Red Carpet Rainbow: Color Trends from the 2015 SAG Awards

Red Carpet Rainbow: Color Trends from the 2015 SAG Awards

Beauty abounded at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards last night. But it shouldn't be surprising, given our line of work, that the fashion trend that excited us most was the generous display of vibrant color! Every shade of the rainbow was represented on the red carpet, reminding us that spring is on the way, and providing plenty of inspiration for future outfits and manicures while they were at it. These ladies proved that a place on the "best dressed" list can be achieved in any color of the spectrum:... Read More

10 Ways to Do Your Own Wedding Hair

10 Ways to Do Your Own Wedding Hair

The color of the napkins, the shape of the chairs, whether the envelopes have liners or not... there are just certain wedding details that really aren't worth the worry. At least, that's what I keep telling myself, as my wedding planning has (slowly) progressed. Personalized cocktail stirrers sure would be cute, but would anyone even notice them? But one wedding detail I won't be under-thinking? My hair. Besides the dress, your hair is a huge part of bringing your whole bridal look together. And... Read More

The Product That’s Totally Saving My Skin This Winter

The Product That’s Totally Saving My Skin This Winter

Everyone needs their beauty sleep---and I happen to be one of those people who needs a lot of it. We're talkin' at LEAST seven hours a night, or any number of unpleasant emotions (grumpiness, confusion, insatiable hunger, unexplained weeping) may surface throughout the next day. When it comes to keeping myself sane---a job that's really never fully finished---good ol' fashioned zzzz's are MY secret sauce. (That, and the occasional pre-bed cheese snack.) Me, 9pm, every day. But recently, I've come... Read More

Here are the six stunning stars' whose... Read More

Liquid Gold: The Many, Glorious Beauty Uses for Argan Oil

Liquid Gold: The Many, Glorious Beauty Uses for Argan Oil

I recently received my January Maven box... HOORAY! I customized to get the Sheer Magenta Luxe Lip Treatment (love that cooling tip, y'all), Alicia (Boho Glam) and Shelly (It Girl). And to that group of gorgeous gifts-to-myself, I also added on a bottle of Elixir Organic Argan Oil. I love using Elixir on my wavy-wonky, frizz-prone hair. I usually work it through the ends after I shower to battle frizz as I let my hair air dry. But, with winter's weather waging an all-out assault on my skin and nails,... Read More

Our Beauty Resolutions for 2015

Our Beauty Resolutions for 2015

It's goal setting time. To kick off the new year, I asked each of my fellow Julep blog contributors to make a beauty- or fashion-themed resolution for 2015. The resolution could be serious or silly; large or small; that was their call. But it had to be something tangible and achievable in the short-term; a habit that they could work on making, or breaking, during the month of January. (Because don't we all have at least one of those? Off the top of my head, I can think of about 7 or 8 habits I could... Read More

Natural, Boho, or Retro: Which Bridal Beauty Style Should I Choose?

Natural, Boho, or Retro: Which Bridal Beauty Style Should I Choose?

So, I'm engaged. And as anyone who’s been in this place before me knows, wedding planning isn’t always glamorous. Usually, it's the opposite of glamorous, alternating between overwhelming (so many choices!) and terrifying (so much money!) … and there are a lot of spreadsheets involved. But there is one aspect of wedding planning that I unabashedly love, and that IS totally glamorous (at least in my head): looking at bridal beauty and hair inspiration. I call it “research,” for when my turn... Read More
