Makeup Tutorial for a Hooded Eye

I'm so excited to do my first makeup tutorial today!  When I used to work in a spa as an aesthetician, I also worked as a make up artist.

I love doing makeup!  It's amazing how even a small amount of makeup applied in the right way can bring out or disguise a person's features.  It truly is an art form!

Perfect your Pout with Tarte!

Finding the perfect lip gloss and lipstick is paramount, am I right?  How many times have you bought a lip gloss and it ends up being the wrong shade, too light, or no staying power?  For me it's often.  To be honest I'm always compromising my "beauty values" for lip products.  I know all the chemicals that are in most lipsticks but yet I still give in when I think I've found just the right color.

BB Cream-Friend or Frenemy??

BB creams have become extremely popular lately!  I honestly thought BB cream was the name of a foundation from Cover Girl.  I don't really stay up on products, clearly.  When every cosmetic company under the sun started coming out with BB cream, it became clear this was not just a Cover Girl thing.  Come to find out, BB cream is a really cool foundation/SPF/serum/moisturizer!  What a concept!  But-is it really that effective?  Does it work? BB cream is short for beauty balm or blemish balm.  … [Read more...]

Make Your Own Mineral Makeup

I have used mineral makeup for at least a decade now.  When Bare Minerals came out, I was amazed at how well it covered and that it was actually good for my skin.  Now, a decade later, I realize how simple it is to make!  While I don't really believe it's that beneficial to my skin, I do believe it's simple and free of harmful chemicals that are in other make up foundations.  Mineral make up is excellent for oily skin types and especially for sensitive skin.  Mineral makeup is not only gentle, … [Read more...]
