Getting that perfect look can sometimes be difficult if you do not have the right tools.  I'm going to share with you some of my must have products and tools. There are some great ones in here for gifts as well....that's right the holidays are fast approaching and I know if I don't start my shopping list I will quickly fall behind.Earth Theraputics resized cosmetic brushes

 

 Earth Therapeutics also offers a Cosmetic Brush Set, it includes 5 brushes that are packaged in a travel case. All the brushes have nice bamboo handles and synthetic nylon bristles that are cruelty-free and laser cut. The kit includes a powder brush, round tip blending brush, flat tip shadow brush, angled tip eyeliner brush and lash & brow groomer. I really like the angle tip eyeliner brush. It works fantastic to apply liquid or gel eyeliner. I was having a hard time finding a eyeliner brush that I liked and was really happy to try this one. This is a really nice set that I think would make a great stocking stuffer or gift for any family or friend who is makeup savvy. Now that we have our great makeup brushes let talk about some great makeup to apply with them :)

The compact is perfect size to take on the go with you and the shadows are sized to fit recommended applications. The compact also has a perfect sized mirror for application. I really Jane iradale celebrate 20 anniversarylike this pallet of colors. Another beautifully done collection by jane iredale is the gilded collection 24-Karat Gold Dust it comes in a convenient tin with three shimmering powders in it created from Mica, a diamond pearlescent pigment. The thing I like most about this product is that it can be used on the cheeks, eyes and lips….I’m always happy about multi use products. You can also mix your favorite moisturizer and apply to your body to give you an added shimmer. jane iredale puremoist lipstick Keterina is a beautiful lip color that goes fabulously with the other jane iredale collections or by itself. It is a matte mahogany rose. It really saturates your lips it feels soft and smooth and will give you long lasting lip color keeping your lips looking and feeling amazing.  jane iredale also has a Jelly Jar gel eyeliner line that is amazing.  I love the colors that are offered. I tried the green and the purple which really gave me a nice change from my regular black eyeliner. They also have a black and brown to choose from as well.

If you have a holiday event that you are unsure how to dress for (casual or dressy) then it is always safe to go for the in-between! Jeans are famous for being a casual fashion statement, but if you wear dark blue, black or pretty much any color it instantly dresses it up a bit. For the top you can either wear something that is all out dressy, such as a silk button-up blouse or spice it up with a sparkly fun sweater. You can also wear a sparkle tank top or T-shirt and tone it down with a blazer, like Jessica is wearing above.  

Highlight Item:

H&M: Jacket

Description: Loose-fitting jacket without buttons in fabric with a soft drape. Two front pockets.

YBF Automatic Eyebrow Pencil 10.29.13 Certified FabulousI recently started paying more attention to my eyebrow color. I noticed in photos with the flash on my eyebrows (a light brown color) tend to get washed out. In attempt to make them more defined, I started applying brown eyeshadow with a brush to fill out my eyebrows. It kinda worked, but when I saw YBF Automatic Eye Brow Pencil in the office, I just had to try it out. And I haven't gone back. I love this pencil! I use it everyday and it's just the right amount of color and definition I wanted. The universal taupe is a soft color that blends really well with my eyebrows and makes them look much fuller. This universal taupe is designed to match any hair color, so you can't really go wrong here! The flip side of the pencil has a brow brush that I found helpful to blend in the color and create a more groomed, defined look. Using this eyebrow pencil everyday has made my makeup looks feel complete and more together!

Tarte Prismatic Eye Shadow Palette 10.29.13 Certified FabulousIf you want shadow that will make your eyes stand out, but in a natural, subtle way, head to QVC.com to pick up the tarte prismatic eye color enhancing shadow palette. Four shadows designed to enhance your eye color. You can choose the palette that is ideal for blue eyes, brown eyes, or green eyes. The combination of natural beige and browns create a great glow, really making your eye color stand out. Start with the lightest color as an all-over base color, then the shadow for your crease, the third on the outer half of the crease, and the fourth (darkest) at the outer corner of your eyes to really make them pop! The different shadows allow for dimension while still maintaining a less drastic makeup look. This palette also comes with a brush (different sizes per each end) that has very soft bristles - very nice to use! Apply some mascara after this shadow routine and you're golden!

Mally Lip Magnifier 10.29.13 Certified FabulousThe next staple in your natural makeup look is the Mally Lip Magnifier in Petal Pink. This lip color creates a soft natural flush on your lips. It's like a smooth buttery crayon - it won't dry out your lips and has a hint of shine to it. The lovely petal pink is just enough color to complete your natural makeup look in a chic and polished way. You can also combine this lip color will so many other looks you create. It easily goes with many outfits so I keep this lip color in my purse just in case! This Mally Lip Magnifier is also available at QVC.com

I'm already a fan of Guerlain due to their magnificent Nail Colour Lacquer, so I had high expectations when I tried more Guerlain products. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. 

The GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Night Cream was the first of their skincare products that I have tried. I love night creams in general; I always need to apply something after a cleanser just before I sleep. I absolutely love the scent of this cream! It's that kind of powdery clean, a classy and timeless scent that is not at all overpowering. The cream is rich, but not too thick and not greasy - it's the right about of weight for a night cream. This cream helps reduce the signs of fatigue, fill out wrinkles, and give skin firmer texture. Made with Pure Royal Concentrate (extracted from Bee products) and enriched with Royal Jelly, this cream will help renew and firm your skin during the night. But what exactly is Royal Jelly? What I find really interesting about Royal Jelly is that it cannot be duplicated in a lab - it has to be hand harvested from beehives1! In a bee hive, one bee is chosen to feed on Royal Jelly (while other bees feed on honey and pollen) and this chosen bee grows into the Queen Bee2. Royal Jelly's availability is rather limited compared to other ingredients, so it seems suiting that Guerlain (as an established and - in my opinion- a timeless brand) would use such a precious ingredient.

From skincare, I then tried a couple of Guerlian makeup products. The first is GUERLAIN Ecrin 2 Couleurs Colour Fusion Eyeshadows Vibrant Effects (08 Two Spicy). The packaging of this product is incredible. I take it everywhere with me just because I love the look and the mirror so much. It's small enough it slip into any purse, and it comes in a black velvet pouch that protects it from scratches and marks. I looks so beautiful that I love pulling it out to touch up any makeup I may be wearing. I still can't get over how beautiful it is. But onto the actual makeup inside! These two shadows are the perfect warm colors for this fall! The highly pigmented matte brown is a great base color - the warmth of the brown is really emphasized when combined with the second shadow - a fiery luminous coral. You can apply the matte brown and then layer the glittery coral on top for great dimension and luminous warmth. These colors compliment each other perfectly and really made my eyes stand out in a gentle glow.

I found their website to be very helpful and it was great to be able to learn about the creator Anastasia and the creation of the company. When the products came into the office I immediately grabbed the Covet Waterproof Eyeliner because I LOVE eye makeup products and this caught my eye because it said it was waterproof and it had five different colors!

As soon as I opened it up I was drawn to the post cards inside that showed the eyeliner color on one side and a photo of an eye makeup look with that liner color! It was awesome! Each card had a different look and was very inspiring to give someone ways to experiment with the makeup. The colors are: Asral (grey), Vert (olive green), Steel (a cocoa grey-ish), Noir (black) and Azure (blue). The Azure is my favorite because the color is so gorgeous, it's not a bright, neon blue but a nice dark blue.
