Ami Approved: Prime Time

We've all been there... You've created a beautiful eye shadow look and end up finding it under your eyes a couple of hours later. Or maybe even on the tops of your cheekbones? Or worse, your shadow has just disappeared all together!

Well, my friend, this may be because you jumped ahead of yourself and committed a makeup “don’t” by forgetting one very important step...your glo minerals Lid Primer!

The glo minerals Lid Primer goes on your lids from lashes to eye brows in order to create the perfect canvas for flawless Eye Shadow application. The Lid Primer is a beautiful buttercream yellow color which masks any darkness, discoloration or veins on the lids and brightens the face. It goes on smoothly with a creamy texture and also helps prevent eye shadow from creasing by cutting down on oil production. The Lid Primer can be worn alone or under any eye shadow to enhance the color. Best of all, it helps your look stay all day! Now is the prime time to start using glo minerals' Ami Approved Lid Primer!

*tip: Use as a liner under shadow on the lower lash line for a defined look that stays!

Q&A with Kate: Proper Way to Use Under Eye Concealer

Q: Hi Kate! What is the best way utilize concealers and makeup without accentuating the crepe skin underneath your eyes?

-Roena via Facebook

Kate: Thanks, Roena! I get this question a lot!  One of the best things about mineral makeup is that a little can go a long way. That being said, I often notice that if you use too much of a product it actually can have an adverse effect! So the number one thing to remember when using mineral makeup is that less is more. Next time you apply your makeup, pay attention to how heavy your touch is and how much product you’re getting on your brushes.  Chances are you are using too much!

I love using the Texture Eye Brush and Moist Hydration Mist when I apply my Concealer Under Eye because my eyes always tend to be dry. After applying my foundation (remember that less is more! Use a pea size amount for liquids, about 3-4 swirls for pressed base, one dip for loose base), I mist my Texture Eye Brush with Moist Hydration Mist to add a bit more hydration. Then I give a quick dip into my Concealer Under Eye and apply using feathered strokes. Again, a little bit goes a long way. Your brush should not be saturated with product; it should have just a smidge of product on the tip. Follow with a spritz of Moist Hydration Mist because minerals love hydration, so the more hydrated your skin the better.

Another quick tip: Be sure you are using glo minerals Concealer Under Eye (not Camouflage Oil Free). Concealer Under Eye It is specially formulated for the delicate under eye area.

Four Easy Ways to Shorten Your Beauty Routine

Whether your mornings are spent chasing kids around before school or hitting the snooze button one too many times, everyone can benefit from a speedier beauty routine. If you are looking for easy ways to shorten your beauty regimen we suggest following these four simple steps.

1) Use Multi-Purpose Products:
Using products that have multiple uses can save you valuable time in the morning or when you are on the go. Using glo minerals Tint for Cheeks and Lips gives you just the right amount of flush to your cheeks and a perfectly rosy pout. The Shimmer Brick is another functional time saver that can work as a bronzer, highlighter and eye shadow. We also love glo therapeutics SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer when short on time. Not only does it protect your skin from the sun but this moisturizer can double as a subtle illuminator when worn under makeup.

Multi-Tasking Beauty Products

2) Strive Towards Clear Skin:
One of the best ways to reduce time spent on your beauty routine is to simply put on less makeup. When your skin is in clear and free from blemishes it’s easier to cut down on time consuming application steps. To get gorgeous blemish free skin try glo therapeutics Clear Acne Cleanser, Brightening Polish and Renew Serum

Strive for clear skin

3) Stay Organized:
It’s amazing what keeping your space clean and organized can do for your daily routine. Keep all of your brushes clean and in one specific spot (for ideas on pretty brush holders take a look at this post!). You will spend less time searching for your favorite products and more time looking gorgeous.

4) Practice Makes Perfect:
Find a routine that works for you and practice it until it becomes second nature. Once you find what products and techniques work best for your skin type, your beauty routine will become short, simple and efficient.

Ami Approved: One -Stop Shopping

I had a bit of a mini-crisis last week. No, I wasn’t running late and I didn’t spill my coffee on my white blouse. I didn’t get a speeding ticket or forget my sister’s birthday. Something much worse happened…I ran out of my SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer. The SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer is something that I like to call “one stop shopping” or “my new best friend.”

With just 2-3 pumps of glo therapeutics SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer, your skin gets more than just sun protection. In addition to powerful protectors like Zinc and Iron Oxide, this sunscreen also contains hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter…but that’s not all! The real kicker is the host of anti-aging benefits which come from ingredients like Matrixyl (which has been clinically shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase collagen) and Copper Peptides (which firm, smooth and soften skin). Together, these ingredients promote beautiful youthful-looking skin.

This feel good sunscreen also has a fantastic brightening effect as the Zinc and Iron Oxides lend subtle illumination to the skin which looks radiant under makeup.  The SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer is a sunscreen that hydrates, looks fantastic under makeup and has heaps of anti-aging benefits! It is Ami Approved and Ami Addicted!
