READY FOR SUMMER FUN! I was inspired by the scorching hot weather here in Las Vegas and I needed a way to cover up because I got a MAJOR breakout all over my under eye area the day before. I have to be honest guys I cheated one day and used L’oreal Infallible on my under eyes and T-zone area. I was always impressed by how it brightened up my face and I was in a rush and knew I was going to sweat during my graduation ceremony so I took precautions. BAD BAD MISTAKE! I finally had my last reassurance and confirmation that Green is DEF the way to go! If I need to use some of my conventional favorite products every once in a while, it should be very minimal and something that will not last all day on my face. The outcome was very painful and irritating so I remedied my mistake and used an exfoliating and then a hydrating super recovering mask as I let cucumber eye patch lay and sooth my pains! (More on my skincare routine soon!)
To make a long story short my parents were visiting and we were headed to the pool and I could NOT look a hot mess. The skincare routine really helped but I was terrified of using any more makeup to cover up the redness and tiny bumps surrounding my eye area. So I went with a J.Lo Glow inspired look, very minimal natural glowing from within type of look. I was on a mission to prove I could get the same results if not BETTER using green products and I sure did a damn good job! I def will not be going back.
Listed below are all products used and links to where to buy them!
-No primer this time just the wonderful soothing RMS Living Luminizer on the points of my face where the sun naturally hits.
-As per usual Jane Iredale Enlighten Concealer used for covering up dark spots around my face and on my under eyes.
– Janeiredale Glow Time full coverage Mineral BB Creme in the shade BB9. Let me tell you I am SOOO IMPRESSED by this beauty. It is definitely true to it’s name creating a smooth glowy canvas to start with. It is lightweight bur also feels like you are wearing a moisturizer all day, leaving your face feeling fresh and hydrated.
–Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Perfecting Concealer in the shade Sand (Ulta now has a gift with purchase).
–100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Brightening Concealer for brightening the under eye area and the middle of the forehead.
–Au Naturale blush in Apricot
-Tapped over the areas I used the RMS Luminzer, using a damp beauty blender with Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer and then topped it off with Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette sweeping my brush through all three colors.
–Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Lip Quench Rescue Lip Balm in the shade Nude. This collection of lippies are limited edition so get them while they’re hot! These are definitely not super pigmented but give you just enough tint to be able to wear alone or under another lipstick. Quench is the right word when it comes to this baby, I immediately felt a wave of hydration and moisture, Tarte uses an emollient formula that includes a combination of marine and botanical extracts selected for their conditioning and firming properties, which will explain the subtle hint of minty freshness that overcome your lips once applying.

-Tighlined my eyes with Lily Lolo Natural Black Eyeliner. It’s super creamy, pigmented, easy to apply AND VEGAN!
