How Effective Is Your PM Beauty Routine?

This is a skin care article

A nighttime beauty routine is important — take quiz to find out if you’re using the best products for your skin.

Take quiz

Halloween makeup can be greasy and thicker in nature than an average makeup product.
So if you have a dirty face? Clean it up! I mean really deep clean it with La Roche Posay Effaclar line of cleansers and blemish treatement.

I tried the cream cleanser and love the rich thick foamy suds that washed clean without making my skin feel dry.

With continued use it can help clear up blackheads and work on stubborn acne like skin.

The real gem of the line is the wee tube of blemish treatment that contains salicylic acid as well as an ingredient to help slough off the dead skin that usually heals up in a red brown

The last thing we need are more spots that have to be lasered off at a later time for a higher price.

So check out the website and find out which La Roche Posay product is right for you!

Fresh, Fun and Funky Halloween Makeup and Costume Ideas

This is a makeup tips article

For each Halloween look, we’ll give you the steps for completing your makeup, hairstyle and outfit.

See ideas

Hello! It’s that time to begin the celebrations! For some of you the halloween party is around the corner, and for others it’s time to get ready planning Thanksgiving travel, what to do for the office party this year and family Christmas photos.
Something for you to consider that is affordable and easy access is the new limited edition color icon palette from Wet ‘ n’ Wild cosmetics.

You can find these at any Walmart, Target or drugstore near you and the suggested retail is $4.99

It comes with both a brush and sponge applicator and includes a free black sparkle eyeliner pencil. So it’s definately got some bang for the buck!

I’m demonstrating the Night Elf color kit and find

it’s versatile enough to do eyeshadows from day to night-which means perfect to go from work to party! There is a color that will work for brows and that gorgeous red is a shadow or a blush.

So this inexpensive wee palette is a great gift or necessity for your purse this season.

I’m testing this before I leave to get the Mancub and try not to show up at his school wearing a full

face of evening styled makeup. So I apply the
white highlight on my brow bone.

Then the medium brown over the lid and use the rich red for a contour.

I line with the black sparkly eyeliner on top and a quarter inch on the bottom corners.

I use the red also as a blush, then finish with the dark grey in my eyebrows. Woo hoo! Time to carpool!
Now I happen to have some of the summer season high impact pigment matte but buttery feeling MegaLast lipsticks from Wet n Wild so I complete my look with that in a rich blue red matte lipstick.

I wore the makeup for the rest of the day and it stayed true in tone and pigment. I did not notice any significant creasing or fading of the shadows so I’m thinking all around this is a great buy and
a good look!

You can find Wet n Wild products at your local Walmart,Target and drugstores. To see more about the brand visit their website at

Green brides and weddings that are being planned similiar to Chelsea Clinton with Earth
friendly dress, decorations, cake and why not beauty? Brides consider the Bambola Beauty line of skincare to get you wedding photo ready!

I have a few items here to share with you that are hand batched, not mass produced to quality comes in every bottle plus value!

Next, the line is cruelty free and never tests on animals!

I have been using the Invigorating cleanser which is full of Anise extract which revs up the blood flow of the facial skin giving a great healthy glow!

I follow with the Vital toner because it’s full of grape skins and carrot root meaning natural anti-oxidant protection for my skin.

I love, love, love the Glycolic Sugar Cane exfoliator because it is powerful and gentle at the same time. If you need to get the surface of your skin retextured and smooth, this product is a must for your pre-wedding beauty routine!

I am using the Hydration booster a couple of times a day!
I apply in the morning before work but while I’m on the set and drinking coffee and working, my skin begins to show my fatigue and dehydration….so…I put on another wee layer of Bambola Beauty hydration booster and I look refreshed!

Finally, the intensive eyecreme is amazing at plumping fine lines around the eyes and it’s gentle too! I recommend these products because they work for me, so why not try them and experience how they work for you!
