Brush Cleaning 101

Oh, thank you thank you makeup brushes. In return, it's time to take care and clean you because you are probably dirty and full of bacteria. 

Here are two ways to clean your makeup brushes:

Heavy Duty
  1. Use a professional brush cleaning spray from a your local or online beauty supply
  2. Start with your foundation and cream blush brushes (these have the most product residue and need the most attention)
  3. Spray solution directly on the brush heads and soak the bristles completely
  4. Rub the brush head back and forth over a paper towel or tissue repeatedly until there is no more product coming off
  5. Spray the rest of your brushes one at a time (i.e. eyeliner, lip, eyebrow brushes)
Gentle D.I.Y.
  1. Pour a tablespoon of any baby or organic shampoo into a small bowl
  2. Add warm water from your faucet so it gets nice and bubbly
  3. One at a time, dip your used brushes into the solution, gently swirling them across the bottom of the bowl to release the product. Keep the brushes in the water as you add each new one.
  4. After washing, let the brushes have a quick soak for 5-10 seconds, no more and no less
  5. One by one, hold each brush under cold water to rinse any remaining product and seal the hairs
  6. Re-mold each brush if necessary by pressing the hairs between your fingers until it’s back to its original shape
Drying Station

Do not dry your brushes in an upright position because the water settles into the glue that’s holding the bristles together at the base of each brush head and starts breaking down the glue over time, causing the hairs to come off when you swipe the brush against your face. So you can either lay your brushes flat or even better, make this quick little drying station in two steps!
  1. Grab a hand towel, a paper towel or a dinner napkin. Fold it in half three times, to make it smaller and to create a “crease,” then unfold it once. Where your crease was, slide anything cylinder shaped under it to create the base of your see-saw.
  2. Balance each brush across the crease so that the brush head is pointing down, but not touching the napkin. Now let them dry completely for a few hours (or overnight).

BB Creams and CC Creams

BB Creams

BB is short for "blemish or beauty balms". It has the anti-aging formulas combine the hydration of a moisturizer with the coverage of a foundation. They treat all kinds of concerns (like fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and oiliness), offer SPF protection, act as a primer for makeup, cover minor blemishes and even out your skin tone. 

CC Creams

CC is short for "color and care" or "color and correct", CC creams are essentially BB creams on steroids. They're designed to offer more coverage than BB creams but still go on sheer, they moisturize better, and they contain hard-core anti-aging ingredients.

What do you think? BB or CC Creams?

Blueberry Beauty

"Blueberries are nutritional and contain powerful antioxidants, which protect our skin by neutralizing free radicals, which can damage skin cells," says dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad. "Blueberries assist in reducing redness for those who suffer from sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, as well as help neutralize acne-prone skin. In addition, if you have blotchy, dry, dull, or sun-damaged skin, eating blueberries on a regular basis can help leave skin looking clearer, firmer, and more youthful looking."

According to Dr. Murad, you get more beauty benefits out of these health foods by ingesting them, rather than applying them. "The health of our skin is not only affected by what we put on it topically, but also what we ingest internally. This is because topical skin care products only address the 20% of your skin on the surface; the other 80% of your skin is affected by what you eat and drink."

New Blush!

It's been awhile since I had a new color out. I'm on a mission to launch the new blush colors and so far have 1 color. I call this Outrageous Pink as it's the sister color of Pink Blossom eyeshadow ( Pink Blossom is versatil so you can use it as a blush too!). It's pretty much the same color however there's an extra ingredient.

This is a HOT pink shimmery blush. Create a subtle color definition to your cheeks that will add radiance and a glow, for a healthy look you can see. Applies easily and blends seamlessly for natural looking, sheer, soft radiant color that won't streak or fade all day.

This blush is packed with a sealed sifter in a 10 gram jar.
Qty: 1
Net Weight: 2 grams
Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, tin oxide, iron oxide, silica, magnesium stearate, zinc oxide

Here is the listing on our Etsy site:

Look out for more blush and bronzers colors.

Skin Food: Anti-Aging

It is important to to use a few specific products to help your skin stay healthy and radiant. Yet, these products alone aren’t enough to preserve your looks. Why not? Because once we pass our teens and 20s, our skin starts losing collagen (which keeps skin firm) and elastic tissue (which keeps it supple). The result: thinner skin, frown lines, and wrinkles. To fight these effects, you’ve got to feed your skin what it needs to build healthy collagen and elastic tissue. Here’s how to slow the signs of aging:

EAT PLENTY OF PROTEIN. Collagen is a protein, so all proteins (like chicken, lean meats, and soy) will help keep your skin strong and flexible.

DON’T YO-YO DIET. When you starve yourself, you deprive your body of the building blocks of collagen and your skin ages faster.

CUT BACK ON SUGAR. Sugar breaks down healthy tissue and interferes with your body’s ability to make new collagen, leaving your skin thinner and weaker. If you have a sweet tooth, try having just a spoonful of dessert, not the whole thing, and avoid high fructose corn syrup (found in soda, salad dressings and many sweet cereals).

LOAD UP ON VEGETABLES. Studies show that those who eat lots of colored vegetables have fewer wrinkles, especially crows feet around the eyes. So instead of rice, potatoes or pasta, have spinach, squash or green beans next to your chicken, fish, tofu or steak.

7 Spring Makeup Trends & Skin care tips to try

  • Fresh Faced: Before you consider any product change, get your skin in the best condition by exfoliating and using a face mask. Exfoliating your entire body two to three times per week as well and use a weekly face mask depending on your skin's needs. Our favorite exfoliator right now is Beautisol's Go Slough Yourself. It will blast away the last remnants of dry winter skin.
  • Ditch the Heavy Foundation: We love a creamy foundation for winter, but change it out for a tinted moisturizer for spring and summer. No need to buy a new product; make your own by mixing your current liquid or cream foundation with your moisturizer.
  • Enhance Your Eyes: This spring is all about small pops of color, and your eyelids are the perfect place for that pop. Orange, pinks, blues, and greens - pick your favorite and go for color this spring. We're also seeing an increase of the strong brow look (not to be confused with unkempt brows) and eyeliner pulled out into a cat-eye look. We're personally admiring those two looks from afar, but if you're bold enough, this is the time to find your inner kitty.
  • Sporty Cheeks: Sporty-flushed cheeks are hot this spring. And lucky for you, you don't have to be a runner to get the look. Pick a creamy pink or peach blush like Laura Mercier's Innocent Peach this spring. Put on your favorite pair of yoga pants and let everyone think you just came out of the gym. We won't tell.
  • Lucious Lips: There is a lip trend for everyone this spring. Glossy or matte - take your pick. Glossy pink is hot, hot, hot, and so easy everyone to wear. We are loving Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream Lip Polish for just about every skin tone. But if you want matte lips, try a nude or light pink such as Nars Madere.
  • Hint of Glow: Don't dig out the self-tanner just yet. Using an illuminating bronzer like Josie Maran's Argan Illuminizer will give your face the illusion of inner glow without the fakeness of an early tan. Apply in moderation to the areas of your face that naturally hit the sun, plus your collarbone and your bare shoulders for a natural radiance.
  • The Most Important Step: Sunscreen! We hope you've been wearing a facial sunscreen all winter long, but in case you haven't, start now. A mineral sunscreen like Clarins UV Plus Dayscreen is so light it's is almost invisible. The sun is responsible for most of your aging signs so apply after your foundation and again as needed throughout the day.

What are some of your Spring beauty tips?

xoxo, Lilly

Looking for Testers!

Hello All,

As most of you know I recently started my mineral line. I"m still in the testing/formulation stage and have not finalized my release date. ( I'm hoping end of Jan 2012) With this said, I'm looking for a few willing testers to test out my mineral eyeshadows ( multipurpose as well). I do have some requirements since you will be giving me your HONEST review.


- Must be HONEST and THOROUGH. I don't want someone who says OH this colors is nice or this is horrible. I want constructive criticism. Feedback is very important to me. I want to know the specifics so I can change the formula and make it better. For example, This needs more adhesion, slip,not blended well, etc.

-Must wear it as an eyeshadow, liner, blush, face, or lips for at least a day. This is the most effective way to tell if the product is intended for. You can not just swatch it and say it's needs improvement. ( Some products are not for Lips and these will be CLEARLY marked)

- Must be kept CONFIDENTIAL. What this means you can not blog, facebook, twitter and/or youtube about testing my mineral line. I'm not sending it to you as a PR review.

- Must have knowledge of makeup ingredients. If you don't have knowledge of the makeup ingredients this does no good to me. Part of testing my mineral line is knowing what are the ingredients. What each type of ingredient does and what it helps with. For example, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Silica, Etc

- Must be 18+ years of age & in the United States. Sorry I do not ship international at the moment.

-Must respond within 3-5 days of receiving products. Respond Via Email is fine. I don't want an essay but at least good responses to each product.

- Can not hold myself or Pink Blossom Cosmetics liable for any reaction to any product or ingredients I offer.

If you're interested please send me an email with Subject Mineral Tester to Please include a little bio about your makeup background, name, age, and that you AGREE to the requirements. Once I do select you I will respond and request for your mailing address. You will be sent "SAMPLES" to test and provide feedback within 3-5 days.

Thank You!

I started with PBC a year ago and didn't have a clue where i wanted to lead this small side gig.

I will re-open it once I have my mineral line finished which will be soon. I'm hoping mid to late Jan 2012.
