Stuff We Love! YSL BabyDoll Mascara

I am officially addicted to BabyDoll mascara from YSL. I tore through my sample tube, then my full sized tube, and am now in tears since I've used all that up. I'm off to Saks asap to restock, but why am I in love with this beauty product. Well, it makes my lashes look amazing! The gel based mascara doesn't make my lashed brittle. I feel like I can layer it up and not ever get that spider look. Not to mention the wand has the teeny tiniest brush I've ever seen, which allows it to coat EVERY lash. You get a dramatic eyelash look without the headache of trying to don falsies. Don't believe me? Head over to your nearest department store and ask for a sample tube to take home. Trust me, you'll go back for the full priced tube and it will be worth every penny. 

If you're in the St. Louis area, pop into Saks at Frontenac Plaza and ask for Camille. Tell her COVERINGS magazine sent you ;)

Beauty Trend: Nude Lipstick

Nude Lipstick Makeup Trend

Some trends make us happy...others not so much. But, we are an office divided in regards to the Nude-Lipstick trend. I'm sorry, I'm rockin' red or berry lips till the rapture. But for those of you who like a natural-lip look, you're sure to love the nude-lip makeup look that is showing up all over the red carpet.

Check out this look on the red carpet and see how to get the look below.

Be Beautiful

You can be beautiful all day, everyday! On a tight budget. There is nothing that lifts your emotions like getting a compliment on how you look. And most times people are referring to your face. There is really not a lot to it. Just learn the rules, be consistent and find your own signature look. Retailers need to sell a lot of product, so too many beauty advisors will say you need to buy everything but the kitchen sink. Well maybe that, too!
This is what I find works for most of us.

RULE #1. Invest the biggest part of your cosmetics budget on skincare. Period. What you really need is a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Period. TIP: Moist, glowing skin gives a youthful healthy appearance. You save money because often foundations and powders are not needed.

RULE #2: Lipcolor. Experiment to find the right color and texture. Nuetrals are over rated. Have fun and let your lips speak for you. Choose one with a lip conditioner if needed. TIP: This little baby is your number one tool. Why? The right color on the lips will make your eye's look fabulous and brighten your whole face, with or without make up!

RULE #3: Use 1 or all of the only three you really need to pull off a look. They are Lipcolor, Black Eyeliner, and Foundation. TIP: Some foundations can double as a concealer. Sometimes concealers hide your true natural beauty. Use them sparingly or not at all. You want people to see our beauty, not your make up.
