Simplify Your Morning Routine

Posted on 06/29/2012

Shop all of Kevyn Aucoin's products here.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Between getting the kids prepared for school, making sack lunches, taking out the trash and the million other errands you have to do before you can walk out the door for work, it might seem like you have to get up before daybreak just to get through a seemingly tedious makeup routine. Thank goodness for Kevyn Aucoin makeup products and beauty tools, which help transform your morning makeup routine from laborious to lovely.

The 1-Minute Skin Enhancer

For the mornings when there’s no time for foundation and concealer, reach for the Sensual Skin Enhancer, one of the fastest time-saving tricks in the Kevyn Aucoin makeup line. After moisturizing your face, dab a bit of the enhancer under your eyes and over blemishes to conceal them. Then blend in a pin-sized amount of enhancer over the rest of your face. Apply more of the product as desired for greater coverage.

Kevyn Aucoin on Beauty Perfection: "It's Boring"

Posted on 03/22/2012

Kevyn Aucoin Beauty Perfection Image

Perfection is boring. If a face doesn’t have mistakes, it’s nothing.

This refreshing, unexpected quote from Kevyn Aucoin represents the central struggle and triumph in this makeup innovator’s tragically short life.

Kevin Aucoin’s childhood and early adulthood were marked by rejection and violence. Yet rather than give in to self-pity, he survived incessant bullying, moved to New York and eventually became one of the most sought-after makeup artists of our time. Celebrities so respected his work that he earned as much as $10,000 for a single magazine shoot. He published several gorgeous best-selling guides on makeup, and his own line of cosmetics thrives past his death, in 2002, of painkillers he took to cope with a rare pituitary tumor. Yet this “rags-to-riches” life story is more than just one of wild success – it’s also about vision, passion and drive.

Makeup was always a central focus in Kevyn Aucoin’s life. As a child, he frequently did his sisters’ makeup and recorded the results with a Polaroid camera. (He continued this habit throughout his life; the inside covers of his best-selling book Making Faces features dozens of these Polaroids from throughout Aucoin’s career.) His childhood home of Lafayette, La., wasn’t very tolerant of Kevin Aucoin’s unusual preferences for gentle activities over more traditional male hobbies. At the age of six, Aucoin realized that he was gay, and the bullying began in earnest.

Clarisonic Skin Care System: How Long Before I See Results?

Posted on 03/29/2012

Clarisonic Skin Care SystemShop the full Clarisonic collection here!

The Clarisonic skin care system costs a pretty penny, and shoppers always ask how long it takes to see results. You work hard for your money, and the last thing you want to do is spend it on a dud. The length of time it takes to see results from the Clarisonic skin care system depends on your unique skin care needs, but you will feel a difference right away.

Benefits of the Clarisonic Skin Care System

The Clarisonic skin care system uses a removable brush head that moves at sonic speed (more than 300 times per second) yet is gentle enough to use twice a day. The result of the sonic motion is skin that is cleaner, less oily, clearer, feels softer and looks younger. The brush helps remove makeup six times better than using a washcloth alone and can also help heal imperfections. You’ll notice that your face feels instantly cleaner and smoother the first time you use a Clarisonic brush.

PRTTY PEAUSHUN Review

Posted on 06/20/2011

I had a moment of clarity as I looked down at my white, colorless feet and realized not that it’s time for a pedicure but for a tan! The season for barbecues, bikini’s, and bronze has arrived so I thought I’d share an amazing self-tanning body lotion called PRTTY Peaushun!

PRTTY Peashun is a tan-aholics dream, not only because it delivers a gorgeous, natural looking tan in five different shade options but because it has skin tightening benefits, diminishes the appearance of cellulite and delivers a subtle, luminous glow.

Loved by models, actors, makeup artists and b-glowing staffers alike, PRTTY Peaushun is a definite must-have summer product. If you can’t go to St Tropez, you can look like you have!

Clarisonic

Posted on 05/24/2010

Shop the full Clarisonic collection here!

Ok. So we’re behind the times. How did we not try Clarisonic sooner? Shame on us! We are obsessed with the power of Clarisonic. The guy who is behind the Super Sonic Toothbrush also is behind Clarisonic. What they did for our teeth... Clarisonic does for our face. The sonic action gently clarifies and revitalizes the skin without the harsh chemicals or abrasion you’ll find in microdermabrasion and other treatments.  By cleansing daily with a Sonic Skin Cleansing System, you’ll remove dirt and oil better than with traditional manual washing. Even makeup is removed six times better than standard cleansing and skin is left so clean it actually absorbs products like serums and moisturizers better. All of our favorite skincare products like Kinerase, kaplan MD, Kimberly Sayer Organics, Lisa Hoffman and Nuxe now work even better.  Hard to imagine that, but it’s true.

Clarisonic Reviews from those with Mature Skin

Posted on 03/02/2011

Shop the full Clarisonic collection here!

A note from b-glowing.com founder, Lisa:

A lot of you might think Clarisonic is for acne-prone or younger skin, but I am here to tell you that you are never too old to benefit from the use of a Clarisonic device. My step-mother is 65 years young and recently ordered a Clarisonic Plus from b-glowing.com.  She has dry skin and the standard signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. After about 4 days of using her new Clarisonic Plus, she noticed a huge improvement in the overall tone and quality of her skin. Her complexion has increased radiance and glow, and her pores are less noticeable.

Introducing Eve Lom!

Posted on 05/02/2012

Our latest skincare brand arrival, Eve Lom, began 25 years ago by one of the world's leading facialists. Years of knowledge and dealing with women's skin care concerns brought about the creation of many award winning products with natural based ingredients that bring the spa like atmosphere and results into your home. Eve Lom products are for a woman who appreciates luxury and highly effective skincare. 

Although the entire range is amazing, one of the products that has taken the world by storm is the Eve Lom Cleanser, a multi-purpose product that is the basis for the entire skincare regime. Vogue once described it as 'the best cleanser in the world' and we can understand why. Used in conjunction with the muslin cloth it cleanses, tones and exfoliates in one step! The cloth also enables the skin circulation process to begin which results in a perfectly balanced skin and radiant complexion.

 

For those lip balm junkies like me, you'll appreciate Eve Lom's Kiss Mix. No need to change your lip balm with the seasons as this is a year round product to keep lips moisturized and protected. It leaves a glossy finish behind while Zinc Oxide heals chapped lips and menthol cools the redness. 

 

Eve Lom's TLC Cream is the 'airbrush' of moisturizers. This intense and regenerating cream gives the skin some much needed tender, love and care with ingredients like Calendula Oil, Euphrasia Extract and healing Arnica Oil. Your skin becomes more supple and soft and you can say farewell to the deep fine lines.

Tammy Fender Epi PeelLooking like they came off the shelves of an old-school luxury apothecary, Tammy Fender skin care products take a holistic approach. Tammy Fender’s line offers immediate therapeutic effects that help promote health and healing on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. One of the best ways to introduce yourself to the purity and luxury found in these products is with a facial in a jar.

Combined with purifying clay, the Epi Peel is a multi-purpose exfoliating mask and peel. The micro-exfoliants in the oxygenating and revitalizing formula gently help remove dead surface cells, eliminate impurities, refine pores and polish your skin.

Apply the Tammy Fender Epi Peel up to three times a week to clean skin; let it sit for five minutes, and use a moist cloth to remove. This peel is great for all skin types, except those that are sunburned or have pustular acne.
