The Beautyblender’s elliptical shape is designed to match the contours of your face and its lack of edges eliminates streaks allowing for perfect makeup application every time. The Beautyblender is non-allergenic, latex free & fragrance free. To use you simply, drench Beautyblender with water and squeeze out excess and dry to dampened state with clean towel. Use pointed end to blend under eye concealer and foundation around the nose. The rounded end is used to stiple on foundation – liquid, cream or powder, blush or bronzer.

SkinStore.com now has the Beautyblender in three colors, orignal (pink), pure (white) & the newest addition pro (black). So, if you are still using your fingers to apply your make up its time to convert over to the most modernized way to do your make up and try the Beautyblender.
It’s that lovely time of year… Valentine’s Day. And that means pink & red everywhere!
It is said that the color Pink can affect us both mentally and physically. The color has been associated with feelings of passion, happiness, and friendliness. Physically, brighter pinks can stimulate energy and encourage confidence. Personally when I think of pink, I think of fun, flirty, happy, and strong willed girly girls. We see the color around the world… in nature, fashion, and in many beauty products. Instead of looking at flowers or wearing your favorite pink scarf, why don’t you explore your options and opt for a new daring pink lipstick! Maybe even use skin care products that incorporate the inspirational pink color in them. Here are some of our favorite pink products:
Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die For Pink Bombshell Lip Balm: Protect and maintain your lips with this invigorating daily lip conditioner. Lips to Die for Pink Bombshell Lip Balm delivers a natural, rosy glow and leaves lips soft, supple, sexy and kissable.

SpaRitual Infinity Loving Kit: This set allows you to try an affectionate crème or a heartfelt shimmer, or you can use both to create your own nail looks. Brighten your smile and add maximum moisture to your lips with vegan, gluten-free mini lip gloss included.

So when you are ready to make your next beauty move, remember to think PINK! What are your favorite pink products?!
Do you love makeup, but can’t find the right one? Do they break out your skin or irritate it? Are you tired of your makeup appearing powdery or dull on your skin?
Well I have got exciting news for you! Recently we had product training with Pur Minerals and my sensitive, reactive skin put their products to the test! To my surprise, after continuously wearing the product for a couple weeks, I’m in love! I have finally found a foundation that helped clear my skin and looked natural. Here are my top reasons why you’ll love it too!
Pur Minerals is vegan friendly and on their way to being organic approved. The complexion, skincare, & lip products are Gluten free. They use a formulation of DermaWhite & Ceratin complex containing purified, nonirritating retinol and moisturizing Ceramides. That means that while you use this daily you can help correct or prevent skin concerns, plump or firm the skin, and help smooth fine lines or wrinkles all while balancing your skin tone. The foundation won’t dry your skin, is oil free, and uses a talc-free formulation. While you can boost the healthy results with use of their skincare, it will also work in conjunction with any other skincare you’re already using.
Seems like the perfect skin care plan right! I won’t bore you with in depth formulation talk, but Pur Minerals products don’t get the recognition they deserve! If you feel like you’re in a makeup rut or even looking to try something new, give them a try. I give them a 10 star rating and a high five! *wink

Foundation that acts like a treatment. It gently exfoliates, diminishes wrinkles, won’t clog pores, and soothes skin, all while moisturizing. And it’s great for all skin types.
You’ll love the glow you get using this foundation. Start your layering right with
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener. Both of these minimize the appearance of pores, will give you a smooth finish and are incredibly anti-aging. They don’t call it “The Skin Care Make-Up” for nothin’!

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.
Mascara that stays on until you take it off? Nope, not a dream! It’s blinc. This innovative original is unlike traditional mascara. It actually forms tiny “tubes” around each eyelash that won’t smudge or run – ever! It truly is sweat and cry-proof.
This miracle mascara volumizes and lengthens lashes without clumping. It’s available in black, dark brown, medium brown, dark green, purple and blue. It removes without make-up remover. Just add warm water and gentle pressure, the tubes will release in your hand.
You’ll have natural-looking thick lashes that last.
When it comes to perfect colors and makeup, it’s hard to find the perfect mix. Between a girl’s bronzed face and the rest of her amazing features, finding the right balance can be a challenge.

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 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!
