Classy & Classic Jewelry: how to build the perfect jewelry collection

24 Aug

How to build the perfect jewelry collection.

Classic & Classy jewelry inspiration pieces every woman should have in her collection! I have a lot of jewelry pieces that pictured here, or that are very similar. . . Take a closer look at your jewelry collection. Is it time for an update? Get rid of broken or outdated accessories. Here are my rules: 1. Go for better quality, pieces that are real or look real. 2. Diamonds and pearls are always in style. Even CZ and fake pearls look great & it’s hard to tell the difference. 3. Wear simple pieces for daytime & statement pieces for night. 4. Delicate jewelry and simple studs look better than big fake pieces. 5. Buy pieces that work well together and can be mixed and matched. Here is a great article to give you more info and insight on how to build a better jewelry collection : http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/style/costume-jewelry-look-cheap.htm

Beauty Shopping

20 Jun

Here is where I mainly go to buy my beauty products:

Ulta

Where I buy a lot of my drugstore brand products, fragrances, my curling irons, and salon products such as nail polish and hair products. I buy them here. Because they have a points program with membership for anyone, frequently offer coupons, discounts, and sales. I also like them because they have drugstore brands and prestige cosmetics in one location. They also sometimes will give you free samples if you know to ask for them upon checkout.

Sephora

I don’t get a discount here, but I like some of the Sephora brand products, as well as some of the newer beauty products on the market. They will also take back any returns so if makeup breaks or isn’t the right color they accept your return easily.

Namies

12640 Riverside Drive, Valley Village, CA 91607

As a professional makeup artist I shop here for supplies for my makeup kit, and I get 20-40% off of the makeup brands that they carry. Anyone can go in this store, but you need proof that you are a makeup artist to get the discount. They also carry makeup forever products which I love, and I get 40% off of.

Cinema Secrets

4400 Riverside Drive  Burbank, CA 91505

(818) 846-0579

 This is where I buy beauty products for my kit as well as my favorite concealers and I love their brand of cream foundation.

Walmart
They have some of the best prices for the same things that you can get at the drugstores. I always stock up on the Banana Boat Summer Color Self-tanner in Deep Dark color at Walmart because it’s usually around only $6. I also buy my favorite mascara there the Loreal voluminous mascara.

Amazon.com
A great place to find beauty products for a lot cheaper, such as some of the bronzes/self tanners that I like to use. Just make sure you check the ratings and who you are buying from.

Beauty.com
A great way to buy beauty and drugstore brands that you are familiar with already. If you want to stock up, or avoid making a trip to the store for products you already love, this is a great way to online shop.

Saks Fifth Avenue

Has a few brands that the other beauty stores don’t, some of the higher end makeup lines like that I like including Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Kevyn Aucoin.

Where do you mainly shop for beauty products? Tell me what your favorites are, and where you buy them?

Love,

Sunset Blonde
