Vita Liberata

Are you wanting a tan without having to lay out in the sun? If so, keep on reading. I honestly hate all self tanners! They smell, get messy, stain your clothes and become blotchy. I cautiously tried out the Vita Liberata Body Blur and it is PERFECTION! This is not a paid post, but a testament of my love for the product. Check out the photo below. I used very little product and instantly got a good medium based tan. No streaks, no stains and mess-free. 

 

Banish Acne Scars

I’ve been loving my Banish Skincare treatment!! I don’t have acne but get frequent breakouts and I find that the enzyme and charcoal mask help prevent and get rid of the impurities in my skin. Check ur out now at the link below. You’ll thank me later! #banishacnescars

No-makeup makeup

Want to achieve that no makeup, makeup look? Check out the following photo and product breakdown to achieve the look.

Prep your skin with your daily skin routine and make sure you have beautiful hydrated skin. Use a Beauty oil of your liking and apply a few drops to the palm of your hands and press it in to the skin until it is fully absorbed. Use the Anastasia cream stick foundation and apply three swatches over your face– both checks and your forehead. Take your favourite blending brush and blend until you have a beautiful sheer coverage. Once complete, use a powder puff or a dry beauty blender and pat it on the skin. This gets rid of excess oil and foundation. Apply a bit of highlighter and bronzer if you would like. I just applied the Aurora Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Use the same bronzer and highlight over your eye lids for a harmonious look. Lips and brows are up to you– you can pick a bold lip and brow or go natural like I have above.  ūüíč

ABH- Product Breakdown

If you know me, you know that I LOVE all of Anastasia’s Products. When she came out with her foundation sticks I was thrilled. To your surprise, I fell in love with the foundation as well. ¬†Coverage is buildable and I use a synthetic foundation buffing brush to apply and set it with a wet beauty blender. You always want to make sure you use the right tools for this product. If you have dry to combination skin, use a beauty oil first then apply the foundation. If you have oily prone skin, make sure that you set the foundation. They are multi-purposeful and can be used for contour and highlight as well.

 

Oil Recommendation: ABH beauty Oil, Josie Argon Or Boscia Beauty Oil!!

Setting Powder: Kat Von D Transluncent powder or Laura Mercier Translucent

NYX

imageI love a bold red lip. This is ‘Bloody Mary’ by NYX!!!! A matte long lasting lipstick that dresses up any makeup look. I paired the lip with some great jewelry pieces and faux fur! A great look for a fabulous night out on the town.

Estee Edit

imageI was away in Mexico for a work trip and fell in love with the new Estee Edit Shadow Palette. This palette is made with the collaboration of Kendall Jenner. Two of the shadows in the palette will ‘glow in the dark’ apparently. I have yet to play with that but when I do I’ll blog about it. ¬†Rocking the pallete in this photo, if you’ve tried it let me know your thoughts.
