It's even better when I get something I haven't tried before. Like makeup from CIRCA Beauty, a cruelty free makeup line that's affordable, long wearing, trendy, Read more

Sunscreen Pills - Do They Really Work?

With increasing frequency, I'm finding that I'm getting pitched more often to review sunscreen pills and drinks. I am a true skeptic when it comes to replacing what I know already works (topical sunscreen), and has worked for YEARS, with something so new that claims the same benefits. So Read more

Pur Minerals Art Decadence Collection Review


 


With summer fast approaching right around the corner and warmer weather, I know I’ll be spending a lot more time outside. With that being said, I like to keep my makeup simple and easy. A sun-kissed face may give us the color we need, but when it’s unbearably hot, you sweat off all of your makeup. I’m already starting to get irritable just thinking about it!

Rae Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette Review

I have only just recently started incorporating eyeshadows into my makeup routine.  I’ll maybe use it once or twice a month unless I have a shoot and it’s being expertly applied to my eyelids by a professional.

The reason why I have shied away from eyeshadow until now is because I was always terrified of not blending correctly and looking rather clownish, plus the colors that I have tried in the past either had too much pigment or not enough and I didn’t feel like I had the skill set to apply them without looking overly made-up.

Recently, however I’ve been experimenting more with makeup and have gotten more confident in my skills…or rather the skills I have borrowed from the various amazing make-up artists I have had the pleasure of working with, and have started experimenting more with my eye makeup.  I now have a few favorite brands of eyeshadows, but I’m always looking to add a few more to the list of favorites.   Read more

Makeup Review: GloMinerals GloBlush

I find myself in the market for a new blush only every so often. Like most women, I have my staple products that I know and love (hel-lo Nars Torrid blush), but I do like to test out new products once in a while to make sure I’m not missing out on anything.

I was excited to learn about GloMinerals products. A beauty brand comparable to the beloved Bare Escentuals line, GloMinerals promise flawless skin with oil-free, light reflecting pigments, and SPF of 15 in most products.  Personally, I’ve always felt mineral makeup is the way to go.  It’s good for your skin and always leaves a natural, radiant finish…not to mention it’s incredibly easy to apply.

Thanks to my Irish roots, I have very fair skin with naturally pink undertones. For this reason I tend to select peach-toned blushes to play down any redness and add a hint of bronze glow to brighten up my face (especially during those sun-deprived, vacation-less winter months).

I selected GloBlush in Nectar – a peachy powder with a nude shimmer. When applied to my cheekbones and blended out to my temples, it highlighted my face nicely and gave a nice natural glow for daytime. I loved the color as a simple everyday look, and am definitely planning on trying their powder cheek stain (yes, a powder stain!) for a more bold look in the future.

Check out the GloMinerals website to view all products. If you need another reason to go shopping, the site promises a free gift with purchases over $150.00. Have you tried any of GloMinerals makeup?
