Revlon: Glow on the Go

2016_08_22_lolomag3-95-edit

2016_08_22_lolomag3-35-edit Working from home has a lot of perks, but it also tends to create an even busier schedule as errands pile up and brand meetings and blogger lunches seem to fill up the days quite quickly. What has been a complete life saver for me is my Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick. It gives an instantly retouched look when you need a little mid-day refresher, and the magic is in a mistake-proof stick (party emoji!). It is one of those, lightweight pull-out-of-your-purse-easy-application type products. You can use the stick to highlight your cheekbones, cupids bow, eyebrow, the corner of your eye, and your collarbone. I feel like we all need more of these in our lives! Agreed?

Three loves of this product:

  1. The PhotoReady Insta-Fix Highlighting stick is mistake proof.
  2. It is easy to use!
  3. It enhances your best features even on the go!

I am so excited to hear what you think about these products! I would love to hear your comments below!

my makeup go-tos.

If I’m honest, I would rather spend an hour on my hair and five minutes on my makeup when I am getting ready. My sister has always been so talented at the art of blending eye shadows and making your face a masterpiece, so my focus remained on curling my hair with a straightener and round brushing my locks. I have started getting more into makeup the last few years, although I generally prefer more of a natural look. Buuuut…I still have my all time favorites (some I use every day; some are saved for special occasions).

Clockwise from the left:

‘Diorskin Airflash’ Spray Foundation: I wear this on night’s when I want my make-up to last. This makes your skin look like porcelain yet still looks natural. I use this buffer brush to blend it into my skin.

MAC Eye Brow Brush: Filling in eye brow gaps and naturally shaping them makes a world of difference.

MAC Paint/Brown Script Eyeshadow/Sketch Eyeshadow: Putting on this MAC paint will keep your eyeshadow in tact all night. These are my go-to shades that I wear to a dinner out with friends, a fun event, or a work meeting.

MAC Select Cover Up: On the sleepiest day, this will make you look fresh and bright. I use this brush to apply.

Chantecaille ‘Hi Definition’ Perfecting Powder: I always put this on after my everyday foundation using this brush, and it makes your look skin flawless.

MAC Powder Blush/MAC Bronzing Powder: Most of the time I use only the bronzer, but at times I use the blush on my cheek bones to add some color and dimension.

my every day favorites.

obsession of the day: sheer lip liner

In preparation for a beachy trip this past summer, I was on the hunt for a perfect pink lipstick (MAC Snob is amaze). This seemingly simple task turned out to be better than that burst of excitement when you find the right shade for the following reason: I was introduced to the ‘Contour Fill’ lip pencil.

 

In fact, it made my general packing list in the notes section on my iPhone. If it makes that list, it’s one of my can’t-live-withouts. The reasons why it is oh so good: #1 It’s Chantecaille, a brand that will never steer you wrong. #2 This lip liner works for anyone because it’s shadeless. #3 It actually works! (my favorite YSL lipstick doesn’t bleed anymore). Hooray!

Beauty Spotlight: Edward Bess

This month we set our focus on Edward Bess. Even though he is only 25 years old Edward has an impressive history in fashion, arts and of course beauty. The line started at Bergdorf’s with the lip wardrobe: a set containing ten lipsticks and five glosses. Since then the line has developed into a complete collection that is known as the best of the best. Sold only in New York and Beverly Hills it is now available exclusively at Forty Five Ten in Dallas.

Edward and I have a few things in common but one in particular serves as a major influence on our beauty vision; our mother. I will always have the memory of shopping with my mother all over the world in search of the perfect pink lipstick. I have never known her to wear any other color. From Egypt to Belgium that perfect pink was very hard to find. She’s a minimalist when it comes to makeup wearing only lipstick, mascara, and sometimes blush. When clients ask me how I feel makeup should be applied I usually respond with – less is more (which happens to be one of Edward’s beauty mottos too). After an application I want to see my client light up and I want them to feel beautiful. I might use foundation, concealer, powders and play with color but the end result should be natural beauty.

The Edward Bess collection is chic, fun and simple. He doesn’t throw in a million colors, tons of glitter or crazy packaging. The line offers many options that are easy for any woman to work with at home for a simple day look to a glamorous evening look. Inside the sleek black compacts are natural and playful colors made with the best formulas I have ever worked with. If I could sum up the collection I would say that Edward Bess is the perfect little black dress – timeless and always beautiful. At the store I offer consultations, technique lessons and applications for any occasion including bridal. If you have never used this line before get ready to fall in love.
