If you missed Part 1, I talked about the Everyday Sheer Coverage Tinted Moisturizer by Marie Veronique Organics. On to my next favorite Tinted Moisturizer which I have been using now for over a month and can’t recommend enough!

My Thoughts: I only have a sample of this Tinted Moisturizer and am almost done with it. I have been using it a lot and absolutely love it. It gives a very flawless finish without any shine. It covers my skin well enough to not even wear concealer unless I am having a bad dark circles day! It gets rid of any redness at all. The only down side to this tinted moisturizer is the price. It is $50.95 for a bottle. I would recommend this Tinted Moisturizer to those with normal to dry skin as it is very moisturizing. I would also highly recommend it to anyone looking for a tinted moisturizer that has good foundation-like coverage. I also love that this gives me a beautiful glow to my face and I don’t have to set it with powder! I will definitely be purchasing the full size of this once I run out of my sample!

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:

  1. Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer in “Creme”
  2. Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer (mixed in with the tinted moisturizer for an added glow)

Favorite Tinted Moisturizers | Part 1

I was inspired by a series on No More Dirty Looks where the girls featured a series of their favorites foundations. I thought that was a great idea to do a separate post dedicated to each favorite product instead of putting all of the favorites into one big post. Instead of doing my favorite foundations I decided to go for my favorite Tinted Moisturizers as I find that they are what I reach for most of the time and what I prefer over most liquid and mineral foundations. I might do more series posts like this featuring specific products like Concealers, Mascara’s, etc. Please let me know if you would like me to do a series of blog posts dedicated to my favorite natural products and which you would be the most interested in seeing!

This will be a series of four posts featuring four different tinted moisturizers that I love and use often. Starting off this series is a product I recently tested out and have been loving- It is the Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF20 by Marie Veronique Organics.

esc_385_grande

This Tinted Moisturizer/SPF protects against both UVA and UVB rays with non-nano zinc oxide and provides a sheer matte finish that makes it ideal for everyday use.

The result is a smooth, sheer matte finish and peace of mind knowing your skin is protected.mRecommended for all skin types, Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 is the only UVA/UVB sunscreen made with 16.6 % non-nano zinc oxide. This Tinted Moisturizer comes in four different shades: Extra Light Tint, Light Tint, Medium Tint and Dark Tint.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Non-nano zinc oxide

Non-nano zinc oxide protects against the full UV spectrum, UVA as well as UVB. It works by reflecting UV rays rather than absorbing them. And, it’s highly stable, unlike most chemical sunscreens, which can generate free radicals that cause skin damage.

Pearl powder

This powder contains calcium carbonate and conchiolin, alternating layers of which create a pearl’s luster. Its light reflective qualities also make it ideal for cosmetic foundations where a lustrous finish is desired. Reflected light makes skin appear brighter, dark circles appear less dark and wrinkles appear shallower.

Oat Beta glucansThis polysaccaride known for its ability to penetrate deeply, delivers significant anti-aging benefits because it moisturizes at deeper layers of the skin.

ALL INGREDIENTS

Active ingredient: 16.6% non-nano zinc oxide.

Camellia sinensis (green & white tea), non-nano zinc oxide, vegetable glycerin, Brassica oleracea italica (broccoli seed oil), Prunus avium (cherry kernel seed oil), emu oil, Punica granatum (pomegranate seed oil), Rubus idaeus (red raspberry seed oil), Tocopherol (vitamin E), Calodendrum capense (yangu oil), Cosmocil CQ*, xanthan gum, n-acetyl glucosamine, lecithin, potassium sorbate, pearl powder, Rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary oleoresin), beta glucan, Coffea arabica (coffee fruit extract), Hydrolyzed silk (silk powder), Rosa centifolia (rose) essential oil, Citrus aurantium bigaradia (neroli) essential oil, Helichrysum italicum (helichrysum essential oil), Cistus incanus (cistus) essential oil, iron oxides

*Paraben-free anti-microbial agent

NO HARMFUL INGREDIENTS

No harmful chemicals, nanoparticles, parabens, fillers, waxes, or fragrances.

MY THOUGHTS

I went with Extra Light Tint for my fair skin and find that the color matches me perfectly. I think in the warmer months I could possibly go a little darker by using the Light Tint but for the most part I am very happy with the shade I use. The scent is very herbally. It almost smells of flowers. It can be a little bit hard to really rub into the skin if you have very dry skin like I do. I tend to use a light moisturizer underneath this for added hydration. Once it’s on the skin it’s fairly easy to blend and I prefer to use my fingers with this and with most tinted moisturizers. I really like that this tinted moisturizer not only protects my skin with healthy SPF but it also moisturizes, covers redness well and lasts on my skin all day without getting shiny or greasy. This product has also never caused me to breakout or left me with any irritated skin. After using this only a few times I knew it was already in my top four favorites!
