Clark's Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tints

Posted on 05/24/2010

Have you tried Clark’s Botanicals new lip tints?  We love these delicate colors in a healthy, healing ultra rich lip conditioning treatment.  What could be better?  We get amazing color that is perfect for summer while we protect and condition our sweet lips. 

Our personal favorite is Carlotta Pink.  It’s a cherry upbeat pink that flatters any skin tone.  It’s utterly feminine and the epitome of pretty.  Keep this baby in your purse to sweeten up your pretty smile any time!

If you're not already familiar with Clark's Botanicals please read about the man behind this wonderful brand.  Francesco Clark is truly an inspiration!  He is paralyzed from a swimming accident and is a true source of inspiration to anyone who believes they have the odds against them.  Nothing can hold you back!  All it takes it ingenuity, innovative and passion.  Francesco was recently featured in the PBS Special "This Emotional Life"

Some skincare lines come and go. This year's miracle ingredient is often next year's outdated science. Then there are those exceptional lines that not only deliver results, but are truly compelling because they are based on real human experience and a brand narrative not created by a corporate marketing team, but by a personal history. Clark's Botanicals is that brand.  These healing and soothing products make a dramatic difference in the appearance and texture of your skin. 

All Clark's Botanicals products today feature Jasmine Absolute, a precious essential oil that naturally rebalances skin. Derived from nocturnally-blooming flowers, this extract is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and immuno-stimulating. It works to calm and heal a broad spectrum of skin types, from young to mature, oily to dry, and normal to sensitive.

Vapour Organic Beauty:  Aura Multi-Stain $28

Check out these super juicy colors! I softly dab a bit of this on the apples of my cheeks.  It gives me soft, radiant pink cheeks.  Fresh and young looking!  You can also use this multi-tasking beauty product on your lips (as a lip stain), and over primed eye lids for a hint of sheer color.  This baby one The Best of Beauty from Allure magazine in 2010.

 

 

Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment

Light, whipped, shimmery and sheer!  Yum!!  I absolutely love these colors for Spring.  Who doesn’t want to wear these soft sheer colors this Spring and Summer?  They are ideal and I’ve been lusting after the soft green “Dream” in particular.  These barely-there colors are a sheer radiant veil of color to your eye lids.  Simply dreamy!

EF | STUDIO Must Have Products

Posted on 07/26/2011

New York….concrete jungles where dreams are made true, lights will inspire you…..

I don't know about lights inspiring me, but makeup certainly does and especially when I hear about brands that are breaking the mold in cosmetics like EF | STUDIO, Eddie Funkhouser and Kaden's new range out of New York City!

 

This powerful and creative duo are bringing function back to the way we choose our makeup. They want to help eliminate the clutter of numerous makeup products that aren't doing a darn thing for us except taking up valuable space. Makeup should be fun, not stressful, and that comes down to having studio grade formulations that actually do what they say as well as having makeup options that takes the guessing game out the picture.

We've recently been adding a lot of great brands to b-glowing, and the cosmetics range Jouer is one of them! The brand should be considered Beauty’s Little Black dress: Like the perfect LBD, Jouer is a true essential in every modern woman’s beauty wardrobe. It is chic, simple and designed to be the perfect fit for anytime and any occasion.

What I love about Jouer is the simplicity. The colors are very fashion forward but also extremely easy to apply. Sometimes cosmetics can appear intimidating but Jouer is very modern, timeless but at the same time can be simple and still very chic. The color options are all to die for and really are about working with what you have to create a updated, sexier, and more beautiful version of yourself. A little tweak so to speak...

2. Metal Moments - Use Jemma Kidd's Grey Eye Wardrobe and Stay Put Liner in Gunmetal for smoking out the lid. Smokey eyes really give off a "come hither"

Lighten Up: Soften Your Colors for Spring

Posted on 05/17/2012

Sensual Skin EnhancerSpring can kind of be a weird transition time between the winter and summer in terms of the tone of your skin. While you’ll always have the same undertone (cool, warm or neutral), the darkness of your skin can go from ghostly white to sun-kissed over the course of a few weeks. The hot colors for spring and summer are often the same, and the key to not making your makeup look louder than a bullhorn during the spring is to keep it soft-looking.

Tips for Soft Springtime Makeup

Concealer: Adjust the color of concealer you use during the spring just as you would your wardrobe. As you spend more time in the sun, you’ll need to use a slightly darker shade of concealer. Ideally, you should use a color that’s a bit lighter than your foundation. The Sensual Skin Enhancer from Kevyn Aucoin Cosmetics has 16 different concealer shades that perfectly cover your blemishes regardless of the season.

UV protection: Those who are truly fashion-forward know you should use SPF protection all year, even on the cloudiest days. The need for UV protection increases as the months start to get warmer. Make sure the daytime moisturizer you use has an SPF component in it. If you use any type of foundation, opt for one that also protects your skin from the sun’s rays.

Eye makeup: Bright eye colors go hand-in-hand with spring and summer. When the season’s hottest colors are particularly bright, layer on the colors lightly during the spring. For some of the best springtime eye shadow color combinations, check out the Essential Eye Shadow set in the Kevyn Aucoin makeup line.

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.

Make Over with BY TERRY Graphism

Posted on 10/07/2013

Shop b-glowing.com.

BY TERRY just debuted its new Graphism makeup collection, and our staff had a great time testing these amazing products. They not only create a beautiful, sophisticated look, but they also feel even better on your skin.

We were lucky enough to have four Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge to experiment with, and the pigments and consistency left us completely blown away. This lipstick will give you a punch of color, while maintaining a super-rich moisturizing feel.

We really love them all, but two of our favorites are the Be Red and the Plum Plump Girl. One is a vibrant red with a neutral base that will look good on all skin tones. It can sometimes be hard to find a good red with so many different shades from which to choose, but we are confident anyone can pull this shade off.

Plum Plump Girl is a daring, violet fuchsia that is great for fall. While it might not be your every-day, go-to color, it is perfect for an evening out or when you’re feeling especially bold.

BY TERRY is known for its Ombre Blackstar Cream eye shadow, and this product always gets rave reviews. What we’re most excited for is the two new matte colors: Black Matte and Brown Perfection. You get the creaminess of cream shimmer shadow but with a demure finish, plus each color can be layered for the desired effect and shade. We were able to get a light contour with the Brown Perfection, but also amp it up for a smokier look.

Then we tried the new Crayon Khol Terrybly additions in two truly pigment-packed colors: Royal Navy and Emerald Evasion. Here you can see just how bright and high voltage the Royal Navy shade is. It’s an easy way to make a statement without having to do a lot of work. With just a little mascara and liner, the look was totally eye catching. We couldn’t stop staring at it! The green is equally as beautiful, but dialed down a notch, so it can absolutely be worn to a more conservative occasion.

Remember, to MAKE BEAUTY. ® is to Make Creativity! Shop these picks and all BY TERRY.
