Sheer Mineral Makeup–Foundation

[tag]Sheer mineral makeup[/tag] is a fabulous choice for people who want extreme coverage without looking like you are wearing a lot of makeup. The face powder minerals reflect light and hide a multitude of imperfections.

Mineral makeup even helps to cover up dark circles under your eyes.

I actually use my [tag]sheer mineral makeup[/tag] as both concealer and foundation. This way you don’t have to wear two products, it saves you both time and money. Love it!

Here are some of my top picks for mineral makeup foundation:

AIRA Sheer Mineral Tint SPF 20

AIRA Cosmetics Mineral Sheer Tint SPF20

AIRA has created this glorious multi mineral tinted foundation and it’s a keeper. I like it because it’s water resistant and great for wearing to the gym.

Like many of the other sheer mineral makeup out there this formula is perfect those with ultra sensitive skin.

Sorme Sheer Mineral Loose Powder

SORME Mineral Secrets Powder Fair (Model: 421)

This foundation is great for evening out skin tone and it’s made of 100% Pure Micronized Minerals. This face powder is also fulled with antioxidants such as vitamin A, C & E. All of these will protect your skin from free radical damage. This particular brand comes in 6 colors that will blend seamlessly no matter what your skin tone is.

There are two different ways for you to wear this versatile loose mineral powder. First of all for light coverage you can simply use your powder brush. For heavier coverage you can use a sponge, this will still blend perfectly for an even and natural look.

One of my favorite tips is to actually mix this sheer mineral makeup powder with some of my favorite moisturizer to create a healthy and natural liquid foundation.

Quick Simple Perfect Lipstick Tip

Loreal Crayon Petite Automatic Lip Liner in Reds

This is a lovely shade of lipliner, I love the deep red. Loreal Crayon Lipliner has a long line of shades though, so even if you are not a fan of red you can still make use of this long lasting lip liner.

Want an easy lipstick tip? To keep your lips looking perfect all day long just wear your Loreal lip liner all over your lips under your lipstick, as a base. Just make sure you match the shade well or you could end up with a much darker look. Keep the liner a little lighter and you are set.

Crayon Petite is one of my top picks for lip liner because it will not only make a perfect lipstick base but also keep your lipstick from feathering and bleeding outside of your lips.

Nina Ricci Nina Fragrance is a Popular Fave

Nina Perfume by Nina Ricci, 2.7 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for WomenThis Nina Ricci Nina fragrance is one of the perfumes I got for Christmas last year. They say it’s a fairy-tale fragrance and it really is one. It is wholly unlike anything I have ever smelled before.

Nina Perfume by Nina Ricci has a sharp and fruity fragrance that I positively adore. It’s an energizing scent that invigorates you to the core.

And the bottle! There is not more gorgeous bottle in the world. I love the color, the shape and the silver toned leaves. It is so hot!

In this Nina Ricci Nina fragrance you will scent top notes of Calabrian Lemon and Caipirinha Lime. Then you will notice the middle notes of Love Apple, Peony, Fleur de Lune as well as Praline and then the base notes of Apple Tree, White Cedar and Musk.

Gorgeous Gifts For Her Under $25

Gift giving is more fun when the prices are on the lower side, at least for some of us and I am happy to say that I have spent the day finding a ton of affordable gifts to share with you my most favorite peeps. This post is all about [tag]under $25 gifts[/tag] from There are some really nice deals here so take notes! And keep in mind there is not too long left to shop online for Christmas presents.

bath salts and lotion

The whipped lotion is heavenly, smooth and creamy and light as air. I like a thick body butter as much as the next girl–or guy–but sometimes its nice to have a light texture to your lotion. This body lotion is nice and light and the scents are delicious.

The bath salts are just as wonderful and best of all they bubble! They are colorful, bubbling and again they smell amazing.

The choice of scents are as follows:

  • Citrus Chiffon
  • Grapefruit
  • Strawberry Swirl
  • Vanilla
  • sinus soother

    This is a soft and supple eye pillow is a lovely choice as one of my under $25 gifts because it’s perfect for the days when a person feels their head is going to literally crack and fall off ones neck. It uses both aromatherapy and acupressure to relieve sinus pain and headaches. The relief will be fast and lovely. Just heat up this eye pillow for a few seconds in the microwave and the peppermint, spearmint and eucalyptus will be released in order to clear the sinuses right away. It is good for people who are suffering from a cold or even allergies.

    green c toner

    This is a wonderful and soothing facial toner that is all natural. I like it because I find it very moisturizing, I can feel it healing my skin while many toners tend to strip it. This toner is a perfect under $25 gift because it will help balance the ph of ones skin while removing old and dead skin as well as excess oil and impurities. This formula is filled with nutrients that make it a lot more soothing than your average toner.

    All of these under $25 gifts have been chosen with the ultimate pampering in mind. They are fun and they are luxurious, what could be better?

I recently tried their Buttercream Frosting Shower Syrup and it was shockingly good. I wanted to suck it right out of the bottle! The scent was so indulgent and I loved how it lingered on my skin for hours after my shower, this is always a huge selling point with me.

    Jaqua Cocoa Buttercream Shower CremeBut onto the lip products that this luxury shop of luxury brand have to offer. They have Jaqua lip glosses with shimmer to them, one in tubes, pots and entire kits with flavors like mint chocolate, pina colada and even champagne among others. These are high end lip glosses that you get from this exciting luxury store.

It is a plastic ring filled with the most sensuous [tag]Jaqua lip gloss[/tag], you’ll love it. It is a cute gift idea as a stocking stuffer for her. Any Jaqua beauty products make great Christmas presents, especially their sets.
