I painstakingly went through the trouble to de-pot all of my NARS blushes, only to drop the entire palette on the floor. Everything survived, except for my favorite blush, Orgasm.
Thankfully I learned how to reassemble a broken powder. No need to throw away a broken powder, bronzer, blush or eye shadow again, follow these easy steps!
The only supplies you need are rubbing alcohol and I used a painting spatula. You can find this at any craft store, or just a butter knife.
1.) Using the painting spatula, I crumble the broken pieces into a fine powder.
2.) Add rubbing alcohol. Use a little at a time! I can’t stress this enough. If you don’t use enough, you can always add more, but if you add too much, it’s all over for your powder. The final product should feel like a cream/gel blush.
3.) Once it is the perfect consistency, spread the mixture in the pan as evenly as possible.
4.) Let dry. This could take 24-48 hours depending on how large of an area you are working with.
Perfect ‘Orgasm’… Once again. Tee hee hee.
I’m a creature of habit, so my makeup routine doesn’t really change. It took me over a year to figure out what makeup and skincare I wasn’t allergic to and I’ve finally nailed the routine that keeps my skin looking “flawless.”
Dr. Jart Black Label Detox BB Cream -I get asked a lot about this product. Primarily because it only comes in one universal shade. If this BB Cream doesn’t suit your skin tone, I add a little of Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer in a shade or two darker than my skin tone. The other product I recommend is Clarins’ UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection Tint SPF 40 in Deep.
La Mer The Radiance Concealer (Medium) + I use Le Metier’s Eye Brightening and Setting Powder (Refresh) to set my concealer
I ‘ve been experimenting with different powder foundations to set my makeup with, but my favorite is the Burberry Powder Foundation. I use Trench #7.

LORAC Baked Matte Satin Blush in Exposed

Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Demolition
Origins Ginzing Mascara

Lipstick and blush are really the only things I switch up. Someday’s I may feel a bit bolder and go for a lippie like Burberry ‘Blush’ or if I want a stronger cheek, I’ll use a NARS blush.
(Woo for corny YouTube posing! We’re all guilty.)
I have numerous RHW tutorials planned, but I saw this really natural look the other day and thought I don’t do many of those, why not start the new channel with something a little different?
Maybe if I dropped a few lbs. I could get ‘dem cheeckbones a poppin’!
I didn’t show my foundation routine in the video, but I went for the good-old standby’s:
Hourglass Mineral Veil foundation
Sonia Kashuk concealer (for the face)
La Mer concealer and Le Metier de Beaute eye brightening and setting powder
Burberry sheer foundation powder
NARS – Blondie (for brows)
Burberry Fresh Glow
Burberry e/s – Chestnut
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner – Stash
CoverGirl mascara – LashBlast
L’Oreal True Match powder – Creme Cafe
Burberry Tangerine blush
MAC lipliner – Dervish
Burberry lipstick – Rosewood
Burberry lip gloss – Nude Beige
Seriously, it takes 5 minutes.
Normally I hate what I look like with minimal makeup. Lately, however, I don’t know what’s been going on, but I think I look terrible with a lot of makeup. Maybe it’s because I’m teetering on mid-20′s, but I think I just look a lot older and like I am trying too hard. Burberry has become my favorite makeup brand… I don’t really wear anything else. I’ve even been returning a lot of my makeup that I don’t use anymore.
Definitely recommend giving this one a go!
I also need to start thinking of Halloween tutorial ideas… let me know your suggestions down below
