glitzy glam for happy 2010

December 31st is one of my absolute favorite days, or rather, nights of the year. It's New Year's Eve's no-holds-barred-get-glam-and-be-edgy style that I just love to love. And this year is no different. I've scoured Spring runway looks because if there's a night I can wear runway hair and makeup it's tomorrow! I've got some great ideas and I've pulled together some of glo's fabulous hues to take me fearlessly from 2009 to 2010. For my eyes, I'm definitely starting with gloLid primer (no girl wants a NYE eye shadow look to end up under her eyes before the ball drops.) I'm also addicted to gloCream eyeliner, which I think I'll use in sapphire for a night like this. One gloEye shadow shade I'm also throwing in is mermaid - it has just the dazzle factor a new year's night craves. What are y'all wearing out to greet 2010?

holiday's got a hold on me

The holiday spirit has got a hold of me. I'm not generally the girl who scrubs radio stations for holiday tunes the day after Thanksgiving. In fact, I'm usually the All-that-crazy-holiday-chaos-can-wait-until-at-least-mid-December girl. But this year, I can't deny that I'm tapping my foot to carols (and even seeking them out!) It started this week when my roommates and I put up and decorated a real live Christmas tree. It's a first for all of us in our post-college lives. But the holiday spirit really took hold when I did my holiday present shopping! Giving gifts is one of my favorite things in the world (of course I love receiving them too!) and this year I had so many great glo ideas! Shhh... don't tell, but both my beautiful mother and sister are getting a shimmer brick in gleam. It is one of my personal favorites and it is so versitile. It has travelled with me for all of my weekend trips because it's great for all over glo or for a little highlight here and there and even for eye shadow. I'm also giving my sister the gloTint for cheeks and lips (Self mag loves it too) -- she will love that beautiful berry hue and how easy it is to use! I snagged a lot more that I can tell you about later. Happy holiday gift giving! If you need some ideas, let me know. Or if you have some great ideas, let everyone know!

Ruby love

I've always gone for playing up eyes over lips but the new gloRoyal lip crayon in regal ruby might have changed all of that in the blink of an eye. Here's what happened: I was rushing around this morning snagging keys, coat, snacks etc. trying to make it out the door on time for work when the regal ruby crayon our product manager had given me caught my eye. I was feeling impulsive (also I hadn't had a chance to do much for my eyes) so I popped off the cap and slid that regal ruby crayon right on my lips. Then a glance in the mirror. And Instant love. There is something about the application (this isn't new, everyone's saying the same thing!) that makes this lip crayon a pleasure. It's smooth and soft, but it stays put. Also, the crayon allowed me to put the color just exactly where I wanted it. Then there is this color. I'm in love with the your-lips'-natural-red-only-much-better hue and the way it gave me just the bit of glamour my otherwise harried morning hadn't allowed.

Here's the bonus (and the inspiration for this post) I just walked over to the mirror three hours, a cup of coffee and a bottle of water later, and my lips are still perfectly regal ruby!

Santa Fe-bound

Writing a blog on Friday afternoons just about guarantees that I'll have the weekend on my mind. Today is no different, especially since I'm road-tripping down from Denver to Santa Fe, New Mexico right after work. I'll be a southwestern desert novice but here's what I'm expecting: desert reds and tans and blue skies punctuated by a little bit of that hearty green that peeks through desert landscapes. Then of course there'll be the city and the lights and the night! I just can't wait so I've put together this little ensemble of some of glo's beautiful shades that get me even more excited for the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend... have you snagged your Freebie Friday gift from gloSkincare? It fits right in with those city lights and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to get them for myself...
If this is the first you've heard of it, follow us on twitter and become a fan of glominerals on facebook where more exclusive giveaways are happening right now!

We'll make you blush...

This is a hint because it's Friday and there's no better day for letting a little something slip than a Friday. The glominerals facebook fan page is somewhere you are going to want to be. We're launching the first of an exciting (even if we do say so ourselves) promotion at the beginning of next week and we want you to be a part of it. So make your way over and become a fan and you'll be on the inside for all things glominerals. You won't need a because-it's-Friday hint next time because you'll already know. In fact, you'll be able to give your friends hints. So there's even more to score (points with your friends). Plus, there's no better place to be part of the glominerals conversation! And we love to hear what you have to say.

get Marvelous, darling

Just a few of the publications that have featured the gloMarvelous in pink kit:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a wonderful time to support those affected by breast cancer. glominerals has launched its own special edition kit, the gloMarvelous in pink kit to support the cause! A portion of proceeds from the kit benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Now we've got a perfect way to join hands with the community and work toward an important goal. So when you cross the finish line at the Race for the Cure or pin a pink ribbon to your lapel this month, you can add a little gloBronze kiss and gloLiquid lips in pink ginger as icing on the cake. The kit flatters all skin tones and will add a little shimmer to the glo you've already got from supporting a truly worthy cause. You'll be just marvelous!

To the mountains!

Decision made: I'm off to Vail this weekend! It'll be my first time since I moved to Denver last month. As soon as I leave work, I'll throw some sweaters and such in my bag and fly out the door and up to the mountains. I might be heading to the great outdoors, but I won't be leaving my addiction to everything beauty behind. A girl's got to look her best even clinging to a mountain side, right? But I also don't want to lug a trunk's worth of products. So I've strategized. Here are my two pretty glominerals picks that work double duty for every look I'll need this weekend whether it's for Vail after dark or for wearing with a ponytail and boots on the trails. First pick is the gloShimmer brick in gleam. This little palette's four shades will work for cheek and eye color accents and for highlighting my look for tonight. And tomorrow before I hit the trail, I can swirl the colors together to give my face that fresh glo I crave! My second necessity is the gloTint for cheeks and lips. This flawlessly-flattering product is easy to use and makes cheeks and lips as delicious as the raspberry tint it leaves behind. It'll keep my lips pretty all night and all day!

Daring fall looks, bold lips

Fashion week finished up yesterday and my oh my what a week of beautiful colors, textures and styles! It has me completely ready to try my hand at making one of fall's "haute" looks my own. I've always been a play-up-the-eyes kind of girl (think the Enchanted Midnight Look or the Glam Look by glominerals) but I just might be ready to venture on to that bold lip that is cropping up in all chic corners of the earth this fall. I've got my eye on gloLip stick in siren, which from what Cat Tatman tells us in the great Q&A above (see it in original blog form here) will flatter my skin's warmer undertones. Not to mention, I absolutely can't resist a shade called siren.

glo + fashion week = love

Fashion week kicked off today in NYC! That's about as perfect an excuse as I can think of to spend a week completely enveloped in that glitzy world of haute couture. While I dream of ways to snag those looks off the catwalk for spring, I'm also looking right next to the catwalk at the front-row-sitting-celebs who have fall chic down to a T. I'll be matching trends I see for fall with our fantastic fall collection from glominerals (check out Mischa Barton's metallic look above.) So if you're as in love with Fashion Week as I am, keep in touch here and on our glominerals facebook page! Become a fan and tell your friends!

3. Favorite lipgloss:
Right now, I like Poppy. It's great for spring - and it adds some color to my very pale skin!

Get to know a glo girl...

Can I say the entire smoky eye kit from glominerals? That's 4 eye shadows - but oh so necessary for a sexy smoky eye.
