Tip of the Day-Wear Your Lipstick's TRUE Color

According to makeup artist and Mark Cosmetic Expert, Anthea King, if you really like the way lipstick looks in a tube, prime your lips with a dab of foundation before applying. It turns your lips into a bare canvas and the color appears more true.   Thanks to Anthea King and the In Style Fall 2009 Makeover Issue! We'll hear more about Anthea King's Fall makeup picks in my upcoming interview with her. Coming Soon!

Boxed Beauty Kits

I know it seems like I'm on a Sephora binge with all the accolades they've received from me lately but I feel like it's my civic duty to a) vote and b) tell you when I find something deliciously fabulous that gets me kid in a candy store excited.

So here's another way they're making our lives easier and more fun: Boxed Kits of customer favorite products. Each kit has travel size versions of different skin and beauty products for your lips, eyes, skin and face. Some of my favorite products are featured in each set such as Duwop Private Red (in the Lip Service Kit), Guerlain Powder Pearls for the Face bronzer (in the Glitz & Glam Shimmer and Shine Kit) and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (in the Radiant Skin Regimen Kit).

This sounds like the perfect little holiday stocking stuffer (hint, hint). Since I'm such a beauty junkie, the brand variety is enticing and lets be honest I'm not sure I'd be able to afford the regular size version of some of these fine products! Take a look at all the miniature sets here: Sephora Favorites
