Physician’s Formula Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Powder

My skin can prove to be a challenge for blush because of my fair skin tone. In the winter months, I am paler than a ghost but then as soon as it warms, I will instantly start to develop a gorgeous olive skin tone if I choose not to wear sunblock. This leaves me with a set of cool weather makeup and a set of warm weather makeup. Fortunately, one day while perusing through the makeup aisle for some home goods, this blush caught the corner of my eye. I decided to give it a go and instantly fell in love with it. It matches both seasonal skin tones and it creates a flawless healthy glow. This blush also comes packed with Euphoryl and other natural plant extracts that claim to mimic the effect of endorphins when applied. Pair that awesomeness with the smell of violets, and you will be wanting to brush this blush on every day for a mood boost.

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Sugar Scrub

LUSH Mint Julips lip scrubI am obsessed with LUSH. Anytime I venture down the mountain from Summit County and into the city of Boulder, CO, I absolutely have to visit LUSH. Their products just put me into a trance of happiness and I always leave the store knowing that I bought quality fresh handmade goods. I live up in the mountains at 9,160 feet and I snowboard daily. The dry air exposure ends up taking a toll on my lips during the winter season. Luckily, this lip scrub saves the day! After I have been out on the mountain all day, I rub my lips with this delicious scrub (it feels so good!) and then follow up with LUSH Honey Trap lip balm.

Bobbi Brown Essentials Brush Collectionbobbi-brown-brush

I seriously, love, love, love, these! As it is stated by Bobbi Brown, “The right tools are just as important as the makeup itself.” I could not have said it any better. I find you need to have quality makeup tools to create your signature look. I use mineral makeup which needs brushes that are of high quality and can deliver precision with each swoop. I found the Bobbi Brown collection offers both qualities that leave me feeling like a pampered work of art. Each brush lifts the perfect amount of product and applies it in a flawless manner. The bristles of the brushes do not lose their shape, their hairs, and are easy to wash. Plus, aesthetically the brushes look great and tactically I love feeling the wood of the brushes between my fingertips. I recommend purchasing the Bobbi Brown Essentials Brush Collection to get started, and then buy the brushes she sells individually online so that you have a complete arsenal of makeup tools. This is worth the investment. Believe me.
