The Story Of My Makeup Addiction

I am writing this lens to confess to the world my addiction to makeup! My brother used to make jokes about the bathroom we shared when we where growing up and he called the bathroom "Beth's Beauty Boutique" because I had so many cosmetics, perfumes and just a lot of makeup!

Try to guess what my profession was for almost 20 years. You guessed it "A Cosmetologist". I went to beauty school and learned every aspect in the beauty field.

My favorite things to do in the beauty field were you guessed it again, Makeup Application and Hair Color!

I am currently working in a salon part time and have a wealth of knowledge about the beauty industry.

I will share my favorite cosmetics with you, give you lots of makeup tips, videos on makeup application and where to buy great products.

This makeup palette is my favorite! Coastal Scents 88 Color Makeup Palette

Please feel free to let me know what your favorite makeup brands are.


Makeup Kits - Great ideas for the makeup junkie on your list this year. Take a look at these makeup kits.

I love Mineral Makeup. I have tried Bare Escentuals, Avon and Marykay made one too, Out of all three I would have to say the Bare Escentuals is my favorite, because the color seems to match my skin tone perfectly and it is not too glowy. Bare Escentuals tends to have a little glow to it, but it is very subtle and the glow actually gives you a healthy look.

Mineral Makeup is made of micro crystals, mineral makeup reflects the light to smooth fine lines and blemishes. Mineral makeup is much healthier than your regular liquid makeup because it doesn't contain petroleum dyes which can be harmful to the skin.

Mineral makeup has natural sun protection, and mineral makeup does not allow bacteria to grow, so you don't have to worry about it going bad. and will not cause an allergic reaction. Minerals makeup is also great to use on skin that has had medical procedures like dermabraison, and on problem skin conditions like rosacea, and acne, .

Mineral makeup is irritant-free and it is also weightless and incredibly long-wearing, and you can sleep in it!

I love it.

It does not clog my pores and it has a naturally high SPF. And it provides excellent coverage.

Mineral makeup doesn't feel heavy at all or feel like you have a cake feeling on your face.

Bare Escentuals Mineral Makeup On eBay

I love finding Bare Escentuals Mineral Makeup, Stila lip gloss, Urban Decay and all of the latest makeup trends on Ebay! You can buy them for a fraction of the cost at department stores!

How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles

Sometimes dark circles are caused by pigmentation, but you can fix them with topical creams that contain Hydroquinone or retinoids or you can get laser treatments. You can get Hydroquinone and retinoids from your dermatologist or you can try Avene Retrinal H.A.F Gel, which is around $40, it contains retinaldehyde. If you want a quicker fix laser is the way to go. But, It is very expensive.

You can also use concealer to cover it up. I like Benefit's get even blotting powder concealer
