  • MAC Cozy Grey, Coral, Shell Peach, Memories of Space, Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems Eyeshadows & Reviews
    by Christine on April 1, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    MAC Cozy Grey Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light taupe, or alternatively, a subtly, cool-toned darker beige, with a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which had a smooth, velvety texture that wasn't too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. The formula felt more substantial and denser than some of the brand's matte shades, so it was more yielding but it still blended out easily and wasn't prone to sheering out too readily. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably. MAC Coral (2020) Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 Continue Reading…

    Fenty Beauty Cognac Candy Body Lava Body Luminizer ($60.00 for 3.0 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, orange-copper tinted base with fine gold and copper pearl throughout. It had a finer shimmer that produced a glowing sheen when applied to bare skin--lightly dewy and shiny but pearlescent. It produced the level of coverage anticipated based on the formula's claims, and whether the tint is really giving a bronzed effect will depend on one's natural skin tone--I definitely a tint to my skin but it was very subtle when applied and sheered out as a body product. The texture was more like Continue Reading…

  • Easy, Elegant Ways to Step Up Your Makeup for Your Next Zoom Virtual Meeting
    by Karen on April 1, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    Now that we’re cocooned in our homes for the next few weeks (months?), chances are you’ve already participated, or will be soon, in plenty of virtual meetings. The good news? You can easily skip wearing pants that day and nobody will be the wiser. 😊 (Side note: I may or may not be wearing pants right now.) The bad news? It’s sooooo not the same for makeup. As anyone who’s ever stood in a self-checkout line at Target and looked at themselves on those terrible tiny security monitors knows, video is completely and unabashedly unforgiving. The Zoom video meeting is here, and it’s NOT playing, folks! But that doesn’t mean you have to think, HOLY EFFING CRAP! IS THAT MY FACE FOR REALS!? every time you see yourself on camera. There are simple things you can do with your makeup to perk up for your next meeting. Here are my favorite ways to cheat the camera and look fresh and profesh on virtual visits! 1. Play with light by adding dimension to your cheekbones One of the easiest ways to enhance your skin on screen is by adding dimension to it, and the easiest and quickest way to do that is with highlighter on the high points of your face.

  • Spring Makeup Ideas: Shimmering Shades of Green
    by Karen on March 31, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    I call this “the look that almost never was.” Like “the land that time forgot.” LOL. It happened on accident last week while CoyCoy was napping in her fort. You know how wet leaves seem to look greener and lusher and shinier than usual under a gray spring sky? (Or is that just to me?) I swear, it’s like the color transitions are more obvious. Even in a blade of grass, it’s easy to see where the moss green fades into a dark forest green. I wanted a similar vibe of wet, green gradients on my lids, so I took out some NARS neutrals, along with a healthy handful of Urban Decay green shadows (they do the most technicolor greens; so does Make Up For Ever), with the intention of doing just my left eye with green, and then a completely different look on the other eye just for fun. Side note: Do you ever do this, too? Look breakdown Anyway, I liked it enough to keep going, and then this happy makeup accident happened. I’m wearing golden brown and beige mattes in my crease with a sweep of olive green in the lower portion of my crease.

  • Product Spotlight: Sally Hansen Sheer Color Therapy Nail Polish
    by Karen on March 31, 2020 at 2:01 am

    If you like pastel paws but don’t want to go full-on painted Easter egg, these sheer Sally Hansen polishes hit the spot. They’re from Sally’s moisturizing Color Therapy lacquer line and are $8.99 each. Fighting crabbiness one stroke at a time! Now, I’m not saying that the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Sheers will solve all your social distancing dilemmas (like, why is it so hard to find baking soda at the store right now?!), but they should help in a couple key areas, like if your nails need serious TLC! The moisturizing argan oil-infused Color Therapy formula helps reduce chipping and splitting. And, is it just me, or is there something intensely empowering about a set of freshly painted claws? I feel like a tiny @ss kicker when my nails are done and I’m wearing big hoops. These sheer shades, which are part of a sub-collection of the Sally Hansen Color Therapy nail polish line, are my new faves. There are only a handful of them, including cool-toned lavender Bare Tint, and cool light pink Bare Kiss, which has a hint of greige. Like all of the Color Therapy polishes, these have a flat, extra wide brush that fans across your entire nail to completely coat it with paint in one swipe… Not that I’ve got anywhere pressing to go these days, but manis and pedis are much quicker when I use this brush.
