    What's summer without a list of must-haves? DearMissJ is here to share some of our favorite summer products that will guarantee you a fashionable and flawless summer! 


    Get a dewy and gorgeous glow with the Becca highlight in champagne pop! This highlight enhances your natural glow while adding a subtle shine to accentuate the cheekbones. 


    “Ask any makeup artist what the best beauty secret is and they will say sunscreen. It's your best defense against wrinkles, sun spots and sun damage. This sunscreen goes on in a soft mist, ensuring coverage for every inch of skin.”
    — FIONA STILES, MAKEUP ARTIST
    Summer is always sweaty and sticky, and you definitely don't want to cake your face on top of all that. A light translucent powder is key to controlling any shine and staying polished through out the day! 


    Blotting sheets are your best friend during the summer. They easily remove unwanted oils from your face without taking off your makeup! Tarte's blotting papers are our current favorite, the packaging is so cute as well! 


    Hoops are back and trending this season! The Addison pearl earrings are dainty yet stylish for the summer time. Easy to dress up and down, this is a perfect addition to your jewelry wardrobe!

    Tired of wearing that same red, white, and blue outfit that you've thrown together for the past three, or four, or maybe even five years now? Admit it... if you ever felt a little spontaneous on this holiday, you'd throw in a pair of American flag socks, scatter around for a blue or maybe red bandana, paint your nails in patriotic colors, or pin a red bow that screams 'hey! look at me!' and call it a day. If any of that sounded familiar, well, you're in luck. It's finally time to say hello to your most stylish July 4th yet! 
    Who says you must wear red, white, AND blue? 
    Pick a favorite or two and rock it! 


    Throw on some white pearls, it's always a classic. Doesn't the Jamie necklace look gorgeous against royal blue? 


    Or try the Diana necklace, for an even sweeter look! 


    If you're fanatic about patriotic nails, add a bit of glam to your hands by wearing the LuLu rings! The emerald color especially looks fantastic with red. 


    Be the center of attention in the Aurora necklace, it gives off that summer beach vibe! Perfect for a weekend beach getaway or even family bbq! 
    Have a safe and fun July 4th!

  • DearMissJ's Exclusive Fashion Formulas

    0 comments / Posted by Yixuan Lu

    Kylie's lip skits have been a huge hit, and by huge I mean literally HUGE- selling out just minutes after each restock. To many people, a beautiful lip color needs to go with the perfect eye makeup, bronzer, blush, and fleekin' eyebrows. What many don't realize is that a quality statement necklace will enhance the gloss better than any other makeup product. It draws closer attention to the lower half of your face, which is exactly what you want after spending $40.13 on a lipstick. Follow DearMissJ's exclusive fashion formulas to combine Kylie's glam with DearMissJ's boldness for the trendiest summer look! 


    Kendall Pearl Necklace + Kourt K = Bold Contrast
    Kylie without Kendall? That's simply incomplete! The blue tassels and the hint of deep purple will compliment each other perfectly for a cool and warm contrast. You guaranteed the spotlight of any occasion. 



    Meggie Pearl Necklace + 22 = Modern Classic 
    Red lipsticks will always bring back a timeless look. 22's subtle hint of orange will still give off the same classy vibe, but with a bit of fun! The Meggie necklace features black mink fur that surrounds half of the necklace, bringing you back to the classy mid 1900s when fur was the biggest fashion statement!  22 never looked so hot!


    Aurora Necklace + KoKo K = Chic, on a whole new level.
    The Aurora necklace is one of DearMissJ's signature pieces, bringing about a sense of playful youth and elegance. KoKo K, a rich pinky nude, will do the perfect job when it comes to complimenting pearls of any color, shape, and size. 

     

    Size totally matters. Especially when it comes to statement jewelry!

  • The Ultimate 2016 Summer Glam

    0 comments / Posted by Yixuan Lu

    Right about now is when you begin worrying about when to hit up the gym, what beaches to visit, where the new local hot spots are, how to get that Victoria’s Secret summer glow and most importantly...looking fabulous while at it this summer. Timeless and handcrafted, DearMissJ’s collections will keep you stylish all season long and beyond. Check out the hottest trends of summer 2016, because DearMissJ has the perfect jewels to revamp your summer wardrobe.
     


    Stack on the Rings. Let your delicate hands make a statement by stacking your rings this season. This piece looks great with a loose white tee and distressed jeans, or with a flowy sundress and leather tote. The Lucy-Gold and Lucy-Silver rings add the perfect amount of sparkle to a casual outfit. Wear them alone or together, either way works!


    Add Interesting Shapes. Eye-catching, geometric shapes are everywhere this summer from interior decor to statement accessories. The Courtney Earrings and Courtney Necklace are perfect statements to this trend. Minimal and classy, you will fall head over heels for its versatility. These dainty pieces will be the highlight of your summer collection.


    Accent with lots of GOLD. Gold accents and summer go hand-in-hand. Nothing pairs better with bold turquoises, blues, and corals than a tiny pop of gold. We love the caged Sarah Pearl Necklace, because you can wear it to work, the beach or an evening summer soiree.


    Try an Ear Cuff. Get trendy by showing off your inner biker chick! Not a fan of that punk rock style? Don’t worry, DearMissJ has the perfect solution for you. We love this gold leaf accented Rachel Ear Cuff. Classy yet unexpected, it gives off a sweet impression while subtly bringing out your daring charisma. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail and throw on your favorite leather pieces for a bold statement, or scrunch up a messy bun and put on a flowy dress for an easy day look.


    Add a Splash of Color. We love accenting with deep emerald and ruby tones. This summer is all about adding subtle pops of color. The Lulu Emerald ring is our favorites go-to for achieving this trendy look. The deep emerald and gold combination is so chic, and can be styled with anything from a LBD to a crisp white blouse.
