BRING A LITTLE BIT OF GLAM & FUN TO YOUR DAILY MAKEUP ROUTINE WITH THESE 4 EASY TIPS:

ADD A LITTLE GLITZ & FUN!?...

I would definitely say that as full-time mother and student with a 40 hr.-a-week job, glitz and glamour are things that I might miss out on ;) Even though it's not at the top of my list these days, it is nice to have a little fun with my beauty routine every now and then! I've found that there are some super easy and inexpensive ways to do this over the years and I thought it would be some great advice to share with all of you :) Check out my 5 simple tips below:


TRY THESE SIMPLE 4 TIPS FOR A LITTLE ADDED GLAM & A TWIST OF FUN:

1. I love adding a bit of fun with some non-alcoholic spritzer or sparkling wine in a pretty glass, putting within reach, and then sipping on while I'm getting ready/putting on makeup! Valentina Paris [just under $30 for 2] makes some gorgeous hand-painted wine glasses that I recently got the chance to review and I LOVE them :) [Make sure to check out my BONUS review below my tips! ]

2. Create a relaxing atmosphere that brings some glam along with it- place a room diffuser near and go for scents like: Apple, Pumpkin, Vanilla, or another seasonal choice. This always puts me in a nice mood and adding a little bit of light and easy dance music as an extra touch can really make your beauty routine fun :)

You won't have to spend a lot of cash one one either- you can easily make your own by: picking a fav empty perfume/pretty bottle and adding some inexpensive diffuser reeds [you can score these at most hobby & craft stores]! The best oils are "essential oils" and you won't have to spend a lot of money on this either- a small bottle will even lend quite a bit since their pure form needs to be diluted with carrier oil for example.

3. Venture out a bit with a new product like: a unique eye color, liner, or by adding a little shine to your eyes with some glitter or metallic shadow and/or mascara! Looking for one to try? NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado- 24 karat gold [only $10!] is the perfect shadow AND liner that's all-in-one! An excellent shadow choice: ARDENCY INN MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments shadow in Peacock is a good pick for the season- and a tad of fun too ;)

4. Don't want to add all the color and seeking a more subtle approach?! No worries! You still can ;) Throw in a light & shimmery moisturizer, BB cream, or skin perfector to your beauty regimen! One of my FAV's- BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal [travel size: $19], is an easy way to achieve a pretty luminosity without overdoing it. The effect is prismatic and based on the light present, which makes for a fun and beautiful result!

BONUS PRODUCT REVIEW:

 

Valentina Paris

Hand-painted Wine Glass

[set of 2]

$19.20

These wine glasses are even prettier in person and I was really surprised at the quality and size at such an affordable price of about $30 for a set of 2! This product would make an excellent, inexpensive house-warming, anniversary, or wedding gift that most anyone could appreciate.

If you don't drink, you could use them as I sometimes do for storage of pretty jewelry or makeup- or try pouring in some non-alcoholic spritzer for some fun :) The bases are made well so there are no issues with worrying about the glass easily tipping over and breaking or spilling.

As for the quality of the glass- it's excellently crafted and fairly thick as far as wine glasses go. Each glass is uniquely hand-crafted and painted- that's an added bonus for me as it gives each one a character all its own. If you've been seeking the perfect gift for a friend, loved-one, or yourself- these wine glasses from Valentina Paris are the way to go.
