Believe it or not, facial contouring is actually pretty easy! That’s of course if you have the right tools. Have you ever tried to sculpt cheek bones, or highlight around your eyes? If so, then you have done contouring before. When you have the right products, the effort is minimal! I am so happy to tell you about the new Contour Kit from gloMinerals! I have been anticipating the arrival of this kit for some time now. Well, I have tried it and I’m in love!
The first time that I ever used gloMinerals Pressed Base foundation was when I was 16 years old, and it’s a makeup product that has stayed in my bag throughout the years! It has surpassed the way any other foundation looks and feels on my skin. So, to do a spotlight on this awesome product is an obvious choice!
This is coming from a girl who has worked with other mineral makeup lines, has tried it all, and knows the FACTS about why the gloMinerals foundation is so far beyond what the others can do. When I say facts, I am referring to the ones right there listed on the box, written in black and white. INGREDIENTS MATTER! There are a few common ingredients in some of the most well known mineral makeup lines that contain skin irritants such as bismuth and talc. The most common reactions to these cheap filler ingredients are itchiness and dry flaking skin. GloMinerals stays true to the top of the line ingredients, and DOES NOT contain these irritants or any perfumes. Instead their goal is to provide unsurpassed coverage that nourishes, corrects and protects skin.
Have you ever heard that our skin absorbs 60 percent of what we put on it? It’s true! Our skin is our a largest permeable organ of the body, meaning that your body absorbs whatever you put on your skin, which is then flushed into the circulatory system. We assume that most skin care lines would be safe to use, but in fact many of them contain chemicals that are harmful to the body. We also assume that these chemicals have undergone testing, yet only 5 percent of 80,000 known chemicals have been tested for safety on the body. After all, the FDA does not regulate most cosmetics that are on the market, so be very careful when choosing your skin care brands!
You may be thinking now, “Well, what cosmetics are actually trustworthy?”. That’s a great question to ask, considering most beauty products market themselves in a way that is so believable. Even “All Natural” is misleading and usually not true. You have to be a “Certified Organic” line for that to be true! There are strict requirements to be a “certified organic” line, and they don’t mess around. The farming, the preserving, and the making of each product is kept under specific guidelines that the company has to follow. The details are really interesting, if you want to learn more about organic farming click here.
My favorite ORGANIC skin care line that I have ever used in my professional career in esthetics is Eminence Organics. It is a handmade organic line that farms all of their ingredients in Hungary. They are the most amazing GREEN company, I’m truly blown away how they create their products with sustainability near the top of their priorities.
Glo has always had long wearing and amazing lip options, but these two new formulas are a game changer. They are perfect for anyone looking for an everyday, apply once and go type of lip color. A matte finish is the newest trend in lip color (as opposed to a gloss or high shine). Matte lipsticks are usually very pigmented and have super long staying power. The tricky part to finding a great matte lipstick is to find one that actually has enough moisture in it! Hands down to Glo Minerals for creating the perfect combination of moisture and matte for a velvety smooth finish.
If you ask me, the most empowering tool that a girl can own is a great lipstick. Well, besides our brains, and maybe even our boobs in some cases. Having a perfect lipstick is kind of like having a pair of power panties for the face. If it’s just bold enough…look out world! For example, my name has become “Sassy” at work every time I wear red lipstick. It just does something to me inside that I can’t really explain, and I love it! Besides, bold lip colors are super fun to wear and are the easiest accessory to complete an outfit.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you lived it up over the holidays and are ready to bring in 2015 with a fresh start! If you have over-indulged yourself, then you might need a little boost to wipe away those party bags under your eyes. In fact, make this eye cream your new best friend, because tired eyes are so last year. As you know from my other post, I am a HUGE Glo Therapeutics fan, and use many of their products. I even used their moisturizer back in high school 10 years ago! It’s a line that has really stuck with me over the years, and I also recommend it to many of my clients.
I’ve always struggled with dark circles, puffiness, and hooded eyelids, I can honestly say I’ve tried just about everything to fix my many eye issues. They are hereditary in my case, but that doesn’t mean I can’t improve what my mamma gave me! The best eye cream that I have found is the Cyto-Luxe Eye Cream by Glo Therapeutics. It has been able to lift my lids, plump my skin, reduce fines lines and helps my dark circles! I pair it with the Cyto-Luxe Face Cream – both morning and night. I’ve been using it for about a year now and have seen a huge change in my skin.
