I fell in love w @Clarins products last year after using their Double Serum … I have since started using their Super Restorative eye cream which is heaven in a bottle. I needed to repurchase mine and for some reason was checking out the actual Clarins website and stumbled upon some amazingness. Not only do they give you some good sized samples (bottom row) - 3 free with every order; but they also had a gift with purchase (body kit w products that firm, tone and decrease wrinkles) and free shipping on purchases over $75. So I got all of this product plus the cute reuseable bag for the cost of just one item. #score #clarins #skincare #skin #makeup #ilovemakeup

Looking for a great neutral palette for traveling? I found this mini (as in palm-sized) Full Exposure palette from Smashbox in the To-Go area of Sephora. 

A great bonus? Buy any 3 items from that area and get a cute clear makeup tote for your carry-on liquids!

With the summertime heat hitting all-time highs - humidity and sweat-proofing your makeup is a must! Here are some tips and products to so just that …

1) Prime: create a base for makeup to stick to. I like Urban Decay’s Naked Skin BB Cream but some other good ones are available from MAC, Smashbox, MUFE, Cover FX and Benefit. 

2) Foundation: if you dare to choose a liquid or cream foundation - make sure it’s long wearing and mattifying. My favorite is MAC’s Pro Longwear formula. In fact, they have a whole line of long wearing products that include concealer, lipsticks, glosses, eye and lip liners, eye shadow bases and brow products. 

3) Eye shadow primer: if you are going to wearing any eye product using a base will help keep it where you put it. My favorite is Urban Decay Primer Potion. But MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pots in Painterly and Soft Ochre are favs as well. 

4) Setting your Makeup: using a setting powder over your foundation and concealer in places where you tend to get oily is the best way to extend the amount of wear time. Most brands have their own form of this product. I like to use a translucent powder to do this and keep a compact of it in my purse to touch up any shine without adding any color or texture. 

5) Sealing: Using a setting spray helps seal everything together and makes everything look finished. MAC’s Fix+ is a favorite but for extra humid days Urban Decay All Nighter spray works well. 

Whatever you do - the trend for summer makeup tends to be lighter and fresher. So steer yourself to light weight products and bright colors and you’ll look great!

The Kylie Jenner look and lip trend are all anyone can talk about right now. And for good reason - it’s a very natural glam look that most women would feel comfortable wearing.

Her skin looks great, her eyebrows aren’t over done, she’s got super lush lashes and those full-looking neutral colored lips. 

Many have tried to find new combinations for her lipstick and really it all depends on your skin tone. Using exactly what she uses might not look the same for that reason. 

It’s rumored that she uses Whirl lip liner alone or sometimes combined w Pink Plaid lipstick, both from MAC Cosmetics. Other good matches are KatVonD Lolita or Lovecraft lipsticks or Girlactik lipsticks in Allure. 

To achieve the fullness, over draw your cuspids bow and then follow down your natural lip line. This keeps it from looking fake.

This 👆 is the reason for the lack of makeup posts … I haven’t been doing any! It’s funny how artists go through phases - lots of color, lashes, and contour,very minimal and one featured focused or whatever. I’m in my skin phase. #makeup #makeupartist #skin #beautymakeup #naturalmakeup #iwokeuplikethis #mua #ilovemakeup #iloveigmuas #ilovemaciggirls

Combing a few of my @sephora finds in one look. I’ve been on the hunt for something lightweight to wear for “off” days and have heard nothing but great things about @urbandecaycosmetics Naked Skin beauty balm.  Also loving @sephora Matte Lustre liquid lipsticks in Fig. #makeup #lipstick #beautybalm #sephora #urbandecay #naturalmakeup #nakedskin #ilovemakeup
