Pinterest and Polyvore and YouTube, oh my!

Amazing online tools are available for whatever you need to find or improve your image. Learn how to use liquid eye liner for the perfect cat eye. Learn how to treat and cover blemishes. Find reviews for every kind of makeup or styling tool under the sun. Shop for the perfect BB cream from Korea. Find clothing and accessories from multiple sources and see how they look when grouped together. Here are three of my favorites.


If you don’t have a Pinterest account yet, go sign up now. Pinterest boards are so fabulous for all kinds of planning and ideas – crafts, recipes, gardening – but, oh, the fashion uses! Here are some ideas to get you started. How about a board for:

  • Clothing in colors that work for your color profile
  • Styles that are the most flattering for your body type
  • Fashions you like by the season
  • Accessories
  • Christmas wishlist



    Polyvore is a new way to discover and shop for things you love in fashion, beauty and home decor. Get styling tips to mix and match items from your closet. Create looks you like and share them with your followers. Polyvore simplifies online shopping by bringing together all the stores in one convenient place. Polyvore will curate it all into a personalized boutique just for you, making it even easier to discover and shop for looks you love. For visual folks, Polyvore takes Pinterest one step further, allowing you to assemble collections into one graphic to really see how items work together.


    I’ve found YouTube to be an ah-MAZ-ing resource for hairstyling and makeup techniques. Want to learn some intricate, Game-of-Thrones-worthy braids? Need some quick updo ideas? Cute styles for wet hair after gym, pool or beach? How about learning to back comb or create heat-free curls? It’s all there. And makeup videos. You’ll find everything from foundation application to creating Korean-inspired doll eyes complete with circle lenses. Seriously. What did we do before YouTube?
