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!

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.

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.

“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!

 

New Year’s Makeup

Hi BH Beauties,

I can’t believe 2014 is coming to a close already. It’s time to celebrate as we ring in another fabulous year. Break out the party dress and get the camera ready for a night to remember! We have your makeup covered for every special event.

For Dinner

What better way to ring in the new year then by going to a nice dinner with friends? This is the time to get decked out in your finest and enjoy one another’s company. I recommend keeping dinner makeup simple and wearing a shimmery gold eyeshadow from our Wild Child Baked Eyeshadow Palette. The sparkle will add some festivity to your look. Make sure to compliment
eyes with a swipe of gold shimmery gloss in the shade Up All Night.

For Dancing

Dancing the night away is a great time, but making sure my makeup stays in place is always in the back of my mind. To keep skin looking flawless layer on a primer to your face and eyes. This will assure makeup stays put no matter how much fun you are having on the dance floor. To make eyes stand out under the lights, I recommend sporting a pair of false eyelashes. This will give you volume and length to stay looking gorgeous all night.

For a Parade

If you are going out and about to a parade or to see the ball drop make sure to bundle up. I recommend keeping eye makeup simple for this casual event and just layering on a coat of black eyeliner with some mascara. It is important to keep lips moisturized in the cold as well, so apply one of our matte lipstick colors to add style and moisture to your pout.

What are your go-to styles for New Year’s Eve? Make sure to share them with us on Instagram and use #bhcosmetics.

Here is to a happy and healthy New Year loves!

Christmas Makeup Inspiration

Hi BH Beauties,

The holidays are here, and now is the time to play around with fun makeup looks. Get in the spirit by trying out a red or green cosmetic to match the festivities of the season.  Here are a few recommendations for getting into the holiday spirit.Christmas Makeup

Eyes- There is nothing like a little bit of sparkle and shadow for eyes. Try using a green shadow in honor of the Christmas tree. The Party Girl Palette has multiple shades of green to achieve this look. These shadows can be worn as one shade or layered to create a dimensional effect.

Feeling adventurous? Add some sparkle to eyes with one of the shades from our Glitter Collection. I recommend trying the Deep Red or Pearl. Both are perfect for the holidays and can be dusted over eyeshadow for a fun shimmer.

Lips- It would not be Christmas without a chance to sport red lips. Our matte lipstick has you covered for all Christmas festivities whether it is an office party or family get together. If you are looking for a deep red shade this season I recommend trying Dark Rose.

Face- When rocking bright eyes and bold lips, keep other face makeup neutral. Apply a coat of pressed powder to add some color to skin and finish it off with a light layer of bronzer.

Have you been naughty or nice this year? Remember to ask Santa for some BH makeup goodies and share your presents with us on Instagram using #bhcosmetics. Merry Christmas!

Celebrate December’s Birthstone Tanzanite

Happy birthday December babes!

While December may be the last month of the year, we did not forget about the importance of celebrating all of our beauties who turn another year gorgeous! The December birthstone is the tanzanite and has a beautiful deep blue shade that looks pretty no matter what it is paired with. Here are a few tips to maximize the blue of this hue.December Birthstone

Celebrate the birthday fun on your eyes and wear a shade of blue eyeshadow. I recommend choosing a color from the 88 Color Cool Matte Eyeshadow Palette. This palette has lots of different blues to embody the brilliance of the tanzanite. Add a layer of glitter for some birthday and holiday sparkle. The Dusty Blue keeps with the blue theme and adds some style. Swipe a coat of mascara on lashes and you are ready to roll.

88 Color Cool Matte Eyeshadow Palette

88 Color Cool Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Keep face and lip makeup simple so all attention is placed on your sparkling eyes. I recommend sporting some powder, dusting blush on cheeks and applying a neutral gloss.

December is such a special birthday month because December babes get to celebrate their birthday, Christmas and New Year’s within a few weeks of one another. What is your go to for birthday makeup tanzanite beauties? Share your looks with us on Instagram and use #bhcosmetics.

In honor of our matte lipstick, here are a few of our favorite ways to wear this gem:

Red- Kim Kardashian knows how to rock just about anything, and a matte lip is part of this. In her look she keeps other face makeup simple to balance the deep and bright color of her lips. When wearing a bold shade such as red, keep shadow neutral and play up lashes.

Pink- Emma Stone is the perfect example of how to wear a gorgeous pink matte lip shade. The bright pink looks youthful and matches her playful makeup look. Because this shade is not as bold as red, pair it with fun eye makeup like the cat eye.

Purple- Solange Knowles knows how to wear purple lipstick. She is a pro at taking this color and making it stylish. To keep makeup classy like this lip color, stick to a neutral shimmer shade for eyes. This adds brightness and compliments the beautiful shade.
