I first learned of Breakups to Makeup at The Makeup Show Orlando in November.  The company is known for its unique quirky cosmetic-related slogans and caught my eye at the beauty pro trade show.

The fun company has partnered with Sephora to bring a new accessory assortment to everyone.  The three cosmetic bag or clutches feature two of Breakups to Makeup signature quotes “LOSING YOU HURT BUT LOSING MY MAKEUP WOULD BE A TRAGEDY and “I WOULD CRY BY MY MASCARA IS DESIGNER” the third is a Sephora exclusive, “LIFE IS SHORT, WEAR MORE MAKEUP’.

The clutches retail for $24 and a made of a durable canvas material, they are large enough to fit a phone and take out or to house all of your cosmetics.

Founder Angelique Velez began the company in June 2013, with a series of catchy phrases on a variety of products that celebrate the art.  “The goal of Breakups to Makeup has always been to encourage the artistic expression and empowerment that many makeup enthusiasts feel makeup has brought into their lives.  We are beyond thrilled to become a part of the beauty wonderland that they have created.”

Should You Use Beauty Oils?

beauty oilThere is always a new trending product or serum that becomes the rage and you see all the companies make their version of it.  But, that doesn’t always mean it is for your skin.

Beauty Oil seems to be the trending new skincare product that is all over.  I have tried a couple of oils especially in the dry months to aid against drier skin.  A few tips if you are thinking about using Beauty Oils and which ones you should use based on your skin.

A great way to add a little beauty oil into you regime without going crazy is to mix it with your moisturizer.  Especially in the daytime if you are using a moisturizer with SPF.

Press oils onto your skin, don’t rub them in.

Bought an oil but not loving it for your skin?  Don’t toss it, use oil on dry hair to tame fly-aways.  Keep in mind to use it lightly and not go heavy.  Or mix the oil with your body moisturizer.

Beauty Oils can curb the signs of aging as they deliver antioxidants.  They also can make your skin glow by delivering moisture and radiance to the skin.  If you have oily skin than go with light oils or one that says featherweight on it.  This way you get the benefits of oil without the heaviness.  Another way to utilize oil is trying the cleansing oils.  They deep cleanse and remove makeup while leaving skin soft and not stripping it.

Still not sure?  One place that is great for being able to try it out and they will send samples home with you is Sephora.
