Behind the Palette: Nude Rose

1_NUDEROSE_HEADERMeet our must-have nude palette—and see what makes it so special! Soft, chic, a little bit sultry: Our brand-new Nude Rose Palette lets you create the perfect look for any occasion. Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at what inspired us!

2_NUDEROSE_INSPIRATION

We took our inspiration from just about everywhere! We’re in sunny southern California, which means that vibrant sunsets and golden hues are always on our minds. And we’re loving chic florals for fall—so we headed to the flower market and sought out shades inspired by our favorite blooms, then added deep complementary hues for day-to-night versatility. We were even inspired by texture: Each shade is as soft as it looks, so you can blend and highlight effortlessly.

3_NUDEROSE_PALETTE

The final result: Our chicest palette yet. In addition to the essential neutral hues and petal-soft texture, we added tons of luxe details—like a professional-quality dual-sided soft eyeshadow brush/smudge brush that puts tons of looks at your fingertips. We even included an easy step-by-step guide to the perfect day and night look. Last but not least, we finished it off with a custom-molded metal case and full-sized mirror. In short, it’s gorgeous!

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.

Party Girl Twist Stick

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!
