What’s in for spring for make-up? Lots of things! Colorful eye makeup, shimmery shades of nail polish and bright lipsticks are in. But my favorite trend in makeup is the glossy, chunky lip pencil. These fat pencils act like a bit of a lip stick but have the shine of a gloss. They are easy to apply and every makeup line seems to have one. Here are a few favorites.
Nars has one called the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil. They come in six shades and each has Vitamin E. Cost is $24.00. My favorite shade is Frivolous which is a iridescent pink shade.
Tarte is my go to makeup line as their makeup contains more natural ingredients. TheirLip Surgence Natural Lip Tintis based on their fantastic cheek stains. The company says you’ll see an increase in lips moisture content after using for 28 days, so it’s like an extra bonus. Amused is a bright pink which is perfect for this season and is $24.00.
It’s a pencil, it’s a lipstick, it’s a gloss all in one!
My little one has snuck into my make-up bag on a number of occassions and came out looking a bit over done up! I then began to wonder what she was actually putting on her skin (clearly she does not need any anti-aging products). Glad I found out about http://www.lunaorganics.com They have a line of all natural kids play makeup and face paint made entirely with natural, non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials. Plus all ingredients are FDA approved!
They have cute kits like Fancy Fairy Play Makeup ($14.95) which includes fairy dust blush, eye shadow pack and purple cinnamon lip balm.
I also love the First Make up Kit ($18.95) which includes blush, foundation, eyeshadow pack and hot pink bubble gum lip balm packed in a windowed tin case. They also offer Rock Star Play Make-up, Animal Medley Face Paint and many others. So there is something for everyone from the little princess to the perfectly painted pirate.
The party favors are the way to go if you are planning a little girls party and don’t want to worry about where the lip balm is from or what toxic ingredient it has in. Luna organics is made in New Hampshire and its products are paraben free, non-toxic and not tested on animals. The company uses recycled paper products and their containers are BPA-free. Three cheers for eco-friendly makeup!
