TOP PICKS FOR BLUSHING BEAUTIES

10.16.13

Shop blushes here.

Adding a little color to your cheeks help define cheekbones and can even make your eyes pop. Blushes—from neutral to daring—can really awaken your look.

We’ve come a long way since the days of having to pinch our cheeks to achieve that flushed color, and besides being thankful for now having beautiful options to replace that particular technique, we’re especially excited for the five following brands.

RMS Lip2Cheek in modest: This is a great color for fall, especially because berry cheeks are on trend at the moment. It adds a nice, natural pop of color to the apples of the cheek, and, bonus, it can be used on lips for too!

IT Cosmetics - Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks: This product works on everyone and gives the look of healthy, flushed cheeks. Designed by plastic surgeons with anti-aging benefits, this is another double-duty product.

Paul & Joe Cheek Color Refill in Cinema 04: This blush is a must-have for those who love a punchy coral blush. It’s easily blendable and can also be used to slightly contour. A little shimmer gives a radiant finish.

Ilia Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek: This blush has a few more brown undertones that look great on very pale skin or olive complexions. You can adjust the coverage and intensity of the color with the easy-to-apply stick design.

CULT CLASSIC BEAUTY: LE COUVENT DES MINIMES GOOD NIGHT PILLOW MIST

10.11.13

Shop b-glowing's Cult Classic Picks.

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

Right now, we’re obsessed with the Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist—Lavender & Acacia. Not only is the bottle totally beautiful (and completely worthy of prime real estate on your bedside table), but the scent is also calming. Going into winter, it’s easy to get wrapped up in daily obligations that’ll only feel more demanding with the cold weather and darkening skies (sometimes before you even get off work!). So when you finally get to rest your pretty head on your pillow, you’re craving utter relaxation.

Just a few sprays of this mist on your pillow or sheets will fill the room with a subtle lavender scent. It’s made with purifying essential oils of lavender, mandarin, Ravensera, and Tea Tree, which all help produce serotoin—that wonderful chemical your brain releases that helps you feel sleepy. Both your mind and body will feel relaxed, carrying you into a restorative sleep. Who doesn’t need more beauty sleep anyway?

Unwinding at night is an important step in not only your beauty routine, but in your health and wellness routine, too. Sleep tight, so you wake up ready to conquer your day.

Ready for a great night’s sleep? Shop Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist here.

For this and more Cult Classic Beauty Picks, shop our boutiques at b-glowing.com.

Editor’s Note: The spray is affordable and luxurious, and most of all, it seriously chills me out on nights that I’m anxious for whatever reason, or having a hard time sleeping due to a busy brain. I don’t know what I ever did without it!

TOP PICKS: PROTECTION FOR YOUR TRESSES

10.10.13

Shop Styling Products here.

It takes a lot of heat for your hair to look flawless—from drying to styling. But when you jump right in, you’re not giving your delicate hair follicles a fighting chance.

To prevent damage, and for a better overall look, use a heat protectant. When heat is applied directly to the hair, the hair shaft opens, making it vulnerable to damage or even color loss. But protectants cover the follicle so it stays sealed and the shaft maintains moisture, so your hair’s texture, shine, and fluidity will stay gorgeous (plus your heating tools will work better!).

With cold mornings coming, there will be less air drying and more blow drying. Can your strands take the heat? We’ve gathered our favorite b-glowing Heat Protectants, and all of them will help safeguard your locks while you have fun playing with different looks!

Sachajuan, Straight and Shine Spray: From the beloved brand known for its simple but effective hair care, we love this spray because it cares for you hair in the best ways: heat protection, added shine, touchable texture, and it’s easy to rinse out.

Shea Terra Organics, Argan Face and Body Oil: Hailing from Morocco, this specialized treatment is made from the Argania Spinosa tree, which produces oil that has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. You’ll reap reparative benefits, and it’s 100% natural. While you can use it everywhere on your body (score!), it also helps moisturize dry hair.

Oscar Blandi, Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray: This dry spray is packing keratin proteins that nourish and strengthen, so you’re fully covered. We love it because it’s also great for restyling, so you can reshape your look throughout the day with added shine and stronger hold.

Rare E’l’ements, Marula Cocktail: No, it’s not for drinking, but it is a great mix of nutrient-rich oils. You can use it as a leave-in conditioner for instant shine, added moisture, breakage prevention, shaping, styling, and flyaway and frizz control. It made our list because it’s lightweight and silicone free.

Leonor Greyl, Huile de Palme: This treatment can be used as a pre-shampoo or on its own, and it’s natural oils work to soften hair. It’ll detangle, as well as protect, with gentle, environmentally friendly ingredients.
