Dont Let The Media Define Beauty

I don't know how many of you guys have seen the Dove Evolution video, but I think that it is the perfect example of how the media is damaging our view of beauty.

See it here on youtube: Dove Evolution

I know I praise Pro Active like its the thing to do, but the truth is proactive doesn't work for everybody. In fact, I'm the only person I know that it actually does work for.

However, a product line that is more versatile is; Biore. This line is perfect for people who have large pores and don't feel like dishing out hundreds of dollars to get results.

My Favorites include:
Face wipes


Face wash

If you have all of these products your good to go. They help to reduce the appearance of my pores by cleaning them out wonderfully. [note: that your pore size can never permanently be reduced, but I'll take what I can get!]
Its also really helpful if you get a face scrubber or something like that. It makes it easier to loosen dirt and unclog pores. Another plus is that your skin will feel like silk afterward.

This Seasons Makeup Look

Are any of you guys as worried about what kind of makeup to wear for spring that would also be perfect for summer as well? Yea? I thought so.

I have found, and tested the most flawless/natural looking makeup you can possible go for this season. You know, the kind that makes you glow for the whole day, but not with all that glitter. And yes, it is Bobbi Brown.

-First we take a look at coverage. You don't want to look cakey or overdone, so the perfect solution this season is:

Bobbi Browns Tinted Moisturizer
"SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer is the perfect alternative to foundation for a more casual look. Perfect for Normal to Dry skin types. This tint of natural-looking color combined with sun protection blends smoothly over skin, and moisturizes while providing lightweight, comfortable, sheer coverage."

-Next we take a look at blush. What kind of blush goes great with sheer coverage? Sheer blush:

Bobbi Browns Top Rated Sheer Color Cheek Tint $22
"Get flushed cheeks with a sheer tint of natural-looking color. The translucent, lightweight formula glides on and blends evenly onto skin. Comes in a swivel-up stick for portability, convenient and easy application. Available in six shades. "
[note: a better color for this season is called sheer mauve, not pictured above]

-Last we take a look at that perfect glow-from-within trick:

Bobbi Browns Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick $38
"This shimmering, brush-on powder creates a soft, warm pink glow. Works well with neutral and pink blush shades.To apply: Sweep the Face Blender Brush through all five shades of Shimmer Brick Compact and dust lightly on cheekbones after blush. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of cheekbones - where light naturally hits the face - for the most flattering look."

And that completes the perfect skin look for this season and on into the next!
-have a good day,gigi

Best New Spring Fragrance

To save all you beautiful people from having to search and search for springs best new scent, I have found it for you!
Chance Chanel Eau Tendre:

"A new facet of CHANCE is born—the third generation of the CHANCE Fragrance family. The new incarnation of the decidedly young scent, CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Toilette Spray reveals itself to be both delicate and radiant, with an intoxicatingly light, fruity trail. An unexpected mingling of grapefruit and quince meets the crispness of fresh green notes, while a trace of Jasmine Absolute lingers in the air. Gently warmed by a sheer veil of White Musk, at once, innocent and seductive."
This stuff is addicting, and trust me, you WILL get noticed;)
