beauty room teaser

When Jessika from polish insomniac was asked to share one of her favorite collections, she stared around her room, wondering how she would decide. Nail polish? How many? Which brand? Can’t show them all! Blush? Lipsticks? As her eyes wandered around her room, she silently started counting her pieces of IKEA storage. Yes, she thought, that’s a collection worth sharing.

What does Lola want? Let’s check with the Beauty Spotlight Team

lola bstWhen Helen from Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog was seeking inspiration for The Beauty Spotlight Team’s latest Favorites Series she thought long and hard about it, but it wasn’t until she was holding her office hours on campus that it hit her! As she sat and met with a countless number of her students she observed their beautiful and vibrant complexions, their barely-there makeup, and their general luminosity. Perhaps this is in part a function of attending a university in Southern California since fashions tend to be quite relaxed and casual (read: beach attire), and the weather tends to be warm. However, as she pondered their lovely faces, it occurred to her that her contribution to this new BST series should be inspired by, and in honor of, her students. Therefore, she selected her current favorite products that emphasized beautiful glowing radiant skin and minimalist barely-there makeup. Can you guess which products that she selected?
