Beauty for a Cause: Pink Products for Breast Cancer!

The gorgeous month of October may be almost over, but that doesn’t mean breast cancer awareness stops!

As most people (should) know, October is the month for all things pink and powerful: breast cancer awareness.

Not only is pink my favorite color (!), but I am extremely passionate about this cause! Taking care of your body is sexy, and educating yourself on how to look for breast cancer is empowering.

The statistic that motivates me every time? 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. ONE IN EIGHT. We need to continue fighting for women (and men) who have lost their lives to, are currently battling, or will be diagnosed with, breast cancer.

So put on and proudly use your favorite pink beauty products while spreading the message! These are some of my favorite pink shades and hues that make kicking cancer’s butt look amazing!

1. Sonia Kashuk Proudly Pink 5 PC Brush Set (note: I can’t find this sassy silver edition anymore, but Target is selling this sleek black set! They donate 15% of the purchase to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
2. NARS Blush in Desire
3. stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Paradise Pink
4. Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Budding Blossom
5. Aveda ‘hand relief – Breast Cancer Research Foundation Moisturizer’ ($4 of your hand relief purchase goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation)
6. Essie in Knockout Pout (probably the most elegant pink color ever)
7. MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum (one of the hottest hues for make-up artists and beauty lovers right now!)
8. The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask (PERRRFECT for the harsh winter wind that dries your skin out immensely)
9. Benefit Posietint Lip and Cheek Stain

I cannot BEGIN to tell you how obsessed I am with every product Benefit sells. I picked up Posietint by accident and now can’t imagine living without it (a little dramatic but REALLY). I use it everyday on my cheekies and occasionally as a tint on my lips, because I have naturally very red lips!

Nothing says sweet and girly like this poppy pink shade good for both lips and the apples of your cheeks!

Enjoy, and remember to check yourselves! signoff1

Love ‘Em or Leave ‘Em: Almond-Shaped Nails!

Hey, everyone!

So I’ve been noticing a new nail trend, and I wanted to ask my reader’s opinions on them: almond-shaped nails.

I haven’t rocked them (I’m a nail novice after years and years of getting them done by the same LA perfection Nails in the unique patterns of hot pink or French mani) but maybe a few of you have!

Gimme the cheetah ones.

I want to inform you all that these are NOT my nails, just gorgeous nails found on Pinterest :). I wish they were my own!

Here’s a quick tutorial I found on how to get almond-shaped nails with tips:

When I first saw this trend rocked on celebs like Kim K, I was skeptical; I thought those points could really poke someone’s eye out. But now, after seeing gorgeous pictures of almond-shaped nails everywhere, I changed my mind.

I think I just LOVE ‘EM!

Are you bold enough to rock this look? Talk to me and tell me what you think! Send me pictures! Who knows, if you send me cute almond-shaped nail pics, maybe I’ll Instagram you 😉
