Makeup Monday: Glitz and Glam!

Happy Makeup Monday, Beauties!

I can’t believe it’s that time of the year again! This holiday season is all about glitz and glam, and that’s exactly what the beauty authority, Sephora, is giving us! I’m madly in love with the new Sephora Favorites Glitz &Glam Deluxe Makeup Sampler. They’ve packed the 11 best of the best products into one awesome kit. This truly is a gift that will keep on giving. You can’t go wrong with any of the goodies in this chic sets, but here are a few that really stood out to me.
Let’s take a look inside……
1.  Josie Maran Argan Oil-Argan oil is truly one of the best natural oils for your face and body. This Jose Maran oil is luxuriously smooth, smells great, and leaves a tinted glow on the skin.

2.  Nars Orgasm Illuminator-Orgasm is a Nars cult classic and the illuminator works for everyone. a. Strategically place this on the high parts of your cheek bone, the tip of your nose, and your brow bone and you will have a youthful and dewy look in no time. Illuminator is the secret to how some look like they just landed from a Bahamas vacation in the dead of winter! 

3.  Tarte cheek stain- a perfect place to start if you’re not really a blush wearer gives just a pinch of natural rosy hue.        


4.  Lorac Perfectly lit- Amazing quality and pigment, really bronzes, set off the best features –perfect for a holiday party or any evening out.

5. Sephora Copper Electro Liner – So So beautiful! This long-lasting liner is truly a treasure. The color particularly brings out brown or hazel eyes, and just makes them shine. It’s good to switch it up from the black eyeliner into something much more festive.

6. Bare Minerals Illuminator-This is the perfect size for travel bags, and gives great coverage for imperfections, while simultaneously highlighting the best features.

7. Tara Tarantino Gem Gloss-Can you say sparkle?!?! You are sure to love this pretty gloss. The bronzing color is flattering to all faces and the shine is no joke!

Also in the kit is Tara Tarantino Sparklicity eye shadow, Lorac 3D lip gloss, Tarte Smooth Illuminator Serum, and Tarte Lock n Roll 12 hour shadow. All the products have a gorgeous bronzy glowing color.
This set is so chic and glamorous! I wish it wasn’t just for the holidays, but all year round.

Deliciously Beautiful:Pumpkin Pie Face Mask

Pumpkins are more than just a large round decoration. They are a universal icon of the fall, and the holidays. When I see a pumpkin, I get a happy heart-warming feeling. However, I became even more pumpkin-happy to learn that pumpkins are an excellent beauty resource! 

The Pumpkin has versatile uses from Halloween decor to delicious pies, but surprisingly the pumpkin makes an excellent face mask ingredient for all skin types.Pumpkins naturally contain glycolic enzymes which help renew skin cells, they are rich in Vitamin A (skin healing), C (anti-oxidant) and the pumpkin replenishes and moisturizes dry skin and gives it a healthy bright glow.

 Many spas around the world use pumpkin in their skin treatments, but there's a way you can bring the spa to you!

This Pumpkin Pie Face Mask is an easy at-home spa treatment to protect and soothe your skin in the changing weather.

Ingredients :2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin, pureed one-half teaspoon honey
one-quarter teaspoon milk (or soymilk)

Optional For Dry Skinone-quarter teaspoon heavy whipping cream (moisturizing; alpha hydroxy acid)
one-half teaspoon brown sugar
 Optional  For Oily Skin
 one-quarter teaspoon apple cider

Combine and mix the ingredients for your face mask. Gently apply the sweet smelling mask to your face avoiding the eye area. Rest and relax for 15 minutes while your pumpkin pie face mask gently exfoliates, nourishes and conditions your face. The bonus aromatherapy the mask gives will delight you! Rinse with warm water and apply the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.

 Pumpkin Pie Face Mask!


Not the Do-It-Yourself type? That's OK! Try this Melis Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub that leaves your skin silky smooth. $27.00

Try some Pumpkin colored makeup & nails. ORANGE IS IN!

Makeup Monday: SuperModel's Beauty Tips!

What can we say about Super Model's...I mean it's their job to be beautiful! How cool is that! I've collected some beauty tips from my favorite models. When these beautiful women pass on beauty tips, we should all take note!

KATE MOSS                                           

English and infamous Kate Moss, has been known as a controversial wild child in the industry. So, it's no surprise she believes in dramatic eye makeup. Her beauty tip "Always make your eyes stand out." Kate says she never goes anywhere without a black eyeliner with her, and smokey eyes are her favorite look. Kate has been known to do her own makeup for famous photo shoots and the catwalk.  On average, Kate makes about 9 million per Advertisement, so she's doing something right!   


Miss Fierce herself! I have so much respect for Tyra for accomplishing so many black model first, and taking her a career to a whole new level with being a CEO, producer, the host of two amazing shows, and starting a self-esteem summer camp for young girls. Tyra is all about keeping it real and readily admits her flaws, and campaigns against the eating disorders and drug use that can truly be the ugly-side of modeling.  Tyra is a busy, busy, busy woman! I swear by her beauty tip of using white eyeliner  on the water line to make tired eyes appear more open and awake! It really works like a charm.

Here is Tyra using the trick and she often does it on her show! Tyra's classmates use to make fun of her and say she looked like an alien when she was child...Ironic, because I think you would have to live in space now, to not know who she is! Trya made Forbes top 10 list 4 times in a row! You GO Girl.

Probably the most famous thing to come out of Brazil, besides the wax! Gisele has graced the cover of every major magazine, been crowned as the muse for Dior, and Naomi Campbell says that Gisele "brought sexy back" to the modeling industry. Gisele loves the natural beauty look. Her beauty tip is to keep your hair shiny by using coconut oil, brushing her teeth not twice, but 3 times a day, and avoiding direct sunlight between 12 and 2pm!  Gisele's beauty advice"Always powder your T-zone and the lines going from your nose down around your mouth so you don’t look like a bulldog. When those areas are shiny, it’s awful." Gisele admits that she use to have a problem picking pimples and blemishes and struggles with keeping her hands off her face. See, supermodels have flaws too! Gisele also uses Lancome' Pink Foam Cleanser to remove her makeup every night.

Makeup Monday:NARS 2011 Holiday Collection is here!

Happy Makeup Monday Beauties!
 Aside from the food, fun, and family that the holidays brings one thing that really brings me seasonal joy is the holiday makeup collections. Beauty brands put out their best and brightest during the holidays, making gift shopping a blast. The only problem is: I want to get everything for myself! The anxiously awaited fabulous holiday collection, that everyone will want Santa to put under the tree this year is NARS .

Luxury to its core, the collections is filled with rich ,classy colors, a hint of sparkle, dazzle, and  it gives so many mix and match options for sexy winter looks!
Let's take a look

Mariacarla Boscono,

Creative Director and Founder, Francois Nars photographed stunning Italian supermodel  Mariacarla Boscono, who served as the muse for this collection.
Mariacarla’s skin was first prepped with PRO-PRIME Pore Refining Primer, evened with Siberia Sheer Matte Foundation, and set with Snow Loose Powder to create a flawless complexion. I love how the powder is named "Snow Loose" for the winter holidays!
Nars is infamously known his  previous blush Orgasm, which has a cult like following. But in this collection he's released a color called G-Spot! Bold. It gives the chiseled highlight on her cheeks.

G-Spot Blush and Multiple

However, its all in the eyes for this look with the eyeshadow trio Arabian Nights the colors are powerful, and simply gorgeous. The sultry eyes are complimented with the Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.
Arabian Nights! A must have!!!

The holiday collection staple Joyous Red Lipstick is another bright star of the collection!
I must confess my favorite part of the holiday collection is the nail polish! I have the Orgasm polish and the quality is great! It goes on smooth and stays put.  These new colors are perfect for the holidays without being too cliche. They truly have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head!

The collection's eyeliners
You really can't ever go wrong with NARS, but I believe this is one of the best collections yet! When you get your hands on these it will be Happy Holidays indeed. If any makeup junkies like myself, or just recreational users get the products and create a look be sure to take pictures and send them to

I hope everyone who is close to me knows they will be recieving some type of beauty products from me for the holidays this year (occupational perk)!

Beauty Icon Miss Piggy releases MAC and OPI Line!

Miss Lorelei Piggy
 37 year old Beauty, Style, and Fashion Icon MISS PIGGY is making a come-back like never before. With her OPI nail polish line kicking off this fall, brand new Disney Movie, and MAC cosmetics line in the works she is the hottest thing in beauty since mascara!

Miss Piggy made a grand appearance at Macy's during New York Fashion Week and Apparently  Designers including Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors have been sending her over 1,000 pieces and ideas for all her events coming up.

However, this little piggy is no stranger to the spotlight. Miss Piggy has been known for her over-the-top personality, glamorous looks, and
can-do attitude!

No wonder the beauty industry giants snatched her up. Miss Piggy told Elle magazine that she never leaves the house without makeup, and if she wasn't a famous TV star she would have been a fashion editor!

When Miss Piggy was asked about dressing as a plus-sized Pig in the industry she responded "If it's expensive, it fits."

Let's take a look at some of her iconic beauty moments:

 This is one of the looks for the MAC ads and Miss Piggy eyeshadow collection to be released this winter. Too fab! I def will be buying!
The OPI Nail Polish collection is already in stores & the colors are rich, glamorous and stylish just like the Pig behind them.

My faves are getting’ Miss Piggy with it’a sparkly red color and 'Divine Swine' a gorgeous champagne hue.

Here is a sexier side of Miss Piggy we've never seen before!


Here's Miss Piggy with Singer, Songwriter Neyo who did some of the tracks for the Muppet Movie coming to theatres on Thanksgiving Day. Neyo loves working with Disney, and also made a song for the Princess and the Frog Soundtrack.

Speaking of a frog and a princess, here is Miss Piggy with her on-again, off-again fiance' and co-star Kermit the Frog. Miss Piggy says she and Kermit are like "Oprah and Stedman"!

Here is Miss Piggy Dolled up for lunch with the Queen! 

One of the reasons we love Miss Piggy is because of her confidence and attitude. Proving that Beauty comes in all colors, shapes, and sizes and sometimes may not even be human!

I can't wait to review her MAC products and see The Muppets Movie this fall. For more updates, pics, and beauty tips follow @LauraLoveBeauty on Twitter, and send all inquiries to
