rules for bridesmaids to follow?

Never outshine the bride! It’s her special day, so bridesmaids can’t be too picky about their own hair and makeup.

The bride is the first priority. Make her feel special, unique and do whatever you can to pump her up on her special day.

Any additional tips and tricks for brides-to-be?

Be sure to do a trial with your makeup artist and hairstylist before your wedding day and have lots of photos of looks you love for inspiration to show your glam team!

6 Summer Diet & Skin Care Tips To Keep You Looking Your Best For Summer 2015

Summer is only here for a few precious months. Let’s make them count and become the best beach beauties we can! Lifestyle expert Jeanne Kissman and founder of PlumHill pure body essentials, agrees. She gave us the scoop on a few of her favorite diet, fashion and skin care tips. Try any or all of these juicy beauty bits out to make your summer a bit more sunny.

 

Take a cold shower. A hot shower will enhance the effects of dry skin after a hot day in the sun. Take a cold shower to lower the temperature of your skin and reduce acne breakouts.

 

Red Wine

Drink some red wine. Treat yourself to a glass of red wine before spending time in the sun. Studies suggest that the flavonoids found in the skin of red grapes may reduce the sun’s ability to destroy skin cells. Not only does wine taste yummy, but it also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. 

 

Wide Brimmed Hats

Wear a wide-brimmed hat. Protect your skin and hair from the sun’s damaging rays by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. The hat will also protect your scalp and prevent sunburn. 

Watermelon

Dine on melons. Beautiful summer skin comes from within. Eat a lot of cantaloupe and watermelon. These fruits are filled with antioxidants and will help hydrate the skin. Enjoy radiant summer skin by eating a healthy diet.   

Stock up on strawberries. Use fresh strawberries to freshen up your complexion. Simply cut large strawberries in half, squeeze them to release the juices and rub them in circular motions over your face. Leave the juices on your face for 2-3 minutes and then rinse. This will brighten sun and age spots to even your skin tone. 

Protect your hair before swimming. Wet hair will absorb fewer chemicals like chlorine than dry hair. Be sure to keep hair braided or pinned up to prevent unruly tangles. And avoid a tight bun, as wet hair is susceptible to breakage when it is pulled.
