New Location and 1,250 fans on facebook

What an exciting week it has been! This past weekend was the Grand Opening of my new, larger, and brighter Mineral Love stand at my local market. It was a huge success! I'd like to thank everyone that came out to show their support, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of you in the future!

You can now find me in person at the very front of the market
every Saturday 7am-3pm and Sunday 7am-4pm at:

 North Point Plaza
 2401 N Point Blvd.
 Baltimore, MD 21222

Leading up to the opening, we had less than two weeks to fix a hole in the floor, paint the floor, fix the walls, hang multiple 4'x8' mirrors on the wall, create and hang signage, move showcases, paint the bottoms of showcases, set-up displays, and pretty-up the place. Tons of thanks goes out to my boyfriend, his brother, and his two friends for doing the heavy lifting for me. Great job guys!! It was a lot of hard work, but the result was soooo worth it:

This photo shows less than 1/4 of the store; there are 3 more showcases that are out of sight. I just adore it; it is so bright and spacious! Can't wait to snap more pictures to show you the rest of the space!

Well, if that wasn't exciting enough, I also happened to reach 1,250 fans on the Mineral Love facebook page! 

To celebrate, I'm giving away a $10 e-gift certificate to my Etsy shop- or for local customers, a credit for $10 to use in the new space towards any Mineral Love products!

Celebrity Inspired Makeup Tutorial - Alexis Bledel

We all loved her as Rory in Gilmore Girls. She was super cute in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Yes, I'm talking about Alexis Bledel!

She has such a natural, girl-next-door look on- and off-screen. Love it! It's such a fresh look for daytime.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Here's my version of Alexis' Natural Look, modeled by the beautiful Melissa. She's a Mineral Love user and fan that I had the pleasure of meeting this past weekend. :D Enjoy!

Eyes: Apply Chocolate Frosting on lid and into crease, slightly winging it up towards your temples at the outer edges. Apply Golden Girl to your brow bone for highlight, or for dark/deep skin tones use a shadow that is a little lighter than your skin color. Using a small angled liner brush, line the upper lash line using Anne (dark brown/black.) Finish the eyes with one coat of mascara on the upper lashes only.

Face: Use a lightweight foundation. (Melissa uses Mineral Love Mineral Foundation in the shade #1. Don't know what shade you are? Contact me for foundation samples at Complete your complexion with Ready, Set, Go! Finishing Powder.

Cheeks: Dust a peach shade of blush, like Peachy, along your cheek bones.
*Optional- Using the same brush, dip it into your Chocolate Frosting eyeshadow. This will be used to contour your face. To contour, take that brush and dust it directly underneath your cheekbones (in that little hollow where your teeth are) from basically your 'sideburn' area headed diagonally down towards your chin. However, don't go all the way to your chin; you want to stop about half way. Blend thouroughly (stay within that area and use tiny circlular motions with your brush to blend until you see no harsh lines.) This will make your cheekbones appear higher and add definition to your face.

Lips: Keep 'em simple! Use a peachy-pink lip gloss, like Peachy
If your lips are extra dry, use a lip balm first to soften. Layer the Peachy lip gloss (made with jojoba oil) over the balm to further moisturize, add shine, and give a hint of juicy color to your lips.

♥ ♥ Ta-da! A super pretty natural look inspired by Alexis Bledel. ♥ ♥

Here are some pictures by the beautiful Melissa:

If you try this tutorial for yourself, I'd love to see it! Head to and post some pictures! Don't be shy. ;)
