The goodies I can't live without

August 22, 2014

Your favorite BB Cream has a new partner in crime.

Incase you missed the big news, I wanted to make sure that you weren't left out. If you already own a tube of Beauty Republic Dramatic BB Tinted Cream, you'll know what I know: it's a must-have secret weapon. In fact, I can't even remember what I used to even out my skin before this. 

If you haven't tried this BB Cream yet, you're in for a treat. It's amazing at keeping your oily skin in check, which is something pretty unheard of for a BB Cream. There are oodles of other skin-saving benefits in these little black tubes. Curious? Check it out here

Luckily for you, you get to choose between two amazing formulas: Original and Green Touch. But I'm sure you're wondering, what the heck is the difference?

Let me ask you this: Do you have seriously oily skin? Do you get redness on your face that just won't quit? If you answered yes to one (or both) of those questions, Green Touch is for you. It neutralizes redness with a built-in green makeup base. Plus, it's a champ at fighting oily skin.

If you don't really have a serious redness or oily skin problem, you're better off with Original. It's great for all skin types and battles our tropical weather with amazing staying power. 

Now, consider yourself informed! I hope this helps you choose the best BB Cream that suits your skin and your lifestyle. If it has, then I've done my job. If not, feel free to email me so I can help you out.

Happy Friday!

Love and shine-free skin,

P.S. CarmenClaire's KISS MY APPLES Lip and Cheek Cream is back in stock! Here's a tip: wear it underneath your BB Cream for that "glow from within" or layer it on top for healthy, flushed cheeks. Your friends will be dying to know what your secret is! Get your fix here

5 tips to wear red lips (the right way)
5 tips to wear red lips (the right way)

November 15, 2017

A lady can never have too many lipsticks, and a beautiful red is one of the first things a beauty junkie ever buys. It's deceptively simple to wear, but think of these few tips for your next holiday party and take your favorite red lipstick to the next level. 


1. Matte and shimmer, made for each other.

The holidays tend to make us more heavy-handed with the glitter, but remember this: matte lips and shimmery cheeks, OR matte skin and glossy red lips. It's either one or the other, so don't overdo it! 

2. Prep your canvas.

There's nothing worse than beautiful red lips and nothing else on the face. Red lipstick is a classic that demands respect, so at the very least, make sure to de-shine your skin and fill in your brows. It'll give you a more polished look.
