OnPoint! Beauty | Holiday Finds {Festive Nail Colors}

OnPoint! Beauty | Holiday Finds {Festive Nail Colors}


Hello, Lovelies! This week I am spotlighting my favorite nail colors for this holiday season.
Of course, every Christmas calls for a dashing red.  I am in love with Gwen Stefani’s Holiday Collection from OPI.  My favorite red is definitely Fashion A Bow! It is super bright and fun >>> perfect for holiday parties!
Let’s face it, I’m pretty boring when it comes to nail colors.  99.9% of the time I am wearing a neutral color on my nails.  So, naturally I had to share my favorite neutral for the season >>>> the winner is Ballroom Dance by Essie.  It’s almost white, but has just a hint of a pink tint.
For the more sophisticated lady, I think a deep red is always a staple.  My pick is An Affair in Red Square by OPI. It’s a deep red with just a touch of luster.  Perfect for parties and still appropriate for work.
Last but not least, I think it’s fun {every now and then} to wear an unexpected color.  This season’s top choice>>>>> Christmas Gone Plaid.  Also from the Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection, this color is deep evergreen.  Understated, yet different.  I might try this one in a couple of weeks!!
Feel free to share your favorite holiday nail color by posting a pic on Instagram #OnPointHolidayNails.

OnPoint! Beauty | Holiday Beauty Finds {ON-THE-GO}

OnPoint! Beauty | Holiday Beauty Finds {ON-THE-GO}
There is no such thing as being over-prepared.  That’s way I always carry these essential beauty products with me wherever I go.  I recommend purchasing a mini cosmetic bag that can easily fit inside your purse.  That way you can keep all of your beauty essentials in one place and always have them in tow no matter how busy your day gets.
Tip: This post is a continuation of my HOLIDAY BEAUTY FINDS series and it is a great gift idea! Don’t know what to get your BFF, but know all of her fav beauty products? Create a customized ON-THE-GO beauty bag. Here are a few things to help you get started….
{1} NYX Lip Primer – This super affordable lip primer keeps your lip color in place all day long; however, if you’re running late to a dinner meeting it might come in handy for a little touch up!
{2} Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Moisturizer – This is one of my favorite moisturizing products from the Kiehl’s line.  A combination of cocoa butter and sesame oil this moisturizer will keep your hands from getting dry and cracked.  A must-have for these cold winter months.
{3} Josie Maran Whipped Body Butter – Yes, I carry two moisturizers.  This one is a little more fragrant than the other {I love it in Lavender}.  The argan oil is super healing and leaves your skin feeling velvety soft without leaving behind a greasy film.
{4} NYX Cosmetics HD Photo Concealer – I’ve used this concealer in previous posts, but it is definitely one of my favorites.  This formula is concentrated enough to cover blemishes and dark circles without leaving your skin looking cakey or overdone.  I carry this with me because you never know when you might need a touch-up and this trumps having to carry around a full bottle of foundation.
{5} L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara – I swear by this mascara.  It creates fuller, longer lashes with just a few coats.  And it’s buildable so I can add a few more coats later in the day without it flaking off or clumping.  If I had to pick only one item to walk out the door with everyday it would be this mascara!! <3
{6} Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens – I have fairly oily skin so blotting papers are a lifesaver for me.  I mainly use them when my t-zone gets a little shiny.  They soak up any extra oil without leaving my skin looking blotchy.
{7} Laura Mercier Lip Glace – I love this lip gloss; however, any lip gloss would work for your on-the-go beauty bag.  There’s nothing worse than introducing yourself to someone and having dry lips.  I recommend keeping a nude or clear lip gloss with you.  That way no matter what you’re wearing, your lip gloss will not throw off your look.
{8} Juicy Couture Perfume – Juicy Couture recently expanded their line of Juicy Couture fragrances; however, I still love the original.  This rollerball is the perfect size! Also, spritzing a little of your favorite perfume will have you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your next obstacle.  I am always reminded of a quote by the fabulous and iconic Coco Chanel – “A who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” So, start spritzing! :)

This upcoming holiday season I will feature some of  my favorite beauty finds – and BONUS these items are perfect christmas gifts for your fabulous friends or yourself. ;) Today I am shining the spotlight on one of my favorite companies, LUSH Cosmetics.
Tea Tree Water: Tea Tree water is clarifying – it keeps skin clear of blemishes and balances skin tone.   This product is most effective with oily and combination skin.  Also, this formula is alcohol-free which is non-irritating and perfect for sensitive skin.
Fresh Farmacy Cleanser: This calamine based cleansing bar is great for the most sensitive skin types.  In addition to calamine, this formula includes lavender, rose, and tea tree to soothe and clear up blemishes.
Bubble Bars {Candy Mountain, Holly Golightly, Star Light Star Bright}: Bubble bars are hands-down the best creations in the LUSH portfolio!  They soothe and moisturize, leaving your skin feeling soft and fabulous!  How to use – crumble under running warm water.  A little goes a long way so use sparingly on your first try.  For best use, it is suggested to keep them in a cool, dry place.

Fitness Friday – The Killer Lower Abs Workout







Plank {60 seconds}
– Hold a plank for 60 seconds.  Your shoulders should be directly over your wrists,           tummy tight, thigh bones rolled in.

Russian Twist {40 reps}
– Sit and hold your legs at tabletop. Using a weighted ball or dumbbell, twist your body from left to right.  Try to touch the weight to the floor on every twist.

Lower Abs Pulse Ups {20 reps}
– Put your legs straight up and using your lower abs, pulse up.  Your feet should be flexed, like a string is on the bottom of your shoes pulling you up toward the ceiling.  For support, place your hands on your lower back.

Block Exchange {12 reps}
- I am stealing this move from my yoga routine. :)  Taking a yoga block place it between your shins.  Laying down, extend your arms over head.  Lift up (shoulder blades off the ground), take the block from your shins then go back down with the block in your hands.

Toe Touches {30 reps}
- Lay on your back and put your legs straight up. By pulsing up, touch your toes.  Try not to let your shoulder blades touch the ground.

OnPoint! Beauty | Why you need to use an eyeshadow primer…

OnPoint! Beauty | Eyeshadow Primer

Eye shadow primer gives shadow STAYING POWER.  It helps shadow adhere to the eyelid and stay in place.  It prevents creasing and smudging – also, allowing your look to stay longer.

Primers come in different shades in order to blend with different skin tones.  However, white primer is often used to make eyeshadow shades appear more vibrant. Primer pulls pigment out of shadows intensifying color.

How do you apply primer?
– Smooth a small amount of eyeshadow primer to the entire lid – try to get as close to the lash line as possible.
– Use a concealer brush to blend evenly
– Let the eye shadow primer set for a minute or two before applying eye shadow
