Conceal & Combat Blemishes

Published on by

On top of our daily stresses, women have crazy hormones which contribute to breakouts. Instead of just crossing your fingers and hoping for a quick fix, do something beneficial for your face!

Quickly hide your imperfections and zap the pesky bacteria that causes your skin to become irritated. There are a couple of great products that not only cover up, but will treat the area as well.  Within some of these products you may find Green Tea leaf Extract which has anti-inflammatory benefits or Willow Bark Extract for anti-microbial benefits. Another ingredient you may see is Bisbolol which is used to help soothe your skin. Two great products to take a look at are the Acne Treatment Concealer by Murad and the Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer by Jane Iredale.  The best part is that both of these are so easy to toss into your purse for on-the-go use! Go grab one and arm yourself against blemishes.

Spring Must Haves

Published on by

The sun is shining and flowers are in bloom! Here are a few of our spring season favorites.

RapidLash: Bambi won’t be the only big doe eyed beauty this season! Rapidlash contains a potent polypeptide complex, proteins, vitamins, and moisturizers to stimulate and condition lashes. Your lashes will be longer, stronger, and more voluminous with continued use. FYI you can also apply to sparse eyebrows to help fill in stubborn hairs. Who knows, mascara may be a thing of the past?!

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer Multi-Usage Dry Oil Splash is an absolute must have for the spring and summer months! Instantly add a bit of color and luminosity to the body and even hair! Your skin is left wonderfully soft and dewy.

Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish: Warm spring days can wreak havoc on your makeup. But have no fear; Skindinavia Makeup Finish can save you from a major makeup meltdown! This innovative spray acts as a makeup primer, chilling the surface and hydrating your skin for all day perfection. Pore size is reduced, fewer touch ups are needed throughout the day, fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. This spray also helps for your makeup to go longer- use up to 50% less makeup than before.

bareMinerals Blush – Laughter: An easy way to brighten any look is to add a touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks. The bronzer trend has left many women in need of a bit of rouge! While bronzer adds depth and deepens skin color, blush is used as a pop of color to liven up your complexion.  Blush is one of the simplest ways to achieve a more youthful glow.


Bright Colors: This Spring’s Beauty Trend

Published on by

Bright colors are all over the runway this season and adding a pop of color to your makeup routine is one Spring beauty trend you don’t want to miss out on. You can add a little color to your eyes, lips, or cheeks that may turn out to be your best accessory this season!

Bright Spring colors are always a must, but taking it a step further and adding some shine and color to your lips, will be unforgettable. Tangerine is one of this season’s must wear colors. We like the Jane Iredale PureGloss in Apricot Fizz to brighten up your lips and add a little shimmer and shine. The Jane Iredale PureGlosse’s will add shine, soothe and protect the lips, and let’s not forget they will add amazing color! They contain extracts of green tea, grape seed, and pomegranate to condition and protect those luscious lips.

If you are looking for a more muted tangerine color for the eyes, we suggest the Jane Iredale PurePressed Triple Eye Shadow in Pecan Chocolate. You can blend the colors together to create a custom fun look or apply the brighter color all over the lid, and you’ll be ready for any Spring event.

For cheeks this season we love the Full Bloom Cheek and Lip Color by Too Faced in Prim and Poppy. This pigment rich creamy warm coral blush will blend in and make you stand out all in one application. It is long wearing, just perfect for tiring work days or exciting weekends.

Whatever the trend is, it’s important to experiment with new makeup colors and techniques to create a custom look that’s all your own!


Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner

Published on by

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.


Makeup Kits for New Years

Published on by

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.

Five Quick Beauty Tips – All Day Makeup

Published on by

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!

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Use primer before applying your foundation and your makeup will look better and stay much longer
  5. 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
