Makeup Wars Favorite Waterproof Makeup Makeup Wars: Favorite Waterproof Makeup

In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are talking about our favorite waterproof products. This is perfect timing what with the temps starting to heat up. I think of these more as meltproof/sweatproof products than pure waterproof products, since I am not that much of a pool going gal, as my pale skin can attest. So, I decided to give you guys my quick and dirty look for the summer, and it will even work at the pool, if you are in to that kind of thing.

Now, I don’t include any face products, because, well, none of those are waterproof & they are just going to sweat off of me no matter what I do, so I barely even try during the warm months. 110deg Oklahoma Summer will do that to a gal.

I always tend to keep my eyes fixed, and these items keep them ready, no matter the moistness:

Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara: If you guys remember, this was one of my “Desert Island” staples, so, if it is good enough for the island, it’s good enough for hanging out by the pool. (*If you are looking for a drugstore WP mascara, you might also remember that I’ve hung out at the pool in some Covergirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara, too.)

Maybelline Color Tattoo Gel Shadow: I know I have told you about these over and over and over again, but they really are a great waterproof shadow option, especially for a drugstore brand – the variety of colors are amazing, but I generally keep a neutralish color around so I can play with brighter eyeliner.

Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen: These eyeliners are ridiculously great for my eyes. They glide on almost as easy as liquid liner, but with a pencil width and wear. And, their waterproof claim is no joke. I have got an eye that continues to water like a weeping statue, whether from allergies or just to annoy the hell out of me (*which it does). These pencils have become my go-to liner that stands up to my constant wiping, without staining my eyelid, nor fading away after first wipe and comes in a bunch of different, vibrant colors.

As for my lips, we know that we can’t keep gloss or lipstick on for very long, and we need to reapply sunscreen lip products, esp hanging out by the pool/lake/ocean. The one thing I have found that keeps color on my lips and holds up to reapplication of lip wax is a lip stain:

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain: This drugstore goodie is water-based so you won’t dry out your lips and still keep color on your lips while playing in the water. (*Fun fact: I use this to draw on my kids’ face for Spirit Days at school – it wears off overnight and lasts thru sweaty pep rallies!)

So, these are the things that pretty much get me thru an Oklahoma summer. What are some of your favorite waterproof/meltproof/sweatproof products?

And, after you tell me that, go check out what these other lovelies have picked as their waterproof faves:

Mally Made Beyonce Look Good at the 2013 Inauguration

 Mally Made Beyonce Look Good at the 2013 Inauguration

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: Favorite Summer Lippie

favoritesummerlippie Makeup Wars: Favorite Summer Lippie
previouslippie Makeup Wars: Favorite Summer Lippienextlippie Makeup Wars: Favorite Summer Lippie

This “Makeup Wars” challenge isn’t really that much of a challenge, but an opportunity to tell you about my favorite Summer lippie. This one was a no-brainer for me because I always know where this one is – it’s the Pink Shaded Lip Balm from the “Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Lip System”.

7610355576 a445063053 b 300x211 Makeup Wars: Favorite Summer Lippie

This peachy pink balm (*which Mally made in honor of her Momma, btw) is sheer enough not to be opaque, which I don’t really dig for the summer, but give really great “my lips but better” color with just a hint of shimmer. Not glittery, but light reflective. It’s not super long lasting, but it makes my lips feel hydrated instead of drying out in this ridiculous heat we have been having. My one negative about it is that it doesn’t have SPF, so I tend to wear it more in the evenings.

What is your favorite summer lippie? Do you only wear lippies with SPF during the day or do you skip the SPF for the color?

*Disclaimer: I received this from their PR for editorial consideration.

Pledge to “Fight The Powder” with Mally Beauty

 Pledge to Fight The Powder with Mally Beauty You guys know I have been PREACHING to you about the wonders of the Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender for almost 2 years now. And I’ve convinced several of you (*Retrodiva) to give up the powder and make the switch. But for those of you that are still on the fence about it (*how could you be?!?), I have a couple of opportunities for you to try to check it out.

For those of you lovelies in NYC on Tuesday, May 8th, Mally and her “Fight The Powder” team will be outside Grand Central Station during rush hour (6:30AM – 9:30AM and 4pm – 7pm) to give the first 50 women who take the pledge to give up their powder a Face Defender, with a pink mirror that has a QR code that will link to a video with exclusive tips & discounts from Mally.

And for those of you not in NYC, you can sign the pledge on the Mally Beauty Facebook page for a chance to be one of 10 weekly winners of a Face Defender, and maybe even the Grand Prize winner of a 30min Skype session with Mally & the products she rec’s for the winner in the chat. (*This promotion goes on until June 7th).

So, have I convinced you to make the switch? I would love to know if you have or if you are going to make the pledge.
