Check out Daphne Guinness’ creepy new MAC ad!

Here’s a sneak peek at the Daphne Guinness Collection, by MAC, which draws inspiration from pigeon’s blood and the Italian artist Duccio (among others). The new line will be available the day after Christmas.

Daphne is an heiress of the Guinness family. She was also named in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1994.

I’m in love with BECCA’s Brow Powder!

Do you ever feel like your eyebrows look like this? ^

I have bare spots in my eyebrows like probably most of you…. and 9 times out of 10 – I reach for my eyebrow pencil. But I find that a lot of times – it LOOKS like I have drawn on Chola eyebrows!

Well BECCA has an awesome Brow Powder that blends beautifully into your existing eyebrows and fills it naturally!!

A soft velvety powder that creates beautifully contoured brows by subtly defining shape.

  • Formulated to be harder that regular eye shadow powders ensuring it can be applied in fine strokes resembling brow hairs
  • Creates the brow shape, color, and density that you desire
  • Can be used wet and/or dry for greater definition
  • Preservative and paraben-free

BECCA’S Creme Blush voted favorite by Allure!

BECCA’S Creme Blush is the ultimate blush. This highly pigmented formulation and silky-smooth texture melds into the skin for an incredibly natural, “just blushed” look. Layer for added drama.

Allure Magazine named it one of their “Editor’s Choice” winners. I can see why! I love this blush! I tried it in Frangipani, and I love the color! It’s subtle – and beautiful. Gives me a little color, without being noticeable.

  • Provides natural, radiant, long-lasting colour to cheek, producing a radiant, healthy appearance
  • The highly pigmented, creamy formulation can be used to emulate the look of youthful skin and is good for most skin types (except very oily or blemished skin)
  • Contains anti-oxidant vitamin E
  • Preservative and paraben-free
  • Apply over liquid or crème based products (Luminous Skin Colour, Stick Foundation, Compact Concealer) and before setting with Fine Loose Finishing Powder.
  • Can be used on the lips for a beautiful wash of colour.
  • Using Crème Blush Brush #34 or Multi-Use Brush #59, apply to the “apples” of the cheeks (the fatty part of the cheek where it is possible to pinch the flesh and where you would blush naturally).
  • Swirl onto the cheeks with Small Polishing Brush #56 for an “air-brushed” effect

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector is a must-have!

  • Apply all over the face, then swirl Mineral Powder Foundation on all over the face for a “glow from within” look.
  • Use to highlight cheekbones, brow bones, and temples by dabbing over foundation and powder for an extra-dewey look using your fingers or Extra Small Polishing Brush #55, Small Polishing Brush #56 or Multi-Use Brush #59.
  • For maximum shimmer and radiance, apply over a BECCA Primer and leave skin unpowdered.

Like I said earlier, I’m not much of a foundation person. This product is just for people like me! It’s the perfect lotion if you want your face to glow a little bit – without applying foundation! My face shimmers – NOT sparkles. You can hardly even tell the shimmer is there, your skin just looks glowy. (I know it’s not a word, but I’m using it anyway.)

I like how natural it looks. It doesn’t look cheap – or like I should be heading to a club. It just makes my skin look healthy! You should try it!

PS: It also has this really light, barely-there-scent that just smells amazing!
