Femme Fetch: CK ONE Skin Illuminator
My approach to makeup has always been about releasing the glow within or at least looking as much like J.lo as possible. In steps the CK One Skin Illuminator from Calvin Klein to give you that undeniable glow. I am loving the big push from fashion to cosmetics taking place with a lot of the big design houses, e.g. Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein,etc. The entire CK One line is pretty solid and with some minor tweaking in the next few years, I think it could be a solid all around beauty resource for us all.
So let’s talk the CK One Skin Illuminator:
- 3 universally flattering shades (VERY FEMME!!!!)
- great on bare or made-up skin
- iridescent pearlescence (no shimmer/glitter overload)
- lightweight and long-wearing
- the packaging ( loose top makes it horrible for travel and squeezing it out sometimes gives way to much product.)
Apply the Illuminator right along the highs of the cheekbone and blend lightly with fingers or sponge. It really works wonders. The positive about this set of illuminators is that they truly work for everyone, I mean EVERYONE. What is even more great is the entire line has a good base of makeup to select from for most people. Rome was not built in a day, so I look forward to the expansion of the line.
Available at all Ulta locations and online!!!!
Femme Tip: Try the CK One Cream to Powder Bronzing or Blush Duo under the illuminator and get a super intense glow. Go from J.lo to Goddess Aphrodite on the beaches of Brazil!!! Trust Me.
Be Bold, Be Femme.

highqualityfashion: Prada FW 14 Backstage Femme Boy: Fresh skin and tons of mascara, so femme. ;-) Prada really channeled a modernized “Twiggy” look for their most recent show. A lot less effort, more wearable for daytime, but still wide eyed and youthful. To get a look like this, layer on your mascara with a slightly heavier hand. Go with two separate mascaras to create a thick, slightly clumped look. Put on the voulminizing mascara first, heavy on the lash line and follow with a mascara designed to lengthen with a more precise wand. Femme Fetches: Dior Show Blackout Benefit They’re Real Maybelline Big Eyes- comes with two wands and much more affordable Calvin Klein CK ONE Mascara -comes in 5 shades, works great as accents on tips of lashes for a pop of color Be sure to go with a black mascara for the full drama, navy and brown tones will work fine for a more subtle look especially with fairer skin tones.

Femme Fetch: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF30 -Dark Spot Correcting
I’m already a huge fan of tinted moisturizers, correcting creams, beauty balms, and any cosmetic aids assisting in fooling the world;Smashbox definitely feeds into this obsession. So let’s get to it.
- light, buildable coverage great for everyday
- great as primer under foundation
- a little goes a long way
- SPF!!!!! WE LOVE SPF!!!!
- dark spot correcting.
- matte/semi-matte finish
- 5 shades-the blend ability and light formula make the shades work for many, but us dark girls once again don’t get the benefit of this. Would love maybe a warmer,”Deep Dark” shade not just “Dark”.
Multi-taskers are the future of makeup and I believe Smashbox understands that more than most cosmetic brands. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream appears to fade discoloration slightly, but be sure to keep up a good skincare regimen also. Think of this product as an aid, NOT a solution.
Femme Fetch: NARS Illuminator
Loving my NARS Illuminator in the shade Laguna, especially for the summer. This stuff works great on the body and face. Decent amount of wear time but keep it in your purse for long days or nights. Best applied or at least blended with fingers.
Mix High &Low: Pair the Nars Illuminator of your choice with one of the Tango with Bronzing Powders from NYX Cosmetics. The powder will add a bit more dimension to your glow and also work to set the NARS Illuminator for longer wear.

Femme Fetch: Beauty For Real Lip Gloss
Totally loving this lipgloss and have been for the past few months. Super moisturizing, good color pay off, nice range of shades, and mirror with light built into the gloss. I am kinda obsessed. Look out for a video review soon with the lip gloss and cream cheek tint.
This stuff is really amazing, like I’m serious, check it out.
Still love the Maybelline XXL mascara. I have to be honest in saying that it’s probably my favorite mascara of all time. I find myself always repurchasing it. Perfect sized brush, primer for my lashes, and gives a nice dramatic look.
Femme Fetch: VS Pro Pout FX Lip Primer and Definer I am a fan of Victoria’s Secret makeup especially the VS Pro stuff. I really think the line excels with products intended to help you get the most wear and durability out of your makeup. The VS Pro Pout FX Lip Primer and Definer is an amazing product. Put simply, it works. The promise is to prevent smearing and feathering specifically when going for a fuller lipped look. If you tend to draw outside your natural lip line to get a bigger pout, you want this product. So Femme !!!
