Best Foundation: glo-minerals Pressed Base

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.

Lock down your health and fitness plan right away. If you don’t feel one hundred percent, then you certainly won’t look it either. What I’m saying is to start eating healthy, and figure out a whole foods diets within your caloric needs. The best foods for your skin are healthy fats, and those that contain lots of water and vitamins. See my other article on what foods are the best for you skin here. Also, have a good sweat session for at least 20 minutes a day! Sweating out toxins in your body is the best inner cleanse there is, forget about the fad diets! Tone it up with strength training to lose extra unwanted pounds. Find your comfortable weight and learn how to manage it throughout your engagement. Do NOT try radical diet and exercise programs, they are temporary solutions and will most likely make you look exhausted and HANGRY. (Not sure what hangry is? Look it up)

What is a Beauty Blender?

beauty blender I’ve really been wanting to try a Beauty Blender for the past few months, but I’m so in love with my actual brushes that I couldn’t find a good enough reason to purchase one for myself. Then by surprise, I received one in my Birchbox! For those of you who don’t know what Birchbox is, it’s a monthly subscription to a little goody box of skincare and makeup samples so that you can try the newest items in the beauty world. I’ve found so many new lotions, hair products, and other goodies that I would have never known about otherwise, and I think the $10 a month is definitely worth it.Read More

Matte Redefined: The Newest in Lip Color


Suede Matte Collection from Glo Minerals.

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.
