If first impressions mean anything, then the Lancôme Grandiose Mascara exudes class, luxury and performance. The packaging took my breath away with its genie-like bottle and crystallized top with that rose design embedded in the middle.

As I took the wand out of the tube, I couldn’t believe my eyes! A swan-like neck that was three years in the making. Why a swan neck you ask? This wand is meant to hug the contours of the lashes. And it does just that. I will admit at first it was a little tricky to use; I wouldn’t recommend this mascara if you plan on applying it paying at a toll and putting on lipstick.

This mascara is meant to be put on when you have time to pamper every lash and make sure it gets coated with a superb formula. This particular formula is extra glossy and black, made with less waxes for maximum impact. Another point of difference with this mascara is that it is made with rose cell extract for that extra touch of glamour and nourishment. If you want to pamper your lashes and let your eyes do the talking, then go out and treat yourself to this beautiful mascara.

3 Best Tips To Choose The Right Brunette Shade For Your Skintone, Maintain HairColor, Highlights, Lowlights

3 Best Tips To Choose The Right Brunette Shade For Your Skintone, Maintain HairColor, Highlights, Lowlights

If you think brunettes are plain, you’re plainly mistaken. Blondes may be known to have fun, but brunettes are spicy and mysteries. There’s more to brunettes than meets the eye. So, in order to maintain multidimensional color with ease (brunettes tend to absorb more light, leading to dull, monotone color) use the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Colour Protecting Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner — the innovative duo with crushed pearls and sweet almond oil that counteracts fading right in the shower. Use with the John Freida collection arsenal of brunette-tailored products to keep your brunette dazzling.

3 Best Tips To Choose The Right Brunette Shade For Your Skintone, Maintain HairColor, Highlights, Lowlights

John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh gave us some tips to help brunettes grab the spotlight with these flashes of brilliance:

Choosing a Brunette Shade

Find a brunette color that will suit your look by determining whether you should opt for a shade in the cool or warm brown family, depending on your skintone.

Bronde Between Blonde & Brunette – How To Lighten And Darken Your Hair For Light, Medium And Dark Skintones

Lowlights or Highlights

Choose skinny highlights 1 or 2 shades lighter than your natural color to add subtle contrast but still let your luminous brunette shine through. Balance out your eye-catching brunette with lowlights in red tones and copper-gold blends about 2 shades darker than your natural color to add richness and dimension.

How To Wear Chalk Color, Balayage, Rose Gold Redhead, Icy Blonde, Cappuccino Brunette Shades

Maintenance

Have your hair cut every 6-8 weeks to eliminate split ends, helping it look shinier and more brilliant overall. Also keep your brunette color looking salon quality using a care regimen created just for your color’s specific needs. My favorite is the John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss and Precision Foam Colour Intense After-Colour Conditioner.

8 Best Tips To Position Yourself For Future Success In The Beauty, Fashion, Creative Industries – 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary, Career, Job Market Trend Report

8 Best Tips To Position Yourself For Future Success In The Beauty, Fashion, Creative Industries - 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary, Career, Job Market Trend Report

All this back-to-school talk has us feeling very studious and interested in what’s going on in our wonderful beauty world. Back in July, we were invited to the 2nd Annual CEW 2014 Beauty Salary & Job Market Report, giving us a sense how executives, managers and staffers are compensated and the general mood in the job market. Guest speakers included Lisa Marie Ringus of 24 Seven Inc. and Sarah Willersdorf of The Boston Consulting Group who talked about current job market trends — in a survey that included over 800 beauty professionals — in the creative, beauty and fashion world, and what it takes to stand out from the rest.

The 20th Annual CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards And Iconic Beauty Award Winners

Basically, what’s trending is finding the absolute best talent out there, with those game-changing Millenials (ages 24-32) changing the whole workforce aesthetic. Every day, people put their best foot forward to showcase their skill sets with a can-do attitude and ripe resume. While in attendance, we came up with some key job market trends for you to keep in mind of for your next job search to land your dream job!

1. Join the CEW Beauty Career Center. Members can connect on a social level to find job postings, tools, information, mentors and the connections you need to take your career to the next level, or, discover the best talent for your organization.

2. Identify a good company. Even if your first or second job isn’t what you dreamed off, make sure to find a company with room for growth. Just because you start at a low-paying position doesn’t mean you won’t be able to move up the ranks. Even if you have to start out small, be assertive and open.

80% of talent were approached with a job opportunity last year

3. Companies are looking for game-changing talent. Creative companies are looking to grow their culture with individuals with an impressive and flexible skill set. More and more companies are working with their employees and are becoming open to the prospects of telecommuting and comp days to appease their employees’ busy lives.

4. Be accepting of temporary/contract work. Especially if you are starting your first entry level or are a recent graduate, there is always the chance for full-time employment if you work hard and meet those deadlines!

5. No typos on your resume! A resume is a first impression. So be detailed, concise and REVISE, REVISE, REVISE!

6. The rocket fuel of any company is the engaged employee. Companies want their employees to be happy at their jobs, and believe in their mission and vision. In order to recruit those “extra-milers”, companies rely on clear communication to establish trust and engage with their employees.

91% of people work for a company they want to work for

7. Reach out to anyone in the industry. LinkedIn is your friend. Word-of-mouth job searching is still a tried-and-true method of finding work. The more you network, the more doors open. Also make sure to connect with your friends and co-workers on social media, such as LinkedIn to always stay engaged. And when writing emails, remember to keep it short, sweet and don’t be afraid to follow up.

8. An employee’s self-worth. Salary is still a factor in regards to taking a job, but as more people are becoming integrated in their work (thanks, social media), there are additional components that keep them coming back to their desk each morning — a feeling of self-worth and recognition. This falls back into realm of feeling like you’re part of the attractive company community: that your needs and well-being are taken into consideration for the good of the team.

Review: Besame Cosmetics Creates Old Hollywood Retro Glam Makeup! Apricot Cream Rouge, Lipstick, Cake Mascara

Review: Besame Cosmetics Creates Old Hollywood Retro Glam Makeup! Apricot Cream Rouge, Lipstick, Cake Mascara
Everyone nowadays wants that Old Hollywood look. And it’s usually always achieved (or attempted at least) on the red carpet with fashion experts exhausting the phrase to describe a red lip or elongated cat-eye. The term bores me, mainly because no one has really nailed the Old Hollywood look (in my biased opinion), especially with modern day makeup. But if you ever really, and I mean really, want to create a vintage look with no time machine required, let me steer you towards Besame Cosmetics.

The Best Orange, Coral, Red & Tangerine Lipstick, Gloss Shades For Every Skintone – Old Hollywood Inspired

Developing cosmetics from lipsticks to rouge, this is THE brand that has all the sought-after pigments from the 1920’s (when bright raspberry rouge was muted with powder) to the 1950’s (where full, lined lip peaks were ravaging in red). Not only is the quality there, but so is the packaging (chrysanthemum motifs aplenty) and appeal (simply adorable and delicate). The brand understands the film industry’s fascination with the vintage aesthetic, and are usually on hand to provide the perfect colors and formulas for that authentic seal of approval, as seen in the movie The Artist and the Bonnie & Clyde mini series.

If you’re completely new to the vintage-inspired brand, then let’s take a look at some of the key items we’re obsessing over!

Review: Besame Cosmetics Creates Old Hollywood Retro Glam Makeup! Apricot Cream Rouge, Lipstick, Cake Mascara

What’s any old-timey look without some good old fashioned rouge — that deeply pigmented pot ‘o color that your grandma probably still uses way too much of (but you love her for it!). Apricot Cream Rouge is packaged in a stunning vintage reproduction tin, filled with a concentrated cream that give lips and cheeks a natural, weightless flush, and blends beautifully into any skintone. Apply the formula straight from the tin with your ring finger using light patting motions.

No more guessing how to create that Old Hollywood classic red lip. The Besame Red Lipstick is a true red with a cooler, blue-toned base for a brighter smile. The blunt tip was designed for an easy application, and the golden bullet case screams retro. You’ll achieve that semi-matte finish with full coverage in just one swipe. The creamy formula is enriched with squalene, vitamin C and aloe. These shades aren’t just representations, they’re the real deal in vintage color.

Smooth, matte complexions were all the rage back then. Besame Violet Brightening Powder is a translucent violet powder that brightens any skintone. The finely milled formula sets makeup beautifully, leaving a soft, matte finish and a subtle violet fragrance. Wear it alone, over foundation or around the eyes to instantly lighten dark circles.

1930′s look

To get those ultra-lush lashes so thick, no liner was needed, all the glamazons used cake mascara. Besame Cake Mascara beautifies lashes and brows by making them appear longer, darker, more luxuriant. To use, simply wet the spooley brush in the case, dip in the Black or Brown color and apply to lashes; you can even use it as liner for those cat-eyes!

So, if you’re ready to get that Old Hollywood look, get the real deal with products that pay homage to that glamorous era, where every woman could pull off red lipstick and complexions were as pristine and silk. www.besamecosmetics.com
