Birch Box, a Beauty Addict Must!

If you are a product addict like me then Birch Box is for you! You can visit their site to shop for the latest and greatest in beauty and to view how-to articles and videos. But the best part is that you can sign up for their monthly Birch Box for $10 a month.  It's an adorable little box that is full of handpicked samples, sometimes even full sized products! I always look forward to it's arrival each month and fall in love with a new product every time.  Check it out for yourself at

Here's a pic of a few favorites that came in the last two boxes:

Favorite new products!! Beautiful & Long Lasting!

The two products are must haves: #1 The Infallible 24 HOUR eyeshadows are fabulous! I filmed this video after I had bought two colors to test out and I loved them so much that I went out and got 5 more yesterday! At Target they are selling them for 6.99, and at Walgreens they have them for 7.99, but it was buy one get one 50% off there! 
#2 Tarte's Natural Lip Stain, LipSurgence feels and looks lovely. This long lasting stain adds rich pigment and is made to boost the moisture levels in your lips. Great choice for day or night cause the color will stay with you through any activity!

My vote for 'Best Dry Shampoo'

Got limp oily hair and no time to wash and dry? Well here's the answer to your prayers.... Rene Furterer's Dry Shampoo is the best on I have come  across for a few reasons.  It's sucks up all the oils around your scalp and roots, it doesn't leave a chalky residue, and it smells fresh not overly perfumed like some others that I have tried.  It's not the cheapest one out there but I believe that it is worth the extra investment. Time is money after all, and this product saves you a whole lot of time!

The Brilliant Beauty Blender

I wanted to share a staple in my kit that makes flawless skin a no brainer....  The one and only Beauty Blender! This one sponge will completely change the way you put on your face. I was lucky enough to work along side the woman behind this brilliant little pink wonder while we worked on the show X Factor.   Her work is flawless and lucky for us she was kind enough to share one of her secrets with the world,  the teardrop shaped sponge that she used to hand cut on set until she started mass producing them. I highly recommend adding this little gem to your daily applications, I promise you won't regret it.  Watch my tutorial and see how simple it is to apply an array of products with this one sponge.  Not only does it look great but it feels great while you're applying as well, like a mini massage for the face. :)
If you have any questions feel free to get in touch! In the meantime just remember to Blend Blend Blend!

Buy it and read all about it at:

Also when you're blender has reached it's final days you can recycle it! Be kind to the environment and send it to:

How to Create a Bronze Smokey Eye

This look is universally flattering and easy to recreate on yourself. I use a few of my favorite products like Stila's smudge stick waterproof eyeliner, Makeup Forever's Aqua Eyes pencils 10L and 19L, and MAC shadows 'woodwinked', 'embark' and 'cork'.  The brushes that you will need for this are a midsize eyeshadow brush for the lid, a crease brush, and an flat angle liner brush.
