Velvet® 2015 Holiday Gift Guide

Our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide featuring the classic Velvet Elaine in Toastie Almond. Top on our list we included these precious vintage perfume bottles to adorn her dresser and spray the most beautiful memories. Her lips need and desire a collection of our favorite Tom Ford lipsticks for those “under the Mistletoe moments”. One of our favorite holiday gift ideas is the Eve Lom facial cleanser. This cleanser is like butter and her skin will be glowing especially on New Year’s Eve after a few days of this beauty treatment. The Apple Watch any girl would love to own. The Jean Norman plaid shirt is super sexy, hard to find, and surely is a gift she will treasure all year long. We have also decided to include the Clarisonic facial brush. If she doesn’t already have it, she will absolutely love it! Happy shopping!

Love, Velvet

UV radiation in the Fall and the Winter

UV radiation is present all year long and although you may feel the impact on your skin more in the summer months, UV radiation is always present and can even be more damaging during the winter months. The UV index is the highest in the Spring and Summer but it still reaches high levels in the Fall and the Winter too. So protect your eyes and the delicate area around your eyes with Velvet {BB} Lenses. Say “Bye-Bye” crow’s feet!

Velvet top 100 Summer Sunnies featured in June InStyle

This weekend is the unofficial start to summer, and, frankly, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a new pair of shades. As huge proponents of a fully stocked sunglass wardrobe, we’ve rounded up our 100 favorite 100—one for each day of the next few months of warm weather.

Regardless of whether you’re a minimalist, a classicist, or an exhibitionist, we scoured the market and found frames for every type of personality. Consider this your ultimate guide to this summer’s shades. In our honest opinion? These sunnies pair best with your June issue of InStyle (available on newsstands and for digital download), a lounge chair, and, of course, tons of sunshine.
