Hi beauties!

BH Cosmetics was kind enough to send me their three new Baked Eyeshadow Palettes. If you don’t know who BH Cosmetics are, they are an online cosmetic shop that sells good quality makeup and accessories for low prices. You can buy these palettes on their website here. The prices are very low considering the quality you are getting and to top it off they are always having sales and discounts on their items. These palettes all retail for $19.95 each but they are now on sale for only $11.95. Pretty amazing!!!

The packaging is really cute and sleek and each palette has a different theme. There is the “Wild Child” palette, the “Wild & Free” palette and the “Wild at Heart” palette. I love the names and the overall look of these palettes. As written on the packaging these shadows are all baked. Baked shadows usually have a much more intense and vibrant pigmentation. These definitely do not fall short and are actually ALL quite amazing. (you will see soon with the swatches)

I just love how colorful and fun these palettes are. They’re compact enough that traveling with them would be a breeze and they also come with a big mirror which is always a plus. There are 9 shadows in each palette. They are all highly metallic and extremely pigmented!

As you can see the pigmentation is just out of this world. I did not use a primer – they are applied completely dry. You can even amp up the pigmentation by applying these colors wet, even though you don’t even have to. I am so impressed with the quality of these baked shadow palettes. They honestly look like pressed pigments and for the price it’s a complete steal. If you’re in the market for some intensely pigmented metallic shadows, definitely pick these up.

The Smokey Eye Revisited

Hello beauties!

I am a huge fan of the smokey eye. It never gets old and is perfect for a formal event or a casual day out and about. It has the right amount of drama and style to keep every girl feeling fierce.

Here is how I rock the smokey eye!

  1. First I prime my eyelids.
  2. Next I choose a light shade from the Forever Smokey Palette such as the beige and apply this to eyelids with a blending brush.
  3. After this I apply one of the grey shades from the palette to the outer corners of my eyes with a smudge brush.
  4. For the final step I add a coat of eyeliner to my upper and lower lash lines and finish the look with a few swipes of mascara. Sometimes I pop on a pair of false eyelashes to add some playfulness to the look.

Need to see the smokey eye in action? Here are a few of my favorite smokey eye inspirations:

Kim Kardashian- Kim is famous for her smokey eye. She always wears the style on the red carpet and looks fabulous doing it! 1227-01-Kim-Kardashaian-smoky-eye-makeup_li

 

Mila Kunis- Mila sports the smokey eye regularly as well and always looks amazing.mila-kunis-435

 

Taylor Swift- Taylor has embraced the smokey eye in recent years for a more mature look and looks great with it.taylor swift

 

While greys, blacks and browns work well for the smokey, don’t be afraid to add a little bit of color from time to time and incorporate a deep blue or purple.

How to Get the Coveted Perfect Neutral Eye Look

Colorful looks are fun to create and pretty to look at for makeup inspiration. There are makeup artists who are so talented we can’t help but call their work “art.” However most of us go to school orwork and have to tone down on the makeup that’s appropriate for the setting… and is big reason why neutral eyeshadows are so sought after.

Balm Stick: A Must-Have for Any Beauty Lover

Hi BH beauties!

We are in the heart of winter, and as you know the cold weather can take a toll on our skin and lips. There is nothing worse than the dryness that impacts our beauty routine during this time of the year. Moisturizer is a must for keeping skin in top shape, and don’t forget about taking care of your lips.

While I love my gorgeous glosses and lipsticks, they do not keep me as moisturized as balms do. The balm stick Lip Balm Stickis the perfect beauty product for keeping your pout protected and it adds some color to your face. There are two ways I recommend wearing this:

Layering- Wear the balm stick as a layer underneath your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Just make sure to stay in the same color family or to wear a neutral color.

Solo- Feel like giving your favorite lipstick or lip gloss a break? You can wear balm stick by itself for the perfect hint of color and shine.

Finish off either look by adding a swipe of eyeliner, shadow and mascara to eyes and you are ready to roll. How do you wear balm stick? Share your style with us on Instagram by using #bhcosmetics.

Stay warm dolls!

Xoxo,

Jessica

How to Get Your “Glow” On in the Midst of Winter

What’s the best kept secret to slimmer defined facial features and that healthy looking glow you see on movie stars? The answer is simple and taking over the beauty industry: contouring and highlighting.

Watch as Cambria uses the Forever Nude Sculpt & Glow Contouring Kit to sculpt, define, and enhance your features for a natural and flawless look.

We would recommend the Light/Medium kit for gals with light to medium complexions and our Medium/Deep kit for ladies with medium/tan to darker skin tones.

Our Forever Nude Sculpt & Glow Contouring Kit can be purchased for $11.95 here: http://bit.ly/1ymtAnd

Celebrate January’s Birthstone: The Garnet

Happy birthday January babes!

As a girl with a January birthday, you get to celebrate being first in the year and making a fresh start. What better way to make a statement then with the reds of the garnet? This gem comes in a variety of shades, but the color red is the most prominent. This color is both confident and attention getting which is perfect for all of our birthday girls.

 

Garnet.

Lips- The best way to wear red is on the lips. It will draw attention to your beautiful smile. Try one of our matte lipsticks in a shade like Dark Rose for a deep red hue.

Eyes- When wearing a bright lip, keep eyes neutral for a balanced look. I recommend lining them with a simple brown shade and adding a bronze color to lids. The Wild Child Baked Palette has the perfect blend of light beiges and bronzes that are subtle and flattering to every color of eyes. Add a swipe of mascara and you are ready to go.

Looking for another way to celebrate this month? Add a coat of red to your nails. This is a fun way to incorporate the beautiful garnet into your look.

Here is to another year of being gorgeous. What is your go-to for embracing shades of the garnet? Make sure to share it with us on Instagram and use #bhcosmetics.

Happy birthday beauties!

Makeup Trends for 2015

Hi BH Beauties,

It is a new year and a time for starting fresh. One of my favorite things about the new year is the chance to switch up my style. Here are a few beauty trends that I recommend trying for a new look in 2015:

Color- Color is a must for 2015. This can be worn anywhere and everywhere. I recommend wearing a beautiful blue or purple on eyes for a bright and fun pop of color. Our Party Girl After Hours Palette has a great mix of gorgeous blues and purples to keep your eyes looking dazzling.

If you prefer to play up lips instead of eyes, try a bright pink or red shade. This adds color to your pout during the dull winter days. Our Party Girl Twist Stick will keep your lips moisturized and add pigment to your face.

Full Brows- Full brows are a hot item for this year. If you have not yet sported this look, give it a try. The maintenance is easy and the final look is flawless. Our Flawless Brow Trio is the perfect kit for getting started and adds definition and shape.

Eyeliner- Eyeliner is a must for every beauty lover and a hot trend for 2015. While the smokey eye and cat eye never disappoint, there is another way to wear this trend. Use a liquid liner and line eyes the whole way around to make a dramatic and bold statement.

What makeup looks will you be trying this year? Make sure to share your favorite styles with us on Instagram and use #bhcosmetics.

“Get The Look” – 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards

The red carpet was lively with head-to-toe glam for the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Seeing so many beautiful looks at one event, made it difficult to choose our favorites! Here are the top 3 looks that caught our eyes and our tips to achieving these look using BH Cosmetics products.

Lupita Nyong’o 

lupita1

Lupita Nyong’o is absolutely glowing in this winter berry look that has her lids painted with a gorgeous shade of purple and her lips finished perfectly with a glossy pop of red.

Get the Look: Start by getting a glowing complexion with our “Forever Nude Sculpt & Glow Contouring Kit.” To shape contours and add illuminating highlights to your face add these powders to focus areas like the apples of the cheeks and brow bones. Next sweep the gorgeous purple and fuchsia shades from our “Wild At Heart Baked Eyeshadow Palette” to create that pop of color on the eyes and finish off the lips with a swipe of “bh Party Girl Twist Moisturizing Balm Stick” in Masquerade for a glossy, berry pout.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez did not disappoint as the queen of smokey eyes. She wore a sexy and sultry eye that sizzled with gunmetal glam!

Get the Look: Jennifer’s bronzey, glowing complexion can be achieved by buffing the face with BH’s “Bombshell Bronze” Bronzing Powder in Siren. Sweep the rich gunmetal shade from the “Forever Smokey Makeup Palette” all over your eyelids and smudge the lash lines with a “Party Girl Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil” in After Hours. Finally, you can balance the look with the nude lip color included in the “Forever Smokey Makeup Palette.”

Gina Rodriquez 

gina

 

The key to achieving Gina Rodriquez’s stunning nude look is to focus on complexion perfection.

Get the Look: Start your beauty routine by priming your face and eyes with the “BH Studio Pro Foundation Primer” and “BH Studio Pro Waterproof Eye Primer.” Next, perfect the skin with the “Foundation & Concealer Palette” that gives you 10 shade options for flawless coverage; don’t forget to blend, blend, blend!  Softly, shade the eyes and define the lash line with a classic slim cat eye using a “BH Liquid Eyeliner.” Less is more, when it comes to nude lips, so choose a color that is 1-2 shades paler than your natural lip shade. We like pairing the “Crème Luxe Lipstick” in Forever Nude with the “Waterproof Lip Liner” in Earth to achieve the shade that Gina is wearing.

Make sure to share your Golden Globe looks! We can’t wait to see them!
