As summertime approaches everyone is on the search for that “glow”. A lot of makeup artists find it hard to tone it down during the colder months, but now that the warmer climate is upon us it is totally acceptable to pack on the highlight!
As a makeup lover and collector, there is always something to look forward to in the makeup world. That is the beauty of this industry. Trends always come full circle, better products are released and exciting collaborations are established. This palette ignited that excitement in me!!! It was one of my personal must haves for the year and I was honored to receive it from Morphe Brushes. They have collaborated with the fabulous Jaclyn Hill and created, in my opinion, one of the most well rounded and versatile palettes of the year at a ridiculous affordable price.
Motives Cosmetics is rocking the makeup industry in recent years. They released a host of new products at their World Conference this past February in Miami. The collection consisted of an array of blushes, eyeshadows, lipsticks and liquid lipsticks. I’ve had the privilege of receiving the whole collection.
Who doesn’t love glowing, luminescent skin? I know that I do. I originally planned on selecting my Top 5 Highlighters, but let’s be serious. There is no way that I could have narrowed down this list to just 5. As a freelance makeup artist that comes across all different skin tones, it is essential to have various highlighters that compliment all ranges of beauty. I also like to make sure I have different textures and formulas to alter the finish of look I am going for.
There are three different types of Highlighters: Powder, Cream and Liquid.
The lovely Violet Voss Team have released a bunch of new glitters and brand new pigments to their ever growing collection of fabulous products. I have always been a fan of their perfectly organized glitters but this year they have totally outdone themselves. I have recently been loving the holographic components in EVERYTHING, so the fact that it’s been incorporated into this holiday collection makes it extra beautiful…in my eyes.
Hi Lovies. So Lime Crime has released one of my most anticipated palettes of the year. They posted a picture of this beauty a few weeks ago and I instantly fell in love. After a while, in the makeup industry it feels like you have essentially seen it all, and most companies either improve or piggyback off other great ideas. This Grunge palette is beautiful because it is totally outside of the box, in a good way. I think the company took a risk on it, but this sold out palette has been on the wish list of many. One of the reasons that I love Lime Crime is because everything about their brand screams originality and brilliance.
When it comes to glitter, I will continue to stock up with the justification that they are all completely different. And in my eyes they are. Glitters can be cut different sizes and shapes, reflects different color components and simply photograph uniquely.
Sigma has released this BEAUTIFUL Steady Glow Collection for all of us glow goddesses that enjoy keeping that luminescent skin during the colder months. There is just something about shimmers that makes my skin smile especially when I can’t go outside and actually enjoy the weather.
When it comes to lip products I always find myself gravitating towards lipsticks with a matte finish. Dose of Colors recently launched four brand new totally matte liquid lipsticks!!! And I must say, they are gorgeous! The packaging is sleek with a matte and semi transparent casing. The formulation is a thicker consistency with a beautiful pigmentation that lasts all day.
