DIY Make-Up Brush Holder

19 Mar

Very cute and VERY easy and under $10.


Here is your step by step:

  1. Buy a glass container. 
  2. Fill with river rocks or any other kind of stones.
  3. Stick brushes in the rocks, brush side up.

I bought the glass container at Michael’s Crafts for $7.99 and the rocks for $2.99.  

Oh look, here. Have a coupon for 40% off. Image


You could even use some bling-ed out diamond looking vase filler – $5.99 from Amazon

Sign of Love – What If Living Your Dream Meant Living a Lie?

29 Jan

LUSH Cosmetic launched a new campaign in support of LGBT Rights – worldwide!  



The Sochi Winter Olympics begin this weekend, and the anti-gay laws are still in place. With the global spotlight on Russia, leaders are feeling the heat.

LUSH asks that if you are in support of equal love and equal rights you take a photo of yourself with a pink triangle on yourself and post it to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and hashtag it with #signoflove.  LUSH is then going to compile a photo album of all the people (names excluded) and send it to the Russian Embassy on Valentine’s Day.

Please share this message in hopes that we as human beings can have global freedom of love.

Props to LUSH for their treatment of humans and animals (no testing.)

All Natural Mineral Foundation – Alima Pure.

14 Jan

Like many others I got on board with the BareMinerals rage a number of years ago.  Unfortunately, it totally broke me out and made my skin look really dry and flat.  Not really sure why.

Since then I have been reluctant to try other mineral based make-up, although I received samples of Alima Pure from a local natural makeup store and decided to try it and I was pleasantly surprised.  


It covers well, feels silky smooth and doesn’t make me look cakey – plus it has a cute bird on it!



Put a bird on it!

Alima Pure also carries a wide variety of mineral eyeshadows!  Super cute and super shimmery!

Urban Decay – Naked 3

9 Dec

The launch of this new palette is super exciting!  I love my Naked 2 palette and use it several times a week.  The colors are beautiful and have excellent staying power and the case is strong enough that I have taken it on two vacations.

Here is the new Naked 3.  It has more rosy hues than the previous Naked palettes but all the shimmer you have come to expect.


It retails for $52 and consists of 12 colors, a mirror and a brush.

Here ya go- a swatch comparison for each of the Nakeds.


AND a tutorial from Keiko Lynn to show you how this actually looks on a person. CLICK HERE for the detailed step by step.
