THE MOST HARMONIOUS BLUSH SHADE FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

It’s a free world and I love that we can all wear any blush shade we are in the mood to wear each day! But certain shades are more harmonious on some skin tones than on others. Why does it matter? Because when you find your perfect blush shade, no matter what eye shadow or lip color you choose, the blush becomes secondary and more of a natural flush, like you’re blushing. So here’s a loose guideline in finding your blush bestie! **We know that many of us fall in between the 6 skin tone shades listed above, but as much as it kills us, we just can’t include all 5,682 different variations in skin tones…  But please don’t fret, just find the ones that you fall in between and decide if you have more of the cooler or warmer undertone version of the two tones. For a refresher course in undertones, revisit my lesson from last year by clicking here. (more…)

By now you know we love pink hair. We do it often around here. But… most people can’t get away with having pink hair at work or school. Well, there’s a new favorite in town. This Davines Alchemic “Red” color conditioner turns medium to light hair into a temporary pale pink dream! (more…)

EARTH DAY: BEAUTY FOR A CAUSE

post by amy nadine, graphic design by eunice chun

We here at TBD are big supporters of Earth Day on April 22nd and try to do as much as we can to leave this planet as beautiful as we found it. This year we wanted to do something special for our friends around the world who don’t have access to clean water, because every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. So we collaborated with Tarte, one of our favorite green + eco-friendly cosmetic lines, to create a limited edition collection of our favorite four products and for every kit sold, Tarte will donate 20% of the proceeds to winetowater.org. The organization helps bring clean water to 9 countries that desperately need it through building wells, filters and irrigation systems. We couldn’t be more thrilled! Each Down to Earth Kit comes in an eco-chic quilted bag and includes:

  • a full size LipSurgence™ lip tint in enchanted (the prettiest rose shade that Amy Nadine even wore on her wedding day!)
  • a gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara (will absolutely become your favorite mascara)
  • an Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful (a warm peach that gives every skin tone a glowing flush)
  • multiplEYE™ lash-enhancing liquid liner (formulated with a lash-growing serum so every time you trace it along your lash line, you’re helping grow lashes!)

We can’t think of much better than treating your face to synthetic-free gorgeousness while donating to a great charity! Click here to grab your limited-edition Down To Earth Kit while supplies last and have a wonderful Earth Day!

Retails for $49.00 (a $90 value if 4 items purchased separately). 20% of proceeds donated to winetowater.org.

**Tarte has added a contest to give a kit to one lucky reader! Click here by April 15, 2012 at 11:59pm EST and good luck! CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED, and the lucky winner is…  Jackie S. from Essex Junction, VT! Congrats Jackie!
