Every now and then a product is released that pushes me to rethink my own makeup routine. Even the makeup artist can get in a makeup rut at times! The NAKED palette has totally revamped my morning face time. Urban Decay has put together twelve universally flattering neutrals in various textures ranging from glittery to matte. The shades begin with a soft cream and end up with a sultry black, and everything in between. All the shades work well together or on their own and they blend seamlessly. The NAKED palette comes with a fun case complete with inside mirror, eyeshadow brush, and travel size Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It’s nearly impossible to snag this palette since it is in such high demand, so if you see one on Sephora’s shelf or on UrbanDecay.com, grab it quick!

2012 Makeup Trends

January 26, 2012

With wedding season quickly approaching and spring just around the corner I thought we’d take a look at the latest makeup trends for 2012, and where better to look than Chanel. The array of colors can best be described as dawn and sunset shades from the Spring Harmony Collection. My favorite look is from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Shell pink lips, and coral blush all finished with an iridescent shimmer.

I always like to ask my clients about their normal, everyday makeup routine before I get started making their faces super fab. Majority of the time, the women I work with are used to choosing their products from Target or Walgreens and are easily sold on CoverGirl ads of Taylor Swift. I believe that when you find a product you love, you should stick to it, regardless of where it came from or how much it costs. But I do want to make mention of a few cosmetic lines you may be overlooking.

Tarte– Beauty products that pack a punch, but are still green, safe & healthy. Available online or at Sephora, you won’t be disappointment in their performance for your everyday makeup. Intro product: LipSurgence

Urban Decay– Makeup with spunk. UD has some unique items that will open new doors for your morning routine. Also available online or at Sephora, they are high pigment colors with pizzaz and products that address everyday issues such as eyecolor creasing. Intro product: The Naked Palette. A palette so fantastic, I’m devoting an entire blog post to it next week.

Dior– When you think luxury, you think Dior. These products are amazing quality and prefect for the girl who wants a couture look, even when she’s just going grocery shopping. Found online, at Sephora, or at department stores, this is a brand that oozes lavishness and boasts products that merge beauty and fashion. Intro product: DiorShow mascara.

So step out of the Maybelline box ladies and start exploring other lines that may have your next all time fav waiting for you!

This holiday season I thought it’d be nice to share some of my all time favorite products that I am so thankful for!

1- Origins Checks & Balances cleanser. Never has a cleanser been able to zap my oil, hydrate my dry spots, and lick every ounce of makeup off all in one sudsy wash. Plus, it has no scary junk in it. Perfect for all of us “in between” skin types.
2- Coconut Oil. It’s SO WONDERFUL for my legs after a shave. Or right before bed on my hands and feet. I smell delicious, it soaks right in, and it heals so well.
3- My scrubby brush. I don’t even know the technical name for this thing, but it has made my skin brighter and more even because of its gentle exfoliation.
4- Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I hate to admit I love this so much. I’m a big advocate for natural foundations, but this one has such a beautiful radiant finish, I can’t help but crave it. Gives your skin a healthy glow and covers all the uglies.
5- Urban Decay Naked Palette. So many universal neutral shades! Everything from super nude, so dark & glam. I use it almost daily.
