BeautyTalk: Fall 2013 Major Makeup Trends!

Hey guys, to end our segment on fall trend reports I'm talking makeup today. What was spotted on the major runways from top fashion designers who work closely with top beauty gurus is now resumed here for you: 1. The Cat-Eye: oh but of course it had to show it's grace! My all time favorite staple in makeup is now coming out in a variety of ways. Bold, smoked out, just lined on the crease, colored (think purples, wine hued, earthy colors) and even full on glittered! It's about time to learn this move, whether you are shy and like just a bit of liner or if you are completely unafraid and love to experiment, there's a look for you this season.

BeautyTalk: Celeb facialists dish on the secrets ;)

I came across this article from Glamour magazine and thought wow these are precious little secrets! I knew about a couple of them but the rest was news to me so I wanted to share them with you ;) **I'm not going to give their backgrounds or which celebs they take care of but instead I'll jump right into the home tips! The Holistic Healer (Terri Lawton): Lawton believes keeping your body's pH balance at about seven flatters skin. Her advice: Start the day with Lemon in warm water; at meals combine any food low in pH (most proteins) with a food high in pH (most veggies). Her tip for puffy eyes: Strawberry jam! "leave it on for 15 min and you'll actually feel the fluids drain" She also loves Biologique Recherche Creme Contour…

BeautyTalk: Beauty Boxes Exposed!

   I promised this post last week and things got crazy, so here it is a bit late but full of fun goodies and very much informative ;)   I found this article on Instyle magazine and thought it was pretty cool to discover what's behind the beauty boxes so many girls talk about. For that reason I thought my readers could benefit from the info as much as I did.   A beauty box is a box filled with mostly sample sizes of products that are brand new on the market  or somewhat new that you receive through mail every month or once every three months depending on the service you signed up for. There are several options on the market, and you can sign up online. Some companies have a standard box for everyone…

BeautyTalk: Drew Barrymore’s Flower Line

   Last week (following my manager/friend advice to blog about this) I purchased a few products from Drew Barrymore's makeup line Flower sold exclusively at Walmart stores. The whole line is "Made in USA", never tested on animals and politically correct I'm sure it will definitely attract a crowd.   So I bought their BB cream, lip liner, nail polish, eye liner, brow liner, mascara and the plumping, moisturizer (white package) lipstick. Here is my verdict:-BB cream ( I got the bb3 color) $12.98, not worth it. That was a dark mud color (grayish almost), very dense and hard to spread on the face, my foundation brush had to be washed three times (no kidding) to get rid of all the residue from it. It does have great coverage but it looks like you…

BeautyTalk: Fab beauty trends for spring 2013!

   This is my first official beauty talk post. Aside from my youtube videos (which I'd love for you to subscribe! Chanel: Karina Style Diaries) I usually talk rather quickly about certain products and ways to do your makeup, this is a bit more in depth of what's happening this season when it comes to your hair, skin, nails and everything else we typically use to enhance our beautiful selves!   So after my research I narrowed down the spring trends to 7 most relevant ones and here they are:1. Hair Bun: I guess it's time for the high up bun to go down a few inches, more precisely to the side even though the messy bun it's still an option we're seeing a lot more neatness going on when it comes to hair styles…

ShopLocal: CosBar your beauty destination in the Rocky Mountains!

   Buying your goods from the the local shops is a way to keep them alive and going, besides the support of your community. That being said I know that's not always possible, maybe they don't have certain products or the shop really sucks... ouch!    So when I found this awesome beauty shop in the heart of the Vail Village I thought WOW I have access to all of this right here and didn't even know! So I felt the need to blog about such a place and let everyone know you have a beauty shop destination while on vacation!!!   I went in looking for an illuminator or highlighter and found a great little product from Chanel that is neither one of those but works just like one! Let me explain, it's the…
