Drew Barrymore’s New(affordable) Makeup Line

26 Jan

Drew Barrymore is the latest celebrity to create her own makeup collection Flower which debuted this month exclusively at Wal- Mart.  Her over 180 piece collection includes eye, face, lip and nail products which are available at 1,500+ Wal-Mart locations. What is great about this collection is that it’s cruelty free(not tested on animals) and the price point is beyond amazing- nothing is over $15!  It is luxury products at mass market prices.  According to the press release the collection is “formulated with the same quality ingredients found in department store luxury brands, but sold for a fraction of the price”.

How did Barrymore produce such high quality products at such fair prices????  Well Barrymore and team chose to skip paid advertising and rely solely on blogs, social media, word of mouth and Barrymore’s popularity to do the “advertising”,which  frees up the usual 20-30% that would fund advertising.  That money is then able to then go into the formulation of great products.  The same formulas that high-end companies all over the world are using. Impressive to say the least!  I can’t wait to try it!

I really love the clear view shadow palettes which make it easy to find the color your looking for and the super cute packaging with rose gold detail!

The Two Must Have Colors For 2013!!!

22 Jan

What are the “it” colors for 2013?????  I can’t choose just one!  The two colors that I won’t be able to live without are Emerald and Lilac!!!! So many of my favorite fashion moments have included at least one of these colors , if not both!  Emerald has always been a go to color  in my wardrobe but I’m really making room for lilac this year and am very excited about it.  If you’re not big into color you can start by adding a shoe or clutch to your outfit or adding these colors into your makeup regimen. If you love color, go crazy with it-  The more the merrier!

Some colorful inspiration…..

Great Makeup Guides! (highlighting/contouring and eyes)

4 Dec

Here are some great steps to follow that can help you whether you are experienced or just starting to wear makeup!  I feel like the two hardest “makeup” techniques to master are highlighting & contouring and creating the perfect smokey eye.  Below I have chosen my favorite guides to achieve these looks.

As far as highlighting & contouring goes, Keep in mind all face shapes and bone structures are different so you don’t have to follow the illustrations exactly, they are just guides to help you. Don’t worry everything will be fine after you blend blend blend!
