Kiss Me Now, Kiss Me Later!

When you’re a busy woman on the go, chances are, you’ve got a full calendar on your hands. Between juggling your job, family life and social life, there’s probably little time to update and freshen up your look from location to location. Sure, you could run home and re-do your makeup if you’re going from work to a first date, but that’s just extra time you can’t be bothered with. One of the quickest ways to transform your makeup look from day to night is by simply changing up your lipstick. One of the best things about wearing lipstick is that it can make such a strong statement with little effort. On days when you’re not feeling your best, lipstick always has a way of making you look put together.  

For a fresh-looking daytime look, a soft pink pout is the way to go. Smashbox's Cognac lipstick instantly enhances the natural color of the lip while adding a beautiful glossy finish. Notice how minimizing the amount of eyeshadow draws attention to Vanessa's gorgeous smile! This particular shade of lipstick. Cognac is also a great shade for an everyday professional look or that first date you've been looking forward to.

3rd Annual JDRF Charity Event

This Wednesday, Planet Beauty will be hosting its third annual JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Charity Event at our Newport Beach location. Guests in attendance will receive free makeovers, brow makeovers, skin consultations, as well as quick hairstyles and tips. Everyone who attends will also receive a complimentary gift bag valued at $40. Sips and snacks will be provided by Lime California Crisp and the Newport Wine Company for all to enjoy.

Twenty percent of all proceeds will go to JDRF, which will help continue to fund research efforts for healthcare management and a path toward a cure. As noted on the JDRF page, diabetes no longer affects only juveniles, therefore JDRF is committed to ALL people with type 1 diabetes. For anyone interested in supporting this important cause, two special girls will also be selling mistletoe to guests to support research to "kiss diabetes goodbye". Caroline Brewster and Katherine Hellmers, otherwise known as the Yule T1De Girls, will have little bags of mistletoe available for purchase.

In the spirit of the holidays, Planet Beauty is proud to take part in another wonderful event that will help continue to raise awareness in the community, as well as raise money for such an important cause.

Greens and blues need lovin' too

When it comes to color, I find that most women are pretty scared of greens and blues. I can relate, as it can be a little daunting to try some new eyeshadow colors. However, when done just right, blues and greens can look extremely beautiful and flattering, especially during summer. It's also important to find the right shades of blues and greens to play with. Here are some of my favorites to try this month.

Greens:

If you're looking for an earthy shade of green eyeshadow, you have to check out Bare Escentuals Ready Duo in The Winner Is. It's the perfect starter green shadow, with just the right amount of glimmer to make your eyes pop. jane iredale's eyeshadow trio in Azure comes with an earthy green, a playful turquoise and an eye-catching bronze to create an under-the-sea look. If you're looking for a green liner to try, Smashbox's Always Sharp 3D liner in Sea Foam is bright and perfect to wear alone for just a touch of color. 

If you want to stay subtle, I suggest a nude or light coral lip color for your lips and a soft bronzer for your cheeks. Check out Stila's Convertible Color in Gerbera.

Blues:
