GOLD DUST WOMAN


  
  

Gold guided lids are the go-to look for winter nights out. Go for a super pigmented shadow and smoke it out for a dramatic, sexy look.  For less drama or wearing it during the day, a gold eyeliner lined along the bottom of the eye is perfect.

BEAUTY FROM THE SEA: OSEA MALIBU

oOSEA Malibu is an organic and vegan skincare line that gets its ingredients from the sea. Nutrient rich seaweed from the pristine waters of Patagonia and the purest organic botanical ingredients combine to create results that you can sea for a lifetime.  The entire line is absolutely luxurious.  Your skin just drinks up the nutrients. If we had to pick a favorite product form the line it would be the Atmosphere Protection Cream.  They have great gift sets available for the holiday!

SIMPLE MAKEUP: FOUNDATION STICKS

2e97e30f5c1e6dd72e46cd31bab4eee4The thing I love most about makeup sticks is the simplicity and convenience.  It’s not messy so being able to throw it in your purse and not worry about it leaking everywhere.  I like a stick with a creamy consistency so I can blend it with my fingers.

PUCKER UP

Nothing is less sexy than dry, chapped lips.  Dry lips are are a sign of dehydration so drinking adequate amounts of water through the day is essential.  The skin on your lips is delicate and thin, and as the weather gets colder you need to give your pout some extra love to keep them hydrated and smooth.

OUR FAVORITE EYE SHADOW PALETTES

A great eye palette not only makes your beauty routine more efficient, but it really makes your makeup bag a lot less cluttered, especially when traveling.  We like a palette with a mix of shimmery and matte tones that allow you to play up for night, or keep it neutral for day.  Having the option of colors that you already know look good together also lets you play with and experiment with combining different shades.

CURRENTLY LOVING: WINKY LUX

Screen Shot 2015-10-20 at 12.08.47 AMAnyone that’s as makeup obsessed as we are knows that just the packaging of a product is sometimes enough to make you want to try it.  That was the case with the Winky Lux Lip Velour.   After visiting their NYC headquarters we fell in love with the line.  The pill inspired case is totally reminiscent of something Damien Hirst would appreciate. This ultra-long wearing matte lipstick comes in 14 colors, our favs being Meow a great 90’s brown nude thats great for Fall. and Poppy because it would work on any skin tone. City is great for winter color. Scandal is definitely tricky to wear but we’re a little obsessed.  Click here to shop Winky Lux products.

PEEL-OFF MASKS

The very first beauty face mask I ever tried was a little peel-off cucumber mask that my mom got me from the drugstore.  To this day they are still one of my favorite beauty treatments to do at home.  These are a few that I’ve tried and love.

SALE SATURDAY: BEAUTY BARGINS

aaaa

It’s the our last Sale Saturday of August!  The buzz this week is beauty.  We’re sending off the season by pampering, primping and beautifying ourselves with these marked-down essentials, like the St. Tropez self-tan kit from Sephora for half off!

WE LOVE CREAM BLUSH!

Cream blushes are perfect for creating a natural, dewy glow in a way that powder blushes can’t.    The extra pigment in a cream blush requires a little bit more blending, but it’s the perfect product  to use during summer because it stays on for a longer period of time.  One of our favorite things to do is use the same color on our lips.  It’s perfect for traveling because the less space you can take up with product, the better, and if you drop it, it won’t crumble!
