Milani Cosmetics Baked Blush in Luminoso

As you may have noticed, I’m a real girly girl at heart so when I discovered this adorable blusher in its fancy gold packaging, I just had to try it out for myself! Isn’t it just beautiful? On to the review… The Milani Cosmetics Baked Blush in Luminoso is a peachy coral toned blusher that works wonders at giving my skin a healthy and luminous glow.

Here’s how you can achieve summer’s hottest new makeup trend: non-touring

Non-touring ins and outs:   Move over contouring and make way for this season’s hottest beauty trend: non-touring.

Product review of the week: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil

The great thing about this pencil is that it provides a very natural finish and because of that, it’s easy to fill in your eyebrows finely.   The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz […]
