A woman should always have a good eye cream in her beauty arsenal. Recently I gave Kiss My Face Eye Witness Eye Repair Crème a test run and have continued to use it daily ever since. I like how it feels when I put it on and I like the effect it has even more. I swear my eyes seem brighter and the skin’s definitely more supple and soft. And one of the best parts of the Kiss My Face products are the natural ingredients. I’m a sucker for skin care that repairs without layering on more toxins.

While her Grammys dress was anything but demure — Katy Perry’s makeup was more on the modest side of things thanks to makeup artist Jake Bailey, who used Rimmel London products to create this natural, simple look.

Starting with her eyes, Jake used Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black to define Katy’s lower lash line. Then he used Rimmel London’s Glam Eyes Eyeshadow Trio in Orion to add depth and contour to Katy’s eyelids. As a highlighting step, then he used Rimmel London’s Scandal Eyes Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige, on her eyelid and brow bone. Lastly he finished her off eye look with Rimmel London’s Scandal Eyes Mascara in Black. 

Even the most natural of looks often includes extra work, so Jake evened out Katy’s skin with a custom base, by using a mixture of 1/3 Rimmel London BB Cream in Light with 2/3 Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in Nude. “The BB Cream sheers the foundation out and gives it a little glow,” Jake said about the effect he created. Every red carpet look requires the right flush, so Jake used a dusting of Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush in Pink Rose on the apples of her cheeks. 

And last but not least, Katy’s look was topped off with a lining of Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lipliner in Natural, and a coat of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Crush.
I have always found that lengthening mascara formulas worked better for my thin, barely-there lashes … that is until I tried out Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Mega Plush. There are so many things I adore about this mascara that I don’t know quite where to begin. The formula is so light and airy, Maybelline calls it a gel-mousse, I call it perfect — it glides right on to my lashes and doesn’t clump along the way. The wand has a flexor tip that gives just a little to let the brush adequately get to every lash. And the end result is killer lashes that never quit, it’s so good in fact that sometimes I wear just the mascara nothing else (on my face, of course!). Oh and the clincher is that it’s not impossible to get off at the end of the day!

The Goody Finish Gel Cushion Brush is part of the Goody Start. Style. Finish. line of hair brushes. And it’s probably my favorite of the entire collection. Its bristles are both ionic to help minimize frizz and made of tourmaline to prevent static, and it also has a great, comfy gel cushion handle that makes holding it so effortless. This is my favorite brush for after I’ve blown my hair dry and just curled the ends under, as it smooths my fly-aways and locks in the shine and style.

In the winter my skin needs the thicker, creamier kind of body wishes that feel like they seep into skin and leave you moisturized. But in the summer all that feels like too much. That’s why Dove created their Summer Care Nourishing Body Wash, it’s a lightweight formula that packs the same moisturizing punch but without feeling heavy on skin. It’s the perfect way to get clean this summer.

Buy Dove Summer Care Nourishing Body Wash for $7 at most local drugstores and grocery stores.
