You know when you go to the gym or go on a hike or it is just plain hot outside? Makeup is not always appropriate and/or does not always want to stay on that pretty face of yours. I have a makeup routine that is foul proof, covers up any imperfections, protects me from the sun, and gives me that confident glow to conquer the world, or just ya know...go to the grocery store.
First, I use my dry shampoo by Klorane (note to self: buy more dry shampoo) because ladies, its a no shower day too. Hey, no judgement, we all do it. I let it sit and do its magic in my hair as I do the rest of my makeup, and then I comb it though. Next, I apply sunscreen. I use the pretty orange bottle by Clarins. It is oil free and wonderful. I spray it on anything that is not covered. Today it was my arms, back and neck. After applying sunscreen, I apply one of the above BB or CC creams with spf on my face, and today I did not know which one to choose, so I mixed together Pacifica, Supergoop, and Coola. My favorite one is the Pacifica tube, because of the high coverage. Next comes eyes, all I do is apply my Estee Lauder eye primer and a touch of water proof mascara, today I wore one by Lancome. Eyebrows are next of course, can't forget those. I brush on my Anastasia powder in medium ash, and finally concealer. Concealer is my best friend on these days. I apply it on any red spots, blemishes and of course under the eyes. And Viola, no makeup! On days like these, you can trick people into thinking your skin is flawless and free of imperfections! What do you wear on a day like this? Happy Sunday! xoxxo
In honor of all the love going around for Mothers Day, I wanted to write about what I am loving beauty wise. I hope everyone is thinking about their moms, spoiling a mom or just enjoying this beautiful spring day with a mother. The items below are beauty bits that have not left my face (or nails) since April! I highly recommend each and every item because it puts a smile on my face and love to my skin.
This beauty is a god-send! I always wanted something to keep my eyeshadow on all day besides using a liquid primer. This is what I am currently using and loving for my eye-primer. What is nice about this beauty is that it also can be used alone, as an eye-shadow. The color is called "02 Halo". It has a smooth mousse-like consistency and at the end of the night, the eye-shadow is still on!
I have been wanting to try Kiehl's since December and I am so glad I finally got my hands on this baby. I have been putting this on at night and all you need is two to three drops for your whole face. You pat the oil into your face and by morning, I have baby soft clear skin. This oil is actually for oily skin! It takes away your skin's excess oils and balances out your skin's natural oils. It also takes away redness and helps with dark circles around the eyes. I can't wait to try some more Kiehl's products. (I am LOVING the Creme De Corps sample too).
I am also currently loving you and my little blog and in the summer I will be getting a better camera to improve the pictures and the quality of them. I also hope to start filming videos. On my Facebook page and on my blog, feel free to leave comments of what you want me to write about (face, fashion, food, or etc). What beauty items are you currently loving at the moment? Happy Mother's Day! xoxooxox
