Sephora News: BEAUTY BRAND, MELT COSMETICS is Available ONLINE NOW, and IN STORES at Sephora on June 7th!!

Hello, Beauties!

So, even though Melt Cosmetics has been around since 2012, it’s an insanely HUGE accomplishment to be recognized, as well as contracted, by the OG of Beauty Brand Retailers, Sephora. And the best part? Melt Cosmetics’ pigment packed, gorgeous color assortments, and ALWAYS SOLD OUT Eyeshadow Palettes, Twenty Seven, Gemini, and Smoke Obsessions, will now have THREE different retailers (http://www.Sephora.com, http://www.MeltCosmetics.com, and IN STORE at Sephora on 6/7) that will (most likely) have them IN STOCKBUT as of right now, Gemini and Smoke Obsessions are STILL SOLD OUT online at http://www.Sephora.com…. But now you can sign up to be notified when Sephora RESTOCKS these gorgeous and DREAMY AF Eyeshadow Palettes! AND Twenty Seven is available AND IN STOCK as of RIGHT NOW, on http://www.Sephora.com! YAY!

Haven’t had the chance to brush up on all the deets of Melt Cosmetics? Here’s a run-down; Melt Cosmetics was founded by two, #BadAF women, Lara Arellano and Dana Bomar, who set out to cater to the daringly different, AND set the bar for quality, as well as quantity. I mean, if you look at the pan sizes of ANY Melt Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette OR Shadow Stack, you get WAY MORE product than most Beauty Brands tend to offer. And the quality? Hands down, some of the most pigmented products I’ve used. From Melt’s Ultra Matte Lipsticks, to their All Day/Everyday Lip Liners (which are BETTER than Kylie Cosmetics’ Lip Liners as far as long wear, pigment, and product go), Melt offers shades for the TRENDSETTERS of the Makeup and Fashion Industry. Other products Melt Cosmetics offers are Liquid Set Lipsticks, Metal Lip Gloss, Iridescent Lipsticks, Matte Lipsticks (different than the Ultra Matte Lipsticks), All Day/Everyday Eye Liners, Ultra Matte Eyeshadow Singles, Metallic Eyeshadow Singles, Pressed Pigments, Digital Dust Highlighters, Blushes, Blushlights, Eyeshadow Palettes, and Eyeshadow Stacks (which contain 4 to 5 Matte OR Metallic Eyeshadows OR Pressed Pigments, and a Mirror for on the go touch-ups). So, if you haven’t experienced the FULL Melt Cosmetics immersion of Pigment + Cutting Edge Colors, here are some of my FAVE Melt Cosmetics items, PLUS some of their TOP SELLING PRODUCTS. And I guarantee, after seeing some of these GORGEOUS little numbers, you will be heading STRAIGHT to Sephora on June 7th, to play!

BTW: Melt Cosmetics’ Gemini Palette AND She’s In Parties Eyeshadow Stack is AVAILABLE NOW on http://www.MeltCosmetics.com… and BELIEVE ME- these WILL SELL OUT! So hurry and get yours ASAP!

TAN Bronze & Glow Palette

UM?! How GORGE is the Natasha Denona TAN Bronze & Glow Palette?! A close relative to Natasha Denona’s BLOOM Blush & Glow Palette, the TAN Bronze & Glow Palette will help you achieve the Bronze, Contour, Highlight, and GLOW of your DREAMS. And it’s been released RIGHT IN TIME FOR SUMMER! A #NatashaDenonaApproved Bronze, Beautiful, AND Glow-y Palette?! YES PLEASE.

Natasha Denona’s TAN Bronze & Glow Palette, has four shades of Bronze GORGEOUSNESS which includes a Glow Cream Base, which primes/preps your skin for Highlighting, to give your high points THE ULTIMATE, multifaceted GLOW, AND ensures that your Highlight/Glow, will last ALL DAY. The Glow Impact Powder is a highly pigmented Highlighting shade, which when applied over the Glow Cream Base, gives an INTENSE, pigment packed, highlight, that’s buildable. It can also be worn alone for a more natural glow/highlight. The Blush & Bronze Powder, is a UNIVERSAL Bronzer shade, that can be worn as a Blush OR a Bronzer. I use the Blush & Bronze Powder to Contour, because I have a Lighter Skin Tone, but Darker Skin Tones can use the Blush & Bronze Powder, to BRONZE all over, Contour, etc. The Super Glow (cream based) shade, is the PERFECT “in between” shade, between the Glow Impact Powder, and the Blush & Bronze Powder, and helps create the perfect BLEND into each shade. Darker Skin Tones can use this shade as a Highlighter, or it can be used UNDER the Blush & Bronze Powder as a Base, for longer lasting color, and a multi-dimensional Bronze/Contour.

I purchased the TAN Bronze & Glow Palette as soon as it came out, and I’m absolutely IN LOVE with it! I recommend using a BeautyBlender or makeup sponge, to apply the cream based shades (Glow Cream Base & Super Glow), as well as the Glow Impact Powder. The Glow Impact Powder is best applied when PRESSED into the skin, which is why application with a BeautyBlender or makeup sponge, is better. I use a thin, flat, contouring brush (Sonia Kashuk), to apply the Blush & Bronze Powder, but be forewarned- it’s HIGHLY PIGMENTED. So a little goes a LONG WAY, but I’m not complaining! I’m just saying- what you see is what you get! The TAN Bronze & Glow Palette is my new GO TO Bronzing/Highlighting Palette for Summer, and I definitely have been using it NON STOP! PLUS; Natasha Denona’s TAN Bronze & Glow Palette has earned 5 STARS on http://www.Sephora.com, and 100% of users RECOMMEND this product! So that in itself, speaks VOLUMES about this gorgeous and pigmented palette!

Although Bobbi Brown’s Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation isn’t new, and neither is Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Bobbi Brown’s Prep & Perfect Skin Long Wear Customizable Set IS NEW. And truly- what’s better than just one Bobbi Brown product? TWO Bobbi Brown products!

Bobbi Brown’s Prep & Perfect Long Wear Customizable Set contains ONE, FULL SIZE, Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, which doubles as a Primer AND Moisturizer in ONE, and ONE, FULL SIZE, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Weightless Foundation, in the shade of your choice! Buying these products separately, costs $106, so for only $69 you’re saving a total of $37… And you can use the $37 you saved, for ANOTHER, MUST HAVE product at Sephora! Or you can just save the $37…. It’s totally up to you, because of course it is! But I’m #JustSayin.

ANYWAYSBobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Weightless Foundation works well with Normal, Oily, and Combination Skin Types, and it has an SPF 15 for sun protection. Long-Wear Weightless Foundation is FULL COVERAGE, so it conceals, perfects, and protects your pretty face! The matte finish ensures long wear time, and controls oil. It pairs perfectly with Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base, which helps control redness, smooths skin, and moisturizes without any greasy additives. It creates a smooth canvas for Foundation application, and protects your Foundation from sweat, humidity, oil, or any extra moisture. And, as always, EVERY Bobbi Brown product is CRUELTY FREE!

Bobbi Brown’s Prep & Perfect Long Wear Customizable Set is available for a LIMITED TIME, ONLINE ONLY, at http://www.Sephora.com!

Huda Kattan, the reigning QUEEN of Huda Beauty, has released another MUST HAVE product (because of course she has), that helps perfect, blur, and adds a shimmering, glow, to your face, legs, arms, chest, (or wherever you choose to apply it), and makes your body look FLAWESS AF. The product? N.Y.M.P.H (Not Your Mama’s Pantyhose) Face & Body Highlighter!

N.Y.M.P.H Face & Body Highlighter comes in three different, skin perfecting shades, that are anything BUT ordinary; Luna, Aphrodite, & Aurora. Each shade caters to Light, Medium, and Dark Skin Tones, and is WATER Based, Transfer/Water Resistant, AND Hydrating, which will moisturize and help your skin recover from those long, hot, sunny days. It doesn’t tug or stick to dry patches, and it gives your skin a GORGEOUS, warm, and flawless glow! The effect imitates a “pantyhose-covered” leg look, but without the extra layer of fabric (think HOT AF Summer temps), and an added shimmering sheen! It’s also the perfect body bronzer for achieving a gorgeous tan, without the UV Ray damage, AND without the orangey streaks that self tanner can sometimes leave. It washes off after use, so you can go out and look like a GOLDEN GODDESS one night, and be back to your natural skin shade the next day!

Huda Beauty also released the N.Y.M.P.H Blur & Glow Brush ($33 http://www.Sephora.com) for N.Y.M.P.H Face & Body Highlighter application perfection! The formula/coverage IS buildable, so whether you’re looking for a subtle touch of glow, or a full coverage GLOW-glow, then the N.Y.M.P.H Blur & Glow Brush will help you achieve the look you’re going for!

A few things come to mind when I look at Cover FX’s Monochromatic Matte + Shimmer Bronzer Duos; Multifaceted, GORGEOUS, and RICH AF Pigment… Each shade is pretty much #ToDieFor. The pigment/hues in the Monochromatic Matte + Shimmer Bronzing Duos is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and one of a kind! These powder based Bronzing Duos are meant to catch light on your high points, and bronze/contour your cheek bones, and bring out your unique face structure, with GORGEOUS, Summertime hues. And the best part? Each shade is so unique, that it’s hard to compare other products to Cover FX’s Monochromatic Matte + Shimmer Bronzing Duos, so you can feel confident in NOT looking basic.

Cover FX offers two different, and pigment packed shades; Sunkissed Bronze and Suntan Bronze, which can be used to Contour, Highlight, Bronze, and Beautify, to your heart’s desire. And even though there are only two different shades, which compliment Light Medium, Medium, Medium Dark, and Lighter Dark Skin Tones for Bronzing & Highlighting, these shades are GORGEOUS for Contouring and Blushing/Blush Topping on Light Skin Tones, and STUNNING as Matte + Shimmery Highlighters, Blush/Blush Topping on Dark Skin Tones, which provides a FLAWLESS Matte + Shimmery Highlight for Very Dark, & Ebony Skin Tones. Whatever Skin Tone you have, you can use at least ONE of the two shades offered, for some type of Makeup Application- These bronze based hues even look GORGEOUS on eyes! Richly unique hues  like these, only come around every once in a while, so take advantage of these shades while you have the chance!

How cute is KKW’s Wedding Anniversary tribute to husband, Kanye West?! KKW Beauty released the Mrs. West Collection, on Friday, and the Mrs. West Collection SET ($100) SOLD OUT in less than 7 minutes! The good news is, you can buy some of the products from the Mrs. West Collection SET, by themselves, RIGHT NOW, on http://www.KKWBeauty.com, like the Love Lipstick ($18), Soulmate Gloss ($18), and the Forever Highlighter ($20), which is my personal FAVE. AND THERE WILL BE A RESTOCK! Just sign up to be notified on http://www.KKWBeauty.com, under each product listing that’s SOLD OUT!

So now that we’ve CONFIRMED that there WILL be a restock (despite rumors), let’s talk about the products from KKW Beauty’s Mrs. West Collection! KKW Beauty’s Mrs. West Collection contains six different Bridal Makeup (or natural, daytime, or soft) DREAM products, like the Mrs. West Palette ($30) – a six pan, highly pigmented, matte AND metallic, eyeshadow palette, that’s a mix of, “Universal Neutrals”, that look flattering on EVERY skin tone! The Love Lipstick ($18), is a neutral peachy pink nude, and goes hand in hand with the matching Love Lip Liner ($12), which can be used to line and contour your pout!! The Flower Wall Blush ($18) is a mid-tone pink, that’s buildable for more intense color/coverage, and is velvety, creamy, and highly pigmented. This shade is, again, flattering on all skin tones. The Soulmate Gloss ($18) is a, “blushing nude with light gold pearl”, and has a high gloss finish. KKW’s application method is this; “Begin application at the center of the lips and then blend outward for a high shine finish”. The Forever Highlighter ($20) is a creamy, powder based highlighter, that is a, “shimmering champagne gold”. The end result is a soft and shimmering, luminous light, that gives you a natural but pigmented GLOW– not frosty or too glittery, which is why I say this entire collection is PERFECT for Bridal Makeup Looks!

Diorshow Pump N’ Brow is a multifaceted brow mascara that plumps, tames, and perfects your brows. It’s packaged in a squeezable tube, so you can squeeze the perfect application amount onto the eyebrow wand, and brush up! My favorite feature/benefit that Diorshow Pump N’ Brow offers, is flexible, natural looking brow mascara, that keeps brows in check ALL DAY– never stiff or sticky. AND it doesn’t flake off! It’s also water resistant, so it lasts through the workday AND through your night; whether you go to the gym, on a date, out for Happy Hour, or my personal favorite, #NetflixNChill. Either way, you’re good to go!

The Satin Skin Mist

SatinSkinMist_575

There’s no doubt that Tatcha is one of the BEST (Newer) Beauty & Skin Care Companies in the Industry. And as far as product releases go, I don’t think Tatcha will be slowing down anytime soon (thank the BEAUTY Goddesses)- especially since Megan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, let the world know that she’s OBSESSED with the Beauty/Skin Care Brand, which focuses on clean ingredients, and adds skin care, to your Makeup Routine/Products.

Tatcha is a Japanese based Beauty Brand, that’s responsible for some of the most GAME CHANGING Beauty products, like Tatcha’s The Silk Canvas Filter Finish Protective Primer, and Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, as well as Tatcha’s The Water Cream, Violet C Serum, and POLISHED Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. Tatcha focuses mainly on Skin Care, and get it’s inspiration from ingredients once used by Geishas, which are known to have THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SKIN, ever! So really… How can you go wrong with NATURAL ingredients that have stood the test of time?

So what’s so great about Tatcha’s *NEW* The Satin Skin Mist?? It’s a liquid powder skin mist, that’s OIL FREE, and made with Okinawa Clay, which purifies, mattifies, and helps REDUCE clogged pores!! You absolutely CANNOT beat that! It also absorbs excess oil throughout the day! Other ingredients include Japanese Wild Rose, AND Japanese Seagrass, which actually BALANCES your hydration levels, (think oil reduction), minimizes the look of pores, AND improves skin texture over time! The Satin Skin Mist also contains Tatcha’s Hadasei-3 Complex, which is a blend of anti-aging superfoods that help detoxify skin, reduce water retention, and fights signs of aging!

If that isn’t reason enough to purchase this, on the Cosmetic side of the spectrum, The Satin Skin Mist, also SETS Makeup, and helps makeup last FOR HOURS! It won’t disturb the set of your Makeup, and it also doesn’t DRY OUT the set of your makeup, even though it’s suggested for Very Oily, to Oily, and Combination Skin Types. And since Summer is here, and temps are heating up, this is a great option for a SUMMERTIME Makeup Setting Mist, for EVERY Skin Type, not only because it mattifies the skin, but it also absorbs all of the excess oil that can mess with the finish of your Foundation/Makeup, due to sweat, humidity, pool/beach days, etc.

Tatcha’s The Satin Skin Mist, as well as each and every Tatcha Beauty creation, is “Clean At Sephora” Certified (which is extremely difficult to achieve), and ALWAYS Cruelty Free! All of Tatcha’s packaging is also recyclable, so you can feel good about your purchase, not just on the outside, but on the inside!

There are SO MANY Beauty Brands that release Mascaras that claim to “make a difference”… But only a few of said Mascaras REALLY DO make a difference. And Laura Mercier’s Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara is one of those. The difference? Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara focuses on, not only VOLUME, but SOFTNESS. Laura Mercier ensures users that their lashes will feel soft, not clumpy or gunk-y, like a lot of other Mascaras can make your lashes feel. And if you’re like me, I seriously cannot stand when my lashes feel gunk-y or overly stiff. And a lot of Beauties don’t realize that overly stiff/gunk-y lashes can lead to lash breakage and fallout. Lashes are DELICATE. So when a heavy, gunk-y Mascara is applied, it can really wear them down and create lash fallout, which is NEVER a good thing.

Laura Mercier’s Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara has an innovative brush, with “Lash Hugging Helix Technology”, which makes sure your Mascara doesn’t flake, clump, or smudge. Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara is also part of Laura Mercier’s Caviar Volume Collection, which also includes Caviar Intense Ink Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, and the Artist Eyelash Curler, to give your eyes a BOLD and GORGEOUS pop!

It’s also PACKED with Antioxidants.

The BEST way to apply Major Glow Highlighting Mist, is to SHAKE BEFORE USE (obviously), and then hold the aerosol style packaging, SIX inches away from your face (or chest, etc.) for a multifaceted and light reflecting, FLAWLESS Glow/Highlight. After misting on the Major Glow Highlighting Mist, let the product set and dry completely, on your face, chest, high points, etc. Now, GLOW GIRL. GLOW.

Do you know how many times I have ran around my house, looking for a fan, window, or anywhere else that provides a source of air, when I’m trying to SET my face with my GO TO Setting Spray?! I, of course, always SPRAY n’ SET, before I actually am in front of an air source (#BlameItOnMyADHD) which leads to me, running around frantically, so my Setting Spray doesn’t drip! UGH. Patrick Ta gets it. Right, Patrick? Plus… who WOULDN’T want a pretty little Blush PINK/Rose Gold, Major Glow Setting Fan, sitting on their Makeup Vanity? It’s cute AND functional!

The ORIGINAL BeautyBlender: Adding BOUNCE To Your Makeup Routine… BUT Are You Using It Correctly??

Hello, Beauties!

So, I know that BeautyBlender’s have been around (it seems like) forever, and Beauties EVERYWHERE have absolutely fallen in LOVE with them. But to tell you the truth, I always kind of thought they were just another gimmick-y product, that worked, but didn’t make a difference. I bought a BeautyBlender when they first came out, (or around the time the BeautyBlender craze started) and of course, I didn’t read the instructions, because I was thinking it was just like every other Makeup Sponge, (but made with better material). MY BAD. But with the Beauty Industry constantly improving, and one of the main focuses being INGREDIENTS, like Skin Improving additives in a lot of formulas, fragrance free, paraben free, and dye free products, as well as non comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and non irritating products, Beauties everywhere are realizing that ingredients MATTER. The same goes for Beauty Tools, Brushes, and BeautyBlenders– Beauties want the BEST for their faces and skin, because if there are steps we can take to improve our skin with makeup application, then OF COURSE we are going to want what’s best for our complexions….

 

6-Ways-Youre-Using-Your-BeautyBlender-Wrongly-Featured

 

 

So how do you properly use a BeautyBlender? For some, it may be common sense, but to other’s (who used to have the same views on BeautyBlender’s that I did) get ready for some LIFE CHANGING Foundation Application NEWS. But first, let’s talk about the BENEFITS of a BeautyBlender!

 

 

Homepage_C_Master_012019Refresh__keepitcleanaerial_V1

 

 

BeautyBlender Benefits:

 

  • The BeautyBlender is designed to ensure that it DOES NOT absorb your Foundation- IF you use it PROPERLY. Most Makeup Sponges result in lost product, and sponge-y marks on your face, which is the opposite of what EVERY Beauty wants.
  • The BeautyBlender TRULY presses Foundation into skin, to create a flawless, even, and FLEXIBLE application of Foundation, that can be TOUCHED UP a lot easier than Foundation that’s not applied or set with a BeautyBlender.
  • The BeautyBlender is so easy to cleanse, especially with BeautyBlender’s Cleansing Products, like The BlenderCleanser, which come in Solid AND Liquid forms. And it SHOULD BE cleansed after every use, because that way, Foundation, Oil, and Bacteria don’t build up inside of the BeautyBlender.
  • Even though you should ALWAYS use a DAMP BeautyBlender to apply Foundation (we will get into that in a few) you can also use a damp BeautyBlender to apply POWDER Foundations, Finishing Powders, Mineral Powders, and Bronzers, as well as using it to BLEND your Contour, Highlight, and Blush into a perfectly blended application of Makeup.
  • The BeautyBlender can be used to TOUCH UP Foundation, Powder, etc. during the day (even though you won’t need to do much “Touching Up”, when you use the BeautyBlender for Foundation/Powder Application).
  • The BeautyBlender’s ICONIC sponge-like material, will NOT disturb the Finish/Set of your previous Foundation Application- So if you need to “Touch Up” your Foundation/Powder, all you do is apply Foundation/Concealer to your face OR directly on to the BeautyBlender (or apply Powder Foundation to the actual BeautyBlender itself), and then BOUNCE, AKA stipple the BeautyBlender (that’s what I mean by BOUNCE) up on down on the area you’re needing to Touch Up, and BOOM! The BeautyBlender presses Foundation/Powder/etc. into your pores, and blends previous Foundation/Powder, into your fresh product of choice.
  • The Water in the DAMP BeautyBlender, helps re-wets Foundation/Powder (and by WET I mean DAMP), which blends the fresh product into the already applied product, without disturbing the application, which makes for NO CAKING, ZERO Foundation Lines, and NONE of those pesky grey Foundation build up lines.
  • The BeautyBlender is egg shaped, because the BeautyBlender founder experimented with different sponge shapes, to ensure that the BeautyBlender is as user friendly, as it is Makeup Friendly. The bottom, sides, and pointed part of the BeautyBlender are meant for different parts of your face, which makes Foundation/Powder/Blush/Bronzer/Highlighter Application a SNAP! The pointed part of the BeautyBlender is meant for around your eyes, nostrils, and all of those smaller, tricky parts when applying Foundation/Concealer/Powder.
  • The Original BeautyBlender, will last AT LEAST three months (depending on how often you apply Foundation, etc.), BUT you should purchase a new one every three months, to ensure the quality and integrity of your BeautyBlender stays up to par, as well as for hygienic purposes.

 

beautyblender

 

As far as BeautyBlender’s go, it’s all about sticking to the INSTRUCTIONS, that come neatly packed in every BeautyBlender’s product packaging- and I know… When it comes to Beauty, there are NO RULES, BUT sticking to the ORIGINAL rules of the BeautyBlender, is actually CRUCIAL, to maximize your BeautyBlender’s performance. Because if you are TRULY using the BeautyBlender how it’s intended, then you ALREADY KNOW, how flawless, perfect, and long wearing, Foundation Application is, just by using it how it’s supposed to be used….. DAMP.

 

_104769774How To Use A BeautyBlender CORRECTLY:

Step 1:

SATURATE your BeautyBlender with WATER. You can either run your BeautyBlender under the sink, or put your BeautyBlender in a glass of Water, until it DOUBLES in size. Make sure the entire BeautyBlender is saturated with WATER. The BeautyBlender will expand as it fills up with Water. **BeautyBlender’s are ACTIVATED BY WATER, and that’s how BeautyBlender’s are supposed to work. ALWAYS. 

Step 2:

Squeeze your BeautyBlender (using CLEAN and freshly washed hands to ensure Bacteria doesn’t infiltrate your BeautyBlender). Your BeautyBlender will stay close to the size it expands to, when you first fill it up with Water. Use a Towel or Paper Towel and wrap up your BeautyBlender, then gently and lightly squeeze the Towel/Paper Towel around your BeautyBlender, to absorb MOST of the excess Water that’s in the BeautyBlender. Your BeautyBlender should be DAMP. Not soaking wet, but not completely drained of Water, either. The excess Water in the BeautyBlender ensure’s that your BeautyBlender won’t absorb your Foundation, Concealer, etc.

Step 3: 

Next, apply your Liquid Foundation or Concealer either directly on to your face (I apply my Foundation and Concealer in small dots across my face, over my entire face), OR you can apply it directly to your BeautyBlender. Remember; since the BeautyBlender has already absorbed Water, it will NOT absorb your Foundation, which means NO MORE WASTED PRODUCT!

Step 4:

Use the now, DAMP BeautyBlender, to blend out or apply your Foundation, by LITERALLY, BOUNCING the BeautyBlender in small motions over your entire face, to blend, apply, conceal, and set your Liquid Foundation OR Concealer. DO NOT WIPE THE BeautyBlender across your face! Using the BeautyBlender like a regular Makeup Sponge or Brush WILL NOT give you that FLAWLESS AF application of Foundation, that BeautyBlender promises, so just BOUNCE it. Seriously. Think stippling with a Makeup Brush, but with a BeautyBlender.

  • Use the BOTTOM of the BeautyBlender for larger areas of the face, like your cheeks or forehead, and use the top of the BeautyBlender (the tip) for areas like your eyes and nose, for more precision and control.
  • Use the SIDES of the BeautyBlender to BLEND, APPLY, or TOUCH UP, your favorite concealing, highlighting, contouring, blushing, or powder based products.
  • YES, you can use a damp BeautyBlender to apply Powder Foundation– just be sure  to SQUEEZE your BeautyBlender BEFORE you apply your Powder Foundation, and make sure your BeautyBlender does not have any excess Water!
  • BeautyBlender’s are great for Powder Foundation, because they PRESS the Powder Foundation into your skin, just like a Liquid Foundation. So you won’t waste product, or have any excess Powder laying on top of your Complexion, like what happens when you apply Powder with a Powder Brush, which ends up WASTING SO MUCH PRODUCT!  
  • You can also use your BeautyBlender to apply skin serums, sunscreens, moisturizers, AND Primers, which will ensure that your pre-makeup skin care routine, will look FLAWLESS under your Foundation.

Step 5: 

This is the part where you’re supposed to CLEANSE your BeautyBlender, but I put it back in the original packaging and throw it in my makeup bag for the day, so I can use it for touch ups, blending, and any application needs throughout the day. AND THEN, I cleanse my BeautyBlender at the end of the day, with a SOLID or LIQUID BeautyBlender Cleanser.

 

5c48f5d3-557b-4439-9eaa-fe83ac0ff583

 

BeautyBlender Cleansing Steps:

Step 1:

Wet your BeautyBlender, by running it under the sink in lukewarm water. Make sure the entire BeautyBlender is saturated with Water.

Step 2:

Add BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser to the BeautyBlender:

  • If you’re using the LIQUID BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser, you can pump the cleanser on to the BeautyBlender itself, OR you can pump the BlenderCleanser into your CLEAN and freshly washed hands.
  • If you’re using the SOLID BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser, then wet the Solid Cleanser with Water, like you do with any Beauty Bar Soap. Then you can slide the BeautyBlender across the Solid Cleanser in it’s entirety.
  • Completely saturate the BeautyBlender with whichever BlenderCleanser you prefer.
  • ALWAYS use a BlenderCleanser (Liquid OR Solid Form) that’s made by BeautyBlender, because there are specific ingredients in the BlenderCleanser’s that are gentle, yet effective on your BeautyBlender.

Step 3:

Work the BeautyBlender and the BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser into a lather. GENTLY wash it with your hands and continue to lather it, paying special attention and using extra time to wash the areas of the BeautyBlender, where there is more product build up.

Step 4:

Rinse the BeautyBlender with Water. You can run it under the sink with COLD Water (Cold Water will clarify the BeautyBlender of BlenderCleanser, better than Warm or Hot Water), and gently squeeze excess Cleanser out while rinsing the BeautyBlender. Make sure the BeautyBlender is completely rinsed out and free of Cleanser.

Step 5:

Once the BeautyBlender is free of any Cleanser, saturate the BeautyBlender with Water and SQUEEZE all of the excess Water out of the BeautyBlender completely.

Step 6:

Then, gently press your BeautyBlender on a clean Towel or fresh Paper Towel, to ensure that ALL of the excess Water is gone. Then, you can use your Original packaging, or any BeautyBlender approved drying tool, (as long as it’s clean and in a well ventilated area), and place your CLEAN and FRESH BeautyBlender onto the tool or on top of the Original packaging (place it sideways if you are using the Original packaging to ensure ventilation), and that way your beloved BeautyBlender will dry evenly, quickly, and ON TIME, for the next day’s Makeup Application.

BeautyBlender’s BlenderCleanser SOLID, is your ticket to a perfectly cleansed and fresh AF BeautyBlender. The BlenderCleanser SOLID tends to last longer than BeautyBlender’s Liquid BlenderCleanser, and a little goes a long way! It removes bacteria, oil, makeup, and any unwanted residue, completely, and also removes any makeup stains, which will keep your BeautyBlender fresh, clean, and looking PRETTY!

BeautyBlender’s Liquid BlenderCleanser is a mess free, and more precise version of BlenderCleanser. Both BlenderCleanser’s are gentle on your BeautyBlender, and each cleanser doesn’t break down the material or integrity of your BeautyBlender. The Liquid BlenderCleanser comes in pump style packaging, so for Beauties who like a pump style cleanser more than a Solid Cleanser, than Liquid BlenderCleanser is for you!

Beautyblender-Gold-Mine-Catalog-Solo-20499-1500x1500_1500xIf you’ve been using a DRY BeautyBlender, and you haven’t had any problems and are happy with your Makeup Application, you may be hesitant to try the INTENDED method- I definitely was. It didn’t make sense to me, and I was afraid that the BeautyBlender would absorb my Foundation, or could possibly mess up the Finish of my Foundation- especially because applying Product with a DAMP Makeup Tool, seems weird.  #LetsBeHonest BUT it’s SO WORTH IT. I promise. Using the BeautyBlender the CORRECT WAY, has been seriously #LifeChanging for my Makeup Application! But, you might still be wondering how the BeautyBlender doesn’t absorb Foundation or other product- Here’s the breakdown;

 

61Vnqa82JlL._SY355_

 

Not only is the BeautyBlender LATEX FREE, but it’s made with different material than regular Makeup Sponges. AND the WHOLE REASON the BeautyBlender DOES NOT absorb Makeup, is because saturating the BeautyBlender with Water, and then squeezing most of the excess Water out, ensures that the BeautyBlender is already FULL– of Water that is. So the Water actually creates a BARRIER, so the BeautyBlender is literally UNABLE to retain or absorb Foundation or other products. Which completely makes sense now that I’ve learned, AND LIVED the BeautyBlender MAKEUP APPLICATION DREAM, and I now know, the way the BeautyBlender is supposed to work! It’s a HUGE Makeup Application Epiphany– especially because my skin is in the annoying process of changing from Oily/Acne Prone, to Dry/Combination.

 

fantl-beauty-blender-2018-02

 

The BeautyBlender is PERFECT for ALL Skin Types; and if you’re like me and have recently went through a skin transformation, or your FAVORITE Foundation Brand changed their formula (I’m talking about YOU, Kat Von D Lock It Foundation), and you’re now stuck in Beauty Limbo, trying to find a NEW Foundation that you absolutely love, then BeautyBlender is your ticket to a PERFECT Foundation Application, and some much needed relief.

iebniuebnieu

 

If you have DRY SKIN, and you’re having trouble with Foundation/Concealer sitting on top of your skin, and instead of absorbing into your skin, your Foundation is actually  accentuating your pores, then BeautyBlender is your NEW BFF. The DAMP BeautyBlender, will press your Foundation/Concealer into your skin with ease, and it will create a FLAWLESS (and non-overly dry) Application of Foundation.

If you have Oily/Acne Prone Skin, then the BeautyBlender is perfect, due to it’s non-irritating ingredients, and it’s highly hygienic properties. When you cleanse your BeautyBlender after every Makeup Application (or at night after the day is done), that cleanses away and removes any excess Oil and Bacteria, as well as any excess product, that comes from your Skin and/or products, after application with the BeautyBlender. If you have Oily/Acne Prone Skin, and you’re using a Foundation Brush, as well as Powder Brushes, Stippling Brushes, etc. then chances are you aren’t cleansing your Brushes every night; A) because most Makeup Brushes are too delicate to cleanse every night, and  that can ruin or pull out the brush fibers or disform the fibers on the Brush, and B) Makeup Brushes take a lot more time to DRY than a BeautyBlender does, so you can’t cleanse them daily, due to the time it takes to dry them before your next Makeup Application. So this is a GREAT way to cut out bacteria, oil, and other impurities that come from regular Makeup Brushes, which can cause acne and breakouts, or make acne and breakouts even WORSE!

And if you have Combination or Normal Skin, the BeautyBlender is just an easy, quick, and convenient way to apply, blend, set, and touch up your Makeup on the DAILY. The material doesn’t streak your Foundation. It just blends seamlessly. AND it’s an easy way to, not only, achieve the PERFECT application of Foundation, but it’s an extremely hygienic way to apply your Foundation, Concealer, etc. due to cleansing it, Daily. The BeautyBlender is also, non-irritating, and is made with water soluble, non-toxic dyes (which is how it achieves that pretty pink shade we all know and love) so it’s also great for Sensitive Skin. It’s also LATEX FREE.

 

Very-Surprising-Way-Repurpose-Your-Old-Beautyblender

 

Plus, the size of the BeautyBlender is PERFECT, because you can literally throw it in your purse and GO, without having to haul around a Blending, Foundation, Powder, Contour, Blush, and Highlighting Brush, etc. So it’s great for saving space in your makeup bag and/or purse. BUT since BeautyBlender’s are always DAMP during application, you definitely want to store your BeautyBlender in the Original packaging when you’re taking it on the go, OR you can purchase a BeautyBlender BlenderDefender, for just $12 online at http://www.Sephora.com– not only does the BeautyBlender BlenderDefender protect the integrity and condition of your BeautyBlender, it also protects it from bacteria and other nasties that can infiltrate your BeautyBlender in your purse or makeup bag. It’s also a great tool to dry and store your BeautyBlender after cleansing, because the oxygen holes in the BlenderDefender, make sure your BeautyBlender has plenty of ventilation to dry, which keeps out bacteria, and ensures an evenly dried BeautyBlender for your next Makeup Application. You MUST dry your BeautyBlender in a well ventilated area anyways, to prevent bacteria, germs, and any musty odors that can come from leaving your BeautyBlender in a wet, non-ventilated area.

Types of BeautyBlenders:

  • The ORIGINAL BeautyBlender, which is the Original PINK BeautyBlender, in the Original Size.
  • The BeautyBlender PRO, which is in the shade, BLACK. Black is a pro-artists FAVORITE due to a lot of pro formulas being highly pigmented, which can cause stains on the Original Pink BeautyBlender. The PRO doesn’t stain and will keep your BeautyBlender looking FRESH, always. So this is the PERFECT choice for MUA’s, Freelance MUA’s, and Beauties who use A LOT of Foundation, Concealer, etc.
  • The BeautyBlender PURE is a white, dye free, BeautyBlender which is PERFECT for Sensitive Skin, even though the Original BeautyBlender is made with NON-TOXIC Dyes. So the BeautyBlender Pure, is just taking your Skin Sensitivity needs a step further!
  • The BeautyBlender NUDE, which is a medium to darker skin toned Beauty’s DREAM, for applying darker and more pigmented Foundations.
  • The BeautyBlender MicroMini’s are a much smaller version of the Original BeautyBlender, and are perfect for concealing around your eyes, and will give you a more precise application around those small, hard to get areas.
  • The BeautyBlender Blusher, which comes in both PINK AND WHITE (White is the smaller version of BeautyBlender PURE, which is dye free). The BeautyBlender Blusher is a smaller version of the Originals, and are perfect for Contouring, Blushing, and Highlighting, as well as not having to worry about pigment transferring to your Foundation/Powder/Concealer BeautyBlender.

 

 

find-your-beautyblender

 

There are SO MANY copycats that “claim” they are “generic” or “just as good” as the ORIGINAL BeautyBlender and it’s ICONIC material, etc. But that’s simply not true. Yes, there are some Makeup Application Sponges that are similar to the ORIGINAL BeautyBlender, but when it comes down to it, always be sure to purchase straight from the OFFICIAL, ORIGINAL BeautyBlender’s website http://www.BeautyBlender.com, or OFFICIAL BeautyBlender retailers, like Sephora and Ulta, to make sure you’re getting a high quality product.

Using the BeautyBlender correctly is SO IMPORTANT. It WILL seriously change your Makeup Routine into a fun and easy task, because you will always get a FLAWLESS AF Face of Makeup. When I was using a DRY BeautyBlender, I wasn’t experiencing the array of benefits that BeautyBlender lover’s always rave about. So I didn’t really care to use it at all. But now that I am applying Makeup THE CORRECT way with a BeautyBlender, I am now, HOOKED, and couldn’t be more happy with my Foundation Application! The different Foundations that I tried (after my Main BAE Foundation was reformulated), just didn’t seem to do the job, and they always sat on top of my skin, no matter what. Primers seemed to give my Foundation Application longer wear-time, but 3 hours in, I’d notice my pores starting to show. And no matter what, nothing helped. And a lot of the NEW Foundations I tried and LOVED (for those first few hours), were disappointing me, and these were TOP RATED (and expensive) Foundations. BUT NOW, I am LOVING, each and every NEW Foundation I’ve tried, due to FINALLY FINDING THE MISSING LINK, thanks to my Gal Pal, who was struggling with Foundation sitting on top of her face, as well. At first, we both thought it seemed like a weird concept; but my Gal Pal was LOVING it, so I (finally) pulled out the BeautyBlender instructions, (after purchasing a BRAND NEW BeautyBlender) and started researching THE CORRECT BeautyBlender application method. And I never looked back. I went from feeling extremely insecure about my face of Foundation (for the last 3 months!), to feeling confident, beautiful, and happy about my face of Foundation, once again, FINALLY!

So the moral of this story is; ALWAYS READ INSTRUCTIONS and RESEARCH your Tools, Makeup Brushes, Foundations, and other Makeup Products! And if you’re not getting the results that are promised, chances are, you are probably missing something that’s VITAL to the process! Also, be open to learning new techniques, and application methods! Because now that I’m am using my BeautyBlender correctly, my views on BeautyBlender’s went from MEH, to BeautyBlenders are ESSENTIAL AF!

Natasha Denona revamped her Foundation X Full Coverage Foundation, and gave the formula an upgrade! With 22 shades to choose from, Natasha Denona promises full coverage, with a natural finish for ALL skin types. BUT if you are a big fan of Foundation X (The Original), I would try this out in stores before you decide to switch. I definitely would get color matched, IN STORE, because some of these shades are a little tricky to work with. AND as far as Darker Skin Tones go, Foundation X+ doesn’t have the greatest assortment of shades, which is one of my biggest complaints about this Foundation. The fact that some Beauty Brands are STILL NOT releasing adequate shades for Darker Skin Tones, is really frustrating to me, and ALL of my Darker Skin Toned Beauty Babes. It’s just not right. AT ALL. #EndRant

Anastasia Beverly Hills’ SPRING 2019 BEAUTY LAUNCHES are upon us, and the ABH Riviera Eyeshadow Palette packaging has us saying, “Hey Sailor!”, but the pigments are anything but ordinary. In fact, the dramatic color contrast between the packaging and the actual pigments/shadows, make the brightly colored ABH Eyeshadows Lit AF. And I know Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is LIVING CORAL, which is apparent in the colors, Estate, and Coastline, but as for Summer 2019’s Color, I’m thinking Electric Pink is going to break the Beauty Industry. And by the looks of ABH’s Riviera Eyeshadow Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills is on board- and NOT just onboard a Yacht in The Hamptons!

riviera-palette-swatch-1551192329

This very apparent contrasting assortment of packaging AND colors, is a nod to both Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion AND Beauty. I think as far as Spring 2019, and going into Summer 2019, we’re going to see a lot of neutrals, whites, khaki-tone, and casual, laid back looks in Fashion, (Literally- think about The Hamptons), but I think Makeup/Beauty is going to be all about POPS of Color, and mixing Golden Bronze, with POPS of ELECTRIC Colors, like Lime, Turquoise, Hot Pink, and Bright Corals. And ALL of those colors go hand in hand with tan, sun kissed skin. We will be seeing a lot of these color choices in Makeup/Beauty, Manicures, Pedicures, and even in Swimwear. It’s all about the Contrast of Color for EVERYTHING Spring/Summer 2019, and this includes Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Riviera Eyeshadow Palette!

Anastasia Beverly Hills DEWY SET Setting Spray

$26|www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com

 

03b9ec45-2b24-4372-b86e-a448ef72e67e-anastasia-beverly-hills-abh-setting-spray-dewy

ABH Dewy Set Setting Spray, is a a Water Based Setting Spray, that leaves your skin looking AND feeling Dewy and Fresh. Not only does it hydrate, but it also SETS and FIXES Makeup. Don’t like Shimmer?? Before you say “NO WAY!” to ABH’s Dewy Set Setting Spray, you need to note that ONLY THE PACKAGING has sparkle- NOT the formula, so this is great for Beauties that aren’t a fan of Shimmer in their Setting Sprays, as well as Beauties who want a Fresh & Dewy Look to their face of makeup. It’s also Vegan, Cruelty Free, and Paraben, Gluten, and Alcohol Free! Anastasia Beverly Hills touts that Dewy Set Setting Spray is “Free of Oils & Minerals”, BUT on the list of ingredients, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil is one of the last ingredients, and even though it’s a small amount, that doesn’t exactly mean it’s “Oil Free”. But PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil isn’t exactly an “Oil”, either.

ec76787b-5758-4e8b-bb61-bee7ec4ccd28-anastasia-beverly-hills-dewy-set-setting-spray

So, what exactly is PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil? I did some research and here’s the breakdown. PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, is a derivative from actual Castor Oil. So, since it’s a derivative from Castor Oil, it doesn’t quite qualify as an “Oil”, but it also doesn’t quite disqualify it from being an “Oil”. PEG’s are not irritants or considered to be sensitizers, but you still should NOT use it on broken or already irritated skin. It’s present in TONS of Beauty Products; mostly soaps, body washes, bubble bath, etc. but it can also be used as an emollient. The main use for it in products like Setting Sprays, Foundations, Primers, etc. is so both Oil AND Water (think Silicone products w/ Water or Vice Versa) can be mixed together instead of repelling each other. And since ABH’s Dewy Set Setting Spray is WATER BASED, it helps ingredients that have Silicone or Oil in them, mix with the Water, without separating. It also works to keep moisture in, and repel Water from the outside in. So this is exactly why, ABH Dewy Set Setting Spray contains this ingredient. It helps “lock” moisture in, after setting makeup, so your makeup doesn’t crack, dry out, or fade throughout the day. It also repels liquids like sweat, water, etc. to insure that makeup stays in place, and that sweat or water doesn’t ruin your makeup.

So after doing a little research, I did find that ABH Dewy Set Setting Spray IS a worthy option as a Setting Spray; for both Water Based Foundations AND Silicone Based Foundations, due to the PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil!

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Gel, is a new Brow Product that Anastasia Beverly Hills (the QUEEN of Brows) released as part of their BIGGEST Spring Launch, EVER.  Another GROUNDBREAKING Brow Product, Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Gel is similar to the OG DipBrow, but different in texture, formula, consistency, and has completely different packaging and application method.

Instead of having a thick, pomade-like consistency and formula, like the OG DipBrow, DipBrow Gel, is just that; a GEL. It comes in a tube package (think a mascara tube) with a brow wand, for easy application. With DipBrow Gel, instead of applying it with an angled brow brush, you apply it with the included brow wand, and brush the formula up in small strokes, to enhance and bring out your natural brow shape. The DipBrow GEL is flexible, and can be layered on for more color and thicker brow looks. You get high and rich color payoff with each stroke, and the GEL adheres to your natural brow hair, to create natural, full, and REAL looking Brows. It’s a Brow FILLER. And since it’s flexible you can build your desired coverage to your little heart’s content. After it dries and sets, it has a matte finish, and stays put all day.

For more precise looking Brows, after applying Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Gel, use one of Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Definers, Brow Wiz, Perfect Brow Pencil, or Brow Powder Duo (Brow Powder Duo must be used with an angled brow brush), to outline your eyebrow completely, to give your Brows precise and exact shape. Then fill in any spots that need to be filled in, or need more color. Take a Brow Wand (NOT the Brow Wand from DipBrow Gel), and brush your inner Brow hairs on each Brow, UP to create the Brow “ombre” effect and perfectly blended inner brows from top to bottom.

On The FRESH Side: This Week In Beauty

On The FRESH SIDE: This Week In Beauty 

 

|Newly Released Beauty Products That Are #OnFleekThisWeek|

 

 

Natasha Denona Bloom & Blush Glow Palette

$55|www.sephora.com

 

fiufdb

I know I talk about Natasha Denona…. A LOT. But I’m not sorry. Because ND keeps releasing SO MANY goodies, and I just can’t stop, absolutely, LOVING THEM ALL! ND’s Bloom & Blush Glow Palette, is absolutely GORGEOUS. With two creams, and two powders, which makes for FOUR shades total, (Glow Cream Base, Cream Blush, Glow Extreme, & Duo Glow) you can Bloom & Blush this Spring to your heart’s content!

 

 

Kat Von D *NEW* Lock It Powder Foundation

$36|www.sephora.com

20043_2155M

Kat Von D’s *NEWLY FORMULATED* Lock It Powder Foundation is FRESH AF, and newly formulated! Plus, it comes in a pretty little package, which is WAY cuter than the older packaging! Since this is one of my FAVES, I’m going to actually review this, in an upcoming post, and let all of my Beauties know if the NEW FORMULA is worth the hype! I have it, in hand, and I’m ready to CAKE MY FACE! So I’ll let all of my Lock It Loving Babes, how it goes!

 

 

Urban Decay NAKED RELOADED Eyeshadow Palette

$44|www.sephora.com

 

urban-decay_naked-reloaded_001_palette

Urban Decay presents another iconic NAKED Eyeshadow Palette, to add to their uber-successful NAKED Collection, and it is the Urban Decay NAKED RELOADED Eyeshadow Palette! This FRESH and NEW Eyeshadow Palette, is a reinvention of the OG Naked Palette, and features 11 BRAND NEW Shades, along with 1 OG Shade! The 4 outer pans of pigmented color, (Bribe, Barley Baked, Boundaries & Blur) are LARGER than the other 8 shades, and are PERFECT for Highlighting your Brow Bone! It’s only available ONLINE at http://www.sephora.com, for purchase, so you can get “First Access” to this palette before it launches in stores!

BUT (yes, there is a “but”)…. If you already own Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, you might want to sit Urban Decay’s NAKED RELOADED Eyeshadow Palette, out, because *NEWS FLASH* the colors are almost EXACTY THE SAME, except ABH’s Sultry Palette has a grey (Slate) and black (Noir), which is why the ABH Sultry Palette has 14 shades instead of 12, like Urban Decay NAKED RELOADED has. SO, if you don’t have ABH’s Sultry Palette, then by all means, go ahead and go for NAKED RELOADED… But if not, you might want to save your money and wait until Urban Decay’s NEXT NAKED Palette! And hopefully the next NAKED Palette will be ORIGINAL.

Natasha Denona: The MINI Nude Palette

Hello, Beauties! 

It seems like Natasha Denona has had a lot of NEW RELEASES lately! And The Mini Nude Palette might just be my FAVE. And since Natasha Denona USUALLY releases Mini Versions of her FULL SIZED Palettes (Think Star Palette, Sunset Palette, and Lila Palette), the big questions are, will there be a FULL SIZED Nude Palette??? And is the Mini Nude Palette just as gorgeous as other Natasha Denona palettes?? Let’s discuss:

spring-2019_natasha-denona-mini-nude-eyeshadow-palette_002_promo

 

So, Natasha Denona, (Tel Aviv Based MUA) released her Gold Palette last Fall, but there’s No Mini Gold Palette (yet). So could the BRAND NEW Mini Nude Palette be a hint to something bigger?? I’ve searched everywhere regarding Natasha Denona’s FULL SIZED NUDE PALETTE, and I can’t find anything. But with Natasha Denona, she LOVES to surprise her fans with new gorgeous, fresh, and coveted palettes. We can only hope that a FULL SIZED Nude Palette will be released; because the MINI Nude Palette is absolutely GORGE.

So, about Natasha Denona’s Mini Nude Palette….

Natasha Denona’s MINI Nude Palette contains five, matte and metallic shades, with one chroma crystal light topper in the mix. Each shade, especially the matte shades, provide INTENSE pigment, as always when it comes to Natasha Denona. Deep, matte shade, SOIL, is a rich, red based, brown, which is perfect for adding dimension to your eye, by using it on your (eye) crease.  Shimmer based shade, BRONZAGE, is perfect to use as a pop of color, by painting the shimmering gold on your lid, OR your inner (top) lid, to add a pop of shimmer. I also used BRONZAGE as a liner, (with a thin, flat, liner brush) right beneath my lash line (bottom lid), which looked like I used a gorgeous, gold liquid liner, but really, it was a powder based eye shadow! So this palette is very diverse, and can be used as is, (eyeshadows), or as a liner (NOT on your water lash line, of course). You can also wet any good eyeshadow brush, by misting it with a makeup setting spray, or reworking mist, OR you can use a mixing medium, by dipping your brush in the mixing liquid, and then using the highly pigmented eyeshadows (use at your own discretion).  Shade, Sienna, is the Crystal Chroma Lid Topper, in this palette, and it POPS and adheres to lids, like a DREAM! Matte shade, QUOIN, is the PERFECT SHADE, to blend out and create the perfect color transfer on your lid.  And shimmer based shade Lumino is perfect for those lighter lid pops, and brow highlights.

This palette of gorgeous color is the perfect palette to create the new, beautiful trend, called, The Sunset Eye. And NO. I’m not talking about Natasha Denona’s Sunset Palette, or that Sunset Palette Eyelook…. I’m talking about a new look that is all about creating beautiful ombre’d NUDE colors (from Natasha Denona’s Mini Nude Palette), that melt into each other and create a natural, but absolutely STUNNING eye look. And the best part? It’s all about BLENDING, so there’s no color block eyeshadow application (which can sometimes be tough) involved! Here are some GORGE Natasha Denona Mini Nude Palette looks, to inspire your SUNSET EYE!

Step By Step Sunset Eye W/ Natasha Denona’s Mini Nude Palette:

  • Prime your eyelids with a good primer or liquid foundation.
  • Apply BRONZAGE (120M) to both of your eyelids w/ a SOFT FOCUS SHADER BRUSH.
  • Blend out BRONZAGE (120M) from your lids, OUT to create a a soft, bronze shimmer, w/ an ANGLED BLENDING EYESHADOW BRUSH.
  • Apply QUOIN (211CM) to your inner lids, and swipe up to your inner brow bones, w/ a TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH.
  • Use a DOMED BLENDING BRUSH, to add SOIL (213CM) to each eye crease.
  • Use a SHORT SHADER BRUSH to add a pop of LUMINO (212M) to the inner corners of your lids.
  • REUSE your TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH (again) with shade same shade, QUOIN (211CM), to blend your lid, into your crease (this will help create the perfect ombre’ AKA Blend).
  • REUSE your SOFT FOCUS SHADER BRUSH, with BRONZAGE (120M) (again), to blend LUMINO (212M) into BRONZAGE (120M) (inner lid to lid).
  • Use a FIRM SHADER BRUSH to apply the brow bone highlight of your choice- If you have Medium to Deep Skin Tones, you can highlight w/ QUOIN (211CM). If you have a Lighter Skin Tone, then either leave your brow highlight BLANK (which will highlight your brow naturally from the other colors), or use your favorite brow highlighter.
