I told you guys I have always been rotten at
applying make-up. I just never was taught the right way
when I was younger for my Grandmother didn't believe in
it and my mother wasn't all that much better. Sorry MOM,
I can't ever get past your blue and green phase! Plus since
she grew up with my Grandmother also it was the blind
leading the blind! Over the last few months I have been
learning a lot but there is always more to learn. One thing
I have been been paying attention to is Mineral Makeup
for it is not only incredible for its Purity it is more Vibrant
and luxurious on. With a good quality mineral make-up you
will enjoy that Hollywood POP that you always read about but can
never replicate at home without the team of artists the stars
have. The benefits of mineral make-up are numerous but
that star Quality is achieved by the fact it breathes with your
skin and doesn't clog the pores so instead of your skin
drinking it in it rides comfortably on top and radiates
just like you will when you wear it.
I also know since I have sensitive skin that it
is better for you and people with other skin conditions
such as Rorosacea, dryness, acne or other skin ailments
would benefit by using this as opposed to mass produced
make-ups that are chemical-based. Mineral make-up is
also super light and this makes it comfortable and does
not weigh your skin down. In fact it is so light you could
even sleep in it. The best part is it leaves your skin healthy
and the user has a natural aura that isn't painted on!
Orglamix offered to let me review some of her Eye
Shadows and I did a jig for I have really been wanted to
try some mineral make-up after I took the time to learn
of all its benefits. The shades I received were Buttercup,
Cashmere and Silk for when she asked what my preference
was I told her I am really in need of an "Idiots Guide" to
choosing the right colors to wear and let her pick for me.
I must say she did a fantastic job. All three shades are
earthy and pinkish and are perfect on my fair skin and for
once you can see my eye shadow and my eye color without
one pushing the other into obscurity. I felt as if I had nothing
on but looked spectacular. I even got a complement from
my son. Best of all "I feel Pretty!" and star have Quality. She
truly knows her stuff!
Orglamix offers a wide variety of eye colors and I mean
wide. They have 83 shades listed right now as well as the
fact you can customize your own shade. They also offer
face powders and blushes as well as Brushes! What I
liked best was the starter kits for some of the kits contain
everything a 40 year old rookie like me needs. Take
the Rosalie Collection for one, it has Foundation, shadow,
blush and glow. Everything you need to get you on your
feet and running. I also didn't get any special favors when
she helped me pick out the right shade for me for she also
is willing to help anyone with questions and there are
numerous places on the site that direct you to a link to
ask her anything on your mind to make your selections
everything you need them to be. You must be thinking
make-up this good is going to empty your wallet. I know
every time I hit the counter at Macy's I walk away confused,
I am delighted with my purchase and in tears at what I spent.
At Orglamix that isn't the case. The starter set I told you
about is under 20 bucks and a pot of eyeshadow is less
then 4. You just can't buy quality like that at such a great
price anywhere else!
