Steal This: Black Friday + Foreo Luna…

This is one of the BEST Black Friday Deals I can think of. Black Friday + Foreo Luna is absolutely insane….you can save up to 30% by clicking here TOMORROW.   The deals change every HOUR and start at 8am PST/11am EST.  I have been wanting to get my hands on one of these for a while now so this is amazing!!

FOREO LUNA MINI Steal This:  Black Friday + Foreo Luna...

If you are not familiar with this little device…I am OBSESSED.  As you know, I am a long time Clarisonic user – BUT this seems like it would be GREAT for travel.  First of, you don’t have to charge this thing for 5 months AND you don’t need to buy replacement brushes. It is 100% antibacterial beaSo I am pretty sure this is a great option for me for travel. It comes in TWO sizes the Luna and the Luna Mini. This device is a 3-zone silicone-cleansing brush with more than 1,000 soft, flexible touch-points – thicker touch-points are intended for areas of oilier skin, and thinner touch points for more sensitive areas.  Silicone touch-points are resistant to bacteria buildup and do not harbor dirt and oil.  It is 100% waterproof with more than 300 uses from a single USB charge & comes with a 2-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty and 10-Year Quality Guarantee.

FOREO, the leader in beauty innovation, provides an all-in-one answer to cleansing and anti-aging needs. LUNA™ is a unique beauty solution that offers a completely new way to care for the skin. Its T-Sonic™ pulsation (transdermal sonic pulsations) technology refers to the 8,000 pulsations per minute, which are channeled through LUNA™’s soft, silicone touch points in a tapping motion.

These pulsations are directed across the skin’s surface, subsequently dislodging dirt and makeup from the pores in a completely gentle manner while in Cleansing Mode. Through the tapping motion that this technology produces, the skin can be cleansed deeply, yet gently, without the rotating or oscillating action of existing bristled devices that might irritate the skin or harm its elasticity due to their pulling and pinching effects. In addition to offering visible cleansing results for all skin types, LUNA™ also features an anti-aging surface on its reverse side that channels lower-frequency pulsations directly onto wrinkle-prone areas. Use of the LUNA™ Anti-Aging Mode provides a comfortable facial massage, which is well known to increase micro-blood circulation and relaxation of facial muscles. LUNA™ runs for two full minutes in Cleansing Mode before automatically switching to Anti-Aging Mode and is equipped with 8 customizable speeds.

The Rundown:

  • Deeply cleanses the skin and is more effective than manual cleansing
  • Removes 99.5% off all dirt and 98.5% off all makeup residue from the skin
  • T-Sonic™ technology’s gentle tapping motion offers a deep, yet gentle cleanse that is suitable for all skin types & skin tones
  • Only device on the market that utilizes medical grade silicone, delivering 35X more hygienic properties than traditional nylon cleansing bristles. These silicone touch points are compatible for use with all standard nonabrasive cleansers, gels and creams.
  • 100% waterproof and provides up to 450 uses from a single charge & comes with a Two-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty and 10-Year Quality Guarantee. Does not require a change of brush head.


  • The LUNA™ is available in three different models that each have a distinct cleansing surface to suit specific skin types.
  • The LUNA™ in white is for users with Ultra Sensitive Skin, the LUNA™ in pink is for those with Sensitive/Normal Skin, and the LUNA™ in blue is for those with Combination Skin.
  • LUNA™ retails for $199 and is currently available at and LUNA™

Happy Thanksgiving from TMG!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!  No fried turkey this year – only four of us for dinner so I have something smaller in mind.  Thanksgiving is all about family and I wanted to wish my TMG family the most special of holidays. So just a quick note to say Happy Thanksgiving! I also wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you that visit The Makeup Girl daily and how much I love interacting with you here and on my other social channels.  I am very thankful for the success of the site and I owe all of that to the readers that come here everyday and talk about it to their friends, co-workers, and family.

Thanksgiving Happy Thanksgiving from TMG!!!

I am not doing a whole bunch of “black friday” gift guides this year because I think everything has started to get TOO commercial.  There are even some malls/stores that are actually OPEN today….no thank you.  This day is about being THANKFUL for what you have and spending time with your family, not about shopping.  So in that spirit – I will post one or two deals that I think are worthy of a little day after Thanksgiving shopping (everybody likes to save money, right??) and a few Cyber Monday deals…but that’s it.

In the meantime, here is a little makeup look for you to try for dinner today (because everyone needs to come to the table dressed for dinner).  I did this look a while back but it is one that is always pretty timeless

The Rundown:

I always start with a cream shadow base – because it is long lasting and crease resistant (creasing is the enemy of this whole look).  You want the eye to look clean and polished – very french girl.  Then I apply the liner all the way across at the base of my lashes and build it up so that it appears thicker.  This look is almost entirely Bobbi Brown….and the pic was taken WAY back before i got my brows done!  Look how thin they are LOLOL.

The Rundown:

Bobbi Brown Longwear Cream Shadow in Beach Bronze I love love love love this shadow.  Perfect if you have no time to do touch-ups and you just want to have a nice clean look.

Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate shimmer ink.  You do need to use an eyeliner brush for this and it takes a steady hand but once you get the hang of it the look is great.  I am wearing a golden brown shade here so the look is much softer than your average black liner look.

Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara for buildable volume and seperation – this mascara is FABULOUS.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose I love the GLOW it gives!

NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm.  LOVE this shade….it looks super light in the tube but this shade really is flattering on just about everyone.

So there you have it, a quick EASY holiday look in just a few steps!  Big hugs to all of you!  Take the time out to hug your family….I’m hugging mine today

Stay Pretty!!
