Protecting the Pout
While Miss Monroe sang nothing but the truth between girls and their diamonds, when it comes to beauty essentials, there’s no comparison between the love of beauties and their balms. Lip balms that is! Already making their way onto our blog countless times, lip balms are a serious subject for us beauties, as a perfect pair of plush lips are the canvas for pulling any look together. However, its an endless quest for us gals to find the right lip balm that will provide all the essentials for that perfect pout. So that is why we are beyond thrilled to share with you what we dare say is our saving grace of problematic lips… did we mention its oh so very “chic”?
Tata Harper’s anti-aging lip treatments have recently arrived in our boutique and ever since, its been love at first swipe! Just when you thought this skincare line couldn’t get any better with the incredible scents, results and natural philosophy behind their products, they go ahead and one up themselves! Tata and Co. have created a line of beautiful balms that not only luxuriously replenish, protect and hydrate lips, but they provide that surgically sought after plumpness…NATURALLY! Tata Harper you NEVER cease to amaze us! While other companies include various chemicals and toxins within their lip plumpers and even chapsticks, we are so devoted to Tata and obsessed with this balm through her use of eco-friendly ingredients and amazing results. As if there wasn’t already enough to obsess over, Tata established three of these lip treatments, each with their own identity. From True: a natural plump formal, Adored: a sweet rosy tint, and finally Fierce: a beautiful protector, you can choose the formula with the personality that best matches yours (or hoard all three like we do!). So be True, Adored, Fierce and most of all eco-chic beauties while you rock that plush pout!
Welcome to Eco-Chic Month:
Happy March Beauties! Okay, we know we’re a little late ringing in the new month, but trust us it’ll be worth it! We would like to welcome you to what we are calling our month of Eco-Chic-ness! All March long we will be getting ready for spring as we share our tips, tricks and faves towards putting our best face forwards and letting one’s natural beauty shine through. We’re going all-out in celebrating this lucky month by getting a wee bit festive and jumping into spring as we highlight our natural beauty and conserve that of our lovely mother earth!
So, we’ve decided what better way to shake off those monday blues and commence this green month then a nail polish with an eco-friendly finish? Us beauties know that the best way to start off the week is with a fresh new manicure! With just a fresh coat of your favorite polish, a girl can feel like she can take on the world! But we have to wonder, with nail polishes containing a slew of scientific words that sound anything but pretty, how harmful are these paints for not only us, but also the environment? But no need to fret beauties because natural nail polishes are on the rise and are a beautiful solution for your nails and the earth! Numerous polish brands have already begun ditching the harmful chemicals once contained in their nail varnishes and many more are establishing themselves on their use of solely natural and non-toxic ingredients. How incredible! Here are a list of our favorite brands that swear by natural, non-cruel and non-toxic ingredients that are all around eco-chic! Take a look at these awesome brands and our picks of their amazing colors that are perfect for spring! Tell us what you think of the natural nail polishes! Have you tried any, let us know!!!
It’s Shelly here! I’m back today with another drugstore beauty find! One of our favorite services offered at the boutique is the “false lash application”. Such an easy and fun way to dress up any makeup look. I have some good news! You don’t have to wait for a special occasion, you can try applying falsies at home! Of course, you’ll need a few items to get started. That’s where our drugstore find comes into play. My two favorite brands of false lashes is ANDREA or Ardell. I pick them up right at my local CVS. They cost about $5-10. They are available in individual styles and full strips. The individual clusters are available in different lengths as well, short and medium. Tip: the “demi-lash” or #53 styles are the most natural looking. You’ll also need the glue to apply the lashes. After trying countless formulas, I can confidently tell you that the DUO lash adhesive works the best. A new tube runs about $7 and lasts for several applications. DUO glue comes in a white and black formula. I prefer the darker glue but if you’re a beginner, you might want to try the white glue so you can see where you’re putting it. Don’t worry, they both dry clear! It takes a little bit of practice but I promise you’ll get the swing of it in no time! Now, go have some fun and show off those flirty lashes, beauties!
I know, its raining its pouring. This is a great day to cheer up with this beautiful Saltwater Farm Vineyard wedding full of purples, pinks and gentle green hues. My bride Josie was radiating and picked a perfect chic side chignon with a natural subtle makeup look. It was that kind of July day where there was just a gentle breeze to break up the heat and it just does not get better than that for a vineyard wedding. A great reminder that wedding season is about to begin in full swing and spring flowers are sure to bloom soon along with some more frequent sunny days. Thank you to photographer Anna Sawin for the gorgeous images! Xo, Jennie.
