When the weather gets chilly, bright colors bring the cheer! Keep festive, whether it be wardrobe, accessories, or cookware. Holiday nail color by Sheswai Lacquer, available Evolue. Free of formaldehyde, dbp, and toluene. Color: Honeyfox. Every time I roast a chicken, I save the carcass. It sounds crass, it sounds gross, but it is both thrifty and delicious. I place bones and meat scraps in plastic freezer bags marked “Bones For Soup,” then I wait for laundry day. Soups and broths are perfect to make on laundry day because they take little effort and much time. The most important part of making chicken broth from scratch is to make sure you have roasted bones, drippings, and bits of meat. You can also just boil raw chicken in the water, but it will taste very bland unless you add bouillon or packaged chicken broth to the pot. Roasted bones. Stick with that. It’s reusing what you’d most likely throw away -- it cuts down on waste -- you can’t go wrong! (more…)
Most men are painfully uninformed on the art of beauty -- Luckily, Evolue Beauty is here to fix this eyesore of an issue. A woman can tell a lot from a glance at a man’s bathroom. For a woman to deem a man’s establishment worthy of a sleepover, certain benchmarks must be met. The discerning woman is less likely to return a man’s post-sleepover messages if his bathroom is unacceptable. So, what will impress the discerning woman? (more…)

With summer here, make sure that you change your beauty routine. What you used in winter aren't the most suitable and trend appropriate for summer! You can start off with some RMS Lip2Cheek, in Rose Marie's newest shade Demure which is a gorgeous soft pink with a hint of mauve. You can get the sweetest flush on your cheeks with the slightest touch of this amazing product. If you tend to get a hint of T-Zone shine in the summer (who doesn't), we suggest RMS Un-Powder, the most amazing translucent powder that leaves your skin feeling like silk while holding your makeup in place. Just like your skincare routine, please don't forget to change up your makeup routine! We've started to use Jane Iredale's Liquid Minerals as the foundation for our makeup routine. It provides moisture and a medium coverage to give you the perfect summer canvas for fun in the sun. And when you're in the sun, don't forget your SPF! We add a hint of Jane Iredale's PurePressed Minerals or her Powder-Me SPF if you're in the sun. Now let's move onto that amazing head of hair, Rare Elements released Marula Cocktail as their newest and life altering product. Its calms down any frizz and protects against sun damage. But be on the frugal side when applying, a little goes a long way, we suggest one pump! Speaking of hair, are you in need of a trim to get rid of those winter ends? Well then you're just in luck because Jin Bang is offering a special: your first trim is 1/2 off his regular prices! In a town like Beverly Hills, getting a high quality cut for a moderate price is unheard of. Visit JinBangHair.com for more information (it's a work in progress, just like everything else in the world) And when you're out on a hot summer night in your pretty little black dress, you will absolutely adore Prada Lab's 48 Hour Clay and Salt Deodorant. It won't leave a stain on your dress and is one of the latest addition's to the Prada Lab line- we can't get enough of it.
It's been announced on Facebook, so it's only right to announce it on our blog: our webstore has officially launched! You can get all your favorite Evolue products delivered to your front door! Shipping as always is free and we love to answer questions, so feel free to email or call the store!
Not only is Evolue always improving the products that we sell and put on our shelves but so is Jane Iredale. The fabulous company is improving the formula AND packaging for their lip glosses which hit stores this week. Yes we have the new glosses at Evolue, so come and get them while they last! Jane Iredale has taken away some of the shades that we have grown to love but there shouldn't be any tears shed, because they're rolling out all new shades (while keeping some favorites) and the packaging is a definite improvement. While they had the former glosses in squeezable tubes, the new glosses are housed in hard cylinder containers that we think are more purse friendly. Another new edition to Evolue from Jane Iredale are their Liquid Mineral Foundation. While we still believe Jane Iredale has the best pressed powder foundation out there, sometimes a girl just needs a little bit of liquid gold in her life. The cool thing about this product? It looks like tiny beads in the packaging and has aloe in the formula to help hydrate your skin while making it flawless and fabulous. So come by and check out the new items and we'll be happy to show you the new shades.
Debbie Leavitt of Sheswai Lacquer is bringing spring to us early by adding 3 new shades to her already fabulous line. While the weather in LA is allowing us to break out the dresses and sandals, that means we need to start paying attention to the small details and let's start with our nails! Sheswai Lacquer's three new shades include For Real, Ladylike and Dig It and here's what we think of them: For Real is an extremely light colored pink shade that screams spring and Easter to us. It's for those days when you're drinking mimosas at brunch with your ladies or hosting a mani-pedi, mother-daughter event. This bone-pink is all about a delicate femininity and gets us giddy just talking about it. Ladylike is a great pink that brings a smile to your lips when you're staring down at your nails. Perfect for the office or date night with someone that gives you butterflies. It's demure yet captivating... something women have always been told to be. To take this color to the next level, think about using an accent color or a pop of glitter to the tips. Dig It is clean cut grass, a day at the park and the color of spring. When everything is in bloom and you're ready for shorts, happy hour on a patio and joining friends for a concert in the park, Dig It will be the color to get you in the mood for adventurous fun. So whether it's mimosas with your favorite ladies or a lazy Sunday in the park, Sheswai and Evolue have all your pretty nail needs!
While it might not always seem like LA has a winter, there are consequences of the up and down weather of this lovely city. While you're layering on the clothes one day and in a sundress the next, your skin and hair are going through their own changes and we're here to tell you how to help them. First things first: those dry, cracking hands of yours. No matter how much hand lotion you apply, they never seem to be as beautiful as they are in the summer. Well here's what you need to do: you need to start EXFOLIATING so that new, lovely and soft skin will absorb moisture. If you don't already exfoliate, all you're doing is hydrating dead skin and that just doesn't sound appealing to anyone. Most, if not everyone who works at Evolue have tried and are still using Prada Lab's Velvet Skin Macadamia Hand Scrub and the difference is immediate: our skin is as smooth and hydrated as ever! Speaking of moisture, why does it seem that winter is so harsh on our hair? Is it because we're not constantly at the beach or is it because the air is actually that much more dry? Well if you seem to always have your hair in a braid, pony tail or top knot, it's time to treat your hair with some TLC. In addition to your regular hair care regimen, pick up Rare El'ements El' Treatment and use this blend of magic oils that will restore your hair to its youth. You can use it up to 2 to 3 times a week if you have extremely damaged health or just once in a while for a pick me up. It's your answer to maintaining your luscious locks and having hair that's ready to go no matter what season it is! Now onto that beautiful face of yours.. What exactly have you been using at night to keep it hydrated and looking spectacular? I really hope your answer is Evolue's Day and Night Cream for Dry to Very Dry Skin. No? Why not?! This cream will nourish your dry skin and can be used near your eyes and lips and please don't forget your throat- we want ALL of your skin to look youthful and fabulous, not just your face. During the winter, it's so important to hydrate your skin because it's always producing new layers of skin to look it's best. The last thing we recommend is to spritz yourself with Evolue's Health Flower Mist. When it seems like you're always surrounded by the sickly, the essential oils in the Health Mist will re-energize and regenerate your body. A mix of essential oils that not only smell good but make you feel better, this is the perfect mist for winter! Being sick is no fun and always puts a damper on your as-busy-as-ever schedule, so try to keep healthy by using this mist, and getting plenty of beauty rest! Don't fret, Evolue has you covered for your beauty needs and just think Spring is just around the corner!
