Ok guys….we are so in love with these photos from Samantha Glumac Photography that were taken this winter in Brainerd MN. Our lovely model is my beautiful daughter-in-love Elli and my amazing, handsome son Chayse. Yes, I’m a little biased and rightfully so….I think they are the most debonair couple around:)

My sister crocheted these exquisite flower gloves for our shoot. Crocheted wedding dresses, gloves and other wedding accessories are quite the big deal in wedding fashion….

Why Priia Cosmetics?

The art of creating pure wholesome acne safe cosmetics….all made for you with love…by Kelley from Priia Cosmetics.

  1. First, PRIIA manufactures ALL of its cosmetic products (except brushes) BY HAND. Unlike many other companies, we do not buy products from giant cosmetic labs and stock pile them. We do not have automated production lines. Do we have professional equipment to help us? Yes, of course. We’re not using mortars and pestles🙂  However, hand-crafting these products is an ART form and it’s laborious. It takes time, patience and skill to get them to look like they’ve come off of an assembly line. PRIIA’s products will remain a hand-crafted product no matter how much we grow. I NEVER want to turn into a giant cosmetics conglomerate. If that means I have to hire 100 people to hand-pour concealers for you, then so be it. Makeup that won't clog pores
  2. Hand-crafting products that are not only 100% acne-safe but also natural means that we are limited to the ingredients we can use. This means we may NEVER have some of the fancier-type of cosmetic products on the market or some of the colors they typically have (i.e. bright reds, etc.). I’m OK with that and I won’t ever compromise my formulating philosophy no matter how many people ask me for a ‘true red’ lipstick or silicone-based primer.

  3. We make smaller batches (50-100pcs) in order to ensure quality control. Most cosmetics labs make thousands of pieces at a time and then they go and sit in a warehouse until the product is ordered. We don’t do this. You can bet that the products you are receiving from us were just made within 3-5 days or less of placing your order.

We here at Captivating-Beauty love Priia cosmetics. This makeup line is one of the most amazing cosmetic lines that we’ve had the privilege of offering our clients and that we’ve personally used and will continue to use.

It’s pure, it stays on all………day, it’s 100% acne safe, it’s for all ethnicity’s, it offers amazing high pigmented colors and it’s beautiful.

Thank you Kelley for offering this high quality line for all of us makeup lovers to enjoy

How to Brighten Up a Dull Looking Complexion

   pretty lady in pink

As brides know one of the fastest ways to freshen and brighten up any complexion is to apply a beautiful shade of pink on the apples of the cheeks.

I usually apply my normal blush which is the Priia Vacation in a Jar then I apply the Priia Poppy on the apples of my cheeks.  This brings a pretty, vibrant flush to my cheeks and makes me look a little more alive especially during the dry, winter months .

If you have been using the same blush color every day for years, step into the new year by trying something new, something to bring a pretty, brightening, refreshing look to your skin.

Who doesn’t desire to look instantly refreshed.

This bride came all the way from New York and her groom from New Zealand. Both sides of the family were delightful. Honestly, she was a hoot to work with. She desired an extreme smokey eye and loved her look. Her hair turned out just the way she wanted it….What a fun day we had working with her.

Thank you  Lauren for these amazing photos.

The Beauty of Priia 100% Acne Safe Makeup

Winter Beauty with Priia @ Nature's Genesis


Testimony’s are coming in right and left over this makeup line…here are a few…

Love your foundation!! Please don\’t ever stop making it, or the shades they come in.  Used to be strictly Youngblood for full coverage, but your stuff is far superior, without the ashey, muddled and high sheen appearance that Youngblood was giving me. I think their formulation has changed over the years, sadly. Please don\’t compromise your formulas!!!  Side note – love my foundation application brush I ordered from you – did not realize how awful a brush I was using until I felt the extreme difference in softness and gentleness in the brush you offer. Thanks for providing such awesome products, truly!

Mother about her daughter – My daughter told me after an 12 hr day with it on, she felt like she still looked fresh and she did not itch! She never put the itching with bare minerals or Youngblood loose minerals link together until I asked when she was sweating, if she itched. She replied with a shocked “NO”! Is that why? !

17 yr old, leave saying she was obsessed with the mineral foundation.
