Jouer means 'to play' in French and that's exactly what we did at yesterdays video shoot! Some great makeup tutorials are coming your way, highlighting some of the spring/summer makeup trends that are not only gorgeous but also easy to re-create on yourself. We were very excited to get the chance to work with Jouer Cosmetics new spring product additions during the shoot.
I'm a huge fan of this makeup brand because of their accessible and easy to travel with packaging, amazing sheer and creamy formulations that accentuate your natural beauty, and of course beautiful color selections. New in for spring are Jouer's Cream Eyeshadow Crayons in Abstract (soft black), Avant Garde (navy charcoal), Rococo (french vanilla), Renaissance (bronzed plum) and Baroque in soft gold. All of these crayons have a beautiful shimmer to them, are crease-resistant and water proof.
Sometime I'm in a rush in the morning and don't have time to use multiple products. That's when products like Jouer's Tint in Honeysuckle come in handy. This new tint comes in my favorite color for cheeks (peach) and literally adds a subtle flush of color that looks completely natural. You can also sweep it across your lips and out the door you go!
Also new in from Jouer are six gorgeous lip products. If you like more bold and solid color you'll love the Tinted Lip Enhancer in Bellini, Cosmo and Shiraz. Or if you desire high gloss shine and a bit of color you'll like the Pearl Lip Enhancers in Nude, Peach, and Rose. Not only do all of these give great color to the lips without feeling sticky, they also serve as a conditioning and plumping lip treatment with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil.

Models appear to have glamorous, jet-setting lifestyles as they fly from one Fashion Week to the next but little do we know how traumatic this is on their skin. After all, their face is put through the ringer and doesn't have a lot of breathing time when it's constantly having makeup reapplied to it every hour. Makeup artists witness dry patches, redness and faces covered in pimples on a constant basis. So it's not unusual for makeup artists to apply their favorite skincare items to rescue model's traumatized skin behind the curtain.
Makeup artist Kristen Arnett, fashion week veteran was able to remove unbudging, full kabuki makeup with ease and without traumatizing the skin using RMS Beauty's Coconut Oil. Featured on wellangoodnyc.com, more and more makeup artists are stocking their kit with natural skincare alternatives because they find they're the best method to treat overworked skin without adding extra irritation.

Embrace natural skincare alternatives, especially when a makeup artists puts their stamp of approval on it!

Our latest Fragrance Flight theme will transport you to the charming and chic streets of Paris. The 'City of Lights' is the inspiration for our Fragrance Flight VOL. 3, containing six .05 oz sizes that celebrate the perfume heritage of Paris and the trails of scent that courses through its cobblestone veins. From the scent of coffee beans wafting through a cafe, the intoxicating allure of vanilla on the neck scarf of a finely dressed French woman, to the warm and buttery croissants from a streetcar vendor - Paris is an aromatic journey waiting to be explored!
This season our curator was Ineke Ruhland, an amazing San Francisco based perfumer and creator of Ineke who spent time honing her craft in Grasse, the Provencal city that spawned perfumery in France. She selected the particular scents below for their ability to be layered and capture the essence of Paris.
Juliette Has A Gun Vengeance Extreme – Vengeance can be dangerous and this seductive fragrance of Patchouli, Bulgarian Rose, and Vanilla is not to be left in innocent hands.
L’Aromarine Vanille – There’s something nostalgic about vanilla and this warm fragrance is just as sweet as the bottle’s circa 1920’s Paris design.
Etat Libre d’Orange Archives 69 - Fragrance has no rules or regulations and this scent is the epitome of sensual liberation with notes of Tangerine, Orchid, and Benzoin.
Ineke Field Notes From Paris – The ambience and warm aromas of a Parisian café, tobacco flower and tonka bean alike are the inspiration behind this fragrance loved by both women and men.
Montale Velvet Flowers – Floral harmonies of Peach Blossom, Ylang Ylang, and Jasmine transport us on an intoxicating journey to far exotic lands.
Tokyo Milk French Kiss – Decorated with an image of one of the world’s most romantic monuments, this is a fragrant homage to the sweetness of Paris with notes of mandarin, tuberose and vetiver.Read More »
Shop Peter Thomas Roth here!
I'd love to get a few professional laser treatments done. The idea of going in and having some pimple scars zapped to oblivion in a few treatments sounds very enticing, let alone expensive. The minute you begin paying someone for their time and a six digit specialty machine I don't think you're going to come out of there with to much cash flow to spare.
That's what's so great about skincare leader Peter Thomas Roth. He creates at-home, affordable solutions to our most frustrating skincare concerns - fine lines, sun spots, rough textured skin, acne scars and more! Case in point, the new Laser-Free Kit. Only $68 but with a $150 retail value you get 4 smaller sizes of Peter Thomas Roth's Laser Free range including the Laser Free Resurfacer, Retexturizer, Regenerator and Eye Serum. All of these products work to lessen the appearance of noticeable signs of aging and improve skin's texture, tone and clarity.Read More »

Shop Butter London here!
Acetone nail polish is not simpatico when it comes to nail health. This harsh smelling and highly flammable liquid may remove the most stubborn of nail lacquers with ease, however I always wonder what it's doing to my nails when the same liquid is capable of disintegrating even plastic.
If you're concerned about chemicals in beauty products and the overall health of your nails then you'll love Butter London's Royal Punch Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover. Exclusively sold at b-glowing, this coconut mango scented remover gently removes all traces of lacquer without using any nasty chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, bismuth and other nasties. Fresh and fruity, I love that this lacquer remover smells so tropical!

Shop It Cosmetics here!
Whoever thought a lip liner could cause such a ruckus. They sold out on QVC in minutes and now the much wanted YLBB Lip Liner Stain by It Cosmetics is available at b-glowing.com! I'm not giving it enough credit; much more than a lip liner it's a multi-purpose product that serves as a lip primer, liner and long wearing lip stain in one. It comes in two, very complimentary and universal colors if you like shades that enhance and deepen your natural lip color.
I really liked working with these because I'm always wanting my lips to appear fuller and have a really hard time trying to get them to look natural when working with darker lipsticks. The YLBB Lip Liner Stain is a dream to work with as it glides on and allows you to go over the bridge of your lip line with ease and perfection. It's also packed full of anti-aging properties like Acai, Vitamin A, C, and E to protect the lips from free radical damage all day long. See for yourself how beautiful the color looks in this comparison picture below.
