BITE Beauty

After perusing Sephora.com, I came across a new makeup line called BITE Beauty. With it’s sleek black packaging, BITE Beauty is a collection of lip products made from all natural and food grade ingredients that help improve the appearance of aging. 
BITE Beauty makes a good point: your lips age too, and it’s just as important to take care of them as well as the rest of your face. BITE Beauty’s secret weapon is Red Wine Resveratrol (a powerful antioxidant found in red wine) which is found in all of their products. A fun fact: each Bite lipstick has the antioxidant equivalent of five glasses of red wine. 
As a makeup artist, I am always on the lookout for new and innovative products that not only have lasting power, but are good for your skin. If you’re interested in trying Bite Beauty out, check out my top three picks below.

High Pigment Matte Pencil- $24
This pencil gives a long lasting, matte color using all natural products that are “good enough to eat” (literally)

Superfruit Butter- $18 
Right now this is only available via the Spring Cleaning Trio on the Sephora site. The Superfruit Butter contains concentrated whole superfruits for antioxidant age-repair. This all-natural butter is also scent-free. It comes in Acai, Blueberry, Cranberry and Pomegranate. Use it on lips, cuticles – anywhere skin could benefit from a super boost of antioxidants and intensive conditioning.” YES PLEASE!

Vitamin Gel- $18
This yummy vitamin gel is made with 5mg of vitamin C and 100% pure essential oils, helping to soften your lips, while the red wine Resveratrol improves your mood and smooths fine lines. Comes in Blood Orange, Ginger, Pink Grapefruit, Mint and Pineapple. This sounds weird but I would totally mix the Mint and Pineapple together!

Neon Shatter Nails for Summer

Yay! I’m finally back with a new nail art tutorial. This one is a neon, “summer” take on OPI’s Black Shatter polish look. I had totally forgotten about the Shatter until I saw it sitting all by itself in my drawer. I’ve always been in love with neons and now that I have a semi-tan and summer is on it’s way, I decided to rock them. The problem with neons is that to get them to show up as vibrantly as they look in the bottle, you have to apply at least four coats. I eliminated that by applying white polish on the nails first, helping the neons pop. Remember that Shatter works best when it is applied very thinly. If you put it on too thick, the Shatter won’t crack as much and will hide most of the color underneath. 
Happy Watching!
