That J-Lo Glow..

NARS Illuminator in Super Orgasm, and Velvet Lip Pencil In Calliope
Ladies…Now that spring is upon us.. it is time to clean out not only our closets but our make up bags too! …Or in my case trunk and make room for some springy, summery fresh colors.  So that’s just what I am doing. In stages of course 😉  
My first springy purchase was NARS Illuminator in Super Orgasm and NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Calliope..  They are both super perfect for all the nude and bright palettes of spring..  

The Illuminators are Ah-mazing!!  
I happen to own pretty much all the Orgasm products from NARS.  It’s the only color that I have ever come across that actually looks amazing on EVERYONE.. No matter what color you are.  I have the Orgasm Blush for day, Super Orgasm Blush for night, the Orgasm Multiple for everything and now the Illuminator.  
If you are as obsessed with the “J-Lo glow” as I am, the Illuminators will give it to you. I heard through the grapevine that her make-up artist mixes them with her foundation..  and if you’ve been watching American Idol every week you see that that woman’s make up is freaking flawless ALL THE TIME!
So this is what I do.. 
When I wear foundation I mix..and when I am going “make-up light”.. cause I never go “make-up free” I sweep it across my cheeks..the bridge of my nose, my chin and the mid section of my forehead.. And BLEND BLEND BLEND!!  I can’t stress the importance getting a really good make-up brush and blending..It’s worth the investment. Sephora has some good ones that are not off the wall in price.  But neva..eva..e-v-v-a get a cheap quality one.  Not worth it.  Trust me I’ve already been down that road.
Check out this brush set here from Sephora is a great deal. 
Sephora Starter Kit Brush Set
Okay now on to the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.  Great alternative to lip Liner.  Not drying.. and you can gloss it up if you don’t want matte lips.  I put it all over my lips.
BTW…The Super Orgasm Illuminator is very sparkly.. there are three other shades if you prefer a more subtle glow.  If you are more tan or have darker skin try Orgasm or Laguna.  If you are pale to olive in color try Copacabana..  OR buy them all and do a little mash up.  SUPER FUN!
