Make it a ‘beauty’ call!

I have Friday on the brain today.

On Friday, Donna gave some tips on how to have soft lips in the cold winter months. I want to share a couple of makeup tips so you’ll look positively radiant even when you’re bundled up like a snow bunny.

1-get lips that stand out-I have had a crush on this fusion beauty blingfusion lip plumper for a while now. How could you not want a lip gloss that is as glitzy as you are on a Friday night?


I love the pigment of Fusion Beauty’s lip glosses-the pigment is really beautiful (not sheer like most lip gloss) BONUS: they’re not sticky, so you won’t get that glue-trap feeling that you get from some other lip plumpers. This particular shade also makes your teeth look whiter.

2-glow from head to toe-laboratoire remède’s soft focusing lotion is a fan and makeup artist favorite. It’s a light-diffusing liquid that adds a subtle glow from head to toe without looking glittery. You can layer on alone, or mix with foundation. This product is every bride’s best friend. If you are getting married, this must be in your makeup tool box for the big day.

My 2 favorite ways to wear it:

For Legs: I blend Soft Focusing lotion with lemon + sage body butter and put it onto my legs. The light-diffusing powders catch the light and instantly draw your eye to the middle of the leg, which makes you look longer and leaner. I’m only 5’1″ so I need all the help I can get looking a little taller.

For Decolette: apply from collarbone to cleavage to illuminate your skin and give a subtle, sexy glow. How low your top goes is up to you, but your skin will look smooth and positively radiant.

Soft Focusing Lotion photographs beautifully, so feel free to wear it in the corners of your eyes to brighten dark circles or over your foundation. A little goes a long way and the tube dispenses the liquid quickly, so don’t get excited with the bottle!

3. Take your makeup from day to night in a flash-Tarte makes the best palettes. Tarte Eye Courure Day-To-Night Palette is purse-friendly and has TEN eye shadows to get you from the office to the party in no time. Plus, the formulas are bursting with Tarte’s Skinvigorating™ ingredients (mineral pigments, tourmaline, vitamin E and coconut oil are just a few), and are free of additives like parabens, sulfate and synthetic dyes. Maureen Kelly, if you read this, I love you! You are the best thing to happen to makeup since the eyelash curler.

Is it Friday yet? I’m ready for a night on the town!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
