Some ladies literally glow in their pictures and it's beautiful! I'm a fan of both a matte or glow makeup finish. So when I'm in the mood to be a little more radiant, here's what I use. NYX liquid illuminator! It will give you the radiant glow you are looking for! It doesn't look wet…it just brightens your face! You can blend it in to your foundation or dab it on areas of your liking such as the cheek bones. Choose from the NYX Gleam (light peachy pink) or Sunbeam (iridescent light pink) liquid illuminators. I chose Gleam as it has a darker shade I prefer. Purchased at Ulta for about $7. Truth be told I did once upon a time purchase Mac luster drops before being aware that MAC likes to test on animals. I promise you that NYX illuminator is just as good and much less costly with the same effect! So get your glow on this this summer lovely ladies and do it right the cruelty free way. It will make you a beautiful person inside and out!

This Easter I'm teaching the young ladies in my church youth group how to make these adorable Easter Bunny towels. I thought it would be great to post to my site as they so closely resemble PETA's cruelty free bunny logo! Here's a link on how to make your very own:                                  
These make for a cute gift for anyone! Keep in mind that real bunnies as Easter gifts to children are not a good idea. Bunnies do not make good pets and should be left in the wild. No animal should have to live it's life in a cage.
   Happy Cruelty Free Easter!

Can you imagine your hair dye being tested on animals? Poured down their throats and into their eyes? Time to go cruelty free!

This is my very first time ever trying out hair dye that's cruelty free!! I used, "Naturcolor in 5R Light Sienna Chestnut". The ends of my hair I left with the original color to give it an ombre effect. I think this is a fun color for a change! Check out your local organic food stores and they are likely selling cruelty free brands such as, "Naturcolor, Herbatint, Tints of Nautre" etc. Those are the only brands that I'm currently familiar with. If you prefer to go to a salon, find a Paul Mitchell Salon. Unfortunatly Aveda is no longer cruelty free. Please see:
If you live in Europe you have other brand options that we do not have here in the USA which look to be awesome! Here's a link:

Have fun finding new, fun and beautiful hair colors ladies!

I went shopping for some fun spring time Easter nail polish colors and picked up L.A colors polishes for $1 each! This is great because in my opinion no nail polish is really worth $8 a bottle.  L.A colors nail polish is awesome because it's cruelty free and comes in lots of colors. I tried doing some fun designs using the ART DECO polishes. They work good if you're looking to add additional character to your nails. I do recommend adding a clear coat over the polish to make it longer lasting. 
I had the chance this evening to teach a some young ladies from my youth group at church as they develop interests in cosmetics to look for the cruelty free bunny logo's on cosmetic products. Teach them while they're young;) L.A colors sports the PETA bunny logo with the heart shaped bunny ears.
