The Importance of a Good Eye Shadow Base/Primer- My Favorite Choice!

To me- applying an eye shadow base before applying make up is like brushing your teeth. It's absolutely necessary and NEEDS TO BE DONE!! I am surprised at how many people never use eye shadow primers. A good primer makes all the difference in the world when you want to create a really beautiful professional looking eye look. It helps your eye make  up last longer, prevents it from creasing, 

brings out the depth of the colors and makes your lid look more even and perfected. 

My favorite is "Painterly" Paint Pot from MAC Cosmetics. This is something I really don't go a day without. I have tried dozens of eye shadow primers and I'm still addicted to my Painterly. 

Please watch my short video I made talking about this  WONDERFUL product!

Run don't walk to get this for your lovely lids if you don't have it already. If you're going to a local MAC store (in the Twin Cities) , feel free to reach out to me for some other product recommendations and I can let the amazing girls that work there that you're coming in. ;)

Mood Magic Color Changing Lipstick GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Have any of you ever heard of mood rings? I’m sure you’re all saying, yes. Well, now there are mood lipsticks!!! When I found out about these color changing lipsticks I knew I had to try them out.  They are a little different then you’re typical mood ring. These lipsticks all turn one specific color once you apply them to your lips. The yellow turns coral, green turns pink and blue turns mauve. But- they are incredibly long lasting, feel very moisturizing and are lightweight on your lips.

Tangerine Lips for 2012

Hey Guys! I love playing around with lip colors!  I tend to lean more towards medium to hot pink colors. They have always just been my personal favorite to wear. But, I think this spring and summer tangerine lips are where it's at! :)

The new PANTONE 2012 color of the year was named and it is: Tangerine Tango!

This means, bust out your best orange lip shade and rock it. There are ALL different shades of orange so I'm sure you can find one that you feel comfortable in. Maybe even a peachy orange gloss? Or, a red orange lipstick. 

 

If you don't want to do tangerine lips do your nails or accessories in this awesome color!!!

Talk about Cute Packaging- Boots No.7 Poppy King Limited Edition Lipstick Collection

Hey Guys! Have you been to your local Target and seen the display with these on it??

Look at how adorable this packaging is! I absolutely love bright colors, and polka dots, together they look amazing! This is a limited edition lipstick and lip gloss collection from boots No.7 and Poppy King. King is an Australian entrepeneur who is best known for her company Poppy Industries and her range of cosmetics. King was inspired by Marilyn Monroe for these lipsticks and glosses. 

I tried the shade "glamour", in both the  lipstick and gloss. It is a very sophisticated pink color. Not only has this lipstick formula been one of my favorites, the color is one that I've been wearing all the time. I LOVE it. It has a really pretty sleek purple tube.

The gloss is a really pretty everyday color but is not as long wearing as some other glosses I like. However, it is a really nice sheer formula for something very natural and easy to wear. 

I will definitely be going back to look at the other shades of lipsticks since I love the formula so much. It's very creamy, not too shiny , not too matte and has great color pay off. Here are some photos of what the color "glamour" looks like on. :)

Great Finds in June -Hands and Nails

Hi Beautiful Friends ! I appreciate all of your subscriptions and entries in my latest giveaway for Breda Watches! I will draw a winner in about a week and I'm very excited for one of you to win. Here is the link if you have not yet entered! http://lovelo.wordpress.com/2011/06/13/trendy-affordable-breda-watch-giveaway/

I want to share with you guys some of my great finds for keeping your nails and hands looking more beautiful. These discoveries will most likely be in my collection for a long time. 

Garden Botanika Skin Renewing Hand Treatment with AHA complex. This is a silky smooth hand lotion that really helps "repair" my dry hands. I actually keep this in my car to use every time I'm driving or going to and from work. I do this because then I know I will use it and I'm adding moisture to my hands and nails. This hand treatment has a very sweet citrus scent and leaves my hands feeling soft!  I also use this to rub into my cuticles for healthier nails!

Orly PolishSheild and Orly Flash Dry. Both of these contribute to shiny longer lasting polish! The Polish shield is a 3 in 1 topcoat that helps protect, prevent chipping, and add shine to polish. It is a quick drying formula and helps with color fading. 

The orly flash dry comes in a dropper bottle. This product helps accelerate recently polished nails. You just apply one or two drops over your polished nails to help it dry faster and keep the color locked in. This REALLY works. It speeds up drying time!!

I also picked up a nail color, that may not be so "summer-ish" but it's a beautiful color. It's OPI's Jade is the new black. I LOVE this color. 

Have a great night everyone!

Polka Dot Nail Files, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear

Hey Guys! So, recently I've been trying out SEVERAL different brands of nail polish from Target to see which Target brand lasts the longest, doesn't chip as fast and has a great selection of colors. Now, this does not include the Essie polish, or Nicole by OPI or any of those higher end nail polish brands they now sell at Target. This is exclusively those under $4.99.

My winner hands down has been Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. I love the applicator, the colors it comes in, and it definitely wears the longest. It is also a very high shine polish, and is pretty opaque. I never felt like I needed more than 1 or 2 coats, from the colors that I chose, (I've tried about 5 different shades). They come in many colors and retail for $2.99.  That is a great price compared to most nail polish brands out there!

The other day when I was at Target I needed a nail file...I didn't want to spend very much and I found this pack of 3 polka dotted files for $.99! :) Then, I got home and tried to take a photo and this is what happened...

Hot Pink for Summer 2011

Hi Guys! What is your favorite lip and nail color this season?? Do you have one shade that never fails you?

I don't know what it is..but I am loving HOT PINK. Hot pink for lips and hot pink for  nails! Maybe it's all of the ad's with bold bright lips for summer or the fact that I'm so ready for loud color this season. :)

I wanted to show you all some inspirational photos
