A little Colour

Today I was inspired to do something a little more out there with the Crush eye shadows. Due to Vancouver having the worst weather this week, I wanted to do create an eye using the new CrushCosmetics picks for spring and in doing that I created a rainbow. To create this look I use the basic blending brush and liner brush. Start at the inner corner with doll parts a basic white. I also applied Doll parts just under the brow. Then I applied our pink (CAKE). It’s important to remember with using mica makeup you need to clean your brush each time or your colours will blend and in this case you what each colour to stand out. After using Cake I used Yellow in Fetish, Green in Jade, and Purple in XOXO. To apply the blue to the top lid (Crush) as liner you need to take a thin liner brush and dip it in water then in the Crush shadow. Do the same with you gold (Super Nova) on the bottom lid. I hope you had a much fun as I did doing this look.

The Spring Fix

Well it’s official, spring transition is in stores and the same goes from the beauty world. Today I’m introducting CrushCosmetics top picks for the spring season and let me just tell you their gorgeous. Going from left to right we have XOXO a soft lavender with a under tone of blue, Bombshell a punchy gold-orange, Ice Maiden a frosty baby blue and cake a delicate pink. All these tones can be worn as eye shadows or liners when dipped in water. And  all the colour a buildable meaning that they go on sheer, giving you the option of how bold you want that colour to look.  So instead of your regular face this season why don’t go with a bright and fresh look this spring.

The Perfect Bath

One of my favorite ways to relax from a long day of work is to use one of the Crush Tube Teas. I prefer using Tube Teas over bubble bath or salts because Salts don’t  always dissolve and bubble bath is filled with chemicals. All you need is toss one of these extra-large unbleached teabags in a steaming tub and relax as the intoxicating sense renewals and soften your body. Each tub Tea is made to be reused at least twice all you have to do Is lay flat to dry.

What’s inside?

The Tub Teas is filled with french rose petals, calendula, eyebright, lavender, meadow foam, comfrey, raspberry leaves, Orange peel, Lemon peel, Strawberry leaves, Marshmallow root, Neem leaf, Chamomile and chickweed.
