I have an exciting announcement to make! For the past few months I have been working to help curate a collection of the best beauty products and brands I have come across during my time as a beauty lover for the site Bluebird Bath and Beauty. Devoted to finding the best soaps, bath products, and beauty must-haves, Bluebird Bath and Beauty has everything to pamper you from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep. Inspired by her travels abroad and encounters with exotic and luxurious bath and beauty products, Katie Fontana - the mastermind behind the site - was inspired to create a collection of her favorites and make them available domestically. You will find everything from bath melts to konjac sponges to the silkiest of soaps - many of which focus on containing natural and organic ingredients.
Recognizing that the indulgence didn't have to end after bathing, Katie wanted to create a makeup collection that embodied the same sense of pampering. That's where I came in! I combed through my archives to find the products and brands I have loved the most, and sought out new, sometimes seldom-heard-of brands to make sure I was picking the best. While I will never quit my conquest to try, and report on, new brands and products, being granted the task of forming a collection of must-haves has made me realize that there is luxury to be had in finding the perfect set of products for you. I hope that if you decide to peruse the collection, you find the same!
Another thing I am so excited about is that I got the opportunity to create tutorials showing you how to use some items from the collection. Currently, the Bluebird YouTube Channel has a few videos showing you how to perfect some basic, yet essential techniques - from face shaping to lip looks. I'm not done making them yet, so please subscribe if you are interested in seeing more!
Whether you are a steadfast reader, or joining Making Up the Midwest for the first time, I want to thank each and every one of you for your readership, viewership, and support!
