In all seasons we want that warm radiant glow for our skin. You know that dewy sun kissed look that all the celebs seem to have. Most of us don’t have the time or the money for a professional sunless tan application or a stylist, so we resort to buying over the counter products. They usually end up making us look orange, go on uneven and they smell horrible! It’s hard to find a good smelling, natural, and effective self-tanner for the face and body. Jane Iredale’s Tantasia self tanner could be your solution.
Jane Iredale is known in the cosmetic industry and dermatology field for making pure and natural skincare makeup that is mineral based and glides on the skin. It’s great for all ages and skin types, and is recommended by Dermatologists for post procedure care and coverage. The tantasia is a moisturizing, and natural bronzer that can be used on the face and body. It has a streak-free formula with no harsh ingredients or chemical smell; only a fresh citrus fragrance will be left behind. The best thing is you can get a glowing tan without even being out in the sun.
The formula is a gradual tan so it goes on natural looking and compliments your skin tone. It builds a flawless customized tan, so within 3 days you will have glowing radiant skin that even celebrities will be jealous of! The formula will work for all skin types because it has been sensitivity tested for use on the face and body. To apply you can use the Jane Iredale Blending Brush for a more even application; please allow 15-20 of drying time before applying other skincare products or getting dressed.

Just a couple of my favorites ones include the skyn ICELAND Glacial Cleansing Cloths , ATOPALM Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes (when I haven’t used eye makeup), and the Korres Milk Proteins Cleansing Wipes as they don’t require water or rinse off after use.

Once again we are at the dawn of another new year. With the holidays behind us and friends and family still on our minds, New Year’s Eve provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon years past and to ponder with excitement the New Year ahead.
It’s with this excitement and anticipation that we begin to think about our New Year’s Eve makeup and attire. There are so many makeup options to choose from! Smoky eye, natural eye, red lips, natural lips, whatever your makeup of choice SkinStore has you covered. Here are some of our favorite makeup kits that provide endless beauty options for you.
For longer lasting and true color wear, we always suggest that you begin with shadow primer and a foundation primer. Primers will give you a beautiful smooth canvas that will ultimately give you flawless looking skin once your makeup application is complete.
Starting with the eyes, one of the most popular looks that remains a staple for an evening party look is the smoky eye, The Too Faced Smokey Eye Collection gives you a color palette for three smoky eye looks, Day, Classic and Fashion. The kit includes 9 colors and three “how to” application cards so that anyone can achieve the look they desire.
Moving on to all over beauty, the Laura Geller Baked and Beautiful Kit gives you all the basic’s from a primer, to bronzer, blush, eye makeup and the fantastic Dream Creams Lip Palette. The color options in the kit provide you with everything you need to go from the office to the afterhours New Year’s Eve party with ease.
If you need a cute but practical travel ready kit, the Too Faced Fierce and Flawless Value Set is perfect! It comes with a leopard print wristlet, blush, eye shadow, mascara, and primer, that is pretty much everything you need for an evening out or an overnight New Year’s Eve destination.
For a more natural look that can easily go from day to night the Philosophy Supernatural Play Time to Party Time set comes with everything you need for flawless radiant looking skin. The colors in this palette are highly pigmented for true color that stays put.

I know we talk about Clarisonic and the Baby Quasar all the time but did you know that SkinStore also carries beauty basics like makeup brushes? Yes, that’s right, we can actually be your one stop beauty and skin care shopping place because we literally have everything beauty at SkinStore. Let’s check out a few beauty tool must haves we carry…ahem, besides the fabulous mega tools like the beloved Clarisonic!
Everyone who wears makeup has their “go to” set of applicators that you cannot live without. Among these I always find a combination of a Kabuki, spooly, foundation tool, liner, smudger, blender, fan, multiple shadow applicators, and some form of contour brush or brushes AND guess what, we have them all and many more!
Foundation applicators are abundant at SkinStore. From pressed powder, loose power, to liquid we have applicators to suit you. To list just a few (psst, if you want to check them out yourself, type “brushes” in our search tool bar on the home page at SkinStore) :
Kabuki Brushes: The Kabuki is typically a full or oversized dome shaped brush that has many uses but is generally used for applying loose powder, bronzers, or in some cases blending. We have a few of these that we offer like the bareMinerals Full Coverage Kabuki Brush, Laura Geller Retractable Kabuki Brush, and Amazing Kabuki Brush.
Foundation Brushes: The foundation brush is typically a longer handled slightly larger brush with an application area about the size of the tip of your thumb for liquid foundation application and much larger and fuller for powder mineral application. We carry both types like the Jane Iredale Foundation Brush and the Illuminare Foundation Brush for liquid foundations. For powder we have the bareMinerals Flawless Application Face Brush and the Too Faced Powder Pouf Brush among others.
The applicators that we carry are endless! The Jane Iredale Blending Brush is excellent for both powder and cream makeup application of all sorts as is the bareMinerals Blending Brush which says its for use on the eye but I use it when I need wider detail like when I’m creating a cheek bone. Speaking of cheek bones, no makeup kit is complete without the fan brush and Jane Iredale has a fantastic one that we carry!
For a concealer brush, check out Amazing Cosmetics or Jane Iredale. For a super fine line for eyes or brows the Angle Brush by JI is amazing as is the Stila #4 Precision Eyeliner! Need a smudger? I like the Eyeliner Brow Brush by Jane Iredale because you get two tools in one; there is a liner and a smudger. We’ve got you covered on shadow brushes too! We even have setting sprays and makeup removers!
As you can see, SkinStore.com offers everything you need for your beauty and skin care regimen, we are not just a skin store, we are much more!

All of us have beauty tips that we’ve picked up along the way that have helped us out in a pinch or have provided beauty relief in a new or previously undiscovered way. Extending makeup wear is a popular subject as most of us are dashing from place to place with little time to fuss with our makeup all day. Look pretty as a plum all day long with these quick tips!
- If you suffer from runny eye makeup change to waterproof liquid liner for extended stay put power and all day wear with no re-application.
- For all day wear lashes that can last through the office, to the gym and then out to dinner waterproof mascara is your best friend. It will stay put all day and doesn’t require touch up.
- Lip stain is perfect for extended wear. Unlike lipstick which is topical, lip stain will actually stain your lip with a light pigment that will last much longer than traditional lip gloss or lip stick. In a pinch, use your lip stain as blush that too will stay in place all day
- Use primer before applying your foundation and your makeup will look better and stay much longer
- And finally, if you have oily skin, don’t reapply makeup all day, blot it with oil absorbing blotting linen. In a pinch, tear off a piece of a ladies room seat cover and blot away

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.
