Multi-tasking Makeup from Three Custom Color Specialists.

Anything that can help cut down my morning makeup routine is a huge help. I am always looking for products that can pull double-duty. And some of these great products from Three Custom Color Specialists perform triple-duty.

Copper Eye Shadow ($19.50 single, $15 refill)
This sultry, shimmering shadow gives a warm, sunny glow wherever it’s applied. Do you have blue or green eyes? Copper will brighten them and make them sparkle! You can even use Copper Eye Shadow on the lips with a clear lip gloss or all over the face as a shimmering bronzer.

Brow Powders
($19.50)
These finely-milled brow powders are available in 6 different shades. In addition to enhancing and filling in the eyebrows, they can also be used as a matte eye shadow for a rich, smokey look or as a cake eye liner.

Beige Crème to Powder Blush
($20.50)
A lovely blush in it’s own right (the perfect blush for redheads and the ideal nude for fair-medium skin tones), but Beige Crème to Powder Blush can be used on the lips with a top layer of Crystal Clear Lip Gloss. Or, use it alone on the lips for a soft, powdery lip veil.

Clarifier Pencils
($14.00)
Used on the inner rim for the eye, this pencil widens, brightens and erases glassiness. You can also wear Dark Clarifier under the brow to define and highlight the arch.  The Clarifiers also make great spot concealers and lip color correctors too.

Estee Lauder Super Flight Creme.

If you are traveling at all by air this Summer, listen up. You see, when you fly the friendly skins, the air is not that friendly to your skin. The extenuating circumstances that can cause dryness and travel-stressed skin due extreme humidity levels, dry cabin air and jet lag can take its toll on skin and cause it to become dry, uncomfortable – unhealthy. Not a good thing.

While there are a great number of travel friendly (sized) products out there, I had yet to find any that were created soley for this purpose, until now.

Estee Lauder just introduced Super Flight Creme Continuous Hydration for Face and Super Flight Creme Continuous Hydration for Eyes - available exclusively in airports and duty-free shops. These both are beautifully packaged in a portable carrying case – the perfect size for any carry-on that meets current U.S. security size restriction. The powerful duo offers “flight insurance” for global frequent flyers, keeping skin super hydrated in the face of low cabin humidity and jet lag. These moisturizing products last eight hours and will leave all stepping off the plane looking visibly rested and radiant.

CONTINUOUS HYDRATION FOR FACE
A lightweight, non-greasy, fast absorbing gel-cream. Formulated with Algae Extract and Hyaluronic Acid, a highly effective moisture magnet, as well as a powerful complex of anti-irritants including Glucose and Glycine to calm and visibly soothe the skin. This powerful combination enables skin’s appearance to better recover from long flights and the effects of travelling through multiple time zones.

CONTINUOUS HYDRATION FOR EYES
A feather-weight, non-greasy gel crème that absorbs into skin leaving it silky smooth, soft and protected. Contains a unique revitalizing complex to soothe and strengthen the delicate skin around the eye. Skin looks vibrant, less puffy and the appearance of dark circle is dramatically diminished.

Alos, be sure to check out Estee Lauder’s new informational duty free web-site is printed on the packaging so that, no matter where in the world you are, you can easily learn more about other Estee Lauder duty free products and discover new duty free beauty exclusives and get helpful travel tips.
