Highlighting and Contouring has been a major beauty trend over the past couple of years. It has always been around and has always been in the industry, but we have celebrity makeup artist and major beauty gurus that helped blow up this trend. When we think of highlight and contour we all automatically think Anastasia Beverly Hills! They have come out with major super affordable pallets of great makeup quality. I have to give it to them before they ventured into other categories of the beauty industry they were only known as the “Goddest of Brows”. I have not been able to get my hands on the latest pallet, but do have few to work with.
I love this pallet because it gives you that sun kiss summer glow all year long. I feel this one is more suited for someone who has been highlighting for a while. This pallet sparkles a lot . It maybe a little bit to chalky and glittery for a bigger , but over all I LOVE it. You can apply this on your body for a glow.
I personally love this pallet and would aim for a bigger to start using because the colors are so soft . I love how they just sit well on the skin without them being to much or to little.Remember it’s all up to you how much you pick up.
Ok so Sun Dipped is one of my favorites because it has more of a bronze contour effect. Great for a biggenir and offers a variety of different shades to create different looks. Remember like I mention above it all depends on how much you decide to pick up.
Finally the brush to get for all this wonderful highlight is Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 brush. This brush picks up the right amount and is small enough to reach creases and areas where you only want to apply the high light without feeling like you dipped your whole face .
I am loving this moisturiser from Kiehl’s “Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream”. I love how it smells like honey! It smells so yummy you want to it lol. This moisturizer is so lightweight and hydrating. This moisturizer is known to smooth the skin surface, smooth fine lines, and strengthen the skin for youthful vitality according to kiehls.com. It is made with korean red ginseng root which is known to accelerate cell renewal. Which is known to help the skin give a vibrant glow.Another ingredient is New Zealand Manuka Honey which is known to strengthen the skin barrier to smooth any fine lines.
I have been using this moisturiser for both day and night and my skin has had improvements. Not only is the moisturiser light weight, but it is very hydrating. A little bit goes a long way to hydrate neck and face evenly. I tend to use half the amount of the size of a dime which is plenty for my skin. I warm up the moisturizer within my fingers and dab on to cheeks, forehead, and chin. I massage in circular motions until I reach my neck. If I am using this during the daytime I follow up with an spf. Since I have oily combination skin this moisturizer is not heavy at all. I feel it really hydrates my skin and leaves it silky smooth.
If you are looking for an instant glow try Origins Original Skin Retexturizing mask with Rose Clay. Not only does it smell rosie ,but it will help vanish any visible pores.This mask will deeply help clean skin while refining skin’s texture and restoring skin’s natural radiance. This amazing mask has mediterranean rose clay, Canadian willow herb, and exfoliating jojoba beads. Don’t worry the jojoba beads are so gentle that will still deep clean your skin. To apply gently wash your skin and pat dry. Add a decent amount of this mask and massage onto skin allowing the product to sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed rinse off with warm water and apply moisturizer.
If you are like many people whos skin becomes dryer once the temperature drops. I suggest you use Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm by Kiehl’s. This moisture balm will keep your skin hydrated during the freezing weather. It is known that when this moisuture balm was created it was tested in cold weathers to see if it was effective. The moisterizer is so gentle and comfortable to the skin. It is also very rich in creaming without the streaky olines that we find after using an over moisterizing cream. Your skin will absorb the moisture and help retain skins natural moisture. This product is formulated with Edelweiss Flower extract. This extract is known to thrive in high altitudes of the Swiss Alps according to the Kiehl’s website. What I enjoy about this balm is not only does it provide 24 hour hydration ,but it helps strengthen the skin’s barrier to look in hydration.
Mr Right is a soft bristle brush with a delicate wand and a cute little bow tie. This brush is perfect to be used wet or dry. What I liked about this brush is that the bristles don’t harden after wash and it does not shed. You can you this brush to set under eye concealer and create precise contour. You can purchase this brush at toofaced.com for $36.
I used my Lipstick and added eyeshadow to impact the color
For this post I was inspired by everything mermaid and tropical. One of my favorite things to do is going to Disneyland or anything Disney related. I have always been fascinated by mermaids. I happen to have my Urban Decay Electric Palette and rather than creating a more everyday wear look I decided to get creative. I mean who couldn’t look at these amazing vibrant colors….
