Lumene CC Color Correcting Cream Review

July 29, 2013

Are you confused by all this double-alphabet beauty madness? Just when you think you have a grasp on the BB Cream, CC Creams hit the market. Let me break it down for you:  A CC cream, a.k.a. Color-Correcting cream, has more pigment than your BB (blemish or beauty balm). It is targeted at those women looking to […]

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – A genie in a bottle

October 28, 2010

Packaged in a precious, genie-like bottle, this miracle Eyeshadow Primer Potion is an ultra-sheer, totally nude eye base that glides on with the wave of a wand and then disappears instantly. It performs three wishes: eyeshadow that lasts, more vibrant and lasting color, and absolutely NO creasing.  Really.  NONE. Apply Primer Potion to eyelids before […]

Perfectly Flawless

June 3, 2010

By far, my absolute favorite pressed powder is Stila’s Illuminating Powder Foundation. Although they call it “foundation”, it is nothing like what you think of when you think of traditional cakey, pore-clogging foundations. It is a velvety powder that gives you a transparent finish while protecting skin with SPF12.  You can keep applying throughout the […]

Diamonds should be shiny, your face should not!  Keep makeup fresher longer and blast shine on contact with Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers.  Instead of applying layer after layer of makeup to combat shine, pat these portable powder covered sheets lightly on your face for a refreshed, matte look. They are also great for blotting […]

Teal is the New Black

April 6, 2010

Want to freshen up your spring look?  Try a touch of teal. Don’t be intimidated by the hue – it’s flattering to every color eye and skin tone.  For a more subtle look, wear it on top of black eyeliner.  Trace a thin line around your upper and lower lashes with a black pencil liner. […]

Easy on the Eyes

March 23, 2010

Not only an iconic tool, but also an absolute must in making your eyes look their flirtiest.  I’m talking about Shu Uemuras Eyelash Curler. Yes, its three times as much as the drugstore brands, but it works ten times better. Delivers the perfect curl, and it doesn’t pinch (or worse yet – rip out) your […]

All that Glitters

March 8, 2010

Shimmery gold eye shadow reflects light and instantly brightens your eyes. Plus, its pretty much error-proof.  Brush iridescent gold shadow onto lids and into the crease and then trace it along the lower lash line as well.  Use dark eyeliner along the top lash line and a couple of coats of the blackest mascara to […]

March 3, 2010

Hide the evidence of a late night out combined with getting up early for work with Smashbox’s Photo Op Under-Eye Brightener. This innovative lightweight formula helps cover up discoloration and dark under-eye circles when used under concealer- but I find it works best dabbed on the inner corners of your eyes – making your eyes […]
