HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVERS! I couldn’t be more excited to usher in 2016 with the launch of something very special that you may have picked up on lately on my Instagram, THE BEAUTY EDIT! When I launched Margo & Me, we started out as a destination for all things fashion. As we are constantly growing and developing fresh content, I asked myself, “what’s next,” last fall. This is truly one of the biggest projects I worked to developed in 2015 and it’s now live on the site to kick off a very new editorial component going into 2016!

When it comes to beauty, I have three rules; it should be effortless, elegant and playful! And because no look is complete without the perfect lip stain, The Beauty Edit brings you a celebrated curation of products, tips, tricks and skincare regimes deemed essential for every modern beauty, just like yourself.

So you might be asking, what do I know about beauty and skincare? And that is a very important question! Growing up, I was lucky to have my Mom by my side. She is an esthetician who has worked for clinical dermatologists for the past fifteen years. I guess this wouldn’t have mattered much to me if I was blessed with perfect skin – but it’s quite the opposite.

Confession #1: Through the years, I’ve struggled with acne, cystic acne (ouch), eczema and mild psoriasis. Ok so maybe you don’t have those issues (lucky you) but how does this translate to beauty? Through the years, I’ve had to pave a path to discover what’s best for my sensitive skin and have kept my finger on the pulse of what’s new because of it.  And let me tell you,  I have been through everything. Not only that but I continue to experiment with different products because the industry is always introducing their next best thing.

As I was at lunch with a girlfriend last summer, I shared my latest product discovery with her, and she suggested that I share this with all of you! But how could I do that without the proper platform? And so The Beauty Edit was born! A destination for all things beauty from an honest, intimate perspective. The topics expressed here excite me because I have a very personal connection to it. Confession #2: I own more lipsticks than I do shoes, which brings me to my next topic; makeup.

If you’ve been reading for long enough, you know I’m uber feminine and delight in all things charming, elegant and graceful. Just visit my Pinterest page if you don’t believe me. What look is complete without the perfect wing tip or the right shade of red? My girlfriends constantly tease me when we go out to dinner, “Jen, were keeping it casual ok?”.  I truly don’t tire of getting glam!

So what can you expect? With each fashion blog post I publish, there will be a beauty component to the post as well. If you scroll down below, you can click over to the page that will take you through each product I used to get my beauty look that day. There is also The Beauty Edit’s destination page if you’re just interested in seeing my most recent obsessions.

How about that, the very first week of the year and I’ve got something so fresh, so new and so major for you to explore! And wait for it, we’ve got something even BIGGER coming your way very, very soon!

In the meantime, I would love if you would share your beauty questions with me! Who knows, it might just inspire the topic for my next Beauty Edit!

This is such a great look!! I love the jacket but I can’t seem to find it on the Barbara Bui website to buy it. Can you please repost the link to the jacket?

Hi Kavita! Thank you so much! Sorry to be a tease but the jacket is from a few seasons ago 🙁

You look gorgeous, as always. This look is amazing, and I am very excited for your Beauty Edit (please include how you you do your winged liner in a post at some point)! Hope your new year is at a great start! 🙂


Thank you so much love! Can’t wait either – definitely going to do something on eyeliner soon too! xo

Wish you all the luck with this new project!! (that jacket is to die for btw!) 🙂


I’m in love with everything about this!! The blue clutch and details on the coat and the gold shoes… Love it!


Gorgeous as ever .You look so chic.I really love the style.

Hi Jenny- I would love to know how you control dry skin in the winter-particularly for those who have combination skin like dry and acne proned skin?

Thanks! I love your new edit! It will be so much fun to follow along!

Thank you so much, Alyssa! <3 xo

How can I order this jacket?

Your jacket is so cool, I love the unique design

This jacket is seriously amazing!! I literally felt in love with it! You look beautiful! Congrats for the Beauty Edit!!


I am so in love with that coat! I have a slight coat addiction, haha <3 Congrats on the exciting things happening to your website!

Yay!!! So excited for this new venture for MM! I love all things fashion and beauty so this will be exciting for me as a reader and follower of your blog! I myself do freelance styling and makeup on the side, and am always looking to incorporate new trends, tips and tricks.
Personally, I’d love to see:

1) Skincare travel tips: just as a reader above suggested. My hubby and I travel a lot as well and I always find Europe to be very harsh and dry on the skin and hair, not to mention the circulated air in the plane, which really messes up my skin before I even arrive! How do you battle that?

2) Nails: I am a true believer that being properly put together includes a no-chip manicure at all times (kinda obsessed about that). Lately however, I’ve been concerned about the toxins involved and try to use only 3-free nail polish brands- (I generally do my own nails). I’d love to know what your top brands for nail polish are, top colors you gravitate to (even when sticking to trends and designs), and how often (or not) should one get gel manicures. 🙂

3) Your daily makeup routine and products used.
That’s it for now! Thanks! 🙂

Awe! Thank you so much for the love and support!! Really excited about this too 🙂 Your feedback is amazing and I totally feel you. Travel is unbearable when it comes to beauty but definitely have a few tips to share! And duh!!! OMG chip-free is seriously a must. I honestly switch off between nail polish (I do my own too) and also doing gel when I am traveling or when there is a special occasion. Gel really wears down the strength of mine so I use the most amazing strengthener called Duri! After a month, you won’t believe how strong and long they get! xoxo

Ohh I am SO excited to hear about the beauty things!!! More amazing content from one of my favourite bloggers!

Thank you so much for the support and the sweet words!! <3 xoxo

Very happy to see this added component to your site. Your beauty and makeup is always so perfect. Excited to see more to come!:)


Thank you so much, Krisztina! Can’t wait to share! xo

Hi Love! So excited that you’re sharing your beauty tips and tricks. Your look is always flawless. I want the details on your winged tip eyeliner. What do you use and how do you apply it?


Thank you! It’s by Charlotte Tillberry and it’s called “Bitch Perfect” LOL!

Oh this is such a fantastic print. I adore your new online renovation and invention and I am so excited to see all your beauty tips and tricks in detail!!!


YAY! Thank you so much for the amazing feedback <3 xo

This Beauty Edit idea is so exciting and fun! I’ve loved your blog for all of its fashion inspiration and I can’t wait to see what’s to come! I would love to see what your ‘everyday makeup’ would look like. 🙂

So happy to hear that you like it! It’s been a long time in the making and have been so excited to share! Thank you for your sweet feedback! I’ll definitely do a post about every day makeup, great idea! xo

Hi! Absolutely love this post…and I LOVE your new idea!

1. I would definitely like to see some posts on how you overcame acne (for good!) and any tips/tricks/remedies you use to keep your skin so lovely all the time.

2. Also, I know you travel a lot so I would love to see how you keep your skin clear during travel – dry airplane rides, foreign (and often more indulgent) food, less sleep and a temporarily different lifestyle. What things do you always bring to keep your skin flawless? What are your go-to travel remedies?

3. I would also love to know a bit more about your fitness routine and diet – I know both of those things play into healthy skin. Do you find that consistency with a clean diet and exercise helps? What are your favorite foods for clear skin?

Thanks so much for being so willing to listen to your readers! I love your blog and I look forward to all that we’ll get to see in 2016!

You’re such a dream boat for all of these amazing ideas! Writing them down so that I can work them into upcoming posts for sure! Thank you so much for the support and for reading!!! xoxo

Hello there, darling, I love you everyday makeup look. I reminds me of the 1960s with a Brigitte Bardot/ Catherine Deneuve flair. I complements you bangs very nicely. I would enjoy if you did a post about your everyday look, including the winged eyeliner. Also, I would greatly appreciate some information on bangs. I have had them for years and I am always looking for tips.

Thank you lovely. Have a wonderful day! xo

Oh you are seriously making me blush! Brigitte is my idol! Every day looks is a fabulous idea! Will definitely work that into an upcoming post with the winged liner and bangs! Thank you for the inspiration! xo

So excited for you!! Can’t wait for what’s to come.


Hi! Love the Beauty section now! I definitely want to know what product you use for controlling breakouts and blemishes! Thanks!

YAY! Thank you so much for the sweet feedback! Will definitely work that into an upcoming post. Got lots of good secrets for you! xo

That coat is fantastic!! Loving this post-great inspo for 2016!

that jacket is absolutely stunning! congrats on expanding MM this year 🙂
