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…..

Farewell Mint…….

2 Sep

I love pastels and adore wearing light and fun colors all Spring and Summer long.  This past Spring/Summer was no different I wore pastels like crazy but I wore the hell out of MINT!!!!!!! I LOVE ALL THINGS MINT!  I really had a love affair with the robin’s egg hue!  Now that Summer is coming to an end…..I am sad to say goodbye to my beloved mint pieces as I move on and embrace my “darker” side for Fall/Winter.  I’m not saying I’ll be totally mintless…..there are days where I will wear it I’m sure……….but I won’t be wearing mint whenever possible like I have for the last 6 months.

Mint…..I will always love you and perhaps next Spring we will pick up where we left off.

Find your Perfect Purple

18 Apr

Of all the colors in the rainbow, besides neutrals I think purple is the most wearable shade when it comes to eyeshadow. It’s not as girly as pink yet not as risky as blue. I have brown eyes and wear all eyeshadow colors but I love the way purple looks most. From lavender to lilac and plum to eggplant, purple shades flatter all eye colors.  You can go for a single shade look or smoke it out, the possibilities are endless! I really don’t believe in makeup rules but I know there are definitely pairings that look better than others. Here are some complimentary color combinations depending on your eyes.

Brown eyes: look beautiful with warmer purples and accented with bronzes and golds.

Blue eyes: look so pretty with cooler shades of purple and accented with greys.

Green eyes: Green eyes look absolutely amazing with ANY shade of purple and especially with eggplant and plum tones. Green eyes and purple shadows are a pair made in heaven. The color combination really POPS!

Remember these are combinations that work for sure, but any shade of purple may  look gorgeous on you no matter what your eye color, so TRY shadows on! you never know until you do.

Here are some pictures of purples on many different eye colors and shapes; different skin tones as well.
