6 Things To Remember When Looking For Blush

  • Work with your coloring. People with light hair tend to look better with a slightly ruddier color. But, avoid colors with too much brown on the upper and middle of your cheek bones. Brown shades on the cheek bones create shading. This is the opposite of what you want the blush to do. You want your blush to highlight and bring out your cheek bones.
  • Try the basics. Pinks, peaches, rose and berry are all great base colors and they come in a variety of tones, from light to deep. Play with the colors you like from these categories. It’s alright to mix and match blush colors. It’s about finding the right color for you, and not everyone finds their perfect color pre-made.
  • Opt for a cream blush if your skin is dry or heavily lined. Powder can settle into fine lines. For oily skin, stick with the powder blush.
  • Try not to use your bronzer as a blush. Bronzers tend to have a brown base. If you use a bronzer, apply it all over the face before you apply your blush. Then add your blush color to the cheeks for a more natural finish
  • Use two colors if you want a shading effect. For more definition to your cheek bones, apply a slightly darker shade of the same color base under your cheek bones, in the hollows of your cheeks. Use a light hand and be sure to blend upwards into a light matching shade applied to your cheek bones.
  • Choose a shade that compliments your lipstick. This helps keep your look more uniform and natural. If you’re wearing very light lipstick of a clear gloss, try a cheek stain instead of traditional blush. Cheek stain will give a natural healthy glow.

♥ A Pretty Review♥ Make Up Forever HD Foundation

Alrighty pretty girls... Yessss...I tried it to see what ALL the hype was about! I got a sample from MUFE in 170...I matched it on the spot (I'm good at that ;)! they sent me the 170 HD...and the HD Primer! I also got a sample from Sephora along with the Yellow corrector. I applied the yellow to take away some of the redness....the primer and then the 170. It was great!!! now, I usually don't do liquid foundation because my skin totally dislikes it...but this was pretty cool! It gave me a semi matte finish and it lasted all day, I'd totally use this if i were doing pictures/photoshoots on myself or a client. I still prefer my good ole EG Mineral Foundation though :)

DId You Know....

*Honey remedy for skin blemishes...cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight!

*Vinegar to heal bruises...soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.

*Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?

MAC Hello Kitty Collection and PICS!


From WWD:
MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with Sanrio Global Consumer Products to create a Hello Kitty color cosmetics collection.
The line will arrive on MAC’s Web site Feb. 10, in North American stores on Feb. 12 and into overseas stores in March.
“MAC has been mining pop culture since the brand was founded,” said John Demsey, group president of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. “This is a sexy and innocent fashion line, and a true MAC moment. In these times, everyone can use a little fun — and a little Kitty.”
“The partnership was a no-brainer,” said James Gager, senior vice president and creative director of MAC Worldwide. “We cater to people who love to play with makeup.”
While in many licensing partnerships, the licensor shops his or her property around, MAC went after Sanrio, Hello Kitty’s owner, to do the deal. “They had never done makeup before, and I was certain that all those women who already own a bit of Hello Kitty would also want to own branded makeup,” said Gager.
“We are thrilled to partner with a brand that shares the vision of offering an innovative, authentic and transforming experience to our loyal fan base,” said Janet Hsu, president of Sanrio. Sanrio’s worldwide retail sales of licensed products for 2007 is estimated at $5 billion.
While the 34-year-old Hello Kitty character is usually assumed to be a cat, she is actually a girl, according to Sanrio. And a girl without a mouth, so she “speaks from the heart,” the company said. “She may not have a mouth, but she’s going to sell a lot of lipstick,” cracked Demsey, noting that a waiting list for the items will go live on Jan. 7 at
“To me, MAC Hello Kitty embodies the ultimate beauty icon,” said Jennifer Balbier, senior vice president of product development for MAC Worldwide. “She’s sweet and sexy, slightly edgy, and appeals to a wide range of customers. We wanted to reflect that through a sweet side, but also something slightly mischievous when it came to the colors. I started out by creating a palette of pinks, since they fit and always trend well in the spring. And this look is so much about the eyes that we did two eye shadow quads.” The Lucky Tom quad has violet blue, brown, gold and pink-coral shades, while the Too Dolly palette has mint, blue-silver, pale pink and magenta shades.
“We incorporated glitter eyeliners because she loves anything that twinkles, and we took the coral and hot pink theme and did pretty, poppy [colored] blush,” added Balbier.
While this collection is intended to have a sophisticated presentation, MAC hopes to appeal to younger fans with two shades of lip conditioners.
The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture. The bulk of the items are in the former category: six shades of lipstick with names like Fashion Mews and Strayin’, each $14; six Lipglass shades, each $14; and two tinted lip conditioners, $14.50 each; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades and retail for $38; two shades of pigment are $19.50 each, and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink — are $17.50 each. Four Glitter Eye Liners, each $16.50, two shades of Beauty Powder, each $22; three shades of nail polish, each $11; a black mascara, $12, and false lashes, $12, round out the color offerings. Shades range from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens.
Hello Kitty Kouture is intended to be the high end of the collection. Two shades of Dazzleglass, each $28, each feature a reusable silver chain pendant with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals on black with a pink crystal bow. Sheer Mystery Powder, $90 and available in three shades, is packaged in a silver powder compact with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals with a pink crystal bow on a black background.
“We wanted to have affordable luxury and a high-low aspect, so it made sense to do the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and Hello Kitty Kouture,” said Demsey.
The Hello Kitty Colour items, a Petite Makeup Bag, $22, and a medium Makeup Bag, $35, will be in all doors, currently about 581 department and specialty stores in North America including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, as well as MAC’s 138 freestanding stores in North America and at Internationally, the items will be in 1,307 doors in 69 countries, including 296 MAC freestanding stores outside North America. Hello Kitty Kouture will be available at MAC stores and only. At the maximum, the collection will be available for eight weeks.
A plush doll, $42; purse mirror, $22, and three-brush collection, $49.50, will be available at MAC stores, Nordstrom doors and only. A mirrored key clip, $16; beaded bracelet, $34, will be sold in MAC retail stores and at only, and a tote, $45 and soft vanity kit, $55, will be exclusive to These items are intended to animate the counter presentation and create an entire Hello Kitty world at retail, Gager noted.
While none of the executives would discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that the limited edition MAC Hello Kitty collection could do upwards of $12 million in North American retail sales. That projection is slightly larger than that of the hit Barbie collection.
In-store visuals, shot by Nick Knight, show the polar opposite aspects of the collection. One is an image of a blonde model holding a black vinyl Hello Kitty doll, which will be part of the accessory line. The other visual is what Gager terms “more of a dominatrix creature.” The point, said Gager, is to show that makeup can be transformative. Makeup was done by Val Garland, with hair by Sam McKnight.
And Demsey promises the surprises aren’t over yet. “There will be more products to come in the next three months with this partnership,” he said.

I've been wanting to try out a few of their brushes since hearing on YT that they are pretty decent. So I grabbed a bronzer came with the bronzer and angled blush/bronzing brush! The color of the bronzer is GORGGGG!!!! I use it as a highlight though ;) and the brush...blehh its ok...its really soft but it makes the powder what I mean?! I only paid 1.80 for it too.....

Revlon's Mix and Mingle Palette/Soft On The Eyes Pigment

RAVVVEEE! I went to Walgreen's last night with the boys and WHOOAAA...they were having some type of super sale going on. I mean...there were like makeup products that were 7 and 8 dollars off *shocked face*! Anywho...I hurried my big behind right over and began looking QUICK! I grabbed 3 things, a Revlon lip palette and 2 Revlon loose pigment palettes! The lipgloss has 3 different colors in it and goes on so smooth I think I may go buy like 4 or 5 more! The loose shadows are nice, the lighter colors look a little chalky but will work with a great primer!

Hey ladies! As promised, I have a review for you :) As you all know I've been on a serious hunt for the perfect foundation! Im soooo upset with my MAC Studio Fix, I believe it's the reason why I've been breaking out so bad lately. ANywho, I contacted Michelle from EG Minerals to let her know what I was going through...a week later I received a sample package from her. Let me just say this.. I AM INLOVE WITH EG MINERALS FOUNDATION! I put it on and the color matched SO WELL! You all can visit my youtube chan. to see the full review. My skin felt free and covered...yet still natural and radiant :). Overall, I give these products a 10!

I am wearing the Lynette from EG Minerals, it's apart of the Youthful Glow (YGlow) Line...very natural, medium coverage with a beautiful glow!
