City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

One of my favorite beauty brands has now taken on the title of blogger after launching the Smashbox Blog last week. The site will be packed with pro artist tips & tricks, celebrity gossip, runway recaps, VIP events and new product innovations.

In celebration of the blog launch, the brand will be giving away a beauty suitcase packed with $500 of Smashbox Cosmetics plus a canvas beach tote from Allure Magazine. Simply post your favorite beauty tip on the blog by Wednesday April 14th and you’ll be automatically entered to win.

You can also sign up for Smashbox in your inbox, where you’ll receive tips, free gifts and product lights straight to your email.

Our favorite Smashbox products? Photofinish Foundation Primer to help create a smooth and even surface for makeup application and Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer to cover up those pesky dark circles.

Our prize-winning beauty tip? Less is more! Unless you’re competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race pick an area to focus on (eyes that pop or a bright lip for example) and stick to it. Remember that makeup is used to enhance your natural beauty!
