6 Smart Beauty Problem Solvers!

Makeup and beauty products are supposed to enhance and generally make life easier and more pleasant. That’s my opinion anyway. Here are six of of my beauty problem solvers that will make you look fresh and awake, give your hair some oomph, smooth skin, keep your lipstick in place and dry your nails in a flash. Read on!

1420943670_freedom_burstJulep Freedom Polymer Top Coat ($18): Forget smearing a fresh manicure you thought had dried. Julep’s new top coat dries in five minutes and has a smudge-proof, high-gloss finish—like a gel polish, without the wear-and-tear.
1420943609_82918-425x425-cargo2CARGO Reverse Lip Liner ($16): Tired of trying to keep lipstick/gloss from bleeding into your lip lines? Try a reverse lip liner to keep it in it’s place.   This natural colored pencil adds definition and fullness to the lip line as it locks color in place. It is applied around the outer edges of the lip line and blended up and out to create a highlight around the mouth for the look of fuller lips. Available in two shades: fair and medium/fair.
1420943543_40b2f9c1-9da1-4a39-977c-29bc601a47f9VOLOOM Hair Volumizing ToolIf you want big, lush hair you NEED the VOLOOM Hair Volumizing Iron. I can honestly say after 50+ years of trying to bring the oomph to my hair, this is THE one product that got the job done AND it’s so easy and quick to use! See my before and after pics in this post. 
1420943427_ma_azulenecOverdid the facial scrub? Chapped or windburned cheeks? Get relief withMario Badescu Azulene Calming Mask ($18)Soothe And Calm Irritated Skin. Soothing Azulene, a Chamomile Extract, along with Balsam Peru, a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, come together in this non-hardening mask that comforts irritated, red, and very sensitive skin types. Also made with Kaolin (clay) and Wheat Starch to absorb impurities in the pores. 
1420943258_crayon-combo-all-closeup-wide-awake-20jun13-webPixi’s Wide Awake Crayon Combo ($18) is a double-ended dynamo that creates a wide awake look even if you haven’t had your full  8 hours of beauty sleep.  This little multi-tasking wonder has two sides: a matte nude to brighten and a glowing cream to lighten! The matte side is a creamy nude peach I like to use on my brow bone and the glowy side is a slightly (just enough) shimmery champagne and looks fab on the inner corners of the eye.
1420943077_300Amope Pedi Perfect Pedicure Tool: Is perfect for pretty-fying feet with no pain. It’s a great tool for at-home pedis and takes the chore out of using a foot file or pumice stone! Read my full review here.
