Don’t really know much about the Twilight Series, but want to be a part of the craze? Want to have the mysterious appeal of those sexy vampires? In celebration of the New Moon, Nordstrom has launched “Luna Twilight.” You’ll get the blood stained lips, glistening skin and smoky eyes. It’s definitely time to see what all this Twilight mania is all about, and starting with makeup is right up my alley!

Makeup Makeover!

November 5, 2009

My tan skin has now turned pale and the makeup that I was wearing over the summer is just not doing the trick anymore, specifically my eye shadows, blushes and lipsticks/glosses. It’s time for a little makeover and with all the new cosmetic sets out there, it seems as though I’ll have plenty to choose from.

What colors are you looking to show off this winter? Will you buy them as a present for yourself (you deserve it!) or will you receive it from a loved one?

The wait is over! Get bigger, bolder lashes NOW!

November 2, 2009

I have pretty small eyes, so I’m always on the look out for the next best thing that will make my eyes POP…and I think I found it! I grabbed a Maybelline “Great Lash BIG” in the drug store the other day, and I’m telling you…it works! My eyelashes look longer and fuller, allowing for a bolder look. I’m a fan and for just $6, I say it’s worth a try. Report back and let me know what you think!

What’s in your makeup case?

I was getting ready for work this morning and started to go through all of my makeup. I have so many random things going on in my makeup case and realized that I’ve tried out all different types of cosmetics, everything from Revlon to Chanel, and I always end up going back to these reliable items below. You should definitely give them a try!

Clinique SuperPower Double Face Makeup just matches my skin to a T. It’s a powder/foundation combo, so it’s light on the face, but still gives you great coverage where you need it.

Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher – The color lasts all day and it adds the much needed color to my cheeks.

Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara – This mascara makes SUCH a difference, especially on those mornings that you could have used a few extra hours of shut eye. It makes my eyes look WAY bigger than they are and adds that extra pop to my face.

Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder – Adds the perfect “sun-kissed” glow! Doesn’t give you that orange, fake tan look, and last all day.

MAC Eye Shadows are my favorite! They have so many different colors to choose from and they are priced fairly, so it’s fun to play around with different combinations. “Da Bling” and “Star Violet”* are my go-to colors. *Note: Star Violet is more of a purple, doesn’t look like it on the site, but trust me!

MAC Eye Liner – I just bought this purple eyeliner (“Rave”) for a little twist, I’m loving it! But for day-to-day I use black (“Smolder”).

What do you use for this daily ritual? Do you switch it up or do you stick to what works? Do you buy based on price or quality (or both)? Do you wear makeup at all? What’s in your beauty bag?

The one beauty product I couldn’t live without: Vaseline

June 25, 2009

Vaseline is without a doubt the #1 staple in my makeup case. There are so many different uses for Vaseline that I have accumulated one in every shape and size. Here’s what I use it for:

Eye makeup remover:
* I don’t believe that there is any need to buy the pricey eye makeup removers when you can easily scoop out some Vaseline, rub it on your eyes and wipe off with a tissue. It seriously works better than anything else I have ever tried.
Lip gloss:
*I carry a lip gloss sized one in my pocketbook for easy access while I’m hoppin around town.
*I also have a container on my desk at work and one on my nightstand at home just incase my lips get dry

Dry skin healer:
* It is the perfect remedy for dry hands and feet. It’s awesome to put on your heels. Put some socks on and this will add moisture to that very dry area.

Seriously, why spend $50 on expensive eye makeup removers or fancy foot creams when you can get just as great of a result from Vaseline for $2 – $5?

Do you use Vaseline as much as I do? If not, try it out…let me know how it goes!
