I lived in Florida for 11 years and still miss those Florida winters!  But, I admit, this is my kind of snow!  It's beautiful falling and just enough to make snow cream, but doesn't make the roads too bad.  My hubby and I were out catching snowflakes and looking at them under a magnifying glass.  It's amazing how every one is unique....and I couldn't /...

The last several days have been picture perfect!  Feels like fall is in the air--finally!  Along with that comes changes--in nature and in my color line up!  I will be discontinuing several Lipsilks in order to make way for new colors.  Say good-bye to Pink Pomegranate, Plum Mauvelous, Nude Beach and Caramel. If one of these was your favorite, here's /...

I hope everyone is doing well!  I took a bit of time off to recuperate from a procedure I had done and in my haste to 'catch up', I banged my shin pretty good and have a nice bruise to show for it!  Now tis NOT the season for bruises on the legs--they don't go well with shorts.  I had this great idea...cover it with makeup!  I took my Bermuda Sand Foun /...

As I sit here thinking of what wisdom to embark  ;)  I decided to share something we all know, but even I had to be reminded of recently.  I was battling a respiratory infection last week so got PLENTY of sleep and lots of liquids those first critical days.  I also didn't feel like even showering and therefore slept in my makeup those days.  When I fi /...

Hello again!  I have decided to change my blog day from Sunday to Wednesday.  That way you'll have the info to try on the weekends. This week's tip is about lining eyes.  Now I can't take credit for this one.  I picked this up doing a one-on-one makeup demo.  For a striking finishing touch to accent your eyeshadows, use 2 colors (both wet) and line y /...

For this next tip, I thought I'd discuss the multiple uses of the Bright Eyes Concealer.  I've discovered several ways to use it!  I formulated it as a solution so as not to have to create 'light, medium, dark' concealers that may or may not match.  This way, by mixing it with your foundation, you can make it as light or as dark as needed to cover. I a /...

I've gotten several questions about 'how to apply' this or that this week, so I thought I'd answer that here.  I'm one of those that believe that for the most part, there are no wrong makeup application techniques.  I always try to formulate my products to be multi-taskers even though I create them for a specific purpose. Here's my order of application: /...

I must say, this past week was a rough one for me--a lot going on.  I'm late in doing my blog, but that's ok because I wouldn't have had this makeup combo if I had blogged the other day! I wanted something patriotic for our cookout yesterday.  I normally do the same combos out of routine, but this time, I ventured out.  I've been airbrushing my foundat /...

I was watching an old show recently and the girls were at a slumber party and asking each other questions. The one that made me stop and think was 'If you were stranded on an island, what would you rather have- lip gloss or mascara?'  An odd question, but still.....I would definitely want one of my Lipsilks!  Why?  Most of them have some SPF, but beyond /...
