Project Beauty



We’ve decided to kick off our monthly “JetSet Beauty Must-Haves” in honor of Neiman Marcus’s highly anticipated beauty extravaganza, Project Beauty. Each year, we come away with some fabulous tips, tricks and trends of the trade that we normally may have overlooked. For those just tuning in, Neiman Marcus holds Project Beauty on the tail end of fashion week sending down the runway amazing beauty products that would make any beauty blogger glow. Then to make it even more fabu – each brand has sent a resident expert to answer your questions and give you a one-on-one consultation.

As each representative made his or her way to center stage, the Neiman Marcus models strutted down the catwalk dressed in the latest trends for 2013. Time for a POP QUIZ! Can you name #kenstrends this season? I bet you can if you are a regular JetSet Fam reader! Here’s a few clues: Rocker Chic, Violet Femme, Lace Noir, Boys Town, Red: The New Neutral, and Animal Magnetism. Wrap all these up with single soled, pointed toe shoes (make sure to check out Fashion Island’s Manolo Blahnik BB Bar,) a high multifaceted necklace, scaled down “mini-me” handbags and a fierce Fall Face and BAM! We have major fashion lift off.


So how do we achieve this Fall Face you ask? Bold eyebrows (thank gawd…), thick lush lashes and a powerful red lip. The models and displays around the store have traded in flowing locks and messy buns for slicked back ponytails. And we cannot neglect the appearance of our skin. Take care of your canvas ladies, it’s the only one you will have!

And without further ado…

Review overview
  • LaVonne September 23, 2013

    I like to get mineral makeup foundation and powder.

  • Jill @ Real Life Notes September 23, 2013

    I don’t know much about makeup and beauty products, so this list was really interesting. Thank you!

  • Melanie September 23, 2013

    Thanks for sharing these. I never know what to buy!

  • Jade Samson September 23, 2013

    I invest in good moisturizers and foundation.

  • Melissa Burton September 23, 2013

    I make you want to exercise, you make me want to do more than the “OMG, I need to take better care of myself run to a beauty counter, buy a crapload of make-up/beautry products and watch them sit in my drawer until the next freakout”.

    I need help.

  • Tonya September 23, 2013

    Don’t mind me, I’m just drooling over here… so many awesome beauty products, so little time!

  • Christie Moeller September 23, 2013

    Love love love! I’m a huge Glamglow fan!

  • Allyson Bossie September 23, 2013

    I am glad that bold eyebrows are back in! At 37, my eyebrows are already thinner than they once were so they don’t really need too much waxing. However, they are a wider brown than the thin that was in for so long. I am glad that now I can just shape them and groom them!

  • Carrie Harris September 23, 2013

    I’m willing to invest in great skin care products! What a great article!

  • Sharon Garofalow September 23, 2013

    These sound awesome. I can’t wait to check them out!

  • Miya Goodrich September 23, 2013

    I need red lipstick, STAT! Also that Kiehl’s corrective cream is intriguing…

  • Diane September 23, 2013

    Great list!

  • Mimi September 23, 2013

    I don’t know a lot about makeup, but I always have a tube of mascara with me. That’s about it. I’ll have to check out this list!

  • Karen September 23, 2013

    Thanks for sharing, this is an awesome list

  • fancygrlnancy (Nancy Partin) September 24, 2013

    I’m pretty simple, but I love my mineral make up.
