Benefits of Roses-

1. Anti-inflammatory: While we may think of roses for their iconic deep red color, rose oils can actually help reduce swollen spots or redness on your skin. Its calming properties can also help sooth rosecea and eczema.

2. Antioxidants: Rose contains high amounts of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. This important vitamin can help protect skin cells from damage, such as from staying out in the sun too long. Some evidence even suggests that rose water can help prevent sunburn.

3. Moisturizing: The natural oils found in roses help lock moisture into the skin, keeping skin feeling smooth. Rose is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin because the sugars in its petals create a soothing feeling.

4. Toning: As a natural astringent, rose helps tighten pores and restore suppleness for a glowy complexion. Unlike conventional alcohol-based toners, rose leaves skin feeling smooth, not dried out.

You can even create a calming face mask from rose petals.

Simply soak 8 petals in 3-4 tablespoons of water for 2-3 hours.

Then mash the petals into the water and add 3 tablespoons of honey.

Mix well, and apply to entire face. Leave on for 15-30 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

New Eye Shadows from Pin Up Cosmetics

As I was putting together gift bag items for The Wedding Salon Bridal Trade Show taking place in NY on November 14th 2011. I had so many ideas going through my head such as winter wedding, retro wedding and green wedding.

It also reminded me of the beautiful light emerald green 1950’s slip I used to have. It was adorned with beautiful cream lace so pretty I had to wear it as a dress, it was to pretty to not show off. With all that said today my thoughts inspired me to make two beautiful vegan mineral eye shadows that happily complement one another and are a complement to all skin tones.

PS: Don’t forget about our buy one get one free offer. Simply pick your favorite single eye shadow or eye shadow duo and receive a complementary single eye shadow of your choice. Just send us an email after you’ve placed your order and let us know what eye shadow you would like.

Enjoy!


Zooey Deschanel and Thandie Newton- Retro Inspired Beauty

[slideshow]
I absolutely adore Zooey Deschanel and Thandie Newton’s gorgeous makeup! To create this look it’s all about playing up your eyes. This everyday 60’s mod look starts with flawless skin. So drink plenty of H2O!
Face Start by applying a moisturizer, and your favorite primer. For a natural look, use a minimal to medium coverage foundation such as Pin Up Cosmetics Mineral Foundation. Set with Pin Up Cosmetics Mineral Veil.
Cheeks For a little incandescent pick-me-up? Dust a little Pin Up Cosmetics Glamour over cheeks and blend with Blushing Betty’s Desire for a pop of pink. This will give you an ethereal soft-focus look.

Eyes Then, it's time to put all the focus on the eyes. Start with a nude shadow as a base, like Pin Up’s Starlet Duo (note: use only the light color in the duo as your base) Apply Starlet all over your eye lid. Next taking a slightly damp liner brush layer Pin Up’s mineral eye shadow in Raven along the lash line, winging it out to the sides, creating a soft cat-eye style. Using a loose mineral shadow to do this instead of a harsher, sharper eyeliner line is the key to the soft, girly look.

Note: Try to only line from the outer corner to the middle of the lower lash line, to give the eye a rounder look.

Finally, we come to the key to Zooey's and Thandie’s look: those beautiful long and luxe eyelashes. Accent your lashes with false half eyelashes. Half lashes will enhance your look not create a new one. They are shorter than a typical strip false eyelashes and are used on the outer corners of the eyes for a 60‘s mod look. Curl and apply mascara to finish your look.

Lips You can’t go wrong with Pin Up Cosmetics creamy lip balms in Cupcake or Sweetheart.
