One of the first skincare products I remember using is the Biore Pore Strips.  I remember trying them the first time as a pre-teen with my Mawmaw, and we were both hooked.  They’re tried and true, because they do exactly what they claim to do.  You can always find at least one box of them in my skincare drawer at all times.

When I had the chance to partner again with Biore, there wasn’t even a second thought because I so strongly believe in their products.  If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, then you saw what an amazing experience I had a couple of weeks ago when I visited the Wildlife Waystation with Biore.  Biore hosted a lovely brunch to launch the limited edition animal print Pore Strips…  Basically, it’s my dream come true, animal print x clean pores, lol!  The best part was that Biore made a donation to the Wildlife Waystation in honor of the launch, to help provide care for all of the sweet animals that live on the premises.  If you live in LA, I highly encourage you to research the Wildlife Waystation and see all of the incredible things they do every day to save the lives of so many animals.

Biore has a full array of products that will leave your skin feeling invigorated.  Biore Pore Strips help to deep clean your pores, removing buildup, dirt and oil which can cause blackheads to form.  (Try them in these chic limited edition leopard, zebra and giraffe animal prints – perfect for selfies!)  I’m also a huge fan of their Baking Soda Pore Cleanser and Self Heating One Minute Mask.  I try to do an at home spa night once a week.  For my spa nights, I love to first exfoliate with the Charcoal Pore Minimizer.  Next, I like to use the Self Heating Mask to get a deep clean.  I like to give special attention to the pores on my nose, since that’s where I see the most build-up, so I can’t forget to apply a Pore Strip.

Thank you to Biore for partnering with Hello Gorgeous for this post!

How to Highlight on the Go – Quick Morning Routine

How to highlight on the go by Angela Lanter - Hello Gorgeous

This post is sponsored by Revlon through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select.  While I was compensated to write a post about Revlon, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Probably the most sought after makeup look from real women is one that will work on an everyday basis.  A simple, beautiful look that can easily be recreated for work, school, church, any event really.  We girls have so much on our plates to keep us on our toes all day long, so an extensive makeup routine every morning shouldn’t be too complicated.

A simple every day look is created with a great BB cream, concealer, powder/bronzer, blush, brows, a little mascara and a lippie.  The one thing many women forget to include in their every day look is a highlighter.  I know, I know…  You don’t want even one more step to add to your morning routine.  Oh girlfriend, I’m here to tell you (and show you!) the perfect highlight can be done on the go and look positively glam.

You only need the Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick and about 60 seconds to get a gorgeous highlight and enhance your best features. This makeup stick allows for easy, fast and precise application…even on the go.  Here’s a quick step-by-step tutorial to get a natural highlight for the real woman.

First off, the Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick comes in two different shades: Gold Light and Pink Light.  The golden shade is a warmer color that beautifully complements bronzed makeup looks.  The pink shade is a cooler tone that’s beautiful on all skin tones.  I personally like to combine the two shades.

I like to apply my highlight as the final step.  Highlighting is used to bring out the high points of your face: cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, etc.  Using the highlight stick, I draw a line across highest point of my cheekbones and follow the natural curve of the bone structure.  If you need to find this point on your face, look at yourself straight on in the mirror.  Turn your head to one side and check out your profile.  See where the top of your cheekbone starts?  That’s where you should apply the product.  Use your finger or a damp makeup sponge to blend the product in place.  It builds well when layered to create a more dramatic look.  You can apply one stroke for a natural highlight or layer to your heart’s content, to have that highlight can be seen from outer space.  You do you, girlfriend!

For your nose, how and where you apply highlighter is dependent on what you want the outcome to be.  Generally, women want the look of a slimmer nose.  For this, apply a small amount of highlighter (I used just the edge of the stick) directly to the middle of the bridge of your nose.  You want a small line here because you’re going to blend it out.  Be sure not to apply to the tip of your nose, just the bridge.

Most of us want larger lips, right?  Right.  Applying a small amount of highlight to your cupid’s bow helps to create the illusion of a poutier pucker.

Lastly, I like to apply a small amount of highlighter to the inner corners of my eyes, my brow bone and my temples.  Highlighting the inner corners of your eyes can help to make you look more awake.  Now do you see why this step shouldn’t be skipped in your morning makeup routine?!

Call it highlighting or strobing…  Either way, I don’t feel fully made up without a little highlight to my face.  I love a dewy look and the Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick is the perfect item to get that look.  You can throw it in your makeup bag for a one-step highlight on the go.  It’s under $15 and budget friendly for all.

Alright, ladies.  Let’s see that highlight!

5 Fall Beauty Must-Haves

5 fall beauty tips angela lanter hello gorgeous

A hot cup of coffee and puppy snuggles…  Is there any better way to start a Fall morning?  Not in my book!  Mornings tend to be so rushed so I love to give myself a little extra time to take the first hour of the day a little slower.  Sometimes a slower start makes for a more peaceful day, especially when the weather is cooling down.

Your beauty regimen should change, just like your wardrobe, with the seasons.  As we prepare to head into colder temps, we need to take a good look at our daily beauty routine and see what steps and products need to be updated.  Here are five beauty steps I like to incorporate every Fall and Winter.

Christie Brinkley Bliss face and body exfoliator fall beauty tips angela lanter hello gorgeous

1. Exfoliation

I’m huge into exfoliation all year.  With colder temperatures comes being exposed to heat from furnaces and fires as well as hot water, all in a desperate attempt to stay warm.  The warmth is necessary and oh-so-good in those freezing cold moments, but it definitely wreaks havoc on our skin.  Skin gets dried out and may even start to crack.  The solution?  Remove that dead skin.  You should be exfoliating your face and body at least weekly to keep the flakes away.  If you’re like me, and want to keep your skin glowing all year long, try this daily exfoliator from Christie Brinkley.  For an all-out spa night at home, this Bliss Hot Salt Scrub is positively divine.

2. Moisturizing

You must follow up exfoliation with moisture.  I believe the most under-moisturized and forgotten parts of the body are the neck and décolleté.  We so often forget to continue the treatment on our faces, down to our neck and chest area.  This moisture treatment from Christie Brinkley is especially for those under-loved areas.

3. Fresh Skin

Beautiful, fresh skin is always in season.  This four pack of Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponges is under $20 and will keep your makeup application flawless all season long.  This Bliss “Stay”cation Long Wear Foundation paired with Cargo’s HD Pressed Powder will have your skin looking seriously flawless this Fall.  Both products provide coverage while allowing your natural glow to shine through.  But, if you’re like me, you still want to glow (aka your highlight game to be on point) so top this duo off with my go-to daily highlighter, theBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter.

4. Neutral Eyes

Okay, okay…  I love neutral eyes every day of my life.  I especially love neutral eyes during Fall because, let’s be honest, Fall has officially been dubbed the, “Dark/Bold Lip Season.”  There’s a time and a place for everything.  But wearing a dark, bold lip with a bold cat eye every single day of the season is not ever going to happen for me.  Wearing a dark, bold lip with a neutral eye is the perfect way to balance everything out.  Don’t get me wrong, there will be plenty of bold eye/bold lip moments for me, just not every day.  This Love Your Selfie palette from PUR Cosmetics has a great selection of matte and shimmer neutral shades for Fall.

5. Statement Lashes

Last but not least, lashes.  Statement lashes are show stopping.  That’s all there is to it.  The Lorac PRO Fiber Mascara packs a super voluminous punch to your eyelashes.

All of the products used are available at Kohl’s.  Kohl’s is not only the place for everyday Fall fashion but also has everything to meet all of your beauty needs.  They have a huge selection of products to refresh your Fall beauty regimen.  I have loved shopping at Kohl’s for years because of their everyday low prices, Kohl’s Cash (duh!) and awesome sales events.  Kohl’s invites you to finish your look with beauty by getting Everyday Runway Ready” with their prestige beauty brands!  Shop beauty now at www.kohls.com/beauty.
