iman semi-loose powder.jpgIman Second To None Semi-Loose Powder is a new product that was just introduced to our beauty arsenal recently, and we are loving it. This mineral-infused powder comes in pressed form (making it ideal for travel), but is used as a loosed powder. This is thanks to a fine shaver that breaks the powder up right in the jar. Blended with corn silk and silk powder to provide an even-toned and shine-free finish, the formula can be worn alone or used for touch-ups throughout the day. $14.99 target.com
PROD_1046853_XL.jpg.jpegQuestion: I want to order the mineral foundation from Avon but I am afraid that it’s gonna start melting on my face. Will it? 

Mineral makeup is made to blend into skin and become like a “second skin”. So while it may blend into your skin, it won’t melt off. Also, just an added tip, remember when you apply it that less is always more when it comes to mineral makeup. You’ll really be surprised at how little you need.

The weather is heating up, and while you may be feeling the need to leave your foundation behind, you still want a glowing complexion, right? We love Rose Byrne’s glowing look, and think something like Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More would do the trick. This luminating primer glides on smoothly, helps to fill in pores and keeps skin clear with breakout-fighting tea tree oil. The best part about this primer is how it also imparts a translucent veil of tint, meaning you won’t need foundation. If you do have any unsightly spots or blemishes you’d like to cover, use a concealer after applying the primer. $45, sephora.com


We asked our friend and celebrity makeup artist, Melissa Walsh, to put together a fabulous and time-friendly routine to help you put together a look on Valentine’s Day that would be sure to make you feel and look your best. Whether you plan a romantic night out with the one you love, or a night out with the girls, don’t hesitate to try these tips (along with product suggestions), and have a great Love Day!

 

Melissa says:

“Start with a light serum that smooths the skin and sinks in immediately without leaving an oily residue - Janson Beckett Vitamin C&C Facial Serum ($44.50, spalook.com) is perfect for this.”

“Then, dust a powder foundation all over, being careful to blend well - Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder ($59, beauty.com) gives a really natural glow with great coverage.”

“Using a fluffy brush, swirl a sheen powder blush onto the apples of your cheeks - I love Cargo’s Catalina blush ($24, sephora.com) as it is a perfect pinky-coral shade.”

“As you don’t have much time, use one shade of eyeshadow all over the lid and into the crease; think soft sheeny, muted shades like taupe, heather and moss, and take it under the lower lashline too. Line the top lashes with a soft matte pencil and soften the edges with a cotton bud. A few coats of thickening mascara (try Lash Venom by DuWop, $24, sephora.com) finish the eyes.”

“For your lips use a stain or a cream tint like the ones by Jouer ($20, jouercosmetics.com ), which can also be used as a blush - Amaryllis is especially pretty - and smooth into the lips for a barely there flush.”

 

 

**Melissa’s tips if you only have 5 minutes:

“Spray your face with a refreshing mist like Caudalie Beauty Elixir (from $15, sephora.com), which I always use to smooth my skin and freshen my makeup after a long day. Let it dry for a few seconds and then, using a cream tint in a versatile shade like a soft gold or bronze, smooth onto eyelids, cheeks and lips. Lots of mascara for definition and a light colored eyeliner in the lower lashline will open up your eyes. You should be finished in less than 5 minutes but still will sweep your man off of his feet!”




benefit that gal.jpgThe winter season can leave our once bright complexions looking dull and lifeless. Since we’ve discovered Benefit “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer, we never have to accept that sad state of face!

“That Gal” is a silky pink primer that makes any skintone appear smoother and brighter. It can be worn alone for clear complexion radiance or applied before makeup for smooth, effortless application. We love that we can use it to also “re-brighten” later on during the day! It’s great if you need to re-do your makeup, but don’t have time to wash your face.

 

With soothing raspberry & chamomile, combined with sweet almond & algae extracts to help skin retain its natural moisture, “That Gal” only leaves our skin feeling soft and silky. We love that the light-reflecting pigments work to brighten our complexion with out being glittery— what can we say? We can’t get enough of it. Good bye dull skin! $28, sephora.com
