Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty Shadow Palette

rob scheppy palette

The Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty eye shadow palette was personally crafted by the creator of Kim Kardashian’s signature smokey eye. This dual-textured collection boasts 4 pigment-rich matte and shimmer shade pairings designed to “cocktail” – wear alone or in any combination to create custom looks.

I like that the palette itself is smaller and can fit in my purse or gym bag. And the shadows were created to be used wet or dry depending on the look you are going for. With a collection of mattes and shimmers this has become a go to palette for my everyday wear.

Swatch of the palette from left to right is White Russian, Pearl Fizz, Rose Champagne, Cinnamon-tini, Pavlova, Cuba Libre, Blackout and Bella Notte.

I found the lighter shades were not very pigmented and didn’t show up very well. The White Russian even with 3 swipes is barely visible. I think a dab of water would make this apply a little darker though. The mid to dark shades though had great pigment and great staying power even when tested without a shadow primer. Overall I think this is a great collection every day colors and a few shimmers to kick your look up a bit. Very wearable and I will be getting lots of use from this set.

Get The Look: Grammy Hair with help from Jenny Balding

Music’s biggest night celebrated the 57th Grammy Awards and stars showed off their “gotta get it” hair styles! Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken Styling and Grooming Expert, shares her favorite Grammy styles and steps for how your readers can recreate these looks for their personal red carpet event.

Gwen Stefani’s Disheveled French Twist
“This Disheveled French Twist can be as casual a look as you like, to dress up or simply where slightly disheveled to tone down your evening wear.” – Jenny Balding

  • Start with day old hair as you’ll have some texture in your hair and it will be easier to manage
    Use dry shampoo to really boost the texture of your roots (Redken Pillow Proof dry shampoo is excellent).
  • Spray throughout your roots and even the mid-lengths to create body and texture. Shake through with your fingers.
  • Use a light hairspray for a little hold – Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray works best as it is a versatile spray. Mist over all and shake up with your hands to really create body and movement.
  • Section out the crown and front area and pin to one side.
  • Sweep the sides and back together and then twist upwards and pin. Make sure to use hairpins (U shaped pins) so they can really anchor the hair.
  • Take the top section , brush lightly, then let it drop gently to one side
  • Loosen the hairline a little with your fingers to work suits your face shape.
  • To finish, add a little shine by misting Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over – this is very light but gives just the right amount shine you need.

Jessie J’s Sleek Bob
“The sleek bob compliments an interesting outfit as it has cleans lines and a sleek finish giving a more creative edge.” – Jenny Balding

  • Part your hair to whichever side suits your face shape best.
  • Blow dry really smooth and straight to create the sleek effect.
  • To create a really sleek finish, use a straightening iron from midlength to ends.
  • Finish by using Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist to create the ultimate shine

Achieve a Naturally Flawless Complexion this Spring with Pür Minerals

  • 20150131_103813

My skin has been all over the place with the weather changes. And on top of being spotty it has been pale and dull.  I was given to review the Pür Minerals’ 5 Piece Start Now Kit and I was excited to see if it really could improve the look of my skin that much.

So I waited for the weekend and a night with lousy sleep when I woke up looking like I live under a rock. And this my friends is where the trial started. The first step is the Correcting Primer, a light serum just a tiny drop and I was able to cover my whole face. I like how light the serum was and it left my skin soft and smooth and ready for some magic.

Next step was the foundation just a bit on the brush and I worked it in circles across my face. Right away I was amazed at how well it covered my skin. And it covered the lines, spots and discoloration without feeling heavy. In fact it feels like you have nothing on.

 

 

The next step was the Bronzer, just a dab on my brush and I worked in circular motions again. I love the color of this bronzer it definitely added warmth and color to my skin tone but was still light enough to not overpower my fair skin.

The last step was the mascara. And this is a great little mascara! The formula was creamy and made my lashes look really long without any clumping. The whole 4 step process took less than 5 minutes and you can see above how dramatic the change was. My skin went from spoltchy and sad to smooth and poreless. Love this stuff and for $39 its a great starter kit that will work for anyone’s budget.
