I am not big on traditional lipstick. I feel like no matter what shade I chose at best I look like a little kid playing dress up and at worse the joker a la Jack Nicholson. I tend to lean towards glosses and balms for this reason, and when I saw this DIY Pink Lip […]
When you hear the term BB cream, I think the two most common responses are, “Can’t live without it!” or “Never heard of it!” Now that I’ve discovered it, my response is most definitely ”can’t live without it”! If your response is never heard of it, you’re missing out! I’m sure that when you hear about what […]
The holiday season is finally upon us and Christmas is in the air! Still pondering what to buy your better half, sister, or girlfriend this year? Luckily, retailers like Ulta have made Christmas shopping a lot easier for us. There are some really great holiday gift sets out that are too good to pass up and would […]
Pimples, we all get them. No matter how old I get, it seems I always get those one or two annoying red dots on my face at the worst possible time. My first instinct is to pick and squeeze the nefarious zit until it’s gone (even though it is the worst thing to do!) and […]
There are few cosmetics companies out there that have a cult following like Urban Decay. Each time they come out with a new eyeshadow palette, the beauty community goes crazy! And it’s no wonder really, with shadows as rich as theirs that they have rightfully gained their reputation. The latest to come out of the […]
I tend to shy away from dark lipsticks (anything with more color than a pale pink or nude is dark in my book) because I hate the “feathered” look I always wind up with around the edges of my lips. I have never been cosmetic savvy enough to figure out how to prevent it, so […]
I will admit, I have an addiction. Every morning when I wake up to my iPhone ringing… The first thing I do after I turn off the alarm is hit the Cupcakes and Cashmere app and read Emily Schuman’s latest blog entry. I have been doing this since I was introduced to her blog over […]
Who can resist an ACTIVE MOISTURE BOOST? When I bought this product from Chanel Hydramax Active Serum last January, I bought it because it smelled nice and it was a good product to use while traveling to keep your face and neck hydrated on those long plane rides that always dry you out. Needless to […]
A problem I used to have with makeup was getting it stay on for more than a few hours. It never lasted a whole work day, especially when the warmer came around. With summer fast approaching, I did some research to see what you can do to help your makeup stay on longer.
Like most girls, I use makeup everyday; if not twice, depending on the day. This, in turn, leads me to always using my makeup brushes! When you think about how often and where those brushes go, I feel I should be cleaning them as often as I wash my face, but I feel I can speak for most people when I say, I do not clean them anywhere near as often as I clean my room!
When it comes to makeup, I’ve never been one to be over the top with it. Give me a little foundation, some gloss and maybe mascara and I’m good to go. OK, so, I’ve been eying this primer for months now and I finally caved and bought it.
