Step One: Draw a “V” with your favorite brightner

Step two : Pat it in and blend with foundation

Step three: Apply your concealer on top. Remember to pat it in with your finger or use your favorite concealer brush.

Step four: Really push the concealer into the inner corners to cut out the darkness in there.

Step five: Even out skin tone on lids with an eye shadow primer with coverage! Coverage is key. You want to cut redness!

Picture six: a comparison of one eye done and another not. Big difference!!

I just wanted to give a quick product shout out to Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. It is the concealer of my dreams! IT TOOK A FEW YEARS OFF MY EYES! Not kidding! It brightens, gives great coverage, and stays put all day. It is now a permanent staple in my beauty bag.

You cam find it anywhere Tarte is sold like, Ulta, Sephora,
Tarte, and QVC.

Luv,

Check in on fitness challenge and beauty product shout outs!

Sorry I haven’t wrote anything in a while! I have been super busy with wedding makeup season kicking in!

I first want to just let you know I am doing ok on my fitness challenge to myself. I will be honest it’s been hard. My kids just had their birthdays and it’s hard to eat healthy with all that yummy food around!! If I would have planned better I would have made it and made them into healthier versions of themselves. But, that didn’t happen because this time I was not organized and did everything last minute. I will be sure and not do that next time. Anyway, this week I am getting back on track and on top of my game! Please cheer me on it really helps!

I also wanted to take a minute and mention a few beauty finds I am loving at the moment. I recently bought some Nars products and I am obsessed! The Pro-Prime Skin Smoothing Face Prep as a foundation primer is amaze! This makes my makeup go on so smooth and last all day. I also recently purchased Nars Laguna bronzer. I know that everyone probably uses this already but, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought one. Turns out there is a reason it’s so popular, it’s awesome! Love that it’s not too orange or shiny. Just perfect. Onto some Bobbi Brown, I just ordered the Creamy Concealer kit to use under my eyes. It has a creamy concealer and a yellow based setting powder. I love this too! The powder is so light in texture that it doesn’t look cakey just sets perfectly while brightening at the same time. I also have always wanted to try Josie Maran’s Argan Oil. I bought the bronzing one because it’s summer and I love the bronze look. I love wearing this under my makeup for a subtle glow and on my arms and legs for some color. It’s really pretty and it’s benefiting my skin at the same time. Gotta love multi-purpose products!

Coming soon…
