7 Ways to Master Bohemian Beauty

 

The calendar may still say February, but with Spring just around the corner it’s time to take a closer look at some of our favorite trends for Spring. We are feeling inspired by the bare shoulders, flowing fabric, and effortless chic appearance of the Spring 2016 Bohemian trend.  Here is a roundup of a few of our favorite ways to incorporate bohemian style into your everyday outfits.

Off the shoulder blouses are everywhere this Spring and this one would be so cute with cut-off shorts. Just don’t forget the sunscreen on your shoulders and maybe dust a little Radiance for an extra glow.

5 Uses for Mineralogie’s Skin Spritz

You have probably heard about one of our top selling products Mineralogie’s Skin Spritz, but you may not have any idea how versatile it is. We truly believe it is a must have for any makeup kit belonging to a professional makeup artist or an individual. Keep reading for some helpful tips on how to put this workhorse product to good use.

ADD HYDRATION

Do you have dry skin? Who doesn’t right now? Unless you are lucky enough to be on a tropical vacation, you are experiencing cold, dry,  and did I say cold climate conditions! Harsh weather can wreak havoc on your complexion, and result in dehydrated, tight, agitated skin. The easiest way to combat this is with a couple of quick spritzes of Mineralogie’s Skin Spritz infused with Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Sandlewood, Rosemary and a host of other intoxicating scents. Its like a spa in a bottle, and an instant refresher for dry, thirsty skin.

 

INTENSIFY PIGMENTS

If you want to step up an eye shadow a notch or two, try spritzing your brush first with the Skin Spritz and then picking up pigments. They will go on more vibrant and even allow you to use an eye shadow easily as a liner.

 

SETTING SPRAY

That’s right. As soon as you finish applying your makeup, spritz the face with one or two pumps (holding the bottle back a few inches so that it sprays on your face evenly). It instantly sets your makeup to make it last longer, and can be used later in the day to revive makeup after wearing it for awhile. This is especially helpful with more mature skin.

 

AROMATHERAPY

If you find yourself sitting in a cubicle under fluorescent lighting for 8 hours a day, at one time or another you will probably be wishing for an escape. We can’t send you on a vacation, but if you can find 30 seconds to close your eyes, take a deep cleansing breath and spray the skin spritz in the air around your face, you can regain focus and alertness. It goes a long way to temporarily relieve stress and increase positivity. For more ways to keep your sanity while working check out this post.

 

FIRST AID FOR HAIR

Dry, cold Winter weather can wreak havoc on our hair. In a pinch, it helps to spray a little skin spritz on your fingers and smoother down fly aways (did someone say static electricity?) to make hair behave. I have also been known to spray it on my daughter’s curls and scrunching to for a mid day refresh.

5 Simple Makeup Tips for Valentine’s Day: Get the Look and Win a Giveaway

Valentine’s Day is is upon us and who couldn’t use a few simple tips and tricks to make the most of your look for Valentine’s Day or any date night? We have compiled 5 simple tips to maximize the impact of your Valentine’s (or any date night look) and follow along until the end for a fabulous giveaway from Mineralogie.

 

PRIME

Face primer may not be a part of your every day makeup routine, but for special occasions it can be an essential step. Mineralogie’s Face Primer works to smooth and even out skin tone prior to foundation application, all the while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. Foundation glides so smoothly over the skin if you have taken the time to prep the skin with Face Primer.

GET GLOWING

Highlight cheekbones, down center of nose to add a youthful glow to the skin and the cupid’s bow to emphasize lips and give them a pouty look. Put a touch of highlight in the inner corner of the eyes to brighten.  I recommend the shade Tease from our Highlight and Contour Duo. Apply with a synthetic brush like the Mineralogie Foundation Blending Brush before applying foundation. For more information on highlighting and contouring check out this post.

LASHES

Don’t be intimidated by false eyelashes. If you are a false eyelash newbie check this post out for more information. Bold lashes have big impact on your overall finish, and big eye lashes are a huge trend this year. When you curl your lashes, curl at the base, holding for 5-10 seconds and then curl the lashes again half way down the shaft. This way you are lifting AND curling for double the impact. Finish with our favorite new mascara!

LUSCIOUS LIPS

Reach for a matte shade because it will be more long wearing, and layer lip liner underneath to extend wear time and overdraw lips slightly. Allow time to exfoliate your lips before applying any color because matte shades can highlight the appearance of dry lips. If you don’t have a product made for lip exfoliation just make a paste of honey and sugar and gently rub on your lips and rinse off.

With a fluffy brush sweep Radiance powder over the shoulders and décolletage. Glowing skin is the perfect complement to any of these date night outfits!
