But I have a plan to transform myself in less than an hour from half-extinct mortal to supernatural goddess.

ANM Beauty Review: Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal post image

Every so often a beauty product will come along that blows you away and has you wondering how you ever could have lived without it. Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal was that product for me and if gorgeous, flawless skin is what you’re after, it will be for you too.

I was ecstatic when I received a sample of this wonder product since I’d been hearing nothing but rave reviews from the beauty sphere for some time but was too lazy to go out and give it a try on my own! I tore the package open and applied just a tab to some blemishes on my chin and on the persistent half moons under my eyes. I was blown away. All traces of imperfection were GONE. My face literally looked like it had been airbrushed.

Pre-Miracle Skin Transformer, I would have to commit about 15 minutes of applying primer then foundation then concealer, then powder to set, then more concealer for greater coverage. And even still, my skin never looked as naturally flawless as it did with just a teeny smidge of this product, and it got the job done in under 30 seconds to boot! [continue reading…]

Makeup Bag Essentials You Should Never Leave Home Without post image

The other day, something awful happened. I was on the L-train on my way into Manhattan from Brooklyn when I realized I was missing something very, very important. It wasn’t my phone (which I have left at home before, an occurrence that I considered a blessing because I hate that thing and any time I get away from it is happy time!), or my wallet (which I shamefully forgot once, arriving on a date money-less and homeless since my keys are attached to my wallet and my roommate was gone for the night leaving me locked). No, I forgot something even more essential than those essentials, my makeup bag.

This experience taught me a very valuable lesson on the importance of a cute and compact makeup case and how valuable it can be throughout the day.  While it took some time, I think I’ve finally perfected the art of the perfect makeup case. In the past, I would either pack too much or too little, making swaps, additions and substitutions in between until I could be like Goldielocks and get it to be just right.

These days, the contents of my makeup case rarely change, whether I’m heading out for a long day of running around, going on a date, to a fashion event or out for a night of fun with my girl friends.

Read on to see the essentials that made the cut. [continue reading…]
