Recently I’ve seen many runway shows featuring red lips, bold eyes, and bold brows, this takes me back to the 1980’s when Robert Palmer was singing Addicted to Love, or Simply Irresistible with those uber-perfect 1980’s models that all looked alike. It’s amazing how history repeats itself, even from a makeup trend perspective! So here we are on the dawn of 2012 and the brows are back!
While reading a recent beauty blog I found some truly appealing, natural, and beautiful brow looks that are perfect for everyday wear. Bushy, messy, dark, and otherwise more natural looking brows are a nice change from years past when thin was in. For those still able to grow their brows, this trend may be a nice change. For those of us who have to pencil our brows in, well, let’s get to it!
One recommendation to keep your messy brows in place is the use of a great brow gel. For me, it doesn’t matter how I brush my brows, they always end up in the perfectly thin little line that they are and I just can’t get them to stay messy UNLESS I whip out my trusty brow gel, it’s the Billon Dollar Brows Brow Gel and this stuff works. The description says “why settle for messy brows?” but you know, if you have unruly brows that want to be compliant and non-messy, it works for that too!
To get bushy brows that are all the rage I like to start with the Billon Dollar Brows Angled Tip Spooly Brush to brush my brows out to give a thicker appearance, since my brows don’t grow well growing them out is simply not an option so faking it is a great alternative. After brushing my brows out, I gently apply the brow gel and let dry. Afterward, if you want a thicker brow look you can carefully apply a medium brown eye shadow directly over the brow gel to “fill in” and empty spots or simply to add thickness to your brows. Touch up as needed to achieve your desired look.
Be a brave beauty! Try a new look this season and sport yourself a bold brow.

Lipstick, lip color, lip stain, lip shine, lip gloss, whatever you call it, most of us have one or five in our purse or beauty cabinet. I thought it would be fun to search for our most popular lipsticks on SkinStore.com based on customers rating. Below are the top 5 picks. In no particular order here they are!
Too Faced Lip Of Luxury Lipstick – Living in Sin is a 5 star rated product that is a paraben free, long lasting shea butter based lip pigment that won’t dry out your pucker. So what does our brand loyalist geritg and product junkie Josa say?
“Just an awesome lipstick. Wonderful for daytime wear. I will reorder it often.” – geritg
“I have dry skin and I’ve tried EVERYTHING (believe me) and I have to say Too Faced lipsticks are the best in the world. They do not get dry and flaky like SO many others. They’re very emollient heavy and have a pearly undertone to them so they reflect light and make lips appear plump. Love it!!!!” Josa.
I think they are hooked!
Korres Lip Butter – Pomegranate is a little pot of buttery gold for our next product junkie and top 100 contributor Violetsblu who says “Ooo, so buttery! Feels soothing on my lips. I love coral colors, but they usually look too bright and clownish w/ my light cool complexion. This pomegranate color is sheer, so it looks nice on me. The color isn’t long lasting, but the moisturizing and shine does last for a bit. I’m going to check out the other colors for sure. I did try this as a blush and it did put a pretty tint on my cheeks, so this can be a multitasker for your makeup bag.”
I love it when products get a multi-tasker nod from our product junkies!
Fusion Beauty LipFusion Micro Injected Collagen Color Shine Bloom is not only a beautiful lip color, it’s a lip plumper that is a fantastic moisturizing treatment. #1 Contributor Katie88 says “I love these glosses and Bloom is no exception. The rosy color is gorgeous and the blue undertones keep my smile looking white! On days when I drink espresso, I wear Bloom. I love how plump and glossy my lips look!” and Lindy says “I love this product. It really does work and it surprised me too because I have tried so many different lip boosters. I liked it so much I bought some for my sister and best friend to try.”
Everyone needs a sister or best friend like Lindy, she gives gifts!
Too Faced Love Lisa SPF Lip Balm is the balm! This little beauty is packed with orange essential oils, shea butter, almond oil, and is paraben free PLUS it contains UVA/UVB SPF 15. And the packaging is adorable WOW! Again Kaite88 our #1 contributor says “I love this lip balm. When I put it on, my lips feel instantaneously moisturized and the product is quite creamy. One aspect that I love is that the product is supposed to smell like oranges and I think taste like them too, but when I put it on, it smells like vanilla and tastes like it too! The cause is great, and I can always find it in my purse because of the cute charm. Thanks Too Faced!”
I’d like to give a big “Thank YOU!” to all our customers and fans that give us such wonderful reviews! And a special thank you to Katie88 our #1 contributor, visit us again soon Katie!

Once again an old nail trend has popped up in renewed discussion and this is one trend that you either “love it” or “hate it”. Flared nails are being spotted in all different colors and in varying degrees of flare. This trend is an acquired taste that many celebs are sporting all over town and even more beauty buffs adore!
As I was reading a popular beauty blog about this trend I got to thinking, how would I be able to work with these nails? What would it be like to use my smart phone is I were sporting that duck bill or duck feet shape nail? Is it for me? Well, the jury is still out for me personally, but one thing is for sure, I will never stop using nail polish as one of my most prized accessories!
For those of you that don’t know, we carry over a hundred nail polish colors at SkinStore! butter LONDON is all the rage with its fun and true colors. And SpaRitual has a cult following for its eco-friendly products and packaging as well as its focus on vegan ingredients.
My top picks? Right now I am loving The Giving Tree and Can You Dig It by SpaRitual because most of my winter clothing tends to be natural colors that are more muted. I also love, love, love Yummy Mummy and Lady Muck by butter LONDON when I am wearing more black or gray colors.

Cleaning your makeup brushes is a chore. If you have a lot of brushes (like, yours truly) it can be pretty time consuming. It can also take up a fair amount of bathroom counter space as well. None the less, it must be done. Makeup brushes can hold bacteria that can lead to acne breakouts, dermatitis, or even infection. I know you are asking yourself “How often should you wash them?” Well, you should wash the brushes you use to apply powder, blush or bronzer once a week and wash the brushes used on the eyes and lips after every other use. I love to clean mine with a clarifying shampoo. It gets the “gunk” out. After shampooing them you want to lay them flat on a clean dry towel to air dry. Once the brushes are dry, they feel silky and are clean as a whistle. You will even notice a difference in how easily the products just glide on.

It’s tough having oily skin… a shiny midday forehead doesn’t scream “fresh & polished”. To make foundation and powder last longer and go farther I always invest in a good primer, but in my opinion the most important step in a makeup regimen is the setting spray. You don’t have to have oily skin to use a setting spray to make your makeup last. If your skin is dry you probably know how uncomfortable that tight, powdery face is… and it surely doesn’t look any better than it feels. A spritz of setting spray allows for your skin to look beautifully radiant and smooth while allowing for your makeup to last and last without touchups, no matter your skin type!
Our favorite and best-selling makeup setting spray line is Skindinavia. It’s a tired and true celebrity and makeup artist favorite. In fact, Scandinavia is used backstage at huge theatrical productions, and it’s always a favorite at fashion week across the world.
Recently Skindinavia updated their packaging to sleek black bottles, and the best part is that you’re now getting MORE for LESS! At $39 a pop these 8 ounce bottles are a steal. Oily skinned gals (and many guys, too) really love the No More Shine Makeup Finish, it’s great as a midday spritz that allows makeup to adhere better to the skin, and it works wonderfully for those on TV and on the stage. The Skindinavia 10 Years Yonger Makeup Finish is amazing for those of us concerned with lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and scars. Because this spritz cools the skin upon application it rapidly sets powder and foundation in a smooth layer, rather than allowing the skin’s heat to push the product into crevices.
A special occasion calls for very special makeup, that’s why the Skindinavia Bridal Makeup Finish is our go-to for exceptional events. This color dispersing mist helps to keep blended coverage of foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer through perspiration and tears! Great for wedding photography and always a prom and homecoming must!

Do you have a social occasion to attend right after you clock out at work? No problem! Here are a few tips to take your daytime makeup look from the office hours to cocktail hour.
Dust on Jane Iredale Moonglow Golden Bronzer for a “Golden Goddess” look. This is an all over bronzer, made with 24-Karat gold flakes will liven up your complexion and create a flattering, natural glow.
Punch up the color in your cheeks with Stila Custom Color Blush. This amazing one-shade-fits-all powder blush compliments every skin tone.
Last year the main fall nail color trend was all different shades of purple. This years trendy fall nail colors are all about the rich colors and animal prints. Your nails are an extension of your style so weather you are feeling wild with animal prints or mild with muted tones, here at SkinStore we believe it’s important to make the look yours.
Perfect pedicure nail colors are muted, bright, or a little bit of shimmer and sparkle depending on your style and the season. We like butter LONDON’s selection of stylish and sophisticated polishes for every nail trend and mood. “Branwen’s Feather” is our Skinstore staff pedicure pick for fall. It’s a twist on the boring purple or jet black that will add a little mystery and shine that’s perfect for fall. We also like “La Moss”, this is a deep red wine color that will look great on fingers or toes for a chic and stylish look, a la supermodel Kate Moss.
For our trendy fall nail color manicure we like “Salt of the Earth” from SpaRitual. This is a bright but earthy copper color that goes great with fall colors like leaves on a tree. SpaRitual’s nail colors offer some elegance to your fingers but in a fun earthy way, without harsh chemicals or fillers. This would also be a festive duo for fingers and toes without being too overpowering.
The trick is finding a signature color then changing it just as the seasons do. A polish change is so much easier than a full wardrobe change, so try all different kinds of colors avaiailable at SkinStore to create a customized look that’s all your own. Nails are meant to be decorated and adored so go out there and show off your style with the latest trendy fall nail colors!
What is your favorite fall nail color or trend?
