Pamper yourself with sensitive skin lotions and natural body butters
I am a huge fan of discovering makeup that is unknown, or makeup that is a hidden gem among the big names. Strolling through my CVS yesterday afternoon, I stumbled upon a palette from The Color Workshop, called “Essential Eyes.” The palette holds nine eyeshadow shades in it, and since it was so inexpensive, and hidden in a display, I decided to try it out. Being pleasantly surprised by the pigmentation, I came up with a dramatic blue eye look with hints of purple in it. The end result reminded me of the blue and purple portion of a peacock feather, hence the name. To see the palette I used, as well as how to achieve this look,
First, pat down the light sky-blue shade over your entire eyelid, focusing especially on the inner corners. Also apply this shade lightly to the inner corner of your bottom lash line to open up your eye.
Second, lightly pat down the medium blue shade (2nd row, middle) over your eyelid, stopping at the crease. The idea is to brighten and intensify the blue shade on the eyelid, but not overpower the light sky-blue we just applied over the entire eyelid.
Third, apply the dark purplish-blue (last row, last shade) to the outer third of your eye and into the crease slightly, blending well. Also, apply this shade on your entire lower lash line, except for the inner lower lash area, where the light sky-blue shade should be.
Fourth, apply a black eyeliner to your lower waterline. Also, apply black liquid or gel eyeliner to your upper lash line to intensify the entire look.
Last, curl your eyelashes and apply your favorite mascara. I applied false eyelashes to intensify and thicken my lash line. This step is, of course, optional.
Viola! Royal Peacock Eyes. Wow with gorgeous, dramatic shades of blue and purple.
For my lips, I used Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal Sun in 472 Island Guava .
For my cheeks, I used MAC’s “Sunbasque, ” blush, a bronze-brown, neutral blush.
It is my understanding that The Color Workshop is a makeup brand sold in various drugstores, as well as major retailers such as Walmart. I have heard great feedback from the beauty community regarding their products, especially their eyeshadow. It was difficult for me to find any further information about this brand online, such as a website, or a specific area where you can purchase their products. I personally purchased my palette from CVS for $3.99. If you are interested in purchasing this palette, I would check your local CVS or Walmart to see if they carry this brand. The pigmentation and wear is definitely worth the price, and I personally feel this is a great hidden gem in the beauty industry.

If we are to select any genre of painting that has got favour and protest in equal proportion, surely it would be the art of figurative painting. Especially the paintings of women in their natural beauty have remained the cause of concern for the society, the artists and the viewers.
From the time we cannot trace out, artists have tried adoring the beauty embedded in human body. May it be the paintings of Venus, the Goddess of love, may it be carvings on the walls of temples at Khajuraho India, or may it be the statues of marbles from ancient Roman period: the artists are equally fascinated by the natural beauty of human figure.
Getting much praise and attention of the art lovers of these artworks is obvious. But the protest mainly has come form the so called guards of culture. It is because they have mixed two different phenomenons: the state of a person that is in the state of ‘cloteh-less-ness’ and the state of the person who is just in his or her natural beauty.
It is doubtless that a person would feel uncomfortable in a state of cloth-less situation; and he or she would feel some sort of defencelessness, too. But when a person, a man or a woman, is modelling for figurative painting, he or she is not merely a cloth-less body. Here the model is neither defenceless nor feeling any shame or guilt; the person is well-balanced and feels proud of being so beautifully depicted in a natural pose.
If we look at ‘The Bather of Valpencon’ painting by the master artist ingress we can see the difference discussed above. Were we to evaluate the real natural beauty of a female, this painting is one of the best example.

ADORING FEMALE NATURAL BEAUTY
You may remember Beauty Gala’s review of Maybelline’s “Blue Blowout” palette. I typically like to do a tutorial and look with each makeup palette that I swatch and rave about, not only to give you an idea of what you can do with the palette, but also so you can see exactly what the colors look like on the actual eye. Blue eyeshadow looks are incredible for our brown and hazel eyed beauties because they really make your eye color stand out. I am not usually one to wear blue eyeshadow because I don’t feel it best suits my eye color (blue-green), but I definitely enjoy playing around from time to time. To see how to achieve this look,
- Apply a primer to your eyelids. This step is especially important when using vibrant, vivid shades like the ones in this palette.
- Apply the matte baby blue (left color) to the inner half of your eyelids, stopping at the crease. Use a good brush to pack down this color, and be sure to stop at the crease, or even slightly before. Also, stop this shade halfway across your eyelid, about where the middle of your pupil is if you were looking straight forward.
- Apply the sparkling periwinkle (right color) to the outer half of your eyelids, stopping at the crease. Again, pack this shade down well, and blend it with the baby blue shade on the halfway point of your eyelid where they meet. Doing this will create a gradient, blended effect. You may need to go back and forth, reapplying the colors a couple of times to get a nice blended look.
- Apply the darkest blue to your crease. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied this shade to the crease of my eye only. I did not apply this to the outer corner of my eye, or take it very far towards my nose. I simply used this color to create a gradient and definition in the crease. Blend out well.
- Apply the softest pastel blue (bottom color) to the inner corners of your eyes, as well as your brow bone. This will open up your eyes and bring everything together.
- Apply the shimmer (top color) over your entire eyelid, patting it down. This shimmer has a clear base, so it will only put down sparkle and shimmer to your green lids.
- Apply the baby blue and periwinkle blue shades to your lower lash line. This step is optional, but I feel like it helps tie the look together, and bring out your eyes even more.
- Line your lower waterline, and apply mascara. The finishing touches! If you’d like to line your upper lash line, or apply lashes, it will also make the look pop.
The sparkle in these palettes really ties the entire look together making it look very pigmented, yet soft at the same time.

Face of the Day Lookbook: MAC “Jealousy Wakes,” Eyeshadow, MAC “My Paradise” Cheek Powder, & MAC “Evolution Revolution” Lipglass
I had several people ask to see what MAC “My Paradise” Cheek Powder looks like on my actual cheeks against my complexion, so rather than just swatch it for a post, I decided to wear it today along with my new MAC Bloggers’ Obsession goodies. This was just a look for going out during the day on a Saturday to lunch with my husband, and then shopping. I adore the way peach cheeks and lips look with green eyeshadow so I decided to pair Jealousy Wakes with Evolution Revolution lipglass from the Bloggers’ Obsession Collection and My Paradise cheek powder from Surf, Baby!
On my eyes I patted down “Jealousy Wakes” across my entire eyelid, and popped “All That Glitters” MAC eyeshadow into the inner corners. I deepened the crease and outer corner up a bit with a matte black for some extra definition. And yes, I have mascara smeared underneath my eye a bit…it has been so hot here that I have had trouble keeping makeup on my face and eyes, even with the best primer’s!
I also swept the matte black I used lightly under my lower lash line, and then lined my lower waterline with my favorite flesh colored pencil, Stila’s Kajal Eyeliner in “Topaz.”
I really love “Jealousy Wakes,” for being such a true emerald green. I also love it because a lot of times when I wear green eyeshadow, it ends up making my blue-green eyes look very red and bloodshot after a few hours of wear. With this shade, my eyes didn’t look at all red, even after wearing it all day long.
On my cheeks, I am wearing MAC’s “My Paradise” cheek powder from Surf, Baby! It gives a light peachy gold sheen to the apples of my cheeks. On my lips, I used “Evolution Revolution” from the new Bloggers’ Obsession Collection. Since the eyes are a bit heavy in color, I left the cheeks and lips peachy and somewhat nude.
And…since everyone enjoys a little self-deprecation, I figured I had to post this one. I was trying to take a photograph of the blush color, and the flash popped off insanely bright. What you see below is the result…
And that is my “Face of the Day” for today!

Covergirl Tru Blend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation : Review – The Best Drugstore Powder Foundation, Yet.
The title says it all.
I’ve never had any luck finding a good powder foundation from the drugstore. So, I am over the moon about finally finding one that exceeds all my expectations !
Shade & Formula
The Covergirl Tru Blend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation in 04 – Soft Honey is a near perfect match for my NC 40 skin tone. It looks a lot darker in the compact but its the glue to bringing together my dark chin with the rest of face which a couple of shades lighter.
This is a sheer to light foundation – not something that gives a whole lot coverage. If you are looking to hide blemishes or acne scars this alone may not be enough. This over a liquid or creme foundation will work better.
I am tinted moisturizer kinda girl so all I want from a powder foundation is to
- help even skin tone
- be light weight
- keep me looking fresh all day long.
I get all this and more !
Lookin Clean & Fresh, Man !
I wore the foundation this past weekend over my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and got complimented ( from a boy, no less !) on how clean my face looked. It must have been good right coz we all know boys never notice anything.
If you have uneven skin tone and had a bout of dry skin – clean sounds mega fantastic to your ears . After almost 3 hours of wearing I still had a friend tell me that she wished she looked as fresh as I did. And then I told her I was testing a new foundation. Everybody gave huge points ! And I do too.
I wear all my powder foundation over a primer so they spread well. But this one does great over just a moisturizer. Even in Texan 100 degree weather I looked great for at least four – five hours. At the end of it I did a mini touch up with my Cover Fx Kabuki Brush (the best). The brush that comes with the product is useless.
The Covergirl Tru Blend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation can be found at all drugstores and Walmart for $10.11.
