Five Successful & Influential Woman Today

Hello March! Not only is the hope of Spring near, but it is also that month dedicated to women. Welcome National Women's History Month. 

We know that women have struggled throughout the years to give us the opportunity we have today. It's a great feeling that today we are not taking that for granted. In fact, we here from BPure Beauty Bar would like to celebrate the top five women of our day.  Get ready and hold on to your chairs girls, here are the top 5 most successful and influential woman of our time. 

1. Oprah Winfrey

This is without a doubt an obvious for anyone in the world. Oprah is definitely living the American dream from rags to riches. With her career starting in high school when she worked part-time at a TV station, she has now blossomed as a positive influence for woman and people around the world.

2. Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama has been and still is one of the most active first lady's in American History. She is successful for starting the Let's Move!, School Lunch Program and helped the country’s largest food manufacturers pledged to cut 1.5 trillion calories from the food they sell by 2015 through their Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (just to name a few).

3. Angelina Jolie

Not only is she a successful actress, she has definitely shown her calling in the world as a UN High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador, advocating on behalf of refugees around the world.  After filming Lara Croft in Cambodia and seeing the proverty, she was inspired to not only take action but to also inspire others in the world to take action.



4. J. K. Rowling

This British author has definitely made her name out in the world with her award-winning Harry Potter series. Her book series have sold over 400 million copies and is still a popular hit today. 


5. Indra Nooyi

Starting in 1994 she worked at Pepsico and today is an influential woman showing that hard work definitely pays off. Since she started working as CFO, PepsiCo’s revenues have increased by over 70%. Impressively, under Nooyi’s leadership, PepsiCo surpassed Coca-Cola in market value for the first time in history.


Fashion at the Oscars

It is that time of year, the Oscars. We love it all; the red carpet, the performances, and especially the fashion. I know that when I was a little girl, watching everyone in their beautiful gowns and slick tuxedos was the most exciting thing ever and today is no different.


At B Pure Beauty we love fashion and definitely want to share our favorite outfits for this year's Oscars.

Best Perm Styles For This Spring!

Ladies, spring is just around the corner. It’s time to get that new style you’ve always wanted, whether it’s the latest trends in clothes, makeup and one of my personal favorites… HAIR! I love knowing the latest trends in hair and this season an oldie but goodie is back and redesigned the perm! Perms have always been known for its tight, well-defined poodle curls. But 2018 has brought a whole new way to define the perm and B Pure Beauty Bar loves them all. We picked five of our favorite perms that are in this season.

1. Natural or Perm? Perm


Our first choice is for you ladies who want to keep the natural look going. This perm
gives you the luscious, sexy curls. This textured curl look is in and it looks more amazing then ever!
You know what they say: go big or go home.

2. Mohawk perm


Want to really re-invent yourself this season? This double daring style is a must try (if
you are up for the fun challenge). It’s daring to sport the Mohawk, why not add a little curl
and volume to top it off?

3. Super defined root perm


For those of us who want to have those beautiful, well defined bouncy curls, this perm is
for you. Get the luscious locks you’ve always wanted. This style will lift your hair from the
roots to give loads of volume and tight curly-Qs.

4.  Beach Waves Perm

beach perm.jpg

Unwind with the laid back, chilled beach girl look. Perms don’t always have to be tight
defined curls anymore. Get this look with the help of an Olaplex Perm.

5.  Big Body Perm


This perm will give you big, gorgeous curls that look natural and feel sassy. You’ll get
that special oomph for the evening out with your girls or an afternoon out.

6 Best Makeup Trends for Spring 2018

It is almost the end of February already and you know what that means…? The hope for Spring is just around the corner! Time to feel the warm sun, plan trips and of course trade in those heavy winter coats for a flattering spring dress. I know for a fact I also like to know the latest trends in cosmetics.

We here at Be Pure Beauty Bar have researched and came up with six must-have items this spring/summer 2018:


1.     Tea Stained Eye Shadow

This look is popular on the runway this season and it's obvious why. We recommend L’Oreal Paris Infallible Shaping Stick.

2.     Red lipstick

As if this hasn’t been out of style yet! Who doesn’t love a sassy red to go for a night out with the girls or a date. We recommend MAC cosmetics MAC red lipstick.

 Taylor Swift rockin' the red lips

3. Cat Eyes

This is one of my favorite looks. I definitely recommend Stila Eyeliner at Sephora.



4. Thick Eyelashes

As if this isn’t obvious. What girl doesn't want to bat their eyelashes this spring? Long eyelashes are definitely not going out of style anytime soon. We love Dior Pumpshow Pump n’ Volume Mascara.

5. Gold and Metallic nail polish


Time to bring out the wild risk taker in you ladies. I always love these nail polishes for a night out with the girls. Essie shades are a MUST for this spring.

6. Face Masks


With all these makeup tips, our last tip for this spring that’s in is a facial mask. With all the dirt and oils that may build up with the season change, it’s always a good plan to treat your skin right.  Below is an article with some of the best homemade facial masks. Who would have thought that your groceries could also be cosmetics!




Fashion Week 2018! Our Favorite Styles

We all love fashion and 2018’s New York Fashion is sadly over. No fears though! We here at Be Pure Beauty Bar love all the beautiful makeup, hairstyles and of course fashion! We would like to share with you our favorite looks from this year.

Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung’s line this week during New York Fashion was simple beautiful and colorful. Prabal has been a strong influence on empowering and embracing feminism as he quoted on social media: “This is the #pgworld, where we celebrate female solidarity, we share colours of Prabal’s home in the east and we present a vision of our collective future, a future that is #StrongInColour.”

Leanne Marshall

I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for evening gowns and dresses. This year on Valentine’s Day, Leanne Marshall at Gallery II at Spring Studios shared some perfect gowns for 2018. Not only were they gorgeous gowns, but Leanne supports women of all sizes! The gowns are gorgeous and elegant; the women are beautiful and strong. What more could we ask for?

LeanneMarshall_fashion 2018.jpg

Esteben Cortazer

Columbian designer, Esteben Cortazer has taken a huge storm bringing diversity to the runaway. He brings a modern twist with greys, greens and earthy colors to the everyday working woman. He has taken a lot of inspiration from other cities his work has grown which gives it a beautiful, sophisticated and worldly feel.


Michael Kor

Now I love my Michael Kors and this year he really mixed everything... literally everything! Anything from plaid, floral prints, and stripes. According to, "Kors’s show felt effortlessly inclusive in multiple ways. There were unknowns and there were runway vets, twiggy girls, and curvy ones, male and female models from all over the globe. Kors sees beauty everywhere—a fitting message for Valentine’s Day." -Nichole Phelps

Tom Ford

Animal prints, leggings, you are looking back at a revamped 80's style. Last but not least, Tom Ford's combat with his unique style during New York Fashion Week.  According to Nichole Phelps, Vogue Author, "Tom Ford in a nutshell: confident in the extreme and irreverent to the edge of defiance. For every viewer that questions this show’s good taste, there’s another that’ll call it glamour and be seduced." His work definitely deserves a second look.

You’re photographer will thank you for hiring a professional artist who knows what they’re doing in creating beauty.

1.     Be Stress Free
Enjoy the salon/spa coming to you on your wedding day, relax and be pampered in the comfort of your hotel, home, or venue, while sipping on champagne, enjoying breakfast, and chatting with your girlfriends. You already have enough to worry about, leave the beauty part to the professionals. 

2.    Be The Best You

Although you may say I don’t wear much makeup so I’ll just do it myself, what you may not realize is there is a lot more detail in creating a natural makeup look for photography than you think. Bridal makeup is entirely different from your everyday makeup, even if you do a great job the key is to know how the makeup photographs. A professional makeup artist will highlight your best features and contouring any imperfections.  They will use proper techniques and professional products that are best for all day wear to keep you looking flawless through your entire day. Your makeup artist is going to know what colors to use to make your eyes pop and how to apply eyeshadows correctly for your eye shape. Your hairstylist is going to know what hairstyles will best suit your facial shape, facial features, and fit your desired hairstyle within your bridal theme. Also, your hairstylist will keep in mind how your hair will photograph from every angle to make sure symmetry is perfect.

3.   High Quality Professional Products

Professional hair/makeup artists carry high quality expensive products that are designed for HD film/TV, longevity, and wear-ability. Leave your hair and makeup in the hands of professionals who have taken years of professional training to keep up on the trends, techniques, and latest product inventions. Do your research when hiring your artist, ask them what is in their kit, as most professionals have spent $500-$2500 on their kits.

 6 months prior to wedding we recommend starting a 6 step facial series. stop any facial treatments one week prior to the wedding. Stop any peels two weeks prior to the wedding.  COME INTO THE SPA FOR SOME PAMPERING THE DAY BEFORE YOUR WEDDING TO PRIMP AND PREP WITH A LUXURIOUS MASSAGE, blowout, NAIL AND WAXING TREATMENTS.

4.   Your Skin, Why Is It So Important?

Everyone is looking at you on your wedding day as you are the center of attention, so invest in you- this is your day do it your way! In order to achieve that flawless makeup look we all want, we first need to take care of our skin. A professional makeup artist will be able to examine and give recommendations for improving your skin and possibly be able to customize a skin care routine for you or recommend a series of facials before the big day. BPure Spa recommends our brides to start a 6 step series of facials well in advance of your wedding date, ask us more about our bridal spa packages. 

5.    Why is a bridal trial important?
A bridal trial is a chance for you to meet with your artists and try hair/makeup styles you like to give you an idea of what your overall look will be. Just because you love a certain hairstyle on someone else it may or may not be the right look on you. You will want to meet them and make sure that your personalities are compatible, because they will be a part of an intimate time with you and your bridal party. At your trial you should be able to communicate your ideas or concerns and be open to receiving feedback from your stylist on what looks may be best suited for you. A professional artist who is great at what they do will listen to your concerns, make sure you’re comfortable, and will gain your trust in the process. You should walk out of your bridal trial feeling like a million bucks, and if you don’t make sure you let your artist know, as they are there to make you happy. 


So…. Will you be hiring a professional to do your makeup and hair on your wedding day? Remember you get what you pay for, make sure you do your research when hiring an artist. If there is a makeup/hair stylist offering super low prices for on-location wedding makeup/hair, they are most likely lacking experience.  Book a professional with a portfolio, reviews, and a good reputation, because it is not worth hiring the wrong person for your wedding day!
