Current Makeup OBSESSION

For those of you who have been hanging with me for a while, you know that I have been dragging my feet about changing over to nontoxic makeup.  I’ve just been on a never ending quest to find nontoxic makeup that actually WORKS.. and that’s a first world issue, it really is.  I mean, you could spend a ton of money on all nontoxic organic makeup that does not work.  And if it doesn’t work, what the heck is the point, right? I’d rather just be a total rebel and go all natural, but we all know that’s not happening, lol!

I found some really, really good stuff lately.. and so I did a complete makeup overhaul!

Watch the LIVE Tutorial HERE.

I have drawers and drawers, and beautiful displays of all my makeup that I’ve accumulated over the years that I want to keep using, but I also wanted to transition into something else.  I thought I was going to do that slowly, I thought that I was going to get one piece of really great makeup at a time and just slowly transition from all current make up .. Turns out.. I have no transitional speed. I have none of that.  So what I did was, I went out and I got it ALL in one day, because that’s just how I roll. I should have known that that was how it’s going to go down. Literally.. I got it all in ONE day.

First up..

RMS Beauty – lip2cheek in Beloved.

This joker is a total time saver because it’s for your cheeks AND your lips!  Don’t freak out about the color and think you can’t wear it because I just put this color on my mom last weekend and she looked fresh as a daisy!  Fresh as a DAISY.  Anyone can wear this color!  It makes your skin look so bright and your eyes pop.. PLUS it’s all Nontoxic, organic, good-for-you stuff in here, ..  paraben-free, gluten-free, soy-free.. everything free.

It’s amazing. I will say, though.. Not all of RMS products are amazing.. but this one is. The color is called BELOVED, and yes, you can build it. I just take a little bit and blend it and build it as needed.  You can make it bright red or you can make it not so bright.  (LIVE Tutorial HERE)

RMS lip2cheek comes in a few other colors and it is my current obsession!  GET IT HERE.

I will say that I saw my family last weekend and I did a little test on this before I brought it to you fine people. I was in the car with my sister and I said, “Look at me real quick.” She looked at me. Then she looked away and then I did my cheeks and my lip and I said, “Now look at me again.” She looks at me again and I go, “I’m fresh as a daisy, right?” She goes, “Dude, you are.” Yes. Fresh as a freaking daisy.

Maya Chia – Highlight of the Day Illuminating Serum

 

This is all nontoxic. It’s basically a bronzer and it’s going to blow your mind.

It’s different from traditional bronzer/highlighter in that it comes in a liquid and in little dropper. It’s all natural, organic, and it’s the most beautiful bronze highlight you ever did see. They have three colors. One is like a whitish pearl highlight, another is like a pinkish highlight which I think would be beautiful on almost everyone, but my current obsession is the bronze called After Hours.  I wanted a bronzer that wasn’t going to make me look dirty and this is it. It’s so good. So good.

You can put it on your eyebrows or under your eyebrows. You can put it under your lip. You could put it anywhere you want!

It just gives you that all over bronzy glow.. people are going to be like straight up wondering how you turned back the hands of time!  GET IT HERE.

I found these products at a store in Nashville called Poppy and Monroe. They test everything and they only carry the stuff that actually works.

Oh! One more tip on how to choose colors for your skin tone..

Look at yourself at the mirror and then hold the makeup up to your face .. it should brighten up your skin!  If it doesn’t brighten it up or if it makes you look like washed out, or if it makes your skin look rutty or something like that, then it’s not the right color for you.  You should be able to just look at yourself  in the mirror and then hold up the color to see if it’s a good color for you.
