Products for Strobing

Do you strobe? Have you tried it yet? It’s the opposite of contouring and it’s sure having a moment right now! And it seems easier than contouring too. Simply think of where light naturally hits your face like the top of the cheekbones, down the nose and middle of the forehead and apply the product there. It's such a refreshing touch to add to your look!

Here are some products that can help you get in the strobing mood:

The Makeup Show Haul

I attended The Makeup Show in Los Angeles a few weeks ago and picked up some products I’m uber excited to try out! Some I had not seen before and some I had on my list to pick up.

Since it’s tax season, I had to really be watchful on my dollars this time around and thankfully the show had a blogger preview so some of the products that were on my list were in the bag the show gave us. Yeah!! I've just started trying some of them out so do you see anything you like?

The-Makeup-Show-Haul

1. ESUM Pro Finishing Sponges ($20/2 sponges @ musebeauty.com) – here’s a new twist on the makeup sponge – these combines the wedge and oval sponge in one so you can get every inch you’re trying to get to.

2. BÉSAME COSMETICS Boudoir Short Hair Contour Brush ($48 @ sephora.com) – this one is in the same category as those oval brushes that are blowing up everywhere. It feels so nice on the skin and is able to get into all the angles on the face … flawlessly!

3. SENNA COSMETICS Lash Detail Mascara ($20 @ sennacosmetics.com) – I’m really picky about my mascara and don’t like many. I’ve worn this one twice and what I like about it is the super skinny fine brush that seems to be able to maneuver color on ever lash. If you’re looking for natural looking lashes, this might be one to try.

4. NYX COSMETICS Soft Matte Lip Crème in Transylvania ($5.99 @ bedbathandbeyond.com) – I’ve been needing this shade in my life since it came out and has been sold out at my Ulta since it came out.

5. SEPHORA PRO Press Full Coverage Complexion Brush #66 ($36 @ sephora.com) – this seems to be Sephora’s answer to the oval brush craze and I can’t wait to see how it performs!

6. SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer Water ($32/3.9oz @ smashbox.com and sephora.com) – there’s been quite a buzz on this primer water since it emerged recently. Can’t wait to try this out!

7. VERA MONA Color Switch Duo ($19.99 @ veramona.com) – a genius product! Stroke your brush against the black to remove the color so it’s ready to dip into the next shade. And the white middle part can be soaked in water if you feel like applying shadow with a wet brush.

8. KAT VON D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($19 @ sephora.com) – from the queen of liner. Need I say more?

9. PUR Browder Perfecting Brow Powder in Medium Brown ($22 @ kohls.com) – this combines a powder with fibers to help fill in sparse areas. Interesting application pointer!

10. MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Lip 2-in-1 Lip Sculpting Pen in #40 Carmine Red ($27 @ sephora.com) – quite a unique twist on giving lips a multi-dimensional look. Can’t wait to try this out!

PUR Eye Polish + Top Coat

File this under, ‘How did I miss these?’ They came out last fall and when I recently saw them online I knew they were a must try. Inside the formula is a thick creamy pigment and eye primer and outside is a top coat, which keeps it from creasing on the lids and makes it long-wearing.

PUR Eye Polish Eye Base + Top Coat ($26 @ purminerals.com, ulta.com)

Velvet – burgundy amethyst

Caviar – blackened olive with gold flecks

Get Yer Tan On With Mystic Tan, St. Tropez and Pur Minerals

I’ve slathered on a lot of different self-tanners all month … I know, I’m not a big fan because I can never seem to get it right but for those who can, the finished color you get with these three have parts of me realisticly glowing. Just don’t forget to exfoliate before applying! From L to R:

PUR MINERALS 'Get A Little' Self-Tanning Lotion ($21.50/4oz @ purminerals.com) – has a light citrus scent and infuses good-for-skin ingredients like vitamins A, E and grape seed extract. 

ST. TROPEZ Everyday Perfect Legs ($45/5oz @ sephora.com) – contains Aromaguard that just about eliminates the stink-ola that normally comes with tanning products. You can’t see it in the picture but this one is two-sided. The white pump is the gradual tan lotion and the black pump is your immediate bronzer color.

MYSTIC TAN Sunless Tanning Lotion for Face + Body ($38/5oz @ mystictan.com) - reduced stink-ola. Yeah!! Also contains a cloth glove to help spread the forumla evenly on the skin.

Rocks O’ Fun With Pur Minerals

Pur-Minerals-Pur-Rocks How super cool looking is this PUR MINERALS Pür Rocks product? And the umlauts over the u? Rock!! These nuggets of color remind me of that rock candy gum from yester-year but these look a little less appetizing then that gum. This is from the Spring 2009 Collection and could not be more fitting. Each of the rocks in the box are shimmery with rosy undertones. Use a large brush for cheeks and jaw or a smaller brush for the eye area. $22.50 @ purminerals.com.

Two Nudes To Get Into

Purminerals_2PUR MINERALS Mineral Lip Tint SPF 15 in Sandy Quartz ($16.50 @ beauty.com) from the Spring 2008 color collection. Sheer nude with a slight hint of iridescence.

ShulsSHU UEMURA has THE perfect pinky-nude lipstick included in their latest collection. I find most nudes too chalky or matte. Basically too there! This Rouge Unlimited in Serene Pink from the Rebirth Collection balances matte and glossy for the perfect smooth finish. And nude lips are so in right now. $23 @ shuuemuracom.

Fall Color Pick - Mossy Green

I consider greens, as in mossy greens, a very neutral color. They are so earthy, warm and natural that they could take the place of nudes in most cases. Olive, tarragon, and the creatively named products below, all make up our 2nd Fall Color Pick, Mossy Green.
The way I’m thinking about this piece is if I were to paint a picture of moss using different shades and textures, which ones would I use? Here are our picks to make up our portrait:
