88 Handbags Review

88 Handbags reached out to us for a collaboration. Of course we said yes. Who would not want to review a new purse. 88 Handbags is a vegan brand and no animal products are used. The founder of 88 is a life long vegetarian and believes that the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming.  https://www.88-eightyeight.com

The scientific names for the leather they use are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) PU. The company thinks it is better for the environment. Although more expensive 88 only uses PU in our bags.

88 develops all of our own custom hardware, again with a focus on the best way for the environment and not necessarily the cheapest way.

I have been trying to update my look lately, so what great way to do it by adding a new purse in a great color! So I got the Katie Medium Satchel in Cobalt.  The size of the bag is perfect for me and it is very roomy and the color is gorgeous!  The bag is not heavy when it is empty. I find that sometimes with some purses that they are very heavy even before you put anything in them. On the inside of the purse there are places for cell phone and other items.  My IPad fits into the purse nicely. I have a 9.7″ IPad and it fits.
The Katie has a snap closure and a zipper compartment in the center and small compartments along the side.

With the purse being “vegan leather” if you spill something on it, you can clean it of with a cloth.

So if you are looking to update your look add ing a new purse on a fun color is the way to do it.

I will be back to get another purse from 88 Handbags.

Applying Loose Mineral Foundation

Applying loose mineral foundation a problem for you? I hear it all the time I cannot apply loose mineral foundation or at my age I shouldn’t wear it. Well you can!! I am older and I still wear mineral foundation. You need to have a good skin care regime and do a prep before applying loose mineral foundation.

The first and foremost thing in applying loose mineral foundation is you have to get a good match. If the foundation is off, you will not feel right about the rest of your makeup. You also have to find the right formula, our has a few ingredients and go on smoothly with no tugging.  We will get into ingredients in another post. Also you have to have the correct brushes to apply the foundation. This all takes trial and error but when you find the right one, you will not go back to liquid!!  Applying loose mineral foundation is fast and easy to apply and lasts all day.

Here are a few tips on how to apply loose mineral foundation.

Tip a small amount into the lid of your container or a small dish or a minerals mate.
Take your  brush and push gently into the powder then swirl, lift, push and swirl again until the powder has disappeared from the lid. Give the brush a tap on the side of the lid to get rid of any excess powder.  The idea is not to have any sitting on the surface of the brush but pushed into the bristles.

Start applying by gently buffing the powder into your skin in small circular movements. You’ll be surprised at how far a small amount will go. Keep buffing until you have applied the powder to your whole face. I start in the center of my face and work out.
If you want to go over your face again because you feel that it needs a little extra, no problem. Just repeat the whole process.

We have a great selection of loose mineral foundation.  We also have samples under the sample section of our website.Applying Loose Mineral Foundation
