How do you feel about it?

When you see Burberry you think plaid and the perfume...did you think you ever add makeup to that? Well now you can. The label is set to launch in July, the collection will be comprised of about 100 color products for eyes, lips, and skin. The line will be carried in about 30 stores globally, including some Nordstroms here in the US.

I can't wait to see what the packaging looks like and the colors....we can only wait and see.

Tell me your thoughts? You excited?

Breast Cancer Awareness feat. Glamour Doll Eyes

In honor of the month of October for the awareness of Breast Cancer, I am highlighting a brand that specialize mineral eyeshadows. Glamour Doll Eyes is a brand created by Vanessa. Vanessa makes the eyeshadow by hand all by herself. Even the branding, packaging, and shipping is done by Vanessa.

So for this special month I have swatched the pink colors to her collection. There are more than this, but these will show how beautiful her colors are! Below is a picture of the colors swatched dry and wet (using fix+, but you can use water,or eye drops). You may also use any base you desire, but I figure anyone has these two options available.

I want to mention that the picture does not bring these to total justice! They are so much more vibrant and the PERFECT amount of shimmer. The pictures were taken without sunlight so you understand ;o) I am absolutely in love with Blush. The moment I swatched it, my eyes got big! Like a little girl on Christmas Day! I cant say anymore but great things about these pink colors.

Glamour Dolls Eyes allow you to buy these colors and others from sample baggies($2.00), sample jars($3.50) to full size jars($8.00). They also offer blushes/bronzers, eye lights (glitter) and new to the line are Goody Balms by Mel. So check all that and more at
And if you want some tutorials or reviews etc from Vanessa check her out at YouTube

Prepping Your Skin

Before applying makeup do you always prep your skin? Prepping the skin is the best way to get more what you pay for. In this I mean, longer lasting foundation. How great would that be, to have the least amount of touch-up throughout the day, and any busy girl would agree less touch-ups=happiness..Now here is a simple checklist that you can use when applying that makeup.

  1. Moisturize. Always moisturize face that has an SPF of 15 or greater. With the added sunscreen you protect yourself from the damage the sun can cause. Let moisturizer set for about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Primer. Applying a primer adds to the longevity of your makeup. It also fills in small holes or wrinkles for a smoother canvas. Some primers even help out even the skin tone for some who have patchy color.
  3. Chapstick. Just as you face is important so are those lips. They can too burn from sun. So always use chapstick, then of course gloss and or lipstick!
Hope this helps with some things you can use before you apply your foundation.
