Happy Saturday Ladies!
The makeup shop I attended recently spent a lot if time talking about ways to get that dewy look on your skin through the winter months as well as all year long. I recently did a post on ways to get that glow, but there are certainly great products out there that can give you a shimmer highlight on the areas that are accented most , such as the cheeks and forehead. The big products in the beauty world these days are highlighters. I have used some great ones such as Becca , and I recently tried the wonderful ones from benefit.
I have to say that benefit sells some amazing products, but one of their great products is the highlighters. I use the Posie tint a lot, and it gives you the reflection of a dewy look, In the right amount of light. It also gives your cheeks color, without using blush and highlighter both. The highlighter is just enough when used the right way. One thing you do not want to do is apply to much , because it can look a bit crazy. When applying , make sure you use a makeup blender that is wet to blend it in perfectly to your foundation if you are wearing some. This is also great on days when you feel like going makeup free. Apply a bit of highlighter to your cheeks , and your good to go.
I’m sure you’ve all had those days , especially in the winter, where you just don’t feel like your skin looks that great, and it can tend to feel dry and have a lack of moisture in it. There are some great tips on giving your skin a healthy glow when your in a rush or feel as if you are having one of those days.
– don’t wear anything that is matte finish. Matte finish can really make you look washed out, or your wearing too much makeup. It even make you look a lot older. That matte power will settle in your wrinkles a lot worse.
– apply some concealer around the red areas on your face. This will conceal the redness, and give your face a more even out color.
– do not use powders. Powders are the worst thing on dry skin. Even if it’s not dry, you can give your skin a dried out look with powder. If you are one to use powders, use only in the T zone, lightly.
– dab some peach blush on the apples of your cheeks, or the newly peach highlighters you see in Sephora. They are wonderful and will instantly give your skin a sheen look to your skin. It gives your skin that flushed look.
– try to mix a little facial oil with your foundation, and it will give your skin a more dewy finish. Don’t overdue the facial oil, only a few drops.
Try misting at the end of your makeup session with some great facial mist such as the Evian spray. These tips will give your skin an extra boost in these winters cold monthes.
I absolutely love all the contouring kits out today. Today in the makeup world, it seems contouring is everywhere, and just using a little highlight here and there can really alter your face structure. I picked up the Too faced cocoa contour because it was used at the recent makeup workshop I attended recently. I do love Anastasia contour kit, as it includes many different colors that you can include in your highlighting. From celebrities to any star you see on tv these days, beauty bloggers included, contouring is bigger than it had ever been, and as a beauty blogger myself, it’s my job to try it and tell about it. This universal kit also includes a Buki brush, which you can use that to perfect your contouring with. It’s very important to understand that contouring is an art. There is no doubt about it. It’s very important to know, that to get that perfect look, it will take you a bit of time to ace the way you like it. You can look up you tube videos, and some of my favorite makeup artist include the gorgeous Hrush Achemyan. You can find her on you tube and on Instagram at Styledbyhrush. She’s literally amazing, and better yet , she is self taught. I love watching her videos. This contour kit will give you the right definition and perfection that you are trying to aquire. I’m sure of it.

Hi ladies !
Sensitive skin is on the rise, and I’m not the only one with it. From day One, Ive had to watch what I put on my face, and have spent numerous amounts of money trying to find the perfect skin care. One thing with sensitive skin is, you DO NOT want to over cleanse. Over cleansing will just wreak havoc on your skin. With the cold months here, its best to find the perfect non invasive skin care that isn’t too harsh on your skin. Over 51% of American women describe their skin as sensitive, which I feel includes everything from redness, itchiness, inflamed skin, breakouts, and more. I can bet that almost every woman or close has been allergic to certain brands, whether its the ingredients or the chemistry in which their skin is made up. Their is recent research that has been done that suggests that strengthening the top layer of your skin , can help any ingredients soak into the skin better, and therefore can prevent some sensitivity.
One component of sensitivity is inflammation of the skin. There are many things that can cause this besides certain ingredients. It can be pollution, stress, over exposure of the sun. There are many factors. You want to support your skins natural defense system, and that means finding a skin care routine that works. You should check out any gentle skin care regimens, and one thing you do not want to do is over exfoliate. This is a huge no-no, and can really make your skin overly tight, and almost a feeling of itchiness. Make sure any exfoliant you use, you read the directions first. Don’t pick one that aggravates the skin. Make sure you get one that is for sensitive skin. Do not over cleanse your face. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser, and do not use harsh scrubbing. This will once again irritate the skin, and make the redness worst, among all else. You want to nurture the skin’s PH, and help prevent cracking, and dryness, Make sure any makeup you use through the day is intended on your skin type. If you are one that heads to your local facialist monthly, make sure you know what kind of products she is using. A lot of products that are used in certain facials, depending on where you go, can be too harsh for your skin type, or they may use a brand that has maybe broken you out before. Make sure you know all products that are being used.
Some great products that are nice for sensitive skin are La solution 10 de chanel, which is great for dryness. This will add a bit of moisture back into your skin. Another great item is Laroche-posay cicaplast.
