NEW Urban Cowgirl 5 Minutes to Gorgeous Kit

I was just sent the 5 minute to Gorgeous Kit to review and I am really impressed. The whole makeup kit comes in a cute little paisley makeup bag that caught my attention right off the bat. Today I got my first chance to check out the makeup and it works even better than it looks!

The concealer is really creamy and did a good job at covering up imperfections. The standout for me was the blush and eyeshadow, the texture is amazing and the color is perfection. I use the Absolutely Peach blush and its the most beautiful pale pink, I would never pick this color on my own but its stunning on. And the 3 in 1 eyeshadow Eye Bling in Slate makes my eyes pop. I only tried it as a shadow and it blended so easily but the color is striking and I have had no problem with creasing.

Such a great makeup kit everything all in one pouch and its not just cute they are great products. Would make a great gift or reward yourself with the Urban Cowgirl 5 minutes to Gorgeous Kit.

The Ultimate Self-Tanner Guide!

Hopefully everyone will be putting on sunblock this summer, rather than tanning oils. With all of the warnings about the sun, and the damage it can cause your skin, being tan comes at a price! Why put your health on the line for a little tan?

Have you tried many self-tanners? I’ve tried a couple, and I’m usually not a fan. It’s hard to get a natural looking tan from a bottle. But the awesome staff at Glamour Magazine tried most of the self-tanners out there, and they’ve come up with a list of 9 products that actually work!

Guerlain Terracotta Huile du Voyageur Nourishing Dry Oil SPF 8 For a dewy beach-ready look, slick on this tinted, gold-flecked body oil over your usual SPF lotion before you head outside. At $60 a pop, it may be pricey, but one bottle will last you from June to August.

Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs This little $10 bottle is one genius beauty multitasker: It tans you up in days and smooths legs fast.

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Lotion Planning a staycation this season? Try this slightly shimmery lotion—which should be applied daily to build a subtle, natural color—for an I-summer-in-Saint-Tropez kind of glow. ($11, ulta.com)

Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer Afraid of making a mess in your bathroom? Try a drip-free mousse product like Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer for an even, pretty base. ($8, at drugstores)

Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion For an extra-sexy tan, slather on Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion. It glimmers, in a good way. ($20, bloomingdales.com)

Fusion Beauty GlowFusion Face and Body Natural Protein Tan This beauty-insider favorite has developed a cult following for its subtle scent and gently bronzed finish. ($58, sephora.com)

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Golden Perfection Self-Tanning Milk for Body Need to get a goddess glow in a flash? Estée Lauder’s miracle-working Self-Tanning Milk starts to show color in an hour. ($27, bloomingdales.com)

Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer Airbrush For an easy transition into skimpy summer tops and dresses, spritz on Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer. It’s easy to mist on and leaves a totally streakless, natural color. ($28, lancome.com)

Victoria’s Secret Bare Bronze Shimmering Body Oil While the gorge Victoria’s Secret swimsuit models may have been blessed with good genes, it’s this light oil that gives their skin that silky, drool-worthy sheen. Apply this shimmering lotion to give your bod a slight bronze tint—and prepare for the “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” pickup lines to roll right in. ($24, victoriassecret.com)

Neutrogena GET THE LOOK – Miranda Cosgrove

MTV MOVIE AWARDS

June 6th 2010

Neutrogena GET THE LOOK – Miranda Cosgrove & Vanessa Hudgens

Make-up Artist: Coleen Campbell-Olwell – Miranda Cosgrove

Coleen Campbell-Olwell: I loved Miranda’s young and hip red dress for the MTV Movie Awards! To highlight her natural beauty, I kept her makeup fresh and fun – peach-shimmer lips and smoky eyes with a hint of copper.

The trick to keeping Miranda’s face luminous but shine free for the long night was Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Foundation and Skin Clearing Oil Free Pressed Powder, both in Natural Ivory. Then I swirled Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush and Bronzer, in Posie Glow, onto the apples of her cheeks. I LOVE this palette—it’s so versatile!

To create Miranda’s smoky eyes, I applied Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Copper Glow. It goes on sheer, but you can build it up for a more intense look. For dramatic lashes to frame her gorgeous brown eyes, I brushed on two coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in black. And here’s one of my secrets: for an attention-grabbing look, I pick one facial feature to focus on – in this case, Miranda’s eyes. By keeping her lips more subtle using Neutrogena MoistureShine gloss in Healthy Peach, I was really happy with the result.

Skin prep is also just as important so there is a great base to apply make-up. Recommend the Neutrogena WAVE to exfoliate the skin pre-event so the surface is smooth and ready for application. Also on a hot day, it is important to wear an SPF in your moisturizer under your make-up. Neutrogena Anti-Reside Shampoo is also a great product to use once a week to remove the residue of hair care products from your scalp.
