Hello loves it’s #MakeupMonday and today I’m discussing the importance of keeping your beauty products clean. Think about the products you use everyday; your eye shadows, blush, pressed powder foundations, highlighters, and bronzers. Plus you can’t forget your cream-based products: compact foundation, concealers, cream blush/eye shadows and lipsticks. Now think about the natural oils from your skin and how they end up on the surfaces of your makeup and skincare products ultimately leaving bacteria behind. The results of this oil build-up (also known as glazing) can be seen on the surface of your products.
BeautySoClean sanitizing mist and wipes remove bacteria and germs leaving your makeup clean for the next use. Applying your makeup with clean brushes and using clean makeup is so important for maintaining a healthy face. Clean your brushes using Conditioning Brush Cleaner to gently clean and conditions makeup brushes.
Conditioner is safe for natural or synthetic bristles. Both sanitizing mist and wipes disinfect the surface of your cosmetics without altering the texture. BeautySoClean cannot reverse the damage done to pressed powders but daily use of Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist on new makeup will remove bacteria and keep your products looking new.
How to sanitize makeup: Hold Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist 6 inches / 15cm from product surface and mist once.
Last but not least for my lash batting babes the new Lash cleanser is for you ! The Mist and Lash tool help remove old glue, residue and bacteria for your lashes. Adding this new step to your routine is quick and easy since the mist dries quickly. Shop cosmetic sanitizers at www.beautysoclean-us.com ! Happy Shopping, Stay beautiful 🙂
OUTFIT OF THE DAY #75: Crimes of Beauty
Happy Fatshion Friday babes. I bought this chic t-shirt at the Make Up Show Orlando earlier this year. I love to sport this tee on my casual days especially pay day also know as dress down friday. Crimes of Beauty had a booth with a variety of graphic t-shirts, hoodies and other beauty accessories. I fell in love with this Tee the second I saw it and it was fate because it was the last one in my size. Tees, tanks and hoodies are available in sizes small up to 3x are available but they do run 1 size smaller (3x -18/20).
Crimes of Beauty is a witty, cutting-edge apparel and accessory line where beauty pros write the rules. Featuring clever and creative sayings teasing the “parodies” of the beauty industry, this fashion line speaks to the urban girl who effortlessly pulls together a stylish outfit with a flash of flair and grit. The Tee I purchased was limited edition but check put some of the dope this they have in stock now. Here are some of my favorites:
I got all these goodies at the Kat Von D boothe at the Orlando Make Up Show. Her boothe had lipstick chandeliers, live beauty demonstrations, a rose wall and a lipstick throne which I definitely took a photo in. The line was so long but worth the wait for the discounts and amazing products.
Whip out a killer Kat Eye with a Tattoo Liner. This brush-tip liquid liner is the magic wand of makeup with it’s highly pigmented, 24-hour-wear formula.

My family swears by Vicks VapoRub for colds, allergies and fevers. Simply because the medicated vapors begin to work fast to relieve your symptoms. Use on chest and throat; temporarily relieves cough due to common cold. On muscles and joints, temporarily relieves minor aches and pains. Under nose to relieve sinus pressure and mucus buildup.

Refreshed is a lightweight skin spritz that you won’t want to stop using—morning, noon and night. Hyaluronic Acid quenches dry skin and minimizes pores, while a wide array of natural extracts give your skin a noticeable perky and bright appearance. Need a quick pick me up? Cucumber, Kelp and Apple Enzymes refresh and re-hydrate. I love to spray “Refreshed” on my bare face or beat face. It keeps my face hydrates but not oily or greasy. I like to use it as a mist and set. Available at www.thisisfeel.com.
Cosmetic Sanitizer Mists removes bacteria and germs on powder-based products: eye-shadows, blushers, pressed powder, bronzers, cream-based products: compact foundation, concealers, cream blush/eye-shadows.
