No Budge Back to School MakeUp

Whether you’re a mom of four, a busy college student, or a hard-working principal of your local middle school, back to school means back to being busy.  Often being gone from your dorm room, house or apartment for an entire day, being in the swing of the school year necessitates makeup that you can apply in the morning and count on it to last- all day long.  Here are our top three products that we consider back-to-school essentials for makeup that lasts:

Bella Il Fiore Face Palette Blinc Kiss Me Mascara Model in a Bottle Setting Spray

1.  Bella’s Face Palettes:  Artfully designed to match any complexion beautifully, Bella Il Fiore’s Face Palettes provide an easy-on-the-go makeup solution packed into one travel ready case.  Small enough to fit in a backpack, purse or even your pocket, the Bella Face Palettes expertly combine color, saving you time, and fitting easily on your person for touch ups.

2.  Blinc (Kiss Me) Mascara:  Blinc’s Mascara is “totally tubular,” featuring not a plastered, impossible to get off stick mascara, but an expertly designed tubing formula that literally creates a tube around your lashes.  The mascara won’t even budge throughout your day, even with sweat, itchy eyes or P.E., but when combined with a little warm water at night, the tubes will slip off almost effortlessly.  We LOVE it.

3.  Last but not least, Model in a Bottle Setting Spray is like hairspray for perfect makeup.  Apply any makeup, just how you like it, and spray just a couple of bursts of Model in a Bottle over the top to set in your cosmetic creation for the entire day, while absorbing oil and keeping away unwanted shine.  Available in both an original and sensitive skin formula, don’t worry about irritation.  This weightless, invisible spray will keep the attention where it belongs- on you!

Late to Class Make-Up 101: Easy Everyday Make-Up

Late to Class Make-Up 101: Easy Everyday Make-Up Routines

Back to school means “back to being busy” for many of us.  Parents, students, teachers and co-workers all know that when Fall comes in, our free time seems to fly out the window.  When your beauty routine is running under a seriously crunched schedule, try this super easy and super quick everyday make-up routine to look great in 5 minutes or less!

1.  Start with a pigment matching tinted moisturizer.  Our favorite is Urban Apothecary’s Supernatural Mineral Sheer Tint, but many makeup lines carry products such as this.  A moisturizer and translucent foundation all in one, tinted moisturizer covers imperfections without a need for concealer, and looks totally natural, giving your skin the perfect everyday glow.  Apply like moisturizer- no applicators or sponges needed!

2.  Follow with a bronzing powder for just a little bit of natural color on your cheeks.  Tigi’s Glamma Bronzer is great, because each compact includes two shades of bronzer, which can be mixed or used separately, depending on your skin tone during different seasons, or your changing style.  Simply brush on your cheek bones for just a touch of color on your way out the door.

3.  Apply mascara.  Don’t skip the mascara!  Any on the go lady will tell you that nothing makes a woman look more polished than wearing a little bit of eye makeup.  Blinc’s tube-style mascara applies easily- in one coat!- and won’t smudge or budge all day long, but washes off easily at night or in the shower.  It simply slides off your lashes- just like tubes! Apply more heavily at the base, and alleviate the need for an eyeliner.  Quick as can be!

4.  Slap on some moisturizing lip balm.  Especially for everyday sorts of things, the natural color of your lips is perfect.  Enhanzing it with a little moisture in the morning sets off the natural color of your lips flawlessly.  We suggest Principessa’s Bacio Me Lip Balm in a tube, for easy application and the perfect ultra-moisturizing formula.
