Global Beauty- Seventeen Magazine

I accidentally subscribed to Seventeen Magazine while I was entering a contest on the Cosmopolitan Magazine website.  (Be really careful where you click on any Hearst Magazine site, they try to trick you into subscribing!)  My boyfriend was so very kind as to remind me that I was waaaay too old for Seventeen and had no business reading it, but since the cost for a one year subscription was only $5, I decided to just keep it rather than go to the trouble of unsubscribing.  It has been ages since I read Seventeen.  Even though it is not very beauty or fashion heavy, I found it to be a light and fun read.

One article in particular stood out in the February 2013 edition, and I'd like to share it with you.  It showcases beauty gurus' takes on popular makeup trends from around the world.   

The thing that I have enjoyed the most since venturing into the blogosphere, is seeing the fashion and makeup trends from every corner of the planet.  I love checking my dashboard and learning what is hot, and where.  I've noticed that British girls love red lipstick as much as they love tea, I've developed an addiction to Japanese fashion magazines, I've checked out photos of Indonesian fashion week, and Indian Bridal runway shows.  I love how much my perspective has been broadened and deepened.  And I adore the glimpses my fellow bloggers allow me into their lives, and into their unique experiences and preferences.  That's why I felt this Seventeen article was so on time!  Hope you like it.





So what is your favorite makeup trend these days?  Is there any international trend you have picked up on or adopted while blogging?

  1. Great post, thanks for sharing! I would agree with this article- I don't know much about Mexican makeup, but the makeup actually matches the culture pretty well, and as a Brit I would say that an edgy pout is such a big trend here. The same for the other two countries actually. I love the Hong Kong look, really pretty and I love Bubz!
    Thanks for following me :)
