Learning how easy & portable Susan Posnick Cosmetics are.

one.) Susan Posnick lipstick in Miami is the perfect shade of coral. The bright pop of orange displays just how excited we are to get out of town, and the excellent formulation keeps lips uber soft!
I feel pretty confident in my abilities to highlight and contour with subtlety using powder products, but until recently, I did not feel the same about liquid and cream contouring products.
Every time I would try to contour with any formulas other than powder, I felt like my makeup looks way too caked on. While I think a heavy highlight and contour has great applications for photography and can really transform the appearance of the face, I am more into enhancing the features about my face that I already like.
I recently came across ColorCorrect from Susan Posnick and discovered they were just what I needed to achieve the look I want.
These pencils are dual-ended and meant for concealing and brightening the under-eye area. I’m pretty loaded up on regular concealers, so I decided to repurpose them for highlighting and contouring.
The formula on these pencils is very creamy, and they provide a nice amount of coverage. Since they are so creamy, I’ve found that I have a good amount of time to blend before the product sets, which makes it ideal for contouring and highlighting. I’ve also found that if I get too heavy-handed with them, I can still blend them out pretty easily before I set everything with powder. This is HUGE to me because usually I have to go back in with more foundations to fix my mistakes, which only adds to that caked-on look…
Whether you’ve been dealing with acne your entire life, or you woke up this morning with a rare but annoying breakout, the feelings of helplessness still exist. How does one cover up their zits without making them worse? We asked makeup artists, dermatologists, and estheticians to find out the ever-elusive answer to that very question.
Priceless skincare advice for the acne-prone, right this way…
The worst mistake you can make while trying to cover up a pimple is to try and pop it first, advises Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, founder and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care. It’s better to let it run its course and use acne-fighting products containing salicylic acid to spot treat. Moreover, Dr. Hadley King, MD, board certified dermatologist at Skinney Medspa points out, “This usually increases the inflammation, which will only make it more difficult to cover, plus it will now be oozing, and that’s impossible to cover. Picking also increases the risk of infection, hyperpigmentation, and scarring, and it will make the pimple take longer to heal.” “When you’re in a bind, though, make sure to use oil-free and noncomedogenic makeup to cover,” says Susan Posnick, makeup artist and founder of Susan Posnick Cosmetics.
As much as we love experimenting with newest makeup trends, there is one downside: taking it off! Who hasn’t tried to completely remove mascara in fear of also taking every last eyelash off, too?
After trying one too many “makeup removing” products that simply didn’t get the job done, we went to an expert for the best way to properly wash off cosmetics without doing more harm than good. Makeup artist and founder of Susan Posnick Cosmetics, Susan Posnick is here to provide a step-by-step guide to properly removing your makeup at night.
At Susan Posnick Cosmetics, we love our lips. They are one of the most beautiful and distinctive features a woman has, so it is our responsibility to take good care of them. We could go on about our gorgeous Susan Posnick shades of lipstick, and the fantastic moisturizing and hydrating benefits our tubes hold, but good lip care starts even before that.
First, we hydrate. Water is oh so important to keep our lips soft and kissable, and as an added bonus, by drinking more water on a daily basis, your whole body will thank you!
Next, we exfoliate, as lips that tingle stay soft and smooth. Exfoliating your lips removes dead skin cells (yes, lips have them too!) and brightens up your natural lip color. This is easy to do every day by lightly brushing your lips with your toothbrush. For a deeper, feel-good exfoliation, use a lip scrub at least once a week. (See our monthly Posnick Pointer below for a fabulous, natural lip scrub recipe!)
Finally, we seal them with a kiss of our COLORESSENTIAL Lipstick; each shade represents an exciting city that inspires us to live beautifully!
In celebration of loving your lips, we have put together a beautiful Love Your Lips set just for this month. The set includes a COLORESSENTIAL Lipstick in the color of your choice, our universally flattering COLORDUO Lip Pencil in Nude/Rouge, and our Small Multi-Use Brush to apply your new colors. We are even including a free gift with purchase! Wear these beautiful shades alone or layer them for deeper tones.
Posnick Pointer: Keep your lips soft, supple and vibrant in color by exfoliating weekly! We like mixing together 1 tablespoon of sugar, some coconut oil and 1 drop of a favorite essential oil (peppermint and vanilla mixed is a personal favorite!) You can even add a dash of cinnamon for a natural plumping agent!

This month we were very excited to work with instagram makeup artist HayleyDollX to create a holiday-inspired makeup look using only our products.
This is what was used:
Baby it’s cold outside, making it time to don a cozy sweater and tall boots paired with warm-colored makeup colors like COLORME blush in Scarlett or Ginger; COLOREYEDEFINE in Jasper-Sandstone; and COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in London, NYC and Marrakesh.
The holidays are upon us, which means we need to carve out ample time for those we love. Although it’s a great time to stock up on holiday gifts with sales galore, there is nothing better than spending the holiday season talking and laughing with family and friends, food and a cup (or two) of hot chocolate, topped off with Baileys.
Most people would agree that one of the best & easiest ways to bring friends and family together is through food, and the holidays are no exception.
At my table, this year’s must haves will be roasted root vegetables, mashed potatoes and of course my family recipe for peppermint brownies.
Later in the evening when all is cleaned up and quiet, I always look forward to taking a step back to absorb all of the warmth in my home. It’s easy to be grateful when you take a moment to realize all that you have.
