Beauty.Com Partners With Zero + Cornejo Maria On An Exclusive Travel Case

image Beauty.com is at it again with another one of their famous designer collaborations. This time around, they collaborated with the award-winning fashion label Zero + Maria Cornejo in creating a super chic travel bag stuffed with 16 deluxe hair, makeup, and skincare samples. The travel bag trio features zippered compartments in three shapes that can be carried individually or as a set. “This bag is based on the three shapes that always inspire the collection — a circle, a square, and a triangle,” says Cornejo. “When I was designing the bag, I was thinking of busy women like myself who, when they travel, need maximum flexibility. I love the idea that each separate compartment snaps apart so that you can separate your products and just grab one item and go!”

The entire set is valued at $140 but will be yours free with any purchase of $100 or more at beauty.com/zeromariacornejo.

So what exactly will you find in this chic travel bag?

A Better Bargain: DAY Birger et Mikkelsen ‘Star’ Leather Riding Boots

image DAY Birger et Mikkelsen is the brain child of lead designer Michala Weisneck, who fuses luxury with the modern and functional tailoring inspired by a Scandinavian aesthetic. The Danish brand launched in 1998 and is influenced by Asia, along with the glamour of vintage fashion and a whimsical twist for good measure. Weisneck honed her design skills at Christian Lacroix, Cacharel and Christian Dior before going to DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. What we love most about DAY Birger et Mikkelsen is the gorgeous styling and the reasonable “Frugalista” prices. A pair of leather riding boots for $300? We couldn’t believe it. Apparently neither could many other shoppers since the ‘Star’ leather riding boots in black are sold out at Net-a-Porter. We did find the ‘Star’ boots are available in brown at my-wardrobe.com for $260. To see more, click on over to our friends at TheFind!

The Perfect Little Jacket (For Under $100!)

image I’m crushing for this BB Dakota Indigo Blue Marsh Jacket ($70 at chickdowntown.com). The jacket is a lightweight deep denim and the ruffles on the sleeve give the military look a much more softer feel. Pair it with a longer tee over skinnies (pants, jeans, leggings — just learned this term in NY, ha!) for a more casual look. Plus it’s totally affordable! When the weather gets more chilly wear a long sleeve shirt with color to make it pop like this yellow one shown here. Looove this look! To find out more, click on over to our friends at Coquette!

Steal Her Style: Blake Lively’s Summery Hamptons Look

image Blake Lively is one of the most stylish starlets in Tinseltown — and she doesn’t work with a personal stylist. The outfit she recently wore to QVC’s Super Saturday charity shopping event in the Hamptons was molto bene and perfect for a breezy summer day. Blake paired a form-fitting white mini by Herve Leger with a tailored blue-and-white-striped Oxford, and the classic preppiness of the shirt balanced the raciness of the eensie-weensie skirt. She finished the look with a pair of brown patent round-toe pumps and a long chain necklace. Here’s how you can get her look for way less, courtesy of Lemondrop!

1. Elizabeth and James Schoolboy Shirt: This menswear-inspired shirt features ruched sleeves and back buttons to keep it looking fitted, not boxy. $264
2. Forever 21 Cut Off Denim Skirt: A crisp white skirt like this can be worn to a daytime BBQ or as an impromptu beach cover-up. $20
3. Matisse Pump: A thick wooden heel and shiny patent upper combine to make this pump a true eye-catcher. $42
4. Sequin Long Chain Necklace: Add some funky style to a more classic look with a fun, tiered chain necklace like this gorgeous silver version. $40

Rock Sexy Stripes Like Leighton Meester

image At the Teen Choice Awards, Leighton Meester rocked a fashion-forward look that was both sweet and sexy. The “Gossip Girl” star wore a funky striped dress from Louis Vuitton, which was accented with ruffle details adding a flirty sensibility. She gave the look a sexy kick with red Brian Atwood pumps and an edgy black cuff by Cathy Waterman and rounded out the mix with a dainty pair of earrings. Stripes are super hot right now and can work for anyone, no matter your style. When wearing graphic prints, it’s usually best to keep everything else relatively simple to avoid sensory overload. You can pair a striped frock with a few standout pieces like Leighton, go bold with piles of accessories, or keep it simple and team it with basic pumps.

image At this year’s Teen Choice Awards, Jordin Sparks ventured into more fashion-forward territory with an amazingly bold look that wasn’t too over-the-top.

Hot In The Hive: Sephora Brand Color-Dipped Brushes

image In the market for some new makeup brushes but just can’t seem to be able to tell all the costly, separately-functional tools apart from each other? The big fluffy one is probably for your face, got it. But this little bristly one… is that for your eyes? Eyeliner? Crease? Huh? I know, the realm of brushes can be complicated, but thankfully someone made things simpler and more multi-tasking friendly… not to mention cheerfully colorful! These Sephora Brand Color-Dipped Brushes aren’t just fun to look at — they’re actually color-coded based on their function. And since each brush is double-sided, that’s two functions in one. From the fluffy pink Complexion Brush (one side for powder and one for concealer) and the precise purple Smokey Eye Brush (eyeliner applicator and smudging tool) along with 3 others, you can more easily tell all of your meticulous brushes apart from each other, get more bang for your buck with their double ends, and have a way cuter brush collection than your friends!

Price: $18-35
Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Sephora Brand Color-Dipped Brushes to the Hive.
