PRIIA Cosmetics Launches New Colors for Spring/Summer 2013!

The warm weather is here and summer itself is just around the corner.  With that said, the trend for makeup is to "dare to bare" but still look polished.  Colors for this season are softer and have a more subtle approach as opposed to the daring and deep hues we find during the fall and winter months.

I'm please to announce a new collection of gorgeous colors by PRIIA Cosmetics.  They're perfect for this time of year when you still want to wear makeup but don't want to look overly "made-up".

Cherry-blossom-new (2)

 

Here's the latest blush color.  It's called Cherry Blossom.  It will add a perfect pop of whimsical pink to the apples of your cheeks!

Advanced Mineral Makeup Techniques For The LIPS

Welcome to Part 3 of my three part series called "The Fortune is in the Face". Todays lesson is all about using advanced mineral makeup techniques to enhance your lips to achieve the perfect pout. Enjoy!

LIPS:

The lip shape determines how to correct the shape of the lips using a lip liner pencil.  When in doubt, always use a lip-colored or neutral lip liner.

 

Always start with a fresh BLANK canvas!  Apply foundation and powder over the lips. Next, determine the lip shape and make any corrections if necessary.

 

Down-turned lips: Slightly round off the edges of the lips with liner.

 

Uneven lips: One lip is usually more full than the other.  Decide which lip you want to correct; make one more full or less full.

 

Flat lips: There is no ‘pucker’ to the mouth from a side profile angle.  Use lip-colored liner and light colored lipstick or light reflective gloss on the entire lip area.

 

Small/thin: Slightly overdraw the natural lip line and use a light colored lipstick or light reflective gloss on the entire lip area.  Avoid dark, matte colors.  It's NOT true that women over a certain age should avoid darker lip colors. It has more to do with the SIZE of your lips.

 

Large/full: Slightly under draw the lip line.  With full lips it’s OK to use deeper colors and matte or satin lip formulas.

 

*TIP:  To create a dramatic pucker, don’t fill in the center portion of the lips with liner. Apply lipstick or gloss as usual and then top off the center portion of the lips with a shimmer gloss.

 

*TIP:  Apply lipstick or lip gloss with a lip brush.  This helps the lip color last longer because a brush helps deposit color into the small indentations of the lips.

Rule of Thumb:  Always make sure the lips are exfoliated and hydrated properly!

In need of some great lippie products for achieving the perfect pout?  Look no further! Whether your a gloss gal or a lipstick lady, PRIIA Cosmetics has got you covered! Check out our About2Pout Natural Lip Gloss and our Pucker Upz Lip Infusion Natural Lipstick.  Your lips never had it so good!

Oh For the Love of Shea…Butter That Is!

Shea Butter Shea butter is a well-known cosmetic and skin care ingredient that comes from the nuts of the African karite tree (also known as the shea tree).

This amazing ingredient is chock full of vitamins like A, E, and F and it has unparalled moisturizing and healing properties.  For thousands of years, shea butter has been used to treat a variety of skin ailments and conditions such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis.  It's also been used to fortify the skin, fade scars, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation.  It also offers a natural SPF protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.  Believe it or not, shea butter has also been reported to help with sinus problems!

Shea butter has a low melting point which makes it penetrate into the skin quickly upon contact and doesn't leave a greasy residue behind.  Only a silky feeling is left on the skin after application.  To this day, shea butter remains one of the world's most effective and potent cosmetic ingredients.

At PRIIA Cosmetics, you can find luxurious shea butter in the following products: About 2 Pout Natural Lip Gloss, Pucker Upz Lip Infusions, Lip Linez Natural Lip Liners and Eye Linez Natural Eye Liners.

Give these products a try to today.  Your eyes and lips never had it sooooo good!Tn__MG_0854 ABOUT2POUT GROUP

Interesting Shea Butter Fact: It takes 15 to 30 years for the shea tree to bear high quality nuts in order to later obtain the yellowish-colored fatty extract.

How To Have Perfect Holiday Party Lips!

The holidays are here and it's party time!  Here are some simple tips to achieve and keep the perfect holiday pout…

The color trends this year are all about reds, plums and burgundy and are NOT overdone with liner or too much gloss.  Instead, keep a soft-edge look because it's more current and fresh.  Even though I still advocate the use of a lip liner all the time, be sure to blend it well for this season's look- NO TELL-TALE HARSH LINES PLEASE.

When applying lipstick, use a lip brush instead of applying it straight from the tube.  A lip brush helps to distribute the product better on the lips making the application last longer.

Next, blot the lips lightly and then apply a sheer gloss.  Since matte lips are out this season, choose a gloss that has some shimmer to it to really highlight the lips.  Shimmer glosses also give the appearance of fuller lips.

Looking for some fantastic lip products that will give you a sexy pout while keeping your lips soft and moisturized at the same time?  Consider PRIIA Cosmetics About2Pout Natural Lip Gloss and Pucker Upz Lip Infusions.  Both products have inexpensive sample sizes available.  Here are some hot holiday color suggestions for you as well:  Brazen Raisin, Purity, Sangria, Reddy Set Red, Cha-Cha Cherry, Plumb Crazy and Dragon Fruit.

Pink Lips Here's to sexy lips this holiday season!  Mmmmwwwaaaah!

Beauty Quick Tip: A New Use For Lip Balms You Didn’t Love

I'll admit it- I am a lip balm/lip gloss addict.  I have no shame in saying so.  However, as a lippie-productFingers with gloss junkie, I've come across a few (even made a few) balms/glosses that just didn't live up to my personal standard.

In the past, I'd simply discard the product by trying to make a two-pointer in the trash can.  Not anymore!  I'm saving these babies and using them as cuticle moisturizers.  Why spend more moola on a separate cuticle product for my nails when I can use the lip balm I was about to dump???  Since they were meant to keep your lips soft and kissable, go ahead and use them to keep your cuticles smooth and moisturized.  I now keep some spare balms stashed in my purse to apply on the go and on my nightstand to apply before bed.  Quick, easy and convenient.

So, check your makeup bags ladies.  If you've got any uncolored lip balms/glosses that you were going to toss for whatever reason, save them for a treat for your cuticles!  Your nail beds will thank you. 😉
