Beauty Lover Gift Guide For Blog

Tis the season to go shopping…..If you have a beauty lover you are shopping for this year, it can be intimidating deciding what to buy because they may have everything they need. Its no secret that I am obsessed with anything beauty related so I put together some fabulous must have beauty items that every women would love. Enjoy!

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eye Palette- I am obsessed with all of the Naked Eye Palettes. In my opinion they are a must have in your makeup drawer. Packed with all the essentials needed to create the perfect neutral smoky eye, it offers an array of shades, a double-ended brush, and a detailed lookbook that breaks down four amazing ways to nail any smoky look. The eye shadow pans offer a smoky, transparent base, the magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow from spilling in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get a sultry look whenever the urge strikes. This palette comes with 12 smoky neutral eye shades, a double- ended brush, and a loo book with 4 chic looks.

Smith and Cult Shattered Souls Nail Polish- I cant say enough good things about the Smith and Cult nail polish line. Smith and Cult’s Nailed Lacquer consistently delivers both flawlessly smooth coverage and brilliant shine. While custom tailored to provide high performance, the exclusive 5-Free formula is formulated without Dibutyl, Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. You all know the struggle when you get your nails done and 2 days later your polish is already chipped. Guess what ?! This is the only polish I have used that will last over a week without chipping! Definitely worth the price.

CHI Original 1″ Ceramic Hairstyling Iron- The CHI Ceramic Hairstyling Iron is an ideal tool for all your creative styling and finishing needs. Achieve a variety of looks and styles with one versatile tools! I purchased this flat iron over 10 years ago after I graduated Cosmetology school and it is still holding up and I use it regularly. Not only does it give you super straight hair I also love to use it to achieve beautiful curls that last all day.

Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte- How stunning is this Lipstick?! Unctuous in nature, Silky Satin is the perfect alliance of luxurious color, sensuous feel and superior wear. It glides on with a unique blend of ultrafine color pigments that express deep and generous color with a silky satin finish and soft shine. Medium to full coverage is delivered in one stroke with a supple and soft feel on lips. A complex of natural oils and seed butters enhance moisturization for up to four hours and creates a protective effect against dryness.

Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll Mascara- This is one of my all time favorite mascaras. It lengthens, separates, gives volume and never clumps my lashes. On one side, thick and spaced bristles coat the lashes and create volume. On the other side, fine and close bristles reach every lash, including the smallest lashes at the corner of the eye for a full fringe effect.

Zadro™ 10x/1x Cordless LED Lighted Vanity Mirror- A magnified mirror that lights up can make all the difference when applying your makeup. Make sure you always look your best with this innovative Zadro 10x/1x Cordless LED Lighted Vanity Mirror. Featuring dual-sided, premium quality mirrors with two magnification, this mirror also lights up with LED bulbs to illuminate your entire face.

Giorgio Armani ‘Luminous Silk’ Foundation- I absolutely love this foundation. Its lightweight and provides a good amount of buildable coverage that leaves my skin looking flawless.

Premium Brush Kit- Great makeup brushes are a must! The premium kit contains fifteen signature quality brushes for the face, eyes and lips. These brushes are unique, versatile and the perfect addition to complete your brush collection.

Clarisonic MIA 1- Did you know a Clarisonic cleanses 6 times better then using your hands? It also removes impurities from your pores and skin allowing your skin care products to absorb  better. Clarisonic Mia 1® features Speed 2 (Universal), suitable for all skin types.

Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray- The bigger the hair the better! I love this hairspray. It gives my hair fabulous volume with a flexible hold. This firm, fast-drying volumizing hairspray leaves hair manageable and super shiny while defending it against damaging UV rays.

The Perfect Glow

Blog Post Glowing Skin

Hi dolls! If you are still not on the highlighting bandwagon.. I suggest you jump on it because who doesnt love beautiful glowing skin?! I’ve been on a highlighter/ illuminator kick for quite some time now so I thought it would be perfect to share some of my must have makeup products for the perfect GLOW! I definitely have a bit of an obsession with makeup and if it shimmers and/or highlights then I more then likely have purchased it. Theres no one or two specific products that I only use. I usually will mix several highlighters together until I feel I have achieved that perfect amount of dewy glow.

Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer- Available in a range of different hues, for radiant skin I love the #2. Depending on my mood I will either add a few pumps of this in with my Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk Foundation or after applying my foundation I will dab the Fluid Sheer on the top of my cheek bones. If you are looking for extra radiance you can even wear it alone.

Nars Highlighting Blush Powder- Albatross adds a sheer light golden sheen. You can wear this alone or added on top of your favorite makeup products for that added glow.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder- The 01- Highlighter gives a natural, but visibly gorgeous golden radiant look. The buildable coverage helps you customize your level of glow.

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer – I was introduced to this product years ago and have been obsessed every since. I wear the color Natural Radiance and love it. If you are looking for a go to light weight product that gives you dewy skin then this is the perfect product. I like to wear it by itself for a natural glow or layer it with my foundation.

Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer- This light- boosting primer gives your skin a beautiful luminous effect and instantly brightens. I personally like to mix this primer with my foundation, but it can be worn alone or added directly on top of foundation as well.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish- With a Champagne and Rose Gold mixture, Soft and Gentle is probably one of my all time favorite highlighters. This product is so creamy, shimmery and dewy and I love it!

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder- The color Luminous adds a gorgeous Champagne shimmer to your face and/or body. This product definitely has more shimmer then most highlighters so If you are looking to add a high level of shimmer/ sparkle to your look then this is the perfect product.

YVES Saint Laurent Touche Èclat Radiant Touch-  Goodbye dark circles and hello glowing skin. This luminizing pen immediately conceals, brightens, enhances, adds radiance and leaves your complexion looking rejuvenated. I use the color 1.5 Radiant Silk.
