Wedge Sneakers are the perfect thing to wear on your feet this fall, as they give you the height a pair of heels would yet you get the comfort of a pair of sneakers! Several fashionista celebrities have been photographed in these kicks from Hilary Duff to Miranda Kerr to Beyoncé. A pair of black wedges go great with a pair of dark wash skinnies and an oversized black sweater, the look says casual and comfortable on a colder day. A pair of pink wedge sneakers or a pair of blue high-tops are an easy way to add a pop of color to the darker colors in your fall wardrobe. A sport wedge in a lighter color breaks away from everyone’s usual darker shoe fall picks and will make your feet stand out in the crowd. Or if you do not prefer the high-top look you can always throw on a pair of canvas platforms which will still give you the same comfortable height. Definitely a trend you should try out this fall BeTrenders!

Our BTMinterns are obsessed with nails and this new trend is no exception. Denim Nails, like denim shirts, are massive this fall/winter and can be seen all over, but especially on Pinterest and Tumblr. Styles can vary from denim with intricate pocket designs and stitching, or can be a plain denim hue with some acid wash detailing. We’ve found a few options for our BeTrenders to try at home. Maybelline has created a denim collection line this year and there are some hues that are not only beautiful, they can be a great base for added touches. Here is another hue from Picture Polish and from Zoya that are also stunning.
Should you want to try the acid-wash look, after applying your base blue add a single layer of white polish on top, like this one from Essie. Quickly, starting from the cuticle and moving upwards to the end of your nail, take a sponge with remover on it and wipe off some of that white. Don’t forget to finish off with a great top coat to polish off the nail.BeTrenders, we’re super curious what you think of this trend. If you do try it at home be sure to send us some pics.

Making your makeup last is a really important thing to us beauty obsessed females. BeTrendMe is going to help you BeTrenders learn how to avoid a makeup meltdown! Start with a clean face, always always always remember to moisturize BeTrenders! This is the MOST important step of any skincare routine! After the cleansing process, be sure to prime your face. Use a mattifying primer. They come in a variety of different formulas and different colors even to correct skin tone, and fix redness. The next step is to use a concealer to cover up dark circles. You can use a concealer brush or your ring finger for application. Next is foundation! The longest lasting foundation is going to be a liquid foundation. If you have oily skin though, your best option would be a powder foundation. To keep the liquid formula lasting even longer, use a foundation brush. After you’ve put your “face” on (including your blush or bronzer) you’re on to the eyes! Depending what Keep reading →

BeTrendMe has loved everything that 2012 has brought! All the different trends have piqued our interest and we’re going to show you our favorite hair trends from 2012! Ombre has been around in a big way this year! From the natural ombre, to the more defined ombre, to ombre that fun and funky with pastel ends. The ombre trend is one that BTM just can’t get over and we just love it so much! Perfect and sleek ponies are perfect for an event of any kind. They are easy achieve and look great on everyone! Ballerina or sock buns are huge right now! They are super chic and you can make them big or small and they can be worn with a casual outfit, or you can dress them up. They are a great way as well to hide the second day unwashed hair. Volume is also something that is huge right now, pun intended. For people with finer hair, this trend can be a little bit difficult to achieve, but when it is done right, it looks so old school glam! The volume trend is one that BTM thinks is best reserved for a night out. Hair ornaments are a great trend because it is like jewelry for you hair, and really, who doesn’t love jewelry? There’s a wide range and variety of types of hair ornaments and you can wear from day to night for any occasion! BTM loves all of these hair trends, what do you think BeTrenders?

Hey BeTrenders! It’s been talked about since early this year, but finally the Swedish store H&M has announced they’ve created a collection of women’s accessories available next spring in Europe and the UK. The line, titled “& Other Stories” (the collection is said to be inspired by fashion stories) will include shoes, jewellery, bags, beauty products, lingerie and more, making your trip to the store a place where you can complete the look you were going for. The company has been keeping the collection very hush-hush, but our BTMinterns did some amazing digging and have found some images for you guys to check out.
With an affordable price point, our BTMinterns cannot wait to see the collection make its way to North America so we can do some one-stop shopping here. If you want to learn more about the line check out the site and tell us what do you guys think.
