Shop By Terry cosmetics and skincare here!
Refinery29 is a stylish girls playground and they also have great taste in beauty picks. Last week By Terry's Rose de Rose Sheer Liquid Blush was featured because of the luminous finish and rosy radiance it leaves behind. A lot of us are split between three sides when it comes to blush - cream, powder, or liquid. A glance in my blush drawer will tell you that I lean mostly towards powder but occasionally something comes along that makes me a believer. By Terry's Rose de Rose Sheer Liquid Blush goes on ultra smooth and it's sheer micro gel texture lets you build color step by step. Jessica Alba's makeup artist Fiona Stiles loves the color on fair to olive skin!

Our skin needs more than a single dose, but an assortment of effective products that can target the many different concerns our skin will go through as the years pass by.

I'm a big movie buff so am always seeing the latest talent to take Tinseltown and the world by storm through their good looks, acting chops and fashion sense off set. When you have the trifecta of all three, you will usually find these people categorized into a very special group known as 'The A List.' The idea of this list that very few people will ever be on got me thinking of how I could translate it into one for beauty. There are products the rich and famous swear by that are also not of reach of our pocketbooks. They simply work and have built a cult status reputation for amazing results. Like a great movie you see many times, the products below will have you coming back for more!
Neil George's Indian Gooseberry Oil will have you won over after you feel the luxurious texture and gorgeous smell. Just a few pumps of this through damp hair will leave it shiny, silky and frizz free. Indian Gooseberry is one of the worlds's most powerful antioxidants and women in India have sworn by it to nourish and strengthen their hair.
Here at b-glowing, we're a big fan of multi-purpose products. They definitely come in handy in packing situations as well as mornings where we need a bit of extra sleep but don't want to miss a step in our beauty routine. Adara Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is one of those products that can be used as a body or face moisturizer, intensive hair treatment, and a hair oil to smooth split ends and flyaways. It does harden in cooler temperatures so just run it under so warm water and enjoy!
Beach waves are a lot harder to get than just going for a quick beach swim and the tangles that can come from saltwater are hardly worth the effort. When we want to create loose, undone waves we swear by the T3 SinglePass Whirl Curling Wand. The secret is its tapered, clip less barrel that gives perfect results in half the time it normally would take you because of the Tourmaline technology!
The Jouer Bare Beauty Collection is a ready to wear palette for only $58 that contains four key products to create a gorgeous and natural makeup look. The neutral tones allow you to play up your own beauty while still looking like you. It comes with a nude lip gloss, soft pink cheek tint, 3 powder eyeshadow trio and an Essential Matte Touch. This is a new product so might not be an A-list member to the world yet, but it definitely is to us!
