Maybelline® The NUDES Eye Shadow Palette!

27 Jul

I tried it and I really like it!  I’ve always been daring with colors, that’s why I’m in LOVVVEEE with Maybelline’s COLORsenstional LIPCOLOR in “Make Me Pink“.

So when Maybelline® NEW YORK announced that a new eye shadow palette was coming out a few months ago called The NUDES, I said I would give it a try!

Maybelline® is a beauty brand that has a spectrum of colors which can be popular with any skin tone!

In The NUDES palette, there are 12 shades, which can give you 13 looks.  The shades are described as bold beiges, sultry sands, brazen bronzes, and over the top taupes.  Using it finally; I’d found it instantly to be a HIT!!!!!!

Here is my look that I’d achieved yesterday for a summer evening; getting ready for a night out in SoHo NYC!  I’d just wanted to show you my results with the palette’s shades on my complexion! Added eyeliner and my standby eyelashes……..AMAZING!

Here are Maybelline®’s promotional videos on the many looks. You may even recognize a few of the popular beauty vloggers from YouTube!  Maybelline has even provided their choices for tutorials!   Have fun and if you try the palette; please let me know what you think!

No Guilt Anymore! “makeup only™” Towels!

26 Jul

black makeup towel

I wear makeup daily and make it a practice to wash my face thoroughly in the evening before going to bed; without even giving it a thought!

However, when I am away;  either on vacation or staying at a friend’s house  I do worry about my makeup stains that would be left on their towels!

wash faceYes, I do use the makeup towelettes; but there is still residue left on your face and you have to do a thorough cleaning!  You should continue to keep up with your skincare regimen while away.

So, I just found out about these “makeup only™” black wash cloths!!!  I now pack a couple in my suitcase and really have no more regrets!  No more worries for me!

The Turkish Towel Company sells them for a set of 6 and the wash cloths are 13″ x 13″; 100% cotton.

makeuptowel2These would also be a great for a gift, even place in your home’s guest room to set some ease!

A special touch for my makeup artist friends to use on their clients!

I’ve been told some hotels and bread & breakfast inns are in on it too; placing them in their bathrooms!

All such great ideas!

The Turkish Towel Company encompasses a combined 50-plus years of towel know-how. This partnership marries American design, development, and marketing experience to the world-renowned skills and quality of Turkish towel manufacturing. The result is unsurpassed style and quality in every towel that they produce.

Bronzer, the Summer Must! @Forever21

26 May

Hello everyone! I’ve received many emails questioning the bronzer I’d used from a Instagram photo I’d posted while away on my mental break in Cancun, Mexico!

The one which I’d practically fell in love with was Forever21’s Love & Beauty All Over bronzer!

Picked it up by chance and I’m so, so glad I did!

Absolutely beautiful at the beach! I’d even put it on my collarbone and hint on my shoulders; when dining out!

Forever21 Love & Beauty ALL OVER Bronzer

The best way to build up bronzer is to start below the cheekbone, closer towards the ear and lightly diffuse it outwards toward the cheek to blur out edges.

Then, sweep the brush to hit the high planes of the face (check, forehead, and chin) using a figure-3 sweeping motion.

Do the same on the other side and then finish down the nose!

Bronzer…..It’s wonderful for all skin tones.  A must get item for the upcoming summer fun; you’ll be hooked!!!!
