Celebrate March’s Birthstone: Aquamarine


Hey March Birthday Babes!

As we’re getting closer and closer to the first day of spring (which is the 20th by the way), March’s birthstone couldn’t be more perfect! Aquamarine’s light and cool color reflects the ocean blue and pretty much complements all spring colors. March babies share a lot of qualities that remind us of the sea, like their love of traveling and finding joy in peace and serenity. With such soothing qualities, it make sense why those born this month are very approachable people and good listeners.

Get ready for the spring season by playing around with bright colors, especially blue! Create tons of fun, bright looks with our 88 Color Shimmer Palette, which has a wide range of blue and green hues for you to create your own ocean-inspired look. Balance out your bright eye look with some neutrals from our 88 Color Neutral Palette. Blend the colors together to get a vibrant and cool, yet collected look. Line your eyes with our Gel Liner in ‘Gunmetal’ and sweep on some of our Loveable Lash Mascara (don’t forget to first curl your lashes with our Eyelash Curler) to give your eyes more depth and drama. Bring some color back into your cheeks using our Duo Blush Palette which has three different choices of shimmery and matte blushes. With your eye makeups full of color and drama, keep the lips simple with our Lip Gloss in ‘Peace Love & Mod’ for a touch of color and shine. Complete your look by giving your nails some love! Use our rightfully named ‘Calm’ nail polish from our 10pc Nail Lacquer Flirty Collection, which is an opaque aqua color – perfect for all you Aquamarine beauties!

Now it’s time to go out and celebrate both your birth month and the spring time! It’s a good thing that March babies like getting attention because you will be sure to get loads of it with such a colorful, fun look like this one. Have a very Happy Birthday!

Beat the Winter Blues with a Sun-Kissed Look

There’s no denying it. We’ve got the winter blues. We’re missing warm summer nights and lazy days at the beach. But just because the weather is dull doesn’t mean your makeup has to be!

Here are our favorite tips to fake the sun-kissed look while you’re missing the sun.

  • Obviously bronzer is your best friend in the winter. Make sure you pick one that has more brown tones rather than orange ones. The trick to using bronzer is to only use it where the sun would naturally hit your face: top of your forehead, your temples, bridge of your nose, apples of your cheeks, and chin.

Makeup Artist Tip: Don’t forget to shade your jawline and neck so your face doesn’t look significantly darker than the rest of your body!

  • If you don’t want to use bronzer, you can still get a glowing look by combining a highlighter and blush with a neutral shimmer eye shadow. Make sure your eyes stand out with mascara or eyeliner.
  • Stick with warm tones like pinks, golds, and browns in your makeup during the dark winter months, as they’ll help you achieve that natural glow.

Don’t forget to change up your skincare routine in the winter to take care of your skin! Make sure you are exfoliating regularly. It’s hard to do this during the winter because your skin is already so dry, but it’s important to slough off those dead skin cells. Try a deep moisturizer or a moisturizing facemask to combat dry skin issues.

Let us know how you’re changing your beauty routine this winter! But don’t worry – Spring is just around the corner!

Celebrate February’s Birthstone: Amethyst



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!
