Hello BH Beauties!
Did you get a chance to watch the BET awards this past Sunday? Between the #LionelRitchie fail and Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech, it was a crazy night of performances. Oh course, since we’re makeup addicts, we were focused on the red carpet beauties!
Here are some of our favorites:
Gabrielle Union! Can you believe she is 41? She looked stunning at the BET awards with gorgeous hair and radiant, dewy skin. Her brows were flawless and her eyes were lightly lined and finished with a full lash. Her lips were neutral and glossy, and her face had just the right amount of contouring. We love this simple, elegant look!
Actress Zendaya wore a similar look with a neutral peach lipstick and dark-lined eyes, heavy mascara, and perfect brows. Her skin looked gorgeous and sun-kissed and looked fabulous with her casual outfit.
Jennifer Hudson paired thick winged eyeliner and heavy mascara with a bright red lip, keeping the look simple so all attention was directed to her sexy new pixie cut!
Nicki Minaj – if you only remember her from the crazy colored wig days, you might not have recognized her at the BET awards with long, dark hair in tight curls. She kept the focus on her gorgeous hair by keeping her makeup neutral pairing defined brows, simple lined eyes and a glossy lip. To copy her look, don’t forget to use a highlighter to mimic her stunning cheekbones.
We’re not sure what’s going on between Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj, but we love Iggy’s bright pink lips (kind of like our pop cultured lipstick!), winged eye and shimmery eye makeup.
Kenya Moore paired a beautiful orange lip (try Sweet Mango) with tight-lined eyes and thick, full lashes. Her brows are also thick – another big trend we noticed at this year’s awards!
What was your favorite look at the BET awards this year?
Clothes and cosmetics, the two essentials to any beauty lifestyle. Remarkably, we can fine tune our wardrobes and looks to tailor any feeling or any particular style we want – just a few adjustments to items or a different way of applying your eyeliner and you have an entirely new look! But besides the abundance of clothes that crowd our closets and the piles of make up that clutter our counters, many of us turn to nail polish to add just a touch more depth to our everyday choices.
Polish provides an outfit for our nails! Sometimes we prefer a deep and rich berry to attend to our sultry mood; colors like Wine or Truffle, which can be found in both our new nail lines. However, other days we head for the bright and vibrant reds, playful pinks, pretty purples or the beautiful shades of blues to match our high-energy moods! The options are endless and we are never limited by the array of colors available for our nails.
With two stunning sets of 10 colors each, BH Cosmetics has got all you need in the polish department! If you’re feeling bright and energetic, looking for those corals and lavenders mixed with a few deeply irresistible shades than the Flirty Collection is just for you! Not only are the colors playful but, the more pastel choices add a beautiful mix sophistication and fun to your everyday look.
Secondly, we have the Mystery Collection. Perfectly tailored for the sexy seductress, we have compiled a mix of colors from radiant reds to metallic to plum to the ever-popular turquoises. The choices here are daring, yet beautiful for day or night. Bold colors never go out of style and neither will this Mystery Collection!
Out of 20 possible colors, I would love to know your favorite! Tell me in the comments!
BH Cosmetics recently partnered up with the fabulous HaulerDeals to launch a fun and informative live video cast with Spreecast providing education and instruction on the best way to use our products. BH Cosmetics reached the heart of its Internet presence by gathering seven of our most high-profile users. The goal was to share benefits of the product line and instruction while also having a great time!
These seven influencers, also known as Beauty Gurus, were chatting up the live feed, answering questions from viewers, while others were in our chairs getting glammed up with BH Cosmetic make up artists and learning about hot new products! BH Cosmetics was lucky enough to work with such gorgeous gals including Weylie Hoang (ILIkeWeylie), Olga Kay (Olga Kay), Teni Panosian (MissMaven), Jessica Cellona (IlyJessicaOmg), Melissa Ruy (BohemianRagz22), Linsay Cellona (labellavitalc), and Jenny Wu (GoodBad&Fab).
At this Handbags and Makeup Party, the new BH Cosmetics Glamorous Blush Palette was launched; which features 10 dazzling shades that complimented each guru that sat in our chairs! Along with this knock out palette, each pretty pout was sure to be pleased with the new BH Cosmetics Creme Luxe Lipsticks! The choices are endless with these 12 hydrating, yet perfectly pigmented lipsticks. Many of the YouTube gurus stated that these new launches are must-haves in their beauty bags!
For those who tuned into this extravagant event, it is no mystery that we held a “sneak peak” of our up and coming products! It was exciting to give these major beauty influencers a glance at products that will be welcomed into our beauty line this Fall.
With the success of this event and the ongoing development and launch of new collections, BH Cosmetics plans to host similar influencer parties each month!

These palettes from BH Cosmetics were released recently as part of the California Makeup Collection. At only $10 each, these are a great deal! Each palette comes with 16 eye shadows and 4 blushes and are designed with California in mind. Whether you’re looking for a bright and bold look, or something more soft and neutral, the California Makeup Collection can do it all!
This is the BH San Francisco palette. The outside packaging hints at what is inside- cool toned eye shadows in blues, browns and greys (and more!). This palette is a must-have for spring!
When you open up the sides, you get a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The colors in the picture are the inspiration for the shades in this palette.
The sides are magnetized so it’s easy to open and close.
As you can see, the eyeshadows on each side look quite different. The left hand side is dark and smokey and mainly matte. The right hand side has lighter shades in both matte and shimmer.
The back of the palettes states:
“Inspired by the classic San Francisco city, this palette contains eye and face colours that can transform you into a sophisticated bay area girl. Cool tones and feminine colours get you ready for gloom or shine.”
I can definitely see this palette being great to use on both gloomy and bright days!
Here are close-ups of each side. I’ve indicated which colours are matte and which are shimmer.
If you look closely as each side, you can see that the top four eyeshadows and the bottom four eyeshadows are like separate quads. This helps to show you which eyeshadows work really well with each other.
The above photo is swatches of the eye shadows from the left side of the palette. You can see in this photo that eye shadows beside each other go well together! These are mainly matte finish and can definitely be built up for a more opaque look. My favorite color on this side is the gold one! It’s very smooth and pigmented.
Here are swatches of the eyeshadows from the right side of the palette. These are mainly shimmery, but there are some matte finish ones as well. The pigmentation of the shimmery eyeshadows is great and they’re easy to blend. The matte mint green is a classic spring colour.
I recommend wearing these eyeshadows with some sort of eye primer or cream base. This will make them last longer and remain crease-free! The BH Cosmetics Eye and Lip Primer and Eye Crayons are examples, but anything similar will work.
When you open up the middle part of the palette, four blushes are revealed. This palette has a great mix of colors which you can use to highlight and add color to your cheeks. There is also a good-sized mirror inside making this palette great for those of you always on-the-go!
Although these are labelled as blushes, the top two can definitely be used as a highlighter and/or a bronzer. This quad of face powders has a great combination of neutrals and brights, making it a versatile palette that can be used anytime, any day!
In this photo, the first two are the highlight colours and the last two are the blush colours. I really like the second peachy-coloured one! I think it’d be a great highlighter to use in the summer to give you a nice glow.
If you’re looking for a palette that can take you from rain to shine or day to night, this palette is for you! It’s small and compact, has a great mirror and is filled with a variety of colours to choose from.
