Make Over Your Make-Up Bag

Avoid Breakouts By Cleaning Out Your Make-Up Bag
DZT1968 Handle Round Dot Large Cosmetic Bag Travel Makeup Organizer Case Holder With Mirror
If you haven't touched your electric blue eye shadow since you wore your mermaid Halloween costume last year, its time to throw it away. Using spoiled products can have ugly consequences from breakouts to eye infections. Even though it's contrary to what your parents taught you, do not share your makeup products. Would you want to borrow someone's toothbrush? When it comes to getting pretty, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Lips: Glosses applied with your fingers should be replaced every six months, since germs migrate easily into open-pot containers. Lip glosses with wands (or lipsticks) last longer, up to a year.

            Eyes: Toss all of your eye shadows every three to six months. Because mascara comes into the closest contact with eyes (and the interior of the tube is a prime microbe-growing medium) replace it every three months.




Nails: Throw out nail polish after a year. By then, it starts to separate or dry up and when you apply it, it will go on streaky.

            SPF: Once sunscreen is past its prime, you risk having no SPF protection. The best way to keep track of your sunscreen is to use enough that you don't have any left by the end of each season.

Brushes: If you splurge on your make up brushes, then protect your investments by using a brush cleaner to wash them off every two to three weeks.

Face: Replace foundations after one year. Loose or pressed powder stays fresh for up to two years. Use a new sponge every month to prevent skin irritation.
By abiding by these simple guidelines, you'll protect yourself from the ugly consequences of using old beauty products.





5 Makeup Brands for the Green Woman

Saving the World and Looking Gorgeous

Being green and being beautiful doesn't mean you have to be one or the other. It also doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice quality or spend more money either. The following are five makeup brands that offer green and organic makeup for the eco-conscious woman.

Burt's Bees
One of the most well known organic brand of makeup is Burt's Bees. This brand can be found anywhere, it's hard to miss the yellow and sometimes green packaging. Burt's Bees (link here) has everything from skin care products like lotion and cuticle creams to makeup, like lip glosses and lip sticks. Burt's Bees prides themselves on creating products that are made with as much natural ingredients as possible. Not only are their products natural but their packaging are made from recycled materials or materials that can be recycled. Burt's Bees prices are affordable since it's sold in most drug stores, Wal-Mart and Target.


Physicians Formula Organic wear makeup
Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin CC Cream, Light/Medium, 1.2 Fluid OuncesIn recently years many drug store brand cosmetics have jumped on the green/organic wagon and among them is Physicians Formula. Physicians Formula now has a line of organic makeup called Organic wear. Their organic line of makeup costs about the same as their regular line which keeps it affordable for everyone. Physicians Formula Organic wear line is 100 percent natural and certified organic color cosmetics. Not only are their makeup natural but the packaging uses paper for their compacts which is 93 percent less plastic than regular compacts, and their brushes are made with natural goat hair.

E.L.F mineral makeup
Another very affordable makeup line is E.L.F which stands for Eyes Lips Face. Some of their products are sold in store but only certain stores. I find it's much easier to just order from their website eyeslipsface.com though. Trying to find an E.L.F product I want in stores is harder than trying to find a needle in a haystack. E.L.F's regular line of makeup only cost a dollar but they have a mineral line that sells for higher, yet they're still affordable. The price range for E.L.F's mineral makeup is from $3 to $8. E.L.F's mineral makeup are made with 100 percent natural minerals that have been crushed into silky powders. Even their mineral lipstick is made with natural ingredients. The packaging for E.L.F's mineral makeup line are all made with recyclable material too.

Almay Pure Blends
Another drug store makeup brand that has joined the organic, green trend is Almay. Recently Almay has come out with their own organic line of makeup they call Pure Blends. Almay's Pure Blends makeup line consists of eye shadows, mascara, lipgloss, blush and bronzer, and loose finishing powder. All of their products are made with over 95 percent natural ingredients. Much like the other brands Almay's Pure Blends makeup line is also packaged in recyclable material.


Nvey Eco
Liquid Foundation Makeup: Nvey Eco Moisture Rich Fluid Foundation 510 Cool Ivory. Organic Cosmetic and Best Mineral Foundation for Flawless CoverageLastly there is Nvey Eco. This brand didn't become available in the states until 2006 and it claims to be the first truly organic collection of makeup. This brand hails from the land down under, Australia. You won't find Nvey Eco in drugstores or Wal-Mart and I'm not even sure if it can be found in Sephora, but if not Sephora you can always order off of their website at econveybeauty.com. Nvey Eco is a high end brand of makeup and thus it's more costly, but it costs as much as any brand of makeup you'll find at Sephora. Nvey Eco offers a wide selection of makeup to choose from, everything from foundation, to eyes to lip products.
With these five brands you can live green, doing your part to help the planet and your self, all the while looking fabulous.


Mineral Makeup: How to Enhance Beauty Without Harmful Additives


Mineral makeup is makeup without preservatives, fragrances or dyes. It consists of finely ground, all-natural minerals. It originated in the mid 1970's, but is currently exploding in market popularity.

             Proponents claim that it's gentler and better for the skin than traditional makeup. Beauty experts describe it as light, hypoallergenic and luminescent. The product is more effective on non-ethnic skin tones. It's available for prices ranging from $10-$50 and is one of the most highly talked about forms of makeup available.

            Some makeup has zinc oxide, which has skin anti-inflammatory properties. So certain types of makeup can actually have a calming effect on the skin. This makeup is non-comedongenic, meaning that it doesn't clog pores. This can be a very positive aspect to anyone who is acne prone.

             Mineral makeup is also known for its sun protective properties. Some brands have a minimum of SPF rating as high as 15. The American Cancer Society has put its seal of approval for sun protection on this makeup. The titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are primarily responsible for the sun block.

            Not all makeups labeled "mineral" are created equal and not all are free of colors and fillers. Just because the label says "all natural" doesn't mean that it is necessarily free of other chemicals. Nor does a label that says "all mineral formula" mean that there are no additives. You need to do your research. If pure and natural is your desire, read the fine print. The government doesn't define what the term means.

           A pearlizing agent, bismuth oxycloride, is a by-product of lead and copper processing. In quantity, this product can cause skin irritation and cystic acne, but it is not found in all mineral makeup It is also used as a filler and binder. If you have sensitive skin, avoid this ingredient.


Makeup Tips for Prom

5 Tips for the Perfect Look on Prom Night


So you got your dress, your rental car is waiting to be picked up, your shoes are perfect and your hair is finally doing what you want it too and prom is in an hour. The only thing you're missing is prom makeup to make your face shine this night. These tips will guide you in applying your makeup - as a prom makeup perfectly for prom night.




Prom Makeup Tip #1
Foundation: Using a good foundation that blends with your skin tone not only works as a great base before applying your other makeup but also helps to even out skin tone and cover blemishes. To find the right shade of foundation for your skin tone in a cosmetic store use your inner wrist area as a guide. Turn your wrist so that it is facing you and place it against the different shades of foundation to find the matching color shade. Use the foundation that matches closest.

Prom Makeup Tip #2
Blush: Adding blush to your cheeks on prom night can give you that special flushed look that adds sex appeal with youthful bliss. Use the correct type of blush for your complexion, paler complexions should use cool tones like rose colored blush and darker skin complexions should use warmer colors like bronze shades.




Prom Makeup Tip #3
Highlight a Feature: Choose your eyes or your lips to enhance with your prom makeup look. Highlighting both will look overly dramatic and make your face overly made up. If you choose to highlight your eyes line them dramatically with eyeliner and if you choose to go with highlighting your lips choose a shiny lipstick that is long lasting. (Avon's Perfect Wear Lipstick lasts for 6 hours without touch ups!).

Prom Makeup Tip #4
Lashes: Even if you have decided to highlight your lips and not your eyes you should remember to add some mascara to your lashes. Black and brown mascaras compliment all skin tones so use those colors for your prom night makeup. Remember to blot and don't be afraid to use fake lashes if you really have none to start with!




Prom Makeup Tip #5
Don't Over Do It and Don't Rush: Take your time doing your prom makeup so that it gets done right the first time. Less is really more when it comes to doing makeup since it is not used to change your entire appearance but to enhance the beautiful features you already have. Apply delicately and you will look beautiful on prom night!


Fairy Halloween Makeup Tips

How to Get the Perfect Fairy Look This Halloween

One of my all-time favorite things to be for Halloween is a fairy. This cute costume is simple and fun and always gives you a chance to sparkle. But in order to make the most of your fairy inspired Halloween costume, you are going to need just the right makeup. Here are some tips that will help you get that perfect fairy look.


Fairy Halloween Makeup Tips - Leticia La Rosa aved to Make-Up/Nail Art Inspiration

Start with the makeup you already have. You don't have to buy all new makeup for your fairy look. Most of the makeup you need will come from your regular makeup collection. By mostly using things you already have, you will save a lot of money on your Halloween look.
Find a few special makeup extras in the Halloween supplies. Halloween is a great holiday to find fun and unique makeup items. And it is often much cheaper than regular makeup. So don't think you'll have to spend a lot of money to add a few special touches. Try your local dollar store or Walmart for great Halloween makeup items.

Foundation. Start your fairy look with a great foundation. No need to buy anything special, just use your everyday foundation and apply as usual.
Eyeliner. The next step is eyeliner. Even if you don't wear this everyday, you will want to use it for fairy makeup. It will add a great pop to your eyes. It's fun to experiment with color. Using a bright blue, green, or purple eyeliner can add just the right touch of magic to your makeup. You can also keep it neutral with a brown or black eyeliner, if you'd rather use your eye shadow to play with color.

Pinterest Fairy Makeup Tips

Eye shadow. If you choose a neutral eyeliner, then you'll definitely want to use color in your eye shadow. Shimmery shades will give you the best fairy inspired look. Think of the color of your costume, and choose an eye shadow shade that will complement it. If you decide to use a brightly colored eyeliner, you won't want to play too much with the color of your eye shadow. Try a shimmery bronze or pink.

Mascara. Finish your eyes with plenty of mascara to make your eyes the focal point of your face. Use any color or brand that you like for your every day look.

Blush. Blush will add just the right glow to your beautiful fairy face. Go for a soft pink that complements your eye makeup.

Lipstick. When choosing a lipstick color, you'll also want to choose something soft. Since your eyes are going to be your emphasis, you don't want to draw too much attention elsewhere. Choose a soft shade that matches your blush.

Sparkles. Your fairy inspired makeup is never complete until you add on the sparkles! You can find sparkles in almost any color. I like to use pearl or silver because they usually match any color makeup or costume. You can play with sparkles on any part of your face. I like to use them as an eye highlight over eye shadow. You can also use them on cheeks and lips, and even add them to your hair.
Finish with the perfect fairy costume. Now that your makeup looks great, finish with a great fairy costume. The nice thing about a fairy costume is that it can be as simple as a cute dress and wings. However you choose to costume, you can be sure that your beautiful fairy makeup will be the best part of your Halloween look.

No wearing off at the end of a long day. Imagine the time you will save in front of the mirror in applications and touch-ups. Permanent cosmetic procedures should be performed by a master certified cosmetic artist for best results.
This is a state of the art method of appling natural pigment to the dermal layer of the skin. This technique was medically developed and specifically designed for the complete safety of various procedures such as eye brows, eyeliner, lip liner, lip color, scar camouflage, areola restoration, vitiligo, freckles and stretch marks.



Permanent cosmetics can be applied to look natural for the enhancemnet of your own personal features. This allows you the freedom to achieve a more dramatic look with the application of regular makeup as your mood dictates.
This new technology of makeup will impress those of us who are so busy, as well as the client with oily skin, who's makeup had faded or rubbed off by the end of the day. Anyone allergic to the use of regular makeup will find this procedure extremely beneficial.
Both men and women will look their best at all times, no matter how busy their lifestyles have become. Prices range from $400 and up per procedure. Many upscale Spas, including Jon Tomas Salon & Spa in St. Louis,MO, have a permanent cosmetic artist on staff.
Experience the freedom of permanent cosmetics for yourself!


Makeup Review: E.L.F.'s Eyeshadow Duo

e.l.f Day To Night Smoky 4 Piece Eye Set! Includes 3 Eye-Shadow Duos And 1 Eye-Shadow Brush!

Ordering makeup online is risky. You don't know how the product feels on your skin, if you like the quality, and so much more. There are questions that you want answered before you throw money into a product. I try to answer your questions about makeup products before you purchase. I have personally purchased and tested each product I review to optimize your overall opinion.
Right now we are going to take a peek at e.l.f.'s eyeshadow duo. This is a product recently developed by e.l.f. During this review we are going to take a look at the colors, texture, and application life.

Colors:
I had purchased e.l.f.'s eyeshadow duo creams a couple months back and got each color. When I was buying these eyeshadow duo's I noticed the colors were identical to e.l.f.'s duo creams. There's a total of six duo's available for purchase right now: Butter pecan, olive, mocha swirl, blueberry, berry mix, and black licorice.
I was very pleased with the colors because they were highly pigmented. Unlike most other e.l.f. eyeshadow products, these shadows were actually rather matte. There was a little shimmer to each color, but not a lot. The eyeshadow duo's were actually a breath of fresh air.

Texture:
Texture is a very big part of an eyeshadow to me and it should be to you as well. Skin around the eye is very sensitive and can easily be damaged by the slightest pulling, poking, and prodding. You want to ensure the makeup you apply to the eye area is very gentle and mild.
E.l.f.'s shadow duo is a friendly bunch to the eye. The texture is very soft and subtle. I like to test shadow products on my ring finger before my eye, and, needless to say, I was very happy with the results on both my finger and eyelid.
This shadow did not crease and it did not flake. It is very easy to work with in the blending area. Since each shadow comes partnered with another shadow of the like, you can easily form a new look each day.

Application life:
I was very impressed with the application life of these shadows. Most shadows I purchase online turn out to be very cheap and an overall waste of money. Not with these.
I judged this shadow in three different ways: with concealer, with primer, and on bare skin. Each of these application processes are used on a daily basis.
·        On bare skin - I got approx. four hours of full application life from this duo. There was a little fading on the lighter shadows during this time, but not too much.
·        On concealer - I applied a concealer before application and it only caused creasing, so I would not recommend doing that.
·        On primer - I put the primer on before the shadow and got a lot better results. I got approx. five hours of full wear.

All-in-all, it's a good shadow for the price and I would recommend adding it to your makeup collection.

How to Pull Off the No Makeup Look Successfully


Ever wanted to try to walk out in public without wearing any makeup and not feel embarrassed or even almost naked at the same time? Don't be shy anymore, here are a few tips to get you started in the right direction of letting your face be "au naturale".

First of all make sure your face is cleansed thoroughly. Any dirty residue can make your facial skin appear dull or blotchy. I would recommend using the facial bar soap by Clinique that fits your skin type to make sure your skin is squeaky clean without drying it out. Afterwards follow up with a toner and moisturizer (I would also recommend using ones by Clinique as well). If you have fairer skin or are going to be outside for a longer period of time, make sure you use a moisturizer that has a good amount of SPF for protection against the sun's damaging effects, especially on your bare skin.

Do you have dark circles on your eyes or have puffy eyes? Soothe them with a de-puff eye gel such as the all natural Yes To Cucumbers brand. It goes on clear and leaves no trace of residue behind and does an excellent job of calming down the eye area. Make sure you get enough sleep the night before to prevent this from happening in the first place.

            Make sure everything is neat about your face, especially your eyebrows. Keep your eyebrows tame with a tweezer, but try to do this the night before to avoid red, irritated skin on your upper eye area.

            You hair plays a major part in giving you that fresh look. Make sure hair is not messy and all over the place or else it will contribute to a disarrayed, "I don't really care about my looks" appearance. A simple neat ponytail or your hair combed neatly will simply do the trick.

            Do you have acne prone skin and simply cannot risk walking out showing off your blemishes for the whole wide world to see? Invest in a concealer specially formulated with salicylic acid that matches the exact skin tone of your skin and lightly dab it on to your blemishes, but don't over do it or else it will be obvious that you something foreign on your face. You can follow up with a tinted SPF moisturizer to make sure your skin tone looks even. Do you have sparse eyelashes and don't want to appear tired? Brighten them by using clear mascara on your lashes to still achieve the natural look.


Makeup Additives - Do You Know What You're Putting on Your Face?


In today's society many women apply makeup every morning before they leave the house but how many people really know what they're putting on their face?

Do you know what each additive does in your cosmetics? These are six additives found in makeup that you may not know their purpose: benzethonium chloride, candelilla wax, cetyl alcohol, para aminobenzoic acid, propylene glycol, and triethanolamine.

When you buy makeup you should always check the label to make sure that there is some sort of preserving agent that will prevent germs from growing. One of the most common preservatives and antiseptic compounds found in makeup is benzethonium chloride.

Candelilla wax is found in lipstick and lip balms and is what allows them to harden. Candelilla wax is derived from the leaves and stems of the candelilla shrub found in the southwestern states and northern Mexico.

The majority of additives that are used in makeup are found in foundation. Cetyl alcohol is an emollient, meaning it is used in makeup to soften and smooth the skin to which it is applied. This is used in foundations to create a soft look on the face.

Para aminobenzoic acid which is sometimes abbreviated to PABA used to be commonly found in foundations that offer sunscreen protection from UV rays. But according to the National Institute of Health: National Library of Medicine (2007), this compound isn't commonly used anymore since it has been found to increase the risk of skin cancer in certain people whose bodies are not able to repair cellular defects caused by this acid.

Another additive found in many foundations is propylene glycol which helps prevent your skin from drying out when applying makeup by retaining it's own moisture. This organic compound is also commonly used in body and facial moisturizers, not just makeup.

Triethanolamine stearate is an emulsifying agent used in foundations and other cosmetics to combine oil and water for a smooth appearance. This organic chemical compound can also be used as a pH balancer and is found in other beauty products, besides makeup, it is found in lotions, shaving foam, and shampoos.


These six additives are only some of those which you will find in the makeup you put on your face everyday and now you can feel a little more confident about what you're using. If your makeup has other additives in the ingredients, don't worry, cosmetic manufacturers use different products but FDA regulations prohibit the use of additives which may be dangerous in US produced makeup.
