Four Green Makeup Looks Of March 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to talk about four makeup looks that I did this month that I had a lot of fun with. I was noticing that I have quite a few different green eyeshadows throughout different palettes, so during the week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day I did different looks using them and I’m really pleased with how they all turned out.

The first look we have is very simple. The first thing I did was prime my face using the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer, I’ve been using this primer for a while and I really like it. First Aid Beauty has a great range of products and all the ones I’ve tried have been great. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. Then I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and anywhere else I wanted more coverage. I topped that off with the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent setting powder.

For the rest of my face I used one of my favorite bronzers, the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna. This is a nice lighter brown that’s really blendable and has a nice shimmer to it. Then I went in with a Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is one of my all time favorite highlighters, it’s a beautiful rose gold that really pops when the light hits it without being too over the top.

For my eyes I started off by covering them with a little concealer and then I went in with my eyeliner. I used the Lord & Berry Velluto eye pencil in 1808, Supreme Green. This is a deep green that is really pigmented and goes on nice and smooth. I topped that with the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, applied Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker, this is a gorgeous peachy/nude in a creme finish and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

The next look is one that I found while scrolling through Pinterest and thought it would be really fun to try and recreate and I’m super happy with how it turned out.

For this look I started with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is something you can wear on it’s own, under foundation or you can use as a highlighter but I like it the best under foundation and it gives a nice subtle glow. I followed that with my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and I set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder. You get a nice smooth finish with this powder and it smells like peaches.

IMG_5291

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, this too is a nice lighter brown that blends really nicely. Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_5292

IMG_5293

The eye look is where it gets fun. To start I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, then I went into the big palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Collection and the first shadow I applied is Cream Filling, I used this as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to Oh Snap! And did that in the crease and a little bit on the outer corner of the eye. I wanted something with some sparkle that wasn’t too crazy so I went in to Icing On Top for my eyelid. It’s a gorgeous light rose gold. Then to bring in the green I went to the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette and put the deep sparkly green under my eye and for a little bit of pop I put a tiny bit of sparkly silver in the inner corner. Eyeliner wise I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion and I topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lips I used the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, which is a great nude liner, and the Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5297

IMG_5328

IMG_5249 (1)

The second to last look I did is one that I do more often than any of the others and I think it’s a fun look.

To start I primed my face with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. Then I used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder.

IMG_5299

For the rest of my face I went in first with the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, then with the Too Faced Daydreamer blush. This blush is a light/medium pink, it’s really pretty on and very buildable. Then I used the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_5294

IMG_5295

For my eyes I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer then used the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette and the first shadow I used is a really light peachy/nude and I used that as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to a deep matte green and put that lightly in the crease and more heavily on the outer corner of the eye. And I used the sparkly silver on the lid. I applied the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes with the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara, this does fantastic things for your lashes. I used the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede on my lips and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5261

And the last look I did was for St. Patrick’s Day. I had a lot of fun with this one and it looked even brighter in person than in the photo.

I started this one with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow then used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_5302

For the rest of my face I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_5292

IMG_5293

For my eyes after applying the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I used that really light peachy/nude shadow from the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette as a base, then I went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette in Hot Jalapeno and I used every shade. I first used that light matte green and put that in the crease. Then I used the dark matte green and put that a little bit in the crease but mostly on the outer corner of the eye. I put the bright sparkly gold on the lid and dabbed the light sparkly green on top of that. It made a really fun color mix. I used the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the eyes with the Benefit BAD gal BANG! mascara. For my lips I applied the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and the KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing these posts so look out for more in the future.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many green eyeshadows :).

March 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my March Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Wild Beauty. These are must have products that will be great and work for you no matter what you’re doing. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on top. The front is a see through minty green that is perfect for spring, with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Excitement level 100’ written in the same minty green.

IMG_5306

The first product we have is the Drybar Detox Clear Invisible Dry Shampoo. I’ve tried Drybar dry shampoos before and I do like them. I think they work well and they always smell good. Of course the worst thing about some dry shampoos is they can leave a residue behind so I really like the sound of a clear and invisible dry shampoo.

IMG_5318

Next we have something that I’m very familiar with, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I use this primer all the time, it hydrates the skin and gives you a great base to work with.

IMG_5319

Moving on we have the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can wear on it’s own, under your foundation or you can even use as a highlighter. I have one of these and I really like it. It smells great and it gives a nice subtle glow under foundation. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5320

The next product we have is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. This is a rich moisturizer with a luxe texture that is supposed to leave you feeling super hydrated. I haven’t tried a Drunk Elephant moisturizer but sounds like it’s right up my alley and I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5322

The second to last product we have is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. I’ve used this liner, it was forever ago, but I really liked it. It has a precise tip so you have a lot of maneuverability, glides on smooth and once it dries it’s not going anywhere. Definitely an eyeliner I recommend.

IMG_5323

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. I can’t even tell you how good this smells. It’s got the perfect mix of floral and fruity but it’s also got some freshness. If you haven’t smelled this and you get a chance, I recommend it. This is a great scent for spring and summer.

IMG_5324

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your March Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

February 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my February Sephora Play Box and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Beauty Soul Mates, which means these are products that you will fall for. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure. The front is a see through tealy blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. Heart eyes emoji 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in that same tealy blue.

IMG_5146

The first product we have is the Tarte SEA Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 15N Fair-Light-Neutral. This is a weightless, buildable foundation that is supposed to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines. I’ve never used a Tarte foundation before but I’m intrigued by this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

IMG_5152

Next we have the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer. This has Lotus Root extract and Maca Root extract which are supposed to help with uneven texture, dryness and dullness all while leaving your skin with a nice glow. I have used this before and it’s not my absolute favorite moisturizer but it is really good and I would recommend it.

IMG_5153

Moving on we have the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. This is an ultra moisturizing cream that is supposed to keep your skin moisturized and feeling like it’s on cloud nine for up to 72 hours. I really like Peter Thomas Roth as a brand, they make some amazing skincare, so I’m excited to try this.

IMG_5154

The next product we have is the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder. This is one of my favorite setting powders and has been for a while. It’s weightless, takes away unwanted shine and it’s not bad for baking either.

IMG_5155

IMG_5156

The second to last product we have is the Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in 5 Rosewood Gang. I haven’t worn any of the YSL lip products but they’re supposed to be lightweight, long wearing and very pigmented. I really like the color of this one when I swatched it, it’s a really pretty deep pinky mauve and I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think.

IMG_5157

IMG_5148

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This is supposed to keep your blonde looking blonde and your hair healthy. I got one of these in a Play Box a few months ago and I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet but they have great reviews.

IMG_5158

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your February Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought this would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month has been really busy, but I did manage to try new products and find some things I love. With that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below. The first favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. I’ve been using this since I got it and so far I’m really liking it. It has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate, Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and an electrolyte balancing complex to moisturize and promote balanced skin. I think the Rainforest of the Sea collection is fantastic, so I recommend it.

DCSP2

My next beauty favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I have a couple of these and I think they’re so good. They glide on really smooth, they’re long wearing and they don’t smudge.

DCSP3

My second to last beauty favorite is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is one of the best creams out there, in my opinion, it’s a holy grail cream for a lot of people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes my skin super soft. This is a product I will always recommend.

DCSP6

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fab Fit Fun Starter Box, I’ll link that post down below. This is the Moroccan Gold Series Leave-In Mask. You spray this in your hair when it’s damp and comb through. It nourishes and conditions, helps to detangle and locks in moisture. I’ve been using this since I got it and I can see a little difference in my hair. Plus is smells really good.

FFF8

My next favorite is a TV show and it’s Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road on AXS. The basis of the show is AC/DC’s Brian Johnson sits down with his musician friends and they talk about the person’s career and a little bit about their life. I love shows like this and I’ve been really enjoying it.

And my last favorite is Paul Rodgers The Royal Sessions album. I discovered this album while watching an episode of A Life On The Road and I’m glad I did. Paul Rodgers has always been one of my favorites, other musicians call him The Voice and say that he’s probably never sung a wrong note and honestly they’re not wrong. He’s been doing this for so long and his voice is so solid. The Royal Sessions album has a mix of blues, soul and rhythm and blues songs. I think it’s really fun and it’s produced so well. I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your December favorites were.

Until next time, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, following, liking, commenting, and sharing, it means a lot and here’s to a great 2020 :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: December Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be going through and unboxing my December Sephora Play Box. This was delayed because of holidays, but I’m very happy to have it now. The theme for this month is Award Worthy Beauty. These are products that are some of the best of the year. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on the top. The front is a pretty see through purple with various beauty and lifestyle objects and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white and it says ‘Good things come to those who PLAY! #SephoraPlay’ written in purple.

DCSP1

The first product we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. This has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate the skin, the Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and an electrolyte balancing complex to promote balanced skin and moisturize. I really like Tarte and I think their Rainforest of the Sea range is great so I’m excited to try this.

DCSP2

Next we have the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I’m wearing this now and I have another one of these and I really like them. They’re long wearing, they glide on really smooth and I definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a new eyeliner.

DCSP3

Moving on we have the Grande Cosmetics GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara in Black. I’ve been seeing Grande Cosmetics everywhere and hearing a lot about them but until now I haven’t tried any of their products. This mascara has Caster oil and along with the fact that this gives your lashes lift and volume, the Caster oil helps to give a glossy finish. The brush is a nice size and it looks like it would coat all your lashes well.

DCSP4

DCSP8

The next product we have is the Ouai Body Cleanser. This has Jojoba oil to hydrate and soothe the skin, Rose hip oil to nurture and moisturize and Lactobacillus ferment which is a skin balancing probiotic. This smells really good and I’m interested to try it.

DCSP5

The second to last product we have is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is a holy grail cream for so many people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes your skin feel really soft. I can’t even tell you how much I recommend this.

DCSP6

And the last product we have, this months bonus, is the Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This is a purple shampoo and conditioner so it counteracts brassiness and prevents color degradation along with boosting vibrancy and adding shine to blonde and highlighted hair. I do have blonde hair but I don’t often use purple shampoo and conditioner, so we’ll see how I like it.

DCSP7

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your December Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Blogmas Day Nine: Winter Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Nine! Today I’m going to be showing you guys my winter skincare routine. I do these posts every season, and I really enjoy them, so with that being said let’s get into it.

The first thing I do is take the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips put that on a cotton pad and swipe it over my eyes and lips. One of the things I really like about this is it has a really gentle formula so you don’t have to scrub and it takes off every long wear, waterproof product you’re wearing.

JLSP2

Then I take the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel to remove the rest of my makeup. You put this on your hands, rub until it’s foamy, then put on your face. And it leaves your skin feeling really nice.

MYSP3

My next step is to take the Caudalie Concentrated Brightening Essence on a cotton pad and swipe all over my face. This removes any dead skin cells you may have so that your serums and moisturizers can really sink in and do their job.

JSP5

Then it’s time for serums. This winter I’ve been rotating between my two favorites, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is really great at evening out your skin tone and brightening your skin and honestly during winter I feel like brightening is key because the cold can be so harsh on the skin. And the Olehenriksen Truth Serum, which has vitamin C, green tea, aloe juice and orange extract and is very hydrating and brightening as well.

OSP3

SSP7

I follow that with moisturizer and this winter I’ve been loving two. The first is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen, which I talked about 975 times during the summer months and I still freaking love it. This has a really buttery texture, it makes my skin feel really soft, hydrated and almost dewy. It’s a vegan collagen, has ceramides, alguronic acid, Mary Thistle and is free of pretty much everything. The second is the Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. This makes my skin again feel really soft and smooth. The callout is that it can retain moisture for up to 26 hours and it does feel like it moisturizes for a long time.

AUSP3

SPSP2

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I have my trusty duo of the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb and the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. The Belif cream has been my holy grail eye cream for a while, it makes my under eye look and feel moisturized. The Clinique Pep-Start is really hydrating, brightening and I look more refreshed after using it.

FSP3

APB9

And my last step is lips. For this I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla and the Vanilla Softlips. I’ve been using the Laneige more because it gives that extra moisture that my lips want during winter. But the Softlips is always really hydrating and both of these smell really good.

JUSP5

AF3

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routines and you can never have too many skincare products :).

October Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy November and happy Friday! I’m a day late with this post, but today I’m going to be doing my October favorites. October was a busy month for me but I managed to get a good mix of favorites together. With that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have two favorites from my October Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below for anyone that hasn’t read it. The first is the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I have put this in a favorites before but it’s just so good. It has marine plant extracts, which really hydrate and give you a great base to work with. And it does a great job of locking in your makeup.

OCTSP5

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is the holy grail of setting sprays. This is very cooling and helps to lower the temperature of your makeup so it doesn’t melt. And once it dries your makeup is set for up to 16 hours. It’s just the best, I will always recommend this.

OCTSP6

My second to last beauty favorite is the makeup I did for a Halloween party I went to. I took to Pinterest to try and find a look that would fit perfectly with my costume and I ended up taking my favorite elements from a few different looks to make this. I’m very happy with the way it came out.

OCTF1

And my last beauty favorite is the Halloween makeup I did yesterday. I wanted something fun and wearable but with a little Halloween twist. So I came up with this and I’m super happy with it.

OCTF5

Moving on my next favorite is my costume from the Halloween party I went to. I don’t know if you could really tell from the first picture, but this year I was a flapper and it was a fun time.

OCTF2

My second to last favorite is pumpkin carving. I always love carving pumpkins and letting my creative side come out. Normally I go for a big pumpkin but this one was more on the medium sized side but it ended up being perfect.

OCTF3

OCTF4

OCTF6

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s Ringo Starr’s new album What’s My Name. I haven’t sat down and listened to every single song yet but I have heard most of them and it’s a solid album. Grow Old With Me absolutely makes me cry every time I listen to it, especially knowing the story behind it but I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t yet.

That about wraps it up for this post. If we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great October :).

October Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my October Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Your Beauty Recipe, products that you can mix into your routine to help you look fresh and I think that’s a great theme. The bag is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through dark blue with various beauty and lifestyle objects and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Miniature beauty, major satisfaction #SephoraPlay’ written in dark blue.

OCTSP1

The first product we have is the Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser. This has kale, green tea, spinach and vitamins, essentially it’s a green juice for your skin. It’s free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes and more. Good for dry, combination, normal and oily skin. I like gel cleansers and this one is really intriguing to me, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

OCTSP2

The next product we have is the Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a mushroom infused soothing lotion that is supposed to reduce redness and help to prepare your skin for serums/moisturizers. Redness isn’t something I have a problem with but I know someone who will probably love this.

OCTSP3

Moving on we have the Shiseido WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer. This is a moisturizer that uses whole carrot cells for hydration and peony root extract to prevent the look of any skin imperfections and is supposed to hydrate the skin for up to 24 hours. I was excited to try this because Shiseido is such a great brand, so I used it the night I got it. I like that it’s a clear gel, it’s light and I felt like it was quick to sink in to my skin. However, this broke me out so bad. I really don’t have sensitive skin but there was something in there that my skin just did not like.

OCTSP4

Next up we have the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve talked about this a number of times, I really like it. It has marine plant extracts, gives you a great base to work with and helps to lock in your makeup.

OCTSP5

The second to last product we have is the ultimate, holy grail setting spray, Urban Decay All Nighter. This helps to cool and lower the temperature of your makeup so there’s no melting and it really locks it in. It says up to 16 hours on the bottle and in my experience that’s true. I will forever recommend this.

OCTSP6

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Masque. This has macadamia oil to add moisture and shine and sunflower seed extract to protect your color. Basically it’s super nurturing. You put this in clean, damp hair from about the middle of your hair to the ends and let it sit for between 5 and 20 minutes before you rinse it out. I’ve been super careful with my hair since getting it done, but I am interested to try this out.

OCTSP7

That about wraps it up for this, if you guys got any of the same products in your October Play Boxes let me know which, and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Summer 2019 Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Today, as summer is coming to a close, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my summer skincare routine. I have two routines, one from the beginning of the summer and one that I’m using right now. So with that being said, let’s get into it.

So the first thing I do is take my trusty Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lips and Lashes, put that on a cotton pad and swipe it over my lips and eyes. This has a really gentle formula and you don’t have to scrub to get the makeup off.

JLSP2

Then I take the Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water. I’ve been using this for a little while and I like it a lot. It has Matcha Green Tea extract which is great for the skin and it’s soap free so you don’t have to rinse after using it. And I put it on a cotton pad and use on my whole face to remove the rest of the makeup.

APB8

My next step is to take the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence on a cotton pad and swipe all over my face. This removes dead skin cells so any serums and moisturizers you use can sink in and work to their fullest.

JSP5

Then it’s serum time. I have a couple that I really like, but this summer I’ve been using the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This serum is super hydrating and brightening and it’s full of vitamin C along with aloe juice, green tea and orange extracts.

SSP7

I follow that with my moisturizer which is Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow. I’ve been using this for a few months and I like it a lot, I’ll even use this in the morning. It has vitamins C and E, hyaluronic acid and glycerin. All of those combined help to boost the moisture in your skin while protecting it from anything nasty in the environment and preventing dryness. It’s also free of parabens, sulfates SLS and SLES, phthalates and many others. It’s also $16.00 for the full size and $9.00 for the smaller version.

JUSP2

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I’ve been using the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. This is really brightening, hydrating and I can tell a difference after using it. I look and feel refreshed.

APB9

And my last step is lips. I have two products that I use for this, for the nights when I want more I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. This makes my lips feel really moisturized and smooth, plus it smells really good. And my second lip product is my go to, the Vanilla Softlips. It’s always really hydrating and again, it smells good.

JUSP5

AF3

For my second routine, there are a few newer products, but I can honestly say I’m loving them. My first step hasn’t changed, it’s still the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover. I had mentioned in my spring makeup routine that I was using the Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover and I ended up recently finishing the one I had and I haven’t decided if I’m going to repurchase yet. But if you’re considering it, it’s quite good.

JLSP2

The next step is an old favorite of mine, the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. I used this forever, ran out, then got a sample in a Sephora Play Box and it reminded me how much I like it so I decided to repurchase. You put this on your hands, rub until it’s foamy then put it on your face. It takes off all your makeup, doesn’t leave anything behind and makes your skin feel nice.

MYSP3

Next up is the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil. Prior to this I hadn’t really used face oils but this one was intriguing to me. It has noni extract, pomegranate oil, rosehip oil and sea buckthorn oil. All of which are high in antioxidants and the essential fatty acids so it really brightens and nourishes. My skin feels more naturally glowy along with being softer and very hydrated. This is good for sensitive, normal, dry, oily and combination skin so if you’re thinking about trying a face oil I would recommend this one.

MYSP4

From there I go straight to my moisturizer, the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. This is so good, I’ve been using this since I got it and my skin loves it. It has a really creamy, almost buttery feeling when you put in on. I’ve noticed that my skin looks and feels really smooth, soft and fresh. This is an expensive product, but in my opinion it’s so worth it, especially when it comes to skincare.

AUSP3

Then I go to eye cream and I’ve still been using the Clinique Pep-Start but I’ve also brought my favorite Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb back into the mix. It’s my holy grail eye cream and these two together is just so good.

APB9

FSP3

And the last step is to use either the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla or my Vanilla Softlips.

JUSP5

AF3

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routines and you can never have too many skincare products :).

Recent Makeup Look: Purple Smokey Eye

Hi everyone,

Recently I did a makeup look that I hadn’t done before, a purple smokey eye, and I thought it would be fun to walk through it with you guys and show you what I used because it was a lot of fun and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

So the first thing I did is prime my face using the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve been using this for a while and I really like it, it helps to wake up your face and it gives you a really nice base to work with.

JUSP3

Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205 Ivory. From there I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory to highlight under my eyes and a few other places. To top all that off I used the Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent. This is probably my favorite powder, but the Laura Mercier Setting Powder is a close second. And I put this all over the face as well as doing some baking under the eyes.

RML1

For the rest of my face the first thing I did is bronze using the Benefit Hoola bronzer. I’ve used Hoola on and off for a while and it always has a place in my makeup bag, it’s so good and it gives you such a nice color. Then I used the Model Co Peach Bellini blush. This blush is really pretty, it has a nice shimmer and it’s buildable. And for my highlight I used the Tini Beauty Barfly Highlighter in Candlelit. This is one of my favorite highlighters, it’s a really pretty pink and when the light hits it you get a really pretty glow.

PSE3

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

AGSP2

Then I went in with the Too Faced I Believe In Pink palette. I’ve used one or two colors from this palette but haven’t really played with it too much. The first color I used was Spoiled Rotten and I put that in the crease and down on the eyelid but not all the way down. Then I used Wish For It on the outer edge and brought that in about halfway on the lid and blended. I then took Pink Christmas and put it in the inner corner and out to where Wish For It was and blended lightly where those two shadows met. Because I wanted a little more of a shimmer, I took Pearl from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and put a bit of that on top of Pink Christmas. As for eyeliner, I used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Benefit BAD gal BANG! mascara was next and lipstick wise I used the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker. I love the Colourpop Lippie Stix, this one is a gorgeous peachy shade, super pigmented and the formula is fantastic. And I topped it off with the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing this style of post so definitely look out for more in the future.

Until next time, enjoying creating different looks and playing with makeup is always fun :).
