In fact, the best jobs are the ones that make you do a double take at your friend because she just looks so rejuvenated but you can't figure out what she's done. What if you could mimic those same results with makeup and skincare? With It Cosmetics you can! They work with plastic surgeons to infuse cutting edge anti-aging technology into high performance products designed to give you your most beautiful skin ever. Wave the It Cosmetics magic wand and watch as your skincare problems are solved…
Whether they're large or small, pores are not a woman's best friend. Especially when oil and dirt get trapped inside and cause unsightly blackheads. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores HD micro finishing powder is an all-over face finishing/setting powder that smoothes fine lines, leaves a poreless finish and reduces discoloration with help from hydro collagen, silk, and vitamin K! Simply sweep a small amount over finished makeup for an airbrushed complexion.
Here at b-glowing we're always on the lookout for the perfect mascara that suits all of our picky lash needs. It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara does just that with it's specialty lash ball tip that is designed to reach the far inner and outer lashes of the eye. This revolutionary product is equivalent to 5 mascaras in 1 - volumizing, lash primer, lash enhancing serum, lash tint, and a lash comb/curler!Dark eye circles are nobody's friend and sometimes are just genetic no matter how much sleep or zero stress you have in your life. It's quite amazing how refreshed a person looks after a little of the right concealer is applied there. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye was created with Brazil's leading plastic surgeons to finally farewell under eye puffiness and discoloration with high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen. This is a full coverage concealer that stays put no matter what and actually strengthens the delicate skin of the under eye area too!

Does your boyfriend have a romantic night planned for Valentine's Day? If so, he probably put a lot of preparation and hard work into making it a night you won't forget so if you're wanting to look extra nice to show your appreciation then check out our Valentine's beauty prep routine below.
A beautiful complexion starts with great skincare and the sloughing away of those pesky dead skin cells. Before any big event or date we swear by the Kinara Red Carpet Facial Kit. In just 3 steps (peel, neutralize, mask) your skin is exfoliated and left in a more radiant and refined state for makeup application. It's like a professional treatment you can do in your own home!
You can't apply foundation without a primed and moisturized face and we love the benefits we see with the Eve Lom TLC Radiance Cream. This lightweight cream is great for all skin conditions and not only hydrates but provides a plumping and lifting boost that you see for hours. I think it leaves the skin with a lovely glow as well.
I love to highlight the face with a subtle glow and I've recently discovered It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Radiance Illuminator for that very purpose. Just swiping a bit over tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose and middle of forehead creates a lit-from-within glow that makes skin appear more youthful and vibrant.
If you're wanting to not wear a heavy makeup look then we love Jouer's Bare Beauty Collection. One, for the unbeatable price. For only $58 you get 4 products that enhance your own natural beauty, leaving you feeling fabulous and still looking like yourself. We also love that that all of these can be connected into 1 palette making them a breeze to grab on the go and carry in your purse for touch-ups.Read More »

Every once in awhile a product comes around that really catches our attention. For myself and our founder Lisa it was the day Bye Bye Redness™ by It Cosmetics came into our office. I have to admit at the beginning it wasn't love at first sight because upon opening the jar I was taken aback by the dark tint of the product (keep in mind this is supposed to be universally complimenting), and I thought there is no way this is going to work for me.
The next morning applied a little to my nose and cheeks and nearly screamed out of joy. I've tried a lot of products claiming redness reduction, both in skincare & makeup, but they didn't do anything nor looked natural on my skin. I have an olive tone and Lisa pink but we both can wear this neutralizing correcting cream. You only need to use a tiny amount as it goes on with a perfect airbrush application and just melts into the skin looking very natural. Seriously obsessed.

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.

Spring has arrived! Whether you are looking for a new makeup look or craving a hairstyle change, we have the scoop on what's hot this season. Check out our top four beauty trends for spring 2013.
Sleek Hair - Take a break from the teasing comb and try a sleeker style. Models on the runway have been sporting less volume in both up and down 'do's. The key to this look is shiny simplicity that is frizz-free. Use Klorane's Leave-In with Papyrus Milk to calm fly aways without weighing the hair down. Tame tresses into a sophisticated ponytail, or leave locks loose - applying to the top layer from the crown down.
Bold Lips - Be brave and be bold. This spring, select a spicy shade to slather on your smoocher. If you tend to shy away from the more brilliant colors, tone down your look by keeping the eyes neutral. If you are ready to embrace the drama, pair your militant mouth with classic cat-eye liner. Ready to pump up the power to your pucker? Try new BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Aurora - a gorgeous coral red shade. Or give yourself over to the dark side with Kevyn Aucoin's The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses - a deep blood red.
Pastels are everywhere this season in both fashion and beauty. Whether it's a peach blouse or a lilac eye, pastels almost always make an appearance in the spring, regardless of what year it is. Looking to implement this palette into your daily routine? Here are 3 easy ways you can play with pastels, without breaking the bank.
Peach is flattering to every skin tone because it resembles a natural flush. All you have to do is figure out the right tone of peach to flatter your complexion.
Fair - We recommend a softer hue with hints of pink, like IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks.
Medium - Go for pigments with more of an orange tint, try Jouer Cosmetics Tint in Fawn.
Darker - Complemented by a peach with a redder base, we recommend By Terry Blush Terrybly - Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb.
Say it with a Scarf
If you are new to pastel hues or if there is a new one you want to try, start with a scarf. Colors take a while to get used to, and may not all complement your coloring. Before investing in an expensive dress or jacket, test the trend with something smaller. If you aren't a scarf fan, this can also be accomplished with a necklace, clutch, or ballet flat.
I Have an EYE-dea
Pastel eyes! Eyeshadow is a lovely way to pose in pastels, and there is a flattering way to wear every shade! The trick to looking trendy and not … from the 80's, is to combine the pastel with a neutral shade. Here are some examples to get you going.
- Blend a frosty pink lid into a light grey crease, try ILIA Multi-Stick in Tenderly.
- Combine mint green shimmer with a caramel brown eyeliner, try Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment in Smitten.
- Mix a classic black smoky eye with a baby blue highlight, try By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow in Paradise Island.

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.
BY TERRY Blush Terrybly in Erotic Pink: When you want something a little less natural, this blush will definitely make a statement. Nothing too over the top, but this bubble gum pink is very feminine and always playful.
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.

Don’t you just love something new? Well, how about new products—and new colors—from three beloved brands? Talk about a great way to start your Monday.
Perfect timing goes to IT Cosmetics. Just as we’re on the brink of a sure-to-be-busy holiday season, IT unveils the Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector. Soon, you’ll most likely be running around gathering supplies for holiday parties, or even traveling to your relatives, and, chances are, you won’t be getting as much sleep as you’d like.
For those mornings you wake in a borrowed bed, or on borrowed time, grab the Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector—your full night’s rest in a creamy concealer. The jar packs a lot of magic, as it brightens under your eyes while battling dark circles. It’s lightweight and delicate—everything you need after having a night that was anything but that.
To make those eyes pop, Ilia just released a new mascara in four beautiful shades. Your lashes will be strengthened (and lengthened) thanks to this natural mascara. It’s long-lasting, flake-free, and conditioning, to boot.
Ilia also revamped its wildly popular Lip Conditioners and Lipsticks by adding new shades. You can now grab Lust for Life—a fall limited edition mulberry color—in a Lip Conditioner, and Perfect Day—a fall limited edition toned-down coral color—in a Lipstick.
Peter Thomas Roth is also contributing to a beautiful month with its Neuroliquid Volufill Youth Moisturizing Hydra-Gel. Amino acids stimulate collagen to restore the appearance of fullness and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Long-term, you’re looking at improved moisture and visibly firmer skin. Immediately, you can expect luminosity and smoothness.
