Hello Birthday Beauties!

How lucky be born in the month of love! February’s birthstone, the Amethyst, is claimed to be associated with intelligence, honesty, and loyalty. However, the most known feature of this vibrant purple gem is that it was originally only worn by royalty and was said to give the wearer power and strength. Having all these qualities, it’s no wonder they chose this gem to represent the month of love! ;)

We want you February babes to celebrate accordingly and to really feel the love on your birthday, so obviously you’ll need the perfect look to go with it. Those born in February tend to be quite attractive and sexy (lucky you!), so start off your look using our 120 1st Edition Palette which has a ton of purple hues to give you the perfect, sexy purple smokey eye makeup. Balance out the vibrant purples with some darker neutrals using our 28 Color Smokey Eye Palette – don’t forget your Eye Primer to ensure your eye shadow stays in place. It’ll really help bring out the pigmentation!  Try a different look and line your eyes with our Eye Crayon in ‘Royalty’, which is a gorgeous shimmery plum color. Complete your eye makeup with some of our ‘Foxy’ False Eyelashes to really give your eyes a sultry look. We can’t stress how important it is to define your brows, especially when you’re wearing heavy eye makeup. Give your brows some lovin’ with our Flawless Brow Trio. You can thank us later ;)

Going out on the town to celebrate? Go the extra mile with your look using our Contour & Blush Palette to really define and bring out your gorgeous facial structure. Don’t forget to keep your Crème Luxe Lipstick in ‘Naked Peach’ in your clutch for touch ups! Although Amethyst beauts are said to be quiet and shy, you won’t have to worry because a gorgeous look like this one really speaks for itself. Wishing all of you the happiest of birthdays this month!

Happy New Year, gorgeous gems!

After kissing goodbye 2013, we are so ready to take on the New Year! For all you January babes, we want to celebrate and recognize your birthstone, the beautiful Garnet. Although this gem comes in a variety of shades, such as yellow, green, and purple, it is most known for its rich, deep red color. Those born in January are associated with the virtues of truth, purity, and ambition. However, the main quality of January and the Garnet gem is their constancy in friendships! Why not grab your BFF and celebrate your birth month with a Garnet-inspired look?

Since Garnet holds such a deep red hue, create your look around a deep red lipstick. Our Crème Luxe Lipstick in ‘Red Truffle’ or ‘Moody Merlot’ are great colors to get in the mood for your birth month. Don’t forget to line with your lips with our Waterproof Lip Liner in ‘Retro’ which will create a clean line and make your dark lip last longer. With such a statement lip, keep your eyes simple with our 88 Color Neutral Eyeshadow Palette  which has a ton of nudes, taupes, and golds to work with or if you feel more devilish, go for a smokey eye and add a bit of sparkle with our conveniently named  glitter in ‘Deep Red’. Whether you go for the neutral eye or smokey eye, take it one step forward with a bold cat eye using
