MARCH 24, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Top Three Spring
Makeup Trends

I am not talented when it comes to a makeup brush. Sure, I could take my time and learn via YouTube tutorials, magazine tips, and listening to my sister, who seems to naturally know how and what to apply for any occasion. The truth is, I am a bit impatient. I would rather sift through my Pinterest and blog reader to see talented makeup artists’ beautiful work, than trying (and trying, and trying, and trying) to replicate it myself. The good news is, I have rounded up a few of my favorite Spring makeup trends for you to try and I am sure master! It is all about being fun and bold this season!

Bold Liner!

Break out your liquid liner, and get bold with the color and the brush stroke!

Bright Lips!

Be fearless with your lip color and add the perfect pop to your outfit with bright reds and oranges, or playful pinks and pastels!

Neutral Browns!

The classic smoky eye will never be out, but neutrals and browns are having their own moment this Spring. Browns, creams, and golds work on any skin tone and are tame enough for the day and are able to be played up for night.

MARCH 23, 2015 BY BETH JONES Style Icon: Kate Bosworth

Recently I was watching a movie featuring this week’s style icon, Kate Bosworth. Her wardrobe was simple but stood out as chic and inspirational. I can’t help but think that Kate herself played a significant role in choosing what her character wore. Her own sense of style is a perfect combination of classic essential pieces combined in a way that feels effortless and captivating. She sticks to the basics like a great pair of skinnies, simple yet eye-catching dresses and shoes to covet. She then accents everything with blonde hair tousled to perfection. She’s making me re-think my crazy-eclectic taste and enticing me to simplify.

MARCH 17, 2015 BY JENNIFER BEILE Round Up: Fashion & Style Instagrams to Follow

I am obsessed with Instagram (shameless self-promotion plug: @jenniferbeile); isn’t everyone, though? I follow friends and family, of course, but my main use for it is style inspiration. Models, bloggers, street style accounts and fashion companies make up the majority of my feed. My “likes” are typically reserved for photos that I want to archive and reference later when I am in an outfit rut, out shopping or looking for remix inspiration. Like everyone, I get busy and fall behind on keeping up on the blogs I regularly read, but believe me, I am rarely behind on my
Instagram feed.

Here is a list of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow for style inspiration, broken down into a few of my favorite categories. If you’re not following the following, you should be.

Bloggers

Of course style bloggers top my list! It’s what they do!
