B.A.D. Girl Beauty Review: The NEW Starter Kit by Jane Iredale

I was really excited to try the NEW starter kit from Jane Iredale because her line focuses on creating makeup with actual skincare benefits.  Products are made using high quality ingredients with no parabens, high testing standards and are always cruelty free. Here are my thoughts on the kit! Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener This primer helped even my skin tone to eliminate redness and the appearance of pores while also giving my skin a subtle glow, which I love! Pure Pressed Base & Amazing Base SPF 20 Broad Spectrum -Medium These multi-tasking foundations provide 4 functions in one: foundation, concealer, sunscreen and active skincare benefits. The Pure Pressed Base (my personal fave!)  gave me amazing coverage with just one quick application. I also liked that it was very buildable so you can achieve the look you want and the product doesn’t look caked on. The amazing base is a loose mineral powder, which works great but I am just personally not a fan of when it comes to foundations because it gets messy (no matter …

B.A.D. Girl Beauty Tip: 5 Ways To Fill in Your Eyebrows

I couldn’t’ agree more with the above quote; I always feel like a new woman when my eyebrows are on point. Ever since I discovered the wonders of filling in my very light, barely there brows I just don’t feel complete without them, especially when I am putting on a full face of makeup. Your eyebrows really do make a huge difference and filling them in takes them to the next level! Your first step is to figure out the perfect shape for your face and then you need to figure out which way you like to fill them in because each technique creates a different look. 1. Brow Pencil: This is one of the most basic ways to fill in your brows. Brow pencils come in varying shades and have a waxier formula than eyeliner pencils. This allows them to go on naturally and smoothly, without the risk of harsh lines so don’t try using your eyeliner! I personally use MAC’s self sharpening eyebrow pencil in Lingering ($16).  When applying use short, light strokes to …
