Hi Bella girls! As you know, makeup is quite pricy but you’ve got to have it. When I find that I’m running low, I just hope that I don’t run out of more than one product at a time.
That’s where ColourPop comes to the rescue. A unique cosmetic line, the company was born and raised in LA, the City of Angels where fashion is everything! They specialize in fancy, yet affordable makeup that provides a quality formula that looks great without breaking the bank.
After checking out what their entire site had to offer, I chose the In Bloom box that runs for about $39. If you know makeup then you know Jamie Greenburg, and the box she has put together is awesome! Inside it includes three shades of Super Shock Cheek (blush!) that comes in Double Dip, Hysterical, and Tongue Tied. She provides tips and tricks on how to achieve the best look, including mixing and application. Also enclosed are three Lippie Stix that come in creamy colors like Frenemie, Freshman, and Sweet Thing, which range from a matte finish to a hyper glossy finish.
The founders at ColourPop are really interested in feedback from their customers, and they welcome ideas for shades! They stay on top of the game, skimming YouTube and even the booming fashion industry, to provide the best looks to people like you and me.
Be sure to check out their website if you are interested in the box that I selected! Also, if you are looking for tips and tricks to perfect your look, I recommend checking out Jamie’s Facebook page. Have fun!

Sometimes less is better, especially if you’re aiming for an all-natural look. Makeup can be time consuming and tricky on which colors fit your skin tone but here are a few helpful products and tips to create a new, more fresh look.
First of all when starting your daily look, make sure you’ve completely cleaned your face and with either your fingertips or a makeup sponge apply Benecos natural BB cream evenly on your face. Benecos BB cream is a facial cream and light foundation that has a mix of eight different benefits to your skin.
Next, try applying a small amount of Benecos natural powder blush with one of the wide range of brushes offered by Luxie Lush to the apples of your cheeks to brighten up your face.
Tip: Changing your makeup brushes is a must! If your brush is constantly shedding, has a different odor, has any cracks or if it loses its shape then it is time for a new one.
Last but not least final touch to add, is lip-gloss. Rozgé lip gloss is all natural and made with organic ingredients. Rozgé provides protection to your lips while adding a statement with the 22 different shades offered.
If you’re going out on the town, try their reddish orange tint, Dublin or if you want a more subtle color go with their baby pink, Olso.
Now go show off your new look!
