Valentine’s day makeup ideas
By Dee Padron
Valentine’s day is a very romantic holiday filled with gifts and dates. The pressure of making February 14th unforgettable until the very last detail, like your makeup, may come with stress, which can cause stress pimples (nobody wants those). To eliminate some of that stress, we’ve researched some cute Valentine’s Day makeup to help with your planning this year. Say goodbye to running late this year. The first makeup look is by Tina Halada. This is a pink smoky halo eye to romanticize your date with your partner. The lip is a very neutral pink shade so it doesn’t overpower the eye look. This pink based makeup look brings out the true colors for Valentine’s Day if you are the traditional type.
Great Valentines Gift Ideas
By Kaitlyn Warczinski
Valentine’s day is a tradition for people to exchange cards, candy, or flowers with their special “valentine”. Most of the time couples exchange gifts with each other to show how much they mean to them. Getting the perfect gift for your partner is…difficult, so here are some ideas that might help you for picking out the right gift. Every woman likes roses a dozen of roses are nice but 50 long stem roses really make a statement. Chocolate and strawberries go with everything, you can gift delicious chocolate strawberries alone or pair them with them with any gift. If your partner starts or ends the day with a good run, their probably in the need of new shoes, show that you support them and their health goals by getting them some new shoes. If your partner starts the morning with coffee, try getting them new mugs or even matching mugs a perfect way to enjoy your morning. If your girl wears jewelry getting her some earrings or even cute necklaces. Just to show you care, cook a romantic dinner it will end in the perfect night. If your partner is really into taking pictures but doesn’t have a camera, get them a camera it’s meaningful and will capture moments that will later on will mean a lot. Get your partner smelly things like perfume, cologne if there into that and it will show that you pay attention.
IPSY Bag Review
By Lizbeth Gutierrez
A Glam Bag is a cosmetics bag filled with 5 deluxe, sample, or full-sized beauty products (including makeup, skincare, hair care, and nail care) personalized just for you. The Glam Bag is only $10 a month, or $110 for an annual membership*.
EYEKO Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner
You’ll be shocked at how stress-free and simple a cat-eye can be with this EYEKO pen. It’s easy to hold, with a precisely-shaped tip, and an opaque, smudge-free formula to help you ace dramatic wings every time. Though touch-ups are a cinch, there’s no need to re-apply—this formula stays put. I really liked this eyeliner like I said easy to use and is rich and has a good color.
ELLA EDEN Eyeshadow
This shadow goes on like butter, blends like a dream, and lasts for hours without fading which for a night out is amazing. I like to apply it with a wet brush so it gives it that extra pop of color. Like all of ELLA EDEN’s products, this shadow is never tested on animals.
ILLAMASQUA Colouring Pencil Lip Crayon in Lust
This creamy lip liner is so good, I don’t personally use lip liners but this is good. This long-wearing wonder prevents lip colors from bleeding, smudging, and smearing. The your-lips-but-better rose shade works with literally all your lip colors. ILLAMASQUA’s gorgeous products, this one isn’t tested on animals.
PURE BRAZILIAN Leave-In Conditioner
This keratin-infused treatment will give your hair life. Keratin (aka the protein that makes up your skin, hair, and nails) smooths and strengthens your hair shaft while improving elasticity to minimize breakage and split ends. When I used it, my hair was soft, bouncy, shiny (and healthy!).
SLMISSGLAM SB68 Eye Brush
This shader brush is fab for smudging liner or shadow along your lower lash line, or blending deep shadow shades into your crease to make your eyes pop. Creams? Powders? These synthetic bristles pick up all kinds of pigments and blend them seamlessly. How pretty will this sparkly handle look in your makeup bag? We get compliments every time we take it out for a touch up. I personally just love brushes so if you are like me , you will love this brush.

THE BIGGER THE BETTER!
Skincare that is Trendy!
By Lizbeth Gutierrez
I have been in a lot of makeup stores lately and I saw some skincare that I have seen for a while these products have been in the watch not only in stores but other beauty gurus who swear on these products. Like the famous Mario Badescu, so here we have only products of his brand!!
Acne Facial Cleanser
The Acne Facial Cleanser is a must for problematic skin. It has a light citrus fragrance and feels so soft on the skin. I have sensitive skin and, thankfully, it does not irritate it. This product can be used in the morning and night, and it does an amazing job at breaking down makeup.
Cucumber Cleansing Lotion
The Special Cucumber Lotion is not a lotion, it is more of a micellar water or toner. It has a light cucumber smell and removes all stubborn makeup or dirt from the day. I have had problems with other toners that have really dried out my skin but with this product no need to worry. After toning, make sure to use any moisturizer. This product should be used only a night.
Oil Free Moisturizer
The Oil Free Moisturizer has SPF 17 and gives my skin the perfect amount of hydration and protection it requires. It dries instantly and doesn’t make my skin feel oily or greasy. It keeps my complexion feeling soft and smooth all day and works well under makeup as a base.
The Drying Mask pulls all the dirt out of your skin. After 20 minutes of the mask, the stubborn problem areas come to the surface and it makes it easier to get rid of them. It has an interesting smell so just be aware. Follow up with your favorite Mario Badescu moisturizer and serums and you are good to go.
The Drying Lotion. It comes in a glass jar with pink sediment on the bottom and a clear water-like consistency on top which is separated. I take a cotton swab and dip it all the way in the jar and put on all my problem areas and I sleep with the craziness on my face. The product dries quickly so no problems for your pillow. Wake up the next morning then wash it off and I promise you will see a significant difference.
Rosewater Facial Spray
A refreshing, hydrating mist to use anywhere anytime. Simply formulated with fragrant herbal extracts and rosewater for a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. Spray your day and night creams for a boost of hydration or use it to set make-up or spray on dry hair throughout the day
