Beauty Spotlight: Pink Sith on a Desert Island


This week the Beauty Spotlight has abandoned The Pink Sith on a desert island. It was probably Lisamarie from Beauty Crazed that suggested it. While the Sith is pretty ticked off about being abandoned, she is looking forward to the 4 S’s of desert island living: Sun, Sand, Surf and Sunscreen!  She has compiled a list of 12 essential items she must have during this exile, and yes, it even includes some beauty items for when she is rescued by Chris Hemsworth (The guy who played Thor) or some suitable facsimile there of.  Enjoy!

Mally Made Beyonce Look Good at the 2013 Inauguration

Mally and Beyonce

By now, we’ve all heard about the controversy about whether or not Beyonce lip-synced the National Anthem during the Inauguration of President Obama. Now, I’m not sure either way, but either way, we have all seen the clip of it so many times that we KNOW she killed it no matter what. The only thing I am certain of from watching that over and over is the fact that she looked AMAZING. And, it’s really not surprising considering the makeup artist who beat her face that day was none other than one of my favorite’s – Mally Roncal.

And Mally has shared her tips to get this look at home, where you can sing along, or lip-sync, to anything you want:

· To first set the skin, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer all over the face and my Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.

· To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply my Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of my NEW Diamond Unpowder that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on my Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.

· To achieve a rich, smokey eye – try my Evercolor Shadow Stick in “Saddle Shimmer”. Apply this all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from the Mally Beauty In the Buff Palette and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of my Age Rebel Shadow Stick in “Chocolate Diamond” on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye followed by using my Lightwand Eyebrightener to the inner corners to instantly brighten this area. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in “Midnight”, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to QVC.com).

· Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look – such as the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and/or my NEW Instant Impact Mascara. To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips try my High Shine Lip Gloss in “Mally’s Look” or “Mally’s Baby”.

· And last but not least, before you leave the house, apply the Mally Beauty Face Defender to lock your makeup in place and Perfect Prep Hydrating Under Eye Brightener to make the eyes pop!

All of these products can be picked up at MallyBeauty.com and QVC.com.

*Disclaimer: As a Mally Beauty ambassador, I have tried several of these products gratis, but there are some I have paid for myself and some I still want to try.

Makeup Wars: Things I Rebuy

It’s time for another edition of “Makeup Wars”, and this time we are talking about items that we rebuy. Now, I try a lot of different things and don’t finish many – it’s just the nature of this site. So, if I repurchase it, then it means I really like it and need it in my life. Here are a few things that I need to keep around me on the regular:

Things I Buy Beautysets

1) Schick Intuition Naturals Razor – I don’t have a big shower (*and I’m lazy), so I like to be able to just make one swipe and shave my legs clean without the repeated lean down to lather up and THEN get to shaving.

2) Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes – I love to keep these by my bed for those nights I didn’t do a full clean up routine (*did I mention I am lazy?). These smell so good and I have even been known to mail some across country to folks who didn’t have them available in their area. People need these wipes.

3) Clairol Root Touch-Up – I swear, my grays grow faster than my color can fade, which is saying a lot for a bottle redhead. So, pretty much every 3 weeks, I’m doing a quick touch-up with this stuff. FYI, I heard they are updating this with a new brush and rounded tray, but I’ll tell you more about that later.

4) Swisspers Cotton Rounds – I use rounds for so many things that I can’t stand to waste time with flimsy rounds that fall apart after one swipe or a smidge too much product on them. These rounds stay together and can handle every thing from removing glitter off of multiple nails to removing drag queen-like lashes after a night out without falling apart.

5) Suave Dry Shampoo – I don’t fix my hair much during the week – it’s pretty much ponytail city every day (*Yep, lazy). But I still don’t want it to look greasy and LOOK like I didn’t wash my hair, so I rock this stuff pretty often. It’s cheap and it smells so dang good, besides helping me not look entirely gross every day.

So, these are just some of the things that I rebuy, besides feminine hygiene and dental care products (*do you guys want to hear about that stuff? I didn’t think so. But if so, I can make you up a beautysets graphic stat! ;)). Tell me, what are some of the items you regularly repurchase for your routines?

And, after that, go see what the other lovelies repurchase for themselves, too:
