Giveaway: Dermablend Celebrates Its 30-Year Anniversary

I've never been a big fan of foundations for everyday use, but I can NOT go a day without wearing concealer. Since my college years, I've worn Dermablend concealers to hide blemishes and diminish the appearance of dark under-eye circles.

Not only does Dermablend conceal minor imperfections, but it is known for its outstanding coverage of unsightly scars, tattoos and various skin ailments. This year the popular makeup brand is celebrating its 30-year anniversary. In honor of making us beautiful for 3 decades, I'm giving away a fabulous professional brush set (includes each of the brushes below) that will help you create a flawless complexion. (a $125 value!)



Concealer Brush, $22


Face & Body Brush, $40


Foundation Brush, $30


Powder Brush, $32

Simply leave a comment telling me what's your favorite makeup trend for the summer season and a winner will be randomly selected and announced later in the week.

I love the deep oranges and aqua shadows with a nude lip I've been seeing. I'm a sucker for color and well cared for skin!

My favorite trend is bright lips! I haven't found my perfect color, but I'm still on the hunt!

Shawnta said...

Light & easy going. Nothing too heavy. A touch of mascara & a dab of lip gloss & I'm good. And of course, sunscreen.

I want to try a tinted moisturizer or soft bronzer for times when I want a more polished look but still want to keep it light. Does anyone have suggestions on a great tinted moisturizer or bronzer?

I'm digging the crackle and spatter nail polishes!

Kath said...

crackled nail polish!

@Shawnta - THE BEST BRONZER IS IMAN'S "AFTERGLOW." I'm so in love with it right now. I've tried so many, but this is a cut above the rest!

MrsSpontaneity said...

I am all about highlighting, especially in the summer. Add a bronzer and your are on point!

Katrina said...

Tinted Moisturizer and Bronzer! Oh, and I never leave the house without Mascara. Thanks for the opportunity

Blair said...

hot pink lipstick, of course

As a Freelance MUA these brushes would be perfect for my kit. Ive heard nothing but great things about Dermablend. Everyone knows that application is key and these brushes will def do the job!

I'm all about sexy loose waves. It's a great casual and going out look. I just started using Sultra Bombshell curling iron and I'm in LOVE. It's an actual curing rod with no clip as to avoid those unsightly creases you often get while curing your hair. Give those VS models a run for their money...

The bronzer is where it's at. I'm a minimalist when it comes to makeup so I can wear only thus in the summer & get the warmth & glow I need.

Karla-Auntie Freda is in love with the new Salon Effects nail strips. They really do last 10 days and beyond. I do go and get a manicure but with no nail polish applied. I come home and put on my nail strips and "voila" I'm good to go for at least ten days. I usually don't promote items but this one is too good not to share. My nails will look fabulous always.

I'm loving the pop of color. The bright pink lip, or emerald eye. Got to bring the bright for summer.

I am loving doing bold color eyeliners. I even want to rock a yellow one.

BGG, I love what you do!

With is being so hot and it isnt even summer, I am loving the natural glow look by using SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH BRONZING and PHOTO FINISH PRIMER it is great by itself, under press powder, or foundation. and a nude lip.

With the scorching sun out to stay, a must is MD SolarSciences Quick Dry with SPF 40 -- they have great tinted face gel as well.

Once the SPF is taken care of, I am happy to sport peachy lips, sun-kissed cheeks, and some mascara.

Fave summer trend is bronzer- i love how it enhances my skintone.

My fingers are crossed :-)

Nicole Rogers said...

My favorite trend this summer is big shapely brows. That's right ladies take those thin arched eyebrows and let them grow back in! In the meantime between time use mabelline's brow fantasy to apply brow mascara for definition and pencil for shape! Thicker brows can give you back a more youthful appearance you've been longing for! To hide the hairs growing back in, use Dermablend to conceal the brow bone until the hairs are back and ready to be groomed properly.

I'm loving a natural glow-,bronzy,orange, or pink blushes and neutral eyes/lip gloss. I am currently utilizing my urban decay naked pallet when I travel. I am also trying out smashbox tinted moisturizer instead of heavy foundations.

Stacie said...
