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!
