Trends Spotted at the Billboard Music Awards

The Billboard Music Awards are always fun to watch, not just for the artists performing, but for the edgy fashion and beauty trends seen on the red carpet. Celebrities seem to take more liberties with their style and the atmosphere is a lot more casual, which can lead to some interesting choices in hair and makeup. Here's what we loved about the red carpet beauty trends.

Edgy hair color: Both Ke$ha and Kylie Jenner rocked pink and turquoise hair, respectively. Ke$ha's hair was dyed entirely, while Kylie rocked dipped turquoise tips, which looked really fun with her long bob. If you've been wanting to experiment with fun colors, Jerome Russell has Punky Colors, which deposits temporary color while conditioning hair. Of course, this product works best on bleached hair, but you can even use it on dark hair to create some fun highlights. Or, if you're really feeling brave, call your local Planet Beauty and see if any of the stylists specialize in funky colors. You can always try a few peek-a-boo highlights and take it from there. 

Happy 20th Anniversary, Jane!

On April 29th, Planet Beauty celebrated Jane Iredale's 20th anniversary of her cosmetic line by hosting an event at the Newport Beach location. Over 30 guests were in attendance, including an editor from the LA Times, makeup artist/stylist and blogger Anada McAdams, natural living blogger Sam from meredone.com, and best-selling author Sophie Uliano, best known for her Gorgeously Green series. 

Everyone in attendance was given a presentation by Jane Iredale herself, who shared a glimpse behind her cosmetic brand, her driving inspiration for the last 20 years and newest collection for spring 2014, The Magic Hour. The collection has already inspired so many gorgeous, transitional looks with its natural eye colors and fresh lip shades. 

Guests were then given complimentary mini makeovers by Planet Beauty's own Makeup Artist Team, led by Samantha Schmidt. Application tips and techniques were shared with guests, while they received a little pampering. Cupcakes and champagne cocktails were served throughout the night, which added to the celebratory ambiance of the event. All attendees received a deluxe gift bag for attending the event and everyone was given a meet-and-greet photo opportunity with Jane Iredale. 

It was an honor for Planet Beauty to help celebrate such a milestone event with Jane Iredale and is so grateful for being able to share that opportunity with such loyal fans. 


Met Gala 2014 Inspiration

Every year, the Met Gala delivers with high fashion, gorgeous beauty trends and artful inspiration that makes all of us want to be a little more fierce and fabulous. From classic ball gowns to modern short dresses, A-List celebrities make their mark on the red carpet, taking risks and going bold. This year, I was particularly surprised with some of our favorite younger actresses rocking the red carpet in a seamless fashion. Blake Lively, Hailee Steinfeld and Emma Stone all brought a different look to the Gala and each was a winner in their own right. 

Blake Lively

Why we loved her look: No matter what role she's playing on screen, she sure knows how to rock the vintage Hollywood glam look. From her sexy, vintage waves to her natural makeup and heart-stopping dress, it was hard to take your eyes off her.

More than Makeup Products

We are always in search of that amazing product that does more than its basic job. We love beauty products with multiple purposes, and having added benefits can really make a difference in our beauty routine. Aside from the instant gratification we get from makeup, we crave products that are going to help maintain our natural beauty, as well. If it's time to change things up in your makeup bag, check out these high-performance Planet Beauty favorites. 

Peter Thomas Roth-Lashes to Die For Mascara 

This top-selling mascara delivers on all levels. Formulated with conditioning ingredients like Aloe Vera and Macadamia Nut Oil, lashes get a dose of moisture with every use. Vitamins A, C and E help rid harmful free radicals while Pro Vitamin B5 goes to work for your lashes, strengthening and keeping them healthy and beautiful. At only $22, this mascara is a steal.

Radiant Orchid Inspiration!

Radiant Orchid is Pantone's Color of the Year for 2014 and Planet Beauty is here to help you find your purple-hued inspiration! If you haven't experimented with a new color lately, I invite you to embrace change and try something fresh just in time for Easter! 

Butter London recently paid homage to Radiant Orchid with it's gorgeous Molly Coddled Nail Laquer. This color looks completely gorgeous on any skin tone, and can even be used to create fun Easter-inspired manicures. OPI's Do You Lilac It and Lucky Lucky Lavender are also two customer favorites that are sure to sell out quickly. If you're feeling like trying a deeper shade of purple, then Ciate's Cabaret is the perfect polish for you. Plus, who can resist their adorable paint pots? If you're interested in sharing this trend with friends, consider Ciate the perfect gift from the Easter bunny!


Valentine's Day for all!

Whether you're painting the town red with your girlfriends this Friday, going on a romantic date with your honey or embracing your singleness at home, Planet Beauty is your Valentine's Day headquarters! 

If you're ready to bring out your inner vixen with your girls, you're going to need an arsenal of red. Proven to be the color of attraction, sporting red will give you the confidence of Beyoncé on that dance floor. For long lasting lip color, I suggest starting off with Too Faced's Perfect Red lip liner. Its name seems too good to be true, but trust me, it will perfectly blend with most red lipstick shades and is also smudge-proof. Smashbox's Infared Matte lipstick makes a killer combo that will have all the guys looking your way. If you're on the ombré lip train right now, try outlining your lips with Smashbox's Dark Nude lip liner, instead. Every vixen needs a go-to red nail polish. Some of our favorites include: OPI's The Thrill of Brazil, Butter London's Come to Bed Red and Essie's Forever Young. To finish off your look, go faux with your lashes, but not your personality. Eyelure has some beautiful lashes to choose from that come with built-in eyeliner that will make your eyes pop from across the room. 

PB <3s JDRF!

There is nothing more beautiful than giving back, which is why Planet Beauty annually partners with a charitable organization to raise awareness for a cause.  On December 5th, Planet Beauty teamed up with JDRF, an organization that’s fighting to end Type One diabetes, to host a fundraiser to benefit the organization.  Twenty percent of the events sales went to JDRF, and helps take them one step closer to achieving their goal of ending juvenile diabetes. charity event rffle basket 300x200 Give Back with PB and JDRF!

The Planet Beauty Buffs pulled out all the stops, offering makeovers, deluxe services from our favorite vendors, snacks and beverages, and even a few of our favorite beauty bloggers to share their insight on products and beauty! This year, we even had a chocolate tasting from Godiva—beauty and chocolate, who could ask for anything more! All in all, the Buffs and 300 of our guests raised over $7,500 to donate to JDRF in the fight against Type One Diabetes.
