Makeup Look: Gypsy Goddess

GODDESS

I recently came across this beautiful hair piece from asos that I had lost amongst my many hair accessories for quite some time. When I found it I felt really inspired to do a dramatic gypsy goddess look. Although it’s Spring here and bright lip colors are what’s “in”, I still like to rock a good dark lip every now and then!

GODDESS2

 

Prep + Prime: Start by moisturizing the skin with a light but hydrating oil. I used Sibu Beauty SeabuckthornSeed Oil and added a light layer of Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Cream (review here) on top.

Correct + Conceal: To combat my stubborn dark circles I applied Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation in “Like Porcelain” (review here) to the under eyes and on the eyelids to act as an eyeshadow primer. I also used the Kjaer Weis foundation as a concealer around any other areas that needed covering (ie: nose, chin). I blended everything out with a beauty blender.

Bronze + Illuminate: Who doesn’t want dewy skin? For an extra “glowy” look I dabbed RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (for those sensitive to coconut oil – I also use and love Ilia Beauty’s Polkadots & Moonbeams Illuminator) to the highest part of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid’s bow. To add some color to my cheeks I blended RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer (again if sensitive to coconut oil, try Ilia’s Sway Bronzer) and Lip2Cheek in “Smile” to the apples of my cheeks.

Eyes: I started off by applying a light layer of Red Apple Lipstick Eyeshadow in “Porcelain” all over my lid and brow-bone. I then applied Alima Pure Eyeshadow in “Orchid” all over the lid, making sure not to go into the crease. For my crease color I used Red Apple Lipstick’s Pressed Eyeshadow in the color “Vamp”. I blended all three colors together and lined just the outer part of my eye with the Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner. To bring out the purple from the Alima Pure eyeshadow I applied two coats of Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara in “Aubergine” and added false lashes using EcoTools non-toxic glue.

Lips: I prepped my lips with Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lipbalm and added two layers of Ilia Beauty “Ink Pot” Lipstick. I used the actual lipstick to line my lips before coloring in.

Makeup Look: Divinely Sensuous

IMG_9120xx

I reviewed Kjaer Weis’s Sensuous Plum Lip Tint a few days ago and this is the full look I wore in that review. I am a huge smokey-eye fan but it’s been quite awhile since I actually have dabbled with grey tones. I usually go for more brown colors but lately I am really, really loving grey, dark blue, purple and even black colors for a beautiful smokey eye look.

IMG_9122x

If you want to see how I achieved this look just read below :)

The Look:

IMG_9143

Face:

I prepped my skin with a moisturizer and then added Christopher Drummond Duo-Phase Concealer in “Fair” on any areas that needed concealing. Next up I contoured my face with RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer.I used my fingers to apply this creamy bronzer first and then blended it out with a contour brush. To add some color to my face, I dabbed Kjaer Weis Desired Glow Cream Blush to the apples of my cheeks using my fingers (this is my favorite way to apply this blush).

Brows:

I filled in my brows using Jane Iredale’s Brow Gel in “Brunette”

Eyes:

I used the Duo-Phase Concealer as a primer for my eyelids (this works really well) and applied a light wash of Kjaer Weis Cloud Nine Eyeshadow (a universally flattering light beam) all over my lid, focusing on the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone. I then applied Kjaer Weis Divine Eyeshadow (a matte smoke graphite grey) all over the lid, staying under the crease. After blending Divine out very well I then added Kjaer Weis Wisdom Eyeshadow (a metallic taupe shimmer) to the crease for added definition. I also applied this on the lower lash line. To add a more dramatic look to the eyes I applied Zuzu Luxe Raven Liquid Eyeliner to the outer third of my upper lash line (this is a good tip if you have small eyes and want to wear liner without making your eyes appear even smaller.) I finished with two coats of Pure Anada Mascara on my lashes.

Lips:

Using a lip brush I applied two layers of Kjaer Weis Sensuous Plum Lip Tint

Look Of The Day | Burgundy Bohemian

IMG_7658x

I’ve said it a million times before and I will say it a million times again: Fall is my favorite season. I love to change up the colors I wear and darker lips are definitely in right now. I came up with this really easy vampy look using only a handful of beauty products, a hat and some handmade lotus jewelry. This look is very relaxed (yet glamorous) and easy to achieve. Perfect for day or night. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it! I love darker lips for Fall and have my eye on the limited release of Diabolique from RMS Beauty. I also really want to try Ink Pot from Ilia Beauty. You can’t go wrong with Purple’s and Red’s in Fall!

IMG_7647x

How can you not absolutely love Fall? The leaves, the colors, the feeling in the air…. It’s just perfect.

What I Used For This Look:

photo

Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

I love this tinted moisturizer because it sinks into the skin fast and doesn’t leave over any white cast. It also has just enough coverage.

W3LL People Narcissist Foundation + Concealer Stick

I used this as a concealer under my eyes on redness around my nose.

W3LL People Universalist Stick in “Creamy Peony”

Used on the apples of my cheeks. This is such a flattering shade for any skin tone. Adds the perfect amount of flush to the cheeks.

RMS Beauty Cream Shadows in “Seduce” and “Magnetic”

I used Seduce (an earthy brown) all over the lid and up to the browbone and blended out. I then added Magnetic (a taupe/silver shadow with a hint of mauve) on the inner part of my lid and to the outer crease. I like to apply these cream shadows with my fingers first and then lightly blend with a fluffy brush.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

I keep finding more uses for this product. For this look I used Living Luminizer in the inner corners of both eyes and right underneath my browbone. I also added a tiny bit down the bridge of my nose and at the highest part of my cheeks to add a beautiful glow.

MAC Brow Set in Show-Off

Definitely -not- natural in any way but a very good eyebrow product. This is a gel that is easy to brush on and literally makes your eyebrows stay in place all day. I have yet to find a natural dupe for this or for Anastasia Brow products but am on the hunt!

Burt’s Bees Lipgloss in “Starry Night”

I am very much impressed with these lipglosses. This color is so gorgeous, especially for Fall. It has subtle shimmer and is very build-able.

Face Of The Day | Earth and Berries Look using Benecos Natural Quattro Eyeshadow Palette

In one of my True Beauty Boxes I received some wonderful products and the one that stood out the most to me was the Benecos Natural Quattro Eyeshadow Palette.The colors are truly beautiful and so vibrant. They are described as balanced shades reminiscent of the bold colors of the earth and berries.”. This palette would compliment anyone.

In the natural makeup world I feel a lot of us have a hard time finding really good quality eye shadows that are pressed. Most eye shadows you will find are loose which although I do love, it’s always nice to have a few good pressed shadows for times on the go or for a less-mess makeup routine. It’s even more amazing when you can find a palette that you can take with you in your purse for travel and/or touch-ups. This palette is Vegan and is suitable for sensitive eyes! I also used one of my absolute favorite lipsticks which is a sweet berry cool creme color and is perfect for Fall. I can’t seem to get enough of berry shades lately!

Face Of The Day | Bronzed Bohemian-Inspired Look

brittt

I did my weekly coconut oil hair treatment the night before these photographs were taken (hence the oil in my hair) but call me crazy – I actually kind of like the somewhat messy and shiny (okay, oily) hair for this bohemian-inspired makeup look. I really have been obsessed with bronze makeup lately. I love the dimension it adds to my eyes and I really love how adding bronze to my face brings out my freckles and makes me look extra sun-kissed!

This makeup look was extremely easy to achieve. Recently Rose-Marie Swift, the creator and makeup artist behind RMS Beauty gave me a tip that I have been using a lot lately. She told me to take the eye shadow farther up the lid .. over the brow bone” which will make the eyes look more contoured and beautiful when the light hits it, especially with all the different colors in the cream shadows. I was a little worried about doing this, especially with a darker bronze color but honestly, I LOVE the effect this gives. I especially enjoy doing this with the shade “Seduce”. I also opted to not use regular pencil or liquid eyeliner and to instead use a cream shadow to add depth to my upper and lower lashline which appears much more natural. This is great for those with smaller eyes.

How to get this look & Products Used:

Apply with fingers under eyes, around nose and any other areas that need coverage.

Apply a dab of this beautiful and universally flattering shade to the cheeks (and lips if desired!)

Apply “Seduce” all over the lid, over the browbone and blend blend blend. Line upper and lower lashine with “Karma” to add depth to the lashline.

Apply to inner corner of eyes and browbone for a natural and luminious highlight.

Apply this incredibly pigmented bronze shadow over “Seduce” (no higher than the lid)

Apply two coats of this mascara which smells like a field of lavenders!

Apply this beautifully moisturizing sheer rich red to the lips to make this look really pop!

Face Of The Day | A Pop Of Blue

This is a very bright and bold look and I am excited to post this because I can’t even remember the last time I wore a bright blue color on my eyelids! It’s been a long time and I know many people are afraid of wearing really bright colors but I wanted to show my readers that it can be very easy to incorporate some bold colors without it being too dramatic or scary! Summertime is the perfect time to experiment with these types of colors!

The Look:

I started out with a light wash of a matte pink color all over my lid. I then used a bright matte blue eyeshadow called “Shipwreck” from the Party Girl Eye Shadow Palette by Honeybee Gardens. I used it as an eyeliner for my top lid and winged it out a bit. I also used a matte green color called “Mojito” from the same palette to line my lower lash line and also to use lightly as a blended crease color. For my lips in the first look I just used a very light pink gloss from Benecos. For the second look, to make the look even more dramatic I used a beautiful coral color from Ilia Beauty called “Karma Chameleon which I also mentioned in one of my recent wishlists! The main focus of this look are the eyes, so I didn’t want to add a colorful blush which is why I opted for a beautiful bronze color to apply to the tops of my cheek bones and down the bridge of my nose. I added two coats of mascara and left out using any black liner as I wanted my eyes to truly pop! I personally like the bright eyes and the colorful lip combination, I think the pop of blue is perfect for summer and to brighten up your entire face! I know for some the bright colors might be out of their comfort zone, but hey, makeup is all about stretching your limits and having fun!

Face Of The Day | Purple, Bronze and Coral Spring Glow

4555

This look is really pretty for Spring and Summer months and the touch of bronze shimmer on the eyes adds a beautiful glow to the entire face. I really love this look a lot and it can easily be played up or down by adding more liner or using less color in the crease. All products used in this look with be listed below and of course all products are natural, organic or non-toxic.

PRODUCTS USED:

Face:

I moisturized my skin and then applied RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up in “11” (review here) all over my face and blended it with my fingers. For my cheeks I dabbed some RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in “Smile” which is such a beautiful bright coral color. I also used a tiny bit of Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzer Concentrate to add more color to my face.

Eyes:

I started with Benecos Natural Baked Eyeshadow in “Melange Silver Purple” and blended it in the crease of my eyes to add definition. I then added Alima Pure Mineral Eyeshadow in “Coffee Frappe” which I applied only to the middle of the eyelid and on the bottom lash line as well. For liner I used Benecos Natural Kajal Eyeliner in “Black” and to make my eyes appear larger, I opted to not use the liner on my top lash line but only on the bottom. For an even more “wide-awake” look I used RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer in the inner corners of my eyes and on my brow bone. For my lashes I applied two coats of Jane Iredale’s Longest Lash Mascara.

Brows:

I filled in my brows with Gabriel Cosmetics Eyeshadow in “Chocolate Brown”.

Lips:

I used RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in “Smile” and topped it off with Jane Iredale’s PureGloss Lipgloss in “Beach Plum” (review here). The combination of these two lip colors is beautiful!

Face Of The Day | Sheer Purple and Taupe Eyes and Sweet Violet Lips.

Untitled-1xcs

IMG_3077xxx

I have really been loving coral cheeks and bright lips for Spring and I have been obsessed with Tinted Lip Balms! I recently bought the Josie Maran Argan Beauty Eyeshadow Palette in Purple and for this look I just used two colors from the palette. For this look I started out with a bb cream that also contains a high spf and dabbed a little concealer where needed. I also groomed and filled in my eyebrows. For my eyes I started with a cream shadow as a base and then added a little bit of the light purple shimmery color on top of the cream shadow and then lightly lined my lower lids with it as well. For more depth I used some black eyeliner just on the outter part of my top and bottom lashline. I added a light golden shimmery color on the inner corners of my eyes to brighten up my entire eye area. I dabbed a little cream blush on the apples of my cheeks and applied some bronzer on top to add more depth and more of a glow. Last but not least to complete this look I used some tinted lip balm!

Face Of The Day | Natural Everyday Makeup

Untitled-1look copy

It’s no secret that I love makeup. What many don’t know is that on an every day basis I usually wear little to no makeup. I like to stick with Tinted Moisturizers especially in the winter months when my skin is extra dry and could use more moisture. This one from Josie Maran Cosmetics has been a favorite of mine for over a year now. It’s super hydrating and gives just the right amount of coverage without ever feeling too heavy. Full review to come soon.

I also don’t like to cover up every imperfection as I think it’s good to let your freckles and smile lines show through! We all have imperfections but there is no need to hide all of them! Don’t be afraid to go lighter on the makeup to showcase your natural beauty :)

With that said, I still like to add some coverage to even out my skin tone and to highlight specific areas on my face. A little bit of makeup can make you look instantly more awake and healthy! This has been my routine lately but I like to switch up what I am using every now and then to test out other products!

Makeup Used:

mu

  1. Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer in “Creme”
  2. Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer (mixed in with the tinted moisturizer for an added glow)
  3. Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in “Rosey” (used on cheeks and lips)
  4. Tarte Maracuja Concealer in “Light”
  5. Tarte Smooth Operator Powder
  6. RMS Beauty Cream Shadow in “Magnetic”
  7. Josie Maran Argan Triple Volume Mascara
  8. NYX Brow Pencil and Highlighter

face of the day | champagne smokey eyes and apricot lips

I recently received my first True Beauty Box and will be doing a video on that soon but I am loving the Benecos Lipgloss that was in the box. It is a really pretty Apricot color and it inspired me to put together this eye look which consists of mainly coral and champagne colors and a purple smokey-liner. I added a light rose blush with a champagne/rose highlighter over top. I am also testing out a few mineral foundation samples I bought from Lucy Minerals and so far I love the coverage and feel! I will try to do a review or video showing how I use it soon! It also seems to photograph wonderfully. I feel like this look would be flattering on all skin tones!

As always this look was achieved using only natural, organic or non-toxic products.
