BB CUSHION COMPACT

Once in a few years an innovative product comes along that completely revolutionizes the makeup world. So you can imagine the frenzy that ensued in our office when our friends at Laneige sent us the world’s first ever foundation-forward Cushion Compact! Everything about it screams why didn’t anyone think of this before?! How many times have you wished your foundation was portable like a cream foundation pot but not such a heavy formula that leaves a thick residue on the side of your cell phone? Every day unfortunately. This new system allows you to simply tap the antimicrobial applicator puff against the patented air cushion (with over 800,000 air cells!) and pat it anywhere that needs a little extra love.

The 5-in-1 BB (super-thin) formula:

  • brightens with Melacrusher technology,
  • protects with Broad Spectrum SPF 50+,
  • hydrates skin with Optimal Mineral Water,
  • prevents shine and
  • gives long-lasting coverage.

Here’s how to make it your best friend too!

STEPS:

  1. Open the compact and remove the applicator puff. Lift open the lid cover just beneath it.
  2. Slide two fingers beneath the strap on the applicator puff and press it against the air cushion to load up a light layer of the BB foundation. The amazing thing you’ll notice with this formula is the amount of coverage you get from such a thin layer!
  3. Start under your eyes and press the sponge in a stippling motion as you move across the area. Stippling is always better than wiping, as it really presses it into the skin.
  4. Continue across your forehead as Angelique demonstrated above.
  5. Keep pressing along your cheek area. Load it back up with more product by tapping it against the cushion whenever needed.
  6. Stipple across your other cheek.
  7. Don’t forget your neck and chin!

Did you know that Laneige BB Cushion Compact is a global million seller and one is sold every 10 seconds?! And now you can get your own here stateside at Target here!

DIY BLUSH + BRONZER

Post + Photos by Amy Nadine, Graphic Design by Eunice Chun

If you’re like us here at TBD, you love a good DIY project! And nothing is prettier than adding a little color to our bronzer! It warms up the complexion like a fresh tan that you got an hour ago at the pool before it faded into a regular tan. You know what I mean? Anyway, you don’t have to buy one when you can make one with items you already have in your vanity. And why not take it a step further and make a really pretty one while you’re at it? Here’s how:  (more…)

DIY TOUCH UPS FOR THE PETITE CLUTCH

This little lifesaver is the brainchild of my lovely {and clever} client Emmy Rossum! Last Saturday I had the pleasure of doing her makeup for her Shameless panel at Comic Con, but I did it at 6:30am here in LA for her to leave at 8 and drive two hours to San Diego and attend the event until 5pm, without me there to help her with touch ups. Of course lipstick and blotting papers fit in her clutch, but not her foundation bottle or cream eye shadow. As I was trying to find a way to make it work, Emmy said “hold on!” and calmly found a contact lens storage case in her drawer. Brilliant! Here’s what followed that we can all easily do whenever we know we’ll need to touch up after a long day but don’t want to bring a big bag: (more…)

Don’t you just want to cry when you drop your brand new compact and the powder shatters into a million little pieces? But wait! Don’t throw it out and call your losses. You can absolutely put humpty dumpty back together again! And while you’re at it, grab your old cream shadow, blush or liner that has dried out, cracked or shrunk and bring it back to life too. Here’s how to do both: (more…)
