Makeup Tips
  • Opt for Luminous skin. Apply moisturizer. Apply foundation/tinted moisturizer. I prefer tinted moisturizer.
  • Concealer to cover any dark circles, blemishes.
  • Add a blush and highlighter. Set everything with a powder. I have an oily t-zone, so I always start to set my face with powder in the center

Do You Have A Favorite Place To Shop For Makeup?

Today’s question is do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup? I know I do. More on that later. Sephora, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Ulta, Bluemercury, so many choices. All have similar brands, products to offer with respect to beauty and skincare. Some have more of high end products and others have a mix of drugstore brands and department store brands.

MUFE Ultra HD Foundation

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation Swatches

As you all know I love getting samples. I received this foundation sample card from Sephora. Sephora offers 2 samples with every purchase and I selected this foundation sample card. This Make up Forever Ultra HD Foundation card has 4 shades to try out. It is a nice way to see where in the range you fall. You can make better informed decisions when you actually go to the store to get color matched or to make a purchase.

Tom Ford Cream Color For The Eyes

Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes Review

William Shakespeare said that the “The Eyes are the window to your soul.” We can convey a lot of information just through our eyes, without actually speaking a word. Therefore it makes perfect sense to keep our eyes, the windows to our soul looking sultry and mysterious sometimes, fresh and bright sometimes. Keep changing our look! Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes will help you achieve your goal. The shades I will review are Platinum, Spice, Pink Haze and Midnight Violet.

According to the Sephora Website Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes is “ A smooth, luxurious, no-crease, no-smudge cream …

Kaja Beauty Eyeshadow Trio and Lip & Cheek Duo

Now with the pandemic going on and everyone wearing masks, my focus has shifted from lipsticks, lip-glosses, and lip-balms to eyeshadows. I was on the Sephora website looking for something. I don't remember what, but as usual something else caught my eye. It was the cutely packaged Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio and the Kaja Cutie Bento Creamy Lip & Cheek Duo. Today I have the eyeshadow trio in shade Glowing Guava and the Creamy Lip & Cheek in the shade Sweet Sangria.

Are samples important to you

How important are samples to you?

A fun fact for you. Did you know that Honey never expires. Because of its chemical composition honey never spoils. 5,000 year old honey has been found and it is still edible, but honey has to be natural and sealed properly to enjoy its long lifespan. Isn’t that amazing. Coming back to today's topic…samples. I love samples. Getting them, trying them on and deciding whether they result in a purchase or no, is so thrilling and an effortless way to tempt customers. How important are samples to you?

NARS Madly Blush

Nars Madly- My Most Loved Blush Review

I personally feel that the blush sometimes gets mothballed as a non consequential, minor component of our makeup routine, compared to the more predominant lipsticks and eyeshadows. But blush has been around for centuries. Ancient civilizations use dyes mixed with fat, mulberries, beet juice, crushed strawberries, flower petal extracts to get that healthy flush of color. Cosmetics also had dangerous levels of cancer causing lead in them. Over the years things have changed and now we have the power of science behind us and we are changing for the better. Now back to NARS Madly blush.

Wet N Wild Nude Awakening Palette

Wet n Wild Coloricon Nude Awakening Palette Review

I love a good, neutral eyeshadow palette. Who doesn’t? Today we will review the Wet n Wild Coloricon 10 eyeshadow palette in Nude Awakening. Oh, the thrill of finding a bargain, and if it works well, then it's a total win win situation. When this palette first came out, I was not tempted to buy it, as I thought I had many other neutral palettes. But as they say you can never have too many neutral shades of makeup. So on one trip to Target I gave in and picked it up.

Holiday Red Lipsticks

Holiday Red Lips with Hourglass, NARS, MAC and Tom Ford Lipsticks

A fun fact for you. Hewlett-Packard’s (also known as HP) name was decided in a coin toss in 1939. The name was always going to be a hyphenation of the two founders' last names, so in order to decide between Hewlett-Packard and Packard-Hewlett, they flipped a coin. I wish I could decide between colors by flipping a coin. Red or Nude… umm flip a coin!

Today I have some similar looking red lipsticks for you. But to a self proclaimed beauty addict, these have subtle differences and that to me justifies my purchases. To type the word similar looking here …

Fenty Beauty Items Review

Are you wearing makeup during quarantine? Our situation has changed so much in the past few months. From getting ready for work every morning, we went to Google classrooms and google meets, zoom calls etc. Did your makeup routine change? Mine did, definitely! I used to love my morning routine and these days things have changed a lot. On days that I have to look presentable a bit of concealer, a mattifying powder, mascara and lip balm always do the trick. As for me, I am not doing foundation much, paying more attention to skincare etc. Let me know in …
