Currently Crushing On: Fall Vibes

Currently Crushing On: Fall Vibes

Time for another enchanting journey into the Insta-lives of our Mavens! Last time, I shared some of my favorite chevron nail art that I've seen you sporting lately. Today I'm reveling in the rich hues and laid-back moods of autumn---and judging from our Instagram, you ladies are, too! Here's just a sampling of the cozy fall vibes emanating from our feed: It wouldn't be the holidays without that iconic red cup, or deliciously dark nails. Allie's rocking Nic (Bombshell).   Colors of nature, meet... Read More

Out of This World: Orbital Eyeshadow in Action

Out of This World: Orbital Eyeshadow in Action

True story: When we had show-and-tell for our new Orbital Eyeshadows a few months ago, the initial response was a chorus of oooo's. That wouldn't stop. Seriously. Slap some auto-tune on our conference room and we were basically The Pussycat Dolls. But our reaction was understandable. Just look at them: They sparkle. They shine. They are bursting with color. It was love at first swatch. These shadows are just. so. cool. Each shade is injected with three layers of pigment for a mix of metallic shimmer,... Read More

Hat Tricks: How to Wear a Beanie Without Getting Hat Head

Hat Tricks: How to Wear a Beanie Without Getting Hat Head

Brrrr! I don't know about where you live, but here in Seattle, it's been c-c-c-c-coooold this week. And you know what that means: we're officially in beanie weather. No, not THOSE kind of beanies. THESE kind of beanies! (Admittedly, not quite as cute. But just as soft and collectible.) I love me a great beanie (fun fact: I received five last Christmas from different people) and not just for their ear-warming factor. Beanies are a great way to show off some fun fashion sense or a pop of color when... Read More

Holiday-Ready Beauty & Detox Starring Turmeric

Holiday-Ready Beauty & Detox Starring Turmeric

Turmeric. With its rich history of uses inside, outside, on, around, and through the body, I've been thinking the tales of this blemish-blasting, scar-erasing, acne-curing, skin-brightening superspice might be worth looking into. Plus, turmeric is delicious (helloooo curry), with digestive and immunity detox powers rivaling any herb or spice (or magician) on the planet. So, since the Thanksgiving stuffing (and I do mean stuffing) is imminent, with another month of hedonism right on its tail, I'm... Read More

Mixing Mascaras: The Best Beauty Trick You’re Probably Not Doing

Mixing Mascaras: The Best Beauty Trick You’re Probably Not Doing

Mascara. I've heard it called a go-to, a must-have, a one-and-only. It's the Holy Grail of makeup. If a woman is going to pick just one product to put on her face, it's mascara. Stranded on a desert island? Mostly likely you managed to stash a tube of your favorite formula as the plane was going down. Even in our world of #BeautyWithoutRules, you'll be hard pressed to find a lady at Julep HQ who willingly skipped doing her lashes for a day. So we—womankind—should all be experts at applying it,...

Makeup for Make Believe

Makeup for Make Believe

It's that time of year again. The time where we go through our closets to find threads that are no longer relevant so that we might cut them up, tie them off, and splatter them in fake blood. And on our faces? Our dry, or sensitive, or oil-prone faces? The market for Halloween makeup is downright dreadful. Well, we just won't stand for it. We gathered some of our fave products, and put our minds to work on how we can use them in ways they weren't necessarily intended. NO RULES, right? Read on! LOOK... Read More

Julep Staff Picks: What ‘Beauty Without Rules’ Means to Us

"Beauty Without Rules means being 100% yourself. It means to embrace the fact that you are an individual and that there is absolutely no one else in the world who is exactly like you. It means to fully express yourself in the way you think and act, despite what everyone else is doing!" - Sabrina "It means forgetting what you’ve been told and just enjoying the process of finding what works for you... even if that means making mistakes." - Ariana "It means still shopping in the juniors section even...
