Summer Style On The Move

Whether I’m packing for a trip or planning out a jam-packed day, choosing versatile clothes and accessories allows me to enjoy the journey rather than worry about having extra things on hand to change into. I like to keep things as low maintenance as possible. To me that means packing less by wearing styles that can fit into any scenario — while being fashion forward and comfortable, of course.

Besides my sunscreen, which I never leave the house without no matter the time of year, here is a list of my double duty must haves that will take you from the beach, to brunch, out to dinner, and back again! Continue Reading

Confidence Challenge Featuring Kylie Rose

Having healthy self-esteem is something most of us have to work on constantly. Nobody feels 100% fantastic about themselves all the time, I’m pretty sure. There’s plenty of propaganda out there to make us feel like we can improve in some way, and it’s always in our face. Magazines, movies, television and especially social media can make us feel as if we should have a better body, more money in the bank, a smoother complexion, a cooler wardrobe, a more exciting social life… you get the idea.

Learning to accept myself and find happiness within wasn’t the easiest thing to achieve when I was a teenager. I can only imagine how much harder it must be today with the constant pressures that stem from social media. I can’t say what it’s like to be a teen today, but 13-year-old Kylie Rose sure can.

Kylie is a beautifully honest young lady on a mission to inspire others. In her YouTube video, Kylie eloquently discusses the challenges of finding self acceptance and self love in a world of selfies. Despite our age difference, Kylie’s wisdom and honesty moved me — and I hope it will move you, too. Continue Reading

Ask Jules: Beauty Edition Part 2

Having a clear complexion is more than merely a surface situation. I know when I have a monster blemish I tend to be more standoff-ish and a little less confident. I can’t help but wonder when talking to someone, “Are they looking at me, or are they looking at my pimple?!”

Feeling good about my skin and appearance gives me an added sense of security. Like so many of you, I have tried endless amounts of products and treatments. The fact is, we all have different chemistry; it’s not a one-potion-fixes-all situation.

Sometimes in tougher cases it’s better to have a professional guide us in the right direction. The same can be said about make-up application. It’s not always about having the perfect red lip. Some of us weren’t blessed with a full brow and by filling it in, we feel like the better version of us. I say, whatever it takes to help you feel stronger, more confident and happier is what you should seek!

Dear Julianne,

First of all you are my role model and I am so glad you started your website.  I read something new on it everyday and it always inspires me.  Anyways, my face has been looking really dry, and yours just looks amazing. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on getting a smoother softer face?  If you have any, I am dying to know! 

Thank you so much!

Much Love,

How To Get Wide Awake Eyes With Spencer Barnes

Hello! I’m Spencer Barnes and I have been doing Jules’ makeup for over eight years now. We first met on a shoot for a Juicy Fruit commercial. I was pretty much smitten by her infectiously radiant and upbeat personality.

Since then, we have shared many amazing adventures together. I have been able to watch her incredible career continue to evolve and develop up close & personal. Quite simply, Julianne is one of my favorite people on the planet. One of the things I love most about Jules is her sunny disposition and bright-eyed optimism for life, living and friends. She truly is pure sunshine and has a golden heart.

Speaking of Jules, she tells me that some of you have inquired how to achieve that sunny “wide awake eyes” look. Here are some of my favorite tips and techniques: Continue Reading

Nail Color Trends For Spring

Like fashion, winter manicure colors are all about warmth. During the colder months I’ll sport a deep, dark red or an edgy, sharp black, but now that we are heading into a fresh and bright spring season, I am ready to switch things up. New York Fashion Week is obviously the indicator for fashion trends, but it’s also the best place to check out makeup and nail trends for the coming seasons. Continue Reading

Green With Eye Envy

Happy first of March! With spring well on its way and shamrock decor about to take over, this month is all about one color: green. The happy hue reminds me of all things fresh and bright, two things I strive to incorporate into my everyday. One way to celebrate the luck of the Irish and their signature grassy shade is to go green… on your eyes!

When I apply a colored eye shadow, I steer clear of going lid to brow. Especially in this case, where it would appear as if I’m growing a lawn over my eyes. Instead, I choose a neutral shade that matches my skin tone to accompany and balance out the stronger shade.

I’ve learned, to keep heavily pigmented colors from falling onto your face during application, causing crazy color cheeks (yikes), apply your eye make up before foundation. Post eye-make up, clear any debris using a cotton swab with toner. Continue Reading

Face Off: The Pantone Colors of the Year

Every year the color experts at Pantone name a color that will serve as the “it” trend in fashion, home décor, beauty and beyond in the seasons to come. This year for the first time two shades were chosen: rose quartz and serenity.

According to Pantone, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

Whether you’re a trend follower or not, it’s still fun to seek out these colors especially when they evoke words like “calm” and “relaxation.”

I got pretty inspired while searching through some of my favorite products for shades of rose quartz and serenity. I always forget about blue mascara! It’s a subtle way to add a simple, surprising pop to your look. The same for light bubble gum pink lips.

Artist Eye Shadow $21 | Dandelion Box O’ Powder Blush $28 | They’re Real! Mascara $24 | Nars Nail Polish $20 | Laura Mercier Lip Glace $24 | Color of the Year Matte Lipstick $23 | Butter London Nail Lacquer $15
