The MAC x Proenza Schouler is debuting in a few days in stores (who else is excited?) and the shots being released from the collection do not disappoint! What I’m most excited about are the blushes and lipsticks. I think they did a standout job on the blush shades- the rosy pink will look amazing on all skin tones and the peachy hue will be so pretty on bronzy skin for summer.

As always, I’m a sucker for packaging, and the psychedelic-inspired casing of the line is so fun for spring and summer. I also love how the lipstick cases are rectangular and stray from the standard MAC bullet lipstick casing. Can’t wait to give these a try. Let me know what products you are anticipating to try out from the collection in the comments!

Chasing the American Dream, One Eyeshadow at a Time

Still No Oscar for Leo Dicaprio from Shiro Cosmetics' website Still No Oscar for Leo Dicaprio from Shiro Cosmetics’ website

Hey, you. Yes, you. Do you have a dream? I do. So do Caitlin from Shiro Cosmetics and Dawn from Dawn Eyes Cosmetics, two successful small cosmetics business owners. Recently I got the chance to chat with these two lovely ladies and found out everything about making their small business dreams a reality.

Conceiving Dream: 

For Caitlin, an interest in cosmetics has been lifelong: “I’ve always had a fascination with makeup for its power to transform faces in so many different, awesome ways. When I realized that independent cosmetics companies were a thing, I got really excited about it and dove in as quickly as I could!” Caitlin scoured the web, finding blogger reviews on other products to find out what they liked and didn’t.

Spring time beauty products are my absolute favorite time of the year. From the beautiful colors to the amazing finishes and let’s not forget the oh so gorgeous faux tans were sporting. Some of my Spring time go to’s are the Vita Liberata Luxury Tan 4-7 day tan.  This product is a buildable tanning mouse, light as air. You keep layering the product if you want a darker tan. I’m loving the airbrushed look it’s given me. Since I’m out and about with my little one most of the day I’m loving the Derma Doctor Brazilian Bomb Shell skin perfecting lotion with spf 30. It goes on smooth just like a lotion with no yucky sunscreen scent. No paste like finish and thick feeling.  I’m really liking it.  Now on to make up. I recently picked up a couple of Stila products.  The Stay All Day lipstick in Bellissima.  This dries matte so wear a good lip balm. The color is gorgeous and literally stays on all day. My other purchase from Stila is the Metallic Foils eyeshadow in the color kitten. Such a beautiful champagne gold like color. It comes with an adhesive to apply, however I don’t use the adhesive.  I just apply with my finger tip in a pat on the glittery metallic shadow.  I’m obsessed with it. I get so many compliments on it.   I hope you enjoyed this post. Please comment, share or ask away. Keep it Glam Beauties!!!!!

Today I thought of applying my most recent beauty purchases. All PINKS!!
I used Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink. I applied it lightly on the apples of my cheeks. I used Becca Cosmetics blush Gypsy as a cheek highlight. I applied it ever so slightly on the cheek bones. Then I used Too Faced lipstick in Marshmallow Bunny, which is a conditioning lipstick and moisturizes my lips. Then I dabbed OCC Lip Tar in Narcissis on the center of my lips, to add some sheen. I added my Illamasque lipstick in this picture because it’s a gorgeous color and I ended up using the lipstick  color Liv in the evening.  I kept it Pretty Pink all day, perfect for Spring! Hope you enjoyed this post! Keep it Glam Beauties!!!!

Volumizing and Texture Big Hair Don’t Care

Oscar Blandi is a hair guru!!! I’ve used many hair volumizing products but this one by Oscar Blandi is a hair DO!!!! I love how full, sexy and tousled my hair looks after 2 days of no washing. I don’t like to wash my hair everyday,  as it gets to dry and I’m in need of the oils to keep my hair looking healthy. I spray at the roots and let it dry then flip my hair over spray again and “voula” Big Hair Don’t Care!!! Definitely a weekly hair staple for me. Hope you liked this post. Many more to come. Keep it Glam ladies!

The Start of Something Glam!!

I’m so excited to start this new blog.  I’ve been in the beauty industry for over a decade and love to share review any and all  products I can get my hands on.  I’m a new mom and have taken some time off from the make up industry, however that doesn’t mean I haven’t stopped buying, swatching, trying on products and striking a pose in my bathroom mirror while doing it. The new year has arrived and I’m ready to get my heels wet (again)! What better way to do this than to join a community of Glammy’s who love and appreciate the same products I do. It’s going to be a busy year and I’m super excited to share, inspire and be inspired! So grab your favorite heels and your favorite beauty products and lets do this!!!!
