New! bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

complexion resuce

Perfection now available in a tube. I love the look of perfected skin but can’t handle the feeling of most foundations or CC Creams. They feel fine going on but get oily and disappear as the day wears on. I was excited to hear about Complexion Rescue and see how it could help my skin.

I started using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue just over a week ago and I am definitely starting to see improvements in my skin. But let’s start with how it feels. Its very light and super hydrating but doesn’t feel heavy. It must be the magic of a gel cream because it manages to create a flawless canvas but feels like I am just wearing a moisturizer. Most days one dab will do perfect. But if my skin is being particularly annoying I can layer to get smooth, flawless coverage.

Dual fiber brush

By the end of the first week my skin was noticeably more hyrdrated. Little trouble dry spots were all but gone. This is a great option for ladies like myself with combo skin. It combats the dryness without aggravating the oily spots. And just a small dab on my Dual Fiber Brush and I can get the most perfect coverage. I love how bright and healthy this leaves my skin looking and the more I use it the better my skin looks. This is one product my beauty cabinet won’t go without.

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
