Top Beauty Picks for Valentine's Day

Hello Gorgeous!

Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine's Day beauty is all about being seductive, sultry and having the obligatory pop of red (or pink if you're not feeling particularly bold)! We've handpicked a few of our favorite beauty items for Valentine's Day, and really any day that you want to feel confident and beautiful. Read on for our picks!

1. gloMinerals Powder Cheek Stain in "Rosy"

Don't be afraid of this seemingly too-dark cheek stain. Yes it's vibrant, but just act accordingly and apply less than you would a normal blush, in order to avoid looking like you just came out of a boxing ring. We recommend using a texture brush, like the gloMinerals Texture Brush, in order to achieve a light-weight application on the apples of your cheeks. This shade looks great on any skin type and gives a nice, healthy flushed look to your skin. Plus, because it's a stain, it's sweat resistant and lasts all day long!

2. gloMinerals Smoky Eye Kit

This smoky eye kit has everything needed to get those sultry bedroom eyes that seem to turn everyone into an instant super-model! There are four flattering shades in this mini palette, which comes with instructions on how to perfect the look. Plus, it's formulated with gloMineral's antioxidant blend, so it's actually good for your skin! We recommend that you use a lid primer first, so you can avoid the dreaded midday creases. 

3. Rusk Being Sexy Hairspray

This is a pretty sexy hairspray! It holds curls beautifully, while not making them feel like they are glued together. It has a light fragrance and gives your hair ultra-tempting texture and body! Tease it up and spray it some more, because there is nothing sexier than big, beautiful hair...especially if it's fragrant and touchable!

4. gloMinerals Suede Matte Crayon in "Bombshell"

A bombshell is a very attractive woman, and this shade is perfectly named because it really does make you feel like a bombshell! It's a sexy red lip that has a velvety smooth finish and conditions your lips with mango oil and shea butter. There is also a hint of peppermint in the formula, so it feels very refreshing! If you're looking for a bold, beautiful red, you need this! And don't let the matte scare you away...if you're not into the matte look, add some shine with a little lip gloss.

5. Cuccio Colour Nail Polish in "A Kiss In Paris"

Red nails are classy, bold and beautiful. Step up your nail game this February with this beautiful shade of red. Remember to always wear a base coat and top your magnificent manicure off with a top coat. A base and a top coat will extend your magnificent manicure's lifespan tremendously.

6. Osmosis Colour Smoky Eye & Bold Lip Kit

So we've talked about bold lips and we've talked about smoky eyes...Why not showcase an item that gives you the tools for both of these looks? This little value set comes with a liner and a glaze for your lips, as well as a mascara, liner, and watercolor for your eyes. Use it wisely and you'll be looking absolutely breathtaking for an evening out! And since Osmosis is rooted in skincare, you can feel good about what you're putting on your face when you use their makeup.

The Basics on Makeup Brushes

New Year, New Releases!

This is really not my favorite time of year. There are no big holidays to look forward to (sorry Valentine’s Day), spring is around the corner but definitely not sprung, the cold and wet and dark days are set to continue for another, oh, say two months? I know many of you up there in those northern climes have much more wintertime to deal with, and my heart goes out to you. But I have a little something to cheer us all up, because it’s not all doom and gloom, I promise! Most companies release new products throughout the year, but many save big revamps for the beginning of the year. A number of our most popular brands have done just that, and you should let that add some sunshine to your life!

1.Bioelements Plump Start
Bioelements is no joke, a leader in the industry insofar as professional training is concerned. That’s actually how they started.  Inevitably, when they release a new product, it’s because they’ve seen a
need and have found a solution that they trust enough to use in their spas all over the country. And the best part of THAT is that it is one of their company tenants that you, the customer, should be able to maintain your treatment at home with the same quality product. That’s right. They make esthetician quality products for you. Enter their latest release, Plump Start. What do they say about it?

“Plum-infused antioxidant concentrate instantly improves fullness, nourishes and smooths out fine lines. It's intelligent hydration that reads your skin and penetrates where it's needed – to visually improve the look of skin's wrinkle valleys and crevices.”

What we’ve noticed? Bioelements doesn’t do a product release halfway. I’ve tried a sample and my dry, sensitive skin drank it up. I’m definitely considering buying the full-sized unit and seeing what plumping my skin every day will do.

We just started carrying Enjoy after receiving recommendations from friends and customers alike, and this brand has been FLYING off the shelves! Everyone I’ve talked to loves the delicious scent, the hair-aware ingredients and the efficacy of the products. I know I’m in love with the Luxury Conditioner (I alternate it with another favorite of mine to keep the crazy curls hydrated), but their new release, the Protect & Shine is all about keeping your locks smooth, shiny and protected from heat treatments. As the weather heats up and you start pulling out your curling iron, keep this treasure in mind. 

3. GloMinerals Limited Edition Lipsticks
Who doesn’t love a little bit of a pretty pick-me-up? If you haven’t fallen for GloMinerals Lipsticks yet, now is the perfect opportunity to give them a try. While these two particular colors are in production, GloMinerals is even donating a portion of the proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. And what are they? Glaze is a warm brown sugar with a hint of sparkle that layers beautifully. Confetti is your classic light pink, airy and fabulous with its hint of tutus and candy. Both are sweet limited edition releases that your beauty bag probably needs.

Keep your chin up (and I’ll try to, too)! The New Year is off to a great start with great new products being dropped left and right. As that happens, we’ll be right there with you to let you know what’s up! ;)
