Fashion Friday - Focus on Makeup with e.l.f. coupon code & how to get smokey eyes

I first met e.l.f. (eyes lips face) cosmetics at last year's Blogher conference. After a few freebies I was sold. Well, I wasn't sold, I was bought? No wait. That doesn't sound right. I was freebie-d?

Whatever - the fact is that a free sample can go a long way to brand loyalty. Not because it's free. But because the product you get to sample for free is actually really great!

e.l.f. Coupon Code

Right now and through September 16, 2010 you can get  20% off any e.l.f makeup purchase with code: TAKETWENTY

Not only that but I see a great sale going on at e.l.f. right now so, while it's not entirely free, you can sample e.l.f. for a very low price! And, it's already affordable. This makes it, well, freebie-ish!

Need Help Applying Makeup?

These days if I swipe some powder across my nost (e.l.f. mineral powder of course) and brush on some mascara I'm lucky. But for the nights I want to be a little more dramatic I turn to...Carmindy.

I love the show What Not to Wear and Carmindy's makeup tips always seem a) realistic and b) totally do-able. I've been trying to take notes during the show but really, isn't it easier just to buy the book, The 5-Minute Face.

That Carmindy - she knows we moms barely have 5 minutes so she's come up with easy steps to get us looking our best with makeup but also - she has product recomendations for high and low budgets! For example, do you have combination skin? You can splurge on Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk, or get great results with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (my personal favorite).

BlogHer10 Highlights even in Low Lighting (part 1)

Last week I hopped on the #smores train to Blogher and got my groove on in NYC. Here are just some highlights from the trip:

30 Rock Center - I got to visit with my friend Mark who is moving out of NYC and do something fun and touristy! We went to the top of 30 Rockefeller Center and caught a beautiful view of New York.

The next morning was the start of the conference and Bruce Jenner was there with Tropicana. I nabbed a quick interview with him and got some great advice on....raising daughters! Yes, the Kardashian sisters are a handful but Bruce is a survivor. More to come in another post on that.

The one off-site event that I was most excited for was Getting Gorgeous. Hosts Audrey McCLelland and Vera Sweeney threw quite a swag bash with lots of help from their family and sponsors. One highlight was meeting makeup and hair stylist to the stars, Kim Baker at the elf booth. She said Tom Cruise is the NICEST guy. And she made my eyes look, well, gorgeous!

Me, my eyes, and the fabulous Kim Baker

It was a great weekend to reconnect with the friends I've made at past conference, and to make new friends. More to come!
