G by Giuliana Holiday Gifts

Giuliana RancicComment

I'm so excited that my brand new December collection is now live on HSN.com!! I designed this collection making sure each and every item would be something I'd want to give (or receive!) as a gift for the holidays. Some items even come with their own special boxes (something I'm doing for the first time!) which makes gifting even easier. You can shop everything right now but be sure to tune in to HSN on December 13 from 7-9pm ET and I'll be talking about everything you see here. Can't wait!! (p.s. i'm uhb-sessed with the denim jeans with the quotes!!!  Check them out below!)

1. G by Giuliana Striped Ruana: There's so many ways you can wear a Ruana...and because I appreciate versatility (don't we all??) I just had to include one in this collection. They're one size fits all, so cozy, and something you can just throw on to add a layer of warmth (and also a layer of CHIC) to any look!

2. OFF AIR by Giuliana Draped Top: This is just such an easy top to wear...you're going to get one for a friend and end up getting at least one for yourself too! I love it because you can easily dress it up or down and it's fashionable yet super stretchy and soft.  A win-win!

3. OFF AIR by Giuliana Cozy Sherpa Zip Hoodie With Pockets: Whether you're crossing off people on your holiday shopping list or looking to treat yourself, this is something every woman can enjoy. Cozy is in the name and once you get it home, you'll know why!

4. G by Giuliana Sculpted Faux Fur Draped Vest: A luxe layering piece that comes in so many great colors...there's one for every woman on your list. This vest is ageless so everyone from your daughter to your grandmother will want one of these!

5. OFF AIR by Giuliana Artist Series Sweatshirt With Gift Box: When it comes to the Brittany Fuson tees, we cannot keep these in stock!! I've collaborated with her several times and you guys just can't seem to get enough of her fashion illustrations (she's extremely talented so I can see why!) For this collection, I wanted to add different option so we're offering her illustrations in a sweatshirt for the first time ever. We went with a travel theme, as this is one of the biggest travel times of the year. Perfect for your jet-setting friend or just someone who appreciates a super soft sweatshirt!

6. OFF AIR by Giuliana Artist Series High-Low Tee With Gift Box: These tees are more in the style I've done with Brittany in the past but I wanted to make it long sleeve (it is December, after all!) and add the high-low hem, which has been very popular with these tops. They're crazy soft and have a ton of stretch...you're going to love them!

7. G by Giuliana "Get Inspired" Quote Denim Boyfriend Jean: Adding a little something extra to my best-selling boyfriend jeans, these have two of my favorite quotes that I wanted to share with you...something to make you feel confident and beautiful everyday!

8. OFF AIR by Giuliana Water-Resistant Parka With Faux Fur Lining: It's not easy to find a fashionable AND warm parka...so I decided to make one myself! Comes in army green with blush faux fur lining and black with neutral faux fur lining.  This is the hottest look in fashion right now, parkas in fun fur linings, so you will get the look for MUCH less than the price that the real ones are going for right now.

9. OFF AIR by Giuliana Artist Series Scarf With Gift Box: This scarf is a piece of art on its own (you could even frame it if you wanted to!) but once you wrap yourself in it, you get bits and pieces of color to create this super wearable, fashion-forward piece you won't be able to find anywhere else!

10. OFF AIR by Giuliana Striped Scarf: I created this in the same super soft material as the Ruana but I wanted to give you guys an option for more of a traditional scarf style. It is thicker than the Ruana and it gives you amazing volume when you wrap it around a couple of times.  I am always on the hunt for scarves with the great fashionably voluminous look and this is the one...plus it's super warm enough to get you through the winter!

11. OFF AIR by Giuliana Ponte Legging With Seaming: If you've been on the hunt for the perfect leggings, look no further. Some leggings can look too athletic or casual and these you can dress or up or down...you will literally live in them (I have been!)  I'm literally wearing the charcoal pair as I type right now!!!

Everything You Need To Know About Microblading

Giuliana Rancic17 Comments

With celebrities whose eyebrows are as famous as their names (Cara Delevingne and Brooke Shields to name a couple), those arches are in demand more than ever before. For any of you that over plucked your brows throughout the years or you just want a fuller effect without having to fill them in everyday, listen up...because Microblading may be for you!

What's cool about Microblading is that the results are subtle but definitely darker and filled in...you don't want it to be too dramatic, as this is your everyday look.

So what else do you need to know about Microblading? (Besides the fact that it will give you ridiculously good brows without having to put in any daily effort!) I caught up with GLAM'D owner Brittani Sylvester in Chicago (pictured above with brow babe Gaby Raguso) to get the scoop on what this new eyebrow trend is all about.

What exactly is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of semi permanent make up which is implemented using a hand held tool comprised of between 6-14 micro needles hence the name microblade. 

How is it different than eyebrow tattooing?

Microblading is the process of implanting pigment into the basal membrane which divides the epidermis from the dermis layer of the skin to create fuller looking brows. Eyebrow tattoo is done with a motorized device whereas microblading is done used a hand held tool, also know as a pen. When it comes to the term microblading the hand tool is used to simulate hair strokes in the brow. Microblading artists also use pigment vs ink. Pigment has a thicker consistency while ink is more watery in texture and tends to have more staying power. Most pigment will last in the skin between 1-5 years, keeping in mind different skin types and the use of skin care products. There is no “spilling” under the skin which leaves the strokes fine and crisp. Naturally the pigment will exfoliate out of the skin over time causing the pigment to lighten.

Does it hurt?

Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. You might feel a slight discomfort but it is almost painless.

Can you describe what the first session in like?

During you first session (approximately 2 hours), we custom design your brow shape based on your bone structure, eye placement, face shape and other factors. The pigment choice is then selected. Once your shape and pigment are agreed upon, you will then be numbed using a lidocaine cream. 

You do not have to hide from the world after your service. Many clients can walk right out the door, ready to show off their new brows. Initially stronger in color your new brows will soften in 2-3 weeks. 

After your initial appointment, a touch up can be done between 4-6 weeks. It is not always necessary but it is helpful as it insures that the color is locked into the epidermis and doesn't migrate or leave the skin completely.

How long does it last?

Untouched, the service will last 12-18 months.

How has Microblading become so popular so fast? 

Trends change. Brows frame your face. The 80s style of full thick brows are back. Microblading is the fastest growing brow treatment in the world. People (yes, women and men) who have never considered permanent make up are getting it done. The option to change your look and style every 12-18 months, or change in personal appearance due to trends, helps people to not be afraid of the commitment like that of a traditional tattoo.

Is there anyone who isn't a candidate for microblading?

Everyone is a candidate, there are a few contraindications that may require a doctor's note in order to perform the treatment. A couple examples where a doctor's note would be needed are Cancer, Hemophilia, and Hepatitis.

Once of the most common questions we are asked is “ Can I get microbladed while I am pregnant?” We would not perform the service if you are pregnant or nursing.
