Susan Posnick blush brightens April with a special promo

Spring is here and it’s time to get a little color back in your skin. It may be tempting  to go lay out in the sun or head to the tanning bed, but your skin could suffer irreparable damage.  Inspired by her own battle with skin cancer, Beauty expert Susan Posnick has created a line of cosmetics formulated to help protect skin.

This Spring/Summer, try Susan Posnick’s COLORME Blush. It comes in a travel-friendly container and can be used for cheeks, eyes and lips. The  self-dispensing pot has an attached puff and mirror for easy application.  Susan also has some tips using the universal Lotus Sun shade.

COLORME in Lotus Sun

 Cheeks: Apply Lotus Sun onto the cheekbone and apple of the cheek for just the right amount of color, while the shimmer in it highlights the cheekbone at the same time.

Eyes: Dab the luxurious sponge applicator onto the eyelid for a hint of color on the lid. This soft coral will brighten every eye. For more intense color, unscrew the top of the container, and dip into the lid with a dry or wet brush. The color will be more intense if you use a wet brush. I also like using Lotus Sun with a wet eyeliner brush to line under the bottom lashes.

Lips: Dab the puff onto the lips for a hint of color. Or, unscrew the cap, dab a lip brush into the top of the Lotus Sun to highlight the center of the lower lip, for that perfect pout.

During the month of April get COLORME in any shade for $25 (reg. $32) plus free shipping with promo code April 15 at susanposnick.com.

Vita Liberata  has developed a new self-tanner in the form of a mineral bronzer. Trystal Minerals, the world’s first self-tanning mineral bronzer $55) will be coming to over 300 Sephora J.C.  Penney stores beginning on March 5, 2015.

Trystal Minerals use Trystal3™ technology, which combine instant pure mineral bronzing with long lasting tan results. DHA activates from a dry crystalline form when placed in contact with skin that has a layer of moisturizer or liquid foundation.  Simply apply it with a kabuki brush, and you never have to worry about streaked hands. It is available in two shades.

Vita Liberata is also releasing a overnight anti-aging bronzing creme and two new sunscreens. You can also get these products at VitaLiberata.com.

 

It’s so Bronzy!

If you haven’t jumped on the bronzer bandwagon yet, here is an easy, inexpensive way. Most of us think bronzer is for adding all over color to combat paleface. That is not completely true makeup artists have been using it to narrow noses and create cheek bones for eons (okay maybe not eons!).  Actress Jenny Mc Carthy always has notable bronzed cheekbones.  If you are not sure if bronzing is for you – don’t buy a spendy one. This NYC Sun 2 Sun has worked great for me. I found it at ULTA for about $4.

For definition, you should use a matte bronzer. For all over color use one with a shimmer. For great bronzing tips from Rain Cosmetic’s National Artist go to my Examiner.com Bronzer 101 story.
